A very good copy of the first edition of a rare and important travel book. Giovanni Zuallardo (1541-1634) born in Hainaut, Belgium, accompanied the son of a nobleman to whom he was tutor on a pilgrimage to the Holy Land in 1586. This account of his 6 month travels in the Levant contains some of the earliest printed illustrations of buildings and and views of Palestine. Places visited include Venice, Italy, the Tremiti Islands, Southern Mediterranean, Zante, Cyprus, Crete, the surroundings of Bethlehem, Jaffa, Jerusalem and Tripoli. Many of the illustrations were copied by subsequent authors. "A traveller from the Low Countries, Zuallart visited the Holy Land in 1586. The judge, historian and Knight of the Order of the Holy Sepulchre was also a self-taught artist who produced a travel book full of romantic images of the exotic East. His drawings of biblical cities nestling in sand dunes and bathed in sunshine were so accurate and precise that they are still a key source for architectural historians today" London Library.

        The first and second Volumes of Chronicles [The Third Volume]

      London: [by Henry Denham,, 1587]. … now newlie augmented and continued … to the yeare 1586. [Colophon:] Finished in Januarie 1587 … at the expenses of John Harison, George Bishop, Rafe Newberie, Henrie Denham, and Thomas Woodcocke. 3 volumes bound in 2, folio (358 × 237 mm). Bound for exhibition c.1890 in full brown crushed goatskin by Zaehnsdorf (signed in gilt at foot of front turn-ins and with exhibition stamp at foot of rear turn-ins); sides with decorative blindstamped panels incorporating Tudor rose emblems, spines gilt-lettered direct in compartments, others decorated in blind, double raised bands, marbled endpapers, edges gilt on the rough. Black letter, double column; bound without the blanks at the beginning and end of vol. I and the end of vols. II and III, else complete as issued. Of the leaves ordered to be cancelled by the Privy Council (the so-called "castrated" leaves), this copy has all the cancels printed in 1587 to comply with the order, except for vol. III, 6M3?-4 (the trial and execution of Edmund Campion and the Duke of Anjou's progress from London to Antwerp) where the originals survive. Engraved bookplates of Richard Jones, 1707, on titles verso; Money-Coutts family bookplates dated 1889 signed J.D.B., i.e. John Dickson Batten (1860?-1932). Bindings rubbed in places, the occasional minor paper repair not affecting the text. An excellent set. Second, heavily revised and augmented edition of one of the most important English books of the Elizabethan era. The importance of this edition has long been predicated on its value as a Shakespeare source ?- all the conventional English histories, as well as King Lear, Macbeth, and Cymbeline demonstrably depend upon this specific edition ?- but modern scholars also recognise the book as a key product of the emergent English nationalism at the end of the 16th century. Published under royal privilege, and produced with extraordinary care by the best printers and editors available, with contributors including Abraham Fleming, Francis Thynne, and John Stow, it was seen as a national project to reflect English prestige, and carefully edited under political control by the Privy Council (hence the so-called "castrated" leaves). The second edition is vastly expanded, and a huge improvement on the first edition - it is the preferred edition of the book. The ODNB describes it as "a secular equivalent to John Foxe's Acts and Monuments".

All'interno, alcuni errori di numerazione,  numerose illustrazioni o diagrammi a silografia. Rutilio Benincasa  fu astronomo, astrologo, considerato una sorta di stregone del suo tempo. L'opera fu redatta nel 1587 e stampata per la prima volta nel 1593. Il testo ebbe vasta fortuna tanto da meritare numerose riedizioni  fino al Novecento. Dopo la morte dell'autore, l'Almanacco fu aggiornato da altri personaggi, tra cui il più significativo fu proprio Ottavio Beltrano verso la metà del Seicento, dove egli ridistribuì in cinque parti la materia trattata, aggiornò le numerose tavole e le effemeridi calcolate dal Benincasa, ed aggiunse intere sezioni.  Il testo è un vastissimo repertorio di nozioni che riguardano praticamente   tutte le conoscenze scientifiche e le credenze popolari del tempo quali,  le configurazioni della luna in,  le previsioni astrologiche annuali, le tavole sulla struttura del calendario e sulle feste mobili, la cronologia di tutti gli avvenimenti storici più rilevanti,  un trattato di fisiognomica,  nozioni di anatomia e di astrologia medica,  l'influsso degli astri sull'agricoltura,  nozioni di geografia e cosmografia,  un trattato sull'arte della navigazione e sull'orientamento, nozioni di aritmetica e di geometria. Esemplare in discrete condizioni conservative, una  modesta gora circolare lungo poche pagine, alcune fioriture e lievi tracce d'uso generali, assai frequenti per un testo che era notoriamente soggetto a frequente consultazione per la sua vastità di interessi.

