BOYLE, Roger Earl of Orrery
I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Early Irish literature imitating French heroic drama! Roger Boyle, was a 17th-century Irish politician, known for becoming the first Early of Orrery. His political importance came through his correspondence with both Charles II and Oliver Cromwell, the latter of whom offered Boyle a role in the English conquest of Ireland. He published a novel 'Parthenissa' in a series of installments, which became his most popular piece of romantic prose. It is known to be the "only serious lengthy imitation in English of the French heroic-historical romances written by Gomberville and Scudery." (Miller). This rare 1676 English edition was the first complete edition; prior to this edition, each of the individual part were published by themselves beginning in 1651. [Attributes: First Edition]

Clarendon formé cet ouvrage comme une critique, mais le travail en incontestable une attaque sur le livre de Hobbes. Selon Zagorin, « « Sondage » est un livre d'un mérite considérable et d'intérêt... et est l'instruction plus longue, plus générale de la philosophie politique qui a laissé de Clarendon. » C'est dans cet ouvrage qui Clarendon formulé avec fermeté que « Leviathan » a favorisé la domination du gouvernement usurpatrice qui a renversé le roi, et en outre, que Hobbes avait écrit cette œuvre afin de faire son retour en Angleterre de l'exil. (Zagorin). Plus de la moitié des « Enquête » traite discussions politiques et religieux trouvées à « Léviathan ».

One Portrait of Spizelio (Augsburg, 1639- Augsburg, 1691): ill. ; 8º Very rare edition of a text never translated in a modern language (it should deserve an English translation) discussing the vices and weaknesses of writers. The writers' problems are discussed in great detail, subdivided in chapters: their atheism and materialism; their pointless pride; their unhappiness; their envy; their sneering; their constant badmouthing; their avarice etc. He offered several original insights, like the often quoted fact that he accused Jeronimus Cardanus (1501-1577?) of having written a book to demonstrate the existence of the soul but using arguments so weak and faulty as to induce the readers to think otherwise. Only the first blank page shows some wormholes, the remaining 1184 pages are in perfect conditions. With 2 ex libris. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]

SPEED, John (1552 - 1629)
London: Bassett & Chiswell, 1676. Single sheet (15 x 20 inches) Full margins showing the plate mark (slight browning to edge, light foxing, offsetting, creased corner, light ink rubbing) An extraordinary uncolored 1676 edition of Anglesey; part of the renowned Theatre of the Empire of Britaine by English cartographer John Speed. This edition was published by Thomas Bassett and Richard Chiswell in London. The copper plates used for the printing of John Speed's maps were engraved by Dutch mapmaker, Jodocus Hondius, in 1610. Hondius is most well-known for his elaborate, early maps of Europe and the New World. These maps created are of the most highly sought after county maps; as they are famous for their accuracy, level of detail, and craftsmanship. This map of Anglesey is one of the best county maps available. An island off of the coat of Wales, Anglesey is considered the largest island of Wales. This is expertly portrayed by Hondius' engraving, sitting in the center surrounded by the Irish Sea and its calm waves. This map is further embellished with a gorgeous compass rose and extended rhumb lines; two full mast sailing ships, and elegant strapwork cartouches. A plan of Beaumaris is provided in the top right corner, with a legend giving the location of its most significant landmarks. Speed does a wonderful job highlighting the Beaumaris Castle, built in 1282 by King Edward I as part of his campaign to conquer the north of Wales. This town was mapped by John Speed himself, as it bares the 'Scale of Pases' as indication. The plan is decorated with the shield of Anglesey; … [Click Below for Full Description]

