      Frankfurt, Saur für Willers, 1600.. (12) 388 (16 (2w)) S. Mit Titelholzschnitt und ca. 260 Textholzschnitten u.a.von J. Amman. Kalbslederband der Zeit über Holzdeckeln mit Blindprägung und intakten Metallschließen.. Zu I: Zweite deutsche Ausgabe seines naturphilosophischen Hauptwerkes; ein Kompendium des damaligen naturwissenschaftlichen und technischen Wissens. Es enthält die Übersetzung seiner berühmten Abhandlungen "De rerum varietate" und "De subtilitate". - U.a. mit Kapiteln zu: Alchemie, Botanik, Zoologie, Anthropologie, Physik, Astronomie, Edelsteinen, Geographie (auch Amerika), Handwerk und Technik, ferner Astrologie, Okkultismus, Wahrsagerei und Magie. - Cardanus (1501-1576), der berühmteste Arzt seiner Zeit, versucht der Medizin eine von der galenischen und hippokratischen Tradition unabhängige wissenschaftliche Grundlage zu geben. Durch seine Horoskope für gekrönte Häupter erlangt er großes Ansehen. Als Mathematiker führt er vermutlich die ersten Berechnungen mit komplexen Zahlen durch und entwickelt die Grundlagen der Wahrscheinlichkeitstheorie. Er beschreibt erstmals das nach ihm benannte "Kardangelenk" bzw. die "Kardanwelle". Für die Chemie bedeutend ist seine Theorie der Verbrennungsvorgänge, mit der er die Grundlagen für die spätere Phlogistontheorie legt. Als Naturphilosoph vertritt er die kosmogonische Vorstellung und versucht die Koexistenz von christlicher Glaubensgewissheit und Wahrheit wissenschaftlicher Forschung zu beweisen. Die große Bedeutung Cardanus' liegt in der Verbindung zwischen seinem enzyklopädischen Wissen und seinem schöpferischen Denken begründet, mit der er inspirierend auf zukünftige Forschergenerationen wirkte. - DSB 3, 64; VD16 C938; Ferguson I, 142; Wellcome I, 1303; Rosenthal 210. - Zu II: Vierte Ausgabe. Übersetzung der Bücher 7 bis 11 seiner "Historia naturalis" durch J. Heyden. - Enthalten ist die Beschreibung der Menschen, vierfüßigen Tiere, Fische, Vögel und Schlangen. - Die Holzschnitte von Amman stammen u.a. aus dem Tierbuch von 1569, dem Ständebuch, dem Kriegsbuch von Fronsberger sowie aus verschiedenen Bibeln. - VD16 P3556; Nissen ZBI 3190; Becker, Amman 7e. - Beide Titel in Rot und Schwarz gedruckt. - Stellenweise gering fleckig und mit kleinem Wasserrand am oberen Steg. Teil I ohne das letzte weiße Blatt der Vorstücke sowie Titelblatt mit kleiner Fehlstelle (mit wenig Buchstabenverlust) und Rand sauber angefasert. Die ersten und letzten Lagen mit Wurmspuren. Vorsätze und 2 weiße Blätter mit Eintragungen von alter Hand. Einband etwas berieben, bestoßen und mit Wurmgängen. Kapitale und Ecken teils sorgsam restauriert. Insgesamt gut erhaltenes Exemplar

        The New Testament of Iesus Christ, faithfully translated into English, out of the authentical Latin, diligently conferred with the Greeke, and other editions in divers languages

