        Li quatro ordeni delle Terre di Germania". Manuscript by an unknown hand.

      N. p. o. d., [Italy, c. 1570-1610]. - ½ folio leaf (divided vertically), written on one side. Elegantly disposed manuscript list of a series of princes and places in the Holy Roman Empire, written in a fine late 16th-century italic hand, supplemented by a contemporary hand. - Curious listing of names of places and potentates in 'Germany' (actually, within the Holy Roman Empire, since the Duke of Lorraine and the Count of Savoy are included), enumerating every class by fours - e. g. four dukes, four landgraves, four cities, four vicars etc. Evidently either a jeu d'esprit or perhaps for a literary purpose, the piece is without any identification. Including the additions in another hand, there are 12 groups of four in all (a total of 48), enough for a deck of playing cards. In addition, the second hand has inserted digits from 1 to 12 randomly beside each group. Could this be the plan for a proposed pictorial set of cards? - Slightly browned and with small damages to edges.

      London: , 1610. [Cheshire] Size: 290 × 340 mm. Copperplate engraving with hand colour. Map has been cleaned, and partially re-margined, but generally in good condition. A wonderful county map of Cheshire from William Camden's historic and important atlas 'Britannia'; first published in 1607. Originally, in 1586, Camden's work was a detailed historical and topographical description of Britain. Hole & Kip added their maps to this work in 1607. The maps are heavily based on the earlier work by the Elizabethan cartographer Christopher Saxton. This map comes from the second edition, printed only 3 years later. Interesting embellishments add and complement this very early county map.

        Historia della Guerra Sacra di Gierusalemme. Della Terra di Promissione, e Quasi di Tutta La Soria Ricuperata da Christiani: Raccolta in XXIII. Libri, da Guglielmo Arcivescovo di Tiro & Gran Cancelieri del Regno di Gierusalemme la Qual Continua Ottanta Quattro anni per ordine, fin'al Regno di Baldoino IIII. Tradotta in Lingua Italiana da M. Gioseppe Horologgi

      Antonio Pinelli, Venetia 1610 - 8, [8], 615 pp. 8vo, 8.25 by 6.25 inches, 21 by 16 cm. Considered one of the most significant pieces of literature from the Middle Ages and a seminal work of literature written in the French language. Also a milestone in historiography as the most important account of the first and second crusades and especially the latter, for which William of Tyre was a contemporary witness. The author produced this work at the request of Almaric I in about 1170 and he continued to work on it until 1183. The work was indeed accepted as unquestioned fact for many centuries and only recently have biases been discerned owing from William's entanglement in the political disputes of the day.

L'oeuvre sera ensuite traduite en latin en 1613. Un titre-frontispice figurant le Panthéon d'Hadrien brisé et divers personnages. Dédié à Henri IV. Plein Parchemin d'époque. Dos lisse avec titre à la plume rouge. Un morceau de Parchemin manque sur le dos (1,5x2,5cm) et sur le plat inférieur (3x1cm). Lacets encore présents, mais courts. Première page de garde détachée. A partir de la p. 222, une galerie de vers d'1cm de hauteur au milieu du texte, cette galerie devenant deux trous plus ou moins larges, puis évoluant de manière plus importante sur l'index (3cm). Il manque certaines coutures au dos reliant les cahiers de l'ouvrage, qui se tient moins bien. A partie de la lecture d'un livre Protestant, L'Idolâtrie papistique (lui même écrit en réponse à un premier livre de Richeome, l'Idolatrie huguenote) le Jésuite Louis Richeome démontre que l'hérésie protestant est non seulement iconoclaste et idolâtre, mais également adoratrice de la lune et Vénus, du Diable et autres divinités païennes, telle que Saturne. Richeome fut très apprécié de son temps comme polémiste et écrivain, on le surnomma le Cicéron français, il n'eut de cesse de défendre les Jésuites contre les attaques de toutes parts, et de faire le siège de Henri IV et de se placer sous sa protection dans tous ses livres. On le considère aujourd'hui comme l'un des précurseurs de l'humanisme dévot, incarné par François de Sales. (24) 399pp. (1bc) (27) (1bc). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Amsterdam: La vefue de Cornille Nicolas, 1610.. [2],61,[1]pp., including twenty-five in-text engravings and two full-page maps. Folio. Full antique calf, spine ornately gilt, leather label. Contemporary inscription on titlepage. Very minor toning and soiling. A few leaves trimmed a bit close. Very good. Second French edition, following the first French printing of 1602. Van Noort, a former innkeeper in Rotterdam sponsored by a group of Dutch merchants, accomplished the fourth circumnavigation of the globe after Magellan, Drake, and Cavendish. He was the first Dutch explorer to do so, making the trip from 1598 to 1601. The voyage was particularly arduous. Half the crew mutinied, his ships were constantly harassed, and most of those that didn't mutiny perished from disease. He returned to Holland "with only one battered ship and eight crew left (although some accounts suggest that forty-five crew survived). His voyage contributed little to the geographical knowledge of the time but had some effect in opening the way to the establishment of the Dutch in the East Indies...Van Noort's achievement, however, captured the imagination of his countrymen, and the published accounts sold well, the first appearing only eighteen days after his return. A more complete edition appeared later that year, followed by two amended editions in 1602" (Howgego). HOWGEGO N37. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 610/79. SABIN 55438. BORBA DE MORAES II:103. TIELE 806.

