A series of 6 anamorphic prints]. [Holland,: ANAMORPHIC - PRINTS].

About this Item: A rare series of 6 engraved anamorphic prints, mounted on wooden panels and coloured by a contemporary hand. They are designed to be viewed in a cylindrical mirror, and each has a half circle in the plate to indicate where to stand the mirror. They contain no text, series numbers or makers' names. In the 18th century anamorphic prints became very popular and several series were available, including sets published by Elias Baeck, Hertel, Musschenbroek and Pieter Schenk, all very different from the present set.The set includes: a bust of a bald man; a man in a black three-corner hat, holding a book in his hands; a peacock; a long-horned and long-haired goat, sitting; a greyhound; and a boy or young man in a broad-brimmed hat, playing a recorder.Other sets with the same prints but different colouring are located in the collections of the Getty Library (2002.R.27; 7 prints) and the Dutch Museum Boerhaave (P02554-P02558; 5 prints). At least 2 of the 6 prints reappeared in the 19th century as part of a print series lithographed by A. Bökel.In 3 of the prints, part of a watermark can be made out: a Strasbourg coat of arms and the name of Jean Villedary in Angoulême who supplied much paper used in Holland and England. The closest matches are Heawood 1829 (Holland 1743) and 1835A (England? 1762), and Churchill 411 (London 1766). The goat with a small scuff mark in the background and the man with the book somewhat rubbed generally, but overall in very good condition, with only minor scratches not interfering with the image. Given the nature of the material, the condition is remarkably good.l Cf. Baltru aitis, Anamorphoses ou magie artificielle des effets merveilleux (1969); Buijnsters, Papertoys, pp. 31-32 and 371 (2 Dutch series, ca. 1720 and 2nd half of 18th century); Leeman, Anamorfosen (1975).

About this Item: [2 blank], 16, 19-109, [9 blank] pp.A detailed manuscript course in the art of navigation in folio format, with figures in colour, including two volvelles, partly based on the very rare first edition (in 8vo format) of Klaas de Vries (1662-1730), Schat-kamer ofte konst der stier-lieden, (1702; Crone 374), probably in the first issue (not known to survive), before the insertion of an additional quire between B and C. But the manuscript doesn't merely copy the printed book: at least much of the text differs and also at least some of the tabular data, and some of the figures also have no direct equivalents in the printed book (also not in later editions, as far as we have seen). The colour illustrations include a compass rose (13.8 cm diameter) with a ship in the centre, directly copied from the folding engraved plate in De Vries and virtually the same size, but the ship in the centre is copied in mirror image and De Vries's abstract floral decorations in the corners outside the circle are replaced by colour drawings of four different flowers, one in each corner. The manuscript also directly copies De Vries's woodcut illustration of a human hand marked with the numbers "29", "9" and "19" on the thumb and the letters A, B and C next to them, presented as an aid to calculating the epact (the number of days past the new moon on 1 January), but the hand is rotated 180 degrees. Most of the examples of calculations use years in the period 1700-1711, though there are a few later ones (one example uses the year 1809!), which also largely agrees with the 1702 edition of De Vries, though the examples are not identical. The clearest indication that the present manuscript follows the 1702 edition rather than a later one is that the tables giving differences between the positions of the sun and moon cover the years 1701-1704, as in the first edition before the insertion of an extra quire extending the tables to 1710 (B8 was replaced at the same time, not noted by Crone). All later editions we have seen give these tables and the examples of calculations for later years. Yet even in these tables, the data in the present manuscript doesn't exactly agree with De Vries's. With a bookseller's ticket ca. 1901/1919? Very slightly browned with occasional minor spots or ink stains, but still in good condition. The one leaf that appears to be lacking may have been deliberately cancelled by the compiler. The wrapper has a later cloth spine, as noted, and is somewhat worn. A fascinating manuscript course in navigation, with volvelles and other figures in colour, partly based on the very rare first (1702) edition of De Vries's handbook, but not merely copying it.l For De Vries's 1702 handbook: Crone 374 (collation not entirely correct).

The India directory, or, directions for sailing: HORSBURGH, James.

