        Schöne und rahre Landschafften in Italien und andern Ländern nach dem Leben gezeichnet von Joh. Wilhelm Baurn Solche von Melchior Küßel in Kupffer gestochen

      Augsburg: Johann Ulrich Krauss, 1700. Oblong 4to (240 x 282 mm). 18 plates: engraved title and 17 numbered etchings, engraved captions in German, by Melchior Küsel after Baur. Watermarks: 1) hunting horn, 45 x 32 mm., lettered below A I F; 2) serpent (95 x 37 mm.) coiled around an anchor(?) with leaf-shaped upper escutcheon lettered MD(?). Most in very good impressions. Some marginal soiling or foxing, a stain to title from erasure of shelfmark, crease marks to a few plates, plate 6 just shaved at foremargin. Modern morocco-backed boards (bowed). Provenance: Carl Gustav Schmidtsche Bibliothek, purple ink-stamp on title with ink shelfmark no. 494 (old attempts to erase the same number elsewhere on title-page causing small stain).*** only separate edition of a suite of delightful landscape etchings after the miniature painter and engraver J. W. Baur, etched by Melchior Küsel, Augsburg engraver and goldsmith, and published by his son-in-law Johann Ulrich Krauss, the preeminent Augsburg print publisher of his generation. The etchings show mountainous or riparian vistas from Italy, the Alps, the Pyrénées, and Dalmatia, dotted with castles, waterfalls, grazing sheep, etc., most painted from life by Baur on his travels to and from Italy in the 1630s. These sensitive small format landscapes and views, which Baur painted habitually on vellum and with which he came to be associated, are depicted as subjects in their own right or dominate foreground scenes of, for example, Neapolitan peasants playing ball, hunting parties, mythological or religious subjects such as Daphne and Phoebus or St. Leopold's discovery of his wife's veil (on which site he founded Klosterneuburg), or even a pair of unidentified strolling angels. This is one of at least five different thematic tirages à part published by Krauss of selected plates from Baur's and Küsel's Iconographia, a four-part collection of Baur's work, encompassing a Passion suite as well as a selection of his landscapes, emblems, garden views, etc., first published (also by Krauss) in 1670-72 and reprinted four times thereafter, with the last edition appearing in 1702. The plates appeared in part 3 of the Iconographia; for this issue the imprints were re-engraved within the image, the plates were renumbered, and the captions, in letterpress in the Iconographia, were engraved (and occasionally shortened) in the lower blank margins of each plate. I locate no copies in the US; OCLC and KVK list 4 copies in German libraries. In N. America there are copies of the Iconographia (various editions) at Harvard, Univ. of Louisville, Getty Center, the Univ. of Laval, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. VD17 1:073094G (16 plates only); Hollstein German 22:476-490; cf. Thieme-Becker (Seeman reprint) 3:89-90 and 22:73-4.

      T'Amsterdam / T'Utrecht: Daniel van den Dalen. François Halma. De wed. van A. van Someren / J. en Wilhelm vande Water. Boekverkopers, 1700. Early Reprint. Vellum. Fine. Profusely illustrated edition of Cats's complete collected works, first published in 1655. Two folio volumes bound in one, each separately paged and signed, and each with additional engraved title page bearing a portrait of the author, as well as sectional title pages with engraved vignettes. [28],666 [i.e. 662: 183-184 repeated and 343-348 omitted],[10]; [18],390,[6],393-608,61,[1] pp, with full-page portraits of the author and of Anna Maria Schurman, three double-page plates, and more than 400 superb copper-engraved half- and quarter-page plates (most from the original designs of Adrian van de Venne), numerous tailpieces of bouquets, and historiated initials. Recent period-style full vellum binding by Fitterer, mustard lettering piece decorated and lettered in gilt, end papers renewed. An exemplary example in a magnificent vellum binding, occasional spotting and minor marginal browning internally, else fresh and bright with deep rich impressions of type and plates. Cats was a Dutch statesman and writer of emblem books, a type of popular, seventeenth-century literature consisting of woodcuts or engravings accompanied by didactic verses pointing a moral or presenting an ethical concern often related to love and marriage. (Dutch artists of the Golden Age, including Vermeer, used such books as inspiration for motifs in their paintings and prints.) The sources upon which Cats draws for this combination of emblem literature and love poetry are chiefly the Bible and the classics and occasionally Boccaccio and Cervantes. His first book, Sinne-en minnebeelden ("Portraits of Morality and Love") contained 96 emblematic engravings with text in Dutch, Latin, and French, each emblem with a threefold interpretation, expressing what were for Cats the three elements of human life: love, society, and religion. Perhaps his most famous emblem book, written in a more homely style than his earlier works, is Spiegel van den ouden en nieuwen tyt ("Mirror of Old and New Times"), with 128 emblematical engravings accompanied by quotations, many of which have become household sayings. Two other works—Houwelyk ('Marriage') and Trou-ringh ('Wedding Ring'), with 59 plates—are rhymed dissertations on marriage and conjugal fidelity. Finally, in one of his last books, Ouderdom, buyten-leven en hof-gedachten ("Old Age, Country Life, and Garden Thoughts"), with 27 plates, Cats writes movingly about his declining years.

