      typis Comini Venturae 1596 In-16 gr. (mm. 185 x 127), p. pergam. coeva, 16 cc.nn., 125 cc. num., 1 c.b., 10 cc.nn., vignetta alle armi silografata al frontesp.; testat. e capilettera figur. "Edizione originale" di questa importante opera su Bergamo, preceduta cronologicamente solo dal "De origine et temporibus urbis Bergomi" (Venezia, 1532) di Francesco Bellafini (con un altro scritto da lui edito, cioè una descrizione della città di M.A. Michiel). Il "Theatrum", che apparve postumo a cura del figlio Mario, è diviso in 6 parti, ciascuna preceduta da un ?Argumentum? di Io.B. Mageni. Il testo è in esametri con note a margine. In quest?opera il Muzio descrisse, non di rado con dovizia di particolari, le vicende della storia di Bergamo, i luoghi, gli edifici notevoli, le istituzioni pubbliche e private, le famiglie ragguardevoli e le numerose personalità che nelle varie discipline onorarono la città. In Appendice lo scritto ?De Rebus Bergomensibus? di Moyses Muzio, autore vissuto all'inizio del VIII secolo d.C. al tempo di Giustiniano II, cui l'opera e' dedicata, che Achille Muzio considera proprio antenato. Il breve trattato descrive l'ubicazione geografica e la configurazione urbana della citta' a quell'epoca. Nato nei primi anni del Cinquecento e appartenente a una distinta famiglia bergamasca, scrisse opere latine in distici elegiaci imitando lo stile di Ovidio. Godette di buone e frequenti relazioni con gli uomini più colti della Bergamo del suo tempo e morì nel 1594. Cfr. ?Le ediz. del XVI sec.? (Lombarde),I,57 - Schlosser Magnino, p. 570: ?contiene notizie storico-artistiche? - Chiodi ?Le cinquecentine della Biblioteca Mai di Bergamo?, p. 418. Restauro per fori di tarlo al margine interno di 12 cc., altrim. ben conservato.

        De Vita Emmanuelis Philiberti Allobrogum Ducis et Subalpinorum Principis, Libri duo.

      Io. Dominicum Tarinum,, Augustae Taurinorum, 1596 - Cm. 32, pp. (16) 235 (1). Grande stemma sabaudo inciso al frontespizio, ogni pagina inquadrata in un filetto. Testate, bei capolettera e fregi tipografici nel testo. Bella legatura seicentesca in piena pergamena molle con fregi in oro centrali e filetti in oro ad inquadrare i piatti. Titoli ms. al dorso. Qualche piccola mancanza alle estremità dei piatti, ma bell'esemplare fresco, genuino e marginoso, a carte perfettamente candide. L'autore fu scrittore e uomo politico, grande erudito del suo tempo, nato a Milano nel 1528 e morto nel 1601. Prima edizione di un'opera significativa nell'ambito dell'editoria piemontese del '500, dedicata alla vita di Emanuele Filiberto (1528-1580). Come la gran parte degli esemplari censiti, anche il presente è privo (verosimilmente dall'origine) del ritratto. Non comune, soprattutto in tale stato di conservazione ed impreziosito da una legatura affascinante ed assai decorativa. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Nova Hispania, et Nova Galicia.

      Copper engraved double page map, had colored in outline, large colored cartouche, 34.7 x 48. 3 cm (13 3/4" x 19"). Latin text on verso. Some aging and toning, verso repairs along center fold, and a few other places, tear at crease in lower portion of map, lower margin partially replaced below neat line, which is defective in one place; despite defects, an attractive map with a nice impression. Jannson (1596-1664) was a Dutch mapmaker during the "golden age" of Dutch cartography. He started out as a publisher and bookseller, but when he married the daughter of another map maker, Jodocus Hondius, he got into that business. In 1633 he and his brother-in=law (Henry Hodicus) produced the two volume edition of the Mercator Atlas. The present map shows Mexico City and points west, and the west coast of Mexico shown from present day Tuxpan to Acapulco de Juarez. A large cartouche shows a lion holding a sword on the top of the royal shield of Spain, which is flanked by a man and woman in Greek style togas. Portinaro and Knirsch p.315.

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.

