        Testam. veter. Biblia Sacra .. accesserunt libri qui vulgo dicuntur Apocryphi adjunximus NT libros ex sermone Syro ab eodem Trem. et ex Graeco a Th. Beza in Latinum versos .. Sec. cura Fr. Junii.

      Genf 1590 b. J. de Tournes für A. Wechel Erben, Cl. de Marne u. J. Aubry - 6 Tle in 2 vol in 4to.. Eine der zahlreich. lat. Tremell.-Junius-Beza-Bibelausg. , deren EA (zunächst nur das AT) in Lieferungen 1575-1579 erschien (Stuttg. D 846) u. eine eigenständige lat. Übers. - aus dem Hebr. (v.Tremellius) u. - was die AK betrifft - aus dem Griech. (v.F. Junius) ist. Nach dem Tode von Tremell. (1580) lag die weitere Hrsg.-Verantwortung allein bei dem Schwiegers. Junius, m. dessen Einverständnis bereits 1579 die Bibel um das NT erweitert werden sollte, u. zw. in England durch den Bibeldrucker Christ. Barker (1529-1599, vgl. DNB III 195 ff), was 1580/79 geschah (vgl. DM II 2 p 952 Nr. 9166), u. zw. mit Tremellius lat. NT Version ex sermone Syriaco, die 1569 in Genf (EA) erschien, (vgl. DM II 3 p 1530/31 Nr. 8949 = II 1 p 8/9 Nr. 1421). Seitdem kam es in England zu einem regelrechten Boom d. Tremell.-Junius Bibel, was 1585 in der Bibelausgabe m. der doppelten NT-Version gipfelte: Näml. zum lat. NT-Text 'ex sermone Syriaco' gesellte man noch den lat. NT-Text 'ex Graeco a Theod. Beza' (Stuttg. D 913), u. zwar nach d. Beza-NT graece/lat. Genf 1582 (vgl. Stuttg. C 127). Das bedeutet die Text-Kulmination für die lat. Tremellius-Junius-Beza-Bibel, deren Auflagenhöhe - was man schnell einsah - hätte höher veranschlagt werden müssen. Gedanken für eine neue Aufl. waren unvermeidbar u. die sollte dann schließlich - bei Beibehaltung der 'Doppelspitze' - eine erweiterte Neuauflage sein. Herausgabe u. Druck der EA hatte bei d. hugenott. Druck- u. Verl.-haus Wechel gelegen; die Kosten der EA hatte Junius alleine getragen (vgl. Junius 'Lesergruß' <Pio et benevolo lectori> in fine direkt vor Anfang 'Genesis'). Er setzte sich mit Wechel in Verbindung u. man wurde einig: Wechel ist nur Verl. u. den kpl. Druck übernimmt de Tournes., früher in Lyon, infolge der Relig.wirren dann schließl. ab Ende 1585 ganz in Genf. Der Aufbau der Bibel Lo 1585 sollte beibehalten bleiben: 2-spalt. Druck der Bibel-Kapitel nebst Marginalien nur für die Verweisungen u. der wissenschaftl. Apparat 1-spaltig unter das jeweils ganze Kapitel.. Die seit der EA verfaßten Widm.vorreden blieben Bestandteil der Bibel u. sind in vorlieg. Bibel in den 6 Teilen wie folgt vorhanden: Die neuen Widm. allein v. F. J. von 1587 (vor Genesis) an Friedrich IV. v.d.Pf. (1574/83-1610) u. von 1589 (vor d. Evang.) an den engl. Staatsmann Francis Walsingham (um 1530-1590, vgl. DNB 59, 231 ff) stehen jeweils ganz am anfang. Dazu kommen die bisherigen Vorreden v. beiden Autoren, näml. (Teile 1+2) an Friedr. III. v.d.Pf. (1515/59-76), an (Teil 3) Pfalzgraf J. Kasimir (1543-92), an (Teil 4) Landgraf Wilhelm IV. (der Weise) von Hessen-Kassel (1532/67-92) u. - v. F. J. allein - (Teil 5) an Wilh. I. v. Oranien-Nassau (1533-84).- Die Kollationen f. die 6 Bibelteile - einschl. aller Titelbl. - stellen sich wie folgt: I. (6) Bl (*6), 228 pp (a-o8 p2). II. (4) Bl (A4), 271, (1) pp (A-R8). III.

