On display is a unique example of a 1599 Geneva Bible printed by the deputies of Christopher Barker printer to the Queens most excellent majestie. It contains the Old and New Testament. The cover is a light Brown. Both boards and spine are firmly attatched and the book is tight and put together very well. The truly rare part of this Bible is the age. Printed just 39 years after the very first complete English version of the first Geneva Bible. It is one of only a few extremely rare Bibles printed in the 1500's to have survived the centuries. This is an excellent example of a 1500's Bible and of course with virtually anything of this age it is incomplete. While not having checked every page it does appear to be mostly complete in the New Testament. It does end in Revelations chapter 22. That is followed by a first and second Table which is entitled a brief Table of the interpretation of the proper names. The Old Testament starts with Exodus chapter 13. While it is incomplete, it is extraordinarily rare to find a Bible in the 1500's in any condition much less completely rebound with damaged pages mostly repaired. Pictures above show this. Another unusually rare part to this Bible is the type print itself. While most Geneva Bibles were printed in blackletter, this particular is an early example of roman typeface. Very unique to this time period. It measures 9" x 7 1/4 " x 1 3/4" and weighs in at a little over 2 pounds. This is a Quarto Bible which in the 1500's would make it a family Bible. It is of course used and does show the expected wear and tear associated with its age. … [Click Below for Full Description]

Published by Antwerp: "Ex Officina Plantiniana, Apud Ioannem Moretum," 1599. 4to: 96 [8]pp The publication of De Cruce is thought to be a way of demonstrating his reconciliation with Catholicism after years of spiritual drifting. The 19 engravings in the text (including one full page) depict mainly crucifixion scenes and have been attributed to Peeter van der Borcht, the noted painter, draughtsman and etcher who supplied Plantin with drawings for many of the engravings appearing in his volumes during this period.

POPE CLEMENT VIII (1536-1605)
1599. POPE CLEMENT VIII (1536-1605). Pro altare privilegiato... Rome: Apud Impressores Camerales, 1599. Very rare four page printing of three letters issued by Pope Clement VIII concerning the Philippines and the Kingdom of Japan. Written while Clement VIII was residing in Ferrara in 1598, these letters are written most likely in response to Franciscan priest Francisco de Montilla's brief visit to Italy following his missionary activity to the Philippines and the Far East. Indeed, the last two letters mention Montilla by name. Montilla, a native of Spain, traveled to Mexico in 1580, and from there to the Far East. He is the author of a work entitled: Historia de la propagacion de la fe, en Filipinas, Japon, China, Cochinchina y Siam (November 22, 1602). He was in Italy in 1595-96 on business for the general chapter, and it is probably during this period that he obtained an audience with the Pope and asked for assistance with the missions in the East. Clement issued these three decrees in response to the news that Montilla and his companions brought. The first letter is an indulgence granted to all who are willing to financially assist the Hospital San Juan de Dios in Manila, founded in 1596, making it the third oldest hospital on the islands. The second letter grants permission to Montilla to remove relics from the city of Rome and its environs and transport them to the Philippines and Japan in order to "augment the devotion" of the faithful. The third letter is similar in nature, granting an indulgence to all who financially contribute to ensuring that the relics are worth … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bible. N.T. Greek & Latin. Arias Montano. 1572.
Ex officina Commeliniana, 1599. One of the last 16th-century interlinear editions of the Greek New Testament and Vulgate Latin, as first presented in Plantin's monumental Royal Antwerp Polyglot Bible of 1569-72. The text is printed in Greek with the Vulgate in roman type inter-linearly; additionally, there are decorative letters, and head- and tailpieces. When the Vulgate differs from the Greek, its text is printed in the margin as a shouldernote and a literal Latin rendering by the great Spanish theologian Benedictus Arias Montanus (a.k.a. Benito Arias Montano) is printed in italics in the text. The Commelin device appears on the title-page, which describes this printing as "Editio postrema, multò quàm antehac emendatior." Evidence of Readership: Marginal notes or accents in at least two early hands have been added in ink in two dozen-plus places, with one page used for scribbling and content ranging from a squiggle to a word to real notes; two Latin words and the publication date, in Arabic numerals under the publisher's roman, have been inked to the title-page. Provenance: Early calligraphic ownership note of "Dudley" dated 1843 on binder's blank; later ownership signature of E.F. Whitehouse with the shelfmark 354 and an acquisition note including the collectorly report, "It was all to bits, I had it bound and consider it a great curiosity."

