      Stampato appresso Richardo Pittore (d. i. Middelburgh, Schilders), 1607.. Mit Druckermarke auf Titel. 4 Bll., 378 (recte 322) S., 15 Bll. Prgt. d. Zt. mit handschriftl. Rückentitel. Lowndes III, 728; Brunet, Suppl. I, 507: "Ce livre est fort rare ei fort recherche en Angleterre". - Die Lebensgeschichte der Lady Jane Grey (1536/37-1554) wurde von Michelangelo Florio im Jahr ihrer Hinrichtung verfasst, aber erst mit dieser vorliegenden Ausgabe 1607 publiziert. - Nach dem Tode Eduard VI. und den politischen Machtspielen des Lordprotektors Dudley, der die rechtmäßige Thronfolge der katholischen Maria Tudor zu verhindern suchte, wurde Jane Grey am 9. Juli 1553 in London zur Königin erklärt. Schon die Proklamation stand unter keinem guten Stern, ein sechzehnjähriger Junge, Gilbert Potter, rief das Maria die rechtmäßige Königin sei. Janes Anhänger griffen sofort hart durch, ließen ihn verhaften und in Cheapside an den Ohren an den Pranger nageln, bevor sie sie ihm abschnitten. Maria Tudor wurde von ihren Anhängern am nächsten Tag in Norfolk zur Königin ausgerufen, Jane Grey versuchte sofort die Machtfrage militärisch zu klären. Volkes Meinung stand eindeutig auf Seiten Maria Tudors, Janes Soldaten desertierten und Maria Tudor wurde schon am 20. Juli in London zur alleinigen Königin ausgerufen. Die ehemalige Queen Jane wurden umgehend im Tower of London festgesetzt, ihre Hinrichtung erfolgte am 12. 2. 1554. - Der Berichterstatter Florio (1515-1572), Sohn konvertierter Juden, war Franziskaner bevor er zum Protestantismus wechselte; aufgrund religöser Verfolgung flüchtete er von Italien über Paris 1550 nach England und wirkte dort als Pastor. Sein Sohn war der Renaissance-Humanist John Florio, der möglicherweise eng mit William Shakespeare befreundet war. - Mit dem Exlibris des bekannten Sammlers James Patrick Ronaldson Lyell (1871-1948; Gründers der "Lyell Lectures" an der Oxford University. - Es fehlen die Bindebänder. Einband etwas angestaubt, sonst recht gutes Exemplar!

        Les plees del corone, diuisees in plusors titles & common lieux. Per queux home pluis redement & plenairement trouera quelq[ue] chose que il quira, touchant les dits plees, composes per le tresreuerend iudge, Monsieur Guilliaulme Staundford Chiualer, dernierment corrigee Auecques vn table parfaicte des choses notables contenus in ycelle, nouelment reueu & corrigee, oue ascun nouel additions [with] An exposition of the Kings prerogatiue, collected out of the great Abridgement of Iustice Fitzherbert, and other old writers of the lawes of England, by the right worshipfull Sir William Stanford Knight, lately one of the iustices of the late Queenes Maiesties Court of Common Plees. [etc.]

