        Bussetsu Jizo bosatsu hosshin Innen Juokyo [trans.: The Buddha's Discourse on the Ten Kings of Karma and the Awakening of Ksitgarbha Bodhisattva].

      Four double-page & 15 single-page illus. 30 folding leaves. 8vo, orig. patterned blue wrappers (rubbed), printed title label on upper cover, modern stitching. N.p.: 1594 [but most probably 18th century]. "The Ten Kings was actually written in China more than ten centuries after the Buddha's death and is not part of the traditional canon. This never diminished its popularity, however. There were many versions. This one, with its fifteen judges, is clearly based on the Chinese materials but may have been written in Japan (in Chinese, but with grammatical aids for Japanese readers) between the tenth and thirteenth centuries."-Keyes, Ehon. The Artist and the Book in Japan (NYPL), 5. This book, first published with woodcuts in 1594, went through many printings well into the 19th century. Our edition most closely corresponds to the Indiana University copy (number 5.2 in the bibliographical section of Keyes's book) which is dated "18th century or later." We believe it is an 18th-century printing based on the appearance of the original wrappers. Fine copy. ❧ Brown, Block Printing & Book Illustration in Japan, p. 22-"The book was written by the Chinese priest Zosen, and, according to the colophon in the Japanese edition, was published in China in the year 1582. Afterwards drawings were made from the Chinese originals by the Japanese priest Tokusen, and the work was republished in Bunroku 3, or 1594." .

        A plaine discoverie of the whole revelation of Saint Iohn: set down in two treatises: the one searching and proving the true interpretation thereof. The other applying the same paraphrastically and historicallie to the text.

      [Edinburgh]: [Pr. by Robert Waldegrave for] John Norton Small 4to in 8s (19.2 cm, 7.55"). [7 (of 8)] ff., 269, [11] pp.; lacks initial blank.. 1594 Though sometimes accused of being a warlock, based on his eccentric habits and pursuits, the Scottish mathematician, physicist, inventor, and theologian known as "Marvellous Merchiston" was a fervently committed Protestant — and here he painstakingly interprets Revelation as a dire, detailed warning against evils of the Roman Catholic Church. The work is dedicated to James VI, and the title-page verso bears an elaborately marshalled variation on the Scottish coat of arms, using unicorn and dragon supporters and the "In my defens God me defend" motto. This is the second edition, "newlie imprinted and corrected," following the first of the previous year; though widely read and disseminated at the time, both first and second editions are now uncommon. There are two states of the title-page: In this copy "Newlie imprinted and corrected" appears as last line of title, before the imprint information. Provenance: Title-page with early inked ownership inscription in upper margin reading "Liber Guilielmi Kedden"; inked calculation of the age of the book dated 1702 (in Kedden's hand?). Motto in 18th-century hand on title-page: "Disce mori mundo vivere disce Deo." In the 20th century in the Charles Holbrook Library of the Pacific School of Religion (properly released, with bookplate laid in). Binding: Period-style mottled calf, spine with gilt-stamped title and author labels and blind-ruled raised bands; preserving original wastepaper endpapers of its previously totally deteriorated binding, which are reused leaves from a 16th-century blackletter work by Jacobus Perez de Valencia (at the front) and a large portion of a 1692 royal proclamation "for a General Fast" (ESTC R38082, Wing W2574) at the back. Binding as above; lacks the initial blank leaf (only). Front fly-leaf with early inked annotation in upper margin describing publication; title-page and one other rubber-stamped as above; title-page also with inkings as above. Pages faintly age-toned with edges slightly ragged. Two leaves torn across; one leaf with closed tear, without loss. Retained elements of earlier binding as above. => An intriguing copy of this important post–Scottish Reformation exegesis.

        Naufragio e lastimoso sucesso da perdiçam de Manoel de Sousa de Sepulveda, & Dona Lianor de Sá sua mulher, e filhos, Vindo da India para este Reyno na Náo chamada o Galião grande S. João, que se perdeo no cabo de Boa-Esperança, na terra do Natal ….