      Antwerp: By Daniel Vervliet, 1600 Antwerp: By Daniel Vervliet, 1600. Late 17th-, early 18th-century English calf, with concentric blind panels on covers in contrasting tones of brown and tan, all edges deep red; covers with scrapes and bumps, rebacked with hinges (inside) strengthened, new endpapers with 1906 owner's inscription on front free one. Title-page dust-soiled and torn in upper margin with some loss of decorative border, page skillfully remargined with blank paper. Some foxing and age-soiling in early leaves; this similarly at rear (starting around p. 640 and most notable in Tables), with also some dust-soiling and with light waterstaining across a good number of upper outer corners. Overall a good to very good copy, sturdy and appealing.. Small 4to (21 cm; 8.25"). [18] ff., 745, [1] pp., [13] ff. The second edition of the Roman Catholic new Testament in English. The translation is the work of a number of English Catholic priests, but principally of Gregory Martin, who fled to France in 1568 because of persecution in their native land, and, under the direction of Dr. (later, Cardinal) William Allen, founded the English College at Douai. (The college moved for a short time to Rheims, but subsequently returned, as the title-page here attests.)The first edition of this translation was issued at Rheims in 1582, in over-sanguine hopes that its sale would be successful enough to underwrite the cost of a prompt production of the Old Testament. The two-volume O.T. did not appear, however, until 1609/1610.The second edition of the Rheims N.T. is a revision of the first, not merely a reprinting of it, and contains a "Table of Heretical Corruptions" not found in the 1582 printing and a new preface. In an era of noticeable decline in the art of printing, this Testament enjoys far better than average typography.

        I Prencipi di Giovanni Botero benese, con le aggionte alla Ragion di Stato nuouamente pofte in luce.

      Appreffo Gio[vanni] Domenico Tarino, 1600 - In Torino (Turin), Appreffo Gio[vanni] Domenico Tarino, 1600. 148 ff.-[16 ff. table (dernier feuillet de la table absent)], broché, couverture d'attente à partir d'une couverture du milieu du XIXème siècle, titre manuscrit à l'encre noire à la tête du dos, petite étiquette beige avec un chiffre manuscrit à l'encre noire contrecollée sur la queue du dos, manque de papier à l'angle inférieur externe de la première de couverture, ex-libris manuscrit à l'encre noire sur la tête de la première page de garde, deux ex-libris manuscrits à l'encre noire de l'époque de chaque côté d'une très belle gravure sur la page de titre représentant un lion allongé une patte reposée sur un blason, en médaillon entourée d'un cadre marqueté avec soldat et taureaux, bruniture dans l'angle inférieur externe des feuillets 14 à 19, angle inférieur externe du feuillet 16 avec un petit manque sans gravité, petite tache d'encre noire dans l'angle supérieur externe du feuillet 78, quelques mouillures dans les marges latérales et inférieures de certains feuillets, quelques traits à l'encre noire de l'époque dans les marges latérales, petites gravures en bandeau, lettrines historiées et culs-de-lampe, bon exemplaire. Première édition. Outre le titre principal, l'oeuvre contient également: ''Delle eccelenze de gli antichi capitani'', ''Della riputatione del prencipe'', ''Relatione del mare''. Giovanni Botero (1543 ou 1544-1617), jésuite jusqu'à son exclusion de l'ordre par sa hiérarchie en 1580, fut l'un des plus importants écrivains politiques de son temps. Son oeuvre principale ''Della ragion di Stato'' (''De la raison d'État'') (1589, édition remaniée en 1598) est la théorisation de l'action du Prince subordonnée aux preceptes de la religion chrétienne en vue de conserver le pouvoir à travers l'état. Cet ouvrage représente l'expression la plus importante de la réaction de la contreréforme contre tous les textes écrits et publiés au XVIème siècle, principalement contre ''Il principe'' (''Le Prince'') de Machiavel. Certains concepts et thèses furent repris et développés par William petty, Richard Cantillon, Adam Smith, David Ricardo et Thomas malthus. Dans l'oeuvre ici proposée,Giovanni Botero détaille l'exercice du pouvoir à travers la biographie de princes, de chefs de guerre et ajoute à la lumière de cette analyse du réel différents passages à son livre ''Della ragion di Stato''. Il est également l'auteur de: ''Delle cause della grandezza e magnificenza delle città'' (1588) ouvrage qui peut-être considéré comme le premier traitant de démographie, Relazioni universali'' (1591-1596).