      London: [Pleas:] Londini ex typographia Societatis Stationariorum. Anno Domini 1607. [Prerogative:] London printed for the Company of Stationers. 1607., 1607. Book. Very Good. Leather. Description: Two works in one volume. Sm. 4to (8 ×6 in): [12], 198; [1], 85 leaves. Early calf, rebacked, red title-label. · Register: 4º: ¶^8 2¶^4 A-Z^8 &^8 [sec.]^6; A-K^8 L^6. · Condition: Pages clean and bright. · Comments: Last edition. Stanford's 'Plees del coron' was the first legal text book in England to cite specific authorities for every proposition. Stanford relied heavily on the material heaped together under the heading 'Corone' in Fitzherbert's Abridgment. However, Stanford arranged his treatise under chapters and headings in a coherent text, quoting acts of parliament and passages from Glanvill and Bracton. The treatise was first printed by Richard Tottell in 1557, shortly before Stanford's death. It is written in Law French. The other treatise in this volume is Stanford's 'Exposicion of the Kinges Prerogative'. Although written in 1548 (according to the dated dedication to Nicholas Bacon, then attorney of the wards), it was not published until 1567. It is built on the readings of the 'Prerogative regis', which was by early repute mistakenly called a statute of parliament. It also drew heavily on Fitzherbert and Stanford expressed the hope that others would similar treat titles of the Abridgment in an orderly fashion. The treatise deals with the property rights of the crown. It is written in English. · Title continued: "Whereunto is annexed the proces to the same prerogative appertaining." · References: ODNB, J. H. Baker, "Stanford, Sir William (1509-1558)"; S&M 1:365(68); S&M 1:119(79); STC 23224; STC 23218..

        The Historie of Foure-Footed Beastes … [with:] The Historie of Serpents. Or, The second booke of living creatures

      London: printed by William Jaggard,, 1607 & 1608. 2 works bound in one volume, folio (324 × 217 mm). Late 19th-century polished calf by Lloyd, spine richly gilt in compartments, red morocco labels, sides ruled around in gilt with a French fillet, marbled endpapers, gilt edges. Bookplates of Lord Battersea (1893), Thereze Mary Hope, and William Binns Cowper. Illustrated with woodcuts in the text throughout. FFB with the Gorgon title-vignette as usual, with variant settings B2r catchword "gers" and B6r line 1: "Crowne" as per the Harvard copy, and without the extra leaf inserted in only a few copies after F4 headed "The Picture of the vulger Bugill Folio 57". Joints lightly rubbed and front joint just started at head, short closed tears at foot of FFB title, B3, and B4, and in fore-edge of 3Y3; a few minor marks or stains but generally clean and fresh, a very good copy. First editions of two of the most impressive large illustrated books of the Jacobean era. Topsell's fantastical natural history was an avowedly spiritual reading of the book of nature; his "declared purpose in collecting together pictures of animals, and stories about their ways, is to entertain, to inform, and above all to edify. He envisages The Historie of Foure-Footed Beastes as suitable sabbath reading-matter in the godly home (epistle dedicatory, final paragraph)" (ODNB). Topsell relied heavily for both text and illustration on the Historia animalium of the mid-16th-century Swiss protestant encyclopaedist Conrad Gesner, but he added material from the English writers John Caius (on dogs), Thomas Blundeville and Gervase Markham (on the horse), and Thomas Penny via Thomas Mouffet (on insects), as well as remarks of his own. The proposed books on birds and fishes to complete the series never appeared.

        RISPOSTA Del Sig. PAOLO ANAFESTO Aall'Avviso del Sig. Antonio Qvirino, Nobili Venetiani, Circa la Scommunica della Santitˆ di Papa Paolo V. contro il Duce, & Senato di Venetia

Possevino "represented the literary, scientific, and diplomatic type of Jesuit, performing important political missions, establishing schools of science and letters, and applying himself to diplomatic protocols and classical authors with equal assiduity." [Catholic Encyclopedia]. & & 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."

