London: I. Vautrollier for Richard Field, 1588. First Edition, first setting with "Byskye" to A4r. Small Quarto. 18cm x 13cm. 19pp. First edition (in setting that collates A-B). Beautifully bound in quarter pigskin over marbled boards to style, pink title label. new endpapers. Internally clean and bright. Woodcut printer's device to title page. Blind stamp of North Library to title page; from the Tony Sweeney collection. Woodcut headpiece to Aii. A scarce contemporary account issued anonymously by the Chief Advisor (or Spymaster if we're being blunt) of Elizabeth I, regarding the destruction of the Spanish Armada and the subsequent annihilation of many of its survivors who were despatched on the beaches of Galway by the local populace. The final two leaves detail the ships lost and their crews in 1588 with an additional list of men and ships lost in the two months preceding. Apart from the fascinating period detail and providing an understanding of the professional and detailed nature of the Elizabethan propaganda machine under Cecil, this ephemeral pamphlet rarely seen at all (only two or three copies in auction since 1961), occasionally seen bound with "A Copie of A Letter Sent Out of England..." provides a harrowing account of what the enemies of the crown could expect when washing up on the shores of the scepter'd isle: "He inviteth also that there was at the same time another great ship cast away in Tereawley...and all the residue of that ship are slain and drowned...Meleghlen Mac Cab, A Galloglasse, killed 80 of them with his Galloglasse axe..."

Jan Jansson (1588-1664)
JAN JANSSON 1588-1664 Johannes Janssonius, more commonly known to us as Jan Jansson, was born in Arnhem where his father was a bookseller and publisher (Jan Janszoon the Elder). In 1612 he married the daughter of the cartographer and publisher Jodocus Hondius, and then set up in business in Amsterdam as a book publisher. In 1616 he published his first maps of France and Italy and from then onwards he produced a very large number of maps, perhaps not quite rivaling those of the Blaeu family but running a very close second in quantity and quality. From about 1630 to 1638 he was in partnership with his brother-in-law, Henricus Hondius, issuing further editions of the Mercator/Hondius atlases to which his name was added. On the death of Henricus he took over the business, expanding the atlas still further, until eventually he published an 11-volume Atlas Major on a scale similar to Blaeu's Atlas Major. The first full edition of Jansson's English County Maps was published in 1646 but some years earlier he issued a number of British maps in the Mercator/Hondius/Jansson series of atlases (1636-44); the maps were printed from newly engraved plates and are different from the later 1646 issue and are now rarely seen (see Appendix B for further details). In general appearance Jansson's maps are very similar to those of Blaeu and, in fact, were often copied from them, but they tend to be more flamboyant and, some think, more decorative. After Jansson's death his heirs published a number of maps in an Atlas Contractus in 1666 and later still many of the plates of his British maps were a … [Click Below for Full Description]

Feyerabend, Sigmund [ed.]).
Frankfurt, Peter Schmid (for Sigmund Feyerabend), 1587-(1588). - Folio (250 x 363 mm). 2 parts in 1 volume. (5), 1 blank, 302, (7) ff., final blank. (5), 1 blank, 380, (7) ff., final blank. With 2 different woodcut title vignettes and the publisher's woodcut device on the final page. Contemporary blindstamped pigskin over wooden boards with bevelled edges, on five raised double bands, twith two clasps. All edges red. Third and final edition of Sigmund Feyerabend's potboiling compilation of the "devil literature" which flourished in the second half of the Faustian 16th century. "One of the most valuable books for the cultural history of its age" (cf. Hayn/G.). First printed in 1569, Feyerabend's two massive volumes - blatantly entitled "The Theatre of Devils" - aimed to unite all previously published pertinent works. "The clever bookseller had not misjudged his market: the venture proved a happy speculation, and only six years later he went about producing a second edition, which was to include four additional works [.]. The 'Theatrum Diabolorum' appeared for the third and last time in 1587, still printed by Schmidt's press, now including 'ten new' diabolical chapters. By a hardly credible mistake, the 'Melancholic Devil' by Simon Musaeus was included twice in the same volume (fols. 129-136 and 374-380 in part 2) [.]. Naturally, this final two-volume edition was the best-known and the most frequently quoted one in the 17th and 18th centuries, which were still somewhat in touch with the Devil's Literature of the Age of Reformation" (cf. Osborn, p. 38f.). - Binding rubbed and … [Click Below for Full Description]

ORTELIUS, Abraham (1527-1598).
Antwerp: 1588. - Single sheet, (9 x 11 ¼ inches). Fine engraved map of La Huasteca, with original hand color in full, surrounded by a border of yellow wash, the title within a circular cartouche decorated with a bull's head (some oxidation as expected, the margins a bit browned and spotted). First Spanish edition. A BEAUTIFULLY HAND-COLORED engraved map of the Huasteca region of Mexico, from the 1588 Spanish edition of Ortelius's Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, with Spanish text on the verso. La Huasteca is the Mexican region located along the Gulf of Mexico, including parts of the states of Tamaulipas, Veracruz, Puebla, Hidalgo, San Luis Potosí, Querétaro, and Guanajuato. "The map of the Guasteca bears neither date nor author. Because its reckoning of longitude paralleled that of the Culiacan depiction, using Toledo as a base point, Brandmair conjectured that perhaps the two were by the same hand. Even so, it is still unknown and anonymous. "The area is treated in relatively fine detail, from about Tuxpan northward to an exaggerated version of the Rio de las Palmas, close to the Tropic of Cancer. Little attempt seems to have been made to Latinize the native place-names. Again, the text is brief: 'This also is a region of North America and part of New Spain. Along its seacoasts and on its river banks they live on an abundance of fish, but inland on a grain they call maize. As a people they are civilized enough in other ways. The Spaniards have established two settlements, the one called Panuco, named for its river, and the other Santiago of the Valleys. Near a town called Tamatao, … [Click Below for Full Description]

Georg BRAUN & Franz HOGENBERG
Anversa e Colonia, 1588. Grande pianta della città stampata su due fogli, ispirata alla celebre carta del Pirro Ligorio, tratta dal Civitates Orbis Terrarum. Il grande atlante di città edito da Georg Braun e per la maggior parte inciso da Hogenberg contiene 546 vedute e mappe di ogni parte del mondo; è la prima opera di questo genere mai stampata. Questa straordinaria ricostruzione di Roma durante il regno di Augusto, arricchita da una cospicua legenda con 269 richiami, costituisce il lavorò più ambizioso contenuto nel Civitates Orbis Terrarum, del quale oltretutto è una delle sole tre mappe a doppio foglio. Incisione in rame, bella coloritura coeva, leggeri restauri perfettamente eseguiti per il resto in buono stato di conservazione. A good example, with fine original colour, of the Braun & Hogenberg Plan of Rome, first published in the 1588 edition of the Civitates Orbis Terrarum. Braun & Hogenberg's view is based upon the work of Pirro Ligorio. However, the title banner and lower key embellishments are completely revised, the former lacking the strapwork used by Braun & Hogenberg and replaced with a tapestry style fringe, while the lower key is now embellished with images of two nobles. Rome is shown from the west in a bird's-eye view that was a major achievement in its day. It includes the most important buildings from antiquity, several aqueducts, the Aurelian Wall and large arterial streets. The three figures in Roman garb in the foreground underscore the aim of meticulous reconstruction. Mont Testaccio is shown on the far side of the Tiber in the lower right-hand edg … [Click Below for Full Description]
