En 1555 Gaspar de Portonaris había impreso en Salamanca esta biblia, encargando su revisión a Domingo de Soto. Apenas cuatro años más tarde, en 1559 figura entre las biblias censuradas en el Índice de libros prohibidos de Valdés-Cano. En 1569, aprovechando cierta tolerancia, Portonaris intenta de nuevo su impresión, para lo que solicita parecer al Estudio salmantino. Durante la revisión del texto surgirá un tenso enfrentamiento entre dos corrientes exegéticas: por una parte, la representada por León de Castro, catedrático de griego, que privilegiaba la prioridad de la Vulgata y la versión griega de los LXX; y, por la otra, la defendida por Gaspar de Grajal, catedrático de Biblia, Martínez de Cantalapiedra, catedrático de hebreo, y fray Luis de León, que seguían las interpretaciones de Vatablo y Pagnino, considerando la versión hebrea la más fideligna. Lógicamente ganaría la primera opción, habida cuenta que tras el Concilio de Trento tan solo se autorizaba el uso de la Vulgata. Con ello, Portonaris tuvo que esperar quince años más para ver reimpresa su Biblia de Vatablo, que contaba con Licencia real desde 1573. François Vatable, fue un afamado filólogo francés, profesor de hebreo en el Colegio de Francia por nombramiento de Francisco I, cuyas anotaciones académicas sobre la Biblia fueron compiladas por sus alumnos dando lugar a las Notas que añadirá el impresor Robert Stephens a la polémica versión de Santes Pagnino publicada en 1545 en París. La Biblia de Vatablo es considerada, al margen de su valor exegético, uno de los grandes monumentos tipográficos del renacimiento español, en la que se ofrecen de manera enfrentadas en doble columna dos versiones latinas de la biblia con sus respectivos comentarios, la de san Jerónimo y la surgida del humanismo filológico. Es reseñable asimismo el uso de caracteres griegos y hebreos. Cabe resaltar asimismo las múltiples censuras a las que se vio sometida y que se consignan manuscritas en la portada del primer tomo, así como los expurgos constatables a lo largo de la obra mediante la tachadura de algunos párrafos. Obra muy rara actualmente en mercado y buscada. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      [Genève, Eustache Vignon], 1585). ____ Première édition (?) Il existe plusieurs éditions sans lieu ni date de ce célèbre et vigoureux pamphlet contre le Pape.

A good copy; some passages underlined, a handwritten index on final endpaper & inner back cover, several ownership names struck through on titlepage & inner front cover.

It was this text, with a slightly variant imprint, and a preliminary dedication, that launched Plantin's series of 24mo classical editions for travellers. 1585 was an important year in Plantin's printing, as following the capitulation of Antwerp to the Spaniards in August he returned to the city after two years of self-imposed exile in Leiden. This 16mo edition was produced by Plantin's son-in-law Jan Moretus at the Antwerp office whilst Plantin was still away in Leiden. For a detailed analysis of this subject see David J. Shaw.

        Historia de las cosas mas notables, ritos y costvmbres, del gran Reyno dela China ... con un Itinerario del nueuo Mundo...

