Strieder XVII [1819] s. v.). Die frühesten Einträge dürften wohl alle aus Stadthagen stammen; unter diesen scheinen auf der dreizehnjährige (und bereits 1601 verstorbene) Graf Julius zu Holstein-Schaumburg sowie die im Weserland begüterte Familie von Klencke, deren Mitglieder Ludolf, Wilken und Theodor sich mit lateinischen Sentenzen und einem ganzseitigen Wappen eintragen; außerdem Heinrich Henekius, 1583-1617 Stiftspfarrer von Obernkirchen, und Johann von Berinchusen (Berninghausen), später Rektor zu Helmstedt. Die Einträge des Jahres 1599, zumeist in Hannover oder Helmstedt entstanden, stammen u. a. von den Medizinern Jakob Horstius (1537-1600), seit 1584 Professor in Helmstedt, und seinem Sohn Heinrich Adolf (1569-1632), später Stadtphysikus zu Torgau.

CHAUCER, GEOFFREY
London: Adam Islip. 5th Edition or later Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. First Speght edition of Chaucer: "the significance of this edition cannot be overstated." Complete with the rare copper-plate portrait of "The Progenie of Geffrey Chaucer" by John Speed after Hoccleve, the first engraved portrait of Chaucer. "The primary biography of Chaucer in the Renaissance was composed by Thomas Speght for his Workes of our Antient and Lerned English Poet, Geffrey Chaucer (1598). The significance of this edition cannot be overstated, because Speght's Workes would prove to be the definitive text of Chaucer until well into the eighteenth century, used by such notables as Milton and Dryden. Indeed, Speght's edition marks a watershed in Chaucerian reception, as does his biography--the first written in English, and the most extensive and careful to date. As Tim Machan has noted, Speght's edition articulates a momentous, 'distinctly Renaissance' outlook on Chaucer and his works, which valorizes the poet and his importance for English literary and cultural history" (Gust, Constructing Chaucer: Author and Autofiction in the Critical Tradition). Edited by Thomas Speght and assisted by John Stowe, Francis Thynne, Francis Beaumont (the elder) and Robert Glover. Notable for the introduction of the glossary, it was the most recent Chaucer edition available during the period when Shakespeare was adapting Chaucer's Troilus to create Troilus and Cressida(1601-2). There are various settings of the title, some with a different woodcut border, and with slightly different imprin … [Click Below for Full Description]

London, 1598. One of the rarest projections of South America, as well as one of the most famous ones. 1598. London. John Wolfe. 530 mm x 395 mm.Rare English edition of Jan Huygen van Linschoten's spectacular map of South America, the Caribbean, Florida and the Gulf Coast, along with a marvelous treatment of the unknown southern continent, engraved in London by Robert Beckit, for John Wolfe's English edition of Linschoten's Itinerario, first published in 1598.This is one of the most striking and decorative maps of South America and is an important early record of the continent. The map is oriented with north to the right and includes Florida and the Gulf Coast (over 20 place names shown), and the Caribbean. The Straits of Magellan are depicted, with Terra del Fuego shown as a part of the great southern landmass. The coastlines are well defined and densely engraved with place names while the interior is filled with fictional mountains, rivers and vignettes of Patagonian giants, Brazilian cannibals and numerous strange animals including a lion-like creature with a striped tail and human face. Other embellishments include large elaborate cartouches, sea monsters, galleons and a beautiful compass rose. Wolfe's edition of the map is relatively similar to the original, although Wolfe adds a new title cartouche in English and some new mountains along the Gulf Coast of North America, which do not appear on Linschoten's map.Linschoten was "one of the pathfinders for the first Dutch voyages to the East" (Schilder, p. 195).

Andrew Baxter, (1687/8-1750), Scottish natural philosopher and metaphysician. It was during Baxter's time as tutor for the Hays at Duns Castle, between 1719-24 and presumably when this volume was inscribed, that Baxter corresponded with Henry Home on Newtonian laws of motion. His later works on metaphysics, An Enquiry into the Nature of the Human Soul (London, 1733) and astronomy, Matho (London, 1738) secured his position as a leading exponent of Newtonian philosophies.

La tercera obra, "Saturnalium sermonum" trata de las fiestas romanas llamadas saturnales y en concreto, de las luchas de gladiadores.
