      Caerte der Noordt custe van Engelandt, beginnende van Robinhodes baij tot Cocket EijlandtTaken from second volume of "Den Nieuwen Spieghel der Zeevaardt". Published in Leiden by Lucas Janszn. Wagehenaer, 1596. Coloured by a later hand. Size: 33 x 51 cm.This chart shows the Yorkshire, Durham and Northumberland coastlines from Robin Hood's Bay to Coquet Island. North is oriented to the right of the page. Part II of the "Spieghel ..." was first published in 1585 in Leiden by the Plantijn Press and this example of the map would appear to be a first edition - the title text is only in Dutch and text on the verso is also Dutch. The signature of the engraver, Doetecum, appears at lower right. The North Sea is decorated with sailing ships, sea monsters and an elaborate compass rose, while a scale of miles is also given at lower right.The " Spieghel der Zeevaardt " is unique among printed rutters of the sixteenth century, as it was the first to contain maps. Furthermore, it outranks any other rutter of the period with its splendid presentation of charts and text. As such, it stood out as a model for the folio pilot guides of the seventeenth century. Koeman writes; "Thanks to the unparalleled skill of the engravers Baptist and Ioannes Van Deutecom, the original manuscript maps were transformed into the most beautiful maps of the period. The composition and adornment have greatly contributed to the splendour of what originally were simple sketch charts; the typography of the Plantijn printing house further added to the quality of the book".

        Original Portraits, After Illustrations to Aliprando Capriolo's "Ritratti di Cento Capitani Illustri"

      - Album of 21 pen-and-ink portraits on laid paper after illustrations to Aliprando Capriolo's 1596 Ritratti di Cento Capitani Illustri. Approximately 185 x 143 mm each, tipped to larger sheets of wove paper. Small folio, [Italy: n.d., ca, 18th century]. Cased in full 18th-century Italian (Neapolitan?) brown calf over pasteboard, tooled in gold all-over, covers with two outer border rolls surrounding three double-ruled panels filled with rolls and solid tools decorated with silver paint (now mostly oxidized), inner panel with tulip tools at corner surrounding cartouche of gouges with center lozenge of floral tools, spine with raised bands in seven compartments with cherub tool, rebacked preserving original spine, later endpapers and edge gilding. For binding, cf. BL c154g12/Davis 859; BL c27e18; Davis III, 380. An 18th-century Italian album of 21 pen-and-ink portraits based on Aliprando Capriolo's Ritratti di Cento Capitani Illustri, 1596. These copies were probably made from Pompillio Totti’s edition of Capriolo, Ritratti et Elogil di Capitani Illustri, 1636. Totti altered Capriolo’s engravings, adding the coats of arms seen in many of the portraits here. Portraits include Tamerlane, Gattamelata, Roberto Sanseverino, and the condottieri Vitelli brothers. The binding is in a style common to the Salvioni workshop. Davis Gift III, 380, which Foot suggests was bound in an unknown Neapolitan workshop, shows the same wide outer roll on the covers.

        Universae Naturae Theatrum, In quo rerum omnium effectrices causae, & fines contemplantur, & continuae series quinque libris discutiuntur.

      Lyon, Jacob Roussin, 1596. 8vo. Contemporary limp vellum. Title-page printed in red and black. A fine copy. (16), 633 pp.. The rare first edition of Bodin's great final work, his main contribution to the field of natural philosophy, "The Theatre of Nature", which was written in 1590, but published for the first time in the year of his death, 1596. In spite of the fact that the "Theatrum" has been somewhat neglected by modern scholars and has for instance never translated into English in 1997, it is in fact one of his most important works. It constitutes the most systematic exposition of Bodin's vision of the world and is the culmination point of his systematic examination of things, revealing to us the full extent of his entire philosophy.In this Bodin's magnum opus of natural history, a completely new type of natural philosophy is constructed, one which attempts to combine religion with philosophy. By combining philosophical research concerning causes with a pious recognition of divine providence and the greatness of God, Bodin constantly reminds us of the importance of reason and reasoning at the same time that he refers to the Holy Scripture. Jean Bodin (1529/30 - 1596), "one of the towering figures in the history of French thought" (Scott), was a lawyer, economist, natural philosopher, historian, and one of the major political theorists of the sixteenth century. His main work, the "Six livres de la république" is one of the most important works of modern political thought. Here Bodin gave the first systematic statement of sovereignty and coined the term "political science". With his theory of the State and statement of Sovereignty, he fundamentally changed the history of political thought in the West. The "Six livres de la république" is Bodin's most famous and frequently read work, and ever since the 18th century, it has completely overshadowed everything else that he wrote. In the 17th century, however, Bodin's "Theatrum" was considered very important to the understanding of Bodin's entire philosophical system, including the political. It is the only one of his works that attempts to actually do that which he ever since the beginning of his career set out to do: to methodologically study all things, human and divine.Bodin does this in a manner that made it universally understandable. "While its erudition and philosophical originality suited it well to professors and scholars, Bodin's "Theatrum" was also designed to be pedagogical, with its question-and-answer format and its broad coverage of natural philosophy from first principles to metals and minerals, plants and animals, souls, angels, and the heavenly bodies." (Ann Blair, The Theater of Nature: Jean Bodin and Renaissance Science, p. 17). Tchemerzine: II:250