      (Lisbon), Na Oficina de Simão Lopez, 1594.. First Edition. 4°, modern (early twentieth-century?) green quarter morocco over pebbled paper boards (corners worn; some other minor binding wear), smooth spine with fillets in gilt and blind, short author-title and date in gilt, pink endleaves. Title-page in red and black. Woodcut initials. Small repair to license leaf, affecting a few letters of privilege on verso; minor paper flaw touching 1 letter of catchword. Final 18 leaves with outer margins slightly shorter, possibly supplied from another copy. Some light browning. Overall in good condition. Early monogram (?) in ink in lower blank margin of title page, scored. (4), 206 ll. *** FIRST EDITION of one of the most important epic poems in the Portuguese language: after the @Lusiadas of Camões, it is generally acknowledged to be the greatest epic poem in Portuguese. Contemporaries of the two poets were far from unanimous in ranking Camões above Corte Real. The poem's subject is one of the most celebrated events in Portuguese history, the shipwreck of the @São João off the coast of Natal in 1552, which was followed by a trek through the wilderness of southeast Africa. The @Naufragio was and continues to be by far the most popular of several peculiarly Portuguese contemporary accounts of maritime disasters, later collected under the title @Historia tragico-maritima. This tragic, romantic drama is simply told, yet omits none of the more tawdry aspects of the journey. It is also of crucial importance as a source for the ethno-history of the tribes of southeastern Africa, giving a wealth of information concerning the Bantu and the Hottentots prior to their extensive contacts with Europeans. Corte Real was perhaps born in the Azores in 1533, and died sometime before May 12, 1590. He was not only a poet but a painter, and possibly also a musician; he may have accompanied D. Sebastião to Alcacer Kebir and been captured there. The @Naufragio and his other major work, @Sucesso do segundo cerco de Diu, 1574, were written after he retired to an estate near Évora. *** Anselmo 803: locating five copies of the work in Portugal (Arquivo Nacional, Oporto, Ajuda, Mafra and the Escola de Bellas Artes de Lisboa).

        Variarum lectionum libri XV ... accesserunt hac editione hymni sacri, & varia eiusdem auctoris poëmata.

      Lugduni [i.e., Lyon]: Apud haered. Gulielmi Rovillii 16mo (12.1 cm, 4.76"). 621, [67] pp., final leaf blank; 62, [26] pp., final leaf blank.. 1594 First edition of Muret's classical commentaries to include the Hymni. The Variae, first published complete in 15 books in 1580, include excerpts from and explanations of both Greek and Latin texts, especially Cicero. A separate title-page introduces the Hymni (verses recited on specific holy days), followed by poems about illustrious contemporaries of Muret's — e.g., Raphael — and an index to the previous 15 books. The French humanist Muret (1526–85) has long been recognized as the best Latin prose stylist of the Renaissance, and his works were used as a model for students. Greatly admired for his excellent understanding and interpretation of classical texts, he was dubbed "le meilleur orateur du temps" in Italy and France by Montaigne, whom he tutored; and Scaliger mused that Muret "satirised the Ciceronians and at the same time expressed himself in a thoroughly Ciceronian style." LIke most of Muret's published work, these Variae are based on his academic lectures; however the scholar Lambinus accused Muret of plagiarism, and indeed it seems Muret "borrowed" bits from his work without permission. (In retaliation, Lambinus published their personal correspondence.) Muret's personal life was fraught with tribulation stemming from multiple accusations of homosexuality in various cities where he resided. From 1559 till his death, however, he lived in Rome under the protection of at least one cardinal and a pope. The text is in Latin and Greek, printed in roman and italic, with decorative headpieces and floriated initials. A letterpress diagram on p. 547 shows the Greek alphabet corresponding to numerals. Provenance: John Saltar (19th-century adolescent's signature, front pastedown); Henry Johns Gibbons, Rittenhouse (Philadelphia), 1923 (signature, front fly-leaf verso). Contemporary vellum with evidence of four ties and trace of oval stamp to front cover center, ink title to spine and bottom edge; soiled, with worm to spine/ pastedowns, hinges (inside) cracked, textblock starting to loosen. Paper age-toned and foxed, with small holes from natural flaws on two leaves (and two others partially uncut); Hymni dampstained in lower inner portions (not horribly). A few early ink annotations present.

