      Bernhardt Jobin, 1589. In folio, pergamena floscia coeva con al centro dei piatti, aggiunto posteriormente, il supralibros della Royal Engineers Library (un po' sporca di fuliggine), cc. (8), 112 [i.e. 114, ossia 1 - 66, (1), 66 - 112], (1: errata). Titolo stampato in rosso e nero entro una bella cornice architettonica incisa in rame da Matthias Greuter, armi xilografiche di Julius Duca di Brunswig, 21 tavole calcografiche fuori testo (di cui 1 a piena pagina e 20 su doppia pagina, alcune delle quali tuttavia appaiono come fogli singoli, una di esse è inoltre firmata da Matthias Greuter) e numerose figure in legno nel testo. Ottima copia marginosa proveniente dalla bibliteca di Walter Hawken Tregellas (1831 - 1894), scrittore, storico e disegnatore inglese, e dalla Royal Engineers Library (di cui, oltre ai supralibros, sono presenti anche alcuni timbri all'interno deel volume).RARA PRIMA EDIZIONE di questa magnifica opera di fortificazione ed urbanistica, che rappresenta il più importante contributo di area tedesca in materia dopo la Etliche Underricht zur Befestigung der Stett (1527) di Dürer. Essa divenne ben presto il testo di riferimento per la costruzione delle fortezze a nord delle Alpi e lo rimase molto a lungo, fin tanto che non cambiarono le tecniche di guerra e di assedio. Il trattato fu ristampato nel 1599, 1608, 1705 e ancora nel 1756."Speckle writes his treatise from a strongly national motivation as is clear from his preface. He wishes to prove that the Germans are not completely without imagination, and that their invention of printing and of a 'grausam Geschütz' ('fearsome artillery') shows them to be the 'the greatest in the world' in these fields. He attacks, above all, the Italian theorists for their academic disputes, declaring their rules to be outmoded and openly ridiculing their approach ('when someone has no Latin, he cannot understand it, and so has no business to talk about it'). He demonstrates the urgency of fortification, as Dürer has done, by reference to the Turkish threat. Speckle claims to be familiar with fifty or sixty types of fortification, but restricts himself to a few only. He writes in German and avoids foreign words, 'so that every German - such as I too have the honour to call myself - can understand"' (H. - W. Kruft, A History of Architectural Theory from Vitruvius to the Present, London - New York, 1994, p. 115).Oltre a Dürer, Speckle trasse anche ispirazione dall'opera di Francesco de Marchi, Della architettura militare. Egli fu tuttavia soprattutto un uomo pratico, in cui matematica e geometria si univano ad una conoscenza della meccanica e della tecnica maturata sul campo. Alcune delle fortezze e dei castelli riprodotti nel libro appaiono come costruzioni fantastiche frutto della fantasia immaginifica dell'autore. La copia dell'edizione del 1608 conservata a Strasburgo ha tuttavia dimostrato che si tratta in realtà  di costruzioni realmente esistite, in quanto viene specificato il nome di ciascun castello effigiato. Nella seconda parte del trattato Speckle si sofferma poi su come differenziare i progetti a seconda del tipo di terreno su cui si va ad edificare. Descrive infine l'assedio turco di Malta (1565) e la ricostruzione de La Valetta, fornendoci importanti particolari circa il progetto di Francesco Laparelli (cfr. J. Zimmer, Daniel Speckle Architectura Von Vestungen, in: "Architectural Theory from the Renaissance to the Present", a cura di B. Evers e C. Thoenes, Köln, 2003, pp. 511 - 519).I 28 capitoli della prima parte sono dedicati alla progettazione urbanistica ed in essi Speckle descrive in dettaglio un progetto di città  ideale con otto bastioni, dietro al quale traspaiono anche