        [ICONES, HABITUS GETUSQUE INDORUM AC LUSITANORUM PER INDIAM VIVENTIUM, TEMPLORUM AEDIUM, ARBORUM, FRUTUM, HERBARUM, AROMATUM]

      [Amsterdam: Cornelis Claesz, ca. 1596-1604].. Twenty-nine (of thirty) plates, plus two maps and one extra plate. Oblong quarto. Contemporary Dutch vellum, gilt. Cockled, soiled. Marginal stains on two plates; one plate chipped in margin, not affecting text. Very good. In a cloth clamshell case, leather label. This extremely rare portfolio of plates consists of fine early impressions of Linschoten's famous views of Portuguese Asia. They are among the first eyewitness illustrations of the East to reach Europe, and were by far the most widely disseminated. Donald Lach has called them "a watershed in Europe's pictorial impression of Asia." They rank among the most influential images of the period, and appeared in the many subsequent editions of Linschoten's works. The illustrations were executed by Joannes and Baptista Doetechum from sketches brought back by Linschoten. Linschoten described the images of the people, places, methods of travel, and animals of Asia as "counterfeits from life," which would give a realistic representation of what he saw, but also a general perception of the reality of the distant East. In the present copy, a large, double-page view of Goa is missing, while two maps, one of Mozambique and one of Ascension Island, have been added. Also added is an untitled panorama of an Indonesian or Malaysian procession. This plate is likely connected to the 1598 Claesz publication of Houtman & Loewijk's account of the first Dutch expedition. It seems clear that the present item is one of the very rare issues of the plates produced for separate sale by Linschoten's publisher, Cornelis Claesz. Claesz sold the images and maps separately from the ITINERARIO..., under a title translated as THE FIGURES AND MAPS OF JAN HUYGHEN. He used Latin and Dutch captions, as in our copy, in order to increase the images' marketability. Four similar sets of Linschoten plates are known, but only one of these, at the Atlas van Stolk in Rotterdam, has a titlepage. The other three copies which, like ours, lack titlepages, are at the Universiteitsbibliotheek in Amsterdam (containing all the plates), the Herzog August Bibliothek in Wolfenbüttel and the Amsterdams Scheepvaort Museum (lacking some plates as well as the titlepage). They all have Latin and Dutch text beneath each image. In Tiele's MEMOIR (1867), on page 103 he discusses an edition of the ICONES... containing twenty-nine plates and no titlepage. Ernst Van Den Boogaart, who has produced a fine study of the publication history, iconographic significance, and coded messages of Linschoten's work, examines these issues in great detail. The Linschoten plates were produced to accompany his famed ITINERARIO..., in which he gave his perceptions of the culture, customs, and societies of Asia. Linschoten had lived in Goa for six years from 1583, and while he never ventured far from the Portuguese capital, he did have 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" (Boies Penrose). He released his work at a time when Europe was desperately in need of knowledge about the Far East. A wonderful collection of Asian and early travel iconography, in an exceptionally rare edition.

        La Pratica di Prospettiva

      Venice: Girolamo Franceschi, 1596. Hardcover. Very Good. Folio [39.5 x 27.5 cm]. (4) ff., 1-43 consecutively numbered plates; (1) ff. [colophon for book one]; plates 44-65; includes engraved title page, half-title for part two; full-page colophon to part one with large woodcut device. Bound in contemporary flexible vellum. First title page retaining original margin and thus outer deckled edges are folded in. Some scattered foxing buy generally very good, with brilliant impressions of the architectural and geometrical plates. An unusual copy, retaining the original size, fully-deckled engraved title-page (usually severely cropped) of the scarce first edition of this striking work on perspective. Composed by Accademia del Disegno member Lorenzo Sirigatti, this is the first work to articulate in print that the full effect of the perspective frame - for instance a stage set - requires the viewer to be positioned along the main axis (Millard). This is one of the major Italian books on the subject of perspective, combining the visual language of the German model-book tradition of Jamnitzer and Lencker with the Italian tradition of linear perspective treated previously by Serlio and Barbaro, especially as applied to architectural theory and stage design. The first section of the work consists of 43 plates, each with explanatory text, which takes the reader progressively from simple to more complex examples of perspectival illustration, starting with basic geometrical forms (the square, circle, polygon) then more complex architectural forms (arches, crossvaults, staircases, doors, capitols, facades), culminating in the mazzocchio, viola, lute, and a design of a stage. The second part, consisting of a series of 21 full-page plates, focuses on more highly finished architectural details-the architrave, capitol, arch, façade etc.-and, according to Edgarton, "special problems of chiaroscuro including several remarkable engravings of shaded spheres," ie. polyhedral shapes of varying complexity and strangeness. Sirigatti was also influential beyond the realm of drawing, design, and architecture. Edgerton writes that Galileo "most certainly studied" La pratica di prospettiva, which was published in Venice while Galileo was teaching nearbyby in Padova, and that when Galileo and Thomas Harriot simultaneously pioneered the use of the telescope to study the moon's surface, it was Galileo's training in chiaroscuro that led him to see mountains and craters where Harriot only saw "strange spottedness." * Mortimer 479; Fowler 396; Millard 129 (1625); Adams S1224; Cigognara 860; Samuel Edgerton, The Mirror, the Window, and the Telescope: How Renaissance Linear Perspective Changed Our Vision of the Universe (Cornell, 2009)