Demonstré dans XVIII emblemes. ..."Paris" [= Amsterdam], "imprimé â l'imprimerie royale du Petit Louis" [= Carel Allard, 1706?]. Small folio (32 x 21 cm). Engraved print series with an engraved title-page and 24 engraved prints (9 single-page and 15 double-page; 18 bound in and 6 loosely inserted), the double-page prints with extensive letterpress text flanking and/or below the engraving. Contemporary marbled-paper wrappers.

      Atlas van Stolk 3182; Brunet I, pp. 194-195; Cohen, col. 28; KVK & WorldCat (3 copies); Muller, Historieplaten 3038-3071. Extremely rare complete emblematic print series (plus alternative versions of several prints) mercilessly satirizing and ridiculing King Louis XIV of France, his grandson King Philip V of Spain, the Marquise de Maintenon (whom Louis XIV had secretly married after she had been his mistress for years), many others in Louis XIV's court and his allies in the War of the Spanish Succession (1700/01-1714). Most prints, like the title-page, have texts in both Dutch and French. The title and many of the prints gleefully note the total eclipse of the sun that occurred on 12 May 1706, supposedly the day Philip V abandoned his siege of Barcelona (which had been taken by the British six months earlier), presenting it as the total eclipse of the Sun King.In 1877 Muller noted the "great rarity" of all these prints, surviving in far fewer numbers than satirical prints of poorer quality and less importance. "Their value as expressions of the spirit and life of the common people is inestimable: indeed, there is almost no period in our history for which we possess such a rich treasure of prints." They also influenced the better known series on the 1720 South Sea Bubble, two of the present prints serving as direct models for prints in that series. The title-page attributes the emblems to "the leading masters of our century" and some of the plates have been attributed to Romeyn de Hooghe and/or someone from his school, Laurens Scherm and the publisher Carel Allard himself.Although no two copies of the print series have the same makeup, and many of the emblems exist in variant forms, the present set of prints includes the engraved title-page, at least one of each of the 19 emblems noted by Muller, and two versions of some, so it may be called "complete". The present copy includes a major variant not recorded by Muller (or elsewhere).With 6 prints loosely inserted, 3 of them with a slightly tattered fore-edge, 1 also with a marginal tear along an old fold repaired with tape, and 1 bound print slightly browned, but still generally in very good condition. The spine of the marbled wrapper is mostly lost and the sides rubbed, with a few small and minor tears and stains, but the binding structure remains sound. One of the best and most extensive copies of an extremely rare and important popular satirical print series from the War of the Spanish Succession.

