        Maris Pacifici, (quod vulgo Mar del Zur) cum regionaribus circumiacentibus, insulisque in eodem passim sparsis, novissima descripto.

      . Antwerp: Jan Baptist Vrients, 1603. - Single sheet, (17 ¾ x 23 ½ inches). EXCEPTIONALLY FINE engraved map of the Pacific Ocean, the title in an elaborate mannerist strapwork and allegorical cartouche upper right and the imprint in the lower left, the ocean decorated with ships all with hand-color in full (evenly browned, two older tape repairs to verso, one or two pale stains). THE FIRST PRINTED MAP TO BE DEVOTED TO THE PACIFIC OCEAN AND TO SHOW AN EARLY DEPICTION OF THE WEST COAST OF AMERICA. 1603 Latin edition, first published in 1570. Van den Broecke estimates this edition to have been printed in a run of 300 copies only. This map, from the 1603 Antwerp edition with text in Latin on the verso, was one of the most important that appeared in Abraham Ortelius's "Theatrum orbis terrarium." Entitled "Maris Pacifici" - "Ocean of Tranquility" - it was the first printed map to be devoted to the Pacific Ocean, and also includes an early depiction of the west coast of North America, Japan and New Guinea. Nova Hispania (Mexico) and the California peninsula are shown quite accurately for the time. Primarily, however, the map celebrates the achievements of Magellan, the first to traverse the Pacific Ocean and to discover the strait at the southern tip of South America that would come to be named in his honor. Magellan's ship "Victoria" is depicted in the Pacific along with a celebratory Latin inscription. The map is unusually centered on the Pacific itself rather than on any landmass, thus showing the ocean in its entirety as it stretches from Asia to America. This deceptively simple compositional strategy emphasizes the vastness of the Pacific while stressing the magnitude of Magellan's achievement as the first to circumnavigate the globe. Ortelius derived much of the Pacific cartography from the map published in 1589 by his associate, the map engraver Frans Hogenberg, though Ortelius introduced a considerably narrower and more correct North America at the latitude of the Tropic of Cancer than Hogenberg. Although the plate bears the date of 1589, "Maris Pacifici" was first published in Ortelius's 1590 "Additamentum," an appendix to his atlas, and was then included in future editions of the "Theatrum." Ortelius "was very bold to attempt to map what was perhaps the least-known part of the world. He must have realized, however, that the Pacific was increasing in stature as a commercial route to Asia. The long-hoped-for northwest passage had not been found, and mariners avoided the Portuguese-controlled South African voyage to Asia. The ocean became the focus of much sixteenth century exploration. "The symbol of that exploration was Ferdinand Magellan's ship Victoria; on the map it is at sea, having just passed through the strait that bears his name. Magellan became the first European mariner to sail from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific, and his voyage revealed much about the Pacific Ocean more was known about the west coast of America and the Pacific after Sir Francis Drake's circumnavigation (1577-1580), when he explored America's west coast and named it New Albion. Ortelius followed Drake's voyage with keen interest, corresponded with Gerard Mercator about it, and incorporated as much as he could from Drake's discoveries onto 'Maris Pacifici' - the Gulf of California takes on an entirely new shape and the Rio Grande is introduced for the first time on a printed map "Along the lower part of the map is 'Terra Australia,' not an early form of Australia, but a large phantom continent that the early mapmakers believed balanced the weight of Europe and Asia. When Magellan sailed around South America, he believed he was following the coastline of the northern tip of Terra Australis. Like other sixteenth-century map-makers, Ortelius incorporated this enormous continent into his map of the Pacific Ocean" (Cohen). Van den Broecke Ort12.