About this Item: [8], XXVI, 503, [1], 16; [8], 642, [1], [1 blank] pp.Rare third, revised edition of a massive navigational directory, with exhaustive information on the Arabian Sea, the Red Sea, and the Arabian Gulf. Including detailed entries on Sharjah, Dubai, Abu Dhabi ("Abothubbee"), Bahrain and Hormuz, not only covering navigational details, but also the inhabitants, pearl fishery, geography, commerce etc.It was compiled chiefly from recent journals of ships employed by the East India Company, by James Horsburgh (1762-1836), hydrographer and chart maker to the Company. "As hydrographer Horsburgh was primarily responsible for supervising the engraving of charts sent back to London by marine surveyors in India and ordered by the company to be published, and for examining the deposited journals of returning ships for observations which would refine the oceanic navigation charts currently in use, besides other duties of provision of information laid on him by the court" (Cook).The book appeared in a total of eight editions between 1809 and 1864 before being superseded by Findlay's A directory for the navigation of the Indian Ocean (1869).With an inserted manuscript note facing p. 136, vol. 1, and a short manuscript note at the foot of page 501, vol. 2. Some faint thumbing to the title-pages and rebacked, but otherwise in very good condition.l Cf. Cat. NHSM, p. 73 (fifth ed.); Sabin 33047 (fifth ed.); for the author: Cook, "Horsburgh, James (1762-1836)", in: ODNB (online ed.). Seller Inventory # L6IC6XHVRQI6

About this Item: [4] ll.Georgius Jacobus Johannes van Os (1782-1861), not to be confused with his nephew George Jac. Joh. Van Os (1805-1841), also a painter, was as a member of a Dutch family of artists. He studied with his father, Jan van Os, a painter of flowers and maritime views. In 1812 Georgius entered the Salon de Paris for the first time. In the following period he not only worked in Paris, but also in The Hague and Amsterdam. In Sèvres, a southwestern suburb of Paris, he worked for the famous porcelain factory. After 1826 he settled definitively in Paris where he died in 1861. He is mainly known for his exquisite "natures mortes", specializing in still lifes of flowers, fruit and game. From early on he demonstrated such exceptional talent that he was asked to paint several flowers for the plates of Jan Kops s famous Flora Batava (1800-1822). He soon developed into one of the most celebrated still life painters of the 19th century.These four exquisite watercolours show well-considered arrangements of (1) a fig, citron, walnut, gooseberries and blackberries; (2) peonies and jasmine; (3) lilies and lilacs and (4) peonies and morning glories.Some discolouring at the edges from a former frame, otherwise in good condition.l Cf.

About this Item: Large view of the city of Leiden by the Amsterdam engraver and publisher Leonardus Schenk. The viewer observes the city from the south, from between the city's Koe and Zijl gates. In the background several windmills and a few characteristic buildings are identified by name in the engraving, including the university, the library, the Pieterskerk, the Town Hall, the Mare kerk, the "Burcht" (the fort), and the Hooglandse kerk. On the quay outside the wall, groups of people walk, sporadically passed by small boats on the nearby city moat. In the foreground we see a typical Dutch landscape, with grazing cattle, farm workers, a loaded hay cart and haystacks in the field. We know of several other wall prints by Schenk depicting local situations with almost photographic detail. Thanks to this detail important socio-historical aspects have been passed on to later generations giving these prints an important cultural meaning today. A few spots, formerly folded, otherwise in very good condition.l Overvoorde, Catalogus van de prentverzameling der Gemeente Leiden (1906), no. 640; Waller, Biogr. woordenb.

About this Item: A large engraved wall print in two sheets showing the trading and commercial centre of the city of Leiden, at the convergence of the Oude Rijn and Nieuwe Rijn canals. Unlike most other Dutch towns, Leiden had no central market square, so that the waterways formed the major access routes for merchandise. On the banks of the canals there is a lively market that converges on the bridge central in the print. Market traders and customers come and go. Women from the coastal fishing villages of Katwijk and Noortwijk display fresh fish for sale. Right in the print we see the monumental "Waag", the weigh-house built in 1658 following a plan by the Dutch architect and engraver Pieter Post. The splendid relief, designed by Rombout Verhulst, that crowns the entrance, is reproduced with a sharp eye for detail. In front of the building commercial goods are hoisted up from carts and a number of ships for transport to the weigh-house. Several other ships had moored and now continue to their destination. A boat flying the Dutch flag brings in a prominent party, while a herald standing precariously at the bow trumpets for right of way. We know of several other wall prints by Schenk depicting local situations with almost photographic detail. Thanks to this detail important socio-historical aspects have been passed on to later generations giving these prints an important cultural meaning today. With some faint foxing, otherwise in very good condition.l Overvoorde, Catalogus van de prentverzameling der Gemeente Leiden (1906), no. 964; Waller, Biogr. woordenb. Noord Ned. graveurs, p. 287.

