        Les marques d'honneur de la masion de Tassis.

      Antwerp: Balthasar Moretus 1645 - Folio. First edition of a richly illustrated history of the family of Thurn und Taxis. Contemporary blind tooled calf, raised bands. Wear and some abrasions to leather. Joints starting to split. 8 of 9 plates, 3 folding, 25 coats of arms engraved in text, head and tail pieces. Occasional dampstaining in margins, affecting engraved title, minor worming in gutters primarily at back. Published on the occasion of the coming of age of Lamoral Cladius Franz, Count of Taxis. From an early age he had taken an interest in his distinguished family whose fortunes derived from their monopoly on the postal services in the Holy Roman Empire, the Netherlands and Burgundy since the early sixteenth century. Perhaps the most remarkable engraving in the work is the double-page plate by Wenzel Hollar representing the splendid funeral of Jean-Baptise De Tassis, which took place in Cologne 1588. The count had been killed during the siege of the town of Bonn. The work also contains a fine portrait of Count Lamoral engraved by Paul Pontius after Nicholaus van der Horst, both distinguished pupils of Rubens. Both were also responsible for the remarkable double portraits of Muley Hassan, ruler of Tunis in the 1530s, and Johann Baptista, Count of Taxis, both in Arab costume and identical pose. Muley Hassan resided in Johann Baptista's house in Brussels for a few months in 1535 after the capture of his kingdom by the Barbary Pirates. He was reinstated by Charles V later in the same year. Drugulin 765; Funck 291; Hollstein 9: Van der Horst, 50-53, 56, 62-63. Cioranescu 1928 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Count Tilly

      May 15, 1645. Although the famous Count Tilly, Johann Tserklaes, was successful and enjoyed the good graces of the Habsburg Empire, his son was not so lucky. Only thirteen years after the death of the elder Count Tilly, the younger had run up a string of debts to the Habsburg government. In this letter, he pleas for clemency from a Habsburg deputy. He protests that he cannot pay his current taxes, let alone the interest on unpaid army, beer, and land taxes. Here, a man whose father gave his life for the empire could not come up with the money to pay its presumably excessive taxes. He blames his inability to pay on an unnamed enemy and promises to pay as soon as he can. This is a story that gets left out of most histories of the Habsburg Empire. Minor spotting does not affect the text of the letter and the seal is well-preserved. Written in German, the letter is accompanied by a notarized translation.

        Der VII Tugenden, Planeten, Töne oder Stimmen. Aufzug. In kunstzierliche Melodien gesetzet. [Fünfter Theil].

      Nürnberg: Wolffgang Endter, 1645. Small oblong octavo. Patterned black cloth boards. [1] (title), [2]-[3] (introduction and notes on musical tones as they relate to the planets and human virtues), [4]-[38] pp. typeset music. Published as Part V of the periodical Frauenzimmer Gesprächspiele edited by Georg Philipp Harsdörffer. Music for solo voices with figured bass and instrumental interludes. Binding slightly worn and rubbed. Browned and stained; some foxing; burns to upper margins with minor loss; some signatures split. Rare. RISM S1645a (2 copies in the U.S. only, at the Newberry and Yale). Staden was a German composer, instrumentalist, organist and theorist, son of Johann Staden. "He was a leading musician in Nuremberg, and though a lesser composer than his father he is perhaps, as the composer of the first extant Singspiel [Seelewig, referred to below], historically more important." The Singspiel Seelewig appeared in 1644 in part iv of Frauenzimmer Gesprächspiele. The complete series of eight parts (1642-9) contains 300 works, nine of which include either music or instructions for music, apparently all by Staden. Seelewig is the only one that is through-composed. It is designated as 'in the Italian manner' and is modelled on the school dramas of the 16th and 17th centuries... The recitatives lack the freedom of their Italian counterparts, and the emphasis on strophic songs, a trait still common in J.P. Krieger's operas 50 years later, retards the dramatic movement. The music in the other eight Gesprächspiele consists of one or more strophic songs and instrumental interludes which appear between sections of spoken dialogue." The elder Staden (1581-1634), "was a distinguished and versatile composer, and one of the outstanding German musicians of his day. In his later years he was the leading musician in Nuremberg and established the so-called Nuremberg school of the 17th century." Harold E. Samuel in Grove Music Online.

