MONTAIGNE Michel de
Abel L'Angelier, 1595. Folio pp. (xxiv) 523 (i). French in Roman letter, Latin in italic. Angelier's large woodcut device within ornate border on t-p, large woodcut initials, fine grotesque woodcut head and tail pieces, early autograph 'Scellier' on title with various bibliographical notes probably in his hand and his marginal annotations in places, some ms. editorial corrections by Mlle. de Gournay herself in text, bibliographical note dated 1654 on fly, a few later pencil underlinings. Light age yellowing, title page fractionally dusty, the odd marginal ink splash and thumb mark, small faded wine? stain in lower and inner margin of a few leaves, minor light marginal water-staining in places. A very good copy, crisp and clean with good margins in contemporary vellum over boards, yapp edges, all edges sprinkled red, probably recased. First folio and first issue of the essential, definitive early edition, published posthumously (Sayce and Maskell 7A). This copy has the privilege on verso to title, the detailed long preface by Mlle. de Gournay 'sa fille d'alliance', Montaigne's address to the reader and Angelier's device in the first state, and the final errata in the second state ('The first state is slightly commoner than the second' Sayce). The importance of this edition is threefold. First it comprises the final authorial corrections and amendments made by Montaigne following the edition of 1588, second it is the first complete edition of the text, Montaigne made more than 1400 additions of significance in this edition, last it was the first edition brought to the press b … [Click Below for Full Description]

BOUCHER (Jean)
1595. Petit in-8 de (12)-243 (3) pp., demi-veau blond, dos orné à nerfs, pièces de titre de maroquin rouge et vert (reliure du XIXe siècle). Edition originale rare de ce factum célèbre réhabilitant le régicide Jean Châtel. Châtel n'avait que 19 ans lorsqu'il s'introduisit, le 27 décembre 1594, dans la chambre de Gabrielle d'Estrée, et frappa Henri IV d'un coup de couteau qui ne l'atteignit qu'à la lèvre supérieure et lui brisa une dent. Il fut condamné à mort et écartelé en place de Grève. L'Apologie est ordinairement attribuée à Jean Boucher, sans autre motif que la violence des invectives adressées à Henri IV ; c'est un véritable appel au meurtre en la personne du roi. L'impression indique une officine étrangère ; il est probable qu'elle ait été exécutée aux Pays-Bas. Brunet V, 1146 ; Rothschild III, 2254 ; Hauser, Sources, IV, 3122. Une coiffe usée.

Plutarch, (c. A.D. 46-120).
London: by Richard Field for Bonham Norton, 1595. RARE PRINTING IN ENGLISH FROM THE 1500's. Very Scarce and Very Important. The Shakespeare Plutarch, the printing presumed to this day to have been used by Shakespeare in his research and historical writing. Only the second edition of North's first translation of Plutarch into English, this the rare issue with Norton's imprint instead of that of Thomas Wright. This copy with the 1740 signature of Sir John St Aubyn, 3rd Baronet, on the verso of the title-page. Printer's device on the titlepage, numerous woodcut portraits within elaborate woodcut borders as chapter-headings, various woodcut initials and head- and tail-pieces. Folio, handsomely bound in later full dark black morocco, the boards with a double gilt fillet border, the spines with gilt ruled bands and gilt lettering. [xiv], 1173 [20] pp. An honest and textually complete copy, for the most part very clean, lacking only the final few leaves of the index and probably a blank. The leaves of the dedication and "to the reader" are bound out of order but are all present, the title-page with early repairs from the back including replacement of a section missing from the upper right corner affecting several lines of the title, some preliminary leaves strengthened or repaired at the fore-edge affecting the marginal notations only, these leaves a bit more mellowed, the index somewhat worn at the edges and with some minor typical edge staining, very occasional minor worming or evidence of use or age, almost always constrained to the margins. The binding in very fine … [Click Below for Full Description]

Im Hintergrund die Silhouette der Stadt Nürnberg über den Hügeln zur Burg hin gesehen. Hübsch gestaltet auch der nach Fol. 222 eingebundene Stammbaum. - 1595 erschien dann eine zweite Auflage, kollationsgleich und mit demselben Titel von demselben Holzstock, jedoch mit dem typographischen Zusatz: "Nachgedruckt durch Paulum Kauffmann, A: 1595".

Antwerp: P. Gallaeo excudebat A. Coninx, 1595. Hardcover. Good. Oblong octavo atlas. 12 x 16 cm. Bound in contemporary limp vellum. Collated: [7], 1-2, 4-5, 7-109 pp, [2]. Engraved frontis, 107 maps (of 109). Lacking maps of Asia, p.3 and England, p. 6 [Anglia]. Some soiling, discoloration to some of pages, mostly to the margins. Contemporary ink marginalia to a few leaves. Repair to margin of maps 105-106 (Anatolia & Egypt) and an index leaf. Ink ownership signature and rubber stamp on title. Title margin slightly worn. <br> Ortelius first published the Theatrum Orbis Terrarium (The Theatre of the World) in 1570. "The publication of [the first edition] of this atlas marked an epoch in the history of cartography. It was the first uniformly sized, systematic collection of maps of the countries of the world based only on contemporary knowledge and in that sense may be called the first modern atlas" (Tooley Maps and Map-Makers p. 29, citing 1st ed.). This "pocket" version of Ortelius's atlas was used by travelers and students for whom the folio would be inconvenient or expensive. The Atlas includes Ortelius' famous world map: "Typus Orbis Terrarum," (p. 1) and his map of the Americas "Americae Sive Novi Orbis, Nova Descriptio," (p. 5) Phillips (Atlases) 394.; Koeman's Atlantes Neerlandici III.76, Ort. 56. The first Latin ed. of this version was published in 1589.

1595. Antique map, titled: 'Britannicarum Insularum Typus.' - (British Isles.) The very decorative map shows the British Isles including England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland including decorative scroll-cartouches and ships. Etching / engraving on hand laid (verge type) paper. Watermark: Shield with horn. Description: From an undetermined Latin ed. of the Ortelius Atlas: 'Theatrum Orbis Terrarum'. The map was first published in the 1595 edition of Ortelius' atlas. The map was made based upon modern information from Mercator's 1564 map of the British Isles, improved by a new outline from Saxton's 1579 map (Meurer p. 197, Karrow 56/16, p. 387-388) and ancient knowledge from Diodorus Siculus, Plinius, Appianus, Tacitus, Cæsar, Strabo and numerous other Roman writers. Ref: Van den Broecke #192; Shirley, R.W. (BI to 1650) 186, pl.42. Artists and Engravers: Made by 'Jan Wierix' after 'Abraham Ortelius'. Koeman notes that Jan Wierix was the engraver of this map incl. the very decorative ships. Abraham Ortelius was born 1528 in Antwerp. He studied mathematics, Greek and Latin and travelled a lot across Europe. He established a business in dealing with books and drawing maps. His first remarkable map was a 8 sheet world map in the year 1564, but only three copies have survived. In 1570 he issued the "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum", the first modern "Atlas" with uniformly sized maps in a systematic collection. The term "Atlas" was not used until Mercator introduced it 20 years later. Most of the maps in Theatrum have been engraved by Frans Hogenberg.

At the time of publication, the atlas was the most expensive book ever printed. Nevertheless it was a big success and around 7000 copies have been printed until 1612 in many editions and six different languages.
