He quotes in full (4 pp.) the letter with orders given to him by VOC director François de Haese at Banda Abbas as well as several other letters he received or wrote. He gives a detailed description of the terrain and the difficulties in finding and acquiring supplies, beasts of burden, etc., and relates his encounters with Persians, Ottomans and other Islamic peoples.In very good condition. An important early journal of an overland voyage through India, Iran and the Middle East.

        Korte beschrijving van de ontdekking en der verdere lotgevallen van Nieuw-Nederland, weleer eene volkplanting van het gemeenebest der Vereenigde Nederlanden in America.Middelburg, S. van Benthem, 1818. 8vo. With a large folding map (plate size 54.5 x 42 cm). Contemporary paper wrappers, with parts of the publisher's original printed-paper spine.

      Muller, America 1086; Sabin 38745. First edition of Lambrecht's account of the Dutch colony in America up to its cession to England in 1674, as well as an account of the fate of the Dutch settlers after the British takeover. It covers the discovery and exploration of the regions around present-day New York, the Dutch relations with the English colonies in Virginia and Massachusetts Bay, and the English takeover. New York was beginning to establish itself as America's leading city in the early nineteenth century, and a growing interest in its history made the history of the Dutch colony topical. The folding map, entitled "Kaart van Nieuw-Nederland" combines an up-to-date cartographic image based on Aaron Arrowsmith's 1804 Map of America, with historical data from maps in Arent Roggeveen's 1675 sea atlas and Arnoldus Montanus's 1671 atlas of America. In 1817 Lambrechtsen (1752-1823) was made an honorary member of the New York Historical Society, which published an English translation of his book in 1841.With occasional minor foxing, but otherwise in fine condition with the final integral blank leaf and virtually untrimmed. The sprinkled paper wrappers, covering only the sides, remain in very good condition, but the spine retains only tattered parts of the original paper spine with the printed title, leaving the sewing and the folds of the quires partly visible. A fascinating Dutch history of Dutch America.

      Ex Officina Elzeviriana, 1674 - Amstedolami (Amsterdam), Ex Officina Elzeviriana, 1674. In 8 de [18]-588-[106] (index)-46pp., reliure en plein maroquin rouge cerise de l'époque, dos lisse richement orné de filets dorés et de pointillés dorés verticaux sur toute la hauteur de chaque côté du dos, de filets dorés et de pointillés dorés horizontaux, de frises dorées, de filets d'encadrement formant des rectangles dorés avec dans les angles intérieurs de ces derniers des petites fleurs dorées, des petits lys dorés, des petits points dorés, des fers dorés surmontés de couronnes dorées, pièce de titre de maroquin marron encadrée de filets et de pointillés dorés, titre doré, mors supérieur du premier plat et mors inférieur du second plat légèrement fendus mais sans gravité, reliure ferme et solide, coins frottés et très légèrement émoussés, triple filet d'encadrement doré sur les plats avec un petit poinçon doré à chaque angle sur l'intersection de chaque triple filet, au centre des plats les armoiries dorées de Louis XV, roulette dorée sur les coupes, roulette dorée sur les bords des contreplats, deux ex-libris héraldiques contrecollés, l'un sur le premier contreplat, de la bibliothèque du château de Lux. de la famille de Choiseul l'autre sur le dos de la première page de garde, de Kerchove d'Ousselghem, un petit trou de ver touchant le texte à la page 123 mais sans gravité, quelques rousseurs, petites taches brunes et marron foncé mais l'intérieur est frais, très agréable à la lecture, tranches dorées, lettrines historiées, frontispice orné d'une très belle gravure, dans la tradition des gravures elzéviriennes du XVIème et XVIIème siècles, bon et bel exemplaire. La première édition de la traduction de l'oeuvre de Florus par Salmasius fut publiée en 1609. Lucius Anneus Florus (circa 70 après J. C.-circa 140 après J. C.) naquit en Afrique du nord dans une famille berbère. Son ouvrage ''Abrégé d'histoire Romaine" en 4 livres fut principalement influencé par les oeuvres de Salluste, Jules César, Virgile et Lucain. Cette oeuvre couvre l'histoire de Rome de sa fondation en 753 avant J. C. jusqu'à l'an 9 après J. C. Son style vif et rapide avec beaucoup de relief est principalement rhétorique, sa concision frisant parfois l'obscurité. Ces écrits sont avant tout un panégyrique du peuple romain, le ''popolus princeps" (le peuple roi). À tort considéré comme un abrégé ou un resumé des Histoires de Tite-Live, son oeuvre étant moins historique que celle de ce dernier. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Erneuerte Hauß- und Feld-Apotheck, oder Stadt- und Land-Artzney-Buch, ...Frankfurt am Main, Martin Hallervord; Königsberg, printed by Johann Andreae, 1674. With engraved illustrated title-page. With: (2) SCHRÖDER, Johan (and others?). [Pharmacological recipes in manuscript].[Westfalen?, ca. 1674]. A manuscript pharmacopoeia in German, written in dark brown ink on paper, in a Latin hand with gothic influences. 2 works in 1 volume. Narrow 8vo (18 x 9.5 cm). Contemporary vellum.

