        REGIMIENTO DE NAVEGACION Q[UE] MANDO HASER EL REI NUESTRO SEÑOR POR ORDEN DE SU CONSEIO REAL DE LAS INDIAS A ANDRES GARCIA DE CESPEDES SU COSMOGRAFO MAIOR

      Madrid, 1606. Folio. 20th-century vellum and pastepaper boards, boards and spine gilt. Modern bookplate on front pastedown. Moderate dampstaining in first dozen leaves (including engraved title), occasional instances of light dampstaining and light foxing in remainder of volume. Clean tear in lower right corner of map repaired. Later pencil marks and some marginalia in Spanish, small contemporary ink inscription in margin of map. Overall, a very good copy. First and only edition of this early 17th-century Spanish navigation manual, complete with an engraved world map. García de Cespedes, who served as Royal Cosmographer to Felipe III and held the chair of cosmographer at the navigators' school in Seville, relied on some information on navigation and mathematics attributed to Pedro Nuñez, but the work is substantially his own. The volume consists of separate sections, each with its own titlepage, devoted to navigation and hydrography, and woodcut illustrations of diagrams and instruments are found throughout. The final chapter provides instructions for navigation in the Americas with sailing directions for the West Indies, Veracruz, and Havana, as well as from Spain to Rio de la Plata, the Straits of Magellan, and the Pacific coast of South America. The text also includes documents relating to the dispute between Spain and Portugal regarding the line of demarcation between those countries' territories in the New World as initially created by papal decree in 1493. The folding engraved world map consists of twelve gores and is "without title or decoration other than four compass roses. The lines of demarcation between the Spanish and Portuguese sectors of influence are shown. The gores are probably not intended to be more than illustrative although the west coast of South America has been noted as being surprisingly accurate for the time" (Shirley).

        Madrigali di Mutio Manfredi il Fermo Academico Olimpico &c. Sopra molti soggetti strauaganti composti, ne men di tre, ne piu di cinquanta sono per ciascun soggetto .

      appresso Roberto Meglietti, Venice 1606 - FIRST EDITION.12mo. pp. [x] 374. A-Q12. Italic letter. Title within fine engraved architectural border incorporating the printer’s device below, of two cockerels eating corn, the arms of the dedicatee Luigi Capponi above, putti at sides with the figures of Justice and Beauty above, woodcut initials and headpieces, typographical and woodcut ornaments. Some very light age yellowing in places. A very good copy, crisp and clean, in earlier limp vellum from an antiphonal leaf. First edition of these madrigals by Manfredo Muzio, dedicated to the Cardinal Luigi Capponi, most of which are addressed to women. Manfredi, a poet and dramatist from Cesena, was a member of the noble Manfredi family of Faenza. He was employed at the French court in Nancy as secretary to the Duchess of Brunswick, where he wrote much of his most famous work. He was extremely well connected in Italian literary circles, Diomede Borghesi in one of his letters refers to having met him with Tasso and describes him as "da costumi preclarissimi, e da bellisima letteratura". He is best remembered now for his plays however he wrote a considerable amount of poetry, nearly all of which was addressed to, and in praise of, female contemporaries. "Perhaps the supreme exponent in this period of the role of "celebrant of women" was the poet and courtier Muzio Manfredi of Fermo (1535 - 1607), a ubiquitous figure in the academic culture of the time, though now best remembered as a dramatist. (Semiramis [1593]). In his long career, Manfredi published numerous volumes of poetry, mainly madrigals, almost all devoted to the praise of women. One of his first works published, the anthology ‘Per donne romane’, of 1575, is prefaced by an open letter "to the ladies" (Alle donne) in which Manfredi speaks of himself as having "placed all my efforts and study in that manner of letters I thought pleasing to you and most fitted to exalt your fame: that is the excellency of poetry, a truly divine art and one appropriate to your divinity." This devotion is manifested in four further volumes, ‘Cento donne cantate’ (1580), ‘Cento madrigali’ (1587), Cento sonetti . in lode delle donne di Ravenna (1602), and ‘Madrigali . sopra molti soggetti stravaganti composti’ (1606), the first three entirely devoted to women, the last including a handful of poems to men. . Compositely, these volumes portray Manfredi as engaged in an admiring and flirtatious dialogue not only with the cream of Italian aristocratic womanhood but also with ‘donne virtuose’, as he refers to them in ‘Il contrasto amoroso’." Virginia Cox, ‘Women's writing in Italy, 1400-1650.’ Many of the poems addressed to women in this collection are prefaced by a short note describing their relationship, or an event from her life and many of them are addressed to prominent women writers, actors and singers. An excellent copy of this rare first edition. BM STC It. C17th p. 527. Not in Gamba. See Axel Erdmann "My Gracious Silence" 16 for a description of another of his collection of Madrigals dedicated to women. Italian [Attributes: Soft Cover]

