      1612. Carta geografiaca tratta dal "Tabularum Geographicarum contractarum" di Petrus Bertius, edizione latina del 1616. L'opera contiene 219 carte che illustrano questa nuova versione della geografia del Bertius, per la prima volta pubblicata nel 1612 con le carte di Barent Langenes. Le carte derivano dal grande Mercator/Hondius atlas, delle quali molte rappresentano una semplice riduzione. Incisione in rame, carta leggermente brunita, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. A superior rival to the pocket Ortelius atlas appeared about 1598, under the imprint of Barent Langenes and Cornelis Claesz. Claesz also published the Tabularum Geographicarum Contractarum, edition with texy by Petrus Bertius, in 1600. After the death of Cornelis Claesz in 1609, Jodocus Hondius II became the new publisher of the work, composed by 7 parts in 1, with engraved title - page and 220 full - page engraved maps in text. All the maps were newly engraved and slightly larger in size, because Hondius was not able to acquire the original plates. With the new plates the work was definitely improved and enjoyed a growing demand of the public, which at that time had the choice between the Atlas Minor by Mercator and Bertius' Tabularum Geographicarum. The 219 plates, with the oval world map appearing twice, were produced to illustrate a new version of the geography of Bertius, published in 1616. According to King, their correct attribution is by Hondius, after Mercator and Hondius, taken from Bertius, who was only responsible for revising his text again.

         Comentarios de las cosas en los Paises Baxos de Flandes, desde el ano de mil y quinientos y noventa y quatro, hasta el de mil y quinientos y nouenta y ocho

      1612 - The war for the Low Countries commented by a Spanish Soldier. 1612 [1611 colophon]. Madrid. Luis Sanchez. In 4to (189 mm x 132 mm). 6 ff. + 159 ff. Red morocco by Brugalla, gilt supralibros on sides, gilt turn-ins, gilt edges. Professional repairs in C1, one affecting a little text, repair affecting text in V1, large marginal repair in I3, else very good. 5,000 $ First edition. A contemporary war chronicle, and a relevant source for the history of the Low Countries and the war with Spain, written in the form of an autobiographical account, thus not engaging in historic remarks, but based in the experiences of the author, a soldier in the war, although a brief historic overview of the events leading to the war is given. The illustration comprises a full page portrait of the author standing in armor, with his shield against a tree, signed by the cipher FND(?), and woodcut arms on title page. His personal approach to the work is outlined in the last chapter “Y porque estos misescritos, o comentarios, no son mas que unas breves memorias de lo que vi y alcance a saber del tiempo en que milite en la guerra de Flandes, y va escrito mas como soldado que como historiador” (CLVII pp. v158-159). Cabrera de Cordoba would later use this book for the confection of his chronicle (1619), relying considerably on the un-biasness of a soldier who only wrote on his own experience, rather than with ideological positions taken, as earlier chroniclers such as Ulloa and Cornejo.

         Epitome Theatri Orbis Terrarum Abrahami Ortelij De novo recognita, aucta et Geographica ratione restaurata à Michaele Coigneto Mathem. Antuerpiano

