        THE HISTORIE OF THE WORLD, COMMONLY CALLED THE NATURALL HISTORIE OF C. PLINIVS SECVNDVS

      London: Adam Islip, 1601. First Edition. Hardcover. First title page with early signature and neatly laid down on paper. But for the missing preliminary matter, a Fine copy, bright and clean. Two folio (8-1/4" x 12-1/2") volumes bound in one in early full tree calf leather with a gilt-decorated spine and a red morocco gilt-lettered spine label, recently and neatly rebacked; [42], 614, [42] + [12], 632, [84]: Lacks several leaves: the front and rear blanks, The Dedicatory Letter, The Preface to the Reader, the errata leaf to the first volume, The Preface or Epistle Dedicatorie to Prince Vespasian, and the advertisement leaf at the end. Translated from the Latin original by Philemon Holland. THE FIRST EDITION IN ENGLISH of this foundational book of science, the greatest scientific work to emerge from the Roman Empire. In 37 books, Pliny compiled an encyclopedia of the accumulated wisdom of his time in fields as diverse as mathematics, physics, astronomy, geography, ethnography, medicine, zoology, anthropology, physiology, philosophy, history, agriculture, mineralogy, art history, and literature. "The 'Natural History' of Pliny the Elder is more than a natural history: it is an encyclopedia of all the knowledge of the ancient world.... Over and over again it will be found that the source of some ancient piece of knowledge is Pliny" (PRINTING AND THE MIND OF MAN). Among the many diverse subjects discussed by Pliny are mermaids, wine, witches, herbal medicines, skin care, and aphrodisiacs ("if the seed of that Mallow that runneth up in one stalke; bee reduced into powder and strewed upon that part of a woman which Nature hath hidden, shee will bee so wood after the companie of a man, as she will never be satisfied nor contented with embracing"). "As a purveyor of information both scientific and non-scientific, Pliny holds a place of exceptional importance in the tradition and diffusion of Western culture" (DICTIONARY OF SCIENTIFIC BIOGRAPHY). Pforzheimer 496. The Natural History is among the single largest literary works to survive from antiquity. It is also the only work extant of the 132 written by Pliny, an indefatigable seeker of knowledge who lost his life in 79 A.D. while trying to observe at close hand the eruption of Vesuvius.

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. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 601/66. STC 18417 (noting quires A-G printed by Stafford, paraph 2 and quires H-Q printed by Kingston). TIELE-MULLER, p.144. HOWGEGO N13.

        Umbria overo Ducato di Spoleto

      Carta geografica tratta da "L'Italia" a cura di Fabio Magini, edito a Bologna tra il 1620 ed il 1640. La carta del territorio di Terni e Spoleto è senza dubbio più tarda rispetto alle altre due carte della regione. Numerosi i ritocchi presenti nella lastra, che quasi certamente fu realizzata nel 1601 dall?Arnoldi e ritoccata nel 1607 dal Wright. Le fonti usate dall?autore sono senza dubbio inedite, non rilevando nessuna analogia con le precedenti carte a stampa del Mercator e dello Giubilo. Tuttavia la carta dipinta nella Galleria Vaticana da Egnatio Danti ricopre circa lo stesso territorio descritto dal Magini. Si può quindi ipotizzare che l?opera sia il frutto della rielaborazione di più fonti, come usuale per il Magini. "This map showing the territories of the towns of Terni and Spoleto was certainly made at a later time than the other two representing the Umbria region. The plate was probably engraved by Arnoldi in 1601 and the finishing touch was given by Wright in 1607. There are no similarities with previous maps, so this work can be considered as a compilation of different sources, as is the usual case with this author. Slightly spoiled at margins, overall in very good conditions.-Italy according to Magini: a cartographical model for posterity- Giovanni Antonio Magini was born in Padua in 1555, dedicating himself to the study of astronomy from an early age. In 1588 the Senate of Bologna appointed him Lecturer of Astronomy at the local university, choosing him instead of Galileo Galilei. His friendship with the Duke of Mantua, Vincenzo Gonzaga, helped Magini in his quest to obtain cartographical material for map-making from the various sovereigns ruling the different italian states at that time. Because of Magini's early death in 1617 this effort was made known by his son Fabio when he published the atlas ""L'Italia"" in Bologna in 1620. This is the first example of an italian atlas and is made up of 24 pages of descriptive text and 61 maps of the italian peninsula. Although this work was published posthumously, it can be entirely ascribed to Magini. He began drawing this maps around 1594, with the one depicting Bologna and its surrounding territories being the first. They were all printed before 1620 in draft editions which were then revised and updated for the final version. These draft proofs are extremely rare, although sometimes available for sale, and exhibit substantial differences in respect to the maps finally included in the atlas. Two of the most famous engravers of the time, Arnoldo Arnoldi and the englishman Benjamin Wright, were entrusted by Magini to engrave the plates. As we shall see in the presentation of the separate maps, they derive from different sources, both known and unknown, and therefore represent the result of an original work of critical analysis and compilation. This atlas had an important influence on the cartography of the italian peninsula for the following two centuries, beginning from Ortelius and going on to the principal dutch cartographers and editors. From the 1620 edition of ?L?Italia?." Bologna Bologna Almagià pagg. 68/70. 465 375

