AUGUSTINE, Saint.
[London,] Printed by George Eld. 1610, 1609. Folio, pp. [18], 921, [9]; a few spots and ink stains, some occasional underlining, withal a very good copy in late seventeenth- or early eighteenth-century panelled calf, rubbed, neatly rebacked preserving most of the old spine; early ownership inscription at end crossed through.First edition in English of Augustine's City of God, translated by the traveller and gentleman's steward John Healey. 'Our earliest treatise on the philosophy of history', as Voltaire called it, City of God is a cornerstone of Western thought, pervading the whole of the Middle Ages, and its influence on political thinking has been enormous, but it was not available to an English audience in the vernacular until Healey's translation. 'Running to more than half a million words, it is one of the largest early modern English translations. Healey's rendering of the Latin is loose but competent, and his rhyming verse translations of the Latin poetry quoted in text and commentary are quite attractive He undertook the project at the instigation of William Crashaw' (Oxford DNB), father of the poet, who would later revise the text for the second edition (1620). The apparatus is translated from that of Juan Luis Vives, who had dedicated the first edition of his commentary to Henry VIII – Henry's letter to Vives and Vives's reply are part of the preliminary matter here.Healey had travelled through Europe in 1603-4, where he embraced the Catholic Church before returning to England as tutor to the children of the recusant Carnaby family in Northumberland.

Edmund Spenser
London: Printed by H. L. [Humphrey Lownes] for Mathew Lownes, 1609. First Folio Edition. Full Leather. Very Good binding. First Folio Edition of Edmund Spenser's The Faerie Queene, with the first issue of two cantos of Mutabilitie. Originally criticized for his use of obsolete and archaic diction, Spenser is now regarded as a literary artist, who used outdated words and spelling to mirror the tone and message of the work. The origin of the 'Spenserian stanza,' and one of the longest poems in English, The Faerie Queene would become the defining work of Spenser's career. Elaborately engraved title page vignettes, headpieces, tailpieces, initials, and cartouches to the head of each canto. Lacking A1, being the title page and dedication, with facsimile title page pasted onto a sympathetic blank; first page of text trimmed and mounted; pages 157/158, and 165/166 misplaced by the binder, but still present, appearing a leaf after they should; lacking final blank leaf. [2], 363, [3] pp. Early marginalia scattered throughout. Provenance in ink, bookdealer's notes in pencil, and pasted 19th century catalog clipping to the front endpapers. Contemporary recipe for ink written at the bottom of the colophon. 18th or early 19th century rebinding. Recent leather repairs at the extremities of the spine and along the joints. Full speckled calf, double ruled in blind at the perimeter of the boards. (ESTC S1728. ). Very Good binding.

Jewel, John; Anne Bacon, translator
London: John Norton, 1609. Hardcover. Very Good. First edition, 1609, of his collected works, in English. Folio (13 inches; 33 cm) in late 19th century half calf and marbled boards, red spine label. All three titles have their own title pages; there is no general title page. (54) 652; (41) 472 (7); 153 pp. Thus, this copy has three complete works by Jewel, but is INCOMPLETE; complete copies have a general title page, and the first work should be 'A Sermon Made in Latine at Oxenford' (34pp prefatory material and 62pp text). After 'A View of a Seditious Bull' paginated continuously to page 291, should be: "An exposition upon the two epistles of the Apostle Saint Paul to the Thessalonians" and "Certaine sermons preached before the Queens Maiestie" -- each have separate dated title page but pagination is continuous. Thus, our copy lacks nearly 100 pp at the beginning and 138 pp. at the end. On the upside, the condition of this is superb; the binding shows rubbing and wear to corners and joints, with some restoration to both inner hinges and outer joints, but the text of the three works is incredibly bright and wide-margined. Only blemish is to pp. 644-650 of the first book, some stains and light wear......John Jewel (1522-1571) started his Christian life as a Catholic, and on publishing some letters as a Catholic, was forced to flee, ending up first in Frankfort and then in Padua, but not wedded to Catholicism, he made a concerted effort to redeem himself as an English Protestant and so gained enough favor in the court of Elizabeth I that he became Bishop of Salisbury in 155 … [Click Below for Full Description]