        Britain, or A chorographicall description of the most flourishing kingdomes, England, Scotland, and Ireland, and the Ilands adioyning, out of the depth of Antiquitie: beautified with mappes of the severall shires of England: vvritten first in Latine by William Camden Clarenceux K. of A. Translated newly into English by Philémon Holland Doctour in Physick: finally, revised, amended, and enlarged with sundry additions by the said author

      London: George Bishop & John Norton, 1610 - First edition in English of one of the great achievements of English scholarship, the first comprehensive topographical survey of Great Britian, and a book of the greatest importance to the develpment of the nation's self image. Camden's work first appeared in Latin in 1586 in a thick octavo volume dedicated to Lord Burghley: "It received immediate recognition - and its successive, enlarged editions of 1587, 1590, 1594, 1600 (dedicated to Queen Elizabeth) and 1607 (dedicated to King James) and its English translation of 1610 by Philemon Holland attest to its popularity - Throughout the decades after its first appearance Camden continued to revise the text and experiment with the work's format and apparatus, and he worked closely with Holland on the 1610 translation. In spite of the author's collaboration, however, the translation is often inaccurate and takes liberties with the material, and for this reason is regarded as inferior to Edmund Gibson's translation of 1695. By 1607, the year of its last Latin edition in Camden's lifetime, published in folio and containing an index, maps by Saxton and Norden, and engravings of coins, monuments, and topographical sites, it had evolved into an impressive and editorially sophisticated work of scholarship" (Oxford DNB) First edition in English. Folio. Additional engraved title-page ("BRITANNIA -"), letterpress title-page with woodcut device and ornament, 8 full-page engravings of coins in the text, numerous text illustrations, and 55 (of 57) engraved maps (all but 2 double-page), engraved by Willem Kip and William Hole after Christopher Saxton and John Norden. Lacking maps of Somersetshire and Durham.

