        A generall historie of the Netherlands

      London: A. Islip and G. Eld, 1609 With engraved title and 56 large text engravings by Christoffel von Sichem. Woodcut chapter initials, head- and tailpieces. Contemporary mottled calf, unobtrusive restorations to head and foot of spine; some intermittent light dampstaining to top and fore-edges affecting some text and a tiny part of engraved title, inking to preliminaries and some margins with contemporary marginalia. From the library of Charles Tyler Prouty, with his bookplate. First edition, second issue of this elaborate work on the Netherlands. After the first chapter dealing with general history, the author details the lives, loves and politics of the rulers and nobility in the Netherlands from the start of the fourteenth century through 1608. The wonderful engravings illustrate many of these individuals, including William II, 18th Earle of Holland and Zeeland; Mary of Austria, Queen Dowager of Hungary and sister to Emperor Charles V; Ferdinando Alvards of Toledo, Duke of Alva, Lieutenant Governor and Captain General of the Netherlands for Philip II of Spain; Queen Elizabeth; Charles II of Austria; and William V of Bavaria. Little is known of Grimeston (d. 1610), whose family served the English government in France. He was an English translator of numerous related works, including histories of France, Spain, the East and West Indies, and Turkey. George Chapman, Elizabethan poet and writer for the stage, was a close relative of Grimeston, who apparently used many of his histories as research and background for his theatrical works.

        Des maladies des femmes grosses et accouchées. Avec la bonne et veritable méthode de les bien aider en leurs accouchemens naturels, & les moyens de remedier à tous ceux qui sont contre-nature, & aux indspositions des enfans nouveau-nés.Paris: Chez Jean Henault, Jean d'Houry, Robert de Ninville, Jean Baptiste Coignard, 1668.

      First edition, the copy of Maurice Villaret, of the book which "established obstetrics as a science" (G&M). This was the outstanding textbook of the time, the first important textbook of obstetrics for nearly sixty years (since that of Jacques Guillemeau in 1609), and the first important obstetrical text to be published in five vernacular languages as well as Latin.<br/><br/> Grolier, <i>One Hundred Books Famous in Medicine</i> 33; Lilly, <i>Notable Medical Books</i> 85; Norman 1461; Garrison-Morton 6147. <br/><br/> "Perhaps the first obstetric text in the modern sense, Mauriceau's <i>Maladies des femmes grosses et accouchees</i> established obstetrics as a science and as a separate medical specialty. Through its various translations, it exercised a dominant influence on seventeenth-century obstetrical practice. <br/> "Following the introduction, which describes anatomic landmarks, the work is divided into three sections dealing with diseases and abnormalities from conception to the end of pregnancy, normal childbirth, and the care of the mother and newborn infant, including the choice of a suitable wet nurse. Among the important new ideas presented in Mauriceau's work were the delivery of women in bed rather than in the obstetric chair, treatment of the various gestational periods, and discussions of many difficult cases. He also presented an analysis of the mechanism of labor and maintained that during labor the uterus is the active agent while the fetus plays a passive role. He gave the earliest account of the prevention of congenital syphilis by antisyphilitic treatment during pregnancy. He was also the first to refer to tubal pregnancy, complications of prolapse of the umbilical cord, and epidemic puerperal fever. <br/> "Mauriceau practiced podalic version but condemned both cephalic version and cesarean section. He gave rules for the management of placenta previa and advanced the concept of primary repair of perineal lacerations. Mauriceau discredited the observation of Ambroise Pare and others that the pubic bones separated during childbirth.He also denied that the uterus contains two cavities and that the amniotic Ruid is an accumulation of menstrual blood or milk. He argued against the common misconceptions that a child born at seven months' gestation had a greater chance of survival than one born at eight months and that a woman can give birth to only two children at a time because of the presence of two breasts. In the third edition (1681) he first described management of the aftercoming head in breech delivery with the aid of an index finger in the infant's mouth, a technique now called the 'Mauriceau-Smellie-Viet' maneuver. <br/> "Mauriceau's book went through three more editions in his lifetime (1675, 1681, 1694) and was translated into English (1673), German (1680), Latin (1681; by the author), Dutch (1683), and Italian (1684). The English translation was prepared by Hugh Chamberlen the elder (b. 1630), of the famous Huguenot family that succeeded in maintaining a monopoly on the use of the obstetric forceps for nearly two centuries. (Grolier/Medicine).<br/><br/> <i>Provenance:</i> Book plate of the Dr. Maurice Villaret to front paste down. "Maurice Villaret (1877 - 1946) was a French neurologist born in Paris. In 1906 he received his medical doctorate from the University of Paris. In 1919 he became <i>médecin des hôpitaux</i> in Paris, and subsequently served as <i>médecin chef</i> at the Hôpital Necker. In 1927 he became a professor of hydrotherapy and climatology, and in 1939 was appointed clinical professor at the Hôpital Broussais. He is remembered for his studies and experiments involving precision localization of vascular lesions of the brain. In 1917 he described what was to become known as 'Villaret's syndrome'... With his mentor Augustin Nicolas Gilbert (1858-1927), Villaret performed extensive research involving the physiology of the portal venous system, and had particular interest in the causes of portal hypertension. He also undertook several pathological studies of cirrhosis." (Wikipedia).. 4to (240 x 175 mm), pp. [xxiv], 536, engraved title by Vallet after Paillet incorporating a portrait of the author. Woodcut headpieces and initials, and 30 engravings in the text (some full-page). Contemporary full calf with raised bands, a fine copy. Custom cloth box

