Ellizabethan Law Enforcement William Lambarde (1536-1601) was an antiquary and lawyer, who, among his many accomplishments, compiled the earliest county history, THE PERAMBULATION OF KENT (1576).His appointment as a justice of the peace for Kent in 1578, provided Lambarde with the background of experience which led to the present work; and it has long been regarded as the standard authority on the subject It is of great value not only for the study of criminal procedure in Elizabethan England; along with its companion, THE DUTIES OF CONSTABLES, it offers also a window into the society and mores of the age of Shakespeare and his Constable Dogbody."He [Lambarde] praised English justice, but was sharply critical of the shortcomings of the juries, which had led government to circumvent them through such agencies as Star Chamber, and thus curtail liberty. Extolling the blessings of peace and deploring the disorders attendant on war, he showed a dislike of foreigners and inveighed, among other things, against ale houses, vagabonds, and engrossers, but he made little reference to national problems and none to felony or murder." (ODNB)Both EIRENARCHA and THE DUTIES OF CONSTABLES, were continually reprinted, updated and expanded, and the two are frequently found bound together. "Editions of this [i.e., THE DUTIES] are generally bound with editions of the Eirenarcha that are roughly contemporary, but not necessarily of the same year" (STC).

        Magna Charta, cum statutis, tum recentibus, maximopere animo tenendis, iam nouiter excusa,& summa diligentia emendata & correcta. Cui adiecta sunt nonnulla Statuta, nunc demum tipis aedita

      Londini: Thomas Wight, 1602 A rare printing of the Magna Carta in contemporary full leather binding, originally belonging to Thomas Athew (or Athowe), who was a lawyer who contributed a legal brief to Lady Anne Clifford's inheritance dispute in the early 17th century. She described him as 'a great antiquary'. This printing is the first 17th century printing of Magna Carta. The binding has lost its title label and is worn with fraying to the top of the spine, wear to the bottom of the spine and corners and scuffing to joints. It is sound. Page edges red. The endpapers are from a manuscript - part of the rear pastedown is missing and they are split at the joints. There is a large armorial bookplate of John Perrett which covers the whole of the reverse of the front endpaper and the edge of the title page. Athew has signed the title page three times - one dated 3rd November, 1623, and made a small note. Contents: To the Reader 2pp (with decorative initial capital); First Table 2pp; Second Table 6pp; Magna Charta text - with large decorative initial capital. Text varies between Latin, French and English. The pages have brown toning and occasional marking. The title page and following page have a small nick in the paper at the side. Athew has made margin notes against sections in pages 187 and 188 (Discentes and Condicions). A very scarce work with an interesting past.

        Americae Nona & Postrema Pars.

