         Histoire de l'expedition Chrestienne au royaume de la Chine, entreprinse par les PP. de la compagnie de Iesus.Lyons, for Horace Cardon, 1616. 8vo. With engraved title-page and full-page engraved portrait of prince Philippe Guillaume of Orange, and large folding plan (42.5 x 15 cm). Contemporary overlapping vellum.

      De Backer & Sommervogel VIII, col. 240; Cordier, Sinica, col. 810; Löwendahl 58; Lust 839; cf. Hanotiau 14 (2nd French edition). The first French edition of "the most influential description of China to appear during the first half of the 17th century" (Hanotiau). Ricci, an Italian Jesuit missionary, arrived in China in 1582. Adopting Chinese dress and learning the language, he succeeded where other missionaries had failed. He served in Nanchang, Nanking, and received permission to establish a missionary post in Beijing in 1610. During these years, he kept a journal which presented the history of Jesuit mission in China from its beginning in 1582 to 1610, the year of his death. This manuscript was translated from the Italian into Latin by Ricci's successor Trigault, who tried to elicit support for the mission in China. Trigault, however, changed many passages of Ricci's journal and augmented it with information based on several Portuguese reports. "The resulting volume contains not only a history of the Jesuit mission but also includes a wealth of information about China in the chapters describing Chinese geography, people, laws, government, religion, learning, commerce and the like" (Hanotiau). Binding rubbed; folding plan with clean tear and slightly wrinkled; some occasional staining. Good copy.

         The New Testament of Jesus Christ, Translated Faithfully into English, out of the authentical Latin, according to the best corrected copies of the same, diligently conferred with the Greeke and other editions in divers languages ?

      John Fogny, Rheims 1582 - First Catholic Bible (New Testament) in English. Collation: a-c4 d2 A-5D4 5E2; [28], 745, [27] pp. With woodcut initials, head and tail pieces throughout. 1 vols. 4to (8-3/4 x 6-1/4 inches). THE FIRST ROMAN CATHOLIC NEW TESTAMENT IN ENGLISH. Very scarce first edition of the important Rheims New Testament, the first Roman Catholic version in English, translated from the Vulgate.Like the Geneva Bible, the Rheims New Testament was "produced by religious refugees who carried their faith and work abroad. Since the English Protestants used their vernacular translations, not only as the foundation of their own faith but as siege artillery in the assault on Rome, a Catholic translation became more and more necessary in order that the faithful could answer, text for text, against the 'intolerable ignorance and importunity of the heretics of this time.' The chief translator was Gregory Martin(c. 1542-1582)? Technical words were transliterated rather than translated. Thus many new words came to birth? Not only was [Martin] steeped in the Vulgate, he was, every day, involved in the immortal liturgical Latin of his church. The resulting Latinisms added a majesty to his English prose, and many a dignified or felicitous phrase was silently lifted by the editors of the King James's Version, and thus passed into the language" (Great Books and Book Collectors 108). While Martin was responsible for the translation, the controversial textual annotations in defense of Catholic doctrine are attributed to Richard Bristow, one of the supervisors of the project; most copies of this edition were purportedly suppressed and destroyed because of these notes (some of which were removed from later editions). The New Testament was issued separately and first, in the hope that its successful sale would finance prompt production of the Old Testament; the two-volume Old Testament did not, however, appear until 1609-10 due to insufficient funds.

         Antique Print-NETHERLANDS-FRIESLAND-GRONINGEN-Ortelius-c. 1582

      - Antique print, titled: 'Oost ende West Vrieslandts beschrijvinghe. Utriusque Frisiorum Regionis Noviss: Descriptio. 1568.' - A nice full color example of Ortelius' map of Groningen, Friesland and part of Drenthe and Overijssel. Also part of Germany is shown. Including a larger compass rose, sailing ships and an elaborate cartouche. Latin tekst on verso. Copperplate engraving / etching with hand colouring on hand laid paper. Description: Source unknown, to be determined.Artists and Engravers: Made by 'Abraham Ortelius' after an anonymous artist. Abraham Ortelius was born 1528 in Antwerp. He studied mathematics, Greek and Latin and travelled a lot across Europe. He established a business in dealing with books and drawing maps. His first remarkable map was a 8 sheet world map in the year 1564, but only three copies have survived. In 1570 he issued the "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum", the first modern "Atlas" with uniformly sized maps in a systematic collection. The term "Atlas" was not used until Mercator introduced it 20 years later. Most of the maps in Theatrum have been engraved by Frans Hogenberg. At the time of publication, the atlas was the most expensive book ever printed. Nevertheless it was a big success and around 7000 copies have been printed until 1612 in many editions and six different languages. Beside the Theatrum, Ortelius compiled a series of historical maps and published it in the "Parergon Theatri" which was bound with the Theatrum from 1579 onwards or published separately. Condition: Good, given age. Light soiling near the bottom of the middle fold. A few small spots. Middle fold partly reinforced on verso. Original middle fold as issued.

