        Pascaert van de Zuyd Zee en een gedeelte van Brasil

      Amsterdam: [1680]. Copper-engraved map, period hand-colouring in outline and with the cartouche fully coloured (expert restoration at sheet edges). 21 x 24 1/4 inches. First state of Van Keulen's dramatic chart of the Pacific, here with beautiful period hand-colouring. "This sea chart typifies the Dutch published image of the Pacific during this era. The southern Pacific contains the usual two islands of Magellan, along with the various landfalls of Le Maire and Tasman" (Suarez). Although centered on the Pacific, the map also encompasses all of North America, including a large depiction of California as an island, and most of South America. The present example is Burden's first state, issued in Van Keulen's 1680 Zee-Atlas and 1683 Zee-Fakkel. The Van Keulen family were chart and instrument makers, and publishers of nautical textbooks, books on sea law, shipbuilding, almanacs and more. Founded by Joannes van Keulen (c.1654- 1715), the firm remained in business for over 200 years.

        Hellas (in Greek) seu Graecia Universa. Auctore J. Laurenbergio

      [Amsterdam: n.d. but c. 1680]. Hand-coloured copper engraved map. 19 3/4 x 23 3/4 inches. An attractive map of the whole of Greece, by one of the great names in Dutch cartography. For nearly a century the Visscher family dominated Amsterdam's map trade. Claez Jansz Visscher (1587-1652) founded the business at the beginning of the seventeenth century, establishing the firm near the workshop of the great Dutch publisher Pieter van der Keere. At this time he produced a few separately published maps but his first major atlas was completely comprised of maps printed from van der Keere's old plates. The business was continued by Visscher's son and grandson who went by the names Nicholaes Visscher I (1618-1679) and Nicholaes Visscher II (1649-1702). During their lifetimes they issued many fine atlases, which they consistently updated and revised with the latest cartographic discoveries. Elizabeth Visscher, the widow of Nicholaes II, continued the business after her husband's death and published both an Atlas Minor and an Atlas Major. The business eventually was acquired by Peter Schenk (1660- 1718), who continued to republish the Visscher plates until his death in 1718.

        Novissima et Accuratissima Totius Americae Descriptio

      Amsterdam: [circa 1680]. Copper-engraved map. 21 1/2 x 24 1/2 inches. The first state of Danckert's first map of North and South America. Danckerts here issues a version of De Witt's circa 1675 map of the same title (i.e., Burden 465, between state 3 and state 4 of that issue). Cartographically, the two are very similiar, and thus Burden's notes on the earlier apply. Of that map, Burden writes: "The map is cartographically drawn directly from De Wit's own wall map version published in 1672. The most notable improvement is the depiction of the five Great Lakes, this for the first time on a Dutch map. There is also an altered west coast depiction of the Hudson Bay region. Both features appear to have been taken from Guillaume Sanson's Amerique Septentrionale, published in 1669" (Burden 465). As in the De Wit map, the decorative cartouche on the present map by Danckerts draws from an earlier Visscher map of the western hemisphere. The present map is Burden's first state, with the additional cartouche at the top left, without the mapping of New Guinea and neighboring islands in the South Pacific, and without Terra Esonis in the north. In circa 1696, Danckerts would re-issue this map from a new plate, the present plate apparently having worn out or been damaged (see Burden 725). This earlier version, however, is considerably more scarce, particularly in its first state, with Burden noting that only "a handful of examples" of Danckert's atlas from this early period are extant.

        DELLA HISTORIA D'ITALIA Libri XLVI. Settima impressione riveduta dal medesimo Autore, accresciuta, e continuata dall'anno 1625, fino al 1679.

