         Cornwal; Devon Shyre.]

      1612 - London, 1612. 250 x 320mm. A fine impression: narrow margins, restoration at the top centre fold. A very decorative map of Cornwall and Devon, ignoring political boundaries and instead focusing on natural features, with hills and rivers populated by allegorical figures. Only major towns are marked. LIke most early maps of the South West the seas are filled with sea-monsters and galleons; St Michael's Mount is depicted way out of proportion; and the Channel Islands, Ushant, Scilly Islands and 'The Seauen Iles (Seven?)' are shown close to the coast, each with a female figure. Michael Drayton (1563-1631), a prominent poet, is believed to have started work on his 'Poly-Olbion' in 1598. This epic topographical poem, divided into thirty songs written in alexandrine couplets, ran to nearly 15,000 lines of verse. Each song described one, two or three counties, describing their topography, traditions and histories. The First Part was published in 1612, with eighteen maps probably engraved by William Hole (who signed the frontispiece). Drayton had been a favourite of Queen Elizabeth's court, but was not so popular with James I. Perhaps to rectify this the 'Poly-Olbion' was dedicated to Henry, Prince of Wales, but Henry died in 1612, the year of publication. The work did not sell well, and it was not until 1622 that Drayton could find a publisher for the second part, which contained ten more maps. Drayton intended to compose a further part to cover Scotland, but no part of this work is known to have survived. Despite these setbacks Drayton was still prominent enough to be buried in Poets' Corner in Westminster Abbey when he died in 1631. It was only posthumously that the Poly-Olbion became a literary classic.

      London, Thomas Purfoot, (1612).(1612), small 4to in eights, approximately 180 x 125 mm, 7 x 5 inches, title within patterned border, small printer's device, 2 large woodcut initials, an historiated initial to each book, printed in black letter, leaves: [11 of 12], 196, initial blank leaf is missing, collation: ¶4 ( - ¶1), A - 2B8, 2C4, bound in modern full calf, raised bands to spine, gilt lettered red morocco label, date at foot of spine, new endpapers. Spine very slightly faded, a couple of small light scratches to covers, title page and final page laid down on old paper, title page browned, slightly damaged near lower edge with loss of date on imprint, tip of top corner missing, upper margin partly trimmed, some top and fore - edge margins trimmed within without loss, a couple of tiny repairs to inner margin of ¶3, 2 more to fore - edge margin of ¶4, margins of early pages slightly thumbed, small light stain to margins of first few pages, occasional very small stain on text, no loss of legibility, small ownership inscription dated 1677 on L6v below last line of Book 6, small ink note in margin of M2r and T6r, small neat repair to lower blank corner of Cc3, another to blank corner of Cc4, 2 small holes in Cc4, 1 with loss of about 10 words of text on recto (reverse blank), and the other with loss of probably 1 word from the short line below the last line of text, last 2 pages lightly soiled. A good copy. This translation first published in 1565. Arthur Golding (circa 1536 ? 1606) translated more than 30 works from Latin into English. While primarily remembered today for his translation of Ovid's Metamorphoses because of its influence on William Shakespeare's works, in his own time he was most famous for his translation of Caesar's Commentaries, and his translations of the sermons of John Calvin were important in spreading the doctrines of the Protestant Reformation (Wikipedia). Pforzheimer's collation confirms the date of 1612, Volume II, No. 411; ESTC S11378. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE. FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST. POSTAGE AT COST.

         Ungariae Loca Praecipua Recens Emendata Atque Edita, Per Ioannem Sambucum Pannonium, Imp. Ms. Historicum. 1579.

      1612 - Antwerp: Christoph Plantin, 1579, Latin edition. Coloured, with gold highlights. 340 x 500mm. Centrefold slightly split Ortelius published two maps of Hungary in tandem, this one after Sambucus and another by Wolfgang Lazio.

      At Oxford: Printed By Joseph Barnes, 1612. Quarto. [6], 52pp. Recent calf-backed boards. Title soiled. All corners rounded. Contemporary ink inscription of Edward Brolin to title, further seventeenth-century ink inscription (Thomas Farns?) to verso, scored through.

The staunch Calvinist Rawlinson was Ellesmere's chaplain and had enjoyed the support of the former in the running for the presidency of St. John's in 1611, an election which he narrowly lost to William Laud. Scarce, with ESTC locating 11 copies (however, this being the ex-Wigan central library copy, in reality only 10) - not at the British Library. Madan I, p. 85. STC 20773a.

         Recueil de plans et cartes provenant des "Petits Beaulieu".