VAN SCHOEL, Henricus
[Rome,: Henricus van Schoel, 1609]. [Rome,: Henricus van Schoel,, 1609].. Il mondo nuovo su chiamato America da Amerigo Vespucci Fiorentino il quale la scopri circa 5 annj doppo Christoforro Colombo... Double page engraved map, minor expert paper repairs to margins and central fold. A separately-published Lafreri school map of the Americas, the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, extending to Asia in the west, and Europe in the east with a large land mass labelled ‘Terra Australis Incognita' in the south. It is decorated with sea-monsters, a large galleon, and a fine mannerist strapwork cartouche. The map is derivative of Arnoldo di Arnoldi's c1600 map of the same title. Van Schoel's map is detailed and mostly accurate. For example, California is correctly shown as a peninsula, and New Guinea as a separate island; however, Terra Australis, the great unknown south land, awaits discovery. To cover up his lack of knowledge of southern geography, Terra Australis is partially and cleverly covered by the title cartouche. Burden notes that there are a few minor differences between this map and Arnoldi's. For example, in van Schoel's cartouche the letters ‘M' and ‘E' are not ligatured and the coat of arms is left blank. Additionally, the place name ‘S. Augusti' in the east of North America has been omitted, and the Pacific Islands labelled ‘Baxos de S. Bartolomeo' are named but inexplicably left out. Copies of this map are very rare. In fact, it was unrecorded until Philip Burden acquired a copy in a composite atlas in 1992. Burden was then able to determine the map's author and d … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bartolomeo del Bene
Paris Ambroise and Jérôme Drouart 1609. Folio (343x214 mm). Collation: A4, 2A-Z4, Aa-Hh4, Ii6. [8], 258, [2] pages. Complete with fol. A4 blank. Roman, italic, and Greek type. Engraved title-page and thirty-three engraved plates by Thomas de Leu, including a double-page plan of the City of Truth. Woodcut initials, head-and tailpieces. Contemporary vellum, over pasteboards. Spine with title in gilt on lettering-piece. Some wear. A fine and tall copy, slightly browned, pale waterstain at the upper margin. A manuscript note in French on the front flyleaf.Rare first edition of this remarkable utopian work, a poetic meditation in Latin hexameters, based on the Nicomachean Ethics by Aristotle. The Civitas veri sive morum was written in 1585 by the diplomat and poet Bartolomeo Del Bene, and posthumously edited in 1609 by his nephew Alfonso, bishop of Albi, who dedicated the publication to Henri IV. The text is accompanied by a commentary by Théodore Marcile (1548-1617). The poem describes a journey to the City of Truth (Civitas veri) which begins at the Palace of Strength and takes us to the Palaces of Moderation and Excess; we then arrive at the Temples of Glory and Generosity, and finally at the Labyrinth of Vices. The Basilica of Magnanimity and Modesty is a dignified structure, and so too is the House of Courtesy. The contrast is quickly apparent: arrogance, falsity, and injustice are present in the forms of buildings. The edifices of Heroism, Abstinence, and Justice, represent the goal of a virtuous life. The work is divided into thirty days, starting from the canonical descr … [Click Below for Full Description]

Kepler, Johannes
Prag / Bruxelles, / Gabriel Lebon, 1609 / 1968 Kl.2°, 1 Bl., 337 S., zahlr. Textabb., 1 Faltkarte,, OLdr. mit Rückenschild, Min. gebrauchspurig. Kepler (1571-1630) erbte von Tycho Brahe eine Fülle von sehr genauen Datenreihen über die Positionen der Planeten. Die Schwierigkeit war. darin einen Sinn zu erkennen. denn wie das nebenstehende Bild beispielhaft zeigt. sieht es so aus. als würden manche Planeten Schleifen am Himmel vollführen. Das liegt daran. dass die Umlaufbewegungen der anderen Planeten von einer Erde aus betrachtet werden. die selbst die Sonne umkreist. Kepler konzentrierte sich darauf. die Marsbahn zu verstehen. doch zunächst musste er die Bewegung der Erde genau kennen. Dafür brauchte er eine Vermessungslinie. Er benutzte Mars und Sonne als Basislinie. ohne die genaue Umlaufbahn des Mars zu kennen. Auf diese Weise wurden die Positionen der Erde berechnet und von diesen der Umlauf des Mars. So konnte er seine Planetengesetze ohne Kenntnis der genauen Abstände der Planeten von der Sonne ableiten. weil seine geometrische Analyse nur das Verhältnis ihrer Abstände benötigte. Im Gegensatz zu Brahe glaubte Kepler an das heliozentrische System. Ausgehend von diesem Gerüst verbrachte er zwanzig Jahre mit sorgfältigen Versuchen und Überprüfungen. um eine mathematische Beschreibung der Planetenbewegungen zu finden. die zu den beobachteten Daten passt. Nach etwa zehn Jahren fand er die ersten beiden der drei Planetengesetze. Zweites Keplersches Gesetz Als Nachfolger Brahes erhielt Kepler vollen Zugang zu dessen Aufzeichnungen. Im Jahr 1600 war das Werk des englisc … [Click Below for Full Description]

