MAP OF CRETE"Insula Candia Ejusque Fortificatio. 'Copper engraving by Frederick de Wit, published in Amsterdam c. 1680, with original hand colouring. Size: 46 x 54,5 cm.One of the most decorative maps of Crete, based on the map by Sébastian de Pontault Beaulieu, a French military engineer who had mapped the fortifications of many Mediterranean islands. His map of Crete was published in 1674, only five years after Crete had fallen to the Ottomans after a 21-year siege (the longest siege in history).The Siege of Candia [modern Heraklion], the capital of Crete, was the central event of the sixth Turkish?Venetian War, better known as Cretan War, or War of Candia. It was a conflict between the Republic of Venice and her allies (the Knights of Malta, the Papal States, French volunteers, and pirates from Mani) against the Ottoman Empire and the Barbary States, fought over the Venetian possession of Crete. The war lasted from 1645 to 1669, and was fought in Dalmatia, Crete, and in numerous naval engagements in the Aegean Sea.On the map the seas around the island are filled with galleons and galleys representing this epic struggle. Above the map the title is on a banner held aloft by putti, and the corners have plans of the towns and fortifications of Chania and Heraklion. Under the map are plans of the fortifications of Spinalonga, Rethymno, Tylissos [Thine] and Suda.Price: € 1.450,-  .

Riofrío, Bernardo de.
Mexici: apud Viduam Bernardi Calderon Folio (28.5 cm; 11.25"). [11] ff., without the engraved plate.. 1680 Following a serious illness, Riofrio (also rendered Rio Frio), a canon of the cathedral in Michoacan, composed this "Virgilian Centonic Monument" as a thank you to the Virgin of Guadalupe for healing him; "cento" is Latin for "patchwork cloth" or a "cloak," and, of course, the image of the Virgin of Guadalupe is on a cloak. This epic poem of Her apparition is composed of 365 hexameters that are both copied from Virgil and original to Riofrio (yes, a patchwork), making for a rather odd mix of => Trojans, Tyrians, Olympic gods, Mexican Indians, Spanish bishops, and the Blessed Virgin Mary! Still, the result is regarded as an important example of Novohispanic baroque NeoLatin poetry. Heralding the Centonicum in the prefatory matter is Bartolome Rosales' "Aulica musarum synodus crisis apollinea in laudem authoris" ("The Courtly Synod of Muses, an Apolline Judgment of the author"), giving the reader another example of Novohispanic NeoLatin poetry. The work is from the press of one of Mexico's famous "women printers," Paula Benavides, the widow of Bernardo Calderon. It begins with a handsome title-page using roman and italic type in several point sizes, the largest being reserved for the first word of the title and the words "Mariae," "Guadalupe," and the last name of the work's dedicatee, "Payum," the archbishop of Mexico. The archbishop's coat of arms in a large woodcut rendition appears above the text of Riofrio's dedicatory introduction. The texts of the prefatory matter … [Click Below for Full Description]

Marino, Giambattista.
Amsterdam: No publisher/printer, 1680. 12mo (16.5 cm, 6.5"). 2 vols. I: [18] ff., 660 pp. (i.e., 662). II: 658; 34 pp. Giambattista Marino (Giovan Battista Marino, 1569–1625) was => Italy's greatest Baroque poet. His extravagant style became known as Marinism, or Seicentismo, inspiring a century of lyricists known as Marinisti. However the poet's reputation suffered in the 18th and 19th centuries when critics dismissed many fruits of the Baroque period as "all form no substance" (Guardiani, 74). It was not until the mid–20th century that Baroque literature was reevaluated and Marino's work was newly admired by scholars.    First published at Paris in 1623 and => placed on the Index in 1627, L'Adone is a complicated narrative based on the myth of Venus and Adonis from Ovid's Metamorphoses, combined with other myths and passages imitating Dante, Ariosto, Tasso, and French writers. These elements are intertwined with novelties, including a lyrical autobiography modeled on Ovid's (canto IX, 59–91), and a eulogy for Marino's contemporary => Galileo and his telescope (canto X, 42–47). Composed of over 5,000 octaves in 20 canti — almost 41,000 verses, Marino's complicated, ornate poem is => one of the longest epics ever written in Italian.    The edition in hand is printed in roman and italic, with factotum initials and a handful of woodcut tailpieces. The title-page in the first volume is printed in red and black, and black only in the second, with both volumes featuring the printer's device of an armillary sphere: mark of the Elzevirs, who printed the 1678 edition in Amsterdam? … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bible
Hardcover. Good. An uncommon type of book sophistication: Considerable trouble has been taken to make this 1680 Oxford octavo Bible (the first complete English octavo Bible printed in that city) look like an earlier 1637 London Bible. The title-leaf and subsequent leaf from that Bible have been bound in at the beginning (the latter replicating the content found on f. [1] of this Bible) and the date on the New Testament sectional title has been all but completely erased. The charming binding supports the hoax, bearing a gilt "1637" on its spine. This edition is printed in two unruled columns with shouldernotes, sidenotes (including dates), and italic headers. Acts 6:3 wrongly reads "ye may" for "we may." Tables of kindred and affinity, weights and measures, money, and time are found on the last two pages. The New Testament sectional title has a woodcut vignette showing the arms of the University.