      Rome: Bartholome Grassi, en la Stampa de Vicentio Accolti, 1585. Small octavo, without the blank leaf at end of preliminaries; in nineteenth-century quarter vellum and pebbled paper boards, flat spine gilt with coronets at head and tail of spine and ownership stamp of the Conde de Casa Rojas. The very rare first edition of the most important early history of China and a significant early work on commodities and colonial activities in the East Indies as well as the West Indies and South America.This was 'the most influential and detailed work on China prepared in the sixteenth century... Before the end of the century Mendoza's compendium had been translated into most European languages and had become one of the best-sellers of its day. Its popularity may be accounted for in part by the great and unsatisfied demand which existed everywhere in Europe for a comprehensive and authoritative survey of China in the vernacular languages... In fact, the authority of Mendoza's book was so great that it became the point of departure and the basis of comparison for all subsequent European works on China written before the eighteenth century... ' (Lach, I, pp. 743-4). The bibliographer Brunet claims that this was the first book printed in Europe to contain Chinese characters (two appear on p. 104).Mendoza's book was also important for its information on the East Indies and Southeast Asia. Lach identifies only three major sources for this early period: the letters of the Jesuit missionaries in the far east, narratives by commercial travellers from Europe, and 'the accounts of two Spaniards who obtained their information about the East by way of the Philippines and Mexico... The two Spanish books... are the work of religious writers with experience in America and hence are only collaterally concerned with southeast Asia. The first of these was from the pen of the Augustinian Friar, Juan González de Mendoza [the second was Acosta's: see following catalogue entry]... While this famous book deals primarily with China, as the title indicates, it also includes in its last chapters some interesting materials on Malacca, Indochina, and the Philippines. Mendoza depends for these comments on the experiences there in about 1579 of Martin Ignatius de Loyola, a relative of the first Jesuit general and a Franciscan missionary himself... '.The important final part, the Itinerario del Nuevo Mundo, describes the voyage from Spain to China, via the Canary Islands, Santo Domingo, Mexico, New Mexico, Acapulco, the Ladrones, and the Philippines. Mention is made of commodities to be had in the various places, the condition of the peoples met with, and a wide variety of other useful information. Japan, Cochin China, Malaya, and India are then described in similar fashion - as Parker remarks (p. 131) the book was in short 'an advertisement of nearly all of the Spanish and Portuguese overseas connections'.The book includes a notice of Antonio de Espejo and his exploration of New Mexico in 1583 - the first such notice of the 1583 expedition to appear in print (a fuller account appeared in a subsequent edition of Mendoza's book). There is also material on Cuba, Santo Domingo, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Central America, and the Philippines. Topics of special interest are natural history, Indian landholding practices, and Spanish cultural developments. Ortelius states in his atlas that he obtained more information about America from this work than from any other single source. Some light dampstaining, one page (352) poorly inked by printer with beginning of most lines supplied in contemporary pen & ink, but a very good copy.