        Vedute di giardini

      Suite di 8 incisioni all?acquaforte, 1601, firmate e datate in lastra in basso. Esemplari di probabile secondo stato con l?indirizzo di Mattheus Greuter aggiunto in basso. Bellissime prove, impresse su carta vergata coeva con filigrana ?cerchio con tre monti? (simile a Briquet 11933 e presente in quattro incisioni), rifilate al rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. La suite dei giardini del Maggi unisce elementi di fantasia a particolari architettonici esistenti in Roma, quali la Basilica di San Lorenzo fuori le Mura, Villa Medici e i Giardini del Quirinale. Disegnatore ed incisore romano, è autore della Bichierografia, una raccolta di 1600 disegni per vetri realizzata nel 1604 e dedicata al Cardinale Francesco Maria del Monte. Nel 1609 concluse un accordo di lavoro con l?editore Giovanni Orlandi , realizzando molte incisioni di chiese. Le sue lastre sono citate nell?elenco di vendita del Vaccari del 1614. Importante la sua opera di incisore di paesaggi e antichità, come la serie: Libro di tutte le guglie, (1600) e Ornamenti delle fabbriche antiche e moderne dell?alma città di Rome,1600. Il Gandellini riporta sull'autore le seguenti parole: "romano, pittore di paesi fu buon disegnatore, e buon prospettivista, ed intagliò ad acquaforte molte vedute ben intese, e con buon gusto formate; molte facciate di chiese di Roma. Fece anche una prospettiva grandissima di Roma ricavata, e disegnata in piano, con tutte le strade, piazze, chiese, palazzi, e case private, la qual'opera non potendo quel pover'uomo finire per mancanza di denaro, ne ridurre a quella perfezione, a cui l'avrebbe ridotta , se avesse avuto commodo, fu poscia intagliata in legno da Paolo Maupin. Intagliò insieme con Domenico Barriera diverse fontane di Roma, di Tivoli, e di Frascati. Disegnò le nove chiese, che si visitano per l'Indulgenza, colla chiesa di S. Maria del Popolo, e loro Altari Privilegiati; ma da altri furono a bulino intagliate. Il Maggi fu uomo allegro, e faceto, mentre inventava, e raccontava le più bizzarre cose del Mondo, e fuor di modo ridicole, ed ebbe la vena nella poesia burlesca. Morì a Roma sopra i 50 anni, ed operava nell'anno 1609". Rarissima serie. Suite of 8 etchings, 1601, signed and dated at lower edge. Examples in what seems to be the second state, with the address of Mattheus Greuter on lower part. Beautiful works, printed on contemporary laid paper with ?circle with three mountains? watermark (like Briquet 11933 and seen in four more engravings), trimmed to platemark, in excellent condition. Maggi?s suite of the gardens combines fictitious elements with architectural details that really existed in Rome, such as the Basilica of San Lorenzo outside the Walls, Villa Medici and the Gardens of the Quirinale. A Roman illustrator and engraver, he realized the collection called Bichierografia, 1600 drawings for windows which he finished in 1604 and dedicated to Cardinal Francesco Maria del Monte. In 1609 he signed a working agreement with the publisher Giovanni Orlandi, for whom he realized engravings depicting churches. His plates have been mentioned in Vaccari's selling list of 1614. His production of landscapes and antiques engravings was very significant, such as the series: Libro di tutte le guglie, 1600 ( depicting the spires of Rome) and Ornamenti delle fabbriche antiche e moderne dell?alma città di Roma, 1600 (depicting the decorations of ancient and modern factories in Rome). Gandellini wrote about this artist that he was a very skilled Roman painter, illustrator and engraver, mentioning some of the subjects he realized, especially the churches one has to visit to receive the Indulgence, such as S. Maria del Popolo. He also related about a huge perspective work depicting the city of Rome and the fact that Maggi was not able to finish it for he had not enough money to carry on with the project as he had wished; for that reason, it was finally carved on wood blocks by Paolo Maupin. Gandellini mentioned also the fact that the artist worked together with Domenico Barriera to depict fountains in Rome, Tivoli and Frascati. He closes the description of Maggi mentioning the fact that he had been quite a good-humoured man, who enjoyed funny stories. The series presented hereby is very rare. non citate nei repertori consultati. Dimensioni 223x150.

