        Opera omnia, exegetica, didactica, et polemica ... Cum indicibus necessariis.

      Only edition, second issue, of volumes eight and nine from the series Bibliotheca fratrum polonorum. Exegetist Johann Ludwig von Wolzogen (ca. 1599-1658) was an Austrian nobleman who became a prominent voice among the Polish Brethren called Unitarians, proponents of Socinianism and the Radical Reformation that denied the Holy Trinity based on rational exegesis of Scripture. Their collected writings, the => first and most important collection of Socinian documents, were clandestinely published ca. 1665-92 in ten volumes with => false imprints to evade censors. Like the rest of the series, these two volumes of Von Wolzogen's exegetical, didactical, and polemical works are imprinted with the date 1656, without a publisher; however it is known they were published in Amsterdam by Frans Kuyper (1629-91) and Daniel Bakkamude (1662-85), perhaps with Hendrick Boom (1657-1709), whose monogrammed printer's device appears on some of the sectional title-pages. Kuyper, a former minister, produced only Socinian works in the decade 1663-73. The first volume contains exegesis of the Gospels Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, and the second, commentary on the Acts and the epistles of Paul, Jacob, and Jude, with contributions from Wissowatius, Crellius, and Schlichtingius. The text, in Latin, printed in roman and italic, is punctuated with handsome woodcut initials, tailpieces, and woodcut devices on the sectional titles, as above.

        [in Greek, transliterated as] Sibulliskoi chrësmoi, [then in roman] hoc est Sybillina oracula.

      Paris: No publisher/printer [Compagnie de la Grand' Navire] 8vo (19.2 cm, 7.6"). [8] ff., 524 pp.; 71, [3] pp.. 1599 Fame? Misfortune? Wealth? Life? Death? The Sibylline Oracles knew all, but understanding their pronouncements was not always easy. The efforts of scholar Onofrio Panvinio (1529–68), translator Sebastien Castellion (1515–63), and editor Johannes Opsopäus (1556–96) are brought together here and are supplemented by => twelve finely engraved portraits of "the oracles" by Karel van Mallery (1571–ca. 1635). The pronouncements are here in the original Greek, with Latin translation (including sidenotes) on the facing page. These are enhanced by Panvinio's study of the Oracles, extensive elogia (testimonies by the ancient authors Plato, Ovid, Aristoteles . . . ), and Mallery's engravings of the sibyls, all preceding the actual printing of the prophecies with notes and supplemental material by Opsopäus. The volume begins with a most handsome emblematic engraved title-page signed by Mallery involving a ship at sea against a sky labeled "Lutetia" (for Paris) surmounting an elaborate architectural frame containing the title and incorporating elegant symbolic ladies and more, followed on the next leaves by a dedication to the esteemed French collector Jacques-Auguste de Thou (Thuanus, 1553–1617). Beautiful floriated woodcut initials, factotum initials, head- and tailpieces decorate the text, which is an => exquisite example of printing, using Claude Garamont's grecs du roi. It seems that there were related texts printed at the same time that are sometimes found bound with this in a variety of combinations, but not universally so. Period-style full dark brown mottled calf tooled in blind, gilt title and tools to spine, red edges. Small hole from natural flaw in upper corner of title-page and one other leaf; oval-shaped spot in lower margin of title-page from an erasure (?), offset onto the front fly-leaf; light age-toning and occasional foxing in some margins, with a few stray ink marks from printing and maybe two or three dots from oxidization of the paper. Accounting for these minor expectable flaws, the present volume is => really very, very nice and the portraits are => terrific.

        The Bible, that is, the holy Scriptures conteined in the Olde and Newe Testament, translated according to the Ebrew and Greeke, and conferred with the best translations in diuers languages. With most profitable annotations vpon all the hard places, and other things of great importance.