le sue idee politiche e sociali. Di classica forma radiale, il piano prevede una piazza centrale, sede del potere religioso, secolare ed economico, in cui trovano posto la chiesa, il palazzo reale, il municipio e il mercato. Il potere militare viene invece confinato sui bastioni, Speckle pone infatti espressamente la legge civile al di sopra di quella militare. Considerazioni di carattere difensivo determinano poi tutti gli ulteriori aspetti del progetto (cfr. K. Krüger, Albrecht Dürer, Daniel Speckle und die Anfänge frühmoderner Städteplanung in Deutschland, in: "Mitteilungen des Vereins für deutsche Geschichte Nürnbergs", 67, 1980, pp. 79 - 97, inoltre H. de la Croix, Military Architecture and the Radial City Plan in Sixteenth Century Italy, in: "The Art Bulletin", 427/ 4, 1960, pp. 263 - 290)."Later in the sixteenth century, the instruments and surveying techniques essential to the preparation of ichnographic city plans were made available to an increasingly large circle of northern artists and topographers through a number of publications. One of the most interesting of these books is Daniel Speckle's treatise on fortifications, published in 1589. Speckle's method of surveying, which permitted a ground plan of 'any building, city or castle' to be drawn, is closely related to Hirschvogel's procedure. Unlike Hirschvogel's confusing description of his own invention, however, Speckle's chapter on surveying is a model of clarity and verbal economy. Speckle's straightforward and step - by - step exposition of surveying techniques parallels those of Tartaglia and Bartoli earlier in the century. It permitted any interested artist or architect to learn and apply them easily" (J.A. Pinto, Origins and Development of the Ichnographic City Plan, in: "Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians", 35, 1, 1976, p. 49).Nell'Architectura Speckle descrive inoltre vari strumenti di sua invenzione (cfr. I. Schneider, Der Proporzionalzirkel. Ein universelles Analogrecheninstrument der Vergangenheit, München, 1970, pp. 31 - 32).Daniel Speckle (Specklin), originario di Strasburgo, dopo aver completato il suo apprendistato da ricamatore di seta, nel 1552 lasciò la sua città  natale per intraprendere un tour che lo portò in varie località , tra cui la fortezza di Komorn e Györ in Ungheria e, nel 1555, Vienna, dove completò gli studi per diventare architetto sotto la guida del maggior progettista austriaco del tempo, Hermes Schallautzer. Cominciò così la sua attività  di costruttore di fortezze, che lo vide impegnato in diversi lavori ad Anversa (1560) e successivamente in Danimarca, Svezia, Polonia e Russia. Nel 1564 fece ritorno a Strasburgo, dove si sposò e riprese per un breve periodo l'attività  di ricamatore. Già  nel 1567 tuttavia, fu chiamato a Düsseldorf e a Ratisbona per la costruzione di nuove fortezze, e poco dopo, il generale imperiale Lazarus von Schwendi, suo patrono, gli commissionò il progetto delle fortezze di Varaždin, Kashau e Tokai in Ungheria. Nell'ottobre del 1577 Speckle fu nominato architetto ufficiale della città  di Strasburgo, ma, con il permesso del consiglio cittadino, continuò a lavorare anche ad altri progetti a Schlettstadt, Ensisheim, Colmar, Basilea, Veldens, Belfort, Colonia, Heidelberg e Hanau, nonché nel Brabante e in Olanda. Nel settembre del 1587 sottopse il testo della sua Architectura al consiglio di Strasburgo. Morì nell'ottobre del 1589 all'età  di 53 anni (cfr. K.E. Mayer, Die Lebensgeschichte des Strassburger Stadt - und Festungsbaumeisters Daniel Specklin, Stuttgart, 1928, passim, inoltre A.

        The principall navigations, voiages and discoveries of the English nation, made by Sea or over Land...