        Theatrum orbis terrarum

      Jan Baptist Vrients, Antwerp 1603 - Contemporary red morocco, covers bordered and panelled in gilt and blind, covers with a large central design in gilt, expertly rebacked to style, spine in seven compartments with raised bands, ruled in gilt on either side of each band, compartments with a repeat decoration in gilt (expert restoration at board edges) A very rare example of Ortelius's Renaissance masterwork: the first true atlas, here with full contemporary hand colouring. The colouring in this copy is without doubt the finest that we have ever seen. This Latin edition published by Jan Baptist Vrients is one of the most complete issues of the 'Theatrum Orbis' and includes both the 'Parergon' and 'Nomenclator.' The Theatrum. of Abraham Ortelius was one of the most brilliant and innovative of all Renaissance books. It was the first true atlas in the modern sense of the word, and as such, it introduced an entirely new and standardized method for the study of geography. For the first time in one volume, all parts of the globe were treated in a comprehensive and uniform manner, and thus it presented as complete a picture as was then possible of the whole world. Ortelius published editions of his atlas not only in Latin, the traditional language of the scholarly elite, but in the six major European vernaculars: German, Dutch, French, Italian, English and Spanish. The Theatrum was therefore equally at home in the library of a scholar in Paris, a country gentleman in Kent, or a merchant in Grenada. This widespread dissemination had profound results in an age when geographical knowledge was in a rudimentary state: the information laid out in the Theatrum became the universally accepted vision of the world. Another strategy used to make the atlas more accessible to the public was the inclusion of beautiful embellishments in the popular mannerist style, thus appealing to contemporary aesthetic tastes, and aligning the Theatrum with the other great artistic accomplishments of the age. In speaking of the maps in the Theatrum , the noted art historian, James A. Welu comments on "their richness of ornamentation, [they are] a combination of science and art that has rarely been surpassed in the history of mapmaking . Ortelius's Theatrum is known for its numerous decorative cartouches, which undoubtedly added to the atlas's long popularity" ( Art and Cartography , pp. 145-146). Ortelius played a pivotal role in disseminating the revelations of the important explorations and cartographical works of his time. The enthusiasm he and his colleagues felt for their task is suggested in the quote from Cicero at the bottom of the world map map, which may be loosely translated: "How can human affairs be taken seriously by one who contemplates the great world and all eternity?" Further, the Theatrum was the first major printed work of any kind to include scholarly citations of authorities (i.e. the original mapmakers), thus introducing for the first time the concept of footnoting to Western scholarship. Ortelius further included a massive appendix (the Parergon ), consisting of a detailed classical atlas, to appeal to Renaissance Europe's fascination with the ancient world. In its comprehensive coverage of the world, the uniform excellence of its maps, the standardized style and format, the extensive use of the vernacular for marketing, its scholarly citations, and massive classical appendix, the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum of Abraham Ortelius had no precedent.

        ORLANDO FURIOSO di M. Lodovico Ariosto, tutto Ricorretto et di Nuove Figure Adornato