      At least five editions appeared with this 1599 imprint, almost none of which were actually printed that year. Darlow and Moule note, "The phenomena of the various editions described under the year 1599 . . . constitute one of the most curious problems in the bibliography of the English Bible." Clearly there was a demand (by English Puritans and by Pilgrims in the Low Countries and America, among others) for Geneva Bibles, with their strongly Protestant marginal notes, well after they could no longer be printed openly in London. Pocock is of the opinion that recognizing this, Robert Barker "adopted" various early-17th-century Amsterdam and Dort Genevas; the back-dating and "back-attributing" on their title-pages would have associated these with and effectively disguised them as a popular and approved Bible printed by his own father, who died in that year and whose press he took over in the year following. STC attributes the whole array of editions purely to Stam in Amsterdam, who as publisher also would have benefitted from the fame and innocuousness in England of Christopher Barker's actual 1599 edition, though he would have had no reason in Dutch law for disguise. The text at hand here is the Geneva version (as usual, without the Apocrypha), with Tomson's revised New Testament and Junius's Revelation -- but this copy thoroughly muddies the waters with a title-page supplied from another copy, possibly even the genuine 1599 printing. The New Testament title-page also gives 1599 (as does the colophon), but is original to the present copy. The woodcut title-page border (repeated for the New Testament's separate title-page) is the classic depiction of the Twelve Tribes of Israel in panels on the left and the Twelve Apostles on the right, with rondelles of the Four Evangelists. The text is illustrated with woodcuts of Noah's Ark, the crossing of the Red Sea, the artifacts associated with the Tabernacle and the Temple, the vision of Ezekiel, etc., along with maps of the suggested location of the Garden of Eden, the Israelites' wanderings in the wilderness, and the Holy Land. Binding: Early 19th-century signed binding by Hering (stamped on front free endpaper): oxblood morocco framed and panelled in gilt triple fillets, spine with gilt-stamped title and dateline and gilt-ruled compartments, turn-ins with gilt roll. All edges gilt. Hering, one of the most prominent London binders of his period, was spoken of by Timperley as => "the head of the craft" at that time. Provenance: Laid-in letter from a London bookseller to Pennsylvania collector John S. Cochran of Lancaster, dated 1948, optimistically but incorrectly affirming this to be "the earliest of many editions of this date."

      Paris: No publisher/printer [Compagnie de la Grand' Navire] 8vo (19.2 cm, 7.6"). [8] ff., 524 pp.; 71, [3] pp.. 1599 Fame? Misfortune? Wealth? Life? Death? The Sibylline Oracles knew all, but understanding their pronouncements was not always easy. The efforts of scholar Onofrio Panvinio (1529?-68), translator Sebastien Castellion (1515?-63), and editor Johannes Opsopäus (1556?-96) are brought together here and are supplemented by => twelve finely engraved portraits of "the oracles" by Karel van Mallery (1571?-ca. 1635). The pronouncements are here in the original Greek, with Latin translation (including sidenotes) on the facing page. These are enhanced by Panvinio's study of the Oracles, extensive elogia (testimonies by the ancient authors Plato, Ovid, Aristoteles . . . ), and Mallery's engravings of the sibyls, all preceding the actual printing of the prophecies with notes and supplemental material by Opsopäus. The volume begins with a most handsome emblematic engraved title-page signed by Mallery involving a ship at sea against a sky labeled "Lutetia" (for Paris) surmounting an elaborate architectural frame containing the title and incorporating elegant symbolic ladies and more, followed on the next leaves by a dedication to the esteemed French collector Jacques-Auguste de Thou (Thuanus, 1553?-1617). Beautiful floriated woodcut initials, factotum initials, head- and tailpieces decorate the text, which is an => exquisite example of printing, using Claude Garamont's grecs du roi. It seems that there were related texts printed at the same time that are sometimes found bound with this in a variety of combinations, but not universally so. Period-style full dark brown mottled calf tooled in blind, gilt title and tools to spine, red edges. Small hole from natural flaw in upper corner of title-page and one other leaf; oval-shaped spot in lower margin of title-page from an erasure (?), offset onto the front fly-leaf; light age-toning and occasional foxing in some margins, with a few stray ink marks from printing and maybe two or three dots from oxidization of the paper. Accounting for these minor expectable flaws, the present volume is => really very, very nice and the portraits are => terrific.