      166 - Deux volumes in-8 oblong, contenant 78 + 78 plans et cartes gravés sur cuivre. Cartonnage vert de l'époque. Sans les titres gravés. (Cartonnages fatigués en surface, néanmoins en bon état d'usage. Quelques rousseurs, fine mouillure en tête de certains feuillets.) Agréable exemplaire recueillant 52 villes fortifiées annexées par Louis XIV, provenant de la série des Plans et profils dits "Petits Beaulieu", du nom du contrôleur d'artillerie Sébastien Pontault de Beaulieu (vers 1612-1674), et par opposition du "Grand Beaulieu" des plans de bataille. Cette vaste entreprise pose quelques problèmes de datation ; il est admis, actuellement, que la plupart des atlas ont été publiés du vivant de Beaulieu et en collaboration avec l'ingénieur Jean-Baptiste Hamont, sieur Des Roches, mari de sa nièce, qui aurait été associé à leur réalisation dès 1660 environ. On attribue plusieurs gravures à ce dernier, notamment l'ensemble des vues du comté de Bourgogne et une grande partie de celles de la Lorraine. Quatorze atlas ont ainsi été publiés [Beaulieu I à XIV], vers 1668 pour la majeure partie d'entre eux. Chaque ville est y représentée par 3 planches gravées [chacune d'environ 155 x 105 mm à la cuvette] : le "profil", comprendre une vue générale de la place fortifiée, le "plan" de la ville et la "carte" générale du gouvernement dont elle dépend. Nous avons donc, en tout, 156 gravures sur cuivre, quelques unes signées par A.D Perel (ou Perelle), L. Loisel et D[esroches]. La plupart des villes représentées ici sont celles d'Artois et de Flandre (Nord) ; s'y trouvent également des places de Bourgogne, Catalogne, Hainaut, Limbourg, Lorraine, Luxembourg et Roussillon. Il y a eu plusieurs tirages des cuivres : les nôtres portent tous, en haut à droite dans le cuivre, un numéro en chiffres romains et, à gauche, un numéro en chiffres arabes, ce qui les rattache à l'un des tirages décrits par Mireille Pastoureau (Les Atlas français, p. 13 à 36). Contrairement au plan de Beaulieu, le créateur de ces deux volumes n'a pas réuni les villes par province ; nos exemplaires réunissent donc, dans le désordre, les sites suivants, d'après la collation de Mireille Pastoureau :Beaulieu II (Ac) : Plans et cartes des villes d'Artois. Arras [n° 2, 3 et 5], Bappaume [n° 8 à 10], Hesdin [n° 11 à 13], Lens [n° 14 à 15], Béthune [n° 17 à 19], Saint-Venant [n° 20 à 23], Lilliers [n° 23 à 25], Saint-Omer [n° 32 à 34], Forts de Rébus et d'Hennuin [n° 39, 42 et 43].Beaulieu VII (Ab et Ac) : Plans et profils du comté de Flandre.

         Des hermaphrodites, accouchemens des femmes, et traitement qui est requis pour les relever en santé, & bien élever leurs enfans. Où sont expliqués la figure des laboureurs, & verger du genre humain, signes de pucelage, défloration, conception, & la belle industrie dont use la nature en la promotion du concept & plante prolifique.

      Rouen, David Geuffroy 1612 - Petit in-8 [167 x 105 mm]. Collation : (16), 447, (11) pp. Maroquin brun, dos à nerfs orné, filets d'encadrements sur les plats, tranches dorées. (Reliure du XIXe.) Première et seule édition. "Un pauvre diable mal conformé s'était cru femme, et était chambrière. Puis un jour, il s'aperçut qu'il avait fait erreur; la jeune veuve qui l'employait ne demandant qu'à le croire, ils eurent envie de se marier. La justice s'en mêla. Outré qu'une femme connut comme telle prétendît être un homme, le procureur pensa qu'il fallait que Satan eût joué quelque tour : comme suppôt du Prince des enfers, il condamna donc le malheureux à être brûlé vif. Du fond de sa prison, celui-ci en appelle; la Cour, perplexe ordonne qu'il sera examiné, ce que l'on avait jusque là jugé superflu, et au nombre des médecins commis à cet effet il a la bonne fortune de voir compter Jacques Duval. Celui-ci, plus curieux que ses confrères, se convainct de la vérité; son rapport décide la Cour. L'homme fut déclaré absous et, espérons-le, put épouser la veuve. Fier d'un pareil résultat, Duval composa exprès ce livre où il réunit un certain nombre d'anomalies du même genre, comme celle de ce jeune prêtre qui était "gros d'enfant" ou de cette femme qui devint homme après avoir eu un enfant ou encore celle d'une autre femme qui était homme de temps en temps. Jacques Duval (ca.1555-ca.1615) était "Docteur et Professeur en Médecine, natif d'Evreux et demeurant à Rouen". Illustré par des gravures sur bois dans le texte: portrait de l'auteur, 3 figures d'anatomie et un diagramme astrologique. De toute rareté: "Un arrêt du Parlement, en date du 4 Avril 1612, a ordonné la saisie des exemplaires de ce livre singulier, et en a suspendu la vente." (Brunet II, 926). Hahn, Dumaitre, Hist. de la médecine et du livre médical 252. Bel exemplaire, très bien relié par Petit. Krivatsy 3586.First edition. The first part deals with obstetrics in general and the second with Hermaphrodites. The book has been forbidden the same year it has been published and is now very rare.

