        A New and Accurat Map of the World; Drawne according to ye truest Descriptions latest Discoveries & best Observations yet have been made by English or Strangers

      London: Bassett & Chiswell, 1676. unbound. Map. Engraving. Image 15 1/2" x 20 1/2". Page 17 1/2" x 22" Map. Engraving. Image 15 1/2" x 20 1/2". Page 17 1/2" x 22". This outstanding double-hemisphere map sets world geography in the context of astronomy and mythology. Published in 1651 and building on the insight and practices of Dutch Golden Age cartography, it is one of the earliest and most impressive English-language world maps. It illustrates both the known and the unknown: the detailed coasts of New England and New France are offset by scattered knowledge of North America's west coast, and the in-depth rendering of Africa and Asia is balanced by the little-explored "almost third part of the world" labelled here as "the Southerne Unknowne Land," not to mention the Arctic north. Scattered texts tell the history of important discoveries by Columbus, Magellan, Sir Francis Drake, and others, and they are complemented by small portraits of some of these important figures around the border of the map. All of this impressive terrestrial information is surrounded by images and ideas of the heavens. Constellation maps of the northern and southern hemispheres are flanked by illustrations of the four elements: water, earth, fire and air. Diagrams in the corners of the map describe solar and lunar eclipses and other astronomical knowledge. In this hard-to-find uncolored state, the map reveals its fineness of its engraving and design. The map is in very good condition with no chips or tears. Discoloration at margin edges, not affecting the image. State 4 English text verso. John Speed (1552-1629), born in Cheshire and a tailor by profession until he was 50, is widely considered to be the most famous English cartographer of the 17th century. He is noted for placing England in the mainstream of map publishing, an industry which was at the time dominated by the Dutch.

Die Kupfertafeln gehen teilweise auf die Selenographie von Hevelius zurück, dem Francisci dieses Werk widmet, den er überschwänglich preist und zu dessen Popularisierung er damit wesentlich beiträgt. Die Bandbreite der diskutierten Meinungen wird durch die gleichberechtigte Nebeneinanderstellung des geozentrischen und des heliozentrischen Systems anschaulich dokumentiert. Daneben beschäftigt sich das Lust-Haus auf über 100 Seiten mit der Physiognomie und Geologie des Mondes. - Der vorwiegend in Nürnberg lebende Francisci (1627-1694) wurde von Gottsched zu den einflussreichsten Autoren der Barockzeit gezählt. - Frontispiz und Titel mit kleinen Randfehlstellen und auf Japanpapier aufgezogen. Die beiden folgenden Blätter gering angerändert. Eine Tafel mit restauriertem Durchriss. Stellenweise leicht gebräunt. Ein Textblatt mit braunem Fleck in der rechten unteren Ecke. Vorsätze erneuert. Einband gering fleckig und die vorderen Kanten mit kleinen Aufplatzungen. Insgesamt, trotz der angegebenen Mängel, schönes und gut erhaltenes Exemplar. - Dünnhaupt II, 1535, 26 (mit 26 Kupfern); VD17 14:626716T; Graesse II, 626; Brüning 1279

        Cassandra: The Fam'd Romance. The Whole Work in Five Parts Written originally in French, and Now Elegantly rendred into English by Sir Charles Cotterell, Master of Ceremonies to His Late Majesty of Blessed Memory, and to our present Soveraign Charles II....

      First Edition. Folio. Original full leather binding. 7 raised bands, with gilt ornamentation and label to spine. A little bumping and rubbing with some splitting to the spine edge. Armorial plate to the inside front board. Various inscriptions (see notes below). Frontis engraving. There is a little nicking to the edge of the engraving. Title in red and black. Closed tear to the title page. [viii], 1-576. pages. Most of the book is clean and tidy, but with a little marking to the last few pages. Overal a decent copy. A gift and legacy of the Earls of Lindsay. An old inked inscription to verso of the Frontis states "The legacy of King Charles the 1st to Montague Earl of Lindsey. L. M. Bertie." There is another copy of Bertie's signature on the book dated 1732. This would appear to be Capt. Lord Montagu Bertie (died 1753). He was the great grandson of the Earl referred to. (Montagu Bertie, 2nd Earl of Lindsey). The term "legacy" here cannot be taken literally, and is more likely to refer to the statement to the title. Both the King and the Earl were dead by the time of publication of the book. A large armorial plate to the inside front board states "The Hon. James Bertie esq. of Westminster. Second son to James late Earl of Abingdon 1702." These were the son and grandson of Montague the second earl A further inscription to the inside front board states "The gift of Montague Earl of Abingdon to Charles Bertie Rector of Uffington." Charles another of the sons of the second earl (and brother of James whose bookplate is here) - so the book would appear to have moved around the family. The important relative here is Montagu (or Montague) Bertie, 2nd Earl of Lindsay. He was a Royalist, courtier, Member of Parliament and Gentleman of the Privy Chamber. He fought for Charles in the Civil War and was wounded at Naseby. He remained at the side of the King through the war, his surrender, imprisonment and execution.

