Metellus, J.N. [Antarctic Map]
Cologne, 1598. Extremely rare and early map of the Southern Hemisphere that attempts to define the assumed Great South land mass, including today's Australia, Antarctica, Indonesia, South Africa & Argentina. The top of the map has an interesting Mercator projection of Patagonia achingly close to a large land mass "Terrae Australis Pars". C. Della Victoria and the illustration of Magellan's ship the Victoria bears witness to his discovery of the strait that now bears his name. Below is a polar projection of a great south land entitled "Terra Australis". Within the Antarctic Circle, termed "Terra Incognitia" is an array of mountains and 3 large named rivers. Part of the coast (actually the north coast of Australia) is marked with Marco Polo's kingdoms of Beach, Lucach and Maletur. This is a German re-engraving of the Wytfliet Map dated 1597 (Spence 3010), but is much rare than it (see discussion below). German text on the verso with the header "Chica" above one page. The Quad map of a year later (Spence 3011) included the addition of "Fretum Magellanicum" at the Straights.

[AUTOGRAPH]. TROMP, Maarten Harpertsz.
Autograph letter by the legendary Admiral Maarten Harpertz. Tromp (1598-1653), commander of the Dutch fleet, written on his ship De Maecht van Dort (The Maid of Dordrecht) in the English Channel near Mardijck, near Dunkirk (the Spanish had built a fort at Mardijk in 1620, demolished 1655) and addressed to the Dutch Admiralty at "Middelburg or Rotterdam" (it apparently went to Middelburg). The body of the letter contains only 10 lines but contains valuable information about Tromp's naval activities, informing the Admiralty that with the bearer of the letter he is sending them ten English ships and their captains that Tromp had captured, following the instructions sent to him on 9 July. He asks the Admiralty to take them and dispose of them as they see fit. He also asks them to send the bearer back to him immediately, as they need him urgently and the tides cannot wait. In very good condition.

HAKLUYT, Richard
London: George Bishop, 1598 -, 1600. Three volumes in two, folio, woodcut historiated and decorative initials and head- and tail-pieces; a little staining or dust-soiling, last leaf of the first volume the worst affected; small hole through text on penultimate leaf in the same volume; a most attractive set in early 19th-century English blue straight-grain morocco, spines panelled in gilt between raised bands incorporating anchor devices, sides panelled in blind and gilt, all edges gilt, rose-pink silk flyleaves and doublures within blue morocco outer borders; a really handsome set. The classic Elizabethan collection of voyage accounts. One of the classics of travel literature and the first English collection of voyages; Hakluyt's collection will always be the primary source for the history of early English exploration, as well as one of the gems of Elizabethan letters. Hakluyt himself was the first lecturer on modern geography and one of the leading spirits of Elizabethan maritime expansion (PMM). The work is devoted to American discoveries and the British colonisation of America, and although published a few years before the Dutch voyage of the Duyfken to the west coast of Cape York in 1605, it is significant that by the time of this revised second edition, Hakluyt was able to include the first tentative forays of the English into the South Seas, whether round Cape Horn or through the Straits of Magellan. As a result, Hakluyt's book represents the pinnacle of Elizabethan geography, but is also among the earliest published works on British expansion into the Pacific … [Click Below for Full Description]

PTOLEMAEUS, Claudio
Venice: heirs of Melchior Sessa, 1598-, 1599. Three parts in one volume, quarto, with 69 double-page engraved maps, and several woodcut diagrams, early owner's name at foot of title-page; a couple of small wormholes in lower margins clear of text, some occasional light toning and spotting; contemporary limp vellum, titled in ink on the spine, a good copy with generous margins. The classical atlas with modern maps. Classic sixteenth-century edition of the great work of the classical geographer Ptolemy, updated with "modern" maps showing Renaissance discoveries and new geographical concepts. The atlas is notable for its detailed mapping of the Americas, but also for four maps which demonstrate in some detail contemporary perceptions of a southern continent, and which are notable for the enormous, if largely spurious, advances that had been made from the 1574 edition of the same work (see previous item). The double-hemisphere world map which begins the second, "modern", part of the Atlas was, when Ruscelli first produced it in 1561, the first such map to appear in an Atlas (Shirley, 110). However it showed no southern continent at all, whereas by the time of its revision for this edition a massive continent has been added, with the legend "Hanc continentem Australem nonnulli Magellanica regionem ab eius inventore noncupant… Terra Australis". A large New Guinea is shown at the extreme left while at the right there are islands of the East Indies that did not appear in the earlier version.

