Please note, pages 345-348, two leaves,are missing otherwise collated complete. Issue points: page 8 is numbered as 10, page 311 labelled as 31. Edmund Spenser (15521599), poet and administrator in Ireland. Spenser's Shepheardes Calender was a popular work and was reprinted in 1581, 1586, 1591, and 1597, demonstrating that Spenser did make an impact as our new poet. Spenser had clearly been working hard on his poetry, even though he had published next to nothing since his initial success with The Shepheardes Calender. The Faerie Queene was a new departure in the history of English poetry, being a combination of Italian romance, classical epic, and native English styles, principally derived from Chaucer. Spenser signalled this by inventing a new stanza (which has come to be known as the Spenserian stanza), a hybrid form adopted from the Scots poetry of James I, rhyme royal, and Italian ottava rima. It contained nine lines, the first eight being pentameters and the last line an alexandrine, and employed the rhyme scheme ababbcbcc. It was accompanied by seventeen dedicatory sonnets to a variety of figures. The poem ha … [Click Below for Full Description]

Vega Carpio, Félix Lope de.
Juan de la Cuesta,, Madrid, 1609. 16 hojas, 536 folios. En las hojas de preliminares figuran los retratos del autor y el de Alfonso viii. Discreto sello de antigua libreria en la portada. 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."

VIGENERE (Blaise de) & BAUDOUIN (Jean).
chez Jean Richer [1609], A Paris. In-4 de (56)-128-341-(39) pp. 430-(64) pp., vélin souple à petits rabats, pièce de titre imprimée sur le dos (reliure de l'époque). Ecrit sous l'inspiration de Sully, Jean Baudouin, sous le pseudonyme de Antoine de Bandole, avocat au Parlement de Provence, fait un parallèle de la vie de César et de celle d'Henri IV dont l'intérêt est de montrer un roi belliqueux. Ce récit est adressé au Dauphin à qui il donne beaucoup de conseils pour mener une armée. Il note dans son récit que : « César ne tenait aucun compte des prédictions , moins encore Henry ». Quant à Pierre de l'Estoile, il rapporte que le matin de sa mort, Henri IV vit venir à lui son fils, le duc Alexandre de Vendôme, qui lui dit que sa mort avait été prédite pour ce jour. Le roi, après avoir bien ri, lui rappelle que seul Dieu décide de l'heure de la mort. Titre-frontispice et figures gravées dans le texte. Malgré une pagination chaotique, l'ouvrage est bien complet de ses trois parties et de leurs pièces liminaires non paginées, suivies de la table chronologique dont le verso du dernier feuillet indique : Achevé d'imprimer le douziesme May mil six cens neuf. Hauser, IV 2627. Bel exemplaire.

LORINI, Buonaiuto. Description of machine tools of construction & a newly invented surveying instrument
Venice, Francesco Rampazetto, 1609. 2 parts in 1 volume, folio. [12] + 299 (misnumbered 303) + [1]p. Roman & italic letter. Large woodcut vignette of a cannon on both titles; with author's engraved portrait by W[olfgang] Kilian; with over 150 woodcut illustrations, many of which are half-page or larger (15 are full-page and 5 double-page); diagrams on pp1-6; numerous woodcut initials; printer's device at end. Vellum. The first complete edition of the earliest book on fortification offering accurate measured plans and systematic instructions which could be put into practice by a military architect. Lorini (c.1540-1611) with forty years experience in Flanders and later in the Turkish wars, advocates a method of regular bastioned traces with flanks defended by forward orillons; he also describes a concise system of reducing a fortress by the use of artillery. Book I stresses that fortification is a science, and book III contains an overview of the most significant fortification methods in use to date. The most intriguing part of this work is however book V, dedicated to machine tools of construction, describing and illustrating a variety of hoists and tackle, a water-raising engine, a dredger for draining swamps, a rope-way for rapidly moving earth, a diving bell for subterraneous work, mills, folding ladders, and the construction of pontoon bridges. The sixth book on surveying, with 27 additional illustrations and including a newly invented surveying instrument, is here contained for the first time.

