         Descriptio Fluminum Galliae qua Francia est.

      Parisiis, apud Iacobum Quesnel, 1518 (i.e. 1618). - in-8. 5ff. portrait hors-texte. 684pp. (i.e. 686). (1f.blanc). 11ff. (1f.blanc). Plein vélin de l'époque. Edition Originale de cette importante description des cours d'eau français, composée par le célèbre historien français Jean Papire Masson (1544-1611) et publiée après sa mort par son frère Jean. "L'auteur ne se borne pas à décrire sèchement le cours des principales rivières (la Loire, la Seine, le Rhône, la Garonne); il étudie en même temps les contrées que celles-ci traversent et les peuples riverains" (Bourgeois et André). "Masson fut un des savants hommes du XVIe siècle qui se sont occupés avec le plus d'ardeur des origines de notre histoire nationale, et qui ont ouvert la voie si glorieusement suivie par les bénédictins. Ses ouvrages, qui roulent presque tous sur la Gaule, sont très recherchés" (Larousse). Belle marque d'imprimeur sur la page de titre, et beau portrait hors-texte de l'auteur gravé par Gaultier. Quelques rousseurs. [Attributes: First Edition]

         Bavaria Ducatus

      Artist: Blaeu Willem Janszoon ca ; issued in: Amsterdam; date: ca1618 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 39 x 51; - description: Map shows total Bavaria; - vita of the artist: Joan Guilliemus Blaeu was the eldest son of Willem Janszoon Blaeu (1571-1638), and was probably born in Alkmaar in the province of Noord-Holland in the final years of the 16th century. He was brought up in Amsterdam, and studied law at the University of Leiden before going into partnership with his father in the 1630s. Although his father Willem had cartographic interests, having studied under the Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe and having manufactured globes and instruments, his primary business was as a printer. It was under the control of Joan that the Blaeu printing press achieved lasting fame by moving towards the printing of maps and expanding to become the largest printing press in Europe in the 17th century.By the 1660s the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum (or Atlas Maior as it had became known by this time) had expanded to between 9 and 12 volumes, depending on the language. With over 3,000 text pages and approximately 600 maps, it was the most expensive book money could buy in the later 17th century. The translation of the text from Latin into Dutch, English, German, French, and Spanish for several volumes created enormous work for those involved in typography and letterpress activities. It is estimated that over 80 men must have been employed full-time in the Blaeu printing house in Bloemgracht, not including engravers who worked elsewhere, with over 15 printing presses running simultaneously, and in 1667 a second press was acquired at Gravenstraat. At the same time as producing the Atlas Maior, Blaeu was also publishing town plans of Italy, maps for globes, and other volumes. At its peak the Blaeu press managed to produce over 1 million impressions from 1,000 copper plates within four years.

         Universalis Tabula Iuxta Ptolemæum.

      1618 - Amsterdam: Jodocus Hondius Jnr, 1618. Fine original colour. 350 x 490mm with good margins. A map of the world according to Claudius Ptolemy of Alexandria, showing the world as known to the ancients, with the semi-mythical island of Taprobana but no America or Cape of Good Hope. However Mercator has dropped the land-locked Indian Ocean shown on earlier Ptolemaic maps. The map was engraved by Mercator himself for his 1578 edition of Ptolemy's 'Geography'; however this example comes from an edition of Petrus Bertius's 'Theatrum geographiae veteris'. The flamboyance of the strapwork-and-windhead borders makes this map the most decorative of the Ptolemaic world maps. SHIRLEY: World 139, plate 118, 'His general Ptolemaic map is one of the finest available. elegantly engraved'.

         Oorspronck ende voortganck der Nederlantsche kerckelijcke verschillen tot op 't Nationale Synodus van Dordrecht.Amsterdam, Cornelis de Leeuw, 1648. 2 parts in 1 volume. Small folio (28.5 x 19.5 cm). 18th-century half vellum.

