         A Discourse of Trade from England unto the East-Indies: answering the diverse objections which are usually made against the same [bound with other works]

      London: Nicholas Okes for John Pyper 1621 - FIRST EDITION. Mun served on the board of the East India Company from 1615 until his death in 1641. This is his first publication. In the Discourse on Trade (1621), Mun defends the company against charges of depleting England’s bullion stock—and thus its wealth—by sending it to the East Indies in exchange for goods. Mun, also known for England’s Treasure by Foreign Trade, published in 1664, years after his death, was the leading theorist of mercantilism. In the Discourse, Mun argued that the temporary export of gold and silver resulted in a net expansion of wealth through the growth of international trade. In Mun’s view, the trading universe was essentially a coherent and mutually supporting community. Too much frugality at home would restrict foreign purchases of English good, he warned, for if the English did not use foreign goods, foreigners would not have the wherewithal to buy English ones and there would be no sale abroad. . . [Mun presents a] succinct and compelling explanation of the dynamics of growth through commercial expansion” (Appleby, Economic Thought and Ideology in 17th-Century England). VERY RARE. No copies appear in the auction records since 1979. This is one of a handful of copies to appear for sale in this century. Mun’s Discourse is bound with 3 other rare 17th-century tracts on trade: “the earliest example of corporation publicity” WHEELER, JOHN. A Treatise of Commerce wherein are shewed the commodities arising by a well ordered and ruled trade, such as that of the Societie of Merchants Adventurers is proved to be. London: John Harrison, 1601. Wheeler’s Treatise of Commerce is “the earliest example of corporation publicity” and “an important milestone in the development of marketing. It represents the characteristically medieval theory of the trade monopoly, bolstered by monarchical authority and jealously guarded against competition” (Hotchkiss). This is the second edition, preceded by the even more rare Middleburgh edition of the same year. Wheeler was secretary to the Company of Merchant Adventurers, which controlled the trade of cloth between England and the continent. This book is a response to the Privy Council’s granting of trade privileges to the Company’s rival Hanseatic League cities of Hamburg and Stade. Wheeler argues for the superiority of the Company over unorganized traders, extolling the Company’s beneficial effects such as increasing exports, cheapening imports, and raising customs revenue. HANDBOOK FOR TRADERS [BROWNE, JOHN.] The Merchants Avizo, or instructions very necessary for their sonnes and servants, when they first send them beyond the sea, as to Spaine, and Portugale, and other countries. Written by a wel-willer to youth, I.B. merchant in Bristoll. London: Richard Whitaker, 1640. The Merchants Avizo, first published in 1589, provides information about Spanish, Portuguese, and French weights, measures, and money, as well as commodities including pepper, cloves, cinnamon, sugar, oils, and wine. THE WEST INDIES TRADE DALBY, THOMAS. An Historical Account of the Rise and Growth of the West-India Collonies and of the great advantages they are to England, in respect to trade. London: Joseph Hindmarsh, 1690. FIRST EDITION. Merchant Sir Thomas Dalby published his Historical Account after a failed attempt to repeal the new sugar duty with threatened the West Indies trade. Dalby advocates the creation of a common factory and bank of credit to facilitate the trade. 18th-century calf. Fine condition., The 17th-century economics tracts that survive in private hands have almost invariably been broken out of volumes like this and rebound. This exceptional collection, including Mun’s celebrated Discourse on Trade and other important early economics and trade texts, is a rare survival. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Edition originale de cette pièce burlesque bien dans le genre de Tabarin : ses "troubles et divisions" n'ont rien de politique, en cette année pourtant riche en événements, mais concernent le quotidien du Parisien : détrousseurs de passants, filles débauchées, et surtout, comme il est exposé à la fin "C'est avec les femmes qu'il faudra principalement que j'en aye. Ie leur ferai cognoistre qu'elles s'emportent trop à la curiosité de mettre le nez partout". SHF, Bourgeois & André, 2560. Cioranescu, XVII, 63933. [Attributes: First Edition]

         DE RE METALLICA. LIBRI XII. QUIBUS OFFICIA, INSTRUMENTA, MACHINAE, AC OMNIA DENIQUE AD METALLICAM SPECTANTIA.

