         Das Norder theil des Lands Brasilien .

      Francoforte 1633 - Carta geografica raffigurante parte del Pernambuco, con le città di Olinda e Recife. La carta è tratta dall'ultima edizione de "Grandi Viaggi" di Johannes Theodor de Bry, curata da Mattheus Merian ed edita a Francoforte nel 1633-34. Incisione in rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. The map, displayed on a roll above, shows the coastal contours, with place-names along the Brazilian coast near Recife and Olinda, and below is a bird's-eye view of the siege with ships and the movements of the troops. With the hope of taking control of the sugar trade in Brazil, the fleet of the Dutch West India Company attacked Recife. While the troops landed further north, the fleet, under the command of Admiral Lonq, tried to force an entrance to the harbour but his ships were repulsed by the Portuguese, under the command of Albuquerque. The siege lasted two weeks and in the end the Dutch finally broke through. The Portuguese, however, not wishing their rivals to benefit from their labours, burnt all their sugar warehouses and shipping, the loss of which was estimated at two million ducats.

      Paris, Pierre Chaudière 1633 - in-folio, [3] ff. n. ch. (titre, dédicace, privilège), 724 pp., [6] ff. n. ch. de table des lettres, interversion des ff. 581-82 et 583-84, et 715-16 et 717-18, manque le portrait, veau fauve granité, dos à nerfs cloisonné et fleuronné à l'imitation, pièce de titre cerise, tranches mouchetées (rel. du XIXe siècle). Quelques mouillures claires, mais bon exemplaire. Comme les éditions de 1623 et 1629, notre troisième sortie est dédiée à Pierre Brûlart, vicomte de Puysieux (1583-1640), secrétaire d'État et grand trésorier. Il était le fils du chancelier Nicolas Brûlart de Sillery qui avait négocié le divorce et le remariage du roi Henri IV avec Marie de Médicis. Jacques Davy Du Perron (1556-1618) passa sa jeunesse en Suisse où s'étaient réfugiés ses parents calvinistes. En 1576, il vint à Paris où sur les conseils du poète Philippe Desportes, il abjura le protestantisme et obtint la place de lecteur de Henri III, ce qui lui permit de laisser libre cours à des travaux d'érudition et de poésie. À la mort du dernier Valois, il fut remarqué par Henri IV qui lui donna l'évêché d'Évreux. Proche du nouveau roi, il usa de son influence sur ce dernier pour le ramener à la religion catholique et, en 1595, il obtint, secondé par l'abbé Arnaud d'Ossat, son absolution de la part du pape Clément VIII. Sacré évêque à Rome, il se consacra désormais à la prédication et suscita de nombreuses conversions. Ses qualités de controversiste et de diplomate le firent nommer ambassadeur de France à Rome avant de devenir archevêque de Sens (1606) et membre du Conseil de Régence (1610). Ce recueil a été établi par son secrétaire César de Ligny qui ne reproduit pas les lettres déjà parues dans Les Diverses ?uvres (Paris, 1622, 3 vol. in-folio) dont les Ambassades sont considérées comme un tome quatrième. Il y a là 84 lettres au roi, des lettres de cardinaux et à des cardinaux, à Bellegarde, Bellièvre, Béthune, La Boderie, Harlay, Sully, Canaye. Le tout rangé dans un certain ordre chronologique, sauf les pièces relatives à l'absolution. C'est sur cette affaire que la collection est importante, ainsi que sur les conclaves de Léon XI et Paul V. Cioranescu, 8972. SHF, Hauser, X, 2705. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

         Self portrait Anna Maria van Schurman (Schuurman).

      In this self portrait Anna Maria van Schurman combined the techniques of engraving and etching. She depicted herself wearing an elegant dress embellished with lace on the bodice and sleeves. She convincingly rendered the illusion of spatial depth by shading the inner rim of the oval frame and placing herself behind a ledge, which pushes her figure farther back into the picture plane.That ledge also obscures her hands. Van Schurman hid her hands in her first engraved self-portrait (1633), as well, for which a correspondent, the poet and statesman Constantijn Huygens, chided her. He admonished van Schurman for being ashamed of her ink-stained hands, which he said ""have never found their equal.""As the inscription on the oval frame tells us, the artist realized this palte in 1640 when she was 33 years old. The Latin inscription at the bottom is addressed to her friends, to whom she sent this portrait. It reads: 'See my likeness depicted in this portrait:/May your favor perfect the work where art has failed.' [Cernitis hic picta nostros in imagine vultus: / Si negat ars forma, gratia vestra dabit]. Signed on bottom right with her initials: 'A.M. á S. Fec.'. Etching and engraving on laid paper; trimmed closed to plate mark; total: 203 x 156 mm; state IV/4, some dirt and smudges along the margins; some dirt on the verso; two tiny worm holes the size of small pin holes. Little scratch mark on the forehead; beautiful impression; Hollstein 3.