      Frankfurt Matthias Becker 1602. - Folio, 362 pp., with 1 map outside collation; (1) f., xxv numbered plates; 100 pp (misbound after plates); (1) f., XIV plates. Bound in later vellum. Blank lower margin of title and following 2 leaves re-margined; typical light browning to text leaves almost always seen in this series, but generally not affecting maps and plates, which are in very good impressions. Good. First Latin edition of the ninth part of the De Bry’s Grand Voyages, containing an extremely important account of a Pacific voyage by Olivier van Noort -- as well as much ethnographic material relating to the indigenous Indian culture of Mexico and Peru. As the importance of the America material in all of the De Bry volumes is extremely well-known -- "the cornerstone of every library of Americana" (Penrose) --, let us focus on the Pacific material. Like the earlier parts of the De Bry series, this volume provided the majority of European readers with the first detailed illustrations of many of the locales described, particularly of the Philippines and other Pacific locales. In fact, according to Lach, the van Noort account contains "the earliest first-hand Dutch descriptions of the Ladrones (Marianas), the Philippines, and Borneo." -- Asia III.1.442. On the political front, it was the first publication to inform Europe that the Spanish monopoly of the Pacific was being aggressively challenged by the Dutch, including an illustration showing the battle of Manila. Van Noort journeyed to the Moluccas via the Straits of Magellan, entering them in September of 1599 but, owing to disastrous weather conditions in that precipitous region, it did not reach the Pacific until the end of the following February. Continuing along the coast of Chile, he stopped at Peru, New Spain, and eventually reached the Mariana Islands, Manila, Borneo and Java. "Van Noort describes the Ladrones very much as did the earlier Spanish writers: the people are superb swimmers, incorrigible thieves, live without law, hold women in common, and subsist on bananas, coconuts, sweet potatoes and sugar cane, which they gladly trade for pieces of old iron. The Dutch writer reports on the visible damage suffered by many of the islanders from the Spanish pox (syphilis). the Dutch were impressed and somewhat bewildered by the vast number of Philippine islands. To thread their way from the San Bernadino Straits to Manila they seized both native canoes and a Chinese junk to obtain pilots. They notice the usually naked and tattooed natives, the houses on stilts, and the many boats and ships which bring what is called tribute from the outlying islands to the Spanish at Manila. From a captured Chinese pilot they learned much about Manila’s size and fortification and about its large Chinese settlement. Luzon is thought to be larger than Scotland and England combined." -- Lach, III.1.442. Chirino (Cartography of the Philippines) includes 4 maps in the present volume, all notable for their early date: #9 Ladrones insula descriptio; #10 Quid in Ladrones insula Hollandis acciderit; #11 De sinu Baye la Baye, which he terms the "first scene of Albay in southern Luzon province, where Admiral van Noort paused on route to Manila. Dutch ship is anchored in the bay, with a tattooed native holding a bow and arrow, while another wears shorts"; #13 Hollandorum cum Hispanis ante Manillam pugna navalis. The van Noort was first published in Dutch, in editions of 1601 and a corrected edition of 1602. As the first Latin edition, this account in the de Bry series was the first to gain a general European readership. * Church 168; Griffin, Bibliography of the Philippines, p. 24; Medina XXX; Chirino, Cartography of the Philippines p. 20 & pp. 79ff.

        The Workes of our Ancient and lerned English Poet, Geffrey Chaucer, newly Printed

      London: by George Bishop,, 1602. To that which was done in the former Impression, thus much is now added. 1 In the life of Chaucer many things inserted. 2 The whole Worke by old Copies reformed. 3 Sentences and Proverbes noted. 4 The Signification of the old and obscure works proved: also Caracters shewing from what Tongue or Dialect they be derived. 5 The Latine and French, not Englished by Chaucer, translated. 6 The Treatise called Jacke Upland, against Friers: and Chaucers A.B.C. called La priere de nostre Dame, at this Impression added. Folio in sixes (326 × 220 mm). Early nineteenth-century tan calf, spine with five raised bands, blind rules and motifs in compartments, gilt lettered in second panel and dated at foot, sides panelled in blind, red edges. Title in woodcut compartment (McK & F 232), copperplate progeny leaf incorporating portrait of the author, woodcut arms, woodcut of the Knight at head of text; black letter. Gift inscription of George Dundas to William Macdowall dated 1825 on front free endpaper. Skilfully washed at time of binding, small paper repairs to lower corners of progeny leaf with slight lost of engraved matter at lower inner corner, an excellent copy, clean, tall and well-margined. Second Speght edition, including the first appearance in print of the ABC; a variant has Adam Islip's name in the imprint. The schoolmaster Thomas Speght (d. 1621) had the help of the antiquary John Stow and his 1598 edition is essentially a revision of Stow's own edition of 1561. Nevertheless Speght's extensive apparatus and glossary were by far the most elaborate yet, giving Chaucer the dignity a classical author might receive. Speght was criticized, though not always accurately, by Francis Thynne, son of the earlier Chaucer editor William Thynne, and he responded in this new edition by departing more decisively from Stow. This edition was reprinted with a few minor alterations in 1687 and remained in use after Urry's much maligned 1721 edition, forming the basic text for Tyrwhitt's 1770s edition. "With a period of influence stretching from the late sixteenth century to the late eighteenth, then, Speght's Chaucer has been the most durable of any Chaucer edition" (ODNB).