        Navigatio ac Itinerarium Iohannis Hugonis Linscotani in Orientalem siue Lusitanorum Indiam

      The Hague: Henricszoon & Elsevier, 1599. Title page a bit dusted and stained with early manuscript ownership dated 1600 crossed out; one plate significantly ink stained (native maidens of Goa facing p. 50) and seven other plates water-stained; some old but faithful paper repairs to folds of the Plancius world map; top and bottom margins of the Spice Islands map roughly cropped with some loss of the decorative border, and the birds-eye view of Goa is tender at the folds. Overall a very good copy of a book that saw much practical use, in an attractive later eighteenth-century French binding.. Folio, with 36 plates (all double-page or folding) and seven large maps; attractive mid-eighteenth-century French full speckled calf with raised bands and gilt compartments, original gilt label; manuscript inscription to front endpaper dated 1839 indicating provenance from the library of Paris parliamentarian Monsieur Mathieu. One of the most important books relating to early trade with Asia and the East Indies and a masterpiece of cartographic printing, Linschoten's Itinerario was translated into numerous languages and carried by merchant traders plying eastern seas for over a century. Few books can equal the geopolitical impact of this one, widely credited with initiating aggressive Dutch and English mercantile expansion into East Asia at the expense of the Portuguese. This copy is an attractive example of the first Latin edition of 1599, complete with the full suite of 36 plates and six maps prepared for the earlier Dutch edition of 1596, and an additional map of the North Sea and polar regions, and including the famous map of the Spice Islands.The first part of his book gives a general description of the various countries of the far East, with accounts of customs, spices, costumes, modes of travel, and so forth, all wonderfully illustrated with engraved plates, panoramas and folding town plans. The second part is separately paginated and titled Descriptio totius Guineae tractus... It includes information gleaned from far-flung sources not only on New Guinea, but also Africa and Brazil. 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 sixteenth-century Europe. Linschoten travelled to Goa in 1584 as a Fugger employee; in India he also served for six years as secretary to the Archbishop of Portuguese Goa. Gathering information from the start, his 'avaricious thirst for knowledge... enabled him to get detailed information of land and sea as far afield as the Spice Islands and China' (Penrose), and he was an informed observer of the gradual decline of Portuguese power in the East Indies who perceived enticing trade routes and monopolies. He met and debriefed numerous travellers including men like Dirck Gerritszoon Pomp, also known as Dirck "China", the sailor who had been the first known Dutchman to visit China and Japan. Returning to Holland in 1592, he prepared his notes for publication to satisfy growing European curiosity about commercial possibilities in Asia.Linschoten's text was produced in collaboration with his compatriot Bernhard Paludanus, who collected a large number of natural history and ethnographic objects; his cabinet of curiosities was eventually incorporated into the Royal Danish Kunstkammer, which now forms part of the National Museum, Copenhagen. He was directly responsible for the extensive notes on Indian natural products in the book.The maps and birds-eye views included are themselves of great importance. Penrose states that 'Linschoten's Itinerario also contained a series of very distinguished maps, especially of Africa, southern Asia, and the East Indies. These were based on the Portuguese portolan charts of of Vaz Dourado and Bartolomeu Lasso, and therefore - in the case of the East Indies and Malaysia particularly - were ahead of any printed maps done previously'. They include the so-called "Spice Islands map" originally issued separately by Plancius about 1594. Based on a collection of charts and rutters which Plancius acquired in Lisbon in 1592 from Bartoleomeu Lasso, it shows the islands in great detail. Due to the somewhat unusual orientation of this map, the tip of the southern proto-continent marked 'Beach' appears to the westernmost edge. Cartographic historian David Parry has described this as 'one of the most fabulous [maps] ever produced of the East Indies and one of the rarest, [which] shows the Spice Islands in a level of detail never previously seen' (Cartography of the East Indian Islands, p. 85).The book was to play a vital role in the history of Dutch expansion in the East Indies, helping to send on their way a whole series of Dutch, French and English fleets to the Spice Islands and beyond to China and Japan by its emphasis on the riches of the area and the slackening of Portuguese control. Indeed the fine world map by Plancius which begins the volume also shows the tip of a southern continent with its traditional name (dating back to Marco Polo) of "Beach" and describing it as "Provincia aurifera", while in his text Linschoten makes frequent reference to natural mineral wealth. The collation of the various editions of Linschoten is sometimes challenging; this copy contains the 36 plates as called for in the standard bibliographies (being the same as the 1596 Dutch edition). However, this count does not include the engraved ornamental title page or the portrait of Linschoten to the verso of the preface. Furthermore, this copy contains an additional engraved leaf bearing a complex armorial device that is not listed in the standard bibliographies and is presumably specific to this copy. In total the book contains six maps, again as per the 1596 Dutch printing, as well as the North Sea map specifically added to this Latin edition of 1599.