      Bartolomeo Zappata,, Torino, 1680 - Volume in folio antico (30x21 cm), legatura coeva in piena pergamena (minime mancanze agli angoli esterni), titolo manoscritto ab antiquo al dorso, bianca, frontespizio con impresa tipografica in silografia, prefazione, sommario degli argomenti di ciascun libro, 8 cc., 1082 pp. Testatine, iniziali e cul-de-lampe ornati. Settima edizione (la prima è del 1656 di Venezia, col titolo "Storia delle guerre d'Italia dal 1635 al 1655"), notevolmente ampliata, di questa pregiata opera storiografica, strutturata annalisticamente ed in parte fondata sull'esperienza diretta, che procurò all'autore l'invito a recarsi a Torino come storiografo e consigliere di corte nel 1676. I libri VII-XIII trattano delle guerre civili in Piemonte e contengono animate descrizioni degli assedi di Ivrea e Torino. Lo scrupoloso lavoro di ricerca e rigoroso vaglio delle fonti, rende quest'opera una fra le più apprezzate ed accurate descrizioni della storia d'Italia, a cui attingerà ancora, nel secolo XIX, Carlo Botta. Sostanzioso trattato, esteso e prezioso di notizie e conoscenze, assolutamente degno d'attenzione. Il volume presentato è in più che buono stato, malgrado la carta "povera" secentesca, è del tutto esente da bruniture, rarissime le mende, solo una lieve gora al margine bianco, esterno, inferiore, alle prime carte. D'altissimo valore e di buona rarità.

        De bibliothecis liber singularis. Editio secunda, priori multo auctior, & addito rerum indice locupletior.

      Utrecht, Johannes Ribb, 1680.. 8vo, pp. [xvi] including engraved title (specially engraved for this edition), printed title with printer's mark, 414; [20] index, [1] errata, [1] blank; contemporary full calf, spine in compartments, gilt lettered spine label; from the Macclesfield library with North Library book plate to front pastedown and blindstamp to title; a fine copy. Second much enlarged edition of this comprehensive survey and history of libraries (first edition 1669). Lomeier (1636-1699), professor of belles-lettres at the academy at Zutphen, studies the origin of libraries, conservation of records in Biblical times, the most celebrated collections of Europe, with especially detailed information on the great libraries of the seventeenth century. Lomeier is also of great interest for information on the responsibilities of librarians, library locations and buildings, and library fittings. His work proved a great sourcebook for Le Gallois Traité des plus belles bibliothèques de l'Europe. The fine engraved title was specially engraved for this second edition. Petzholdt p. 26 (with a discussion on the order of books in libraries).

        Insularum Sardiniae et Corsicae descriptio

      Carta geografica dell'isola tratta dall'atlante del De Wit. Su un cartiglio in basso a destra è inserito il titolo. Ai due lati della struttura sono poggiate due sirene e altre creature marine immerse in acqua. Sulla parte superiore sono invece poggiati lo stemma della Sardegna con i quattro mori bendati e quello della Corsica, con un solo moro più grande. La carta presenta un'orografia del tutto arbitraria, infatti l'isola risulta affollata di mucchi di talpa colorati in marron disposti senza un ordine preciso. Anche le posizioni dei fiumi, disegnati con un tratto forte, non sempre corrispondono alla realtà. Viene inoltre segnalata una ricca vegetazione per mezzo di alberelli e ciuffi d'erba, talvolta anche colorati in verde. Le città si individuano per mezzo di diversi simboli, a seconda della loro importanza, case e torri o piante murate colorate in rosso. Il simbolo della città è accompagnato da una croce se essa è sede di diocesi o di archidiocesi. E ricordata anche l'esistenza dei due capi di Cagliari e Lugodori, ma non è segnata alcuna linea di confine tra i due. Bellissimo esemplare in coloritura coeva. A nice map of the islands of Sardinia and Corsica. The coastal information is fairly accurate but much of the interior topography is less precise. The title cartouche features the arms of the Kingdoms of Sardinia and Corsica with their characteristic symbols for the defeated Moors who had once ruled the islands. Original color, good conditions.

        Livres de Fleurs.

      Amsterdam, c. 1680. Oblong small folio (350 x 190mm). Engraved title within a garland of flowers arranged on a pillar, and 9 engraved plates of bouquets of flowers, each bouquet displayed in an ornamental glass vase, very fine engravings. Contemporary mottled calf, gilt borders, rebacked to style. Not in Nissen or any of the obvious bibliographies. Dunthorne 317 cites this work under the author Vauquer. Dr. Sam Segal believes this work by Justus Danckerts is the first edition and predates the edition by Vauquer. However both are rare and no copy has appeared at auction. J. Danckerts was a member of the famous Danckerts family of Amsterdam, one of the best known print and map sellers in 17th century Amsterdam. 'The grandfather, father, and sons were all highly skilled and excellent artistic draftsman and engravers' (Koeman II, p. 88).