      Roberto Meietti,, Treviso, 1606 - Treviso, Roberto Meietti, 1606. Kl.-8°. 8 n.n. Bl. 715 S. 2 weisse Blatt. Pergamentband der Zeit mit handschriftlichem Rückentitel. Hirsch I, 689. - HOH 195. - Krivatsy 2344. - Erste Ausgabe unter diesem Titel. Ein Teil des Textes erschien in Rom 1602 unter dem Titel "Artis medica" sowie in Frankfurt 1605 unter dem Titel "Katoptron". Das Werk beschreibt und vertieft die Ideen von Andreas Cesalpino (1519-1603) über den Verlauf des Blutes von den Venen in die Arterien und erweitert seine erstmals 1571 beschriebenen und in den "Peripateticarum quaestionum" gedruckten Beobachtungen zum Blutkreislauf. Er war der Erste, der den Begriff "Circulatio sanguinis" in die Wissenschaft einführte. Es muss davon ausgegangen werden, dass William Harvey die Schriften von Cesalpino kannte und wesentliche Teile daraus übernahm. Der Band enthält viele andere Hinweise zur medizinischen Praxis und behandelt ausführlich Drogen. Cesalpino gilt als der wichtigste Botaniker der italienischen Renaissance, daneben arbeitete er als Mediziner und langjähriger Direktor des botanischen Gartens in Pisa. 1582 wurde er Leibarzt von Papst Clemens VIII. - Einzelne Lagen leicht gebräunt, sonst sehr gut erhaltenes Exemplar in gutem Einband. Sprache: Lateinisch / Latin Pergamentband der Zeit mit handschriftlichem Rückentitel. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Maison Rustique, or, The Countrey Farme

      Printed by Arnold Hatfield for Iohn Norton and John Bill, London 1606 - A ROYAL BINDING 4to. pp. (xxx), 901, (xxvii), lacking first blank. Roman Letter. Woodcut printer’s device on title, text on verso within typographical border, woodcut initials, head and tail-pieces. Full page woodcuts of the horse and ox respectively indicating their common ailments, half page cuts of the root ‘Mehoacan’ (from Chinchillia in the New World), and of the tobacco plant, 20 pages of plans for knot gardens, six large and four small illustrations of distillation equipment and three half page cuts of land measuring equipment in landscape (one with figures). C17/ C18 autograph of Robert Welborne at head of title page, contemporary autograph of Joan[nes] Cobould [?] beneath. Armourial book-plate of Mark Dinely on fly C19 baronial book-plate on pastedown. Last few leaves creased at fore-edge, a few little marginal holes to first and last leaves. A very good clean copy in contemporary triple blind-stamped calf, a bit worn in the normal places, arms of King James I gilt stamped on both covers, title gilt on spine. Second English edition, charmingly illustrated with numerous woodcuts, of the Maison Rustique translated by the physician Richard Sarflet, the last English edition before the text was edited with additions by Gervaise Markham. Surflet’s translation of L’Agriculture et Maison Rustique by Estienne and Liebaut (who had in turn translated Estienne’s Latin with many of his own additions), is a "voluminous treatise’ similar in scope and intent to Barnaby Googe’s Foure Bookes of Husbandrie (1577) covering ‘family life, rural diversions, and the curious medical practices of the time, as well as the principles of farming, including the layout of a farm" (Fussell, The Old English Farming Books, 12-13). The Maison Rustique was the great country encyclopaedia of the C16th. Where and how to build your house, forecast the weather, treat the ailments of your laborers, beasts and fowl, lay out and care for your kitchen, herb and pleasure gardens, tend fruit trees and bees, make preserves, conserve flowers, fruit and other foodstuffs, manufacture medicines, cider and wines, distill spirits and oils, maintain lawns, meadows and fishponds, and bake pastries and bread. The less domestic side of the rural economy - agriculture, horticulture forestry and viticulture - is treated in the greatest detail. The final sections, which did not appear in the early editions, deal with parks, wild beasts and birds of all sorts, hunting (by Clamorgan) and grazing (by De la Court). There is also a section on tobacco and a regional survey of the wines of France. Fortunately there is a comprehensive index. "The second translation, the Countrie farme (1600), was a massive compendium of agricultural, horticultural, and veterinary information, theories and superstitions. It was one of the most influential Renaissance books dedicated to the improvement of farming methods. Medicine had strong affinities with rural things, in a predominantly agricultural world relying much on herbal remedies. Five chapters are devoted to "phisicke herbes",' in addition to many passing recipes for herbal medicines. A long chapter deals with the husbandman's illnesses, really a general medical compendium: "The remedies which a good huswife must be acquainted withall, for to helpe her people when they be sicke". The volume, in both its French and English versions, has at the end a "table of the diseases and remedies described", in which human and animal maladies are listed together without distinction." ML Cooke, ‘Richard Surflet’. A very good copy of this influential work. STC 10548. Goldsmiths’ 351. Alden 606/46 "contents refers to tobacco, turkeys, etc." Fussell p.13; Kress 273.