      Amsterdam: Cornelis Claesz, 1596-1595-1596.. Three parts bound in one volume (parts two and three bound in reverse order in this copy). Text in double columns. [8],160; 134,[4],135-147,[8]; 82,[1]pp. plus a total of six folding or double-page maps, thirty- six folding or double-page plates, and a single-page portrait of Linschoten. Folio. Contemporary vellum, elaborately tooled in gilt, spine gilt, silk ties, yapp edges; recased, with new endpapers. Maps and folding plates with occasional slight chipping or splits at folds, repaired on verso in some cases. Occasional tanning or foxing. Overall, a handsome copy, brilliantly colored. In a chemise and half morocco and cloth slipcase, spine gilt. 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 India, 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 following a two-year stay in the Azores, he prepared his notes for the Amsterdam publisher, Claeszoon, in response to interest of 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 coasts." 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.

      Carta geografica della penisola di classica ispirazione Mercatoriana, ripresa da quella pubblicata a Duisburg pochi anni prima nel 1589. Le differenze sono nei toponimi in grassetto e con diverso carattere, nel mare realizzato in puntinato e dalla maggiore presenta di elementi decorativi, come i vascelli, che la rendono assai più elegante e raffinata del suo prototipo. Secondo Borri la carta è inserita per la prima volta nel "Le grands Vojages" del De Bry, ipotesi che tuttavia tendiamo ad escludere. L'opera nasce infatti come pubblicazione separata; esemplari sono conosciuti inseriti nella opera di Jean Jacques Boissard (1528-1602) "Romanae Vrbis Topographiae & Antiquitatum, quâ succincte & breviter describuntur omnia quæ tam publice quam privatim videntur anim-adversione digna" edita a Francoforte nel 1626, dove sono presenti anche due piante di Roma sempre del De Bry.

        Typus Orbis Terrarum

      Acquaforte e bulino, priva di firma. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, consueta piega centrale, piccole ossidazioni, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione.La mappa, appartiene agli atlanti editi dalla cosiddetta Scuola Cartografica di Colonia. Per circa mezzo secolo, Colonia fu il centro più importante nella produzione cartografica cinquecentesca, dovuta principalmente a rifugiati fiamminghi ed olandesi che fuggivano dalle persecuzioni religiose. Tra i principali esponenti della Scuola, citiamo Matthaeus Quad, Johannes Metellus, Giovanni Botero e Frans Hogenberg, che ne fu il fondatore. Gli atlanti spesso venivano pubblicati in forma anonima o con l?utilizzo di alcuni pseudonimi proprio a causa dei problemi politici e religiosi che caratterizzavano il periodo storico. Jan Matal o Metellus, francese di nascita è attivo a Louvaine ed a Colonia, dove si rifugia proprio per sfuggire alle persecuzioni dei regnanti cattolici e dove muore nel 1597. Fu tra i maggiori cartografi del tempo e, insieme al Quad e al Hogenberg stesso, il principale esponente della scuola coloniese. Giovanni Botero (1544 ? Torino 1617) è stato un presbitero, scrittore e filosofo italiano, autore delle Relazioni universali, un trattato di geografia politica pubblicato per la prima volta a Roma nel 1591 senza illustrazioni cartografiche. L?opera divenne subito molto importante ed oggetto di studio in tutta Europa, dando inizio praticamente allo studio della demografia. Lambert Andreas (attivo tra il 1590 ed il 1598) fu principalmente editore, tuttavia, alcune delle mappe nelle sue pubblicazioni sono a lui stesso attribuite, sebbene in maniera dubitativa. Dal punto di vista cartografico le mappe sono una derivazione delle carte pubblicate ad Anversa da Abraham Ortelius, per la prima volta nel 1570. L?intaglio delle mappe viene attribuito a Frans Hogenberg. La carta che presentiamo è tratta dall?edizione tedesca delle opere di Giovanni Botero, denominata Theatrum oder Shawspiegel, edita nel 1596 da Lambert Andreas, che nello stesso anno pubblica anche l?edizione con testo latino. La grandissima rarità dell'opere della scuola di Colonia, insieme alla scarsità di informazioni su queste mappe ?segrete?, contribuisce al fascino di questa importante carte, caposaldo di ogni collezione cartografica.

