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.

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. The illustrations include half and three-quarter-page engraved portraits of the Counts and Countesses of Oldenburg with their arms, woodcuts and engravings of arms, coins and seals, a full-page engraving of the renowned drinking horn of Oldenburg, a fine double-page engra … [Click Below for Full Description]

A compilation of information on magnetic variation which would assist navigators in determining their position at sea, this English edition was translated by Edward Wright upon the urging of Richard Hakluyt. 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 var … [Click Below for Full Description]

Brown Calf half-leather with marbled boards, binding likely late 18th-early 19th Cent., "Bible/1599" in gilt on spine, 6 narrow gilt (not raised) bands. Leather clean and firm, minor repairs to hinges, but marbled boards quite rubbed. Text block trimmed down from 4to to 8vo, without any loss of text (or printed marginalia). Engraved general title page and New Testament title page lacking, but supplied in matching facsimile; printed general title is present (dated 1599), and original. Repairs to gutter of "How to take profite in reading the Holy Scriptures", affecting text of this and "Names and order of all the Bookes" on the verso. Missing text and numbers neatly restored on matching paper. Text is that of the Geneva version, with Tomson's revision of Beza's New Testament, and Junius's Revelation.

Publisher's colophon dated 1599 on final page of text after Second Table of "principall Things".

[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.

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]
