By Which Apology (in Their Seuerall Due Places) all the Reasons and Allegations Set Downe as Well in a Treatise, as in Certaine Notes (That Goe From Hand to Hand) both Against proceeding Ex Officio, and Against Oaths Ministered to Parties Criminall; Are also Examined and Answered:.Respectiuelie Submitted to the Graue Iudgements of the Reuerend Iudges and Other Sages of the Common Lawe: and of the Right Reuerend Prelates and other Grounded Diuines in this Realme. Whereunto. I Have Presumed to Adjoine that Right Excellent and Sound Determination (Concerning Oaths) which was Made by M.

Cosin was a distinguished authority on ecclesiastical law and a staunch Anglican who opposed the Puritan cause. His Apologie was written in support of the oath ex officio, which compelled the examinee to swear to truthfully answer whatever he was asked. This was a highly controversial practice. Several Puritans, and quite a few Anglicans as well, believed it was uncomfortably similar to methods used by the Papal Inquisition. A Puritan lawyer, James Morice, took t. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Daems & Vandewiele, p. 58 (1 copy); Klaversma & Hannema 1176; STCN (same copy as Daems, lacking frontispiece); WorldCat (3 copies). Rare third edition of a Dutch translation of the Amsterdam Pharmacopoeia. Unlike the original Latin edition the Dutch translation not only lists ingredients, but also provides recipes to prepare the medicines.

Several cities in the southern Low Countries and Germany, and even London, had produced pharmacopoeias before any Dutch city and Tulp based his on those published in Augsburg, Cologne and London, primarily on the 1622 edition of the Pharmacopoea Augustana (providing about 85% of the content), with some material from the 1627 Dispensatorium Coloniense and the 1627 edition of the Pharmacopoea Londinensis.With the engraving and first three pages damaged and strengthened; a large water stain in the lower margin of the first 14 pages and small holes in several pages (no loss of text).

         Pomeraniae utriusq Continentis . [on sheet with] Thietmarsorum Simbricae Schersonesi Populorum .

      1593 - Antwerp, Cornelis de Jode, 1593. Latin text edition. Two plates on one sheet, 160 x 450mm & 145 x 225mm. Repairs to left and right margins, otherwise a very fine example. Maps of Pomerania after Munster and Diethmarchen after Peter Boekel. First published 1578 in Gerard de Jode's 'Speculum Orbis Terrae', the maps were originally on one plate, with a map of Prussia bottom right. For the second edition, published by Gerard's death by his widow and son Cornelis, the plate was cut and the Prussia replaced by a full-page plate. This edition was to be the last: after the death of Cornelis in 1600 the plates were bought by Vrients, then the owner of the Ortelius plates, merely to suppress them. KOEMAN: Jod 2.

         Hemispheriu Ab Aequinoctiali Linea, Ad Circulu Poli Arctici / Hemispherii Ab Aequinoctiali Linea, Ad Circulu Poli Atarctici

      , 1593. 1593. Map. Original engraving. 16 x 20.5 inches. Archival silver frame 25.25 x 29 inches. Map. Original engraving. 16 x 20.5 inches. Archival silver frame 25.25 x 29 inches.This important map renders the two hemispheres on north and south polar projection, with an elaborate and magical surround of clouds and wind-heads. The North Pole shows a rock (the Rupes Nigra) that according to legend, stood in the center of an Open Polar Sea. The legend is derived from Inventio Fortunata, a lost 14th c manuscript that described the North Pole as a magnetic island surrounded by a giant whirlpool and four continents. The continents are separated by rivers through which warm water from the surrounding oceans flowed. As yet undiscovered, Antarctica is imagined and often present on 16th century maps as a giant continent thought to balance out the northern hemisphere. The present edition is one of two new world maps which appeared in the 1593 edition of the Speculum Orbis Terrarrum. This example being a rare variant with blank verso. Right margin trimmed to the neat line. This important map graces the cover of Rodney Shirley's seminal book The Mapping of the World Early Printed World Maps. Cornelius de Jode (1568-1600) came from a family of map makers, engravers, publishers, he was a scholar and a map maker from Antwerp. Iconic map of the upmost rarity.