Naamlyst gesteld naar 't alphabeth van alle: SANTE, Gerrit van].

About this Item: [28], 96 pp.Extremely rare first edition of a list of Dutch data concerning the whaling trade in and around Greenland, compiled by Gerrit van Sante (1728-1779). The book was designed with blank spance to add new data in the years following 1753. The present copy has been updated, probably by the first owner, till the year 1761. Besides the names of the commanders for every Dutch voyage to Greenland and the Davis Strait and the names of the directors for whom they sailed, it also includes an annual record of the number of whales caught, tonnes of blubber and barrels of whale oil, both for each commander individually and for the industry as a whole. "Van Sante understood completely the enormous economic importance of whaling for the Netherlands, and mentions the results of every voyage of every ship" (Catalogue library of G.J. Honig). "Greenland" is broadly interpreted to include the waters around Spitsbergen and Jan Mayen Island, and the Davis Strait fleets (fishing between Greenland and America) are not separately recorded until 1719. With manuscript owner's inscription, the warrant signature of the author on the back of the title-page, and manuscript additions throughout. Otherwise in very good condition and wholly untrimmed.l JBC III, p. 1766; Sabin 76854; STCN (1 copy); WorldCat (2 other copies). Seller Inventory # 18827

About this Item: [4], XVI, 362; [4], 346; [4], 415, [1 blank]; [4], 416 pp.Rare first and only edition of the Dutch translation of an account of the first circumnavigation of Australia, by Captain Matthew Flinders, who was the first to give the continent its present name. "The greatest of all the early coastal voyages His journal is a highlight of Australiana and in one form or another, should be in every collection" (Davidson). This anonymous Dutch translation contains a new preface and footnotes.Flinders was appointed commander of the HMS Investigator in 1801 with instructions to explore the coast of South Australia. Almost a year later, in June 1803, he completed the first circumnavigation of the elusive continent. His ship was in such bad condition, however, that he was unable to complete his surveys. He sailed in the HMS Porpoise to obtain a suitable ship to finish his task, but was wrecked on a reef off the coast of Port Jackson. He managed to get back to Port Jackson, where he set sail for England in the Cumberland, which, again, proved to be in rather poor condition. Unaware that a war had recently broken out between England and France, Flinders called at Mauritius to seek repairs. Here he was immediately arrested by the French governor and kept imprisoned for nearly seven years. In June 1810, Flinders was finally allowed to set sail for England. There he struggled to get his journal published, finally succeeding in 1814.With the labels of the Doctrina & Amicitia library, Amsterdam. Some occasional browning and foxing, especially to the opening leaves of each volume, bindings slightly rubbed, but generally in good condition.l Davidson, pp. 120-125; Ferguson 602; Kroepelien 439; NCC (6 copies); WorldCat (9 copies, incl. 6 the same); cf.

Verhael van den wonderlijken oproer, voorgevallen in: IMAGINARY VOYAGE].

About this Item: 8 pp.First and only edition of a 1672 political pamphlet in the form of a spin-off from Henry Neville's very popular 1668 story of a voyage to the imaginary utopian/dystopian Isle of Pines. The present story is written as a conversation between three militia men on watch discussing the turbulent politics of 1672. One tells of his (fictitious) voyage and several years residence on a (fictitious) utopian island called Mallanbruino in the South Pacific. He says it is one degree south of the Isle of Pines. On Mallanbruino, the industrious people were oppressed by an emperor but rose up and defeated him with help from a prince, who also replaced the evil regents. They note the remarkable similarities to events in the Dutch Republic. The island then set up a new and fairer democratic representative political system, bringing peace and happiness to the island. The three men conclude that the Dutch Republic should introduce such a system.Some spots and a small restoration to the extremities of the title-page, otherwise in good condition. A fascinating but little-known pamphlet building political propaganda around a story related to the popular imaginary voyage to the Isle of Pines.l Knuttel 10600; M. Reinders, Printed pandemonium, pp. 195-199; not in Ford; Gove; Scheckter. Seller Inventory # ICFELAQ59QY4

