        De mirabili strumas samandi vi solis Galliae Regibus divinitus concessa liber unus, et de strumarum naturae curatione quae fit arte medica liber alter.

      8°. 8 n.n. Bl., 293 (recte 307) S., 9 n.n. Bl. Index. Mit gestochenem Titel. Lederband der Zeit mit goldgeprägtem Rückenschild und reicher floraler Rückenvergoldung. Garrison-M. 3806. - HOH 388. - Waller 2626. - Wellcome I, 1940. - Erste Ausgabe. "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). Du Laurens (1558-1609) wurde durch Protektion Leibarzt von Henri IV. "Si l'on juge ce médecin d'après ses oeuvres, on peut croire avec raison qu'il dut les honneurs dont il était investi, et le crédit dont il jouissait, bien moins à son mérite qu'à la faveur et à l'intrigue" (Dict. hist. méd. II, 151). Aller Kritik zum Trotz werden in diesem Buch die Erkrankungen der Schilddrüse erstmals beschrieben. - Unser Exemplar ohne das Kupfer das den König beim Heilen zeigt. - Alter Besitzvermerk auf dem Titel. Einband bestossen. Am oberen Kapital mit kleiner Fehlstelle.

Dimensions: 22,5 x 33,8 cm. 1(f), titre avec vignette gravée, 1 feuille d'introduction, 4 feuilles d'index, 128 feuilles, 1(f). Erreur de numérotation de la feuille 17 à la feuille 40. Exemplaire complet de cette première édition, illustrée de très nombreuses gravures in texte. Habile restauration dans la marge du feuillet 22. Ouvrage prépondérant du maitre et ami de Galilée, Guidobaldo del Monte, ou Guidobaldi, ou encore Guido d'Ubalde1 (né le 11 janvier 1545 à Pesaro dans la province des Marches - mort le 6 janvier 1607 dans son château de Montebaroccio), Marquis del Monte, était un mathématicien, philosophe et astronome italien du XVIe siècle. Ses travaux de statique annoncèrent la notion de travail mécanique. Il développa de nouvelles méthodes de calcul du centre de gravité pour des surfaces et des volumes variés. Il était sûrement, d'après Galilée lui-même, un des plus grands spécialistes de mécanique et mathématiques du 16ème siècle. In Folio [Attributes: First Edition]

        Gemmarum et Lapidum historia, qua non solum ortus, natura, vis & precium, sed etiam modus quo exiis, olea, salia, tinctura, essentia, arcana ...

      1609. Hanau, Wechsel, 1609. 4to (219 x 170mm). pp. 8, (xii), 294 (recte 284), (16), with two folding tables, 31 woodcuts in the text. Recent vellum. First edition of Boodt's fundamental manual on mineralogy and gemmology. Title laid down, 2 leaves with paper repair, with no loss of text. Boodt (ca. 1550-1632) court physician to Rudolf II, 'made the first attempt at a systematic description of minerals, dividing the minerals into great and small, rare and common, hard and soft, combustible and incombustible, transparent and opaque. He uses a scale of hardness expressed in three degrees and notes the crystalline forms of some minerals (triangular, quadratic, and hexangular). He enumerates about 600 minerals that he knows from personal observation, and describes their properties, values, imitations, and medical applications. There are also tables of values of diamonds according to their size and a short description of the polishing of precious stones' (Wlodzimierz Hubicki in DSB). The woodcuts illustrate crystals, gemstones, fossils, and a variety of jewellers' cutting and polishing equipment. Cobres II p. 717; Ward and Carozzi 251; Sinkankas 778..

        Primera parte de los commentarios reales que tratan del origen de los Yncas, reyes que fueron del Perú, de su idolatría, leyes y govierno en paz y en guerra: de sus vidas y conquistas, y de todo lo que fue aquel Imperio y su republica antes que los españoles passaran a él.