        TRATADO DE LA IMPORTANCIA Y UTILIDAD QUE AY EN DAR POR ESCLAVOS A LOS INDIOS REBELADOS DE CHILE. DISPUTASE EN EL, SI ES LICITO, O NO EL DAR LOS POR ESCLAVOS: Y PONENSE RAZONES POR AMBAS PARTES, Y SUS RESPUESTAS: DEXANDO LA DETERMINACION A LOS SEÑOR

      [Np, but likely Madrid. nd, but ca. 1601].. [2],24pp. Folio. Dbd. Dampstained and soiled, top and bottom edges worn. Worm holes throughout, affecting a few words on each page. Contemporary underlining and marginal lines throughout, contemporary handwritten folio numbers on each recto. Still a good copy. In a half morocco and cloth box. An extremely rare treatise which considers the question of whether rebellious Indians in Chile should become slaves. Addressed to the Viceroy and Audiencia of Peru, the work discusses whether slavery of conquered Indians is just or not, reviewing arguments on both sides of the question. Calderón approaches the problem in an intriguing manner by providing separate justifications, each in its own individual section of the text, for enslaving the Indians from the various points of view of the King, the Kingdom, and the Church. In turn, the author then provides responses to these various assertions, promoting the view that such slavery would be unjust. The last pages of the text consist of final responses and commentary. Calderón, the Canon of the Cathedral of Santiago, also served as Commissar of the Holy Office and the Holy Cross, and the General Vicar of the Bishopric of Santiago. He addresses the TRATADO... to the Viceroy of Peru, as well as numerous representatives of the royal government and the Catholic Church who have convened to consider strategies for waging war against the Araucanian Indians of Southern Chile. The campaign to conquer these Indians was one of the most difficult and drawn-out conflicts between Europeans and American Indians in the colonial period, lasting from the mid-16th to the mid-17th centuries. The appearance of this treatise followed a particularly harsh setback for the Spanish in 1598 when "a general insurrection forced the Spaniards to evacuate all the territory to the south of the river Bio-Bio. The epilogue to this story is symbolic: Governor Martin García de Loyola, husband of Princess Beatriz and former conqueror of Tupac Amaru, was put to death, and his head was paraded on the tip of an Araucanian pike" (CAMBRIDGE HISTORY OF LATIN AMERICA). In looking toward an end to hostilities with the Indians, the author hopes that the Viceroy and the Audiencia Real will be able to answer his query quickly. In order to assist these officials in considering these issues, he presents the various arguments in as orderly a fashion as possible. Arguments justifying slavery of the native populations include the principle that military victors who have not been compensated otherwise should receive the economic reward of possessing slaves. This is particularly true, it is noted, given the violent transgressions that the Indians have committed. It is also noted that as slaves, the Indians are able to be instructed in the Christian faith. In contesting the justifications for enslaving the Indians, the author notes the difficulty of differentiating those natives who were fighting the Spanish and those who did not engage in conflict. Calderón adds that many Indians have shown obedience to the crown and the church, have ridden themselves of their old tribal leaders, and have suffered greatly during the conflict with the Spanish. A fascinating work documenting both sides of the debate in the early 17th century concerning the legitimacy of enslaving conquered native populations. Extremely rare. OCLC records a single copy, at the National Library of Chile; RLIN adds one additional copy, at the Bancroft. Recognizing both the rarity and significance of the text, Medina provides a transcription of the entire work in his BIBLIOTECA HISPANO- CHILENA. MEDINA (BHC) 195. PALAU 39732. OCLC 55243154.

