        Daniae Regnum. Per Gerardum Mercatorem Cum Privilegio.

      *** Kort over Danmark udarbejdet af den nyere tids største kartograf, Gerard Mercator. Kobberstik. 37 x 44 cm. [ Udgivet af Jodocus Hondius i Amsterdam ca. 1606 ]. Gammel - formentlig samtidig - håndkolorering. Papiret er med vertikal midterfold som ved udgivelsen. God og typisk kolorering af en tidlig udgave af Mercators Danmarkskort. I en nyere sølvramme med passepartout fra Brock Rammer. Rammen måler 49 x 58 cm. - Fra en udgave af Mercators Atlas med latinsk tekst. Kortet blev første gang publiceret i år 1595.. Gerard Mercator (1512-1594). Mercator var aktiv som astronom, kalligraf, kartograf, kobberstikker, instrumentmager, globusmager og landmåler. Han var på en og samme tid videnskabsmand og kunsthåndværker.I de sidste mange år af sit liv arbejdede Mercator på at udgive sine kort i 3 bind. Her blev navnet Atlas for første gang anvendt om en samling af kort. De første to bind af Mercators Atlas blev udgivet i 1585 og 1589, tredie og sidste bind - med Skandinavien og de Arktiske områder - udkom i 1595, året efter Mercators død. I 1602 udkom værket igen i en komplet udgave. Herefter var det ikke længere Mercators arvinger, der stod for udgivelsen af det højt ansete værk.I år 1604 købte Jodocus Hondius kobberpladerne, og i de næste ca. 30 år udsendte Jodocus Hondius og sønnerne Henricus og Jodocus II mange udvidede udgaver af Mercators Atlas - på flere forskellige sprog - som dominerede korthandelen i den første trediedel af det 17. århundrede

        De Reliquis Animalibus exanguibus libri quatuor, post mortem eius editi: Nempe de Mollibus, Crustaceis, Testaceis, et Zoophytis...

      Bononiae, apud B. Bellagambam, 1606. Folio (335 x 225mm). pp. (8), 593, (29), including an engraved allegorical title, an engraved portrait of Aldrovandi and about 600 partly full-page woodcuts in the text. Contemporary calf, richly decorated gilt spine in 6 compartments, gilt borderlines on covers (old repair to hinges and spine laid down). Rare first edition of the first major work on shells with the very often lacking engraved portrait of Aldrovandi. Aldrovandi was a truly Renaissance universal mind, writing on many aspects of natural history. His oeuvre consists of 13 large folio volumes, of which only 4 appeared during his lifetime. "Although Aldrovandi is not identified with any revolutionary discoveries, his work as a teacher and as the author of volumes that constitute an irreplacable 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 I, pp. 108-110). The work deals likewise with crustacea and zoophytes. A fine and clean copy.//Provenance: heraldic bookplate of John Duke of Bedford and heraldic bookplate of the Earl of Essex on verso of title.//Nissen ZBI. 68; B.M.(Nat. Hist.)I, 26.

        Five Books

      London - Humfrey Lownes 1606 - A very scarce first edition of Richard Field's Of the Church. Bound in vellum. First edition. Very scarce. Richard Field (1561-1616) was an English ecclesiological theologian associated with the work of Richard Hooker. Field was a close friend and associate of Hooker, who was the pre-eminent Anglican theologian of his day, and one of the most influential figures in Anglican history. Field's major work, Of the Church (1606), was an affirmation of the Church of England against the Roman Catholic Church. Field maintained that Anglican piety and polity continued the pre-Tridentine Catholic conciliar tradition. Field's principal work, Of the Church, Five Bookes, was first published in London in 1606, printed by Humfrey Lownes and dedicated to the archbishop of Canterbury, Richard Bancroft. In fact this volume contained only the first four books. Another impression, with many errata corrected, was printed by Nicholas Okes, probably in 1614, but still dated 1606 on the title-page, and with the printer's name omitted. - DNBWe can find only one copy currently for sale and this is the second edition at 1250. Condition: The binding is tight and firm. There is some mild wear to the extremities, including some discolouration. Internally the pages are bright, with some handling marks. There are ink inscriptions on the title page and the occasional ink marking throughout the text. There are some tidemarks that do not encroach on the text. Page 179's corner is torn away with slight loss to a few letters of text on the following page. There are waterstains from page 61 to 81, with damage to pages 67 to 69, as shown in the photograph above where pages have stuck together but repairable with skill. There is slight evidence of past worming. There is a closed tear to the title page, which can be easily repaired. Overall the condition is very good for its age.

