        The Twoo Bookes of Francis Bacon.

      London: For Henrie Tomes, 1605. First edition. Octavo, original vellum. Sir Roger Twysden's copy (1597-1672) with his signature dated 1621 and extensive notes in the blank pages at the beginning and end. Some staining to some pages, and contemporary marginalia. Rare in contemporary binding. Francis Bacon's "insistence on making science experimental and factual, rather than speculative and philosophical, had powerful consequences. He saw clearly the limitations of Aristotelian and scholastic methods and the growing breach between the thinking of his time and that of the Middle Ages is more precisely formulated than in that of, say, Tommaso Campanella or Giordano Bruno. As a philosopher Bacon's influence on Locke and through him on subsequent English schools of psychology and ethics was profound. Leibniz, Huygens and particularly Robert Boyle were deeply indebted to him, as were the Encyclop?distes, and Voltaire, who called him 'le p?re de la philosophie experimentale" (PMM).

      - Leiden, Officina Plantiniana, Franciscus Raphelingius the younger, 1605. Folio. pp. (xvi), 378, (10); 52; (xii), 242, (2), with engraved title, two woodcut maps of the Hellespont and Alexandria, and 275 woodcuts in text (96 non-botanical). (Together with:) CLUSIUS, C. Curae posteriores, seu plurimarum non ante cognitarum. Leiden, ex officina Plantiniana Raphelengii, 1611. pp. (6), 71, 24, with engraved title and 34 woodcuts. Bound in 2 contemporary mottled calf bindings, richly gilt ornamented spines with gilt lettered labels (some minor skilful repairs). First edition of the two volumes of L'Écluse's collected works, including the rare portrait in the Rariorum, which is almost always lacking.I. First edition. The first part of the work synthesises material presented in L'Écluse's 'Rariorum aliquot Stirpium per Pannoniam et Austriam Observatarum Historia', Antwerp 1583 and his 'Rariorum aliquot Stirpium per Hispanias.' Antwerp 1576, along with additions describing new plants. It is followed by the 'Fungorum historia', the first published treatise on fungi, which L'Écluse had composed during his stay with the Count of Batthyam in Hungary, Giovanni Pona's 'Plantae quae in Baldo Monte reperiuntur', and letters of Honorius Belli and Tobias Roelsius. Approximately one hundred new species are described for the first time.The engraved title has a fine architectural border with representations of Adam and Solomon, and Theophrastus and Dioscorides, surrounded by pots of exotic plants, such as lilies and tulips (the latter were introduced into European cultivation by L'Écluse). The portrait, signed D. Gheyn, depicts L'Écluse in an oval cartouche incorporating a coat-of-arms and surrounded by pots of tulips, lilies, fritillaries, etc., two winged Naiads emerging from cornucopiae overflowing with plants, tiaras of sea-urchins on their heads, nuts, seeds, and corals strewn below.Of the 1109 woodcuts, 233 are from the Spanish flora and 356 from the Austro-Hungarian flora, and were cut by Gerard van Kampen after drawings by L'Écluse and Pieter van der Borcht. The remaining blocks were cut by the son of Virgil Solis in Frankfurt.II. First edition of the sequel to the author's 'Rariorum plantarum historia', 1601, containing further works not published in the former, and mostly devoted to exotic plants and animals. The first six books, Libri I-VI, are new writings by L'Écluse, devoted to new species of plants, animals, and natural history products from the New World, Southeast Asia, Africa, etc. This work is important for the number of new descriptions of non-European plants (and some animals) it contains, among which is the first published record and illustration of a South African plant. 'It is of particular importance to us in containing an illustration of a dried inflorescence of Protea neriifolia. Clusius provided a full description of the specimen, which he referred to as an 'elegant thistle' (Carduus), and reported that it was collected at Antongil Bay on the north-east coast of Madagascar during a Dutch trading expedition to Java in 1597. The locality recorded was clearly incorrect and there can be no doubt that the specimen must have been picked up during a call for fresh water somewhere along the Cape coast. It has the distinction of being the first known botanical object to have reached Europe from South Africa' (Todd and Gunn, Botanical exploration of South Africa p. 13).There is an extensive account of exotic seeds sent to him by various explorers. Libri VII-X comprise L' Écluse's translations, with commentary, of da Orta, Acosta, and Monardes. This is followed by further works by Monardes translated by L'Écluse, entitled 'Libri tres, magna medicina secreta et varia experimenta continentes' (on the bezoar stone, iron, snow, etc), 'Libellus de rosa' and 'Dissertatiuncula de citriis'. This is followed by the 'Altera appendix', intended as a supplement to the 'Rariorum plantarum historiae', and L'Écluse's translations of and commentar [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Institutiones Juris Anglicani Ad Methodum Et Serium Institutionum