        Iutia Septentrionalis. Per Gerardum Mercatorem Cum Privilegio.

      *** Kort over den midterste del af Jylland udarbejdet af den nyere tids største kartograf, Gerard Mercator. Kortet dækker området fra Horsens i syd til lidt nord for Limfjorden. Kobberstik. 29 x 39,5 cm. Fransk tekst på bagsiden. [ Udgivet af Jodocus Hondius i Amsterdam ca. 1609 ]. Gammel - formentlig samtidig - håndkolorering. Papirmål: 44,5 x 55,5 cm. Papiret er med vertikal midterfold som ved udgivelsen. Tidlig, kraftig, særdeles god kolorering. Topfint eksemplar. - Kortet kommer fra en fransksproget udgave af Mercators Atlas. Kortet blev første gang publiceret i år 1595.. Gerard Mercator (1512-1594). Mercator var aktiv som astronom, kalligraf, kartograf, kobberstikker, instrumentmager, globusmager og landmåler. Han var på en og samme tid videnskabsmand og kunsthåndværker.I de sidste mange år af sit liv arbejdede Mercator på at udgive sine kort i 3 bind. Her blev navnet Atlas for første gang anvendt om en samling af kort. De første to bind af Mercators Atlas blev udgivet i 1585 og 1589, tredie og sidste bind - med Skandinavien og de Arktiske områder - udkom i 1595, året efter Mercators død. I 1602 udkom værket igen i en komplet udgave. Herefter var det ikke længere Mercators arvinger, der stod for udgivelsen af det højt ansete værk.I år 1604 købte Jodocus Hondius kobberpladerne, og i de næste ca. 30 år udsendte Jodocus Hondius og sønnerne Henricus og Jodocus II mange udvidede udgaver af Mercators Atlas - på flere forskellige sprog - som dominerede korthandelen i den første trediedel af det 17. århundrede

Fourthly, to what diseases they be subiect, together with the causes of such diseases, the signes how to know them, and finally how to cure the same.

        PRESBITERI IOHANNIS, SIVE, ABISSINORUM IMPERII DESCRIPTIO.