        A Treatise of Monarchy: containing Two Parts. I. Concerning Monarchy in General. II. Concerning this Particular Monarchy. Wherein all the main questions occurrent in both, are stated, disputed, and determined. Done by an earnest Desirer of his Countries Peace

      1600-1682 Quarto, 7.5 x 5.75 inches. Third edition. A-H4. This is bound in green paper boards, the corners are rubbed, the spine ends pushed and rubbed. The boards are soiled and scratched with some light edgewear. The title page has "Harvard College Library Released" stamped with Wiliam Jackson's penciled intials. The reverse of the title has 'Harvard College Library 1913' stamped at head. Some foxing appears on a few pages in the text. Pages have been cut a bit short at the head in some places removing the top edge of chapter titles and page numbers, but not on every page. At the time of publication, it provoked a much better-known rebuttal, the 1648 Anarchy of a Limited and Mixed Monarchy by Robert Filmer. It was part of a pamphleteering exchange initiated by the royal chaplain Henry Ferne. Hunton was among the few who attempted to chart a 'middle course' between the royalists and the Long parliamentarians. In his Treatise, he cites both Charles Herle (a Parliamentary supporter) and royalist Henry Ferne (against whom much of the Treatise was directed). This was though only to contradict both, and chart a new position. He outlined a theory of active/passive obedience, and active/passive resistance, arguing that, unless the defense of the whole community is at stake, it is unlawful to actively/violently resist the most tyrannous and unlawful actions of the ruler[2]. According to William Haller[3], Hunton "...labors like the rest to unriddle an absolute basis for government, but falling into the dilemma when king and parliament are found hopelessly at odds, he candidly concludes that 'in this case, which is beyond the Government, the appeal must be to the Community, as if there were no Government: and as by evidence mens Consciences are convinced, they are bound to give their utmost assistance.' This was an admission which, however faithful to the facts of the moment, worked havoc to all accustomed political reasoning." Christopher Hill, however, calls him a "representative thinker"[4]. His is among the few major works of the period to provide a holistic theory of the balance of powers. While other writers would make the case for Parliament in the present circumstances[5], and as to why Parliament should be considered supreme (indeed, Herle admits, for example, that the realm was arbitrarily subject to Parliament), Hunton argued that no power in a 'mixed government' could be supreme, and all the powers were coordinate. Indeed, it was best to be 'undecided' about the relative strength of the powers, rather than to try and enforce the supremacy of one, as that would alter the structure of government. "Unlike some other Parliamentary supporters, in his reprisals, Hunton remained consistent throughout, as one can see in his Vindication of the Treatise of Monarchy of March 1644. Unlike Henry Parker, who arguably moderated some of his claims regarding popular sovereignty in Jus Populi (in the face of John Maxwell's January treatise and Ferne's work), and William Bridge (whose work takes on a distinctively more radical note), Hunton essentially repeats all his points unchanged. This, the third edition of this famous treatise which was first published in 1643, and again in 1680. Hunton argued that sovereign power did not reside wholly with the monarch, but was in the hands of King, Lords and Commons jointly. If one of these bodies attempted to seize more than its fair share of power, the others could defend their rights by force if necessary. It provoked an attack by Robert Filmer in his Anarchy of a Limited and Mixed Monarchy, 1648.

        Astrolabium. Americus Vespuccius, cum quattuor Stellis crucem silente nocte repperit.

      Antwerp - Beautiful impression from Stradanus' "Americae Retectio", circa 1600. The night scene depicts Amerigo Vespucci measuring the earth's circumference based on the constellation of the Southern Cross. The explorer is surrounded by various technological instruments and his sleeping crew. An inset includes a portrait of Dante Alighieri, who wrote about the same constellation in his "Divine Comedy". Johannes Stradanus or van der Straat, (1523-1605) was a Flemish artist but spent much of his life in Florence. Stradanus sent his original drawings of "Nova Reperta" ("New Inventions"), a Renaissance celebration of recent discoveries both scientific and geographical, to Antwerp where they were first engraved and published by Phillipe Galle. This edition was engraved by Adrian Collaert, who worked for Galle. Nice margins, slight glue residue to corners. View. Uncolored engraving. Images measures 7.25" x 10.75".

