Nineteenth century red morocco, elaborately and handsomely tooled in gilt on the boards and spine, gilt leather label, a.e.g. Bookplate on front pastedown and front free endpaper. Titlepage backed. Two small holes in leaf Nn3, not affecting text, small tear repaired in leaf Nn, not affecting text. Some light staining or creasing to text leaves. A very good handsome copy. A primary account of the Conquest of Mexico The second English edition of one of the most important early chronicles of the Spanish conquest of the New World, and one of the two chief accounts of Cortes' conquest of Mexico, the other being provided by Bernal Diaz. This is a reissue of the first English edition of 1578, and one of the handful of English works about the New World to appear in the 16th century. Lopez de Gomara was Cortes' secretary for a number of years, and made use of his unparalleled opportunity to gather information from the primary source relating to the extraordinary exploits surrounding the overthrow of the Aztec empire. "Contains the first printed accounts of the Cortes expeditions to California, the expeditions of Francisco Ulloa, Marcos de Niza, Coronado, the subsidiary expeditions resulting from the last, and the voyage of Cabrillo" - Wagner. The work was first published in Zaragosa in 1552, and quickly went through a number of editions in Spain, Italy, and the Low Countries. The English translation was prepared by Thomas Nicholas, who abridged the original. This second edition is a virtual line-for-line reprint of the 1578 edition. … [Click Below for Full Description]

BAUHIN, Caspar (Casparo Bauhino) [Bauhinus]
Basle: Per Sebastianum Henricpetri, 1596.. Small quarto, pp (22), 669, (9), woodcut vignette to t.p., woodcut portrait, woodcut colophon, various small woodcut initials, title page slightly tender at the margins, and lacking the top corner, though no loss of print, pages browned at margins, but otherwise in remarkably good condition. [Bound with] Icones Plantarum aliqvot hactensis. I page of text, 8 woodcut plates of plants. Contemporary vellum a little marked, and with slight loss towards the base of the spine, Greek title, author and date in ink in probably a Victorian hand on spine, [the date is incorrect by five years], a very early ink inscription on the front endpaper which also carries a modern bookplate lightly attached. [RARE. Although not containing the fine woodcuts of the later work, this preceedes the Pinax by 27 years and is a remarkable foreshadowing of the binomial system - Bauhin states in the preface that, for the sake of clearness, he has applied one name to each plant, and added also some easily recognisable character. This has led many commentators to describe him as the founder of the natural system. Overall a remarkably good copy of an extremely scarce work] .

Ce grand traité de chirurgie classique 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 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), l'ensemble gravé sur bois.

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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Raleigh, Walter:
London: Robert Robinson, 1596.. [16],112pp. 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Marca de anterior poseedor. * Natale Conti (Milán, c. 1520-1582) fue un gran estudioso de la mitología antigua, griega y egipcia. Esta obra es la más famosa y sirvió de referencia para la mayoría de artistas y poetas del Renacimiento en toda Europa. Creía que en las fábulas mitológicas se encerraban las verdades de las ciencias y la filosofía, y que los sabios habían escogido esta forma para facilitar su divulgación. Por este motivo realizó la clasificación de los mitos según su contenido. En el siglo XIX, Conti se consideró como el precursor de la escuela simbolista en el campo de la historia de las religiones (Jung, Eliade, Cassirer pertenencen a esta corriente hermenéutica que considera el mito como una intuición esencial del mundo). Esta edición, además, contiene el De Venatione, texto dedicado a la caza, y la Mitología de las musas del naturalista francés Geoffroy Linocier. Mitología. Iconología.

Linschoten, Jan Huygen van:
[Amsterdam: Cornelis Claesz, ca. -1604]. 1596 - 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' … [Click Below for Full Description]