      Florence: n.p., 1700. Edizione Testina. Vignette of Machiavelli's portrait on title. Separate dated title pages to all parts except the Historie fiorentine which begins the volume. Dell'arte della guerra contains typographical figures depicting military formations and a double-page woodcut illustration depicting an army camp, and a manuscript table of contents following L'asino d'oro. Contemporary half vellum and marbled boards, manuscript titles on spine. Despite some browning and damp-staining, an excellent copy with an ownership inscription dated 1801 on the paste-down. I. Early edition of the political works of Machiavelli, which include: --Gli otto libri delle Historie Fiorentine. --Discorsi di Nicolo Machiavelli cittadino et secretario fiorentino, sopra la prima deca di T. Livio a Zanobi Buondelmonti et a Cosimo Rucellai. --I sette libri dell'arte della guerra di Nicolo Machiavelli cittadino et secretario fiorentino. --L'asino d'oro di Nicolo Machiavelli cittadino et secretario fiorentino, con tutte l'altre sue operette: La contenenza delle quali haurai nella seguente carta. --Il principe di Nicolo Machiavelli al magnifico Lorenzo di Piero de Medici. La vita di Castruccio Castracani. Il modo che tenne il Duca Valentino per ammazzare Vitellozzo Vitelli, Oliveretto da Fermo, il signor Pargolo, & il Duca di Gravina. I ritratti delle cose di Francia & di Alemagna. This particular publication is called the Edizione Testina, named after the author's woodcut portrait on all the half-titles. Five variant editions are known, all showing 1550 as the (fictitious) year of printing on the title page, but which in reality are seventeenth-century forgeries. The Testina edition constitutes an interesting bibliographic case because of the particular difficulties of identification for the presence of variants, omissions and rearrangements. Machiavelli's masterpiece, Il Principe, is the work with which he "founded the science of modern politics" by analyzing Cesare Borgia's much-admired "mixture of audacity and prudence, cruelty and fraud, self-reliance and distrust of others" (PMM). Machiavelli firmly believes in the separation between politics and ethics, as each have different objects and goals. The term "Machiavellian" has come to mean a ruthlessness and immorality behavior in politics. He stated that total freedom from the religious power was the principle of a healthy State. The work was written in 1513 but was not published in Rome until 1532, five years after Machiavelli's death. Il Principe exerted an enormous influence across disciplines and nations. The work soon became a practical examination of how "power" functioned. It was first placed on the Index of Prohibited Books, in the banned absolutely category, in 1559. The list of rulers who read and used the work is very long: "Henry III and Henry IV of France were carrying copies when they were murdered; Louis XIV used the book as 'his favorite nightcap'; an annotated copy was found in Napoleon Bonaparte's coach at Waterloo." Machiavelli (1469-1527) is known as the father of modern political theory. Born in Florence, he was a diplomat for 14 years in Italy's Florentine Republic during the Medici family's exile when the city was run by Girolamo Savonarola, a Dominican friar. No official records of Machiavelli's life appear until 1498, immediately after the fall of Savonarola's government, when he would have been 29. The Florentine Republic had been reinstated, and Machiavelli was appointed as secretary of the Second Chancery, a position in which he coordinated relations with Florence's territorial possessions. As the "Florentine secretary," he had opportunities to meet and observe many of the major political figures of the period. When the Medici family returned to power in 1512, Machiavelli was dismissed and briefly jailed. II. First edition of a little known political work. Written in the form of a dialogue in twenty-five inquiries (Consultationes), in which Vanitas (Vanity) and Veritas (Truth) discuss issues concerning policy-making in the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. A commentary on techniques of making correct political decisions, the author examines the notion of prudence or practical reason (prudentia) stemming from Cicero's work. The third Consultatio of the work, De discordiis civilibus, et unione animorum (On discord between citizens, and on unanimity) is the most helpful passage to understand the author's use of prudentia. Vanitas expresses concern about the dissent among citizens, while Veritas encourages to embrace it as long as it is viewed as the guiding principle of the world. Here we can see a similarity with Machiavelli's Il Principe in asserting that a statesman's duty is to find an appropriate means of using those very internal tensions for the advantage of his own goals as well as those of the state. Although this works contains both similarities and contrasts with Machiavelli's thinking, it is very controversial due to its discrepancies at the point where Lubomirski describes the duties and characteristics of a ruler. It swings from being a pessimistic view of the political situation in the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth to a commentary on techniques of making correct political decisions. Lubomirski (1642-1702) was a Polish politician that fought in wars against Sweden and Hungary. In contrast to his father, Jerzy Sebastian Lubomirski (1616-1667), military commander and one of the most significant magnates of the seventeenth century, Stanislao was free of private ambitions and always acted according to the interests of the Republic. He was a prolific writer of poetry, plays, religious and historical treatises. III: Scarce edition of a penetrating operetta in which the author deals with the legal and economic problems related to the birth of the modern city and state. Botero (1544-1617), an eminent economist and political theorist, joined the Jesuit Order in 1560 but left due to disagreements with his superiors. He became secretary to Cardinal Charles Borromeo, but in 1559 moved to Turin as tutor to the children of Charles Emmanuel of Savoy. A passionate reader of Machiavelli, he exposed his political views in his most famous work, Della Ragion di Stato (1598), the first to express the concept of the Reason of the State, in which Botero argues, against Machiavelli, that a prince's power must be based on some form of consent of his subjects, and princes must make every effort to win the people's affection and admiration.