(527-565) geschaffenen Kodifikation des römischen Rechts, bearbeitet durch den bedeutenden, französischen Juristen Dionysius Gothofredus (1549-1622). Seit dem 13. Jhdt. kennt man für das große Gesetzeswerk der Spätantike die Bezeichnung Corpus iuris civilis'. Ende des 16. Jahrhunderts faßte der Rechtsgelehrte Gothofredus die gesamten textkritischen Arbeiten zusammen und publizierte eine eigene Ausgabe mit Kommentaren und exegetischen Noten. Diese von Gothofredus bearbeitete Version nennt man auch Littera Gothfrediana', sie hatte bis in das 19. Jahrhundert hinein Gültigkeit, wo sie schließlich durch die Edition des Theodor Mommsen abgelöst wurde. Die Bearbeitung G.'s wurde mehr als fünfzigmal neu aufgelegt, darunter, alleine zu dessen Lebzeiten, dreimal in verschiedenen Ausgaben (Die erste erschien mit einem kurzen Kommentar 1583, die kommentarlose zweite 1587 und die dritte samt Glossen 1589).

Wellcome 228. Catalina Garcia 805. Brunet I, 197. Salvá 2683: "La primera parte es obra curiosa y singular; la segunda, que es el diccionario médico falta en muchos ejemplares y aún en los que se encuentra suele esta en mal estado: por lo mismo un ejemplar tan hermoso como el mío es una verdadera rareza."

Hernández Morejón, Historia bibliográfica de la medicina española, Madrid 1842, IV, páginas 108-111. Ex-libris del Conde de Montealegre Oñate y Los Arcos. Magnífico ejemplar de la primera edición de esta rarísima obra sobre la obstetricia, completo con la segunda parte que suele faltar.El autor nació en Daimiel (Ciudad Real) y estudió medicina en la Universidad de Alcalá de Henares, de la que fue catedrático. Se trasladó posteriormente a la Universidad de Bolonia. En este tratado que está lleno de observaciones sacadas de la realidad de su propia experienca como médico Alonso explica los cuidados que 'han de prestarse a la mujer en el embarazo, se describe la asistencia al parto, los cometidos de la comadre y el modo como ha de realizarse la extracción del feto muerto; uno de los "privilegios" habla del aborto provocado mencionando las substancias consideradas abortivas. También trata de la esterilidad, de cómo saber el sexo del feto, sobre si el antojo de la preñada es natural o no, sobre la supuesta licitud de dar remedios y utilizar recursos para ocultar la pérdida de la virginidad etc.Hernandez Morejón en 1842 dice "Esta obra fue digna de ocupar un lugar en el Diccionario de los libros raros y curiosos limpia de todas las credulidades del tiempo en que fue escrita, debiera hallarse en manos de todo médico". Del Diccionario de nombres dice que es "muy útil y, sin duda debe consultar el que intente escribir un diccionario tecnológico, de que carecemos en España."

        Segunda Parte de la Historia General del Mundo, de XV años del tiempo del Senor Rey don Felipe II el Prudente, desde el ano del MDLXXI hasta el de MDLXXXV

      Iuan Godinez de Millis, Valladolid 1606 - [xlii]+[blank]+630 pages. Quarto (11" x 7 3/4") bound in original vellum. First edition. He published Historia general del Mundo, written in the time of Philip II and divided into three parts, each of which is divided into books, and each book into chapters. The first part covers the years from 1559 to 1574 (although it begins with the marriage of Philip II, before his accession, to Mary I of England in 1554) and was published in Madrid in 1601 and in Valladolid in 1606, after which an improved second edition appeared. The second part covers the period from 1575 to 1585 and was published at the same time as the first, also appearing in a later second edition. Finally, the third part was published in Madrid in 1612, and covers the period from 1585 to 1598, ending with the death of the king. In it the author relates the "tumult, rebellions, acts of sedition and treason, uprisings, wars between peoples, captures of cities and castles, sackings, fires, truces, accords, broken treaties, massacres, deaths of princes, and other events from 1554 to 1598." He does not limit himself to the history of Spain, but makes reference to Africa, Asia, the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea, the Pacific Ocean, and the Americas. Condition: Vellum split at hinges, ties missing, internally very good. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        APOLOGIA CONTRO Le CONSIDERATIONI Di FRA PAOLO Da VENEZIA, dell' Ordine de Servi. Sopra le Censvre della Santitˆ di N.S. papa Paolo Qvinto e Contro il Trattato de sette Theologi di Venezia, sopra l'Interdetto di Sua Santitˆ. Divisa in Dve Parti, Doue si tratta della Potestˆ, e Libertˆ Ecclesiastica.

