CAMDEN, William
London,: George Bishop, 1607. London,: George Bishop,, 1607.. et insularum adiacentium ex intima antiquitate chorographica descriptio. Quarto (310 by 210mm), engraved frontispiece, 57 engraved maps by William Kip and William Hole after John Norden, Christopher Saxton and George Owen, most double-page, all (including the frontispiece) with fine original hand-colour, 8 full-page engraved illustrations of coins, other woodcut illustrations, ornaments and initials, all hand-coloured, some minor waterstaining to a few leaves, a few maps, browned at edges, red morocco, gilt fillet border, with central gilt foliate device, spine in 15 compartments, gilt, remboitage. A fine example of the first edition of William Camden's Britannia to be published with a set of county maps. William Camden (1551-1623) was an English antiquarian, topographer, and historian. He began work on his Britannia in 1577, after receiving a great deal of encouragement from many of the leading cartographers of the day, most notably Abraham Ortelius. The work would take him nine years, with the first edition appearing 1586. The work, published originally in Latin, is a county-by-county description of the British Isles, detailing the countries landscape, geography, antiquarianism, and history. It was to prove hugely popular with six editions being published in the first 20 years. During his lifetime Camden continued to revise and expand the text with each new edition. He drew upon unpublished text by the likes of William Lambarde, and travelled extensively throughout Britain collecting first hand information, e … [Click Below for Full Description]

TASSO, Torquato.
Viterbo: Girolamo Discepolo, 1607. Duodecimo (158 x 96 mm), pp. [xi], [1] blank, 322, [1] errata. Contemporary gilt-panelled calf, neatly rebacked with original spine laid down, red morocco label, marbled endpapers, gilt edges. Armorial bookplate of Thomas Philip de Grey, 2nd Earl de Grey (1781–1859), from his library at Wrest Park. A very good copy. Engraved title vignette portrait of the author. First edition of the complete poem; the first two Giornata were published separately in Venice in 1600. The dedicatory letter of the editor, Angelo Ingegnari, is dated 1 September 1607 at Rome. Some copies apparently lack the preface and final errata leaf, both present in this copy. Tasso's posthumously published poem, a retelling in blank verse of the events of Genesis, is best known in English as a key source for Milton's Paradise Lost. For scope and grandeur Milton depended on the epic models of Homer, Virgil, and Tasso's Gerusalemme liberata, but it is evident that Milton also read attentively the Sette giornate and took from it the general idea of versifying biblical narrative. Raphael's story of the creation of the world (lines 243-547) in book VII of Paradise Lost has been called "The Italian element in Milton's verse" (see Praz, 325-6). One of the most notable features of Paradise Lost is Milton's choice of blank verse, following Tasso's use of it here, rather than the ottava rima of La Gerusalemme liberata. An early memorial inscription to a binder's blank at the front notes that this copy was formerly in the library of Charles Herbert (1644-1691), colonel of the Royal We … [Click Below for Full Description]

Edward Topsell
London: William Jaggard, 1607. Collated: Lacking pages A1-6, B1, B3-5, C2-3, D6, FF1-6, I5, M1, X2, 3H4, 3Y1-8. Title page in facsimile. Lacking the plate of Durer's Rhinoceros. Pages often misnumbered, as indicated above. A fascinating work, scarce in any form and containing many of the illustrations for which the work is famous. Edward Topsell was an English cleric and author. He is best remembered for this work and a secondary volume, The History of Serpents. Topsell's work covers both real and mythological animals, including a striking plate of the Manticore, a creature with the body of a lion and the head of a man. Topsell was not a naturalist himself, and his worked was derived from the authority of earlier works. In doing so, Topsell repeats various amusing and now obviously fantastic features of animals, including the misbelief that Apes are scared of snails, and that Elephants worship the sun and the moon. Likewise, Topsell includes accounts of mythological creatures, showing only some scepticism when it comes to the existence of the Hydra. With the bookplate of Humphry Primatt, a clergyman and advocate for animals. Primatt wrote on moral issues in natural philosophy, attacking unnecessary cruelty to animals including that inflicted through hunting and other sports. Primatt's argument, founded in the divine goodness of God, argued that as all animals were created by God, justice must extend to them as it does to humans. An interesting provenance for a work of this nature. Despite its defects, this is an attractive copy for any collector, with a unique provenance. C … [Click Below for Full Description]

