        Le Dessein de l'Histoire de Reims. Avec diverses curieuses remarques touchant l'Etablissement des Peuples, & la Fondation des Villes de France

      - Engraved title vignette of Reims, finely engraved portrait of Bergier on recto of é4, & six engraved plates (one folding). 8 p.l., 18, 468 pp. (privilege leaf replaced by blank leaf). Small 4to, cont. limp vellum (ties gone & one corner a little rounded). Reims: N. Hecart, 1635. First edition of this history of early France and, in particular, Reims, of which this was the most authoritative account up to this date; the author was only able to complete the first two parts before his death. Bergier (1567-1623), a historian and lawyer at Reims, was commissioned by Louis XIII to write a pioneering history of Roman roads which was consulted for several centuries. This work contains a lengthy description of Gaul's society before the Roman invasion, including much new research. Bergier then traces Reims' history from its beginnings as a small town ravaged numerous times by invading armies to the birthplace of the Kingdom of France, where every king was consecrated by the local archbishop. The frontispiece portrait of the author, signed by Edme Moreau (active 1617-60), is especially fine. The plates, two of which are signed by Moreau and Georges Baussonnet (1577-1644), a local draughtsman who produced an album illustrating the coronation of Louis XIII, depict the remains of Roman architecture, the tomb of Saint-Rémy de Reims, and a detailled panoramic view of the city and its university. Nice copy. On the bottom of the title-page there are two interlocked "C's." The leaf of privilege has been replaced by a blank leaf. Erratic pagination between pages 384 and 397. ? Benezit, Dictionary of Artists, Vol. 1, p. 1369 (Baussonnet) & Vol. 9, p. 1276 (Moreau). N.B.G., Vol. 5, cols. 513-14 (Bergier). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        New England. The most remarqueable parts thus named. by the high and mighty Prince Charles, nowe King of great Britaine

      London: Printed by James Reeve, 1635. Copper engraved map, engraved by Simon de Passe. With an oval portrait of Smith in the upper left corner titled "The Portraictuer of Captayne John Smith / Admirall of New England" and with a poem in homage to Smith below. With the arms of the Council of New England in the center of the map. Neatly repaired tear extending from the left margin. State 9. One of the legendary early maps of Colonial America: "the foundation map of New England cartography, the one that gave [New England] its name and the first devoted to the region" (Burden 187). This copy is the rare final state, with the correct location of Boston shown and named.After a period of inactivity following his Virginia escapades, Captain John Smith was invited by four London merchants to explore the coastline north of Virginia, with instructions to return with a profitable cargo. Smith arrived off the Kennebec River with two ships in May 1614. One of Smith's ships concentrated on catching fish and gathering other valuable commodities, while Smith continued down the coast to chart and explore. Smith immediately recognized the poor state of the existing cartography for the region. He noted that he had six or seven maps "of those northern parts, so unlike each to other, and most so differing from any true proportion, or resemblance of the Countrey, as they did me no more good, then so much waste paper."Returning to England in December 1615, Smith had the map published with his A Description of New England in June 1616. According to a legend on the map, much of the nomenclature was provided by Charles, Prince of Wales, the future Charles I. Several of these placenames are still in use, including Cape Anne, Charles River, and Plymouth.The decorative elements were engraved by the outstanding Dutch engraver Simon de Passe, who worked in London from 1616 to 1621. De Passe was most famous for his portraits. Griffiths notes that de Passe's English portraits "marked an epoch not only in the British print but in the development of European portrait engraving," most importantly for his introduction of "a new type of auricular frame ... It is curious that such an advanced type should first be popularized in England."The separately dated ("Ao 1616") portrait of Smith on the map, which may have been de Passe's first published in England, predates his auricular style. But the "scale of leagues" in the lower right corner clearly exhibits the "extraordinary curling and folding decoration" that he soon incorporated into his portrait frames. De Passe may have also been responsible for the map itself, but it was probably Robert Clark, whose name appears below de Passe's, who engraved the topographical detail.This is state nine of the map, which appeared in the atlas Historia Mundi , published in London between 1635 and 1639. For this state, Reeve's imprint appears in the lower right corner, the arms of the Council of New England have been added at the center of the map, a school of fish appears off of Cape Cod, text relating to Wood's New England Prospect appears below the compass rose and the town of Boston is shown in the correct location (previously appearing near present day York, Maine).Benes, New England Prospect,3; Burden, Mapping of North AmericaI: 187 (state 9); Deak, Picturing America , 19; Fite & Freeman, A Book of Old Maps , 34; Krieger & Cobb, Mapping Boston , pp. 82-83; McCorkle, New England in Early Printed Maps , 614.1; Degrees of Latitude , 6; Schwartz & Ehrenberg, The Mapping of America , plate 53; Suarez, Shedding the Veil,42.

