        THE IOURNALL, OR DAYLY REGISTER, CONTAYNING A TRUE MANIFESTATION, AND HISTORICALL DECLARATION OF THE VOYAGE, ACCOMPLISHED BY EIGHT SHIPPES OF AMSTERDAM, UNDER THE CONDUCT OF IACOB CORNELISZEN NECK ADMIRALL, & WYBRANDT VAN WARWICK VICE-ADMIRALL, WHICH SAYLED FROM AMSTERDAM THE FIRST DAY OF MARCH, 1598. SHEWING THE COURSE THEY KEPT, AND WHAT OTHER NOTABLE MATTERS HAPPENED UNTO THEM IN THE SAYD VOYAGE

      London: John Flasket, 1601. 19th-century mottled calf, double-fillet gilt border on boards, spine gilt in compartments, gilt leather label. Boards and spine slightly worn. Titlepage and plates mounted to larger sheets; printed pages of text inlaid in larger sheets. Engraved plates annotated in ink with corresponding "page" (leaf, recto or verso) of text. Lacking the dedication leaf (paraph 2) and leaf Q4 (blank), pages shaved (with occasional slight loss of text in lower margin), rust hole in leaf P3 (affecting a few letters on recto), tear in leaf Q3 (repaired, not affecting text). Overall, a very good copy, with the 1860 engraved bookplate of the Library of the Earls of Macclesfield on front pastedown, shelf marks inscribed on verso of front free endpaper. Embossed stamp of the Earls of Macclesfield in upper extended margins of titlepage leaf and following two leaves of text. The first English edition of Van Neck's account of his 1598 voyage to the East Indies, translated from the 1601 Amsterdam edition of the author's HET TWEEDE BOECKE. The Dutch navigator, who represented the Verre Company, commanded three ships which were part of the first successful Dutch trading voyage to the region. The other two ships were commanded by Wybrand Van Warwijck and Jacob Van Heemskerk. Van Neck's vessel became separated from the other two after rounding the Cape of Good Hope, and the three did not reunite again until his arrival in Java in late December 1598. Unlike his Dutch predecessor, Cornelis Houtman, who three years earlier had seized the port of Bantam, Van Neck dealt diplomatically with the natives. "Rather than rejecting the inflated prices asked by the local ruler, he offered to pay over the odds in order to cement a lasting relationship...Van Neck's was the most profitable of the pre-VOC [Dutch East India Company] voyages. Despite the apparently high price paid for spices, he netted a profit of 300 per cent on his overall costs. In 1601, fourteen fleets comprising sixty-five ships sailed for the East Indies, but by that time competition between rival Dutch operators, as well as with the Portuguese, had inflated prices and none were as successful as Van Neck's first enterprise" - Howgego. While focused on activity in the East Indies, EUROPEAN AMERICANA notes that the text includes references to Brazil and tobacco from the West Indies. Van Neck's account was popular throughout the first half of the 17th century and was reprinted and translated into German and French as well as English. It also appeared in collections of voyages such as those by De Bry, Hulsius, and Colijn. This extra-illustrated copy includes nineteen engraved plates from the Amsterdam 1619 edition of Van Neck's HISTORIALE BESCHRIJVINGHE published by Michiel Colijn. The images are mounted on separate sheets and bound in the book at the appropriate portion of the text. The engravings are annotated in ink, indicating the appropriate page (i.e. recto or verso of a specific leaf) related to the image. A rare book on the market. Prior to this copy from the Macclesfield sale in March 2007, the last copy previously available was sold at the Boise Penrose sale in 1971. Both EUROPEAN AMERICANA and STC record only two copies in the U.S., at the Huntington and NYPL, the latter noted as imperfect.

        La Grande Chronique.de Hollande, Zelande, Westfrise, Utrecht, Frise, Overyssel & Groeningen (etc.)

