A copy text of the first English edition of Linschoten's classic, the most important description of the East Indies in the Age of Discovery, translated from the first Dutch edition of 1596. Linschoten travelled to Goa in 1583 as a clerk to the Portuguese Archbishop of Goa, and remained there for six years. While in India he also served the Archbishop of Goa. Returning to Holland in 1592, he prepared his notes for the Amsterdam publisher, Claeszoon, in response to interest in 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 ITINERARIO, VOYAGE, OFTE SCHIPVAERT 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.

[Drake, Francis]: Passe, Crispin van de, the Elder:
[Cologne. 1598].. Engraved portrait, approximately 4 1/2 x 6 1/4 inches. An excellent, sharp, crisp impression. Fine. In a blue half morocco slipcase. 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 1577-80, 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.

RUSCELLI, Girolamo.
Venice: , c 1598. Size: 220 x 315 mm. Copperplate engraving. Map has been professionally cleaned. Good condition. Latin text. Ruscelli was an editor in Venice, who translated Ptolemy's 'Geographia' in to Italian. Maps were based on Gastaldi's earlier works of 1548 and then published as 'La Geographia di Claudio Tolomeo...'. The atlas ran to a number of editions. This map is from one of the later editions, as it displays slight signs of plate wear. This is a fascinating early map of the Arabian Peninsula.

PTOLEMAEUS, Claudius (after 83 - ca 168 AD) - CERNOTI, Lorenzo.
Venice: Gio.Battista & Giorgio Galignani Fratelli, 1598 - 1597. - 2 parts in one volume. 4to., bound in 6s (12 x 8 4/8 inches). Two vignette title-pages. One full-page engraved double-hemisphere map of the world "Orbis Terrae Compendiosa Descriptio" by Girolamo Porro after Rumold Mercator to D1v, and 63 fine engraved half-page vignette maps, numerous woodcut diagrams and vignettes in text including two of the armillary sphere and woodcut initials. Contemporary limp vellum (torn without loss at the head of the spine). Provenance: early notes to the front free endpaper. First edition in Italian, edited and corrected by Giovanni Antonio Magini and translated from his Latin edition of 1596, also printed in Venice, into Italian by Leonardo Cernoti. All the maps, 27 of the ancient world, and 36 of the modern world were first published in Magini's earlier Latin edition, except for Girolamo Porro's four small format world maps based on Valgrisi's 1561 edition. The double-hemisphere world map "Orbis Terrae Compendiosa Descriptio" is a reduction of Rumold Mercator's world map, and is described by Shirley as 'an exceptionally fine engraving in its own right'. The other three are after Mercator and Ortelius, each and the map of America in chapter XXXIIII (18 pges), show Chili with a distinctive bulge. Ptolemy's Geography, arguably the most influential cartographic account of the ancient world, was the point of reference for all Renaissance mapmakers.

LINSCHOTEN, Jan Huyghen
John Wolfe, [1598]., London, - Engraved map extending from the Horn of Africa to Sumatra by way of Arabia and the Indian sub-continent, backed with fine tissue, tear to left part of map skilfully repaired. Linschoten's work was a significant advance in the mapping of India and the Middle East. As noted by Tibbetts, the surprising fact about the representation of the (Arabian) peninsula is the close resemblance of the outline to that of a modern map when compared with other engraved maps of the time. Linschoten's maps are styled after Portuguese portolan charts of the 16th century, upon which the map is based. Linschoten acquired most of the information for the map while serving as the secretary to the Portuguese archbishop in Goa, India from 1583 to 1589. Of particular value were the sailing guides he obtained that not only provided the best sailing routes to the East Indies and its lucrative spice trade but also showed the way from port to port once there. Upon his return to the Netherlands, Linschoten published these documents with accompanying maps and his own descriptions of the area in his monumental Itinerario. Few books have had greater influence on historical events. Tibbets 46.