        Viaggio dell'Indie Orientali.

      Venice, Camillo Borgominieri, 1590.. 8vo (147 x 96 mm). (16), 159 (but: 149), (23) ff. Woodcut title device (with touches of contemp. colour), woodcut foliated initials and woodcut navigational diagram on fol. 144. Contemp. limp vellum with ms. title to spine; lacks ties. Stored in custom-made gilstatmped morocco clamshell case.. First edition of this travelogue by the Venetian state jeweller and merchant, containing much information useful to the contemporary merchant, including rates of exchange, duties, travel routes and distances as well as a detailed account of the pearling grounds in the Arabian Gulf. As only recent research by B. J. Slot (cf. below) has revealed, Balbi was "the first writer to record the place names between al-Qatif and Oman that are still in use today" (UAE: A New Perspective, 74). Thus, the present volume constitutes the earliest printed source for the history of the UAE, Qatar, and Oman. Balbi's "interest in the area lay in the pearls that came from the oyster beds of which the most extensive are those in the waters around al-Bahrayn, those off the Qatar peninsula and especially those in the western waters of Abu Dhabi. Either taking his information first-hand from a local individual or using a navigator's list, Balbi recorded place-names along the coast of modern Qatar, the United Arab Emirates and the Sultanate of Oman [...] he is the first to refer to many of these places using the names by which they are known today" (G. King, cf. below). According to Slot, "practically none of the names of places on the coast between Qatar and Ras al Khaima occur in other sources before the end of the eighteenth century" (36). The present work is also of the utmost significance for "includ[ing] the first European record of the Bani Yas tribe" (UAE yearbook 2005, 46) - the first printed mention of the largest and most important tribe of the Arabian Peninsula, from which emerged both the Al Nahyan and the Al Maktoum dynasties, today's ruling families of Abu Dhabi and Dubai. - Rare: the present original edition is recorded in no more than some 20 copies worldwide (only two in the U.S., according to OCLC); most libraries hold only the Rome 1962 reprint or the microfiche edition (New Haven 1974). An Arabic translation was published in 2008 (OCLC 298925737); an English translation has not been prepared to this day. - An excellent copy from the library of the French librarian and theological writer (Joseph) Leon Clugnet (1848-1920) with his ownership, dated 1882 and numbered 335, on the title page. - Brunet I, 618.

      Frankfurt, Theodor de Bry, 1590. 30,5 : 41,8 cm.. Burden 'The Mapping of North America' #76, Cumming 'The South-East in Early Maps' #12. - Eine der bedeutendsten Karten der kolonialen nordamerikanischen Geschichte. 'Theodor de Bry's Karte von Virginia nach John White, ist einer der bedeutendsten kartographischen Meilensteine der kolonialen nordamerikanischen Geschichte. Es ist die genaueste Karte des sechzehnten Jahrhunderts von Amerika. Sie wurde zum Prototyp des Gebietes, auch noch lange nach James Moxon's Karte aus dem Jahr 1671 ... Dies ist die erste Karte von Virginia (heute weitgehend North Carolina) und dokumentiert die ersten Versuche Englands, die Neue Welt zu kolonisieren.' (Philip D. Burden, The Mapping of North America, #76) Die Karte zeigt das Gebiet von Chesapeake Bay zum Cape Lookout und beinhaltet mehr Wissen als jede erhaltene Handschrift. Sie stellt auch das erste Druckerzeugnis mit der Verwendung des Namens Chesapeake (Chesepiooc Sinus) dar. Der Kupferstich zeigt die Lage indianischen Dörfer, englische Schiffe sind auf dem Meer dargestellt, während Kanus der Indianer Binnengewässer durchstreifen. Die Karte ist im ersten Band von de Bry's Großen Reisen erschienen. - Untere Bugfalte auf 3 cm hinterlegt. Etwas fleckig im rechten Rand, kleiner brauner Fleck rechts von der oberen rechten Kartusche. Scharfer und kräftiger Abdruck mit breitem Rand. Sehr gutes Exemplar dieser seltenen und gesuchten Karte. - One of the most significant cartographical milestones on colonial North American history. 'Theodor de Bry's map of Virginia, after John White, is one of the most significant cartographical milestones on colonial North American history. It was the most accurate map drawn in the sixteenth century of any part of that continent. It became the prototype of the area until long after James Moxon's map in 1671. Most notably those of de Jode 1593, Wytfliet 1597 and Metellus 1598. This is the first map to focus on Virginia (now largely North Carolina), and records the first English attempts at colonisation in the New World.' (Philip D. Burden, The Mapping of North America, #76) The map shown the area from Chesapeake Bay to Cape Lookout. It exhibits greater knowledge than on any surviving manuscript. With the first printing use of the name Chesapeake (Chesepiooc Sinus) and the second of Roanoke. The map shows the position of the Indian villages, English ships are shown at sea, while Indian canoes traversing the inland waters. The map was published in the first part of de Bry's Grand Voyages. - Lower centrefold backed on 3 cm. Some soiling in right margin and a small brown spot right to the upper right cartouche. A sharp and strong impression with wide margin. A very good copy of this rare and sought-after map. This map rarely survived in such good conditions.