      Per Vincenzo Colombara,, In Pervgia: 1606 - Printer's device to t.p. Head- tailpieces. Decorative initial capital letters. Pope Paul, a lawyer-type individual vice a consensus diplomat, insisted on, for all practical purposes, a ubquitous ecclesiastical jurisdiction, which caused a number of quarrels between the Church and the secular governments of various states, notably Venice. In 1606, "Venice passed two laws obnoxious to Paul, one forbidding the alienation of real estate in favour of the clergy, the second demanding approval of the civil power for the building of new churches (in essence, a Venetian stance that the powers of the church must remain separate from those of the state). Two priests had been found guilty and committed to prison. Paul insisted that they be released to the Church. The Venetian position was ably defended by a canon lawyer, Paolo Sarpi, who extended the matter to general principles defining separate secular and ecclesiastical spheres. In April 1606 the Pope excommunicated the entire government of Venice and placed an interdict on the city. The rest of the Catholic clergy sided with the city, however, with the exception of the Jesuits, the Theatines, and the Capuchins, who were expelled from Venetian territories. Masses continued to be said in Venice, and the feast of Corpus Christi was celebrated with displays of public pomp and "magnificence", in defiance of the Pope. Within a year (March 1607) the disagreement was mediated by France and Spain. The Most Serene Republic refused to retract the laws, but asserted that Venice would conduct herself 'with her accustomed piety.' The Jesuits, which Venice considered subversive Papal agents, remained banned. No more could be expected. Paul withdrew his censure." [Wiki].

        The Historie of Justine. Containing a narration of kingdoms, from the beginning of the Assyrian monarchy, unto the raigne of the emperor Augustus. Whereunto is newly added a briefe collection of the lives and manners of all the emperours succeeding, unto the Emp. Rodulphus now raigning. [ ] newly translated into English, by G.W.

      William Iaggard, London 1606 - Small Folio. ff. [8], 138, [40]. The first part includes a woodcut illustration of Solon, decorative initials and head and tail pieces. The second part [40 unnumbered leaves] contains a separate title page – "An Epitomie of the lives and manners of the Roman emperors taken out of the bookes of Sext. Aurelius Victor" – as well as numismatic portraits of the first 12 Roman emperors (Julius Caesar through Domitian). Early calf boards well rubbed, but treated and preserved; re-backed with gilt stamped spine. Rear blank leaf is intact; the front blank leaf may have been replaced with a sheet of early paper of a similar type. Pages are generally clean with occasional mild spots of marginal smudging; a small amount of marginal worming is present on the fore edge, above the lower right corner; the upper edge of the text block is closely trimmed, occasionally nicking the running titles. The inside front cover contains the dated armorial book plate of Henry Somerset 2nd Duke of Beaufort (1684-1714) – "The Most Noble Henry – Duke of Beaufort 1705-"; the inner rear cover has a bookplate from Julius Berzunza’s Alexander the Great collection. English translation of Justinus’s Epitome of Pompeius Trogus’ lost work "Historiae Philippicae" on the history of the Macedonians and their empire. This edition of Justinus is of interest to SHAKESPEARE STUDIES. The translator "G.W." was George Wilkins (1578-1618), an associate of Shakespeare, a fellow member of the King’s Company of Actors, and the most likely co-author of Shakespeare’s late drama "Pericles, Price of Tyre." Pollard’s English Short-Title Catalogue first identified Wilkins as the translator of the 1606 Justinus. (Wilkins actually plagiarized much of the translation from Arthur Golding’s earlier English edition). In 1965 the scholar E.A.J. Honigmann confirmed the Wilkins ascription by showing how a passage lifted from Sydney’s "Arcadia" was used in both the "Historie of Justine" and in Wilkins’s 1608 novel "The Painful Adventures of Pericles, Prince of Tyre." The novel was based on Shakespeare’s play (performed in 1607 and published in 1609). In addition Wilkins’s "Pericles" re-uses part of the dedication which he wrote for the Justinus. A number of scholars over the years have argued that Wilkins was the co-author of Shakespeare’s Pericles play. The theory that some of Shakespeare’s later works were co-authored has created controversy amongst scholars who do not want to believe that the great bard would stoop to working with mediocre writers like Wilkins. Scholarship, however, has produced mounting evidence supporting the co-authorship scenario. Scholars have also examined the possibility that some passages in the Wilkins’s Pericles novel preserve parts of the original play. In 1987 the state of scholarship was such that the Oxford edition of the "Complete Works of Shakespeare" included the play as a reconstructed text and drew "more heavily than usual on Wilkins’s novel." [Vickers, p.313] An important study by Prof. Brian Vickers, Senior Fellow at the School of Advanced Study at the University of London, appears to definitively establish the co-authorship theory. (See Vickers, "Shakespeare, Co-Author; A Historical Study of Five Collaborative Plays," Oxford U. Press, 2002). This edition of Justinus is scarce at auction. [ESTC S117759, STC (2nd ed.) 24293].