London: Bassett & Chiswell, 1676. Single sheet (15 x 20 inches) Full margins showing the plate mark (slight browning to edge, crease upper left corner, watermark, top right page fray). An appealing uncolored map of Shropshire County; an excellent part of John Speed's Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine. The plate was engraved in Amsterdam by the great Dutch mapmaker Jodocus Hondius, exhibiting the highest level of craftsmanship and artistic embellishment. The left-hand side of the map contains a large frame with an elaborate illustrative version of the Royal Arms. Highlighted below are the arms of Roger Montgomery, 1st Earl of Shrewsbury and William the Conqueror's principle counselor; as well as John Talbot, 1st Earl of Shrewsbury and decorated military commander during the Hundred Year's War. An elegant compass rose and scale of miles finish the frame. A particularly desirable part of this map belongs to the vignette of the Battle of Shrewsbury, fought between Henry IV and Sir Henry Percy (Harry Hotspur) in 1403. The Battle is described beneath the vignette as a framed text format. Shrowesbery (i.e. Shrewsbury) is laid out as an enclosed town plan. The town is represented with its shield. Known as a bustling market town on the Severne River, Shrewsbury is filled with squares, homes, a residential castle and abbey. An extensive key guide is included for the letters marking the significant roads and buildings within Shrewsbury. It is noteworthy to mention this town plan was mapped by Speed himself, as indicated by the 'Scale of Pases". The county maps found in … [Click Below for Full Description]

SPEED, John (1552 - 1629).
London: Bassett & Chiswell, 1676. Single sheet (15 x 20 inches) Full margins showing the plate mark (slight browning to edge) A handsome uncolored 1676 edition county map of Penbrokshyre [Pembrokeshire]; taken from John Speed's illustrious Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine. Engraved by Dutch mapmaker Jodocus Hondius in 1610, the map is a prime example of the level of craftsmanship and detail which went into the making of this Atlas. The map boasts elaborate elements to delight our eyes. A decorative title cartouche with the royal arms introduces this mountainous county to the viewer. Percelye Hill, the highest point of the county, especially stands out thanks to its beautiful shadows engraved Hondius. Two town plan insets belong to this map: Penbroke and St. Davids. The fairly symmetrical plans exhibit a compass rose and appropriate shield. Pembroke is principally highlighted for its royal significance as the birthplace of Henry Tudor, the future King Henry VII. St Davids was final resting place of Wales' namesake patron saint; making it the de facto ecclesiastical capital of Wales. The exceptional point to these two cities is that they were mapped out by John Speed himself, as indicated by the signature 'Scale of Pases'. The edge of the map sets up a selection of eleven Earls and Dukes, which ruled over Pembokeshire over the centuries. The most notable shield belongs to Anne Boleyn, who received this title from her future spouse King Henry VIII. This was the first hereditary peerage title granted to a woman in England.

SPEED, John (1552 - 1629)
London: Bassett & Chiswell. Single sheet (15 x 20 inches) Full margins showing the plate mark (slight browning to edge, watermark, light spots in centerfold). This stunning uncolored map of Stafford is a part of John Speed's Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine. The plate was engraved in Amsterdam by the great Dutch mapmaker Jodocus Hondius, exhibiting the highest level of craftsmanship and artistic embellishment. Hondius played with elements of symmetry in engraving this map; as seen by the aligning framed town insets, descriptions, and cartouches. This map boasts two town plans, Stafford and Lichfield. The latter was mapped out by John Speed himself, as indicated by the 'Pases' banner. Each town plan comes complete with their arms, a compass rose, and letter key to guide our understanding of the significant roads and buildings in each. A highly sought after detail of Speed's maps are his vignettes depicting great English battles. This map offers us the Battle of Blore Heath, one of the first major battles in the Wars of the Roses. It was fought on 23 September 1459 in Staffordshire. The story behind the Blore Heath is neatly framed. The final strapwork frame holds the first royal arms of Stafford. "This baronye of Staffor is very anciet and hath bene Earldom, the Nobles wherefod hath borne the title of Dukes of Buckingham". The county maps found in the Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine were the first consistent attempt to show territorial divisions, but it was mainly Speed's town plans that were the major innovation and probably his greatest contribution to Briti … [Click Below for Full Description]

