With an extensivevocabulary index to rear containing a list of all the works recorded in the the Eclogues, the Georgics, and the epic Aeneid. Publius Vergilius Maro (70 BC- 19 BC), usually called Virgil or Vergil, was an ancient Roman poet of the Augustan period. He is known for three major works of Latin literature, the Eclogues(or Bucolics), the Georgics, and the epic Aeneid. A number of minor poems, collected in the Appendix Vergiliana, are sometimes attributed to him. Virgil is traditionally ranked as one of Rome's greatest poets. His Aeneid has been considered the national epic of ancient Rome from the time of its composition to the present day. Modelled after Homer's Iliad and Odyssey, the Aeneid follows the Trojan refugee Aeneas as he struggles to fulfil his destiny and arrive on the shores of Italy - in Roman mythology the founding act of Rome. Virgil's work has had wide and deep influence on Western literature, most notably the Divine Comedy of Dante, in which Virgil appears as Dante's guide through hell and purgatory.

        Carta Genererale dell' África.

      Double-page hand colored engraved map, 350 x 445 mm (18" x 14", decorative cartouche. Coloring likely done at a later date, but attractively applied, wide margins, very minor aging; a bright and clear impression. Guillaume Delisle (1675-1726) was a French cartographer who was considered one of the best of his age. He has even been referred to as the father of modern geography, and was appointed Premier Geographer to Louis XV in 1718. According to Tooley and Bricker his 1700 map of Africa added a level of accuracy that would hold value for decades to come. This map of Africa is map number 84 in Norwich's Maps of Africa. The coloring was probably done at a later date, but there is an attractive cartouche with several figures, including a man spearing a crocodile. The map is from an Italian edition of Delisle?s Atlante Novissimo. Tooley & Bricker: Landmarks of Mapmaking. Norwich # 84.

        DIVI BRITANNICI: being A Remark Upon the Lives of all the Kings Of this Isle, From the Year of the World 2855. Unto the Year of Grace 1660

      St Paul's Churchyard, London : Thos Roycroft [printer], Francis Eglesfield [seller], 1675 A fair copy of Sir Winston Churchill's famous, and rare, work on the history of the Kings of England - starting from the pre-Roman period. Churchill (1620-1688) was a devoted Royalist and was wounded serving as Captain of Horse in the Civil War. He became a Member of Parliament and was knighted by Charles II in 1664, becoming a Fellow of the Royal Society in the same year. According to one source his position in the royal household meant that Divi Britannicae could be published without censorship - but it had to be amended before publication because a section over- justifying taxation would have enraged Parliament.This copy is in full leather having been repaired at least twice - the first time to place a Russia binding over the original leather; and the second to conserve the book by rebacking and replacing the spine. Remnants of the first binding survive. The Russia binding has elaborate blind tooling and both boards survive with minimal damage. The new spine matches the boards and has blind tooling, raised bands and a gilt title label. There is a book label of Chas Ino Shoppee on the front pastedown. The title page in red and black inks with an allegorical design has been tissue repaired and has a small hole. There is a 4 page dedication to Charles II and 362 pages of text with numerous copper plate text illustrations, plus a 2 page index. There is some staining affecting the margins and some text, mainly at the very top of the pages and also the bottom third. All the text and illustrations are legible and clear. Some early pages and the index page (which has been tissue repaired) have nibbled edges.

        Naaukeurige en uitvoerige Beschryving van de Kaap De Goede Hoop; Behelzende Een zeer omstandig Verhaal van den tegenwoordigen toestant van dat vermaarde Gewest, deszelfs Gelegenheit, Haven, .; Nevens Een geleerde Beschreyving van het Klimaat en den Aaart

      Peter Kolbe (1675-1726) was sent to South Africa with a mission to provide information about the country and to do astronomical and surveying research. This set features two folio volumes, with text in Dutch, and is the first Dutch Edition.  Volume 1 - 529 pp.  Volume 2 - 449 pp plus extensive index. The books are beautifully bound in stunning 3/4 brown leather with raised spine bands, extensive gilt tooling, leather corners, and gilt rule transitions over marbled paper covered boards.  Top edges gilt.  The contents bear 2 engraved titles, 1 portrait, 6 folding maps, and 46 engraved plates (two folding). In Volume 2 the half-title and engraved title are misbound between pages 24 and 25.  First published in Germany in 1719 as Caput Bonae Spei Hodiernum, the book "professes to be a complete account of the Cape Colony and its inhabitants... His writings were the basis of nearly everything that was published concerning South Africa during the next half century.  To those who can compare them with official records of the time, they are unquestionably of very great value, but others should be careful not to rely too much upon them.  The handsomest edition is the Dutch translation entitled Naaukeurigie... published in Amsterdam in two great volumes in 1727... There is no good translation of Kolbe's work in English that I know of".  (Theal)  The bindings are in fine condition with only the slightest hints of shelf wear at the bottom edges.  The contents are extremely clean with all illustrations and maps intact.  We note no spotting and only light occasional browning.  A gorgeous, beautifully bound, remarkably well-preserved set.

