        Phytognomonica...octo libris contenta.

      Naples: Orazio Salviano, 1588. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. Folio (300 x 208 mm). [1-2] 3-320, [22] pp. Signatures: (A-2R)4, (A-C)4. Colophon and imprimatur on 2R4v. Woodcut title-border with the lynx emblem of the Accademia dei Lincei; author's portrait on verso title, 32 text woodcuts. 18th century paste-paper boards, spine lettered in ink (hinges and extremities rubbed, dampstain at top, corners bumped). Internally only little browned (final two leaves of index stronger), professional repairs to small worming at gutter, small hole in 2A1 and 2B2 (affecting two letters in 2A1r), faint dampstain to inner margin of first leaves. Includes index, which is often absent. Provenance: Krown & Spellman. A clean and virtually unspotted copy in very good condition. ----Norman 1724; Adams P1938; Hunt 158; Nissen BBI 463; Mortimer (Italian) 399; Wellcome 5203; Thorndike VI: pp. 422-3. - First edition, first issue with the title dated 1588 (many others with 1589), and with the index, which is lacking in more than half the copies existing. "Porta expanded upon his theory of the correspondence between external form and internal character in this treatise on plant physiognomy. Porta claimed that plant physiognomy was the theoretical side of agriculture; however, his doctrine of signatures - that the exterior form of a plant indicates its medicinal qualities - was more akin to sympathetic magic than to science and led to some bizarre claims, e.g., that herbs growing in rock clefts will help break up bladder stones, and that plants resembling flies and butterflies promote fecundity. Porta's doctrine of signatures was opposed by believers in astrological medicine, and the two factions often quarelled. There are two issues of this edition, the second with a title-page dated 1589. Some copies have additional signatures A-C4 (C4 blank), containing the index." (Norman, 1724). Very Good.

        Panegyrique de l'Henoticon ou Edict de Henry III. Roy de France & de Poloigne, sur la reünion de ses subiets à l'Eglise Catholique, Apostolique & Romaine; avec une sommaire exposition d'iceluy; & ample discours des moyens, de purger les Royaumes d'hérésies, schismes, troubles, & séditions (.).

      - S.l, s. n, 1588. In-8, plein cartonnage vélin ivoire à la Bradel, titre doré et daté en pied, tranches rouges (rel. moderne), (1) f., (14), 368 p. [sign. a8 A-Z8]. Edition peut-être parisienne, publiée à la suite de celle d’Aix-en-Provence (1586), de cet essai représentatif de l’état d’esprit d’une partie des parlementaires de province pendant les Guerres de religion. Avocat général au Parlement d'Aix-en-Provence, Honoré de Laurens (1554-1612), qui deviendra archevêque d'Embrun, était favorable à la Ligue dont il devint l’un des principaux représentants locaux. Il composa cet essai, très largement diffusé, pour glorifier l'édit de Nemours signé par Henri III (18 juillet 1585) qui révoquait tous les édits de tolérance en faveur des protestants. L’auteur se fait le porte-parole d’une politique ultra-catholique et intransigeante dont il récapitule les principes. Il tente de démontrer à travers des exemples pris dans l’antiquité, l’histoire de France, les textes sacrés ou chez certains de ses contemporains comme Jean Bodin, que l’unité religieuse est la condition essentielle pour la conservation et la stabilité des Etats. Il glorifie la mission sacrée des parlements "glaive que Dieu [ ] a mis entre les mains du prince" dans leur combat contre l’hérésie et engage le roi, jusqu’à la menace s’il faiblissait, à lutter sans merci contre le protestantisme. (Pallier, ‘Imprimerie à Paris pendant la Ligue’, 1585-1594, n°117, p. 245. Renouard, III, n°496). L’essai est précédé de de nombreux éloges et sonnets en vers latins ou français des principales personnalités littéraires contemporaines d’Aix- en Provence: B. Sigurian de Clapiers de Vauvenargues, César de Nostredame, Du Perier; Louis de Galaup de Chasteuil, Simon etc. Très bon exemplaire, frais, bien relié par Devauchelle. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        The Historie of the great and mightie Kingdome of China, and the situation thereof: Togither with the great riches, huge Citties, politike gouernement, and rare inuentions in the same. Translated out of Spanish by R. Parke.