      Knuttel, Kerkgeschiedenis, p. 242; Rogge, Remonstr. geschr., p. 96; STCN (2 copies). Very rare re-issue, enlarged with an index and several documents, of a history of the Dutch religious controversies that arose during the Seven Years Truce. The work includes an almost verbatim report by Bernard Dwingelo of the acts of the Synod of Dordrecht (1618-1619), which ended with the official condemnation and banishment of one of the two parties, the Arminians or Remonstrants. The main issue had been the Calvinist article of faith regarding the issue of predestination, which was rejected by the Leiden theologian Jacob Arminius (1560-1609). Arminius's more liberal views were opposed by his strict Calvanist colleague Franciscus Gomarus (1563-1641).Title-page slight browned and thumbed, boards rubbed along the extremities. Overall in very good condition.

Contemporary sheepskin parchment.

      - Klaversma & Hannema 1179-1180; STCN (1 copy, lacking frontispiece). Wellcome IV, p. 365; WorldCat (5 copies). First and only edition of a Dutch translation of the London Pharmacopoeia, which had appeared in dozens of Latin (beginning in 1618) and English (beginning in 1649) editions. Although a slightly revised Latin edition had appeared in 1677, the Dutch publisher Ten Hoorn apparently based his translation on the 1650 edition, so that his readers miss out on the recipe for Irish whiskey. It nevertheless contains much interesting information for Dutch readers. Among the many ingredients used in the recipes were the wonderful horn of a unicorn, the skull of a man killed by violence (translated as "the skull of a man who died in good health"), twelve types of excrement (for which the Dutch translator used five different words) and fresh cheese (pp. 26-28). A list of other medical titles printed and sold by the publisher appears on the final pages.With a bookplate. Binding soiled and spotted, text with some spots and a few small holes; lacking front endpapers. A good copy of a rare pharmacopoeia.

         Fuggerorum et Fuggerarum, quae in familia natae, quaève in familiam transierunt, quot extant aere expressae imagines

      Augsburg, Andreas Aperger, 1618. A collection of portraits of members of the mercantile and banking dynasty founded by Jakob Fugger (circa 1430-1518), each portrait accompanied by appropriate heraldic insignia, and displayed within an architectural or grotesque frame of impressive quality and size (platemarks 340 × 230 mm). On the versos of the portraits are printed brief genealogical notices apparently supplied by Marcus Henning (1561-circa 1622). The book has been long recognised as a valuable document for the history of costume, especially for women's clothing. Indeed, its most striking feature is the high proportion of women portrayed: nearly half of the portraits in this edition (sixty-two of 127) depict women, the wives and daughters of the Fuggers in nearly equal number.Custos, Dominicus Antwerp 1559/1560 - 1615 Augsburg Fuggerorum et Fuggerarum, quae in familia natae, quaève in familiam tran­sierunt, quot extant aere expressae imagines.

