Breeden-Raedt aende Vereenichde Nederlandse Provintien. Gelreland. Holland.

Item Description: Soft cover. Book Condition: Very Good. Antwerpen, Francoys van Duynen, 1649. 24 leaves, small 4to. No wrappers, later paper spine. Two round stains at the bottom of title and first text leaf, else a very good copy. The pamphlet comes in a fine recent marbled board folding case. **** This is the first separate publication on New Netherland. In 1649, delegates were sent from New Netherland to Holland to express grievances against the government about the treatment of the colonists. The anonymously published pamphlet "Breeden Raedt" brought these grievances to the public. It is composed as a dialogue between several fictional persons and strongly attacks the administrations of Directors William Kieft and Peter Stuyvesant. The chief speaker is a Dutch "Schipper", who had been in New Netherland. It is very evident, however, that the real narrator was not a mere skipper of a merchant vessel. He was intimately acquainted with the details of local politics of New Netherland and evidently personally unfriendly both to Kieft and Stuyvesant. For a long time, scholars therefore agreed that the pamphlet must have been written by Cornelis Melyn,who was born in Antwerp and played an important role in the early rise of the colony. He was imprisoned and banned by Stuyvesant. **** The roughly-translated title "Broad Advice" is taken from the naval term used to advise in case of danger or emergency. The pamphlet introduces a total of ten voices: a Portuguese soldier in the service of the Company, the captain of a ship, a Swedish student, a Spanish barber, a French merchant, a Neapolitan, a German gentleman, a poor English nobleman, a boatswain and Polander. With these men as spokesmen, the agents and officers of the Dutch West India Company in Brazil and New Netherland are arraigned, and harshest criticism is reserved for Kieft and Stuyvesant. The tone is coarse and critical. The text is often very graphic in its depiction of violence in the colony, with details of kidnappings and murders, massacres and torture. The work details Kieft's brutal treatment of the local Indians and the Pavonia and Corlears Hook massacres. "Equally unflattering accounts are given of his successor, Stuyvesant, mentioning the incident of losing his leg at the siege of St. Martin in the West Indies, and giving instances of his arrogant and intransigent behavior as governor" (Lathrop Harper, cat. 201, item 415). Important references to Dutch interests in Brazil are included. **** Asher, In his "Bibliographical and historical essay on the Dutch books and Pamphlets relating to New Netherland" entirely devotes pp. 183-198(!) to this pamphlet, which he claims to have discovered (or at least, discovered its historical importance) in 1849. An English translation was made for the first time by F.W. Cowan and included in Müller's "Catalogue of books relating to America" (Amsterdam, 1850). In 1854, Henry C. Murphy published a full translation of the pamphlet (Vertoogh van Nieu Nederland and Breeden Raedt, New York, privately printed). Asher argued that Melyn could not have been the work's author. The title-page ascribes authorship to "I.A." followed by the initials "G.W.C." "The only person prominent enough in New Amsterdam and whose name fits the initials, was Isaac Allerton, one of the Eight Men, but it seems inconceivable that he had anything to do with the composition of the tract. The initials 'G.W.C.' may well mean Geoctroyeerde West-Indische Compagnie, and are probably added to make it appear that the tract was composed by someone officially connected with the West India Company" (Stokes). Until today, there are no definitive clues to prove authorship of the pamphlet.**** EXCEEDINGLY RARE. Last copy sold in auction: 1967, Streeter sale. Müller priced his copy at the then enormous sum of $250 in 1850. Henry C. Murphy, who made a new translation for James Lenox (published in 1854), sold his copy at auction in 1884 for $100.

Item Description: Overvoorde, Catalogus van de prentverzameling der Gemeente Leiden (1906), no. 640; Waller, Biogr. woordenb. Noord Ned. graveurs, p. 287. 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. Bookseller Inventory # 91I90T01U79O

Medecynboeck van diversche medecynen ende remedien die: WASSENAER, Margarite van.

Item Description: A very extensive and detailed manuscript book of medicinal recipes in Dutch, written by a woman who was clearly an experienced apothecary. The book has no surviving title-page, but begins with a two-page preliminary note whose opening words we quote above as the title. It continues with a note indicating that one person differs from another and that one therefore also needs different medicines for different people, followed by a page with three recipes for adjusting the flavour of beer and a brief note on wine, then a page giving the relations between various units of weight used by apothecaries. The remedies for a wide variety of ailments follow, offering remedies for everything from constipation to plague. It tells how to extract medicinal oils, prepare powders, salves, syrups and waters, and gives instructions for distilling. Several recipes involve wine, beer or other alcoholic drinks. A long section near the end covers ailments of women and children, including problems related to pregnancy. While women in the Dutch golden age enjoyed greater opportunities to work in traditionally male professions than in most countries, their work remains much less well documented than that of their male counterparts, so the present manuscript provides a remarkable window into a woman's contribution to medicine and pharmacology.Four leaves have been removed from the first text quire: A1, 2, 5 and 6. A1 and A2 preceded the preliminary note, but it is not clear that the manuscript ever had a title-page, so they may have served merely as additional endleaves. The manuscript is further complete and in very good condition, with only an occasional spot or very minor marginal defect. The binding is soiled, somewhat rubbed and wrinkled, and 3 of the 4 ties are mostly lost, but it is still good. Bookseller Inventory # J95CJ5BXODCQ

Item Description: Overvoorde, Catalogus van de prentverzameling der Gemeente Leiden (1906), no. 964; Waller, Biogr. woordenb. Noord Ned. graveurs, p. 287. 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. Bookseller Inventory # A2RGD4WT38YE

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

Item Description: JBC III, p. 1766; Sabin 76854; STCN (1 copy); WorldCat (2 other copies). 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.

