Holinshed, Raphael.
- Illustrated with 212 woodcuts used multiple times. Thick 4to. Each volume rebacked, retaining the leather on the spines and in the center panels of the first volume. London 1577. First Edition. 2 volumes. Each volume is in a scarce single state of the first edition, as most extant copies are made up from multiple issues from the various members of the stationers consortium responsible for the final publication. The first volume printed by John Hunne, the second by Harrison. The Holinshed Chronicles stand as a landmark of early English publishing for its extensive use of illustrations. While the “Description” sections is without illustration, the “Histories” contain 212 unique woodcuts. Constituting one of the most complete, early accounts of medieval England, The Holinshed Chronicles is a monument of English language publishing. Shakespeare, along with Marlowe and other playwrights of the day, used the Chronicles as a source for history plays. The plot of Macbeth, and portions of King Lear and Cymbeline are sourced from the Chronicles. Shakespeare also used it as a primary source for the historical events of Henry V. Covering history from the Roman era to the time of publication. In 1548 Reginald Wolfe, a London printer, conceived the idea of creating a “Universal Cosmography of the whole world, and there with also certain particular histories of every known nation.” He wanted the work to be printed in English and he wanted maps and illustrations. Wolfe acquired many of antiquarian John Leland’s works and with these he constructed chrono … [Click Below for Full Description]

NICOLAY, Nicolas de
Guillaume Silvius, 1577. 4to. pp. (xxiv) 305 [ie 388] (xxxii). Roman letter, occasional Italic, prefatory epistle in Civilité. Small woodcut printer's device on title, title within typographical border, historiated woodcut initials and typographical ornaments, 60 full page woodcut plates within typographical borders. Slight age-yellowing, some mostly marginal spotting on first and last few leaves, small single worm hole in blank upper margin of thirty ll., the odd spot or thumb mark. A very good, clean copy in C19 English calf, gilt oval armorial device of the Society of writers to the Signet at centers of covers, spine with gilt ruled raised bands, rebacked with original spine laid down. Excellent edition of this seminal and beautifully illustrated work by Nicolay, a detailed account of his travels to the Near East illustrated with sixty spirited full-length portraits of male and female figures of all ages and ranks in local costume. It was first published in Lyons in 1568, with copperplates engraved by Louis Danet from Nicolay's original drawings [two reproduced in Mortimer-Harvard Fr. 386]. According to Mortimer, Nicolay's illustrations are 'the first to represent the costume of the Near East in detail', and were widely copied in the C16th; this edition is illustrated with fine woodcuts by Antonij van Leest, whose initials appear in the first and other plates, after those of the first edition. Dedicated by Nicolay to Charles IX, whom Nicolay served as Valet de chambre and géographe ordinaire, it also contains a long "Elegie" by Ronsard addressed to Nicolay, and a letter … [Click Below for Full Description]

(13 su 16 mancando il secondo, terzo e quarto f. bianchi), 131, (2, di cui il primo bianco), 138-365, (13, con impresa dello stampatore e tavola delle cose notabili), legatura coeva in pergamena, titolo ms. ai dorsi restaurati. Imprese tipografiche ai titoli ed in fine, capilettera decorati, carattere corsivo. Edizione originale della traduzione italiana di Alfonso Ulloa dell' "Historia do descobrimento e conquista da India pelos Portuguezes", pubblicata tra il 1551 e il 1561. Opera di grande importanza per l'esattezza e ricchezza di dati fondati sull'esperienza personale del Castanheda che in India era stato per vent'anni: viene infatti descritta l'espansione portoghese in India e Cina tra 1497 e 1525. In realtà l'opera è parimenti importante per la storia della scoperta del continente americano in quanto descrive nel dettaglio il viaggio di Cabral in Brasile nel 1500 mentre si dirigeva alle Indie Orientali. Ad Alfonso Ulloa si deve anche la traduzione della biografia di Cristoforo Colombo scritta dal figlio Fernando. Esemplare con alcune usuali arrossature, tracce di antiche note di possesso al titolo ed in fine. Sabin 11389; Alden/L. 577/29; Borba de Moraes, pp.142-43; Streit IV, 972. Palau 140962.

Lopes de Castanheda, Fern�o
Venice: Giordano Ziletti, 1577. Two volumes. [17],518,[1]; [13],365 leaves. Contemporary vellum, manuscript title on spines. Front joint of first volume cracked, other joints worn. Early bookplate on front pastedowns. Internally remarkably clean. A beautiful copy. Lopes de Castanheda is considered one of the definitive chroniclers of Portuguese activity in Asia. With the majority of the narrative focused on Persia, Arabia, China, and Molucca, this work is enhanced by the inclusion of details regarding the Portuguese exploration of Brazil. That Book One of the present work was first translated into French by Nicolas de Grouchy, Montaigne's instructor at the Coll�ge de Guyenne, shows that it had a least a partial impact on Montaigne's understanding of the New World, shedding some light on some of the source material for his numerous ESSAYS. Most of the HISTORIA... is devoted to the great Portuguese thrust into Asia in the early 16th century, chronicling their epic expansion to India, the East Indies, and China between 1497 and 1525. Castanheda himself spent some two decades in the Portuguese colonies in the East, and so was well equipped to write this account. It is one of the primary sources for the early Portuguese trading empire, a model that the British were beginning to emulate at the time of publication. Penrose says of the author: "...He wrote an impartial book of outspoken sincerity which was the fruit of years of residence in the East." However, this work is equally important for its American content, being the first to describe in detail the voyage of Cabral … [Click Below for Full Description]

HOLINSHED, RAPHAEL.
. At London, Imprinted for Lucas Harrison, 1577. Small folio. (viii), 22, 1 blank, 518, (26) pp. (Lacking errata leaf). Bound in a late nineteenth century blindstamped binding, restored & rebacked, new endpapers. Illustrated with numerous woodcuts. Scottish part only. A full page woodcut map of Edinburgh is present in some complete sets but is not present in this copy. A good copy of the Scottish part of the first edition of Holinshed's Chronicles, published in 1577 and illustrated with hundreds of woodcuts. A second edition was published in 1587 but that was not illustrated. This first edition was commonly known as the "Shakespeare edition" until W.G. Boswell-Stone and H.R.D. Anders established that it was, in fact, the second edition which Shakespeare employed as the source for ten of his plays. The Chronicles for each of the countries are divided into two sections: "Description" and "History." The work originated with Reginald Wolfe who devoted 25 years to the compilation of the English, Scottish and Irish portions, leaving it unfinished at his death in 1573. Holinshed, who had assisted Wolfe for a number of years, then took over the project. He narrowed his scope to the British Isles and abandoned the plan to publish maps, by then rendered unnecessary by the preparation of Saxton's atlas. Although the Chronicles bear the name of Raphael Holinshed, they were in fact a corporate achievement, produced by men of varying origins and upbringings. Eight men were principally involved in the huge enterprise of writing them, in collaboration with a number of printers and publishe … [Click Below for Full Description]