      Ad 1: VD17 23:242182F (3 copies); Waller 3622; cf. Krivatsy 4870 & 4871. Very rare second edition, extensively revised, of a practical "home and field apothecary", bound with an extensive manuscript pharmacopoeia containing hundreds of medicinal recipes. The manuscript is in several hands, but one appears to match Johan Schröder's 1674 owner's inscription in the Gogler, which notes that he is a surgeon, so he is probably at least in part the author/compiler. We do not know whether the author is related to Johann Schroeder (1600-1664), born in Westfalen, author of Phamacopoeia medico-chymica sive thesarus pharmacologicus (Ulm, 1641). Little is known about Carl de Gogler. His book is arranged in nine chapters, each devoted to a different subject, plus an appendix on bloodletting. The subjects include various parts of the body (1-4, 8), women and children (5), kinds of ailments (6-7) and kinds of medicine (9). The first edition, in folio format, was extensively revised for the present second edition and the illustrated engraved title-page added.With Schröders owner's inscription on the back of the engraved title-page. The Gogler lacks leaf L5 (pp. 169 & 170). With leaf 2[pi]1 of the manuscript detached, minor marginal damage to the printed title-page repaired and occasional minor stains, but otherwise in good condition. The binding is rubbed and dirty, with some cracks in the backstrip. A remarkable primary source for medicinal practices among the common people of Westfalen ca. 1674.

Le nom du premier se lit sur le beau volume des Statuts de la Religion de Malte, imprimé de 1674 à 1676 par ordre de Paul Raphael Spinola, seigneur absolu de ce fief et comte de Ronco. Jusqu'au siècle suivant, on a imprimé à Borgonuovo des livres à l'usage des chevaliers de Jérusalem".

He was one of the foremost intelligencers of Europe of the seventeenth century, with a network of correspondents to rival those of Fabri de Peiresc, Marin Mersenne and Ismaël Boulliau. At the foundation of the Royal Society he took on the task of foreign correspondence, as the first Secretary. Born in Bremen, Germany, he trained in theology and received his degree on 2 November 1639. His movements during the 1640s are unclear, but he is thought to have worked as a tutor in England for much of the decade. In 1648 he left England and travelled, returning in the end to Bremen. He went to London in 1653, as a diplomat; and settled in England of the Interregnum. He forged a strong relationship with his lifelong patron Robert Boyle, and was tutor to Boyle's nephew Richard Jones. Oldenburg married his second wife, Dora Katherina Dury (1654–77), the daughter of John Dury. Either through John Milton, whom he met early in his mission, or through Lady Ranelagh, sister to Boyle and the mother of Richard Jones, Oldenburg gained entry to an important intellectual circle, including Samuel Hartlib, whose extensive web of correspondents Oldenburg was to take over, John Dury who became his father-in-law, and others such as William Petty. Among Oldenburg's correspondents at this time was Baruch Spinoza, who he was introduced to on a trip to the Netherlands, and to whom he presented a volume of writings on scientific topics by Boyle. After the Restoration he became an early member (original fellow) of the Royal Society (founded in 1660), and served as its first secretary along with John Wilkins, maintaining an extensive network of scientific contacts through Europe. He also became the founding editor of the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society. Oldenburg began the practice of sending submitted manuscripts to experts who could judge their quality before publication. This was the beginning of both the modern scientific journal and the practice of peer review. Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society continues today and is the longest running scientific journal in the world. He was briefly imprisoned in the Tower as a suspected spy in 1667, during the Second Anglo-Dutch War. Oldenburg's correspondence was linked to support from the politician Sir Joseph Williamson; in part Oldenburg supplied Williamson with intelligence information. Oldenburg enjoyed good health in his lifetime, but he fell seriously ill on 3 September 1677, and he died two days thereafter at his Pall Mall, London home. He was interred on 7 September at St Mary the Virgin, Bexley. His widow died ten days later. (Wikipedia)