        PRATTICA MANUALE DELL'ARTIGLIERIA. Dove si tratta dell'eccellenza, & origine dell'Arte Militare, e delle Machine usate da gli antichi; Dell'inventione della Polvere, & Artiglieria; del modo di condurla per Acqua, e per Terra, e piantarla in qual si voglia Impresa; di Fabricar le Mine per mandar' in aria Fortezze, e Montagne; di Fuochi Artificiali; e di varij secreti, & importantissimi avvertimenti all'uso della Guerra utilissimi, e necessarij. E nel fine d'un molto copioso, & importante Essamine de' Bombardieri. Opera di grandissmo giovamento ad ogni Officiale, e Soldato, che seguiti la Guerra, & à chi si diletta di essa per quanto convenga alla professione Soldatesca.

      Per Girolamo Bordoni, e Pietromartire Locarni 1606 Opera dedicata a Don Federico Landi. Cm.27x21,1. Pg.(20), 388. Legatura in piena pergamena rigida. Marca tipografica al frontespizio, con tre alberi in ricca cornice ornamentale e il motto "Crescit occulto". Antica notazione di proprietà cancellata al frontespizio. Opera adorna di 67 incisioni nel testo e 16 fuori testo, ripiegate. Cartigli, capilettera e finalini incisi. Restauro cartaceo alla pg.295 - 296. Buona impressione. Si tratta di un'opera che vide la luce per la prima volta a Venezia per i Tipi di Pietro Dusinelli nel 1586, uno dei primi trattati scritti sull'argomento per la penna di un militare spagnolo, Luis Collado. Una nuova edizione in lingua spagnola, completamente riveduta, apparve nel 1592, la "Practica manuale de artilleria", ed è su di essa che è stata condotta la presente traduzione italiana. Luys Collado (o Colliado), al servizio della corona di Spagna come capitano dell'esercito in Italia, discetta di balistica, polvere da sparo, tecniche militari e di attacco, mine e fuochi d'artificio, arricchendo il testo di un imponente apparato iconografico esplicativo. > Cockle, "A Bibliography of military books", 668, "The Pratica Manuale", in its second form, is sufficiently different to be considered a distinct work. Collado, dissatisfied, probably, with the first attempt, rewrote the book in his native tongue". D'Ayala, 142. Codice libreria 116258.

        Regimiento de Navegacion q[ue] mando haser el Rei Nuestro Señor por orden de su conseio real de las Indias a Andres Garcia de Cespedes su Cosmografo Maior