        The historie of George Castriot, surnamed Scanderbeg, King of Albanie.

      London: William Ponsonby (pr. by R. Field) Folio (28.8 cm, 11.3"). [14], 498, [18] pp.. 1596 Sole edition: English translation of the exploits of Scanderbeg or Iskender Bey, the Albanian national hero — "containing his famous actes, his noble deedes of Armes, and memorable victories against the Turkes, for the Faith of Christ." Marinus Barletius Scodrensis (ca. 1450–1512), or Barleti as he was known in Albanian, was an eyewitness to the Turkish invasion of his native city, Shkodrës. He published this account of George Kastrioti, the prince known as "the Christian Alexander," roughly 40 years after Kastrioti's death. Barleti's work was originally translated from Latin into French (and notably expanded upon) by Jacques de Lavardin, and taken thence into English by Zachary Jones; the preliminary matter here includes the => first appearance in print of Spenser's dedicatory sonnet "Upon the Historie of George Castriot." Provenance: The Pacific School of Religion (properly released). 17th-century calf, spine with raised bands and gilt-stamped leather title-label; spine with extremities chipped and with hand-inked paper shelving label; binding scuffed, with spine and joints unobtrusively refurbished. As per provenance front pastedown with institutional bookplate, title-page recto and verso and one other page with rubber-stamp, back fly-leaf and free endpaper with slip and pocket. Lower outer corners of first few leaves chewed, without loss; likewise upper outer corners of 21 leaves, with loss of letters on the first of these and several words on later ones. One leaf with tear from outer margin touching text, without loss; generally, gently age-toned with scattered light spots or smudges. An imperfect copy, still a largely perfectly readable and entirely worthwhile example of an uncommon item.

        Dictionario coloquios o dialogos en quatro lenguas, flamenco, frances, español y italiano

      Cornelis Claesz, Amsterdam 1596 - Oblong 16mo. ff. (248). A-Z8, Aa-Hh8. Alternating Roman and Italic letter in double or quadruple columns. Light age yellowing, some browning in places (poor quality paper), the occasional spot or mark. A good copy in contemporary vellum over boards yapp edges, all edges red, binding a little soiled from use. A very good copy of this charming and interesting polyglot dictionary or vocabulary, in Dutch, French, Spanish and Italian "There were several major traditions of polyglot dictionaries in sixteenth and seventeenth-century Europe. ( ) Two other traditions, which account between them for about three hundred published dictionaries, are too important not to consider. ( ) The first is that of small, thematically ordered dictionaries, characteristically in oblong duo-decimo format, with different languages in parallel columns across an opening, many of which had the word Vocabulista in their title. These ultimately derived from an Italian-German dictionary of 1477. ( ) A similar series of dictionaries, more than ninety in all, derived from the French-Dutch dictionary of Noel de Berlaimont which was first published in 1536." John Considine ‘Dictionaries in Early Modern Europe: Lexicography and the Making of Heritage’. Nothing is known of the author except that he was a schoolmaster from Antwerp. Up to 1703 there appeared more than one hundred editions expanding the original bilingual book into books which list up to eight languages. There are twenty three editions in four languages, covering all the Romance languages including Latin. Most of the editions were printed in Dutch speaking areas (Amsterdam, Antwerp, Rotterdam, Ypres) suggesting the books were aimed at Dutch speakers, probably particularly merchants, who needed to learn other languages. This is also shown in the set up of the books as often the first, or left-most language is Dutch. The inclusion of Italian in this edition was unusual. "A special case is Italian. In the sixteenth century it was one of the most important languages in Continental Europe, but not so in the Netherlands This is why Italian was included in the multilingual versions but not chosen as a title. There are enough regional and cultural reasons to prove that German and French, the two adjacent languages, and Spanish, for political reasons, were more at the focus of the interest of the Dutch-speaking people." Werner Hüllen. ‘English Dictionaries, 800-1700: The Topical Tradition’. These eminently practical works were often heavily used and so rarely survive in anything like as good condition as this copy.