Bod-Inc B475; Haebler, Rollen- und Plattenstempels, p. 251, XVII. Second edition, expanded, of Gottfried's very popular chronicle of world history, extensively and beautifully illustrated by Matthäus Merian (1593-1650), one of the greatest engraver-illustrators of the 17th-century and father of the insect illustrator Maria Sibylla Merian. The 357 portraits cover men and women from classical mythology, via Greek, Roman and mediaeval history, to monarchs, religious leaders and scholars of Gottfried's own time. The book is especially valued, however, for Merian's illustrations, which begin with the creation and continue with scenes from biblical, mediaeval and modern history, including many battle scenes, executions and martyrdoms, some in Ottoman lands. Some of the illustrations include detailed city views in the background. Both the spine and the front board have been relettered, possibly when the panel stamps were coloured. Occasional slight browning, the left end of the world map folded in and slightly tattered, 1 tear running 1 cm into 1 illustration, a small rust hole in 1 index page and 1 illustration, and an occasional minor marginal stain or tear, but otherwise in very good condition. The binding is somewhat worn, mostly around the spine and extremities, some tears at the hinges and small abrasions mostly affecting untooled fields, but otherwise good and with the tooling clear. A popular chronicle of world history, especially valued for the hundreds of beautiful illustrations by Matthäus Merian, the present copy beautifully bound for the Hohenzollern rulers of Brandenburg-Prussia.

         Verona

      Artist: Schedel Hartman ca ; issued in: Nuremberg; date: ca1593 - - technic: Woodcut; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 36 x 22,50; - description: Small view of Verona on one sheet. On the verso a depiction of two philosopher; - vita of the artist: Hartmann Schedel (1440 -1515)settled in Nuremberg 1484. He published the famous Nuremberg Chronicle 1493, Schedel's library has been sold in 1552 to Hans Jacob Fugger. Schedel's Nuremberg Chronicle must have been one of the most popular of incunables, judging by the number of surviving copies. Some 800 copies of the Latin edition have been traced and 400 of the German. This is not surprising considering that this compilation of sacred and profaned history was the most elaborate printed book of its time, illustrated with more than 1800 woodcuts. Among these were a number of double-page city views, a folding map of the world and another of northern and central Europe. The text is an amalgam of legend, fancy and tradition interspersed with the occasional scientific fact or authentic piece of modern learning. Hartmann Schedel, a physician of Nuremberg, was the editor-in-chief; the printer was Anton Koberger, and among the designers the most famous were Michael Wolgemut and Hanns Pleydenwurff, masters of the Nuremberg workshop where Albrecht Durer served his apprenticeship. The first edition of the Nuremberg Chronicle in July 1493 was in Latin and there was a reprint with German text in December of the same year. World Map:His Ptolemaic world map with the figures simbolizing the three sons of Noah's: Sem, Ham and Jafet. The world map was included in the Chronicle of the Nuremberg physician, Hartmann Schedel to demonstrate the world after the Deluge. The hundreds of the woodcuts used for printing the illustrations of the famous German work were cut by Wolgemut and Pleydenwurff. The young Albrecht Dürer could contributed to the book as he apprenticed the Nuremberg printers.The panel to the left side, showing the monstrous races, is an illustration of the tales, fables and antique works, first of all Pliny the elder. Note that this panel is the best identification mark of our edition, there was another panel with the map of the 1493 edition.

