        The Naturall and Morall Historie of the East and West Indies

      LONDON : Printed by Val:Sims for Edward Blount and William Aspley , 1604 First english translation of this important work, first published in Spain in 1588 and in enlarged version 1590. This is copy is in a contemporary vellum binding. Acosta drew on 17 years experience as a Jesuit missionary to give a detailed account of the new world. His writing impressed Francis Bacon and he cited the work in New Organon and History of Winds. Classed as fair because some pages have been removed and replaced with fascimile copies. The vellum binding is sound with blind tooled borders. It has some grubbiness as might be expected. Internally the first blank leaf has been replaced and the title page has been repaired to replace loss at the bottom corner. There is some browning and an ink sign and an inscription 'London, July 21 1728'. From the ink colour it looks as if this signatory has added a tail to the zero in 1604 to change the date to 1694. Pages 17-32 and 79-96 are in facsimile. There are some small repaired paper tears, small loss to the bottom inner corner of p65 not affecting text, and some ink lines in the margin of pp62-63. There is substantial ink, pencil and some biro marking on the final blank leaf. Pages have very light brown toning and the occasional mark. Otherwise the text with decorative initial capitals and head and tailpieces is in good clean condition. Size 19 cm x 14.5 cm. An opportunity to buy this rare and significant work at a reduced price.

        Anatomia

      Finely engraved title & 223 woodcut illus. in the text. 4 p.l., 510, [46] pp.; 10 leaves. Two parts in one vol. Folio, modern vellum (title a little spotted in blank margins, occasional very faint dampstaining), ties. [Venice: G.A. & J. de Franceschi, 1604]. [bound with]:FABRICIUS, ab Aquapendente. Le Opere Chirurgiche...devise in due Parti. Nella Prima si tratta delli Tumori, Ferite, Ulceri, Rotture e Slocature. Nella Seconda Delle Operationi principali di Chirurgia, tradotte in lingua Italiana. Large woodcut printer's device on title & nine engraved plates. 4 p.l., 288 pp. Folio (occasional light browning). Padua: G. Cadorino, 1683. Two important medical works bound together. I. This is the fifth edition of Vesalius's Fabrica. It is the fourth edition to be illustrated and the second to use this set of woodcuts. It is a line-for-line reprint of the 1568 edition, with the addition of a handsomely engraved title-page and a new series of anatomical tables compiled by Fabio Paulo from Rufus and Soranus. These additional tables have a separate title-page giving the date of publication which is absent from the title-page of the first part. The 1604 edition was published by the sons of the publisher of the 1568 edition. Cushing suggests, and was clearly right, based by evidence supplied by this sammelband, that this edition of Vesalius was probably issued to fill the demand for copies created when Fabricius of Aquapendente became professor of anatomy at Padua and made the text required reading. II. Fabricius's textbook of surgery was first published in 1617 and described techniques entirely new for that age. It was reprinted many times, even into the 18th century. Fabricius (ca. 1533-1619), was a great professor at Padua, a pupil of Fallopio and teacher of Harvey. This edition is very rare with no copy listed in OCLC. A "seconda impressione" was issued a year later. Nice copies. The Vesalius is a large copy with many edges uncut. I. Cushing VI.A.-5. .