        Opera chirurgica

      Frankfurt: Joannes Feyrabend, 1594. Paré, Ambroise (1510? ?" 1590). Opera chirurgica . . . Folio. [12], 851, [27]pp. 317 woodcuts in the text, including portrait of Paré aged 68 on the verso of leaf (:)4. Title in red and black. Frankfurt: Apud Joannem Feyrabend, impensis Petri Fischeri, 1594. 334 x 214 mm. Old calf, rebacked, new cloth ties, light wear at corners; preserved in a drop-back box. Very good, clean copy. Early ownership signature (illegible), dated 1600, on title. Bookplate and ownership stamps of Juan Carlos Ahumada (1890-1976), professor of gynecology at the University of Buenos Aires. Third Latin edition. Paré?s collected works, first published in French in 1575, represent the greatest and most influential book in Renaissance surgery, and the first original surgical writing in Europe since the Middle Ages. Paré?s innovations in treatment are extraordinarily comprehensive, ranging from his opposition to boiling oil in gunshot wounds and ligature instead of cautery in amputations to his revival of podalic version in obstetrics. He popularized the truss in hernia, and ushered in the modern age of prostheses and brace making, using armorers, whose trade was disappearing with the advent of gunpowder, to manufacture his devices. ?Paré used rope and windlass traction for femoral fractures and was able to distinguish hip dislocation from fracture of the femoral neck. He confirmed the cord compression in vertebral fractures that had been recognized by the Egyptians and Hippocrates . . . Paré used appliances and methods rather like those of Hippocrates for reducing hip and shoulder dislocations, and one or two special to himself. He describes displacement of the ?appendices? (i.e. epiphyses) of the long bones, to be restored if deformity is to be avoided, and reduced neck dislocations by manipulation and traction . . . ? (Le Vay, History of Orthopedics, pp. 224-25; also 222-230). Paré anticipated Andry in pointing out the role of bad posture in scoliosis, was the first to use corsets to correct spinal deformities, and invented boots for clubfoot. His surgical and orthopedic devices are amply illustrated in the present edition of his work, which contains over 300 fine woodcut illustrations. This copy was once owned by Argentinian gynecologist Juan Carlos Ahumada, after whom Ahumada-del Castillo syndrome is named. Doe 48.

The illustrations are comprised as follows: Part IV with 24 coloured plates plus two half-page coloured plates in the text (one showing Columbus's landing), plus a coloured folding map of the Caribbean; Part V with 22 coloured plates plus a half-page coloured portrait of Columbus, plus a folding coloured map of Mexico. The three parts that make up De Bry's rendition of Benzoni (the first two of which are present here) record the events surrounding Columbus's discovery, relations with Native Americans, atrocities committed by Indians and Europeans, Pizarro's exploits in Peru, etc. Chauveton's anti-Spanish slant provided De Bry with the gory details of Spanish barbarity which are brought to life in the meticulous engravings that illustrate this volume. De Bry's sensationally illustrated edition of Benzoni has stood as a solid landmark of illustrated Americana. Such scenes as Columbus' meeting with Ferdinand and Isabella, or the Spanish atrocities toward the Peruvian Indians, though not based on first hand experience, have survived the centuries largely for their compelling visual rendition of events. The first part includes a detailed and handsome folding map of the West Indies, "Occidentalis Americae partis...Anno MDXCIIII," which depicts the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico from northern Florida to the South American coast. The second part contains a folding map of Mexico, "Hispanae Novae sive Magnae, recens et vera descriptio." Theodor De Bry " was born in 1528 and died in 1598, after having published Parts I to VI of the Great Voyages. He was a skillful engraver, and many of the plates in these parts were from his own burin ... After the death of Theodor De Bry the series was continued by his widow and two sons, Johann Theodor and Johann Israel De Bry, who in 1599 issued Parts VII and VIII, and in 1602, Part IX. With this part it is presumed the publishers intended to close the series, as it bears the title: Nona & Postrema Pars" (Church). This part was first published in both Latin and German between 1590 and 1595. At the time this work was published, hand-colouring was an expensive luxury applied only to works that were intended for the highest echelons of society, either as commissions or as gifts. The colouring in the present example is the work of a professional, and the work would clearly have originally resided in one of the great libraries of Europe.

        L'Authoritie et Iurisdiction [Jurisdiction] des Courts de la Maiestie.

