        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. B. Bury et Michael Bury, petit début de date manuscrit à l'encre noire dans l'angle supérieur externe de la première page de garde, signature d'appartenance ''Fletcher'' à l'encre noire au dessus du titre sur la page de titre, cette dernière ornée d'une belle gravure représentant la marque de l'éditeur; un lys encadré de petits anges qui soutiennent des boiseries sculptées et des draps qui pendent, de visages et surmonté d'une couronne, registre, lieu et nom de l'éditeur au colophon, lettrines historiées, une gravure en bandeau en haut d'une page, culs-de-lampe, bon et bel exemplaire. 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.

      Duisberg: Gerard Mercator. unbound. very good. Map. Uncolored engraving. Image measures 13.75" x 18", page measures 17.25" x 21". Exquisite map of Scotland circa 1590, with Latin text on the back. 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. Full original margins, minor foxing.

        Santander

      Civitates Orbis Terrarum. Cologne., c.1590, French edition.. Copper engraving. Uncoloured. 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'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 'of secondary importance') 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.

        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.

        Historia natural, y moral de las Indias, en que se tratan las cosas notables del cielo, y elementos, metales, plantas, y animales dellas: y los ritos, y ceremonias, leyes, y govierno, y guerras de los Indios

      First edition of ?the most convincing, detailed, and reliable account of the riches and new things of America?. 1590. Seville. Juan de Leon. In 4to. 1 ff. + 535 + 18 ff. eighteenth-century English speckled calf, spine gilt; extremities rubbed, joints slightly cracked at foot, head and foot of spine a little chipped. Some light foxing, title and last leaf backed at time of binding, small loss at fore-edge of title, two short repaired tears and light damp stain in fore-edge of second leaf, else a very good copy, in original condition.First edition in Spanish, and a large portion published for the first time in any language. A ?remarkable book. It was both a more thoughtful and a more thorough account of the Indian world than anything then available. Its novelty, of which Acosta was justly proud, is apparent even from the title. The idea of a ?moral history?, a history, that is, of mores ? of customs ? was an unusual one in the sixteenth century. No one, as Acosta was at pains to point out, had ever attempted to write a true ?history? of the Indians, though there had been accounts of the origin and growth of the Spanish colonies which included a (usually cursory) glance at the indigenes... Of all the vast literature on the Indies during this period Acosta?s Historia was perhaps the only work which contemporaries recognised as having broken new ground? (Pagden, The fall of natural man: the American Indian and the origins of comparative ethnology, pp. 149?57). Hill ?referring to the 1604 English edition- says it?s ?the most convincing, detailed, and reliable account of the riches and new things of America?. The author, a Spanish missionary in Peru and Mexico in the 16th century, was obliged by his duties to ?personally investigate a very extensive range of territory, providing him with a practical knowledge of the province, and its aboriginal inhabitants? (Hogwego).The work constitutes a cornerstone of Spanish knowledge on America; it arguably contains the best information of the customs of the Aborigines. ?His work opened the eyes of the rest of Europe to the great wealth that Spain was drawing from America. Eventually Spain grew more secretive in these matters? (Hill). Acosta, a Jesuit priest, spent seventeen years in American missions in Mexico and Peru between 1569 and 1588. While in Peru he was instrumental in founding the printing press there and was also the first to formulate a systemic theory of anthropology, suggesting a classification of different peoples into different types.Alden 590/1.

The first work: [xiv[, 236, [3, verses] pp, and the final blank, lower margin of second leaf cut away with 2 letters of catchword on verso just touched, one or two small brown marks, small repairs to inner margin of title, but a good crisp and clean copy; the second work: 186, [4] pp., including the imprint leaf and the final bank, some slight browning but a good copy; the third work: [xvi\, 93, [1, imprint with large woodcut ornament] pp. plus the final blank, a few blemishes but very good. The first two works in this sammelband are first editions, and the third is the first edition in Latin of the Spanish work El concego, 1559.The second work is concerned with Roman and Canon law. Of the first work, Printing and the Mind of Man writes: "A Counterblast against Tyrants was probably printed at Basle, outside the jurisdiction of popes, emperors and kings, but it was prudently given a bogus imprint. It is an eloquent vindication of the people's rights to resist tyranny, while affirming that resistance must be based on properly constituted authority. It is in fact the practical demonstration of Bodin's theory, and some measure of its impact and continuing relevance may be estimated from a study of the places and dates at which it has been translated or reprinted ? London, 1648, Paris, 1789, Berlin, 1848, Like Rights of Man, it is one of the perennial documents of anti-tyranny."