        Il Decameron di messer Giovanni Boccacci cittatin Fiorentino, di nuovo ristampato, e riscontrato in Firenze con testi antichi, & alla sua vera lezione ridotto dal cavalier Lionardo Salviati.

      Qvarta editione. Florence, stamperia de' Giunti, 1587. 4to. (31),+ (blank),+ 585,+ (79) pp. Printer's marks on title page, and twice with the device "Nil candidius" (None more brilliant), on the leaf preceding "Tavola" and verso on last leaf. Richly with historiated woodcut intials. Spotting and foxing. Old marginal notes with ink. Modern full calf, gilt spine with raised bands and green label, gilt boards. Book plate of Gunnar Joos. Adams B2159. Brunet I, 1002. This is the fourth edition of Salviati's revision of the Decamerone. The editor Leonardo Salviati first published his revised text in 1582. The counter-reformation and the inquisition in Italy severely criticised Boccacio's classical work Decamerone for its treatment of the clerics and the church, and for its in general questionable morale. The Decameron was even listed in the Index librorum prohibitorum of 1559. Salviati (1540-89) who was an influential literary critic in Florence made this revision in order to end the suppression of the text and restore its influence

        Die drei Grazien: Aglaia, Euphrosyne und Thalia.

      - Kupferstich, 1587, nach Hendrik Goltzius, auf Bütten mit Wasserzeichen: Wappen mit ligiertem Monogramm JS. 30,2:21,5 cm. Provenienz: Sammlung G, nicht bei Lugt. Literatur: Krystof, Abb. 20, S. 228, Bl. 8 der Ornatus-Folge; Bartsch 285; Hollstein 244, I (von III). – Vor der Adresse von Visscher. Brillanter, gestochen scharfer Abdruck mit rau zeichnender Plattenkante und etwas Plattenton. Mit feinem Rändchen ringsum. – Bis auf eine schwache Querfalte, einer minimalen Beschädigung der linken unteren Ecke und zwei winzigen Nadellöchlein von ausgezeichneter Erhaltung. Die Rötelzeichnung von H. Goltzius (1558-1617), nach der Matham das Blatt gestochen hat, befindet sich im Kupferstichkabinett in Berlin. Die Komposition gehört in eine thematisch nur lose zusammenhängende, acht Blatt umfassende Folge mit mythologischen und allegorischen Sujets. Die besondere Bedeutung von Goltzius ist u.a. auf seine Entwicklung einer besonderen Stichtechnik zurückzuführen, die die „farbige" Wiedergabe von Gemälden ermöglichte. 1582 eröffnete der erfolgreiche Künstler in Haarlem eine große Stecherschule. Jacob Matham, sein Stiefsohn und Schüler, brachte Goltzius größten Respekt entgegen und bezeichnete ihn in einer Beischrift zu einem 1616 publizierten Stich, der das Porträt des Haarlemer Kupferstechers zeigt, als „Ideal eines großen Geistes und Kopfes" (zitiert aus: Doris Krystof, Werben für die Kunst. Bildliche Kunsttheorie und das Rhetorische in den Kupferstichen von Hendrik Goltzius, Dissertation, Köln 1993, S. 18). Bei dem aus der römischen Mythologie stammenden Motiv der drei Grazien, den Töchtern des Zeus, die für Glanz, Frohsinn und Blüte, kurz Schönheit und Anmut stehen, handelt es sich um eines der beliebtesten Themen der Bildenden Kunst. Sie wurden meist unbekleidet, sich berührend bzw. haltend dargestellt, sowohl einzeln als auch im Gefolge der Venus, des Bacchus oder Apollo.