         Le Mercure François, ou, la Suitte de l'Histoire de la paix.

      Paris, Jean Richer 1612 - 25 volumes petit in-8. Collation : Vélin. (Reliure de l'époque.) Collection absolument complète du premier périodique français, publié à raison d'un volume par an, puis par périodicité plus espacée. Le "Mercure français" rassemble une collection de sources de première main sur les évènements politiques, militaires, diplomatiques, mondains et religieux (notamment la dure bataille contre les Réformés, comme le siège de La Rochelle qui dura un an), des pays nordiques à l'Espagne, de l'Angleterre à la Russie, et partout où sont impliqués les Européens, du Maghreb à la Turquie, et de l'Inde à Java. Il s'avère particulièrement utile sur la guerre de Trente Ans et sur les efforts de colonisation. Ainsi, le Canada fait l'objet de nombreux textes, certains parus en édition originale, comme des relations de Champlain, l'installation et le développement de la colonie au Québec, l'organisation d'une Compagnie commerciale, la mise en place des structures missionnaires et la présentation des travaux linguistiques des jésuites. Ces 25 volumes totalisent environ 20.000 pages,illustrées de28 planches hors texte repliées dont 24 gravées sur cuivre, un tableau généalogique dépliant et 3 planches gravées sur bois dans le texte. On y trouve donc 3 planches de plus que la collation donnée par Picot, ou d’autres exemplaires connus. Jean Richer fonda ce périodique en 1612 (relayé ensuite par son parent Estienne) et traitât l'ensemble de l'actualité européenne, colonies comprises. Assisté de correspondants en France et à l'étranger, et rédigea lui-même des textes auxquels il adjoignit les nouvelles qu'on lui envoyait. A partir de 1624 la direction de la publication revint au Père Joseph, l’ami de toujours de Richelieu. L’esprit de la publication va changer. Le Mercure françois devînt un organe officieux du gouvernement ; en effet, il en modifia la forme, apporta plus de cohérence, imposa une ligne, et organisa chaque volume en une narration suivie entrecoupée de mémoires et dissertations. Le tome 1 est en 4e édition (la 1èreétant de 1612.) Des pages ou des gravures qui étaient manquantes proviennent d’autres exemplaires, certaines sont un peu plus courtes en pied. Les pages 925 à 1040, et les 2 ff. du Privilège du tome 19, ont été ajoutées. Ces pages manquent presque toujours: elles ont été victimes de la Censure de l’archevêque de Bordeaux, cardinal de Sourdis, et aussi lieutenant général de la Marine pour une simple querelle sur le marché au poisson.(Chartier). La reliure en vélin est uniforme. Bel exemplaire. Description détaillée sur demande. // You can browse all my books on latude.net [Attributes: First Edition]

         APOCRYPHA, GENEALOGY AND MAP FROM FIRST QUARTO OF KING JAMES BIBLE {Substantial Fragment of Original Leaves}

