MANWOOD, John (d.1610)
London: Thomas Wight and Bonham Norton, 1598. Small 4to (180 x 132mm). Title within ornamental border, ornamental initials. 20th-century calf, spine lettered in gilt, marbled endpapers; (faint dampstaining at front, slightly browned). Ink stamps on title of Thomas Falconer, Esq., Lincoln's Inn and J.B. Martin. First Edition. Manwood was a barrister of Lincoln's Inn, gamekeeper of Waltham Forest, and Justice in Eyre of the New Forest under Elizabeth I of England. Manwood's first essay on forest law entitled A Brefe Collection of the Lawes of the Forrest was circulated privately in 1592. It was revised, enlarged, and published by Thomas Wight and Bonham Norton in 1598 as A Treatise and Discourse of the Lawes of the Forrest. This underwent numerous subsequent editions, most notably in that of 1615 by the Societie of Stationers, a version which included material from the Brefe Collection which was not included in the 1598 version. Manwood's book remains a standard reference on forest law through the mid-1900s. STC 17291. Very Good. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

BOCCACCIO Giovanni (BOCCACE Jean)

Auteur, titre et date dorées. Frottements. Exemplaire frais. Cette oeuvre de Boccace a été originellement écrite en latin, De casibus virorum illustrium, c'est à dire Les hommes illustres. Sous l'influence de Petrarque, Boccace revint au latin dans la dernière partie de son oeuvre (entre 1365 et 1366) et abandonna le toscan pour lequel il avait tant fait. C'est durant cette période qu'il compose des biographie et des traités tel que De genealogia deorum, qui rassemble pour la première fois toutes les notions mythologiques. L'ouvrage é été dédié à Cosimo de Medici. Ces hommes illustres font la part belle à l'Antiquité grecque et romaine (Les premières copies de l'Iliade et de l'Odyssée sont dues à Boccace, qui les fit venir de Grèce.) et à l'Ancien Testament. Parmi les personnages on remarque Agamemnon, Cadmus, Jocaste, Priam, Saul, Atalie, Xerxes, Alcibiade, Ciceron, Cleopâtre, Brunehilde. Certains portraits sont suivis d'une reflexion sur les abus de la tyrannie ou de la passion, de la richesse, ou autre excès. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] First Edition. Rare.

DRAKE, Francis]: Passe, Crispin van de, the Elder
1598. Engraved portrait, approximately 4½ x 6¼ inches. An excellent, sharp, crisp impression. Fine. In a blue half morocco slipcase. The very rare Crispin van de Passe portrait of Drake This rare portrait of Drake by Crispin van de Passe comes from an early volume of engraved portraits, Effigies Regum Ac Principum, Eorum Scillicet (Cologne, 1598). Drake, who circumnavigated the globe in 1577-1580, appears under the title "most noble English knight, very experienced in all things nautical and military." "The portrait of Drake is of especial interest: it is a close copy of the smaller Hondius Drake portrait which in its first state exists in only two copies (Royal Geographical Society, and Huntington Library). It depicts him in bust, with a shield, and with a two-hemisphere terrestrial map displaying the track of his circumnavigation" - Kraus. De Passe's stylized monograph appears near the bottom of the portrait. Epigrammatic verses in Latin by Matthias Quad appear beneath the portrait. Kraus, Drake 59; Sabin 58995; Graesse V:154; Brunet IV:414.

Frankfurt am Main, Palthen for heirs of Peter Fischer, 1598. The main work of Lemnius (1505-1568), Dutch physician and philosopher from Ziericksee in Zeeland, was often published and translated in the 16th and 17th centuries. It is, despite its title, mostly a medical and pharmaceutical compendium, offering advice on hygiene concerning all aspects of life, like living arrangements, food preparation, slaughtering, drinking water, wine, etc. Lemnius' views are not entirely free of superstition, but he still deserves to be regarded as the foremost hygienist of his century. He had studied medicine with Vesalius in Louvain, and was a friend of Dodonaeus and Conrad Gesner. - Somewhat browned thoughout, corner torn off p. 147/48 without text loss. - Wellcome 3704; Durling 2776; Rosenthal, Bibl.

