[Japanese Hand-Coloured Wood-Block Printing]; [Maps and Atlases]; [Tokyo Map] Hyoshiya Ichirobe
Hyoshiya Ichirobe (Hayashi-shi Yoshinaga), 1684. A large woodcut map of Edo (Tokyo) with fine handcolouring, on joined and folded paper. The map is breathtaking in its detail and features many paintings of important landmarks, temples, bridges and people, who are often pictured working or fishing from boats on the waterways running through Tokyo. A stunning and very rare woodblock map beautifully and unusually handcoloured. Roads, blocks, buildings, open areas, canals and waterways, are all vividly laid out on this huge and most impressive map. 123.5 by 149.5 cm., folded within paper covers, folds to 28 by 18 cm, now preserved in a fine clamshell box. A remarkably well preserved and very rare item, with some light rubbing due to age and as to be expected. A bit of old worming or light soiling and occasional small repairs, but in all quite astonishing in its quality and beautifully preserved with bright and vivid colour and detail. AN EXTRAORDINARY ITEM, REMARKABLE FOR BOTH ITS CARTOGRAPHIC DETAIL AND ITS ARTISTIC BEAUTY. The wood block printing shows land tenures of Daimyo and Hatamoto. It also shows temples and shrines, includes a distance chart and descriptive listing of Daimyo showing crests and halberds. There is also a inset of the eastern portion of Edo.

Thomas More
London: Richard Chiswell. London, Richard Chiswell, 1684. First Thus.First Impression. Hardback. First edition translated by Gilbert Burnet (often quoted as preferable to Ralph Robinson's). One of the most important taproot texts for modern speculative fiction and a milestone in the genre's history. A lovely recent binding, marred by loss from every leaf that has been expertly repaired but still pretty obvious. A little spotted. A rare edition. Pagination: [24], 206. First leaf is a blank, followed by the title page and then the prologue. Our previous copy had to blanks before the title page, though the collation on this copy seems correct. Utopia is one of the most important works to have influenced the field of speculative fiction. In the 500 years since its publication, there have been hundreds of imitators, and the field would be a very different landscape without it. [6441, Hyraxia Books]. . Good.

He lived consecutively in Paris, St. Martins, London (c. 1710), The Hague (c. 1721) and Amsterdam (c. 1728). He is best known as a Dutch cartographer and more specifically for his cartographic contribution in the seminal seven volume Atlas Historique, published in Amsterdam between 1705 and 1720. Innovative for its time, the Atlas Historique combined fine engraving and artwork with scholarly studies of geography, history, ethnology, heraldry, and cosmography. Some scholarship suggests that the Atlas Historique was not exclusively compiled by Henri Chatelain, as is commonly believed, but rather was a family enterprise involving Henri, his father Zacharie and his brother, also Zacharie.