      Lisboa, Pedro Craesbeeck, (al fin 1608) 1609 - 10 h. inc. port. y hoja de erratas, 264 fol. Pergamino de época. Primera edición, rara y estimada, de una de las obras más importantes para la historia del Perú, y sin duda la gran obra maestra del Inca Garcilaso, donde ofrece una visión completa de la historia, cultura y costumbres de los Incas y otros pueblos del antiguo Perú, y que sería prohibido por la Corona española en todas sus colonias de América, al considerarla sediciosa y peligrosa para sus intereses, pues alentaba el recuerdo de los incas. El autor, en el proemio de su obra, dice así: “Aunque ha habido españoles curiosos que han escrito las repúblicas del Nuevo Mundo, como la de México y la del Perú y las de otros reinos de aquella gentilidad, no ha sido con la relación entera que de ellos se pudiera dar, que lo he notado particularmente en las cosas que del Perú he visto escritas, de las cuales, como natural de la ciudad del Cuzco, que fue otra Roma en aquel Imperio, tengo más larga y clara noticia que la que hasta ahora los escritores han dado. Verdad es que tocan muchas cosas de las muy grandes que aquella república tuvo, pero escríbenlas tan cortamente que aun las muy notorias para mí (de la manera que las dicen) las entiendo mal. Por lo cual, forzado del amor natural de la patria, me ofrecí al trabajo de escribir estos Comentarios, donde clara y distintamente se verán las cosas que en aquella república había antes de los españoles, así en los ritos de su vana religión como en el gobierno que en paz y en guerra sus Reyes tuvieron, y todo lo demás que de aquellos indios se puede decir, desde lo más ínfimo del ejercicio de los vasallos hasta lo más alto de la corona real.” Ejemplar con algunas restauraciones de polilla, hoja de erratas (que normalmente falta a los pocos ejemplares que salen al mercado) y primera de texto con restauración afectando a primera línea de texto, mancha de humedad en margen superior del fol. 23, anotaciones a tinta en los márgenes, manchas de oxidación generalizada.

        Le Lict d'honneur de Chariclee Ou sont introduites les infortunees & tragiques amours du Comte de Melisse

      Paris: Robert Fouet, 1609 Paris: Robert Fouet, 1609. Intras de Bazas, Jean d'. Le Lict d'honneur de Chariclee Ou sont introduites les infortunees & tragiques amours du Comte de Melisse. Paris: Robert Fouet, 1609. Cioranescu 35833. 12mo. 19th century three quarter red morocco. Leaf of title, verso blank; 12pp. epistre a M. De Castlenav; 2pp. epigram; 1p. In Zoilum; 5pp. verses by P. De Gue, P. Ducasse, P. Vincens; 99 leaves of text; 3pp. verse A. La Puiade. Collation a11, A-H12, I5 (I2 missigned E2). Title page engraving of four figures conversing: three women (two seated) and one man standing before them. Very good clean copy with slight darkening of text. Le Lict d'honneur is a romance written in a flowery and sentimental style that takes the hero to the New World. Reynier notes that, while the story is set in Mexico in the town of Temistitan, there is nothing in the characters drawn in the novel which characterizes manners of that country. Intras was writing at the beginning of the early modern novel in France. The subject matter and style were relatively original at the beginning of the 17th century, although they were heavily adopted by novelists in the second quarter. Forgotten for his excesses of poetic writing and his lack of plot, Intras was revisited if not revived in the 19th century "Jean d' Intras, of Bazas, fertile and bombastic novelist , author of odd works with disordered metaphors and mystical melanges" (Mailliet). Overall, it is generally felt that his style while extravagant was influential on French early modern prose by developing a more complex dramatic tone than his antecedents. Intras was from Languedoc writing in the Gascon dialect. The basis of his nouvelles were the Graeco-Latin classics and the Italian romances of the mid-16th century. Regarding Intras' popularity in his own time, he may have had a following since three of his other novels were also published in 1609 by Fouet: Le dvel de Tithamante; Le portraict de la vraye amante; Le desespoir amoureux. These may have been part of a collected edition. Ref: Mailliet, "Gascons de Jadis." p. 395 In Revue politique et litteraire: revue bleue. Bureau des revues, 1899; Reynier Gustave.

        In his first year in office, he tries to get some of the money back that his father loaned to Spain Autograph memo, signed "Il Granduca di Tosc.a