        The Annales of Cornelius Tacitus

      London: Arnold Hatfield for John Norton, 1604 Book. Very Good. Leather Bound. [8] pp 1-271 [1]; [6] pp 1-12, pp 1-227, [3] The third edition of Sir Henry Savile's translation of the Annals of Tacitus published in 1604/ 1605. This copy is bound in handsome contemporary calf. The boards have a quadruple blind fillet with a lozenge shaped decorative gilt device featuring fleur-de-lys in the middle, both front and back. The topmost and lowest spine compartments (of six) have been sympathetically repaired with a gilt date at the foot of the spine; additionally a replacement morocco spine label appears in the second compartment down. Internally there are no paste-downs, and at the front and rear about an inch of printer's waste has been used by the early seventeenth century binder to reinforce the book's sewing. This reveals itself to be a thirteenth or fourteenth century manuscript (probably religious) on vellum in a miniscule scribal hand (around 50 lines to a page) which is written in Latin. Both the preliminary and terminal blanks are present; the preliminary blank and the endpaper that precedes it are browned and have been repeatedly folded near the foreedge. There are early ownership signatures from several members of the Gibbon family, including John Giubon, John Gibon and Robert Gibbon as well as the ownership statement 'Robert Rolle eius Liber' on the endpaper. The text is complete as called for with the second title page for 'The End of Nero and Beginning of Galba' half way through, and the copper plate full-page engraving at page 213. There is an old stain that runs through the second two thirds of the book and becomes more pronounced in the last quarter of the volume. A closed tear runs in from the foreedge of page 141 of the first book about two inches. This book comes from a collection that has already yielded one early seventeenth century work (George Chapman's Translation of Homer 1611/1615) which was annotated in soft pencil by Samuel Johnson in preparation for the inclusion of words and quotations in his Dictionary. It is noteworthy that the early pages of the second book, especially the introduction, of the Annales, exhibit a puzzling pattern of old soft pencil annotation. (cf Professor Jack Lynch, in his 2002 edition of Johnson's Dictionary: 'When he found a passage he wanted to include, he made a vertical pencil mark before and after it; he then underscored the word he wanted to define and wrote its initial letter in the margin. When he finished with the book, he handed it over to his amanuenses, who would copy out the marked passages and cross out the marginal letters.') In this book the annotator has picked out words and phrases without appending pencil markings before and after. It should be noted that Johnson did not cite quotations from the Savile translation of Tacitus in the Dictionary and if these annotations are his they must be presumed to be of a preliminary nature, not subsequently incorporated into the Dictionary. As such any suggestion of Dr Johnson's use of this text must remain speculative only but could prove of future scholarly interest. ESTC S117624.

        The Naturall and Morall Historie of the East and West Indies. Written in Spanish. and translated into English by E.G

      London: Val Sims for Edward Blount and William Aspley, 1604. Hardcover. Very Good. [17.5 x 13 cm], (3) ff., 590 pp., (7) ff. index & errata. Without first and final blanks. Bound in tan calf by Riviere preserving original spine. Title slightly soiled, with blank corner renewed. Some worming or small tears in K signature, with the reinforcement or mend obscuring or slightly affecting a partial letter but not legibility; same for Mm8; elsewhere some minor soiling or staining. Withal very good. <P> First English edition of this eyewitness anthropological account of the Americas, chiefly Inca Peru and Aztec Mesoamerica, by the Jeusit father José de Acosta, "<B>a more thoughtful and a more thorough account of the Indian world than anything then available</B>" (Pagden). Acosta&#39;s crowning achievement in the present volume is his <B>extensive history and ethnology of the Inca and Aztec peoples</B>. He traces the history of the Aztecs from their estimated arrival in Mesoamerica to the defeat of Moctezuma II (c. 1466-1520) by Cortés, and he devotes over 200 pages to observations on Aztec and Inca religious beliefs, feasts and holidays, political and social hierarchies, marriages, funerals, and architecture, including three chapters on Aztec ceremonies of human sacrifice. "The idea of a "moral history," a history, that is, of <I>mores</I>-of customs-was an unusual one in the sixteenth century. No one, as Acosta was at pains to point out, had ever attempted to write a true "history" of the Indians, though there had been accounts of the origin and growth of the Spanish colonies which included a (usually cursory) glance at the indigenes. Of all the vast literature on the Indies during this period Acosta&#39;s <I>Historia</I> was perhaps the only work which contemporaries recognized as having broken new ground" (Pagden 149-157). The work is also notable for Acosta&#39;s theorizing-over 100 years before the discovery of the Bering Strait-that Indians migrated into New Spain from Asia, as well as for his description of the now-eponymous altitude sickness (Acosta&#39;s disease) that he suffered from while crossing the Peruvian Andes. The present English translation, by Edward Grimeston, was taken not from the 1590 Spanish but from the French edition of 1598 or 1600. It "made available much new information, both geographical and philosophical, to English readers [and] important and rational ideas concerning the origins of American Indians were revealed . . . . .His ideas [regarding the Bering migration] had a profound impact on later English writers on the subject such as Strachey, Brerewood and Purchas" (Steele p. 17). <P>*Church 328; STC 94; Alden 604/1; Cordier <I>Japonica</I> 120 (1590 Ed.); Morton 2244; Sabin 131; Sommervogel .I.35; Steele 1; Pagden, <I>The fall of natural man: the American Indian and the origins of comparative ethnology</I>, pp. 149-157.