FALCONRY SCREEN DESIGNS
A remarkable survival: twelve original and highly finished drawings of falcons and hawks on their perches, with instructions on coloring and rendering, in preparation for creating a Japanese folding screen (byobu e). We have never encountered such a collection of drawings for a folding screen, revealing a Kano school artist at work. Because of the close association over the centuries to the shogun and aristocrats, Kano School artists had access to the government's mews where the falcons resided (bakufu taka beya). The sport of falconry has had a long history in Japan, beginning in the 4th century. With the succession of Yoshimune Tokugawa (1684-1751), in 1716, the sport of falconry became highly fashionable, an expensive and prestigious activity. It became one of the primary outlets for the militaristic energies of the samurai class during the long period of peace. With this new prestige, many paintings and screens featuring falcons and hawks were commissioned. This scroll contains 12 panels of highly finished preliminary paintings by a very accomplished artist - a member of the Kano School - for a yet unidentified screen. Each panel features a falcon or hawk on its perch. Many of the birds are rendered fully drawn and colored using highly skilled and intricate brush techniques, with notes by the artist on what colors to use for the perches, decorative braids, and background. Some of the colors include gold, pale peach, green, yellow, etc. The plumage of other birds are not fully colored and the artist has left very explicit and complicated notes about what … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hardouin Jean
Excudebat Franciscus Muguet, 1684. In-4° (284x205mm), pp. (54), 610, (1), cartonatura alla rustica coeva con titolo e fregio manoscritti anticamente al dorso. Al frontespizio, stemma calcografico all'Arcivescovo Charles Maurice Le Tellier, dedicatario dell'opera; il blasone del religioso è ripetuto sulla testatina incisa su rame dal Giffart che sormonta la dedicatoria, affiancato da putti, da un leone, da una figura femminile allegorica. Alla dedica fanno seguito un "Index Caesarum, et Augustarum", un indice dei nomi dei magistrati, dei pretori, dei pontefici, un indice delle cose notabili. Aloni marginali alle prime 2 cc. e alle ultime 20 p. ca., nonché alle ultime cc. bianche, al contropiatto e al piatto posteriori; sparse bruniture e fioriture; nell'insieme, più che discreto esemplare a pieni margini. Edizione originale di questa trattazione sulle monete di Grecia e di Roma antica. L'Hardouin (Quimper, Bretagna,1646-Parigi, 1729), sacerdote gesuita, è noto ancora oggi per le sue teorie sul mondo classico estremamente bizzarre e destituite di fondamento per la loro paradossalità già all'epoca; egli credette che la maggior parte delle opere dell'antichità classica (ad eccezione dei poemi omerici, di Erodoto, di Cicerone, di Plinio il Vecchio, delle "Georgiche" virgiliane, delle "Satire" e delle "Epistole" di Orazio) fossero falsi prodotti nel XIII secolo dai monaci benedettini. Bibliotecario del Collège Louis le Grand dal 1683, fu dapprima editore di classici (tra l'altro di una "Naturalis Historia" pliniana ad usum Delphini), poi si volse prevalentemente agli studi numism … [Click Below for Full Description]

DURANTE, CASTORE
Venetia: Presso Gian Giacomo Hertz, 1684. Published in 1585 at the direction of Pope Sixtus V and authored by his personal physician, this popular Italian herbal describes the properties and uses of medicinal herbs from Europe, the West Indies, and Asia and provides us with very detailed and often whimsical woodcut illustrations of salubrious plants. The present copy is from one of only a few early editions and is uncommon (OCLC locates eight copies, two of these in North America). In addition to being a botanist and a doctor, Castore Durante (ca. 1529-90) was a poet, and he wrote the Latin verses that appear as part of many descriptions. In the entry for the arbor tristis, for example, Durante compares the "melancholy tree" to a nymph, and the fanciful woodcut depicts a tree whose trunk is the body of a woman and whose limbs--with carefully detailed, oversized leaves--are her arms stretching up to the moon and stars above. Many of the woodcuts include a tiny human or animal, either tending or eating the plant, and a mere sprig of a fruit bush is shown as a full-grown tree in the midst of a landscape. These flights of imagination are the work of Leonardo Parasole, an Italian engraver and woodcutter, who took the name of his better-known wife, engraver and designer Isabella Parasole (sometimes mistakenly credited for the work here). Durante, whose position as the doctor of the pope no doubt contributed to his authority and to the market for his works, wrote other family medical guides on hygiene and nutrition.. 335 x 230 mm. (13 1/4 x 9 1/4"). 6 p.l., 480 pp, [14] leaves. Or … [Click Below for Full Description]

Athena leans with her left hand on her shield. Woodcut printer's mark on the title, depicting a resting Athena, with the text 'La Minerva'. Edges dyed red) (Condition: Binding scuffed at the extremes. Front joint splitting at the foot, lower joint partly abraded and splitting. Back damaged, head & tail of the spine chafed.

Conley, 'Rhetoric in the European Tradition', Chicago, London, 1990, p. 152) The Society's mission was to teach the young and to convert the protestants, and it 'quickly became the vanguard of the Counterreformation as well as the leading educational force in Europe'. (Idem, ibidem) Ca. 1625 there were 372 Jesuit colleges, where 13000 students were taught, more than almost all such institutions in the rest of Europe. All those students were to be trained in eloquence, for Rhetoric, which was primarily based on Cicero and Quintilian, was a central element in the curriculum of those schools. 'The rapid growth in the number of students created a heavy demand for both elementary texts and handbooks for teachers that would supply (.) a uniform perspective'.

