        "Floridae Americae Provinciae" from Brevis Narratio Eorum Quae in Florida Americae Provicia (Part II of Theodre De Bry's Great Voyages)

      Frankfurt, 1591. THE FIRST MAP OF FLORIDA Copper-plate engraving: 151/8" x 183/8 References: Lloyd Arnold Brown, The World Encompassed (Baltimore, 1952), n. 233; Philip D. Burden, The Mapping of North America: A List of Printed Maps 1511-1670 (Rickmansworth, 1996), 101-102; M.B. Pritchard & H.M. Taliaferro, Degrees of Latitude: Mapping Colonial America (Williamsburg, 2002), 63-5. This is a pivotal early map of the Southeast, and the most extensive coastal delineation of any part of the American continent for nearly a generation. The author, Jacques Le Moyne, accompanied the French explorer Laudonnière on his ill-fated 1564 voyage to found a Huguenot colony in Florida. Le Moyne's task was to make surveys as well as to record visually the native customs and topography, but his project was curtailed in 1565 when the Spanish destroyed the French settlement at Fort Caroline. Le Moyne was among the few fortunate survivors who escaped. In 1591, his map was published in Theodore de Bry's Great Voyages, as part of the second installment of what eventually became the grandest set of illustrated travel narratives in the history of American colonization. The De Bry firm, situated in Frankfurt, ultimately published twenty-seven wildly successful installments of the Great Voyages over the course of almost half a century (1590-1634). Le Moyne's account remains one of the most historically significant and desirable of the Great Voyages, and this map is the most important individual item included in that celebrated early series of travel narratives. The map includes the peninsula of Florida and the surrounding regions from the northern part of Cuba to Cape Lookout. Le Moyne worked from a variety of sources, including, some have speculated, Spanish manuscript maps as well as published reports and his own personal experience (but probably not his own field notes done on-site, which, regrettably, he almost certainly abandoned or lost when he was forced to flee Fort Caroline). Many geographic features of the map, both correct and erroneous, were incorporated in other maps for over 150 years. This enduring influence signals the status of Le Moyne's "Floridae" as one of the most significant early attempts at mapping any part of the American coastline.. Book.

        DER ANDER THEYL, DER LEWLICY ERFUNDENEN LANDTSCHAFFT AMERICAE

      Frankfurt: Theodor De Bry, 1591.. Engraved title, engraved section title, list of plates, folding engraved map, [6],42,[26]pp., plus forty-two plates after Le Moyne with letterpress titling above and text beneath, and two engraved illustrations. Without the initial and final blank leaves, as is usually the case. Folio. 20th- century three-quarter crushed red morocco and marbled boards, spine gilt. Second titlepage with a one- inch tear with slight loss, closed tear in bottom portion, and chipping in lower margin. Three small, closed marginal tears in the map. Several leaves with neat, expert marginal repairs. Plate 22 backed, repairing a horizontal tear. Overall, a very good copy. The first German-language edition of De Bry's FLORIDA, a seminal illustrated work for early North America, with Jacques Le Moyne's spectacular images of the region's American Indians. The publication of this work by De Bry, together with Hariot's VIRGINIA, launched what would later become known as De Bry's GRAND VOYAGES. The two works are without question the most important of the series both in terms of contemporary influence and modern historical and ethnographic value. The text here describes the earliest French settlements of what are now portions of the United States and are here united by De Bry with engravings based on watercolors accomplished by 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 American Indians from that region. In the mid-1560s, hoping to thwart the Spanish conquest of the Americas, two French expeditions led by Jean Ribault and René Goulaine de Laudonnière sought to establish a Huguenot settlement in Florida, a region also encompassing much of present- day South Carolina. Among those accompanying the latter was Jacques Le Moyne. Le Moyne de Morgues, born in Dieppe, France in about 1533, was appointed artist to the expedition led by Laudonnière, which sailed in April 1564. Arguably the first European artist to visit the New World, Le Moyne recorded the scenery of Florida and the lives of the Timucua Indians in great detail, as well as charting the coastline of Florida. The young French colony was seen as a threat by the Spanish, and in September 1565 a Spanish force led by Pedro Menendez massacred the French colonists at Fort Caroline. Le Moyne and several others made a miraculous escape. The story of their struggles, however, would not be published until 1588, when Richard Hakluyt instigated Laudonnière's journal to be published by a friend in Paris. Later that year master engraver and publisher Theodor De Bry traveled to London to meet with Le Moyne to obtain illustrations of the region to accompany a new edition of Laudonnière's journal. Le Moyne declined, but after he died suddenly the following year, De Bry returned to London and purchased the watercolors from Le Moyne's widow. It was on this trip to London that De Bry met Hakluyt, who informed him of the British expeditions to Virginia, shared with him both Hariot's journal and White's watercolors from the expedition, and suggested the publication of a series of illustrated voyages to America, beginning with Hariot/White and Laudonnière/Le Moyne. De Bry returned to Frankfurt and in 1590 published the former in Latin, German, French, and English; the following year he published the latter in Latin and German, presumably having found only a small market for the other languages.

