MARTINET, Jean.
Landwehr, Romanic emblem books 504; Praz, p. 414; Saunders, The 17th-century French emblem, p. 7. First and only edition of an emblem book devoted to the Sun-King Louis XIV of France. The book is nicely produced with a woodcut vignette on title, little woodcut initials, large woodcut tail-pieces, and with borders built up out of ornamental cast fleurons underneath each emblem. And at the end of the dedication to Louis le Grand, the King's personal emblem, a woodcut sun, is added. The engraved emblems depict ancient gods and heroes, plants, animals, buildings, scenes of battle, etc. and are followed by brief poems in French. Unfortunately the second leaf is lacking, containing a poem titled "L'Arc de Triomphe", however, our copy does include the rare extra inserted emblem to Madame de Longueville. Lacking leaf A2. Some occasional minor foxing, title-page restored in the gutter and last leaf restored at the lower outer corner. Otherwise in good condition.

MARIUS MERCATOR.

"Marius Mercator (fl. 418-449) ""A Latin Christian writer, probably of African birth. A friend and disciple of St. Augustine, he wrote c.418 at Rome against Pelagius. Some ten years later, when in Constantinople, perhaps as the agent of Pope Celestine (422-432) he again wrote in defence of orthodoxy this time attacking both Nestorians and Pelagians. A collection of his writings, compiled about 100 years after his time, has survived in a Vatican MS. (Cod. Vat. Pal. 234). It consists largely of Mercator's translations of and replies to Nestorius's writings, made (acc. to E. Schwartz) for the Latin-speaking monks of Thrace, and is one of the most important sources for our knowledge of Nestorius's doctrines. Writings ed. [by] J. Garnier, J.J. (Paris 1673; repr. in J. P.

VERSLAG VAN HET BELEG VAN NAARDEN "Belegeringe der Stadt Naerden Zijnde de Eerste overwinninge die zijn Konincklijcke Hoogheyt de Heer Prinse van Oranjen heeft gedaen verovert op den 12 September 1673." Kopergravure vervaardigd in 1673 door Romeijn de Hooghe, uitgegeven door Marcus Doornick te Amsterdam. Afm. 41,5 x 53,2 cm. In april 1672 verklaarden Engeland en Frankrijk de Nederlandse Republiek de oorlog. Nadat Franse troepen op 12 juni 1672 de Rijn bij Lobith waren overgetrokken stortten de Nederlandse verdedigingslinies ineen. Alleen door een deel van Holland en Brabant onder water te zetten, de zogenaamde Waterlinie, wisten Holland en Zeeland stand te houden. Na de val van het Staats bewind en de machtsovername van stadhouder Willem III, werd met de herovering van de vesting Naarden op 12 september 1673 een groot tegenoffensief ingezet. De succesvolle belegering en inname van de vesting is hier in beeld gebracht door Romeijn de Hooghe (1645-1708). De Hooghe heeft op de plaat verschillende scenes en hoofdpersonen afgebeeld die door verklarende inschriften worden verklaard. In het midden van de plaat zien we Willem III. Hij is omgeven door zijn staf. Voor de prins ligt de burgemeester van Naarden geknield. Rechts op de voorgrond kiezen de Franse troepen de aftocht. Op de voorgrond sc?nes uit het soldatenleven in het legerkamp. In de verte het beleg en de bestorming van de stad.