      Amberes, c. 1609 - -1612. Medidas de la plancha: 375 x 435 mm. Escala: 1:15.000.000. Mapa calcográfico, coloreado y enmarcado en orla, de África central y este perteneciente a la edición española de la obra Theatrum Orbis Terrarum de Ortelius (Theatro de la Tierra universal). Papel levemente tostado. En la esquina superior izquierda encontramos, en cartela, una dedicatoria al rey David encima de la cual puede verse el escudo de armas del preste Juan. Esta figura, el rey mítico de las tierras africanas, libraba supuestamente una guerra contra los infieles del continente. Durante siglos los europeos lo buscaron, primero en Asia y después en África. Los portugueses lo buscaron en el este del continente africano a finales del siglo XV y comienzos del XVI. Los cruzados, por su parte, creían que el preste Juan se convertiría en su aliado en la protección de Tierra Santa contra los sarracenos y de Europa contra otros pueblos invasores. Incluye, además de las cartelas con motivos geográficos y arquitectónicos, varios elementos decorativos como elefantes, barcos y peces. La primera edición española del Theatrum de Ortelius es de 1588. Nuestro ejemplar puede corresponder, atendiendo a la última línea de texto y al número de página, a las ediciones españolas de 1609, 1612 o 1641. En cualquier caso, se tiraron de esta edición 325 planchas del total de 7.300 copias del mapa que vieron la luz entre 1573 y 1612. Van den Broecke 175.

        Primera Parte de los Commentarios Reales, Que Tratan del Origen de los Yncas, Reyes que Fueron del Peru, de su Idolatria, Leyes, y Govierno en Paz y en Guerra

      Pedro Crasbeeck, Lisboa 1609 - Contemporary vellum, manuscript spine title. The history of Peru by a half-Inca Prince. First edition of the "Royal Commentaries" of the great half Spanish, half Inca historian, Garcilaso de la Vega. The Inca was the foremost historian of early Peru, and his works are the basis of our knowledge of Incan history. Born in Cuzco, the son of a Spanish nobleman and an Indian princess, he was a second cousin to the last Incan rulers of Peru. He left Peru as a youth and lived in Spain the rest of his life. The Primera Parte deals entirely with the Incan empire and the conquest of Peru. The Spanish critic, Menendez y Pelayo, called it "the most genuinely American book that has ever been written, perhaps the only one in which a reflection of the soul of the conquered raced has survived." European Americana 609/44; Medina BHA 549; Palau 354788; Sabin 98757. [10],264 leaves. Engraved plate. Woodcut initials throughout. Minor foxing and soiling, some light dampstaining to top edge.

Encuadernación de la época en piel con hierros dorados en el lomo y filetes en los planos. Restaurada mínimamente. Palau 356352. Primera edición."La aparición insólita del retrato de Alfonso octavo, el de las Navas de Tolosa (1212), se debe a que si bien el asunto del poema es la derrota de Ricardo Corazón de León en Jerusalén (fines del siglo xii), el autor se aparta de este tema, y convierte en personajes centrales a Alfonso viii y sus caballeros, los cuales, según algunos cronicones estuvieron en una inexistente y fantástica expedición." [Palau]"Del mismo modo que Lope no logró rivalizar con el Ariosto en su Hermosura de Angélica, así también ahora quedó por bajo de su modelo el intentar acercarse a la brillante epopeya del Tasso. Su amor por la tradición se combinaba con las ideas imperialistas del momento, que miraban a España como el centro del planeta, y así llegó a convertir la Cruzada de Ricardo Corazón de León en una empresa nacional."

"During the Middle Ages, tuberculosis of the lymph glands of the neck was very common and was known variously as scrofula, struma, and the 'Kings Evil'. For centuries it was believed that the 'royal touch' could cure this disease and many English and French monarchs were in the habit of touching their afflicted subjects during major religious holidays. Du Laurens was a firm believer in the effectiveness of the 'royal touch' and, in this work, reports that King Henry IV., often touched and healed as many as 1500 indiviudals at a time" (HOH).

