Descrizione libro: 1652. book. Utrecht, 1652. 4to, original full calf with gilt decorated spine, hinges cracked; 2 parts in one: first part with half title, engraved title, frontis. portrait of Fredrick Hendrick, pp. (iii)+276+ (6) (binder's instructions); 2nd part, half title, +216 + (4) (binder's instructions) 34 engravings. Hinges cracked, library stamp in preliminaries. A very fine book describing the life and naval & military campaigns waged by Fredrick Hendrick Van Nassau, Prince of Orange, and illustrated with copper engravings depicting the various battles and sieges involved in the struggle to control the wealth of South America, and the war in the Netherlands against Spanish dominion. On the death of his brother Maurice in 1625, Frederick Henry succeeded him in the stadtholderates of the five provinces of Holland, Zeeland, Utrecht, Overijssel and Guelders, and in the important posts of captain and admiral-general of the Union. Frederick Henry proved himself almost as good a general as his brother, and a far more capable statesman and politician. For twenty-two years he remained at the head of government in the United Provinces, and in his time the power of the stadtholderate reached its highest point. The 'Period of Frederick Henry,' as it is usually styled by Dutch writers, is generally accounted the golden age of the republic. It was marked by great military and naval triumphs, by world-wide maritime and commercial expansion, and by a wonderful outburst of activity in the domains of art and literature. The chief military exploits of Frederick Henry were the sieges and captures of Grol in 1627, 's-Hertogenbosch in 1629, of Maastricht in 1632, of Breda in 1637, of Sas van Gent in 1644, and of Hulst in 1645. During the greater part of his administration the alliance with France against Spain was the pivot of Frederick Henry's foreign policy. Also mentioned in this volume is the Dutch Admiral and folk hero Pieter Pietersen Hein (November 25, 1577- June 18, 1629). In 1623, he became vice-admiral of the new Dutch West India Company (WIC) and sailed to the West Indies the following year. In Brazil, he briefly captured the Portuguese settlement of Salvador, personally leading the assault on the sea fortress of that town. Then he attacked Luanda in Angola but failed to capture the city. In a subsequent raid in 1627 to retake Bahia, he failed but captured over thirty Portuguese ships with a large cargo of sugar. He also captured half of the Spanish treasure fleet in Matanzas Bay, Cuba and the resulting booty funded the Dutch army and allowed the subsequent capture of the town of S'Hertogenbosch.

Descrizione libro: 1644 (Tiele Memoire nr 2; Muller 1872 nr 1871)2 Vols, in quarto, oblongContemporary, full calfThe texts, bound in, do not have title pages except for books I and II.The plates, bound in, are NOT included in the page numbering, and have no text in verso.Rebound in contemporary calf. Minor damage to some leaves and plates. Normal wear and tear. Some plates may have come from another copy to improve the overall quality of the book. One plate (Kandy) certainly is from another book as it is printed in reverse. Set is overall in good condition.* This collection, normally found in its 1646 Amsterdam imprint is "one of the most valuable collections (of voyages) ever made in any language" (Muller 1872). It is rare as it is (three copies registered in world cat). The present edition, preceding the 1646 one with two years, is distinct in many ways from the 1646 edition is extremely rare. Muller states: "have seen only one single copy, sold to mr Stevens in 1867""La premiere edition du receuil de Commelin, don’t nous n avons jamais vu qu un seul exemplaire ne contient ni les titles imprimers, ni l introduction ni les tables qui se trouvent dans les editions de 1645 & 1646" (Tiele, Memoire .)This first, or maybe proof print of the Commelin consists of 22 books. Comparing with the 1646 edition it contains two extra voyages: Drake & Raleigh and one voyage less: Hagenaar. It contains 26 voyages and about 100 minor voyages as inserts or appendices. The text is on 927 leaves, not counting the (unnumbered) 233 plates and maps. Compared with the 1646, this early imprint lacks the two title pages the introduction and the index. Voyages first published in the Commelin, that is Both (book VIII); van Hagen (book X); Harmansen (book XI), and van Caerden (book XVI), are published here for the VERY FIRST TIME.Significance of the Commelin collectionThe Commelin fits into the tradition of editing collections of voyages of discovery that started with Montalboddo in 1507, and passed through Grynaeus (Huttich, 1532); Ramusio (1556), de Bry (from 1590 onwards) and Hulsius (from 1598 onwards). Some of these collections restrict themselves to the role of one country: Peter Martyr: Spain; de Barros: Portugal; Eden: England; Commelin: Holland. These collections have helped survive many original sources that else would have been lost. On the other hand it is important not to read the history of discovery and colonization from these often quoted collections only. Many times original journaelen have been shortened and modified by the editor. The prints and maps tell their own story, between the original drawings, and the copies found in the collection. Finally there is a rich story of intertwining of texts; prints and maps between different editions also between different countries.The Commelin is important first and foremost as source and testimony of the early Dutch voyages to the East and the West (circa 1590-1640). The Dutch were late to enter the field which had been occupied by Portugal for 150 years (Africa and Asia) and Spain for a 100 years (Americas, Far East). The purpose was trade and profit. There was little in terms of Christianization in these first 50 years. Discoveries were limited. The most important ones were the exploration of the NE passage, the discovery of Australia (1606 and later); Cape Horn (1616) and the new crossing of the Indian Ocean. Shortly after the period described the exploration of Southern Australia; the discovery of New Zealand and the land North of Japan were added.Most journals are reprints closely following their first editions elsewhere. Isaac Commelin is known to have collected these early, Dutch voyages with the aim of editing them as a collection. Five journals however are published here for the first time (nr 8: Both; nr 10: van Hagen; nr XI Harmansen;nr XVI: van Caerden; nr 22: Schram).The collection is a treasure trove for research on the early Dutch voyages to the East. It contains for example narratives of all the vo. Codice libro della libreria 790

