van Keulen, Johannis
Amsterdam. Johannes van Keulen Boekverkoper aande Nieuwnbrugh Inde Gekroonde Loots-man. 1684 - ca 1710. Visible map area 51 x 58 cm. Frame 67,5 x 74 cm. Gilt frame. Passe partout with hand coloured gilt line. Not examined out of the frame. A few minor creases and spots. Strong impression. Nce copy.. A sea chart depicting the swedish east coast from Kalmar sund to the Stockholm archipelago including the islands of Gotland and Öland. The chart is tilted. North is oriented to the east. The dutch dominated the sea chart production in the 17th and 18th centuries. Famous names are Wagenhear, Goos and van Keulen. The van Keulen family was at the forefront of sea chart production from the late 17th through the 18th centuries. Johannes van Keulen published the "Zee-Fackel" in 1681-1682. It was soon printed in new editions in several languages and soon expanded into a five volume set covering most of the world. In 1753 a sixth volume, the so called "Secret Atlas" of the East Indies was published. The "Zee-Faakel" became the most important sea atlas of its time due to Johannes son Gerhard van Keulens great understanding of navigation and the introduction of the Mercator projection into the atlas. In 1706 Gerhard was appointed Hydrographer to the Dutch East India Company becoming responsible for the secret nautical information concerning East India, only to be disributed to mariners on their way to the Indies. Few see charts remains since they were used at see and soon destroyed. Surviving charts were often thrown away when they were not accuarate any more

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most important in bringing Sanson's work to the world, both in improved editions and in bringing to print previously unpublished manuscripts.This map of Asia bears the characteristic clarity and more "scientific" air of the 17th-century French map.Though many sites are mis-located, a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).

Butler, Samuel (1612-1680), and Thomas D'Urfey
London: Printed by T.N. for Henry Herringman and are to be sold by T. Basset, 1684 London: Printed for Joseph Hindmarsh, at the. 1612-1680 Octavo, 4.25 x 6.75 inches. The first collected edition. A-Z, Aa-Cc8. A-Q8. [ ]4, B-N8. This copy is bound in nineteenth century full calf with a gilt spine, with all edges gilt, overall, a very pleasing copy. Hudibras is the most famous work of the last seventeenth century English metaphysical poet. It was much favored by Royalists and often quoted by King Charles II, who awarded Butler 3000 pounds sterling for its composition. Butler's Hudibras is written in iambic tetrameter, like the works of the metaphysical poets but it makes a seachange shift which starts a thread in English literature which runs into the fabric of Laurence Sterne's Tristram Shandy and even to Joyce's Ulysses and Finnegan's Wake. The irreverent treatment and scope of subject is undoubtledy responsible for its great popularity. "Hudibras may be described as a mock-heroic poem dealing with the pretensions and hypocrisies of the presbyterians, independents and other sects which were subversive of the monarchy at the time of the great rebellion. Though it was not published till after the restoration of Charles II, Butler's sympathies were ardently royalist; but his pen, so far as we know, was engaged only fitfully in support of his convictions. His object in putting together in a considerable poem an account of the events and opinions which he had quietly recorded during the convulsive struggles of the nation must have been to ingratiate himself with the king a … [Click Below for Full Description]

This copy is bound with the second edition of the first part, and the first edition of the second volume or fourth part, issued separately the following year and containing an account of South Seas adventures from the journal of Basil Ringrose. This adds the adventures of Captain Cooke, Sharp, and others who "lately setting forth from Jamaica, penetrated into the South-Sea, and there ransack't and pillaged...all they could meet." One of the most interesting pieces of early English Americana, this work has served as the basis for countless novels, stories, and dramas, as well as establishing the popular legends of many famous pirates. One pirate, Sir Henry Morgan, followed a very modern course and sued the author for defamation. He was awarded £200 for damages.

