         Traité des Tourbes Combustibles.

      A Paris, chez Jean du Bray et Pierre Variquet, 1663. - in-4. Portrait. 9ff. 122pp. 3ff. Demi-veau, dos lisse orné (reliure du 18e siècle). Edition Originale du premier ouvrage français sur la tourbe que l'auteur proposait d'utiliser comme alternative économique au bois de chauffage ou à la houille. Inspiré par les observations qu'il avait faites à l'étranger, et notamment en Hollande, Charles Patin (1633-1693) avait formé le projet d'établir une exploitation de tourbe dans les environs de Paris. L'ouvrage contient à la fin un Brevet du Roy énumérant les avantages de la tourbe comme combustible, et l'entreprise aurait peut-être prospéré si en 1666 l'auteur n'avait dû quitter la France précipitamment pour échapper à une condamnation aux galères à perpétuité, prononcée pour une affaire de traffic de livres interdits. Le volume est illustré d'un beau portrait de l'auteur gravé par Lefébure, habituellement placé dans le corps du texte mais qui fut inséré ici en regard du titre comme un frontispice (peut-être à l'époque de la reliure). Précieux exemplaire offert par l'auteur à son ami le médecin Augustin Goguet, avec l'envoi autographe suivant: "Viro Clarissimo D. D. Augustuno Goguet Doctori Medico affini suo, in gratam autoris amicitia recordationibus hoc munusculum offert". Petits manques dans les marges du portrait, qui a été monté sur un onglet. Bon exemplaire par ailleurs. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

      - Amsterdam, Gillis Joosten Saeghman, 1663.4to. Old wrappers. With large woodcut on title-page, full-page woodcut by C.S. Vichem on verso of title-page and 16 fine woodcuts in text (15 within two ornamental woodcut side borders). 52 pp.First edition published in 1598. - Classic account of the three earliest Dutch exploration voyages (1594, 1595, 1596) in search of a northeast passage by Willem Barentsz, two in company with Jan Huygen van Linschoten, the celebrated traveler to the East. The author, Gerrit de Veer, had taken part in the second and third voyage. During the third voyage Barendsz and his crew members were iced in and forced to winter over in Novaya Zemlya in a wooden cabin ('Het behouden Huis'). Trapped from August 26, 1596, to June 14, 1597, they were finally able to sail in open boats some 1600 miles during which they battled continuously against marauding polar bears and pack ice. Barendsz had taken ill and died five days after their escape from the arctic wastes. In 1871 the expedition's winter quarters were found along with many artifacts. Though a northeast passage was not found, the expeditions were considerable successful for the discovery of Spitsbergen in 1596 and for their reports of the abundance of right whales off Spitsbergen, encouraging the start of Dutch arctic whaling. A major work of Arctic exploration and the Dutch quest for a Northeast passage to the Orient. Pp. 51-52 contains: Journael van Herry Hutson, gedaen in den iare 1609 op het believen van de bewint-hebberen van de Oost-Indische Geoctroyeerde Compagnie uytgesonden, om de passagie by het noort-oosten . om naer China te soeken (Landwehr, VOC, 355). In 1609 Henry Hudson was chosen by merchants of the Dutch East India Company (VOC) to find an easterly passage to Asia with the ship Halve Maen. He could not complete the specified eastward route because ice blocked the passage, as with all previous such voyages, and he turned the ship around in mid-May while somewhere east of Norway's North Cape. At that point, acting outside his instructions, Hudson pointed the ship west and decided to try to seek a westerly passage through North America. - (Browned, lower side title-page cut short with loss of some words). - Rare.Tiele 1135; Cf.

         Nogle betenkninger om det Cimbriske sprog ved P. P. Syv.

      - Köpenhamn, 1663. 8:o. Grav. titelblad,+ (8),+ 200 s. Småfläckar, enstaka understrykningar med bläck, det graverade titelbladet vikt nedtill för att få plats. Nött samtida pergamentband på träpärmar, med stänk på pärmarna, svårläst namnteckning på frampärmen och något trasig i övre kapitäl. Ur C. H. Braads bibliotek, med hans namnteckning, daterad Uppsala 1744, och ur Ericsbergs bibliotek, med Carl Jedvard Bondes exlibris. Bibl. Danica IV, sp. 60. Thesaurus 677. Reinhardt 10. Med det mycket fina illustrerade allegoriska titelbladet. Det första danska arbetet i jämförande språkvetenskap, och introduktionen av danska som ett litterärt språk. Peder Syv (1631-1702) brukar kallas för Danmarks förste språkvetare. Han betraktade, liksom Stiernhielm svenskan, cimbriskan, i vilken han inbegrep danska, svenska, gotiska, slaviska etc, som ett av världens äldsta språk, direkt kommet från hebreiskan och äldre en grekiska och latin. ?In this remarkable little book, with its curious title page, Syv defends the use of the Danish languages in literature. To demonstrate the strencht of his native Danish tongue, Syv cites the accomplishments of important uthors writing in Danish. . for example Huitfeldt, Skonning, Arrebok Bordin, and Pontoppidan.? (Reinhardt). Ostindiefararen Christopher Henrik Braad (1728-81) var en framstående litterär samlare med ett stort bibliotek i historia och antikviteterna.