Pigafetta, Filippo:
Francofurti [Frankfurt]: Excudebat Wolffgangus Richter, impensis Io. Theo. & Io. Israel. de Bry, 1598. Folio. pp. [viii], 60, [vi] index, [ii] blank; ff. [i] divisional title, 14, + two (of four) folding copper engraved maps. Engraved title page by Joannes Theodore de Bry followed by dedication to Friedrich IV, Elector Palatine of the Rhine, with his engraved coat of arms, and with 14 plates in the letterpress in the second part. Early twentieth-century olive morocco by W.Pratt, gilt, spine sunned, a.e.g. Book-label of American bibliophile John Jay Paul dated 1912. The text follows the account of Portuguese traveller Duarte Lopes, a merchant active in Kongo in the late 1570s and early 1580s, who was sent by Kongo’s Catholic King Álvaro I as an emissary to the Pope. In Rome he encountered Italian humanist Filippo Pigafetta who published Lopes’ narrative in 1591 under the title: ‘Relatione del reame di Congo et delle circonvicine contrade’, later translated into Latin by Casiodoro de Reina. The de Bry edition, the first volume in the series of ‘Petits Voyages’ published by the de Bry brothers following the death of their father, Theodore senior, usually contains two maps in four sheets. The sheets showing southern and eastern Africa, often joined, are present; the sheets depicting western Africa are not present in our example. The map is significant, rejecting Ptolemy’s twin lakes of Zaire and Zaflan and his snow-capped Mountains of the Moon as the source of the Nile.

Adrien de Montigny for the Album de Croy
“Chaivieve” 1596-1598 Watercolor on vellum 26” x 21” framed In 1580, Charles de Croy married Marie de Brimeu, the widow of another nobleman who had domains in Artois and Picardy, as well as Orchimont and Agimont. In the same year his parents, Phillipe the third Duke of Croy, and Jeanne, dame des Comines and de Hallium, gave him the principality of Chimay and the princely title that went with it. Upon their deaths in 1595 and 1581 respectively, he inherited more titles and land, most of it in Flanders in present-day Belgium. By 1595, it had become clearer that the management of his vast holdings required a high degree of administrative organization, and towards this end Charles engaged his court painter, Adrien de Montigny, of Valenciennes, to paint careful studies of the many castles, towns and estates he ruled. These splendid watercolors were the fruit of this enormous undertaking, executed between 1596 and 1598. Charles separated from Marie in 1584 and she regained her lands in 1599. These works were executed at the pinnacle of Charles power in terms of wealth and land ownership. Despite the impetus for their creation having come from administrative needs, they are sumptuously rendered, pristine watercolors of outstanding esthetic quality, clearly intended from their inception to be works of art above and beyond their documentary function. The borders are of different types, the simplest being black with gold or silver ornament, others having architectural details embellished with flowers and fruit and yet others with a neutral background against which are placed birds, i … [Click Below for Full Description]

ORTELIUS, Abraham
Antwerp: Abraham Ortelius, 1598. unbound. very good. Map. Engraving with hand coloring. Image measures 13 1/2" x 19 1/2" This influential 1598 map by Abraham Ortelius is the first engraved exclusive map of the Pacific Ocean. Emphasizing the growing importance of the region in expanding colonial trade, the map presents the Pacific Ocean based on the works of Frans Hogenberg, Mercator's World map from 1569 as well as the manuscripts of Bartomeo de Lasso. Ortelius pays fitting tribute to the voyages of Ferdinand Magellan, who, on a mission to find a route to the 'Spice Islands', became the first European to cross the Pacific and discover what is now known as the Strait of Magellan. Several interesting features appearing in this map relate to this historic voyage. The Pacific Ocean, previously known by the name 'Mar del Zur' or 'South Sea' was first called 'Mar Pacifico' by Magellan during his 1519 circumnavigation of the world when after sailing through the stormy seas off Cape Horn, the expedition finally found peaceful waters upon entering the waters of the Pacific. The map includes a large illustration of the ship 'Victoria', one of the five ships in Magellan's fleet, and the first to successfully circumnavigate the world. The Victoria can be seen here firing a salute fore and aft to commemorate its emergence from the perilous Strait - which now bears Magellan's name - that separates the Atlantic from the Pacific. A notation below the ship reads, "I was the first to sail around the world by means of sails, and carried you, Magellan, leader, first through the straits. I sail … [Click Below for Full Description]

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]

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.

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.

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.