Roma, Angelo de Rossi, 1684. 4to (270 x 210mm). Leaves 5, including engraved title, pp. 77, (1), leaves 6 (index), engraved title, enclosed in broad, figured border containing fowlers on either side and a shield of arms below, and 66 fine full-page engravings of birds and bird hunting scenes. 18th century tree-calf, spine with gilt ornaments and red gilt lettered label. The second and according to Schwerdt superior edition. The first edition appeared in 1622. '...a book on bird catching, delightful, chiefly owing to Tempesta's spirited illustrations of the methods employed by fowlers in the beginning of the 17th century. Olina was not, however, the originator of this work, which was an adaptation of an earlier publication entitled "il canto degl' avgelli", written by Valli da Todi, and printed at Rome in 1601... and it is curious that Olina could have issued his 'Uccelliera' within twenty years of its appearance without making any reference to the original author and yet have escaped detection' (Schwerdt II, p. 48). In addition to the different bird species, the work deals with different methods of catching birds and the art of keeping them in captivity, as well as their diseases. /"Chiefly song-birds are represented of the natural size (pp. 1-50), but in addition (pp. 51-81) there are plates of partridge and quail netting; partridge-hawking with the Goshawk; trap to catch a Sparrow-hawk; and illustrations of the mode in which bird-catchers employ the Little Owl (Civetta) and falconers the Eagle Owl (Gufo)..."

Hennepin, Louis:
Paris. 1684.. [12],312,107pp. 12mo. Bound to style in full calf, gilt, spine elaborately gilt. Very good. Lacks the map. A reissue of the first edition (published the previous year) with the original sheets but a new titlepage, of the first book by the famous Recollet missionary and explorer, Father Louis Hennepin, and a foundation work of Canadiana and Americana, particularly for the Great Lakes region. Unlike some of Hennepin's later works, the truthfulness of his narrative herein is accepted by historians. "In 1684 sheets of this 1683 edition were slightly altered in two issues: the first merely adding a numeral I to the date; the second substituting a new titlepage with 1684 date and Auroy's imprint" - Howes. This copy is the latter, with the new titlepage. Hennepin accompanied the great French explorer, the Sieur de la Salle, on his 1678- 79 expedition from Fort Frontenac to Niagara, then on to the Illinois country where Hennepin was directed to explore further on his own. He ultimately ascended the Mississippi River as far as the Falls of St. Anthony, near where he was captured by the Sioux and held for some time before being released. This book is the narrative of all these adventures, and is notable for its many "firsts": the first use of the name, "Louisiana," the first good account of the Illinois country and upper Mississippi, the first detailed account of the Sioux, and the first navigation of the Great Lakes. It also includes an account of Hennepin's captivity among the Sioux. Few works in the history of American exploration are of greater importance. An import … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Japanese Hand-Coloured Wood-Block Printing]; [Maps and Atlases]; [Tokyo Map] Hyoshiya Ichirobe
Edo [Tokyo]: Hyoshiya Ichirobe (Hayashi-shi Yoshinaga), First month, 1684 (But Third month, 1680). 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.

DUFRESNOY, Charles Alphonse
Peinture...Traduit en François. Enrichy de Remarques, reveu, corrigé, & augmenté. Troisieme Edition. Engraved vignette on title & 32 plates (incl. an engraved title). 6 p.l., 276 pp.; [62] pp. 8vo, cont. speckled calf (joints at head with very short cracks), dark red morocco lettering piece on spine. Paris: N. Langlois, 1684. Third edition, revised, corrected, and enlarged, of this famous and influential poem on painting in elegant Latin hexameter, translated by Roger de Piles (1635-1709). Dufresnoy (1611-68), a native of Paris, studied painting in Rome and Venice and, upon his return, was engaged to furnish the paintings for the magnificent Château du Raincy. He provided many paintings for the chapel, salons, and pavilion but suffered paralysis after two years and was obliged to retire. The present work was originally published in Latin as De Arte Graphica (1st ed.:1668); the work enjoyed many editions in the 17th, 18th, and early 19th centuries. This edition contains the original Latin text with French translation on facing pages. Written during his Italian sojourn, it embodies Dufresnoy's observations on the art of painting and may be termed a critical treatise on the practice of the art, with general advice to students. The precepts are sound according to the standard of his time though the poetical merits are slender in style (formed chiefly on Lucretius and Horace). Dufresnoy stressed the importance of color as an essential component of artistic beauty. This edition contains in the second part the valuable engravings -- engraved title and 31 plates -- by Sebas … [Click Below for Full Description]

Binding - Fine. Text block - VG (last 4 leaves show some edge. 'raggedness' [does not affect text]).. Even though this Boyle work admittedly one of his 'minor' efforts, per Fulton, it remains of interest, for it gives insight "into the author's methods of work. ... On looking into a new subject, Boyle apparently set down methodically the various aspects of the queston which wished to consider, and then 'at odd times and on various occasions' expanded his notes. The same method of presentation and exposition is evident in his 'Humane Blood' and in several of the posthumous publications. Boyle proposed to study all the physical and chemical properties of the various mineral waters, even including such properties as viscosity. Taste, smell, acidity, &c. were of course considered, and the book ends with a discourse on the 'medicinal virtues' of the various waters."

