Asia AsiaA decorative map prepared by Prof. Johann Matthias Haas (1684-1742), who produced a number of continental and regional maps for the atlases issued by the firm of Homann Heirs in 1744. Kamchatka has been reduced to its proper size vis à vis Johann Christoph's version, while Siberia is drawn with an outline familiar to us today.The coastal waters of Japan remain a little haphazard with Hokkaido -Terra Efo, Yedso ou Yesfo- still attached to the mainland, but Sakhalin Island (Sagalien) is clearly marked. The Malay Peninsula has a very poor outline compared to earlier maps by Homann. Johor (Iohor) is located on the north-east coastline (somewhere in the vicinity of present day Kota Bahru). Tibet, which is named, bears the alternative title of "Dalai Lammae". Original handcolouring. Size: 47,6 x 55,3 cm. Price: € 625,- (excl. VAT/BTW).

Hallmann, Johann Christian.
Breslau, Fellgiebel, (1684). Sehr seltene erste Gesamtausgabe dieses Dramatikers in der Nachfolge Lohensteins. Von Hallmann (1640?-1716?) ist wenig mehr als dieser Sammelband seiner Bühnenwerke bekannt. Als dramatischer Dichter von achtzehn zum Teil ungedruckt gebliebenen Bühnenwerken – acht wurden zwischen 1662 und 1671 uraufgeführt, lediglich vier erschienen in Einzeldrucken – war Hallmann auf der Höhe seines Schaffens eine von den Zeitgenossen geschätzte Persönlichkeit. Dennoch lassen sich weder Geburts- noch Sterbedatum mit Sicherheit feststellen. "Als Gerichtspraktikant fand er Anstellung in Breslau, wo er sich in poetischen Nebenstunden einen Namen als Dramatiker und Gelegenheitsdichter schuf. Seine ausgesprochen opernhaft wirkenden Bühnenwerke wurden nachweislich wiederholt aufgeführt. Auch bei festlichen Anlässen, wie der Kaiserhochzeit 1673 oder der Breslauer Bischofsweihe 1676 war es stets H., der zur poetischen Würdigung der Feierlichkeiten herangezogen wurde. Die letzten Lebensjahre verbrachte er offenbar in größter Armut, vergebens versuchend, sich durch gelegentliche Aufführungen seiner dramatischen Werke über Wasser zu halten" (Dünnhaupt). Von einigen zeitgenössischen Dichterkollegen wurde Hallmann recht kritisch beurteilt: Gryphius sprach hochmütig von ihm, Neumeister lehnte ihn als "hölzern und ungelenk" verächtlich ab und nennt ihn pastörlich "grandiloqus usque ad vicium", doch schon Gottsched stellte ihn als "vierten tragischen Dichter der besonderen Art" neben Gryphius, Opitz und Lohenstein.

Die motivgeschichtlich einflussreichen 'Moralia Horatiana' (vgl. z. B. Faber du Faur über die Verdeutschung durch Philipp v. Zesen) nehmen unter den Emblembüchern Veens eine Sonderstellung ein: "Ein leichter, scherzhafter Unterton klingt in dem Buche auf, in dem die Emblematik sich selber zu parodieren scheint" (Monroy S. 54). "Otto van Veen was one of the foremost printers und best engravers of his time, Rubens having been his pupil. In the field of book illustrations he became famous as the creator of the very important and widely imitated book of emblems ." (Faber du Faur).

Sigüenza y Góngora, Carlos de.
Mexico: Juan Ribera Small 4to. [12], 206 ff., coat of arms.. 1684 Polymath" is the term most often applied to Siguenza y Gongora (1645?-1700), and indeed he was a cosmographer, philosopher, chronicler, poet, biographer, historian, cartographer, and priest. Here he is wearing the hats of a chronicler and a biographer, as he, "an intellectual friend of Sor Juana [Ines de la Cruz] and at the same time a man of science and religiosity, [writes] the history of the convent of Jesus Maria and the biography of some of its notable nuns." His Parayso occidental is "a classic example of baroque[-era] writing on the monastic life of nuns [in Mexico]" (both quotations from Lavrin, p. 205). As such, the volume is important; and even apart from its association with the Spanish world's Tenth Muse," it is => a basic starting place for the study of nuns, the economics of nunneries, and the political life of the same. As is increasingly the case with Mexican imprints of the 17th century, it is => little found in the marketplace.