        La nouvelle fortification

      chez les Elseviers, A Leide 1645 - In folio (mm. 310x210), pp. (14), 224, legatura in piena pergamena coeva. Superbo frontespizio figurato inciso in rame da Adrien Matham con cornice architettonica, veduta a volo d'uccello della città fortificata, allegoria della Guerra circondata da panoplie di armi e vessilli bellici e raffigurazioni di Mercurio e di Ercole. Dedicatoria a Federico Enrico d'Orange e di Nassau. Testatine e iniziali ornate e arabescate. Oltre 90 tavole calcografiche intercalate nel testo. Ex libris di Tycho Wing al contropiatto. Piccolo risarcimento al margine basso del frontespizio, lievissimi aloni secchi di umidità su poche pagine, ma esemplare assai buelle e genuino. Prima edizione francese voltata dal medesimo autore dall'edizione latina, che è di due anni precedente. L'opera è assai significativa nella storia della trattatistica fortificatoria poiché con essa si determina l'affermazione di uno nuovo indirizzo scientifico-matematico negli studi di ingegneria fortificatoria. Bibliografia: Willems, 587; Marini, p.88 "In questa edizione non si trovano aggiunte, ma è peraltro più magnifica di quella del 1643 tanto pel testo, quanto per le figure, ed è ancora più comoda a motivo che le tavole de' calcoli e delle figure sono stampate nelle medesime pagine del testo. Questi elementi contengono la sola parte matematica e puramente descrittiva delle fortificazioni; in essi si rinviene non solo il metodo per calcolare i perimetri, ma ancora la superficie e le solidità delle fortificazioni, accompagnato da una quantità di tavole molto istruttive. Questa è una delle parti più interessanti della scienza fortificatrice, ma dal maggior numero degli scrittori trascurata". Brunet, II, 1650. Graesse, III, 112 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Amsterdami Apud Iohannem et Cornelium Blaeu Anno XXXXI.

      Artist: Blaeu Willem Janszoon (d) ; issued in: Amsterdam; date: (d)1645 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 39 x 24; - description: Titlepage of the 'Theatrum Orbis Terrarum'.; - 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.

        Vite dei dodeci Visconti che signoreggiarono Milano ... Tradotte da Lodovico Domenichi. Et in quest'ultima impressione accresciute

      in casa di Gio. Battista Bidelli, 1645. Pp. (20) 132 [splendida antiporta raffigurante due putti che sorreggono l'insegna milanese, dati tipografici al centro ed aquila con due uomini incatenati alla base; 14 splendidi ritratti incisi in rame a piena pagina, l'ultimo dei quali ripetuto]. Unito a: CAMPO ANTONIO. Historia delle vite de' duchi et duchesse di Milano, con i loro veri ritratti cavati al naturale. In Milano, per Filippo Ghisolfi, 1642. Pp. 32 [con 24 splendidi ritratti incisi in rame n.t.]. Due opere in un volume di cm. 25. Bella legatura primi Novecento in mezza pelle con ampie punte, dorso a 4 nervi von titoli e filetti dorati, carta marmorizzata ai piatti. Abile restauro a p. 55 della prima opera (con superficiale abrasione di qualche lettera nel punto posto a fronte a p. 54, forse per un'antica aderenza delle due carte), qualche abilissimo restauto ai margini bianchi della seconda opera [due cc. rifilate di qualche mm. nel margine basso. Esemplare stampato su carta forte, e, soprattutto per quanto concerne la prima opera, caratterizzato da carta immacolata. Bell'esemplare. Prima opera: Paolo Giovio (1483-1552), celebre storico comasco, va annovarato tra le figure più illustri del Cinquecento italiano. Quest'opera, già tradotta in volgare nel 1558, ricavò un implementato prestigio editoriale grazie a quest'importante apparato iconografico. Cfr. Brunet, III, 584; Graesse, III, 490; Iccu. Seconda opera: Antonio Campo, si ritagliò grande fama per un'importante storia di Cremona scritta nella seconda metà del Cinquecento e di cui questa "Historia delle vite" configura il quarto libro, nonché la seconda parte, tipograficamente autonoma. Rarissimo. Cfr. Graesse, II, 30, per un'edizione erroneamente segnalata 1612 (recte 1642); Lozzi, 2614 n., menziona infatti l'edizione del 1642..

