        Den kleynen herbarius ofte kruyt boecxken, .Rotterdam, Pieter van Waesberge, 1637. Small 8vo. With woodcut device on the title-page. 20th-century boards covered with marbled paper.

      - Not found recorded; cf. BMN I, p. 502; Krivatsy 6188; KVK & WorldCat (similar 1606, 1614, & 1638 eds.). 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. After the preliminaries, the medical herbal proper gives accounts of the medicinal properties of nuts, berries, herbs, grains, fruits, roots, flowers and other plants, foods or substances, with instructions for their preparation and use to cure or prevent illnesses. The account of tobacco, not yet cultivated in the Netherlands when Jacobs wrote, notes that it is imported from the West Indies and can be smoked in a pipe or steeped in wine overnight for drinking. 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. Unrecorded Rotterdam edition of a popular guide to herbal medicine.

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. A Bio-Biography p 69)./An attractively bound set. First few leaves with marginal brown spot. The section on fishes very clean, the others with some occasional browning.//Provenance: First title page with old owner's name ?Gottfried Eichorn and on inside frontcover engraved armorial bookplate with initials C.W.G.V.N., bookplate of Christoph Wentzel, Graf von Nostitz (1648-1712).//Wellisch A 29.3; A 30,3; A 31.1; 24.3. and PMM 77 for the 'Historia animalium' (1551-1558).

        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]

        Abissino Rum Sive Pretiosi Ioannis Imperiu

      - 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.

        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).

        Historie of Twelve Caesars, Emperours of Rome

      1606. First Edition . SUETONIUS. The Historie of Twelve Caesars, Emperors of Rome: Written in Latine by C. Suetonius Tranquillus, and newly translated into English by Philemon Holland. London: Matthew Lownes, 1606. Small folio in sixes (measures 8 by 11 inches), contemporary full limp vellum, ink manuscript title to spine, yapp edges, vellum ties. Housed in a custom clamshell box. $16,000.First edition in English of Suetonius’ dramatic biographies of the Caesars, the important Holland translation. An excellent copy in contemporary vellum binding.""De Vita Caesarum, from Julius Caesar to Domitian, is largely responsible for that vivid picture of Roman society and its leaders, morally and politically decadent, that dominated historical thought until modified in modern times by the discovery of nonliterary evidence. The biographies are organized by topics: the emperor's family background, career before accession, public actions, private life, appearance, personality and death… The earlier lives down to Nero, especially those of Julius Caesar and Octavius Caesar, are much the fullest, perhaps because as an antiquarian Suetonius was drawn to the documentary byways of an earlier age… [it is] exciting reading"" (Britannica). ""Classical 'lives' became prototypes for later writings about individuals. A rival for Plutarch was Suetonius (flourished A.D. 112-121), whose Lives of the Caesars overflowed with anecdotes of lust, violence, and idiosyncrasy"" (Boorstin, The Creators, 586). Holland was considered the ""translator general in his age… while the plague raged at Coventry [where Holland lived] in 1605-06, Holland translated Suetonius' Historie of Twelve Caesars"" (DNB). The work was Robert Graves' primary inspiration for his novel I, Claudius (1934). With woodcut initials and elaborate woodcut chapter headpieces incorporating medallion portraits. Without first and final blanks. STC 23423, with Holland's name on the letterpress title page. Brueggemann, 703. Moss II:636. Harris, 145. Palmer, 100.

        Emblemata amatoria: iam demum emendata. [Amsterdam, ca. 1610]. Oblong 4to. With engraved title-page and 24 circular engraved emblems by Jacob de Gheyn, with captions in Latin, French or Italian, mottos in Latin in the borders of the emblems, and captions and 2 distichs in Latin on the facing pages. 18th-century vellum.