Neat early 19th century signature on title-page and old manuscript notation on the translator's background on the front blank. The binding in very fine condition. THE SCARCE SECOND ISSUANCE OF THE FIRST EDITION IN ENGLISH OF GUICCIARDINI'S IMPORTANT HISTORY OF ITALY. A friend and critic of Niccol? Machiavelli, Guicciardini is considered one of the major political writers of the Italian Renaissance. In this masterpiece, The History of Italy, Guicciardini paved the way for a new style in historiography, with his use of government sources to support arguments and the realistic analysis of the people and events of his time. provides a detailed account of politics in the Italian Peninsula between 1490 and 1534. Written during the last years of his life, this work contains the historian's observations collected over his entire lifetime and was a work intended for posterity. Guicciardini was friends with Niccol? Machiavelli and the two maintained a lively correspondence until Machiavelli's death in 1527. Though Guicciardini was of significantly higher social standing their letters reveal a relaxed, comfortable relationship between the two. Guicciardini was critical of some of the ideas expressed by Machiavelli and both were innovative in their approach to history. None of Francesco Guicciardini's works were published during his lifetime (1483-1540). It was not until 1561 that the first sixteen of the twenty books of his History of Italy were published. This first English translation by Sir Geffray Fenton was published originally in 1579 and included all 20 books. For his research Guicciardini drew upon material that he gathered from government records as well as from his own extensive experience in politics. His many personal encounters with powerful Italian rulers serves to explain his perspective as a historian: ?Francesco Guicciardini might be called a psychological historian?"for him the motive power of the huge clockwork of events may be traced down the mainspring of individual behavior. Not any individual, be it noted, but those in positions of command: emperors, princes and popes who may be counted on to act always in terms of their self-interest?"the famous Guicciardinian particolare.? -Sidney Alexander.

        The Bible, that is, the holy Scriptures conteined in the Olde and Newe Testament, translated according to the Ebrew and Greeke, and conferred with the best translations in diuers languages With most profitable annotations vpon all the hard places, and other things of great importance

      London: Impr. by the deputies of Christopher Barker 4to (22 cm, 8.6"). Add. t.-p., [3], 190, 127, 121, [11] ff.; illus.. 1599 [i.e., 1633 or later] At least five editions appeared with this 1599 imprint, almost none of which were actually printed that year. Darlow and Moule note, "The phenomena of the various editions described under the year 1599 . . . constitute one of the most curious problems in the bibliography of the English Bible." Clearly there was a demand (by English Puritans and by Pilgrims in the Low Countries and America, among others) for Geneva Bibles, with their strongly Protestant marginal notes, well after they could no longer be printed openly in London. Pocock is of the opinion that recognizing this, Robert Barker "adopted" various early-17th-century Amsterdam and Dort Genevas; the back-dating and "back-attributing" on their title-pages would have associated these with and effectively disguised them as a popular and approved Bible printed by his own father, who died in that year and whose press he took over in the year following. STC attributes the whole array of editions purely to Stam in Amsterdam, who as publisher also would have benefitted from the fame and innocuousness in England of Christopher Barker's actual 1599 edition, though he would have had no reason in Dutch law for disguise. The text at hand here is the Geneva version (as usual, without the Apocrypha), with Tomson's revised New Testament and Junius's Revelation — but this copy thoroughly muddies the waters with a title-page supplied from another copy, possibly even the genuine 1599 printing. The New Testament title-page also gives 1599 (as does the colophon), but is original to the present copy. The woodcut title-page border (repeated for the New Testament's separate title-page) is the classic depiction of the Twelve Tribes of Israel in panels on the left and the Twelve Apostles on the right, with rondelles of the Four Evangelists. The text is illustrated with woodcuts of Noah's Ark, the crossing of the Red Sea, the artifacts associated with the Tabernacle and the Temple, the vision of Ezekiel, etc., along with maps of the suggested location of the Garden of Eden, the Israelites' wanderings in the wilderness, and the Holy Land. Binding: Early 19th-century signed binding by Hering (stamped on front free endpaper): oxblood morocco framed and panelled in gilt triple fillets, spine with gilt-stamped title and dateline and gilt-ruled compartments, turn-ins with gilt roll. All edges gilt. Hering, one of the most prominent London binders of his period, was spoken of by Timperley as => "the head of the craft" at that time. Provenance: Laid-in letter from a London bookseller to Pennsylvania collector John S. Cochran of Lancaster, dated 1948, optimistically but incorrectly affirming this to be "the earliest of many editions of this date. Binding as above, lightly rubbed and spine slightly sunned; front hinge (inside) cracked, joint holding strongly. Two original brown silk bookmarks present and still attached. Front free endpaper with affixed slip of earlier cataloguing. A few early leaves with old repairs to upper or outer areas, in one case resulting in slight darkening of one woodcut and in another with loss of printed text, very carefully and neatly supplied in ink. Scattered light spotting, pages clean overall. A sound copy of an interesting Bible, modestly but elegantly bound.