      London: Printed by J. Wolfe for Edward White, 1588. Octavo, [8], 410 pp., owner's seal on title-page; period-style speckled calf by Aquarius, spine gilt in compartments between raised bands; calf bookform box. Rare and desirable: the first book on China printed in England, the first work in English devoted exclusively to China, and one of the most important and influential Elizabethan books of exploration and discovery. This attractive copy was once in the famous library of Charles Boxer, with his distinctive red seal on the title-page. Prolific writer, scholar, orientalist, intelligence officer, Camões Professor of History at King's College London, Boxer was also one of the great collectors of his time, and assembled an important library of books on China the far East, and the East Indies.This is the very rare first English translation of Juan González de Mendoza's history of the Chinese empire and beyond. Mendoza (1545-1618) was a Spanish Augustinian priest who travelled to Mexico in 1562; from here he developed a keen interest in the mission to China. Although he never joined the mission, Mendoza amassed a large volume of material gathered by Augustinian Franciscan missionaries to the Philippines and China, as well as gaining access to the impressive collection of Chinese works acquired by Martin de Rada in Fukien in 1575.Mendoza's book was translated into English by Robert Parke, at the suggestion of Richard Hakluyt, from the Madrid edition of 1586, the revised and most complete edition following a first publication in Rome in 1585. Löwendahl notes its rapid translation into seven languages and impact on the European imagination of China 'The reading public was small, and it is probably no exaggeration to say that Mendoza's book had been read by the majority of well-educated Europeans by the end at the beginning of the seventeenth century. Its influence was naturally enormous.' The first major survey of China, 33 editions have been identified of the book in the thirty years following its first publication. The English edition was by far the most significant in terms of its reach and influence. It happens to be an exceptionally rare book today.This was 'the most influential and detailed work on China prepared in the sixteenth century... 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). 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' (namely José de Acosta and Mendoza's account of China). Provenance: Professor Charles Boxer. Title-page slightly dust-soiled, a few leaves a little browned, cut close by the binder (as often) affecting some headlines and catchwords, small rust-hole in T4 resulting in the loss of a few letters; nonetheless an excellent copy, bound without the final blank leaf.

Con otros tres breves tratados de la Excellencia de las principales obras penitenciales: que son Lymosna, Ayuno y Oración. Y agora de nuevo emendado y corregido por el mismo Padre.

      En Barcelona, por Francisco Trincher, 1588. - in-folio. 6ff. 295pp. 2ff. Demi-vélin moderne genre ancien. Rare édition barcelonaise de l'un des principaux ouvrages ascétiques de Luis de Granada (1505-1588), souvent considéré comme son chef d'œuvre. Le livre fut mis à l'Index en 1559, peu après sa parution en 1554 à Salamanque, et il valut à son auteur de sérieux démêlés avec l'Inquisition dirigée par Melchor Cano. "Los teólogos contemporáneos de la Reforma miraban con ojeriza los libros de devoción en lengua vulgar inclusos los de Fr. Luis de Granada, y ésta fué la causa de la prohibición de la Guia de Pecadores y la Oración y Meditación" (Menendez y Pelayo, cité par Palau). Belle marque d'imprimeur sur la page de titre et sur le dernier feuillet. Traces de mouillure angulaire. Palau, II, 399, qui en possédait un exemplaire (avec un autre nom de libraire et sans le feuillet portant la marque d'imprimeur à la fin).

        Prédiction merveilleuse sur les deux ecclypses de Lune & une de Soleil, en l'an present 1588. Avec la figure & sommaire déclaration de toute l'année.

