        Pas Kaart van de Just van Carolina

      Amsterdam, 1682. No Binding. Near Fine. 20 ¼ x 23 inches. Superb hand color; lower margin extended with slight loss, else fine with strong impression on heavy paper. One of the earliest printed charts to specifically focus on the Carolina coast and one of the most attractive maps of the area overall. The chart extends from the Chesapeake Bay to northern Florida. While van Keulen used a variety of sources, not all of the identifiable, generally speaking, Spanish sources inform the more southerly areas, while in the northern part of the map, more accurate English sources predominate. There is an inset of Charlestown Harbor above the cartouche. The Van Keulen firm was a leading supplier of charts, instruments, and maritime related books of uncommon longevity. It remained a family controlled business until 1823 and then continued to operate under another owner until 1885.

A good copy of the rare expanded edition, complete with all plates. William Leybourn (1626-1719) mathematician, was in his time a distinguished land and quantity surveyor (although he began his working life as a printer). Such was his prestige, he was frequently employed to survey the estates of gentlemen, and he also helped to survey the remnants of London after the great fire of 1666. A prolific and eclectic author, his work The Compleat Surveyor, which was first published under that title in 1653 is regarded as a classic of its kind and (in collaboration with one Vincent Wing) the 1649 volume Urania Practica, was the first book in English devoted to astronomy. In our book in the address To The Reader (August 1681) Leybourn explains the sources for some of the text: 'Of the first tractate, the examples are all (or most of them) the same as are Mr. Wells in his Sciographia ... The second tractate was, partly a translation out of Magnon, by Mr. Thomas Gibson: and the third is partly Mr. Samuel Foster's ... The seventh tractate came to my hands in a Latine manuscript of Mr. Samuel Fosters, written with his own hand in anno 1640 ... The ninth tractate is wholly Mr. Samuel Fosters ... The tenth tractate also, is wholly his, and was ... transcribed from a manuscript of his, which he ... entituled Gold ... The eleventh tractate ... is Mr. Fosters also'.

Översättaren Johan Silvius har använt sig av en tysk förlaga, översatt från det engelska originalet av den italienska predikanten Johannes Tonjola. Baxters originalskrift, "A call to the unconverted to turn and live" utkom 1657 och hade redan 1660 tryckts nio upplagor och översattes efter hand till de flesta europeiska språk. Översättaren skriver i sitt förord att boken är riktad "emot ahteister, werldennes hansar, leckermunnar, uthi sitt kötzlige lefwerne swijnachtige och fääwulne, uthaff syndestancken illaluchtande och uthaff högmod, ståltheet och argheet flåsande och upbläste menniskior, hwilke bekläda en medelmåttig character men werdera sig sielfwa alt för högdt". Silvius har tillägnat sin översättning riksskattmästaren Sten Bielke, kammarpresidenten Claes Fleming och ytterligare elva olika kungliga tjänste- och förtroendemän. Hellekant skriver att arbetet endast utkom en gång i Silvius översättning och inte fick någon spridning i Sverige under 1700-talet då, märkligt nog, inte en enda ny upplaga trycktes. Under 1800-talet utkom arbetet i flera editioner och olika översättningar, utan att översättare och utgivare kände till den tidigare upplagan från 1683

Among the many songs here is the old Scots carol, "Remember, O thou man", which is frequently cited as the source of the tune used for the British national anthem, "God Save the Queen". Wing attributes the work to Thomas Davidson, as the first edition title has "T.D." [i.e. Thomas Davidson] as the instructor of the "musick-schole", but Forbes signs the introduction here twice, and claims to have compiled the whole work himself. (Ironically, his introduction is actually plagiarized from Thomas Morley, A plaine and easie introduction to practicall musicke, 1597.) There are two so-called third editions, both dated 1682, one with engraved title, the other with variant letterpress title. Wing puts this issue second of the two, following Aldis, but ESTC more recently reverses the order. Forbes added a second part to this third edition, with divisional title: "Severall of the Choisest Italian Songs composed by Giovanni Giacomo Castoldi da Carravaggio. Together also, with some of the Best new English-Ayres. Collected from their chiefest Authors, All in Three Parts, Viz. Two Trebles and a Bass." All early editions are rare, and are usually found defective.