Mortgage agreement, granting Jan Hanneman, Steward General: MANUSCRIPT]. PHILIP (FELIPE)

About this Item: [2 blank], 9, [1 blank] pp.Original mortgage agreement in Dutch in which King Philip II of Spain, who had sovereignty over the Low Countries and held the title Count of Holland, grants Jan Hanneman the rights to the tithes from his lands of Voorburg and Voorschoten. Philip had succeeded to the Spanish crown the year before on the abdication of the Holy Roman Emperor Charles V, and the present elegantly written text explains that he and the Spanish Government wish to ameliorate their "very large and excessive debts" (it later speaks of 300,000 guilders, which would be 50,000 Flemish pounds) resulting from years of war, the building and maintenance of many fortifications and the salaries of the troops, so the King wishes to mortgage or sell some of his royal domains and the rights to tithes that go with them. Efforts in 1556 had not yielded enough. Spain was later able to finance the wars with treasures from the colonies, most famously transported in the annual silver fleet beginning in 1566, but here a decade earlier, the King was desperate for funds.Formerly folded. In very good condition, but with the sewing recent and rather loose. A primary source for Spain's financial state in 1557 and for the history of Voorburg and Voorschoten.

Die cronycke van Hollant, Zeelant ende Vrieslant.: AURELIUS, Cornelius and

About this Item: [6], 264; [6], 162; [1], 1-110, 110-130, [6] ll. plus the map.One of the four issues (differing only in the imprint) of the third major revision and extension of the famous Dutch national chronicle, known as the "Divisiekroniek", the first edition to include the important continuations by Ellert de Veer (to the year 1591), along with the double-page engraved map of Holland, drawn and engraved for the present edition (so here in its first state) by Jan Pieterszoon Saenredam, but often lacking. The work is beautifully illustrated with 36 woodcut full-length portraits in the text, depicting the counts of Holland and their coats of arms. The Christian humanist scholar and Augustinian monk Cornelius Aurelius lived with Erasmus in Paris in 1497-1498, working in his shadow. His chronicle serves as a foundation for the historiography of the Northern Netherlands and he imbued it with an unequivocal patriotism. His new division of Holland's history into the early "Batavian" period, the medieval history of the county of Holland, and contemporary Burgundian-Habsburg history (to 1517), and his critical research into the sources, gave the inhabitants of the Northern Netherlands a new collective historical identity, providing the beginnings of a national consciousness. His work marks the start of the Renaissance historiography of the Northern Netherlands.With owner s inscriptions. With a small tear in leaf 230 of vol. 2 and leaf 56 of vol. 3, and margins of the first leaves and the map a bit frayed (not affecting the text or map image), but still in good condition. The front hinge has been repaired and the back hinge is cracked, but the binding is otherwise good. A foundational work for Dutch historiography.l Moes & Burger III, pp. 243-247; K.

About this Item: [2], 4, [14], 223, [2], [1 blank] pp.Second Dutch edition of a charming atlas of the Seventeen Provinces (more or less the modern Netherlands and Belgium), composed and published by the ambitious Amsterdam map- and globe maker, printer and publisher Jacob Aertsz. Colom (1600-1673). Like Willem Jansz. Blaeu, Colom first began publishing pilot guides and maritime atlases (no one else dared compete with Blaeu in that field), but both branched out into terrestrial atlases. The maps and portraits are printed from the plates of the rare first Dutch edition (1635), but the text is updated.Apart from the general maps of the Netherlands (in Roman times as well as in the 17th century) and the Seventeen provinces, there are many detailed maps of regions and cities with the surrounding areas, including the Meyery van 's-Hertogenbosch, Bergen op Zoom, Breda, Valckenburgh and Dalem, Malines, diocese of Liège, Namur, Veluwe, Zutphen, island of Dordrecht, Delfland, 6 maps of the new polders (Bylmermeer, Purmer, Wormer, Heer Huygen-waert, Diemermeer, Zype), Walcheren, Ooster- and Westergoe, and Seven wolde.Restored tears in the head and foot margins of the title-page, map 31 on paper with smaller margins, map 45 with a water stain in the corner, but otherwise in very good condition.l Koeman, Col 5; V.d.