      1612. In 8° obl (mm 170x122), A - S8 T4, frontespizio architettonico, testo latino, 137 mappe incise, di cui 134 tavole geografiche, un globo celeste, un globo terrestre e una veduta del monastero di San Lorenzo de El Escorial, 2 illustrazioni incise nel testo, legatura in pelle marrone, tagli rossi, lieve brunitura su qualche folio, rare fioriture e qualche piccolo foro di tarlo ai margini, nel complesso in ottimo stato di conservazione. La versione in formato ridotto del Theatrum Orbis Terrarum di Ortelius, nota come Epitome, costituisce il primo esempio di atlante tascabile moderno. L'idea di un formato pocket, fu concepita da Philip Galle nel 1577 che, con la collaborazione di Peeter Heyns, lanciò il nuovo genere in Olanda e Francia, con il titolo di "Specchio del mondo" (Spieghel der Werelt/Le miroir du monde). Nel 1583, Galle decise di aggiungere nuove mappe, da lui disegnate e incise, con testo curato sempre da P. Heyns: tra il 1577 e il 1598 pubblicarono ben 11 edizioni, stampate da C. Plantin; mentre il numero delle mappe arrivò a 123 nell'edizione del 1598. Dopo la morte di Ortelius, le matrici dell'Epitome passarono a Jean Baptiste Vrients che nel 1601 pubblicò ad Anversa una nuova Epitome, stampata da Henrick Swingen, con testo curato dal matematico M. Coignet. Come aveva fatto Galle, il numero delle mappe fu progressivamente aumentato con nuove tavole incise dai fratelli Ambrose & Ferdinand Arsenius, che erano all'epoca assistenti di Frans Hogenberg, ed erano stati co - incisori del Theatrum di Ortelius. L'edizione del 1612, che ricalca quella del 1609, ne comprende 137, e fu stampata da Plantin. Oblong 8vo (121 x 168 mm). A - S8 T4. With engraved architectural title and 137 engraved maps with Latin text on verso, 2 engravings in text, calf binding, just some soiling, occasional foxing and some marginal wormholes, otherwise in very good condition. The first pocket version of Abraham Ortelius folio Atlas Theatrum Orbis Terra was published by Philip Galle with text by Pieter Heyns, in 1577. Under the title Spieghel der Werelt [Mirror of the World], they launched the new genre in Dutch and French. Between 1577 & 1598 Galle issued 11 editions printed by Christopher Plantin. From 1583 he gradually introduced a new set of maps, drawn and engraved by Galle adding quality and quantity replacing the originals until they had grown to 123 by 1598. After Ortelius' death, Jeand Baptiste Vrients acquired these plates, and in 1601 he published his first edition of Epitome. The text was provided by Michael Coignet and a new series of 13 mpas was engraved by Ambrosius and Fredinand Arsenius.They had been assistants to Frans Hogenberg and co - engravers of Ortelius' folio Theatrum. The Vrients' editions of 1609 and 1612 were printed by Plantin, with 137 maps. Anversa Antwerpen Koeman III Ort 58; King pp. 86 - 87; T.ORT - 3a; vgl. Phillips 3411; Navari, Cyprus 50.

      London: [William Jaggard] for John Jaggard, 1612. Second Jaggard edition, second issue with G7,8 canceled with addition of signatures H-O. Woodcut headpiece and printer's ornaments on title and "Of the Colours" section title, woodcut initials. [220] pp. Collation: A-F^8 G^8 (-G7,8) H-O^8. Small 8vo. Nineteenth century full blue morocco, covers gilt with dentelle border, smooth spine lettered in gilt, a.e.g. Light wear to extremities, small waterstains to covers. Second Jaggard edition, second issue with G7,8 canceled with addition of signatures H-O. Woodcut headpiece and printer's ornaments on title and "Of the Colours" section title, woodcut initials. [220] pp. Collation: A-F^8 G^8 (-G7,8) H-O^8. Small 8vo. Huth-Pirie Copy of the 1612 Jaggard Printing of Bacon's Essayes. The second Jaggard edition of the Essayes of statesman and philosopher Francis Bacon (1561-1626). Jaggard used his 1606 edition of the Essayes, which contained the original 10 essays of the first edition, as a model for this 1612 printing. When a new edition by Beale, expanded from 10 to 38 essays, appeared in 1612, Jaggard canceled the final two leaves (G7,8) and expanded the work to include the full compliment of essays. Jaggard made no entry of this or his 1606 and 1613 editions of the Essayes in the Stationers' Register, and so it has been customary to regard his editions as piracies. Jackson gently disputes this notion in the note to Pforzheimer 29, suggesting that a later transfer of rights to Jaggard's widow in 1624, as well as the silence of Hopper and Beale (who did register their rights with the Stationers' Company), argues for Jaggard having some right to the Essayes. "In some manner, therefore, Jaggard must have himself secured 'rights' which the Stationers' Company regarded as transferable even though not previously entered in the Register" (Pforzheimer). In any case, a rare edition: we trace only this copy at auction. The Essayes, which went into numerous editions in the author's lifetime and eventually expanded from the 10 essays printed in the first edition to 58 in the 1625 edition, treat moral and political topics in "a terse, aphoristic style … which Bacon conceived as a genre setting down discrete observations on life, and aspiring to some kind of objective validity" (ODNB). "In an age of complicated and superficial verbiage, [Bacon] turns the licence of imaginative and allusive expression into an instrument of accurate and chastened thought" (Cambridge History of English and American Literature). The Essayes were originally circulated in manuscript among Bacon's friends - the threat of a pirated edition by Richard Seeger lead to Bacon entrusting the work to Humfrey Hooper for publication in 1597. A fine copy with exceptional provenance. ESTC S100353; Gibson 7; cf. Pforzheimer 28 & 29. Provenance: Henry Huth (black morocco booklabel, Sotheby's, Wilkinson & Hodge, 15 November 1911, lot 389); Robert S Pirie (his bookplate, purchased Seven Gables, 1962)

