        Indiae Orientalis pars septima [.].

      Frankfurt, Wolfgang Richter, 1606. - Folio (210 x 319 mm). (4), 126, (4) pp.; 22 ff. Title within engraved figurative border. With an engraved vignette, 22 engraved plates (2 of which double-page). Contemp. brown calf with gilt borders and decoration on middle of covers; blindtooled spine rebacked. Traces of ties. Book seven of Théodore de Bry's "Petits Voyages", the greatest single collection of material on early voyages to the East Indies, which is considered unique in its extraordinary wealth of cartographical and visual material. Crucially, this much-sought volume includes Gasparo Balbi's groundbreaking account of the Middle East, first published in 1590 as "Viaggio dell' Indie Orientali" - a mere 16 years before this present issue, making this the second appearance in print altogether and the first Latin translation. Balbi, a Venetian jewel merchant, travelled extensively in the Arabian Peninsula in search of precious stones. From Venice he sailed for Aleppo, proceeding to Bir and from there overland to Baghdad, descending the Tigris to Basra, where he embarked for India. While in the Persian Gulf, he studied the pearl industry, noting that the best pearls were to be found at Bahrain and Julfar. He refers to islands in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi (including Sir Bani Yas and Das) and to several coastal settlements that were to become permanently established, such as Dubai and Ras al Khaima. Balbi was the first to record the place names along the coast of modern Qatar, the United Arab Emirates and Oman. Practically "none of the names of places on the coast between Qatar and Ras al Khaima occur in other sources before the end of the eighteenth century" (Slot). The volume also comprises the account of Joris von Spilbergen's voyage to Ceylon in 1601-04 (with excellent plates). - Calf slightly worn, some browning due to paper. Title browned in the margins; some foxing to plates. Contemporary ownership inscription of Thomas Knyvett in upper margin of title (partly obliterated by a later owner), dated 27 June 1608; also inscribed "perlegi (I finished reading) 20 Octob. 1608 Tho. Kny." near lower edge of the title. Armorial bookplate and later ownership of "T. Norcliffe" on inside of upper cover. Thomas Knyvet, 1st Baron Knyvet (also Knevytt, Knyvett, Knevett, Knevitt; 1545-1622) was an English courtier and Member of Parliament who played a part in foiling the Gunpowder Plot.

        De lo schermo o vero scienza d'arme. (2 Parts).

      Copenhagen, Henrik Waldkirch, 1606. Folio. Later marbled paper binding with handwritten title to spine. A neat repair to blank margin of title-page, no loss of imprint, and A3 with a repaired lower corner, resulting in loss of four words, supplied in old hand. Tiny loss to lower blank margin of last three leaves, far from affecting printing. Apart from that a very nice copy with only some light brownspotting to the first leaves. Engraved title-page inside a large composition in baroque-style (Jan Halbeeck) and on verso of title the Danish Royal Coat of arms (Halbeeck), engraved portrait of King Christian IV, to whom the work is dedicated (drawn and engraved by Nicolaus Andrea). Title to the second part with a large engraved portrait of Fabris (Nic. Andrea, after Melchior Lorck). (6), 256, (2) pp. The work comprises 190 splendid half-page engravings (ab 15 x 18 cm.), showing all sorts of difficult fencing positions, each with two naked fencers (engraved by Jan Halbeeck and Francesco Valeggio). The scarce first edition, first issue of this splendid work, which not only constitutes one of the most important works ever produced on combats with rapier and dagger, but also the first Danish book with copper-engravings and one of the absolute highlights of Danish book production. Chs. Richard Cammell in "Philobiblon" 1936 calls it "the most complete work produced in this art...It is also the first book printed in Denmark to have copper-engraved illustrations". The work is also known as "The Fencing Book of Christian IV", as the book was dedicated to and made for the great king, whose fencing instructor Fabris was. Salvator Fabris (1544-1618) was an Italian fencing master from Padua, who taught in many European cities, most notably Denmark, where became fencing master to King Christian IV. It was during his time in Denmark that he published his splendid work on fencing, which became a fencing bestseller all around Europe. The work was reprinted numerous times up until until 1713 and translated into several different languages. In 2005 the work was translated again into English. The splendid first printing was done by Henrik Waldkirch and is regarded as one of the very finest examples of baroque printing. "The type of book that this work represents was, at the time of its appearance, something quite new in this country, and if the book had not contained a specific reference to it, one would never imagine that it had been produced in this country as early as 1606." (Own translation from the Danish - in L. Nielsen: "Den Danske Bog" p. 101). "Fabris divides his work into two books and six parts. The first book treats throughly the question of broad principles and of the more 'academic' actions with the rapier alone, or accompanied with dagger or cloak; it discusses in a very exhaustive manner the relative value of the past and present methods. The second book is one wherein is demonstrated certain rules with which it will be possible to strike the enemy from the moment the sword is drawn, without halting or waiting any time, principles which has never been treated by any master or writer" (Thimm p. 97). The book was immensely influential and was plagiarized by many other fencing masters, just as Fabris' style was adopted by several official fencing institutions (e.g. the University of Jena).A second issue appeared in Padua in 1624.Brunet II:1155; Birkelund nr. 37; Thesaurus 456; Cockle: 754.