         Myles Standish

      , n.d. n.d.. Ornate Manuscript Document Signed "Thomas Standishe," one page, 14" x 11", on vellum, Lancashire, no date. Dampstains obscure some text, usual folds. The document is a sixty-year lease granted by Standish to James Anescough and Alice, his wife. A fascinating document worthy of further research. Thomas Standish (1593 - 1642) English politician and staunch Parliamentarian during the English Civl War, sat for Preston during the Short Parliament of 1640 and in the Long Parliament until 1642. Standish, who lived at Duxbury Manor in Lancashire, was very possibly a relative of Myles Standish, one of the founders of Plymouth Colony in 1620. Much is known and has been written concerning the life of Myles Standish (c. 1584 - 1656) after he became associated with the English Separatists (i.e. Pilgrims) who founded the colony of Plymouth in 1620. However, very little is known about Standish's early life including his place of birth, and for nearly two centuries, this question has been been the subject of scholarly debate. The little we know about Standish's origins come from his will, drafted in 1656, in which he granted to his "son & heire apparent Alexander Standish all my lands as heire apparent by lawfull decent in Ormskirke Borscouge Wrightington Maudsley Newburrow Crowston and in the Isle of man and given to mee as Right heire by lawfull decent but Surruptuously detained from mee My great Grandfather being a 2cond or younger brother from the house of Standish of Standish."(Charles H. Simmons, Jr., Plymouth Colony Records, Volume 1, Wills and Inventories 1633-1669 ,Camden, ME: Picton Press, 1996, 312-314) Of all the places named, one is on the Isle of Man while the remaining are places in Lancashire where a branch of the Standish family resided, centered at Duxbury Hall. A short passage written by Plymouth Colony's secretary, Nathaniel Morton notes a similar origin for Standish, noting he "...was a gentleman, born in Lancashire, and was heir apparent unto a great estate of lands and livings, surreptitiously detained from him; his great grandfather being a second or younger brother from the house of Standish…" (Nathaniel Morton, New England's Memorial, Boston: Congregational Board of Publication, 1855, 6th ed., 170). Unfortunately, that is all that is known about his origins. However, the fact that Standish founded the town of Duxbury in Plymouth Colony would suggest that his origins were indeed from Lancashire and not the Isle of Man. It is not known whether Alexander Standish (1626 - 1702) ever pursued these claims.

         Brasilia et Peruvia. Ad Strenuu et Magnificu Dnm. D. Theodoricu Echter.

      1593 - Antwerp 1593 copper engraved map; overall 42 x 55 cm; plate 36 x 41,5 cm. fold as issued; paper evenly toned with some some faint discolouration; some faint off-set; additional printer’s creases; small marginal spit top c’fold; o/w exc. cond. One of the most decorative and early map of the South America! The map shows part of Central America and all of South America, with Tierra del Fuego being part of a large land mass that merges into Australia. The map is embellished with various sea creatures as well as sailing ships and native vessels. Within the map, various indigenous animals and people are depicted, some in conflict with conquering foreigners: there are two scenes, where the intruders are not fairing particularly well! The title is above the map with scroll work to either side. Nice strong impression, with watermark; on verso Latin text. Cornelius De Jode was the son of Gerard de Jode (1509-1591), a Dutch engraver, printer, printseller, publisher and cartographer. In 1578, he published an atlas ‘Speculum Orbis Terrarum’ which was re-published by his son, Cornelius, in 1593. Cornelius’ map of South America deviates from his father’s map in as much as the title is no longer within the map as well as omitting two insets of smaller maps; some of the decorative elements have been omitted as well. Maps both by father and son are very hard to come by as Speculum did not prove to be such a success as Ortelius’ atlases and the publication was very small. [ref: 3253]

      Antwerpen, de Jode, 1593 - Koeman II, 211. 49. - Als Vorlage für die Karten von de Jode dienten überwiegend italienische Arbeiten aus den Lafrieri-Atlanten. Die vorliegende basiert aber auf den Arbeiten des Wolfgang Lazius. Alle Karten von de Jode sind von versierten Brüdern van Doetecum in Kupfer gestochen, die ein neues für Karten besonders geeignetes Ätzverfahren entwickelt hatten. Mit ihren Rollwerk- und Beschlagkartuschen, dem reichen figuralen Schmuck entsprechen die Karten ganz dem Zeitgeschmack. Trotzdem war dem Atlas kein besonders großer Erfolg beschieden und die Karten sind heute relativ selten zu finden.