SPEED, John (1552 - 1629)
London:Bassett & Chiswell, 1676. Single sheet (15 x 20 inches) Full margins showing the plate mark (slight browning to edge). An excellent map by John Speed of the English Islands of: Farne and Holy Island, off the Northumbrian coast; and the Channel Islands of Jersey and Guernsey. This map is a part of the highly regarded Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine. It was elaborated engraved by Jodocus Hondius in his workshop in Amsterdam in 1610. "Jodocus Hondius celavit_Anno 1610" The Islands is a prime example of the level of craft and detail found in Speed's Atlas. Each quartered map is decorated with small title cartouche, a compass rose, dividers and a mileage scale. The Islands themselves are detailed with significant buildings, fortresses, and windmills. The German Ocean and British Sea surround these islands. The coat of arms of Charles I as Duke of York are found at the bottom of the page, flanked by early revival putti and framed with light fretwork. The Holy Island was made by James Burnell; otherwise "Performed by Iohn Speede. […]" The 1676 edition of Speed's atlas never came with original color. The uncolored editions of Speed's maps are classic and highly sought after, as they reflect the true quality of Speed's work unhindered by colorists. The examples of this map of the Islands should always be uncolored and never colored. Born in Cheshire, John Speed developed his interest in maps in the 1580s, after moving to London to pursue his passions outside of tailoring. He there joined the Society of Antiquaries, where his enthusiasm for cartography won him … [Click Below for Full Description]

SPEED, John (1552 - 1629)
London: Bassett & Chiswell. Single sheet (15 x 20 inches) Full margins showing the plate mark (slight browning to edge). This superb county map of Westmorland delights the eyes with its elegance and detail. It is a stunning part of John Speed's famous Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine.

The accuracy and detail of Speed's county maps is what makes them so highly desirable. The title cartouche presents itself nobly with the coat of arms of King Charles II.

SPEED, John (1552 - 1629)
London: Bassett & Chiswell, 1676. Single sheet (15 x 20 inches) Full margins showing the plate mark (slight browning to edge, crease centerfold). A superb uncolored map of Flintshire, taken from John Speed's famous Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine. Engraved on copper plates in Amsterdam by renowned Jodocus Hondius, this is one of the most decorative maps of the county. Hondius makes excellent use of space in his engravings of the county; filling any blank spaces of the sea with sea monsters, full mast ships, and an elegant compass rose. The map is embellished with three insets; two of which are the town plans of Flint and of Saint Asaph. It is noteworthy to mention that these two plans were mapped by Speed himself, as indicated by the 'Scale of Pases'. The third inset is an enlarged illustration of St. Winefride's Well. The building gets its name from the healing waters have been said to cause miraculous cures. The legend of Saint Winifred tells how, in AD 660, Caradoc, the son of a local prince, severed the head of the young Winifred after she spurned his advances. A spring rose from the ground at the spot where her head fell and she was later restored to life by her uncle, Saint Beuno. It is claimes to be the oldest continually visited pilgrimage sites. A highly desirable element of Speed's maps is his depiction of important events of British history in vignettes. Here we can see a moment of action during the end of Richard II's reign as he is betrayed into the hands of Henry Bullingbrook. It is dated as '1400 Febr. 13', marking the king's death.

An extraordinary uncolored 1676 edition map of Caernarvonshire taken from the famous Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine by English cartographer John Speed. Engraved in 1610 on copper plates by renowned Dutch mapmaker Jodocus Hondius, this is one of the finest maps of this Welsh county. A striking title cartouche baring the royal arms of the King present Caernarvonshire to its viewer. The mapping indicates the hills of the county, highlighting Snowdown Hill in its center. The Irish Sea is heavily embellished with sea monsters, ships, the sea god Poseidon, and a set of battling firing ships. The towns of Caernarvon and Bangor are visually inset on opposing corners. The town plans are frequently a desirable aspect to Speed's Atlas, and it is noteworthy to mention the cartographer himself mapped these two plans. The indication of this is his 'Scale of Pases'. Each plan reveals the coat of arms of the town. Bangor, despite being one of Britain's smallest cities, it is the oldest in Wales and this is presumably why Speed chose to include it. The noble city of Caernarvon dominates with its striking details of its streets, houses, and Castle fortress. Speed labeled the most significant parts with letters, accompanied by a key.