      David Geuffroy, Rouen 1612 - ______ Format : 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.). ___ 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. Fine nineteen century marocco binding. ____ 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).

         L’Arte Vetraria distinta in Libri Sette Ne quali si scoprono, effetti maravigliosi, & insegnano segreti bellissimi, del Vetro nel Fuoco & altre cose curiose.

      - Woodcut printer’s device on title. 4 p.l., 114, [6] pp. Small 4to, 18th-cent. vellum over boards (light browning & foxing). Florence: Giunta, 1612. First edition of the first and most famous textbook devoted to glassmaking. "Neri is remembered only for L’arte vetraria (1612), a little book in which many, although by no means all, of the closely guarded secrets of glassmaking were printed for the first time. He recommended that glass be made from rocchetta (a fairly pure sodium sesquicarbonate from the Near East) and tarso, which he described as a kind of marble but which must have been some form of silica. He did not indicate the source of the necessary proportion of lime. The main part of the text deals with the coloring of glass with metallic oxides to give not only clear and uniform colors but also various veined effects. There are chapters on making lead glass of high refractive index and enamel (opaque) glass by the addition of tin oxide."–D.S.B., X, p. 23. Neri (d. ca. 1614), appears to have learned the art of glassmaking at Murano, near Venice, and to have continued his studies of this and other chemical arts in the Low Countries. "The greater part of the book is devoted to the coloration of glass, both to imitate gemstones and for the use of enamellers."–Singer et al, History of Technology, III, p. 217–(& see the detailed discussion of this work on pp. 217-19). This work went through numerous editions and translations; the first edition is rare. Very good copy. Engraved armorial bookplate of the Italian poet Domenico Rosa Morando (1734-1824). ? Duncan 9299. Partington, II, p. 368. See Ferguson, II, pp. 134-35–(not owning the 1st ed.). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         De spontaneo viventium ortu [AND] De his, qui diu vivunt sine alimento (2 volumes bound in 1)