        A Voyage to East India Wherein Some Things are Taken Notice of In Our Passage Thither But Many More in our Abode There Within that Rich and Most Spacious Empire of the Great Mogul

      Edward Terry (1590-1660) was an English chaplain and travel writer. In 1615 he sailed to India as a chaplain with the London East India Company. The title page of this 1777 volume states "Reprinted from the Edition of 1655 with Copper-Plates."  The binding is rebacked, preserving the original calf boards.  The rebacking appears to be both expert and vintage, as the spine shows some age as well.  The boards show wear, particularly at the corners, but remain respectably intact.  The contents are impressively clean and bright.  The frontispiece, folding map and three plates are all present as called for. There is a previous owner's bookplate on the ffep.  The only sign of light spotting detected is confined to the blank verso of the frontispiece. "The author accompanied Sir Thomas Roe as his chaplain during the latter's embassy to India 1615-1619; his journal is a valuable complementary account".

        [Hariot's Virginia] Admiranda narratio fida tamen, de commodis et incolarum ritibus Virginiae ... Anglico scripta sermone, a Thoma Hariot

      Frankfurt: Typis Johannis Wecheli, Sumtibus vero Johannis-Theodori de Bry, '1590' [but circa 1608]. Folio. (13 1/4 x 9 inches). Collation: a4, b6, c4, d6, *2, A6, B-C8, D6, E8, F5. Title page to text with two pasted on paper panels bearing the title and publishing details in Latin, all within an engraved surround (as issued), letterpress title to plates, engraved arms on dedication leaf, blank D6. 1 double-page engraved map of Virginia [Burden 76, state 2], 1 engraved plate of Adam and Eve (first state with inscription "Iodocus a Winghe in / / Theodore de Bry fe", 27 engraved plates after John White (including 5 plates of Picts), with blank D6 but without the final blank F6 (as in Church), various small neat expert repairs, three leaves misbound. Expertly bound to style in 18th-century blue/green morocco, covers with gilt roll tool border, the flat spine divided into six compartments with gilt roll tools and fillets, lettered in the second compartment, the others tooled with alternating neo- classical tools, 18th-century marbled endpapers. A beautiful copy of the second edition, second issue of this foundation work on the early exploration and delineation of America which combines a critically important text with a series of spectacular images, all relating to the first British colony to be established on the sub-continent. This volume was the first issued by the publisher, Theodor De Bry, in his extraordinary series, "Grand Voyages," which set out to describe the exploration of the New World. This copy includes a variant title: Church does not mention an issue of the title with letterpress slips pasted in position, but the engraved surround corresponds most closely to Church's third issue. This work recounts the history of the abortive Roanoke colony established by the British in North Carolina in 1585. Thomas Hariot's text, describing the country of Virginia and North Carolina, was first published in London in 1588 (only six copies are known) and here republished in Latin. Hariot, like the artist, John White, was part of the Roanoke expedition and wrote his account from actual observation. It is the first description of the Virginia and Carolina country. The map which accompanies the volume is the first really good map of the Virginia coast and Carolina capes, showing the coast from the mouth of the Chesapeake to Wilmington, North Carolina. John White's illustrations are among the most famous of early American images. White was the lieutenant- governor of the colony, and a skilled artist. His carefully executed watercolors, gleaned from close observation and remarkably accurate renderings of the Carolina Indians and their customs, costumes, rituals, hunting practices and dwellings, are here expertly engraved by De Bry. No other artist so-carefully rendered American Indians until Karl Bodmer worked on the Missouri in the 1830s. Besides these illustrations, there are plates showing White's conception of the ancient Picts of Scotland, to whom he wished to compare the American natives. Cf. Arents 37; cf.

        [Hariot's Virginia.] Admiranda narratio fida tamen, de commodis et incolarum ritibus Virginiae, ... Anglico scripta sermone a Thoma Hariot

