[Anon. and John of Austria]
Anvers [Antwerp]: Guillaume Sylvius, 1577. First edition (pp. [73], [82]). Quarto (19 cm), early nineteenth century full calf, five raised bands, fancy gilt titles and decorations to spine and edges. An early document associated with the wars for Dutch independence and the founding of the Dutch republic, describes those events arising out of the repression of Dutch protestants by the appointed agents of Philip II, the Hapsburg King of Spain.  The first section of the book is an account of the various repressive measures undertaken by the king and his agents; the second comprises a number of letters (the originals in Spanish with French translations) to and from John of Austria implicating him in such activities. In 1576, following the death of Requesens, his governor-general for the Netherlands (which included Belgium, Luxembourg, and a piece of northern France), Philip selected his half-brother John of Austria to regain control of the region and put down once and for all the rebellious Dutch cities and towns. Philip employed a mercenary army to occupy the region and prosecute his campaigns against the Dutch protestants, but, partly because he was also fighting an expensive war against the Turks and was therefore often short of funds, his hired armies often went unpaid or at best were paid irregularly. Periodically, then, Philip's mercenaries mutineed and turned for satisfaction on the nearest promising civil population, cutting wide swathes through the country, looting and pillaging as they went. In the result, Philip's occupation of the Netherlands was unpopular even amon … [Click Below for Full Description]

Guevara, Antonio de, Bishop (1480-1545), Sir Geoffrey Fenton
London: 1577: Ralph Newberrie. Printed: 1577. 1539-1608 Quarto in eight's, 7.5 x 5.25 inches. Third edition, both works. A4, A-Z8, Aa-Cc6, Dd4. Ù2, A-Y8. The final blank, Y8, is present in this copy. This is a fine copy in later parchment over stiff boards with gold tooled boards and spine. A few fine worm trails and a bit of light waterstaining do little to impede appreciation of this copy. The signature and stenciled ownership marks of William O'Grady appear on the front free endleaf. The tasteful stencil of a horse's head is repeated on the title page and in the margin of the first page of the letter to the reader. Courtesy books were very popular across continental Europe and England in the sixteenth century. Written to convey proscriptive advice for kings, princes, and members of the court, they may be understood as the very earliest literature of 'self-help.' These books are filled with advice, deeply rooted in history, and firmly guided by standards of morality. Their overwhelming popularity is evidence that they reached an audience far beyond the ruling elite. Any literate person with enough disposable income to purchase such a book would have access to advice meant for princes. The sentiment is thoroughly populist. As we reflect on social conditions of the past, these courtesy books provide at least two important avenues to explore. Firstly, the actual content gives concrete information about social norms and ideals. Secondly, the rippling effects of the publication of these works, their popularity, and the dissemination and adoption of their content into the c … [Click Below for Full Description]

Eden, Richard, and Richard Willes: [Martyr, Peter]:
London: Richarde Iugge, 1577.. Title-leaf, [8],466,[6] leaves, with numerous misnumberings. Historiated initials. Small, thick quarto. Modern crushed red morocco by Pratt, boards paneled and gilt, spine gilt with raised bands, a.e.g. Lightly washed, and very clean internally. A beautiful copy. One of the first English language versions of some of the most important early New World narratives. Eden first published his translations, primarily drawn from Peter Martyr and Francisco Oviedo, in 1555. The present book is not a second edition of that work but an entirely new one, edited by Richard Willes. While it also draws its main text from those two great Spanish chroniclers, a number of additions are present in this volume which did not appear in the 1555 version, and obsolete material is omitted (see Church for a list of additions and deletions from the 1555 edition). The main interest of Willes as editor was in the East, and this has been called "the first comprehensive account of Asia to be published in England," according to E.G.R. Taylor. Additions include an account of Frobisher's explorations in search of a northeast passage, the best 16th-century report on China in English, and the first account of Japan in English. Also included is the first English edition of Ludovico di Varthema's famous travels to Arabia, Persia, India, and possibly the Spice Islands in 1502-7. Varthema, an Italian, learned Arabic, acknowledged Islam, travelled to Mecca, and was one of the first Europeans to report extensively on the East. In all, these extremely important additions make up … [Click Below for Full Description]

MONTE, Guido Ubaldo, Marchese del
Woodcut vignette on title & numerous woodcut diagrams in the text. 8 p.l. (the last a blank), 130 leaves, 1 leaf. Folio, cont. limp vellum (occasional minor dampstaining & light browning, ties gone). Pesaro: H. Concordia, 1577. First edition of a scarce and important book. "From the time of its publication in 1577 Guidobaldo's Liber Mechanicorum was indeed recognized as the most authoritative treatise on statics to emerge since antiquity, and it remained pre-eminent until the appearance of Galileo's Two New Sciences in 1638. It marks the high point of the Archimedean revival of the Renaissance. Not only did Guidobaldo establish statics on the rigorous mathematical procedures of Archimedes, but he also introduced an historiography of mechanics which was designed to legitimise the Archimedean revival."-Rose, The Italian Renaissance of Mathematics, p. 222. Most of the present work is concerned with the theoretical discussion of machines and the introduction contains an historical essay on the engines used by the ancients. Monte (1545-1607), was Galileo's patron and friend for twenty years and was possibly the greatest single influence on the mechanics of Galileo. A very good and large copy preserved in a morocco-backed box. Later endpapers. Ex Bibliotheca Mechanica. ❧ D.S.B., IX, pp. 487-89. Riccardi, II, 178-"Raro."