        Klare Onderrichtinge der voortreffelijcke Worstel-konst,

      Amsterdam: Johannes Jansonius van Waesberge,, 1674. Verhandelende hoeman in alle voorvallen van Twist in Handtgemeenschap, sich kan hoeden: en alle Aengrepen, Borst-stooten, Vuyst-slagen &c. verstetten. Quarto (235 × 189 mm). Contemporary full vellum, remnant of ink lettering to the spine. 71 etched plates by Romeyn de Hooghe, plate 6 was originally duplicated and the duplication corrected at the time by the imposition of the correct plate numbered 7, over it, so neatly is this done that it is barely visible from the recto. A little rubbed, the front free endpaper somewhat creased and with some loss at the lower corner, light browning, a few faint damp-stains in margins, occasional finger-soiling, some minor chipping at the edges, but overall very good. First edition of this renowned manual of self-defence. The work is particularly notable for the telling combination of de Hooghe's clear, but nonetheless dramatic, illustrations, and the simplicity and lucidity of Petter's written instructions. Prof. Sydney Anglo describes it as "historically speaking, the most important treatise on unarmed combat ever printed ... the finest of all wrestling books and deservedly the most famous" (The Martial Arts of Renaissance Europe, p.190). While Eli Steenput, in the introduction to his English translation (Journal of Western Martial Art, October 2000), remarks that "It is probably unique in presenting an effective and complete unarmed combat system in a format from which it would be actually possible to learn". In themselves de Hooghe's plates are remarkable, fully justifying Otto Benesch's description of him as "not only the greatest Dutch etcher of the period, but the only great artist Holland produced at the end of her classical era … one of the greatest illustrators of all time, comprehending within himself all the various faculties of the universal mind of the Baroque". Wrestling-master Petter's school of practical self-defence for the bourgeoisie on the dangerous streets of Amsterdam, clearly differentiates the book from the earlier tradition of wrestling books, such as the Ringbüchlein, or Fabian von Auerswald's Ringer-Kunst, where smiling contestants are shown engaged in a sporting contest. Iinstead the plates portray well-dressed gentlemen tangling with grimacing, sometimes armed, street toughs. Petter died shortly before publication, and the book was seen through the press by his widow, and his pupil Robert Cors, who explains the principles that lay behind his master's method; "The forces which were lent to the human understanding by nature, are not present alike in each art, and if they were, then they would nevertheless not be developed in the same way. Of two arts one is usually superior, this is in general the one based on knowledge. Most people do not seriously consider how they could secure themselves against all manner ofd abuse or assault, as might be levelled against them by evil-hearted villains, eager for violence. Our wrestler has studied this problem, first developing his mind, then looking for effective strikes and holds, by which one can defend against violent attacks with shoves, punches, or a knife. These he has practised diligently, and, to benefit the community, he has decided finally to compile this instructional book … Cruel Death has untimely taken him from us, before he could bring this project to conclusion. The images had already been prepared during his life, ordered and provided with explanatory captions to instruct the studious wrestler". By way of advertisement, Cors mentions that he is "prepared to instruct interested parties in these techniques for reasonable remuneration and be reached at the Witwe house of Nicolaes Petter on the Prinsengracht in the Gustavusburgh not far from the combat academy". Far from common institutionally, just 20 or so copies world-wide, with most of them in the Netherlands, and very rarely encountered commercially, particularly so in such wonderful, unrestored contemporary condition. This copy with an early anonymous bookplate and the later plate of Amsterdam doctor and bibliophile, Bob Luza, whose collection was sold in 1981.