        Les Oeuvres de Rémy Belleau

      Gilles Gilles. Our copy meets the first volume of the second collective edition (1585) at the second volume of the first (1578).The first volume contains five books of the poet and the Loves eschanges new gemstone, the Speech from the truth taken from Ecclesiastes, sacred Églogues taken from the Song of Songs, the two days of La Bergerie and celestial Appearances of Aral, a Greek poet (or 198 pieces, encrypted streaming, the text follows the 1578 edition). The second volume contains the Anacreon, various poems (Small inventions, Sonnets, Speech, odes, songs, lamentations, Cartel, epigrams, epitaphs), the comedy The Known and the Tomb of Remy Belleau.XX Binders full red morocco signed Huser, Jansenist back with five nerves, double nets gilded on the cuts and caps, wide gold lace framing of paper contreplats to the tank, all edges gilt. Very nice copy.Remy Belleau quickly joined the college Coqueret alongside Ronsard, Du Bellay, Baïf, then Pleïade in 1554. He published in 1556 his translation of the Odes of Anacreon, who had considerable success with its lightness and its largest accuracy. He was the first translator of the works of Sappho. His Precious stones are something new, combining the symbolism of stones and scientific knowledge. The Sheepfold, pastoral poem evoking Italian poetry, mixing poetry and narrative prose, was also crowned with great success in his time. Belleau was above all a great admirer and connoisseur of Greek poets where he drew his simple and graceful, without affectation. It remains the most famous poet of Pleïade after Ronsard and Du Bellay. He is also very present in the editions of Ronsard. Gilles Gilles à Paris 1585 petit in-12 (7,5x13cm) 304ff. (5p.) et 154ff.

        Zeeland - Gerard Mercator, 1585.

      16DE-EEUWSE KAART VAN ZEELAND'Zelandia Comitatusâ?', kopergravure van Zeeland uitgegeven in 1585 door Gerard Mercator met rechts onderaan een fraai titelcartouche. Uit de atlas Belgii Inferioris Geographica tabulae. In de tijd (?) met de hand gekleurd. Afm.: 35 x 49 cm.Gerard Mercator heeft zelf geen opmetingen verricht in Zeeland; zijn kaart berust grotendeels op de kaart die Jacob van Deventer rond 1550 had gemaakt. In overeenstemming met die kaart ontbreken de wegen.Mercator kiest er voor om in de bovenste helft van de kaart een groot deel van het zuiden van Holland weer te geven. Dit was nodig omdat op zijn kaart van Holland de Zuid-Hollandse eilanden en het Brabantse deel van Holland ontbreekt. Deze tot het graafschap Holland behorende gebieden staan op de kaart van Zeeland. Dit blijkt niet uit de titel van de kaart zelf, maar wel uit de tekst op de keerzijde: 'Zeelandt Comitatus et Hollandiae pars Meridonalisâ?'.Het valt op dat de kaart juist in dit gedeelte is bijgewerkt. Bij Van Deventer bestaat het westen van de Hoekse Waard nog uit een schorrengebied, Die Gorsse van Egmont. Dit gebied werd door de graaf van Egmond ingepolderd en hier werd Beijerlant (Oud Beijerland) gesticht. Piershil is nu geen apart eilandje meer. Mercator geeft deze nieuwe situatie weer.Bij van Deventer is de Biesbosch één watervlakte, maar bij Mercator zijn er ondiepten afgebeeld met daartussen het oorspronkelijk verloop van de Oude Maas. Mercator geeft ook en aantal verdronken dorpen aan.Referentie:â?' Zelandia Comitatus, Geschiedenis en Cartobibliografie van de provincie Zeeland tot 1860â?', D. en J. Blonk (2010), kaart nr. 9.1b.Prijs: € 950,- .