      George Bishop and Ralph Newberie, 1589. WITH THE RARE WORLD MAP FIRST EDITION. Folio, pp (xvi) + folding map, 1-501(1) 506-643 (xii) (Drake's voyage 644-825 (x). Black letter, some Roman and Italic. Large engraved folding world map after Abraham Ortelius in very good impression, mounted on guard, small repairs to inner border, upper outer corner slightly shaved rounding clouds, very minor repair to verso of one fold. Large, attractive woodcut initials and headpieces. Upper blank margin of t-p restored, that and next neatly repaired at gutter, also blank margins of last two ll. of table. A good, clean, crisp copy in handsome calf antique, gilt ornaments to spine and corners, a.e.g. First edition, of 'the most complete collection of voyages and discoveries, by land as well as by sea, and of the nautical achievements of the Elizabethans' (PMM 105 of the 2nd edn.) with the very frequently missing world map and the rare account of Sir Francis Drake's Circumnavigation (1577-80), as well as Sir Jerome Bowes' voyage to Muscovy in the cancel setting (corrected state). Hakluyt, although not an explorer himself, produced the most significant compilation of voyages of his day: "it is not only an epic of English prose but a unique source of reference to the great discoveries of the 15th and 16th centuries" (National Maritime Museum Catalogue). The work was remarkable in that it not only inspired many of the mercantile and exploratory voyages of later Elizabethan and Jacobean England but was actually used by those venturers in planning and executing their attempts - especially to North America, Russia, and the Far East. 'The arrangement is both chronological and regional, with personal reports by explorers and navigators, merchants and diplomats, the reproduction of documents, sailing direction etc. Book I covers the voyages to North and North-east, Book II South and South-east, and book III America.'(PMM p.63) Hakluyt was a gifted geographer and linguist, "one of the leading spirits in the Elizabethan maritime expansion" (PMM) and had met the foremost explorers of the age such as Drake, Raleigh, Gilbert and Frobisher, and corresponded with Ortelius and Mercator . With remarkable foresight, he saw America and India as key territories for the extension of British colonies and pleaded for an expansion of English interests there. He was a consultant to the East India Company and a patentee of that for Virginia.The present work includes a number of important voyages to the Americas, among them Verazzano's to Florida, Ulloa's and Alarcon's to California, Tomson's to New Mexico, Drake's to the West Indies, the Virginia Settlement Voyages of 1585 and later, as well as voyages to Russia and Africa (including the first voyage to Benin). The account of Drake's Circumnavigation was first published here, and includes his explorations around the Californian coast. Hakluyt initially suppressed it, privately printing the six-page account and inserting it (without pagination, as here) into some copies of the first edition. "Hakluyt had indeed begun to prepare such an account [of Drake's Circumnavigation] but withdrew it so as not to prejudice a collection of Drake's voyages which was in preparation. Permission now came to insert it, not improbably from Drake himself" (Hakluyt Handbook, p. 475). He placed a high premium on the accuracy of his work, and the first setting of the Bowes voyage to Muscovy was suppressed on account of its errors. It is only in some copies (as here) that it is replaced. The impressive folding map, which Hakluyt tells us is "one of the best general mappes of the world" is based on several Ortelius maps, the central oval taken from his third World map of 1587 (Hinde I, p. 179). STC 12625; National Maritime Museum Catalogue (2nd edition) I, p.5; Sabin 29593 "It is scarcely necessary to suggest that the addition of the original version of...Drake's Voyages add greatly to the value of any copy of the work in which they happen to be"; James Ford Bell Library, H9; Alden 589/31; Lowndes III p. 971; Printing and the Mind of Man, 105 (second edition); cf.

Sub sindicatu: nn. virorum et procuratorum Franceschini Garelli, Antonii Burmidae, Andreae Prandi, Iacobi Albesani, Petrini Bossij, Bartholomaei Rebussi...