      London: Printed for Thomas Williams, 1674. Small folio, (xxxii), 38, (14), 322, (20) pp, lacking the final blank leaf. Frontispiece portrait, laid down with a small piece lost from the outer edge, slightly later inscription to the top of the title page, armorial bookplate of Granville C. Cuningham, author of two books on Bacon, to paste down and noted as having been transferred from the previous binding, a more recent bookplate to the fly leaf. 20th century half roan, marbled sides, maroon spine label. "'The Advancement of Learning' was divided into two books. The first was an eloquent and powerful defence of the importance of learning to every field of life... The much longer and more important second book was a general survey of the contemporary state of human knowledge, identifying its deficiencies and supplying Bacon's broad suggestions for improvement. The book's real importance was not so much its encyclopaedic character but rather its professed aim of propagating the Baconian ideas of the advancement of learning and knowledge, and of the practical means of accomplishing it" (ODNB). Gibson 142. Wing B312. Originally published as "The Twoo Bookes of Francis Bacon..." in 1605, with a number of editions in both English and Latin appearing subsequently.

        Enquiries touching the diversity of languages and religions, through the chief parts of the world. Written by Edw. Brerewood, sometime professor of astronomy in Gresham College in London

      London: printed for Samuel Mearne, John Martyn, and Henry Herringman, 1674. Fourth edition, the first in octavo; 8vo, pp. [32], 252, [3]; full contemporary calf, sprinkled edges; extremities worn, spine with a few chips out, but in all a good, sound copy. "The earliest book to suggest the now accepted theory of the Asiatic origin of the American aborigine." It went through four editions in England 1614-1674, and six others on the continent. "The author devotes a portion of the book to the first peopling of America, claiming the Tartars as their forefathers. His account of religion in America is very curious, especially the part where he describes an old priest who baptized 700,000! Chapter XXII relates to the idolatries practiced in America" (Sabin). Alston III, 764; Sabin 7732, citing the 1635 edition; Wing B4378.

        An Account of Two Voyages to New England

      Printed for Giles Widdows, London 1674 - [8],279,[3] pp. License leaf (often lacking), errata and the leaf of advertisements at the end, woodcut printer's device on leaf preceding title. Full brown 19th century morocco Provenance: John Carter Brown (bookplate and duplicate stamp) First edition of a scarce 17th-century description of New England, including valuable observations on the natural history of the region: "the earliest work on the Natural History of New England" (Rich). Josselyn visited America in 1638-39, and again from 1663 to 1671. Though parts of his history are based on inaccurate references, the book is renowned for its first-hand observations of the natural history of New England and the description of the situation with the Indians prior to King Philip's War in 1675. Josselyn's work includes an herbal, with numerous botanical, as well as medical and surgical descriptions and is considered the "first complete description of the flora and fauna of the Middle Atlantic and New England States" (Winsor). The cranberry, wild turkey, blueberry and other northeastern species are fully described here for the first time. Besides its treatment of New England, the work is of considerable value for its fine contemporary English account of New Netherland, i.e. New York. The work also deals with the practicalities and provisions necessary for the long sea-voyage. It contains as well a catalogue of tools and supplies essential to begin a new life in the colonies.

        Kaasmarkt Alkmaar - Romeijn de Hooghe, 1674.