      Lyon, Benoist Rigaud, (1588). ____ Rarissime et seule édition. Nous n'avons trouvé qu'un seul autre exemplaire connu, à la BNF, provenant de la collection James de Rothschild. Cet opuscule a été « composé par Lucas Tremblay parisien, professeur es bonnes sciences mathématiques, & privilégié du Roy par tout son royaume ». Rappelons que son imprimeur lyonnais, Benoit Rigaud, a été durant vingt ans, de 1568 à cette même année 1588, l'éditeur exclusif des « Prophéties » de Nostradamus. Tremblay enseignait les mathématiques à Paris et à Orléans. Il a publié en 1561, une édition revue et augmentée de « L'art d'arithmétique » de Claude de Boissière, et des commentaires sur l'Arithmétique de Gemma Frisius (1585). On connaît de lui deux autres publications astrologiques : « Présages et prognostications pour l'an 1583 » et « Prognostication et présages des lunes et aspects des planettes » (1587). Le titre porte une marque gravée qui semble particulière au mathématicien-astrologue Lucas Tremblay. Portrait de l'auteur gravé au verso, daté de 1530, qui est probablement l'année de sa naissance. Trois petits bois gravés (phases de la lune et un soleil) dans le texte. Diagramme astrologique gravé in-texte. Une auréole brune au bas des pages, le papier a été discrètement consolidé. Une marque de provenance, à la plume au verso de la couverture : « Claudin 26 Novembre 1895 ». Picot, Catalogue des livres de la bibliothèque de M. le baron James de Rothschild N° 215. Inconnu de Baudrier.***** Only edition. Very rare. Only one other copy is known of this booklet (at BNF). Printed by the same printer of Nostradamus. In-12.

        Le diverse et artificiose machine.

      First edition Paris: for the author, 1588. Exceptionally fine copy, with distinguished provenance, of one of the most important books on the science and technology of machines in the renaissance, and one of the most famous illustrated books of the sixteenth century - a tour de force of book design. This is a splendid copy in contemporary French gilt vellum, ruled in red, and entirely untouched. We are not aware of a similar copy in quality since the Norman-Freilich copy (sold Sotheby's 2001, $291,750). Provenance: Francoise d'Espinay de Bretagne, first wife of Henri de Schomberg, comte de Nanteuil (1604 gift inscription on front free endpaper); Princes of Liechtenstein (stamp on title); Otto Schäfer (sold Sotheby's 1995, £38,900). A fundamental book in the history both of technology and of book design, and "one of the most elegantly produced of all technological treatises" (Norman). The scientific import of Ramelli's work resides in his demonstration of "the unlimited possibilities of machines. For example, the dozens of water-powered pumps and mills shown in his treatise clearly demonstrated that non-muscular power could be substituted for horse- or human-power in any mechanical task requiring continuous or repetitive application of force, and the portrayal of over twenty types of water pump ... destroyed the notion that there were necessary limits t the configuration or arrangement of a machine" (ibid.) About half of the engravings depict hydraulic devices, the rest showing military machines as well as fountains, bridges, cranes, foundry equipment, etc., and a smattering of innovative devices such as the famous 'reading wheel' or the bouquet with artificial singing birds. The influence of the illustrations was far- reaching and they were copied in a number of technical books during the next two centuries. "The plates in Ramelli's treatise are artistically as well as technologically superb, the bilingual text beautifully printed, and both plates and text surrounded by handsome borders of typographic ornaments. The reasons for this sumptuousness were twofold: First, Ramelli had dedicated the book to his patron Henri m; and second, he had previously had several designs stolen from him by a trusted associate (probably Ambroise Bachot, later engineer to Henri IV), who published them in corrupt and mutilated form and claimed them as his own. As a result of this experience Ramelli planned his treatise as a particularly lavish work that would be difficult to counterfeit, and produced and published it from his own house where he could maintain absolute control over the project. He succeeded in preventing any pirated editions and made the book so expensive and difficult to produce that it was reprinted only once, in a German edition of 1620, before the twentieth century." (Norman). Dibner 173; Norman 1777; Mortimer French 452; Wellcome 5323; Adams R52; Cockle 788. Folio (354 x 228 mm). Ruled in red throughout. Roman (French) and italic (Italian) types. Engraved title within architectural frame by Leonard Gaultier, each leaf of text printed within a border of typographical fleurons, engraved portrait of Ramelli by Gaultier on title-page verso, 194 engravings (174 full-page, 20 full-sheet) numbered I-CXCV (CXLVIII and CXLIX combined on a single engraving), three signed with the cipher 'JG' (CL-CLII). (Four leaves comprising n1 [f.97], o1 [f.105, mis-signed n1], o8 [f.112] and n8 [f.104] misbound, very short minor tears to i4 and T2, tiny marginal chips to i8 and V3, small marginal chip repaired on P2, occasional light spotting and browning.) Contemporary French limp vellum, covers framed with gilt double fillet enclosing gilt centre ornament of laurel leaf tools, flat gilt spine, lettered at head of spine in ink manuscript, gilt edges (small stain on upper cover of binding, spine lightly soiled, lacking ties), modern green cloth slipcase.