        Plate 92 - Red Frangipani

      Mark Catesby (1682-1749)Plate from The Natural History of Carolina, Florida and the Bahama IslandsLondon: 1731 - 1743; [1731-1771, 3rd edition]Hand-colored copper-plate engraving20" x 14"; 24" x 20 1/2" framedIn 1712, the English-born artist and naturalist Mark Catesby embarked on a series of expeditions to the southern colonies of British North America. Enthralled by the wildlife of the New World, he spent years traveling by foot through parts of present-day Virginia, Georgia, the Carolinas and the Bahamas. Over the course of his journeys, he encountered and documented uncountable varieties of animal and plant life that were entirely unknown to Europeans. His drawings and written observations were the raw material for an unprecedented project: a scientific account of previously uninvestigated wildlife, with illustrations taken from life. When Catesby returned to England from his final voyage to America in 1726, he was unable to afford the expense of having his drawings engraved professionally. Undeterred, he taught himself to etch with the assistance of Joseph Goupy, a French artist living in London, and went on to produce all but a few of the plates for his publication. He scrupulously monitored the coloring of the engravings, either painting the impressions himself or closely supervising the work to insure its fidelity to his preparatory studies. The result of Catesby’s tenacious effort was the most sweeping, complete and unique natural history study ever done. Widely considered a crowning achievement of 18th-century art and science, Catesby’s Natural History of Carolina, Florida and the Bahama Islands has lost none of its power to delight in the 250 years since its publication. This remarkable study of American plants, animals, and marine life provided an important model for later artists, including John James Audubon, who followed in Catesby’s footsteps a century later. The works illustrated here are among the masterpieces of Catesby’s Natural History. The artist’s charming, distinctive style is immediately apparent in these engravings, and Catesby’s enthusiasm for his subjects is palpable. Aside from their esthetic charm, however, Catesby’s illustrations were significant for other reasons. His pioneering attempts to describe and portray birds accurately, life-sized, and in botanical settings set him apart from his contemporaries and foreshadowed the work of Audubon and Alexander Wilson. He was the first to abandon the Indian names for his subjects, trying to establish scientific names based on generic relationships. Indeed, the great Linnaeus, working on his Systema Naturae at this time, used Catesby’s work as the basis of his system of binomial nomenclature for American species. For all these and many other reasons, these are magnificent prints both for their beauty and importance. The quality of the work was so far superior to foregoing accounts that many scholars rank Catesby as the first real naturalist in America.

        Historie der Sevarambes

      Amsterdam,: T. van Hoorn, 1682.. Small quarto, four parts in one volume (part 4 with separate pagination), engraved frontispiece by J. Luiken (dated 1683) and 16 plates (repairs to tears in two plates, one with insubstantial loss at bottom corner); a few upper margins a little short but a very good copy in full vellum antique. Very rare, the first fully illustrated edition of this seventeenth-century imaginary voyage to western Australia, based on the story of the wreck of the VOC ship Vergulde Draeck in 1656. The plates are thus early - if imaginary - depictions of the Australian coast, and include two coastal scenes depicting the first meeting with the local population, the Australian court, and the fabulous fauna.The importance of the detailed and inventive illustrations has been overlooked: after the various editions of Pelsaert, this is the second major work to depict life and conditions on the Australian mainland, however fancifully. This work also has an important connection with Vlamingh's exceedingly rare Journaal wegens de Voyagie of 1701, as Vlamingh's very real voyage to Australia in 1696-7 only made it separately into print as a companion volume to the second Dutch edition of this imaginary work (see catalogue no. XXXX).The story is based on the 1656 wreck of the Vergulde Draeck, which ran aground on the coast north of modern-day Perth. Seventy-five of the crew and passengers made it ashore. The captain Pieter Albertsz despatched a crew of seven in a small boat to Batavia and a rescue expedition was mounted, but found no trace of the survivors; the possibility that parts of the crew survived on mainland Australia was an enticing fiction. Vairasse openly used this real-life voyage as the model for his own, having the Goude Draak wreck in western Australia the same year as its namesake. After the ship founders, some seventy-four women and three hundred and seven men survive on the barren shore, from whence they journey to the land of the Sevarambes, an Australian utopia.The work, which also borrows features from the wreck of the Batavia, is one of the most important imaginary voyages to Terra Australis, and is cited as a direct influence on Swift. The book thus forms an important link in the long history of seventeenth-century Dutch exploration of the west Australian coast, not least because it dates from a time when the lines between imaginary and real voyages were blurred.Its publishing history is complex, but suffice to say that the first part was published in London in 1675, and the first collected edition was published in Paris in 1682. This Dutch edition was translated by Gerard van Broekhuizen the same year as the French collected edition, and seemingly based on the French text. The frontispiece is by Jan Luyken, and the plates (four signed) by Johannes van den Aveele (or Avelen).Davidson, 'A Book Collector's Notes', p. 43; not in Landwehr, 'VOC', but see 373 (note on 1701 edition and Vlamingh); Tiele, 'Nederlandsche Bibliographie', p. 111 (1701 edition).