"Etching with engraving, without signature. Beautiful impression, printed on contemporary laid paper, showing the usual center fold, small spots, otherwise in excellent condition.The map belongs to the so-called atlases published by the Cartographic School of Cologne. For nearly half a century, Cologne was the most important mapmakers center in the XVI century, mainly due to Dutch and Flemish refugees fleeing religious persecution. Among the principal members of the School, include Quad Matthaeus, Johannes Metellus, Giovanni Botero and Frans Hogenberg, who was its founder. The atlases were often published anonymously or using pseudonyms precisely because of some political and religious problems that characterized the era. Jan Matal or Metellus, French-born Louvaine and is active in Cologne, where he took refuge just to escape persecution from the Catholic monarchs and where he died in 1597. He was one of the major cartographers of the time and, together with the Quad and Hogenberg itself as the leader of the Cologne school. Giovanni Botero (1544 - Turin 1617) was a priest, Italian philosopher and writer, author of universal relations, published a treatise on political geography for the first time in Rome in 1591 without cartographic illustrations. The work quickly became very important and studied throughout Europe, beginning almost to the study of demography. Andreas Lambert (active between 1590 and 1598) was primarily a publisher, however, some of the maps in its publications are attributed to himself, albeit in doubt. From the point of view cartographic maps are a derivation of the papers published by Abraham Ortelius in Antwerp, for the first time in 1570. The carving of the maps is attributed to Frans Hogenberg.The present work is taken by the German edition of the works of Giovanni Botero, Theatrum oder Shawspiegel, published in 1596 by Andreas Lambert, that same year also publishes the edition with Latin text. The great rarity of the works of the school of Cologne, together with the paucity of information on these maps ""secret"", contributes to the charm of this important works, the cornerstone of any collection mapping."

Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, consueta piega centrale, piccole ossidazioni, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione.La mappa, appartiene agli atlanti editi dalla cosiddetta Scuola Cartografica di Colonia. Per circa mezzo secolo, Colonia fu il centro più importante nella produzione cartografica cinquecentesca, dovuta principalmente a rifugiati fiamminghi ed olandesi che fuggivano dalle persecuzioni religiose. Tra i principali esponenti della Scuola, citiamo Matthaeus Quad, Johannes Metellus, Giovanni Botero e Frans Hogenberg, che ne fu il fondatore. Gli atlanti spesso venivano pubblicati in forma anonima o con l?utilizzo di alcuni pseudonimi proprio a causa dei problemi politici e religiosi che caratterizzavano il periodo storico. Jan Matal o Metellus, francese di nascita è attivo a Louvaine ed a Colonia, dove si rifugia proprio per sfuggire alle persecuzioni dei regnanti cattolici e dove muore nel 1597. Fu tra i maggiori cartografi del tempo e, insieme al Quad e al Hogenberg stesso, il principale esponente della scuola coloniese. Giovanni Botero (1544 ? Torino 1617) è stato un presbitero, scrittore e filosofo italiano, autore delle Relazioni universali, un trattato di geografia politica pubblicato per la prima volta a Roma nel 1591 senza illustrazioni cartografiche. L?opera divenne subito molto importante ed oggetto di studio in tutta Europa, dando inizio praticamente allo studio della demografia. Lambert Andreas (attivo tra il 1590 ed il 1598) fu principalmente editore, tuttavia, alcune delle mappe nelle sue pubblicazioni sono a lui stesso attribuite, sebbene in maniera dubitativa. Dal punto di vista cartografico le mappe sono una derivazione delle carte pubblicate ad Anversa da Abraham Ortelius, per la prima volta nel 1570. L?intaglio delle mappe viene attribuito a Frans Hogenberg. La carta che presentiamo è tratta dall?edizione tedesca delle opere di Giovanni Botero, denominata Theatrum oder Shawspiegel, edita nel 1596 da Lambert Andreas, che nello stesso anno pubblica anche l?edizione con testo latino. La grandissima rarità dell'opere della scuola di Colonia, insieme alla scarsità di informazioni su queste mappe ?segrete?, contribuisce al fascino di questa importante carte, caposaldo di ogni collezione cartografica.

Nel 1244, quando Luigi organizza la settima crociata, Joinville decide di seguire il suo Re ed unirsi ai Cavalieri Cristiani. Durante la crociata fu confidente e consigliere del Re. Le sue cronache costituiscono una importante testimonianza sulla figura di S. Luigi e sugli eventi della crociata, narrati con stile semplice ma ricco di dettagli umani e psicologici. La prima edizione di questa cronaca venne pubblicata nel 1547. Cfr. Brunet, III, 557.