        Hippostologie, c'est a dire, discours des os du cheval.

      Mamert Patisson, Paris 1599 - PIONEERING ANATOMY OF THE HORSE IN FRENCH FIRST EDITION. 4to. ff. (iv), 23, (i). a? A-F? Roman letter, preface in Italic, some Greek. Foliated woodcut initials and headpieces, engraved architectural title page, with royal arms of Henry IV at head, with his Monogram H at sides, horses at base of columns, six large engravings in text, plus one full page of the complete horse skeleton, early manuscript shelf mark on fly. Light age yellowing, very light marginal spotting, the odd mark or spot. A very good copy, crisp clean on thick paper and with good margins, excellent impressions of the plates, in contemporary vellum over thin paste boards, remains of ties. Extremely rare and important first, and only, edition of this treatise on the anatomy of the horse, beautifully illustrated with seven exceptional engraved plates by J de Weert, some of the finest and most accurate engravings of horse anatomy of the C16th. This work describes the anatomy of the horse in great detail and with great rigor. The engravings are of such detail that it is even possible to make out the joints of the skull, which are abundantly described. Remarkably it was the first work dealing specifically with horse anatomy published in France; the only other to touch on the subject was the translation into French of Vegetius’ work on horses of 1563, which, whilst dealing with the horse in general, barely touched on its anatomy, not even distinguishing between bovine and equine. Heroard wrote the work in 1579 and the manuscript was preserved in the library of Château de Chantilly, but it was not published until 1599, a year after the publication in Italy of Carlo Runi’s celebrated ‘L’Anatomia del Cavallo’. Heroard was not aware of Runi’s work. Heroard, a doctor, was given the title of ‘Médecin en l’Art vétérinaire’ in 1574, the first in France, before becoming physician to Charles IX. He most probably owed this role to the passion that Charles IX had for hunting and horses, and the king's determination to raise the standard of veterinary medicine, particularly in respect to horses. In his dedication to Henry IV, Heroard justifies his project by arguing for the benefits of presenting farriers with a horse anatomy written in French that they would be able to understand. He also implies Charles IX's instigation who took "un singulier plaisir à ce qui est de l’art Vétérinaire, duquel le subject principal est le corps du Cheval". It is probable that the work was intended as the forerunner to a much larger treatise on the anatomy of the horse or a full ‘Traite de tout l’art Veterinaire’ that never appeared. Heroard’s training was in medicine, and wherever applicable he used the language of human anatomy to describe that of the horse. Forced to invent new terms that were specific to the horse, he initiated the vocabulary of equine anatomy in France. The work was overshadowed by Runi’s anatomy and later ignored. However its importance in the history of veterinary science has now been recognized. "L’étude approfondie de l’Hippostologie d’Héroard montre que celui-ci mérite une place de choix dans l’histoire de l’anatomie vétérinaire. Il est le premier à avoir décrit un squelette entier de cheval en se fondant sur l’étude directe sur squelette. Il fut le premier à donner aux os du cheval des noms français raisonnés." Aurélien Jeandel "Jean Herouard premiere ‘Veterinaire Francais’. A very good copy of this beautifully illustrated and important work. BM STC Fr. C16th p. 223. Renouard 192:1. Mortimer French 273.