      Ludovici Regis, Basil 1621 - Folio (8" x 12-1/2") bound in library buckram; irregularly paginated: [10], 502, [58] pages. Illustrated with 273 woodcuts, many full and half page, some signed with the monogram "RMD," and generally attributed to Hans Rudolf Manuel Deutsch (fl.1525-1572) or, less commonly, Blasius Weffring. Previously published in 1556 and 1561, this edition seems scarcer than either of the previous. PRINTING & THE MIND OF MAN 79: "The first systematic treatise on mining and metallurgy and one of the first technological books of modern times." Herbert Hoover, who first translated this book into English, described this title in his autobiography as "the first important attempt to assemble systematically in print the world-knowledge on mining, metallurgy, and industrial chemistry. It was the great textbook of those industries for two centuries and had dominated thought and practice all that time. In many mining regions and camps, including the Spanish South America, it was chained to the church altar and translated by the priest to the miners between religious services." The book combines a profound technical and financial knowledge of mining with an underlying interest in the health and daily routine of mine workers. The woodcut impressions are strong and dark. As customary with this title, there is browning throughout, occasionally heavy. Small piece of title page repaired with no loss of text or illustration; ink names of David Stuart dated 1771 and Joseph Robertson dated 1830 on title page. Library bookplate on front pastedown and small ink number on the title page illustration; no other library markings except for numbers on the spine. An important and richly illustrated title. Very Good in a serviceable binding [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

         Fabelen van J. De la Fontaine in Nederduitsche vaerzen. (set of 4), Amsterdam, Johannes Allart, 1805.

      Set of four hardcovers with leather spines and paper covered boards. The spines are divided in six shields of which the second shield shows the gilded title on a red background and the fourth the volume. The mock ribs are decorated with a gilded pattern. Each volume contains an ex libris (Dr. O.H. Dijkstra). The spines of volume two and four are slightly loose at the top. The corners of all the books are a bit worn. Overall the books are in good condition (no foxing). Rare edition. 13 x 21 cm, vol. 1. [4] 1-208 pp., vol. 2. [4] 209-450 pp., vol. 3. [4] 451-676 pp., vol. 4. [4] 677-916 pp. The books are illustrated and engraved by J. Punt and Vinkeles (each story is accompanied by an engraving).The French author Jean de La Fontaine (1621-1695) was one of the most influential fable writers of all time. Although his stories are loosely based on the work of old masters like Aesopus and Phaedrus, they were of such quality that they became immensely popular. De la Fontaine belonged to the so called Classicists, which meant that he took his inspiration from Greek and Roman antiquity. These views made him an opponent of Charles Perrault (1628-1703), the other famous story writer of the time, who thought that modern literature was superior to that of the olden days. The illustrations of Jan Punt (1711-1779) and Reinier Vinkeles (1741-1816) are a beautiful replenishment to the text of La Fontaine. Vinkeles, who was the student of Punt, outshined his master later in life with his close to nature engravings.