        Geographical Playing Cards

      n.p.: n.p., 1590. Near fine. Hardcover. Two suits (of four) of the first set of playing cards to depict English and Welsh counties. Sometimes known as Elizabethan Playing Cards or Memory Cards. The East and West suits only, lacking the North and South suits. Printed on thin vellum from engraved copper plates, without suit marks and with plain backs, each card has a small map within a square frame consisting of different designs; in a reserved space above is text as to the areas of the county indicated, while in a similar space below some details are given as to the nature and products of the soil. Each card is numbered in Roman numerals I to XIII at corners of the map centers. The suits are distinguished by the patterns of the square space (interior of the framework) surrounding the maps, and might be called scrolls for the &#39;East&#39; counties and clouds for the &#39;West&#39; counties. (Not present are the North and South suits.) Each suit has two additional cards, one considered the title, and an ending card with additional textual information. Present here is (1) Heraldic plate with the Royal arms, the designer&#39;s initials (W.B.), the date (1590) and notes on monarchs from Edward III; (2) portrait of Queen Elizabeth, copied from the frontispiece of Saxton&#39;s Atlas of 1579; plus (3) and (4), two cards with descriptive text only. Only one complete pack of these cards is known, held by the British Museum. It is hand-colored and mounted on card for playing. Prior to its accession in the 1930&#39;s, only an incomplete set of uncut sheets printed on paper was known; these are held by the Royal Geographical Society, and are usually designated proofs. Each sheet contains one suit in an arrangement of three rows of 5 cards each , thus providing the 13 cards of the suit plus the two introductory cards. Authorship is now attributed to William Bowes; the first suit, beneath the arms, bears the legend: W B invenit and the year 1590 in the opposite corner. This is a recent attribution and is still the subject of some conjecture as nothing further is known of him save a second pack of cards from the reign of James I which have on them "W. Bowes Inventor", with &#39;Gillam&#39; (i.e., William) on one of the jacks, by which it is inferred that the W.B. of this set is William Bowes. In 1932 the Royal Geographical Society issued a facsimile on paper of two of the sheets in its collection. As a result, extensive testing has been done on the cards in this set to confirm whether they are on paper or vellum. The test confirms that this set is indeed on thin vellum; however, a sliver of the border of West VIII was taken for the final test. That sliver, the control pieces and a summary of the testing have been retained. The set in the British Museum has hand coloring, this set is completely uncolored. Sometime (19th century?) nicely bound up as two miniature books, one for each suit, 1¾ by 2¾ inches, full leather, spines tooled in gilt and with red leather lettering labels: &#39;ATLAS&#39;. The boards are tooled in blind. The cards themselves measure about 1½ by 2½ inches. Some of the cards, at least, are adhered to vellum stubs for binding. Each suit has one additional blank vellum page inserted behind the title, no doubt to bring the number of leaves to 16 for purposes of sewing and folding. Each volume contains the bookplate of the former owner. Hinges of the first volume and the rear hinge of the second are neatly repaired else this is a fine set.