Garcilaso de la Vega, "El Inca"
Pedro Crasbeeck, Lisbon, 1609. [10],264 leaves, plus engraved plate. Small folio. Contemporary vellum, manuscript spine title, remnants of pigskin ties. Minor foxing and soiling, some light dampstaining to top edge. Very good. 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."

Sr. Escrita por el capellán de la Magestad de la Emperatriz y Retor de Villa hermosa. Date and publisher: Madrid. Ediciones de Alonso Martín. 1609. Description: First edition of one of the first books to deal fully with the Spanish conquest of the Moluccas, the Spice Islands, and of the Philippines, 1564--1572, under the conquistador Miguel López de Legaspi. This famous book deals with those exploits, with the natural history of these islands, the manners and customs of the natives and the voyages through the Straits of Magellan; regarded by Hill as an 'essential work for the history of Spanish and Portuguese exploration in the East Indies'.

Ronsard, Pierre de.
Chez Nicolas Buon, 1609. Dubbed "the prince of poets," Ronsard was one of the leading lights of the French Renaissance; his influence was felt in his own time via the school of poetry he helped found (La Pléiade) and thereafter through his revitalization of classical forms and inspiration. The first collected edition of his extensive oeuvre appeared in 1567, published by Buon, who in tribute to Ronsard's enduring popularity continued to produce various updated, corrected, and annotated versions into the 17th century. The present volume, vol. 11 of Buon's 1609-10 printing of the complete works, offers some of the poet's most significant productions -- including many of his best-known poems along with more obscure verses, as well as his important l'Abrégé de l'art poétique français. It is set here as a => duodecimo rather than Buon's better-known folio printing of the same year: Conveniently portable, this smaller production still features => woodcut and typographic headpieces, and decorative capitals. Provenance: Front free endpaper with large ex libris label of Grace Rolleston.

Orazio BRUNI o BRUNETTI (attivo a Siena primi decenni del XVII secolo)
"Bulino, firmato in lastra nel cartiglio. Esemplare nell'unico stato conosciuto. Bellissima prova su carta vergata coeva con filigrana non leggibile, rifilata al rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. L'immagine raffigura in primo piano uomini di differente estrazione sociale, che brandendo armi e utensili vari si rivoltano contro la Morte che, davanti alla folla, sta per scoccare una freccia. A destra il Tempo, preceduto dalla Fama, sembra voler fuggire. Sullo sfondo animali diversi avanzano minacciosi contro una Morte anch'essa munita di arco e freccia. La stampa deriva in controparte da un bulino edito da Bolswert, a sua volta ripreso da un dipinto di David Vinckeboons del 1610 (Hollstein, Dutch, XXX-VII, p. 20, n. 10). La data 1609 quindi, riportata entro il cartiglio sopra la porta ad arco a sinistra, non corrisponde al vero. D'altro canto su questa stampa numerosi sono gli errori che nel tempo si sono accumulati. A cominciare dal Gori Gandellini che attribuisce a Francesco Merlini (Siena, attivo nel primo decennio del XVII secolo) un Trionfo della Morte da un suo dipinto. Per non parlare del Le Blanc e del Nagler che assegnano l'invenzione del bulino ad Andrea del Sarto. Romagnoli poi, bio¬grafo di artisti senesi, crede di ristabilire la verità affermando: ""accenna il Gan¬dellini che Francesco di Gio. Merlini nel 1609 incise da un suo dipinto il Trionfo della Morte. Erra però questo scrittore mentre il Trionfo della Morte fu disegna¬to dal Merlini ma inciso egregiamente da Orazio Brunetti"". Quello che non è mostrato chiaramente è la paternità dell'invenzione della … [Click Below for Full Description]