      1605. "The Most Learned Civilian of His Time" Cowell, John [1554-1611]. Institutiones Juris Anglicani Ad Methodum Et Serium Institutionum Imperialium Compositae & Digestae. Opus non Solum Iuris Anglicani Romaniq[ue] in hoc Regno Studiosis, Sed Omnibus qui Politeian & Consuetudines Inclyti Nostri Imperii Penitius Scire Cupiunt, Utile & Accommodatum. Cum Duplici Indice, Quorum Alter Titulos Ordine Alphabetico, Alter Obscuras Iuris Ang. Dictiones Earumq[ue] Explicationem Continet. Cambridge: Ex Officina Iohannis Legat, 1605. [xii], 268, [20] pp. Octavo (6-1/2" x 4-1/2"). Contemporary limp vellum, early hand-lettered title to spine. Moderate soiling, corners and spine ends bumped, small hole to center of spine, pastedowns loose. Large seal of Cambridge University to verso of title. Some toning, moderate edgewear to endleaves. Early owner signature (of Charles Milborne) to front and rear endleaves, interior otherwise clean. * First edition. As Walker notes, Cowell was "the most learned civilian of his time." Regius Professor of Civil Law at Cambridge from 1594 to 1611, he is remembered today as the author of an important (and controversial) dictionary, The Interpreter (1607), which went through several subsequent editions. As indicated by its title, the Institutiones is an elementary textbook on English law organized in the manner of Justinian's Institutes. As Holdsworth notes, "The objects of [this book] were to promote the union of England and Scotland by pointing out the resemblances between the common law and the civil law; to give the student of the common law some knowledge of the general principles of law; and to show the students of the civil law that if they would study the common law, they would improve their knowledge of both laws, and cease to be regarded as mere children in legal knowledge. That these ideas were sound is fairly obvious [today]... but they were in advance of their time." A translation of this book was ordered by Parliament in 1651, which indicates its stature during the Commonwealth period (despite Cowell's support of the crown). There were five editions in all; the final edition, in Latin, was published in 1676. Walker, The Oxford Companion to Law 311. Holdsworth, A History of English Law V:21.

        Früheste Druck-Ansicht des Melibocus (Hessische Bergstrasse). Aus: Hessische Chronica.

