      1680 - Oxford: Moses Pitt, 1680. Coloured. 460 x 590mm. A few small repairs, pinholes in crest. A scarce map of the Arctic Circle, with the title on a curtain, with portraits of Lapplanders and a whaling scene. On the map the mythical island of Frisland is marked, as is a strait through Greenland, placed there instead of Canada by Martin Frobisher, who had been confused by the non-existence of Frisland. Further west the discoveries of the English explorers looking for the North West Passage are shown. Bottom left are the arms of Charles FitzCharles (1657-80), the son of Charles II, which consists of his father's arms with a baton sinister vair overall, signifying illegitimacy. He died of dysentery defending Tangier, which had been part of his father's dowry when marrying the Portuguese princess Catherine of Braganza in 1662.

      London: Walter Davis Book-binder, 1680 A very good copy of the 1st edition of Robert Filmer's important political work on government. Robert Filmer (c1588-1653) was a political theorist and is best known for Patriarcha which was probably begun in 1620, but was not published until after his death. His thesis on the right of kings, initially well-regarded, was taken apart by John Locke and came in for considerable criticism. It is now seen as an important work, which set the framework for debate on forms of government. This copy has been newly rebound in half leather with marbled boards and with title label to spine. New endpapers have been added and the frontispiece, which was missing, added in facsimile. Contents: title page; copy of a letter by Peter Heylyn 5pp; contents list 5pp; errata 1p; text pp 1-141 Finis.

         Amsterdam, Dam, demonstratie brandspruit Jan van der Heijden - ca. 1680.

      DEMONSTRATIE VAN DE BRANDSPRUIT OP DE DAM TE AMSTERDAMEts vervaardigd rond 1680 door Jan van Vianen (ca. 1660 ? na 1726) naar het ontwerp van Jan van der Heijden (1637 ? 1712). Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 47,5 x 56,5 cm.Eeuwenlang was het blussen van branden een kwestie van lange rijen mensen, die emmers water aan elkaar doorgaven. Pas toen het stadhuis van Amsterdam op 7 juli 1652 afbrandde, werd er een nieuw tijdperk ingeluid. De stad schafte kort daarop 58 handbrandspuiten aan. De toen 15-jarige jongeman Jan Goriszoon van der Heijden was getuige van de brand. Het gevolg van de aanwezigheid van Jan van der Heijden werd pas later merkbaar, maar klonk door tot in de geschiedenisboeken.Een eerste omwenteling bracht Van der Heijden te weeg door in november 1668 het stadsbestuur voor te stellen om door de hele stad openbare straatverlichting aan te brengen. Hij deed zijn voorstel ?om bij duystere nachten de gehele stad met lichten te voorzien, om te verhoeden het verongelucken van veele menschen, die bij duysternis in ?t water vallen ende versmoren ... om huysbraken te ontdecken ende moetwille te weren, ende dan oock om bij brant allome licht bij de hand te hebben?. De stad plaatste vervolgens 2500 door Van der Heijden ontworpen straatlantaarns die dagelijks door een organisatie van lantaarnopstekers ontstoken en gedoofd werden.Belangrijker nog was Van der Heijdens verbetering van de brandweerpomp in 1672. Aan de toen in gebruik zijnde tobbe met spuitmond werden een ?zuigpomp? en lederen brandslangen toegevoegd. Het benodigde water kon daarmee direct uit de gracht opgezogen worden (als filter tegen het vuil diende een gevlochten mandje), terwijl de brandslangen de spuitgasten in staat stelden het vuur gericht te bestrijden.Al kort na de invoering van deze verbeteringen werden de zuigpomp en de brandspuit gecombineerd tot een enkel apparaat. De dubbele pompwerking had een ?dood? moment tot gevolg, halverwege de slag. Om dit op te vangen werd al snel een extra drukvat aangebracht. Met de daarin opgebouwde druk werd de waterstraal gevoed tijdens het dode moment van de pomp, waardoor de spuit een constante waterstraal produceerde. Op deze vinding verkreeg Van der Heijden in 1677 patent.De Amsterdamse burgemeesters waren onder de indruk en in elk van de zestig stadswijken werd een nieuwe spuit opgesteld. Deze werden bediend door aangewezen gildenbroeders en vrijwilligers uit de buurt. Elke spuit kreeg een vast aantal functionarissen en ??n ? twee keer per jaar werd er verplicht geoefend onder toezicht van de generaal-brandmeester. De eerste functionaris met die titel was Jan van der Heijden zelf.De spuit, die aanvankelijk naar de brand werd gedragen, werd later voorzien van wielen.Van der Heijden was naast uitvinder ook zeer verdienstelijk schilder en tekenaar. Als schilder is hij vooral beroemd geworden om zijn fraaie stadsgezichten met een ongekend waarheidsgetrouwe topografie. Zijn tekentalenten werden vooral ook gebruikt voor de instructies en reclameplaten voor de brandspuiten. Bovengenoemde prent is daarvan een schitterend. Zijn werk is te zien in het Rijksmuseum, het Louvre en in andere grote musea.Prijs: ?2.650,-.

         Empresas Morales. Sacalas a la luz el Doctor Don Francisco de Borja su Nieto. Dedicalas a la S.C.R.M. del Rey Don Carlos II nuestro Señor.

      En Brusselas, por Francisco Foppens, 1680. - in-4. Titre gravé. 4ff. 455pp. 2ff. Plein vélin postérieur, titre inscrit à l'encre au dos. Première édition espagnole de ce fameux livre d'emblèmes par le militaire, diplomate et homme d'Etat espagnol Juan de Borja y Castro (1533-1606), fils de Saint François de Borgia. Parue en latin en 1581, l'édition originale avait vu le jour à Prague, où l'auteur était ambassadeur d'Espagne. L'ouvrage est richement illustré de 220 planches d'emblèmes gravées, en regard desquelles figurent des notices où sont explicitées les implications morales et philosophiques des emblèmes, dans une langue aux accents poétiques. Le frontispice et les emblèmes furent gravés par Richard Collin (1626-1687), graveur du roi Charles II d'Espagne à Bruxelles. "Juan de Borja fue el primero en España en publicar un libro de Empresas, cuando la ingeniosidad todavía no era el objetivo principal de la literatura. Él está en los inicios de un género -anteriormente muy difundido en Italia- que durante un siglo en España va a tener continuadores" (Bravo-Villasante) Brunissure généralisée du papier, plusieurs feuillets réparés sans manque. Praz, 282. Palau, 33113: "Bella impresión en gran papel". A propos de R. Collin, voir Benézit, I, 986. Sur Borja, cf. Carmen Bravo-Villasante "La literatura emblematica, las Empresas Morales de Juan de Borja". [Attributes: First Edition]