         The profitable arte of gardening: to which is added much necessarie matter, and a number of secrets, with the phisicke helps belonging to each hearbe, and that easily prepared.

      London: Edward Allde, 1593. 4to (19.2 cm, 7.55"). [8], 164 pp. (lacking pp. 57/58, 65–68, 83/84, & final 92 pp. appendix); illus. Early, uncommon edition of the => first general treatise on gardening in English: an Elizabethan florilegium of growing advice and medicinal lore, compiled by an author who also published under the amusing semi–nom de plume "Didymus Mountain." For this popular work, Hill selected and "Englished" quotations and information from classic texts including those of Pliny, Cato, Theophrastus, Aristotle, Dioscorides, Galen, among others; it was originally published ca. 1558 under the title A Briefe Treatyse of Gardening.    The text, much of which is printed in black letter, is illustrated with three attractive in-text woodcuts of mazes and an enclosed garden (the latter first used on the title-page of the first edition, but appearing here in the text instead), as well as with a full-page diagram of "a proper knot for a Garden, where is spare rome enough, the which may be set either with Time or Isope, at the discretion of the Gardener." The appendices mentioned on the title-page (on beekeeping, husbandry, and tree grafting, under a separate title-page and with separate pagination) are not present in this copy.    Provenance: From the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel ("AHA") at rear.         ESTC S104120; Henrey, I, 200; Hunt Botanical Cat., 167; Luborsky & Ingram, Guide to English Illustrated Books, 13495; Graesse, III, 279.

Lacking pages 57/58, 65–68, and 83/84 as well as the final appendix as described above. Two leaves with unobtrusive, neatly done repairs and one with slightly more noticeable repair, not obscuring sense; one leaf with small hole and short tear in upper outer corner, not touching text. Center of volume with small area of worming at lower inner portions, generally in between lines but occasionally touching a few letters. Pages age-toned, some with mild to moderate waterstaining in most outer margins, with last portion more generally and darkly stained; scattered spots of mild staining and foxing elsewhere. => Imperfect, and so priced, but still scarce and desirable.

         In Sphaeram Joannis de Sacro Bosco. Commentarius. Nunc quarto ab ipso auctore recognitus, & plerisque in locis locupletatus.

      Lugduni, Sumptibus fratrum de Gabiano, 1593. - Petit in-4 de (4) ff., 551 pp., (22)ff. d'index, (1)f. de privilège. Nombreuses figures gravées sur bois. Belles marges (210 x 150 mm). Titre sali, légères mouillures à l'extrémité des marges de certains feuillets et un pâle mouillure fin d'ouvrage sans gravité. Vélin de l'époque. Belle édition commentée de la Sphère de Jean de Sacrobosco par le mathématicien et astronome jésuite Clavius (1537-1612). Jean de Sacrobosco, professeur de la Sorbonne au XIIIe siècle, connu aussi sous les noms de Jean de Halifax et John of Holywood, y fait une synthèse de Ptolémée et des mathématiciens arabes du IX eme siècle, Al-Battani et Al-Farghani. Dans son traité de la Sphère, il expose aussi les fondements de l'astronomie pré copernicienne, sans parti pris apparent. Le commentaire de Clavius, paru pour la première fois en 1570, est une présentation fidèle de l'astronomie ancienne et moderne. Celui-ci enseigna longtemps au collège des jésuites à Rome et fut à l'origine du calendrier grégorien (1582). Si Clavius qualifie Copernic "d'éminent restaurateur de l'astronomie dans notre siècle que la postérité fêtera et admirera toujours avec reconnaissance comme un second Ptolémée" son attitude à l'égard des theses de ce dernier reste prudente (citation de E. Knobloch sur l'oeuvre de Clavius). Surnommé « l'Euclide de son siècle » il fut également l'ami de Galilée et bien que resté attaché tout au long de sa vie au système de Ptolémée il valida finalement ses observations astronomiques en 1610. Bel exemplaire dans son vélin du temps.