      Vicetiae, Ex typographia Dominici Amadei, apud Franciscum Bolzetam; Patavii, Apud Petrum Bertellium, 1612 - 1618. First Edition. Hardcover. Good. 2 volumes bound as 1. 2 works by Liceti, De his, qui diu vivunt sine alimento, Patavii [i.e. Padua]: Apud Petrum Bertellium, 1612. + De spontaneo viventium ortu, Vicenza: Ex typographia Dominici Amadei, apud Franciscum Bolzetam, 1618. 1st editions. Folio; 31 x 21 cm. Collated: [68], 199. [1], 159 (i. e. 162) p. + [3], ff., 323, [30] p. Bound in contemporary calf, rebacked on later spine. Interally good.
Fortunio Liceti (1577-1657) was an influential Genoese doctor and natural philosopher. A friend and correspondence of Galileo and a remarkable polymath, Liceti wrote widely on scientific subjects. Liceti is best known today for his 'De Monstris', a treatise on deformities. Liceti's De his is a collection of examples of long-term fasting. Liceti argued that longevity could be increased by fasting and provides a general treatise on nutrition. The second work, De spontaneo viventium ortu, "is a study of spontaneous generation, the Aristotelian doctrine that life (primarily insects) could be generated in the process of decomposition, though it discusses fungi and other forms of life that appear to originate spontaneously." Liceti surveyed a wide range of existing ideas related to spontaneous generation including an extensive analysis to Ficino's theory on abiogenesis. Liceti's discussion was widely diffused throughout Europe in the 17th century in the works of Daniel Sennert and Athanasius Kircher, who, himself, provoked intense debates on the subject. See Hirai, Medical Humanism and Natural Philosophy, pp. 123-15, 2011. Licenti was well represented in the library of Sir Thomas Browne, who studied in Padua during the time Liceti was professor of experimental medicine. Refs: National Library of Medicine.

         Antverpia

      Cologne: 1572-1612. - Two sheets joined (32 x 19 inches, trimmed margins with platemark). Fine engraved view with original hand-coloring of Antwerp with inset text and cartouche (lightly toned). Drawn for volume V of Braun and Hogenburg's Civitates orbis terrarum by contributor Georg Hoefnagel, a resident of Antwerp. An ornate cartouche in the lower right contains a poem by the Italian scholar Julius Scaliger (April 23, 1484 - October 21, 1558). Text in the lower left includes a neo-Latin verse by Flemish diplomat Daniel Rogers, numbered key to the city's landmarks as well as a description of the people and culture. From Georg Braun's description of the city, "The city is in rich possession of that which belongs to the nourishment of the soul and the practice of the Christian religion. For it has 5 parish churches, 9 monasteries and nunneries, 8 chapels, 3 hospices, 24 houses of God. The Franciscan monastery is particularly famous and invested with a magnificent library, which was plundered in the wars gone by, however. [.] In the very centre of the city is a large square called the Bourse, which is lined with magnificent columns supporting the covered colonnade and which is very skilfully vaulted: it looks as if it were panelled in wood. In the colonade there are all sorts of things for sale that are interesting to look at; the merchants meet here every day at certain times to trade their wares." The views from George Braun and Frans Hogenberg's landmark Civitates orbis terrarum, completed in Cologne between 1572 and 1618, are among the most beautiful and important images of Renaissance cities. The Civitates was the first extensive series of town views that treated its subject matter in an accurate and meaningful way. Earlier collections of town views were far more limited in scope, and often made no real attempt to render the subject city with any degree of realism being simply a record of the existence of a town. Certainly the striking beauty and accuracy of Braun and Hogenberg's production was entirely unprecedented. Earlier collections contained no more than a handful of views, usually only of the more important cities, while the Civitates contained literally hundreds of views, including many of smaller towns for which no earlier views are known. Even for the larger, important cities, the Civitates is of the utmost importance to the history of their topography. Braun and Hogenberg envisioned this massive collection as a companion work to the Theatrum orbis terrarum, the first modern atlas, published by Abraham Ortelius in Antwerp from 1570. Indeed, Hogenberg had first-hand knowledge of that impressive and influential work, having been commissioned by Ortelius to engrave many of the plates for the maps it included. It took over forty years to collect all of the hundreds of plans contained in the volumes that form the complete Civitates. The text was compiled and written by Braun, the Canon of Cologne Cathedral, and a total of five hundred views were eventually included. The majority of the engraving was completed by Hogenberg and Simon Novellanus, many after drawings by Joris Hoefnagel, a talented topographical artist. The artistic merit of this particular plate is extremely high, and it reflects many of the same high standards of quality, in terms of color and decoration, that characterizes the maps of Ortelius. Embellished in the style of north European Renaissance art, it contains splendid examples of ornate strapwork and fretwork cartouches, a heraldic crest, a medallion, and perhaps most importantly, costumed figures that exhibit the regional fashions of the day. Legend holds that these charming figures were added to prevent the export of the book to the Islamic world, where artistic representation of the human figure was prohibited. For more information about this view, or a warm welcome to see it and other books in our library at 72nd Street, NYC, please contact Tara Mishkovsky, M.A. in the Rare Book Department.