        Della famiglia Fiesca trattato dell'ecc.mo signor Federico Federici

      per Gio Maria Faroni, Genova - 1645 [circa]. In-folio, pp. (8), 203, (5). Con 5 tavole fuori testo di cui 4 doppie. Splendido antiporta disegnato da Domenico Fiasella intagliato poco felicemente da Sébastien Vouillemont. Eleganti fregi e capolettera pavoniani. Legatura in piena pergamena semi-floscia coeva. Esemplare bellissimo. "L'opera venne completata all'inizio del 1645, poiché ricevette l'imprimatur degli inquisitori di Stato il 13 febbraio di quell'anno. Il Federici sosteneva la parentela dei Fieschi con le principali casate d'Italia e d'Europa, facendoli discendere dalle case di Borgogna e di Baviera. L'interesse dello scritto non sta però tanto nello scontato atteggiamento encomiastico, quanto nel fatto che il Federici avesse scelto una casata che a metà del Cinquecento aveva perso il suo ruolo preminente sulla scena cittadina per aver congiurato contro i consorti oligarchi. Il Fedesici concludeva infatti menzionando "l'intemperanza di Gian Luigi . il quale con la vastità di tant'eminente stato non potendo tolerar ch'altri sormontasse con favori stranieri ad uguale e forsi maggior riputatione della sua, temendo di cadere precipitò nel profondo dell'abisso tutte le glorie de' suoi antepassati con la sua infelice morte fatale" (c. 49v). Giustificazione di un'impresa colpita da un secolo (l'uscita del lavoro anticipava di poco il centenario della congiura) da una vera damnatio memoriae, e allusione assai ostile ai Doria: arrivati legati agli stranieri (si legga: agli Spagnoli) che avevano insidiato i genovesissimi Fieschi. Il Federici non mancava neppure di onorare i discendenti dei Fieschi di metà Cinquecento espatriati in Francia, le cui rivendicazioni avrebbero dato pretesto di li a qualche decennio alle ostilità di Luigi XIV verso la Repubblica."

        Honor del Gran Patriarca San Ignacio de Loyola, fundador de la Compania de Jesus, en que se propone su vida, y la de si Discipulo el Apostol de las Indias S. Francisco Xavier. Con la milagrosa historia del admirable Padre Marcelo Mastrilli

      1645 - The life of the Founder of the Society of Jesus, and the first martyrdom of Japan. 1645. Madrid. Maria de Quiñones. Folio. (12), 784, (12). Nineteenth century calf gilt, supralibros to boards with the monogram of the Society of Jesus, lettering pieces to spine, one labeled “1”, possibly bound uniformly at some stage with other works by Nieremberg. Stain to title page, some uniform browning. 3,800 $ First edition. Part of Nieremberg´s set of works and biographies usually gathered as the Varones, each part complete in itself, this is the third part volume in the series, and contains the life of the founder of the Order, as well as plenty material on Japan and South America. It is a compendium of the explorations, travels, discoveries, and evolution of the Jesuits, during the period of their most significant expansion. “This work having been published at different periods during the space of almost a century. The interest of the work, excluding some ‘jesuitical chaff’, is not inferior to its rarity, as it contains accounts of many early voyages to the Indies, not elsewhere to be found” (Sabin). On Japan, it includes the life, missionary work and martyrdom of Father Marcelo Mastrili (1603 - 1637) in Japan on Mount Unzen (outskirts of Nagasaki) under the Tokugawa Shogunate. Mastrili had sailed to Japan with aims of reconverting the “fallen priest” Christovao Ferreira who had renounced his faith. Ferreira (c. 1580 – 1650) was a Portuguese Jesuit missionary, he worked in Japan from 1609 to 1633 and was the head of the Jesuit Order in that country during the religious purges against Christianity in 1633; after being tortured for hours, committed apostasy, subsequently changing his name to Sawano Chuan and registering at a Buddhist temple. Mastrili was arrested shortly after landing - the relation of his travesty towards Japan is also noted-; he was then submitted to torture and beheaded. Mysticism did not elude Mastrili, he reported to having visions of St. Francis Xavier who cured him twice. Furthermore, it contains accounts of missions to Goa, Mindanao and Japan. Subjects include “La celestial vocacion a la mission de la India”, “La apostolica misiondel P. Marcelo en la jornada de Mindanao”, “La entrada en el Japon tormentos y muerte gloriosa”. Other volumes in the series include the “Ideas de virtud en algunos Claros Varones de la Compañia de Jesus”, and the “Firmamento religioso de luzidos Astros. En algunos claros varones de la Compañia de Jesus, cumplense en este tomo, y en el antecedente una centuria entera”. Sabin, 55271. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Count Tilly

      , May 15, 1645. May 15, 1645. Although the famous Count Tilly, Johann Tserklaes, was successful and enjoyed the good graces of the Habsburg Empire, his son was not so lucky. Only thirteen years after the death of the elder Count Tilly, the younger had run up a string of debts to the Habsburg government. In this letter, he pleas for clemency from a Habsburg deputy. He protests that he cannot pay his current taxes, let alone the interest on unpaid army, beer, and land taxes. Here, a man whose father gave his life for the empire could not come up with the money to pay its presumably excessive taxes. He blames his inability to pay on an unnamed enemy and promises to pay as soon as he can. This is a story that gets left out of most histories of the Habsburg Empire. Minor spotting does not affect the text of the letter and the seal is well-preserved. Written in German, the letter is accompanied by a notarized translation.