Descrizione libro: [Joannes Janssonius], Amsterdam, 1646. Twenty-one parts in two volumes, oblong quarto (245 x 188 mm.); with 195 full page and 4 double page or folded plates, 25 full page and 6 double page or folded maps; a few repairs on edges of plates, one plate trimmed close at right-hand margin losing plate number and 20 mm. of edge detail, repair to blank margin of first title-page; a fine and solid set in overlapping modern vellum. A handsome set of this important work of Dutch East India Company voyages and discoveries, which is considered "the most important Dutch collection of travel literature published during the seventeenth century" (Lach, Asia in the making of Europe). The whole work is generously illustrated with beautiful maps and plates in the finest tradition of Dutch book illustration.Many of the voyage accounts included are in fact published here for the first time, including the second voyage of van Neck (1600-1604), and both voyages of van der Hagen (1599-1601; 1603-1606). An important inclusion is an account of the first voyage of van Neck and van Warwijck (1598-1600), now most famous as being the first voyage of Willem Jansz, who would make the first recorded landfall on the Australian mainland in 1605.In fact Jansz and the small Dutch ship the Duyfken, both separately and together, feature in four of the 21 component narratives that make up the book: these references to the slightly chronicled ship represent the only original printed sources for the sketchy history that we have of the earliest discoveries made in the Australian continent. Several images of the Dutch fleets described in the narratives include depictions of the comparatively slight jacht, crewed by just twenty men or so and a fraction of the size of the great storeships and battleships that she accompanied as a fast scout.This collection is an essential source for the history of early Pacific exploration as well as for the development of the East Indies. The enormous work - it contains more than 1600 pages of text - was compiled by Isaac Commelin and published in Amsterdam by Jansson, one of the leading Amsterdam publishers who specialised in navigational and cartographical material. It represents the raw material for any research on Dutch exploration of trading routes, and on the history of the Dutch voyages to the East Indies, and therefore by extension to the voyages probing towards Australia. Complete sets are scarce on the market and this first edition is rare, especially in decent condition. There are two issues of the first edition differing only in the date on the title-pages: 1645 or 1646, the latter being much the more usual and applying to all five copies located by Trove, at the National Library, the State Libraries of NSW and Victoria, and the Universities of Monash and Western Australia.C.R. Boxer has speculated (in his Introduction to a modern facsimile of the book) that Commelin must have obtained his material from a person either belonging to or closely connected with the VOC, and that some of it may have come to him clandestinely. In general terms the Dutch, like other nations still seeking profitable discoveries, tended to conceal rather than publish their voyages. As Boxer also points out, about half of the material is completely new in this first edition, while some of the other accounts appear in Dutch for the first time, having been previously printed in some other language.Several later editions followed and many of the individual narratives were picked up by other publishers to appear in subsequent anthologies. The scope of the book is tremendous, and clearly overwhelmed English translators and publishers, who could manage only a hugely abbreviated summary in English, published as a single octavo volume.A full list of the voyages is given below as they appear in the two volumes. Those marked with an asterisk are published for the first time in this collection.ContentsVolume I: Engraved title, title, 11 leaves, (introduction by Commelin).1. Voyages to the North (Nova Z.

Uniform contemporary or near contemporary blind-tooled vellum, sewn on 6 double cords, with a large scrollwork centrepiece in a panel of fillets, blue sprinkled edges. With gold-tooled cornerpieces, flowers in the spine compartments, gold fillets and morocco spine labels added in the 18th-century. Ties lacking. First editions of two complementary works, in matching format, similar layout and beautifully and extensively illustrated, devoted to the lives, history and military careers of the three most important stadtholders and Princes of Orange to the time of publication, including a great deal of information on the Dutch conquests, trade and commerce in the Americas in general and Brazil in particular. In the present copy the engraved title-pages, portraits, coat of arms and illustrations are all beautifully coloured by a contemporary hand, most of them highlighted in gold. Truusje Goedings, expert in 17th-century Dutch colourists, has identified the colouring as the work of Frans Koerten (1603-1668), the most acclaimed Dutch colourist of the middle of the 17th century.The three protagonists are William the Silent of Nassau (1533-1584), leader of the Dutch revolt against Spain and spiritual father of the independent Dutch Republic that took form soon after his assassination, and his two sons Maurits (Maurice) (1567-1625) and Frederick Hendrik (1584-1647) who succeeded him as Princes of Orange and Dutch head of State. While William the Silent was almost universally admired in the Dutch Republic, some feared his almost royal descendants might return it to the yoke of monarchy while others revered them almost like kings. Both books appeared only three years after Frederik Hendrik's death and only about a year after the birth of his grandson William of Orange, who was eventually to follow them as Prince of Orange and Dutch head of state before he added the English crown to his titles as King William III.Ad 1. A lavishly illustrated work on the life and military career of Frederik Hendrik of Nassau, Prince of Orange, Dutch Stadtholder from 1625 to his death in 1647. It gives an ample account of the events of this period in the Dutch colonies and possessions in America. Among these are the conquest of Brazil and Piet Hein's capture of the Spanish Silver Fleet off the coast of Cuba, illustrated with. Codice libro della libreria G63GWWNZPOJC