      1594. First Edition of Crompton's Survey of the Courts [Crompton, Richard (d. 1599)]. L'Authoritie et Iurisdiction des Courts de la Maiestie de la Roygne: Nouelment Collect & Compose, Per R. Crompton del Milieu Temple Esquire, Apprentice del Ley. Si Seuris Index, Mitisis Corde Memento, Dicito, quae Possunt Dicta Decere Senem. London: In Aedibus Caroli Yetsweirti, 1594. [iv], 232 ff. Quarto (7-1/4" x 5-1/4"). Later three-quarter calf over marbled boards, raised bands and lettering piece to spine. Light rubbing to extremities, a few minor nicks to boards, hinges cracked. Woodcut head-pieces and decorated initials. Moderate toning to text, somewhat heavier in places, some leaves have faint dampspotting or edgewear. Small early owner initials and struck-through signatures to title page, one with burn-though, early annotations and underlining to a few leaves, interior otherwise clean. An appealing copy. * First edition. Crompton was a bencher of the Middle Temple during the reign of Henry VIII and the author of several notable juristic works. L'Authoritie et Iurisdiction is considered to be his principal work. It is essentially a digest of the Year Books and other cases applicable to the subject. Turning to William Fulbecke's A Direction or Preparative to the Study of the Lawe (1600), we see that its value was recognized almost immediately: "Master Crompton has taken great paynes in this study, and his books are in every man's hands, which prooveth their generall allowance, his cases are very profitable, and apt for the title to which they are applyed, and so compendiously collected, that a man may by them in a few howers gaine great knowledge" (cited in Holdsworth). On a broader scale, Crompton offers legal justification for the creation of a rigidly hierarchical "natural" society governed by a powerful monarch. This attitude, articulated by Bodin among others, was shared by several conservatives in England and Europe during the Late Renaissance. Holdsworth, History of English Law IV: 212.

Edition originale de second tirage aussi rare que le premier. « C'est l'édition d'Anvers, 1593-1594, avec un I de plus à la fin du millésime du titre. Beaucoup de figures portent des retouches que les exemplaires de 1593-1594 n'ont pas » (Van der Haeghen). Traité du supplice de la croix chez les peuples de l'Antiquité que le philologue et humaniste brabançon Juste Lipse (1547-1606) composa pour témoigner de sa conversion catholique. L'auteur, dans ses notes, fait mention de quelques personnes avec qui il a été en rapport pour la composition de son ouvrage, notamment Delrio, Van Raphelengen père, Jean Boisot, Denis de Villers et Pierre Oranus. « Le troisième livre de Juste Lipse rassemble les manières extraordinaires d'employer le supplice de la croix. Il y explique ce que c'était que la fourche dont on se servait pour punir les esclaves ; comment on les élevait en croix avec cette fourche dont on se servait pour punir les esclaves ; comment on les élevait en croix avec cette fourche, et des différentes sortes de fourches. Il traite ensuite des différentes manières de crucifier, la tête en bas de travers, les pieds écartés ; de ceux qui étant attachés à la croix, étaient brûlés tous vifs ou exposés aux bêtes farouches. Enfin on attachait le corps des suppliciés à des croix ou à des gibets. Lipse examine ensuite de quel bois étaient faites les croix ; celui de chêne étant le plus fort, était le plus propre pour leur construction. Le lieu ordinaire où on les plantait était élevé, et les croix étaient hautes. Juste Lipse finit ce livre par la description des honneurs que Constantin rendit à la Croix, en faisant mettre ce signe sur ses drapeaux, sur les armes de ses soldats, sur les ornements impériaux : et conclut cet ouvrage par un éloge de la Croix par S. Jean Damascène. » (Nouvelle Bibliothèque des auteurs ecclésiastiques). Vignette de titre et 22 gravures sur cuivre in-texte dont 1 à pleine-page par Pierre Van der Borcht ; marque de Plantin in fine.

        Occidentalis Americae Partis, vel, Earum Regionum quas Christophorus Columbus Primu Detexit Tabula Chorographicae Multorum Auctorum Scriptis, Praesertim Vero ex Hieronymi Benzoni . Theodoro de Bry Leod. Anno M D XCIIII