        ESPEIO DIVINO EN LENGUA MEXICANA

      Mexico: En la Emprenta de Diego Lopez Daualos, 1607.. [16],562,[2]pp. Four full-page woodcuts. Quarto. 19th-century half morocco, spine gilt. Titlepage mounted. Lacks the final two leaves (tables). Worming at inner margins, affecting several letters. Light scattered soiling and wear. Several leaves loosening. Good. The Sir Thomas Phillipps copy. The first and only edition. (A 1626 edition is listed in many bibliographies, but no copy is known.) The work does not fall within the usual categories of books written in Nahuatl: it is not a collection of sermons, a grammar, a dictionary, a breviary, a liturgy, a DOCTRINA, or a catechism. Rather it is a large work of moral and theological philosophy written entirely in Nahuatl. The work is designed for use by both the educated Indians and the clergy working among the natives: it is designed to be an "espejo...en que pueden verse los padres, y tomar documento para acertar a doctrinar bien a sus hijos" (a "mirror..in which fathers can see themselves and take stock in order to be sure to teach their children correctly"). The word "padres" here means both "Priests" and "fathers" and the word "hijos" both "charges" and "children." The text, in the form of a dialogue between father and son, is considered a masterpiece of Nahuatl. Author Juan de Mijangos was born in Antequera, the capital of Oaxaca. He joined the Augustinian order and taught philosophy and theology at the University of Mexico. A leading expert in the local native languages, Mijangos taught and preached to the Indians in their native tongue. In addition to the present work, he wrote PARTE DEL SERMONARIO, DOMINICAL Y SANCTORAL, EN LENGUA MEXICANA (Mexico, 1624). Two features worth noting about the book are that among its illustrations is one of the earliest portraits of St. Augustine produced in the New World, with the City of God in the background, and a note that the proofreader of the Nahuatl in the work was "Agustin de la Fuente, native of Santiago Tlatilulco," who was also the proofreader for Fr. Juan de Bautista. A native letrado who knew Latin, Spanish, and Nahuatl, Fuente was an influential presence at Davalos' printing establishment. Diego Lopez Davalos, printed in Mexico between 1601 and 1615. Indigenous people were directly involved in the production and printing of books in his shop - they served as scribes, printers, engravers, and bookbinders. An important work, rarely found complete. MEDINA (MEXICO) 238. ANDRADE 28. PUTTICK & SIMPSON, FISCHER SALE, 1138 (this copy). PALAU 168872. GARCIA ICAZBALCETA, LENGUAS 45. VINAZA 119. AYER COLLECTION N155. UGARTE 236. SABIN 48908.

        Regni Valentiae Typus

      Amsterdam. unbound. very good. Map. Engraving with hand coloring. Image measures 13 7/8" x 18.75". Beautiful vibrant map of western Spain, circa 1607. Published in "Gerardi Mercatoris Atlas sive Cosmographicae" (Mercator-Hondius Atlas). Latin text on verso. Minor dampstaining. 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. Originally created by Mercator, this plate was later added to by Hondius.

Very rare and beautiful series of engravings by an unidentified artist, accompanying the text of the Jesuit priest, Bartolomeo Ricci (1542-1613), whose Italian commentary on the Gospels appeared in the same year. An unusual book in its design. Each page of text, facing an engraved plate, is laid out in variety of columns from one to four, or even in combinations of columns, to accommodate parallel presentations of the Gospels, and in a variety of type sizes, to fit each text to a single page. Ricci's work of the following year (1608), TRIUMPHVS IESU CHRISTI CRUCIFIXI, was printed by Plantin-Moretus in Antwerp, with engravings by the great Adrian Collaert. The artist-engraver of this beautiful series seems not to be recorded.