      KAASMARKT ALKMAAR"De Waegh en Kaes-Marckt Van de Stadt Alckmaer", ets met gravure vervaardigd door Romeyn de Hooghe in 1674, later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 41x60 cm.Bedrijvigheid bij de Waag en Kaasmarkt, op de voorgrond worden de kazen per boot af- en aangevoerd. Het linker huis voorbij de brug, ?de Witte-Os? aan de Mient, is van boekverkoper A. Hafersou waar deze prent te koop was.Veeteelt was een buitengewoon belangrijke bedrijfstak in Noord-Holland. Na drooglegging van de meren bleken de polders minder geschikt voor landbouw, voor veeteelt echter wel. In vele steden in dit gebied zoals in Alkmaar, Purmerend en Edam bloeiden de vee- en de kaasmarkten.Alkmaar was in 1573, de eerste stad in Holland die een beleg van de Spanjaarden weerstond. Als dank daarvoor kreeg de stad in 1581 van de Staten van Holland het recht een kaasmarkt te houden. De voormalige Heilige Geest Kapel werd toen omgebouwd tot kaaswaag. Vanaf die dag werd toen in Alkmaar de kaas elk jaar vanaf mei tot Allerheiligen verhandeld op vrijdagen en zaterdagen.In die periode had iedere groep kaasdragers, ofwel ? ?veem?, een eigen kaasweegschaal. Het devies van het Alkmaarse gilde was (en is tegenwoordig nog steeds): ?Een valse waag is de Heer een gruwel en daarentegen een vol gewicht is zijn welbehagen?.Interessant is ook het artikel uit de Canon van Alkmaar "Waar de kaas bequaam ter Merrickt komt"Romeyn de Hooghe (Amsterdam 1645 ? Haarlem 1708) wordt beschouwd als de belangrijkste Nederlandse graficus uit de tweede helft van de 17e eeuw. Hij was behalve doctor in de rechtsgeleerdheid en schrijver van boeken een veelzijdig kunstenaar. Hij is bekend om zijn vele boekillustraties, pamfletten, maar hij etste ook topografische prenten, kaarten en plattegronden.Kunsthistoricus Otto Benesch noemde hem ?not only the greatest Dutch etcher of the second half of the century, but the only great artist Holland produced at the end of her classical era. He was one of the greatest illustrators of all times and comprehends within himself all the various faculties of the universal mind of the Baroque".Prijs: ? 3.650,- (incl. lijst).

        Wieder-errungene Freyheit. Oder Gabile und Salibert, Heldenspiel. Auf dem Europäischen Schauplatz die Jahre her zweyfelschlüssig vorgestellet, und mit hastiger Feder beschrieben.

      O O Dr Format: 4° [62] [2] S (letzten beiden weiß) Mit Holzschnitt-Titel- und Schlussvignette Pappband des 19 Jahrhunderts mit Marmorpapierbezug minimal berieben 1674 - Europas wiedergewonnene Freiheit*** Erste Ausgabe des seltenen "Heldenspiels", veröffentlicht unter dem Pseudonym Alexandro Romano von einem nicht nachweisbaren Autor. Auch die Protagonisten Gabile und Salibert sind Pseudonyme, Anagramme für "Belgien" (Gabile) und "Libertas" (Salibert). Auch hinter den anderen "Personen dieses Heldenspiels" verbergen sich Anagramme und Pseudonyma, die aufgeschlüsselt gehören, bisher aber in der Forschung weitgehend unberücksichtig blieben: "Guwild, Herzog von Florida", "Leuthold, Herzog von Terraferme", "Orkulas, Herzog von Skandien", "Maxentius, Kardinal von Ubien", "Herbrand, Kardinal von Mymingrod", "Goldapfel, der Gabilen General", "Weditte, der Gabilen Geheimer Rat", "Milwel, des Maxentius Raht", "Klafmar, ein Postbothe" - "Der Schauplatz ist Riviera".Interessant ist, dass es sich um eine europäische Geschichte handelt, die in den Personen die Fürstentümer bzw. die Länder darstellt, die in Freund- oder Feindschaft miteinander Beziehungen eingehen, wobei das Christentum als einigende Kraft beschworen wird - eine Präfiguration zu Novalis berühmten Aufsatz.Der VD17 kennt zwei unterschiedliche Druckvarianten mit leicht abweichender Holzschnitt-Titelvignette (vgl. auch 1:086664M) und weist dem Autor Alexander Romanus noch ein weiteres Werk mit Bezug auf das vorliegende zu: "Untersuchung des bey jüngst gehaltener Frankfurter Herbst-Messe ausgegangenen Heldenspiels, Die Wieder-errungene Freyheit/ Oder Gabile und Salibert genennet, Muhtmaaßlich und ohne Theilhaftmachung gehalten von Wahremundo Neutrali".