First French edition; the original Dutch edition was published in 1669, entitled 'Historia Insectorum generalis'. "Swammerdam's thesis about insects was fundamentally new and significant. For his contemporaries, as for Aristotle, there existed three good arguments, that not only placed the insects far from the higher animals, but even tended to remove them from the realm of subjects open to scientific study. These arguments were: insects lack internal anatomy; they originate by spontaneous generation; and they develop by metamorphosis. Swammerdam believed that all three arguments were false and devoted a wide variety of investigations to refute these ideas" (D.S.B. XIII, pp. 168-175). One leaf with 2 small tears.

Woodcut headpieces and initials. 3 ff. (the engraved frontispiece, title-page, and Epistle to the reader), XXI (Preface), (5, - contents), 572, (2), 30 pp. (Index).. Fist edition- RICHARD CROMWELL'S COPY - of the first complete translation into English of Grotius' groundbreaking magnum opus, "De Jure Belli ac Pacis", the founding work of international law. The profoundly influential masterpiece - written during the Thirty Years' War, in the hope that rational human beings might be able to agree to legal limits on war's destruction - "made him famous throughout Europe... [t]he questions which he put forward have come to be the basis of the ultimate view of land and society. This was the first attempt to lay down a principle of right, and a basis for society and government, outside Church or Scripture... Grotius's principle of an immutable law, which God can no more alter than a mathematical axiom, was the first expression of the "droit naturel", the natural law which exercised the great political theorists of the eighteenth century, and is the foundation of modern international law." (PMM 125). Grotius's "The Rights of War and Peace" played a tremendous role in English law and politics and in the entire development of international law in general. Richard Cromwell too played a key rôle in English politics and law in the 17th century.When Oliver Cromwell died in 1658, his son Richard Cromwell became the second ruling Lord Protector of England, Scotland and Ireland. Though Richard Cromwell was in many ways a gifted politician, less brutal than his father and considered a decent and modest young man, the death of Oliver Cromwell caused the English Republic to collapse into feuding military and political factions.Richard Cromwell was thrown into a political situation he could not handle and ended up merely serving as Lord Protector for 9 months. His downfall came about through trying to support the civilian Parliament in a confrontation with the Army.The fact that Richard Cromwell is unable to contain the power struggle between the army and the Parliament leads directly to the collapse of the Protectorate and the reestablishment of the Commonwealth in 1659.It is no wonder that Grotius' great work should be of special interest to Richard Cromwell later on in life! "it is on the DIB (De Iure Bellis) that the bulk of Grotius' reputation rests. It consists of an introduction and three books, totalling more than 900 pages in translation. As with DIP, the introduction or "Prolegomena" holds the greatest interest for philosophers, for it is here that Grotius articulates and defends the philosophical foundations of the DIB. While philosophers are naturally attracted to the "Prolegomena," the body of the DIB is also redolent with themes of philosophical interest. Book One defines the concept of war, argues for the legitimacy of war, and identifies who may legitimately wage war. Book Two deals with the causes of war, the origins of property, the transfer of rights and more, while Book Three is dedicated primarily to the rightful conduct of belligerents in war. After the initial publication in 1625, Grotius ushered several more editions to press during his life, each time adding more references without substantially changing the arguments." (SEP)Living in the times of the Eighty Years' War between Spain and the Netherlands and the Thirty Years' War between Catholic and Protestant European nations (Catholic France being in the otherwise Protestant camp), Grotius was deeply concerned with matters of conflicts between nations and religions. His magnum opus was a monumental effort to restrain such conflicts on the basis of a broad moral consensus. It was begun in prison and published during his exile in Paris. Grotius's influence on international law is paramount, and is widely acknowledged all over the world. For instance, since 1999 the American Society of International Law holds an annual series of Grotius Lectures. Because of his theological underpinning of free trade, he is also considered an "economic theologist"."In the dedication of his great work, "De Jure Belli ac Pacis", to Louis XIII of France, Grotius addresses the king as "everywhere known by the name Just no less than that of Louis ... Just, when you call back to life laws that are on the verge of burial, and with all your strength set yourself against the trend of an age which is rushing headlong to destruction; ... when you offer no violence to souls that hold views different from your own in matter of religion; ... when by the exercise of your authority you lighten the burden of oppresses peoples."Grotius when writing this dedication and the Prolegomena to "De Jure Belli ac Pacis", published in 1625, was living in exile; Europe was war-torn; depression and suffering from hunger and cold prevailed in many regions; and of international law he could then say "in our day, as in former times, there is no lack of men who view this brance of law with contempt as having no reality outside of an empty name." The treaty of peace, embodying many of the universal and permanent principles which Grotius abstracted "from every particular fact" in those dark days of the early part of the Thirty Years' War, was not concluded till 23 years later. The year 1624 was, in the negotiation of the treaty, assumed to be the norm year for restoration of the "Status quo".History in the more than three centuries since Grotius wrote seems to have demonstrated the correctness of his view in spite of the fact that many a state has not yet realized that the state is "Truly fortunate which has justice for its own boundary line." In 1625 Grotius significantly said "there is no state so powerful that it may not sometime need the help of others outside itself, either for the purposes of trade, or even ward off the forces of many foreign nations united against it.To those desirous of understanding the fundamental principles which have motivated some of the greatest statesmen of modern time and the bases upon which a state which is to remain essentially sound must rest, a reading of Grotius' Prolegomena to the "Law of War and Peace" is commended."