        Tabularum geographicarum contractum libri quinque

      Amsterdam: Cornelius Nicolai, 1606. THIRD EDITION. Allegorical engraved title and 174 engraved maps. Contemporary vellum, ties present; old light dampstain extending from upper margin affecting a number of leaves. Significant early annotations to numerous leaves and rear endpapers. Bertius' Tabularum geographicarum was the finest and most important edition of the Caert thresoor, Barent Langenes' miniature atlas first published in 1598. Langenes (fl. 1598-1610) was a publisher in Middelburg and most likely the author of the text of the well-known and popular work that set the standard for the miniature atlas. Bertius' revised Latin text and Ptolemaic arrangement first appeared in 1600 and remained influential throughout the following century. All of the maps are up to date, and of particular interest is the fact that the text is geared toward the specific maps as opposed to reciting general information. The fifth part of the present edition features 15 maps devoted to America, including Mexico, Cuba and Jamaica, the Yucatan, Hispaniola, Peru and Brazil, among others. Bertius (1565-1629) grew up in Beveren in Flanders and as a young man traveled widely in Europe. He moved to Amsterdam as a refugee from religious persecution, and after completing his education became a professor of mathematics and librarian at Leyden University. In 1618 he moved to Paris and became official cosmographer to Louis XIII. He was related by marriage to Jodocus Hondius and Pieter van den Keere. In addition to his miniature atlas, he is known for his editions of Ptlemy's Geographia (based on Mercator's edition of 1578).

Only copy located of the only known Rotterdam edition of a very popular household medical guide for the use of the common folk, by Heyman Jacobs (active 1596-1645), identified on the title-page only as "H.I.", a Catholic in Haarlem who wrote two books on folk medicine, as well as folk and school books on other subjects.

The book continues with a "Medicinael remedi boecxken", with medicinal recipes intended for the poor, arranged by the various ailments, and ends with "Een schone visitatie, by den siecken ende krancke menschen" a guide for visiting and comforting the sick and dying. More than twenty pre-1700 editions survive, but most copies were worn out with use so that all editions are now rare and some are lost.In very good condition, with only a 2 cm tear in the text of 1 leaf and a couple small marginal chips, not approaching the text, and only slightly trimmed, preserving point holes in most quires.