      Florence: 20 November, 1609. Very Good/The favorite projects of the Spanish monarch Philip II (reigned 1556-1598) included purging Spain of crypto-Jews, subjugating the indigenous people in conquered lands, and building the Escorial palace. Conventional wisdom holds that these projects were funded with New World gold, but in fact a great deal of the money was borrowed. Among Philip's sources was the Monte di Pieta', a 150-year-old lending institution that the Grand Dukes of Tuscany used to manipulate to accomplish foreign policy objectives. Francesco De Medici awarded himself a massive loan through the Monte di Pieta' that he lent in turn to the Spanish monarch. Philip II was indifferent to his debts and to their carrying charges, and by 1609 Spain owed Florence over a million scudi. By that time, Florence had sent a permanent envoy to Madrid, Raffaello Romena, to discuss the matter of repayment. In the exchange offered here, on 23 October 1609, a treasurer ("depostario") of the Grand Duke reports on Romena's failed attempts to arrange a payment on the debt, and on his plans to extract a cash reimbursement involving agents in Sicily. The Grand Duke responds in a note appended to the same page, dated 3 November 1609, "Maintain the order given to Romena to convert to cash everything that can be collected for the oaths touching the Monte di Pieta, and the same for the credit that we have with Santa Marta Cattolica, and also let's approve the order that was given to the Santoni and Federighi in Sicily to provide the 100,000 scudi in cash [cotanti], and for the rest, give charity to St. Alt.(?), resolving it in a way to have them come. 20 november 1609 the Grand Duke of Tosc.a." .

      A rare translation by Linschoten, referring to the expulsion of Moors from Spain by using whatever means necessary. 1609. Meyn. Enkhuizen, J. Lenaertsz. In 4to (190 mm x 142 mm). 6 pp. Modern boards. A very good copy, only scattered foxing. Van Linschoten's translation of King Philip III of Spain's proclamation ordering the Duke of Lerma to expel the Moors from Spain, a decision that would ultimately contribute to the decline of Spain's power, and of considerable importance to the Dutch, as the 12 Year's Truce turned their military contest with Spain into an economic one. It opens with the opinion of religious advisors and explaining the Moors alleged dealings with the enemies of the crown. The imprint continues with the King?s order itself, which gives the Duque de Lerma and his officers free reign to carry out the expulsion by whatever means they see fit, to confiscate lands and goods, and to set an example for all sympathetic to the Moors. The Moriscos were Spanish Moors who had converted to Christianity, but were never assimilated into the Spanish communities. Tiele, Pamfletten, 790.

        [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 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, 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). Two of the most important of the pioneering French voyages to the Far East, bound together as probably issued in this edition. Lodewijcksz: EUROPEAN AMERICANA 609/71. TIELE-MULLER 115. JCB (3)II:63.

        Virginia Item et Floridae Americae Privinciarum, nova Descriptio

      Amsterdam, 1609. No Binding. Near Fine. 13 ¾ x 19 ¼ inches. Fine original color; reinforced along margins, else excellent. A very attractive, original color example of one of the most richly engraved maps of the southeast United States. "Its influence, both direct and indirect, extended into the middle of the eighteenth century" (Cumming). The map assembled geographic knowledge of the Southeast that was largely derived from surveys conducted during the earliest French and English attempts to colonize the area, specifically the doomed Ribaut/ Laudonniere colony in North Florida and South Carolina and the equally unsuccessful, English Roanoke settlement. Decorative details include Indian villages and figures, native and European vessels, sea monsters, and flora and fauna Cumming 26; Burden 151.

