Ramusio, Giovanni Battista (1485-1557) and Gastaldi, Giacomo (c. 1500-1556)
Venice, 1556. THE EARLIEST PRINTED VIEW OF A NATIVE AMERICAN SETTLEMENT AND OF MONTREAL CANADA Woodcut: 123/8" x 167/8" References: F. St. George Spendlove, The Face of Early Canada (Toronto, 1958) 5, Plate 1; S. M. Morison, The European Discovery of America (New York, 1971) 410-417; R. V. Tooley, The Mapping of America (London, 1985) 211. This woodcut, published in Venice, is the first printed plan of an urban area in North America and is a particularly valuable record of a Native American settlement. Although largely imaginative, the plan was a close attempt to achieve scientific accuracy. The woodblock for the first state of the map was destroyed by fire in 1557 and for the second issue of 1556 a new woodblock was cut. The third edition (1606) is identical to the second, except that vermin had damaged the block, resulting in areas void of imprint. "La Terra de Hochelaga nella Nova Francia" is based upon Jacques Cartier's second voyage to the New World, begun in 1535, and must have been derived from a sketch or description brought home by the explorer. On October 2, Cartier arrived at the Huron village of Hochelaga, the future site of Montréal. As can be seen in Ramusio's woodcut, cut by Matteo Pagano, Cartier and his men were greeted by over one thousand Native Americans, presenting them with gifts and corn bread. The celebrations continued throughout the night with dancing and bonfires by the river edge. Hochelaga was surrounded by open maize fields and required significant fortification due to its location on one of the favorite warpaths of the Five Nations. It … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ramusio, Giovanni Battista (1485-1557 AND Gastaldi, Giacomo (c. 1500-1566)
Venice, 1556. A FIRST ISSUE OF THE EARLIEST MAP TO DEPICT THE AMERICAS ACCURATELY Woodcut: 121/2" x 163/4" References: Carl I. Wheat, Mapping of the Transmississippi West 1540-1861 (San Francisco, 1958-1963) 1: 21; Philip D. Burden, The Mapping of North America: A List of Printed Maps 1511-1670 (Rickmansworth, 1996), 29-30. Although this map appears in Giovanni Battista Ramusio's Terzo Volvme delle Navigationi et Viaggi it is generally assumed to be the work of the great Italian cartographer Giacomo Gastaldi. In the introduction Ramusio noted that he asked Gastaldi to prepare five different maps for the volume. This map of the western hemisphere is, according to Carl Wheat, "the earliest cartographic reflection" and "an advance of first importance" of European knowledge about the American West. Of groundbreaking significance, it is the earliest obtainable map to accurately depict the Americas. It is the first map to depict the names derived from the travels of Francisco Vasquez Coronado, the first European to travel extensively in what is now the southwestern United States. The account of his journey, conducted between 1540 and 1542, is contained within Ramusio's book and this map includes the settlement names of Quivera, Cicuic, Axa, Cucho, Cibola and Tiguas, as learnt from Coronado. The Sierra Nevadas appear on the map for the first time, knowledge of which was derived from Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo's explorations of the California coastline in 1542. The map also includes an early reference to Florida and depicts its peninsular shape, albeit inaccurately. A nati … [Click Below for Full Description]

Lily, George (cartographer, d. 1559) and "I.H.S." (engraver)
Rome, 1556. THE FIRST COPPER-PLATE MAP OF THE BRITISH ISLES BASED ON CONTEMPORARY KNOWLEDGE Copperplate engraving: 193/8" x 137/8" trimmed with original extended margins References: R.V. Tooley, "Maps in Italian Atlases of the Sixteenth Century," Imago Mundi 3 (1939), n. 269; Lloyd Arnold Brown, The World Encompassed, exh. cat. (Baltimore, 1952), n. 163; Rodney W. Shirley, Early Printed Maps of the British Isles: A Bibliography 1477-1650 (Somerset, England, 1980), n. 60. George Lily, a religious exile from England living in Rome, was the author of the earliest separately published map to show the British Isles as a whole. Lily's map, first issued in Rome in 1546, derived the shape of England and Wales from Sebastian Münster's map of 1540 and also perhaps from a manuscript produced around 1535 known as the Cotton map, which is now in the British Library. Lily, however, included many more place names and topographical features than either model. Rodney Shirley, the great authority on maps of Great Britain, wrote that "the Lily map is one of the finest engravings of the first part of the 16th century and rightly deserves the accord which has been given to it. There are several earlier versions of the British Isles in Ptolemaic atlases but none of these approaches the Lily map in originality, clarity, or elegance." Lily was an English Catholic who, as part of the entourage of Reginald Cardinal Pole, was banished from England in 1543 during the aftermath of Henry VIII's split with the papacy. Lily established himself in Rome, working as an editor of maps in collabor … [Click Below for Full Description]