        The Bible, That Is, The Holy Scriptures, Contained in the Old and New Testament: Translated According to the Ebrew and Greeke, and Conferred with the Best Translations in Divers Languages (3 Volume Set)

      London: Imprinted ... By Robert Barker. 1602. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" Tall (tall thick). F First Edition Thus. H Full Leather. Very Good. Slight scuffing and rubbing to covers (modern leather; chiefly to midsections); tape repair to foredge of title page (volume 1, at upper right corner), repair to title page of volume 3 (nearly all except upper left corner; with blank from unidentified similar volume); slight wear to foredges of few leaves (chiefly to corners); slight internal browning and/or foxing (chiefly to edges and preliminary leaves). [ca. 300] pages per volume (including interleaving). Title on spines: Holy Bible. The so- called "Geneva" Bible (including the apocryphal books), plus the translation of the New Testament by Laurence Tomson; divided into 3 volumes, with interleaved blank pages for marginal commentary, virtually all with ink annotations in several (at least 3 or 4) unidentified 17th or possibly 18th century holograph hands. The third volume also contains two "tables" (i.e., references to personal names) at rear, also interleaved (and with a few holograph entries, chiefly alphabetic guides). Also notable for the few copperplate engraved illustrations (particularly the chief title page). Wing STC (2nd edition) #2185; Herbert #268; BMC, volume 2, page 1263, column 91. Pagination as follows: [12], 240, [1]; [4], 242- 486, [1]; [6], 489-626 (i.e., 636), [17] pages plus extra leaves. Provenance: Possibly from the library of the noted translator John Healey (died 1610), famous as the translator of St. Augustine's "City of God"; holograph signature at upper right corner of the first volume's title page reads "J. Hea" (remainder lacking due to wear and to tape repair); holograph hand in some of actual text volumes resembles this signature); remaining holograph entries on interleaved pages unidentified, but evidently that of a divine and/or scholar of the period, with abbreviated references to former translations and/or commentaries (chiefly in Latin); also particularly noteworthy for the interleaved commentary (in English) on the text of Matthew 5: 13 ("doxology" at the end of the Lord's Prayer). 3 volumes complete; bound uniformly in full dark brown modern calf, gilt- stamped and decorated spines, new cream endpapers, all edges trimmed and stained red-brown. Nice, tight set in an austere, modern heavy calf fine binding.

Compasta por mandado do muito catholico e invencivel Monarcha de Espanha dom Filipe Rey de Portugal of primeiro deste nome. Por Diogo do Couto Chronista e guarda mòr da torre do tombo do estado da India.

