The second part describes the first Dutch voyage by way of the Cape of Good Hope under the command of Houtman (1595-96).

Descrizione libro: Jean-Baptiste Machuel le jeune c. 1725., Rouen, 1725. 19th-century ¼ green calf with matching marble boards (specially done for Pierre Margry), spine in six compartments of raised gilt bands and gilt floral motifs, red morocco labels on two and four, gilt lettering on six, all edges tinted red, marbled endpapers renewed. , This is a later edition of the French reissue of the account of early Dutch voyages published in 1608 by Commelin, as edited by Renneville in 1702-6. Complete in itself and does not include the supplementary 2-volume Voyage de Gautier Schouten aux Indes Orientales, because it was not published with the Machuel edition (Sabin: ?This edition was printed in larger type, and contains some additions, with more maps and plates. It does not include Gautier Schouten?s voyage?). The Dutch were engaged in searching for the most efficient sea route to the East Indies, including a ?North-East Passage? to the north of Russia. It includes interesting accounts of the early exploring expeditions to the northeast of Europe, between 1591 and 1595. It describes several voyages, including the famous wintering in Nova Zembla. Another part describes the first Dutch voyage by way of the Cape of Good Hope under the command of Houtman (1595-96). Upon their successful return with spices from the East Indies, the Dutch focussed all their fleets on the south-eastern route over the next few years, resulting in the formation of the Dutch East India Company in 1602. With regards to the first English edition (1703), Hill writes, ?Renneville was a French-born professor of religion in Holland; he completed this work prior to his eleven-year imprisonment (1702-1713) in the Bastille for allegedly having criminal correspondence with foreigners. Following his release, Renneville wrote a scathing account of his term in the most famous of French prisons, as well as expanding this work on East-India Company voyages to ten volumes, several published posthumously.?Provenance of Pierre Margry, an important 19th-century French archivist and historian. The spines bear his name in gilt lettering. Booklabel of the Paris bookseller Charles Chadenat.Pierre Margry (1818-1894) dedicated his life to researching the history of France?s overseas exploits (?les exploits français?). He worked as an archivist at the Ministère de la Marine et des Colonies (the Naval and Colonial Ministry) in Paris, and was able to compile the biographies of several French explorers previously forgotten. As his fame as a historian of French colonial history mounted, so did his private collection of exploration books. According to one source, Margry often butted heads with noted American historian Francis Parkman: the latter often accused Margry of neglecting important information in his historical accounts, as well as denying Parkman access to his private library for the American?s own researches. Margry?s defense was that the public could only take historical truth if revealed gradually, and that he was working to the best of his ability. These books form part of that private collection of travel books so defiantly hoarded by Margry from his contemporaries., Size : 12mo., Titles in red and black ink. With 65 (of 66?) plates, including 41 views (30 folding), and 24 folding maps. Volumes 1, 2, 3, 5, 7, and 9 have frontispieces. Includes a number of early important maps of South Africa, Madagascar, Bali, Java, as well as a large folding map of Southeast Asia, and a folding map of the route taken across the Pacific Ocean from Magellan?s Strait to New Guinea. Also the plate ?Isle du Prince? is duplicated: one in vol. 2, one in vol. 3. , Volume : 10 volumes., Pierre Margry; Paris bookseller Charles Chadenat., References : Sabin 68455; Alden 725/166; Landwehr VOC 254; Hill 1438 (1703 English ed.); Cox I:9 (1703 English ed.); University of Moncton: Fonds d?Archives No. 154., P.

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: (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 voyages. Codice libro della libreria 790