        Chirurgiae universalis opus absolutum

      1596 - 3 parties , (4), 108, 260, 71 Venise, Roberto Meietto, 1596, in-folio, 3 parties , (4), 108, 260, 71 et (1) pages, demi-veau, dos à 6 nerfs richement orné et portant une pièce de titre en maroquin rouge, tranches rouges (pastiche XVIIIe), Seconde édition latine, la première avait paru en 1573, et entre ces deux éditions avait été publiée, par deux fois, une traduction italienne. Ce grand et classique traité de chirurgie de la Renaissance vaut pour la capacité de son auteur à prendre en compte l'ensemble des héritages existants : grec et latin, bien sûr, mais aussi arabe. D'autre part, il se distingue aussi du fait de ses nombreuses observations personnelles, et du grand développement qu'il donna à la chirurgie crânienne et à la trépanation (voir le premier livre du second Traité, et notamment les pages 4 et 5 où l'auteur propose quelques "cranoirum imagines"). Mais surtout, il donne toute l'ampleur de ses qualités de grand praticien dans la dernière partie de sa somme chirurgicale : une "Officina Chirurgica" où il passe en revue, décrit et explique, tous les instruments de médecine qui sont susceptibles d'être utilisés, à l'époque, en chirurgie. Chacun étant gravé, on compte environ 350 représentations et descriptions d’instruments, ainsi que des scènes d’intervention chirurgicale (pages 22, 23, 54 et 55). Sur la page de titre, un ex-libris manuscrit daté de 1677 et signé "Andre van der Wenden", sur la première garde, un second ex-libris manuscrit daté de 1914 mais non déchiffré. Hormis quelques rousseurs en marge, très bel exemplaire. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

A few other minor repairs to blank margins. Else a handsome, near fine copy. With bookplates of Boies Penrose and another bookplate on the rear free endpaper. Raleigh's voyage to find El Dorado Sir Walter Raleigh, famous Elizabethean courtier and adventurer, was involved in numerous schemes for establishing English colonies in the New World and in raiding the Spanish empire in the Americas. In the 1580s he was a major figure in the English court and in naval and military ventures. But in 1592 Raleigh fell from grace for marrying one of the Queen's ladies-in-waiting without her approval, and was thrown in the Tower. When released, he had lost much of his power and influence. He sought to regain it, and make a fortune, by a voyage to northern South America to seek the legendary city of El Dorado, where he believed he would find the streets paved in gold. Raleigh's voyage, usually called his second (after his voyage to found the first Virginia colony in 1585) took place under a cloud. He was strictly enjoined from attacking the Spanish, but on arrival in the Caribbean he attacked Trinidad, siezing the Spanish governor, and raiding the coast on Venezuela. He then pressed up the Orinoco River, going more than four hundred miles upstream, where he turned back after obtaining samples of what appeared to be gold. This book details his pioneering exploration, in which he accurately describes the country in the most precise description made until the mid-19th century. The book also theorizes, at length, on the chimerical city of El Dorado and its vast wealth, and on the extraordinary gold ornaments he observed among the Indians of the region. The gold samples, however, proved to be worthless. On his return from the El Dorado expedition Raleigh resumed his active place in the English court, but was accused of treason on the accession of James I and confined in the Tower until 1616. When released, he made one last attempt at finding El Dorado, in a disasterous second voyage there which ended in total failure, and ultimately in Raleigh's execution. This is the third issue as identified by European Americana and Church (all were issued in 1596 and have essentially the same text and setting). This copy contains the misprint "Gallie" for "Gallego" on p.[1], line 22. According to the entry in Sabin a copy was offered by a London bookseller in 1885 at £50.