Copy with multiple contemporary ownership titles. Work printed in two columns within typographical frames and title page printed in 2 colors. Edition dedicated and sponsored by the Duke of Aveiro, at the time acting as Prince and pretender to the throne of Portugal. [PT] Samodães II, pag. 304. 'Esta edição, bastante rara tambem, traz uma Epistola-Dedicatoria, diigida pelo impressor Jorge Rodrigues ao Duque D. Alvaro de Lencastre. Nessa Dedicatoria erradamente se declara ser esta a terceira edição da obra, citando-se tambam como primeira a publicada pelo autor a de de 1554, e como segunda a de Simão Lopes, e nada dizendo ácêrca da autentica primeira, impressa por Luis Rodrigues em 1545. Isto demonstra ser já a edição de 1545 quasi ou de todo desconhecida nesse tempo! Tal a sua extrema raridade.' Inocêncio III, 118: "Garcia de Resende, Moço da câmara d'El-Rei D. João II, de cujo serviço passou em 1490 para o do príncipe D. Afonso, voltando de novo por morte deste no ano seguinte a servir o pai no lugar de Moço da Escrivaninha, que parece equivalia a Secretario particular. Quase vinte anos depois do falecimento do referido monarca, foi pelo seu sucessor D. Manuel nomeado Secretario da Embaixada que mandou a Roma por Tristão da Cunha em 1514. Nasceu na cidade de Évora, e posto que se ignore a data certa do seu nascimento, parece que por boas conjecturas a devemos supor não muito arredada de 1470. Da mesma sorte é desconhecido o ano do óbito, havendo contudo motivo para julgar que assistiu ainda à segunda impressão que da sua crónica se fez em Évora em 1554. Livro das obras de Garcia de Ressende, que tracta da vida & grandissimas virtudes & bõdades: magnanimo esforço, excelentes costumes & manhas & muy craros feitos do christianissimo: muito alto & muito poderoso principe el Rey dom Joam ho segundo deste nome. cõ outras obras que adiante se seguë.

        Q. HORATI FLACCI EMBLEMATA

      Antverpiæ: Ex Officina Hieronymi Verdussen, 1607. FIRST EDITION. Hardcover. With Particularly Fine, Large Engraved EmblemsDrawn from Horace's Philosophical, Wry "Satires" 229 x 191 mm (9 x 7 1/2"). [3]-213, [1] pp., [1] leaf (blank). Missing A1 (half title), but with final blank. FIRST EDITION. Contemporary stiff vellum, titling neatly penned in an old hand at top of spine. WITH 103 VERY LARGE AND NOT INFREQUENTLY POWERFUL ENGRAVED PLATES (as called for) designed by Vaenius and engraved by C. Boël, Cornelius Galle, Pierre de Jode, and perhaps by Vaenius himself (all of the plates with text printed on the verso, a few of them cancels). Front free endpaper with extensive notes about Vaenius, written in Latin in a late 18th century hand. Landwehr, "Low Countries" 817; Praz, p. 523; De Vries 35; Hoe, "Emblems," p. 125. Front joint split (wider at very top and bottom), but the cover tightly attached on four vellum cords, title page with small cluster of tiny brown dots, a half dozen leaves with headline just cut into, final blank with most of another leaf adhering to its verso, isolated smudges and other trivial imperfections, but QUITE AN EXCELLENT COPY, the original binding solid, the volume clean inside and out, and with the striking engravings richly impressed. This is the uncommon first edition of an emblem book with fine illustrations that take their texts from the works--particularly the "Satires"--of the Roman poet Horace, the son of an ex-slave and the friend of the emperor Augustus. The moderate philosophy and wry humor of his poems, especially the "Satires," lend themselves to illustration by emblems that point out a moral or highlight a human foible. The engravings here sometimes incorporate allegorical figures, such as Death or Time, but also include genre scenes, their settings and costumes sometimes Roman, sometimes faintly Dutch from the time of the book's printing. The engravings are highly detailed and quite skillfully executed, usually including landscapes or architecture in the background. Each image illustrates Latin quotations appearing on the facing page, the topmost from Horace, the rest, supporting the sentiment, from other Roman authors. Otho Vaenius (or Otto van Veen, 1558-1629) of Leyden studied art in Italy and counted Rubens among his pupils. He painted portraits and religious scenes, as well as constructed triumphal arches and designed illustrations such as these, sometimes using them for works he himself composed. Our copy is from the state of the work with the final blank (Dd4, not called for by Landwehr), with pages 48 and 152 numbered correctly, and with no emblems pasted over. The book is not common: ABPC lists seven copies at auction during the last 35 years.