        BREVIS NARRATIO EORUM QUAE IN FLORIDA AMERICAE PROVI[N]CIA GALLIS ACCIDERUNT...QUAE EST SECUNDA PARS AMERICAE

      Frankfurt: Theodor de Bry, 1591 [i.e. 1609].. Engraved title, 2pp. letterpress dedication leaf with integral engraved coat-of-arms, 2pp. preface with large engraved headpiece, 1p. privilege leaf (verso blank), [8],30, 1p. index (verso blank), letterpress title (dated 1609, verso blank), folding engraved map, 42 leaves (each with 1/2- page engraved illustration and text, printed on recto only), [23]pp. Folio. Bound in 18th-century German mottled calf gilt, covers with border of simple gilt roll-tool, surrounding a large centrally-placed gilt coroneted monogram "JGC" on upper cover, the lower cover with a gilt coat of arms surmounted by a coronet, spines in seven compartments with raised bands, dark green morocco labels in the second compartment, the others with repeat decoration in gilt, endpapers with a blocked red and blue geometric design. Very good. The second Latin edition of a seminal illustrated work for early North America, with Jacques Le Moyne's spectacular images of the region's Native Americans and a very important map of Florida. With the publication of this work, together with Hariot's Virginia, De Bry launched what would later become known as his GRAND VOYAGES. These first two works are without question the most important of the series both in terms of their contemporary influence and their historical and ethnographic value to modern scholars and collectors. The text of the BREVIS NARRATIO... describes the earliest French settlements of what are now portions of the United States and are here united by De Bry with engravings based on watercolors by a member of the expedition to the New World. To most of the Old World, this work presented the first accurate eyewitness depiction and account of Native Americans. In the mid- 1560s two French expeditions led by Jean Ribault and René Goulaine de Laudonnière sought to establish a Hugenot settlement in Florida. Among those accompanying Laudonnière was Jacques Le Moyne de Morgues: born in Dieppe, France in about 1533, he was appointed artist to the expedition which sailed in April 1564. Arguably the first western artist to visit the New World, Le Moyne recorded the scenery of Florida and the lives of the Timucua Indians in great detail, as well as charting the coastline of Florida and much of present-day South Carolina. Unfortunately, the nascent French colony was seen as a threat by the Spanish, the dominant European power in the region, and in September 1565 a force led by Pedro Menendez massacred the French colonists at Fort Caroline. Le Moyne and several others, however, made a miraculous escape. The story of their struggles was not published until 1588, when, at the instigation of Richard Hakluyt, Laudonnière's journal was published in Paris. Later that year, master engraver and publisher Theodor De Bry traveled to London, and met with Le Moyne in an unsuccessful attempt to obtain illustrations of the region to accompany a new edition of Laudonnière's journal. Following Le Moyne's death the following year, De Bry returned to London and purchased the watercolours from his widow. It was on this trip to London that De Bry met Hakluyt, who informed him of the British expeditions to Virginia, shared with him both Hariot's journal and White's watercolors from the expedition and suggested the publication of a series of illustrated voyages to America, beginning with Hariot/White and Laudonnière/Le Moyne. De Bry returned to Frankfurt and in 1590 published the former in Latin, German, French and English; the following year he published the latter in Latin and German, presumably having found that there was only a small market for the other languages. Le Moyne's extraordinary illustrations of the Florida Indians, which appear on forty-two leaves of this work in their first published form, rank with those of John White as the best visual record of American Indians before the 19th century. They show all aspects of Indian life, including settlements, ceremonies, wars, agriculture, hunting, and preparation of food. They also show scenes of the French settlement and their involvement with the Indians. These images were widely copied for centuries, and many later supposedly original illustrations of American Indians are actually copies of Le Moyne's illustrations. A full list of the plates appears in Church. The map, which appeared for the first time with this text, is one of the most elaborate of the Florida peninsula to appear in the 16th century, giving the names assigned by the French and Spanish. Cumming provides an elaborate description, and John Matthew Baxter describes it as "the most remarkable and important map, which has been preserved from the sixteenth century maps, of that part of the East Coast which lies between Cape Hatteras and Cape Florida. [It is] the first French map to show Florida [and is] considered the most important map of Florida." SABIN 8784. CHURCH 145. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 609/64. SERVIES 112. CUMMING & DE VORSEY 14.