      Anversa, 1590 circa. Dal ?Theatrum Orbis Terrarum?, incisione in rame, colore d'epoca, cm 33 x 43 (alla lastra) più margini, testo francese al verso, in alto a sn. titolo entro cartiglio a volute geometriche. La carta deriva da quella pubblicata da Natale Bonifacio nel 1587 (in bs. sulla sn., in piccolo riquadro, ?Natalis Bonifacius.. describeb.?). Il "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum" è stato il primo atlante moderno, comprendente carte di tutte le zone del mondo. Prima di allora la produzione cartografica era stata irregolare, locale a livello di produzione, e i pochi atlanti, i cosiddetti "Atlanti Lafreriani" erano costituiti su richiesta, raccogliendo carte di alcune zone e ignorando le altre. La geniale intuizione di Ortelio fu appunto quella di riunire, in un unico corpus, la produzione cartografica del periodo, costituendo la base per un'impresa editoriale di enorme successo che sarebbe stata pubblicata dal 1570 al 1612. Un paio di piccoli forellini in basso sulla sinistra, stretti margini, discreto esemplare in bella coloritura.

      London: George Bishop, and Ralph Nevvberie, 1590. FIRST EDITION . Hardcover. The Britwell Court Copy, in Superb Condition, and Perhaps once Belonging to Queen Elizabeth I. 213 x 162 mm (8 3/8 x 6 3/8"). 8 p.l., 722 pp. FIRST EDITION. VERY IMPORTANT CONTEMPORARY FLEXIBLE VELLUM EMBLAZONED WITH THE ROYAL ARMS OF ENGLAND at the center of both covers within a double frame of gilt rules and decorative cornerpieces, flat spine with gilt bands and titling, wallet edges, ORIGINAL SILK TIES. Publisher&#39;s device on title page, historiated headpieces, tailpieces, and initials. Front pastedown with the bookplates of John Hely-Hutchinson and Cornelius J. Hauck, shelfmark indicating ownership of Christie-Miller at Britwell Court (see below). Britwell Handlist, p. 599 (this copy); STC 16619; Lowndes II, 1377. Vellum a little rumpled, slightly soiled, and with some of its gilt muted, very small loss of vellum at bottom of front wallet edge, diminished top margin in last nine gatherings (a small handful of headlines just touched), other trivial imperfections, but still AN EXCEPTIONALLY FINE CONTEMPORARY COPY, the special binding solid and lustrous, and the leaves extraordinarily clean and fresh. This is a very special (one might almost say sensational) copy of a rare 16th century secular work in English. The author aims to establish a correct chronology for all of history, which he commences with the creation of the world and Adam, explaining in his preface that the Bible is an infallible source of correct chronology, and the Gentiles, such as Greek historian Thucydides, were hopelessly at fault. Although the method would not commend itself to a modern scholar, this survey of the history of the Holy Land, Greece, Rome, Persia, early Medieval Spain and France, and Turkey is an interesting reflection of the knowledge of history which a bookish Elizabethan possessed. Lodowick (or Ludovic) Lloyd (d. ca. 1610) was a Welsh courtier who held the position of sergeant at arms under both Elizabeth I and James I. Lloyd dabbled in poetry and produced historical compilations, the most important of which is "The Pilgrimage of Princes" (1573). His friend John Lane alleged (although this has been questioned) that Lloyd paid for the funeral of Spencer, who died in poverty. A less pleasant allegation is that Lloyd falsified a royal grant to him to make it more favorable, a peccadillo which the queen is conjectured to have overlooked because of her fondness for Lloyd. While we cannot say with certainty that the present copy was ever in the queen&#39;s possession, it is obviously a point of great interest to note the close relationship between our author and Elizabeth and, at the same time, to ponder the presence of the royal arms on the covers of our book. Whatever the case in the Elizabethan period, the later provenance of this volume is certainly distinguished. De Ricci says that the Britwell Court library was simply the most outstanding collection of English books ever assembled. The voracious book collector William Henry Miller (1789-1848) was a bibliophile who, in de Ricci&#39;s words, "literally bought by the cartload." He was a major buyer at the Heber sales, which featured much early English literature. The books were kept at Miller&#39;s Britwell Court estate in Buckinghamshire, where they were added to substantially by successors Samuel Christy (d. 1889) and Wakefield Christy (d. 1898), both of whom took the name Christie-Miller. Their immense library was sold between 1916 and 1927 at Sotheby&#39;s, bringing in more than £500,000 (the present copy sold on 23 March 1926 for £19). The work is exceptionally rare: ABPC lists no other complete copy at auction since at least 1975. It is difficult to convey how well-preserved this copy is; perhaps it is sufficient to note the survival of the original silk ties--something one could never hope for--and to say that the leaves are fresher than one could imagine in a 16th century English book.