        VITAE REVERENDIS PATRIS F. HIERONYMI SAVONAROLAE FERRARIENSIS, ORD. PRAEDICATORUM (VOLS. I-II)

      Paris: Ludovici Billaine, 1674. Hardcover. Bound in full vellum. Two volumes. 3 7/8" x 6 1/4". Fold-out plates. Books in very good condition. Covers somewhat soiled. Corners bumped. Title cards on spines in excellent condition in red and black with gilt stamping. Bound with five raised bands. Some deterioration at ends of gutters on front and back of both books. Extensive period ink handwriting on all endpapers. Otherwise, a set of clean and tight books in very good condition. Giovanni Francesco Pico della Mirandola (1470–1533) was an Italian nobleman and philosopher, the nephew of famed Renaissance humanist, Giovanni Pico della Mirandola. Like his uncle he devoted himself chiefly to philosophy, but made it subject to the Bible, though in his treatises, De studio divinæ et humanæ sapientiæ and particularly in the six books entitled Examen doctrinæ vanitatis gentium, he depreciates the authority of the philosophers, above all of Aristotle. He wrote a detailed biography of his uncle, published in 1496, and another of Girolamo Savonarola, of whom he was a follower. The two-volume set here is the latter biography of Savonarola, an Italian Dominican friar and preacher active in Renaissance Florence. He was known for his prophecies of civic glory, the destruction of secular art and culture, and his calls for Christian renewal. He denounced clerical corruption, despotic rule and the exploitation of the poor. He prophesied the coming of a biblical flood and a new Cyrus from the north who would reform the Church.

Liber Placitandi: A Book of Special Pleadings: Containing Precedents of Pleas in Abatement, Declarations, Barrs, Replications, Rejoynders, Demurrers, Issues, And Judgments, In the Now Most Common and Ordinary Actions, Viz. Actions Upon the Case, Actions Upon Statutes, Account, Covenant, Debt, Prohibitions, Replevin, Scire Facias, And Trespass. Also, The Forms of Entries in Writs of Error, Utlaries, General Issues, And Judgments, Intended for the Benefit of the Students of the Common Law, and For the Use of Practicing Clerks and Attorneys. Together With a Table. London: Printed for J. Place, and T. Bassett, 1674. [iv], 460, [28] pp. Folio (8-1/4" x 12-1/2"). Contemporary calf, blind rules to boards, recently rebacked in period style with raised bands, lettering piece and blind ornaments, hinges repaired. A few scuffs to boards, moderate rubbing to edges, repairs to upper corners, lower corners bumped and somewhat worn. Moderate toning to text, occasional faint dampstaining, some soiling to title page. Early owner signature to front free endpaper, brief early annotations to a few leaves, interior otherwise clean. * Only edition. Some pleader's manuals, such as Rastell's Book of Entries (1564), were semi-official compilations by single authors. Others, such as the Liber Placitandi, were collections drawn from various authors. Sometimes cited as Thompson's Entries, it was first published in 1671. One of its sections, "Actions sur le Case," is notable as the first treatment of torts as a separate category. Holdsworth considers it a fine example of the genre. The preface assures the reader that "[m]ost of the pleadings are Modern, having occurr'd in the Court of King's Bench, since his Majesties Happy Restauration; whereof many received Approbation under the hands of some of the best pleaders of the Age: (as by their Originals may be Attested).": To The Reader [iii].

        Natural History of the Passions.

      [London]: In the Savoy, Printed by T. N. for James Magnes in Russell-Street, 1674. First edition.. Homemade repair of a calf patch at the head of the spine in the style of an earlier repair, with a recent red morocco label to the spine; some occasional damp-staining and some rubbing and wear; a very good to good copy.. 8vo, contemporary sheep, [48], 188 pages. From the royalist physician and neo-Epicurean Walter Charleton (1619-1707), an important work engaging in part with Descartes and Hobbes, on the relationship between emotions and healthóor as Charleton has it here, ìthough it be undoubtedly true, that the Reasonable Soul hath her intellectual Delights and Disquiets apart, such as are proper to her simple and spiritual nature: yet is it no less true, that those other Delights and Disquiets that are common to her with the Body, depend upon the affections.î Once thought to be based on J.F.