      Frankfurt, Theodor de Bry,, 1594 - Burden 'The Mapping of North America' #83; The Map Collector, Issue 9 (Garratt); Potter 'Antique Maps', p.164. - Spektakuläre Karte des 16. Jahrhunderts von Florida und der Karibik Theodor de Bry's faszinierende Karte der Karibik basiert auf den Aufzeichnungen von Girolamo Benzoni, welcher zwischen 1541 und 1556 diese Gegend bereiste. Sie ist eine der ältesten Karten, die den Norden Südamerikas im Detail darstellt und eine der wenigen Karibik Karten dieser Periode. Florida wurde von de Bry aus der le Moyne Karte von 1591 übernommen. Die Karte stammt aus dem vierten Band von de Bry's Großen Reisen. Die Inseln der Karibik sind überproportional groß dargestellt, und die Bahamas mit den Inseln Bahama und Lucaya sind zu weit im Norden platziert. Die Legenden der Karte bezeichnen die vier Reisen des Christoph Kolumbus, auch eine der frühesten Erwähnungen des Golfstroms ist vorhanden. 'Eine der spektakulärsten Karten aus der Zeit der Entdecker ist die Karte Occidentalis Americae partis. Die sehr selten Karte ist wunderschön gestaltet und gestochen.' (Potter: Antique Maps, S. 164). - Untere, dekorative Randeinfassung wie gewöhnlich aufgrund der Buchgröße angeschnitten und mit altem Papier verbreitert. Etwas braunfleckig rechts neben der oberen Mittelfalte, im rechten Rand und den unteren Ecken. Druckerfalte rechts neben der unteren Mittelfalte. Insgesamt guter und scharfer Abdruck dieser eindrucksvollen Karte. - Spectacular 16th century map of the West Indies and Florida. Theodore de Bry's fascinating map of the West Indies is based on the Milanese sailor Girolamo Benzoni, who travelled between 1541 and 1556 in these waters. Florida is derived from that of le Moyne map of 1591, with the flat shape of the southern land tongue. It is one of the earliest maps to detail northern South America and one of the few Caribbean maps of the period. The map was engraved to accompany the fourth part of de Bry's Grand Voyages. The islands of the West Indies are represented disproportionately large, and the Bahamas with the Islands Bahama and Lucaya are placed too far north. The legends indicate the four voyages of Christopher Columbus, and one of the earliest mentions of the Gulf Stream. 'One of the most spectacular maps of any part of the world from the [Age of Discovery] is the map Occidentalis Americae partis. The map is beautiful designed and engraved and very scarce'. (Potter: Antique Maps, p. 164). - Half of lower decorative border cut as usual because of the book size, remargined with an old paper strip. Minor soiling right to the top centrefold, the right margin and the lower corners. A printers crease right to the lower centrefold. Overall, a good and sharp impression of this spectacular map.

        Institutiones chirurgicae . pro chirurgis in praxis examinandi

      Ludovicus Sanchez, Madrid 1594 - FIRST EDITION, 8vo, ff. [4], 112, 83, [1]. Roman letter; large coat of arms of Philipp II of Spain on title, with-and-black decorated initials; marginal repairs to some fore edges occasionally affecting side notes; tiny worm holes at head of pp. 33-49. A good clean copy in modern boards First edition of this textbook for university-trained surgeons in the Spanish Kingdom. Luis Mercado (1525?-1606) was a renowned physician and professor in Valladolid. For his outstanding merit, he was appointed personal doctor to the kings Philipp II and III as well as leading practitioner of the kingdom (protomedico). He was a pioneer in gynaecology and paediatrics and the first scholar to provide an analytical, correct description of diphtheria and syphilis. As a proof of his posthumous fame, his name crops up several times in Burton’s Anatomy of Melancholy. Philipp II was concerned with the poor quality of Spanish medical practitioners and wanted to improve it. At his request, Mercado wrote this comprehensive account of contemporary knowledge on surgery, so as to standardize the requirements for graduates. The book is divided into two parts. The first deals with surgical practice with regard to cancers, wounds and ulcerations, while the second focuses on pharmacology and postoperative procedure. The examinees were asked to learn by heart all the contents. The standard manual for physicians, the Institutiones medicae, was published in the same year as a companion work. The crown ordered the universities of Salamanca, Valladolid and Alcalá de Henares to adopt both Mercado’s textbooks in their curricula and the two books to be printed and distributed. In his capacity as protomedico, Mercado supervised all the licensing examinations and retained the last word on final results. An uncommon and important work.

        La Cinthia favola boscareccia.