         Two manuscript estate indentures relating to Hawkins's property at Chatham, established as a Royal Dockyard in 1567. Signed by Sir John Hawkins and Dame Margaret Hawkins respectively.

      Chatham, Kent: , 1582 & 1599. 2 sheets vellum, folio (measuring 424 x 569 mm and 335 x 503 mm respectively). Manuscript in an English secretary hand. Both with wax seals on vellum tags, that of 1582 bearing Hawkins's "merchant's mark" and that of 1599 his arms (sable on a point wavy, a lion passant or, in chief three bezants, crest, a demi Moor in his proper colour, bound and captive, with annulets in his arms and ears). Prickings visible along left margin (made as a guide for ruling the sheets). Creased where folded, only light soiling, seal on document of 1599 partially cracked but whole, overall both indentures in excellent condition. A superb example of the signature of one of the great sailors of Elizabethan England, the first document showing him acquiring land at Chatham, established as a Royal Dockyard by Elizabeth I in 1567. Sir John Hawkins (1532-1595), merchant, privateer and naval commander, was cousin to Sir Francis Drake "but [Hawkins] arguably knew more about seamanship and did more for his country than Drake. During several voyages in the 1560s Hawkins demonstrated to his countrymen that good profits could be made trading in the Spanish ports of the West Indies. He also introduced his queen and his fellow merchants to the loathsome business of slave trading, where even greater profits could be made by men whose consciences were not of exceeding tenderness" (Harry Kelsey, Sir John Hawkins: Queen Elizabeth's Slave Trader, Yale 2003, p. xiii). Hawkins played a pivotal role in the slave trade, proving "the possibility of extending the long-established English triangular trade via Guinea to Brazil - in which his father had taken a pioneering role thirty years earlier - to a new, and readily available commodity, namely African slaves, and to a new Caribbean destination, where Spanish colonists welcomed slaves as an important constituent element in their internal economy - a valuable, harder-working, and longer-living antidote to the chronic wastage of the aboriginal population, and furnished more cheaply than their own compatriots managed via Seville" (ODNB). The earlier of the two indentures is dated 22 January 1582, signed "John Hawkyns", and bears his wax seal: with this document William Barnes of Chatham (a "chief master" - or captain - in Elizabeth's navy), conveys to Sir John Hawkins of London, then treasurer of the navy, a house, storehouse, two yards, an adjoining garden near Chatham Street, together with a section of land called "The Quay" and some marshlands both belonging to St. Bartholomew's Hospital, altogether procured for £100. The document further mentions a bond in £160 for quiet possession of the house by Peter Hills of Rotherhithe in Surrey, yeoman, to William Barnes (30 January 1577), and recites the lease made 15 October 1545 for The Quay and marsh by George Bowne, master of St. Batholomew's Hospital in Kent, to Walter Hayte of Rochester, tailor, for 99 years, which was by 1582 vested in William Barnes. The witnesses are listed as Walter Portryff, Thomas Maynerd and Miles Toogye. The attached red wax seal bears a fine impression of Hawkins' "merchant's mark" - the design appearing to incorporate a hawk's talon, presumably a play on his name - and a fine example of his signature. In the most famous portrait of Hawkins, at the National Maritime Museum, Hawkins is pictured holding a seal on a ring but close inspection shows that it is not the same as either of the two seals used on these documents. William Barnes would have been well known to Hawkins as he was one of two "chief masters" - the other being Thomas Gray - of the group appointed by Elizabeth to the special investigation commission that was looking into the state of the navy. ODNB records that "Hawkins bought a house in Deptford, and soon afterwards another in the city, in the parish of St Dunstan-in-the-East, which he retained for the remainder of his life" but would presumably also have had lodgings at Chatham while he oversaw the fitting-out of ships. Interestingly, Saint Bartholomew's Hospital, alluded to in both documents, had, following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, been reduced to a "poor show of a decayed hospital" (William Lambarde, Perambulation of Kent,1576); however, when Chatham became a Royal Dockyard in 1567 the meagre estates which had formerly only supported a decayed hospital became more valuable. In fact property values rose to such an extent that an attempt was made to seize the land for the Crown. Dated 20 May 1599, the second document records Dame Margaret Hawkins (d.1619), leasing The Quay and the marsh to the governors of the hospital of Sir John Hawkins in Chatham. A fine example of her signature at foot. A deed of ratification of leasehold estate and surrender of interest in the head-lease, the text recites the lease for 99 years by George Bowne (which subsequently came to Sir John Hawkins, who built a dwelling house on part of the land) and the grant of a lease by the feoffees of such parts of the premises in which Sir John Hawkins claimed a freehold estate (Henry Palmer, kt, Thomas Hughes, Hugh Vaughan and Richard Reynoll, esqs), to Christopher Chapman, merchant, of the messuage, gardens, wharf, storehouse and half an acre of marsh for 21 years from 25 Mar 1597 at £8 (1 May1597). Dame Margaret now ratifies Christopher Chapman's leasehold interest and, as the executrix of Sir John Hawkins, assigns to the governors such interest as she may have in the quay and marsh under the head-lease of 1545. The witnesses are recorded as Anthony Lewes, Richard Holman and John Cureton. The seal attached to this second document shows the arms of Sir John Hawkins and a fine example of Margaret Hawkins's signature. Chatham is still home to the Sir John Hawkins Hospital - an almshouse for sailors - the brainchild of Hawkins, conceived some time during 1593; "the institution received a royal charter in 1594" (Kelsey). It is possible that some of the land purchased in the present indenture of 1582 was used as the site of the Hospital; while the indenture of 1599 indicates the expansion of the Hospital. Hawkins was also a co-founder of the famous Chatham Chest, "a fund for disabled seamen which was founded in 1590 by Drake, Sir John Hawkins and Lord Howard of Effingham. Seamen paid 6d. a month from their pay into the fund; the chest in which the money was kept is now in the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich" (Uden & Cooper, A Dictionary of British Ships and Seamen, 1980, p. 83). Hawkins's position in British history has been summed up succinctly: "This many-talented man was one of the greatest of his age: seaman, navigator, strategist, administrator, businessman, Member of Parliament, innovator and patriot" (ibid).