        La Madonna della scodella

      1606 - Acquaforte, 1606, firmata e datata in lastra in alto a destra. Esemplare nel terzo stato di tre, con l’indirizzo dell’editore Van Aelst. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, sottili margini oltre l’impronta del rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Il disegno preparatorio all’opera, in passato nella collezione Mariette ed oggi al Louvre, evidenzia la naturale semplicità della composizione, che distingue il lavoro da quelli del passato. La Madonna della scodella, è la prima incisione dell’artista realizzata nel XVII secolo, e si discosta stilisticamente dal precedente Sileno ebbro del 1600. Caratterizzata da un notevole contrasto di luce e ombra, e dalla semplificazione, quasi geometrica, delle figure, riflette nell’ambito della grafica le tendenze che il Carracci applicava nella sua produzione pittorica. Ex collezione Städel Museum, Städelsches Kunstinstitut und Städtische Galerie, legs J. K. Brönner (Lugt 306). Etching, 1606, signed and dated in the plate in the top right. Example of the third state of three, with the address of the publisher Van Aelst. Excellent work, printed on contemporary laid paper without watermark, thin margins, in excellent condition. The preparatory drawing, in the past in the Mariette collection and now at the Louvre, highlights the natural simplicity of the composition, which distinguishes the work from those of the past. T The Madonna della Scodella, is the first etched work that Carracci made ??in the seventeenth century, and differs stylistically from the previous Drunken Silenus of the 1600. 0 Characterized by a remarkable contrast of light and shadow, and by simplification, almost geometric, shapes, reflected in field of graphic the trends that Annibale applied in his paintings. Ex collection Städel Museum, Städelsches Kunstinstitut und Städtische Galerie, legs J. K. Brönner (Lugt 306). De Grazia 20 III/III; Bartsch 9. Dimensioni 160 223mm [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Gerard de Jode (1509-1591) was a cartographer, engraver and publisher who lived and worked in Antwerp during the 16th century. He was born in Nijmegen and died in Antwerp. In 1547 he was admitted to the Guild of St. Luke, and began his work as a publisher/printseller. All of the engravings are stunning - it was a struggle for me to choose which ones to show on this listing. If you would like to see pictures of some of the other ones please message me and i can arrange this. The book is VERY GOOD + condition. Bound in modern boards and end papers. All is as it should be. All bound together and presented well. There is a tear to one of the engravings and also a small hole to another. Otherwise all engravings in very good condition. Overall : a VERY GOOD + copy with all engravings in place as they should be. A very rare item indeed. . Very Good. Hardcover. 1st Edition. 1606.

        Exquisita & magno aliquot mensium periculo lustrata et iam retecta Freti Magellanici facies

      Amsterdam 1606 - Importante mappa dello stretto di Magellano, antecedente alle scoperte di Le Maire. La carta è inclusa negli atlanti Mercator/Hondius a partire dal 1606; orientata con il Nord in basso, come mostra la bellissima bussola incisa al centro, la mappa identifica una vasta terra a Sud con il nome di "Tierra del Fuogo". I dettagli della costa derivano dalle informazioni raccolte da Bernardus Joannis Monasteriensis, che partecipò alla spedizione olandese nello stretto del 1599-1600. La spedizione è illustrata nella mappa che raffigura dei vascelli con bandiera olandese. Realizzata prima della scoperta di una rotta oltre la Terra del Fuoco, la mappa precede la scoperta di Cape Horn, datata 1616. Una delle più importanti ed antiche carte sulle scoperte geografiche. Incisione in rame, coloritura antica con ritocchi, lievi pieghe di carta centrali, testo francese al verso, per il resto in buono stato di conservazione. Important early map of the Straits of Magellan, predating the discovery of the Straits of Le Maire. A classic early Mercator map, featuring 3 large strapwork cartouches, one of which includes a profile view of the entrance to the Strait. The ornate compass rose point downward, indicating North at the bottom of the map. Seven sailing ships and both land and sea creatures are illustrated. The Southern Land is identified as Tierra Del Fuogo. In the Strait, there are approximately 15 place names identified, along with 30-40 soundings. Rhumb lines emanate from the compass rose. The coast line of Tierra del Fuego quickly turns from charted lands to conjecture, trailing off to become a part of the unknown southern continent. The geographic details for the map of the Straits of Magellan came from Bernardus Joannis Monasteriensis who had participated in the first Dutch expedition to sail through the Straits in 1599-1600. That expedition, which was led by the Duke Sebaldi de Waerdt, is portrayed on the map in the form of six sailing ships flying the Dutch Flag in what is labeled the "Mar del Zur." The map was printed from a copper plate engraved by Lambert Cornelisz in 1606. Made prior to the confirmation of a route around Tierra del Fuego, the Strait was, at that time, the only passage between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Controlled by the Dutch, exorbitant fees were charged for the passage. One of the most fascinating and decorative of all regional American maps, illustrating an important period in the history of the discovery of the Americas and water routes from the Atlantic to the Pacific, predating the discovery of Cape Horn in 1616. Copperplate, with contemporary colour and some light paper folds in the centre, otherwise in excellent condition. French text on the verso. Dimensioni 470 350mm