      Kassel Wilhelm Wessel 1605 - O-Kupferstichansicht der Bergstrasse zwischen Seeheim-Jugenheim und Zwingenberg sowie rückseitig eine Ansicht der Stadt Zwingenberg auf hälftigem Doppelblatt. Rückseitig mit Text der Seiten 39 und 40. Papier gebräunt und im Rand etwas fleckig. Blattgröße: 24,9 x 8 cm, Ansichtsgrösse: 20,2 x 6,4 cm. Früheste gedruckte Ansicht der Bergstrasse! Dilich bildete in seinem Stich den Bereich der Bergstrasse zwischen Seeheim und Zwingenberg ab. Im Vordergrund Bickenbach mit seiner Kirche (1622 abgebrannt) und im Hintergrund Alsbach unterhalb des Alsbacher Schlosses; ganz links die Kirche von Seeheim und ganz rechts hinter einer Bodenwelle, die von Zwingenberg. Ferner sind zu sehen die Tannenburg, das Schloss Alsbach und das Schloss Auerbach. Die Berge und die Kirchtürme hat Dillich in all seinen Stichen höher gesehen und wiedergegeben als es diese in Wirklichkeit waren. Es gibt auch Autoren, die die Ansicht vertreten, dass die Kirche links im Bilde zu Eberstadt gehört und die Burg rechts über ihr Frankenstein darstellt. Dillichs Ansichten sind nach der Natur gezeichnet und gestochen. So entsprechen die Ansichten der Schlösser Alsbach und Auerbach der Wirklichkeit. Dilich (1571-1655) war der Sohn des Pfarrers Heinrich Scheffer auch Schaeffer von Wabern. Von 1589 bis 1590 studierte er an der Universität Wittenberg und bis 1591 an der Philipps-Universität in Marburg an der Lahn. Dort lernte er den späteren Landgrafen Moritz von Hessen-Kassel kennen, für den er ab 1592 als Grafiker tätig war. Als sein Hauptwerk gilt die "Hessische Chronica" von 1605. Wilhelm Dilich bildete in diesem Buch alle Städte Hessens des 16. Jahrhunderts ab. Oftmals sind die Stadtansichten Wilhelm Dilichs die ältesten nachweisbaren historischen bildlichen Abbildungen. Zwischen 1607 und 1622 arbeitete er an den Landtafeln hessischer Ämter zwischen Rhein und Weser. Der Maßstab der Aufnahmen reicht von Karten bis hin zu Bauaufnahmen einzelner Burgen wie Ziegenhain, der Marksburg oder Rheinfels über St. Goar. Von 1622 bis 1625 wurde er wegen Überschreitung seiner Befugnisse inhaftiert. Mit Hilfe des Statthalters Wilhelm von Hessen gelang ihm die Flucht nach Kursachsen. Seit März 1625 war Wilhelm Dilich als Kriegsingenieur, Kartograph, Baumeister und Vedutenzeichner im Dienst des sächsischen Kurfürsten Johann Georg I. in Dresden tätig. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Les VII Psalmes de la pénitence de David Traduicts de l'italien de P l'Ar

(1p. bl.) 161pp., relié. - Binding XVIII in full morocco lemon. Back smooth decorated with the grotesque, as part red morocco. Large gold lace framing boards. Gold lace framing of paper contreplats cream gold stars. All edges gilt. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale, rare, de cette nouvelle traduction française par François de Rosset, l'oeuvre avait auparavant été traduite en 1540 par Vauzelles. Reliure XVIIIème en plein maroquin citron. Dos lisse orné à la grotesque, pièce de titre de maroquin rouge. Large dentelle dorée en encadrement des plats. Dentelle dorée en encadrement des contreplats de papier crème à étoiles dorées. Toutes tranches dorées. Deux coins très légèrement émoussés, sinon très bel exemplaire. La traduction de l'Aretin n'en est en fait pas une, c'est une manière de paraphrase, avec des reformulations amplifiées ou au contraire minimisées, l'Aretin mettant l'accent sur telle scène ou tel sentiment ou au contraire diminuant leur intensité. En outre, il s'agit bien d'une interprétation manifeste du sens des psaumes et une mise en scène dramatique de ces derniers, l'Aretin cherchant à démontrer sa thèse principale de correspondance entre la miséricorde divine et l'efficacité de la pénitence ; il transforme ainsi des textes divers en une unité suivie en créant un narrateur qui parle de David à la troisième personne, et qui lui permet, non seulement de donner des commentaires mais d'encadrer le texte à la première personne des psaumes : c'est une forme de recréation littéraire.

Kircher) la ritenne una rappresentazione delle cerimonie sacrificali degli antichi egizi. «Prezioso libro» [Cicognara 2544]. Cfr. Caillet 8681, Gay 1567. Buon esemplare.