      Andreas Sanchez,, Madrid: 1600 - 8 hojas (una blanca), 438 folios. Encuadernación del siglo xix en plena piel con hierros dorados en lomo y planos. Cortes dorados. Mínimamente rozada en las puntas. Ejemplar muy correcto de márgenes aunque el papel de poca calidad presenta irregularidades y alguna mancha ocasional. Palau 48018, "Las obras de Castillejo andaban diseminadas, unas manuscritas, otras en ediciones de poco cuerpo y difíciles de encontrar. Su editor Juan López de Velasco, hizo un gran servicio a las letras castellanas reuniendo todo lo conocido, salvo el Sermon de amores, y algunas supresiones fáciles de comprender en el Diálogo de las condiciones de las mujeres". Salvá I, 526, "esta edición y la de 1598 son muy lindas y ambas copiadas de la primera de 1573." Reimpresión de la primera edición de 1573. Castillejo, fue el gran renovador de los géneros tradicionales, creando una lengua poética llena de gracia e ingenio, que hizo posible los diálogos de la comedia nueva. Fue el primero en traducir fábulas mitológicas completas, antes que Boscán y Hurtado de Mendoza, sirviendo el modelo a traducciones posteriores. Por sus ideales lingüísticos en verso y en prosa y por su actitud estética y crítica ante los temas y modelos, Castillejo es un escritor que, con algunos resabios medievales, pertenece a la nueva cultura renacentista.La Obras, aunque tuvieron amplia circulación manuscrita, no vieron la luz hasta 1573, en compañía del Lazarilo de Tormes y la Propalladia de Torres Naharro, todas expurgadas. En las Obras de amores recoge un pequeño cancionero amoroso a una dama llamada Ana, que se ha querido identificar con Ana von Schaumburg, a quien dedica en 1528 la Fábula de Piramo y Tisbe, en coplas castellanas; numerosos poemas de circunstancias o contra el Amor; glosas de romances, canciones, villancicos y motes; una imitación de Catulo, etc. Las Obras de conversación y pasatiempo recogen varios poemas satíricos o jocosos, como la Fiesta de las chamarras; la Fábula de Acteón, el Diálogo entre el autor y su pluma; la traducción del célebre epigrama de Poliziano, "A Hermafrodito". La composición que más ha interesado a los historiadores de la literatura, Reprehensión contra los poetas españoles que escriben en verso italiano, suavísima burla contra las nuevas formas métricas. En las obras morales y de devoción figura un interesante canto representable de la sibila; el Diálogo entre la Adulación y la Verdad y el extenso e importante Aula de cortesanos, diálogo sobre la vida en la corte entre el inexperto Lucrecio y el experimentado Prudencio, inspirado en obras de Eneas Silvio y de Henrich von Hutten.

        Jerusalem die heilige viereckete Stadt, in Grund gelegt und eigentlich abgemahlet

      Magdeburg: Andreas Duncker, 1600. unbound. Map. Woodcut. Image measures 11.5" x 14.75". Sheet measures 12.5 x 15". Hinged into mat. This historical plan of Jerusalem depicts the holy city as it was envisioned in biblical times. It shows a bird's-eye view of the city that includes the temples of King David and Solomon, the Temple on the Mount, and other significant locales. Bethlehem can be seen in the distance off in the upper left corner. Cardinal directions are written along each edge of the map, with west oriented to the top. The map appeared in the 1600 Duncker edition of "Itinerarium Sacrae Scripturae." It is in very good condition with some wear to the corners. German text on verso. Heinrich Bünting (1545-1606) was a Protestant pastor and theologian. His "Itinerarium Sacrae Scriptura" was a collection of woodcuts of biblical geography based on the travels of notable figures in the Old and New Testaments. This map is a seminal example of his popular work.