      Lisbon, Impresso por Pedro Crasbeeck, no Collegio de Santo Agostinho, 1602. - Woodcut royal arms on title, woodcut initials. (12), 207 ll. [but lacks T3-4]. Folio (27.3 x 18.3 cm.), eighteenth-century cat's-paw sheep (some wear, rubbed), spine gilt with raised bands in six compartments, citron leather lettering piece in second compartment from head, gilt letter, text block edges marbled. Old inscription scored in lower margin of title page. Overall in very good, albeit incomplete condition, lacking two leaves. Ownership inscription of Antonio Leite on recto of front free endleaf. ---- FIRST EDITION of a major early work on Asia: "as a pioneer Orientalist, Diogo do Couto ranks with João de Barros" (Boxer p. 17). Continuing Barros' history (@Decades I-III appeared 1552-63), Couto wrote @Decades IV through XII. This fourth @Decade covers the years 1526-36. Barros had left copious material for a volume to follow his third @Decade; his manuscript was edited by João Baptista Lavanha and published in Madrid, 1615, with the title @Quarta decada da Asia de João de Barros. Although Barros's fourth @Decade covers the same ground as Couto's it is an entirely different work.Couto (Lisbon 1542-Goa 1616), spent the better part of 50 years in India, which gave him a different perspective than that of Barros, for Couto was often personally acquainted with the scenes, events and persons described in his work. "The sententious generalities of the majestic Barros are replaced by bitter protests and practical suggestions. He is a critic of abuses rather than persons. He writes from the point of view of the common soldier, as one who had seen both sides of the tapestry of which Barros smoothly ignored the snarls and thread-ends . . . He can, however, write excellent prose, and he gives more of graphic detail and individual sayings and anecdotes than his predecessor" (Bell, @Portuguese Literature p. 196). Couto's manuscripts of the @Decades suffered at the hands of enemies and the elements; one was on a ship captured by the English, another two were stolen, one vanished, and one lay unpublished until 1788. The fourth @Decade was the only one that was published immediately upon its completion.There is a variant issue with a somewhat different title page, which reads: @Decada Quarta da Asia, dos feitos que os Portugueses fizeram na conquista e descobrmento das terras, & mares do Oriente: em quanto governarão a India Lopo Vaz de São Payo, & parte de Nuno da Cunha. Compasta por mandado do invencivel Monarcha de Espanha dom Felipe Rey de Portugal of primeiro deste nome. Por Diogo do Couto Guarda Mòr da torre do tombo do estado da India. The verso of the title page of the present copy contains a "Carta de su Ma- // gestade pera Diogo do Couto // Chronista & guarda mór da torre do Tombo do esta- // do da India."; it is blank in the variant issue. The rest of both issues appear to be from the same setting of type, except that the variant contains the signature 2, while this signature is absent from the present copy.---- Arouca C712 (the present issue).

General title-page and 3 part-titles, all 4 with the same woodcut device (sun in scrollwork cartouche), 4 folding engraved maps (ca. 25×18.5 cm) showing Europe, Asia (including Japan), Africa and the Americas, by Girolamo Porro. Contemporary limp sheepskin parchment.

Corrected 1602 edition, in the original Italian, of a pioneering physical, political and even economic geography of the known world, the most extensive of three landmark publications in the development of Western thought written by Giovanni Botero (1544-1617). Botero is now recognized as one of the greatest economists of his time. In some ways he even anticipated Malthus, predicting that the European population would outgrow its food supply, and paved the way for Humboldt's scientific approach to studying the world as a whole. His present geography enjoyed great fame and influence, in part through translations into almost every European language, and it remained the leading geography of the world for more than a century.The four maps of the continents by Girolamo Porro (with North and South America together) were probably an optional extra, so many copies do not include them. With an early owner's inscription struck through on title-page. With mostly marginal worm holes in five quires of part 3, occasionally affecting a few letters of the text, and some faint stains on the title-page, but otherwise in very good condition. Binding slightly rubbed, ties gone.

And Now Enlarged

      London: Thomas Wright, 1602 - William Lambarde (1536-1601) was an antiquary and lawyer, who, among his many accomplishments, compiled the earliest county history, THE PERAMBULATION OF KENT (1576). His appointment as a justice of the peace for Kent in 1578, provided Lambarde with the background of experience which led to the present work; and it has long been regarded as the standard authority on the subject It is of great value not only for the study of criminal procedure in Elizabethan England; along with its companion, THE DUTIES OF CONSTABLES, it offers also a window into the society and mores of the age of Shakespeare and his Constable Dogbody. "He [Lambarde] praised English justice, but was sharply critical of the shortcomings of the juries, which had led government to circumvent them through such agencies as Star Chamber, and thus curtail liberty. Extolling the blessings of peace and deploring the disorders attendant on war, he showed a dislike of foreigners and inveighed, among other things, against ale houses, vagabonds, and engrossers, but he made little reference to national problems and none to felony or murder." (ODNB) Both EIRENARCHA and THE DUTIES OF CONSTABLES, were continually reprinted, updated and expanded, and the two are frequently found bound together. "Editions of this [i.e., THE DUTIES] are generally bound with editions of the Eirenarcha that are roughly contemporary, but not necessarily of the same year" (STC) Later edition of Eirenarcha (first published 1581); later edition of The Duties (first published 1583). 2 works bound in one volume vols., Small thick 8vo.