Vellum 16.5 cm Rare first edition of this translation (Ref: Vanderhaegen I, p.41) (Details: Frontispiece engraved by P. Peuteman, it depits Erasmus sitting amidst his conversation partners; in the foreground a satyr bullying Pope Julius II and kicking another cleric; a naked woman (naked truth?) tramples under her feet some scrolls, while removing the mask from a man's face; under this theologian the name Scotus, the scrolls are entitled Bullen. These last 2 figures refer to Erasmus' sneers at the late medieval theologian Duns Scotus, who was the principal butt of his anti-scholastic blows. Scotus' doctinal authority is symbolised by the papal bulls) (Condition: Vellum age-tanned and slightly soiled. Frontispiece cut short at the upper margin. Some small and old ink spots.

From their earliest form of short models of Latin conversation and formulae of etiquette (composed at Paris in 1497 for the use of some pupils and first printed in 1518) they grew into 'a rich and motley collection of dialogues, each a master piece of literary form, well-knit, spontaneous, convincing, unsurpassed in lightness, vivacity and fluent Latin, each one a finished one-act play' (Huizinga).

Brady, Robert
London: printed by Thomas Newcomb for Samuel Lowndes, 1684. FIRST AND ONLY EDITION of this extremely important compilation of legal and historical writings relating to English legal and political history from Anglo-Saxon times down to the Civil War. 12, 412, 60, 68, 15 pp. LEAVES Nn3 AND Qq4 ARE BOTH PRESENT IN TWO STATES (CANCELLANDUM AND CANCELLANS). This bibliographical quirk is entirely unrecorded: no source mentions any cancels in this volume. Each of the three tracts has a separate title-page, but the pagination is continuous. Printed mainly in Roman types, but with many words and phrases printed in black letter (Gothic) types. The appendix is taken entirely from the Domesday book, and is thus in Latin. The extensive glossary (68 pp) represents an important advance in English legal lexicography. Many terms in this glossary are given in Anglo-Saxon and Middle English. Folio. Beautifully bound in 19th-century half morocco and marbled boards. Binding somewhat worn at extremities, but still very solid and attractive. Internally FINE AND BRIGHT. A rare and important book, perhaps unique in this state.

1684. Small 8vo. 2 vols. in one. (8), 252 pp. (14), 9-240, (4) pp. Contemp. French brown morocco with gilt spine (spine-ends repaired). A mixed copy of the 1784 first and the 1788 edition. A Jesuit perspective on the Muslim faith, including many observations on Islamic customs and culture; "contenant les choses les plus curieuses qui regardent Mahomet & l'établissement de sa secte, qui n'ont pas encore été imprimées. Avec des conferences sur la religion chrétienne, & sur l'Alcoran" (subtitle). Indeed, the Tours-born Jesuit Michel Nau (1631-83) had first-hand knowledge of the Middle East: he had undertaken a long voyage to the Holy Land during which he visited Galilee in 1665 and the remainder of Palestine in 1674. He published an account of his journey, "Voyage nouveau de la Terre-Sainte". - From the library of the Abbé de la Paluelle with his ownership to title page and his etched armorial bookplate to pastedown.

Hédelin, François, Abbé d'Aubignac
London: Printed for the Author, and sold by William Cadman, et al., 1684. First English edition. [viii], 135, [1], 176 pp. 4to. Contemporary mottled calf, rebacked, spine in 6 compartments with raised bands, preserving original black morocco spine panels richly gilt in 4 compartments, with red morocco spine labels to style in the other 2. Small triangular tear to title-page, a few ink stains and a few marginal notes from an early reader. First English edition. [viii], 135, [1], 176 pp. 4to. The Classical Treatise of the 17th-Century French Drama. First English translation of this key treatise which codified the rules of 17th-century French dramatic classicism. It was first published in French as La pratique du théatre in 1657. Congreve owned copies of both the first French and first English editions. Hédelin (1604-1676) was a cleric and author; he enjoyed the patronage of Cardinal Richelieu and began writing his treatise in 1640 under the Cardinal's urging. In his own plays, Hédelin attempted to demonstrate his conservative theories of drama. His friendship with Corneille was broken off in part because of the latter's inconsistent methods and adherence to the classical dramatic models that Hédelin espoused. ESTC R16044; Wing A4185. Provenance: Spencer Compton, 8th Duke of Devonshire (1833-1908, bookplate, shelfmark)