        Figvres de las Passion de Nostre Savver et Redempter Iesvs-Christ. Desseignées & grauées par Albert Dvrer, Alleman. Et Expliquées tres-elagamment en Latin & en Francois

      [France} [No publisher] c. 1600. Folio, 307 x 194 mms., consisting of undated title-page and sixteen plates, with the plates measuring 120 x 90 mms., with dates of 1504, 1507, 1508, 1512, etc., the plates having been excised from a printed book, mounted in a folding leaf open at top and bottom but closed on the sides, and placed by a former owner in a 17th century vellum binding; several of the plates have text on the verso, but the mounting makes it virtually impossible to read. Of the sixteen plates three have old tape marks the rest are good to very good, some lightly inked but, overall a good set This is the complete "Engraved Passion" of Albrecht Durer, printed in what appears to be an unrecorded French edition. There is no record of any edition of these plates with this title. All editions are very rare. Most were broken up in the eighteenth century for their plates. The title page appears to be the only evidence of the existence of this edition.

        L?Italia Divisee Suivant l?Estendue de Toutes ses Sourverainetes?

      Pieter Schenk, Copper engraved map, double page, hand colored, two uncolored pictorial cartouches, 47x57.5 cm (18 ½ x 22 ½ ). Some slight creasing near center, light soiling and some slight aging ; overall very good with an attractive impression.. Samson (1600-1667) is often referred to as the father of French cartography. Louis XIII was impressed with his work and appointed him ?Geographe Ordinaire du Roi? .During his career Sanson would produce about 300 maps, and his major atlas ?Cartes Generales de Toutes les Parties du Monde? would represent an important part of his body of work. While two of his sons continued publication of his maps after his death, Pieter Schenk (1655-1718), an important publisher and engraver in his own right, published this map. This map is attractively colored, and has two cartouches, one of which depicts Romulus and Remus sucking from a she-wolf. Bagrow p. 185. maphist.com

        Collection of Japanese Woodblock Prints (Ori Ehon) (Ukiyo-E)

      Hardcover. Very Good. Red decorative cloth over boards, royal folio (13-7/8 x 9-3/4 inches [35.3 x 24.7 cm]) containing well over 100 feet (54 feet each side) of mid 19th to early 20th century Japanese prints with 40 singles, 3 diptychs, and 28 triptychs in an ORI EHON (ORI - folding; E - picture; HON - book). With a good selection of different artists such as Yoshitoshi - Moonlight on the Ruin and a variety of Kabuki actors also being well represented along with some early Manga. Colors are bright and unfaded with most prints showing good register. Occasional offsetting and minor soil, a few prints noted with tiny amount of insect damage under magnification. Please inquire for a complete set of photos and/or a detailed description of individual prints. "ehon - or 'picture books,' in Japanese. ... are one of the true glories of Japanese art but are little known today, even in Japan, because of their great rarity ... their breathtaking exuberance, sophisticated artistry, sensuality, unparalleled originality, intellectual gravity, playful spirit, and lightness of touch. Ehon are part of an incomparable 1,230-year-old Japanese tradition. Created by artists and craftsmen, most ehon also feature essays, poems, or other texts written in beautiful, distinctive calligraphy. They are by nature collaborations: visual artists, calligraphers, writers, and designers join forces with papermakers, binders, block cutters, and printers. The books they create are strikingly beautiful, highly charged microcosms of deep feeling, sharp intensity, and extraordinary intelligence.The earliest ehon were made as religious offerings or talismans, but the great flowering of ehon began in the early modern period (1600-1868) and has continued, with new media and new styles and subjects, to the present."