      Venetia Vencenzo Valgrifi 1603 - A very early printing of the complete and corrected ORLANDO FURIOSO, also with the Life of Ariosto by Battista Pigna. Letters, tables and scholarly critical works by Ruscelli and others. Magnificently illustrated with 51 full-page woodcut engravings within ornate borders, using the blocks from the first Valgrisi quarto editon of 1556 (46 in the ORLANDO, 5 additional in the appended "Cinque Canti"), also with engraved architectural titlepage, imprint set in type in a cartouche in the lower part of the border, type ornament with the title, medallion portrait of Ariosto from the Giolito portrait of 1542 from the profile by Titian, devices of Ariosto and Valgrisi’s serpent device, half titles and beautifully engraved decorated large head and tail pieces and large historiated and arabesqe capital initials, printed in double column, Italic. 4to, full antique Italian vellum over stiff boards, spine with terra-cotta morocco label lettered and decorated in gilt. *8, A - Z8; Aa - Vv8; ie [xvi], 654, [32]. A very handsome copy in proper period binding. The paper just likely mellowed and toned by time, very occasionally, headlines slightly shaved, first gathering cropped a bit, the vellum very well preserved, sturdy and handsome. RARE AND EARLY ILLUSTRATED PRINTING OF ONE OF THE FOUR CORNERSTONES OF ITALIAN LITERATURE. Ariosto’s great cantos inspired by the crusades are considered his crowning achievement. Though first published in 1516 Ariosto considered this edition incomplete and imperfect. He continued to work on correcting and enlarging it throughout the remainder of his life thus the first "complete" ORLANDO FURIOSO was not produced till 1532, the year prior to the author’s death by consumption. The extraordinary merits of this work cast into oblivion the numberless romantic poetry which inundated Italy during this period. This flawless work powerful, elegant and cultivated. In description and narrative he excites the reader’s deepest feelings and displays a vivacity of fancy with which no other poet can vie. ‘The ORLANDO blocks were cut for Valgrisi’s first quarto edition of 1556 and follow Niccolo Zoppino’s idea of providing one illustration to each canto but going far beyond the Zoppino blocks in skill of design and cutting. They are the first full-page illustrations for Ariosto. They were placed in the instructive tradition of the Marcolini Dante, the illustration is mentioned on the title-page and at the beginning of Ruscelli’s 1556 dedication to Alfonso d’Este, Duke of Ferrara. Ruscelli explains to the reader the application of the rules of perspective to the multiple scenes in these cuts. The upper part of the block often becomes a map, offering, as Philip Hofer notes, a tour of the canto by hippogryph. Valgrisi’s artist often varied from Giolito’s in his choice of the principal scene for illustration and relegated the Giolito subjects to his background. Valgrisi’s blocks are printed within borders with figures and grotesques. He was able to use the same blocks without borders in an octavo of 1556 for the popular market. There are two different border designs for the illustrations and two smaller cherub borders for the "argomento" to each canto.’ [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Tragoediae Septem.

      Geneva: Paul Estienne, 1603. - This book was given as a prize by Henri de Lorraine, the great abbot of Sain-Remi, Reims, to the prefect of the Reims Jesuit college, 1626. It carries the Prefect's note on the front free endpaper and the front free end-paper and the Jesuit emblem embossed on a small piece of paper pasted at the foot. Eighteenth-century ownership inscription, "Grosley," likely the French scholar, collector and historian Pierre-Jean Grosley, on title, with his long, densely penned manuscript note (post 1724) occupying the rest of the page and its verso, as well as five pages of the three final free endleaves, with scholarly notes and comments on the editions of Greek tragedies. Two parts in one, quarto. [8], 788, [Estienne's Annotationes:] 202, [6] pp. With seven pages of early manuscript notes at the end. Greek and roman letter, in an elegant layout, with the Greek text occupying the upper half of the page, with the Latin translation underneath, and a Greek commentary at the foot. Second part in double columns, in Latin, with references in Greek. Printer's device on first title, decorative woodcut initials and tail-pieces. In a contemporary French prize binding of full sheep, with a provenance inscription marking its passing from the Abbey of Sain-Remi to the Jesuit College in Reims in 1626. Covers profusely gilt with a pattern of crosses, interspersed with fleurs-de-lys and central arms, flat spine, gilt-stamped with the same cross motif, with gilt lettering, edges dotted in gilt, remains of ties, all edges gilt. Hinges cracking, but very sound, small crack front joint near top edge. Expensive notes in a contemporary and early eighteenth-century hand in the preliminaries and at end, early ownership inscription (Grosley) and another (Roger) on first title-page, the second repeated on preliminary blank. Bound in as a reinforcement before the front free endpaper is a fragment of a fourteenth-century document on vellum. A few small marks, two leaves with short closed tear at fore-edge, one gathering misbound, light dampstain to upper margin of a few gatherings at center, but a very good and highly desirable copy in a spectacular binding. In new cloth slipcase. First edition of Paul Estienne's greatest achievement. Schreiber notes: "This is not a mere reprint of Henri's edition of 1578, but a much improved work: besides the commentaries of Camerarius, it includes the Annotationes of Henri Estienne, which were not found in the earlier edition. The Greek Sophoclean text is accompanied by the scholia of Triclinios and the Latin translation of Vitus Winsemius (Veit Oertel)" (Schreiber 273). Pierre-Jean Grosley (1718-1785) was a man of letters, local historian, and travel writer. A magistrate in his native Troyes, he was at the time of his death engaged in publishing his MŽmoires histotriques et critiques pou l'histoire de Troyes, of which only the first volume was published (1774). Other works include Nouveaux mŽmoires, ou, Observations sur l'Italie et sur les Italiens, par deux gentilshommes suŽdois (1764) and Londres (1770), which was translated into English by Thomas Nugent as A Tour to London; Or New Observations on England and its Inhabitants (1772). He was a collector of medieval manuscripts, including a fine manuscript of the chanson de geste, Garin le Loherain, which is now housed at the Bancroft Library. It also bears the signature "Grosley."

