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".

Bible. English. 1599. Geneva-Tomson-Junius.
Impr. by the deputies of Christopher Barker. 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

BURY, Richard de (i.e. Richard Aungerville, bishop of Durham. 1281-1345)
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.

LAMBERT, Johann Heinrich.
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).

Frankfort am Main: Johann Feyerabends, 1599. Amman, Jost. Small quarto. (iv), (148)ff. First and only edition. Brunet calls this compilation of 293 wood engravings "rare et fort curieux." Amman, whose career flourished after his move to Nuremburg in 1561, succeeded Virgil Solis as artist for the printer Carl Sigmund Feyerabends. Originally intended for instructional use, this book, whose images include costumes, potentates, and emblematic devices, is rarely encountered complete. This is only the second complete copy to appear on the market in over twenty years. Bound in full straight-grain blue morocco, with gilt and blind borders. On both panels is an armorial device featuring a winged griffin beneath a pair of crowns. The armorial device belonged to George Spencer-Churchill, 5th Duke of Marlborough and Marquess of Blandford, and great-great-grandfather of Winston Churchill. In order to pay off the debts amassed because of unchecked spending, R.H. Evans sold the contents of Spencer-Churchill's White Knights Library in 1819 and 1820. This volume was sold on June 7th, 1819 for one pound and nineteen shillings. Sometime later, it was owned by Henry Huth--his leather booklabel is on the front paste-down. A member of the Philobiblion and Roxburghe Clubs, Huth assembled a collection rich in diversity. He chose only exemplary copies, as he felt that imperfect books were "the lepers of a library." Carefully washed, leaves show only minor soiling and spotting, and the binding exhibits only the slightest shelfwear. A.e.g. Overall, a fine copy of a truly rare book with a fine provena … [Click Below for Full Description]

TACITUS, G (aius) Cornelius
Paris, A. Drouart 1599 (dritter Teil: 1590). Drei Teile in einem Band.. 8°. (2) Bll., 790 Ss., (1) Bl. (weiß), (12) Bll., 568 Ss., (24) Bll. (letztes weiß), 24 Bll. Mit wiederholter Druckermarke und verschiedenen Zierstücken in Holzschnitt. Prachtvoller goldgepr. roter Maroquineinband mit Wappen des Gerichtshofes von Franche-Comte in Dole auf Vorder- und Rückendeckel (kaum berieben, Vordergelenk beschabt) ohne die Bindebänder; dreiseitiger Goldschnitt (etwas abgegriffen). Seltene und umfassend kommentierte Ausgabe. Diese Ausgabe umfasst die Werke des Tacitus, den Kommentar von Iustus Lipsius sowie in dem kurzen dritten Teil die Anmerkungen des Josias Mercerus (diese in der Ausgabe Paris, A. Drouart 1590). Tacitus (ca. 55 - ca. 120 n. Chr.) hat mit seinem historisch-politischen Schrifttum bis in die Neuzeit hinein gewirkt. In der Lebensbeschreibung seines Schwiegervaters Agricola (De vita Julii Agricolae) portraitiert er einen römischen Senator, der auch unter einem böswilligen Kaiser (Domitian) senatorisch-adlige Tugenden bewahrt; Agricolas militärische Erfolge als Statthalter in Britannien werden dabei eher überzeichnet. De origine et situ Germanorum, die Schrift über Lebensraum und Sitten der Germanen, urteilt strikt aus römischer Persepektive: je weiter von den Grenzen des Römischen Reiches entfernt, umso wilder gebärden sich die Germanen. Tacitus' Angaben über Herkunft und Sitten stellen - trotz vieler Ungenauigkeiten - eine erste Ethnographie der Germanen dar. Außerdem hat er einen klaren Blick für ihr militärisches Potential: In seinen Augen stellen sie die Hauptfeind … [Click Below for Full Description]

Vargas Machuca, Bernardo de:
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 Spa … [Click Below for Full Description]

London: Christopher Barker, nd. (1599). Full Leather. Near Fine binding. Octavo. There is no title page because these were printed to be put in the Geneva translation of the Bible as a concordance. There are several editions. This was printed by Christopher Barker [Printer to her majesty the Queen], and not one of his deputies. Therefore would have had to be printed by or before 1599 when Barker died. All editions until 1615 have the date 1578 on the second leaf, as this copy does. Rebound in a most handsome period binding; title label says "Hervey's Tables" rather than "Herrey's Tables". Digital photos are available. Near Fine binding.