      S.l. [Geneve]: Pour Jaques Chouet, 1601. relié. In 16. Nouvelle édition. Elle fut imprimée pour la première fois en 1584, in 4, à Paris. Ses réimpressions furent moins nombreuses que pour la première semaine. Cette dernière n’est pas référencée par Tchemerzine. Demi Veau début XIXe. Dos lisse orné de filet. Titre doré. 2 manque au mors supérieur sur 1 cm. Mouillures pâles jaunes marginales. p. 480 à 503 Mouilllure brune et brunissures plus prononcées. La seconde de semaine est écrite suivant le même principe que la première semaine ou création du monde. C’est une sorte de poème encyclopédique qui suit le déroulement de la Genèse. Le poème renvoie à de nombreuses notes qui le commentent. La poésie de Bartas eut un immense succès en son temps, peut-être parce qu’on y trouvait également une foule d’enseignement sur les anciens, la science, et les inventions. Goethe en fut un fervent admirateur , elle eut moins de succès par la suite en France, qui la jugea bonne dans ses idées mais trop débridée à son goût. L’édition comprend les abondants et érudits commentaires de Simon Goulart. La seconde semaine demeura inachevée puisque seuls les deux premiers jours ont paru. Cependant des éditions plus tardives publieront des inédits. - Pour Jaques Chouet, S.l. [Geneve] _1601, In 16, (24) 583pp. (17), relié. - relié

        HISTORIA DE LAS GRANDEZAS Y COSAS MARAUILLOSAS DE LAS PROUINCIAS ORIENTALES. SACADO DE MARCO PAULO VENETO, Y TRADUZIDA DE LATIN EN ROMANCE, Y ANADIDA EN MUCHAS PARTES POR DON MARTIN DE BOLEA Y CASTRO...DIRIGIDA A DON BELTRAN DE LA CUEBA, DUQUE DE ALBURQUE

      Caragoca: Por Angelo Tauano, 1601.. [180] leaves. Original limp vellum, contemporary ink title on spine. Contemporary ink signature on titlepage, mild tanning. An internally clean and bright copy. In a half morocco and cloth box. A rare early 17th- century Spanish edition of Marco Polo's description of his journey across Asia in the late 13th century, one of the most significant and resonant travel accounts in the history of human endeavor, and a key text in the perception in Europe of the East during the late Middle Ages and the Renaissance. This edition, printed in Zaragoza in 1601, is the first edition of the Spanish translation by humanist Martin Abarca de Bolea y Castro of Marco Polo's travel narrative, which replaced the antiquated Spanish version first printed by Cromberger in Seville, 1503. Bolea y Castro, the son of the vice-chancellor of Spain under Charles V and Phillip II, was a scion of one of Aragon's leading families. A lover of literature and humanist ideology, with a predilection for numismatics, Bolea y Castro spent some time serving in Spain's military, although the exact length of his service is not known. Interestingly, this rare translation is his only prose work. Born into a prominent Venetian trading family, Marco Polo (1254-1324) departed with his father and uncle toward the East in 1271, travelling through Syria, Jerusalem, Turkey, Persia, and India, to China and the court of Kublai Khan. Marco Polo became a favorite of the Khan and travelled throughout China over the next fifteen years as an emissary of the Mongol emperor. Polo returned to Venice in 1295, only to be briefly imprisoned in Genoa as a prisoner of war a few years later. During this imprisonment, in 1298, he dictated his adventures to Rusticiano (also called Rustichello) of Pisa, and the text became known as IL MILIONE. (The exact meaning of this term in Polo's time is still unclear, although it may refer to the popular belief regarding the traveller's great riches.) The original work was written in Franco-Italic, and was quickly translated into Latin and other languages by court clerks. Over one hundred extant manuscript versions, translations, and adaptations are recorded. First printed in a German language edition in Nuremberg in 1477, a Latin translation followed circa 1485 (Christopher Columbus possessed a copy of this Latin edition). The immense popularity of Polo's account is reflected in the numerous editions which followed printed in German, Latin, Portuguese, Spanish, French, English, and Dutch. Polo's account includes vivid descriptions of cities, waterways, architectural monuments, industries, natural resources, plants, and animals as well as reports on customs and traditions. In addition to Cathay and Mangi (the Mongol name for South China), Polo also writes of the native societies he visited in Tibet and southwestern China. Donald F. Lach, in his magisterial study, ASIA IN THE MAKING OF EUROPE, writes that "other Europeans lived and worked in China during the thirteenth century, but Marco Polo was the only one, so far as is known, to travel and work there and to write an account of his experiences. For the first time in history Europe possessed a detailed narrative about China and its neighbors based upon more than hearsay and speculation...Marco Polo provided Europe with the most comprehensive and authoritative account of the East produced before 1550." A fascinating 17th-century Spanish edition of Marco Polo's travels, one of the most celebrated travel accounts of all time. OCLC records a single copy in Germany at the Bayerische Staatsbilbliothek. PALAU 151209. OCLC 81177641. Lach, ASIA IN THE MAKING OF EUROPE I, Book 1, pp.34-38. HOWGEGO P124-P126 (Polo). PRINTING AND THE MIND OF MAN 39 (Venice 1496 ed. of Polo).