Small 8vo. 19th-century light brown morocco, title on spine in gilt, gilt-stamped monogram on front cover, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt (by Gruel). From the library of Edmund Engelmann, Mulhouse, with his colored illustrated exlibris on front pastedown. Geneva or Lausanne, (Antoine Chupin & François le Preux), 1577. First French edition of Josias Simler's (1530-1576) main work, his "Republica Helvetiorum". Until the end of the old Confederation, it was the most popular book on Swiss constitutional law, published one year after the first Latin edition in Zurich in 1576. It is assumed that it was translated by the jurist Innocent Gentillet (died in Geneva around 1595). It deals with public, political, and social order. In the first part, Simler offers a history of the confederacies, similar to the chronicles of Stumpf and Tschudi. The second part is a complete and lively presentation of the Swiss Confederation during his own times. Extra illustrated copy with five etchings by Virgil Solis, from his series "Vierzehn Landsknechte mit den Bannern der Schweizer Kantone". These are in fact inverted copies after the cuts by Urs Graf (1521). - Slightly cropped at head, discr … [Click Below for Full Description]

MONTE, Guido Ubaldo, Marchese del.
Pesaro H. Concordia 1577. Folio [29.4 x 19.6 cm], (8) ff. (the last blank), 130, (1) f. [colophon], 1 integral blank, with numerous woodcut diagrams and illustrations in text. Old ownership stamp "Darquier" neatly stenciled on title (the Toulousain astronomer Antoine Darquier de Pellepoix 1718-1802?) Bound in 18th century vellum over paste boards, covers a bit soiled and abraded. Inconsequential soiling and a little spotting to title; even toning to some quires, but generally a fresh and appealing copy. Rare first edition of the author’s first work, generally regarded as the most important treatise on mechanics since Archimedes and a critical influence on Galileo. The work is notable for its commitment to establishing mechanics on a rigorously mathematical basis, for its powerful argument that mechanics and statics are separate sciences and for its insistence that mechanics should not consider abstract and/or abstruse entities but the activity of machines. Stillman Drake particularly emphasizes the importance of the section on pulleys, where Monte reduces them (as he does most other simple machines) to a lever. As such, the work has technological implications for navigation, manufacture, the plastic arts and medicine (f. 245)."From the time of its publication in 1577. [it was] the most authoritative treatise on statics to emerge since antiquity, and it remained pre-eminent until the appearance of Galileo’s Two New Sciences in 1638.

Calvin (1509 - 1564) published his Institutes of the Christian Religion in 1536, and it was this work which established his reputation. The first English edition of any of his sermons was published in London in 1560. The translator, Arthur Golding ( 1535/36 - 1606) studied at Jesus College, Cambridge, and left without taking a degree and began translating the classics while working for William Cecil. He was the first to make a complete English translation of Ovid's Metamophoses (1567), praised by Thomas Nashe "industrious toile in Englishing Ovids Metamorphosis, besides manie other exquisite editions of Divinitie, turned by him out of the French tongue into our own...." John Considine in his extremely fine entry on Golding in ODNB observes that the "majority of his books, almost certainly including those which he himself regarded as most important, are now unread.

Leipzig, (Hans Steinmann), 1577. Kling's important critical edition of the "Sachsenspiegel", at the time still in use in Saxony, here in its second edition. The Hanau jurist Melchior Kling (1504-1571) was a leading figure of the systematic school of German jurisprudence in the 16th century. Publication of his revision of the Sachsenspiegel (1572) was initially delayed for political reasons. Kling's work consists of the following four parts: 1. Recht der Personen (i.e. officials, constitutional law); 2. Der proces (procedural law); 3. Privatrecht nach Ordnung der ersten drei Bücher der justinianischen Institutionen (private law); 4. Von peinlichen Sachen (criminal law). The influence of Kling's work was eclipsed by the "Constitutiones Augustae" of 1572, which later dominated the interpretation of law in Saxony. - Small waterstain in upper margin of title and first four leaves, otherwise a fine copy with wide margins. - VD 16 D 755; not in Adams or STC, (German); Kleinheyer/Schröder, Deutsche Juristen aus 5.