Frühe Polemik des sächsischen Geistlichen und Dramatikers Rivander (1553-94), nach Jöcher gerichtet gegen seinen Intimfeind (und nachmaligen Mörder), den Sorauer Superintendenten Peter Streuber. Rivander, ein "strenger Lutheraner", stritt mit "Eifer [. gegen die] Calvinisten und Philippisten für die lutherische Orthodoxie." Auch in seinem Hauptwerk, dem Lesedrama "Lutherus redivivus", verteidigte er den Reformator und die Konkordienformel gegen alle, die er des Kryptokalvinismus verdächtigte. "Rivander hatte ein tragisches Ende. Er starb erst 41 Jahr alt an Gift, das ihm nebst seiner Frau und seinem Sohn auf Anstiften des Superintendenten Peter Streuber in Sorau, mit dem er sich über dogmatische Fragen verfeindet hatte, durch einen als Hauslehrer bei ihm lebenden Studenten [in einem Karpfengericht] beigebracht sein soll" (ADB XXVIII, 706). - Am Titel. hs.

      STCN (3 copies); WorldCat (1 copy); cf. Laor, Maps of the Holy Land 139-146, 968 (maps in other eds., 1582-1648); F.T. Noonan, The road to Jerusalem: pilgrimage and travel in the age of discovery (2007), pp. 158-160. Rare eighth(?) edition of the Dutch translation of a work on Biblical travels, written by the German Protestant pastor and theologian Heinrich Bünting (1545-1606), first published in German in 1581 and translated by Matthias Hasaert (1578?-1663). The work proved extremely popular and appeared in almost 80 editions up to the 18th century. "However much a work of the study, this book could be easily taken and read as a travel book. Bünting, although he had never actually visited Palestine, produced an original work by recasting Sacred Scripture into a Reissbuch" (Noonan). The work is divided into four parts. The first deals with the travels from the Old Testament, starting with a description and a woodcut plan of Jerusalem. Two other woodcut folding plates show the Temple of Solomon and the route the Jews took from Egypt to the Holy Land. The second part explains the Biblical currencies and units of measurement. The third part resembles the first, but deals with the journeys from the New Testament. The work closes with a short theological treatise on the four Evangelists. With an owner's inscription on flyleaf. Browned throughout, some marginal smudges, some occasional small spots and one plate slightly torn along the fold. Binding somewhat soiled, spine restored. Overall a fair copy.