S. l. [Germany]. Copper engraving and letterpress (slightly age-toned, soft folds, tiny tears in margins and in the fold) 41 x 32 cm (16.1 x 12.6 inches). A rare broadside in German language showcases supernatural phenomena in Moscow, Hungary and Germany in 1673. - This extremely rare and intriguing illustrated broadside showcases the supposed appearance of diverse and bizarre natural phenomena in the sky, variously above Moscow, Hungary and Germany in the year 1673. Each incident of natural phenomena depicted is accompanied by explanatory lines of verse below. Prior to the Age of the Enlightenment, natural phenomena were popularly interpreted to be divinely-ordained signs, or premonitions, of future events. These phenomena included the sighting of comets, meteor showers, the Northern Lights, eclipses, the apparition of weird shapes or lights in the sky, or the occurrence of unusual storms, et cetera. In the era before scientific explanations were either available or accepted by the masses, people were left to rationalise these extraordinary events, often carried away by imagination or religious fervour. Usually, but not always, natural phenomena were interpreted as portents of grave calamities, such as war, plague or famine, brought about by a vengeful God intent upon punishing sinful societies. Just as sensationally negative new stories fascinate today’s public, generating intense media coverage, natural phenomena in former times captivated the people, resulting in a rich corpus of sermons, periodical articles, pamphlets, books and broadsides (such as the present work).

Praetorius, Johann.
Arnstadt (d. i. Rudolstadt), Caspar Freyschmid für Joh. Barthel Oehlers in Leipzig, 1668, 1671 und 1673. Die erste umfassende literarische Gestaltung des Rübezahl-Stoffes. "Es handelt sich hier um das erste große Rübezahlbuch, auf dem alle späteren Fassungen – auch die anderer Herausgeber – beruhen" (Dünnhaupt). Praetorius (1630-1680) war ein ungemein fruchtbarer Polyhistor, dessen von umfassender Belesenheit zeugenden Veröffentlichungen bei den Zeitgenossen sehr beliebt waren und schon seit Grimmelshausen einer ganzen Generation deutscher Dichter unerschöpfliches Material lieferten. Auch Goethe schöpfte aus diesen Quellen, vor allem für seinen 'Faust'. Heute kennt man Praetorius hauptsächlich durch die Entdeckung, Aufzeichnung und Herausgabe der Rübezahl-Sagen. Insgesamt verzeichnet Praetorius 241 Geschichten über den Berggeist aus dem Riesengebirge. Bis heute ist kein umfassenderes Werk zu diesem Thema erschienen. Es machte Rübezahl zu einer weit über Schlesiens Grenzen hinaus bekannten Gestalt. Als Quellen gibt Praetorius einerseits gedruckte Bücher an, andererseits von Siedlern des Gebirges und Reisenden stammende mündliche wie schriftliche Berichte. Er beruft sich auch auf Informationen von Heilpflanzenhändlern, die Kräuter im Riesengebirge sammelten und dann Apothekern zur Weiterverarbeitung brachten. Diese 'Wurzelmänner' betrachteten Rübezahl als Schutzpatron und behaupteten, dass er ihre Pflanzen mit besonderer Heilkraft versehen habe. Trotz ihrer Beliebtheit im 17. und 18.

[Pacific exploration] Garcia, Francisco.
First edition of this important biography of one of the earliest missionaries of the Marianas Islands, the Spanish mission intended to serve as a stepping stone to exploration and settlement in the Pacific. Extremely rare; Medina (1637 - 1670) was the first -alongside San Vitores- missionary to travel and settle in the Islands, responsible for Spanish presence, and was the first martyr of the Marianas, just before San Vitores himself (d. Guam, 1672). This relation was published the same year as the "Exemplar vida y gloriosa muerte... del P. Luis de Medina de la Compañia de Jesus. Que passo a la conquista espiritual de las Islas de los Ladrones, que oy se llaman Marianas", taken out of San Vitores' papers; it is thus one of the most primitive and reliable accounts of the earliest days of the settlement in the Pacific and the opposition encountered from the native population -the Chamorros. The work is a first-hand notice on the Spanish attempt to colonize the Pacific, as a stepping-stone to Australia -as San Vitores clearly states in his Memorial to the King of Spain, following closely Quiros´ view-, narrated through the life, missionary activity, and martyrdom of Father Medina. Chapters include: III. Como se partio a las Indias y lo que hizo en el viage; IIII. Como entro el Padre Luis de Medina en las Islas Marianas, viages, y fruto que hizo en ellas; V. Trabaios que padecio en estas Islas el Padre Luis de Medina, y la providencia con que Dios le libro de muchos peligros; VI.