A Lyon: Chez Jean-Antoine Huguetan. First edition of the French translation, translated by Francois Bachou from the Gemmarum et lapidarum historia (1609) of the Flemish doctor and naturalist Anselm de Boodt. The work has 45 woodcut illustrations in text and retains the two folding plates showing the "Division of Precious & Common Stones." Retaining also the errata leaf, often missing.Contemporary red morocco. Richly gilt spine in five compartments, evidently 18th century title-piece in light brown morocco. Triple gilt fillet frame to covers and gilt fleurons to corners. Gilt dentelle surrounding the inside of covers, all edges gilt.Headpiece slightly rubbed, three corners a little bumped. One miniscule wormhole touching outside margin of one edge of first few gatherings, a few pages spotted, a very good copy.A major, pioneering and decisive work of gemology and mineralogy.

He relies not only on Classical sources (Pliny's Natural History, the Materia Medica of Dioscorides, Galen's Simple Medicines and Alberto Magno's De Mineralibus), but also the fruit of Renaissance research (by Cesalpin, Gessner, Scaliger, and so on), and spends some time explaining the virtues of each stone, be they medical, magical, or other...One will also find in this remarkable work practical information on the size of stones and how t … [Click Below for Full Description]

Jodocus HONDIUS (1563 - 1612)
1609. Attrattiva carta dell'Africa, pubblicata da Jodocus Hondius per le numerose edizioni del Gerardi Mercatoris Atlas sive Cosmographicae Meditationes, edite dal 1606 al 1630. La carta fa parte delle 37 nuove mappe incise da Hondius per aggiornare l'opera cartografica del Mercator. La geografia di questa mappa deriva da diverse fonti, prima fra tutte la mappa dell'Africa di Mercator del 1595, con aggiunte e modifiche, ma Hondius aveva anche accesso ai vari libri di esplorazione di Pigafetta, Ramusio e altri, integrati con le più recenti pubblicazioni olandesi, come ad esempio l'Itinerario di Van Linschoten. La mappa, dunque, costituisce una sorta di transizione tra la geografia di Ortelius e Mercator, e quella più moderna di Blaeu, Claesz e altri, dei primi decenni del '600. Questa mappa è conosciuta in un unico stato. Incisione in rame, finemente colorata a mano, in ottime condizioni. "This is an attractive map by Jodocus Hondius showing the continent of Africa. ""Hondius map of Africa is an important transitional map, bridging the earlier work of Ortelius, Mercator and others, with the more modern maps of Willem Blaeu in 1608, Claesz. in 1617, and others. The geography for this map is taken from a variety of sources. Some of the interior of Africa is based on Mercator's 1595 map of Africa, but numerous additions and changes have been made. Hondius had access to the books of exploration of Africanus, Pigafetta (based on the travel account of Duarte Lopez), Ramusion, De Barros, and others. These were supplemented by the more recent Dutch sources such as Van Linschoten's I … [Click Below for Full Description]

ARGENSOLA, Bartolomé Leonardo de.
Madrid: Alonso Martin, 1609. Small folio, pp. [12], 407 [i.e. 411]; eighteenth-century stiff parchment. A remarkable and very important association copy of this great book, by a figure whose circle of literary colleagues included both Cervantes and Lope de Vega; the 'essential work for the history of Spanish and Portuguese exploration in the East Indies' (Hill catalogue), this copy belonged to and was heavily and critically annotated throughout by Argensola's contemporary and rival author, the chronicler Antonio de Herrera y Tordesillas (1559-1625). While the book is a crucial source for the history of the Spanish in Asia and the East Indies, the combination of the text as printed with the extensive manuscript remarks by its important and critical reader are testament to a far-reaching debate about the writing of history and the role of the chronicler with regard to patriotic obligations.Herrera's distinctive hand here matches the annotations in a manuscript of Francisco Cervantes de Salazar's 'Crónica de la Nueva España' (MSS/2011 at the Biblioteca Nacional de España; see Richard L. Kagan, Clio and the Crown: The Politics of history in medieval and early modern Spain, Baltimore, 2009, pp. 175-6) as well as the specimen included in Mariano Cuesta Domingo's Antonio de Herrera y su Historia General del Mundo (Madrid, 2016, vol. I, p. lxxxix). Interestingly, Kagan remarks that 'the care and attention Herrera paid to Cervantes de Salazar's manuscript [showed] the manner in which he read and used other authors' to compile his own works. This assessment is borne out here, where H … [Click Below for Full Description]