apud Matthaeum Beckerum impensis Theodorici de Brij viduae & duorum filiorum, 1599. DU LAURENS, André. Historia anatomica humani corporis. Frankfurt, apud Matthaeum Beckerum impensis Theodorici de Brij viduae & duorum filiorum [1599] FIRST EDITION. Folio, pp. 442, *4 **4 A-Z4 Aa-Zz 4 Aaa-Mmm4 . 23 anatomical engravings (lacking 3 plates: y3 - pp. 173-4; Aa - pp. 185-6; Bb3 - pp. 197-8). Roman and Italic letter, some Greek. Floriated initials, head- and tail-pieces. Beautifully engraved title-page with portrait of the author within an elaborate portico. A few initial and final leaves worn to margins, some age yellowing and occasional light spotting throughout. Bound in comptemporary calf over pasteboards, recently rebacked. Notwithstanding the faults, a scarce edition of this famous anatomical work illustrated with a set of beautiful plates. This is the scarce variant of the first edition of this work, which drew much from Andreas Vesalius’ De humanis corporis fabrica (1543) and from the later anatomical works of Valverde and Coiter. The other more common variant includes a dedication letter to the King of France with an engraved portrait of the sovreign within a decorated border and uses a slightly finer set of historiated initials. André Du Laurens’ first published anatomical work, which was the basis for the present enlarged edition, is titled Opera anatomica. The latter first appeared in Lyon in 1593 and then in Hanau 1595 (sometimes the work is given as first issued in Paris in 1589, but we did not manage to verify this assertion beyond any reasonable doubt). “Du Lauren … [Click Below for Full Description]

While not having checked every page it does appear to be mostly complete in the New Testament. It does end in Revelations chapter 22. That is followed by a first and second Table which is entitled a brief Table of the interpretation of the proper names. The Old Testament starts with Exodus chapter 13. While it is incomplete, it is extraordinarily rare to find a Bible in the 1500's in any condition much less completely rebound with damaged pages mostly repaired. Pictures above show this. Another unusually rare part to this Bible is the type print itself. While most Geneva Bibles were printed in blackletter, this particular is an early example of roman typeface. Very unique to this time period. It measures 9" x 7 1/4 " x 1 3/4" and weighs in at a little over 2 pounds. This is a Quarto Bible which in the 1500's would make it a family Bible. It is of course used and does show the expected wear and tear associated with its age. … [Click Below for Full Description]

Rocamoro y Torrano (Ginés)
Madrid: Juan Herrera, 1599. First edition. Hardcover. 4to. (14), fol. 1-271, (1). Woodcut of the arms of Don Luys Faxardo on the title page. Full vellum, ties, manuscript spine title Illustrated with woodcuts, including several full page plates of the sphere of Ivan Sacrobosco, another illustrating both solar and lunar eclipses, and a large woodcut of the solar system showing the earth in the center and the sun revolving in an orbit between Venus and Mars. This title is somewhat bibliographically confusing in that the preliminaries differ from copy to copy, and the title page is sometimes typeset, sometimes with the shield of Don Luys. Palau (271732) remarks that the author may have spoiled some of the early leaves by not including his frontispiece ("Es debido a que el autor inutilizó las primeras hojas por no haber incluido su retrato..."), and by substituting 18 new leaves. This copy lacks p2, the frontispiece, as is frequently the case; but the leaf with the Sonnet of Lope de Vega (obverse) and the Licenciado Camarino (reverse) is present here, though not so in other copies. Joannes de Sacrobosco, a scholar-astonomer at the University of Paris, published his work on the Sphere about 1230, which gives a readable account of the Ptolemaic universe and contains a clear description of the earth as a sphere. Even though Copernicus was formulating his ideas of a heliocentric solar system in the mid 1500's, this concept was apparently not yet considered the norm. This is a very good copy: folio 74 has a closed and neatly mended horizontal tear (no loss) and folio 104 has a repai … [Click Below for Full Description]

Valesco de Tarenta; Valescus de Taranta
Frankfort: Ex Officina Chalcographica Romani Beati, 1599. 4to. Bound in contemporary blind stamped vellum. Minor soiling, stains to cover. Collated: [12], including blank, 677, [22], pages. Scattered foxing, a few pages have contemporary marginalia/underlining. Taranta was a Portuguese physician, who practiced medicine for 36 years in Montpellier. He served as the Court Physician of King Charles VI of France. In this, his most important work, Valesco presents a practical treatise on pathology and medical practice. Unlike his contemporaries, Valesco didn't base his medical recommendations on the work of ancient Greek masters, but instead he advocated modern and observation-based practices. "In the Philonium, first published in 1488, he presents a general textbook of medicine intended to cover all of medicine except surgery."-Heirs of Hippocrates 120. Valesco was the first to propose the use of arsenic to cure cancer. Good. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