VD-17 12:111196B (nur 1 Exemplar in der Bayerischen Staatsbibliothek); Hohenemser 565. - Einer von 3 Drucken gleichzeitig erschienenen Drucken, der einzige mit dem Portrait. - Francois Henri de Montmorency-Bouteville, Herzog von Luxemburg-Piney, französischer Heerführer, Pair und Marschall von Frankreich (1628-1695, genannt "Marschall von Luxemburg"), war einer der wichtigsten Generale Ludwigs XIV. Seine kriegerischen Erfolge, seine Grausamkeit und auch sein Wiederaufstieg, nachdem er in der Bastille wegen seiner Verstrickung in der "affaire des poisons" (Giftmischerinnenaffäre um La Voisin)eingekerkert war, brachten ihn in den Ruf, mit dem Teufel im Bunde zu stehen. Dieses Gerücht war die Grundlage für die seit ca. 1680 bekannte Sage vom Herzog von Luxemburg, die in Form von Pamphleten, Volksbüchern und Flugschriften in Holland und Frankreich, aber auch in Deutschland weit verbreitet war. - Etwas berieben, gutes Exemplar der sehr seltenen Flugschrift!

Upon the question, of the crown of Sweden's entring into a league with France and England against Holland. Translated into English by J. Ozell. London, Sam Buckley, 1709. 8:o.

Carlander III s. 568. Första engelska översättningen av Pufendorfs mot Frankrike riktade pamflett (utgiven samma år som den första franska), vilken följdes av en ny med titeln "Remarks on the proceedings of the French courts ..." 1730 och ytterligare en 1744, nu med titeln "French faith threatening and pernicious to all Europa, more especially to their own allies". Den första pagineringsföljden innehåller den latinska originaltexten, "De foederibus inter Sueciam et Galliam", och den andra den engelska översättningen. Originalet utgavs postumt i Haag 1708. Texten är en utredning av Pufendorf om resultaten av Sveriges tidigare allianser med Frankrike, skriven på begäran av Karl XI 1680, då denne ånyo funderade på att ingå en allians för att förstärka finanserna. Pufendorfs slutsats var att Frankrike alltid svikit givna löften

Incisione in rame, b/n, cm 28,5 x 36,5 (alla lastra).

With the armor-ial bookplate of the Earl of Macclesfield, with his embossed stamp on the title-page and first page of preliminaries. Martin Clifford (1624-1677) was Master of the Charterhouse, who in 1674 had published A Treatise on Humane Reason, a work which caused a considerable controversy. One of those who attacked it was Andrew Marvell in Plain Dealing (1675). The present work by Warren is a reply to Marvell. It is dedicated to the Earl of Shaftesbury, who had been instrumental in getting Clifford's salary at the Charterhouse increased While Clifford himself occupies only a small place in the history of philosophy, the issue he was addressing is a truly fundamental one. His works, and those of his clerical opponents, helped to stimulate the work of two much more profound thinkers. Robert Boyle's A Discourse of Things above Reason (1681) provides a measured defence of the Christian mysteries (as 'above' reason but not contrary to it), while Locke's arguments in Book 4 of the Essay and in the Reasonableness of Christianity (1695) are closer to Clifford in their spirit" (Dictionary of Seventeenth-Century British Philosophers).