His father came from Crete to Italy to teach Greek. Aemilius was appointed professor of Greek at the University of Heidelberg in 1596. He published a great number of works, translations, commentaries and editions of Aristophanes, Thucydides, Xenophon, Dionysius Halicarnessensis, Homer. He even found time to do lexicographic work. In 1603 he published a Dictionarium Ionicum graecolatinum and a Dictionarium Doricum graecolatinum, and in 1606 a lexicon Pindaricum. No wonder that his works show signs of haste. Nevertheless, his editions and translations into Latin form a substantial progress compared to preceding editions.

        Rapport wegens het onderzoek omtrent eene uitwatering te Catwyk aan Zee, gedaan in 1802, op last van dykrichter en hoogheemraaden van Rhynland. ... Met bijlaagen, en daar toe behoorende kaarten en plaaten. Haarlem, for the Rhijnland waterboard by François Bohn, 1803[-1804]. Folio. With 18 folding plates, including maps, elevations, sections, and technical drawings of equipment, and 2 engraved illustrations in the text. Loosely inserted is a manuscript map of ca. 1800, probably by Kros, comparing two alternative paths for the canal, one not shown in the printed plans. Original publisher's boards, covered with sprinkled paper.

      Bierens de Haan 945; Kemper 1603; Saakes 4 (1804), pp. 19, 50. A beautifully illustrated report published by three leading technical officers on behalf of the waterboard of Rijnland, here complete with all four appendices, sometimes lacking. In their report, Frederik Willem Conrad (1769-1805), Arie Blanken Jansz. (1766-1824) and Simon Kros (1746-1813) evaluate the several possibilities of connecting the river Oude Rijn with the North Sea. Plans for realizing such a canal to give the Rijnland water district an additional outlet for its superfluous water, were taken in hand already during the 16th century. The construction of a provisional outlet called the "Mallegat" near the town of Katwijk in the years 1571 and 1572 helped only briefly, because it soon silted up, and the whole subject remained an object of study during the following centuries. After an elaborate plan to construct a drainage canal and sluice during the late 1760's failed for financial reasons, the subject became the centre of scientific debate. Early in the nineteenth century, Mr. Adriaan Pieter Twent van Raaphorst's published propositions breathed new life into the project. In 1803 a research commission chaired by Conrad came up with the present report, providing a definite scheme and an acceptable calculation of the costs. The water board accepted the proposals later that year and preparations for realizing the drainage canal commenced. In 1807 the outlet was completed, providing Rijnland with an excellent facility that proved its great benefits in the long term.The report includes several printed appendices and 18 engraved maps, profiles and technical drawings. Except for an earlier map showing the projected outlet, engraved by Leonard Schenk Jansz. in 1769, all the plates were engraved by Daniel Veelwaard for the present publication in 1803 and 1804. Besides the 1769 and 1803 overview maps, they include engravings showing several tracks of the proposed channel, detailed cross-sections, and profiles of soil test bores and the instruments used. Added to these is a ca. 1800 manuscript map, probably by Kros who at that time was the acting surveyor of Rijnland, showing the canal more or less as it appears in the northernmost projection in the 1803 overview, but with an alternative path superimposed that crossed the Rijn river and curves back to meet it again at the Kalkovens. From the library of the Rijnland water board with their contemporary manuscript shelf mark on a paper spine label and their later ink stamp on the cover and one end leaf. In fine condition and largely untrimmed. Binding rubbed. A fine copy of an influential report for the water management in the western Netherlands.