      De l'Impression de Jacob Canin chez Guillaume Guillemot, Dordrecht 1601 - " FIRST EDITION. Folio, 3 parts in 2 vols., pp. (xxii) 650 (ii) ; 240 (xviii), (xvi) 780 (misnumbered 779) (xvi). Roman letter, Italic side notes, text in double column. Woodcut floriated and grotesque initials, both titles within splendid engraved architectural border with the instruments of learning above, of the arts, sciences and war at sides, and scenes depicting mercantile and maritime activity beneath, full-page portrait of the author and 57 three-quarter page engravings of emperors, governors and other important figures, including Elizabeth I and Robert Dudley, by Christoph von Sichem. Contemp autograph of 'Simeon Mahon, Chartain' (Chartres) and autograph of 'Challine Boilleau' on title-page, Nicolas-Joseph Foucault's engraved armorial bookplate on pastedowns, C19 armorial bookplate of the Earl of Macclesfield on fly, Shirburn Castle blindstamp to head of first three ll. of both vols. Closed tear (original paper flaw) in plate on A1 vol 2, I1 verso and I8 recto printed upside down, R2 inserted in the wrong place, paper flaw in Mm3 vol 2, light age yellowing, a few sheets browned, printers ink thumbing in a few margins. A very good copy, with generally very good impression of the plates, in contemporary calf, covers bordered with a single gilt filet, gilt laurel oval at centers, spines with raised bands blind ruled with gilt fleurons at centers, title gilt lettered in compartment, all edges of vol 1 yellow, those of vol 2 blue, head and tail of spines a little chipped, covers a little scratched. First edition of this highly important and beautifully illustrated history of the Dutch Republic, printed privately for the author. The commendatory verses include one in Dutch by Nicholas Doublet. Although the author covers the whole of the country's history up to 1600, about two thirds of the text is devoted to the C16th., making it one of the most detailed sources for the struggle for Dutch independence. Le Petit lists some 160 authors whose works he employed in his compilation, but much of its value lies in his use of mss. and original documents, and thus in his account of events otherwise unrecorded in printed histories. Le Petit's own history reflects the unsettled nature of the times he wrote on: although born in 1546 at Béthune into a noble Belgian family, he later abjured Catholicism and fled to Holland where he served William Ist, Prince of Orange. By 1598 he was living in Aix-la-Chapelle where he wrote his "Grande Chronicle" and dedicated it to the Estates-General of the United Provinces. An account of the reputed Swiss engravers, Christoph von Sichem Sr. and Jr., is given in Nagler II pp. 309-11. The portraits are generally finely engraved and are often expressive and vital, especially the superb full page portrait of the author after the title. About 16 pages in vol. I describe the geography of the New World, the supposed origins of its native inhabitants, the voyages of discovery, the conquest of the Indians, the climate, agriculture and resources of the Americas, their colonization, government and the missions, and the shameful treatment of the Indians by the Spaniards. Further pages deal with the expeditions of the Dutch to the East Indies and their commerce and colonization there. In vol. II Drake's exploits against the Spaniards in the New World are recorded. "Cette chronique, écrite en mauvais français, est fort curieuse pour les nombreux faits qu'elle relate, et que l'auteur a puisés aux sources originales . Il dit dans son épitre dédicatoire qu'il a décrit les choses après les avoir vues sur les lieux, et promet d'être beaucoup plus exact que Guichardin qu'il contredit souvent" (Nouv. Biog. Gén.). "En revanche la valeur historique du 2e vol., qui embrasse la période de 1556-1600, est incontestable; il contient, à coté d'extraits de plusieurs auteurs antérieurs, beaucoup de détails et de particularités qu'on chercherait vainement ailleurs."

      Venice, G. B. Ciotti, 1601 - 3 parts in one vol, 4to (201 x 143 mm), pp [xl] 356 [recte 384], with engraved title, 6 engraved and 25 woodcut illustrations, and woodcut ornaments and printer's device (on title to third book); a few gatherings lightly browned, a fine copy in contemporary limp vellum, from the Colbert library with inscription 'Bibliothecae Colbertinae' on title, gilt arms of Aremberg family on upper cover. £6000Second edition, revised (first 1595-6, impossibly rare), of the 'first Italian book on obstetrics. It is a work of importance for the study of the history of Caesarean section; in it Mercurio advocated the Caesarean operation in cases of contracted pelvis' (Garrison and Morton 6144). It is notable for containing the first illustration of Caesarean section, as well as an illustration and description of the 'Walcher position' and a description of bimanual version. 'The numerous illustrations are particularly striking, especially those depicting caesarean section, an operation on the living advocated by Mercurio for patients with a contracted pelvis. The uterine pictures are crude and uninformative, but those showing the postures favorable for delivery are remarkably vivid and realistic' (Cutter and Viets, A short history of midwifery, p 220).'La Commare is divided into three books, the first dealing with natural labour, care of the pregnant woman and of the new born child. The second book takes up abnormal presentations and their management, and the third section deals with various maladies which may occur to the parturient woman and the new born child.' (Thoms, Classical contributions to obstetrics and gynaecology, pp 105 et seq.).The first edition, 1595-6, is exceptionally rare, with no North American locations in OCLC, nor is it in Wellcome or Waller. The second is rarer than assumed. This is because the third edition, with title-page also dated 1601, is not normally distinguished from the second. The second edition, the only edition revised by Mercurio, has pagination as above, with the title-page to the third part dated 1600. The third edition is paginated xxxvi 407, the dedication is dated 1604, and the title to the third part is dated 1606. OCLC conflates the two.Provenance: Jean Baptiste Colbert (1619-1683), Louis XIV's minister of finance and the creator of the Académie des Sciences and other cultural institutions of France.