        Der hochwichtige Articul Von der Wiedergeburt, Dero Ursachen, Mittel, Art, Pflichten, Würden, Kennzeichen und übrigen dahin gehörigen Materialien / auß unterschiedlichen Texten Heil. Schrift In 66 Wochen-Predigten Der Christlichen Gemeinde zu S. Nicolai in Berlin, Durch GOttes Gnade vorgetragen, und Auff Christlicher Freunde Ansuchen zum Druck gegeben.

      (16), 1052 (recte 1060), (4) Seiten. Frakturdruck. Schwarz-roter Titel. 8 (21 x 16,5 cm). Pergamentband der Zeit mit durchgezogenen Bünden und gesprenkeltem Schnitt. [Hardcover / fest gebunden]. Bircher C2483. - Grünberg 63. - VD17, 1:020995K. - Der ordentliche Pergamentband vor allem am Hinterdeckel gering fleckig und etwas berieben. Auf dem Vorderdeckel Abdruck eines Wasserglases und verblasste ältere Tintenspuren. - Innen durchgehend leicht gebräunt, Vorsatz stärker. - Insgesamt gutes und sauberes Exemplar der für die pietistischen Glaubensinhalte eminent wichtigen Wiedergeburtspredigten, die den Buß- und Bekehrungsweg der Gläubigen vom verlorenen Sünder über den reuigen Büßer bis hin zum wiedergeborenen Christen illustrieren und somit eine sehr persönliche "subtilitas applicandi" pietistischer Bibelhermaneutik bilden. Mit der Wiedergeburt des geistlichen Menschen ist nach Spener die Vergebung der Sünden und der Beginn eines gottgefälligen Lebens verbunden freilich kann der Wiedergeborene dieses Lebens wieder verlustig gehen die ständige Prüfung der eigenen Rechtgläubigkeit ist damit ein kontinuierlicher, nicht endender und mühevoller Prozess. - Das Leitbild des "Wiedergeborenen" und dessen "praxis pietatis" ist das zentrale Motiv der pietistischen Erweckungs-Bewegung, verlagert den Begriff von rechtem Glauben in den Bereich der innerlichen Erlebniswirklichkeit und befördert damit die Introspektion, die Selbst-Vergewisserung und letztlich damit die Aufklärung (als "Ausgang des Menschen aus seiner selbstverschuldeten Unmündigkeit") bis hin zur Empfindsamkeit und sentimentalischen Dichtung des 18. Jahrhunderts. - Selten, zumal in diesem guten Zustand. - Zu Spener (1635), einem der produktivsten und innovativsten Theologen des 17. Jahrhunderts und Begründer des Pietismus, vgl. RE XVIII, 609ff. - BBKL X, 909ff. - TRE XXXI, 652ff, "Spener hat, abgesehen von einer zweijährigen Unterbrechung 1675/76, seine Predigten wörtlich ausgearbeitet. Auf der Kanzel spontan zugefügte Passagen hat er als vom Heiligen Geist eingegeben angesehen und unmittelbar nach dem Gottesdienst in sein Manuskript eingetragen. Es gibt keinen zweiten deutschenprotestantischen Theologen ähnlicher Bedeutung, von dem so viele Predigten bekannt und zu großen Teilen gedruckt überliefert sind. Ein vollständiger Catalogus, von Spener selbst aufgesetzt (gedruckt 1715), führt 3.005 Predigten auf [...] Neben diese im sonntäglichen Hauptgottesdienst gehaltenen Predigten treten Wochenpredigten aus der Berliner Zeit, die deutlicher an einen kleineren Kreis ernster Christen gerichtet sind und dadurch stärker pietistisches Gepräge habe: Der hochwichtige Articul von der Wiedergeburt (1696)". Contemporary vellum slightly stained and rubbed, a little browned throughout. Overall a good and clean copy of the very scarce first edition. Of great importance for the developement of protestant spirituality and the growth of the evangelical movements until today.

Notwithstanding all the efforts of all previous learned editors, there were 'non pauca loca' which needed mending. (p. *2 recto). He consulted, he tells, previous editions and weighed the observations of many Latin scholars, and especially relied on the Plinian observations of the French scholar Claudius Salmasius, of whom he adopted a great number of notes, which he incorporated in the section (of 24,14 & 13 pages) of 'Variae lectiones observationesque' at the end of each of the three volumes. § Claude de Saumaise, latinized as Claudius Salmasius, 1588-1653, accepted in 1632 the chair formerly held by Scaliger at the university of Leiden, where he remained till 1650. He was an expert on Plinius Maior, for in 1629 he published his most remarkable work the 'Plinianae Emendationes', 900 pages filled with eludications of the 'Historia Naturalis' of Pliny. § The Dutch scholar and geographer Johannes de Laet, 1582-1649, was of Flemish origin. He was a resident of Leiden all his life, studied there under Scaliger, and later he befriended Salmasius. In 1621 he became Director of the newly established 'Dutch West India Company', in Dutch 'Geoctroyeerde Westindische Compagnie'. At Leiden he was also acquainted with the Elseviers, for whom he produced eleven (of the 48) volumes of the 'Respublicae' series. In 1649 De Laet published an edition of Vitruvius. He is however remembered for his descriptions of the West Indies and America. In 1625 he published in Leiden his 'Nieuwe Wereldt ofte beschrijvinghe van West-Indien', of which work a Latin translation appeared in 1633, 'Novus Orbis seu descriptio Indiae Occidentalis', 'arguably the finest description of the Americas published in the seventeenth century'.

