LUDOLPH, Job.
Utrecht, Johannes Ribbius, 1687.4to. Later half vellum, with old brocade-paper to boards. With folding map (mounted on Japanese paper) and 8 engraved plates (3 folding). 222,(10) pp.First Dutch edition. - The treatise by the scholar, Job (Hiob) Ludolf (1624-1704), was first published in Latin, Historia Aethiopica, in 1681, and is regarded as the first authoritative account of Abyssinia. He has been called the 'founder of Ethiopian studies in Europe'. Although he never visited the country, Ludolf formed a close working relationship with an Ethiopian monk resident in Rome, himself clearly a highly intelligent man. From this fruitful partnership emerged grammars and dictionaries of the classical Ethiopian language as well as a lengthy history of the country. The large folding map by Tellez, is a landmark of cartography, as it is the first to show the source of the Blue Nile at Lake Tana. The fine plates depict illustrations of Ethiopean fauna, a banana plant, decapitation of missionnaries, etc.- (Owner's name on title-page; partly dampstaining, slight browning, stronger to one quire). - Rare Dutch edition.Tiele 702; Cat.

The repairs to the front board corners look very rustic when seen from pastedown side, looking better with age appropriate roughness from outside. I wonder if the book might have a hint of old smoke smell. The text has notable texture, waviness, moisture stains, but, the foxing seems at bay, given books age.

[PENN, William]
London: Andrew Sowle. 1687. First. First edition. Very good in later, faded marbled paper wrappers; pages age-toned, with light waterstaining to upper halves, and last leaf with a closed tear. An early hand has inked "Wm. Penn" in the upper margin of the title-page. Six years after being made master of the province of Pennsylvania, William Penn argues for religious tolerance and liberty of conscience for all Christians; this anonymously published pamphlet, issued during a time of intense antagonism among Catholics, Anglicans and Dissenters, makes the then-radical claim that multiple faiths could coexist within one country without having to strive for dominance. Less frequently seen on the market than some Penn publications. Wing (2nd ed.), P1296B. .

Jacob van Huysum was born in Amsterdam in about 1687, a member of a renowned family of professional flower painters who enjoyed considerable success in Holland. His father was Justus van Huysum (1659-1716), and his brother Jan van Huysum (1682-1749).

Van Huysum came to England about 1721, in which year he was living in the house of a patron, Mr. Lockyear of the South Sea House.

First edition of this important catalogue of the Leiden botanic garden portraying numerous exotic recently introduced plants. "Hermann returned to Leiden in 1680 on receiving an appointment as Professor of Botany and director of the botanic garden. He devoted himself assiduously to building up the Leiden garden with rare plants from the East Indies, America and the Cape. His first publication, 'Horti academici Lugduno-Batavi catalogus', Leiden 1687, was a descriptive catalogue of the plants in the University garden in which many are attractively illustrated, including 34 Cape plants" (Gunn & Codd, Botanical exploration of Southern Africa pp. 26-27)."Paul Hermann was director of the Leiden Botanical garden from 1679-1695. He did excellent, vigorous work in depicting his plants, and one group of his drawings of Ceylon plants, made in the second half of the 17th century, had an interesting history. They were carefully preserved for many years by a series of collectors, one of whom finally brought them to the attention of Linné in 1745. Linné found them so exciting that he based his 'Flora Zeylandica' on them in 1747 ." (Hunt 378). Thousands of specimens from outside the Netherlands were in cultivation towards the end of the century and the garden attained world-wide reknown.