Africanus, Johannes Leo [Leo, John]

Engraved title-page with the vignette and woodcut initials. 8vo, Late 17th or early 18th century French polished calf, the covers with single fillet line at the borders, elaborately decorated in gilt on the spine within compartments separated by double gilt fillet lines, red morocco lettering label gilt, period marbled endleaves, edges stained red, armorial bookplate. 332 pp. A very fine copy, text very bright and clean, a touch of very occasional toning, hinges strong and sound, the binding in very pleasing and well preserved condition. VERY IMPORTANT AND RARE FIRST EDITION OF THE PRIZED LATIN TRANSLATION OF THE FIRST GREAT WORK ON AFRICA. During the years 1511-1517 Leo Africanus traveled to Fez, Morocco, Tunis, and across the Sahara Desert to Timbuktu. He visited the native states on the Upper Niger to Kario, Houssa, Bornou and Lake Chad. He also made a voyage to Constantinople and Egypt and then crossed the Red Sea to Arabia. He was subsequently captured by the Venetians and presented to Pope Leo X whose name Leo he adopted as his surname. The Pope persuaded him to translate the Arabian manuscript account of his travels into Italian. The account was then translated by Floreanu into Latin. This is generally considered to be the first book published in Europe by a person of primarily African descent. The book was considered the most important on the geography of Africa and an especi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Cicero M. Tullius (ed. Dionysius Lambinus Denys Lambin)
In Aedibus Rouillij, Via Iacobaea, Sub Signo Concordiae, Paris, 1556. four volumes bound in two, much-worn half-leather, probably 19th century rebinding. Volume one is second edition of 1566, place of publication given as 'Parisiis'; volumes 2 and 4 are first editions dated Lutetiae 1565, title page of volume 3 is missing, so edition unknown. The text has been disbound at some period, resulting in creasing and marginal damage to title page of volume 1, and to final few leaves of index in volume 2. Old dampstains are evident in foredge area in parts of volumes 1 and 2. However, there is no loss of text, apart from title page of volume 3, and the binding is now sound and tight. All volumes contain frequent scholarly marginalia in a neat hand, in Latin and Greek. The handwriting of these notes does not correspond to any of the names of previous owners signed on the outer leaves. The latest owner was 'Tomas O Ceallaigh', signature dated 1942. An earlier owner seems to have been Henry Hare (? - surname is blotted out), dated 1698. Photos and further information on inquiry.

Lutetiae (Paris), Aegidium Gourbinum, 1556. 4to. (24x17 cm.). Later limp vellum with ms. title on spine. Title with printers device in woodcut. Initials in woodcut. Ff (4),56 (=(8),102 pp.). 1 full-page woodcut illustration of the quadrant and many diagrams and illustrations in the text. Upper right corner of titlepage repaired with paperpulp, and a tear to corner on F 2 repaired, not affecting the text. Light scattered brownspots, but a good broad-margined copy.. First edition as a separate text published posthumously by Fine's son the year after his father's death. The work was originally issued as part two of Finé's "Protomathesis" from 1532. In this work Finé shows the varied use of the quadrant in measuring distances, proportions, solids etc. as a derivation of the trigonometric quadrant from the eleventh century "quadrans vetustissimus", as also described by Appian in his "Instrumentum...primi mobilis" 1534. - "Finé dealt only with the strictly trigonometric use of the quadrant, determination of the right and versed sines of a given arc - or vice versa - and the products or ratios of two sines. Virtually ignoring the application of its properties to astronomical calculations..."(DSB). "Fine apparently built very large instruments of four or five feet in size and thus was able to graduate them in finer detail than their simpler hand-held cousins. An illustration shows a geometric square with 120 divisions in the quadrant-a significant improvement over the usual dozen or so on the shadow scales of the smaller instruments.