        The English Atlas

      Oxford: Printed at the Theater, for Moses Pitt at the Angel in St.. Pauls Church-Yard, London, 1680-1681-1683-1682, 1680. THE FIRST ATTEMPT TO PUBLISH A GRAND ATLAS IN ENGLISH 4 volumes, folio, printed titles, 2 with small engraved vignettes, engraved portrait of Charles II (mounted), double-engraved plate of Laplanders and 169 double-page and folding maps of Northern Europe. Contemporary paneled calf Provenance: Bookplate of George Tollet Esq.; Library of the Earl of Bradford References: E. G. R. Taylor, "The English Atlas of Moses Pitt, 1680-83," Geographical Journal 95, 4 (April 1940), 292-299; Lloyd Arnold Brown, The World Encompassed, exh. cat. (Baltimore, 1952), n. 172; Rodney W. Shirley, The Mapping of the World (London, 1983), n. 504. Moses Pitt was neither a cartographer nor a scholar, yet in 1670 he undertook a project that came to be called The English Atlas. Despite the seemingly difficult, if not unrealistic, task at hand--hardly mitigated by the paucity of skilled commercial cartographers in England--Pitt's endeavor was backed by Sir Christopher Wren and Robert Hooke, and his partners included the Dutch map publisher Jan Jansson and the Englishman Steven Stewart. Based on the concept of the Atlas Maior by Joan Blaeu ,Pitt's atlas was to consist of twelve volumes, but only four were completed (covering places "next to the North-pole," Muscovy, Poland, Sweden, Denmark, Germany and the seventeen provinces of the Low Countries). Pitt had envisioned the project as a reissue of a Dutch atlas in "English guise"--in which existing Dutch maps would be repackaged with accompanying text in English--whereas his partners envisioned the printing of an atlas with entirely new maps. Such conflicts, along with economic factors and the overly ambitious nature of the project envisioned, eventually led to its demise. After only four parts of the atlas were completed, Pitt was in financial ruin and was imprisoned for debt from 1689 to 1691. Nonetheless, the four volumes that were produced signal the sumptuous nature of the project, as the highest production values were lavished upon it in terms of engraving, paper and coloring. Indeed, this particular example of The English Atlas has superb color, of a quality that is exceptional even among the scarce surviving examples of Pitt's work.. Book.

        Ambassades mémorables de la Compagnie des Indes Orientales des Provinces Unies vers les Empereurs du Japon

      Amsterdam: Jan Van Meurs, 1680. 2 parts in one volume (as issued), folio. (13 7/8 x 9 inches). Title in red and black with integral engraved vignette. Engraved additional title, 26 engraved maps and plates (1 folding map, 4 folding plates, 21 double-page plates), 70 engraved illustrations, occasional engraved initials and head-pieces. Contemporary speckled calf, neatly rebacked and cornered, spine in seven compartments with raised bands, red morocco lettering-piece in the second compartment, dated at the foot of the spine. First edition in French of this important work on Japan, a work whose illustrations 'represent a high-water mark in book illustrations of the 17th century' (Lach) Designed to complement his similar work on China, this work was compiled by Montanus from records of Jesuit missions to Japan in 1649 and 1661, and published by Jan Van Meurs for the Dutch East India Company. Van Meurs had received the necessary permission to publish both a Dutch and a French edition in 1664, but it was not until 1669 that the Dutch edition appeared, to be followed shortly after by translations in German and in English using Van Meurs plates. In the present edition, the frontispiece and four of the original large plates were recut, and many of the text illustrations are reversed or mirrored. This edition is the first to include the plate of Fort Zeelandia in Taiwan. Montanus' work amounts to a massive history of all aspects of Japan as it was then understood by the West and contains 'more firsthand information about Japan than any other post-1650 publication (Lach). The work primarily concentrates on providing accounts of Japanese politics, culture, religion, and military affairs. In addition, Montanus gives descriptions of the various western attempts to make contact with Japan: these naturally concentrate on the VOC (or Dutch East-India Company) embassies. The account of the Dutch 'Blokovius-Frisium embassy' comes from previously unpublished material, and other VOC embassies described include those of Zacharias Wagenaer in 1657 and Henry Indyk in 1661. Topographical information is wide ranging (for the time) and includes Montanus' descriptions of the towns of Nagasaki, Hirado, Osaka, Sakai, Kyoto, Shizuoka, and Edo, as well as the mysterious 'boiling waters of Singok'. The sociology of Japan is also described in some detail, with accounts of Japanese customs (bath-houses, wrestling, gardens) endeavors (whaling, wine-making), and mores (including crime and punishment with accounts of murder, the burning of widows, blood-baths, and various tortures). The magnificent maps, plans, and illustrations cover Japanese costume, cities, flora and fauna, religious ceremonies, military techniques and include a plan of Nagasaki, large folding views of Miako and Edo, a scene of the destruction wrought by an earthquake at Edo, action portraits of samurai, an illustration of a religious ceremony at the temple at Beelden, formal meetings between western ambassadors and the Japanese Imperial Court, and a plate showing the Emperor's throne. Cordier Japonica 385;Cox I:325; Lach Asia in the Making of Europe III, pp.1873-79; Landwehr VOC 525.