(24) compreso bellissimo antiporta allegorico a p. pag. in rame, 366 (1 c.b.). Un timbro di bibl. estinta al front. ed uno al verso della tav. allegorica (con firma a penna "Spalma", probabilmente apocrifa). Ottimo esemplare. Melzi, vol. 3, pag. 85, ritiene che l'opera sia di mano dello stesso Porroni (Argelati, Bibl. Script. Med., II, 1112). ICCU segnala soli 3 esemplari, catalogati sotto Spalma. Ricordiamo che il Porroni fu autore di un rinomato trattato di Architettura militare (Trattato Universale militare moderno, 1676). L'opera è suddivisa in tre parti: la prima riporta un ampio epistolario con importanti personaggi coi quali il Porroni ha avuto contatto; la seconda è in pratica un trattato di norme cavalleresche da osservarsi da ciascun cavaliere d'onore; la terza parte è la vera e propria apologia al libro "La vita del Conte Bartolomeo Arese Presidente del Senato di Milano", nel quale il Porroni viene diffamato. Interessante, a pag. 350, la presa di posizione in difesa di Giuseppe Francesco Borri, famoso alchimista a quei tempi in prigione a Roma, anch'egli accusato e diffamato nella stessa opera.

Brome, Richard
London : printed for Joseph Hindmarsh, bookseller to His Royal Highness, at the Black Bull in Cornhil, 1684. d. 1652 Quarto, 8.5 x 6.5 inches. Third edition A-H4. This copy is bound in modern green cloth over boards.This play was originally stab sticked, now long perished, it has overall browning but not offensively so. A Jovial crew is play wich adrrsses the possability of a new world providing at least a limited recognition of this socio-economic underside of Caroline England. Our uperclass heroins choose against "a fling to London" to take in the races at Hyde Park, "and see the Adamites run naked afore the Ladies" - but the young women are determined to go in the opposite direction, and join the "stark, errant, downright beggars." They challenge their suitors to join them, and the young men can hardly refuse; they link up with Springlove's band, and enjoy his protection and guidance. It is their "birthright into a new world." " Brome goes farther in A Jovial Crew than most dramatists of his era ever dared. His genteel characters find their comfortable lives intolerably oppressive, and long for liberty and freedom, even that of beggars. The references to the Adamites, and to a Utopia of a new social order, seem to presage the radical social movements of the coming Commonwealth era, the Levellers and Diggers and others. The idealization of the beggars' life, as unrealistic as it is, appears to point to a profound social dissatisfaction.... Brome's A Jovial Crew had links with the theatre and literature of its period, the play also drew upon actual events and th … [Click Below for Full Description]

Exquemelin, possibly a Dutchman, sailed with the French East India Company to Tortuga in 1666, where, along with everything else owned by the Company, he was sold to a "most cruel tyrant and perfidious that ever was born of woman, who was then Governour, or rather Lieutenant-General of that Island."

Leipzig, Christopher Gunther for J. Grossium, and Christoph Breitkopf for J. Gleiditsch, 1684. Small 4to. [19,7 x 15,3 cm]. pp. 467-473 and one plate (Tab. XII) for the article. Contemporary half vellum over boards with title written in contemporary hand on the spine.l The 1684 volume with Leibniz's famous article on differential calculus in an exceedingly rare, unrecorded state. Dibner: "First printing of this epochal work. (...) Fifteen years after Newton's first work in fluxions and nine after his own independent discovery, Leibnitz published the above, his first announcement of the differential calculus". It is known that two distinct issues exist, and this is an unrecorded third, but certainly not latest. In the Norman copy, page 467 is in an uncorrected setting (known now as the first state), with quite a few printing errors in the mathematical formula. In the copy described in Dibner's "Heralds of Science" (previously recognized as a first issue), the page is entirely reset, with corrections, but is obviously now recorded as the second 'state' or 'issue'. Our copy is similar to the Norman copy, with page 467 in an uncorrected state. However, in our copy the plate next to page 467 differs from both Norman and Dibner: the letters "M. Oct" are printed at the top of the sheet underneath the plate number. What we have here thus, is yet another issue of the work and it is still unclear which one is the true first. It is, however, not unthinkable that this is the true first issue, since there would be little reason to add "M. Oct" to the plate if it was issued at a later da … [Click Below for Full Description]