      Jenae, ex Officina Orientali Samuelis Krebsii, 1676. - Title page and 38 unnumbered pages of text. Half cloth binding from around 1870 with gilt spine-lettering and marbled boards.

A particularly scarce and hardly known work, preceding Ludolf's famous publication on Ethiopia by a full 5 years and at the same time Ludolf's very first publication! - This is a preliminary outline of the material to be covered extensively in Ludolf's 'Istoria Aethiopica', which was published in three volumes from 1681 to 1693. Job Ludolf, a German German scholar, and the 'founder of Ethiopistics' (Katalog der Eutiner Landesbibliothek) gathered the most important information available about Ethiopia in his time, working for a time in collaboration with one of the Ethiopian monks who stayed in Rome. In addition to his monumental history of the country, he wrote dictionaries and grammars of Ge'ez and Amharic. His intensive studies of Ethiopian culture and life made his work the best 17thcentury source on the region described. 'A most important work on Abyssinia' (transl. from Paulitschke).

His travel-account stayed very popular for a long time because of his ample and vivid descriptions of the countries, the different peoples and anything of note concerning the animals, plants, etc. of Java, Amboyna, Ternate, Celebes, Cape of Good Hope, coast of Coromandel, Malabar, Persia, Arabia, Ceylon, etc. With fine engraved views of Batavia, Ternate, Malacca, Makassar, Colombo, Cape of Good Hope etc. by C. Decker and J. Kip. Most of them are the first accurate topographical views of these towns. Because of the bad weather the fleet arrived on the return voyage in Bergen (Norway), where Schouten eyewitnessed the attack by the English in 1665. 'Schouten was an observant traveller who explored inland into the environs of nearly every port-of-call, sometimes by himself or with a small group of comrades. His narrative, full of anecdotes as well as information gleaned about countries he had not visited, became particularly popular with readers in the eighteenth century, when it was republished in no fewer than seven editions' (Howgego p.947). 'As a physician, Schouten had a more than ordinary interest in flora and fauna and in hygiene and living conditions' (Lach, Asia in the making III, p.955). - Occasionally some minor staining, margins of 1 plate restored with loss of very small part of the image, added a plate index in manuscript. - A good copy of the rare editio princeps.Tiele 990; Cat.

        Seder Ha-ha'arakhah (Order of Assessment) [TAX CODE FOR THE JEWISH COMMUNITY OF MANTUA 1676-1679]

      Mantua (Mantova): Ha'Achim B'nei Rabbi Yehoshua M'Prushah (The Brothers, the Sons of Rabbi Yehoshua, from Perugia), 1676. First edition. Loose leaf. vg. Small quarto. Approximately 8.5x6.5". 12pp. Pages uncut. The Seder Ha-ha'arakhah (Order of Assessment) was the tax code for the Jewish community of Mantua. These tax regulations were first published in 1588 and continued to be published at various intervals until the end of the 18th century. During certain periods a new revised code was published while in other instances the standing regulations were simply renewed and extended.* This publication is for the years 1676-1679, during the rule of Duke Ferdinando Carlo Gonzaga.The Order of Assessment deals in detail with the variety of subjects related to taxation. These include: types of taxable property and income as well as exceptions, minimum taxable amounts, and those based on various goods and types of businesses. As an example, bankers or moneylenders would be responsible for a different tax rate than an artisan or a merchant. The Jewish community would calculate the total tax liability of the community and extrapolate the various sub-rates for individuals as based on the above factors for the given period. Also discussed are how the tax assessors should be elected and operate. At any given time there were usually three assessors elected by the community to serve for terms of three years. It would be these individuals who would be responsible for formulating the updated tax code, with approval of the ruler. Text printed in Hebrew Rashi script.Pages with some minor creasing along the edges. Sporadic light water stains and/or smudges along the edges of some of the pages. Pages in very good condition overall. * "History of the Jews of Mantua" (Simonsohn)*Ferdinando Carlo Gonzaga (1652 - 1708) was the only child of Duke Charles II of Mantua and Montferrat, and the last ruler of the Duchy of Mantua, of the Gonzaga family. He ruled at a time when both the French and the Austrian Empires were vying for power in Northern Italy. "Ferdinando Carlo acquired a name for dissipation and squandered the money in the treasury in his pursuit of pleasure" and "he extorted money from the [Jewish] community, bleeding them to an extent that was unprecedented in the whole history of relations between the Dukes of Gonzaga and their Jewish subjects. - "History of the Jews of Mantua" by Shlomo Simonsohn, p.67 and 69.