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.

It is followed by Cespedes' explanation of how the town of Burgos should have channeled water from one place to another: the city officials ignored his advice, spent considerable money on a project that failed, and then had no money to redo the project according to Cespedes' advice. Finally, there is an essay on the best range for artillery, written at the request of a lieutenant general of artillery in Lisbon, to settle a dispute between him and some colleagues.Garcia de Cespedes (d. 1611), an astronomer and mathematician, was royal cosmographer.

        Maris Pacifici

      John Norton, London 1606 - Single sheet, float mounted and framed (21 4/8 x 27 2/8 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-colour in full. THE FIRST PRINTED MAP TO BE DEVOTED TO THE PACIFIC OCEAN AND TO SHOW AN EARLY DEPICTION OF THE WEST COAST OF AMERICA. This map, from the VERY RARE LONDON EDITION, WITH TEXT IN ENGLISH ON THE VERSO, was one of the most important that appeared in Abraham Ortelius's "Theatrum orbis terrarum". 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 par tof 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 Pacfici Ocean" (Cohen). From the RARE ENGLISH EDITION OF ORTELIUS'S "THEATRUM", based on the Latin edition of Ortelius's atlas, published by Vrients in 1603. Before sending the plates from Antwerp to England, the versos were erased, the English text then being printed at the Eliot's Court Press by Bradwood. The likely translator of the text from Latin into Englis

Description of the present volume cut from Manuel Ferreira catalogue of ca. 1975-1980 is tipped in before rear pastedown endleaf. ---- 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. Many of these were written and published in reaction to the hispanization of the language during the Babylonian Captivity (1580-1640).Duarte Nunes de Leão had earlier published the @Orthographia da lingua portuguesa (Lisbon, 1576), an imperfect copy of which, lacking the four preliminary leaves, 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 (and 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.

      Blaeu 1606 - Willem Blaeu (1571-1638) “Nova Totius Terrarum Orbis Geographica acltydrogrphica Tabula” Amsterdam: 1606 Hand-colored copperplate engraving 31" x 35" framed This classic single-sheet world map on Mercator's projection, first brought out by Blaeu in 1606, remained in active circulation, for over 50 years. It is celebrated as one of the supreme examples of the mapmaker's art and was later reprinted in atlas form. The most striking characteristics of Blaeu's map are the superb border decorations. Along the top are allegorical representations of the sun and moon and the five known planets, while each side has four panels illustrating the elements and the four seasons, and along the bottom are seven vignettes showing the seven wonders of the world. Blaeu maps are immediately recognizable by the beauty of their ornamentation. Whereas 16th century publishers had decorated their maps with strapwork designs in black and white, Blaeu's maps were embellished with decorative swags, symbols, coats of arms, city views and large pictorial cartouches, and were hand-colored in the Baroque taste. As official cartographer to the Dutch East India Company, Blaeu had access to information regarding geographical discoveries that was unavailable to any of his competitors. Blaeu published his first world atlas, the Atlantis Appendix, with 60 maps in 1630, and continued to produce new maps at such a rate that by 1634, he abandoned the single volume format and announced his intention to publish a new world atlas, entitled the Theatrum, which became the most monumental cartographic publication of the 17th century. The acclaim that Blaeu's maps receive is based upon their extremely high production standards and geographical sophistication. The splendid side decoration is one of Blaeu's most recognizable decorative flourishes, and the quality of the engraving, the paper, and coloring are of the highest order, placing Blaeu's work at the forefront of seventeenth-century cartography. The maps are embellished in the Baroque style, and many, especially the world map, the centerpiece of the atlas, rank among the most beautiful ever made.

        Theatrum orbis Terrarum

      London: John Norton, 1606. RARE MAP FROM THE SOLE ENGLISH EDITION OF ORTELIUS THEATRUM ORBIS TERRARUM Hand-colored copperplate engraving from Theatrum orbis terrarum Ortelius's Theatrum orbis terrarum appeared only once in English. Dedicated to King James I, the London edition of 1606 was published by John Norton. In addition to being the sole English edition of the Theatrum, the London redaction was limited to a relatively small print run, with the result that the atlas, as well as maps from it that bear English text on their verso, are exceptionally rare. The process by which the volume was prepared for publication was also unique in the history of cartography. The maps were printed in Antwerp, then shipped to London, where the text, newly translated into English by William Bedwell, was printed on the verso of each map by Eliot's Court Press. This singular situation is the only known instance in which maps were engraved in one country, their text added in another.. Book.