      Apud Virgilnm de Zangrandis, 1589. In folio, cm 20 x 28, pp. (2) + 25 + (3). Legatura mod. in piena pergamena antica a cartella. Restauro al margine superiore e velatura a tutte le pp. con perdita di parte dei caratteri a stampa senza che venga pregiudicata la leggibilita'. Prima edizione a stampa di questi statuti relativi al borgo di Camerana (Cuneo), redatti precedentemente nel 1471 come indicato a p. 3 dove viene riportato l'atto notarile sottoscritto davanti a Galeoto e Franceschino Del Carretto Marchesi di Savona da parte del Notaio imperiale Lorenzo De Podio, con aggiunte negli anni a seguire, tutte annotate nel testo.  Vengono stabiliti i termini per la raccolta del legname, pascolo del bestiame, raccolta di castagne, ghiande ecc. la cura delle strade, la condotta delle acque ma anche le norme per la soluzione delle liti, il furto, la grassazione, lo stupro, la falsificazione di moneta ecc. Di grande interesse per essere totalmente sconosciuto alle bibliografie consultate (Iccu, Bersano Begey, Biblioteca del Senato della repubblica, Alice Blythe Raviola, Stampatori e librai ad Asti nel XVII sec.) e per rappresentare una delle prime pubblicazioni di Virgilio Zangrandi in Asti, dove era stato invitato a impiantare la sua tipografia dal Consiglio Municipale su spinta dello stesso Vescovo Panigarola. Sicuramente il 1589 e' il primo anno di attivita' astigiana di questo tipografo al quale la citta' aveva concesso alcuni privilegi tra i quali la privativa dell'esercizio della stampa per vent'anni. Appunto con questa data sono censite in Bersano Begey (Cinquecentine piemontesi) 4 pubblicazioni delle quali la prima dovrebbe essere i 'Decreti della prima Sinodo diocesana astense' e che riporta una prefazione a firma di Virgilio e Giovanni Zangrandi in data 14 dicembre 1588 sebbene poi la data di stampa sia il 1589. Anche la mancanza del luogo di stampa crea una serie di domande sulla natura della pubblicazione, certamente astigiana vista la certa presenza della stamperia in citta' e l'utilizzo di una serie di fregi tipografici a ornamento del frontespizio presenti in seguito in altre edizioni dello stesso stampatore e pubblicati nel saggio di Alice Blythe Raviola (Stampatori e librai ad Asti nel XVII secolo). Ultimo curioso elemento da considerare e' la fretta e una certa approssimazione con la quale  e' stato stampato  il frontespizio. Infatti il nome dello stampatore contiene non uno ma ben due refusi: una n al posto della u in Virgilium e una o al posto della e in De Zangrandis. ITA

        Catalogus scriptorum Florentinorum omnis generis, quorum, et memoria extat, atque lucubrationes in literas relatae sunt ad nostra usque tempora. MDLXXXIX. Auctore reverendo patre magistro Michaele Pocciantio Florentino, Ordinis servorum B.M. Virg. Cum additionibus fere 200 scriptorum fratris Lucae Ferrinij alumni sacrae theologiae professoris, atque cum tabulis locuplectissimis ipsum exornantibus.

      Filippo Giunta, 1589. THE FIRST BIO - BIBLIOGRAPHY OF FLORENTINE AUTHORS (bound with:) [MONTI, Zaccaria (fl. 16th - 17th cent.)]. Vita Kyriaci Strozae auctior. Paris, Ex Officina Plantiniana apud Hadrianum Perier, 1604. Two works in one volume, 4to, contemporary flexible vellum, ink title on spine (ties missing), (4), 172, (12) pp. Giunti's device on the title - page + 7, (1 blank) pp. Plantin's device on the title - page. Old manuscript entry on the title "Moreau Mod. Paris"?. Blindstamp of the Theological Institute of Connecticut (now defunct) on the first three and the last three leaves. A very fine, tall copy.Between the two printed texts are bound, in this copy, two leaves bearing manuscript notes. At p. 104, next to the entry Kyriacus Strozza, is a manuscript note which comprises some corrections and emendations to the printed text and also refers us to a more correct manuscript entry added at the end: "Quemadmodum hoc K. Strozae elogium emendandum sit, vide in calce libri"?. At p. 106, there is a similar note next to the entry Laurentia Stroztia (sic).The owner of this copy