Perfecto estado.- // Proc.: Sin datos.- // Refs.: Bianchi, II, p. 357; Graesse, VI-I, p. 272.- // La disputa entre la República de Venecia y el Papa a principios del siglo XVI, encumbrada cuando desde Roma se trató de zafar de su enjuiciamiento criminal a dos sacerdotes delincuentes en Venecia intentando hacer valer su exclusividad penal sobre las 'personas de la Iglesia' tal como se había decretado en el Concilio de Trento, fue una de las que más expectación generó en toda Europa. El motivo, que la república veneciana era el único 'estado' en la península itálica que se oponía ostensiblemente al ejercicio por la curia romana del poder temporal del Papa, lo que resultaba del mayor interés tanto en la 'cismática Inglaterra' como en los medios así galicanos como hugonotes franceses, entre los reformistas ginebrinos y en las diferentes confesiones alemanas. Y quien acabó erigido como paladín de esta disputa contra Roma fue Paolo Sarpi, a quien acudieron durante los siguientes quince años enviados de todos aquellos entornos. Uno de los ejes intelectuales sobre los que Sarpi centró la disputa no era de tipo teológico, sino político. Y uno de sus argumentos se centraba en que el Concilio de Trento tuvo un carácter tan fuerte de lucha por el poder en la curia, que el debate teológico se supeditó a su conquista, con lo que la verdad religiosa de los decretos acordados quedaba en entredicho. Este enfoque sobre el desarrollo del Concilio de Trento, del que daba cuenta a quienes se reunían con él, provocó una atención especial entre los anglicanos, quienes le persuadieron de que escribiese esa Historia y se pusieron a su disposición para publicarla. El resultado de tal interés fue la aparición en Londres, en 1619, escondida bajo el anagrama de Pietro Soave Polano, de la 'Historia del concilio tridentino, nella quale si scoprono tutti gli artifici della Corte di Roma'(1). El éxito de la obra fue fulgurante. A la primigenia edición londinese en italiano siguieron, solo en los dos años siguientes, en 1620, nuevas ediciones londinenses con sus traducciones al inglés(2) y al latín(3), y la traducción al alemán -impresa en Francfort-(4), seguidas, en 1621, de nuevas impresiones de la traducciones latina -esta que ofrecemos- y alemana -impresas ambas también en Francfort-, y de las primeras ediciones en francés -impresa en Genève, traducida en este caso desde el italiano por Giovanni Diodati(5), el teólogo calvinista que había hecho la primera traducción de la Biblia completa al italiano unos años antes (ver nuestra ref. C-1001)-, y en holandés, impresa esta última en La Haya(6).- // (1) Un buen resumen de las vicisitudes de esta Historia hasta su publicación en Inglaterra, que ahorra muchas lecturas, en Francesca Balliana: L'anticlassicismo sarpiano nella prosa letteraria del primo Seicento.- Tesis doctoral.- Università degli Studi di Padova, 2016, pp. 7-30.- (2) Pietro Soave Polano: The historie of the Councel of Trent : Conteining eight bookes.

         Fabelen van J. De la Fontaine in Nederduitsche vaerzen. (set of 4), Amsterdam, Johannes Allart, 1805.

      Set of four hardcovers with leather spines and paper covered boards. The spines are divided in six shields of which the second shield shows the gilded title on a red background and the fourth the volume. The mock ribs are decorated with a gilded pattern. Each volume contains an ex libris (Dr. O.H. Dijkstra). The spines of volume two and four are slightly loose at the top. The corners of all the books are a bit worn. Overall the books are in good condition (no foxing). Rare edition. 13 x 21 cm, vol. 1. [4] 1-208 pp., vol. 2. [4] 209-450 pp., vol. 3. [4] 451-676 pp., vol. 4. [4] 677-916 pp. The books are illustrated and engraved by J. Punt and Vinkeles (each story is accompanied by an engraving). The French author Jean de La Fontaine (1621-1695) was one of the most influential fable writers of all time. Although his stories are loosely based on the work of old masters like Aesopus and Phaedrus, they were of such quality that they became immensely popular. De la Fontaine belonged to the so called Classicists, which meant that he took his inspiration from Greek and Roman antiquity. These views made him an opponent of Charles Perrault (1628-1703), the other famous story writer of the time, who thought that modern literature was superior to that of the olden days. The illustrations of Jan Punt (1711-1779) and Reinier Vinkeles (1741-1816) are a beautiful replenishment to the text of La Fontaine. Vinkeles, who was the student of Punt, outshined his master later in life with his close to nature engravings.

         Il Trinciante [bound with] Lo Scalco.

      Padua: Martini Stampator Camerale/ Guasparri Crivellari. 1621/1623. Small oblong quarto. Twentieth century wood-patterned boards; pp. 18, 28 plates illustrating methods of carving meat with manuscript additions, missing folding plate of carving utensils; pp. 46, missing all 3 plates; very good. First editions. Significant because it contains the first printings of two parts of what became Giegher's Tre Trattati (1629). The third part, on napkin folding, was never printed individually. Il Trinciato deals with the art of carving meant, while Lo Scalco (The Steward) concerns service; the three parts together became one of the most important guides to the serving of meals in the best houses, and the carving illustrations are both fascinating and appealing. Mattia Giegher (c.1589 - c. 1639, born Matthias Jager in Moosburg, Bavaria) moved to Italy in around 1616 and was so famed for his mastery of the arts of hospitality that he lectured on the subject at the University of Padua. Banqueting was an important facet of European diplomacy and it was of more than domestic importance that the niceties were performed correctly. Tre Trattati itself is a very rare work, only 17 copies being recorded on Worldcat; it records 2 copies of Lo Scalco, and none of Il Trinciato. Although sadly lacking some plates, this is an item of utmost scarcity.