Encadernação da época inteira de pele com ferros a ouro na lombada; e com desgaste na dianteira da pasta posterior. Girolamo Mercuriale, também conhecido por seu nome latino Hieronymus Mercurialis (1530 1606) foi um médico italiano famoso por seu trabalho De Arte Gymnastica . Nascido na cidade de Forlì, filho de Giovanni Mercuriali, também um médico, foi educado em Bolonha e Pádua e Veneza, onde recebeu seu doutorado em 1555. Em Roma fez contactos que deram acesso livre acesso às grandes bibliotecas, onde, com entusiasmo arrebatador ele estudou literatura clássica médica dos gregos e dos romanos. Os seus estudos sobre as atitudes dos antigos em relação à dieta, exercício e higiene e o uso de métodos naturais para a cura da doença culminou com a publicação de seu De Arte Gymnastica (Veneza, 1569). Com suas explicações é considerado o primeiro livro sobre medicina desportiva. Ele foi chamado para ocupar a cadeira de medicina prática em Pádua em 1569. Durante este tempo traduziu as obras de Hipócrates e armado com esse conhecimento escreveu De morbis cutaneis (1572), considerado o primeiro tratado científico sobre doenças de pele ; De morbis mulieribus (Sobre as doenças de mulheres, 1582); De morbis puerorum (pediatria, 1583); De oculorum et Aurium affectibus ; e a Censura e dispositio operum Hippocratis " (Veneza, 1583). Em 1573 foi chamado a Viena para tratar o Sacro Imperador Maximiliano II. O imperador, satisfeito com o tratamento que recebeu (embora ele estava a morrer três anos depois), fez dele um conde palatino imperial. Em 1575 o Senado de Veneza concedeu-lhe um contrato de seis anos como professor na Universidade de Pádua. Embora ele foi amplamente saudado como um herói da cidade, a sua reputação seria criticada pela incapacidade de conter o surto de peste em Veneza, em 1576-1577. No entanto Mercuriale procurou salvar a sua reputação nos anos seguintes com a publicação em 1577 da obra De Pestilentia, o seu tratado sobre a praga, que havia sido uma série de palestras na Universidade de Pádua. Mercuriale foi um escritor prolífico, embora muitos livros que lhe são atribuídos fossem compilados a partir das obras dos outros. Mercuriale voltou a Forlì em 1606 e morreu há alguns meses depois. Entre seus muitos discípulos foi o botânico suíço Gaspard Bauhin . Em 11 de Março de 2009, o Museu Olímpico em Lausanne organizou um colóquio na Faculdade de Medicina da Universidade de Genebra, em comemoração do 400 º aniversário da morte de Girolamo Mercuriale . Girolamo Mercuriale, also known by his Latin name Hieronymus Mercurialis ( 1530 1606) was an Italian physician, most famous for his work De Arte Gymnastica. Born in the city of Forlì, the son of Giovanni Mercuriali, also a doctor, he was educated at Bologna and Padua and Venice, where he received his doctorate in 1555. In Rome, he made favorable contacts and had free access to the great libraries, where with sweeping enthusiasm, he studied the classical and medical literature of the Greeks and Romans. His studies of the attitudes of the ancients toward diet, exercise and hygiene and the use of natural methods for the cure of disease culminated in the publication of his De Arte Gymnastica (Venice, 1569). With its explanations concerning the principles of physical therapy, it is considered the first book on sports medicine. He was called to occupy the chair of practical medicine in Padua in 1569. During this time, he translated the works of Hippocrates, and, armed with this knowledge, wrote De morbis cutaneis (1572), considered the first scientific tract on skin diseases; De morbis mulieribus ("On the diseases of women") (1582); De morbis puerorum ("On the diseas

Mit Porträt und 83 teils wiederholt. Holzschnitt-Illustrationen. Pergamentbd d. Z. mit handschriftl. Rückentitel.

      Frankfurt, Romani Beati Erben, 1601. - Seltene erste deutsche Ausgabe des frühen physiognomischen Werkes. "Della Porta preceded Lavater in attempting to estimate human character by the features. He was the founder of physiognomy and this is one of the earliest works on this subject" (Garrison/Morton zur lat. Ausgabe von 1586). Porta (1535-1615) war neapolitanischer Arzt, Universalgelehrter und Dramatiker. Durch seine Methodik und Objektivität gilt er als einer der ersten Naturwissenschaftler im modernen Sinne. Im Jahre 1558 veröffentlichte er die „Magia naturalis", die ihn bekannt machte. Eine von ihm zwei Jahre später in Neapel gegründete Gesellschaft zur Erforschung der Natur, die "Academia Secretorum Naturae", mußte auf Befehl des Papstes wieder aufgelöst werden. Endgültig berühmt machte ihn seine 1563 erschienene profunde Schrift über Kryptologie mit dem Titel "De furtivis literarum notis" (Anmerkungen über versteckte Buchstaben). Das vorliegende Buch, 1586 unter dem Titel "De humana physiognomia" erschienen, ist Portas zweites Hauptwerk. Seine Beschäftigung mit Magie und Physiognomie führte 1592 dazu, daß er sich vor der Inquisition zu verantworten hatte. Daraufhin zog er sich von wissenschaftlicher Arbeit zurück und wandte sich der Literatur zu. Seine Komödie "La Trappolaria", eines von vielen erfolgreichen dramatischen Werken, erschien 1596. – Nach VD17 Variante B mit der Kustode "XX Figur" statt nur "XX" auf dem letzten Blatt des "Register" genannten Inhalsverzeichnisses. – Titel mit kleinem altem Adelsstempel.