He was soon employed by Philipp Eduard, Octavianus Secundus, and Anton Fugger on a project to engrave their family's portraits, and by 1592 he had completed sixty or more prints. 4 A small selection of these (ten portraits, including those of Custos's three patrons) was issued in 1592, in quarto format, as I cones decem illustr. Baronum et Fuggarorum gente qui Domicilia Augustae Vindelic. constituta habent.5In 1593 appeared the first edition of Fuggerorum et Fuggerarum quae in familia natae... Imagines, a folio presenting seventy-one portraits, each imposed within an engraved frame appropriate to the sitter's rank and sex (eleven different frames were designed). 6 After Custos's death (1616 or 1617), Lukas and Wolfgang Kilian brought the work up-to-date, adding to the end of the series portraits of Margareta Fugger-Caretto (1592-1652) and other members of the family who had been born (or reached maturity) since 1593, and interpolating portraits of Ulrich Fugger (1441-1510), Sigmund Friedrich Fugger (1542-1600), and others of whom models had just become available. Altogether, the new edition presents 127 portraits. Sixty-two portraits, eleven designs of frames, and the alle­gorical title-page, are printed from plates attributable to Custos. Lukas, the more talented of Dominicus' stepsons, engraved twenty-nine portraits and one new frame; his younger brother, Wolfgang, contributed thirty-six por­traits, three frames, and the large print of the Fugger coat-of-arms placed at the beginning of the volume. 7 A local draughtsman, Johann Mathias Kager (1575-1634), city painter of Augsburg after 1615, was designer of the four frames engraved by the two Kilians. 8 Unlike the 1593 edition, which seems to have been limited and distributed by the family, the 1618 edi­tion was a commercial undertaking by the newly-established publisher Andreas Aperger. [img-2523-left-large_default] Fig. 2 Jakob 'der Reiche' (1459-1525), engraved portrait and frame by Dominicus Custos (pl. 4; page height 430 mm) [img-2524-left-large_default] Fig. 3 Ursula von Harrach (1522-1554), wife of Johann Jakob Fugger (1516-1575), engraved portrait and frame by Dominicus Custos (pl. 13; page height 430 mm) [img-2525-left-large_default] Fig. 4 Hieronymus Fugger (1584-1633), engraved portrait by Lukas Kilian within a frame designed by Johann Mathias Kager (pl. 112; page height 430 mm) Many of Custos's matrices (both portraits and frames) were extensively reworked by Lukas and Wolfgang Kilian for the new edition. Backgrounds were strengthened with cross-hatching and shading, and the portraits occasionally were updated. 9 The original portrait of Raymund Fugger (1489-1535), for example, depicts him as a young man (1593 edition, pl. 8); the Kilians added a beard to convey the appearance of old age (1618, pl. 8). 10 Hans Jakob Fugger (1516-1575) likewise was transformed from a middle-aged (1593, pl. 12) to an old man (1618, pl. 12). 11 Custos's portrait of Helena Fugger-Madruzzo (1593, pl. 59), who had married Georg Fugger (1560-1634) in 1583 and by 1611 borne him twenty-one children, was replaced by an entirely new portrait engraved by Wolfgang Kilian, which depicts her in old age (1618, pl. 86). Custos's portrait of the celebrated entrepreneur Hans Fugger (1531-1598) also was replaced by a new one, en­graved by Lukas Kilian, a close copy except in one detail: in the original, the subject is depicted with a notebook in his right hand (1593, pl. 23); in the substitute, the book rests on the table top (1618, pl. 74). Several of Custos's portraits were excluded from the new edition, among them one of Anna Jacobäa Fugger (1593, pl. 47), who in 1582 had brought scandal upon the family when she fled the Dominican convent St. Katharina in Augsburg, converted, and afterwards married the Protestant Heinrich vii Graf zu Ortenburg; 12 and the portrait of Barbara Fugger-Bäsinger, wife of Jakob Fugger (1398-1469) (1593, pl. 3). 13 The book has been long recognised as a valuable document for the history of costume, especially for women's clothing. 14 Indeed, its most striking feature is the high proportion of women portrayed: nearly half of the portraits in the 1618 edition (sixty-two of 127) depict women, the wives and daughters of the Fuggers in almost equal number. Some illustrious male members of the Fugger dynasty are unaccountably omitted. In their stead appear women - some, like Ursula Fugger-Lichtenstein (pl. 16), the patroness of the Society of Jesus in Augsburg, had attained celebrity; 15 but others are obscure, and had no progeny, such as the Benedictine nun Maria Fugger (pl. 69). 16 Perhaps the three instigators of the project choose the subjects, or the choice may have depended on the availability of authen­tic models for the engravers to copy. 17 The matrices of the portraits were restruck (without the engraved frames) at Augsburg in 1620 for an edition with German text, published by Sara Mang, under the title Contrafahe der Herren Fugger und Frawen Fuggerinnen. Another edition, also without the engraved frames, but restituting to the series the portraits of Anna Jacobäa and Barbara Fugger, and others, was printed at Ulm in 1754, as Pinacotheca Fuggerorum. references Désiré Guilmard, Les maîtres ornemanistes (Paris 1880-1881), p.393 no. 10; F.W.H.