      - Landwehr, Emblem Books Low Countries 215 (3 copies); Praz, p. 96 (note); STCN (4 copies). Very rare edition using the engraved title-page and plates of Daniel Heinsius's first original emblem book, but with a different Latin text, the only edition with the present distichs in Latin by the otherwise unknown I.A. Timmermans, possibly a humorous pseudonym of Heinsius, using a Dutch pseudonym for this Latin edition instead of the Latin pseudonym Theocritus à Ganda, which he used in 1606 for the Dutch Spiegel vande . vrouwen.Although the title-page and the engraved emblems are the same as Heinsius's earlier Emblemata amatoria, the accompanying poetry is quite different. The first poem is signed with the initials I.A.T. and emblem 24 with the full name I.A. Timmermans. Also interesting is that three of the emblems bear the name of Hugo Grotius, but his actual contribution is unknown.Water stains in lower margin (a few leaves restored), one quire misbound, some occasional thumbing and first three leaves slightly soiled.

      Graz: Georg Widmanstetter 1606 - 4° (16 x 20.5 cm): [11] (Title page printed in red and black), 158, [41], contemporary velum with gilt blind-stamped tooling (paper slightly age-toned with tiny tears and folds, hand written-notes and ex-libris on fly leaves and title page, binding slightly dusty with small holes and cracking to the spine). This work is an extremely important and eminently readable primary source on the activities of the Counterreformation in Inner Austria during the turn of the 16th to 17th Centuries. It consists of the entertaining response of the Roman Catholic provost Jakob Rosolenz (c. 1570-1629) to a work written by David Rungius, Professor of Thelogy in Wittenberg, entitled Bericht und Erinnerung von der Tyrannischen Bäpstischen Verfolgung des heil. Evangelii in Steyermark, Kärnten und Krain (1601). While Rungius’ book was a dry, scholarly and theocratic attack on the Counterreformation, Rosolenz’s reprise is a remarkably unacademic, honest and entertaining account written by a frontline participant in many of the dramatic events of Archduke Ferdinand III’s campaign against Protestantism in Inner Austria. For over four centuries, Rosolenz’s book has remained one of the most authoritative primary sources on the Counterreformation in the region, and perhaps the most engaging and enjoyable to read. Until the late 1590s, a very uneasy environment prevailed in Inner Austria, whereupon the Roman Catholic Archdukes of the Habsburg family ruled over a largely Protestant populous, dominated by a mainly Protestant noble class. Continually threatened by the real possibility of an Ottoman invasion, the Habsburgs needed the financial support and cooperation of the Protestant nobles and, in return, had to begrudgingly tolerate Protestantism. This all ended when the zealously Catholic Archduke Ferdinand III (1578-1637) reached the age of majority in 1595. Educated under the most severe Jesuit regime in Ingolstadt, Ferdinand was hell-bent on destroying Protestantism in his domains, regardless of the costs or consequences. Martin Brenner, the Prince-Bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Graz-Seckau, brought a rather extreme, yet ingenious, design to the attention of the archduke. He proposed that Ferdinand should assemble an army that would travel throughout Inner Austria in order to systematically destroy Protestant churches, burn books and remove the preachers in every city, town and village along on the way. Their objective would be to annihilate any and every sign of evangelic culture, so that the people would convert back to Catholicism, and would never look back.Rare editio princeps of a highly important primary source on the Counterreformation in Styria. .

        De Jesu Christi servatoris nostri vera anno, consideration novissimae sententiae Laurentii Suslygae Poloni... [SYLVA CHRONOLOGICA]