In 1612 he married Elisabeth de Hondt, the daughter of Jodocus Hondius. He produced his first maps in 1616 of France and Italy. In 1623 Janssonius owned a bookstore in Frankfurt am Main, later also in Danzig, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Berlin, Königsberg, Geneva and Lyon. In the 1630s he formed a partnership with his brother in law Henricus Hondius, and together they published atlases as Mercator/Hondius/Janssonius.Under the leadership of Janssonius the Hondius Atlas was steadily enlarged. Renamed Atlas Novus, it had three volumes in 1638, one fully dedicated to Italy. 1646 a fourth volume came out with "English County Maps", a year after a similar issue by Willem Blaeu. Janssonius' maps are similar to those of Blaeu, and he is often accused of copying from his rival, but many of his maps predate those of Blaeu and/or covered different regions. By 1660, at which point the atlas bore the appropriate name "Atlas Major", there were 11 volumes, containing the work of about a hundred credited authors and engravers. It included a description of "most of the cities of the world" (Townatlas), of the waterworld (Atlas Maritimus in 33 maps), and of the Ancient World (60 maps). The eleventh volume was the Atlas of the Heavens by Andreas Cellarius. Editions were printed in Dutch, Latin, French, and a few times in German."

        Testamentum Novum, sive novum foedus Iesu Christi, D.N. Cuius Graeco contextui respondent interpretationes duae: vna, vetus altera, Theodori Bezae, nunc quartò diligenter ab eo recognita...

      [Genevae]: [Henricus Stephanus], 1588. Folio (33 cm; 13"). [6] ff., 555, [1 (blank)] pp., [8] ff. (lacks final blank leaf); lacks vol. II (Epistles, Revelation). An interleaved and heavily annotated copy of the Gospels and Acts of "Beza's third major edition [of the Greek New Testament]. The text follows that of the second major edition (1582) with only five exceptions" (Darlow and Moule). => One should note that the title-page proclaims this "quarta editio," and that this is Estienne's third folio printing of Beza's N.T.    Beza's New Testament Greek text is here accompanied by his Latin and the Vulgate (i.e., Catholic Latin) translations, the trio appearing in parallel columns on each page with => extensive notes that often fill as much as one-third to one-half of a page and with parallel references additionally set in the margins. The volume's title-page is printed in red and black and bears Henri Estienne's printer's device; a different finely wrought woodcut headpiece opens each book, with each column on those pages bearing a woodcut initial at its head, and a few of the books of the N.T. end with woodcut tailpieces.    Evidence of readership: An interleaved copy with => the vast majority of the leaves bearing an early 19th-century reader's notes and annotations. The notes cite references published as late as 1809 and it is clear that the natively German-speaking scholar was comfortable in Greek, Hebrew, Latin, and English.    Provenance: Ownership signature on title-page of Leon St. Vincent. Later in The Howell Bible Collection, Pacific School of Religion (properly released; no markings).    The paper stock used for the interleaving has the classic ProPatria watermark and that and its countermark match Churchill's 151, which has a starting date of 1799.         Darlow & Moule 4650; Adams B1711. On the interleaves' watermarks, see: Churchill, Watermarks in paper in Holland, England, France, etc., in the XVII and XVIII centuries. 19th-century half vellum with German pastepaper over boards, spine with tinted and tooled label, text recased and new endpapers; vol. I (only) of this production, without the Epistles and Revelation. Title-page creased and dust-soiled, all leaves before pp. 9/10 rodent-gnawed in lower outside corner with loss of paper but not of text or manuscript annotation, and a bit of light waterstaining to rearmost leaves only. => An important edition and a singular copy.

