      Förbättrad och förmehrad i Stockholm åhr 1599 öfwersedd åhr 1608 och numehra efter nyia kyrckioordningen inrättad åhr 1693. Sthlm, Burchardi tryckieri, 1693. 4:o. (18),224 s. Hfrbd från 1700-talets andra hälft med upphöjda bind, sparsamt guldornerad rygg, ljusbrun titeletikett och stänkta snitt. Ryggen ytligt sprucken och småfläckig samt med en obetydlig skada nedtill. Titelbladet har en gammal överklistring på baksidan. Genomgående interfolierad och med gamla anteckningar mellan s. 82 och 83. Enstaka lagerfläckar. Obetydligt småsolkig på en del håll, t.ex. på s. 112 i yttermarginalen. Bra skrivpappersex. från Ericsberg.. Collijn Sveriges bibliografi 1600-talet 358. Davidsson Svenskt musiktryck före år 1750 nr 81. En oktavupplaga utkom samma år. Den ursprungliga redaktionen från 1608 utfördes av Petrus Kenicius och hans förord inleder även denna upplaga. På titelbladets baksida är uppgiften "Och fins hos Burchardi til kiöps för tre daler och 24. öre kopp." överklistrad. Jesper Swedberg, som övervakade tryckningen av denna upplaga, berättar i dedikationen till sin postilla "Gudz barnas heliga sabbatsro" (1710) hur han uppkallades till Karl XI som frågade hur kyrkobönen var utformad i den nya handboken. Kungen störde sig genast på formuleringen "bevara och välsigna hans kungl. maj:t, vår allernådigaste konung och herre", då han inte ville "högfärdas och pråla för gud med titlar". Han befallde därför genast Swedberg att ändra dessa ord till det mera dämpade "bewara och wälsigna wår älskelige konung och herra". Som en följd av detta makulerades den första textversionen och ersattes med en som innehöll den nya lydelsen, vilken återfinns på s. 79. Enligt Bengt Åhlén i "Ord mot ordningen" (1986) är inga exemplar som innehåller den första formuleringen kända. Som vanligt resulterade samarbetet mellan Swedberg och Burchardi i fina trycksaker

      8°. 7 n.n. Bl., 214 S., 1 Bl., Titel, 165 S. Mit einem Holzschnittporträt von Paracelsus und 7 Holzschnitten im Text. Lederband um 1820 mit schwarzem goldgeprägtem Rückenschild und wenig Rückenvergoldung. 3 Teile (von 5) in einem Band. Brüning 737. - Ferguson II, 469 (incplt.). - Sudhoff 244. - Zweite Ausgabe nach 1598 (dort in 4°) Enthält die Schriften des Salomon Trismosin, - angeblicher Lehrer von Paracelsus, der aber ebensowenig existierte wie Basilius Valentinus, - sowie Schriften von Paracelsus und von Korndorff. Offenbar wollte der Herausgeber des Werkes die Bedeutung der Schriften Paracelsus hervorstreichen in dem er ihm einen Lehrer unterschob der in allen Bereichen der alchemistischen Künsten beschlagen war. Trismosin konnte Metalle transmutieren, kannte den Jungbrunnen und die Essenz zum Erfolg bei Frauen. Die Schriften im 2. und 3. Teil wurden zum Teil Paracelsus untergeschoben, sind zum Teil aber auch aus den früher erschienenen Druckausgaben übernommen. Der Titel bezieht sich auf die griechische Sage vom goldenen Vlies. Das Holzschnittporträt ist eine verkleinerte Wiedergabe des Holzschnittes aus der Paracelsus Ausgabe von Huser. Die anderen Holzschnitte zeigen Laborgeräte. - Ueber den Druckort streiten sich die Experten. Straub hat seine Offizin offenbar während der Arbeit von Rorschach nach St. Gallen verlegt. - Die vorliegende Ausgabe in Oktav ist im Handel und in den Bibliotheken wesentlich seltener nachweisbar als die 1598 gedruckte Ausgabe in Quart. Durchgehend stark gebräunt, stellenweise wasserrandig. . Haupttitel später neu eingehängt und im Innenfalz hinterlegt. Dadurch das Porträt auf Titel verso mit kleinem Bildverlust. Letztes Blatt mit kleinem Eckabriss (ohne Textverlust). - Ein 4. und 5. Traktat sind 1604 in Basel gedruckt worden. - Wie alle Exemplar mit Gebrauchsspuren, hier jedoch komplett.

