FINE 18th-century Italian mottled vellum, all edges gilt (extremities a bit rubbed). A rare and attractive set of the 3 volume French edition of Jansson's "Atlas Novus". The set collates as follows: volume I, Koeman II Me97B, 109 maps; volume II, a variant of 92B with 98 rather than 99 maps, and with the title-page and address not on overslips, probably an intermediate state between 92A and 92B; volume III, 112 maps, a variant of Me 39B with the date on the title-page altered to 1641. By 1638 Jansson had taken control of the publishing firm begun by his father-in-law Jodocus Hondius, and issued his "Atlas Novus", a completely new work although based on the work of Mercator. He expanded the atlas to three volumes in competition with Blaeu, it was a great success and published long after Jansson's death in 1664. Catalogued by Kate Hunter [Attributes: Hard Cover]

The Civil-War inspired several proposals to liberalize and modernize areas of the common law.

        Epitome de los principios, y progressos de las guerras de Cataluña en los años 1640 y 1641 y señalada victoria de Monjuyque

      1641 - Revolution in Cataluña. 1641. Lisbon. Antonio Alvarez. In 8vo (190 mm x 140 mm). 2 ff. + [Principios y progressos de las guerras del Principado de Cataluña] 38 ff. Unbound. Upper margin lightly cropped, else very fresh and clean. Contemporary account of the major events and conflicts occurred in the first two years year of the Guerra dels Segadors, also known as the Catalan Revolt or the Reaper’s War (1640 - 1652). The work accounts other principal events occurred at Tortosa, Barcelona, Terragona, Martorell, Lérida, Martorell, Perpiñan, and so on. Included is the narration of the important Battle of Montjuic (1641), which marked the official start of the lengthy Guerra Dels Segadors that lasted approximately nine years. This long war, which affected almost the entire Catalonia, started with the discontentment of the Catalans by the presence of the Castilian troops in the region during the wars between France and Spain. Higher Castilian officials forced Catalan peasants to make part of the Castilian force against France. In May 1640, on Corpus Christi Day, a large number of Catalan peasants rebelled, and on that same date the Spanish viceroy in Catalonia was found dead. As a result the Spanish monarchy sent a strong force to crush the revolt. The events gradually resulted in a large-scale conflict involving Catalan, French and Spanish armed forces. The first edition, published in Barcelona, is regarded as Palau as “muy estimada”. Palau, 285725. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Santuario de Nuestra Señora de Copacabana en el Perú. Poema Sacro compuesto por

      Luis de Lyra, editor, Lima 1641 - UN IMPRESO DE SINGULAR IMPORTANCIA EN LA TIPOGRAFÍA LIMEÑA. 8vo; portada grabada; pergamino de época. – PRIMERA Y ÚNICA EDICIÓN de este temprano poema sacro impreso en Lima, en el cual figura, en la portada, uno de los pocos grabados dejados por el Fraile Agustino Francisco Bejarano, discipulo de Mateo Pérez de Alesio, con la imagen de la Virgen de Copacabana; la épica religiosa comprende escasos poemas escritos en América por españoles o por criollos, siendo este uno de los más importantes, junto con La Cristiada de Diego de Hojeda, 1611 y El Ignacio de Cantabria de Pedro de Oña, 1639. En esta obra Valverde combina mitología indígena con ideas de la antigüedad clásica. El origen de la Virgen de Copacabana hay que situarlo en la Cordillera de los Andes, en la península de Copacabana que se encuentra en el lago Titicaca, actualmente Bolivia, pero que pertenecía al Virreinato del Peru. Esta edición original es casi inencontrable: Medina poseyó un ejemplar falto de portada la magnífica portada grabada y de la hoja de Tassas y en España hay solo un ejemplar; OCLC localiza ejemplares solo en JCB y Harvard; según ABPC no hay ventas en los últimos 30 años en subastas de USA. THE VIRGIN OF COPACABANA & INDIAN MYTHOLOGY: EXTREMELY RARE LIMA IMPRINT, 1641. 8vo.; engraved title page; contemporary vellum- FIRST AND ONLY EDITION of this early sacred poem printed in Lima. On the title page is one of the few engravings done by the Augustinian Friar Francisco Bejarano, a disciple of Mateo Pérez de Alesio, with the image of the Virgin of Copacabana; the religious epic contains scarce poems written in America by Spaniards or by Spanish Americans, with this being one of the most important along with La Cristiada of Diego de Hojeda (1611) and El Ignacio de Cantabria of Pedro de Oña (1639). In this work Valverde combines Indian mythology with ideas of classical antiquity. The origin of the Virgin of Copacabana must be situated in the Andean mountain range, on the peninsula of Copacabana that extends into Lake Titicaca in modern Bolivia but which belonged to the Viceroyalty of Peru. This original edition is practically impossible to find: Medina owned a copy lacking the magnificent engraved title page and the taxation leaf. In Spain there is only one copy and OCLC locates copies only in JCB and Harvard; according to ABPC there have been no copies sold at auction in the USA in the last 30 years. 294 pp páginas