        Les Quinze Ioyes de Mariage, Extraits d'un vieil exemplaire ecrit a la main, passez sont quatre cens ans.

      Rouen : Chez Raphael du petit Val, devant la grand porte du Palais. 1596 . Second 'de Rosset' Edition 12mo, A-H12, 186, [6] pp, printer's woodcut device on title, large woodcut on page 19, t-p and last leaf dust-soiled, a few leaves cut close at head, 19c. green calf a little rubbed. t.e.g., circular engraved armorial bookplate of Edward Grisbach on front pastedown. A libertine satire, thought to have been written early in the 15th century, providing a riotous critique of married women but also an important insight into the economic and social life of the period. The text first appears in two very rare incunable editions, Lyons c.1480 (of which ISTC locates copies at Paris BN and Poitiers BM), and Paris c. 1499 (located in 3 copies, Paris BN, Chantilly and Jena ULB). Sixteenth century editions are given by both Brunet and Tchemerzine as Paris undated, Lyon, C. Nourry 1520, Lyon, Arnoullet undated, all described as "fort rare", followed in 1595 by the first of innumerable editions of the text edited by Francois de Rosset.("... son texte est, aux jugement de M. Jannet, le meilleur de tous ceux qui ont paru avant 1853" - Brunet). After extensive electronic searches we are able to claim that all editions before the 18th century are very rare. Of the 16th and 17th century editions we have located no copy of any edition before 1596, 2 copies of the present edition (Exeter Cathedral and All Souls' Oxford), a copy of a 1607 edition in the British Library and a 1621 edition in the Bodleian Library, both of which are also held by the Austrian National Library. The next edition recorded is 1726, held by Princeton, Yale, UC Irvine, and Bryn Mawr. A 1734 edition is recorded at UCLA, U Cincinnati and National Library of Spain, but the earliest at Harvard and New York PL is the 1837 edition. Apparently an excessively rare text until rediscovered by Jannet in 1853, since which it has been constantly reprinted.

      Amsterdam: Cornelis Claesz 1596 - 1595 - 1596. 3 parts in one volume. Folio (11 6/8 x 7 1/8 inches). Gothic and roman type in double columns, four vignette title-pages: that for part 3 the twin-hemisphere world map by Jodocus Hondius (Shirley 182), engraved portrait of Linschoten, 34 double-page and/or folding engraved plates of views and two large maps of Goa and Angra dated 1595 by Johannes and Baptist van Deutecum after Linschoten (the plates bound out of order), 5 folding maps by Arnold and Hendrik van Langren, and a folding map of the world by Jan Baptist Vrient (Shirley 192), woodcut ornamental initials (some soiling and occasional minor staining, a few frayed edges, a few leaves lightly browned, scattered marginal dampstains, lacking conjugate leaf Cc2.5, a duplicate of conjugate leaf Cc1.6 bound in in its place, fol. B3 of part III with corner torn affecting pagination, small tears to center folds of the large folding plate between pp. 42 and 43 and of four of the maps, a few folds reinforced, a few minor marginal tears to the maps and the plates, the map of the coast of Africa (p. 24) defective: edges cropped with loss to border, repairs along 2 folds, one affecting the image and the text in cartouches, and probably supplied from a later edition). 17th-century speckled calf, spine in seven compartments with six raised bands, morocco lettering-piece in one (skillfully rebacked preserving the original spine, extremities scuffed). Provenance: Contemporary Dutch ownership inscription at the head of the title-page; Pierre S. du Pont III (1911-1988), Collection of Navigation. First edition of all three parts, and EXCEEDINGLY RARE. "This important work contains all the knowledge and learning related to the East and West Indies and navigations to those parts that was available at the end of the sixteenth century. It was held in such high esteem that for nearly a century a copy was given to each ship sailing to India as a guide to the sailing directions. The fact that most copies were in continual use is in no doubt the reason that FINE COPIES , EXPECIALLY WITH ALL CORRECT PLATES AND MAPS , ARE SO VERY RARE" (Hill). Linschoten travelled extensively, he went to Goa between 1583 and 1589, and joined Willem Barents's first and second voyages into the Kara Sea in 1594 and 1595, and he combined his first hand accounts with translations of original Spanish and Portuguese documents. "Linschoten's work, along with Hakluyt's, served as a direct stimulus to the building of the vast English and Dutch overseas empires" (Hill). Borba de Moraes [1983], pp. 486-7; Church 252; JCB 1 (II): pp. 344-45; "this very rare first edition" Sabin 41356. Purchased at Christie's 8th October 1991, lot 149.