        MANIFATTURE DEL REGIO PARCO MANIFACTURES DU PARC ROYAL

      Incisione originale eseguita all'acquaforte su matrice di rame, impressa in seppia, senza testo al verso. In lastra, sotto la parte figurata, indicazione degli autori, titolo in francese e in versione italiana, nonché indirizzo dello stampatore in italiano. L'opera, notevole per raffinatezza tecnica e interesse vedutistico, è tratta da un album di 16 vedute di Torino, di chiese e residenze sabaude site nei dintorni della città nonché di altre residenze sabaude erette in altre zone del Piemonte (quali i castelli di Govone e Racconigi). La suite venne eseguita da un abile incisore milanese, su invenzione del disegnatore e litografo piemontese Nicolosino. L'immagine in esame raffigura l'edificio delle Manifatture Tabacchi, animano la veduta personaggi ed imbarcazioni sul fiume; il castello del Regio Parco, detto del Viboccone aveva annessa una chiesa costruita nel 1605 ed affrescata dal Moncalvo, completamente rovinato durante l'assedio del 1706, non fu più ricostruito e sulla sua area sorsero, nel 1768 la manifattura tabacchi, su disegno dell'architetto Ferroggio, e nel 1828 l'attuale Cimitero. Esemplare in buono stato conservativo.

        Disegno tecnico originale dell'architetto, pittore e ingegnere militare Bernardo Buonatalenti (Firenze, 1531 - 1608), datato 1605, raffigurante alcuni progetti di arginatura idrica.