      Juan de la Cuesta, Madrid 1606 - (11 1/8 x 7 1/2 inches). Letterpress title to part II. Engraved title to part I, 1 engraved folding map, numerous woodcut diagrams. (Appreciable old dampstaining to engraved title and the following leaves to B2, I4-L6, Z1 to the end). Early 20th-century vellum, covers panelled in gilt and blind with central lozenge-shaped arabesque ornament blocked in gilt, the flat spine with fillets in gilt and blind, and author, title and date of publication in gilt Provenance: "Capuchinos el Cubas" (early inscription on verso of title to second part) First and only edition of this early 17th-century Spanish navigation manual, complete with an engraved world map. García de Cespedes served as Royal Cosmographer to Phillip III of Spain and held the chair of cosmography at the navigators' school in Seville. He took some of the information on navigation and mathematics from a source which is attributed to Pedro Nuñez, but the present work is otherwise substantially his own. It consists of two separate sections, each with its own titlepage, devoted to navigation and hydrography, and there are approximately 110 woodcut diagrams and illustrations of instruments - about 92 in the first part and 18 in the second. The final chapter is particularly interesting: it provides instructions for navigation in the Americas with sailing directions for the West Indies, Veracruz and Havana as well as instructions from Spain to Rio de la Plata, the Straits of Magellan, and the Pacific coast of South America. The text also includes documents relating to the dispute between Spain and Portugal regarding the line of demarcation between those countries' territories in the New World as initially created by Papal decree in 1493. The folding engraved world map consists of twelve gores and is "without title or decoration other than four compass roses. The lines of demarcation between the Spanish and Portuguese sectors of influence are shown. The gores are probably not intended to be more than illustrative although the west coast of South America has been noted as being surprisingly accurate for the time" (Shirley).

      Amsterdam: Gerardum Mercatorum. Original oblong Map with irelands north directed to the west. Unusually excellent condition with decorative title cartouche.. Amsterdam, Gerardum Mercatorum, 1606. Original handcoloured engraving. The engraving (the plate) itself 35 cm high x 42.5 cm wide. Mounted: 56 cm wide x 50.5 cm high. Original oblong Map with irelands north directed to the west. Unusually excellent condition with decorative title cartouche. Gerardus Mercator (born 5 March 1512 in Rupelmonde, County of Flanders (in modern Belgium), died 2 December 1594 in Duisburg, United Duchies of Jülich-Cleves-Berg, (modern-day Germany)) was a cartographer, philosopher and mathematician. He is best known for his work in cartography, in particular the world map of 1569 based on a new projection which represented sailing courses of constant bearing as straight lines. He was the first to use the term "atlas" for a collection of maps. (Wikipedia)

        De reliquis animalibus exanguibus libri quatuor, post mortem eius editi: nempe de mollibus, crustaceis, testaceis, et zoophytis.

      Bologna, Giovanni Battista Bellagamba, 1606 [colophon 1605] - Folio (355 x 238 mm), pp [viii, including engraved title and portrait] 593 [recte 595] 29, with engraved title, engraved portrait, and ca 600 woodcuts in text; two small old marginal repairs to title (pre-binding), paper flaw on T1 not affecting text, blank corner of Qq[6] torn away, a very fine, crisp, clean copy on thick paper, in early eighteenth-century Italian vellum, spine gilt with greek key patterns and orange label, engraved bookplate and old ecclesiastical library stamp on recto of dedication leaf. £3250First edition, with the rare portrait, of Aldrovandi's treatise on molluscs, crustacea, and zoophytes, one of the earliest works devoted almost entirely to shells. This was the largest assembly of conchological illustrations and descriptions to date, and was part of Aldrovandi's massive zoological encyclopaedia, which was both a rival to and an extension of Gesner's great survey of the animal kingdom. Many of the descriptions and illustrations are based on specimens in Aldrovandi's own museum of natural history specimens. This volume was edited and published posthumously by Aldrovandi's widow Francesca. The Aldrovandi Museum in the University of Bologna preserves most of the woodblocks, the drawings for them, and many of the original specimens depicted.Aldrovandi (1522-1605), the great Bolognan naturalist, was inspired to study natural history by meeting Guillaume Rondelet in Rome, where Aldrovandi was obliged to go to defend himself against charges of heresy. 'Rondelet was then gathering material for his work on fishes. Aldrovandi, who accompanied the French physician to fish markets in order to study the various species, finally decided to study natural history, and began collecting specimens for his own museum.'Although Aldrovandi is not identified with any revolutionary discoveries, his work as a teacher and as the author of volumes that constitute an irreplaceable cultural patrimony earns him a place among the fathers of modern science. Perhaps most importantly, he was among the first to attempt to free the natural sciences from the stifling influence of the authority of textbooks, for which he substituted, as far as possible, direct study and observation of the animal, vegetable, and mineral worlds' (DSB).The portrait, often missing, is after Carracci according to Nissen.Nissen ZBI 68