      Robert Barker, London, 1612-1613. London: Robert Barker, London, 1612-1613, 1612. Unpaginated but I count 211 pages (105 keaves) from an original King James Bible of 1612-1613. This was the first Quarto printing of the King James version of the Bible, printed in two columns, Roman typeface. There are 27 pages of John Speed's illustrated Genealogy, the two page map of the Holy Land together with the two page Description of Canaan, and I count 180 unpaginated pages of the Apocraphal books beginning with the first page of Esdras and ending with Maccabees II through Chapter VII. Last four leaves of Apocrypha are severely dog eared at bottom outside corner and two of these leaves have a word of text affected. First page of Genealogies very age darkened, as is last page of Apocrypha. Perhaps half of the pages of this substantial fragment are dog eared but not so seriously as to affect content. Pages of Genealogy present are: 7-34 ending with Christ at bottom of page 34. All pages of this fragment are very age toned and there is some soiling and old staining. Brown paper covers are also dog eared and with some short closed tears at eges. Title on front cover written in neat old pen "The Apocrypha" within decorative hand drawn box. Engraved headpiece at Esdras first page has deocoration of small pleasant face at center which is consistent with headpiece of Esdras from 1613 Bible that is shown online. However, this decorative headpiece was also used extensively in sections of the 1612 King James Bible online. It is possible this substantial fragment of the first Quarto of the King James Bible has mixed states including some pages printesd in 1612 and others in 1613. This is consistent with the generally accepted printing dates of the first Quarto by Robert Barker of 1612-1613. Not only the headpiece of the section of the Apocrypha but also the typography of the final page of Genealogy showing Christ as last entry is consistent with earliest printings of the King James Bible. It would be a sin to break up this item into individual leaves, but individual leaves of this early printing sell for significant sums in themselves. Good (reasonably priced) alternative to the very pricey complete King James Bible first quarto. . First Editions. Large Fragment in Paper Covers. Very Good/N/A. Illus. by Illustrated Genealogy, Two Page Map, and Headpiece and Historiated Initials . Quarto, 27, 4, 180pp.

It is generally considered to be the fallout of this publication that led to the loss of Bertius's credibility as a Reformed theologian (he converted to Rome in 1620) and his eventual forsaking of the universities of the Netherlands for the court of Louis XIII. Latin text. Decorative woodcut to title page. Red page edges. Later marbled paper-backed boards with black leather spine label lettered gilt; later endpapers.

         Greek title] Athenæi Deipno Sophistarum Libri Quindecim

      apud viduam Antonii de Harsy, Lugduni [i.e. Lyon] 1612 - [Greek title] Athenæi Deipno Sophistarum Libri Quindecim, Cum Jacobi Dalechampii Cadomensis Latina interpretatione, ultimum ab autore recognita; & notis eiusdem ad calcem remissis. Editio Postrema: In qua ultra ea quae ante Isaacus Casaubonus recensuit, & ex Antiquis membranis suppleuit, auxitque, adiectae sunt margini ex eiusdem Casauboni in Auctorem Animadversionum libris XV variae lectiones, & coniecturae. Accesserunt in Textu Notae ad Singulas voces & ipsius authoris loca, quae in iis libris tractantur & examinantur. Cum Necessariis Indicibus. Title printed in red and black with a large woodcut device, woodcut portrait leaf *3, woodcut head and tailpieces and initials. Folio. [348 x 212 x 75 mm]. [24]ff, 811, [49] pp. Bound in England c.1690 in calf, the covers stained in three shades to form a panel and tooled in blind with a double fillet, a roll and a large floral tool at the outher corners of the panel. The spine divided into six panels with thick bands tooled with a gilt roll, lettered in the second panel on a red goatskin label with additional bud tools, the others with a central flowerhead, four long leafy stemmed flowers and four floral wedge-shaped tools, the edges of the boards tooled with a blind roll, the turn-ins stained to a striped pattern, plain endleaves, red sprinkled edges. (Joints a little worn, with cracks at head of both joints, covers with a few small patches of insect activity, tips of the corners worn). A little light browning, but a fine copy. It belonged to Graham Pollard (1903-1976) who added a pencil note: "English binding about 1690 possibly by the "Spaniel Binder" - witness the sprigs of leaves on the spine and the rolls round the panel and on the edges of the boards". Pollard was the author of "Changes in the Style of Bookbinding, 1550-1830", published in The Library, June 1956, but I am not convinced by his attribution. The spine is decorated in the style associated with certain Oxford binders, such as Richard and Thomas Sedgley. There are some interesting features, such as the thick bands, each tooled three times with a roll, and the striped effect on the turn-ins. The Third Century Hellenist Athenaeus of Naucratis's Deipnosophists roughly translates as the "Banquet of the Learned". It examines the world of the leisure classes in the Roman Empire in 15 books and is a rich source for the study of classical recipes, wine, music, literary gossip and sexual mores. Books XII-XIII include a particularly candid discussion of homosexuality. This edition, with the extensive notes of classicist Isaac Casaubon (1559-1614) is considered the definitive edition of the work and Casaubon's magnum opus. Bookplate of Sir Thomas Seabright [or Sebright], 4th Bart. (1692-1736) of Beechwood, Hertfordshire, MP for Hertfordshire 1715-36. A graduate of Jesus College, Oxford, his library is often referred to by Hearne and his important collection of paintings was sold at auction by Mr. Cock in 1737. [Attributes: First Edition]

         Florilegium, tractans de variis florib. et aliis Indicis plantis ad vivum delineatum in duabus partib. et quatuor linguis concinnatum.

