Khunrath, Henrico
Guilielmus Antonius, Hanau. 1609 edition (first published in Hamburg 1595 with just four circular plates). Folio. (310mm x 200mm). [24], 60, 222, [iii]pp. The book opens with 12 unpaginated leaves containing the illustrations. Rebacked in more recent (possibly early twentieth century) full green leather, five raised bands to spine with gilt. Gilt dentelles to turn-ins. Marbled endpapers (presumed to have been replaced during rebacking). Heinrich Khunrath (1560 - 1605) was a disciple of Paracelsus and practised medicine in Dresden, Magdeburg and Hamburg. Khunrath also met Queen Elizabeth's court 'Magician' Dr John Dee in Bremen in 1589. Khunrath took up a position in Prague with Rudolf II. This is his most famous publication and contains the well-known engraving "The First Stage of the Great Work" - sometimes known as the "Alchemist's Laboratory". The Amphitheatrum is an alchemical work combining Christianity and Qabalistic magic and is regarded as a bridge to Rosicrucianism. Illustrations and tables (in bound sequence): 1. Engraved Title Page with qabalistic symbols and two obelisks and vignette portrait of the author; 2. Portrait of the author with dog and various items associated with alchemy; 3.

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.

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.

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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

VAN SCHOEL, Henricus
Henricus van Schoel, 1609]. Lafreri school map of the Americas 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 date of publication by using an inscription on a map of Europe (also derived from Arnoldi) that appeared in the same atlas. Since then, four apparen … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bible. O.T. English. Douai. 1609-10.
Laurence Kellam, 1609. First edition of the first Catholic Old Testament in English -- editio princeps of the Douai (or Douay, or Doway) Old Testament, half of what is commonly known as the Douai-Rheims Bible. The New Testament first appeared at Rheims in 1582; at that time the Old Testament was said to be ready for printing, but its actual publication was delayed until 1609 due to lack of funds. Both portions were translated from the Latin Vulgate mainly by Gregory Martin (with the intensely controversial Old Testament notes done by Thomas Worthington), under the supervision of Cardinal William Allen at Douai, the center of English Catholicism in exile during Elizabeth's reimposition of Protestantism. This translation is important for all, not just Catholics, as an enduringly influential milestone in Bible history.=> One of the foundational works in any collection of Bibles and Testaments. Evidence of Readership / Provenance: Vol. I front free endpaper with early inked inscription: "Cloister of Nazareth"; pastedown with inscription in a different hand, reading "The holy Bible some pages cut out, (for modesty's sake) thro' ignorance yt. each word hear in [sic] is sacred, & too sacred for such, as finds thmselves unfit to read it."Vol. II front pastedown inscribed "Men have many faults / Women have but two / Nothing wright thay say / Nothing good they doo" [sic], signed by the Rev. Folkins of Derbyshire, dated MDCCCX; back pastedown with inked inscription of John Caldwell and pencilled inscription of Thomas R. Kilching.

BIBLE IN ENGLISH. (DOUAI OLD TESTAMENT)
Doway [Douai]: Printed by Laurence Kellam, 1609-10. FIRST EDITION IN ENGLISH OF THE ROMAN CATHOLIC OLD TESTAMENT. This is the first English version of the Catholic Old Testament, appearing more than two decades after the 1582 New Testament was published. The translation of the Old Testament had apparently been finished by the same persons who had produced the Rheims New Testament--Gregory Martin, William (afterwards Cardinal) Allen, and Richard Bristow--but, according to the preface of the 1582 New Testament, it sat unpublished "for lacke of good [financial] meanes to publish the whole in such sort as a worke of so great charge and importance requireth." This lack is explained in the preface to the 1609-10 Old Testament as due to "one general cause, [the Catholics'] poore estate in banishment." Darlow & Moule points out that the Rheims version of the Old Testament translation did undergo some revisions between the 1580s and the publication date of 1609-10, in order to conform to the authorised recension of the Vulgate published in 1592 under the authority of Clement VIII, a translation with which Cardinal Allen (1532-94) had assisted. The annotations in the 1609-10 version of the Old Testament are decidedly less controversial than in the 1582 New Testament. According to the DNB biography of translator Gregory Martin (ca. 1542-82), "The appearance of a Catholic Bible in English undermined traditional protestant criticism that the Roman church kept scripture out of the hands of the laity. Instead protestant theologians such as Thomas Cartwright, William Whitaker, and Willia … [Click Below for Full Description]