First edition of Minsheu's glorious augmentation of Percyvall. 'Having settled in London as a language teacher, Minsheu [who was described as a rogue by Ben Jonson] compiled a Dictionarie in Spanish and English (1599), which was published together with a Spanish grammar and dialogues. They were all based on two textbooks of Spanish by Richard Percyvall, entitled Bibliotheca Hispanica (1591), the lexicon of which Minsheu considerably augmented. He refers to hostility towards his work in certain quarters, but ensured the grant of a licence to print by applying successfully to the archbishop of Canterbury.

Contemporary limp vellum, title in manuscript on the spine (skillfully rebacked preserving the original spine, 2 pairs of ties renewed). First Italian edition, first published in Dutch by Cornelius Claez in 1598, and an immediate bestseller. A truly ripping account and extensively illustrated text make it clear why. ONE OF THE MOST SHOCKING AND HARROWING TALES OF MAN VS. NATURE. Peppered throughout are graphic depictions of bear attacks, the cannibalizing of an entire ship to build a bear-proof shelter, and grueling portages over ice and frozen wastes. De Veer's account of Barentz's three voyages attempting to discover a Northeast Passage, is a major work of arctic exploration. Illustrated with magnificent maps of the area, and with fine plates depicting the trials and tribulations of the three voyages and Berentz' over-wintering on the remote and inhospitable Nova Zembla. In the late 15th century Portuguese navigators discovered a sea route to Asia, and immediately caused other nations to covet their exclusive and lucrative trade in rare and exotic spices such as pepper, cloves, and nutmeg. Eventually an alternative route to the Indies around the Cape of Good Hope was established in 1597 but not before the Dutch had made three attempts to find a Northeast Passage to Asia.

PARUTA (Paolo)
Venetia, Domenico Nicolini, 1599. 2 parties en un fort volume in-4, pleine basane marbrée (dos refait, plats d'origine conservés), (22) f. dont titre, 636 p., (1) f. de colophon et 21 p., (1) p. de colophon, impression en italique, lettrines historiées, bandeaux et culs de lampe, portrait de l'auteur en grande vignette de titre. Edition originale posthume de l’œuvre principale de Paolo Paruta, publiée un an après sa mort, prolongement des recherches entreprises par Machiavel. En théoricien de la raison d’Etat, l'auteur étudie les causes de la grandeur et de la décadence de l’Empire romain qu’il compare à la république vénitienne, pour conclure en faveur de cette dernière. Si les institutions politiques varient inévitablement selon le lieu, les circonstances et les moeurs, la personnalité du souverain et sa « virtù » doivent constituer un exemple absolu pour ses administrés. L’ouvrage est cité comme l’une des sources de Montesquieu. A la suite, sous pagination séparée: un 'Soliloquio', intéressante méditation de l’auteur sur son propre parcours et sa vie passée, sans doute inspirée par Saint Augustin. Homme d’État et historien vénitien, Paolo Paruta fut historiographe de Venise, sénateur, gouverneur de Brescia, ambassadeur et procurateur de Saint-Marc. (Adams, P.363. Brunet, IV, 392. Graesse, V, 144). Quelques petits soulign. anciennes au crayon en marge. Très bon exemplaire. [Attributes: First Edition]

Johann Theodor de Bry (1561-1623) and Johann Isreal de Bry
Frankfurt: Matthes Becter, 1599 ENGRAVED PLATE FROM VOLUME III OF DE BRY'S 'LITTLE VOYAGES' OF THE EAST INDIES Documenting Linschoten's Voyages (Contined from Vol. II), Cornelis de Houtman's Voyage to the East Indies (1595-1597), and Gerrit de Veer's Journal of Three Dutch voyages to reach the East Indies by the North (1594- 1597). WITH THE HIGHEST LEVEL OF EARLY 17TH-CENTURY GERMAN HAND-COLORING, HEIGHTENED IN GOLD. The caption to the map "A cidade de Angra na Ilha de Iesu xpo da Tercera" indicates that the map gives a bird's eye view of the city of Angra on the island of Terceira. Terceira is one of the Azores islands. One of the two Latin scrolls reads "Auctor Ioannes Hugonius A. linschoten. a:o 1595". Angra was Jan Huygen van Linschoten's home for two years. After his stay in the Indian city of Goa, Van Linschoten set out for Europe with a Portuguese return fleet in 1588. One of the ships was wrecked off the Azores in 1591. Van Linschoten was given the task of staying behind to protect the cargo. At the request of the Portuguese governor of the islands, Dom Christovão de Moura, he made a map of the city. Van Linschoten's map of Angra is the oldest known drawing of the city. We see Fort St. Sebastiano on the headland at the right and the estates sprawling over the hills of Terceira like patchwork, to the remarkable giant's feet on the bottom left with which the city seems to be greeting u … [Click Below for Full Description]

(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 … [Click Below for Full Description]