      Orazio Salviani per Giovanni Giacomo Carlino e Antonio Pace 1594 In 4to (cm 20), pergamena floscia coeva, pp. (8), 176. Marca tipografica al titolo. Leggere fioriture, ma ottima copia.PRIMA EDIZIONE di questo dramma pastorale ispirato all'Aminta di Torquato Tasso, di cui Noci era un grande ammiratore. Ristampato per due volte nel corso del Cinquecento, esso è dedicato al celebre pittore napoletano Giovanni Battista Caracciolo, seguace di Caravaggio.La trama racconta del ritorno di Cinthia, che, travestita da ragazzo, rende visita dopo quattro anni al suo amato Silvano, il quale, si vocifera, si sarebbe innamorato di un'altra donna. La favola del Noci costituisce una fonte diretta di The Queenes Arcadia (1606) di Samuel Daniel (cfr. J. Lawrence, "Who the devil taught thee so much Italian"?: Italian language learning and literary imitation in early modern England, Mancester, 2005, p. 103).«Questo testo del Noci si presenta non come un esempio di mescolanza di generi e modi, come accadde nella ricercata 'mistione' della Mirtilla [di Isabella Andreini], quanto invece come esempio di indicazione, più o meno esplicita, dei modelli stessi che presiedono alla codificazione della letteratura pastorale: insomma, quasi un ideale riepilogo dei principali luoghi di quella tradizione, che accompagna in filigrana il pur ben organizzato percorso diegetico della favola» (cfr. G. Distaso, Esempi di favola pastorale in area meridionale fra modelli di scrittua, polemiche letterarie ed echi parodici, in: "Teatro, scena, rappresentazione dal Quattrocento al Settecento"?, a cura di P. Andrioli, G.A. Camerino, G. Rizzo e P. Viti, Lecce, 2000, p. 239).Poco si sa della vita del poeta Carlo Noci. Presso la corte del principe di Conca, di cui era originario, egli conobbe Torquato Tasso e Giovanbattista Marino, che a quell'epoca, ancora giovanissimo, svolgeva le mansioni di segretario (cfr. C. Minieri Riccio, Memorie storiche degli scrittori nati nel Regno di Napoli, Napoli, 1844, p. 408).Edit16, CNCE 23579. M. Bregoli Russo, Renaissance Italian Theater, Firenze, 1984, nr. 430. N.

        Variarum lectionum libri XV ... accesserunt hac editione hymni sacri, & varia eiusdem auctoris poëmata

      Lugduni [i.e., Lyon]: Apud haered. Gulielmi Rovillii 16mo (12.1 cm, 4.76"). 621, [67] pp., final leaf blank; 62, [26] pp., final leaf blank.. 1594 First edition of Muret's classical commentaries to include the Hymni. The Variae, first published complete in 15 books in 1580, include excerpts from and explanations of both Greek and Latin texts, especially Cicero. A separate title-page introduces the Hymni (verses recited on specific holy days), followed by poems about illustrious contemporaries of Muret's — e.g., Raphael — and an index to the previous 15 books. The French humanist Muret (1526–85) has long been recognized as the best Latin prose stylist of the Renaissance, and his works were used as a model for students. Greatly admired for his excellent understanding and interpretation of classical texts, he was dubbed "le meilleur orateur du temps" in Italy and France by Montaigne, whom he tutored; and Scaliger mused that Muret "satirised the Ciceronians and at the same time expressed himself in a thoroughly Ciceronian style." LIke most of Muret's published work, these Variae are based on his academic lectures; however the scholar Lambinus accused Muret of plagiarism, and indeed it seems Muret "borrowed" bits from his work without permission. (In retaliation, Lambinus published their personal correspondence.) Muret's personal life was fraught with tribulation stemming from multiple accusations of homosexuality in various cities where he resided. From 1559 till his death, however, he lived in Rome under the protection of at least one cardinal and a pope. The text is in Latin and Greek, printed in roman and italic, with decorative headpieces and floriated initials. A letterpress diagram on p. 547 shows the Greek alphabet corresponding to numerals. Provenance: John Saltar (19th-century adolescent's signature, front pastedown); Henry Johns Gibbons, Rittenhouse (Philadelphia), 1923 (signature, front fly-leaf verso). Contemporary vellum with evidence of four ties and trace of oval stamp to front cover center, ink title to spine and bottom edge; soiled, with worm to spine/ pastedowns, hinges (inside) cracked, textblock starting to loosen. Paper age-toned and foxed, with small holes from natural flaws on two leaves (and two others partially uncut); Hymni dampstained in lower inner portions (not horribly). A few early ink annotations present.

In 1598 he embarked on travels through England and Scotland. In 1600 he became secretary to Sir Charles Blount, lord - deputy of Ireland. In this role he helped to suppress Tyrone's rebellion, an account of which and of his experiences in Ireland is given in Part II of his Itinerary.

He delights in statistics respecting the mileage of his daily journeys and the varieties in the values of the coins he encountered. His descriptions of the inns in which he lodged, of the costume and the food of the countries visited, render his work invaluable to the social historian". (DNB).