      Frankfurt: Theodor De Bry, 1590. Folio. (13 1/2 x 9 3/4 inches). Engraved title to text, letterpress title to plates, engraved arms on dedication leaf, colophon leaf F6, blank D6. 1 double-page engraved map of Virginia [Burden 76, state 2], 1 engraved plate of Adam and Eve (first state with inscription "Iodocus a Winghe in / Theodore de Bry fe" and with traces or early hand-colouring), 27 engraved plates after John White. Expertly bound to style in early limp vellum. Housed in a black morocco backed box. A fine copy of the De Bry first edition in Latin of Hariot's Virginia: the first eyewitness pictorial record of the American southeast and the first illustrated account wholly dedicated to any portion of what is now the United States. The publication of this work by De Bry launched what would later become known as his Grand Voyages. It is without question the most important of the series both in terms of contemporary influence and modern historical and ethnographic value. The text describes the first British colony to be established in the New World and is here united by De Bry with engravings based on watercolours by John White, a member of the expedition. This work offered the first accurate accounts and eyewitness depictions of native Americans. In 1584, Sir Walter Raleigh received a ten-year charter to establish the first permanent English settlement in Virginia and over the course of the next five years four expeditions landed at Roanoke for that purpose. The second of those expeditions included mathematician and navigator Thomas Hariot and artist and later colonial governor John White. Upon his return to London, Hariot would privately publish in 1588 A Brief and True Account of the New Found Land of Virginia (extant in only 6 known copies) which detailed the explorations and discoveries during the 1585 expedition. The following year Hakluyt would include the text in his seminal Principall Navigations. In 1589, master engraver and publisher Theodor De Bry traveled to London where he met Hakluyt, who told him of the British expeditions to Virginia and shared with him both Hariot's journal and White's watercolours from the expedition. Hakluyt suggested the publication of a series of illustrated voyages to America, beginning with Hariot/White. De Bry returned to Frankfurt and in 1590 published the work in Latin and German. John White's illustrations are among the most famous of early American images. White was the lieutenant-governor of the abortive colony, and a skilled artist. His carefully executed watercolours are remarkably accurate renderings of the Carolina Indians and their customs, costumes, rituals, hunting practices and dwellings. No other artist so carefully rendered American Indians until Karl Bodmer worked on the Missouri in the 1830s. The engravings after White are the best pictorial record of American Indians before the 19th century, while the important map within the work is the first detailed depiction of the Virginia coast and Carolina capes, showing the coast from the mouth of the Chesapeake to Wilmington, North Carolina.

        [Hariot's Virginia] Wunderbarliche, doch Warhafftige Erklärung, von der Gelegenheit und Sitten der Wilden in Virginia ... Erstlich in Engelländischer Sprach beschrieben durch Thomam Hariot

      Frankfurt: Johann Wechel for Theodor de Bry and Sigismund Feirabend, 1590. Folio. (13 1/8 x 9 inches). Title page to text with two pasted on paper panels bearing the title and publishing details in German, all within an engraved surround (as issued), letterpress title to plates, engraved arms on dedication leaf, blank D6, colophon leaf F5, blank D6. 1 double-page engraved map of Virginia [Burden 76, state 2], 1 engraved plate of Adam and Eve (first state with inscription "Iodocus a Winghe in / / Theodore de Bry fe", 27 engraved plates after John White (including 5 plates of Picts), all finely hand-coloured by a contemporary hand. Expertly bound to style in 18th-century French red morocco, covers with triple gilt fillet border, spine in seven compartments with raised bands, the bands highlighted with gilt hatching, lettered in the second compartment, the others with repeat decoration of small tools around a central flower-spray tool, marbled endpapers, red stained edges. A fine contemporary hand- coloured copy of the De Bry first edition in German of Hariot's Virginia: the first eyewitness pictorial record of the American southeast and the first illustrated account wholly dedicated to any portion of what is now the United States. Copies with contemporary hand-colouring are of the utmost rarity and were no doubt intended for the highest echelons of society, either as commissions or gifts. The publication of this work by De Bry launched what would later become known as his Grand Voyages. It is without question the most important of the series both in terms of contemporary influence and modern historical and ethnographic value. The text describes the first British colony to be established in the New World and is here united by De Bry with engravings based on watercolours accomplished by John White, a member of the expedition to the New World. To most of Great Britain and Europe, this work presented the first accurate accounts and eyewitness depictions of Native Americans. In 1584, Sir Walter Raleigh received a ten year charter to establish the first permanent English settlement in Virginia and over the course of the next five years four expeditions landed at Roanoke for that purpose. The second of those expeditions included mathematician and navigator Thomas Hariot and artist and later colonial governor John White. Upon his return to London, Hariot would privately publish in 1588 A Brief and True Account of the New Found Land of Virginia (extant in but 6 known copies) which detailed the explorations and discoveries during the 1585 expedition. The following year Hakluyt would include the text in his seminal Principall Navigations. In 1589, master engraver and publisher Theodor De Bry traveled to London where he met Hakluyt, who informed him of the British expeditions to Virginia and shared with him both Hariot's journal and White's watercolours from the expedition. Hakluyt suggested the publication of a series of illustrated voyages to America, beginning with Hariot/White. De Bry returned to Frankfurt and in 1590 published the work in Latin, German, French and English. John White's illustrations are among the most famous of early American images. White was the lieutenant- governor of the abortive colony, and a skilled artist. His carefully executed watercolors, gleaned from close observation are remarkably accurate renderings of the Carolina Indians and their customs, costumes, rituals, hunting practices and dwellings. No other artist so carefully rendered American Indians until Karl Bodmer worked on the Missouri in the 1830s. The engravings after White are the best pictorial record of American Indians before the 19th century, while the important map within the work is the first detailed depiction of the Virginia coast and Carolina capes, showing the coast from the mouth of the Chesapeake to Wilmington, North Carolina. Sabin writes that according to the Russian prince Serge Sobolewski, the noted collector of De Bry whose voluminous collection was purchased by James Lenox and is now at the New York Public Library, the German editions were "made with more care and better typographical arrangement." In addition, the German-language editions of Hariot are considerably more scarce than the Latin. The contemporary hand colouring of this copy is extraordinary and of the utmost rarity. Hariot's Virginia is a monument to early Americana and the first, and perhaps the greatest, of all illustrated works depicting Native Americans in the United States. Cf. Arents 37; Church 176; cf.