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

Item Description: Knuttel 10600; M. Reinders, Printed pandemonium, pp. 195-199; not in Ford; Gove; Scheckter. 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. Bookseller Inventory # ICFELAQ59QY4

Very rare first and only Schrötter edition, with the text in Latin and German on facing pages, of an alphabetical catalogue of about 1500 plants in the botanical garden of Leiden University, with an appendix listing about 300 plants native to Leiden, first prepared by Florens Schuyl and published in Latin by Johan Elzevier in 1668.Though clearly based on Vorstius’s catalogue, which the Elzeviers had published in 1636, Schuyl’s catalogue expands the list considerably, including for the first time South African plants. It also includes the date palm and some Far Eastern plants. Urban Schrötter, court gardener at the botanical garden of the Prince Bishops of Eichstätt, apparently saw this edition through the press. The present edition appears to be the only work listing Schrötter as publisher, so he may have been more editor than publisher in the normal sense.With an erroneous manuscript attribution to Gottschalk on the title-page and date 1697. In very good condition. The binding is somewhat worn but still good. Very rare Latin and German edition of Schuyl's catalogue of plants at the Leiden University botanical garden.

Item Description: groot 4º: geb. in één halfleren band, 20 + 217 + 4 + 211 p., ill. (op de 2 titelpagina’s vignetten in aquatint, 2 etsen, 1 gravure en 45 aquatinten). Mooi exemplaar, op groot papier, naam van vorige eigenaar uit eerste titelblad gesneden. Lit: Landwehr Col. plates 322; Abbey 185; Cox p.159; Lipperheide Gb 35; Brunet III 457; Graesse III 428 Tweede en laatste druk van dit boek, waarin twee aquatinten en één gravure meer zijn opgenomen dan in de eerste druk. Dit betreft een aquatint van Delft: "Entrance to Delft from Rotterdam" en "Capucin’s funeral" te Eu in Normandië. De toegevoegde gravure toont een "arbor vitae" van de vroedvrouw A.C. Nadich: "Vang my, ik zal zoet zijn". In de boom groeien kinderen die naar beneden vallen en opgevangen worden door vrouw Nadich. Ireland zag dit "reclamebord" aan de kant van de weg bij het dorp Rosendaal. De aquatinten zijn voor de tweede druk zwaar bijgewerkt: ze zijn wat sterker van druk (en daardoor mooier, maar minder contrastrijk). De wolkenluchten zijn geheel anders en tonen meer diepte. De datering is op iedere prent veranderd van 1790 in 1795. Bookseller Inventory # 15439

Album with 47 charming drawings in several: DRAWINGS]. VOITURON, Paul,

Item Description: For Paul Voituron: Van Praet & D'Hondt, Paul Voituron (1824-1891) en zijn denktank: levensschets en progressief gedachtegoed van een Gentse liberaal (2012). An album containing 47 mostly small pen and ink wash, pencil, watercolour and pastel drawings, several in colour. Several are signed by Paul Voituron (1824-1891) and his sisters(?) Hortense and Virginia Voituron, and the Mary who signed many drawings without a family name may be a Voituron as well. Paul Voituron was to become known as a progressive thinker in Ghent, but the Ghent University Library also has a large collection of his drawings. Other drawings in the album must have been drawn by family friends. The first drawing in the album is dated 1842 and several are dated 1842-1844, so one dated 1831 may have been mounted in the album long after it was drawn. Most of the drawings contain one or more human subjects, sometimes in portraits, other times as figures in landscapes. There are also several flower drawings. Together they give a charming view of daily life in Europe in the early 1840's. A few album leaves are detached and frayed at the edges, but the drawings themselves are in very good condition. The binding has lost its backstrip and is rubbed, with the sewing somewhat loose. A charming set of drawings by young ladies and gentlemen from Ghent on a Grand Tour of Europe.

Item Description: Colas 1681; Landwehr, Coloured plates 362; Vinet 2216 (2nd of 3 eds. listed).

The costumes include those of the Moravian brethren. Each plate has an engraved caption in French and Dutch with a detailed explanation on separate letterpress leaves in Dutch and French. The extensive texts accompanying the plates describe the costumes and people in their cultural, historical, moral and social context. The introduction notes that the costume plates were drawn from life under the direction of Jacques Kuyper (1761-1808), engraved by Lodewijk Gottlieb Portman (1772-post 1828) and coloured by the now famous Dutch painter Jan Willem Pieneman (1779-1853).With an 1816 Dutch inscription and two bookplates, manuscript titles and captions in English. In very good condition, with only an occasional minor spot or smudge and with a small corner of 1 leaf cut off, not approaching the text, and nearly untrimmed. The binding is rubbed and the board edges tattered. A beautiful, important and culturally illuminating costume book from the Napoleanic Netherlands. Bookseller Inventory # IAHLJ33DTFEW