Palau, nº. 292741, no reseña las páginas preliminares. Muy buen ejemplar muy raro en mercado del que no existe ejemplar alguno en bibliotecas españolas. Segunda traducción al francés de las obras del Beato Juan de la Cruz, a partir de la tercera edición impresa en Madrid por la Viuda de Madrigal en 1630, en la que por primera vez se incluía el Cántico Espiritual. Anteriormente, el carmelita René Gaultier, que jugó un papel imprescindible en la expansión del Carmelo Reformado en Francia, había dado a la estampa su traslación en formato 8º. de Les oeuvres spirituelles pour acheminer les ames á la parfaicte union avec Dieu, du bienhereux P. Jean de la Croix (Paris, Michel Sonnius, 1621-22), así como la primicia del Cantique d´amour divinin, entre Jesus-Christ et l'Ame devote' (Paris, Adrian Tapinart, 1622), a partir de los manuscritos que poseía Ana de Jesús. En este caso, la traslación de Cyprien de la Nativité (1605-1680), además de ser más completa, se convierte en la más influyente en el ámbito francófono, reeditándose en versiones revisadas hasta nuestros días. Su gran calidad literaria fue destacada por el poeta vanguardista Paul Valéry, que le consideró como "uno de los poetas más perfectos de Francia". Conviene llamar la atención sobre la recreación que las versiones francesas hicieron del boceto simbólico del Monte Carmelo, y que se desarrolla en un grabado alegórico humanizado.

        Study of a Variegated Tulip.

      Holland 18th century - Watercolour on Dutch laid paper, excellent condition, some mild browning. Dimensions: 180 by 130mm. (7 by 5 inches). This study of a delicate purple variegated tulip is in the manner of Anthony Claesz who produced his "Tulip Book" around 1641. It was a prime example of the florilegia commissioned to illustrate the different varieties of tulip bulb, which at the time commanded extraordinarily high prices during the economic bubble of the early 17th century that became known as Tulipomania. The naturally beautiful nature of these works ensured their images would be copied for decades to come by painters and gardeners alike. Claesz was a Dutch master in his own right, with several highly accomplished works to his name. However, as with most of the great Dutch masters of this period, they happily supplemented their income by illustrating such books. It also allowed them to study in detail subjects that would later be incorporated into their great flower pieces. Tulipomania, or Tulip Mania, was an early 17th century by-product of the economic boom experienced by Holland, newly independent from Spain, as it consolidated it trade links, particularly through the Dutch East Indies Company. Of the many exotic products and specimens to be introduced to Europe, the tulip particularly captured the desire for such new luxuries. The price for the more highly sought-after bulbs could be ten times the annual salary of the average skilled worker. It is little wonder it culminated in t he market crash of the 1630s. Tulips stood out in comparison with European botany in the intensity of their colouring, with the variegated varieties being particularly prized. This example is of the violetten, or purple and white striped strain. The variegation was originally the result of the mosaic virus, also known as the breaking virus, transmitted by aphids, that transformed the pigmentation in this manner, though at the expense of weakening the plant. The same effect was later reacreated by deliberate cross-pollination.