First Edition of the English Translation of Aristotle’s Politics in which he discusses the theory of constitutions, oligarchy, democracy, commonwealth, and tyranny, the various powers of government, revolution and the means of preserving states, the different offices of the state, and the right form of constitution. "Aristotle is not only one of the great classical philosophers, the master of every branch of ancient knowledge: his method still underlies all modern thinking." (PMM) The Politics…may be compared with Adam Smith’s Wealth of Nations for its union of analytic theory with knowledge of historical and contemporary data. Aristotle had prepared descriptions of one hundred and fifty-eight ‘polities’ or constitutions (all now lost except one, the Constitution of Athens…)… Aristotle’s political principles have entered into the subsequent course of social thought. He taught that the state was natural and that man was naturally a political being. He taught that law was sovereign and that the magistrates were servants of the laws; he distinguished ‘normal’ forms of states from &# … [Click Below for Full Description]

LODEWIJCKSZ, Willem
Amsterdam: Corneille Nicolas, 1598. First French editions of both parts of this lavishly illustrated account of the two earliest Dutch voyages to the East Indies, coinciding with the creation of the Dutch East India Company and marking the birth of a new superpower in the East. The first book describes the 1595-1597 voyage led by Cornelis de Houtman through the eyes of one of the commissaries aboard the Mauritius who would later himself, as Admiral, conduct an expedition to Brazil. The second work chronicles the expedition of 1598-1600 under Neck and Warwijk, which brought the Dutch to the shores of Mauritius (which they named), Madagascar, the Moluccas, Java, Celebes, Banda and Ternate. This is the voyage that gave rise to the Dutch East India Company in 1602 and led to the concentration of Dutch colonial efforts on Java and the Spice Islands. Both works are illustrated with exquisite engravings depicting the flora and fauna of the Cape of Good Hope, Madagascar, and the East Indies, as well as “snapshots” of the different ethnicities and their customs: Chinese and Arab traders, Portuguese Eurasians with their slaves in tow, images of war ships and merchant vessels, scenes of Indian wife-burning and depictions of the Indonesian gamelan. The title of the first work shows a large engraved map of Africa and Asia, which is followed by further 23 engraved maps in the text. Other plates contain woodcut coastal profiles and anchorage diagrams. The work also includes reference to Brazil, the West Indies, and tobacco. Neck’s work includes an appendix giving the first … [Click Below for Full Description]

Contemp. brown morocco, both sides with the gilt-stamped supralibros of Jacques-Auguste de Thou, spine in 7 compartments, with gilt lettering and with his gilt monograms, outer edges gilt (discreet repairs to hinges). Hanau, Wilhelm Anton, 1598-99. A typical "Fürstenspiegel", a collection of the rights of rulers and princes, published by the first printer at Hanau. The author, Hippolyt von Colli (1561-1612), jurist and envoy to various European courts and countries, was born in Zurich to a Protestant Italian family. He was chancellor to Prince Christian I of Anhalt-Bernburg, to whom the first part of the work is dedicated, with the preface dated 1592. Befittingly, the present copy comes from the library of the greatest French book collector since Jean Grolier, Jacques- Auguste de Thou (1553-1617), famous historian and politician. He owned one of the most splendid libraries of his time. The supralibros show his coat of arms combined with the one of his second wife Gasparde de la Chastre, the first President of the Parliament of Paris, and their interlaced monograms, which are repeated on the spine. - Slight browning, more pronounced toward the end, otherwise fine. - VD 16 C 4585 (with date MDXCIX); on the binding cf.