        L'arte del navigare, con il regimento della Tramontana e del sole;

      [No place:] , 1587. e la vera regola et osservanza del flusso e reflusso delle acque sotto breve compendio ridotta. Manuscript, quarto; 66 leaves followed by 13 leaves with additions in a different, looser hand. 8 full-page illustrations, 4 with volvelles (movable paper figures). With a dedication to Don Pietro Borgia, Prince of Squillace (d. c.1624), dated 1587, and an accompanying sonnet. Contemporary limp vellum sewn on three cords. Some waterstaining throughout, possibly indicating practical use. Housed in a quarter morocco solander box. Unpublished illustrated handwritten manual of navigation in the Levant as well as in the South Seas, representing the state of Italian navigational art in the second half of the 16th century. This is one of the best known Italian navigational manuals of the period. It is probable that Cesareo composed his navigational treatise before 1567 and that several manuscript copies were subsequently produced, of which this is one. Although it was approved for publication by the papal authorities, no printed edition is known. This is precisely the kind of manual that would have been in the hands of the merchant navigators on whose ships the Venetian jeweller Gasparo Balbi famously travelled to India and Arabia during the years 1579?-88, when he made the first European record of Bani Yas, as well as of Abu Dhabi and Dubai by their modern names. The present copy carries a dedication to Don Pietro Borgia, Prince of Squillace, dated 1587. Squillace is on the east coast of Calabria, southern Italy. The modern town was founded as a Byzantine fortress during the Byzantine reconquest of Italy (6th?-8th century CE). During the 10th century it was subject to frequent raids by the Muslims of neighbouring Sicily, who made it for a short time a strong military base. After Arab rule, the city fell under Norman hegemony. In 1445, it reverted to the Aragonese Kings of Naples but passed by marriage to the infamous House of Borgia, who ruled the city as Princes of Squillace from 1494 to 1735. Don Pietro was lineal descendant of Gioffre Borgia (1482?-1516), son of Pope Alexander VI and younger brother of Cesare Borgia and Lucrezia Borgia. The author's surname, Cesareo, is of Sicilian origin. A few other copies of the text are known: a copy formerly in the National Maritime Museum and now MS 562 at the Beinecke Library (72 ff.) is dedicated to Giulio Colonna and dated 1567, while the British Museum holds a copy (74 ff., MS Add. 25882) with a preface and sonnet to Paolo Sforza, dated 1570. Yet another copy is kept at the Vatican (De Ricci, Census, p. 1899: with the ecclesiastical censors' imprimatur, though no printed edition is known), and an anonymous manuscript is in the Library of Congress (Ms. Ac. 4325). It is noteworthy that the majority of surviving copies are dedicated to powerful Italian noblemen. The text here is divided into three parts (other manuscripts have the same material divided into six), the first of which deals with cosmography and navigation in general, navigation by the North Star (with a particularly evocative volvelle including a tiny ocean-going ship that circles the globe from pole to pole); and navigation in the southern hemisphere, by the Southern Cross and the south celestial pole. Part two describes navigation by the altitude of the sun (with extensive examples and tables, including the meridians throughout the Mediterranean), followed by "la regola della navigatione di Levante in ponente per longitudine". Part three is occupied with the action of the tides, including details on the various hazards of the English Channel and the Strait of Messina, and contains a sketch of the man in the moon, controller of tides.

Spine sunned to a tan colour, otherwise binding in very good state, small armorial bookplate of John Chamier on front pastedown, 2 small pale ink marks on title page, some upper margins trimmed not affecting running title, a few pages lightly age - browned, tiny worm track to lower margin from fo. 93 - 119, small dark spot to fo. 140, no loss of text. Binding tight and firm. A very good copy. Details about the life of Le Sieur de Cholieres (1509? - 1592?) has been the subject of considerable research with little outcome. His family name may have been Dagoneau or Dagonneau and he may have been a lawyer at the parliament of Grenoble. He was certainly an erudite "gentilhomme" and poet who devoted himself to the study of science, literature and art. The discussions he embarks on in Les Apres - Disnees, which are full of information on the customs and manners of his day, are a vehicle for his humour and non - conformism which he claims show him to be a modest pupil of the great Rabelais. In this volume he tackles 9 subjects: 1. Du veiller et du dormir, s'il faut dormer l'apres - disnee; 2. Du Mariage, s'il vaut mieux n'estre marie que de l'estre; 3. De la puissance maritale, ascavoir si le mary peut battre et chastier sa femme; 4. De l'arbre de vie; 5. Du Caquet des femmes; 6. Des Barbes; 7. Des vieillards et des jeunes enfans, s'ils peuvent engendrer; 8. Des Prognostics & predictions Astrologiques; 9. Des lunatiques.