Contemporary calf, blind rules to boards, recently rebacked in period style with raised bands, lettering piece and blind ornaments, hinges repaired. A few scuffs to boards, moderate rubbing to edges, repairs to upper corners, lower corners bumped and somewhat worn. Moderate toning to text, occasional faint dampstaining, some soiling to title page. Early owner signature to front free endpaper, brief early annotations to a few leaves, interior otherwise clean. * Only edition. Some pleader's manuals, such as Rastell's Book of Entries (1564), were semi-official compilations by single authors. Others, such as the Liber Placitandi, were collections drawn from various authors. Sometimes cited as Thompson's Entries, it was first published in 1671. One of its sections, "Actions sur le Case," is notable as the first treatment of torts as a separate category. Holdsworth considers it a fine example of the genre. The preface assures the reader that "[m]ost of the pleadings are Modern, having occurr'd in the Court of King's Bench, since his Majesties Happy Restauration; whereof many received Approbation under the hands of some of the best pleaders of the Age: (as by their Originals may be Attested).": To The Reader [iii]. Holdsworth, A History of English Law V:386. Sweet & Maxwell list a 1671 edition, but it appears to be a ghost. English Short-Title Catalogue R34978. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Kaasmarkt Alkmaar - Romeijn de Hooghe, 1674.

      KAASMARKT ALKMAAR"De Waegh en Kaes-Marckt Van de Stadt Alckmaer", ets met gravure vervaardigd door Romeyn de Hooghe in 1674, later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 41x60 cm.Bedrijvigheid bij de Waag en Kaasmarkt, op de voorgrond worden de kazen per boot af- en aangevoerd. Het linker huis voorbij de brug, ?de Witte-Os? aan de Mient, is van boekverkoper A. Hafersou waar deze prent te koop was.Veeteelt was een buitengewoon belangrijke bedrijfstak in Noord-Holland. Na drooglegging van de meren bleken de polders minder geschikt voor landbouw, voor veeteelt echter wel. In vele steden in dit gebied zoals in Alkmaar, Purmerend en Edam bloeiden de vee- en de kaasmarkten.Alkmaar was in 1573, de eerste stad in Holland die een beleg van de Spanjaarden weerstond. Als dank daarvoor kreeg de stad in 1581 van de Staten van Holland het recht een kaasmarkt te houden. De voormalige Heilige Geest Kapel werd toen omgebouwd tot kaaswaag. Vanaf die dag werd toen in Alkmaar de kaas elk jaar vanaf mei tot Allerheiligen verhandeld op vrijdagen en zaterdagen.In die periode had iedere groep kaasdragers, ofwel ? ?veem?, een eigen kaasweegschaal. Het devies van het Alkmaarse gilde was (en is tegenwoordig nog steeds): ?Een valse waag is de Heer een gruwel en daarentegen een vol gewicht is zijn welbehagen?.Interessant is ook het artikel uit de Canon van Alkmaar "Waar de kaas bequaam ter Merrickt komt"Romeyn de Hooghe (Amsterdam 1645 ? Haarlem 1708) wordt beschouwd als de belangrijkste Nederlandse graficus uit de tweede helft van de 17e eeuw. Hij was behalve doctor in de rechtsgeleerdheid en schrijver van boeken een veelzijdig kunstenaar. Hij is bekend om zijn vele boekillustraties, pamfletten, maar hij etste ook topografische prenten, kaarten en plattegronden.Kunsthistoricus Otto Benesch noemde hem ?not only the greatest Dutch etcher of the second half of the century, but the only great artist Holland produced at the end of her classical era. He was one of the greatest illustrators of all times and comprehends within himself all the various faculties of the universal mind of the Baroque".Prijs: ? 3.850,- (incl. lijst).

After the last English takeover of New Netherland in 1674 Communipaw became part of the Province of New Jersey, Bergen County, though it retained its Dutch character for hundreds of years. Washington Irving visited it often (at least once with future US president Martin van Buren) for inspiration. Writing in the early 19th century, he often referred to Communipaw as being the stronghold of traditional Dutch culture.