      Disegno policromo a inchiostro e acquarello su carta greve, su tonalità assai leggere, in formato cm.38,3x56, raffigurante i progetti di alcune sistemazioni idriche. Alcuni restauri cartacei. Nel disegno compaiono alcune notazioni manoscritte. Nella parte sinistra della tavola viene raffigurato il corso di un fiume, con vari affluenti ed il progetto di sistemazione idrica, i cui elementi sono contrassegnati da lettere alfabetiche, dalla A alla H, con relative spiegazioni. In alto a destra la dizione "Ill.mo Sig. Giovanni Lucesini / di Fiorenza questo dì 5 ottobre 1605 / Bernardo Buonatalenti / Architeto del serenissimo Granduca di / Toscana". Nella parte centrale il prospetto di un edificio atto alla canalizzazione. In basso una ulteriore notazione manoscritta su cinque riche: "Questo è il muro in profilo che dimostra la sua forma ....". Disegno di sapore, riferito sicuramente ad un progetto di sistemazione idrica del Buontalenti, ormai in età avanzata. Non è stato possibile verificare se la stesura né se la grafìa siano dello stesso architetto, personaggio di assoluta importanza nel Rinascimento fiorentino "Bernardo Buontalenti, vero nome Bernardo Timante Buonacorsi (Firenze, 1531 ? Firenze, 6 giugno 1608), è stato un architetto, scultore, pittore, ingegnere militare e scenografo italiano, con la sua lunga ed operosa attività presso la corte granducale fiorentina, fu uno degli artisti più importanti ed influenti della seconda metà del Cinquecento e personaggio chiave dell'epoca del manierismo fiorentino, fortemente legata alla personalità di Michelangelo ed in genere al Rinascimento toscano. Rimasto illeso da ragazzo da una frana in Costa San Giorgio che travolse la sua casa e la sua famiglia, entrò fin da ragazzo al servizio della corte granducale e divenne allievo del Vasari e del pittore Salviati. Fu anche ammiratore dell'architettura di Michelangelo e delle opere di Ammannati. La sua formazione fu eccezionalmente completa e gli permise di estendere le sue competenze anche alla scenografia (sotto la guida di Vasari). Ancora giovane ebbe l'onore di partecipare agli allestimenti effimeri per le onoranze pubbliche di Michelangelo, con una tela di grandi proporzioni raffigurante i grandi fiumi del mondo. Collaborò con Niccolò Tribolo e Vasari ai più importanti cantieri granducali, in cui, dopo la loro morte, subentrerà, sovraintendendo al completamento, per esempio, degli Uffizi e del complesso di Palazzo Pitti e giardino di Boboli. Intorno al 1564 fu tra i collaboratori di Baldassarre Lanci nell'edificazione di Terra del Sole, completando la sua formazione con la conoscenza della fortificazione alla moderna a cui si era appassionato, tanto che Vasari sembra rimproverarglielo, avendo trascurato la pittura in cui ben prometteva. Con Francesco I, conosciuto fin da ragazzo, si creò, prima ancora della sua ascesa al trono, una completa sintonia intellettuale ed un sodalizio interrotto solo nel 1587 con la morte del granduca. Buontalenti fece, in qualche modo, da precettore al principe sulle questioni artistiche e lo accompagnò tra il 1562 e 1563 in un viaggio in Spagna. Per Francesco, ancora principe reggente, Buontalenti progettò, tra l'altro, il Palazzo di Bianca Cappello in via Maggio che fu probabilmente la sua prima opera architettonica autonoma (1568), il Casino di San Marco (1574), con il laboratorio del principe, e la Villa Medicea di Pratolino (1569 - 1575) con la famosa scultura colossale dell'Appennino, creata dal Giambologna, il celebre parco, le fontane con giochi d'acqua. Diventato l'architetto di corte, dopo la morte di Vasari nel 1574, fu presente in tutte le committenze granducali, occupandosi dei più svariati campi, dagli interventi urbanistici, come l'ampliamento di Livorno, agli allestimenti effimeri, come l'apparato nel Battistero di Firenze per il battesimo del principe Filippo (1577) e apparati per spettacolari feste di corte, spettacoli, giochi pirotecnici per i quali realizzò molti disegni che ancora si conservano agli Uffizi. Si cimentò anche nella pittura e nella miniatura, ma in modo saltuario. Più rilevante fu la sua attività nel campo delle arti decorative: oreficeria, ceramica, ebanisteria, disegnando molti degli arredi e degli oggetti più preziosi per la corte medicea, realizzati nelle manifatture granducali ospitate prima nel Casino mediceo e poi agli Uffizi. Si occupò anche degli aspetti più minuti della vita di corte, tanto che gli viene attribuita l'invenzione del gelato, in occasione di uno dei banchetti di rappresentanza più importanti a cui sovraintese: le nozze di Maria de' Medici. Per il complesso di Palazzo Pitti progettò buona parte delle decorazioni interne ed alcune sistemazioni del giardino come la Grotticina della Madama (1570) e la celebre Grotta detta "del Buontalenti" (1575) che conservava i Prigioni di Michelangelo. Si occupò anche del cantiere di Palazzo Vecchio ed in particolare dell'ampliamento posteriore. Dal 1563 al 1580 ampliò anche il palazzo degli Uffizi allestendo con opere d'arte la Galleria all'ultimo piano, gettando le basi per il museo più antico dell'Europa moderna. Completò anche il corridoio che unisce il palazzo con il Pitti. Nello stesso complesso realizzò la Tribuna ottagonale (1584 - 1587), destinata ad ospitare le opere più importanti della collezione medicea e la famosa Porta delle Suppliche con un timpano rovesciato che è diventato un'opera emblematica del manierismo. All'interno degli Uffizi, realizzò anche il Teatro Mediceo (1583 - 1586) per il quale progettava anche i costumi e le scenografie per i vari spettacoli che ebbero vasta risonanza e furono una tappa importante nel teatro rinascimentale, verso il teatro barocco italiano. Memorabile l'allestimento degli Intermedi della Pellegrina, rappresentata nel 1589 per il matriminio di Ferdinando de' Medici. Già per Francesco I aveva sistemato varie dimore extraurbane come la Villa medicea di Lappeggi (dal 1569) e la Villa di Trefiano (progettata nel 1570). Dal 1575 al 1590 s

        De agro Frisiae inter amasvm & lavicam flumina. deque urbe Groninga in agro eodem: et de iure utriusqve. [bound with:] Series consulum, eorumque, qui ante eos consulari potestate fuere in civitate Groningana