        Manuscript Qur'an

      Western Iran or Ottoman Turkey: Signed by 'Abd al-Nahif al-Raji, Circa 1600. Arabic and Persian manuscript (36.8 x 24 cm) on thin cream paper with 10 alternating lines of fine naskh and nasta'liq script in black ink per page, illuminated double page frontispiece in blue, black, gold and other colours, surah headings in red muhaqqaq script, verse endings in gold illuminated rosettes, gilt stamped binding. Housed in a brown flat back cloth solander box. Safavid and Ottoman manuscript illumination was highly eclectic in the sixteenth and seventeenth century, reflecting the interactions of artists from all over the Islamic world. The illumination in this Qur'an shows the strong influence of Eastern Iranian traditions, an attested feature of a group of Ottoman manuscripts dating from c. 1520-50 (see in particular J. M. Rogers & R. M. Ward, Suleyman the Magnificent, London, 1988, cat. no. 19, p. 73). This influence is particularly visible in the lavish frontispiece of the present Qur'an, where the illuminated panels with black borders on both sides of the text and the large blue and gold hasps projecting into the margins from the centre of the smooth border are reminiscent of Herati and Bukharan work of the sixteenth century. The style of illumination, decoration and calligraphy in this manuscript demonstrates the frequent movement of artists between artistic centres in northern Persia and the Ottoman Empire. Certain features, however, particularly the lotus-shaped flowers in the gold cartouches of the frontispiece, and the colour palette of red, pale green, mauve and black throughout the illumination, are associated with Ottoman manuscripts of the period; the style of the naskh and thulth calligraphy also point to an Ottoman origin for this manuscript, although the interlinear translation indicates a significant Persian influence, where interlinear translations appeared more frequently in Qur'ans than in the more conservative Ottoman Empire. Perhaps the most striking feature is the illuminated gold ground, which is highlighted by the fine naskh script set in rows of wide cloud bands. The lavish use of gold would suggest that this Qur'an was once commissioned by a high-ranking member of society. The recto side of the first half of the double page illuminated frontispiece indicates the Qur'an should be read over the whole week, listing all seven days, starting with Friday (yawm al-juma') and ending with Thursday (yawm al-khamis). The recto side of the penultimate page is signed by an apparently unrecorded scribe, 'Abd al-Nahif al-Raji, while on the verso side, a later date of AH 1[1]15/ 1703 AD is located at the end of a note on the benefits of reading the Qur'an.

        Regis Pie Memorie Edwardi Tertii a Quadragessimo ad Quinquagessimum

      1600. Annotated Throughout by a Seventeenth-Century Reader [Year Book]. Edward III. Regis Pie Memorie Edwardi Tertii a Quadragessimo, Ad Quinquagessimum, Anni Omnes, A Mendis Quibus Miserrime Scatebant Repurgati, & Suo Nitori Restituti. Cum Indice Locupletissimo. London: In Aedibus Thomae Wight, 1600. 49, 2-31, 26, 36, 2-46, 2-28, 2-34, 2-26, 34, 27, 27, [26] ff. Folio (11" x 8"). Contemporary calf, blind rules to boards, rebacked, raised bands, lettering piece and blind ornaments to spine, endpapers renewed with marbled paper, lower corners repaired, ties lacking. Faint stains to boards, upper corners bumped and lightly worn. Title printed within woodcut architectural border, woodcut decorated initials. Light soiling to title page, signature of "W Gilpin" dated 1688 to head, annotations to margins in Gilpin's hand throughout text. A nice copy with annotations from the time of the Glorious Revolution. * Covers regnal years 40 to 50 of Edward III. With an index of cases, side-notes and cross-references to Brooke, Fitzherbert and other authorities. It is difficult to overestimate the importance of the Year Books. As a series of notes on debates and points of pleadings in Norman England they are of crucial primary sources for our knowledge of medieval common law. They also provide a richly detailed portrait of contemporary English life, customs and manners. The origin of the Year Books is unknown. Maitland believed that the earliest volumes were notes taken by law students in court copied for the use of pleaders in later cases. Holdsworth maintains that they were records of cases made by lawyers for personal use. Though it is not known when the first manuscript volumes were compiled, it is clear that cases can be found to date from the 1270's and the series continues to 1535. Marvin suggests that the Year Books are as old as the time of William the Conquerer. As Marvin has pointed out, these are the "venerable books" from which Littleton, Hobart, Hale and Coke drew "so much valuable ore, melting it into ingots and refining and sending it abroad as the correct coin of the Common Law." Printed editions of the Year Books were first issued by William de Machlinia between 1481 and 1482. The present volume belongs to the so-called "Quarto Edition." Not a set in the conventional sense, these volumes were i