      [xvii]+548+[16] pages. Quarto (11 1/4" x 8 1/4") bound in old velum with original string ties still in place. From the library of George M Foster. 1st edition.Antonio de Solís y Ribadeneyra (1610 - April 19, 1686), Spanish dramatist and historian, was born at Alcalá de Henares (less probably, Plasencia). He studied law at Salamanca, where he produced a comedy entitled Amor y obligación, which was acted in 1627. He became secretary to the count of Oropesa, and in 1654 he was appointed secretary of state as well as private secretary to Philip IV. Later he obtained the lucrative post of chronicler of the Indies, and, on taking orders in 1671 severed his connexion with the stage. He died at Madrid on the 19th of April 1686. Of his ten extant plays, two have some place in the history of the drama. El Antor al use was adapted by Scarron and again by Thomas Corneille as L'Amour de la mode, while La Gitanilla de Madrid, itself founded on the novela of Cervantes, has been utilized directly or indirectly by PA Wolff, Victor Hugo and Longfellow. The titles of the remaining seven are Triunfos de amor y fortuna, Eurídice y Orfeo, El Alcetzar del secrete, Las Amazonas, El doctor Carlino, Un bobo hace ciento, and Amparar el enemigo. Amor y obligación survives in a manuscript at the Biblioteca Nacional. The Historia de la conquista de México, población y progresos de la América septentrional, conocida por el nombre de Nueva España, covering the three years between the appointment of Cortés to command the invading force and the fall of the city, deservedly ranks as a Spanish prose classic. It was published in 1684; an English translation by Townshend appeared in 1724.George McClelland Foster, Jr born in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, on October 9, 1913, died on May 18, 2006, at his home in the hills above the campus of the University of California, Berkeley, where he served as a professor from 1953 to his retirement in 1979, when he became professor emeritus. His contributions to anthropological theory and practice still challenge us; in more than 300 publications, his writings encompass a wide diversity of topics, including acculturation, long-term fieldwork, peasant economies, pottery making, public health, social structure, symbolic systems, technological change, theories of illness and wellness, humoral medicine in Latin America, and worldview. The quantity, quality, and long-term value of his scholarly work led to his election to the National Academy of Sciences in 1976. Virtually all of his major publications have been reprinted and/or translated. Provenance from the executor of Foster's library laid in.Condition:Lacks Foster stamp and acquiry date, soiled, extremity wear, repair to title verso, page 77 with marginal tear else a very good.

La primera, que ofrecemos completa, fue a cargo de Diego de Silva (1564-1630), duque de Francavilla y conde de Salinas y Ribadeo. Hijo de la princesa de Éboli, fue nombrado capitán general de la frontera de Zamora, de las Costas de Andalucía y veedor de Hacienda en Portugal hasta convertirse en virrey en Lisboa en 1615 y representar a Felipe IV en la misma ciudad seis años después y dirigir sus ejércitos. Siempre celoso –algunos opinan que en exceso– de sus prerrogativas, no es de extrañar que defendiera con ardor sus privilegios nobiliarios. En este sentido, Trevor J. Dadson (Nuevos datos para la biografía de Don Diego de Silva y Mendoza, Conde de Salinas, en Criticón, núm. 31, Toulouse, 1985, pp. 59-84) recoge que:" Ahora, si había algo en que Salinas no se dejaba vencer por nadie ni por nada era en lo que atañía a sus privilegios, preeminencias, y derechos. En esta cuestión era un verdadero experto, con muchos años de experiencia de pleitos con casi toda su familia sobre la posesión y el usufructo de diversos estados y mayorazgos" Y sigue: "Incluso llegó a publicar un libro titulado Información en derecho por Don Diego de Silua Duque de Francauila, Conde de Salinas y Riuadeo sobre el Estado de Cifuentes, Madrid, Alonso Martín, 1610" que es el que aquí ofrecemos. De hecho, Silva lleva años en litigio con su hermano y su sobrino sobre la posesión y el usufructo de los estados de Francavilla, Pastrana y Cifuentes con el objetivo de asegurar, antes de su marcha a Lisboa, que su ausencia no fuera aprovechada para vencerle en los tribunales. El hecho de numerar cada obra o parte de obra como "Memorial 1, 2, etc." indica que seguramente el volumen fue empleado como obra de consulta en temas de derecho sucesorio y primogenitura. Así lo certificaría la página manuscrita que se encuentra antes de la portada de la primera obra y que contiene, en catalán, una suerte de índice de lo contenido en el libro, siguiendo la división en "memoriales" que precede a cada apartado. derecho civil, derecho sucesorio, primogenitura.

        I Carichi Militari.

