OVIDIUS NASO
1681. Engraved title and 150 numbered plates by Melchior Küsel (1626-84) after Johann Wilhelm Baur (1607-42). Oblong 4to (165 x 208mm). Contemporary mottled sheep, marbled endpapers, r.e. (spine expertly rebacked, corners restored). First edition of a fine series of plates illustrating Ovid's Metamorphoses adapted by the Augsburg engraver and publisher Melchior Küsel from the important barogue interpretations of Johann Wilhelm Baur, the Strasbourg miniature painter who had lived for many years in Rome and Italy. ?Baur's greatest work as an etcher was produced in Vienna in 1639?41: the 150 illustrations to Ovid?s Metamorphoses (preliminary drawings, Vaduz, Samml. Liechtenstein). Here he had finally found a subject that inspired him to original and individual creation. Even where he used other Ovid illustrations, such as those of Antonio Tempesta, he transformed them into something completely personal. His particular achievement lies in bringing the dramatic action to life ? As well as his own printed works, copies etched by Melchior Küsel of Augsburg, who must have owned many of the sketches left by Baur and published a collection of his designs entitled Iconographia (Augsburg, 1670), helped disseminate his works. Baur?s and Küsel?s etchings served as models for copies of all kinds: drawings, miniatures and ceiling paintings in Austrian palaces, as well as glass, enamel and porcelain painting.? J. E. von Borries, Grove Art Online (2003). There are two issues, at least, of Küsel's series, the majority of those listed on OCLC in Germany and elsewhere, and the version cited on … [Click Below for Full Description]

1681. Lisboa. A. Craesbeeck de Mello. Folio, (268 x 190 mm). 7 ff., 34 pp. Later full calf, raised bands to spine, lettered in gilt. Fine copy, with only minor toning and light trace of water staining.- First edition. Very rare work justifying Portugal´s right to Colonia del Sacramento (Uruguay), in the River Plate; “defends the rights of Portugal over the Colony ofSacramento, and reproduces the Tratado provisional of May 7, 1681” (Borba de Moraes). It ratifies the Portuguese claim to the territory on the left bank of the Rio de la Plata, an issue that remained cause of conflict until the first decades of Republican life in Argentina and Uruguay, and Empire in Brazil: “document d’une grande importance” (Leclerc). Contains the 17 articles of the peace treaty of Lisbon (1681), which orders the return to Governor Manuel Lobo the artillery taken at the fortress of Colonia, the restitution of people, the King of Portugal obliges himself to look into the behaviour of people from S. Paulo, and many other regulations as prohibition of trade either by land or sea between Buenos Aires and Brazil; at the end there is a recount of the history of explorations and shipwrecks in the River Plate region, Manuel Lobo, Governor of the Captaincy of Rio De Janeiro, officially founded the city in 1680, although previous Spanish settlements were located in the region. The city´s strategic location, in the opposite riverbank of Buenos Aires, gave military and commercial leverage to its occupier, thus extremely important geo-politically.

"Tavernier . will always continue among the most valuable Travellers in the East . modern scholars agree that in the main he was accurate in his statements of facts. His work is especially valuable at the time for its information on trade and trade routes, diamonds and mines" (Cox).

Er erlangte Berühmtheit durch seine Tagebücher, in denen er wie kein anderer Zeitgenosse die Reisen ausführlich dokumentierte. Von seinen Reisen brachte Tavernier eine große Menge an Diamanten mit nach Europa, darunter allein zwanzig Steine zwischen 30 und 50 Karat.

In fact, is one of the few books printed in Lima referring to the anthropology of Native Americans; this is exceptionally rare copy with the never-present appendix: “Adiciones a los capitulos del origen de los Indios”, which is not mentioned by either Medina or Palau, and which virtually no institutional copy preserves. The work is dedicated to the origin of American natives, and speculates on their Hebrew or Iberian ancestry, with differences between Mexican and Peruvian Indians. According to the evidence he gathered, Mexicans likely descended from Israelite lost Tribes and Peruvians from Iberians who crossed the Atlantic in the times of the grandson of Noah, Tubal. Furthermore, his work is relevant for providing an account of other theories regarding the origin of the Indians, such as Garcia’s. Their connection with the lost tribes of Israel is explored on leaves 67-69: “What proves that the Indians of America are the seed of the Sons of Israel . . . is that … [Click Below for Full Description]

London: Tho. Braddyll, for Robert Clavel, 1681. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. A rare first edition of Thomas Frankland's 'Annals of King James and King Charles'. According to Neufeld, this work is "a collection of previously printed documents, arranged by Frankland to prove that puritan-Presbyterians were inveterate enemies of the Elizabethan framework of the Church, the Restoration religious settlement, and the established constitution. 'Annals' reiterated Peter Heylyn's contention that the wars in Scotland and England could be traced to the adherents of Calvin's reformation." Frankland's 'Annals' was to blame for much of the animosity aimed at the English Parliament for the Civil Wars even though, it was "an exercise in preventative historical parallelism aimed at vindicating the Restoration settlement."

COWLEY, Abraham
London: J.M. for Henry Herringman, 1681. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. "What shall I do to be for ever known, And make the Age to come own?" I shall like beasts or common people die, Unless you write my elegy." - Abraham Cowley, The Motto Abraham Cowley was one of the leading English poets during the 17th-century. This charming, and rare, sixth edition was the last edition of the original one volume printing. Following this edition, the works were printed in multiple volumes. Famous poems, such as 'The Motto,' 'The Mistress,' 'Ode to Pindar,' and 'Davideis' are all included in this collection. The Pindaric Ode is especially interesting in that Cowley attempted to reproduce Pindar's works, but in doing so, he misinterpreted the metrical patterns, and, in doing so, did not accurately reflect Pindar's poetry. He did, however, create one of the most famous odes ever written, which would become the influence for William Wordsworth's famous ode "Intimations of Immortality.".

(MARITIME LAW).
Paris: Denys Thierry and Christophle Ballard, 1681. 4to (240 × 190 mm), pp. [viii], 273, [1] blank, [54] including privilege leaf at end. Woodcut royal device to title, numerous wooodcut and typographical ornaments to text. Old inkstain to lower edge towards the spine, running about 4 mm into lower margins of most leaves towards the gutter. Contemporary sprinkled calf, spine with five raised bands, gilt. Minor neat old repairs to corners and joints. A very good copy. FIRST EDITION of Colbert's famous codification for Louis XIV, the basis of modern maritime law in all parts of the world. The Ordonnance occupies an important place in the history of insurance, both in the field of marine insurance (which is fully described) and life insurance, since it allows (probably for the first time in print) that in limited circumstances lives may be insured as opposed to just goods. This arose from the need for ship owners to insure cargos of slaves or against the possibility of the capture and ransome of passengers and crew. While the Ordonnance expressly excludes the possibility of insuring lives in general, an exception is made in the case of slaves (since they were legally 'goods' rather than lives) whose value could be insured. Since ransomed individuals could acquire a monetary 'price', French slavers were thus able to create a legal fiction where the price originally paid for a slave could be expressed as a ransom and thus become an insurable figure (provided the slave die in other than 'natural' circumstances). The codification of procedure in these cases thus began a culture i … [Click Below for Full Description]