        TWO SIGNIFICANT DUTCH VOYAGES TO THE FAR EAST IN EARLY FRENCH TRANSLATIONS, BOUND TOGETHER AS ISSUED].

      Amsterdam: Cornille Nicolas, 1609. - Two volumes bound in one. Described in greater detail below. Folio. Contemporary paper-covered boards, rebacked in calf, leather label. From the Library of the Earls of Macclesfield, with engraved 1860 bookplate on front pastedown and blind pressure stamp on first two printed leaves of first title. Two highly important Dutch voyages, both in their second French editions and bound together as issued in 1609. These two voyages represent the initial Dutch exploration and expansion to the East Indies, a significant element in a global commercial enterprise which was to develop throughout the 17th century. The two foundation accounts in the present volume, originally issued together by the Amsterdam printer, Cornille Nicolas, include: 1) [Lodewijcksz, Willem]: PREMIER LIVRE DE L'HISTOIRE DE LA NAVIGATION AUX INDES ORIENTALES, PAR LES HOLLANDOIS. Amsterdam: Cornille Nicolas, 1609. 53 leaves. Titlepage with engraved map, forty-five in-text engravings (including three maps), seventeen in-text woodcut illustrations, and one plate on separate leaf following printed text. Moderate soiling on titlepage, slight edge wear to first few leaves. Second French edition, following the first French edition of 1598. Lodewijcksz gives an account of the first Dutch expedition to the East Indies under Cornelius Houtman, from 1595 to 1597. The information collected by Houtman on the spice trade convinced the Dutch they could compete with Portugal's monopoly in the East Indies, and his narrative served to initiate the explosion of Dutch trading at the turn of the century. "Like the English, Houtman's men suffered so severely from scurvy that they had to put in at the Cape of Good Hope and at Antongil Bay in Madagascar to recuperate. But they then sailed straight across the Indian Ocean to the Straits of Sunda and dropped anchor at Bantam in Java without the loss of a ship. At this port, the center of the Javanese pepper trade, a long time was spent. Both natives and Portuguese showed considerable hostility, and Houtman and some of his men were imprisoned. However, the Dutch succeeded in making a commercial treaty and departed with a good cargo. They proceeded eastward to Bali, and then returned along the south coast of Java, thereby acquiring a more correct impression of the width of the island than had prevailed and laid the ghost of Java's being the northern part of the Southern Continent.the Dutch skipper had enough to show for his venture to inspire the merchants of Amsterdam with a determination to exploit the trade" - Penrose. 2) Neck, Jacob Cornelissoon van: LE SECOND LIVRE, IOURNAL OU COMPTOIR, CONTENANT LE VRAY DISCOURS ET NARRATION HISTORIQUE. Amsterdam: Cornille Nicolas, 1609. Two parts. 22,[8] leaves. Titlepages with engraved illustrations, twenty-two in-text engravings (including one map), two in-text woodcuts. Second French edition, following the first French edition of 1601. Van Neck, who represented the Verre Company, commanded three ships which were part of the first successful Dutch trading voyage to the region. The other two ships were commanded by Wybrand Van Warwijck and Jacob Van Heemskerk. Van Neck's vessel became separated from the other two after rounding the Cape of Good Hope, and the three did not reunite again until his arrival in Java in late December 1598. Unlike his Dutch predecessor, Cornelis Houtman, who three years earlier had seized the port of Bantam, Van Neck dealt diplomatically with the natives. "Rather than rejecting the inflated prices asked by the local ruler, he offered to pay over the odds in order to cement a lasting relationship.Van Neck's was the most profitable of the pre-VOC [Dutch East India Company] voyages. Despite the apparently high price paid for spices, he netted a profit of 300 per cent on his overall costs. In 1601, fourteen fleets comprising sixty-five ships sailed for the East Indies, but by that time competition between rival Dutch operators, as well as with the Portuguese, had inflated prices

      Amsterdam: Cornille Nicolas, . 1609 - Two parts. 22,[8] leaves (second part with its own titlepage). Folio. Modern three-quarter morocco and marbled boards, spine gilt. A few leaves with worm tracks expertly repaired. Very good. Second French edition, following the first French edition of 1601, of this important voyages narrative, describing the initial Dutch exploration and expansion to the East Indies, a significant element in a global commercial enterprise which was to develop throughout the 17th-century.