Spenser, Edmund
London, Bell and Daldy, 1609. Reprint Slip-Case - Hard Cover. Edmund Spenser was an English poet best known for his "The Faerie Queen" a long allegorical poem published in 1609. His first important publication was "The Shepheardes Calender" Published in 1579. Both of these works remain of great interest and retain their lofty postition in literature. This offering is a fove volume set of his complete poetical works. The set is in near-fine condition with minor shelfwear to the tops and bottoms of the spine.There is no foxing in the set and the text is clean and fine. The bindings are in finely decorated book cloth on both the front and back boards with gold highlights.There is no date on the books but I would estimate publication around the last half of the 1800's at the very beginning of the art deco movement in publishing. In the advertisement at the front of the first volume it says that "painstaking accuracy was employed to render it the most correct text extant. This leaves little to be done in the way of corrections or emendations by any future editor". The books are housed in a beautiful custom made bookcloth slipcase to hold the set and there are silk ribbons to make it easier to slide the books out with no damage. Each volume is also in its own mylar wrapper to afford further protection. The slipcase is green to match the color of the bindings and is not shown in the photograph because I wanted you to see the books themselves. The set makes a lovely presentation. We are pleased to send pictures on request. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

GRIMESTON, Edward
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.

Neck, Jacob Cornelissoon van:
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. 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

LONICER (LONITZER), Adam [HAND-COLORED PLATES]
Frankfort: S. Latomus for V. Steinmeyer, 1609. Hardcover. This copy has several leaves in facsimile: the contents page, the last three pages of text (only one illustration affected), and six leaves of the register. The front blank is lacking, and there is an eight-page manuscript index with notes at the rear. Text generally aged but mostly clean with occasional soiling and several repairs; first few leaves including the title page laid down. Considering that this book was likely used in maintaining a family's health and was subject to hard use, this delightful and attractive compendium is in Very Good condition. Two parts in one volume with separate title pages. Small folio (7-1/4" x 11-3/4") bound in somewhat later parchment-backed boards; [14], [1], 1-382, [19] pages. An early edition of one of the most popular herbals of the time and a richly illustrated scientific and medical encyclopedia. Eventually over twenty editions were published, the first in 1546 and the last in 1783. This copy has its approximately 800 woodcuts, all with early hand-coloring. The woodcuts are mainly botanical, but the final section of 70 leaves includes birds, mammals, and related subjects. Also depicted are scenes of farming, mining, and distilling. Graesse IV, 256; Nissen 1228; Pritzel 5599.

Following the first novel, there is a series of poems which the last is a fundamentally erotic poem entitled enigma. ITE was a novelist Languedoc whose ornate and lyrical style is relatively complex. His way is relatively modern and original in the early seventeenth. Its literature seems nourished by Greek-Latin and Italian novelists of the sixteenth, but with a much more tragic and dramatic accent.

Lescarbot, Marc (c.1570-1642)
Paris: 1609 THE FIRST DETAILED MAP DEVOTED TO CANADA Copper-plate engraving: 73/4" x 171/2" References: Philip D. Burden, The Mapping of North America: A List of Printed Maps 1511-1670 (Rickmansworth, 1996), 193. This is the 1609 English edition of the first map devoted to Canada, and constituted the most accurate mapping of the area in existence up until that time. Quite significantly, Marc Lescarbot's 1609 map of New France pre-dated Samuel de Champlain's more recognizable one by three years. Lescarbot's chart was originally produced to accompany the book entitled, Histoire de la Nouvelle France. This text was, in turn, intended to encourage French settlement to the New World. Lescarbot was a Protestant lawyer who lived in New France for over a year. He participated in the famed French expedition, whose members included Samuel de Champlain, that founded Port Royal, Nova Scotia in 1606. Champlain left Lescarbot in charge of Port Royal when the legendary French voyager embarked on his second expedition of New England. Lescarbot's map beautifully illustrates the St. Lawrence River's reach into the former Indian village Hochelaga, or present-day Montreal. It also indicates the location of Tadousac, which in 1600 became the first European trading post ever to be established in Canada. Tadousac is located in the map at the mouth of the R. de Saguenay and adjacent to the River Lesquemin, which is mistakenly named in reverse. "Kebec" is also featured for the first time on a printed map in its Micmac forming, meaning the narrows of the river. Lescarbot carefully relied on Ch … [Click Below for Full Description]

Modern dark green morocco gilt by Sangorski & Sutcliffe, covers and spine gilt, gilt turn-ins, gilt edges (upper outer joint slightly tender). The Boise Penrose copy of the rare first English edition of this highly important source for the history of Canada, published the same year as the French first edition, complete with the first and most accurate contemporary map of Canada. The rare first English edition of this premier source for the history of Canada, published the same year as the French first edition, complete with the first contemporary and detailed map of Canada. Lescarbot was a French writer and lawyer who spent the winter of 1606-7 at Port Royal, Acadia. He gives accounts of early French voyages and discoveries in America such as those of Villegagnon to Brazil, Verrazzano, Ribaut and Laudonnière to Florida, Champlain, sieurs de Poutrincourt and de Monts, Cartier, and Roberval. Also included is much information concerning the Indian tribes, especially those of northeastern Canada, to whom the second book in this English edition is devoted.

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..