In a chemise and half morocco and cloth slipcase, spine gilt. A handsome copy of this important and influential work, with beautiful hand-colouring A remarkable copy of the first edition of the most important description of the East Indies in the Age of Discovery, with beautiful early hand-coloring and in a handsome contemporary vellum binding, likely a special presentation copy. Linschoten's work was of tremendous importance, as it unlocked the secrets of Asian trade routes, once the exclusive domain of the Portuguese, for the rest of Europe Jan Huygen van Linschoten (1563-1611) a Dutchman born in Haarlem in 1563, had an "avaricious thirst for knowledge which enabled him to get detailed information of land and sea as far afield as the Spice Islands and China" (Penrose). Linschoten travelled to Goa in 1583 as a clerk of the newly-appointed Portuguese Archbishop of Goa. He made a few trips into Indian, compiling notes on his experiences, gleaned information on sea routes from Portuguese sailors, and collected information from other sources as well. Linschoten left India in 1589, hired as a pepper factor for the Fugger and Welser interests, where he learned about the organization and administration of the spice trade. Returning to Holland in 1592 (after a two-year stay in the Azores), he prepared his notes for the Amsterdam publisher, Claeszoon, in response to interest in the Netherlands and other European countries about commercial possibilities in Asia. As trade in the Far East was dependent on routes via America or Africa, his work eventually encompassed the entire globe, including Spanish and Portuguese activities in America. Linschoten's practical experience lent authenticity to his work, and it remains one of the most important of all travel books. Linschoten's Itinerario... and the two other works published in 1595 and 1596 (which should properly be found together, as here) soon was considered the single most significant source regarding the East and West Indies and numerous editions were published in Dutch, Latin, French, German, and English. Klooster describes the work as "a magnificent panorama of pictures and maps of the non-European world. Itinerario contained so much detailed and accurate information about shipping lanes, winds, and currents, that seafarers could use it virtually as a handbook. Many of his maps were in fact copies of the excellent models of the Portuguese cartographer Fernão Vaz Dourado." It was the most comprehensive account of the East and West Indies available at the beginning of the 17th century. As well as including important travel accounts taken from contemporary Portuguese, Dutch, and Spanish sources, it is the first work to include precise sailing instructions for the Indies, and, according to Church (and other authorities), "it was given to each ship sailing from Holland to India." The second section, Reys-gheschrift vande navigatien..., was published in 1595, a year before the Itinerario... , and is bound last in this copy. The text gives detailed sailing directions for the East Indies, as well as for Brazil and the West Indies. The third part (bound second in this copy) gives an account of America on pages 17-82, especially the coastal regions, and includes information on the African coast as well. It is found here in its first state (see Church), and was published in 1596. The maps include van Langren's maps of the East Indies and South America (including the Caribbean and Florida), and the double-hemispherical world map of Plancius dated 1596 (Shirley 192). The marvellous plates include scenes of Asia, particularly Java, China, and India. Several of the plates depict activities in Goa, including a wonderful panoramic view of the market, while other plates depict Portuguese travellers on land and on sea. Linschoten's is an important work that served not only as a valuable record, but also as a catalyst for change in the balance of power amongst European trading nations in the east: "the navigator's vade mecum for the Eastern seas" (Penrose). When Linschoten returned from Goa to his home in the Netherlands, he did so at a time when the people of northern Europe and particularly his countrymen were especially interested in what he had to report concerning the trading activities of the Portuguese in the East. His most important and far-reaching observations concerned the gradual decline of Portuguese power in the East and her ability to protect her trade routes and monopolies. This, together with the trading possibilities he detailed, encouraged a series of Dutch, French, and English fleets to set sail for the Spice Islands, and beyond to China and Japan. Lach says that Linschoten's description of Goa is "one of the most original and reliable narratives prepared during the sixteenth century on life at the hub of Portugal's Eastern empire and still is regarded as one of the best sources for Goa's history at the peak of its glory....The original edition...contains a number of excellent maps, three of which are of great value for the study of Asia. These maps, which are much better and more detailed than earlier printed maps, were clearly derived from the latest and best Portuguese charts of the Eastern oceans and sea coats" - Lach. Parry calls Linschoten's work "a journal of human adventure and observation, an uplifting story that appeals on many levels." "Fine copies of this work with all the maps and plates are extremely rare" - Church catalogue. A work of tremendous consequence and importance, here in a handsome copy with lovely contemporary hand-coloring.

"Rastell" in small later hand to head of title page, spark burns and tiny ink smudges to a few leaves, interior otherwise clean. A handsome copy. * Third edition. A landmark in the history of pleading first published in 1566, Rastell's Entries superseded its predecessors. The volume had notes and references and the material was not gathered exclusively from printed sources, but from "the most authentic source - the offices of the prothonotaries.... Prothonotaries were officials whose duty it was to enter pleadings in an action; and they therefore had unrivalled opportunities for accumulating a store of such precedents. Rastell seems to have been the earliest writer to make use of this store of precedents. He therefore produced a book of precedents in pleading of a wholly new type; and this example was copied by the numerous other books which appeared during the seventeenth century."