Le Cène, Charles
Chez Henry Desbordes, Amsterdam, 1684. Klein-Oktav, ca. 13 x 8,4 cm. 7 Blatt, 367 Seiten. Neueres Ganzleder mit Rückenschild, vier falschen Bünden und Blindprägung. (gering kratzspurig, innen am oberen Schnitt teils etwas knapp beschnitten ohne Textverlust, nur sehr wenig gebräunt oder braunfleckig, insgesamt gut erhalten). Le Cène (um 1647 - 1703) war ein französischer Theologe von hugenottischer Herkunft, der in den Niederlanden und in England wirkte. Studiert hatte er in Sedan, Genf und Saumur, 1672 wurde er in Caen protestantisch ordiniert. Er wirkte in Honfleur und Charenton, bis er nach dem Widerruf des Ediktes von Nantes nach Den Haag floh. Die letzten Jahre seines Lebens verbrachte er in England, wo er auch starb. Er war radikaler Rationalist, der den orthodoxen Theologen der reformierten Kirche entgegentrat. Le Cène ging von der Überlegenheit der menschlichen Vernunft aus und las aus der Bibel die Grösse des Menschen heraus, was im Gegensatz zur orthodoxen Lesart stand, die die Verdorbenheit des Menschen betonte. Seine rationalistische Kritik mündete wie bei Sozzini in eine ethische Akzentuierung des Christentums - teils frei zitiert nach Erich Haase, "Einführung in die Literatur des Refuge", 1959. Der Einband ist signiert "Bagguley", das ist George Thomas Bagguley (1860 - nach 1934), tätig in Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire. 200 Gramm. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

HOLME, Thomas. (1624 - 95)
Amsterdam: Jacob Claus, 1684. Engraved folding map. Sheet size: 10 x 13 3/4 inches. Provenance: Martin P. Snyder. Rare, Dutch edition of Holme's plan of Philadelphia, and the first printed map to "depict an English colonial North American town" (Burden) "...[A] green country town, which will never be burnt, and always be wholesome." These words, written by William Penn, were part of his directive to his commissioners and Surveyor-General, Captain Thomas Holme, and they were the basis of the plan they laid out for the city to be, Philadelphia, in 1682. Among the earliest examples of city planning, William Penn's square grid of the city was surveyed and drafted in Philadelphia. Intended to reflect and incite orderliness and to ease the dividing of lots, the plan was also projected to thwart the destruction of fires by laying wide streets at right angles and even discourage the spread of contagious disease. (Penn had witnessed the Plague of 1665 and the Great Fire of London in 1666). Holme's engraved plan was first published as the frontispiece to Penn's promotional tract, " A Letter to the Committee of the Free Society of Traders in London" in 1683. Benjamin Furly, a Quaker trader in Rotterdam and owner of 4,000 acres in Pennsylvania, represented Penn's interests on the continent. Doubtless it was through him that a Dutch edition of Penn's letter promoting his colony was promptly printed in Amsterdam. With the reprinting of the letter came a new engraved plan of the Philadelphia city grid prepared from Thomas Holme's "Portraiture". The new plan was by no means an exact copy o … [Click Below for Full Description]

DANCKERTS, Justus (1635-1701)
[Amsterdam, 1684. Engraved map. Minor expert repairs. A fine example of the second state of Danckerts' important map. This important map is derived from the Visscher map of about 1655, which is itself drawn from the Janssonius map of 1651. Philip Burden lists three states of this map: the first which was probably published in about 1673 and is easily recognized as it does not include Philadelphia and there is no mention of Pennsylvania in the title. Burden writes of the present second state: "Following the founding of Philadelphia a revised state was produced ... Danckerts updated the map in a significant manner. The Delaware River is completely revised so that it no longer connects with the Hudson River ... Pennsylvania is named, its boundary is marked, and many largely domestic animals are engraved within the region. Recognition of the English hold over New Amsterdam is seen in the addition to the title of the view of [the words] Nieuw Yorck, eetÿs Genaemt above. ... Along with the addition to the view title ... the main [title] ... has had [the words] Pennsylvaniæ, et partis added as the third line." (Burden, II pp.39-40).

