        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.

      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.

        The Historie of Philip de Commines Knight, Lord of Argenton. [Translation by Thomas Danett, with dedicatory Epistle to Lord Burghley signed by him.]

      London: Imprinted at London by Ar. Hatfield for I. Norton, 1601 - Second edition in English of a primary source for 15th century European history. Commines has been called "the first critical and philosophical historian since classical times" (Oxford Companion to English Literature), principally for his shrewd and practical insight into the political realities of his day, his psychological insight, and his forthright account of the machinations of the politicians he described. His history is divided into 8 books, the first six of which deal with the reign of Louis XI; the last two deal with the Italian wars of Charles VIII, ending with his death Thomas Danett's English translation was first published in 1596. In his dedication to Lord Burghley, dated 1 Nov. 1596, Danett states that thirty years before he presented Lord Burghley and "the late Earle of Leicester my Lord" his 'historie of Commines, rudely translated into our vulgar toong,' and that he later revised and enlarged his translation at the request of Sir Christopher Hatton. According to the DNB, Danett (fl. 1566-1601) was also the author of the following works: "1. The Description of the Low Countreys and of the Prouinces thereof, gathered into an Epitome out of the Historie of Lodouico Guicchardini,' London, 1593, dedicated to Lord Burghley. 2. A Continuation of the Historie of France from the death of Charles the Eight, where Comines endeth, till the death of Henry the Second [1559], collected by Thomas Danett, gentleman,' London, 1600, dedicated to Lord Buckhurst. ." Second edition in English. Small folio. Title page within large historiated woodcut border bearing the royal arms and motto ("Honi soit qui mal y pense" ), the crest of Burghley, and the printer's beehive device; several large inital woodcut capitals throughout, and genealogical table in rear. [16], 364 pp. Bound in contemporary paneled calf central gilt lozenge, last nine leaves of genealogical tables have contemporary manuscript notes.

        La rissa di Bruttobuono (The Brawl of Bruttobuono).

      Roma, 1601 circa. Incisione in rame all'acquaforte e bulino, cm 35 x 50 circa (alla lastra) più margini; il nome dell'Autore, inventore e incisore della rappresentazione, ?F. Villoemena jn.?, è riportato in basso a sinistra, in lastra, su una sorta di cartiglio inserito nella scena che, in corrispondenza della zampa del cane, assomiglia a un sasso su cui la zampa anteriore alzata sembra stia per poggiare; al verso del foglio, a circa metà del lato destro (destro del recto e sinistro del verso), in corrispondenza del braccio sinistro in movimento di uno dei due uomini più spostati sulla sinistra della scena (quello che nella mano destra, più bassa, tiene pronto per essere lanciato un sasso), è presente la nitida filigrana della pigna d'uva sormontata da coroncina (o giglio). L'opera è anche nota coi titoli ?La baruffa di Bruttobuono? o ?La rissa dei popolani?. Il Villamena illustra qui, in una magnifica scena realizzata alla riconoscibile maniera dell'incisore, con una incisione caratterizzata da grandi figure e ampi tratteggi che molto lasciano alle parti bianche del chiaroscuro, un episodio di ordine pubblico realmente accaduto nel 1601: sullo sfondo una probabile campagna romana, e in primo piano lo scoppio di una lite, frequentissime in quel periodo a Roma, con l?intervento di un capopopolo per fermarla. Francesco Villamena (Assisi, verso il 1566 ? Roma, 1624), disegnatore, pittore e incisore al bulino, operò a Roma nel primo quarto del XVII secolo. Secondo la tradizione, fu allievo di Cornelius Cort, ne copiò le incisioni, e lavorò, in età giovanile, con Agostino Carracci. Realizzò poche incisioni come sue proprie originali, e riprodusse invece i disegni di molti artisti, tra cui Raffaello, Paolo Veronese, Federico Barocci, Girolamo Muziano e Giulio Veronese. Rara e importante incisione, presente al Gabinetto Nazionale delle Stampe di Roma. Esemplare ben impresso su carta fine, in ampi margini, ottimo lo stato di conservazione.