      appressio Ioachimo Trognesio,, in Anversa, 1610 - In-4° (263x170mm), pp. (14), 272, (20) di indice, errata e privilegio, legatura coeva p. pergamena con unghie. Tagli azzurri. Frontespizio con titolo entro ricca bordura figurata incisa su rame a motivi militari. Dedica a stampa ad Alberto Arciduca d'Austria, Duca di Borgogna e di Brabante. Testatine e capilettera figurati incisi su legno. 5 tavv. calcografiche ripiegate f.t. di disposizioni e schieramenti militari, accampamenti, assalti a fortezze, manovre. Antica firma in parte cassata al frontespizio. L'opera è preceduta da un sonetto in volgare e da un epigramma latino del letterato fiorentino Girolamo Fortini. Lavori di tarlo mai toccanti il testo al margine inferiore e al margine interno delle ultime cc. di indice; alcune bruniture ininfluenti. Bell'esemplare. Prima edizione. "A Napoli il Brancaccio prese a scrivere un trattato di arte militare, dal titolo Carichi militari o Fucina di Marte, nel quale trattò dei compiti che spettano a ciascun grado della milizia, dal soldato sino al maestro di campo generale, concludendo con una esposizione dei doveri del principe nei riguardi del suo esercito. L'opera, dedicata all'arciduca Alberto d'Asburgo, non ha maggiore interesse delle molte altre simili trattazioni del tempo, anche se in essa si avverte la già lunga ed intensa esperienza militare del Brancaccio; importanti sono alcuni cenni del Brancaccio ai "campi trincerati". Il trattato ebbe un buon successo, contandosene in un trentennio ben tre edizioni, ad Anversa nel 1610, a Milano nel 1620 ed a Venezia nel 1641" (G. De Caro in Diz. Biogr. d. Italiani). Il Brancaccio (Napoli, 1560 circa-Perpignano, 1637), Marchese di Montesilvano, fu uomo d'armi e scrittore militare. Per il valore dimostrato sui campi di battaglia di Lombardia e di Fiandra ebbe il comando delle truppe genovesi nella guerra contro i Savoia e la Francia nel 1626 e poi la nomina a maestro di campo generale delle milizie spagnole in Fiandra. La presente è la sua opera più celebre e significativa. Cockle, 609. Brunet, I,1201. Graesse, I, 519. Manzi, 106. D'Ayala, I, p. 10. Vinciana, 1418. Olschki, Choix, 10032.

Teils), welche die (schon damals!) fehlenden Texteile vom Epitre handschriftlich wiedergeben. Adams M-901 (EA. v. 1594) - Die "Histoire des derniers troubles" beginnt mit der Herrschaft der Tres-Chrestiens Roys (Francois I, Henry II, Francois II .) und reicht bis zum Friedensvertrag von Veruins unter Heinrich IV. Den Edicts (alle von Heinrich IV erlassen) folgt Histoire des guerres entre les deux maisons de France et d`Espagne, die mit dem Vertrag von Veruins und dem Tod Philippes II aus Spanien 1598 endeten. Die Erstausgabe des damals schon in dieser Gestalt verfassten Werkes erschien in Lyon 1594-95. Laut Graesse ist der 5. Teil der "Histoire" nicht von Mathieu (vgl. Graesse IV, 443). Hauser schreibt hingegen, daß es zahlreiche nicht autorisierte Eingriffe fremder Hand gab (vgl. Hauser 1448). In einem handschriftlichen Vermerk (von alter Hand) auf eingefügten Vorsatzbll. wird vorl. Buch Michel HURAULT de l`Hospital zugeschrieben, einem Enkel des Chanceliers Michel de l`Hospital von Belesbat und Faÿ, der ihm seine Bibliothek vererbte. Die Verbindung zwischen Henri IV und dem Hause Belesbat ist belegt durch seine häufigen Besuche (die noch zu Navarras Zeiten begannen), und die nicht ohne einen gewissen Einfluß der schönen Henriette d’Entragues standen. Dies könnte zu der Annahme führen, Hurault de l`Hospital hätte unter Pseudonym geschrieben. Auch Hauser belegt die Freundschaft zwischen Pierre Mathieu (1563-1621) und Heinrich IV, zu dessen Historiographen er 1594 ernannt wurde. Die im Buch enthaltenen handschriftlichen Hinweise auf Michel HURAULT de l`Hospital geben erneut ein Rätsel über die Autorenschaft dieses nicht uninteressanten Werkes auf.