        De vocis auditusq organis historia anatomica

      Baldino Ferrara: Baldino, 1600-1601. No Dust Jacket. Beautifully Illustrated Classic of Comparative Anatomy Casserio, Guilio (1552-1616). De vocis auditusque organis historia anatomica. Folio. 2 parts in 1 vol. [60], 191, 126, [2]pp. Fine and unusual engraved titlepage, portraits of Casserio and of the Duke of Parma, and 33 (of 34) exquisite anatomical plates, paginated in the text. Our copy is one of those printed with a blank verso 2M3 in part 2 instead of plate XII, considered by researchers to be an earlier issue; a facsimile of this plate is tipped in for continuity. [Ferrara: Victorio Baldino, 1600-1601.] 386 x 264 mm. Vellum c. 1601, spine and margin of back cover repaired, light wear. A little light browning and offsetting, occasional faint dampstains, otherwise a very good copy. First Edition. Casserio was a student of Fabrici, and succeeded him in the chair of anatomy at the University of Padua. Like Fabrici, Casserio attempted to explain human anatomy by reference to the lower animals, and his De vocis, containing the first comparative studies of the vocal and auditory organs, represents one of the sixteenth century's most ambitious investigations in comparative anatomy. The work is divided into two treatises, on the anatomy of the larynx and on that of the ear. In the first, Casserio compared the human vocal apparatus to those of other mammals, birds, amphibians and even insects. He recognized the larynx to be the principal organ of voice, gave the first precise description of the cricoid-thyroid muscles and accurately depicted the superior and inferior laryngeal nerves, which he correctly assumed to originate from cranial nerves. He also was the first to understand the complex sound-producing organs on the abdomen of the cicada. In the second treatise, Casserio provided the first detailed comparative account of the auditory ossicles, the first adequate description of the mammalian osseous labyrinth, and the first representation of the ear of the fish--this last all the more remarkable in that, up to this time, no one had believed fishes to possess a sense of hearing. None of De vocis's full-page engravings, including the title engraving and portraits, are signed. The drawings for them have generally been attributed to the German painter and etcher Joseph Maurer, on the basis of a passage (cited in Choulant) in the treatise on the ear; however, recent research indicates that the engraved title and two portraits are most likely the work of Jacopo Ligozzi (1547-1626), who also illustrated specimens for the Bolognese naturalist Ulisse Aldrovandi. In accuracy and artistry, the anatomical illustrations rank with the woodcuts of Vesalius, and, like the Vesalian illustrations, they provided a model and a standard for subsequent draftsmen.