is probably identifiable in Zaccaria Monti (the author of the printed pamphlet on Ciriaco Strozzi's life bound at the end of the volume), who was clearly interested in the Strozzi family, since Ciriaco was his uncle. In particular, ms. leaf 1 r/v deals with Ciriaco: "Hoc elogium reponendum est pag. 104 in littera K. Kyriacus Strozza Patritius florentinus, Zachariae filius, Graecarum litterarum cultor exactissimus ac omni disciplinarum genere instructissimus, Aristotelicae philosophiae defensor acerrimus"?.. The author of the note recalls that Ciriaco wrote in Greek the missing ninth and tenth book of Aristotle's Politics, and had them published in Florence together with a Latin translation (Giunta, 1562). Then he adds that Strozzi's biography by Monti had been printed in the edition of Aristotelis Stagiritae Opera appeared at Lyon in 1581, which also contains the two books supplied by Strozzi.Ms. leaf 2 r/v is devoted to Ciriaco's learned sister, the Dominican nun Lorenza Strozzi (d. 1591): "Hoc elogium reponendum est pag. 105 in litterar L. Laurentia Strozia, Kyriaci Strozae, summi peripatetici soror,.. scripsit in singula totius anni solemnia hymnos.."? The writer then goes on to mention how she was admired by contemporaries in France and Germany (e.g. Jacques de Thou), and states that these hymns were set to music and published in Paris by Zaccaria Monti (actually the edition was issued in 1601 by D. Binet: Venerabilis Laurentiae Stroziae,.. In singula totius anni solennia hymni, see OCLC, 459114014). On the same page are verses in praise of Lorenza by two German poets, Laurentius Frisaeus and Sebastianus Hornmold (the epitaph by Hornmold, dated 1608, is also given in Italian translation on the following page).There is a strong similarity between the manuscript note on Ciriaco and the text printed by Plantin, but they are by no means identical.I:) FIRST EDITION, published posthumously by one of the author's pupils, Luca Ferrini, of the first bio - bibliography of Florentine authors (which remained the only one until 1722, when Negri's Istoria de' fiorentini scrittori first appeared), also considered as one of the first local bibliographies, i.e. one devoted to a single town and its territory.Poccianti's Catalogus was preceded only by B. Scardeoni's De antiquitate urbis Patavii et claris civibus patavinis, whose first edition was printed at Venice in 1558 (a second appeared in Basel in 1560). Such local bio - bibliographies soon became quite popular in Italy from the end of the 16th century to the late 19th century. (cf. L. Balsamo, Bibliography. History of a Tradition, Berkeley, 1990, p. 75f.).The Catalogus describes the works of about 600 authors arranged in alphabetical order, followed by a classification of them as theologians (incl. philosophers), doctors, lawyers, poets, etc.Born in Florence in 1536, at the age of 7 Michele Poccianti entered the Servi di Maria in his hometown. After graduating in 1565, he was regent of the Florentine Studio for two year (1565 - 1566), prior of the local cloister (1572 - 1574), and professor of philosophy and theology. In 1567 he published the Chronicon rerum totius sacri Ordinis Servorum beatae Mariae Virginis and, two years later, the Constitutiones fratrum Ordinis Servorum beatae Mariae. He died in Florence in 1576 (cf. A. Dal Pino, I frati Servi di S. Maria, Louvain, 1972, I, pp. 95 - 109).Ottino - Fumagalli, 662, Besterman, coll. 1411 - 1412, Negri, pp. 415 - 416, Moreni, p. 201, Breslauer Folter, no. 31, Adams, P - 1677, Edit 16, CNCE28808, Camerini, no. 157.II:) FIRST SEPARATED EDITION (first appeared in Aristotelis Stagiritae Opera, Lyon, Estienne Michel, 1581) of this biography of the Greek scholar Ciriaco Strozzi (1504 - 1565), who taught in Florence, Bologna, and Pisa. The title page mentions no author, but on p. 7 he reveals himself as Ciriaco's nephew Zaccaria Monti. This is an extremely rare pamphlet issued from Plantin's Paris press, of which apparently only 4 copies are know.Catalogo unico, ITICCUCFIE41386, OCLC, 460885177.