Contemporary vellum, contemporary manuscript title on spine. A set of the complete 'Icones Animalium', which comprises the complete series of woodcuts from Gesner's 'Historia Animalium' (1551-1558), along with some that appear in this edition for the first time. This was the greatest zoological encyclopaedia of the sixteenth century and the greatest pictorial assembly of zoological illustration of its time. The illustrations are the first original zoological illustrations and the first naturalistic representations of animals to be published. As such they herald the birth of zoological book illustration. They are the archetypes of much subsequent animal illustrations, even into the eighteenth century. The woodcuts were cut after paintings by Lukas Schan, some of which survive as part of the Felix Patter collection in the Basle University Library. /The 'Icones' utilizes the entire assembly of woodcuts, but largely eliminates the text, apart from the nomenclature./I. The 'Historia animalium de quadrupedium viviparis' dealing with mammals, was the first part of the zoological encyclopaedia on mammals. The present 'Icones Animalium Quadrupedum et Oviparum' incorporates the separately published 'Historia animalium liber II. De quadrupedibus oviparis' and is the 3rd edition. /II. The 'Historia animalium de avium' woodcuts are the second important suite of ornithological iconography, being roughly contemporary with those of Belon published the same year. They are the precursors of many of Aldrovandi's illustrations, many of which were copied from Gesner. The present 'Icones Avium' is the 3rd edition./III. The 'Historia animalium de piscium & aquatilium' was Gesner's history of fish and aquatic animals. The woodcuts form the fourth great series of ichthyological illustrations, after Belon (1551), Rondelet (1554) and Salviani (1554), but are also the first general series of marine illustrations (including conchology), not confined to fish. The present 'Nomenclator Aquatilium Animantium. Icones animalium aquatilium' is the 1st edition./IV. The 'Historiae Animalium Liber II. Qui est de Quadrupedibus Oviparis' is not part of the 'Icones' but the second volume of his 'Historia Animalium' on amphibia and the 3rd edition. It is incorporated in 'Icones Animalium Quadrupedum et Oviparum' see no. I./'The title pages ... bear subtitles in Italian, French and German, probably because they were aimed at a larger market and at people who could no longer read Latin. These are the only title pages of Gesner's original works with text in vernacular languages. The illustrations themselves also carry captions in all four languages' (Wellisch, Conrad Gessner.

        Italiae, Sardiniae, Corsicae et confinium Regionum nova Tabula effigies paecipuarum Urbium et habituum inibi simul complectens