        De Arte Gymnastica Libri Sex…Quarta editione correctiores, & auctiores facti…

      Venice: Giunta, 1601., 1601. 4to. pp. 8 p.l., 308 [i.e. 326], [blank leaf], [26]index & colophon. woodcut printer’s device on title & at end. woodcut initials. 24 full-page or nearly full-page woodcuts (incl. 2 plans) & 1 smaller text woodcut. contemporary limp vellum, overlapping fore-edges (short tear in spine, light stains to first 2 leaves, some leaves lightly embrowned, piece missing from lower margin of I1). H.P.Kraus booklabel. Fourth Edition of this famous work, which long remained the standard authority on the subject. Mercuriale’s systematic study of gymnastics and related games as practised by the ancient Greeks and Romans also examines the therapeutic value of exercise. A physician and professor at Padua, Bologna, and Pisa, Mercuriale was one of the first therapists to remark that exercise could have both beneficial and harmful results depending on a variety of factors, including technique, intensity and duration. The first edition, printed by Giunta in 1569, was illustrated by a single folding engraved plan. To the second edition of 1573 was added an attractive series of fine woodcuts, showing boxing, wrestling, dancing, discus throwing, weight lifting, balancing, &c. The same blocks were used for subsequent Giunta editions, as here, as well as for the 1672 Amsterdam edition printed by Frisius. On the title-page of the latter, the woodcuts are attributed to Christoforo Coriolano, a craftsman from Nuremberg, who is further described in the preface to the reader as the illustrator of Vasari’s Vite de’ piu eccellenti pittori, scultori, e architettori (1568). Thieme-Becker, however, suggested that they are the work of another German woodcut artist named Christoforo Chriegher. Brunet III 1646. Graesse IV 495. Thieme-Becker 415. cfAdams M1320. cfBib.

        Petits Voyages. Pars I-XII. [Including:] Gasparo Balbi. Navigationis ex Alepo ad regnum Pegui usque, novem continuis annis [...] absolutae descriptio.

      Frankfurt, Erasmus Kempffer, 1601-1628.. Folio (220 x 317 mm). 12 books bound in 4 volumes. With 10 engr. title pages, 252 engraved illustrations, 3 engr. views, 17 engr. maps, and 3 armorial engravings. Bound at the end are 5 extra maps and views (including a world map and a view of Jerusalem) from Marino Sanuto's 1611 "Liber secretorum fidelium crucis". Slightly later Spanish limp vellum with ms. title to spine. Ties.. All twelve books of Theodore de Bry's "Petits Voyages", the greatest single collection of material on early voyages to the East Indies and considered unique in its extraordinary wealth of cartographical and visual material on Africa, India, and South Asia. Notably, book seven includes Gasparo Balbi's groundbreaking account of the Middle East, first published in 1590 as "Viaggio dell' Indie Orientali" - a mere 16 years before this present issue, making this the second appearance in print altogether and the first Latin translation. Balbi, a Venetian jewel merchant, travelled extensively in the Arabian Peninsula in search of precious stones. From Venice he sailed for Aleppo, proceeding to Bir and from there overland to Baghdad, descending the Tigris to Basra, where he embarked for India. While in the Persian Gulf, he studied the pearl industry, noting that the best pearls were to be found at Bahrain and Julfar. He refers to islands in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi (including Sir Bani Yas and Das) and to several coastal settlements that were to become permanently established, such as Dubai and Ras al Khaima. Balbi was the first to record the place names along the coast of modern Qatar, the United Arab Emirates and Oman. Practically "none of the names of places on the coast between Qatar and Ras al Khaima occur in other sources before the end of the eighteenth century" (Slot). - A composite set, nine books in their first, the remaining three in their second edition. As several of the travellers were Protestants and their works banned by the Catholic church, this set was censored by the Spanish inquisition of Granada in 1708 (cf. vol. II, verso of title). Condemned authors are identified on the title pages, and various passages considered too crude or suggestive have been struck out or obliterated. In vol. X, a marginal note on p. 27 attempts to refute an account denouncing the cruelty of the Spanish in America. - Last in the library of Jean-Paul Morin, with his bookplate on the first flyleaf. Rather browned throughout, with occasional slight edge defects; two title pages are repaired. Wants a total of 11 plates, as well as the appendix on the Congo in vol. II and the Notice to the Reader in vol. IV. Balbi's section is complete and well preserved, with only two minor censorship marks. The only comparable copy in recent trade history is the Macclesfield set in contemporary gilt calfskin, auctioned off at Sotheby's in 2007 and currently offered by a U.S. dealer consortium for $150,000: that copy, however, is incomplete, wanting the final volumes XI and XII - the latter of which is "so rare that even Church lacked much of the text". - Brunet I, 1334.