        Prussia accurate descriptia a Gasparo Henneberg Erlichensi

      Artist: Blaeu Willem Janszoon ca ; issued in: Amsterdam; date: ca1635 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 39 x 51; - description: Gorgeous map of Prussia with a decorative title cartouche.; - 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.

        Que aviendo dado cuenta a V. Magestad de algunos excessos del General Don Antonio de Oquendo, que lo ha sido de Galeones el año de 634 y Flota de la Provincia de Tierra-Firme

      1635 - Memorial asking to punish the Commander of the Treasure Fleet. N.d. [c.1634]. In folio (295 x 202 mm). 8 ff. Unbound. Fine example, wide margins, and clean paper. 2,600 $ Rare memorial prepared by Nicolas Iudice with regards to the conduct of Don Antonio de Oquendo, and lists his actions, which would be subject to reprimand. Oquendo (1577 – 1640) was a remarkable Spanish Admiral and navigator, son of Miguel de Oquendo, who died during the Armada Invencible campaign; after a time working at the Viceroyalty of New Spain, he became Admiral-General of the Ocean Fleet, a position under which Oquendo lead an attack on Pernambuco, to relieve it from the Dutch West India Company, who had taken it the previous year. Iudice was commander of the troops on board the fleet Captained by Oquendo, he “complains of the high-handed action taken by General Antonio de Oquendo, in command of the Galleons, who, in contravention of the King’s decrees and other instructions, had deprived Judice of his command, and subjected him to imprisonment and other indignities at Portobello and Habana; and, by his lack of judgment, lost some vessels off Habana.” (Maggs, VI, 164). The imprint is full of reports of Oquendo´s actions during his period as Admiral of the Fleet in the Caribbean, and thus a significant source of information on Spanish activities in the region. Rare, we could only trace one copy ever offered, by Maggs, in 1927. Not in Palau or Sabin. [Attributes: First Edition]

His 1606 edition of ‘Julius Caesar’ would become the standard text for nearly two centuries Julius Caesar’s war commentaries are some of the most prolific military writings! While not specifically known for his writing, Julius Caesar wrote this book which would become a mainstay in the Latin literature canon. It focuses on first-hand account of Julius Caesar in the Callic wars, but it was written as though from a third-person view. This fine first edition is extremely desirable, and, according to Willems, is “the finest of all Elzevier productions!” Willems continues of this edition – “This reprint (from the first edition) is beautifully executed and copy line for line the original.” This printing matches the expected edition points listed in Willems.

        Commentarius in organum sev logicam Aristotelis pro oemium.

      O. O., 1635. - Fol. 167, 21 nn. Bll. Kl.4°. Einband d. Z. aus Pergamenthandschrift. Berieben, fleckig und gebräunt; einige wenige Wurmlöcher; teils etwas braun- und wasserfleckig; Widmung (meist unleserlich) auf Titelei; möglicherweise fehlt am Schluß eine Lage. Sehr saubere Handschrift in brauner Tinte auf Papier; Überschriften in römischer Kapitalis. Möglicherweise handelt es sich um die Reinfassung einer Mitschrift oder das Skript einer Vorlesung über die Logik des Aristoteles, worauf der didaktische Aufbau (Frage-Antwort) hindeutet. Ohne eingehende Vergleichung von Text und/oder Handschrift war es mir nicht möglich, den Verfasser zu eruieren: In Frage kommen könnte z. B. der schottische Philosoph Robert Balfour (1553-1621, u. a. in Paris und Bordeaux), der 1616 einen "Commentarius in organum logicum Aristotelis" verfasste; oder Philipp Zinner, von dem in der Franziskanerbibliothek Schwaz eine Handschrift von 1627 (Kopist: Johann Georg Erdinger) vorhanden ist ("Quaestiones logicae in organum Aristotelis"); oder Anselmus Schlager (Andechs) oder Sebastian Rhöer OSB (Ottobeuren) (Kopist der beiden: Paul Ramblmayr von Taufers; Exemplare in der Schwazer Bibliothek) oder auch Uldarich Freyberger (dictatus)/Bonifacius Schmidt (excerptus) aus Salzburg (Exemplar in der Grazer Universitätsbibliothek).