A HANDSOME SET OF DE BRY'S GREAT VOYAGES uniformly and finely bound in modern burgundy morocco gilt. Inspired by a meeting with the celebrated Richard Hakluyt in London in 1587, de Bry published the first of his own collection of voyages relating to the Americas in 1590: Hariot's account of Virginia. In order to maximize profit he had editions published in English, Latin, French and German. He went on to publish five further parts before his death in 1598, when his sons Johann Theodor and Johann Israel took over the task of completing the Great Voyages and began the Small Voyages, and oeuvre which eventually stretched to 25 volumes. Forty-four years passed between the publication of the first part of the Great Voyages and the last part of the Small Voyages, and it is therefore no wonder that sets like this one are made of a variety of editions and issues: "during this long interval, the publishers of this great collection must have reprinted, even more than once, the greater part of the volumes, which had become successively out of print; but, before coming to entire reimpressions, they would naturally use the portions either of text or of plates which were on hand. It appears, in fact, that the plates were at first printed only for a part of the two texts of the first volumes, and that, when this first impression was exhausted, it became necessary to have a second, and at the same time, to print on the pages destined to receive the engravings both the numbers indicating their order, and the titles or explanations, which appear above and below those engravings, and that, finally, when the text was entirely exhausted, they reprinted it, at first with the old date, and afterwards with a new date. This explains how it is that one encounters, besides the editions reprinted as a whole, copies of the first edition offspring so many various readings that one might think they belonged to different editions."

        A Voyage to East India Wherein Some Things are Taken Notice of In Our Passage Thither But Many More in our Abode There Within that Rich and Most Spacious Empire of the Great Mogul

      Edward Terry (1590-1660) was an English chaplain and travel writer. In 1615 he sailed to India as a chaplain with the London East India Company. The title page of this 1777 volume states "Reprinted from the Edition of 1655 with Copper-Plates."  The binding is rebacked, preserving the original calf boards.  The rebacking appears to be both expert and vintage, as the spine shows some age as well.  The boards show wear, particularly at the corners, but remain respectably intact.  The contents are impressively clean and bright.  The frontispiece, folding map and three plates are all present as called for. There is a previous owner's bookplate on the ffep.  The only sign of light spotting detected is confined to the blank verso of the frontispiece. "The author accompanied Sir Thomas Roe as his chaplain during the latter's embassy to India 1615-1619; his journal is a valuable complementary account".

        Indiae Orientalis, insularumque adiacentium typus.

      Incisione in rame, coloritura d'epoca, mm 355x500 tratta da "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum", opera che ebbe un successo immediato e numerosissime riedizioni. Il "Theatrum" è considerato il primo atlante moderno, comprendente carte di tutte le zone del mondo; la geniale intuizione di Abraham Ortel (1528-1598), che latinizzò il proprio nome in Ortelius, fu quella di riunire in un unico corpus la produzione cartografica eterogenea del periodo, costituendo la base per un'impresa editoriale di enorme successo, pubblicata dal 1570 al 1612. Oltre all'India ed all'arcipelago indonesiano citati nel titolo, la carta rappresenta anche le regioni dell'estremo oriente, compresi Cina e Giappone. Bel cartiglio decorato in basso a sinistra e stemma nobiliare nell'angolo superiore dello stesso lato. Testo latino al verso.Buone condizioni, con restauri ad alcuni piccoli strappi marginali e ad uno strappo longitudinale professionalmente restaurato.