        [In Greek:] XENOPHONTOS TA HEURISKOMENA. [then:] XENOPHONTIS, PHILOSOPHI ET IMPERATORIS CLARISSIMI, QUAE EXSTANT OPERA. [WORKS IN GREEK AND LATIN]

      Francofurti: Apud Andreae Wecheli heredes, 1596, 1594. n. Hardcover. A Very Substantial and Dazzlingly Gilt Award for Excellence in the Study of Greek. mm (). 6 p.l., 1,013 pp., 1,014-1,213 cols., [57] pp., [1] leaf (colophon). Two continuously paginated volumes bound in one. Translated by Johannes Leunclavius. EXTREMELY HANDSOME 17TH CENTURY FRENCH CALF, both boards with wide gilt floral border, covers with a field of fleurs-de-lys enclosing at center a large rectangle containing the gilt arms of the Parlement of Normandy (two lions passant holding up a wreath in which a sword and sceptres support scales of justice, the wreath also containing a banderole with the motto "Compensat, Vindicat, Aequat" ["She Balances, She Lays Claim, She Makes Equal"]); wide raised bands, spine with compartments of gilt fleurs-de-lys within double gilt fillets, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt (three gouges on covers very carefully repaired, with gilt replicated, perhaps at the original time of binding, hinges apparently tightened). Printer's device on title page and colophon. Parallel columns of Latin and Greek. Second leaf with blindstamp seal of the Jesuit College of Rouen; front flyleaf with ink presentation inscription dated 1680 (see below); occasional underlining in pencil. Dibdin II, 567; VD16 X-10; Graesse VI/2, 483-84; Brunet V, 1490. Two hairline cracks on top of front cover, slight rubbing to gilt tooling at edges, minor foxing throughout (due to poor paper quality), more noticeably foxed in a couple of dozen gatherings (though never severe), intermittent very faint dampstain to lower right margin, otherwise a clean copy with ample margins in an especially well-preserved binding, the gilt still bright, and the leather showing only general minor wear. This is the most esteemed early modern translation of Xenophon's "Opera," offered here in a beautiful French prize binding executed 85 years after the volume's publication. Xenophon (ca. 430-354 B.C.) was a student of Socrates, and aside from Plato's, his works contain the only surviving examples of Socratic dialogues. Xenophon was best known to his contemporaries as an historian and general, as well as an opponent of Athenian democracy. Although born in Athens, Xenophon greatly admired Sparta and its political structure, and he eventually went to war for Sparta against the Athenians (this earned him land in Sparta, but exile from Athens). Xenophon's philosophical writings found popularity in the Renaissance, and some scholars have suggested that Machiavelli was particularly influenced by Xenophon's more "practical" (i.e., ruthless) approach to politics. According to Dibdin and Brunet, our translation by Hans Löwenklau (or Leunclavius, 1533?-93) was regarded by scholars at the time as not only superior to those that came before, but preferable even to the more famous 1625 Parisian edition by Antoine Estienne. The present second and enlarged edition (following the first in 1595) includes additional commentary and an index of Greek words and phrases compiled by Emilio and Francesco Porto. Given these additions, this particular copy is a most appropriate prize: the second flyleaf has an extensive inscription, announcing the awarding of the volume to Gabriel Boffinet, a student at the Archdiocesan Jesuit College in Rouen, for his excellence in Greek (the award made possible thanks to the generosity of the Parlement of Normandy). The presentation is signed by Charles Delaistre, then Provincial of the Society of Jesus in France, and is dated 20 August 1680. Boffinet (and subsequent readers) took excellent care of this book, but clearly used it as well, as there are occasional marks throughout in a sepia pencil, annotating and underlining key passages. Prize bindings from the 17th century appear on the market from time to time, but few could possibly be more impressive than this large, thick, and elaborately gilt volume.