         Balet comique de la Royne, faict aux nopces de Monsieur le Duc de Ioyeuse & madamoyselle de Vaudemont sa soeur

      Paris: Adrien Le Roy, Robert Ballard and Mamert Patisson for Jacques Patin, 1582. 4to (231 x 165 mm). Collation: a4 e4, A-T4, including 53 pages of typographical musical notation; 8 full-page etchings of the entertainment and 18 large etchings of pictorial medallions, designed by Jacques Patin, one full-page engraving of the Queen's arms, printers' woodcut device on title, woodcut initials and head-pieces. 18th-century mottled calf, gilt spine; red cloth slipcase. Joints partly split, repairs to spine; the full-page etchings slightly cropped along fore-margin or at bottom, as often. Provenance: Thomas Jolley (1846 owner's inscription on pastedown); Alfred Cortot (1877-1962), Franco-Swiss pianist and conductor (bookplate, small inkstamp on title and several text leaves); Parmenia Ekstrom (1908-1989), ballet historian, author of The Ballerinas: from the Court of Louis XIV to Pavlova, 1972; purchased from Ximenes, 1991. FIRST EDITION. This famous early dramatic fusion of ballet, opera and poetry was commissioned by the Queen Consort of France, Louise de Lorraine (1553-1601), and was performed on 15 October 1581 as part of the festivities celebrating the marriage of her sister, Marguerite de Vaudémont (1564-1625), to Anne, Duc de Joyeuse (1561-1587), King Henri III's favorite. The Italian dancing-master Baltazarini, called Beaujoyeulx, conceived the production, Jacques Patin designed it; La Chesnaye, Salmon and Beaulieu composed the music and poetry. The novelty was manifested in the dancing - the dancers' steps measured and performed in synchronicity with the accompanying music and verse consciously reflecting the rules of Jean-Antoine de Baïf's Académie de Poésie et de Musique. The publisher Patin was also responsible for the lavish illustrations, including a view of the spectators - among them the King and his mother, Catherine de' Medici - and the decorated sets in the hall, without proscenium or separate stage area. The plates further depict the elaborate chariots, most notably the fountain that carried the Queen; sirens, tritons, allegorical figures and other participants in the drama. The gold medallions were presented by the Queen and nymphs of the ballet, all ladies of the court, to the King and noblemen in the audience. Beaujoyeaulx writes of his intentions in the preface: "For, as to the Ballet, even though it may be a modern invention, or at least repeated so far distinct from antiquity that it can be so called, being, in truth only some geometric mixtures of several persons dancing together to a diverse harmony of several instruments, I confess to you that simply represented by [means of visual] impression it would have had much novelty, and little beauty, the recitation of a simple comedy. Also it would have been neither very excellent nor worthy of such a great queen, who wished to do something truly magnificent and triumphant. Because of this I decided it would not be a bad idea to mix one and the other together and to diversify the music with poetry, and most often to merge the two together; for in antiquity they never recited poetry without music, and Orpheus never played without words. I have, however, given first place and honor to the dance, and second place to the substance, which I have called 'comic' more for the beautiful, tranquil and happy conclusion than for the quality of the personages, who are almost all gods and goddesses, or other heroic persons. Thus I have animated and made the Ballet speak, and Comedy sing and resound, and have added many rare and rich scenes and ornaments. I may say that within a single well-proportioned body I have pleased eye, ear, and mind." The mythological subject is Circe's enchantment of Ulysses and his companions and the triumph of the combined gods, representing the French King. It was a coherent choreographic and musical spectacle, staged in the vast Salle Bourbon of the old Louvre palace and lasting from ten in the evening until three the following morning. For analyses of the author's new art form of court ballet, based mainly on this book, see H. Prunières, Le ballet de cour en France avant Benserade et Lully (1914); F.A. Yates, The French Academies of the sixteenth century (1947); M.M. McGowan, L'Art du ballet de cour en France (1963); and Lincoln Kirstein, Four Centuries of Ballet (1984).