VALASCO, Alvaro [Vaz]
1599. A rare 16th-century first edition of Alvari Valasco's "Quaestiones Juris" - a collection of fifty-one 'questions' with answers, discussions, and commentary. The discussions are chiefly based on Roman Law with attention to papal decrees, the "Libri Feudorum", and statutory law in Portugal. Valasco also discusses the right to own land, property, and acquire agricultural funds - the idea that property and home improvement was important. According to Zwierlein, "Early modern commentators saw emphyteusis as a very robust right, and a few therefore felt the need to specify, as did the Portuguese jurist Alvaro Vaz, that it was 'contrary to justice and equity' for a prince to deprive the emphyteuta of his land without cause" (Zweirlein, 95).

By Justus Lipsius Published: Ex Officini Plantiniana, Apud Ioannem Moretum, Antwerp / Antverpiae, 1599. 218 pp. + 5 pp. (each page is numbered). Numbered pages strangely starts at the title page. Hardcover boards are bound in vellum. There is foxing (spotting), wear to corners and some cracking along the spine at top and bottom. Corners are worn. The gilt name and design on spine is faded and lacking. Inside the flyleaf (page that stretches from hardcover and forms first piece of paper) has quite a few pencil marks from bookshops and owners. There is also one owners plate (sticker with name) on the flyleaf at the back side of the front cover.. It appears at one time someone had it for sale for $2500. The front flyleaf has a few worm holes close to the binding. The title page, and second page, has edge wear and tears, and a few small worm holes (the worm holes seem to only progress a page or two into the text block). The printers engraving is not affected. The flyleafs are a whiter color than the text block. The ancient notes someone took in the margins are trimmed (meaning the edges of the paper have been recut to make them straight). I believe this book has been rebound, and based on the vellum and spine gilt I'd guess it was during the 17th century.

Slightly later limp vellum (perhaps a remboîtage?) attached to text block by three leather stitches (one now lacking), flat spine with [library?] number painted on in red, no pastedowns, remnants of two ties. Title page with printer's device of John Wolfe. Front inside cover with bookplate of Robert S. Pirie; front free endpaper with neat ink inscription of W. W. Greg, Park Lodge, 1928 (see below); occasional annotations in pencil in a modern hand. Pforzheimer 457; STC 12996. Binding detached at front (rear thongs holding), mild rumpling to covers, vellum lightly soiled, one tiny hole to front cover, text block protruding slightly from binding fore edge (more so at foot), small tears to front and rear endpapers, occasional mild foxing, a couple of faint inky fingerprints, but in excellent condition internally, clean and fresh with ample margins.This is one of several historical works Hayward (1564?-1627) wrote in the style of the great Roman historian Tacitus, but the only one that landed him in prison. Apart from that unhappy fact, the book is quite important in that it represents the first history written in English to depart from the style of strict chronological accounts. Instead, it applies Tacitus' theory that the moral character of historical actors had a causal relationship on subsequent affairs of state, and this was a revolution in early modern historiography.

CLAVIUS Christoph (1537-1612)
ALOYSIUS ZANETTUS, 1599. Legatura moderna in piena pergamena, autore, titolo, data e fregi in oro al dorso. Fogli di guardia originali, entrambi con una nota manoscritta al recto o al verso. 12 pagine non numerate, compreso il frontespizio con titolo, ampio stemma gesuitico e due timbri nobiliari identici con un leone rampante; 240 pagine numerate; all'ultima, sotto al colophon, nota manoscritta di possesso di un certo Hyppoliti. Nel testo, numerose illustrazioni silografiche di diagrammi vari. Prima edizione di questa celebre opera di Clavius, pubblicata in successione al Gnomonices Libri VIII del 1582. Christoph Clavius fu gesuita, matematico e astronomo tedesco, forte contrappositore alle teorie coopernicane, reso celebre in particolare per il suo Commento alla Sfera del Sacrobosco e per il suo contributo alla definizione del calendario gregoriano gesuita. Egli divenne il più autorevole matematico dei gesuiti e tra i più autorevoli del suo tempo, redasse un gran numero di opere a carattere scientifico e astronomico di grande rilievo. Come astronomo segue il modello geocentrico del sistema solare, il modello ortodosso suffragato dall'opera di Claudio Tolomeo, opponendosi al modello eliocentrico proposto da Niccolò Copernico. Esemplare in discrete condizioni, la legatura moderna eseguita non proprio a regola d'arte, gora laterale a praticamente tutto il volume. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