T hooghe heymraedtschap vanden lande van Woerden.[Amsterdam,: MAP]. [VINGBOONS, Johannes,

About this Item: A large wall map of the water district Woerden in the province of South Holland (on the border of the province of Utrecht), including the cities of Woerden, Oudewater and Montfoort, as well as many smaller towns (including Bodegraven) and the surrounding polders. Altogether it covers a region smaller than 20 by 20 kilometres at a scale of 1:17,000 (north above and to the right) and if assembled it would have a map image of 122 by 152 cm. It shows the fortifications and principal buildings of the three main cities, other forts and (outside the three main cities) every house, church and windmill. It gives the names of the individual polders (with their boundaries), the roads, waterways and dikes, and some wind mills and houses. The map was first engraved and printed in 1670 and 1671 by the Vingboons brothers, draftsmen, engravers and printers. The present is the sixth printing by Hendrik the Leth, who published the maps with and without the coats of arms, which were updated with most printings. The present set is an issue without the coats of arms.A few minor stains and some negligible inks smudges, and a piece cut off from the left margin of sheet 6 (not reaching the plate), otherwise in very good condition, and wholly untrimmed.l Donkersloot-de Vrij 764, 6th of 8 printings (6 copies).

About this Item: [12, incl. frontispiece], 127, [1 blank] pp.First edition of a beautifully illustrated commemoration of the triumphal entry of William III into the Hague, it was "the costliest and most elaborate public display ever held on Dutch soil" (Nierop) and the first time of a triumphal entry since the rebellion against Spain. The two directors of the festivities were Govert Bidloo (1649-1713), personal physician to William, and Romeyn de Hooghe (1645-1708), one of the greatest artists to come out of the late Dutch Golden Age. The project served as De Hooghe's rehabilitation after he fell from grace the year before, when he got caught in a feud between William III and the city of Amsterdam. The Orangist leadership now thought that De Hooghe had suffered unjustly for their cause. He not only participated in the planning and design, but also made the splendid plates for the present commemorative volume. A slightly altered French edition followed a year later.From 1672 onwards, William governed as Stadtholder Willem III of Orange over most provinces of the Dutch Republic. In addition, from 1689 onward, he reigned as King William III over England and Ireland, and as King William II over Scotland. After dealing with the last remnants of the rebellion in Ireland, William finally found time to return to Holland in 1691.Binding slightly rubbed along the extremities, but otherwise in very good condition.l Berlin Kat. 2925; Landwehr, Splendid ceremonies 146; Muller, Historieplaten 2827; Nierop, The life of Romeyn de Hooghe (2018), pp. 364-372.

About this Item: Watercolour drawing of a column of horse artillery of the Batavian Republic during the aftermath of the Anglo-Russian invasion of Holland in 1799. As part of the War of the Second Coalition, an expeditionary force of British and Russian troops invaded North Holland in the Batavian Republic, the Dutch state established by and allied with the French Republic. After 5 weeks of fighting against a combined army of Batavian and French forces, the badly supplied Anglo-Russian army capitulated and was able to negotiate a strategic withdrawal.Together with his father Dirk (1748-1805), Jan Anthonie Langendijk visited the battlefield a few days before the final retreat of the Anglo-Russian troops, as well as other parts of the country where the effects of the campaign were visible, either through the mobilisation of the armies or the presence of prisoners-of-war. Both artists produced drawings of battles fought during the campaign (at which they had not been present), as well as scenes of the aftermath (at which they might have been present). Several of these were reproduced as engravings.In comparison with other drawings by Langendijk, the current drawing appears unfinished. Remains of the original pencil drawing, differing in several parts from the pen-and-watercolour drawing, are clearly visible. The drawing also notably lacks a background. Elements of this drawing might have been used as a study for a larger drawing or engraving, or Langendijk simply abandoned the work. Nevertheless, it gives an interesting view of the Batavian Republic's horse artillery on the move, showing that many of the soldiers were still wearing parts of the uniforms from the Dutch Republic (cf. De Rochemont & De Wilde).Jan Anthonie Langendijk (1780-1818) was a Dutch painter and engraver, known for his depictions of costumes and of battles. During the Napoleonic Wars, Langendijk created hundreds of drawings of uniformed soldiers of most of the participating countries, most of which were bought by the future King George IV of Great Britain and are now in the Royal Collection.With a few spots.l For Langendijk: Hazewinkel, "Dirk en Jan Anthonie Langendijk en Christoffel Meijer", Rotterdams jaarboekje 1955, pp. 121-142; for the Batavian horse artillery: De Rochemont, De Nederlandsche rijdende artillerie, p. 8; De Wilde, "De uniformen van het Leger van de Bataafse Republiek deeI II: de cavalerie" in: Armamentaria X, pp. 41-56.