      Amsterdam 1606 - - Prima carte à figures della penisola - Incisione in rame, acquaforte e bulino, 1606, firmata e datata in lastra in basso a destra. Esemplare nel rarissimo primo stato di quattro, con la firma Guilelmus Iannsonius, edito nel 1606. Magnifica prova, ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata alla linea marginale e con margini aggiunti, nel complesso in ottimo stato di conservazione. Delicata coloritura coeva. I primi esempi delle così denominate "carte con figure", nascono nell’Olanda Meridionale del tardo ‘500. Una delle prime rappresentazioni di carta geografica decorata è il celebre Viaggio di Abramo di Ortelius, pubblicata nel Parergon del 1586. Per questa carta Ortelius si avvalse della collaborazione del pittore Maarten de Vos, che realizzò le scene per il bordo decorato. Jodocus Hondius, nel 1590, produce 3 piccole mappe di Inghilterra, Francia e Paesi Bassi con dei bordi decorati, seguito da Pieter van den Keere (Kaerius) che nel 1596 realizza una mappa decorata dell’Olanda. Ma lo sviluppo vero e proprio alle mappe con le decorazioni lo diedero la carta murale in 15 fogli dell’Europa di Jodocus Hondius (1595) e la carta del Mondo in 20 fogli di Willem J. Blaeu del 1605. Negli anni seguenti, il Blaeu realizzò diverse carte decorate di formato in-folio, a partire proprio dalla carta dell’Italia del 1606. Dal punto di vista cartografico, la mappa è interamente basata sulla carta di Mercator del 1589, che venne poi inserita anche negli atlanti Mercator & Hondius editi a partire dal 1606, in Amsterdam da Jodocus Hondius. La carta si presenta decorata su tre bordi. Il lato superiore è composto quasi interamente da un lungo panorama di Roma, al quale sono accostati una pianta di Venezia ed una di Genova. Negli angoli inferiori, si trovano le piante di Napoli e Firenze, mentre ai lati alcune scene di costume raffiguranti nobildonne e nobiluomini dei principali siti della penisola. La fonte del panorama di Roma è sicuramente la grande veduta panoramica della città disegnata da Hedrick van Cliven ed edita ad Amsterdam da Hendrick Hondius (1599-1605). Le altre piante delle città sono chiaramente riduzioni delle tavole del Civitates Orbis Terrarum di Braun & Hogenberg. La carta ebbe una seconda stesura, ad opera di Blaeu, nel 1620 circa, e due ristampe a cura di Cornelis e Danker Dankerts (1640 e 1661). Tutte le edizioni di questa carta sono assolutamente rarissime. Schilder elenca solo 10 esemplari conosciuti di questa carta, nessuno presente nelle raccolte italiane. Borri cita il primo stato della mappa, al quale assegna la rarità di 95/100, descrivendola come "pregiata e decorativa carta in rigoroso stile mercatoriano, rarissima, mai ristampata, è la prima del genere delle cartes à figures", ignorando quindi l’esistenza degli stati successivi. - FIRTS EDITION OF THE FIRST CARTE A FIGURE OF ITALY - Etching and engraving, 1606, signed and dated in the plate lower right. Example of the very rare first state of four, with the signing Guilelmus Iannsonius, published in 1606. Magnificent proof, rich in shades, printed on contemporary laid paper, trimmed to the marginal line and with added margins, overall in very good condition. Contemporary delicate coloring. The first examples of the so-called " carte à figures ", born in Holland in the late '500. One of the first representations of a decorated map is the famous Travel of Abraham by Ortelius, published in the Parergon of 1586. For this map Ortelius had the collaboration of the painter Maarten de Vos, who designed the sets for the decorated border. Jodocus Hondius in 1590, produces 3 small maps of England, France and the Netherlands with decorated edges, followed by Pieter van den Keere (Kaerius), which in 1596 created a map of Holland decorated. But the real development to the maps with the decor gave it a wall map of Europe in 15 sheets of Jodocus Hondius (1595) and the map of the World in 20 sheets of Willem J. Blaeu in 1605. In the following years, Blaeu created sev [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

      - Map. Engraving with hand coloring. Image measures 13.75 x 19.25". Sheet measures 17.5 x 21.5" This map of central Africa includes the Red Sea and the horn of Africa, extending south to the present-day Democratic Republic of the Congo. An inset in the upper right shows the Christian regions of Africa on the coast of the Atlantic. Published circa 1606, the map has a decorative scheme that includes pictorial mountains and engraved textures that mimic ocean waves. Hand coloring used to separate regions extends to the map's border, which is a pale pink. The map is in very good condition with no chips ot tears and ample margins. Some discoloration at center fold, primarily in the top margin. Gerard Mercator (1512-1594) was an accomplished mathematician, cartographer, globe maker and engraver but is best known for the Mercator Projection. Incorporating the newly accepted fact that the world is round, Mercator was able to render longitude lines consistently straight on a chart. Although this requires some distortion, it was of great use for navigators, and is historically important, as it is still the most commonly used projection today.

      Hanoviae : Marnius & Aubrius, 1606. - 1606 CHIVARLY & War Jean Froissart Chronicles Philippe Commines Medieval France Duo Gallicarum & HUNDRED YEARS’ WAR Jean Froissart (c. 1337 – c. 1405) was a medieval French author, who wrote several works, including Chronicles and Meliador, a long Arthurian romance, and a large body of poetry, both short lyrical forms, as well as longer narrative poems. For centuries, Froissart’s Chronicles have been recognised as the chief expression of the chivalric revival of the 14th century Kingdom of England and France. His history is also an important source for the first half of the Hundred Years’ War. Philippe de Commines (1447 – 1511) was a writer and diplomat in the courts of Burgundy and France. He has been called “the first truly modern writer” (Charles Augustin Sainte-Beuve) and “the first critical and philosophical historian since classical times” (Oxford Companion to English Literature). Neither a chronicler nor a historian in the usual sense of the word, his analyses of the contemporary political scene are what made him virtually unique in his own time.