        Lagenia Anglis Leinster - [The County of Leinster].

      Original, hand-coloured engraving. The engraving (the plate) itself 50.5 cm x 40 cm Mounted: c. 70 cm x 60 cm Original Map with beautifully coloured cartouche and border-colours. Johannes Janssonius (1588, Arnhem buried July 11, 1664, Amsterdam) (born Jan Janszoon, in English often incorrect Jan Jansson) was a Dutch cartographer and publisher who lived and worked in Amsterdam in the 17th century. Janssonius was born in Arnhem, the son of Jan Janszoon the Elder, a publisher and bookseller. In 1612 he married Elisabeth de Hondt, the daughter of Jodocus Hondius. He produced his first maps in 1616 of France and Italy. In 1623 Janssonius owned a bookstore in Frankfurt am Main, later also in Danzig, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Berlin, Königsberg, Geneva and Lyon. Elisabeth Hondius died in 1627 and he remarried one Elisabeth Carlier in 1629. In the 1630s he formed a partnership with his brother in law Henricus Hondius, and together they published atlases as Mercator/Hondius/Janssonius. Under the leadership of Janssonius the Hondius Atlas was steadily enlarged. Renamed Atlas Novus, it had three volumes in 1638, one fully dedicated to Italy. 1646 a fourth volume came out with "English County Maps", a year after a similar issue by Willem Blaeu. Janssonius' maps are similar to those of Blaeu, and he is often accused of copying from his rival, but many of his maps predate those of Blaeu and/or covered different regions. By 1660, at which point the atlas bore the appropriate name "Atlas Major", there were 11 volumes, containing the work of about a hundred credited authors and engravers. It included a description of "most of the cities of the world" (Townatlas), of the waterworld (Atlas Maritimus in 33 maps), and of the Ancient World (60 maps). The eleventh volume was the Atlas of the Heavens by Andreas Cellarius. Editions were printed in Dutch, Latin, French, and a few times in German. After Janssonius's death, the publishing company was continued by his son-in law, Johannes van Waesbergen. The London bookseller Moses Pitt attempted publication of the Atlas Major in English, but ran out of resources after the fourth volume in 1683. (Wikipedia)

        Manuscript document: indenture concerning the town of Howden

      1588 - PEARSON, Robert. Manuscript Indenture Regarding the Tithing of Howden. Entered into by Robert Pearson, Lewis Mordaunt, Marmaduke Grymston, and others. [Howden]: October 5, 1588. Large folio parchment sheet (25 by 26 inches), with original pendant wax seal. $1500.Original legal document in fine Elizabethan secretarial hand, tithing the corn crops of the farming town of Howden to establish a prebend, presumably for the local cleric. With original wax pendant seal.Modern-day Howden, in East Yorkshire, is still very much rural farmland: it tracks its borders "from Elm Tree Manor across the road heading between the two-works complex at Howdendyke to meet with the Trans Pennine Trail on the banks of the River Ouse, and so on over flat farmland to join the east bank of the River Derwent at Loftsome Bridge." This 1588 agreement between three town leaders establishes a stipend ("prebend") for an unnamed party, presumably the office of the local church (since the term "prebend" at the time almost always referred to the stipend given a clergyman). Funds were to be obtained from a tithe on sheaves of corn. Original seal bears the monogram WB.Folded parchment with usual soiling to exposed surfaces, wax chipped (not affecting clearly-impressed seal). A fine specimen of the Elizabethan legal hand.