      Contemporary full calf leather, remains of gilt ornaments on the spine. Edges and corners worn. Else a good copy of the rare and only edition of this fable book by Pieter de la Court the younger. With hand coloured title page. 16,5 x 21 cm, [20] 1-727 [1] pp. With engraved title page and 100 engraved emblems by J. Gole. Pieter de la Court (1618-1685) was an outspoken character in the Dutch political scene of the seventeenth century. As a follower of Johan de Wit (1625-1672), de la Court became unpopular when the republican experiment backfired. Sinryke Fabulen was a great opportunity for him to carry out his political ideas disguised as fables. This book is a beautiful example of the synergy between fable literature and Dutch emblematic structure. The stories each contain a picture, a Latin motto and a moral explanation. Other copies available: Sinryke Fabulen. Amsterdam, Hieronymus Sweerts, 1685. (Title page not coloured) Code: 24.718 (B0075) € 900,-

         Globus Coelestris. Auctore Iudoco Hondio A°. 1616

      [Jodocus Hondius Jnr., Amsterdam, 1618] - Copper engraved 92 x 135 mm A beautiful and finely engraved miniature celestial map in two hemispheres, published by the younger Hondius for Petrus Bertius' Tabularum geographicarum contractarum libri septem. The hemispheres depict numerous personifications of the constellations, each labelled with its Latin title. All of the signs of the zodiac are represented, along with other major star-groups, including Ursa Major, Bootes, Cygnus, Andromeda, Cetus, Orion, Canis Major, and Centaurus. The spheres are both divided into twelve sections, each governed by a particular zodiacal sign, the symbols for which appear in the borders of each hemisphere. The spaces around the outside of the spheres are decorated in elaborate strap-work, and a secondary title above the plate mark reads 'De Sphaera Caelesti,' illustrating its use in a section of the atlas 'concerning the celestial spheres.' The latin text on the verso describes classical perceptions of the heavens and earth, with particular reference to the writing of Aelius Gallus, Varro, Ennius, Plato, Aristotle, and the influence of ancient Egyptian and Chaldaean philosophy and astrology. The majority of the plates for Petrus Bertius' Tabularum geographicarum contractarum libri septem were reduced versions of those published in the Mercator-Hondius Atlas Minor. The first edition, published by Cornelis Claes, was published in Amsterdam in 1600, using a suite of miniature maps first published in the Caert-Thresoor by Barent Langenes. Over the next fifty years, the Bertius atlas was issued numerous times in Latin, French, and German, its collection of maps continually increasing with new plates, the majority of which were engraved by Bertius' brothers-in-law Jodocus Hondius and van den Keere. Hondius the Younger's first issue of the Bertius atlas, published in 1616, was an immediate commercial success, and the second edition appeared later the same year. Petrus Bertius (14th November 1565 â€" 13th October 1629) was a Flemish theologian, historian, geographer and cartographer and was related to Jodocus Hondius Sr. and Pieter van den Keere by marriage. Bertius studied at the University of Leiden and later traveled in Germany and Russia. In 1620 he emigrated to France where he was appointed as a cosmographer to the court Louis XIII. Bertius published a number of folio maps, but never published an atlas of his own. His maps were either separately published or included in atlases and books by other publishers. Jodocus Hondius (14th October 1563 - 12th February 1612) was a Dutch Flemish cartographer, engraver, and publisher. Hondius is most famous for reviving the primacy of the work of Gerard Mercator, through the publication of his Atlas, and the smaller Atlas Minor, in the early seventeenth century, at a time when cartography was largely dominated by Ortelius' Theatrum Orbis Terrarum. The Mercator-Hondius Atlas was composed of maps pulled from plates Hondius had purchased from Mercator's grandson, as well as thirty-six new plates Hondius commissioned, and in many cases engraved, himself. He is also believed to have been the chief engraver of the plates for John Speed's Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine. Following his death, he was succeeded by his sons, Jodocus the Younger and Henricus, as well as his son in law Jan Jansson. Condition: Excellent crisp impression. Minor waterstain to bottom margin of sheet, not affecting image. Framed in antique style frame. [Attributes: First Edition]

This task was completed in 1637 and a contemp. print of the occasion is inserted with the Bible. Just as the 'Luther Bible' as well as the 'King James Bible' had a major influence on both the literature and art of both Germany and England, so the 'Statenbijbel' as this became known, had a major effect on the Dutch poets, writers and culture in Holland with artists such as Rembrandt being inspired by biblical motives.