      Groningen, Netherlands: Gerhard Ketel, Typographi ordinarii, 1605. First edition. 191,[1] pp. plus a number of inserted blank interleaves; 56pp. plus several blank interleaves, two bearing contemporary manuscript notes continuing work to 1613. Numerous setting errors in the pagination, but sequence complete. 1 vols. 8vo. Contemporary calf, tooled in gilt, gilt gauffered edges. Initials "D.D.R." and date of "1607" stamped on both boards, within gilt frame with corner ornaments and a central oval with internal floral devices. Extremities and joints rubbed, front joint worn but sound, vestiges of absent ties at fore-edge, modern bookplate on front pastedown, a few side notes in the latter work slightly shaved at foremargin by binder, early ink ownership inscription on rear pastedown, ink note of acquisition/provenance on front free endsheet ("Lot 203. Sotheby's Gallery 1892 E.H. Laurence Library"). First edition. 191,[1] pp. plus a number of inserted blank interleaves; 56pp. plus several blank interleaves, two bearing contemporary manuscript notes continuing work to 1613. Numerous setting errors in the pagination, but sequence complete. 1 vols. 8vo. An attractive copy of this work on the history of the Frisian territories by German historian and geographer Ubbo Emmius (1547 - 1625). From East Frisia himself,  Emmius wrote several works concerning the history of that coastal area, and a number of his titles appeared under the Elzevier's imprints in coming years. The first work is noted as the second book printed in Gronigen (the first being another work by Emmius printed in 1603) and one must assume the second work is also close in that sequence, particularly as it often appears bound with a number of the copies of the former title reported in OCLC. A rough and inadequate transcription of the ownership inscription on the rear pastedown suggests the original owner may have been "D.D. Doct. Daüide Robertüm"; a witty Latin couplet adorns the first blank along with two later ownership signatures. A beautiful book in a decorative contemporary binding, in near original condition.

Bound in contemporary vellum, rebacked with original ink-lettered spine laid down, large blind-stamped arabesque centrepiece on covers. Brownish stain on rear cover, leaves lightly toned, noticeable offsetting from some plates, but overall a nice clean copy. An early combined edition of the Flemish humanist and Latin scholar, Justus Lipsius's two most important treatises on Roman military history. "De Militia Romana", first published in 1595, is a commentary on Polybius's "History", with the Greek text and a parallel Latin translation. "Poliorcetica" (1599) is a study of the Roman machinery of war. Both are embellished with the fine engravings of Peeter vander Borcht and Theodore Galle. In addition to these works, Lipsius produced critical editions of Vallerius Maximus, Vellius Paterculus, Seneca, and the younger Pliny, but he was most highly regarded for his editions of Tacitus (1574, 1600), whose work he knew so well that he "offered to repeat any passage with a dagger at his breast, to be used against him if his memory failed him".