It also offers a reward for his capture dead or alive (4000 ducats if captured in the Republic and 6000 ducats if captured abroad).

Anzolo succeeded to his father's knighthood and followed him into diplomatic service as Venetian ambassador to France from 1602 until he came into conflict with the Council of Ten in 1607.With a large "9" on the title-page in red pencil.

Son auteur était un humaniste italien (mort en 1582), dont la pureté de la langue et l'élégance du style furent très appréciées à son époque. Les Dix livres de la Mythologie, ou explication des Fables sont une immense mosaïque de citations antiques extraites des poètes tragiques et des philosophes, abondamment commentées. Il est à noter que l'auteur glisse dans certaines entrées du texte quelques considérations alchimiques sur la mythologie antique, et cela en parfait accord avec ce que prônaient les Philosophes Hermétiques et que validera brillamment Dom Pernety au XVIIIe dans son Dictionnaire mytho-hermétique dans lequel on trouve les allégories fabuleuses des poètes, les métaphores, les énigmes et les termes barbares des philosophes hermétiques expliqués et Les Fables égyptiennes et grecques dévoilées & réduites au même principe avec une explication des hiéroglyphes et de la guerre de Troie. Le succès de l?oeuvre à la fin du siècle est également attesté par les éditions successives de la traduction française de Jean de Montlyard : publiée une première fois à Lyon en 1600, elle sera rééditée en 1604, 1607 et 1612. Dans un long avis de l'imprimeur, L'Imprimeur au bening Lecteur, Paul Frellon se plaint d'une édition pirate imprimée à Rouen en 1611. Baudrier V, 276 (pour l'édition datée 1600). Bel exemplaire.

Con numerose belle iniziali silogr., armi degli Estensi sul titolo di ciascuna opera, impresa tipogr. del Cassiani in fine alla prima ed altra grande di G.M. Verdi in fine alla quarta opera. Prima edizione di tutte le quattro opere. Il primo testo è un'introduzione all'alchimia considerata una parte della magia naturale. L'autore (1562-1611), che in diversi passi trae spunto da Pico della Mirandola, fornisce le chiavi essenziali per iniziare lo studio dell'antica scienza ebraica secondo le concezioni del neoplatonismo. L' opera di Antonios Polemon (88-144 d.C., di Laodicea, nella Caria, sofista greco) sulla fisiognomica è tradotta, nel primo caso, in latino dal Montecuccoli, nel secondo, in italiano da suo fratello Francesco; ed seguita dalle "Assertiones", un compendio in brevi sentenze della filosofia dell'umanesimo legata al neoplatonismo. L'ultima opera è un'Orazione panegirica in onore di S.Giacinto. Importante assieme di opere (le prime tre) dedicate alla cabala, all'esoterismo e fisiognomica, reperibili anche singolarmente (ma l'opuscolo "In cabalam introductio", citato da Thorndike, non è stato riscontrato in alcun altro repertorio).