        Cataluña Defendida de sus Emulos. Illustrada con sus Hechos, Fidelidad, y Servicios a sus Reyes. Por el Doctor Antonio Ramques, natural de la Seo de Urgel. Por mandado del Señor Deputado Real.

      En Lerida, por Enrique Castañ, 1641. - in-4. 4ff. 17pp. (i.e.71). 1f. Plein vélin souple d'origine. Edition Originale dédiée à Pau Claris et à l'ensemble des membres de la Députation, de cet ouvrage rarissime imprimé à Lérida en décembre 1640, quelques mois après les débuts de la guerre des Faucheurs qui avait vu les paysans catalans prendre le contrôle de Barcelone et assassiner son gouverneur. Après avoir exposé les faits qui démontraient à ses yeux la loyauté de la Catalogne à l'égard de ses rois, autant sur le plan militaire que sur celui de l'économie et de la culture, l'auteur proteste contre le traitement reçu en retour dans les premières années du règne de Philippe IV, et développe une importante série d'arguments en faveur de l'indépendance de la Catalogne sous forme de République. "En el texto de Marqués domina el tema de la anti tirania y en ella, no por casualidad, hace su aparición la posible solución republicana. Entre los privilegios de Barcelona 'otro mayor tiene que es el de regirse y governarse para si misma como la Señoria de Venecia o Génova siempre que los Reyes no le guarden sus fueros y privilegio'. A diferencia de Marti, Marqués insiste especialmente en los elementos del autogobierno ciudadano y provincial. Entre los 106 privilegios de Barcelona se encuentran el de recibir el juramento de los reyes, el de poder enviar cónsules al exterior, el que otorga a sus consellers plena jurisdicción civil y criminal; éstos pueden ordenar normas y permanecen con la cabeza cubierta en presencia del rey (cap. 11). Por lo que se refiere a la Generalitat, creada para el servicio de Dios, del rey y de la patria y para tutelar las propias leyes y libertades, sus privilegios no son concesiones sino que tienen una naturaleza contractual, han sido jurados y son inviolables como sostienen los libros sagrados y Platón en el libro octavo de la República" (Victor Ivo Comparato). Précieux exemplaire du grand Colbert, avec la mention manuscrite "Bibliotheca Colbertina" sur la page de titre et dans un superbe état de conservation (quelques rousseurs éparses). Bibliotheca Colbetina, II, 9199. Cf. Vittor Ivo Comparato, "Barcelona y Napoles en la busqueda de un modelo politico: analogis, diferencias, contactos", in: [Attributes: First Edition]

Quarto: [8], 264 [i.e. 270], [10] pp. Lacks gathering E (pp. 25-32). With four printer's blank leaves at the front and three at the back. Text interleaved throughout with printer's blank leaves. Bound in late 19th Century full black leather decorated in gilt, black suede endpapers, with modest wear at the spine ends, tidemarks visible on the first few leaves; a very good copy. With extensive manuscript annotations on many of the printer's blank leaves and marginal notes in a contemporary or 18th Century hand. Includes several owner's names (Ana Johnson, Edward [surname illegible] dated 1736, and Thomas Goodwin dated 1736, perhaps the author's son or another relation of the author), with an intriguing note in pencil on the first leaf (verso): "Pray give this Book to Mrs. Piozzi," presumably referring to Hester Lynch Thrale (later Mrs. Piozzi), the confidante of Dr. Samuel Johnson. This association is made all the more intriguing as the blank leaf following the title page is signed in ink: "H: M: Thrale, 1804," this being Hester Thrale's first born daughter Hester Maria "Queeney" Thrale, whom Johnson often addressed in his correspondence as "My sweet, dear, pretty, little Miss."