         Waarachtige en aen-merkens-waardige historie van Lapland: ... Met noch een kort bericht van den toestand der Finnen. Amsterdam, Jan ten Hoorn, 1682. 4to. With engraved frontispiece and 16 engraved plates by Jan Luyken, and 1 folding engraved map. Contemporary vellum.

      Alden & Landis 682/155; Klaversma & Hannema 1282 and 1283; cf. Cox I, p. 178. First edition of the Dutch translation of a celebrated ethnographic monograph on Swedish Lapland by the German-born professor Johannes Gerhard Scheffer (1621-1679). Scheffer's account contains valuable information on the Lappish culture, with chapters on their ceremonies, houses, diet, clothing, trading customs, handicraft, entertainment, hunting, as well as marriage and death customs. "This history long remained the main source of information on Lapland" (Cox). It has become the liveliest, detailed and uncondescending early modern account of the far north and its population, now known as the Sami. The present Dutch edition was illustrated by the engraver Jan Luyken, one of the most famous illustrators of the Netherlands during the second half of the 17th century. The plates depict the daily life in the north, but also the worship of various idols, encounters with gnomes, etc.Some plates with minor restorations, some occasional foxing and a few small marginal water stains on the last few leaves. Front cover slightly damaged. A very good copy.

Henry Ainsworth (1571-1622 or 1623), leader of the separatist congregation at Amsterdam, and controversialist, a fine type of the Elizabethan puritan-learned, sincere, earnest, and uncompromising. At first a Puritan, Ainsworth joined the Separatists who broke entirely with the Church of England. Driven abroad in the persecution of 1593, settled in Amsterdam. He attached himself to those who were styled 'Brownists,' who, under the name of 'Independents,' afterwards played so important a part in English history, and who were the ancestors of the 'Congregationalists' and other free churches of the present time. He and Francis Johnson founded an an independent church in Amsterdam. A falling out between the two created two separate congregations, whom they styled respectively Franciscan Brownists and Ainsworthian Brownists. Ainsworth is among the authors whose work traveled to New England in 1620 with the Pilgrims.

         Spieghel der eyghen-kennisse, ... in-gheknoopt Het conterfeytsel des wereldts, ...Brussels, Lambert de Grieck, 1643. 4to. With engraved title-page, engraved portrait of the author (after P. de Backer), both by Antoine van der Does ("AVD"), and 3 nearly full-page engraved illustrations in the text, probably by Van der Does. 18th-century vellum.

      Bibl. Belg I, p. 319; BCNI 9630; Funck, pp. 282-283; STCV (8 copies incl. 4 incomplete). First edition, in Flemish Dutch, of a didactic satire, mostly in verse, by the Flemish poet and lawyer Willem van der Borcht or Guilelmus a Castro (1621/22-1668) in Brussels, with elegies and epigrams alternating with prose passages. It allegorically presents a mirror of self-knowledge and knowledge of the world, intended to improve the faults of the age and show the foolishness and vanity of the world. The fine plates by Antoine van der Does, showing scenes of rich and frivolous society, are of interest for the costume and morals of the time. The "Toe-ghifte", an integral part of the edition, but with its own title-page on 2D1, represents the world as a capricious woman. The portrait shows Van der Borcht at age 21 with the motto "nosce te ipsum", and a 2-line verse by Ericus Puteanus below. The 3 illustrations show realistic genre scenes, influenced by Rubens. Half the copies listed by the STCV lack the portrait and/or the engraved title-page. One illustration was printed over a crease in the paper, leaving a white line through part of the scene. In very good condition, with a minor water stain in the head margin of the engraved title, just touching its border. Binding lacking ties, with 1 sewing support broken at the back hinge, slightly wrinkled and a bit dirty, but still good. First edition of a satire of society, with plates made for it by Antoine van der Does.