Period full vellum binding with title hand-inked to spine crown. Bound with Baglioni's APOLOGIA [1606], see TavBooks ID #33817.. Inked annotations throughout. Withal, a VG - VG+ copy.. Possevino "represented the literary, scientific, and diplomatic type of Jesuit, performing important political missions, establishing schools of science and letters, and applying himself to diplomatic protocols and classical authors with equal assiduity." [Catholic Encyclopedia]. 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].

An appealing copy. * Lambard, or Lambarde, a barrister and legal historian, was the keeper of records at the Rolls Chapel and the Tower of London. First published in 1581, Eirenarcha is esteemed for its comprehensive and systematic account of the organization of local government under the justices of the peace at the end of the sixteenth century. It was the standard authority for many years and often reprinted. Like many books of its kind, Eirenarcha offers fascinating insights into the society that produced it. This is evident in the detailed indictments for such offenses as murder via witchcraft, raping a child or maid (the age of distinction was ten), hearing a Catholic Mass, practicing usury and operating a bowling alley. First published in 1582, Duties of Constables is a companion work. Sweet & Maxwell, A Legal Bibliography of the British Commonwealth 1:229(43), 234 (9).

Vellum, rebacked in calf, raised bands lettered in gold. with blind stamped dec., to front and rear, lacks ties. Title in red and black, [8], 388, [12], 373, [31], 1 - 4, 243, [1]. ["Of Marcus Valerius Martialis, the most prolific, if not the most excellent of epigrammatists, not much is known, save that he was born in the ancient kingdom of Aragon in Spain in AD 43. He went to Rome and was one of the Tribunes under the empire of Titus and Domitian, who held the poet in high esteem. He was displeased with the government of Trajan, and offended by his neglect of literature he returned to Bibilis, his native town in his 56th year. He soon after married and continued to reside their until his death." From Scribners Magazine August 1874.] The more usual imprint for this book is Michel Sonnius not Claude Morell which is the scarcer one.However it was not uncommon in this period that publishers and printers shared the costs of printing and often unsold quires were bought or simply used by business partners. This will explain the different title page for the same edition; Claude Morel and Michel Sonnius also had their printing shops in the same road, facilitating in this way business exchanges. Lorenzo Ramírez de Prado (1583-1658) was a humanist lawyer, who belonged to a distinguished Spanish family. Fine