        [THE GREAT AMERICAN VOYAGES]. Vols. 1-9 (ALL THAT WAS INTENDED TO BE ISSUED, 9th part thus called the last ("postrema pars") - later 3/4 more volumes appeared) + variant duplicate volumes of IV and VIII, in all 11 volumes, bound in 9. Mixed editions/issues, mixed German and Latin text.

      Frankfurt/Oppenheim, 1591-1625. Folio. Bound in 9 uniform magnificent late 19th century full green morocco bindings with gilt centrepieces, gilt lines to edges of boards and gilt line-frames to inside of boards. All edges gilt. All volumes signed W.Pratt. Some faults and repairs, but excellently restored throughout, in the most gentle and delicate manner. Gentle washing, pressing, and a few restorations; some maps neatly mounted, 2 maps supplied in facsimile (being the map in both copies of vol. VIII, which is not always there and thus technically not lacking), and a few leaves supposedly supplied from other copies. Occasional slight cropping. All in all a very handsome and well preserved set - SEE BELOW FOR COLLATION AND DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF CONDITION.With the book plate of John Jay Paul (dated 1913 and 1914) to each volume, and each volume with a tipped-in manuscript note describing issue points and/or the main restoration work (one dated 1919).. A lovely set, exquisitly and uniformly bound, magnificently restored in the most gentle and respectful of manners, of the entire original run of De Bry's "Great American Voyages", supplied by extra variant copies of volumes IV and VIII. Theodor de Bry himself published the first six parts (in German and Latin simultaneously), and after his death, his widow and his two sons issued the three following parts. "It appears that they intended to stop there" (Sabin, vol. 3, p. 20). However, 17 years later, Johann Theodor decided to publish another three volumes (1619-1624). These are not present here. The present set is a mix of the German and Latin volumes (which appeared simultaneously), and as always in a mix of editions and issues. Due to the great scarcity as well as the complex bibliographical nature of "The Great American Voyages", no sets of this great work are said to be alike. They are always made up of different languages, editions, and issues, and there is said to be no such thing as a "complete set". Copies of sets are almost always in very poor condition.