Imaginibus in aes incisis, notisque illustrata Ex officina Hieronymi Verdussen, Antverpiae (Antwerp) 1607, in-4 (18 x 23 cm), 213 pp. (1), contemporary vellumThe sought-after first edition, the only edition entirely in Latin - unlike the later editions - and illustrated with 103 full-page emblems copper engraved by C. Boël and Gisbert van Veen. Portrait of Horace in a medallion to title. Leaf 48 mis-numbered 84. Several donorship inscriptions to half-title and title. A few images of nudity have been discretely erased.Contemporary vellum, ink title erased on spine, a small blue spot to upper cover. A little cockled. Several faint dampstains. Discreet marginal repairs to pages 107, 179 and 183.Otto van Veen's (1550-1629) first published work. Van Veen was a Mannerist painter, Flemish art theorist and Rubens' teacher. The work is made up of two series of plates intended to elucidate the moral meaning of theatrical symbols. Each plate has a maxim in capital letters, followed by a short poetical extract as well as an explanation in the guise of an extract from Horace or other Roman writers. An important work, in which images for the first time take precedence over the text, this emblem book shows Venius' talent for bringing together the Flemish pictorial tradition with Italian Mannerism. "Is it not he, among the unfairly forgotten masters of this age, who manages best to marry the individual note of Flemish realism with the ideal flower of Italian grace?"

TARENTINO, Secondo (fl. mid 16th cent.)
Giovanno Andrea Valvassori called Guadagnino. no copies in America 8vo (155x99 mm). 76 leaves. Signatures: A-I8 K4. Italic type. Printer's device on title page. With 5 half-page woodcut illustrations and 5 historiated initials at the beginning of each canto. Green morocco binding signed by Bauzonnet-Trautz, panels within triple gilt fillets, spine with five raised bands and gilt title, inside gilt dentelles, marbled endleaves, gilt edges (corners and joints slightly worn). Small stain in the outer margin of the first and last leaf. On the title page the ownership entry "Bibliotheca Sedanensis" (the library of the Protestant Academy of Sedan was founded in 1607 under the leadership of Prince Henri de la Tour d'Auvergne and was dispersed in 1642 after the French annexation of Sedan). A very good copy from the library of Guglielmo Libri (Cat. 1847, no. 1096: "édition originale et très rare, que Melzi n'a jamais pu voir"). EXTREMELY RARE FIRST EDITION (the work was reprinted by Guadagnino in 1562 and again by Domenico Imberti in 1619 and 1623). Little is known about the life and figure of Secondo Tarentino. The poem, composed in ottava rima, is dedicated to Francesco Colonna, who was archbishop of Taranto between 1544 and 1560. Tarentino was probably at the service of Colonna, whose family is celebrated in a poem printed on the title-page verso as well as throughout the work. The Bradamante gelosa, in its elaborated plot full of action and adventure, is a celebration of human folly which overturns traditional chivalric values. Beside the narration of the love of Bradamante, Orl … [Click Below for Full Description]

Item #33818 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.