Traylen for; Christopher Henry Beaumont Pease, Lord Wardington (1924-2005), Library of Important Atlases and Geographies. AN EXCEPTIONALLY FINE LARGE-PAPER COPY, THE FIRST EDITION WITH COUNTY MAPS and the last edition to be published by Camden himself. "If Camden was not the first English historian (in the modern sense of the word), topographer and antiquarian, he was certainly the first to relate the three studies, and his "Britannia", primarily topographical, is the first book which shows... the need to evaluate sources" ("Printing and the Mind of Man" 10). The first survey of Great Britain county by county and the first study of Roman Britain as perceived in the landscape of 16th-century Britain. First published in Latin in 1586, the first edition in English in 1610. "If Camden was not the first English historian (in the modern sense of the word), topographer and antiquarian, he was certainly the first to relate the three studies, and his "Britannia", primarily topographical, is the first book which shows... the need to evaluate sources" ("Printing and the Mind of Man" 10). The first survey of Great Britain county by county and the first study of Roman Britain as perceived in the landscape of 16th-century Britain. At twenty Camden left Oxford with no degree "no known financial resources, patron, or position. For four years the record is silent on how this young man with no publications and no degree occupied himself. Unsubstantiated tradition has him travelling Britain, perhaps under the patronage of Gabriel Goodman, dean of Westminster, in search of antiquities and topographical and historical material that found its way into the 'Britannia'. The economic and social realities of his time were such as to make Camden in large measure the product of cultural institutions, and his disappearance during these years between known institutional affiliations is in itself interesting. Camden's appointment in 1575 as second master at Westminster School returns him to the public landscape. He spent twenty-two years at the school that was emerging as academically one of the most prestigious in the kingdom...not only was he an effective educator and administrator, but he also travelled, collected material for and wrote the 'Britannia', brought it through its first four enlarged editions, and compiled a Greek grammar... In 1576 he inherited his father's property in Staffordshire which provided him with additional financial security. As early as 1577 he came to the attention of the great geographer Abraham Ortelius, then travelling in England, who encouraged Camden in his national enterprise, and whose work provided him with a model for topographical and historical writing. Further encouraged and supported by Dean Gabriel Goodman and his nephew Godfrey Goodman, Camden travelled extensively in pursuit of topographical and antiquarian information: in 1578 through Suffolk and Norfolk, and in 1582 to Yorkshire and Lancashire. Working with a knowledge of the current continental methods and the example and friendship of English scholars such as Alexander Nowell, William Lambarde, his schoolmate Richard Carew, and others, he developed his own approach to empirical research into topographical and historical study through travel, archival scholarship, and the use of original documents, along with the deployment of linguistic and philological evidence and artefacts for interpreting historical and cultural events. "As his work advanced Camden's reputation spread, well before the eventual publication of the 'Britannia' in 1586. Scholars from across Europe, both protestant and Roman Catholic, included a meeting with Camden on their itinerary when they came to England. Geographers such as Gerardus Mercator, lawyers such as Alberico Gentili, scholars and poets such as the Hungarian Parmenius, and statesmen such as Barnabé Brisson, president of the parlement of Paris, sought Camden's company, advice, or views. His work for the 'Britannia', then, was conducted in the field, through study and collaboration, and through research into original sources, both printed and manuscript. "Much anticipated, the 'Britannia' made its début on 2 May 1586, Camden's thirty-fifth birthday; the squat octavo volume was dedicated to Lord Burghley. Of Camden's published work the 'Britannia' has had the greatest and most lasting impact. It received immediate recognition when it appeared, and its successive, enlarged editions of 1587, 1590, 1594, 1600 (dedicated to Queen Elizabeth) and 1607 (dedicated to King James) and its English translation of 1610 by Philemon Holland attest to its popularity... By 1607, the year of its last Latin edition in Camden's lifetime, published in folio and containing an index, maps by Saxton and Norden, and engravings of coins, monuments, and topographical sites, it had evolved into an impressive and editorially sophisticated work of scholarship. It continued to be edited and translated during the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, the major editions being those of Gibson in 1695 and 1722, and Richard Gough in 1786 and 1806" (Wyman H. Herendeen for DNB). Chubb XVIII; Skelton 5; STC 4508. Catalogued by Kate Hunter..

      Basel, Ludwig Königs, 1607. 4to. Sewn as issued in later blank wrappers. Engraved ornamental title showing 2 geometers with instruments, on verso large engraved coat of arms (Henry Prince of Wales). (8),65,(2) pp. With 20 large engravings in the text. Printed on good paper, fine and clean.. First edition, though a Latin translation appeared at the same time. Zubler was a prolific mathematician and instrument-maker in Zürich, and in this work he describes a triangulation instrument (depicted on a full-page engraving), invented by himself, and shows its use in different situations of practical surveying and military use in artistic settings. The triangulation instrument was able to provide measures for length, width, height and angles all at once, to be read on the scales on the baseline etc. The instrument has two arms and a baseline. By fixing the angle between the baseline and the pivoted arm, setting the sliding sight on the baseline arm to the scaled length of the baseline itself, and finally, from the second station, sighting across the two arms while moving the second sliding sight into alignment with the first sight and the target, the side of the triangle on the ground will be given with the position of the second sight, adjusted to the scale. The provision of a degree scale on a semicircular plate at the pivot permits other techniques involving angle measurements or setting the arms at right angles.Cockle: 947 (Latin ed.) - Poggendorff II:1420