        CERTAIN DISCOURSES . . . CONCERNING THE FORMES AND EFFECTS, OF DIUERS SORTS OF WEAPONS, AND OTHER VERIE IMPORTANT MATTERS MILITARIE

      Printed by Richard Johnes, London 1590 - Praising the Longbow, Contemning the Musket as Overrated, Cowardly. 187 x 130 mm (7 3/8 x 5 1/8"). 18 p.l., 50 pp. FIRST EDITION. Recent polished calf, covers with blind rules, two brown morocco spine labels, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. In a very good fleece-lined slipcase. Publisher's device on title page, woodcut headpieces and initials. Cockle 46; STC 22883. Title leaf and final leaf with overall dust soiling and slight fraying at each edge, the four leaves following the title a bit soiled and with flattened creases at upper corner (several other upper and lower corners very slightly defective or also with flattened creases), one leaf with a short closed tear at bottom just reaching into text, but generally a surprisingly good copy internally (especially for a 16th century English book of this sort), with the vast majority of the text clean and fresh, and the retrospective binding essentially unworn. This work is a panegyric upon the English longbow and the rank and file English soldier who had wielded the weapon with devastating effect in such famous 14th century battles as Crécy and Poitiers. It is also a condemnation of many features--virtually all of them new--of the way British military affairs were being conducted during Smythe's time. Although for him there were certain firearms that had stood the test of time, the author has little respect for the newly developed musket, which he thinks is sadly overrated and the weapon of cowards. He also denounces English policy in the Netherlands as ineffectual and misguided, and he criticizes the callous treatment which English officers mete out to their subordinates. His remarks were so stinging that within a fortnight of publication, the government of Elizabeth I suppressed the work. Although the author may have been swimming against the tide in his contempt for newly developed firepower, the work has much valuable information about 16th century weapons, military organization, and tactics. It is perhaps most interesting today for its support of the virtues and rights of the common soldier, whom Smythe never tires of extolling, and for its frankness about the imperfections of the war machine of Elizabeth. John Smythe (1531-1607) had served as a soldier of fortune and diplomatic envoy to Spain and Calais. After the suppression of his book, he became something of a desperado, and remarks made by him at a drunken banquet led to his arrest and imprisonment on charges of inciting a revolt (he was later pardoned by the queen). Smythe was not a crackpot, nor simply someone whom time had passed by. The first cousin to Edward VI, he is called by Cockle "an accomplished soldier" who had studied military arts abroad under Maximilian II and other princes. The suppression of the book surely accounts in part for its considerable scarcity (ABPC lists five copies at auction during the past 30 years). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      per Filippo Giunti. 1590 - In Fiorenza (Florence), per Filippo Giunti, 1590. In 4 de 682-[11]pp., reliure en plein vélin souple postérieure de la fin du XVIIème siècle, titre manuscrit à l'encre noire en longueur effacé et petit reste d'étiquette contrecollé à la queue du dos, quelques annotations de l'époque à l'encre noire dans les marges, rousseurs éparses, quelques brunitures, mouillure à la marge latérale et dans le coin inférieur externe des derniers feuillets sans gravité, deux ex-libris contrecollés sur le premier contreplat au nom de J.

Benedetto Varchi naquit à Florence en 1503, ville qu'il fut contraint de fuir à cause de différents conflits avec les Médicis. Il se rendit d'abord à Padoue où il entra au service des Strozzi, puis à Bologne. En 1543, sur invitation de Cosme Ier il retourna dans sa ville natale. Suite à divers scandales liés à ses pratiques sexuelles et à l'accusation de viol sur un enfant, qui selon ses biographes était une tentative pour le ruiner, il fut arrété et condamné. Son oeuvre majeure est ''L'Ercolano" ou ''Hercolano", pour honorer Cesare Ercolani de Bologne, publiée posthume en 1570, considéré comme le plus important traité de linguistique de la seconde moitié du XVIème siècle, dans lequel l'auteur soutient que la langue florentine est la langue mère, fondatrice de la langue italienne.