Contiene 240 composiciones de 63 autores diferentes, aunque ambas cifras varían según el ejemplar de que se trate. Si bien incorpora algunos autores menores por intereses y compromisos, destacan especialmente Góngora, con 37 poemas; Luis Martín de la Plaza, con 27; Quevedo, con 21; el mismo Espinosa y Lupercio Leonardo de Argensola, con 19 cada uno; Juan Valdés y Meléndez, con 9; Luis Barahona de Soto y Lope de Vega con 8, Baltasar del Alcázar y Juan de Arguijo con 6, Agustín de Tejada con 5, y Cristobalina Fernández de Alarcón con 2. El libro es uno de los peor impresos en la historia de la tipografía del Siglo de Oro, sin duda no por culpa del editor, sino de las prisas y el poco dinero; lleva aprobación del 24 de noviembre de 1603 y privilegio de impresión del 8 de diciembre del mismo año, pero tardó dieciséis meses en salir mientras llegaba el dinero del mecenas que costeaba la edición, el Duque de Béjar, también mecenas del casi simultáneo Quijote, ya que la tasa fue dada el 1 de abril de 1605. Ejemplar sin las 4 h. finales de índice como es habitual, aunque presenta 4 h. de tabla en los preliminares. Palau, 82752: “A la mayoría de los ejemplares conocidos les faltan las 4 h. finales de índice”; Salvá no lo cita; Heredia, 1671. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Leiden, Officina Plantiniana, Franciscus Raphelingius the younger, 1605. Folio. pp. (xvi), 378, (10); 52; (xii), 242, (2), with engraved title, two woodcut maps of the Hellespont and Alexandria, and 275 woodcuts in text (96 non-botanical). (Together with:) CLUSIUS, C. Curae posteriores, seu plurimarum non ante cognitarum.... Leiden, ex officina Plantiniana Raphelengii, 1611. pp. (6), 71, 24, with engraved title and 34 woodcuts. Bound in 2 contemporary mottled calf bindings, richly gilt ornamented spines with gilt lettered labels (some minor skilful repairs). First edition of the two volumes of L'Écluse's collected works, including the rare portrait in the Rariorum, which is almost always lacking./I. First edition. The first part of the work synthesises material presented in L'Écluse's 'Rariorum aliquot Stirpium per Pannoniam et Austriam Observatarum Historia', Antwerp 1583 and his 'Rariorum aliquot Stirpium per Hispanias...' Antwerp 1576, along with additions describing new plants. It is followed by the 'Fungorum historia', the first published treatise on fungi, which L'Écluse had composed during his stay with the Count of Batthyam in Hungary, Giovanni Pona's 'Plantae quae in Baldo Monte reperiuntur', and letters of Honorius Belli and Tobias Roelsius. Approximately one hundred new species are described for the first time./The engraved title has a fine architectural border with representations of Adam and Solomon, and Theophrastus and Dioscorides, surrounded by pots of exotic plants, such as lilies and tulips (the latter were introduced into European cultivation by L'Écluse). The portrait, signed D. Gheyn, depicts L'Écluse in an oval cartouche incorporating a coat-of-arms and surrounded by pots of tulips, lilies, fritillaries, etc., two winged Naiads emerging from cornucopiae overflowing with plants, tiaras of sea-urchins on their heads, nuts, seeds, and corals strewn below./Of the 1109 woodcuts, 233 are from the Spanish flora and 356 from the Austro-Hungarian flora, and were cut by Gerard van Kampen after drawings by L'Écluse and Pieter van der Borcht. The remaining blocks were cut by the son of Virgil Solis in Frankfurt./II. First edition of the sequel to the author's 'Rariorum plantarum historia', 1601, containing further works not published in the former, and mostly devoted to exotic plants and animals. The first six books, Libri I-VI, are new writings by L'Écluse, devoted to new species of plants, animals, and natural history products from the New World, Southeast Asia, Africa, etc. This work is important for the number of new descriptions of non-European plants (and some animals) it contains, among which is the first published record and illustration of a South African plant. 'It is of particular importance to us in containing an illustration of a dried inflorescence of Protea neriifolia. Clusius provided a full description of the specimen, which he referred to as an 'elegant thistle' (Carduus), and reported that it was collected at Antongil Bay on the north-east coast of Madagascar during a Dutch trading expedition to Java in 1597. The locality recorded was clearly incorrect and there can be no doubt that the specimen must have been picked up during a call for fresh water somewhere along the Cape coast. It has the distinction of being the first known botanical object to have reached Europe from South Africa' (Todd and Gunn, Botanical exploration of South Africa p. 13)./There is an extensive account of exotic seeds sent to him by various explorers. Libri VII-X comprise L' Écluse's translations, with commentary, of da Orta, Acosta, and Monardes. This is followed by further works by Monardes translated by L'Écluse, entitled 'Libri tres, magna medicina secreta et varia experimenta continentes' (on the bezoar stone, iron, snow, etc), 'Libellus de rosa' and 'Dissertatiuncula de citriis'. This is followed by the 'Altera appendix', intended as a supplement to the 'Rariorum plantarum historiae', and L'Écluse's translations of and commentaries on Belon, the 'Plurimarum singularium & memorabilium rerum in Graecia, Asia, Aegypto, Iudaea, Arabia, aliisque exteris provinciis ab ipso conspectarum observationes' and the 'De neglecta plantarum libellus'. Followed by the separately printed 'Curae Posteriores' which is the last supplement of his Opera Omnia. The engraved title of the 'urae Posteriores' is browned.//Provenance: Name of N.