Both pastedowns detached) (Note: The Dutch classical scholar of Flemish origin Daniel Heinsius, 1580-1655, who enjoyed international fame as an editor of classical texts, theorist of literary criticism, historian and neolatin poet, was professor of Poetics at the University of Leiden since 1603, extraordinarius Greek since 1605. After the death of J. Scaliger, to whose inner circle he belonged, he held the chair of Greek, from 1609 till 1647. He is best known for his edition of Aristotle's treatise on poetry (1611), which he studied in connexion with the 'Ars Poetica' of Horace. This edition is 'the only considerable contribution to the criticism and eludication of the work that was ever produced in the Netherlands. (.) In his pamphlet 'De tragoediae Constitutione', published in the same year (1611), he deals with all the essential points in Aristotle's treatise, giving proof that he has thoroughly imbided the author's spirit. (.) It was through this work that he became a centre of Aristotelian influence in Holland. His influence extended, in France, to Chaplain, and Balzac, to Racine and Corneille; in Germany to Opitz; and in England to Ben Jonson (.)'. (J.E. Sandys, 'A history of classical scholship, N.Y., 1964, vol. 2, p. 314) Heinsius was a representative of the great age of Neo-Latin in the Low Countries, which encompasses the 16th century, and a good part of the 17th century. Here the Anacreontic-Petrarcan love poetry in Latin was kept alive. (J. IJsewijn, 'Companion to Neo-Latin studies', vol. 1, Leuven 1990, p. 154). The first part of this collection of Heinsius' poetry opens with early work, the 3 books of Sylvae, followed by Hipponax, 3 books of Elegiae, and Monobiblos. Then Heinsius' Epigrams and some occasional poetry; 125 pages with Greek poems, inspired by Theocritus and the Anthologia Graeca. The part with Greek poems starts with 'Peplus' (Gown), a series of epigrams which Heinsius composed on Greek authors and philosophers. This part is followed by 40 p. of Greek poetry in Latin translation, 'Elegiarum iuvenilium reliquiae', and is concluded with the 'Liber adoptivus'. The second volume contains Heinsius' last long Latin poem 'De contemptu mortis' (1621). It is a didactic poem, the finest of its time, in 4 books, wherein arguments, Platonic, Stoic and Christian, are set forth which explain why man should not fear death) (Collation: Pagination sometimes confusing. *4, A-2G8 (Gathering P begins with p. 223, in stead of 225, i.e. doubling p. 223 & 224; gathering Q begins with 237 in stead of 239, i.e. doubling 237 & 238 dubbel). +4, A-L8, M4 (In gathering I the pagination 129 & 130 is skipped) (Photographs on request) 1000 gr

         Manuscript document, unsigned. On paper, in Spanish.

      Peñafiel, Spain, 1621. Folio (31 cm; 12.25"). 15 ff.. Detailed here is the last will and testament of the choir master of Popayán, Colombia. Ramírez was an absentee office holder, for he lived in Peñafiel, Spain, indulged in this failure to take up his duties in the New World by the bishop of Popayán — who happened to be his uncle. The choir master's wealth was considerable and while not itemized as in an estate inventory, it is more than hinted at via the bequests here of real estate (with provenance), of silver and gold chalices and crosses, and of cash in the form of coin. The bequests also give an interesting picture of the size of his family and the ranking of nieces, nephews, etc.    Certified, contemporary copy of the original. Sewn. In good condition. Very legible notarial hand.

         Waarachtige en aen-merkens-waardige historie van Lapland: . Met noch een kort bericht van den toestand der Finnen. Amsterdam, Jan ten Hoorn, 1682. 4to. With engraved frontispiece and 16 engraved plates by Jan Luyken, and 1 folding engraved map. Contemporary vellum.