The first part covers maps of the ancient world, sacred and secular. The second part gives the main catalogue of geographical maps, briefly covering the world and the arctic before continuing with Europe, arranged by countries and sub-divided by duchy, province, department or county, followed by Africa, Asia and America. It covers maps by the 16th and 17th century's leading publishers of atlases and single-sheet maps, including Ortelius, Hondius, Blaeu, Janssonius, Visscher, Sanson, De Wit, Danckerts and Allard, but also includes maps from more fugitive sources like local histories. The last part describes some 130 sea charts, pilot guides and sea atlases, mainly by Goos, Van Loon and Theunis Jacobsz.With a marginal stain in the corner of the first 2 quires. Binding somewhat rubbed and hinges reinforced. Good copy of a rare pioneering work of carto-bibliography.

Extremely rare complete emblematic print series (plus alternative versions of several prints) mercilessly satirizing and ridiculing King Louis XIV of France, his grandson King Philip V of Spain, the Marquise de Maintenon (whom Louis XIV had secretly married after she had been his mistress for years), many others in Louis XIV's court and his allies in the War of the Spanish Succession (1700/01-1714). Most prints, like the title-page, have texts in both Dutch and French. The title and many of the prints gleefully note the total eclipse of the sun that occurred on 12 May 1706, supposedly the day Philip V abandoned his siege of Barcelona (which had been taken by the British six months earlier), presenting it as the total eclipse of the Sun King.In 1877 Muller noted the "great rarity" of all these prints, surviving in far fewer numbers than satirical prints of poorer quality and less importance. "Their value as expressions of the spirit and life of the common people is inestimable: indeed, there is almost no period in our history for which we possess such a rich treasure of prints." They also influenced the better known series on the 1720 South Sea Bubble, two of the present prints serving as direct models for prints in that series. The title-page attributes the emblems to "the leading masters of our century" and some of the plates have been attributed to Romeyn de Hooghe and/or someone from his school, Laurens Scherm and the publisher Carel Allard himself.Although no two copies of the print series have the same makeup, and many of the emblems exist in variant forms, the present set of prints includes the engraved title-page, at least one of each of the 19 emblems noted by Muller, and two versions of some, so it may be called "complete". The present copy includes a major variant not recorded by Muller (or elsewhere).With 6 prints loosely inserted, 3 of them with a slightly tattered fore-edge, 1 also with a marginal tear along an old fold repaired with tape, and 1 bound print slightly browned, but still generally in very good condition. The spine of the marbled wrapper is mostly lost and the sides rubbed, with a few small and minor tears and stains, but the binding structure remains sound. One of the best and most extensive copies of an extremely rare and important popular satirical print series from the War of the Spanish Succession.

        Historia Christi Persice conscripta.With: (2) XAVIER, Hieronymous (Jerónimo de EZPELETA Y GOÑI). Historia S. Petri Persice conscripta.(3) DIEU, Ludovicus de. Rudimenta linguae Persicae. Leiden, Bonaventura and Abraham Elzevier, 1639. 3 works in 1 volume. 4to. Vellum (ca. 1700?).