      London: Imprinted for William Aspley. 1604. Hardcover.

STC.14430.5 , When James I came to the throne in 1604 Catholics in England were hopeful of greater toleration for their religion than had been the case under Elizabeth I. John Colleton was a Catholic priest who had been involved in the &#39;Archpriest Controversy&#39; of 1598-1602 in which a group of moderates, of which Colleton was one, had sought to wrest control of the Catholic Mission in England away from the Jesuits. In 1603 Colleton signed Colleton signed the declaration of allegiance to Queen Elizabeth and the appeal to the pope and in 1604 he wrote A Supplication to the King&#39;s most Excellent Majestie, an anonymous petition to James I for the toleration of Catholics. This current work reprints Colleton&#39;s &#39;Supplication&#39; and provides a reply to it in the form of marginal notes to the text. This reply is attributed to Matthew Sutcliffe, an author of a number of anti-Catholic tracts. , 4to, Unpaginated pp .

        Istria olim Iapidia

      Carta geografica tratta da L'Italia a cura di Fabio Magini, edito a Bologna tra il 1620 ed il 1640. La carta dell?Istria è probabilmente opera del Magini stesso, in quanto la carta di Pietro Coppo datata 1569, unica carta del territorio antecedente a questa, risulta molto diversa nel rilievo del territorio. Questo lascia presupporre che il Magini abbia avuto tra le mani una carta inedita probabilmente fornitagli direttamente dalla Repubblica Veneta.

      London: Imprinted for William Aspley. 1604. Hardcover.

STC.14430.5 , When James I came to the throne in 1604 Catholics in England were hopeful of greater toleration for their religion than had been the case under Elizabeth I. John Colleton was a Catholic priest who had been involved in the &#39;Archpriest Controversy&#39; of 1598-1602 in which a group of moderates, of which Colleton was one, had sought to wrest control of the Catholic Mission in England away from the Jesuits. In 1603 Colleton signed Colleton signed the declaration of allegiance to Queen Elizabeth and the appeal to the pope and in 1604 he wrote A Supplication to the King&#39;s most Excellent Majestie, an anonymous petition to James I for the toleration of Catholics. This current work reprints Colleton&#39;s &#39;Supplication&#39; and provides a reply to it in the form of marginal notes to the text. This reply is attributed to Matthew Sutcliffe, an author of a number of anti-Catholic tracts. , 4to, Unpaginated pp .

Cum Diversis Manuscriptis Nuper Examinatis: Cum Duplici Indice; Uno Alphabetice in Principio Libri; Altero Summorum Capitulorum in Fine. [London: Printed by A. Islip for] Thomas Wight, 1604]. [ix], 116, [17] fols. Octavo (5-1/2" X 3-1/2"). Recent period-style calf, raised bands and lettering piece to spine, endpapers renewed. Attractive woodcut head-pieces, tail-pieces and decorated initials. Toning, small tear to title page. A nice wide-margined copy in an attractive binding. * Second edition. As Winfield has noted, the anonymous Latin text long attributed to Glanville (or Glanvill) is the "first classical textbook of English law." Completed around 1189, it describes the procedure of the King&#39;s Bench. There is much information pertaining to litigation and includes the texts of approximately eighty writs. Glanville was a major contribution to the development of the common law tradition. It continued to be a primary reference for several generations. Coke, for example, praised it wholeheartedly and used it liberally in his Reports. Though overshadowed by Bracton&#39;s larger treatise, Glanville is still cited today. It also remains useful for its unparalleled insights into the nature of land law and procedure in medieval England. Winfield, Chief Sources of English Legal History 257.