In 1601, fourteen fleets comprising sixty- five ships sailed for the East Indies, but by that time competition between rival Dutch operators, as well as with the Portuguese, had inflated prices and none were as successful as Van Neck's first enterprise" - Howgego. While focused on activity in the East Indies, European Americana notes that the text includes references to Brazil and tobacco from the West Indies. The second part of this 1609 French edition (which has its own titlepage), is an eight-page appendix of words spoken in Java and Malay, includes word lists in French (printed in roman type), Malay (in italic type), and Javanese (in civilité).

        The Anatomie of Humors.

      Thomas Finlason,, Edinburgh: 1609 - 4to. [v], 74 leaves. Woodcut headpiece on title, text within decorative woodcut borders. Tipped in before the title is a leaf with 2 pages of nineteenth-century manuscript dealing with the history of this book. Title lightly browned, but a handsome copy in nineteenth-century russia, rebacked, gilt edges; preserved in a half-calf clamshell box. From the libraries of Charles Tennant, Henry Cunliffe and Abel Berland with their bookplates. First edition of the original printed treatise, exceedingly rare, with no known copies. This work, consisting of prose interspersed with verse, describes the melancholy or humors of man. Like so many other writers on the subject, including Bright and Burton, Grahame's inducement was due in great part to his own experiences with depression and melancholy. It is interesting to note that many historians feel that this book was the major source of inspiration and indeed the original suggestion for Burton's Anatomy of melancholy, which is considered the greatest medical treatise ever written by a layperson. Grahame (1570-1614) was born in Edinburgh. He is described as a traveler, soldier, courtier, and a great scholar who spent some time in exile on the continent (under unknown circumstances) where he wrote this work. According to the Dictionary of National Biography, Grahame was" licentious, and given over to all manner of debordings, but was an acute observer on human character and in lessons of practical wisdom." He spent his last years as an austere Franciscan, indicating that he had possibly struggled with spiritual, in addition to physical conflicts, much like Burton.Only one other known work of Grahame's is extant, a book of poetry entitled The passionate sparke of a relenting minde published in 1604. Both this and the Anatomie of humors were reprinted by the Bannatyne Club in 1830.

        Question royalle et sa décision.

      Paris, Toussainct Du Bray (1740), 1609 - in-8, [1]-56 ff., maroquin vert, dos lisse orné en long, encadrement de triple filet doré sur les plats, tranches dorées (reliure de l'époque). Mors restaurés. Annotations de l'époque illisibles sur la page de titre. Ex-libris Bibliothèque Yves Cazaux. Bon exemplaire. Seconde édition, reproduisant le détail de l'originale, en l'améliorant d'ailleurs sur le plan de la typographie. L'adresse et la date de la première édition sont reproduites, mais le livre a dû paraître vers 1740. Il faut dire que l'originale se rencontre tout à fait exeptionnellement. Ce premier titre du futur abbé de Saint-Cyran, daté de l'année même où il fit la rencontre de Jansénius, expose, dans la meilleure tradition d'une casuistique qu'il abhorrera plus tard, un "casus conscientiae" typique de la morale probabiliste : dans quelles circonstances, et en temps de paix, est-il loisible à un sujet de conserver la vie de son prince aux dépens de la sienne ? Pour comprendre cet apparent paradoxe, il faut se souvenir que Duvergier de Hauranne fit toute ses études chez les Jésuites, et qu'il s'y montra un disciple brillant. Brunet, IV, 1014.