        Illuminated Coptic Scriptures [Bible]

      Ethiopia: No Publisher Named, [1600]. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good. [ca 1600]An excellent Illuminated Coptic Bible from Ethiopia, approximately 400 to 500 years old, in Shittim wood boards, containing a portion of the Christian Scriptures. The Bible is housed in a handmade leather case, with hand lettering in black and in red, has string ties at the upper corner of some pages (providing place markers for a prior owners favorite passages or sections), and is beautifully illuminated in hand at the front and rear pages and at two internal pages. The Bible's boards are made of shittim wood (a type of acacia wood) which in turn is covered in a lovely decorative cloth, most of which cloth has survived the book's many years of handling. [Shittim wood likely was chosen for this Bible as it is native to the area and was the wood of which the Ark of the Covenant was constructed. See Exodus 25.] Previously owned by a nomadic Ethiopian, the owner would have spent time reading the book at night near the fire and both the book and the case still carry the campfire's aroma. Written in Ge'ez and in Very Good condition, the rear board is lacking some of the sinews that hold the book together, but the remaining sinews are holding well. The Bible's leather case would one have had a strap for carrying the encased book over the owner's shoulder as well as a strap of leather running across the front of the case into which the case's tongue would have been tucked, each of which leather straps is lacking. Also, as noted above, the decorative cloth covering shows some modest loss. A wonderful example of an Ethiopian Coptic Bible, beautifully illuminated. QUITE SCARCE.

        Coptic Scriptures [Bible]

      Ethiopia: No Publisher Named, [1600]. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good. [ca 1600] A Scarce Coptic Bible from Ethiopia, approximately 400 to 500 years old, in Shittim wood boards with a leather spine sewn on, containing a portion of the Christian Scriptures written in Ge'ez in red and black lettering and with numerous (apparently both contemporary and later) marignal notes in different hands. The Bible's boards are made of shittim wood, which likely was chosen for this Bible as it is native to the area and was the wood of which the Ark of the Covenant was constructed. [See Exodus 25.] Previously owned by a nomadic Ethiopian, the owner would have spent time reading the book at night near the fire and the book still carries the campfire's aroma. In Very Good condition, the boards each have been repaired with old stitching, and the pages show stains to the margins (and in some cases affecting text -- which remains legible) due to the centuries over which this book was handled, a bit of rubbing to the text here and there and four small holes to the leaves within the text block. A very nice example of an Ethiopian Coptic Bible, beautifully illuminated. QUITE SCARCE.

      xvi+1079 pages with over 500 pictures, 1600 diagrams, 700 games and indexes. Thick quarto (11 1/4" x 8 1/4") issued in grey cloth with silver lettering to spine and cover and two ribbon markers. Published for the Lasker Society. Introduction by Paul Werner Wagner. First edition.Twenty five top level authors contribute in detail Lasker's multifaceted life inside and outside the chess world. His chess carer has been analyzed by grand-masterly hands from the very beginning over the long time as a world champion to the surprising comeback in retirement. Six key chapters trace Lasker's life and work in Germany, England, the Netherlands, the United States, Cuba and Russia. For the first time Lasker's origin and childhood have been compiled in detail besides the volume offers and in-depth appreciation of the figure of Jacques Hannak who's 1952 biography of Lasker has decisively formed the Lasker image of many generations. Moreover Lasker's own creative activity as a journalist and author has been systematically researched. Reputable experts pursue Lasker's ambitions in the fields of mathematics, philosophy and drama. His achievements in the area of Bridge and Go as well as in the game invented by himself, Laska, are appreciated first hand, and friends of artistic chess don't loose out as well. One chapter each on Lasker's oeuvre in problem chess and in endgame studies round out the diversified work.Condition:A fine copy issued without jacket.