The earlier published English edition ("Of the Law of Warre and Peace". 8vo. London, 1654), was merely a translation of a small extract of the work._______The present copy has belonged to RICHARD CROMWELL and carries his signature to the first fly-leaf. Richard Cromwell (1626 - 1712), son of Oliver Cromwell, was the second ruling Lord Protector of England, Scotland and Ireland. He was surrounded by political chaos and served as Lord Protector for just under nine months, from 3 September 1658 until 25 May 1659. His régime was brought down by financial chaos and confrontation between Parliament and the Army. After his fall from power, a great joy to the Royalists, he was ridiculed and given the nicknames "Tumble Down Dick" and "Queen's Dick"."Born at Huntingdon on 4 October 1626, Richard was the third son of Oliver and Elizabeth Cromwell. Like his brothers Oliver and Henry, he served in the parliamentary army during the First Civil War but Richard's military career was brief and undistinguished. With the death of his elder brother Oliver in 1644, Richard became the eldest surviving son and heir to Oliver Cromwell. In May 1647, Richard was admitted a member of Lincoln's Inn. He was betrothed to Dorothy, the daughter of Richard Mayor (or Major) of Hursley in Hampshire in February 1648, but owing to disputes over the settlement, the marriage did not take place until May 1649. Richard and Dorothy lived on Mayor's estate at Hursley. During the 1650s, they had nine children, only four of whom survived into adulthood. Richard served as a Justice of the Peace in Hampshire, but despite his father's attempts to advise him, he fell into debt after exceeding his allowance. To Oliver's dismay, Richard neglected religion and devoted himself to hunting and field sports. Unlike his younger brother Henry, Richard was not appointed to the Nominated Assembly in July 1653 nor to public office when his father was named Lord Protector the following December. With the establishment of the Protectorate, Richard's status inevitably changed. As the Protector's eldest son, he was addressed as "Lord Richard", or even "Prince Richard", though sometimes derisively. He gradually began to take on a more prominent role in public affairs. In September 1654, he was elected MP for Hampshire in the First Protectorate Parliament and in November 1655 he was appointed to the Committee for Trade and Navigation and a number of other committees. He sat as MP for Cambridge University in the Second Protectorate Parliament (1656-8). In July 1657, Richard succeeded his father as Chancellor of the University of Oxford. Under the terms of the Humble Petition and Advice, the written constitution adopted in May 1657, Oliver Cromwell was empowered to name his successor as Lord Protector. There was no requirement to name his eldest son, but Oliver began to promote Richard's interests to a far greater extent than previously. In contrast to Oliver's first installation as Lord Protector, in which Richard had played no part, he was prominent in the second installation in June 1657, accompanying Oliver in the state coach and standing near him during the ceremony itself. Richard was made a member of the newly-established Upper House of Parliament during the autumn of 1657 and appointed to the Council of State in December. In January 1658, he was appointed honorary colonel of a cavalry regiment and in May a new warship was named the "Richard" in his honour. Immediately after Oliver Cromwell's death on 3 September 1658, Richard Cromwell was proclaimed Lord Protector in his place. The succession passed smoothly and was generally well-received around the country and in Europe, but a group of army officers petitioned for the appointment of a soldier as commander-in-chief rather than the new Protector, who unlike Oliver had not won their trust and loyalty in battle. The two most important officers in the army were Charles Fleetwood, who was generally compliant to the wishes of the soldiers, and John Disbrowe, who openly disliked Richard. The 13-man Council of State, which Richard had inherited from Oliver, was divided between a military group headed by Fleetwood and Disbrowe and a civilian group headed