        MILICIA Y DESCRIPCION DE LAS INDIAS

      Madrid, 1599. Small quarto. Early mottled calf, spine gilt, leather label. Minor wear to hinges and corners. Some soiling and wear on lower corners of last few index pages. Earlier library ink stamps. Very good. One of the most important Spanish works on the Indies and New World military organization in the 16th century. It is a tactical manual by a Spanish veteran of the colonial South American frontier and the brutal wars against rebellious native Americans, as well as a rich source of ethnographic and military detail. "The first manual of guerilla warfare ever published....he advocated for the Americas the creation of commando groups to carry out search-and-destroy missions deep within enemy territory for up to two years at a time" - Parker. This work served as both a guide to aid new arrivals in conquest, as well as a sometimes testy address to King Phillip II detailing Vargas Machuca's many services to the Crown, whom he felt never recognized him adequately for his service. The text is divided into four books, followed by a description of the Indies. The parts cover the following subjects: the qualities needed to lead, the preparation of soldiers and necessary materials, the duty of the soldier, and the settling of the land after conquest. It includes significant chapters on military medicine and natural history, though the real significance lies in the fact that "scattered throughout MILICIA INDIANA are unwitting fragments of indigenous and rural Spanish colonial history. Perhaps the main gap that this book helps to fill, if only partially, is the story of early and unconquered 'backcountry' New Granada" (Lane). Bernardo Vargas Machuca (ca. 1555-1622) was a Spanish soldier, born in Simancas. He took part in several campaigns in Old Granada and Italy before setting off for the Caribbean in 1578 to help chase down the famed pirate, Francis Drake. His first services in the New World are obscure, until he arrived in New Granada, present-day Colombia, in 1585, one of many re- conquistadors still hoping to find the golden city of El Dorado. While settled in New Granada he participated in many campaigns against rebellious natives, becoming known for his ruthless and quick-striking tactics, explained in this text. These included campaigns in present-day Peru and Bolivia, and Colombia. In 1595 he returned to Spain, hoping to capitalize on his service to obtain promotion. Despite his best efforts, including the publication of this book, Vargas Machuca was unable to secure an ENCOMIENDA or any other titles or appointments from King Phillip II. What positions he did manage to secure were in out-of-the-way locations relatively ignored by the Crown: one as paymaster of the three forts of Portobelo in Panama and later as governor of Margarita Island in the Caribbean. Both appointments were short-lived and ill-starred, and in the end, Vargas Machuca, both broke and indignant, made his way to court once again to seek another appointment. In keeping with his bad luck, he died suddenly in Madrid of an unknown illness, shortly after being appointed governor of Antioquia, one of New Granada's declining gold districts. The MILICIA INDIANA is thus a manual of Indian warfare, an appeal for promotion based on services, and a picture of the colonial New World at a time far less documented than the original conquest. The multiple bankruptcies of the Spanish Crown and the decline of bullion production from the Americas were leading the New World empire into a long, slow decline. It is this period of entropy, balanced by violent frontier conflict, that Vargas Machuca documents. The book is also a proposal: the Indian uprisings in colonial Chile, long a thorn in the side of the Spanish, had broken out again, and he hoped to be appointed governor-general there, to suppress the rebellion with the tactics described in the book. He did not get the appointment. Besides this book Vargas Machuca wrote COMPENDIO Y DOCTRINA NUEVA DE LA GINETA, SECRETOS Y ADVERTENCIAS DE ELLA, SENALES Y ENFRENAMIENTOS DE CABALLOS, SU CURACION Y BENEFICIO, a manual on horsemanship printed in Madrid in 1619; and DEFENSA DE LAS CONQUISTAS DE LAS INDIAS, an attack on Las Casas, which only survives in manuscript. This is the only copy of the present work to appear for sale since a copy sold at auction in 1967; Maggs asked £250 for a copy in 1927. As is usually the case, the final leaf with printing ornament is lacking, as is the portrait. A rare and interesting work on early warfare tactics against the natives of South America. Accompanied by the modern scholarly translation.