Prima edizione a stampa di questi statuti relativi al borgo di Camerana (Cuneo), redatti precedentemente nel 1471 come indicato a p. 3 dove viene riportato l'atto notarile sottoscritto davanti a Galeoto e Franceschino Del Carretto Marchesi di Savona da parte del Notaio imperiale Lorenzo De Podio, con aggiunte negli anni a seguire, tutte annotate nel testo. ÂVengono stabiliti i termini per la raccolta del legname, pascolo del bestiame, raccolta di castagne, ghiande ecc. la cura delle strade, la condotta delle acque ma anche le norme per la soluzione delle liti, il furto, la grassazione, lo stupro, la falsificazione di moneta ecc. Di grande interesse per essere totalmente sconosciuto alle bibliografie consultate (Iccu, Bersano Begey, Biblioteca del Senato della repubblica, Alice Blythe Raviola, Stampatori e librai ad Asti nel XVII sec.) e per rappresentare una delle prime pubblicazioni di Virgilio Zangrandi in Asti, dove era stato invitato a impiantare la sua tipografia dal Consiglio Municipale su spinta dello stesso Vescovo Panigarola. Sicuramente il 1589 e' il primo anno di attivita' astigiana di questo tipografo al quale la citta' aveva concesso alcuni privilegi tra i quali la privativa dell'esercizio della stampa per vent'anni. Appunto con questa data sono censite in Bersano Begey (Cinquecentine piemontesi) 4 pubblicazioni delle quali la prima dovrebbe essere i 'Decreti della prima Sinodo diocesana astense' e che riporta una prefazione a firma di Virgilio e Giovanni Zangrandi in data 14 dicembre 1588 sebbene poi la data di stampa sia il 1589. Anche la mancanza del luogo di stampa crea una serie di domande sulla natura della pubblicazione, certamente astigiana vista la certa presenza della stamperia in citta' e l'utilizzo di una serie di fregi tipografici a ornamento del frontespizio presenti in seguito in altre edizioni dello stesso stampatore e pubblicati nel saggio di Alice Blythe Raviola (Stampatori e librai ad Asti nel XVII secolo). Ultimo curioso elemento da considerare e' la fretta e una certa approssimazione con la quale Âe' stato stampato Âil frontespizio. Infatti il nome dello stampatore contiene non uno ma ben due refusi: una n al posto della u in Virgilium e una o al posto della e in De Zangrandis. ITA

        Giuditta Rappresentata di Gio. Andrea Ploti da Modona

      Piacenza: Giouanni Bazachi, 1589. Original edition of this five-act tragedy with choruses. 8vo. Leaf of title, verso blank; 3pp. dedication; 3pp. panegyrics; 2pp. summary of play; 1p. characters; 5pp. prologue; 120pp. text. Collation: +8, AF8, G12. Woodcut devices on title page, woodcut headpieces, initial letters, several pages set within typographic borders. Expert paper repair to foot of title page, shaving foot of two letters of imprint. 18thcentury vellum, gilt spine label, gilt stamp of the Signet Library to each board, marbled pastedowns, shelf label on inner front cover. A rare tragedy based on the Book of Judith*. Although Judith imagery was prevalent in the Renaissance, the subject is very uncommon in literature and especially in drama. Perhaps the lack of dramatic texts was caused by the proscription against women on the stage: it is hard to stage a play which has femininity and seduction at its center without a woman to act the part. Frank Capozzi, in his chronological list of works depicting or describing the Judith theme, finds only nine Judith dramas before 1600 (including subsequent editions of plays already published, but without Sixtus Birk’s Judith drama [1539] printed in both German and Latin). There probably were a few more printed editions and certainly some in manuscript. Compare this to more than 190 entries for early Judith imagery before 1600 (many on the dramatic subject of Judith holding the head of Holofernes). These images were done in all sorts of media: woodcuts and engravings, oils, panels, frescos, carvings, platters, porcelains, Hanukkah lamps, and even playing cards (251- 285). The formula of the Judith story began to succeed on stage only after the play was tied to a political (anti-Catholic) theme, as in the early German Reformation dramas, or tempered with musical 2 interludes(to provide diversion and a dramatic frame, as in classical theatre) as happens here where the four cardinal virtues appear at the end of each act. The order of appearance of the choral interludes, Prudenza, Giustitia, Fortezza, and Temperanza, mirrors the trajectory of the plot, with each virtue commenting on the events of the previous act. These observations are of a general sort (Judith is never named directly); rather, each chorus interprets the narrative by isolating moments in the drama to exemplify larger moral truths, a strategy summarized in the closing lines of the final chorus, which the virtues deliver as a group: “Imparate / voi quÄ› tutti, Mortali, / il ben seguir, e dechinar da i mali” [Learn, all you mortals here, to follow good and to decline evil] (Brine, Cileti, et al., 373). *Nabuchodonosor, King of Nineveh, sends his general Holofernes to subdue the Jews. The latter besieges them in Bethulia, a city on the southern verge of the Plain of Esdrelon. Achior the Ammonite who speaks in defense of the Jews, is maltreated by him and sent into the besieged city to await his punishment. Famine undermines the courage of the besieged and they contemplate surrender, but Judith, a widow, upbraids them and says that she will deliver the city. She goes into the camp of the Assyrians and captivates Holofernes with her beauty, and finally takes advantage of the general's intoxication to cut off his head. She returns inviolate to the city with his head as a trophy, and a sally on the part of the Jews results in the rout of the Assyrians. The book closes with a hymn to the Almighty by Judith to celebrate her victory. The book exists in distinct Greek and Latin versions. St. Jerome (Praef. in Lib.) says that he translated it from the Chaldaic in one night, "magis sensum e sensu, quam ex verbo verbum transferens.” Two Hebrew versions are known at present: a long one, practically identical with the Greek text, and a short one which is entirely different. With regard to the Septuagint version of the Book of Judith, it should be noted that it has come down to us in two recensions: Codex B or Vaticanus on the one hand, and Codex Alexandrinus with Codex Sinaiticus on the other. The Book of Judith does not exist in the Hebrew Bible, and is consequently excluded from the Protestant Canon of Holy Scripture. But the Catholic Church has always maintained its canonicity (Catholic Encyclopedia, http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/08554a.htm).

A translation published in Geneva from 1560 onwards by exiled Protestants, notable for the colloquialism in Genesis III:7 ("...and they knew that they were naked, and they sowed figge tree leaves together, and made themselves breeches") that has led to the general term "Breeches Bible", although this applies to many different editions printed over many years.