These errors are to be found in all published copies. See Einaudi 737).. Scarce first edition of one of the earliest - and most important - works on coinage, dealing with weight and measure, as well as the value and devaluation of money. Apart from the seminal original contribution of Budel, this extensive work contains 29 contributions by earlier philosophers and theologians on the subject, - a compilation of almost every earlier treatise on the subject - which, in a true Renaissance spirit, makes it the very first compilation in economic history. ''De Monetis et re numaria remained the standard work on the subject for almost two centuries. (Nussbaum, A Note on the Idea of World Money). During the Renaissance, international banking saw a rise, which eventually resulted in a demand for one uniform European coinage. Budelius' thesis can be read as an ideological response to this demand, as he argued for precisely that: a unified market with one universal coinage. In this sense, his work anticipates by several hundred years many of the economic thoughts presented by the Classical economists during the second half of 18th century. Budelius discusses the metallic view and the abuse of adulteration and falsification, and then attempts an exposition of how money may be coined in the most practical way. He then goes on to deal with the problem of how a debtor will meet his obligations if the coinage has been debased since the time the debt was contacted or the loan received. He maintaind that the same bullion value must be repaid although the coin may be depreciated - a view that was generally accepted at the time.The third part of the work consists of a compilation of almost every earlier treatise on the subject. In nearly all of them, the central problem is the same as the one discussed in the second book of Budelius' work. (Mariana ,The political economy of Juan de Mariana).The general thesis of Budelius' work is that the trading partners should seek to use only one currency and that the law of coinage and money's natural state (an early reference to how money behave in the market) should be unified. In the period of the Cologne War, Germany had several different currencies and laws in relation to coinage and minting of coins. This not only restrained the domestic trade in Germany, it also lead to armed conflict which again resulted in a more fragmented economy. Budelius's work can be read as an attempt to unify Germany (and the rest of Europe) under one currency, which also would serve the purpose of stabilizing the highly volatile curriencies during this period: The widely cited Rene Budel (1591) held it to be indubitable that a Prince in the midst of costly wars, and therefore in great necessity, can order that money be made out of leather, bark, salt, or any material he wants, if he is careful to repair the loss inflicted thereby on the community with good and better money. (Cambridge Companion to Economic Thought). In the sense of unifying Europe under one currency, Budelius seperates himself from not only Medieval monetary thinkers, but from his contemporary mercantilists as well: The medieval literature on money is characterized by nascent nationalism, with the imagery of the body applied to the kingdom, and of money as the blood moving through its parts. Nicole Oresme's De Moneta pointed out that if money is accumulated in the king's treasury and withdrawn from circulation, it constitutes an abscess in the body. (Cambridge Companion to Economic Thought). His comments represent the synthesis of two traditions, one uncovering the theoretical possibility of fiat money, the other uncovering its practical usefulness, as means of raising revenues in emergencies, from examples taken from history. Budelius cites examples of copper petty coinage in Germany and the Low countries, and gives examples of siege money. From Maastricht in 1579 (copper), Vienna in 1529 (lead), tin in Neuss, and even paper siege money in Leyden in 1574. He then writes: I hold this to be indubitable, as I recall a little earlier, that a Prince in the midst of costly wars, and therefore in great necessity, can order that money be made out of leather, bark, salt, or any material he wants, if he is careful to repair the loss inflicted thereby on the community with good and better money. The insights of Budel about token money were to be tested by some experiments in the coming years and were carried further by important theorists in the Renaissance and later. Budelius (1530-91), was a practitioner, a jurist by training, who worked as diplomat for the archbishop of Cologne, and later as mint-master in Westphalia for the duke of Bavaria. This is reflected in his practical and empirical approach to the economic challenges the Renaissance society was subjected to, unlike the more often seen theoretical and moral approach.

Zu Wittenberg gehalten. 36 Blätter; Wittenberg, M. Simon Grönenberg 1593; Zwei seltene und kulturgeschichtlich wichtige Drucke des 16. Jahrhundert. Das "Christliche Bedencken" Leysers, ein Lutheraner, beinhaltet ein Festhalten an der Traditon des Exorzismus bei der Taufe, gleichwohl eine gemilderte Form angestrebt wird, und dem "Bepstischen Zeuber Exorcismum" abgeschworen wird. Eine völlige Abschaffung wird in diesem Frühstadium der evangelischen Kirche aber noch nicht toleriert. Bei den "Zwo Christlichen Predigten" ist vorallem die zweite interessant, die aktuell auf die 1593 wieder aufbrechenden Türkenkriege Bezug nimmt und das Inferno einer Türkenherrschaft in Europa anprangert. Nicht zuletzt durch solche Predigten gelang es den Mitteleuropäischen Staaten, sich gegen die Türken zu solidarisieren und ihnen den Einbruch nach Europa zu verwehren.