An appealing copy. * Third edition with an English text. De Laudibus Legum Angliae, a history of English law, was written for the instruction of Edward, the young Prince of Wales. Cast in dialogue form, it demonstrates that the common law was the oldest and most reasonable legal system in Europe. It also compares the common and Roman systems and extols the superiority of a constitutionally limited monarch to an absolute monarch. De Laudibus was written around 1470 and first published (in Latin) in 1537. "Fortescue was a favorite among the old lawyers, and will be read with profit in modern times by those who are interested in the origin and progress of the Common Law" (Marvin). This was the first work to examine trial by jury and the Inns of Court at length. Marvin, Legal Bibliography 321. Beale, A Bibliography of Early English Law Books T359.

        The First Part of the Life and Raigne of King Henrie IIII. Extending to the end of the first yeare of his raigne

      London : John Wolfe, 1599 A good copy of this scarce work. The first edition of this work was published in 1599, and incurred the anger of Queen Elizabeth I, who had the work assessed by Francis Bacon to establish treasonous intent. John Hayward was imprisoned and second edition copies were destroyed. It was republished with the original 1599 title page in 1629 and it is likely that this copy dates from 1629 because it was published without frontispiece (which features in the late 1630's edition) and has an inverted 'e' in Teucer on the page following the title page. The half leather binding has marbled boards which look contemporary. The spine and leather corners are very worn but the book is currently sound. Page edges red. Internally: a neat ink handwritten history of the work has been written on the front pastedown (possibly 1700-1800's); free endpaper clean; title page; page entitled 'Illustrissimo & honoratissimo' (dedication to the Earl of Essex) with decorative initial capital; page of 'Faultes escaped in the Printing'; 'AP to the Reader' 4pp with decorative headpiece and initial capital; Text pp 1- 149 with decorative headpiece and tailpiece and initial capital; colophon; blank with small ink note to top - R644; free endpaper. Text is generally in good to very good condition - there is the occasional small mark and very light toning to paper. Size 18.6 x 14.5 cm. A nice copy.

        Anatomia del cavallo, infermita, et suoi rimedii. Opera nuova, degna di qualsivoglia prencipe, & cavaliere, & molto necessaria à filosofi, medici, cavallerizzi, & marescalchi. Adornata di bellissime figure, lequali dimostrano tutta a'anatomia di esso cavallo.

      Venice, Gaspare Bindoni, 1599 - 2 vols in one, folio (338 x 230 mm), pp. [xxxvi] 295; [iv, including blank] 386 [30, including terminal blank], woodcut devices on titles, titles printed in red and black, with 64 full-page woodcut illustrations, manuscript correction on m1 recto (vol one) as in Mortimer; wormhole in blank margin of several gatherings, only occasionally touching a letter, a few gatherings very slightly browned, overall a very fresh, crisp, unpressed copy in contemporary parchment over pasteboards, spine worn. £30,000First edition, second issue, one of the great rarities in the history of medicine and zoology. It is the first book devoted exclusively to the anatomy of an animal, and is considered comparable to Vesalius' Fabrica, the illustrations of which strongly influenced those of Ruini. 'In thoroughness of treatment and beauty of illustration, Ruini's study of the horse set a pattern in zoological anatomy' (Dibner).'Occupying an isolated position is the splendid monograph on the Anatomy of the horse by Carlo Ruini of Bologna, published posthumously in 1599. It is the product not of a physician, nor of a professional veterinary surgeon, but of a lawyer. Nevertheless, it does for equine Anatomy a similar service to that which the Fabrica of Vesalius had done for human Anatomy; its truly magnificent figures need not fear comparison with those of Vesalius and of Eustachius, by the side of which they may be placed. The text is no less admirable than the figures; the description of the eye, ear, intestines, kidneys, and bladder being especially good. Ruini gives a clear account of the structure of the heart and of the mechanism of the pulmonary circulation. His book is the first devoted to the anatomy of an animal, and is one of the finest achievements of the heroic age of Anatomy' (Singer, The evolution of anatomy, p 153, with three plates reproduced).'At the hands of Ruini the subject of equine anatomy jumped at a single bound from the blackest ignorance to relative perfection, the degree of which it is difficult to exaggerate' (Sir Frederick Smith, The early history of veterinary literature).A total of 15 editions appeared between 1598 and 1769; the original blocks were only used for this first, and were then recut for the 1618 and subsequent editions. This issue differs from the first in having cancel titles dated 1599 and cancel dedication leaf. The remainder comprises the sheets of the Bologna 1598 printing.