         Mala Insana. [eggplant]. Poma Amoris. [tomato]. Solanum Somniserum. Solanum halicacabum

      Frankfurt, Germany.. Ca. 1612.. Engraving with handcolor, image 13 1/4 x 8 1/4 inches on sheet size 15 x 10 inches. Spot (approximately 1 inch) to mid right image, a few faint spots to outer margins, otherwise very good condition. From Emanuel Sweert's Florilegium, first issued in 1612, with five subsequent editions. "Emanuel Sweert, a Dutch florist, was at one time Praefectus of the gardens of the Emperor Rudolf II, and it was at his behest that the work was produced. Although it did not contain prices it also served as a catalogue of plants offered for sale by Sweert at the Frankfurt Fair." (de Belder catalogue). The intaglio processes of engraving and etching had only recently been applied to botanical illustration, allowing for a finer, more spontaneous line than the woodcut. This is a lovely image of an eggplant and tomato plant (at that time newly introduced to Europe from the Americas), and two other Solanum plants. .

The Swedish historian Sten Lindroth has called this work "a kind of Olaus Magnus in pocket format" and goes on to describe the content as a short overview of Sweden with undigested quotes from Olaus' history and from other authors; information on the Sami people are for example taken from Ziegler and Damianus à Goes. With its Geatish overtones the Specula aroused some interest on the Continent and was published in two French editions in the 1650s. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         Historical collections of private passages of state, weighty matters in law, remarkable proceedings in five parliaments. Beginning the sixteenth year of King James, anno 1618. and ending ... [with the death of King Charles the First, 1648] ...

      Rushworth (1612?-90), a partisan of Cromwell and Parliament, compiled one of the most famous and still sought-after assemblages of documents on the history of England during the early Stuart period and the Civil War era. Biased though it be, the work is a major source for historians, both amateur and professional, and for students of English law.For the latter, in addition to the obvious parliamentary proceedings, there is the noteworthy inclusion at the end of vol. III of the "Star Chamber Reports" that compose the appendix, and the devotion of all of vol. VIII to the trial of Thomas, Earl of Stratford; the set in hand has the issue of vol. I having no map but two plates, both present. As our caption notes, this vast repository purports to have been made as "a bare narrative" of its "fact[s]"; but it now resonates with a richness far beyond mere chronicle.=> It repays both extended and "dip-in" reading for pleasure.