      Frankfurt am Main: A. Kempner 1612 - Francofurti, Anthonium Kempner, 1612. 2 parts in one volume, folio (400 x 265mm.), part one with engraved title, letterpress title for part 2, engraved portrait of the author, 110 engraved plates, contemporary vellum. Large copy. *** THE FIRST EDITION OF SWEERT'S FAMOUS "FLORILEGIUM" *** Originally intended as catalogues for the sale of plants and bulbs at the famous, annual Frankfurt fair, Sweert's Florilegium proved immensely popular, and was reprinted in Frankfurt in 1614 and then in Amsterdam in 1620, 1631, 1647, and 1655. Sweert's fame as a floriculturist was widespread: he was at one time the prefect of the gardens of Emperor Rudolf II and mention of him occurs in the correspondence of naturalists, botanists, and floriculturists of the period. A white iris was even named for him (the Iris sweertii). The work is divided into two parts: the first deals with bulbous species, and the second with species having "fibrous" roots (hellebores, canna, lily of the valley, chrysthanthemums, and many others) and a number of "beautiful" and "fragrant" trees such as myrtle, arbor vitae, and juniper.

Daß davor keine weiteren Blätter fehlen zeigt ein Vergleich mit dem Reprint von 1987. Das letzte Blatt (im 6. Teil) ist lose. Der Buchblock ist am Anfang und am Ende eselsohrig; etwas stärker an den oberen Ecken. Der Buchblock ist an der oberen Schnittkante etwas knapp beschnitten. In allen Teilen sind die Textseiten rundum mit Zierleisten eingerahmt, wobei die oberen Zierleisten an einigen Stellen etwas angeschnitten sind. Sonst ein fleckenloses Exemplar. Die bräunliche Farbe des Satzspiegels ist Resultat der kräftigen Druckfarbe, welche sich durch das Papier durchgearbeitet hat. Die Papierqualität ist unverwüstlich, das zeigt sich z.B. daran, daß umgebogene Eselsohren nicht abblättern. Auch keine Wurmlöcher. Alle 148 Kupfertafeln sind komplett gemäß den beigefügten Auflistungen u. Anweisungen für den Buchbinder sowie auch die übrigen Textseiten (d.h. ausgenommen der Haupt-Titel u. die 4 Seiten am Anfang). Der seinerzeitige Buchbinder hat mitgedacht und die 148 Tafeln genau an die richtigen Stellen gebunden und sich dabei durch etliche Fehler des Setzers bzw. Druckers nicht irritieren lassen. Braucht aber einen neuen Einband. Die Mängel sind im Preis berücksichtigt. ++++++++++++++++ Als Zugabe gibt es den gekürzten und verkleinerten Reprint aus dem Jahr 1987 (Verlag Technik, Berlin) - vgl. die Abbildung. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Eine größere Sammlung "Erfinder u. Erfindungen" wurde von uns in den Antiquariats-Bestand eingearbeitet. Sie finden diese Titel innerhalb der Kategorien "Technik" und/oder "Maschinenbau & Fertigungstechnik".

        Zwei verschiedene Lilienarten mit lila bzw. altrosa Blüten und ihrer Zwiebel.

      . Kolorierter Kupferstich von Sweertius aus "Florilegium", Frankfurt, ab 1612, 34 x 20,5 cm.. Siehe Nissen BBI, 1920 und 1921. - Der Holländer Emanuel Sweerts genannt Sweertius (1552-1612) war Blumenhändler und Direktor der Gärten Kaiser Rudolphs II. In dessen Auftrag erschien 1612 Sweertius Werk "Florilegium", das zugleich Blumenbuch und Verkaufskatalog war, denn alle in diesem Werk abgebildeten Blumen waren bei ihm während der Frankfurter Messe käuflich zu erwerben. Bei diesem Blumenbuch handelte es sich nicht nur um ein Musterbuch für Dekorateure und Maler, sondern um einen illustrierten Samen- und Pflanzenkatalog. Auf Grund des großen Erfolges erschien das Werk in den Jahren 1620, 1631, 1641, 1647 und 1655 bei der berühmten Verlegerfamilie Janssonius in Amsterdam.