EUCLID / Ed. HARDY, Claude.
Very rare <i>editio princeps</i> of this important text by Euclid, his only work in pure geometry, other than the <i>Elements</i>, to have survived in Greek. It is here accompanied by a commentary, or rather an introduction, by Marinus of Naples (5th century AD), the pupil and biographer of Proclus. Although the importance of the first printing of any Euclidean text goes without saying, the work is of particular interest given contemporary developments in French geometry - Descartes, Mersenne, Fermat, etc., to whose circle the translator Claude Hardy belonged.<br/><br/> "The <i>Data</i> ... is closely connected with books I-VI of the <i>Elements</i>. It is concerned with the different senses in which things are said to be given. Thus areas, straight lines, angles, and ratios are said to be "given in magnitude" when we can make others equal to them. Rectilineal figures are "given in species" or "given in form" when their angles and the ratio of their sides are given. Points, lines, and angles are "given in position" when they always occupy the same place, and so on. After the definitions there follow ninety-four propositions, in which the object is to prove that if certain elements of a figure are given, other elements are also given in one of the defined senses" (<i>DSB</i> IV.524).<br/><br/> The most interesting propositions are a group of four which are exercises in geometrical algebra corresponding to <i>Elements</i> 11.28, 29. Proposition 58 reads: "If a given area be applied to a given straight line so as to be deficient by a figure given in form, the breadths of the d … [Click Below for Full Description]

LINSCHOTEN, Jan Huyghen van
London: John Wolfe, 1598. Small folio, with a total of 39 folding maps and plates, comprising the 12 required for this edition and an additional 27 plates from the original Dutch edition, with a further four small maps in the text; early shoulder-notes in ink throughout, many of them corresponding with a page of subject index in manuscript in the same early hand bound in at the end of the volume to follow the printed index; a few spots and marks, some restoration at margins; just three maps cut close by binder at left margin; overall a very good copy in contemporary calf, gilt spine rubbed, brown leather label. One of the great early illustrated travel books. One of the great early illustrated travel books: the rare and important first edition in English of the major source for any history of voyaging to the East Indies, and inevitably towards Australia. The most significant description of the East Indies in the Age of Discovery, this was essentially the work which launched full-scale trade to Asia by the Dutch and the English. Together with Richard Hakluyt's anthology, it was also the most important collection of voyages and travels in English to appear during the 16th century. It was in fact the suggestion of the great English voyage chronicler Hakluyt himself that led to the publication of this English translation, based on the Dutch edition of 1596. Like many voyage observers, Linschoten had started out as a reporting employee of one of the great trading or financial houses, in this case the house of Fugger, the Augsburg-based bankers who dominated the finances of s … [Click Below for Full Description]

GALLUCCI, Giovanni Paolo
Venice: Ruberto Meietti, 1598. Quarto, engraved title with instruments, a folding plate, numerous woodcuts in the text, and three plates with working volvelles (those on pp. 149 and 150 showing the upper and lower part of the hemisphere, and the one on p. 153, with one fixed and three movable parts, showing the upper part of the globe as seen from the latitude of Venice); two gatherings slightly toned, 18th-century half calf, patterned paper sides, some minor wear to lower board, endpapers sympathetically replaced at some date. Early treatise on navigational instruments, with working volvelles. First edition of this very scarce book, a 'handsome treatise on the fabrication and use of astronomical and navigational instruments…' (Shirley). Gallucci's comprehensive summary of the state of contemporary knowledge of astronomy, cosmography and mathematics, is particularly concerned with the use of scientific instruments. The fine woodcut illustrations include three working volvelles with moving parts, one of which depicts a complete southern hemisphere, with a scattering of islands in the location of Australia. Gallucci discusses the works of Apianus, Gemma Frisius, Stoeffler, Oronce Fine, Scarani and Santbech, and details Rojas's Planisferum, and many of his inventions like the Hemisphero uranico, the nautical quadrant, and the armillary astrolabe. For some of the instruments this is the only description available.

Antwerp: Plantin, 1598. Engraved map, 350 x 495 mm., original hand-colouring, fine and framed. A famous Ortelius map. One of the earliest maps of South East Asia: part of 'Terra Australis Incognita' is shown emerging from the south.

Although the Dutch did not start serious exploration in the Indies until 1595, the accuracy of this map is testimony to Ortelius's knowledge of secret Portuguese and Spanish information, usually impossible to extract for outsiders. The northern tip of "pars continentis Australis" which is shown emerging just below Java is named "Beach" - this name appears in a number of maps and resulted from information supposedly given to Marco Polo: 'placing these countries beyond Java is the result of a misinterpretation of Marco Polo's description of them. Both Beach and Locach are names resulting from copyists' corruptions of Polo's Locac (Locac-Locach-Boeach-Beach) actually Indo-China' (Perry, The Discovery of Australia, p. 22). The present map was published the same year as Ortelius' death in 1598. Any sixte … [Click Below for Full Description]