Gilbert uses here for the first time the terms "electricity," "electric force," and "electric attraction." Book I "deals with the history of magnetism from the earliest legends about the lodestone to the facts and theories known to Gilbert's contemporaries...In the last chapter of book I, Gilbert introduced his new basic idea which was to explain all terrestrial magnetic phenomena: his postulate that the earth is a giant lodestone and thus had magnetic properties...The remaining five books of the De magnete are concerned with the five magnetic movements: coition, direction, variation, declination, and revolution. Before he began his discussion of coition, however, Gilbert carefully distinguished the attraction due to the amber effect from that caused by the lodestone. This section, chapter 2 of book II, established the study of the amber effect as a discipline separate from that of magnetic phenomena, introduced the vocabulary of electrics, and is the basis for Gilbert's place in the history of electricity."-D.S.B., V, p. 397. This is an early issue of the first edition, containing manuscript corrections (in the author's hand?) on pages 22, 47, 130, and 221. The large woodcut plate in this copy is on an untrimmed sheet; usually it has been cut down. A really fine and crisp copy of this influential book, preserved in a morocco-backed box. Armorial stamp on verso of title. ❧ Dibner, Heralds of Science, 54.

        Conibas regio cum vicinis gentibus - very early [1600 undated] map of central Canada

      Cologne: America sive Novis Orbis, [1600]. 1st Edition. No binding. Very Good. SCARCE TO RARE EDITION VERY EARLY MAP OF CENTRAL CANADA Size: 6.7 x 8.5 inches. 17.0 x 21.5 cm. Uncoloured.& With wide margins. Paper very slightly age-toned. Very good condition. German text on verso. 1st German edition of this map.& "Wytfliet and Metellus produced the first separate printed maps of the Southern Hemisphere. Both are foundation maps of America and Australia. The Wytfliet is known to have been produced in 1597, the Metellus, which is much rarer and seldom available on the market, is usually dated 1598 but some scholars have argued the possibility that it may precede the Wytfliet. This interesting map is a slightly reduced version of Cornelis Wytfliet's 1597 map of the same title., The basic cartography derives from Gerard Mercator's world map of 1569, which first depicted a large body of water inland in the extreme north. There has been much speculation as to what this might refer to. It has been suggested that it could be a record of a voyage unknown to us that visited Hudson Bay, it could even be remnants of the Verrazano sea theory.& This is an early [1600] printed map of present-day central Canada. Published in the German edition of José de Acosta's De Natura Nova Orbis, first published in Salamanca, 1588. Acosta was a Spanish Jesuit missionary, historian and cosmographer. The included maps, however, are attributed to Metellus. In the America sive Novis Orbis of 1600, he is named as the cartographer of the maps but, most probably, did not see their completion as he died in 1597. The work was finished by Matthias Quad.& Reference: Kershaw #42&

Sixth Edition and the first to contain maps, preceded by four other London editions, the first in 1586, besides a reprint at Frankfurt in 1590. The present edition, dedicated to Queen Elizabeth, was extensively revised and enlarged by Camden himself, and includes a new section on coins. The great Elizabethan topographical-historical description of England consumed ten years' travel, study and effort. Camden had to learn Welsh and Anglo-Saxon in order to read both native and other historians, many still in manuscript, and to carefully peruse the public records. It was the present "much commended" edition that was coarsely attacked on grounds of originality and genealogical accuracy by the quarrelsome Ralph Brooke in his Discoverie of certain Errours. Camden further revised the Britannia in 1607, but the work was not translated into English until 1610. Of the nine full-page engravings, seven show coins and one depicts Stonehenge.
