Mercator, Gerard and Jodocus Hondius
Amsterdam: Mercator, 1606. AN IMPORTANT AND RARE EARLY MAP OF VIRGINIA, FROM THE GOLDEN AGE OF DUTCH MAPMAKING Copperplate engraving with original hand-color Impression size: 18 1/2" x 23"; frame size: 30" x 34 1/2" References: Philip P. Burden, The Mapping of North America (Rickmansworth: Raleigh Publications, 1996) Entry 151; Cornelis Koeman, Atlantes Neerlandici (Amsterdam: Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, 1967) vol. 2, p. 282 no. 141; William P. Cumming, The Southeast in Early Maps (Chapel Hill: The University of North Carolina Press, 1962) no. 26 & pp. 17-18; Johannes Keuning, "The History of an Atlas. Mercator-Hondius," in Imago Mundi (Stockholm, 1947) vol. 4, p. 37 This exquisitely executed map was one of the most celebrated of the Mercator-Hondius projects. Gerard Mercator was the greatest cartographer of the sixteenth century, and his innovations, including the aptly named Mercator projection, continue to be employed in maps produced today, 400 years later. The geographer died in 1594, after publishing just a few parts of his atlas. Jacodus Hondius produced an edition of Mercator's atlas in 1606, and it was the first to include this map of Virginia and Florida. Virginiae Item et Floridae was, furthermore, the only original map of North America that Hondius included in his spectacular atlas. . Book.

ORTELIUS, Abraham (1527-1598)
London: John Norton, 1606. THE MAP THAT INSPIRED THE BRITISH EXPLORATION OF AMERICA Hand-colored copper-plate engraving: 171/4" x 22" References: Philip D. Burden, The Mapping of North America: A List of Printed Maps 1511-1670 (Rickmansworth, 1996), 79-81. 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. Ortelius's 1606 map of the New World is the third of the plates Ortelius used to delineate the continent, the earlier ones appearing in 1570 and 1579 respectively. Ortelius again relied on Mercator's great world map of 1569, particularly for the place names in the heartland of North America, which originate from the explorations of Fray Marcos de Niza and of Francisco Vasquez de Coronado. In the first incarnation (or "state") of the map, included in editions of Ortelius's atlas from 1570 until the mid-1 … [Click Below for Full Description]

ORTELIUS, Abraham (1527-1598)
London: John Norton, 1606. Single sheet, float mounted and framed (21 4/8 x 27 2/8 inches). 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 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, "Ma … [Click Below for Full Description]

Stevens [Estienne], Charles and John Liebault [Liebaut].
1606. Richard Surflet (Trans.). London: Printed by Arnold Hatfield for John Norton and John Bill, 1606. Likely the second edition, as the first edition and no other is cited in Fussell as1600 ([29] ; various prefaces, addresses, summaries; 901; [26] tables). Quarto, 18cm x 23cm, in full leather (apparently rebacked at some early date, replaced endpapers), woodcuts illustrating, for example, stills and geometry of layouts. Surflet’s translation of L’Agriculture et Maison Rustique by Estienne and Liebaut (who, in turn, translated Estienne’s Latin), a ‘voluminous treatise’ similar in scope and intent to Barnabi 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), in short, an early country handbook and encyclopaedia which, if it could not bring science fully to bear on farming and country life, at least sought to bring reason as the Elizabethans understood it. An important foundation book on agriculture and health (also distilleries). Entirely presentable and quite a scarce book. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

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.

Rare third German edition of this zoologically very important work by the famous Swiss botanist, zoologist, physician and philologist, Konrad Gesner (1516 - 1565). This is the abridged German translation, carried out by Forer (Forrer) with the help of Johannes Herold, of the two first parts of Gesner's immense work, originally written in Latin, the "Historia Animalium". This edition is the first "Verbesserte" of the German editions. In all three German editions appeared, and this is the only one carrying the subtitle "Aussführliche Beschreibung und lebendige..." ("elaborate and vivid...") instead of "Kurze beschreybung..." ("short description"). The first of the German translations is from 1563 and the second from 1600. The first German translation appeared in the lifetime of Gesner, and he corresponded with the translator, the physician Forer, who, in spite of this, contributed with sections not found in Gesner's original work.All contemporary editions if this work are rare.Conrad Gesner is the man who replaces zoology as it was understood in the Middle Ages with what we mean with zoology today.