        Philobiblon... sive De Amore Librorum, et Institutione Bibliothecae, tractatus pulcherrimus. Ex collatione cum variis manuscriptis editio jam secunda; cui Accessit appendix de manuscriptis Oxoniensibus. Omnia haec, Opera & studio T[homas] J[ames]...

      Oxford : Joseph Barnes 1599 . FIRST ENGLISH EDITION Small 4to, (180 x 127mm), *4, A-I4 (inc. H4 blank), the printed marginalia shaved in a few places, in one case affecting a few letters, some underlining and occasional ms. annotations in a 17th. century hand, bound in antique-style limp vellum, yapp fore-edges, green silk ties, edges stained red. Provenance : Inscribed on title page "Ex dono Roberti Ashly, Martii 12o 1639" - probably to be indentified with Robert Ashly (1565-1641), described by Wood in his Athenae Oxoniensis as being a fellow commoner of Hart Hall in 1580, although from his autobiography it appears that he was also of Alban Hall and Magdalen College. He left Oxford without a degree and was called to the bar of the Middle Temple. He is known to have been a bibliophile, speaking in the preface to his "Almansor" (London, 1627) of having seen, in the library of the Escurial, "A glorious golden library of Arabian books." He donated much of his collection to the Temple Library. [see D.N.B.] This is the first edition to be printed in England of the earliest published work on that theme which is at the very heart of 'our' world - the love of books. Written in the early 14th century by the great English book-collector and patron of learning, Richard d'Aungerville (better known as Richard de Bury), it was first printed in 1473 in Cologne, reprinted at Speier in 1483 and Paris in 1500. The present edition, (the 4th), was edited by Thomas James of New College, Oxford, and dedicated to his patron Sir Thomas Bodley. He subsequently became the first "Bodley's Librarian". This is the first edition to be based on the collation of several manuscripts; the eight-page Appendix de manuscriptis oxoniensibus is one of the earliest printed catalogues of an English library

The translator "explained that he had brought the book out in the hope that it would assist masters engaged on long voyages to find their position by means only of their latitude and variation...It was hoped that instead of guessing, as up till now those not in possession of the information had had to do, and often wrongly...English navigators knowing their variation when in the latitude of St. Helena would be able to say, like the Portuguese, 'I am east, or I am west, of St. Helena because my variation is less, or is more, than the variation at St. Helena.' They could, of course, find the variation of St. Helena from THE HAVEN-FINDING ART" - Waters. A work of extraordinary rarity, this is the only copy to appear at auction in the last seventy years. It realized $5280 at the Penrose sale in 1971. STC 23265. TAYLOR, MATHEMATICAL PRACTITIONERS OF TUDOR & STUART ENGLAND 100. ADAMS & WATERS, ENGLISH MARITIME BOOKS 3453.

      [Frankfurt]: Theodorici de Bry viduae & filiorum, 1599. 2 parts bound in one volume, folio. (13 1/8 x 9 inches). [2],78; 99pp. The first letterpress title with integral engraved vignette of a double hemisphere world map, 18 half-page engraved plates, each with descriptive letterpress text beneath, versos blank, 1 folding engraved map of north-eastern South America. (Leaves expertly washed and pressed). Bound to style in limp vellum, half morocco and cloth slipcase. The circumnavigations of Drake and Cavendish, and Raleigh in search of El Dorado, with important maps The first edition, in Latin, of Part VIII of De Bry's Grand Voyages, here in the third issue, but without the two extra in-text maps on pages 78 and 3. This volume contains relations of six different voyages, by Drake, Cavendish, and Raleigh, with a map and illustrations never before published. These accounts describe Drake's famous circumnavigation of the world and Caribbean raids, Cavendish's circumnavigation, and the famous search for El Dorado. The three voyages of Sir Francis Drake recounted here are of the greatest importance. The first is a description of the famous voyage of circumnavigation of 1577-80, only described in print up to that time by Hakluyt, here based on the account of Nuno da Silva. Drake's Caribbean raid of 1585-86 is also reported, based on the account of Walter Bigges, as well as the final voyage of 1595-96, directed against the Spanish at Panama. This is the first extensive account of the last voyage, during which Drake died off Panama, and it is evidently based directly on his log, continued by others after his death. Besides these texts, the titlepage of the volume has an extraordinary double hemisphere world map, showing the track of Drake's circumnavigation with an inset portrait of Drake. Illustrations relating to Drake include engravings of his landing on the coast of Patagonia and his reception by California Indians during the circumnavigation voyage, as well as engravings after Boazio showing his captures of Santiago, Santo Domingo, Cartagena, and St. Augustine during the1855-86 Caribbean raid. The St. Augustine view is the earliest view of any North American town. Sir Thomas Cavendish's circumnavigation of 1586-88 was the third voyage around the world, and the account published here on pages 43-78 is one of the first to appear (accounts were issued in Amsterdam almost concurrently). This account is by Francis Pretty. The voyage followed a track similar to Drake's and was certainly based on knowledge gleaned from his trip. Three plates illustrate Cavendish's experiences in the Pacific. The remainder of the volume describes two voyages to the Caribbean and South America, one by Sir Walter Raleigh undertaken in 1595 in his famous search for El Dorado, and another of the following year to the same place, attributed to Raleigh but actually undertaken by Laurence Kemys. The large folding map illustrates this part of the volume, and provides the most detailed version of the cartography and imagined cartography of the Orinoco, Amazon and Guiana region published up to that time. Five of the illustrations also relate to the Guiana exploration. One of the most difficult parts of the De Bry Grand Voyages to obtain, with descriptions of the second and third circumnavigations of the world. Church Catalogue 164. JCB (3)I:401- 2; European Americana 599/21; Kraus, Drake 31; Sabin 8784; Servies 87.