Four series of models for architectural ornament, bound together in contemporary vellum. Ad 1: First printing from the Danckerts plates of a series of ornamental designs for altars and chimney-pieces, richly and beautifully executed with decorative carvings, sculpture and paintings in the influential styles popular in France under Louis XIII. In 1630 Jean Barbet, draughtsman and engraver, signed a two-year contract with the publisher Melchior Tavernier to make the drawings for the present series. Tavernier published it at Paris in 1633, engraved by Abraham Bosse. Cornelis Danckerts copied the series in mirror image.Ad 2: Paris edition, with imprint "Rousel exc.", of a beautiful series of large ornamental cartouches, originally designed by Agostino Mitelli, Italian architect and engraver. The present Paris edition has 16 plates, all containing cartouches. Ad 3: Two series of very refined and beautiful cartouches, but instead of blank cartouches as in ad 2, these all surround beautifully engraved scenes. They are printed from the plates of the first edition in their second state. The first series puts more emphasis on people and their activities within the landscape, and the second on the often mountainous landscapes themselves. Some of the cartouches are fantastic and bizarre, with sometimes grotesque real and imaginary creatures, such as the elephant heads in plate 1 of the first series, their trunks curling around to form the lower corners of the cartouche. Daniel Rabel, French artist and engraver, also published model series of costumes, birds and insects. His present cartouches are fine examples of style and fashion in Louis XIII's France. From the library of Lunsingh Scheurleer. In very good condition, with only an occasional minor smudge or marginal stain, and with ample margins. The boards are somewhat bowed and the vellum slightly stained, but the binding is generally also very good. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Myles Standish

      March 13, [1645]. An unusually ornate and fine content manuscript Document Signed by approximately 74 individuals, mostly with marks, together with vellum strips affixed to the bottom (some adorned with additional manuscript) and many bearing small wax seals, one page, 22.5" x 17" with scallop top, Duxbury, Lancashire, March 13, [1645]. Extremely light toning at expected folds, majority of text quite bright and distinct. <br /><br />Richard Standish (1620 - 1662) English politician who sat in the House of Commons for Preston from 1659 - 60. Richard was the son of Thomas Standish (c. 1593 - 1642) who sat in Parliament for Preston during the Short Parliament of 1640 and in the Long Parliament until 1642. Standish, who lived at Duxbury Manor in Lancashire, was very possibly a relative of Myles Standish, one of the founders of Plymouth Colony in 1620.<br /><br />An unusual document in which the approximately seventy named individuals, residents of Duxbury, Chorley, Heath Charnock, collectively sell their lands and homes to Richard Standish for the sum of £1000. The document appears to be part of Standish's consolidation of control over Duxbury Manor which had been in the hands of his father Thomas Standish, who died around 1642.<br /><br />Much is known and has been written concerning the life of Myles Standish (c. 1584 - 1656) after he became associated with the English Separatists (i.e. Pilgrims) who founded the colony of Plymouth in 1620. However, very little is known about Standish's early life including his place of birth, and for nearly two centuries, this question has been been the subject of scholarly debate. The little we know about Standish's origins come from his will, drafted in 1656, in which he granted to his "son & heire apparent Alexander Standish all my lands as heire apparent by lawfull decent in Ormskirke Borscouge Wrightington Maudsley Newburrow Crowston and in the Isle of man and given to mee as Right heire by lawfull decent but Surruptuously detained from mee My great Grandfather being a 2cond or younger brother from the house of Standish of Standish."(Charles H. Simmons, Jr., Plymouth Colony Records, Volume 1, Wills and Inventories 1633-1669 ,Camden, ME: Picton Press, 1996, 312-314) Of all the places named, one is on the Isle of Man while the remaining are places in Lancashire where a branch of the Standish family resided, centered at Duxbury Hall. A short passage written by Plymouth Colony's secretary, Nathaniel Morton notes a similar origin for Standish, noting he "...was a gentleman, born in Lancashire, and was heir apparent unto a great estate of lands and livings, surreptitiously detained from him; his great grandfather being a second or younger brother from the house of Standish…" (Nathaniel Morton, New England's Memorial, Boston: Congregational Board of Publication, 1855, 6th ed., 170). Unfortunately, that is all that is known about his origins. However, the fact that Standish founded the town of Duxbury in Plymouth Colony would suggest that his origins were indeed from Lancashire and not the Isle of Man. It is not known whether Alexander Standish (1626 - 1702) ever pursued these claims. <br />