        Strabonis rerum Geographicarum Libri XVII [with] Isaaci Casauboni Commentarius et Castigationes. [The 17 books about Geographical matters by Strabo, with commentary and notes by Isaac Casaubon]

      Eustace Vignon, Geneva 1587 - Two works in one volume, folio, folding engraved double-hemisphere world map in fine condition with large margins, two engraved title-pages, parallel text in Greek and Latin in double columns; 17th-century French calf, spine with raised bands gilt-decorated with the arms of Charles IV Duke of Lorraine in compartments, front board double-gilt ruled with a central laurel wreath motif blind-stamped. Strabo's 1st century world geography. The important first Casaubon edition of Strabo's Geography, his "kolossourgia" or colossal work as he described it himself, with Rumold Mercator's famous double-hemisphere world map.This beautiful copy is from the library of Charles IV Duke of Lorrraine (1604-1675), with his coat of arms stamped in the compartments of the spine. An ally of Gaston d'Orleans, the brother of Louis XIII, and therefore like Gaston opposed by Richelieu, Charles was ultimately forced into abdication. A curious later chapter of his life saw him considering the offer of an Irish delegation to him to serve as Protector of Ireland. Later owners of the book included Nicolas Martingay, archdeacon of Marsal in Lorraine (his fine armorial bookplate was engraved by Sebastien le Clerc) and Abbé Claude, the curé of Marange (Moselle) (a manuscript inscription by him on the title-page is dated 1752).The influential Greek geographer Strabo's work represented 'by far the most important source for ancient geography, a priceless document of the Augustan age, and a compendium of important material derived from lost authors' (OCD). It is the classical world's most significant contribution to the science of geography. Strabo, who travelled widely, studied under both Aristotelian and Stoic teachers, and spent decades in Rome, completing his work early in the first century. Along with the less-known geographers Aratus and Geminus, he promulgated the idea that the torrid zone of the spherical globe was divided from another antipodal continent in the southern hemisphere by an ocean that ran its length.The first surviving attempt to collect all geographical knowledge that existed and to compose a general treatise on the subject, his work was mainly based on ancient Greek sources. It survived in various manuscripts into the age of printing; however earlier printed editions of the text, including the Aldine edition of 1516, were based on corrupt manuscripts and it was not until this edition in 1587 that the great classical scholar Casaubon was able to significantly improve the text based on his access to manuscripts owned by his father-in-law the publisher and humanist Henri Estienne. He would revise it again in 1620 (see below). Casaubon's Strabo remained the basis of all subsequent editions until the nineteenth century.For this important edition the publisher commissioned an elegant double-hemisphere world map from Rumold Mercator. One of few maps that Mercator the younger made, it was partly based on his father Gerard Mercator's great wall map of 1569. It was of course presented on what we know today as the Mercator projection, which could be shown as either a wide oval, or - as here - as a double hemisphere. This was the form in which most world maps would appear for a long time to come; the projection itself quickly gained acceptance and is still the form in which we are most comfortable to see our maps today. Rumold Mercator incorporated this world map into editions of the long-lived and influential Mercator Atlas from 1595 onwards in several editions, until after Mercator's death ownership of the plates passed to the Amsterdam mapmaker Hondius who issued it numerous times until the 1630s. 'The engraving is a model of clarity and neatness, with typical cursive flourishes to the lettering of the sea names. Surrounding the hemispheres is a strapwork border: between them at the top is an armillary sphere and at the bottom an elaborate compass rose?' (Shirley). New Guinea is shown as an island, though with a caption stating that it is not certai [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Nunc denuo recognita, & plurimus locis adaucta. London, Radulphum Newbury, 1587. 8vo. (16),+ 559,+ (blank),+ 551-648,+ (22) pp. Last blank leaf is missing. Foxing and minor spotting, contemporary marginal notes and underlinings in ink, ink spots on p. 4 and 173. Half calf from the mid 19th-century, spine gilt and blind stamped. Title with owner's signature of Johan Rosenhane, dated 1613, and from the library of Ericsberg, with its book plate. ESTC S107382. PPM 101 (for the first edition 1586). Carlander II, 42ff. Second edition of Camden's important work on Britain, with each county described with regards to its archaeology, history and geography. On page 551 a new title-page: "Hiberniae et insularum Brianniae adiacentium descriptio". It was first printed one year earlier, in 1586, and its success was great. In four years it passed through three London editions, besides a reprint at Frankfort in 1590, and a fourth London edition in 1594. All these editions had the supervision of the author. The Elizabethan antiquarian William Camden (1551-1623) is often regarded as the founder not only of antiquarian studies, but also of the study of modern history (PPM). Namnteckningen är troligen Johan Jöransson Rosenhane till Torp och Haneberg (1571-1624), som tillhörde hertig Carls råd. Han var kansler 1602 och blev ståthållare på Nyköpings slott 1612.