A landmark in the development of maritime law, the Consolato del Mare was first published in Barcelona in 1484. A digest of the law and practice commonly followed by the commercial judges in the chief ports around the Mediterranean, it became a maritime common law of the Mediterranean and a foundation for subsequent European maritime laws and customs. It circulation was widest in Italy, especially among the Venetians, but it was also influential in Western Europe. In addition to maritime law, it contains a great deal of information about the day-to-day operations of a ship and practical advice on seafaring. Il Portolano del Mare, an appendix, is usually attributed to Alvise Ca da Mosto, a Venetian navigator who made two voyages to Guinea in the service of Portugal's Prince Henry the Navigator.

        MILICIA Y DESCRIPCION DE LAS INDIAS

      Madrid: En casa de Pedro Madrigal, 1599.. [15],186,[21] leaves, lacking portrait facing p.1 and final leaf with printing ornament. 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 ill-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 was leading the New World empire into a long, slow decline. It is this period on 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.

        Die freye Perspektive, oder Anweisung, Jeden Perspektivischen Aufriß von freyen Stücken und ohne Grundriß zu verfertigen.A Masterpiece in Descriptive Geometry. Zürich: Heidegger und Compagnie, 1759. First edition.

      Lambert's second book was "intended for the artist wishing to give a perspective drawing without first having to construct a ground plan. It is nevertheless a masterpiece in descriptive geometry, containing a wealth of geometrical discoveries. In this work Lambert proved himself a geometer of great intuitive powers. In the generality of his outlook, as in certain specific aspects, his work resembles that of Monge later on, usually considered the founder of descriptive geometry as a distinct branch of mathematics. Lambert's investigations of possible constructions by the use of a simple ruler, for example, constructing an ellipse from five given points, was similar in spirit to the program of Poncelet and J. Steiner two generations later" (D.S.B.) "A qualitative leap was made by Lambert in his book Freye Perspective ... He tried to construct perspective pictures by using an implicit form of projective geometry, without a given plan and elevation of the scene. In some sense his Freye Perspective contains the most fruitful use of the plane as a model of space; that is, to work on the plane without projections of the spatial objects instead of the objects themselves. This idea was later developed by Gaspard Monge" (Grattan-Guinness: Companion Encyclopedia of the History and Philosophy of the Mathematical Sciences, p.1599). "In his Freye perspektive he not only discussed perspective drawing but also the intriguing problem of what geometric constructions can be made with a straight edge alone and only a fixed compass" (Gray: Ideas of Space, pp.72). See also 'The Geometry of an Art, by Kirsti Andersen, pp. 647-650 for a detailed account of this work. The work was published simultaneously in German and French (La perspective affranchie de l'embaras du plan géométral). A second edition was published in two volumes in 1774 by Orell, Gessner, Fuesslin.. A very nice copy in contemporary parchment. Small 8vo: 182 x115 mm. Some slight wear to spine and corners. (12),196 pp. and 6 folding plates. This copy is lacking the errata leaf. The misprints have however been added/corrected in old ink by an earlier owner