We are prone to think today of physiognomy as antiscientific, but it was in fact a way of emphasizing the dependence of behavior on body, a sort of physiological psychology." - Diamond 23.5.Porta's PHYSIOGNOMONIA is also often a very amusing work, and its charming illustrations which explore the analogies between the various human types and their animal counterparts, can deliver many a bracing gasp of recognition, and more than a chuckle or two.

        Creta; Sardinia; Corsica; Insula Maris Ionii. "Creta Iouis Magni, medio iacet insula ponto

      Greece: Antverpiæ"/Antwerp.. "Apud Joannem Bapt. Vrintium" Jan Baptist Vrients. 1601. Copper engraved map of Ancient Crete from "The Parergon " of Ortelius' "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum" 1601 edition; black & white. Latin text to verso. The map shows ancient Crete in the lower half with 3 smaller maps above of Corsica, the Ionian Islands & Sardinia, in ancient times. Good dark impression; some soiling and spotting mainly to blank margins; light creasing to centre fold and two horizontal creases to lower blank margin; very short tears to lower edge and corners somewhat ragged. Abraham Ortelius,[ 1527-1598] Flemish Cartographer . produced the first modern Atlas "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum" in 1570. printed by Aegidus Coppen Diest. There were numerous editions thereafter with texts in various languages; the printing of such was taken over by Chrstoffel Plantijn in 1579 . Ortelius himself drew all the maps in manuscript before passing them to the printers. there is conjecture that he may have engraved some of the plates as well The 1595 Latin text edition is the most complete produced during his lifetime, containing all the maps of the 1593 edition plus those of the the"Additamentum" and the"Pareragon" or Ancient geography. The " Additamenta" were supplements to the original Atlas; at the same time Ortelius replaced some maps with new ones showing the same place; some plates were also reworked . Ortelius was Geographer Royal To Phillip II of Spain from 1575. He also worked closely with Braun & Hogenburg on the "Civitas Orbis Terarum". After his death the plates were purchased by Jan Baptiste Vrients in 1601 who published further editions until 1612.

Cui accessit Continuatio Usque Ad Annum Christi MCXLI . per quendam eiusdem coenobii eruditum. Subjectus in calce operis Index verum satis locuples

      Francofurti, [i.e. Frankfurt]: Typis Wechelianis Apud Claudium Marniu & Heredes Joannis Aubrii, 1601. [8], 696pp, [24]. Contemporary seventeenth-century calf, with double blind-rule to boards and gilt dotted-roll to edges. Expertly and sympathetically rebacked to style, with original morocco lettering-piece laid down. Lightly rubbed to surfaces, corners of boards exposed with loss of calf, lacking original ties. Bookplates of T.P. Young and Minster Acres library to FEP. Rebacking has revealed fragment of manuscript on vellum binder's waste used in the construction of the original binding. Early ink inscription of Chas. Le Gros to title. Some marginal loss to fly-leaves, with later (nineteenth century?) manuscript reference to the authorship of this work in Nicholson's history, else internally clean, crisp and well margined. The Flores Historiarum (or 'Flowers of History') chronicles in Latin the history of England from the creation through to 1326. It's authorship, undoubtedly a collaborative effort in the later medieval period, is unknown - early ascriptions to 'Matthew of Westminster' were set aside in Victorian times when English historian Henry Richard Luard identified that this was in fact Matthew Paris - but likely the work of several monks at the Abbies of St. Albans and Westminster sucessively. Edited by Archbishop Matthew Parker for its first appearance in print in1567, and an almost immediate successor edition of 1570, the text of this Frankfurt edition reprints the later. This early English chronicle was particularly valued for its detailed account of the events in Britain in the aftermath of the reign of King John, including the signing of the Magna Carta. The identity of either early owner of this work T.P. Young eludes us, but another example of the bookplate of T.P. Young is apparently also to be found on the a copy of Jonson's Workes (part 3), STC 14754, at the Huntington Library. . Second Edition. Folio.