      35-[3] pages et [1] feuillet Francofurti, In officina Typographica Wolgangi Ricteri, 1606, , 35-[3] pages et [1] feuillet blanc, cartonnage postérieur, muet, Quatrième et dernière partie du De Stella nova sur la question de l'année de naissance du Christ, souvent citée par son titre courant "Sylva chronologica". Ici, Kepler réagit à la lecture d'un écrit de l'historien jésuite Laurentius Suslyga, Velificatio seu Theoremata de anno ortus et mortis domini, paru en 1605 ; l'auteur y postule que le calcul de notre ère commune est en retard de 4 ans. Cette publication coïncide avec l'apparition de la Nova Stella observée d'octobre 1604 à octobre 1605, à la faveur d'une conjonction Jupiter-Saturne, et que Kepler associe à l'étoile des Rois-Mages rapportée dans l'Évangile de Matthieu. L'astronome reprend ainsi les arguments historiques de Suslyga et établit, par des calculs astronomiques, une nouvelle date pour la naissance du Christ : -5 avant notre ère. Le De Stella nova a paru à l'automne 1606 : seuls 600 exemplaires ont été imprimés. Les exemplaires complets sont d'une insigne rareté et ses parties isolées le sont également. Une mouillure marginale fine et une auréole pâle en pied des feuillets. Biblioteca Kepleriana n° 27. Lalande 145.

Mouillure sur le dernier texte, autrement en bon état général. Très rare réunion des cinq textes en édition originale de la controverse développée au fil des ans entre les Maîtres barbiers-chirurgiens Jacques de Marque et Jean Lanay (ou Launay) sur la nature de la moelle des os. Maître Barbier Chirurgien à Paris, Jacques de Marque (1569-1622), gascon d'origine, considère que la moelle est une sorte d'excrément des os alors que Lanay la considère comme une nourriture. Philippe Portal dans son "Histoire de l'anatomie et de la chirurgie" publié en 1770 fait l'éloge du "raisonnemenr & de l'expérience" dont Marque se sert pour prouver sa théorie. Mais selon Dezeimeris III, 527, Marque s'est surtout distingué par un traité des bandages "qui fut longtemps le meilleur qu'on possédât".

        Le citadin de Geneve ou Response au cavalier de Savoye.

      Paris, Se vendent à Paris : chez Pierre Le Bret demeurant rue S. Jean Latran à l'enseigne de la Grosse Escritoire, 1606.Petit in-8 de [22]-383 pages, demi-basane brune à coins, dos à nerfs orné de filets dorés, pièce de titre brune (reliure XVIIIe), tranche rouge, manque le dernier feuillet blanc. Page de titre empoussierrée, parfois un peu court de marge. Ex-libris et noms de posseurs en page de garde. Première édition de cette oeuvre polémique, extrêmement importante pour la source de documentation qu'elle représente sur Genève et la Savoie au début du 17e siècle. Cet ouvrage répond à celui de Claude-Louis Buttet "Le Cavalier de Savoye ou Response au Soldat Français" paru pour la première fois en 1605. L'ouvrage contient "Les Annales du Traite de Paix fait et conclu à S. Jullien le 21 de Juillet 1603". Jean Sarasin, plusieurs fois syndic, membre du conseil des deux-cents et du Petit Conseil, habile diplomate, fut l'un des négociateurs, avec Jacques Lect, de la paix de Saint-Julien en 1603. C'est d'ailleurs avec Lect qu'ils publient ce pamphlet de propagande antisavoyarde. C'est dans cet ouvrage qu'il est fant mention pour la première fois de Catherine Cheynel, alias la"Mère Royaume": "Vers la porte de la Monnoye, il y en eust aussi une qui mit par terre son homme du haut des fenestres d'une maison, à grands coups de pierre, et avec un fonds de tonneau qu'elle luy jetta sur le cerveau." Point de soupe donc, mais du courage. Hardi! Cf. Dictionnaire biographique des Genevois et des Vaudois, II, p. 445 "pamphlet d'un style enflé et maniéré, dans lequel il prodigue l'injure, mais où il ne néglige aucun argument propre à défendre son pays et à mettre en évidence la bonté de sa cause"; et "Notice bibliographique sur le Cavalier de Savoie, Le Citadin de Genève et le fléau de l'aristocratie genevoise", in Mémoires et Documents de la Société d'Histoire et d'Archéologie de Genève, XIX, pp. 318 à 343.