Edward Topsell
London: William Jaggard, 1607. Collated: Lacking pages A1-6, B1, B3-5, C2-3, D6, FF1-6, I5, M1, X2, 3H4, 3Y1-8. Title page in facsimile. Lacking the plate of Durer's Rhinoceros. Pages often misnumbered, as indicated above. A fascinating work, scarce in any form and containing many of the illustrations for which the work is famous. Edward Topsell was an English cleric and author. He is best remembered for this work and a secondary volume, The History of Serpents. Topsell's work covers both real and mythological animals, including a striking plate of the Manticore, a creature with the body of a lion and the head of a man. Topsell was not a naturalist himself, and his worked was derived from the authority of earlier works. In doing so, Topsell repeats various amusing and now obviously fantastic features of animals, including the misbelief that Apes are scared of snails, and that Elephants worship the sun and the moon. Likewise, Topsell includes accounts of mythological creatures, showing only some scepticism when it comes to the existence of the Hydra. With the bookplate of Humphry Primatt, a clergyman and advocate for animals. Primatt wrote on moral issues in natural philosophy, attacking unnecessary cruelty to animals including that inflicted through hunting and other sports. Primatt's argument, founded in the divine goodness of God, argued that as all animals were created by God, justice must extend to them as it does to humans. An interesting provenance for a work of this nature. Despite its defects, this is an attractive copy for any collector, with a unique provenance. C … [Click Below for Full Description]

In Mexico in the Henrrico Martinez Firm, 1607. Lithograph; [10]. 84l plates pages; The author of this VERY RARE work was one of the first Spanish artists to reach New Spain and many of his paintings can be found in Mexican churches. This was reproduced in 1874 Photo-lithographic reprint made by Pedro José Rayón in Madrid (1874) at the expense of Mariano Zabálburu, in a very short run of 100 copies. This reproduction is itself very rare [Palau 78064]. He was also a noted philologist, gaining a reputation with this work on the Basque language. It is one of the earliest works devoted to the subject. Sabin never saw this book and Medina refers only to the copy in the British Library. 2 woodcut plates showing full-page arms and portrait, Basque language - History. A source of historians and linguists. An index that precedes the development of the work, the author begins by presenting the Basque language as the language that was used primitively in all of Spain. This work gathers a set of valuable documents for many reasons, among which we can highlight those related to the Basque language, which was still spoken at the time of Baltasar de Echave in a large part of Santander, in the north of Burgos and in points near the town of Jaca. Echave dedicates the twenty-second and last chapter to emphasize the interest that must be had in the conservation of the Basque language.

Marmoriertes Leder d. 18. Jh. mit reicher Rückenvergoldung Graesse VI, 398; Ebert 21172; Caillet III, 8135. Dritte Ausgabe dieser bedeutenden und schön ausgestatteten Sammlung antiker Orakelsprüche, durchgehend in griechisch-lateinischem Paralleltext und mit den Kupfern der ersten Ausgabe von 1599. Reich annotiert von Opsopeus (d.i. Johannes Kock aus Bretten) nach Ranconnet, Turnebus und Auratus. Die Sprüche sind in den meisten Fällen ihren vermeintlichen Autoren wie auch der angeblichen Epoche fälschlich zugeschrieben, hatten jedoch eine grosse Wirkung auf die Philosophie der frühen Neuzeit. - Die hübschen Kupferstiche zeigen Sibyllen meist mit einem Buch in dr Hand. Sie stammen wie der Kupfertitel von Karel van Mallery (1571-1635) aus Antwerpen. - Schönes Exemplar, wenig gebräung, kaum fleckig, die marmorierten Vorsätze mit älteren Etiketten einer schottischen Bibliothek. Etwas berieben, hinteres Gelenk nur äusserlich leicht angeplatzt, aber solide. Dekorativer Band. [13 Warenabbildungen bei antiquariat.de]