      - Alden & Landis 682/155; Klaversma & Hannema 1282 and 1283; cf. Cox I, p. 178. First edition of the Dutch translation of a celebrated ethnographic monograph on Swedish Lapland by the German-born professor Johannes Gerhard Scheffer (1621-1679). Scheffer's account contains valuable information on the Lappish culture, with chapters on their ceremonies, houses, diet, clothing, trading customs, handicraft, entertainment, hunting, as well as marriage and death customs. "This history long remained the main source of information on Lapland" (Cox). It has become the liveliest, detailed and uncondescending early modern account of the far north and its population, now known as the Sami. The present Dutch edition was illustrated by the engraver Jan Luyken, one of the most famous illustrators of the Netherlands during the second half of the 17th century. The plates depict the daily life in the north, but also the worship of various idols, encounters with gnomes, etc.Some plates with minor restorations, some occasional foxing and a few small marginal water stains on the last few leaves. Front cover slightly damaged. A very good copy. [Attributes: First Edition]

         Spieghel der eyghen-kennisse, ... in-gheknoopt Het conterfeytsel des wereldts, ...Brussels, Lambert de Grieck, 1643. 4to. With engraved title-page, engraved portrait of the author (after P. de Backer), both by Antoine van der Does ("AVD"), and 3 nearly full-page engraved illustrations in the text, probably by Van der Does. 18th-century vellum.

      Bibl. Belg I, p. 319; BCNI 9630; Funck, pp. 282-283; STCV (8 copies incl. 4 incomplete). First edition, in Flemish Dutch, of a didactic satire, mostly in verse, by the Flemish poet and lawyer Willem van der Borcht or Guilelmus a Castro (1621/22-1668) in Brussels, with elegies and epigrams alternating with prose passages. It allegorically presents a mirror of self-knowledge and knowledge of the world, intended to improve the faults of the age and show the foolishness and vanity of the world. The fine plates by Antoine van der Does, showing scenes of rich and frivolous society, are of interest for the costume and morals of the time. The "Toe-ghifte", an integral part of the edition, but with its own title-page on 2D1, represents the world as a capricious woman. The portrait shows Van der Borcht at age 21 with the motto "nosce te ipsum", and a 2-line verse by Ericus Puteanus below. The 3 illustrations show realistic genre scenes, influenced by Rubens. Half the copies listed by the STCV lack the portrait and/or the engraved title-page. One illustration was printed over a crease in the paper, leaving a white line through part of the scene. In very good condition, with a minor water stain in the head margin of the engraved title, just touching its border. Binding lacking ties, with 1 sewing support broken at the back hinge, slightly wrinkled and a bit dirty, but still good. First edition of a satire of society, with plates made for it by Antoine van der Does.

         Observations sur la structure des yeux de divers insectes, et sur la trompe des papillons, contenuës en deux lettres au R.P. Lamy, ... Lyon, Leonard Plaignard, 1706. 8vo. With 3 folding engraved plates with 16 figures (original-size and microscopic views), woodcut cipher-monogram (JC for Jean Caffin?) on title-page, woodcut head- and tailpieces, decorated initial letters, and cast fleurons. Contemporary French calf, richly gold-tooled spine.

      Blake, p. 365; BMC NH, p. 1621; Cole Library 1190; Hagen, p. 54; Horn & Schenkling 17511; for Puget and Lamy: NBG XLI, col. 177 & XXIX, cols. 298-300. First and only edition of well-illustrated observations on the structure of insect (and crayfish) eyes and a butterfly proboscis by a pioneer of French microscopy. It begins with two letters written by Puget to the Benedictine scientist François Lamy (1626-1711) in 1704, followed by 59 pages explaining the figures in the plates in great detail. The figures include original-size and microscopic (about 300x) views of the eyes of a crayfish, dragonfly and butterfly, as well as a butterfly proboscis and its interior structure.Although Robert Hooke had published his microscopic views of insects and other things in his 1665 Micrographia , little progress was made in the improvement of the microscope until the introduction of achromatic lenses in the mid-18th century. Puget (1629-1709), like Leeuwenhoek in Holland, therefore had to compensate for the limitations of his equipment with a keen sense of observation, insight and natural curiosity, experimenting, for example with a candle flame and other images reflected in the compound eyes. Unlike Leeuwenhoek, he came from a wealthy family and was able to acquire microscopes and devote his leisure time to scientific studies, and he helped to establish the Lyon Académie des Sciences. The present work forms his most important contribution to science.With some contemporary manuscript corrections. In very good condition, with only an occasional minor spot in the text and a few faint marginal water stains, not approaching the text. The binding is skilfully rebacked, with the original back-strip laid down. A pioneering work of microscopy and entomology, especially interesting for the microscopic views of compound eyes.