        De tranquillitate animi, libri vii [and other works]. Edited by Simon Goulart; translated by Théodore Gautier

      [Geneva]:: Jacob Stoer,, 1591. [Geneva]: Jacob Stoer, 1591 8vo 8vo (173 x 110 mm). [24], 761, [15] pp. Roman and italic types, shoulder notes, woodcut printer’s device on title (Silvestre 1002), woodcut head- and tail-pieces and initials. Contemporary blind roll-tooled pigskin, edges stained green (some minor rubbing). Provenance: Jesuits of Amberg (Bavaria), 18th-century inscription on title, later paper shelfmark label at foot of spine; a few 18th-century marginal notes and occasional underlinings in red ink in the last treatise.***& & First Latin edition of four works of erudite spirituality by a significant but neglected advocate of French Calvinism in the period preceding the Edict of Nantes. An Augustinian monk from Anjou, de l’Espine corresponded wtih Calvin and eventually abandoned the cowl to embrace Protestantism. His pastoral works of spiritual edification and consolation, combining the traditional tropes and forms of Catholic pastoral literature with Calvinist convictions, met with great success and were widely translated, reaching readers in England, the Low Countries, and Germany: 89 sixteenth-century editions of his 19 works are recorded in the Universal Short Title Catalogue [USTC]. De l’Espine’s role in the French Reformist controversies and his effectiveness as a proponent of a reasoned Reformist doctrine during this period of religious strife were recently examined by B. Roussel, for whom his writings belong to a group of major literary sources for modern understanding of the “interior life” of French Calvinists, supplanting the paucity of historical sources such as records of sermons or synodal and consistory documents (Roussel pp. 139 and 151). & & The present translations by Théodore Gautier appear to be the first published Latin translations of any of de l’Espine’s works. First published under the title Excellens discours touchant le repos et contentement de l'esprit ([Geneva], 1587), De tranquillitate animi is de l’Espine’s longest work. Tacitly directed at the Huguenot faithful, traumatized by decades of civil war, the work consists of a series of written sermons counseling control of one’s emotions, organized by vice to be vanquished: ambition, anger, envy, sensuality (volupté), jealousy, curiosity, and fear. Each point is supported by similes and exempla drawn from Classical and Christian historians and moralists, and punctuated by citations from the Psalms (though “de l’Espine carefully avoids the Lives of the Saints or citations of recent Catholic theologians” [op. cit., p. 155]). The French text was reprinted a dozen times before 1600, in various Protestant cities from La Rochelle to Basel. Simon Goulart, humanist theologian, edited the collection; his dedicatory epistle to the Huguenot captain François de la Noue appeared in the original 1587 edition. The present edition contains an additional preface by the translator, dedicated to Jean Colotius & Théodore Colladon.& & Following the main work, which ends on p. 492, and is fully indexed, are three shorter, unindexed treatises by the same author: De Iustitia Christiana, translated from the Excellent traité de la justice chrestienne, ([S.l.], 1577); De Confessione peccatorum (caption title De peccatorum agnitione et confessione apud deum), first published as the Traité excellent et vrayement chrestien de la reconoissance et confession des pechez à Dieu ([Geneva], 1587), describing in openly Calvinist terms “numerous pragmatic prescriptions amounting to a method of personal confession to God” (Roussel, p. 143); and Pro aegrotis consolandis (caption title Consolatio et Instructio ad aegrotos), a translation of de l’Espine’s Traicté pour consoler les malades (La Rochelle, 1588), which advises the dying how to combat “fear: of sins, death, devils, the malediction of the law, and divine anger and retribution.” & & Stoer reprinted Gautier’s Latin version in 1594, or re-issued the same sheets, according to GLN 15-16 (online database of books printed before 1600 in Geneva, Lausanne & Neuchatel). Further editions, expanded with an additional treatise, appeared in 1600. OCLC lists no copies of this edition in the US, but GLN 15-16 records two copies, at the University of N. Carolina and Chicago State Univ. & & Adams L-550: Moeckli 131; Haag VII, 37 ff.; L.

        Evangelium Sanctum Domini nostri Iesu Christi conscriptum a quatuor Evangelistis sanctis, id est Matthaeo, Marco, Luca et Iohanne).