Mercator (1512-1594) was an accomplished mathematician, cartographer, globe maker and engraver but is best known for the Mercator Projection. Incorporating the newly accepted fact that the world is round, Mercator was able to render longitude lines consistently straight on a chart. Although this requires some distortion, it was of great use for navigators, and is historically important, as it is still the most commonly used projection today.

Some showthrough of text from verso on left margin.Very good condition, but very small hole in top border. Size: 355 × 320 mm. (14 x 12½ inches). Beautiful view of the Spanish city of Santander. Showing the port and harbour, ships in the bay, mountains beyond and three women, a donkey and a baby in the foreground. Braun and Hogenberg&#39;s Civitates Orbis Terrarum was a monumental work completed over 45 years between 1572 and 1617, and was one of the best-selling works of the late sixteenth-century. It was the first systematic city atlas (containing the first printed views of many towns). Ortelius, who travelled with the artist Joris Hoefnagel supplied much of the material, which was then engraved by Novellus and Hogenburg. George Braun wrote the text. There were a number of editions, but it is extremely difficult (and as Koeman says &#39;of secondary importance&#39;) to differentiate between them, as the state of the plates, their number and order does not vary.

        Maris Pacifici, (quod vulgo Mar del Zur)

      Antwerp, 1590. No Binding. Very Good. Original and later color; some very slight restoration at margin, else excellent condition "One of the most important maps that appeared in the Ortelius atlases ..." (Burden). With its two splendid cartouches and a well-detailed illustration of Magellan's flagship, the Victoria, this is also one of the most beautifully engraved of Ortelius' maps. "Being one of Ortelius' most desirable maps combined with the fact that it was not issued in the atlas until 1590, it is not as available as the various versions of his map of America" (Burden). The map provided some of the best mapping of the West Coast of North America before the shroud of the California-as-an-island myth descended. Wagner says that the map's delineation of this area "constitutes a distinct departure; being unlike any other map . . . published before 1589." Thus, it has been surmised that this and other parts of the map were based on an unknown voyage. Burden 74; Koeman, I.C. Atlantes Neerlandici, III, p. 62; Wagner, H. Cartography of the Northwest Coast, p. 74, no. 156; van den Broecke 12.

        The Faerie Queene

      London: William Ponsonbie [William Ponsonby]. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. EXTREMELY SCARCE FIRST EDITION OF BOTH PARTS of The Faerie Queene, one of the foundational works of English Literature. "Spenser was considered in his day to be the greatest of English poets, who had glorified England and its language by his long allegorical poem The Faerie Queene, just as Virgil had glorified Rome and the Latin tongue by his epic poem the Aeneid. Spenser had a strong influence upon his immediate successors, and the sensuous features of his poetic style, as well as his nine-line stanza form, were later admired and imitated by such poets as Lord Byron and Percy Bysshe Shelley in the Romantic period of the late 18th and early 19th centuries. He is widely studied today as one of the chief begetters of the English literary Renaissance and as a master who embodied in poetic myth a view of the virtuous life in a Christian universe" (A. Kent Hieatt, Britannica). With woodcut device on each title and woodcut of St. George and the Dragon on M5v of volume I. With dedication to Queen Elizabeth printed on title verso. Part I has the following issue points: the imprint has the first digit of the date under r in for; page 309 is incorrectly numbered 319; the Welsh (and English) words in lines 4 and 5 of p. 332 are not printed; pages 486-87 are numbered correctly; quire Qq follows Pp8 (with errata on verso). The Faerie Qveene. Disposed into twelue books, fashioning XII. Morall vertues [contains Books 1-3]. London: [John Wolf] for William Ponsonbie, 1590 WITH: The Second Part of the Faerie Qveene. Containing the fourth, fifth, and sixth bookes. London: [Richard Field] for William Ponsonbie, 1596. Quarto (182x127 mm), nineteenth century brown morocco. Browning to title page of vol I. Last leaf on volume II with extreme outer corner tip (not affecting text) restored; occasional spots of soiling, text a little closely cropped with a few losses to headlines. A very handsome, clean, complete copy. Extremely scarce - we know of only a few copies of the first edition that have been on the market in the last 20 years.