         Theatrum Orbis Terrarum

      Antwerp: Officina Plantiniana, 1612. - Folio (16 6/8 x 11 2/8 inches). Latin text. Fine engraved allegorical title-page with the magnificent arms of Philip III of Spain on verso by P.A. Schottus (fore and lower margin strengthened on verso with Japanese tissue, and in one or two places renewed), engraved epitaph to Ortelius and portrait of him by Phillip Galle, 128 fine engraved double-page maps, most by Frans Hogenberg, all coloured in a contemporary hand (one or two expert invisible repairs to early fore-margins, a few maps with early repairs to marginal tears, corner of map 69 repaired, a few maps trimmed closely, light worming to gutter margin to early text leaves, but ATTRACTIVE). Handsome modern panelled calf antique. Provenance: anonymous armorial bookplate ("Sola virtus vera nobilitas"). The last of the Latin editions of the "Theatrum orbis terratum" with elaborate engraved preliminaries and an introduction to the cosmography by Michel Coignet, but without the "Parergon" and "Nomenclator Ptolemaicus" bound with some copies. This is a very handsome copy of this comprehensive atlas, with beautiful hand-colouring. The world map "Typus orbis terrarum" is Shirley 122 plate 3, state 1, with the distinctive bulge in the Chilean coastline now removed, with New Guinea as a separate island, with the imaginary great south land "Terra Australis Nondum Cognita" covering the southernmost latitudes, and with the Terra del Fuego and Beach peninsulas marked. "Americae sive Novi Orbis, Nova Descriptio" shows North and South America with the bulge removed from the coastline of Chili, but New Guinea and Terra del Fuego are still shown as peninsulas of the great southern land. "Maris Pacifici", "Ocean of Tranquility", the first printed map (1590) to be devoted to the Pacific Ocean, includes an early depiction of the west coast of North America, Japan and New Guinea, Nova Hispania (Mexico) and the California peninsula are shown quite accurately for the time. Other maps related to America include "Hispaniae Novae sive Magnae. 1579"; "Culiacanae." and the islands of Hispaniola and Cuba; and Peru, Florida. Maps relating to Australia are "Asia Nova Descriptio" which shows New Guinea as a separate island and the north coast of Australia as "Terrae Incognitae Australis"; and "Indiae Orientalis Insularumque Adiacientium typus". "All the elements of the modern atlas were brought to publication in Abraham Ortelius' "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum". This substantial undertaking assembled. the best available maps of the world by the most renowned and up-to-date geographers. each of Ortelius' maps was engraved specifically for his atlas according to uniform formats" (Shirley). Effusively dedicated by Ortelius to Philip III of Spain (1578-1621), king of Spain and of Portugal (as Philip II) whose reign (1598-1621) was characterized by a successful and largely peaceful foreign policy in western Europe and internally by the expulsion of the Moriscos (Christians of Moorish ancestry). The son of Philip II of Spain by his fourth consort, and Habsburg cousin, Anna of Austria. Philip III was pious, benevolent, and "highly virtuous in private conduct. After he became king (Sept. 13, 1598), he showed himself to be indolent and indifferent to his responsibilities. His father revealed his disappointment when he remarked that his son was unfit to govern the kingdoms God had given him and would instead be governed by them. In April 1599 the new king married his Habsburg cousin the Austrian archduchess Margaret. "From the beginning, Philip placed affairs entirely in the hands of a favourite, Francisco Gómez de Sandoval y Rojas, marqués de Denia, later the duke of Lerma-the first in a line of royal favourites who governed 17th-century Spain. Philip's government continued a policy of hostility to the Turks, and in Italy it faced the rivalry of the Republic of Venice and the Duchy of Savoy. In the rest of western Europe, however, a Spanish policy of conciliation ruled. Peace in the West enabled the government to dea

         The Life of the most reverend and religious Prelate John Whitgift, Lord Archbishop of Canterbury

      London: Printed by Thomas Snodham. 1612. - Small 4to., pp. [6], 94, with a woodcut portrait of Whitgift on the verso of the title-page; wanting the signed blank A1 and the terminal blank N4; errata corrected by hand; a very good copy in nineteenth-century brown hard-grained morocco, gilt-ruled, spine lettered direct. Contemporary signature of William Burrough on title-page, armorial bookplate of William Bateman (1787-1823) of Middleton-by-Youlgrave, Derbyshire.First edition. The author of this sympathetic biography had entered Whitgift's service in 1584, at the age of twenty-one, and by 1599 he was comptroller of the Archbishop's household. In the dedication to the new Archbishop, George Abbot, he writes that his 'heart shall never be ungratefull' to 'your Graces late Predecessour', and that his aim is 'to shew mine owne obligation to his memorie, and to make knowne his worthie parts to future ages'. Nonetheless the work is not hagiography but 'an invaluable source for the Archbishop's tenure by an insider' (Oxford DNB). STC 19484. Language: English

      Frankfurt, Germany. Ca. 1612. Engraving with handcolor, image 13 1/4 x 8 1/4 inches on sheet size 15 x 10 inches. Spot (approximately 1 inch circle) to lower left image, otherwise very good condition. From Emanuel Sweert's Florilegium, first issued in 1612, with five subsequent editions. "Emanuel Sweert, a Dutch florist, was at one time Praefectus of the gardens of the Emperor Rudolf II, and it was at his behest that the work was produced. Although it did not contain prices it also served as a catalogue of plants offered for sale by Sweert at the Frankfurt Fair." (de Belder catalogue). The intaglio processes of engraving and etching had only recently been applied to botanical illustration, allowing for a finer, more spontaneous line than the woodcut. This is a lovely image of crocus bulbs.