        Anatomical Print-REPRODUCTIVE ORGAN-VAGINA-URINAL TRACT-Spigelius-Casserius-1645

      - Very rare anatomical print. Plate, Lib. VIII, Tab. XVII. Plate, showing various images (including cross-sections) of the female abdomen and reproductive organ. As the key to this plate(s) is on the rear of previous plate, as issued, a copy of this key is included when applicable. Copperplate engraving on a verge type handlaid paper. Description: This very fine engraving originates from 'Anatomica operum omnium' by Adrianus Spigelius (Adriaan van den Spiegel), published by J. Blaeu, Amsterdam 1645. This splendidly produced edition of Spigelius' Collected Works was edited by the Dutch physician, Johannes Antonides van der Linden. This folio volume is illustrated with 117 anatomical plates. 78 Of these plates originate from Casserius, intended to illustrate his 'Theatrum Anatomicum', a great anatomical atlas that was still unpublished at his death in 1616. The remainder of the plates was prepared by Bucretius. The complete set of plates is seen as the most important anatomical illustration of the post-Vesalian period, and among the finest produced in the seventeenth century. Since before 1600 Casserius had been working on a fully-illustrated anatomical treatise, which he hired Fialetti to illustrate. His "De Vocis" of 1601 concludes with a promise to publish a treatise on the anatomy of the whole human body with illustrations. However, at the time of his early death in 1616 Casserio left 86 spectacular anatomical drawings by Fialetti, and also possibly their engravings, but no text. Casserius and the co-author of this work, Adrian van der Spiegel, both studied under Fabricius ab Aquapendente (Fabrici) at the University of Padua. Both worked closely with their teacher for many years, and in 1608 Casserius succeeded Fabrici in Padua's chair of surgery and anatomy, which passed in turn to Spiegel upon Casserius' death in 1616. Spiegel (Spigelius) (1578-1625) wrote an unillustrated treatise on anatomy that remained unpublished during his lifetime; in his will he appointed Daniel Bucretius (ne Rindfleisch) to see the work into print. To illustrate Spiegel's treatise, Bucretius obtained 77 of Fialetti's original 86 anatomical plates from the heirs of Casserius (probably engraved by J. Maurer), and commissioned 20 more by Fialetti and engraved by Valesio to complete the series (the remaining 9 plates left by Casserius were used to illustrate Spiegel's De Formato Foetu [1626]), which are part of this work. In the complete series, the largest number of plates, forty-three - and these perhaps the most memorable - are to be found in Liber IV, on the muscles. There are also interesting illustrations on the genito-urinary system in Liber VIII and on the brain in Liber X-one of these, showing the arterial circle at the brain, predates the Willis-Wren illustration [from Willis's Cerebri Anatome (1664)]. Except for those few plates which were derived from Vesalius, the anatomists had reconsidered ways of presenting human anatomy. In doing so they produced the first original series of illustrations of the anatomy of the human body since Vesalius. *Ref: Roberts & Tomlinson: The Fabric of the Body, pp. 262-63; see also pp. 259-61; Cazort, Kornell, Roberts: The Ingenious Machine of Nature: Four Centuries of Art and Anatomy (1996) pp. 167-68; Choulant-Frank 225; Garrison-Morton 381; Heirs of Hippocrates 414; NLM/Krivatsy 2202; 11297 (citing Casserio's and Spiegel's works separately); Sappol, Dream Anatomy pp. 110-111, 113; Waller 9121 and 1812.Artists and Engravers: Authors: Adriaan van den Spiegel, name sometimes written as Adrianus Spigelius (1578-1625) was a Flemish anatomist who was born in Brussels. For much of his career he practiced medicine in Padua, and is considered one of the great physicians associated with that city. He became professor of Anatomy in 1615, succeeding J. Casserius. At Padua he studied anatomy under Girolamo Fabrizio (1537-1619) and Julius Casserius (Giulio Casseri: 1552?1616). His best written work on anatomy is De humani