Facendo leva su una serie di usurpazioni, egli sostiene la legittimità della rivolta del popolo (dei Protestanti) contro la corona, che ha progressivamente infranto l'originario patto di lealtà. Una curiosa notazione: nel suo "History will absolve me" del 1953 un Fidel Castro rivoluzionario ma non ancora comunista, cita una sintesi del pensiero dell'Hotman: "between the government and its subjects there is a bond or contract, and the people may rise in rebellion against the tyranny of government when the latter violates this pact". > Adams, I, H-1074, censisce una edizione lionese dello stesso, esattamente con la medesima collazione delle pagine, ma impressa "Guillelmum Leimarium".

        De Roomsche historie oft gesten, door den alder welsprekensten ende vernaemsten Histori-schrijver Titum Livium beschreven. Waer uut niet alleen alle wereltlijcke staten tot vromicheyt ende ridderlijcke manlijcke feyten beweecht ende ghedronghen, maar oock alle ander staten tot grooter recreatien ende gheneuchten des herten ghetrocken sullen worden.

      Leiden, By Ian Paedts Iacobszoon ende Ian Bouwenszoon, 1585. Folio. 4 parts in one vol: (XII),301 leaves. Full restored calf over wooden boards. 30 cm (Ref: Geerebaert CXV,1,a; cf. OiN 242) (Details: Binding skillfully restored in contemporary style, preserving the original leather almost completely; back with 5 raised bands; blind stamped boards, decorated with 3 rolls, the largest one comprising portraits of biblical figures like Urias and Achab, and the others with geometrical and floral motives; 4 title pages, each with the same big woodcut ornamental printer's mark, depicting the fight between David and Goliath; the mottto reads: 'Hy heeft gewelt gedaen doer zynen arm en de hoveerdige in haers herten gedachten verstroit'; woodcut inititials, text printed in 2 colums in Gothic type) (Condition: Cover scratched; the leather on the back shows crackles; the clasps and catches are gone, but their traces have been restored very neatly; new endpapers; first title soiled, its corners renewed by infilling; small and old inscription on the title; wee inventory number written in red ink near the upper edge; a few small ruststains and inkstains, and some faint notes in ink; a small and unobstrusive rusthole in the left lower corner of the first 7 leaves; the tips of 3 corners torn off, without ever reaching any text) (Note: The Roman historian Titus Livius, 59 B.C. - 17 A.D, wrote a huge, and immensely influential history of Rome 'From the foundation of the City' (Ab Urbe Condita libri) in 142 books. Of this work only 35 books are still extant. Of the rest remain only fragments and summaries. He 'set himself to give Rome a history that in conception and style should be worthy of her imperial rise and greatness' (OCD 2nd ed. p. 615). The later Roman historian Tacitus declared that Livy was 'brilliant for eloquence and credibility' (Annales 4.43). Livy was the source and model of a many classical, medieval and later historians and writers, like Lucan for his 'Civil War', for Einhard's biography of Charlemagne, for Petrarch's 'Africa', for Shakespeare's 'Rape of Lucretia' etc. etc. Other humanist historians wrote the history of their state to equal what Livy had done for Rome. The English philosopher 'Francis Bacon declared Livy the best historian, who provided models for behavior (Advancement of Learning, 1605).' (The Classical Tradition, Cambr. Mass., 2010, p. 537) § This Dutch translation of 1585 was first published in Antwerp in 1541. It was the first translation into Dutch of Livy, no translator was mentioned. The 1585 edition repeats the preface of the publisher Jan Gymnick of the 1541 edition. In this preface, and even in the title, the opinion of Francis Bacon is foreshadowed. On the title it is declared that the elite of society, while reading Livy, can learn piety, and gallant and manly behavior. In the preface Jan Gymnick elaborates on this, e.g. 'Hoe wijselijck Scipio zijn beginsel aen ghestelt heeft, hoe mannelijck ende ridderlijck hy dat volbrocht heeft, dat dient eenen yeghelijcken die hem in mannelijcken ende ridderlijcken oft wereldlijcken saken oeffenen sal ende moet'. By some it was believed that Jan Gymnick was the translator of Livy. J.F. Vanderheyden explains in his 'De Livius-vertaling van 1541', Gent, 1959, that this was based on a misunderstanding, because the Leiden publisher of the 1585 edition altered the dedication to the city council of Antwerp at the beginning of the preface into a salute of the 'translator' to his readers, 'Den Oversetter wenscht den goetwillighen leser gheluck ende voorspoet', whereas Jan Gymnick declares in the 1541 edition that he commissioned a faithful translation. So he did not translate Livy himself. Vanderheyden proves in his monography, by comparing texts, that the anonymous translation published by Gymnick was only a sloppy adaptation of one of more previously publised German translations. However on some places the Dutch translator seems to have used the original Latin text. Who the translator, or adaptor was, we cannot say. (A review of Vanderheyden in 'Tijdschrift voor Nederlandse Taal- en Letterkunde, jaargang 78, p. 77/79') (Collation: * -2*6, A-3C6 3D8 (minus leaf 3D8 blank) (Photographs on request)