DU VAL, Pierre (1618-1683)
Paris, 1684. Engraved with period outline colour. Good condition, expertly repaired split at centerfold and parallel tear from the base. Mild toning due to age. Small crease lower left. Pierre Duval was Nicholas Sanson's nephew, and his work was primarily editing and augmenting Sanson's innovative cartography. He and Hubert Jaillot were most important in bringing Sanson's work to the world, both in improved editions and in bringing to print previously unpublished manuscripts. This map of Asia bears the characteristic clarity and more "scientific" air of the 17th-century French map. Though many sites are mis-located, a vast amount of material has been examined and assessed. Most placenames represent geographical entities that currently exist or once existed. The rendition of the lower islands of Japan and the peninsula of Korea are improved over earlier studies. Details of the Great Wall of China are also visible. This map, dated 1684, was issued by Pierre's daughter, "Mlle." Duval, the year after his death. Pastoureau, Duval II E, (9).

Sigüenza y Góngora, Carlos de.
Mexico: Juan Ribera Small 4to. [12], 206 ff., coat of arms.. 1684 Polymath" is the term most often applied to Siguenza y Gongora (1645–1700), and indeed he was a cosmographer, philosopher, chronicler, poet, biographer, historian, cartographer, and priest. Here he is wearing the hats of a chronicler and a biographer, as he, "an intellectual friend of Sor Juana [Ines de la Cruz] and at the same time a man of science and religiosity, [writes] the history of the convent of Jesus Maria and the biography of some of its notable nuns." His Parayso occidental is "a classic example of baroque[-era] writing on the monastic life of nuns [in Mexico]" (both quotations from Lavrin, p. 205). As such, the volume is important; and even apart from its association with the Spanish world's Tenth Muse," it is => a basic starting place for the study of nuns, the economics of nunneries, and the political life of the same. As is increasingly the case with Mexican imprints of the 17th century, it is => little found in the marketplace. Provenance: 18th-century ownership signature on title-page and first leaf of preliminaries of the Conde del Fresno de la Fuente. Late 19th-century Mexican quarter dark green morocco with mottled green paper sides; binding rubbed and abraded. Pencilling on front fly-leaf and title-page verso; top margins closely cropped occasionally costing top of letters of running heads and foliation. Worming, chiefly in margins but occasionally into the text, not costing words, sometimes repaired; first and last few leaves with old repairs to corners and margins and a bit of text re … [Click Below for Full Description]

Passinger, 1684 - Two parts in one, small 4to, 19th century black half calf, reddish-orange paper boards, gilt decorations and lettering. Frontispiece to each part. ? A 17th century black-letter edition of a famous and popular late 16th century English romance, highly derivative of the Spanish novels of chivalry, but sufficiently influential on its own to appear in more than 20 editions over the course of 100 years and to be referred to in at least six 17th century English plays. See the DNB online. Little is recorded about Ford (sometimes spelled Forde), who wrote other popular romances. This was his best seller. Bibliographical manuscript notes on the front blank; frontispiece in part one laid down; title-page repaired on the verso; recently recased with new endpapers; very good copy. Wing F-1537; ESTC R36462; NCBEL I, 2054 Stated "Twelfth Impression [i.e., edition]" on the title-page, which is not grossly incorrect. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Catullus
Isaacum Littleburii, 1684, Hardcover (Full Leather), Book Condition: Good Condition. This is the first edition published, though not printed in England. Vossi's commentary was highly regarded and the text he presents here, in Latin, of Catullus's poetry is not censored. Complete with index and errata leaf at the back. This copy is bound in contemporary leather with decorated spine. The leather is somewhat scuffed and bumped and the decoration and label are worn. Nonetheless it presents rather well. Size: Quarto.