The Piscatory Eclogs and other Poeticall Miscellanies has a separate title-page. A third title-page introduces another poem, "Elisa: an Elegie upon the unripe demise of Sr Antonie Irby." A poem by Francis Quarles closes the volume: "To my deare friend, the Spencer [sic.] of this day."

      - Sedan, Jean Jannon, 1633. Small 8vo. Contemporary armorial full black morocco, ornamented in gilt, all edges gilt; ff. 364, 88, 112, [56], printed on fine, thin paper of good quality; wear to corners, one tiny hole to spine, title a little spotted, very faint trace of humidity, first leaf of the NT with marginal paperflaw, affecting only single letters of each line, remargined at a very early date; provenance: endpapers repeatedly inscribed by Rebecca Wollaston, and once by one John Chester, dated 1704. Printed in the independent (up to 1651) Protestant Principality of Sedan in the Ardennes, close to the modern French border with Belgium, this Geneva Bible in French is a rather sensational achievement of French typography and Protestant book production. In 1610 the Parisian master printer Robert III Estienne recommended the printer, librarian and typecutter Jean Jannon to the Prince of Sedan as a talented and Protestant man of the book. Sedan developed into an academy of Protestant erudition with an impressive collection of printed books, manustcripts and works of art. Jannon began to print academic theses, classics and religious works, whilst designing and cutting types in Latin, Greek, Hebrew and Syriac. The type used here, la petite sedanoise, as it became known later, after it had been pirated by a Parisian typecutter, was the smallest type created since the invention of printing. It measures a mere 4.9 points. Jannon reserved this particular type solely for his own use and did not sell it to other printers as he did with other types of his design. The French government seized Jannon's printshop in 1641 and the Imprimà rie Royale used this particularly small type, which was later mis-attributed to Garamond.

        The Kings Maiesties declaration to his subjects, concerning lawfull sports to bee used.

Ware', with the 19th century armorial bookplates of Richard Clark Esqr. Chamberlain of London (1739-1831) and of William Henry Drummond, 9th Viscount Strathallan (1810-1886),> bound, presumably for Richard Clark, in late 18th or early 19th century half russia gilt. A good copy wanting only the final blank. First printing of this reissue (see notes below). STC 9257. The Declaration of Sports> (also known as the Book of Sports>) was a declaration of James I of England issued in 1617 listing the sports and recreations that were permitted on Sundays and other holy days. It was originally issued in consultation with Thomas Morton, bishop of Chester, to resolve a dispute in Lancashire between the Puritans and the gentry (many of whom were Roman Catholics). The initial declaration was just for Lancashire, but in 1618, James made the declaration national. The 1618 declaration has largely the same main text as the 1617 version, but with an additional paragraph at the beginning explaining that the king has decided to make the declaration applicable to the whole of England. The declaration listed archery, dancing, 'leaping, vaulting, or any other such harmless recreation' as permissible sports, together with 'May-games, Whitsun-ales and Morris-dances, and the setting up of May-poles'. Also allowed: "women shall have leave to carry rushes to the church for the decorating of it, according to their old custom." Amongst the activities that were prohibited were bear- and bull-baiting, 'interludes' and bowling. On the one hand, the declaration rebuked Puritans and other 'precise persons', and was issued to counteract the growing Puritan calls for strict abstinence on the Christian Sabbath (Sabbatarianism). On the other, it condemned Catholics and others who did not attend church services in their parish, as the declaration specified that only people who had first attended divine service were entitled to participate in recreations afterward. The declaration was reissued by Charles I on 18 October 1633, as The King's Majesty's declaration to his subjects concerning lawful sports to be used.> It was claimed by William Prynne that the new declaration was written by Charles' new Archbishop of Canterbury, William Laud, but Laud denied this and there is only evidence that he supported and facilitated the reissue. Moreover, the 1633 declaration has the same main text as the 1617 and 1618 declarations of King James, with the primary differences an additional introduction and conclusion adding wakes and ales (countryside festivals) to the list of sanctioned recreations. Charles ordered that any minister who refused to read it would be deprived of position. As the Puritans gained power in Parliament in the lead-up to the English Civil War, hostility to the Book of Sports> grew. Attempts to enforce the declaration came to an end with the fall of Archbishop Laud in 1640, and Parliament ordered the book publicly burned in 1643, two years before Laud was executed.' [Cautiously borrowed from Wikipedia]. * The ms note at the foot of the title page reads: 'These bookes were burnt at London by ye hand of ye common ha[ng]man by authority of ye Parliament 1641'. This is really quite a remarkable document. Not only does it criticize 'Papists and Puritanes', it encourages working people to enjoy Sunday afternoon recreation - provided, of course, they have been to 'Divine Service' in the morning. 'Our pleasure . is, that after the end of Divine service, our good people be not disturbed, letted, or discouraged from any lawful recreation .'. Sunday a [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