        Amour tirannique, tragi-comedie

      Scudery, M. de (Georges) (1601-1667). Amour tirannique, tragi-comedie. Paris: Chez Augustin Courbe, imprimeur & libraire de monsieur frere du roy, dans la petite sale du Palais, a la Palme, 1639. Original edition. Reference: Tchemerzine X, 267. (Lancaster discusses a Paris: Courbe edition without the prefatory Discourse by Sarrazin and with a Priv of 23 February 1639, a printing of 2 February. He argues that the inclusion of the Discourse required a new printing with the May and July dates). Quarto. Old wrappers. Leaf of frontis after Carol le Brun, verso blank; leaf of title, verso blank; 4p dedication a Madame D'Aiguillon; leaf Discourse de la tragedie; 2p a Messieur de l'Accademie; 23p Discourse de la tragedie; 1p acteurs; 110p text; 2p priv 2 May 1639, acheve 2 July 1639. Collation: []1, e2, A-C4, A-P4. (G3 missigned D2, H2 missigned F2). Dampstains, heavy in spots, L2 damaged margin extending 1" into text, loss of a few words. A few words or names crossed off of printed title. One of the major tragedies of the author. Cardinal Richelieu championed this as a rival to "Le Cid."The source of the plot, according the Batereau, is Tacitus' (XII, ch 51) account of the Armenian prince Rhadamistus and La Calprenede's tragedy Mort de Mithridate (1636) both set before the wall of a besieged town in Asia Minor. For most critics L'amovr tiranniqve now seems like an attempt to rival Corneille's El Cid, 1637. Scudery wanted to improve on El Cid which he had criticized* by "setting a stage in such a way that there could be no doubt as to the location of the action, by leaving no room for criticism that one of his leading persons was unconnected with the main plot." (Lancaster). Scudery's play, unlike Corneille's, is a melodrama not a tragedy (although the early editions of Corneill's play identify itself as a tragicomedy, see Tchmerzine). Scudery's play completely adheres to the unities.** At the end of the play he brings to life the person who was supposed to have been killed. Also, the villain repents at the end. The ending was created to counteract the criticism he had made of Corneille's play which did not, he felt, show the proper, uninterruped triumph of good versus evil. Scudery's play has some scenic qualities and vivacity of a melodrama, especially when the assault of the moors is in preparation. It certainly was a popular success, acted four times before Richelieu and the dedicatee the duchess d'Aiguillon. The prefatory Discourse de la tragedie by Sarrazin praises the play by noting that the action rises to the point where grandeur is given to the play, that the unities are kept. He would prefer to call the work a tragedy, in accordance with Greek usage which allowed such a classification, even if the ending were happy. *Corneille's El Cid while highly approved by the public, was attacked by Cardinal Richelieu and his followers who procured a judgement against it by the Academie drafted by Chapelain (Sentiments de l'Acad?e sur le Cid, 1638) criticizing El Cid on point of style and grammar. **According to Isaac D'Israeli (11 May 1766 - 19 January 1848) "Scudery first introduced in his 'L'Amour Tyrannique' a strict observance of the four-and-twenty hours which he drew from Aristotle; and in a preface by Sarrasin the necessity and advantages of this rule was urged; a regulation which the free spirit of the British muse has not submitted to."

I Metodisti rifiutavano l';egemonica comprensione delle cause anatomiche e fisiologiche delle malattie del corpo umano, e la loro medicina fu basata sull';individuazione di alcuni sintomi generali, sullo sviluppo della scienza farmaceutica sull';igiene. Esemplare con gore d';acqua agli angoli superiori delle prime 15 carte e piccolo foro di tarlo all';interno delle stesse; piccole traforature di tarlo al margine inferiore delle carte successive; altra piccola traforatura al margine interno inferiore e superiore e lieve gora agli angoli delle ultime carte. Altrimenti esemplare fresco e marginoso.

Intérieur en bon état général, traces, petites mouillures marginales. Charnière fendu, dos décollé. BIOGRAPHIE & THEME: Première édition de cet ouvrage de référence. En effet il s'agit de l'écrit le plus célèbre d'Herrera. En effet dans son Historia general de los hechos de los Castellanos en las islas y tierra firme del Mar Oceano (Madrid, 1601-1615), il relate l'histoire des colonies espagnoles en Amérique de 1492 à 1554. Sa position de chroniqueur royal lui a permis de consulter de nombreuses sources aujourd'hui disparues même s'il a pu à l'occasion s'inspirer largement des travaux de ses prédécesseurs, principalement de Bartolomé de Las Casas. Il fit preuve de beaucoup de prudence dans l'utilisation des divers documents mis à sa disposition et le résultat de ses recherches est dans l'ensemble précis et précieux pour l'étude d'une part de l'histoire des premières colonies espagnoles mais aussi des institutions et coutumes des peuples américains autochtones.