      Friburgi, Apud Henricum Cunrath (Angaben fingiert), 1676. - 26 nn. Bl. 4° (19,8 x 16,3 cm). Moderne Interimsbroschur mit Leinenstreifen am Rücken. Johannes Leyser oder Lyser, 1631-84, Sohn des Polykarp Leyser II und damit Abkömmling einer bedeutenden Gelehrtenfamilie, geboren in Leipzig, gestorben irgendwo zwischen Paris und Versailles nach langer Zeit des Umherirrens in ganz Europa, wird gelegentlich und fälschlich als Pseudonym des Schauspielers, Musiker und Dichters Johann Peter Theodor Burmeister (1804-1870) aufgelöst, wohl weil dieser unter seiner zahlreichen Pseudonymen sich auch Johann Peter Lyser nannte (vgl. B. Pünjer in ADB, 18, S. 526f - Eintrag unter dem Vater; vgl. auch Eymer 50). Leyser, studierter Theologe und Lutheraner, war lange Vorsteher der Landesschule in Schulpforta, die zwei Jahrhunderte später ein weiterer rebellischer Eliteschüler, Friedrich Nietzsche, besuchte. Leysers Anschauungen der Notwendigkeit von Polygamie als natur- und gottgegeben erzwangen den Bruch mit dem Vater, der Familie und der Gesellschaft insgesamt, die im Gegenzug seine Schriften verbot und verbrannte. Hayn/G. VI, 235: Jöcher II, 2629f. (Weller I, 36 - Druckort nicht aufgelöst). Bei dem Drucker "Cunrath", dessen Name leicht die Assoziation zum dem des berühmten Alchemisten Khunrath erlaubt und damit einer Mystifikation Vorschub leistet, handet es sich möglicherweise um den Hamburger Drucker Henricus Künrath, tätig 1670-93 (vgl. Gruys/de Wolf 48), damit wäre "Friburgus" die "Freie" Stadt Ham"burg". Einige kleinere Randläsuren; wasserrandig; fleckig und angegraut; Unterstreichungen von alter Hand. DE

        Il Malmantile Racquistato. Poema di Perlone Zipoli.

      Stamp. Gio. Tomm Rossi, In Finaro [ma Firenze] 1676 - In-12, pp. (48), 300. Raffinata legatura firmata Trautz-Bauzonnet in marocchino rosso, piatti incorniciati da triplice filetto in oro, dorso a nervi con titolo e ricchi fregi, dentelle e tagli dorati. Ex libris Thomas Gaisford (vendita pubblica 1890, n. 1129). Edizione originale di questo salace «scherzo» fatto di 12 cantari in ottave, pubblicato dall'autore sotto lo pseudonimo -parzialmente- anagrammato di «Perlone Zipoli». Il nostro esemplare, conservato in una raffinata legatura di Trautz-Bauzonnet, ha l'ulteriore considerevole pregio di comprendere i 16 fogli contenenti il contumelioso discorso introduttivo di Giovanni Cinelli (che fu ispirato, o probabilmente dettato, da Antonio Magliabecchi), inteso a lacerare il merito di alcuni letterati toscani allora viventi. Tale discorso, impresso alla macchia, venne unito ai soli primi 50 esemplari, molti dei quali vennero poi distrutti per deliberata volontà del Magliabecchi. L'opera, come è noto, fu pensata dal Lippi come parodia della «Gerusalemme Liberata» e alcuni episodi traggono ispirazione dal «Cunto de li Cunti» del Basile, che il Lippi aveva conosciuto attraverso Salvator Rosa. Bibliografia: Parenti, 86. Gamba, 594. Fairfax-Murray, (Italian), 1168. Brunet V, 1536. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