Title ruled in red. 712, [8] pp. (the final leaf blank apart from the colophon). 12mo, 18th-cent. red straight-grained morocco by Roger Payne with the arms in gilt of Michael Wodhull stamped on each cover, flat spine gilt, a.e.g. Paris: Printed by P. Chevillot for H. de Marnef & the widow of G. Cavellat, 1585. A later edition (1st ed.: Venice: 1507), of Mirandula's popular "Pleasure Garden of Famous Poets," unquestionably one of the most popular reference books of the Renaissance, reprinted countless times throughout the 16th century, in Venice, Paris, Lyon, Basel, Antwerp, and Strasbourg. The "Pleasure Garden" consists of familiar quotations from the 21 major classical Latin poets. This copy comes from the library of Michael Wodhull (1740-1816), Dibdin's "Orlando," a notable classical scholar, and the first English translator of the complete works of Euripdes. This copy has been bound in full red straight-grained morocco by Roger Payne with Wodhull's arms and contains Wodhull's note "Perfect" on the free front-endpaper and on the rear free endpaper "Mar: 22d 1787." Later bookplate and ownership inscription (dated 31.10.1919) of the binding collector Thore Virgin and the book ticket of Rolf Wistrand. Fine copy. Two corrections by Wodhull in the text.

        Gli Ammaestramenti Antichi

      Florence and Paris: Giorgio Marescotti, 1585. First Edition. Very good antiquarian condition. 12mo. 36 ff., 389 (i.e. 379) pp. Each page bordered and delicately printed in italic. Later (18th-century?) Italian vellum, edges stained red, spine label lacking, wear (biopredation?) of the parchment along the head and tail of spine, in no way affecting binding structure, or the text which is immaculate. Tiny wormhole in last two leaves affecting a few letters. A fresh and crisp copy. The editio princeps of a major medieval Italian text by one of the earliest Humanists. The "Lessons to be Learned from the Ancients" is a pedagogic work based on teachings by classical Latin authors such as Virgil, Cicero, Horace, Ovid, Seneca, and Terence, and more than one hundred others, including Thomas Aquinas, Jerome, Boethius, Gregory, and Isidore. "No Italian before Petrarch extolled the importance of studying antiquity as a guide to life more clearly than did Bartolomeo da San Concordio" (Ronald G. Witt, In the Footsteps of the Ancients: The Origins of Humanism from Lovato to Bruni, p. 187). Originally written in Latin as "De documentis antiquorum" (which itself was not printed until 1601), around 1305 Bartolomeo personally translated the present work into the Florentine vernacular with great elegance and lucidity. Described as being both a treatise of philosophy and a manual of virtue, the work is divided into 40 "Distinctions" and became popular because of its moderate and balanced treatment of sins, virtues, and fortune (Christopher Kleinhenz, Medieval Italy: An Encyclopedia, pp. 99-100). Bartolomeo's self-translation was paid for, and is dedicated to, the banker Geri Spini, who holds the distinction of appearing in The Decameron, 6th Day, second story, where Boccaccio describes him as an "empio" or wicked man. Spini one of the main leaders of the Black Guelphs between 1302 and 1308; the compilation of the present text must surely originate from the earliest years of the 14th-century. The introduction is by Orazio Lombardelli (1542-1608), who edited the text of this first edition. Bartolomeo was a Dominican who studied law and theology at the University of Bologna. According to DBI, "he played a significant role, not only as a commentator on canon law, but as a translator of the first order, and in this capacity took part in the work of spreading the culture that was to culminate in Humanism." Bartolomeo's Italian writing was praised in the Renaissance for its elegance and richness of expression. This first edition is SCARCE in commerce: ours is the only copy currently on the market; moreover, only a single copy of the first edition has been traced by the editors of Rare Book Hub, which as of this writing lists 6,623,875 Records in the Rare Book Transaction History, namely the copy offered in Laurence Witten's 1977 Catalogue 7, item 25 ($375). PROVENANCE: Bookplate of Conte Piercarlo Borgogelli (ca. 1900) and his ink-stamp on blank verso of title and blank verso of final leaf. REFERENCES: EDIT16 CNCE 4498.

        Summula [...] casus conscientiae, summa brevitate atq[ue] facilitate complectens. Passau, Matthias Nenninger, 1585.

      1585. (5), 225 Bll., 2 l. w. Bll. Grün ankolorierter Holzschnitt am Titel. Blindgepr. Schweinslederband der Zeit über Holzdeckeln mit 2 intakten Schließen. Hs. Rückenschildchen. Dreiseitiger Farbschnitt. 8vo. Seltene erste Ausgabe des kirchenrechtlichen Handbüchleins für den Beichtigergebrauch; bis ins 17. Jahrhundert nachgedruckt. Der aus Vigevano stammende Dominikaner Cattaneo (1545-1609) war Bischof von Chiemsee. "Im Besitze großer Gelehrsamkeit, mit den akademischen Graden geschmückt, wurde er als Prediger und Professor und in den verschiedenen Ordensämtern mit vieler Auszeichnung verwendet. Dann des Lehramtes enthoben, erhielt er die überaus schwierige Stelle eines Provinzials für Ungarn. Die religiösen und politischen Wirren des Landes und die äußeren Gefahren von Seite der Türken machten dort einen Mann von ungewöhnlichem Geschicke nothwendig. Dieses bewies er aber in solchem Grade, daß ihm auf dem Generalcapitel zu Rom 1589 von neuem die ausgedehntesten Vollmachten übertragen wurden [...] Er hat eine Anzahl wichtiger, zum Theil oft aufgelegter theologischer Werke verfaßt. Besondere Erwähnung verdien[t] seine oft erschienene "Summula casuum conscientiae" [...] Er soll auch ein gewandter Kenner des Hebräischen gewesen sein und ein Werk 'Gegen die Hebräer' geschrieben haben" (ADB). - Der hübsche Einband mit Justitia-Platte vorn und Lucretia-Platte hinten (gering fleckig; kaum berieben).

        Conciliorum omnium, tam generalium, quam provincialium [...] volumina quinque. Venice, Domenico Nicolini [da Sabbio], 1585.