        BY THE KING. A PROCLAMATION FOR PROHIBITING THE IMPORTATION OF COMMODITIES OF EUROPE INTO ANY OF HIS MAJESTIES PLANTATIONS IN AFRICA, ASIA, OR AMERICA, WHICH WERE NOT LADEN IN ENGLAND, AND FOR PUTTING ALL OTHER LAWS RELATING TO THE TRADE OF THE PLANTATIONS, IN EFFECTUAL EXECUTION [caption title]

      London. 1675.. Broadside, 22 x 14 1/2 inches, printed on two sheets. Old fold lines. Repaired with tissue on verso along vertical fold. A few other small tears or tissue repairs. Very good. A rare broadside, announcing the decree of the English government that all foreign goods destined for British colonies must first pass through England, a policy of mercantilism later termed the "triangle trade." "This program permitted the profits from colonial trade and commerce to center in England, promoted British shipping, and enabled the British government to support itself by taxing this trade as it flowed through England" (DAH III:374). The English government began its mercantilist policies under the Commonwealth government, in a series of "navigation acts" which regulated English trade. The first Navigation Act, passed in 1651, targeted Dutch commerce. It stipulated that only English ships could carry freight into English territories, and that if a ship was not English, then it could only carry goods from the country from whence it hailed - i.e., Dutch ships could only import Dutch goods, etc. Further Acts passed in 1660 and 1663, under the Restoration government of Charles II, isolated trade even further, mandating that British colonial goods only be imported to England and forbidding English trade on anything other than English vessels. This policy of trade, which was continued for the next two hundred years, marked the ascent of British colonial mercantilism and planted the seeds of discontent which resulted in the American Revolution one hundred years later. The present proclamation is an enforcement of the Navigation Act of 1663 (An Act for the Encouragement of Trade), under which "no commodities of the growth, production or manufacture of Europe, shall be imported into any land, island, plantation, colony, territory or place to his Majesty belonging". In other words, all European trade to the American and East Indian colonies of the English had to pass through English ports en route. As the law is being disobeyed, to the detriment of trade and tax revenue, the proclamation extends power for enforcement to the officials of the realm. It states: "whereas his Majesty is well informed, that notwithstanding the said Act of Parliament, great quantities of other commodities...have been, and are daily imported into several of his colonies, plantations, and territories, in Asia, Africa and America...and that his Majesties subjects of some of his colonies, and plantations, have not onely [sic] supplied themselves with such commodities not shipped in England...but have conveyed them by land and water, to other of his Majesties colonies and plantations, to the great prejudice of his Majesties customs, and of the trade and navigation of this kingdom." An important proclamation which illustrates the difficulty in maintaining and enforcing the laws central to the first British Empire. ESTC R25339. WING C3378. GOLDSMITHS' 2112. STEELE I:3619.

        Guillaume De L'Isle (1675-1726) L'Amerique Septentrionale

      Guillaume De L'Isle (1675-1726)L'Amerique SeptentrionaleAmsterdam: Pierre Schenk, 1798Hand-colored copperplate engraving31 ½" x 36" framedGuillaume de L’ Isle was the leading French cartographer of the early 18th century. He was known for both his strong belief in the importance of accuracy, as well as his prolific output of over 100 maps during his lifetime. Guillaume de L’Isle was born into a family of French cartographers, and was the pupil of mathematician and astronomer Jean Dominique Cassini. It is said that de L’Isle drew his first map at the age of nine. His first atlas, which he published at the age of 25, made an unprecedented effort to both correct fallacies of earlier maps, such as the depiction of California as an Island, and to add current data to maps. De’Isle was elected to the French Academie Royale des Sciences at the age of 27 and was later appointed to the highest honor as Premier Geographe du Roi (1718). His critical approach to the maps of his predecessors, backed by his training under J. D. Cassini, earned him recognition as the first scientific cartographer and the foremost geographer of his age. De L’Isle was one of the first cartographers to accurately show, in this map of North America originally published in 1700, the peninsular formation of California. Many of de L’Isle’s maps were revised and republished into the 18th century. This later version released in the 1798 by the Amsterdam map publisher Pierre Schenk.