The spine has been sympathetically replaced in a period style by Temple bookbinders of Oxford. Engraved frontispiece with quotation from Ovid - Resoluta catenis etc: "The Prize and cause of our labour" (in a smirk of history, this later became the motto of Burnley football club). Ownership signature of Baron Pretyman to the title page and rear inside board. Decorative headpiece and initial letter to the beginning of the preface and the introduction. This is Clarendon's attack on Hobbes's great work. It is ironic that probably the largest printing run of Leviathan would later be from the Clarendon Press. *4, A-Z4, Aa-Rr4, S1. (S2 is blank). 322pp. The spine is new and immaculate - the boards are firm and in good condition, with just a little rubbing to the edges. To the inside board, and early bookplate has been obliterated - presumably by a later owner. Signature of Baron Pretyman to the title page - further signature to the rear end paper. There are a number of notes to the inside board, which have been comprehensively eradicated to as to be impossible to read. Otherwise, the book is in very nice, clean condition, with just a touch of foxing to some pages.

The copper plates used for this Atlas were engraved in 1610 by talented Dutch mapmaker Jodocus Hondius. These uncolored county maps are highly sought after for their stunning level of accuracy, detail, and craftsmanship. They are considered the best maps available of its kind on the market.

Hondius took careful effort to fill all parts of the map, leaving no blank spaces and embellishing it with pure elegance. The map's right side presents a fretwork frame showcasing the coat of arms belonging to the ruling Dukes and Earls of Warwishshire over the centuries. Warwickshire first came into being as a part of the Kingdom of Merica, as early as the 11th century. The first reference was made in 1001. During the major part of the Middle Ages, Warwickshire was core dominated by Coventry (town plan inset), one of the most important cities in England thanks to its textile trade.

Olfert Dapper
1676. Original antique engraving view of al-Mahmal (Holy Carpet) and a caravan of the pilgrims from Cairo to al-Masjid al-Haram, Mecca, in the present Saudi Arabia. Etching and engraving by Olfert Dapper (1639-1689), Amsterdam 1668. One of the most interesting objects belonging to the history of the Hajj is the Mahmal. The Mahmal was the ceremonial palanquin carried on a camel which was the centre piece of the pilgrim caravan from Cairo to Mecca. It was made of embroidered fabrics and symbolized the authority of the sultan. The tradition of the Mahmal began in the reign of the Mamluk Sultan Baybars (ruled 1260-77). Before departing on Hajj, the Mahmal was paraded in the streets of Cairo with great pomp and ceremony and watched by thousands. It did not remain in Mecca but was brought back to Cairo by the returning caravan. After the collapse of the Mamluk Empire in 1517, the tradition of the Mahmal was continued by the Ottoman sultans. At different times Mahmals were also sent from Damascus and Yemen. The practice of sending the Mahmal from Egypt to Mecca continued until 1926 after which the practice was discontinued. It continued, however, to be paraded in Cairo until 1952. Dimension: 44 x 35 cm. Unmounted and unframed Condition: Excellent. SHIPPING: Worldwide by Registered Airmail with tracking number.

VALENCIA (Luis de) y COSTA (Carlos).
s.l., 1676. in-folio. (1f.blanc). 49ff. 1 grande gravure dépliante en taille-douce. Cartonnage moderne à la Bradel. Edition Originale. Rare mémoire publié en défense du gouverneur espagnol du fort de Bellegarde, critiqué pour avoir perdu la place assiégée par les Français en 1675. Ancienne tour de guet, le château de Bellegarde, situé au col du Perthus sur la frontière hispano-française du Roussillon, avait été l'objet de diverses altercations entre Espagnols et Français vers le milieu du 17e siècle. Pris en 1674 par le vice-roi de Catalogne Francisco de Tuttavila, duc de San German, c'est à partir de sa reconquête définitive par les Français en 1675 que Vauban put finir d'en faire une importante forteresse chargée de défendre le Roussillon des incursions espagnoles. Le présent ouvrage, qui est apparemment la première description de la forteresse, contient notamment d'intéressants détails sur le fonctionnement militaire aux mains des Espagnols, alors que les travaux de Vauban avaient déjà commencé. Il est illustré d'un très beau plan gravé en taille-douce accompagné sur la planche d'un texte explicatif. Ce plan dessiné et gravé par Francisco Via, figure également dans d'autres ouvrages, et pourrait aussi avoir été distribué séparément. Très bon exemplaire. Palau 73604.