Braun, Georg and Hogenberg, Franz
Braun & Hogenberg, 1598. Near fine, early color, latin edition (applicable text verso). Very decorative town plan of Toledo, Spain from this edition of the famous city atlas. Cherubim, palace, temple all present as separate images. These plans are well-known to collectors, and this particular item is increasingly uncommon. The full atlas was published in 6 volumes, in various editions, from 1572-1617. It was a collaborative work between many artists, engravers and cartographers (for a nice discussion of the history of this atlas, see Goss's THE MAPMAKERS ART, pp. 260-5). The map image measures 12.75x20 inches..

De Bry, Johann Theodor and Johann Israel:
Frankfurt. -1613. 1598 - Ten parts bound in three volumes. Collations below. Small folio. Contemporary calf, boards ruled and tooled in gilt, spines gilt, gilt morocco labels, raised bands. Boards lightly rubbed, hinges cracking but sound. Bookplates on front pastedowns, an occasional blindstamp (see below). A few plates shaved along the foredge. An occasional tanned leaf, but generally quite clean and neat internally. Very good. The Macclesfield set, with their armorial bookplate on the front pastedown of each volume, and an occasional small armorial blindstamp at the head of a titlepage, plate, or text leaf. A complete set of the first ten parts of the first Latin edition of the PETIT VOYAGES of De Bry, one of the grandest collections of voyages published in the Age of Discovery, with all of the hundreds of maps and plates, as detailed below. This series of voyages, devoted mainly (but not entirely) to the East Indies, was issued concurrently with the same publishers' GRAND VOYAGES, which are primarily devoted to the Americas. The present set is without parts XI and XII (the latter so rare that even Church lacked much of the text), and the appendix to Part I, also a legendary rarity. Both of these parts were issued by a different publisher in 1625 and 1628, long after the rest of the series. Almost all sets lack some plates and maps, and assembling complete copies has been a passion of collectors since the beginning of the collecting of voyages in the early 19th century. A number of the maps and plates are highly prized individually, which has contributed to parts being d … [Click Below for Full Description]

La encuadernación y las guardas son modernas, aproximadamente entre los años 1930 y 1950, aunque el pergamino utilizado creemos es muy antiguo, pareciendo sin duda la encuadernación de la época. Por error del impresor, los folios del 219 al 222 se numeraron por las dos caras como páginas, aunque en la ficha de la Biblioteca Nacional de Francia se indica 221 folios.

(BOCCACCIO (BOCCACE Giovanni Jean))
In Fiiorenza (Florence): Per Filippo Giunti, 1598. relié. In 8 (10,5x16,5). Edition originale. Rare. Impression Florentine en Italiques. Demi Basane noire milieu XIXe. Auteur, titre et date dorées. Frottements. Exemplaire frais. Cette oeuvre de Boccace a été originellement écrite en latin, De casibus virorum illustrium, c'est à dire Les hommes illustres. Sous l'influence de Petrarque, Boccace revint au latin dans la dernière partie de son oeuvre (entre 1365 et 1366) et abandonna le toscan pour lequel il avait tant fait. C'est durant cette période qu'il compose des biographie et des traités tel que De genealogia deorum, qui rassemble pour la première fois toutes les notions mythologiques. L'ouvrage é été dédié à Cosimo de Medici. Ces hommes illustres font la part belle à l'Antiquité grecque et romaine (Les premières copies de l'Iliade et de l'Odyssée sont dues à Boccace, qui les fit venir de Grèce.) et à l'Ancien Testament. Parmi les personnages on remarque Agamemnon, Cadmus, Jocaste, Priam, Saul, Atalie, Xerxes, Alcibiade, Ciceron, Cleopâtre, Brunehilde... Certains portraits sont suivis d'une reflexion sur les abus de la tyrannie ou de la passion, de la richesse, ou autre excès. - Per Filippo Giunti, In Fiiorenza (Florence) _1598, In 8 (10,5x16,5), (32) 828pp. (50), relié. - relié