        Architectura privata: das ist: Gründtliche Beschreibung ... inn was Form ... ein ... Bürgerliches Wohnhauss ... erbawet ... worden

      Augsburg: Johann Schultes and Mathias Rembold, 1641. From the Collection of Arthur & Charlotte Vershbow. Folio (300 x 203 mm). Letterpress title printed in red and black (torn and repaired), 15 double-page or folding engraved plates or plans by Matthäus Rembold (1629-1657), on guards. Contemporary vellum. Some plates trimmed closely. Provenance: purchased from Ars Libri, 1990. FIRST EDITION of this work on civil architecture by the eminent Ulm architect Joseph Furttenbach the Elder. The Architectura privata describes his own dwelling-house and grounds, and the fine copperplates show the basics and elevations of the house, windows, portals, grotto and gardens, among other things. With its small grotto, richly decorated with rare flowers arranged in compartments, Furttenbach's garden courtyard epitomizes the intimate "secret garden" owned by the wealthy bourgeoisie in early seventeenth-century Germany and the Netherlands. The grotto in his garden is described as being filled with artifice and exotica, including shell-encrusted sculptures and waterworks, painted cosmological imagery, and mirrors. The flowers depicted are identifiable as the most sought after and costly bulbs of the period, the narcissus, tulip, fritillary, and crown imperial, demonstrating Furttenbach's knowledge of current botanical research. Following his studies in architecture and engineering in Italy, Furttenbach returned to Ulm where he designed buildings and gardens and published a number of treatises on architecture and fortification. His construction of the Ulm city fortifications were among the strongest of their time, remaining impregnable during the Thirty Years' War. Berlin Kat. 1958.

Containing the severall patents; proclamations, orders, whereby the Soape-makers of London, and other His Majesties subjects, were damnified, by the Gentlemen that were the patentees for soape at Westminister, with the particular proceedings concerning the same.

      London printed for Nicholas Bourne at the South Entrance of the Royall Exchange 1641 - 4to, 29 + (1)pp, without the final blank, inksplash on title, no pages numbered after p.16, late 19th century half calf with a label. A good copy. First and only edition. Amex 420. Goldsmiths 724. Kress 603. Wing S.3555. See Scott, The Constitution and Finance of English, Scottish and Irish Joint-Stock Companies to 1720> I, p.219. An interesting and amusing tract on commercial rivalry, monopolistic oppression, consumer fraud and the making of soap, with reference to the Greenland Whale Fishery Company. In 1631, hoping to exploit the soap trade as a source of revenue, Charles I granted a monopoly of soap-manufactures to a Westminster group made up of inexperienced Catholic recusants. The new patent was justified on the basis of invention which allegedly made a better, cheaper white soap without the use of whale oil, which had been the key ingredient in the patent of the dispossessed London soap makers: the latter were now ruthlessly suppressed, brought before the Star Chamber, and even jailed. In this petition the Londoners narrate the extraordinary repressive measures taken against themselves and the general public and expose the fraud of their Westminster rivals, who in fact continued to use whale oil while producing an inferior and more expensive product. 'The economies, as a matter of fact, had not become actual; and the new company, working by its old methods, would be forced, in justice to itself, to recover the Crown-royalty as well as the sums paid to the members of the late society of Soapers. Moreover, when it obtained a monopoly, it was not in human nature for the soap-boilers to abstain from obtaining pecuniary compensation for their past sufferings by surreptitiously advancing prices, in spite of proclamations to the contrary effect. Therefore it follows that the consumer was destined to pay heavily for the disturbance of the trade during the past five years: and until the abolition of monopolies of this character, the price was close upon double what it had been in 1630'. [Scott].
