Percyvall, or Perceval (Richard)
Imprinted by Edm. Bollifant, 1599. 2 works (the second in 2 parts) in one vol., woodcut printer's device on both titles and part title (McKerrow 293 and 305), the Dictionarie printed in 3 columns within rules, the Grammar mainly in black letter, the Dialogues with parallel texts in double columns, first few leaves browned at top edge, and the title a little stained, a few spots and stains here and there and occasional minor browning, some water-staining at the very end, a little worming in the lower margins, pp. [viii], 391; [viii], 84; [iv], 68, folio in 6s, modern calf, contrasting lettering pieces on spine, by Period Binders, annotated throughout in a mid- to late seventeenth-century English hand (more profusely in the first quarter, but nonetheless throughout), and with various ownership inscriptions (see below), good. 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. The printers set to work, so hurriedly that Minsheu, who had retired to the country 'upon necessitie' (Dictionarie), was given no opportunity to read the … [Click Below for Full Description]

VEER, Gerrit de (ca 1573-after 1598).
Venice: Gio. Battista Ciotti, 1599. 4to., (8 x 5 7/8 inches). Vignette title-page, one engraved plate of a compass rose, five maps, and 26 vignettes, including two printed in sanguine. 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. The first Dutch expedition to Asia left from the island of Texel in June 1594. Willem Barentsz commanded two ships which … [Click Below for Full Description]

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]

Woodcut blasón on title-page. Bound in modern marbled paper over boards. Some toning, and minor discoloration to join of plates, but generally good.Very rare first edition of the funeral exequies held in Naples for Philip II of Spain, containing a large folding engraving of the baroque mausoleum designed for the occasion by Domenico Fontana, who with della Porta had completed St. Peter's Cathedral after Michelangelo's death. The engraving depicts both the façade and floor-plan of the mausoleum: a hexagonal tabernacle of Corinthian columns surrounding a central bier, with emblems painted on the base, entablature and modillions, and a dome that bears a striking resemblance to St. Peter's cupola, which Fontana had completed less than a decade before. Unlike contemporary catafalques, which were usually built from wood and painted with trompe l'oeil 'sculpture', Fontana's mausoleum was more than an occasional piece: Caputi states clearly that while some of its elements were finte di marmo (faux marble), others were of true colored marble or marmo gentile. Prior to discussing the monument's lavish ornamentation, the author also treats the proportional design of its arches, dome, pilasters, columns etc. The presence of a floor-plan, and Fontana's inclusion of functional ornament such as the cupola lantern (adapted from his design for St. Peter's), indicate that the present … [Click Below for Full Description]

Well known as a compiler and plagiarist he popularized many scientific works. His name is associated with more titles and subjects (distilling, anatomy, surgery, architecture, mathematics, dentistry, domestic medicine and cookery) than one human could have possibly have authored. As a distributor of knowledge to the masses he deserves more credit than he has received in the past. He greatly facilitated the transfer of what was then specialized or 'secret' knowledge to the growing number of lay people or scholars who were outside that trade. He was a prolific editor and one of the greatest titles he brought out was the first German edition of Vitruvius. One citation reports that his general deportment was so unsavory that he had great difficulty remaining for long in any particular community. All 16th century editions of this herbal are rare. Pigskin binding in good condition with two metal clasps incomplete and corresponding leather straps broken. Very Good. No Jacket. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

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."

First Edition of this finely illustrated chronicle of the German principality of Oldenburg by protestant theologian and historian, Hermann Hamelmann. It is the most valuable early printed source for the history of the ancient and noble House of Oldenburg, from which the Emperors of Russia, and Kings of Denmark, and one of the dynasties of Sweden are descended, and is also notable for being the first book printed in Oldenburg. The chronicle was compiled by Hamelmann at the suggestion of the ruling counts, and following his death in 1595, was seen through the press by Anton Hering, who altered some passages, and Hermann Neuwald, who contributed the continuation from 1595 to 1599.

RAMBAUD Antoine]
Lyon, Barthélémy Vincent, 1599. in-8, [97] pp. mal chiffrées 127 (il y a saut de chiffrage de 41 à 72 sur le même feuillet), vélin souple, dos lisse (reliure de l'époque). Quelques taches sur les plats, mais bon exemplaire.Edition originale très rare du second des plaidoyers de l'avocat Antoine Rambaud (mort vers 1630) en faveur des Etats du Dauphiné. Le premier était paru en 1598, à l'adresse de Paris, et il est aussi rare : en fait, l'on voit surtout l'édition collective des pièces de cette affaire, composée de trois parties, et donnée en 1600. Le Dauphiné, comme l'on sait, jouissait d'un statut très particulier en raison de l'acte de transfert à la Couronne de France ; ici, le point défendu est l'exemption générale de la taille pour l'ensemble de la province. Cioranescu, XVII, 58037. Absent de Baudrier. Une seule notice de cette édition au CCF (Grenoble). [Attributes: First Edition]

[EMBLEM BOOK] AMMAN, Jost
Frankfurt & Main: Johann Feyrabends, 1599. Fourth Edition. Hardcover. The title page and the two text leaves silked. The plates have an occasional finger smudge but are much cleaner than one would expect from a model book designed for use by artists. Small repaired hole in the bottom blank margin of one page. Very Good copy of a scarce book with intriguing plates. Small quarto (5-1/2" x 7-1/2") bound in early vellum; [1] 144 pages. Title in red and black with large woodcut printer's device. Illustrated with 289 (of 293, lacking Kk3 & Kk4) full-page woodcuts, nearly half of them depicting horses with or without riders, many of whom bear arms. The others depict a variety of subjects including kings, warriors, ecclesiastical figures, Turks in costume, mythological and allegorical figures, tradespeople, musicians, armorial escutcheons, etc. Laid in at the rear is the title page of Amman's 1580 First Edition KUNNST UND LEHRBUECHLEIN along with two engravings from that edition. A superb collection of this prolific master's woodcuts, some of the finest produced in the Renaissance. Born in Zurich, he established himself in Nuremberg where he continued in the manner of Durer. Adams A-969; Brunet I, 234; Fairfax Murray German 36; Graesse I, 103. Only a handful of copies of this title have sold at auction in the last 25 years. This copy matches in completeness the Walpole-Beckford copy which sold at Christie's in 1996. This famous work of patterns for artists was first published in 1578 with only 108 woodcuts. This is the most complete of the early editions.

[De Bry, Theodor]: Drake, Sir Francis; Sir Thomas Cavendish; and Sir Walter Raleigh:
[Frankfurt]: Theodorici de Bry viduae & filiorum, 1599.. Two parts bound in one volume. [2],78; 99pp. Double hemisphere copper plate world map on title-leaf, plus letterpress title and eighteen plates, each with a half page copper plate engraving and descriptive text, versos blank. Folding engraved map of northeastern South America. Folio. Modern limp vellum. Leaves expertly washed and pressed. Overall a very good copy. In a half morocco and cloth slipcase. 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 ext … [Click Below for Full Description]