About this Item: colour drawing of the transport of Russian and British prisoners-of-war in the aftermath of the Anglo-Russian invasion of Holland in 1799. As part of the War of the Second Coalition, an expeditionary force of British and Russian troops invaded North Holland in the Batavian Republic, the Dutch state established by and allied with the French Republic. After 5 weeks of fighting against a combined army of Batavian and French forces, the badly supplied Anglo-Russian army capitulated and was able to negotiate a strategic withdrawal and the exchange of prisoners-of-war.Together with his father Dirk (1748-1805), Jan Anthonie Langendijk visited the battlefield a few days before the final retreat of the Anglo-Russian troops, as well as other parts of the country where the effects of the campaign were visible, either through the mobilisation of the armies or the presence of prisoners-of-war. Both artists produced drawings of battles fought during the campaign (at which they had not been present), as well as scenes of the aftermath (at which they might have been present). Several of these were reproduced as engravings.The current drawing shows the transport of British (in red coats) and Russian (in green coats and wearing mitre caps) prisoners, escorted by Batavian and French troops. During the campaign, the prisoners were interned in various Dutch cities, even as far from the battlefield as Den Bosch, but most of them were exchanged for Dutch and French prisoners immediately after the hostilities ended. Possibly, the drawing shows the prisoners on their way to be exchanged.In comparison with other drawings by Langendijk, this drawing appears unfinished. Remains of the original pencil drawing, differing in several parts from the pen-and-watercolour drawing, are clearly visible. The drawing also notably lacks a background.

Tafereelen, geschilderd door Gerard de Lairesse, in: LAIRESSE, Gerard de.

About this Item: [4 = title, privilege, explanation] ll.First and only edition of a set of plates illustrating seven paintings by Gerard de Lairesse (1640-1711) in the council room of the former Court of Justice of Holland, Zeeland and West Friesland (now called the Lairesse room) in the Binnenhof in The Hague. The Court commissioned the paintings in 1684 and they were completed by 1688. They depict Aeneas carrying his father Anchises, an allegorical figure of Justice and five scenes from ancient Roman history, each representing a different virtue: Pompei (prudence), Scipio (moderation), Horatius Cocles (courage), Scipio again (steadfastness) and Papyrius (clemency). The printed image of each plate measures about 40 x 28 cm. In three cases the painting fills the plate; the other four paintings, being more or less square (about 23 x 23 cm to 29 x 29 cm in the plates), are depicted within the architectural context. Binding used. A very good copy.l Timmer, Gerard Lairesse (1942), p. 83, nr. 26; cf.

Ordinance forbidding the planting of trees around: MANUSCRIPT - ORDINANCE].

About this Item: Original official ordinance by the knighthood, noblemen and cities of the province of Holland representing the States of Holland (signed by the great statesman Johan van Oldenbarnevelt), giving a detailed picture of the careful balance that had to be struck between individual rights and general good in maintaining the reclaimed Dutch polder lands in the 16th century, in this case concerning water control in the Land van Arkel, a region around the towns of Arkel and Gorinchem and some villages and polder lands to their north and east. The officials had already taken all measures they could independently, improving the existing windmills and building new ones to pump the rising water up into the rivers, but the windmills were unable to perform optimally because willows, orchards and other planted trees on private properties around the windmills were interfering with the wind. The request was granted by the present ordinance. It gave them the authority to forbid further planting within 50 roeden (about 200 metres) of a windmill and to demand the removal of trees already planted within that distance.Although the document itself explicitly refers to the attached seal, no trace of it survives except for the slit cut through the two layers of parchment below the text. The document is in very good condition, with only very minor wear along the folds. An unusually informative ordinance for clearing trees around windmills. Seller Inventory # B1LCA7L42P5W