by John Thurloe. The army officers were suspicious of Thurloe's influence over Richard and there were clashes over the possible appointment of new councillors, though in fact Richard made no new appointments to the Council during his Protectorship. Army discontent was made worse because pay had fallen into arrears as the Protectorate's financial crisis deepened. Richard met senior army officers and attempted to win them over. Although he insisted upon retaining supreme command and the power to issue commissions, he appointed Fleetwood lieutenant-general and pledged that he would do all he could to clear arrears of pay. Richard's tactful yet firm stance quietened the army for a time and won him the support of several senior officers, including Major-Generals Whalley, Goffe and Howard. To strengthen his position further, Richard cultivated the friendship of General Monck in Scotland and secretary of state Thurloe. He appointed his brother Henry Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, with full authority over the army there.In order to raise much-needed finances, Richard was obliged to call a new parliament. The Third Protectorate Parliament assembled in January 1659. Richard gave an impressive opening speech and, after several weeks' debate, MPs endorsed the authority of the Protectorate. By early April 1659, it appeared that Richard Cromwell was firmly established as Oliver's successor. However, the Protectorate régime was vehemently opposed by republican "Commonwealthsmen" who worked to spread disaffection against Richard amongst the soldiers. Antagonism between army officers and the conservative majority in Parliament came to a head when the former Major-General William Boteler was threatened with impeachment for actions carried out under Oliver Cromwell's jurisdiction.Amid rumours of an army plot to seize Richard at Whitehall, Major-General Howard offered to arrest the leading conspirators, but once again, Richard succeeded in calming the situation at a face-to-face meeting with senior officers. However, Parliament insensitively began debating the re-organisation of the army and the formation of a new militia. Under this provocation, Fleetwood and Disbrowe demanded Parliament's dissolution. When Richard refused to comply, the Grandees called the soldiers stationed around London to a rendezvous at St James's. Richard called upon the army to rally to him at Whitehall, but the soldiers unanimously followed their officers. On 21 April, Major-General Disbrowe confronted Richard at Whitehall and insisted that he dissolve Parliament and entrust himself to the army, to which Richard reluctantly agreed. The Third Protectorate Parliament was dissolved on 22 April 1659, leaving the Council of Officers in control of the government.Richard was held under house arrest at Whitehall Palace. Fleetwood and Disbrowe intended to maintain the Protectorate under army control, but they were unable to resist the demands of junior officers and republicans for the recall of the Rump Parliament, which Oliver Cromwell had dismissed in 1653. Parliament re-assembled on 7 May 1659 and voted to abolish the Protectorate. With no clear lead from Richard, the English armies stationed in Scotland, Ireland and Dunkirk and the fleet all accepted the change of régime. Richard's renunciation of the Protectorship was read in Parliament on 25 May 1659.Heavily in debt, Richard retired into private life. In the summer of 1660 he left his wife and family in England and went into exile on the Continent. Regarded as a dangerous person by the Restoration government, he remained abroad until 1680. On his return to England, he lived quietly at Cheshunt in Hertfordshire, under the assumed name of John Clarke until his death in July 1712. Often derided as "Tumbledown Dick", Richard Cromwell was generally acknowledged to be a modest and engaging young man who inherited severe financial problems and constitutional difficulties that were not of his own making. His downfall came about through trying to support the civilian Parliament in a confrontation with the Army where he had little personal influence." (David Plant: British Civil Wars, Commonwealth and Protectorate 1638-60)