      1585. Folio. 5 vols. (22) ff. (last blank), 24 ff., 1226, (2) pp. (6), (11) ff., 1 blank f., 870, (2) pp. (4), 18 ff., 986, (2) pp. (6), 15 ff., 1 blank f., 927, (1) pp. (2), 14 ff., 791, (1) pp. T. p. printed in red and black throughout. Two different printer's devices to t. p. and final leaf of each volume. Contemp. blindstamped pigskin over wooden boards; 2 clasps each. Nicolini's rare five-volume collection of Synods, surpassing all previous collections (cf. LThK). - All volumes but the first bear a ms. dedication on the front flyleaf: "Dises Buech ist dem Herrn Spitelmaister unnd seinem Convent zu Memmingen von Herr Jacob Fugger dem Eltern verehrt worden Imm December Ao. 1588"; all volumes are marked on their spines as "Donum generosi dni. Baronus Jacobi Fuggeri" (the original flyleaf of vol. 1 is probably lost). Jacob Fugger (1542-98; after 1560: Herr von Babenhausen, Wellenburg und Boos) was the son of the banker Anton Fugger (nephew and successor of Jacob Fugger "the Wealthy"). He was known as "the Elder" to distinguish him from his like-named nephew (1567-1626) who in 1588 was still a student in Rome and later became Bishop of Constance. - Slight worming throughout, more pronounced in vol. 2 (especially near beginning and end; some loss to text). The splendid, exceptionally well-preserved pigskin bindings (slightly rubbed, back cover of vol. 2 showing minute chafing, otherwise perfect) are probably the work of the Augsburg master Jakob Bitmer (cf. Haebler). Adams C 2773. Edit 16, CNCE 13060. LThK VI, 185. OCLC 6967756. Not in BM-STC Italian. Binding's plate stamps: Haebler I, 55f.: I.B. VI, plates I & II.

        A Linnet on a Spray of Barberry. Bodycolor and gold leaf on vellum.

      United Kingdom 1585 - The extraordinary career and oeuvre of the Huguenot artist Jacques Le Moyne de Morgues-the first European artist to visit the new world-have only relatively recently been defined and described. The varied circumstances of his artistic production must surely be unique in the history of art; although large periods of his career are undocumented, he appears to have worked as a court artist in France under Charles IX, is known to have traveled to Florida in 1564 as official artist and cartographer in the ill-fated French attempt to establish a colony there, and to have ended his career as a celebrated botanical artist in Elizabethan London. Until well into the present century, our knowledge of Jacques Le Moyne de Morgues's artistic endeavors was extremely limited and largely confined to the footnotes of inaccessible ethnographic bibliographies. In 1922, however, Spencer Savage, librarian of the Linnean Society, made a discovery that opened the way to the subsequent definition of Le Moyne as an artistic personality; he recognized that a group of fifty-nine watercolors of plants contained in a small volume, purchased by the Victoria and Albert Museum in 1856 solely for its fine sixteenth-century French binding, were in fact by Le Moyne. Savage's publications relating to this discovery prepared the way for subsequent attribution to the artist of other important groups of drawings and watercolors, the most notable being held by the British Museum and the Oak Spring Library, Virginia. The present work is most comparable to those by Le Moyne in the British Museum and is part of a group of miniatures on vellum of plants probably produced between 1585 and 1588. Luxuriously rendered in bodycolor and goldleaf, it depicts a small finch known as a linnet, nestled on a spray of barberry within an ornate painted frame in olive, grey, and gold. The abundant scarlet fruit and warm gold ground create a sense of intimacy while illuminating the bird, and the vibrant colors recall the linnet's bright, cheerful song full of fast trills and twitters. Within this sumptuous setting, the small, grey-brown bird is calm and majestic, at home in a brilliant kaleidoscope of nature. The striking design of this remarkable composition proved a favorite of Le Moyne's, who visited it again in a woodcut illustration of the linnet included in his La Clef des Champs, a pattern book published around the time of the watercolor. Le Moyne was born around 1533 in Dieppe. The first thirty years of his life are undocumented, but it is reasonable to suppose that he trained as an artist in his native town, which was, at that time, a notable center for cartography and illumination. Between 1564 and 1565 he was engaged in the French expedition to Florida. In his highly important account of this transatlantic voyage, known today from a Latin edition published in Frankfurt in 1591 under the title Brevis narratio eorum quae in Florida Americai provincia Gallis acciderunt, Le Moyne explains how the French King Charles IX instructed him to accompany the expedition, headed by the notable mariners Jean Ribault and Rene Goulaine de Laudonniere, as official recording artist and cartographer. Laudonniere's expedition, though resulting in the production of the fascinating Le Moyne/de Bry publication and an important map of the coastal regions of Florida, was ultimately a disaster; the good relations initially established with the native tribes inhabiting the territories around the settlement site at St. Johns soon soured, in addition to which various members of the French party became disaffected, and revolted against their leaders. The final coup de grace came when a Spanish force attacked Laudonniere's stronghold at Fort Caroline, and in the end Le Moyne was one of only fifteen or so survivors of the original party to return safely to Europe; having lost their way, they sailed half-starved into Swansea Bay in mid-November 1565, finally reaching Paris in early 1566. Life in France soon b [Attributes: Signed Copy]