      - Rahir 473, 486-487; Smitskamp 310-312; Willems 477, 490. First editions of three pioneering works of Persian scholarship prepared for publication by Ludovicus de Dieu (1590-1642) and printed and published by the Elzeviers in Leiden. The first and longest is a life of Christ originally written in Portuguese by an unknown author and translated into Persian by Xavier (1549-1642) and his pupil Abd al-Sattar (active 1597-1615) at the Mogul court. The second work is a life of Saint Peter from a life of the Apostles newly written by Xavier in Persian, perhaps also with the aid of his Persian-speaking students. The third work, written by De Dieu or possibly by Johann Elichmann (ca. 1600-1639?) and edited by De Dieu, is the first printed grammar of the Persian language and served as the principal source for at least two that followed in the next fifty years. At the end it gives the first two chapters of Genesis in Persian translation.With an owner's motto on the title-page. With the title-page of the first work and its conjugate somewhat browned and some slightly browned patches in the third work, but further in very good condition, with only an occasional leaf showing minor marginal blemishes. Spine label worn and tattered, but the binding is otherwise good. Three pioneering works of Persian scholarship, printed in matching style by the Leiden Elzeviers at the height of their careers.

      n.p., Florence 1700 - Vignette of Machiavelli's portrait on title. Separate dated title pages to all parts except the Historie fiorentine which begins the volume. Dell'arte della guerra contains typographical figures depicting military formations and a double-page woodcut illustration depicting an army camp, and a manuscript table of contents following L'asino d'oro. Contemporary half vellum and marbled boards, manuscript titles on spine. Despite some browning and damp-staining, an excellent copy with an ownership inscription dated 1801 on the paste-down. I. Early edition of the political works of Machiavelli, which include: --Gli otto libri delle Historie Fiorentine. --Discorsi di Nicolo Machiavelli cittadino et secretario fiorentino, sopra la prima deca di T. Livio a Zanobi Buondelmonti et a Cosimo Rucellai. --I sette libri dell'arte della guerra di Nicolo Machiavelli cittadino et secretario fiorentino. --L'asino d'oro di Nicolo Machiavelli cittadino et secretario fiorentino, con tutte l'altre sue operette: La contenenza delle quali haurai nella seguente carta. --Il principe di Nicolo Machiavelli al magnifico Lorenzo di Piero de Medici. La vita di Castruccio Castracani. Il modo che tenne il Duca Valentino per ammazzare Vitellozzo Vitelli, Oliveretto da Fermo, il signor Pargolo, & il Duca di Gravina. I ritratti delle cose di Francia & di Alemagna. This particular publication is called the Edizione Testina, named after the author's woodcut portrait on all the half-titles. Five variant editions are known, all showing 1550 as the (fictitious) year of printing on the title page, but which in reality are seventeenth-century forgeries. The Testina edition constitutes an interesting bibliographic case because of the particular difficulties of identification for the presence of variants, omissions and rearrangements. Machiavelli's masterpiece, Il Principe, is the work with which he "founded the science of modern politics" by analyzing Cesare Borgia's much-admired "mixture of audacity and prudence, cruelty and fraud, self-reliance and distrust of others" (PMM). Machiavelli firmly believes in the separation between politics and ethics, as each have different objects and goals. The term "Machiavellian" has come to mean a ruthlessness and immorality behavior in politics. He stated that total freedom from the religious power was the principle of a healthy State. The work was written in 1513 but was not published in Rome until 1532, five years after Machiavelli's death. Il Principe exerted an enormous influence across disciplines and nations. The work soon became a practical examination of how "power" functioned. It was first placed on the Index of Prohibited Books, in the banned absolutely category, in 1559. The list of rulers who read and used the work is very long: "Henry III and Henry IV of France were carrying copies when they were murdered; Louis XIV used the book as 'his favorite nightcap'; an annotated copy was found in Napoleon Bonaparte's coach at Waterloo."Machiavelli (1469-1527) is known as the father of modern political theory. Born in Florence, he was a diplomat for 14 years in Italy's Florentine Republic during the Medici family's exile when the city was run by Girolamo Savonarola, a Dominican friar. No official records of Machiavelli's life appear until 1498, immediately after the fall of Savonarola's government, when he would have been 29. The Florentine Republic had been reinstated, and Machiavelli was appointed as secretary of the Second Chancery, a position in which he coordinated relations with Florence's territorial possessions. As the "Florentine secretary," he had opportunities to meet and observe many of the major political figures of the period. When the Medici family returned to power in 1512, Machiavelli was dismissed and briefly jailed. II. First edition of a little known political work. Written in the form of a dialogue in twenty-five inquiries (Consultationes), in which Vanitas (Vanity) and Veritas (Truth) discuss issues concernin

        Costelyk medicijn boek voor alderhande gebreeke des mense lighaam. [Zeeland?, ca. 1700]. 4to. Manuscript medicine book in Dutch, written in dark brown ink on paper in a Latin hand, with close to a thousand medicinal recipes and medical instructions. With 17 engraved prints pasted on the endleaves, some signed by the publishers Barent Velthuysen or (Dancker?) Dancker(t)s, including Bible illustrations, Ajax and Ulysses, and two elegant ladies (one standing and one dancing). There are also several pieces of an engraved decorative border. Contemporary vellum.