         L'Histoire et la politique de l'auguste maison d'Austriche.

      Paris, Etienne Loyson, 1653 (1663), - 3 parties en un vol. in-4, [19] ff. n. ch. (titre, table des chapitres, dédicaces - avec interversions de feuillets entre les dédicaces à la Reine, à la Reine-mère et au Roi -, avant-propos), [280] pp. mal chiffrées 300 (il y a saut de chiffrage de 79 à 98, puis de 184 à 187, sans manque) ; 120 pp. ; 104 pp., demi-veau blond, dos à nerfs orné de filets dorés, pièce de titre cerise, tranches mouchetées (rel. du XIXe s.). Rousseurs et des mouillures claires, restauration de papier sans manque au dernier feuillet, mais bon exemplaire. En dépit de la date de 1653 au titre, on a affaire à un exemplaire de la seconde édition de 1663 (la dédicace à la reine Marie-Thérèse est impossible à la première date) : Du Bosc de Montandré (mort en 1690) est plus connu comme pamphlétaire au service du Prince de Condé, et par ses nombreuses mazarinades aux violents relents démocratiques. Mais il dut s'exiler en 1652 avec son protecteur, ne rentra en France qu'avec lui, après la paix des Pyrénées, et dut dès lors vivre un peu de sa plume. D'où la nouvelle édition de cet ouvrage en 1663 ; il s'agit au demeurant d'une compilation qui relève plus de la flatterie sur les origines habsbourgeoises des deux reines, que d'un travail approfondi. Absent de Cioranescu.

         Nogle Betenkninger om det Cimbriske Sprog.

      Kiøbenh. (i.e. Copenhagen), 1663. 8vo. Contemporary full vellum with handwritten title to spine. Nice and tight with little wear. Einar Christiansen's book plate to inside of front board. (10), 200 pp. With the wonderful woodcut illustrated title-page with 11 lovely illustrations allegorically depicting the different chapters. WITH A DATED (1676) ORIGINAL SIGNATURE OF PEDER PEDERSEN SYV INSERTED TO FRONT FREE END-PAPER. The very rare first edition of the first Danish work of comparative linguistics and the first Danish work on comparative history of literature. The work is of seminal importance to the development of the Danish language as the accepted official and written language of Denmark. The seminal philological treatise constituted a programmatic defense of vernacular national languages and Syv is hereby responsible for introducing Danish in a wider spectrum of social domains and to establish a notion of Danish literature as accepted in its own right. Up until Syv, Latin and German were the learned languages of Denmark and the languages used for all matter of official business. But just as Dante had done with Italian, Peder Syv, with the present work, began the quest of making Danish a language also respected for written literature.The Cimbrian language included Scandinavian, Gothic, Slavic, German, and partly English and Russian, and Syv regarded it as one of the oldest tongues in the world, coming from Hebrew and older than Greek and Latin. He refused to view it as originally German. "Peder Syv is sometimes referred to as "the fist Danish grammarian." In this remarkable little book, with its curious illustrated title-page, Syv defends the use of the Danish language in literature. To demonstrate the strength of his native danish tongue, Syv cites the accomplishments of important authors writing in Danish... for example, Huitfeldt, Skonning, Arrebo, Bording, and Pontoppidan."

      Amsterdam 1663 - Opera tratta dal "Theatrum Civitatum et admirandorum Italiae", pubblicato ad Amsterdam nel 1663; testo descrittivo al verso. Johannes Blaeu, durante la sua lunga attività editoriale pubblica tre volumi sulle città italiane. Nel 1663 i primi tre, suddivisi in Stato della Chiesa, Roma e Regno di Napoli e Sicilia. Alla sua morte i suoi eredi danno alla luce altri due volumi datati 1682 incentrati sulle città del Piemonte e della Savoia, poi ristmapti da altri editori nel 1693 e 1697. Il francese Pierre Mortier pubblica una ristampa nel 1704/5, intitolata "Nouveau Theatre de l’Italie". L’opera è in quattro volumi e comprende le lastre del Blaeu, ritoccate e modificate in piccola parte, integrate dall’aggiunta di numerose nuove mappe di proprio disegno, raffiguranti le città della parte settentrionale della penisola, racchiuse nel primo volume dell’opera. L’atlante del Mortier venne pubblicato con testo latino, francese ed olandese. La particolarità che differenzia le due edizioni di Blaeu e Mortier è rappresentata dal fatto che il testo non è al verso della singola mappa (che quindi è bianca nel retro), ma si trova all’inizio di ogni singolo volume. Il grande successo dell’opera diede origine ad un’ulteriore ristampa, praticamente identica, curata da R. Alberts ed edita nel 1724/5. Le opere tratte dalla prima edizione del Blaeu, 1663, sono caratterizzate dalla presenza del testo al verso e sono piuttorsto rare. Incisione in rame, in buono stato di conservazione. Bibliografia: Koeman pp. 332/338. Bird's-eye view of the city, taken from the "Theatrum Civitatum et admirandorum Italia". First edition of this famous map, descriptive text on verso. The plate was later withdrawn by Mortier in the two editions of 1705 and 1724.Copperplate, in good conditions. Literature: Koeman, Bl. 72, pp. 332/338. Rare. Dimensioni 540 445mm