      Roma, Typographia Medicea, 1591.. In-folio (mm. 324x215); pagg. 9-462, (2, ultima bianca); con 149 vignette silografiche su disegno da Antonio Tempesta che illustrano scene dei vangeli; testo in arabo e latino sovrapposti entro cornice tipografica. Piena pergamena settecentesca con titolo su tassello in oro al dorso.. Seconda edizione del primo evangelario in arabo (stampato nel 1590 senza traduzione latina) e prima con traduzione interlineare in latino composta da Leonardo Sionita, curata da Giovambattista Raimondi (1536-1614), grande orientalista cui era stata affidata la Tipografia Medicea dal duca Ferdinando de' Medici. La tipografia, fondata nel 1584, era specializzata nella pubblicazione di opere in lingue orientali, in particolar modo in arabo; dopo la morte del Raimondi la tipografia fu trasferita a Firenze. L'opera inizia a pag. 9 senza frontespizio e presentazione. Le vignette furono probabilmente incise in legno probabilmente da Leonardo Parasole su disegno di Antonio Tempesta, artista fiorentino celebre per gli affreschi eseguiti in Vaticano e in molti palazzi nobiliari romani. Il testo arabo fu invece ideato da Robert Granjon, giunto a Roma su committenza del pontefice Gregorio XIII per l'incisione dei caratteri di alcuni alfabeti orientali. Il testo arabo e basato sulla Vulgata alessandrina, databile a fine XIII secolo. Le prime 8 carte con il titolo furono aggiunte solo nel 1619Darlow & Moule 1637: "The early printed editions of Arabic Gospels are all forms of the Alexandrian Vulgate; his name is given to a revision made towards the end of the thirteenth century, wich, however, is little more than the text of Vatican copt. 9 (a diglot codex written in 1202, containing on Arabic version of the Bohairic New Testament), filled out by inserting from the Syriac or the Greek those numerous passages where the ancient Coptic version did not contain words found in the Syrian Vulgate and in the Greek text of the Middle Ages"; Graesse II, 531: "Les evangiles sont divises par sections a la maniere de l'eglise orientale, mais non pas en chapitres ni en versets. Il existe trois sortes d'exemplaires qui sont toutes en realite de la date de 1591 " ; A. Lumini, La Bibbia, edizioni del XVI secolo. Firenze, Olschki, 200, pp. 252-253.Buon esemplare, molto marginoso, con leggere bruniture e tracce di umidita ad alcuni fascicoli; restauro marginale e piccoli fori di tarlo alla prima carta; 2 carte contenenti le pp. 179-182 sono state rilegate capovolte. - Darlow/Moule 1637.

        Phytognomonica. Octo libris contenta; in quibus nova, facillimaque affertur methodus, qua plantarum, animalium, metallorum; rerum denique omnium ex prima extimae faciei inspectione quiuis abditas vires affequatur.

      1591. Francofurti, apud Ioannem Wechelum & Petrum Fischerum consortes, 1591. Royal-8vo (207 x 134 mm) pp. (16), 552, with woodcut portrait of Porta on verso of title, printer's device on title and 32 woodcuts in the text. Contemporary limp vellum. Second edition of this work on signatures in plants which was originally published in Naples in 1588. "It is sometimes held that della Porta was the real originator of the botanical Doctrine of Signatures in any approximation to a scientific form. The theory was that Divine Providence had formed plants in such a way as to indicate the ailments they would cure (e.g. a walnut looked like the human brain, so would cure head ailments). Protagonists of this theory quarrelled violently with those who believed in astrological medicine ..." (Hunt). The elaborate woodcut title shows a.o. a lynx, emblem of the Accademia Lincei, of which Porta was a member. Galileo and Colonna were fellow associates in that society. "The book has a genuine scientific merit as well, for it groups plants ecologically by locale and distribution" (Anderson p. 198). The woodcuts are of a very high quality and rare praised as such by Arber. "The illustrations of the 'Phytognomonica' are helpful in interpreting Porta's view. The part of man's body which is healed by a particular herb, or the animal whose bites or stings can be cured by it, are represented in the same woodcut as the herb. For example, the back view of a human head with a thick crop of hair is introduced into the block with the maidenhair - a capacity for curing baldness being suggested by the hair-like delicacy of the leaf-stalks of the fern... A scorpion completes a picture of plants with articulated seed vessels; a shoot of heliotrope is also included, since, to Porta's vivid imagination its curved flower spike recalled a scorpion's tail" (Arber, Herbals pp. 251-2). Some slight browning. Johnston 134; Nissen BBI, 463..