        Accuratissima Totius Africae Tabula in Lucem Producia Per Tacobum de Sandrart Norimbergae

      Nuremburg: J. von Sandart, 1675. Copper engraving with early colour. Printed on laid paper. Title in manuscript ink on verso of sheet. Cleveland Historical Society collection stamp on verso of sheet. Numerous tears and creases in outside margins, which have been expertly repaired. Center fold has been strengthened. 19 ¼ x 22 ¾ inches. 20 ½ x 24 ½ inches. An early map of Africa by the great mapmaker Jacob von Sandrart, engraved by Homann. Sandrart's stunning map of Africa is a close copy of Fredrik de Wit's map, 'Nova Africa Descriptio' published in 1660. With the prime meridian running through Ferro Island, the map is typical of late seventeenth century maps of Africa. Like other maps of the period, Sandrart has included a highly decorative and informative cartouche in the lower left corner of the sheet. Homann's continental cartouches aspired to convey the natural history as well as the costume and manner of life of the human inhabitants. Here, while a woman peacefully nurses her baby in a hammock, a native chief stares out at the viewer from under the shade of a large umbrella. On the right side of the vignette, two riders on horseback, one with a cutlass and one with a decaptitated head, ride by a river where one man is attacking another with his sword. Among the humans are a lion, a snake, a reptile of some sort and another fox-like animal. Although the map repeats De Wit's decorations, it relies on Ptolemy for its description of the Nile basin. It is to some degree remarkable that seventeenth century maps of the interior of Africa were filled with geographical features and named locations, since there had been very little European exploration of the interior at this date. European trade took place at specific locations along the coast and almost nothing was known about the interior of the dark continent except through rumor. This is a fascinating map by Sandrart and one of only two maps engraved by Homann before 1690. Born at Frankfurt-on-Main, Jacob von Sandrart was one of the most esteemed mapmakers in Nuremberg at the close of the seventeenth century. He learned his trade from his uncle Joachim von Sandrart and from Cornelius Danckerts. As with this impressive map, all of Sandrart's charts are filled with a wealth of decorative details and highly ornate cartouches.

One float was pulled by elephants. The flap on the fourth plate, often lacking, demonstrates the transformation of a “marvelous tower” into “the clearest fountain,” a metamorphosis which left spectators gaping, as described on pp. 69-70 (Torre maravigliosa ... che gli Spettatori guardavano con occhio inarcato ... l'alta, e ben fabricata Torre, questa in un momento sparendo da gli occhi si trasforma in una limpidissima Fonte). & & Vinet noted that the work was omitted by Graesse and Brunet and that “Ces planches sont dignes d’intéresser tous ceux qui veulent connaître jusqu’où, au 17e siècle, pouvait aller la fougue décorative italienne, et ce que la rivalité des confréries arrivait à produire en ce genre...”.& & The overslip and the double-plate sheet have been counted as separate plates by some bibliographers, explaining the varying plate counts.& & Berlin Katalog 3222; Hofer Baroque Book Illus. 74; Lipperheide 2791/ Sl 6 (frontispiece and 16 pl.); Ruggieri 820 (13 pl., not incl. frontis & portrait); Vinet 816 (13 pl.); Bertarelli, Mitelli, pp. 141-146, nos. 641-657; Nagler, Monogrammisten II: 174-175, no. 2 (“schönen und seltenen Werk,” 16 plates incl. title and portrait); Watanabe-O'Kelly 549. &