Antwerp: Ex officina Plantiniana, Apud Ioannem Moretumm, 1607. Octavo (172 x 108 mm). Contemporary vellum, manuscript title to spine, yapp edges. Ownership inscription of one Jo. McMurtrie of Edinburgh dated 1853 to front free endpaper, 17th-century ink annotation to verso of endpaper opposite title, and 19th-century annotations on pp. 59 ("Eur.Andr.320") and 131 ("vide Hamilton's Reid p. 263", referring to William Hamilton's edition of the works of Thomas Reid), some pencilled marks in margins. Vellum a little soiled, marginal paper flaws to leaf N4 (pp. 199-200), in all a very good copy. Woodcut printer's devices at start, end, and at divisional half-titles, woodcut initials. A remarkable association copy, from the library of the Scottish philosopher David Hume, of one of the most notable works of western philosophy, this being the first Bernartius edition, with Hume's bookplate (State A) to the front pastedown. Hume was an enthusiastic reader of classical literature and a self-proclaimed Ciceronian too. In his autobiographical essay, published posthumously in 1777, Hume reported that between the ages of eighteen and twenty-one he read "most of the celebrated Books in Latin, French, & English", admitting that he was "secretly devouring" Virgil and Cicero when he should have been reading law. The influence of Cicero in particular pervades Hume's work - his Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion are modelled on Cicero's De Natura Deorum, and the Essays on Happiness draw strongly on De Finibus - a fact which numerous commentators such as Peter S. Fosl, John Valdimir Price, an … [Click Below for Full Description]

MERCATOR (Rumold).
[Amsterdam, 1607-1612]. 287 x 523 mm. Belle et rare mappemonde à deux hémisphères, issue de l'édition latine de l'Atlas sive cosmographicæ mediutationis de fabrica mundi et fabricati figura. La mappemonde de Rumold Mercator, dont la première édition fut publiée dans la Géographie de Strabon éditée par Casaubon à Genève en 1587, est une version condensée en deux hémisphères de la plus célèbre mappemonde murale des temps modernes exécutée par son père Gerard Mercator. Elle se distingue par l'élégance de sa calligraphie et par sa bordure ornementale, ornée d'une sphère armillaire et d'une rose des vents. Les mers sont décorées d'un navire et de deux monstres marins. Gérard Mercator est l'un des plus célèbres géographes de son temps. C'est à lui que l'on doit la projection employée dans les cartes marines. C'est également lui qui le premier utilisa le mot "atlas", en référence à un roi astronome mythique de Libye qui aurait construit le premier globe céleste. Cette référence resta cependant confuse et l'iconographie n'a retenu que l'image du titan condamné à porter les cieux sur ses épaules. Texte latin au dos. Exemplaire finement aquarellé à l'époque. Rare exemplaire avec l'intérieur des terres également aquarellé à l'époque. Pliure centrale restaurée, marge gauche restaurée avec du papier ancien, petit manque à une lettre dans le titre.

ZONCA, Vittorio
appresso Pietro Bertell, 1607. FIRST EDITION. Folio. pp. [viii], 88 [iv] 89-115, [i]. *2, a2, A-K4. L6, M-O4, P2. Roman letter. Fine engraved architectural title with putti, arms of the dedicatee above, angelic figure in oval below and forty two full-page engraved plates of machines, woodcut initials, typographical headpieces and ornaments, "Buchan" in a contemporary hand on title. Occasional light marginal spotting, the odd marginal thumb mark. A very good, clean copy, with good dark impressions of the plates in contemporary English vellum over thin boards, green silk ties, a little dust soiled, upper edge of lower cover with small tear. Rare first edition of Vittorio Zonca's wonderful, inventive and most influential work, one of the classic books on machinery of the late Italian Renaissance, beautifully illustrated with forty two engraved plates depicting machines for use in paper making, printing, flour mills, silk spinning, and a speculative machine using 'perpetual motion', amongst many others. The dedication is by the printer Bertelli to Rainuccio Gambara. Little is known about Zonca (1568-1602) beyond this his major publication which describes him as 'Architect of the Commune of Padua'; it is evident from this work that he was practically involved with a wide range of disciplines, from hydraulics, to textiles, to printing. Zonca clearly takes his place along with Ramelli, Vrani, and Branca as one of the pre- eminent engineers of late C16 Italy, all of whom share a debt to Leonardo. The work is simply conceived with a detailed plate of each machine, a table of its par … [Click Below for Full Description]

ZUBLER, LEONHARD. - [INSTRUMENT FOR SURVEYING AND GUNNERY]
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.