        DISCOVERIE OF THE LARGE, RICH, AND BEUUTIFUL EMPYRE OF GUIANA, WITH A RELATION OF THE GREAT AND GOLDEN CITIE OF MANOA (WHICH THE SPANYARDS CALL EL DORADO) AND OF THE PROVINCES OF EMERIA, ARROMAIA, AMAPAIA, AND OTHER COUNTRIES; WITH THEIR RIVERS, ADJOYNING

      London, 1596. Small quarto. Full polished calf, leather labels, by Riviere; spine richly gilt in compartments, gilt inner dentelles, a.e.g. Upper margin of titlepage skillfully extended, with three letters and parts of ten other letters in almost imperceptible pen facsimile. A few other minor repairs to blank margins. Else a handsome, near fine copy. With bookplates of Boies Penrose and another bookplate on the rear free endpaper. Sir Walter Raleigh, famous Elizabethan courtier and adventurer, was involved in numerous schemes for establishing English colonies in the New World and in raiding the Spanish empire in the Americas. In the 1580s he was a major figure in the English court and in naval and military ventures. But in 1592, Raleigh fell from grace for marrying one of the Queen's ladies-in-waiting without the Queen's approval, and was thrown in the Tower. When released, he had lost much of his power and influence. He sought to regain it, and make a fortune, by a voyage to northern South America to seek the legendary city of El Dorado, where he believed he would find the streets paved in gold. Raleigh's voyage, usually called his second (after his voyage to found the first Virginia colony in 1585) took place under a cloud. He was strictly enjoined from attacking the Spanish, but on arrival in the Caribbean he attacked Trinidad, seizing the Spanish governor, and raiding the coast of Venezuela. He then pressed up the Orinoco River, going more than 400 miles upstream, where he turned back after obtaining samples of what appeared to be gold. This book details his pioneering exploration, in which he accurately describes the country in the most precise description made until the mid-19th century. The book also theorizes, at length, on the chimerical city of El Dorado and its vast wealth, and on the extraordinary gold ornaments he observed among the Indians of the region. The gold samples, however, proved to be worthless. On his return from the El Dorado expedition Raleigh resumed his active place in the English court, but was accused of treason on the accession of James I and confined in the Tower until 1616. When released, he made one last attempt at finding El Dorado, in a disastrous second voyage there which ended in total failure, and ultimately in Raleigh's execution. This is the third issue as identified by EUROPEAN AMERICANA and CHURCH (all were issued in 1596 and have essentially the same text and setting). This copy contains the misprint "Gallie" for "Gallego" on page [1], line 22. According to the entry in Sabin, a copy was offered by a London bookseller in 1885 at £50.

        The Discoverie of the Large, Rich and Bewtiful Empyre of Guiana,

      London: Robert Robinson,, 1596. with a relation of the great and Golden Citie of Manoa (which the Spanyards call El Dorado) And of the Provinces of Emeria, Arromaia, Amapaia, and other Countries, with their rivers, adjoyning. Small quarto (182 ×135 mm). Old limp blind-stamped vellum. Custom brown morocco box. Woodcut ornament to title, occasional woodcut initials and headpieces. Pale dampstain, final leaf P4 with marginal tears and a chip, wormtrack to inner blank margins of leaves B2-D1, binding soiled and with small tears, front free endpaper relaid, rear endpaper lacking; overall a very good copy with ample margins. First edition, with 12v line 12 beginning "it, there". There were three editions of this work published in the same year, more or less page-for-page reprints but with many minor differences between them sufficient to show that they are distinct editions. Sabin considers this the third, but more recently (1991) the third volume of the revised edition of STC has named this edition as the true first. The caption title on leaf B1r and running titles on pages B2v, B3r, and B4v are in two settings; the caption title reads either "Sir Walter Raleghs discouerie of the golden empire of Guiana." or "The discouerie of Guiana." This copy has the latter setting. "In this work Raleigh gives an account of his second voyage (1595) and seems to confirm the marvellous tales concerning the Spanish city of El Dorado, which he calls by the Indian name 'Manoa'. Camus says he described the country with the exactness of a person who had been born there, but that when he speaks of the richness of Guiana he seems to have been seduced by false appearances and the accounts of the natives and Spaniards, as he did when describing the Amazons and the people whose faces seemed placed on their breasts. Another writer, with perhaps greater justness, says: 'Raleigh takes the utmost pains to state what he saw with his own eyes, what he was told by the Spaniards, or by the natives of the country, and what he inferred of the great riches of Guiana, from their accounts compared with his own observations.' This work was made use of by Hakluyt (Vol. 3); De Bry, Great Voyages, Part VIII; Hulsius, Part V; and in many other collections of voyages. Garnett includes it in this list of Three Hundred Notable Books (p. 40)" (Church). "Dedicated to Cecil and Howard of Effingham, it was an elegant and memorable piece of travel writing, at once a self-justification and a call to exploit his discoveries … The book was read widely, both at home and abroad. Latin, German, and Dutch editions all appeared within five years …Yet, all these tales of distant marvels failed to move the Cecils or the queen." (ODNB).