        [Quakers Meeting] Quaakers Vergadering. Fronti Nulla Fides. The Quakers Meeting

      Amsterdam: Published by Carel Allard, circa 1675. Engraving. Printed on laid paper. In excellent condition with the exception of being trimmed within the plate mark on all sides. Light crease through center where it has been folded. Skillfully repaired tear on bottom margin. Bottom right corner has been reattached. A number of tiny tear on upper edge of sheet. Image size: 14 1/4 x 19 1/2 inches. 16 1/8 x 20 inches. This fascinating, satirical print of a Quakers' meeting was executed by Carel Allard after the celebrated Dutch genre painter Egbert van Heemskerk, the younger. The Heemskerk family of painters, originally from Haarlem, settled in London in the 1670s where they garnered a reputation for fine genre scenes in the Dutch manner. Egbert was the pupil of Pieter Grebbers for a short period of time but he was influenced more by his father, whose style and subject matter he imitated in his paintings. Heemskert continued the Dutch tradition of peasant paintings but he had a particular penchant for humorous social scenes, such as this representation of a Quaker meeting house. The cause for mirth here would not be as apparent to modern audiences as it was in the 17th century when a woman preaching seemed to many people a perfect absurdity. The dog in the lower right peeing on a stern female listener's skirt emphasizes the artist's point of view. The caption poem is given in Dutch and English. The Society of Friends originated in England under George Fox and spread to the Netherlands during the mid 17th century, a period during which Amsterdam gained its lasting reputation for religious tolerance. In this bold image, Heemskert's painting, which is now housed in the Quaker Collection at the Haverford College Library, is expertly translated into print by the exceptional engraver Carel Allard. Today Allard is better known as a map engraver and publisher than a printmaker, but his technical skill and bold style is wonderfully exemplified in this striking image. The Allard family ran an active publishing business in Amsterdam during the latter half of the seventeenth century. Most of their publications consisted of large atlases of maps and town plans by Blaeu, Jansson, and Visscher, but they occasionally issued separately published prints such as this image, which testifies to Carel's skill as an engraver.

        Naaukeurige en uitvoerige Beschryving van de Kaap De Goede Hoop; Behelzende Een zeer omstandig Verhaal van den tegenwoordigen toestant van dat vermaarde Gewest, deszelfs Gelegenheit, Haven, .; Nevens Een geleerde Beschreyving van het Klimaat en den Aaart

      Peter Kolbe (1675-1726) was sent to South Africa with a mission to provide information about the country and to do astronomical and surveying research. This set features two folio volumes, with text in Dutch, and is the first Dutch Edition.  Volume 1 - 529 pp.  Volume 2 - 449 pp plus extensive index. The books are beautifully bound in stunning 3/4 brown leather with raised spine bands, extensive gilt tooling, leather corners, and gilt rule transitions over marbled paper covered boards.  Top edges gilt.  The contents bear 2 engraved titles, 1 portrait, 6 folding maps, and 46 engraved plates (two folding). In Volume 2 the half-title and engraved title are misbound between pages 24 and 25.  First published in Germany in 1719 as Caput Bonae Spei Hodiernum, the book "professes to be a complete account of the Cape Colony and its inhabitants... His writings were the basis of nearly everything that was published concerning South Africa during the next half century.  To those who can compare them with official records of the time, they are unquestionably of very great value, but others should be careful not to rely too much upon them.  The handsomest edition is the Dutch translation entitled Naaukeurigie... published in Amsterdam in two great volumes in 1727... There is no good translation of Kolbe's work in English that I know of".  (Theal)  The bindings are in fine condition with only the slightest hints of shelf wear at the bottom edges.  The contents are extremely clean with all illustrations and maps intact.  We note no spotting and only light occasional browning.  A gorgeous, beautifully bound, remarkably well-preserved set.

      Antwerpen, Joseph Jacobs, 1675. 4to (198 x 160mm). pp. (38), 396, (20), with engraved frontispiece, 1 folded engraved portrait and 36 (many folded) engraved plates. Contemporary vellum, old handwritten title on spine. Scarce first edition, a reissue appeared 1712. "First edition of the first separate general work on fungi, describing edible and poisonous varieties. L'Escluse has done a study called 'Fungorum in Pannonis Observatorum Historia' which was first published as part of his 'Rariorum Plantarum Historia', 1601. However, according to Nissen, L'Escluse's original manuscript for this treatise with its eighty-seven original drawings had been lost by the publisher, so they had to use other illustrations for the 1611 edition, and these were quite inaccurate. Afterwards the lost manuscript reappeared and Sterbeeck used it as a basis for his work, adding much new material of his own" (Hunt 341). "Frans van Sterbeeck, a Flemish priest of noble extraction, was born and died in Antwerp where he lived for the greater part of his life. During the eight years following his ordination in 1655, while suffering from a chronic illness, he returned his attention to botany, with particular reference to fungi and soon became a recognized expert. He was on friendly terms with other Flemish botanists and in May 1663 was visited by John Ray who admired the rare plants in van Sterbeeck's garden. It was in 1672 that Adriaan David, an Antwerp pharmacist and amateur botanist (he contributed a sonnet to the collection of adulatory tributes to the author which prefaces the 'Theatrum fungorum'), took the celebrated 'Code de l'Éscluse' (then owned by Dr. Syen, professor of botany at Leiden University) to van Sterbeeck who made considerable, if somewhat surreptitious, use of it as a source of illustrations for ther 'Theatrum fungorum' in which he claimed to have based all but a few figures on direct observation from nature" (Ainsworth, Introduction to the history of mycology pp 48-49). The manuscript was lost again for a period of 2 hundred years and is now in the Leiden University library. The elaborate frontispiece shows baskets full of mushrooms and in the middle of a crowd most probably van Sterbeeck picking a mushroom out of a basket. Small part cut out of the right upper corner of the half title (no loss of text), with old paper repair, a tear in plate 10 with old paper repair on verso of plate, causing no damage to illustration. Very clear and strong impressions of the plates. Hunt 341; Nissen BBI, 1892.; Hortus Belgicus 34.