      Dresden, Gimel Bergen, 1589-1590 - Two parts in one vol, folio (305 x 195 mm), pp [xii] 449 [15]; [viii] 205 [6], with the main title printed in red and black within an elaborate woodcut border, the sectional title to the second part within a woodcut border showing mining scenes, two full-page engravings with portraits of Witekind, the last Saxon king, and Charlemagne, and a number of text woodcuts, including coats-of-arms (some of the latter coloured by a contemporary hand); the title a little dusty and with a short tear at upper margin, evenly browned, rear inner hinge with old strengthening with a strip of paper, covering a section of the blank verso of the final leaf, a good copy in contemporary vellum over boards, the binding a bit dusty and with some cracks along hinges, three early inscriptions to title (one inked out at head). £4000First edition of this important early mining book, and with 'great detail of the old mines of Saxony. A storehouse of historical information, especially on the output of gold and silver, some details on magnet-stone found, as well as Wolfram and other metals mined' (Weil).Whereas the first part is an elaborate chronicle of the region, the second deals exclusively with its mining industry and that of its neighbouring regions. Included are brief biographies of earlier writers on the subject, with a lengthier entry on Agricola; the final chapters are on precious stones, salt and saltpetre, various earths, and coal.'The book is also most important for the early history of European porcelain, as Professor W. Prandtl has just proved' (ibid.). Whilst the invention of the process of making porcelain is generally attributed to Freiherr Walther von Tschirnhaus (1651-1708), Prandtl in his essay traces the early history of European porcelain back to descriptions provided by Georg Agricola in De natura fossilium (1546), as well as to a description provided by Conrad Gesner in his De omni rerum fossilium genere (1565). He points out the existence of a thriving industry at that time in Saxony in stonewares that closely resemble porcelain, especially at Waldenburg, and that the required processes in its making were largely known. He highlights Peter Albinus praising the local 'snow white earth' and the noble vessels of worldwide renown produced there.For Prandtl's article 'Zur Vorgeschichte des Meissner Porzellans', see Chymia, Annual Studies in the History of Chemistry 4 (1953), pp 115-127. Provenance: early inscription 'Jacob Wimpfling ze Groning' below another erased inscription of a Jesuit college; foot of title inscribed 'Johan Christoff Kaubl uberlingensis An[n]o 1604'; 19th-century stamp 'K.k. Hof & Kunsthandlung. F.A. Credner' [Prague] and a later collector's stamp 'Prof. Dr. G.C. Laube, Prague' below; Credner's stamp repeated on last leaf versoHoover 43

        THE PRINCIPALL NAVIGATIONS, VOIAGES AND DISCOVERIES OF THE ENGLISH NATION, MADE BY SEA OR OUER LAND, TO THE MOST REMOTE AND FARTHEST DISTANT QUARTERS OF THE EARTH

      London, 1589. Large quarto. Old calf, gilt leather labels. Calf somewhat worn, cracking slightly at bottom of front hinge, extremities bumped. Modern bookplate on front pastedown. Titlepage with old manuscript marks; some leaves with slight staining, other leaves with small marginal tears. A good copy. In a folding cloth box, leather label. Without the map, which is lacking from most copies. The first edition of one of the greatest of all travel books, presenting for the first time the many narratives of exploration and travel compiled by Richard Hakluyt, particularly the spectacular feats of the British adventurers of the Elizabethan Age. Most notable is the first appearance in print of Sir Francis Drake's circumnavigation, here in the special six-leaf inserted form (between pages 643 and 644), lacking from many copies. This 1589 edition of Hakluyt is also very notable for the large amount of information on the "lost colony" of Roanoke, Virginia, organized by Sir Walter Raleigh. Included is the text of Thomas Hariot's "Briefe and True Report of the New Found Land of Virginia," first published just a year before, in 1588, and appearing here in a voyage collection for the first time. There is also a wealth of other firsthand information on the failed venture, including an account of the first voyage to the region led by Philip Amadas and Arthur Barlowe, with their glowing account of the potential of Roanoke. Richard Grenville was the leader of the settlement, and he gives an account of his experiences there in 1585. There are also descriptions of voyages and experiences by colonists in 1586 and 1587, in all providing the earliest full account of the Roanoke adventure. This issue of Hakluyt also contains the second version of the narrative of Sir Jerome Bowes' journey to Moscow, replacing the first version, which Hakluyt found incorrect. Comprehensive and accurate, the Hakluyt compilation is one of the classics of travel literature, and the first English collection of voyages. The first two parts of Hakluyt's text deal with British adventurers in Asia, Africa, the Middle East, the Mediterranean, and Europe. The third part is devoted to America and provides detailed descriptions (and in some cases the first) of the voyages in search of a northwest passage; settlements in the Carolinas, Virginia, and at Roanoke; exploits in Caribbean waters; and narratives of Cabot, Hawkins, Gilbert, Frobisher, Drake, Lane, Hariot, and others. The Drake narrative provides a complete account of the circumnavigation of 1577-80, including Drake's explorations on the California coast. It has remained the primary source for the history of early British exploration, and one of the gems of Elizabethan letters.