      A very extensive manuscript medicine book, containing nearly a thousand recipes for medicines and medical instructions for household use. They include syrups, pills, powders, waters, salves, oils and other medicaments for both internal and external use against everything from bad breath, worms, burns and wounds to epilepsy, rabies, plague and scurvy. It also gives instructions for removing splinters and bullets, interpreting urine (pp. 336-340) and other medical care, including help for pregnant women, childbirth and children. Most of the recipes use common herbs, honey, wine and other ingredients readily available to all, but some include items that were not indigenous, such as cinnamon and tobacco (p. 301), as well as antimony (quite dangerous if the dose is too high), one uses pearls, coral and crabs' eyes (p. 207) and another even scrapings from pieces of elephants' tusks.The anonymous author gives several clues to his identity. He notes that he practiced his art for many years in the cities of Aardenburg, Sluis and the surrounding villages and countryside (in southwestern Zeeland). The book contains a 19-page alphabetical index, but 28 pages of additional recipes have been added following it, presumably after the rest was written, and a few slips with additional recipes or notes have been loosely inserted, some near contemporary, others perhaps a century later.The leaf before p. 1 (with the drop-title on its verso) and 3 of the last text leaves are detached or nearly detached, as are several of the endleaves with engravings, but the manuscript is otherwise in good condition. Some of the endleaves are tattered at the edges and some of the engravings show bits of white chalk(?). The binding is slightly soiled, its sewing somewhat loose and the cloth ties tattered. An extensive and interesting recipe book for household medical care.

      Kopergravure uitgegeven door Pieter Schenk te Amsterdam ca. 1700. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 48 x 57 cm.We zien de sterren van het noordelijk- en zuidelijk halfrond afgebeeld als allegorische figuren, dieren en wetenschappelijke instrumenten. De stijl van de sterrenbeelden volgt het Firmamentum Sobiescianum sive Uranographia uit 1687 van de Poolse astronoom Johannes Hevelius. Het ontwerp van de kaart was gebaseerd op werk van de Nurembergse astronoom Georg Christoph Eimmart (1638-1705).Behalve de halfronden zien we zes diagrammen tegen een achtergrond van wolken. Van links boven naar rechts onder zien we astronomische modellen van Tycho Brahe en Ptolemaeus, een model dat de getijden door de beweging van de maan weergeeft, een schema van de verlichting van de maan door de zon, een astronomisch model van Copernicus en een model van Lansbergen over de beweging van de aarde om de zon.Prijs: ?3.150,- (incl. lijst).

      - altkolorierter u. vergrößerter Kupferstich v. Anna Beek n. Merian b. Anna Beek, um 1700, 39 x 38 (H) Zu Anna Beek siehe Wurzbach, Niederl. Künstler, I,68. - Im Auftrag des niederländischen Statthalters und englischen Königs Wilhelm III von Oranien-Nassau kolorierte und "vergrößerte" Anna Beek (1657-1717) eine Reihe von Ansichten, in dem sie das Originalblatt auseinander schnitt, auf größerem Papier - mit Zwischenraum - montierte und dann mit ihren bekannten, kräftigen (leuchtenden) Farben kolorierte. Sie verwandte Ansichten von Braun-Hogenberg, Janssonius oder Merian ( wie hier ), die dann nach der Kolorierung zu einem großen Ansichtenwerk zusammengebunden wurden. Die Qualität des Kolorits ist in etwa vergleichbar mit dem legendären Kolorit des van Santen aus dem Atlas van der Hem. Der Atlas Wilhelm des III. wurde um 1950 aufgelöst und die Ansichten kamen zum Verkauf. Diese Ansicht ist somit einmalig, ein Unikat! Tadellos erhalten !.