        Flowers in a Chinese vase.

      Opaque watercolour on sized parchment, 373 x 298mm., signed lower right: Pinxit Maria S. Merian. A fine original watercolour by Maria Sybilla Merian, showing a blue-and-white decorated Chinese vase placed on a wooden table. The vase is filled with double Pomegranate blossom, Passion flower, Auricula, Tulip, Iris, Garden Nasturtium, Pheasant Eye, Hyacinth, Fritillary, Rosa Mundi, Carnation and Anemone. Two beetles revive the scene. The flower species all occur in Merian's Flower Books which she produced between 1675 and 1679, when she also made some flower bouquets. This flower piece is from the a later date, after her divorse with Johann Graff, when she started to sign with her maiden name, probably from the early 1690's. The bouquet is in a more lively and natural style than in her former period. Signed works by Maria Sibylla Merian are rare.

Il primo numero uscì a Roma il 28 gennaio 1668 ad opera di un gruppo di intellettuali (fra cui si ricordano Michelangelo Ricci, Salvatore Serra, Francesco Nazzari e Giovanni Giustino Ciampini) i quali, sul modello del Journal des sçavans e delle Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society apparsi entrambi nel 1665, progettarono una rivista con recensioni delle novità librarie apparse all'estero. I soci si erano obbligati a fornire i riassunti delle opere in lingua straniera pubblicate in Europa; lo stesso Nazzari avrebbe curato le novità provenienti dalla Francia, Salvatore Serra le altre.Gli argomenti trattati in questa annata sono d'interesse letterario, filosofico, storico e scientifico-medico e sono tutti molto interessanti, curiosi ed alcuni inediti.Ne citiamo alcuni:Costanzo Amichevoli,Architettura civileEduardo Bolnesto, Aurora ChymicaPlacido De Titis, Physio-matematica?..

Dopo la sua morte, Pietro Maria Cavina (come indica Lozzi citando le proprie fonti) continuò il libro fino a trattare dell'anno 1600 e curò la pubblicazione (benché tale merito vada nel frontespizio a Girolamo Minacci). Cavina è, inoltre, l'autore della vita di Tonduzzi premessa alle Historie, e compresa nelle pagine con numerazione romana.

Även utgiven i form av 21 dissertationer 1672-75. "Priscorum sveo-gothorum" är ett slags kyrkohistoriskt sidostycke till Rudbecks "Atlantica", vars första del dock utkom först 1679 och således inte kan ha utövat någon påverkan på arbetet, men det är samma glödande patriotism som dikterar framställningen. Syftet är att förhärliga fäderneslandets forntid eller, som Bång säger i förordet: "att befria vårt högtälskade fosterland från den vanheder, som falska rykten alstrat, de där påstå, att alla våra gamla förfäder varit avgudadyrkare." Följaktligen börjar han Sveriges kyrkohistoria med Adam för att via Magog och andra celebriteter nå fram till Ansgar. Och med den djärvaste slutledningskonst och de mest halsbrytande konstruktioner bevisas så, att den sanna religionen från uräldsta tider haft hemvist i Norden. Att Adam vistats här finner han bl.a. bevisat av det gängse ordstävet: "När Adam bodde i Kälkestad"; dock vågar han, "på grund av brist på minnesmärken därav", inte yttra sig om "vad Adam i enskildheter uträttat här och vilka kyrkliga ordningar han hållit". Med de svindlande hypoteserna gjorde Claes Arrhenius-Örnhielm rent bord i förordet till sin "Historiæ sveonum gothorumq; ecclesiasticæ" 1689, men de spökade ännu i nästa århundrade i O. J. Bromans "Glysisvallur", där Bångs auktoritet åberopas