Later inscriptions: "Da livraria de S. Cruz de Coimbra" (title-page recto), "Bibliotheca S. Crucis dono dedit Petrus Homo frade, cui Dns coelum donet" (title-page verso), and "Da livraria de S. Teotonio de Vianna 1757" (title-page recto). Bookplate of Louis Ausseil on front pastedown. ---- Very rare FIRST EDITION of this early study of the Portuguese language, with discussion of the earliest spoken and written languages in the Peninsula, the development of Portuguese from Latin, words borrowed from Greek, Arabic, French, Italian, German, Hebrew, Syriac and Gothic, words and phrases that are distinctively Portuguese, and why Portuguese is less familiar than Spanish to other Europeans. An interesting section covers "De alguns vocabulos que usão os plebeios, ou idiotas que os homens polidos não devem usar" (pp. 115-7).Beginning with Fernão de Oliveira's Portuguese grammar of 1536, the sixteenth century and early seventeenth centuries saw the publication of numerous works on the origin and orthography of Portuguese, partly in reaction to the hispanization of the language during the Babylonian captivity. Duarte Nunes de Lião had earlier published the @Orthographia da lingua portuguesa (Lisbon, 1576), an imperfect copy of which is bound with the present volume. Both works were collected and reprinted in a combined edition of Lisbon, 1784, and later editions; both, in fact, were until recently still in print.@@Duarte Nunes de Leão (ca. 1530-1608), whose name appears on the title page as Duarte Nunez de Lião (which is sometimes also given as Liam), historian, philologist, geographer and jurisconsult, was born at Évora and studied civil law at Coimbra. He eventually rose to the position of judge of the Casa da Supplicação (appeal tribunal). His many other published works include the @Repertorio dos cinquo livros das ordenacões (Lisbon, 1560), an important summary of Portuguese laws (updated by his @Leis extravagantes, Lisbon, 1569), @Chronicas dos Reis de Portugal (Lisbon, 1600), and @Descripção do Reino de Portugal (Lisbon, 1610).---- Innocêncio II, 210.

        Die Parabel von den fünf klugen und fünf törichten Jungfrauen (Matthäus 25, 1-13).

      - Folge von 5 Blatt Kupferstichen, 1606, auf Bütten, Blatt 3 mit Wasserzeichen: Lilienwappen und anhängendem HP (ligiert). Je ca. 26,1:36,6 cm. Literatur: Bartsch 2-6; Wurzbach 2-6; Hollstein 30, III (von III): mit Saenredams Adresse. Schöne kontrastreiche Drucke, meist knapp auf die Einfassungslinie geschnitten oder mit winzigem Rändchen um diese. – Kleine Fehlstellen und Einrisse sorgfältig restauriert, vertikale Falten geglättet. Das Motiv, eines der fünf Parabeln aus dem Neuen Testament, ist in der christlichen Kunst seit dem 4. Jahrhundert nachweisbar, war aber besonders im Mittelalter populär. Die fünf klugen und die fünf törichten Jungfrauen sind in ihrer Gesamtheit seit dem 12. Jahrhundert vollplastisch an Kirchenportalen zu sehen, so an der Brauttür des Magdeburger Doms, an der Westfassade des Straßburger Münsters, am Westportal der Kathedralen von Amiens, Bourges, Notre-Dame in Paris, Reims, Sens, Auxerre und Laon. Die von Jesus angeführten klugen Jungfrauen werden lächelnd, die nachfolgenden törichten Jungfrauen hingegen mit verzweifelter Miene dargestellt; die einen rechts, die anderen links vom göttlichen Richter. Es geht um die Vorbereitung auf das Reich Gottes, und damit um den Unterschied zwischen Auserwählung und Verdammung. So symbolisieren die klugen Jungfrauen, die sich vorausschauend mit Öl für ihre Öllampen versorgt haben, die christliche Seele, die sich in fünffacher Weise tugendhaft Gott zuwendet; die törichten Jungfrauen hingegen, die zwar Öllampen haben, aber diese nicht nachfüllten, symbolisieren fünf Arten der fleischlichen Lust und Verdammnis. Die Aufmerksamkeit des Künstlers, der das Geschehen in fünf Szenen wiedergibt, gilt in gleichen Teilen den tugendhaften, sich auf den Bräutigam vorbereitenden Jungfrauen, wie auch dem frivolen, ausschweifenden und selbstsüchtigen Handeln der Törichten.