        Le jardin, et cabinet poetique de Paul Contant, apoticaire de Poictiers

      Poitiers: Anthoine Mesnier, 1609. Hardcover. Very Good. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. 4to. [19.5 x 13 cm] (12) ff., including engraved title, 99 (1) pp. [verso blank], (2) ff., with 9 full-page plates of specimens and 1 folding, densely engraved floral plate. Bound in contemporary calf, covers slightly abraded, gilt spine in 6 compartments, with title label gilt. Unidentified private collector's stamp on front flyleaf ("Serrant"). Inconsequential even toning, otherwise fresh, genuine copy, with the plates in very good impression. Extremely rare first edition of the first museum book in French, Paul Contant's illustrated account of his collection of curiosities, one of the earliest scientific collections in Europe, and almost certainly the rarest of all museum books. Dedicated to Contant's fellow Huguenot the Duc de Sully (memorialised in museum history by the Louvre pavillion bearing his name), each copy seems to have been assembled to serve as a program for individual visitors, thus accounting for its extraordinary rarity (see below). While taking the form of an extended poem rich in florid language and classical allusions, Contant's inventory also provides precious documentary evidence for the most noteworthy items of this very early collection. Progressing systematically through each specimen, Contant regularly inserts numbers into the poem that point the reader to both an index entry and an illustration. The 43 animal specimens-ranging from a very rotund blowfish to a dog with eight legs and a one-eyed sheep-are depicted on a series of 9 plates, while flora are depicted on a single folding plate in the form of a vast bouquet. This system allows the reader to see the name and picture of each specimen as he reads the description, thereby reproducing or complementing a guided tour through the garden and cabinet and providing a seminal example of the museum book genre. Schnapper stresses the importance of the author's Huguenot background in making him more open and curious about natural historical wonders that challenge the traditional picture of the natural world allied to the Catholic Church; it is also of interest that the work hails from the provinces, outside of any academic milieu. Thanks to a partial inventory of the collection and an engraving of one of the storage cabinets made some years later by Contant, in addition to an eyewitness account by the Polish traveler Abraham Gölnitz and records of the collection's posthumous relocation-which took four men seven days!-we know that the collection would come to contain several thousand items. It included not only the animals, animal bones, live trees and flowers described in the poem, but also 15 folio volumes of dried plants, and hundreds of fossils, minerals, seashells, perfume bottles, and small statues as well as a 6-meter-long canoe. OCLC lists two copies, Getty and Hunt Botanical Institute. As both records indicate variant signatures, we had both copies checked. In the Hunt copy, two leaves in the prelims are signed differently than in the present copy, but the text is identical, as is the total number of leaves. The plates in the Hunt copy are bound at the back. The Getty copy also has the identical content and number of leaves, with the only difference that in their copy signature aV is misbound after c2. Although the total number of leaves and plates in a complete copy is firm, differences in their ordering are typical of recorded copies: the records provided by M. Marrache-Gouraud and P. Martin of the four copies at the Poitiers Mediatèque show that none of the four is identical in arrangement. As they note, this suggests that Contant assembled each copy on a case-by-case basis. With thanks to Ms Charlotte Tancin of the Hunt Botanical Institute and Ms Jeanne Robert at the Getty for checking their respective copies. * Hunt 188; Marrache-Gouraud and Martin, 'Introduction', Paul Contant: Le Jardin, et Cabinet poétique (Rennes, 2004); Librairie Paul Jammes, Cabinets de Curiosités, Collections, Co

        America

      Amsterdam: Jodocus Hondius, 1609. unbound. very good. Map. Engraving with early hand coloring. Image measures 14.75" x 19.75". Beautiful early map of the Americas with part of Australia. Includes vignette of Brazilians making alcohol, as depicted by De Bry. Decorative animals and ships dot the seas, exemplifying various regions including Japan, Greenland, Florida, South America, and Europe. From the 1609 French edition of "Gerardi Mercatoris Atlas sive Cosmographicae" (Mercator-Hondius Atlas). Originally created by Mercator, this plate was later added to by Hondius. Based on numerous sources, Hondius' updated version is more accurate, particularly in the west coast of South America. Overall toning, with discoloration along centerfold and edges. Jodocus Hondius (1563-1612) was a prolific 17th century Dutch mapmaker who purchased Mercator's plates in 1604.

        America siue India Nova ad magnae Gerardi Mercatoris aui Vniversalis imitationem in compendium redacta

      [Amsterdam: Hondius, 1609-1639]. Copper-engraved map, French text on verso. Roundels at each corner with inset maps of the Gulf of Mexico, Cuba and Hispaniola, the remaining containing the cartouche. 16 1/4 x 22 inches. A fine example of one of the most celebrated maps of the Americas, the only printed map by Gerard Mercator's grandson Michael. Made by Gerard's grandson Michael to complete the atlas (Atlantis Pars Altera) begun by Gerard in 1584, this map is noted for its outstanding design and beauty, particularly its symmetrical configuration of circular insets and Mannerist flow of vines, flowers and leaves surrounding the circular map. Largely based on Rumold Mercator's world map of 1587, this map aptly reflects 16th-century knowledge, theories and suppositions regarding the New World. Naturally, most of this new knowledge was coastal, and configurations of any large areas were greatly hampered by the lack of a sound means of determining longitude. Nevertheless, the collective accomplishment of explorers and mapmakers represented in this map is astounding, showing in a generally correct way the vast extent of the New World. "A few of the most famous theories are still present: a large inland lake in Canada, two of the four islands of the North Pole, a bulge to the west coast of South America and the large southern continent" (Burden). The map appeared in 1595 and 1606 editions of the Atlantis Pars Altera, after which the plate was sold to Jodocus Hondius, who reissued the maps in varying editions through 1639. The present example includes French text on verso (confirming it to be a Hondius issue), but is apparently an unrecorded variant without a signature mark on verso.