        Hieroglyphica, Seu de Sacris Aegyptiorum, Aliarumque Gentium Literis Commentarii

      Paul Frelon 1602 - B00AEWIQ82 In Latin. 1602 Sumptibus Pauli Frelon (Lyon, France), massive 9 5/8 x 15 1/4 inches tall x 2 1/2 inches thick hardbound, green marbled boards over white leather spine, four raised bands and gilt-lettered crimson leather label to spine, numerous woodcut engravings throughout the text, [14], 644,p [44], 47, [2] pp. Lacking original blank endpapers, but otherwise complete. Boards are rubbed, stained and edgeworn. Staining/charring to upper fore page edges, with minimal staining to the effected margins. Paper repairs to margins of title page, which is soiled, foxed and ink-marked, with a one-inch closed tear toward the top of the page. About a dozen other pages have paper repairs, mostly to fore margins/edges. Occasional dampstaining, browning and foxing, especially to margins, throughout, with a few pages darkened but nonetheless quite legible. Altogether, a nicely preserved early edition of the first Renaissance dictionary of symbols and hieroglyphs, written by Italian Renaissance humanist Piero Valeriano Bolzani (1477-1558) during a frenzy of popularity surrounding the rediscovered 'Hieroglyphica' of Horapollo. Also includes Valeriano's 'Sacerdotum Barbis,' a witty, 48-page defense of the growing of beards by ecclesiastical dignitaries, described as one of the first full western works on beards. Note that this is a heavy, oversized volume, so contact us for overseas or priority shipping rates. ~J~ 'Hieroglyphica' was something of a forerunner to European emblem books, as European studies of the era assumed that Egyptian hieroglyphs were emblems, and imaginatively interpreted them accordingly. In fact, as Mario Praz has pointed out, in this period emblems were normally seen as the modern equivalents of sacred Egyptian signs. Valeriano's work therefore includes not only hieroglyphs and emblems, but also elements drawn from classical Greek myth, the Latin Cabala, hermeticism and the Christian religion. Valeriano was born in Belluno, in northern Italy, in 1477. His family was poor, and he did not learn to read until age 15. An uncle invited him to Venice, but he instead went into the service of a noble for support, and was tutored in various languages by Giorgio Valla and introduced by his uncle to Aldus Manutius. Valeriano travelled to Rome in 1509 and was introduced to Cardinal Giovanni de?Medici, later Pope Leo X. After gaining the favor and protection of the Medici family, Valeriano took holy orders and remained connected to the major humanists of the time. He published several works during this time and was a tutor to the Medici family, but in the late 1530s Valeriano returned to his home town of Belluno and later published two works on mythology: 'Amorum quinque' (1549),and 'Hieroglyphica,' the first edition of which was printed in Basel, Switzerland, two years before the death of its author, and was very popular. It was reprinted in Latin seven times before the late sixteenth century and also translated into French and Italian, reissued some 34 times before the nineteenth century. It contains an amazing collection of unattributed woodcuts illustrating Valeriano's text, many of which were quite strange and show that the Renaissance humanists' interests could still be piqued by the old medieval curiosities and explanations of the unknown. The text of Horapollo's 'Hieroglyphica' consists of two books, containing a total of 189 explanations of Egyptian hieroglyphs. The books profess to be a translation from an Egyptian original into Greek by a certain Philippus, of whom nothing is known. The inferior Greek of the translation, and the character of the additions in the second book point to its being of late date; some have even assigned it to the eleventh century. The text was discovered in 1419 on the island of Andros, and was taken to Florence by Cristoforo Buondelmonti. By the end of the fifteenth century, the text became immensely popular among humanists, with a first printed edition of the text appearing in 1505, t [Attributes: Hard Cover]