Advis Fidelle aux veritables Hollandois, touchant ce qui s'est passé dans les villages de Bodegrave et Swammerdam, et las cruautés inouies, que les Francois y ont exercées. [2], 202 pp. Illustrated with 8 folding etched plates (the last two plates with 2 scenes each) by Romeyn de Hooghe. 4to., 225 x 185 mm, bound in contemporary Dutch speckled vellum over boards, spine gilt, preseverd in a green half morocco folding box. [The Hague: Steucker Brothers], 1673.First Edition of this tour-de-force of Baroque book illustration, and one of the most powerful graphic works by Romeyn de Hooghe. The acclaimed narrative focus of de Hooghe's engravings reach their zenith in the plates of the Advis Fidelle. Philip Hofer placed these engravings on an equal plane with the greatest anti-war designs, comparable to Callot's Grandes Misères de la Guerre and Goya's Desastres de la Guerra. "One of the few and too-little known masterpieces of the period" (Fürstenberg, quoted in 'The Book Collector,' 1960, p. 432). In 1667 the French King Louis XIV invaded the Dutch Republic and advanced as far as the province of Utrecht. De Hooghe was vehemently opposed to this flagrant French expansionism, which resulted in the death of hundreds of his fellow countrymen. When cruelties committed by the French mercenary troops against the civilian population of Flanders and Holland became known, de Hooghe decided to expose the French atrocities in eight powerful designs he provided for the text written by Abraham de Wi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bartoli widmete sich vor allem der Reproduktion von Werken der antiken Kunst und kann als Hauptvertreter der archäologischen Richtung des römischen Kupferstichs angesehen werden. Er fertigte zahlreiche Zeichnungen nach der Antike an, die gestochen und zu Büchern zusammengefasst wurden, deren Text häufig von dem Antiquar Giovanni Pietro Bellori (1613-1693) verfasst wurde. Er publizierte Werke etwa zu antiken Reliefs (Trajanssäule, Marc-Aurel-Säule, zur römischen Malerei, die er in einer Art Corpus vorlegen wollte, zu antiken Gräbern, zu Porträts, Gemmen und Lampen. Bartolis Stichwerke dienten der weiten Verbreitung der Kenntnis der antiken Denkmäler Roms und bilden für za … [Click Below for Full Description]

S. l. [Germany]. Copper engraving and letterpress (slightly age-toned, soft folds, tiny tears in margins and in the fold) 41 x 32 cm (16.1 x 12.6 inches). A rare broadside in German language showcases supernatural phenomena in Moscow, Hungary and Germany in 1673. - This extremely rare and intriguing illustrated broadside showcases the supposed appearance of diverse and bizarre natural phenomena in the sky, variously above Moscow, Hungary and Germany in the year 1673. Each incident of natural phenomena depicted is accompanied by explanatory lines of verse below. Prior to the Age of the Enlightenment, natural phenomena were popularly interpreted to be divinely-ordained signs, or premonitions, of future events. These phenomena included the sighting of comets, meteor showers, the Northern Lights, eclipses, the apparition of weird shapes or lights in the sky, or the occurrence of unusual storms, et cetera. In the era before scientific explanations were either available or accepted by the masses, people were left to rationalise these extraordinary events, often carried away by imagination or religious fervour. Usually, but not always, natural phenomena were interpreted as portents of grave calamities, such as war, plague or famine, brought about by a vengeful God intent upon punishing sinful societies. Just as sensationally negative new stories fascinate today’s public, generating intense media coverage, natural phenomena in former times captivated the people, resulting in a rich corpus of sermons, periodical articles, pamphlets, books and broadsides (such as the present work).