        Prattica manuale dell'Artiglieria, dove si tratta dell'eccellenza e origine dell'Arte Militare, e delle Machine usate da gli antichi.

      Milano, Gir. Bordoni e P. Locarni 1606, (Legato con:) Ordnung und Freyheiten, das fu?rstliche newe Collegium zu Tübingen betreffend; welche . Johann Friderich, Hertzog zu Wu?rttemberg und Teckh . Tübingen, in der Cellischen Truckerey, 1609, - in-4, pp. (20), 387; 42, legatura antica cartone rustico, tagli rossi. Impresa tipografica sul titolo, testatine, iniziale e fregi silografici. Dedica degli stampatori al nobile Federico Landi. E' corredato di 16 tavole f.t. in silografia e numerose figure n.t. Prima traduzione italiana, basata sull'edizione in spagnolo del 1592. In effetti, l'opera era già stata pubblicata in italiano a Venezia nel 1586, ma venne poi completamente rimaneggiata dall'autore: "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" (Cockle). Il Colliado tratta estesamente dell'invenzione della polvere da sparo, della fabbricazione delle mine, dei fuochi artificiali e di alcune tecniche di offesa. L'autore, il capitano spagnolo Luys Collado, offre quindi un panorama completo dell'artiglieria nel XVI secolo ponendosi, grazie anche alle belle illustrazioni, tra gli scrittori più interessanti per la storia delle scienze militari. Buon esemplare (lievi aloni nel margine superiore, tracce di polvere al titolo; abile restauro a piccolo strappo n.t. a p. 305; estesi arrossamenti della carta nelle 42 pagine del trattato tedesco aggiunto in fine). Cockle 668, nota. D'Ayala p. 142. Palau III 57575, nota. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        World map - Willem Bleau, 1606 or later.

      ?Nova Totius Terrarum Orbis Geographica Ac Hydrographica Tabula? copper engraving first published in 1606 by Willem Bleau in Amsterdam. Coloured by a later hand. Size: 55 x 41 cm.Nice example of Blaeu?s classic world map in the so-called Mercator projection. This is one of the most famous landmarks of 17th-century cartography. Engraved and signed by Joshua van den Ende, reduced from Blaeu?s wall map of 1605, it first appeared as a separate publication in 1606. In 1630 it was incorporated into Willem Blaeu?s ?Atlantis Appendix? and then into the ?Atlas Novus? in all subsequent editions until 1658. Its influence was enormous, and it was closely copied by some of the greatest Dutch cartographers, such as Pieter Van der Keere and Johannes Janssonius. Others, such as the house of Hondius, were forced to produce their own highly decorative maps to compete.Geographically, the map was a reduction of Blaeu's large map of the world published in 1605. The charming cartouche in the interior of North America mentions its discovery by Columbus in 1492 and being named after Amerigo Vespucci in 1499. There is some confusion in the depiction of the landmass of the East coast of the United States, probably as a result of Indian reports of large bodies of water inland, almost certainly the Great Lakes. California is correctly shown as a peninsula. The Le Maire straits, separating Tierra del Fuego from South America, copied from an earlier map by Hondius, are clearly shown. In the north, a note beside ?Nova Zembla? in the Arctic declares that it was reached by Willem Barents in 1596. In the Far East Korea is shown as an island and northern Australia is shown without any place names.Decoratively the most striking features of this map are the magnificent and innovative panelled borders. The upper border shows allegorical figures of the sun and moon and the five known planets; Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. Along the bottom border are depictions of the seven wonders of the ancient world; the hanging Gardens of Babylon, the Colossus at Rhodes, the Pyramids at Giza, the Mausoleum of Hallicarnassus, the Temple of Artemis at Ephesus, the Statue of Zeus at Olympia and the Lighthouse at Alexandria. Running down the left hand side of the map are representations of the four elements (Fire, Air, Water and Earth) and on the right, the Four Seasons.Reference : Rodney Shirley ?The Mapping of the World?, no. 255Price: ?11.500,- (incl. frame).