På det avslutande bladet har en rad präster intygat att föreliggande skrift om Kristi person och nattvarden är i överensstämmelse med Bibeln och den rena läran. Detta är ärkebiskop Olaus Martinis (1557-1609) svar på den samma år utkomna "Någre synnerlighe bewijs", som enligt traditionen författats av Karl IX. Martini slår ned på de passager i denna bok som förfäktade kalvinistiska idéer och han använde just denna vid tiden illa ansedda etikett på skriften och dess upphovsman. Kungen reagerade med att den 30 december 1604 utfärda en öppen skrivelse till rikets invånare där han erkände sig vara författare till den anonyma skriften, men att han på intet sätt ville kopplas samman med kalvinismen. Han utlovade också ett svar i sin tur på Martinis angrepp. Det dröjde emellertid två år tills detta utkom. Kungen svor sig där fri från alla kalvinistanklagelser men bemöttes även då av ett hätskt angrepp från ärkebiskopen, denna gång i form av en predikan

Spines with 5 raised bands. Corners a bit bumped. Light wear to spine ends. Titlelabel in red leather with gilt lettering to Tome 2 (the titlelabel gone on tome 1). Printers large woodcut device on both titlepages and in a smaller form on title to "Del Modo di Distillare". Portrait of Matthioli before F1. Titlepage + F1-14 (unnumbered, Dedication to Signor Gio.

With more that 900 large woodcuts in the text, botanical, animals, apparatus etc.. Without free endpapers. Titlepages a bit brownspotted, some scattered brownspots, mostly marginal, a few inkspots to textleaves, a few small tears (no loss).Second titlepage a bit creased. A few margins at end with faint dampstains. With 6 small circular stamps of authenticity (4 on first titlepage, 1 on last leaf before colophon and 1 on the second titlepage).. Scarce complete Italian edition of Matthioli's most important work, being his commentaries on Dioscorides, and here in the enlarged form both in relation to the text and with the woodcuts in their final and largest form (mostly 3/4-page), made by Giorgio Liberale and Wolfgang Meyerpeck. "The woodcuts are an important advance over the fairly mediocre ones used in Matthioli's wearler works."(Hunt, vol. I, p. 100). "These woodcuts (the larger cuts) are similar in character to the earlier ones, but far more accomplished and impressive. Shading is extensively used, and the details are executed with great skill. They are not dependent upon colour as are those of Fuchs... among the finest illustrations must certainly be included those of trees, especially conifers; the baffling intricity of their detail never proved too difficult a task for either draftsman or engraver... " (Wilfrid Blunt "The Art of Botanical Illustration", p. 59).The first edition was published in Italian in 1544, and the first Latin in 1554, but the 1565 Latin edition was the first augmented with Matthioli's fuller notes. The German edition "New Kreüterbuch" of 1563 was the first to have the fine series of the large woodcuts made by Giorgio Liberale and Wolfgang Meyerpeck. This series is printed here using the original enlarged woodblocks. "His commentaries on Dioscorides became practically a general flora: they were immensely popular in Europe because of their mostly excellent illustrations, and many editions were published in Latin, Italian, German and Czech."(A.G. Morton "History of Botanical Science", p. 154)."The artists who made both the small and the large woodcuts for the "Commentarii" were an Italian, Giorgio Liberale of Udine, and a German named Wolfgang meyerpeck; how they divided their labours is not stated, but probably Liberale was the draughtsman. The big set of figures is in very way so immeasurably superior to the small..." (Blunt & Raphael "The Illustrated Herbal", p. 133)."Fundamental to the work's success is its conception and execution as a practical scientific treatise. It was intended for daily use by physicians, herbalists, and others, who could find descriptions and notes on medical plants and herbs, Greek and Latin names and synonyms, and the equivalents in other languages. The work made it possible to identify and compare plants and herbs with those mentioned by Dioscorides and also with those found in nature....Matthioli supported his work with new information, partly derived from his direct observations of plants and herbs and partly obtained from other authors....Matthioli's commentary on Dioscoride's text was aimed largely at the practical purpose of medicinal phytognosis and acquired intrinsic value both through the wealth of its descriptive details of each plant and through its accurate drawings. Mattioli may therefore be considered a member of the Vesalian school of morphological observation." (DSB IX, p.179-80).Pritzel: 5988. Not in Nissen. Not in Hunt.- Brunet III:1539