BLASIUS, Gerardus (BLAES, Gerard Leendertszoon).
Amsterdam: Caspar Commelin, 1673. First edition. First edition, rare, and a superb copy bound in contemporary red morocco, of this important work of human and comparative anatomy by the Dutch physician, chemist, and anatomist Gerard Blaes. The first 167 pages are devoted to human anatomy, followed by the description of the anatomy of various animals. "In the 1673 volume Blasius describes the anatomy of the following fourteen types: tortoise, duck, pigeon, ox, sheep, pig, dog, cat, civet-cat, fox, rat, hare and monkey ... Blasius' observations on human anatomy are followed by eight-five pages [168-252] devoted to the anatomy of the dog [illustrated with 12 plates]. This is the first comprehensive and original treatise on a vertebrate since the publication of Ruini's volume on the horse in 1598. His reason for writing it was that owing to the difficulty of obtaining human bodies for dissection substitutes had to be found, of which the dog was one. It was hence imperative to acquire an exact knowledge of the points in which the dog resembled and differed from man. His approach to the dog, therefore, is not as a comparative but as a human anatomist" (Cole, A History of Comparative Anatomy (1949), pp. 150 & 154-5). The Miscellanea end with 15 pages of practical notes on rare cases observed during human dissections. ABPC/RBH record only the present copy. OCLC lists ten copies in US. A flavour of Blasius' treatment of animal anatomy can be gathered from his account of the tortoise. "The heart of the tortoise, he says, consists of but two chambers - an auricle and a ventricle ...

At this crossroad, she met the Pietist, Jean de Labadie, a former Jesuit who had converted to Protestantism and then founded a contemplative religious sect known as Labadism. Anna Maria was fascinated by Labadie and his ideas and she completely abandoned her former life and joined his religious community. Nine years later, she published this autobiography, taking her title from Luke 10:42 where Martha's sister, Mary, "chooses the better part" by sitting at Christ's feet rather than helping out in the kitchen.The autobiography encompassed the whole of her life up to that point, providing an excellent window into contemporary attitudes and practices (most especially in relation to women) along with a clear exposition of the religious ferment that so permeated Dutch society throughout that time. Anna Marie's late conversion to Labadism did, of course, color much of her presentation but the book is, as noted by her biographer Una Birch, characterized by "a sincere effort after self-portrayal, and of which the pages were only written after prolonged self-examination and … [Click Below for Full Description]

BARTHOLIN, Thomas; [STENO, Nicolaus, et al.]
Peter Haubold 1673-1680, Copenhagen. Rare complete run of one of the first medical journals. While Garrison lists 3 previous journals, 2 of these were published for 1 issue only (‘Medical and scientific periodicals of the 17th and 18th centuries,’ in Bull. Inst. Hist. Med., Johns Hopkins II, 285-243). Only the Giornale dei letterati (Parma, 1668-88) predates this.Among the many significant contributions, including more than 100 by Bartholin himself, are the last published scientific works of Niels Stensen. Stensen returned from Italy to Denmark in 1672 to accept an appointment at the University of Copenhagen under Bartholin. During his stay he carried out a number of experiments, two of which are published in vol. I: Embryo monstro as finis Parisiis dissectus (pp.200-3) and Uterus Leporis Proprius, foetum resolventis (pp.203-7). During his stay in Italy, however, Stensen converted to Catholicism and found himself the target of attack from orthodox Protestants. He beame more interested in theological debates that scientific research and in 1674 he returned to Florence and in 1685 took Holy Orders."The Copenhagen biologists, under the quickening influence of Thomas Bartholin, produced five volumes of transactions known as the Acta Medica et Philosophica Hafniensia, which is now very rare and almost entirely forgotten." (Cole). The leading authors besides Thomas Bartholin and Niels Steensen (Steno) were Holger Jacobsen (Jacabaeus), Caspar Bartholin, Ole Borch (Borrichius), Ole Worm, Simon Paulli, JohanRodhe, Caspar Kolichen and several others.--"In the case of many of their ob … [Click Below for Full Description]