ALDROVANDI (ALDOVANDUS), Ulisse.
1599. Adams A-647; BMC NH I, pp. 26-27; Nissen, BBI 14; Nissen, IVB 18; Nissen ZBI 66, 68, 70, 72, 74-78; for Aldrovandi's museum: Findlen, Possessing nature, pp. 17-31; Stafleu & Cowan, pp. 28-29. Ten first (1599-1668) and three later (1634-1638) editions forming the complete works of Ulisse Aldrovandi (1522-1605), an Italian botanist, pharmacologist and a professor of botany at the university of Bologna. This massive encyclopaedia, most volumes published posthumously, was based on natural history specimens and drawings in Aldrovandi's own museum in Bologna. Already in the 1570s he welcomed visitors from near and far to his museum and at his death in 1605 he left it to the city of Bologna, making it the first institutional herbarium.Aldrovandi, hailed as the "Pliny of his time", was the author of several encyclopaedic works on natural history, the Opera being his most extensive work and also the largest collection of natural history illustrations published before the 18th century. Many of the illustrations in these 13 volumes are the work of Jacopo Ligozzi. The original drawings are still in Bologna and have been made available online. The Aldrovandi herbarium was the biggest of the 16th century herbaria and gives the most complete picture of the plant world as known at the time in Italy.In very good condition, with some waterstains and occasional browning. One volume has the head of the backstrip restored and several have cracks in the hinges, but the bindings remain good.

Binsfeld, Peter:
Brunntruti (i.e. Porrentruy), Jean Fabre. 1599. 8°. 30 n.n. S., 704 (recte 730) S. Schweinslederband mit blindgeprägter Rollstempelverzierung, Medaillon auf den Deckeln und zwei intakten Metallschliessen. Nicht in der «Bibliographie du Jura» von Amweg. - Selten wie alle frühen Drucke aus dem Fürstbistum Basel. Das Lehrbuch der Pastoraltheologie, in dem der Trierer Weihbischof Peter Binsfeld (1545-1598) diesen Begriff prägte, war weit weniger erfolgreich als dessen Schriften gegen die Hexerei. Binsfeld stieg vom armen Bauersohn bis in die höchsten deutschen Kirchenämter auf. Gefürchtet für seine Gnadenlosigkeit bei der Verfolgung von Hexen und Zauberern fanden seine Schriften grosse Verbreitung. Zwei Jahre nach seinem Hexentraktat erschien 1591 das vorliegende Lehrbuch in Trier, das sich hauptsächlich kirchenrechtlich begründet. - Mit handschriftlichem Besitzvermerk eines Niklaus Nietlispach aus dem Jahr 1601 mit einer kleinen Zeichnung auf dem fliegenden Vorsatz. Sprache: lateinisch.

Grand in-8 pleine basane granitée du temps, dos à nerfs formant des caissons ornés de fleurons centraux dorés dans un encadrement de petits fers et roulettes dorés, (1f+t+XIV+972+254pp+76pp non chiffrées). "Edition revue diligemment et de nouveau corrigée autre les précédentes impressions. Avec une docte table, faite française de la latine de Monsieur Jean Harlemius docteur en ladite université de la Compagnie de Jésus. Dernière édition". Le texte se décompose de la façon suivante: préfaces, Epître de Saint Jérôme touchant les livres de la Sainte Bible, Ancien et Nouveau Testament, puis in fine: état des Juifs sous la monarchie des Romains, table, intreprétations des noms". L'ouvrage présente les altérations normales de l'usage et du temps: papier parfois bruni, traces sombres et auréoles claires, quelque taches sans gravité; fentes ou déchirures minimes sans aucun manque de texte; coiffes manquantes; quelques altérations au cuir et aux coins. Mais dans l'ensemble le cuir ancien est conservé, la typographie est bien préservée, les pages sont correctes. Quelques inscriptions à l'encre ancienne dont le nom "Tillier Des Cusset". Très plaisant exemplaire malgré les défauts énoncés; texte en français. Illustrée de gravures sur bois dont de nombreuses lettrines, une grande ornementation sur la page de titre et un profil du Christ pour le titre du Nouveau Testament. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
