Japanese Watercolor of Iris Watercolor on paper 19th Century 21” x 17” framed In ancient times Japan had no calendar, and farmers relied on seasonal changes in nature to guide them in growing rice. At the end of winter, the appearance of the cherry blossom marked the end of the hunting season, and the beginning of the rice growing season. In late spring, the iris bloom announced the beginning of the rainy season, when the rice would be transplanted to the fields. Over time, these wild irises were transplanted into Japanese gardens, and have been cultivated in Japan for over 500 years. During the Edo period in Japan (1603-1868) there was a renaissance of iris cultivation, when many years of peace allowed the art and science of botany and horticulture to flourish. In the beginning of Edo Period, when the ruling class of shoguns and daimyos built their castles and mansions, they created many excursion-style gardens, in which people could walk around the garden. The iris or Hanashobu was, and still is, a common flower to see in Japanese gardens as it can be grown in water (ponds or marshes), it’s blooming period in May and its simple and refined beauty. This simple, elegant flower is of high importance in Japanese culture, and has attached to it much symbolic meaning. The iris flower was thought to ward off evil spirits, and is a symbol of masculine success. It’s long, narrow blades of the leaves resemble the sharp blades of the sword, and for many centuries it has been a custom to place iris leaves in a boy’s bath to give him a “martial” spirit. The iris is associated with Boy … [Click Below for Full Description]

Botero, Giovanni
Valladolid: Impresso por los herederos de Diego Fernandez de Cordoua Folio (27 cm; 10.5"). [4], 207, 110 ff. (without final blank and without the maps).. 1603?-1599 Botero (1540?-1617) was an Italian thinker, priest, poet, and diplomat, and after 1580 an expelled Jesuit. His Relaciones universales del mondo, originally published 1594 to 1595 in Italian, tells of the "universal church" (i.e., Catholicism) in various parts of the world, including America, the Old World, India, the circum-Mediterranean, Africa, China, the Philippines, Japan, and Southeast Asia, but also England, Scotland, Ireland, and "the realm of Prester John." More than a few scholars view this as one of the first demographic studies. This first edition, second issue in Spanish is the translation of Diego de Aguiar. It is composed of the sheets of first edition of 1600?-1599 with a new title-page. Printed in roman type, double-column format, it offers a liberal sprinkling of large woodcut initials, some of which are historiated. Provenance: 19th-century private ownership stamp on verso of title-leaf; bookplate of the John Carter Brown Library (with small release stamp) on the front pastedown. 18th-century mottled sheep, raised bands, gilt spine extra; spine gorgeously bright and covers with some abrasions. Title-page and final leaf with foremargins excised and the leaves mounted; first folio 113 with short tears repaired with with cello tape now darkened. Occasional foxing and the other odd spot or stain only; all edges red and a blue ribbon placemarker. A text volume only, this lacks the maps and is priced … [Click Below for Full Description]

FALEREO (DEMETRIO), I. E., DEMETRIUS OF PHALERON:
In Firenze, Nella Stamperia di Cosimo Giunti, 1603. FIRST EDITION of this translation. Small 4to, 205 x 148 mms., pp. [viiii], 280, contemporary vellum, letter in ink on spine, paste-down end-papers with notes in an 18th century hand; front hinge cracked, exposing spine, binding a little soiled. The orator Demetrius of Phaleron (c. 350 B. C. - c. 280 B. C.) was one of the most prolific authors of antiquity, noted in particular for his historical works and those on rhetoric. De Elocutione was first published in 1588, edited by A. P. Manutius. The translator here is Pier Segni, with numerous annotations to the text. The attribution of this work on style to Demetrius has been disputed and is sometimes attributed to an unknown writer in the second century A. D. Most libraries, however, catalogue the work under Demetrius' name.

GUERREIRO, Fernao
Evora: Manoel de Lyra, 1603. 4to., 11, (1) ff., 13-259 pp. Note: L3-4 misbound after L5. Bound in contemporary flexible vellum, title written on spine in ink. Inscription in upper margin of title: Dom. Prof. Societatis Jesu. Cat. Inscr. Bibl. Cois (inscribed in the catalogue of the library in the housed of the professed, Society of Jesus, at Coimbra?); block a bit loose in binding; some even toning and light foxing to a few signatures, but withal an unusually fine unsophisticated copy. Rare first edition and the first and rarest of this series of Portuguese-language reports from missions overseas, with a decided emphasis on Asia. Separately issued over a period of 8 years, the first volume appeared in 1603 and concluded in 1611. Because the individual volumes treat a relatively brief time-span, the author treats events in much greater detail than can generally be found in individual letters or in most synoptic histories of the Jesuits in Asia. Of all the languages in which the Jesuits advertised their activities in the East, those in Portuguese tend to be the rarest. "In his 'to the reader' Guerreiro indicates that he conceived of his Relaçam as a continuation of Luis de Guzman's two volume Historia de las Missiones...en la India Oriental...China y Japon (1601). As a consequence, he usually begins his accounts with 1600, the date when Guzman left off. In moving from area to area in the East, he ordinarily starts with a review of the number and location of Jesuit establishments, the persons working in them, and the activities with which they busied themselves. He indic … [Click Below for Full Description]

ARIOSTO, Lodovico
Venice: F. Valgrisi and N. Moretti, 1603. Early Printing. Hardcover. Some of the impressions are weak, but most are quite presentable. Trimmed at the top close to the text and plate lines, affecting one line of text in the dedication; other margins quite adequate. Vellum soiled. Very Good or better. Large octavo (7" x 10") bound in early full vellum, [16] 654 [32] pages. The complete and corrected ORLANDO FURIOSO, with Ruscelli's dedication to the Duke of Ferrara dated 1556 and an account of the life of Ariosto by Battista Pigna. Illustrated with an engraved title page, 51 full-page woodcuts, ornamental headpieces, and initial letters. The woodcuts, within decorative borders, are after the designs of Dossa Dossi, the Ferrarese painter, and are printed from the blocks of the first Valgrisi quarto editon of 1556. First published in 1516, this classic Italian romantic epic influenced many later works including Spenser's THE FAERIE QUEENE and Shakespeare's MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING. The action takes place against the background of the war between Charlemagne and his Christian paladins and the Saracen army which is attempting to invade Europe. However, Ariosto has little concern for historical or geographical accuracy, and the poem wanders at will from Japan to the Hebrides, as well as including many fantastical and magical elements, such as a trip to the moon and an array of fantastical creatures including a gigantic sea monster called the orc and the hippogriff. The poem grew in popularity as well in size after Ariosto's death, increasing from 40 to 46 cantos in 1532 and fina … [Click Below for Full Description]