This dramatic map is Seutter's version of Allard's map, Totius Neobelgii Nova et Accuratissima Tabula. It includes a faithful rendition of the famous Restitutio View of Manhattan which originally commemorated the Dutch short-lived recapture of New Amsterdam in 1673. The view depicts the town as seen directly from the east. On the right is a wall that eventually became Wall Street with its guardhouse and gate. Adjacent to the wall are new settlements and the Collect Pond (P), used to collect fresh water. Seutter's version has updated the scene above the view to reflect the British colonization. A long procession of natives carry American goods to the English monarch, presumably George II, who is being attended by Hermes, god of commerce, Athena, goddess of wisdom, and Hera, who is standing over a chest of coins. Shows an elaborate scene depicting natives and gods presenting tribute to the English monarch George II. The course of the Delaware and Hudson are separated, unlike early editions of the map. This is the first map in the series to show the boundaries of Massachusetts, New England, New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania with a printed line, as earlier examples had previously left the delineation of the boundaries to the colorist. Philadelphia is shown as a set of houses in relief, rather than a ground plan. The map itself is from the influential Jansson-Visscher series, which formed the basis for the mapping of the Atlantic seaboard and New England for nearly one hundred years.

PLUMIER, Charles.
Paris: L'Imprimerie Royale, 1673. First edition. First edition, first issue with the incorrect date MDCCXIII on the title page (but the correct date on the colophon). This is a fine copy in an untouched contemporary binding. Plumier was the first 'modern' botanist to describe the flora of the Caribbean at a time when natural history underwent significant qualitative changes as a result of European expansion and transatlantic contacts. He made three separate expeditions to the Caribbean, in 1689, 1693, and 1695. On the first of these he accompanied physician Joseph Surian; on the last two he travelled alone as botaniste du roi. He discovered, drew, and described hundreds of new species, and left behind over 6,000 detailed drawings of West Indian plants. Many of Plumier's generic names were adopted by Linnaeus and are still in use today, among them Fuchsia, Caesalpinia, and Magnolia. The present work, based on his second trip, was his first botanical publication. Included are many plates showing ferns and clematis. "Le Père Plumier, a monk in the order of St. Francesco di Paula, was an important botanical traveller. Tournefort and he became friends and they herborized together throughout the Midi. After that, Plumier's travels included the Antilles and several long voyages to other islands in the West Indies and to America, where he discovered, drew, and described hundreds of new plants, many of which are shown in his own books, though much of his work had to remain unpublished until Boerhaave and Jean Burmann were able to edit part of his papers, and publish them as the Plan … [Click Below for Full Description]

Mogrovejo, Toribio Alfonso de (1538-1606) translated by Francis Harold (?-1685)
Typis Josephi Corvi, Romæ (Rome). [32]+xxxiv+379+[22] pages with portrait plate facing page 1. Folio (12 3/4" x 9") bound later stiff vellum with five raised spine bands. (Volume fort rare"--LeClerc 1757. European Americana 673/105; Medina BHA 1547; Palau 112325; Sabin 30415) First Latin edition. Toribio Alfonso de Mogrovejo (16 November 1538 – 23 March 1606) was a Spanish prelate of the Catholic Church who served as the Archbishop of Lima from 1579 until his death. He first studied in the humanities and law before serving as a professor and later as the Grand Inquisitor at the behest of King Philip II. His piousness and learning had reached the ears of the king who appointed him to that position which was considered unusual since he had no previous government or judicial experience. His noted work for the Inquisition earned him praise from the king who nominated him for the vacant Lima archdiocese. The pope confirmed this despite his protests. He was ordained to the priesthood in 1578 in Granada (after four consecutive weeks of receiving the minor orders) and Pope Gregory XIII named him on 16 May 1579 as the Archbishop of Lima; he received his episcopal consecration in August 1580 from the Archbishop of Seville Cristóbal Rojas Sandoval. The new archbishop first arrived in Paita on 12 May 1581 which was 600 miles – or 970 kilometers – from Lima. He began his new mission travelling to Lima on foot while he baptized and taught the natives. He was enthroned in his new see a week later. He produced a trilingual catechism in Spanish as well as in the native languages Quechua and … [Click Below for Full Description]