      Amsterdam: Théodore Pierre, 1610. - Six engraved maps on eight sheets (two double- page, two folding, two on two folding sheets), fifty-eight engraved in-text illustrations. Folio. Expertly bound to style in old vellum. Five illustrations shaved into image area; occasional expert restoration. Very good. In a half black morocco folding box. Very rare first edition in French of the great classic of travel literature. "When Linschoten returned from Goa to his home in the Netherlands, he did so at a time when the people of northern Europe and particularly his countrymen were especially interested in what he had to report concerning the trading activities of the Portuguese in the East. He had lived in Goa for six years from 1583, and while he never ventured far from the Portuguese capital, he did have an 'avaricious thirst for knowledge which enabled him to get detailed information of land and sea as far afield as the Spice Islands and China'" - Penrose. But his most important and far-reaching observations concerned the gradual decline of Portuguese power in the East and her ability to protect her trade routes and monopolies. This, together with the trading possibilities he detailed, encouraged a series of Dutch, French and English fleets to set sail for the Spice Islands and beyond to China and Japan. An important work that served not only as a valuable record, but also as a catalyst for change in the balance of power amongst European trading nations in the east. This first edition in French is translated from the Latin edition of Linschoten published in parts II-IV of De Bry's PETIT VOYAGES in 1599 and 1601 (which also contained other narratives). The illustrations are printed from exactly the same plates as used in De Bry, and other aspects conform with the text as it appears in the PETIT VOYAGES. This includes the commentary on Linschoten's text by Bernard Paludanus, first appearing in the De Bry edition, and only otherwise appearing here. It is particularly useful for notations on botany and food. It has generally been accepted that this edition was actually printed in Frankfurt rather than Amsterdam, despite the imprint. probably by the same printer who printed De Bry's work (see Tiele 685). There are two issues of the first edition in French published in 1610: one by H. Laurenszoon, and one by Pierre (as here). It would have made sense for De Bry to have done this; the PETIT VOYAGES appeared only in Latin and German, but the demand for Linschoten made it worthwhile to publish separately in French. Because of De Bry's strong anti-Catholicism, he could not reach the french market directly, but did it by using the Dutch publishers as intermediaries. The differing imprints reinforce this, suggesting the Laurenszoon and Pierre were really publishers, not printers, of the work. One of the most important early editions of Linschoten, the first to appear in French, and indicative of the complex printing and publishing relationships of the time.

        Of the Citie of God: With the Learned Comments of Jo. Lod. Vives.

      George Eld, London 1610 - First English edition of the author's monumental work. Folio, contemporary full brown calf. Front and rear panels double-ruled in gilt, gilt floral cornerpieces, spine double-ruled in gilt. Binding shows some wear with some ink markings and notations. Overall a very good copy of this scarce and important work, rare in contemporary calf. One of the great cornerstones in the history of Christian thought, The City of God is vital to an understanding of modern Western society and how it came into being. Begun in A.D. 413, the book's initial purpose was to refute the charge that Christianity was to blame for the fall of Rome (which had occurred just three years earlier). Indeed, Augustine produced a wealth of evidence to prove that paganism bore within itself the seeds of its own destruction. However, over the next thirteen years that it took to complete the work, the brilliant ecclesiastic proceeded to his larger theme: a cosmic interpretation of history in terms of the struggle between good and evil. By means of his contrast of the earthly and heavenly cities--the one pagan, self-centered, and contemptuous of God and the other devout, God-centered, and in search of grace--Augustine explored and interpreted human history in relation to eternity.

        Most Approved and Long experienced Water-Workes London

      George Eld. 1610 - FIRST EDITION 4to. ff. [70] (A2, B-S4), (one recorded copy has a folding plate). Roman and Italic letter, side-notes, head- and tail-pieces, woodcut initials. T.p. and last a little dusty and slightly foxed, minor wormhole and dampstain to upper and lower corners of first 30 ll. light age browning, with occasional oil splashes and light water stain to final gatherings, generally good and well-margined copy C19 English calf gilt, some wear to joints, Modern bookplate on front pastedown, a.e.g. FIRST AND ONLY EDITION of the FIRST ENGLISH WORK ON CROP IRRIGATION, prefaced by ten entertaining poems in honour of the author comprising the first 22 pp. of the volume, written by i.a. the lawyer and MP Thomas Rant, a “John Strangwage”, and Robert Corbet thought to be Richard Corbet, bishop of Oxford and Norwich famed for very merrily locking himself in his own wine-cellar. The first and longest “Panegyricke” compares Vaughan to King David, King Arthur, and places him among the pantheon of pagan gods. It was written by the “very voluminous and somewhat tedious” (DNB) John Davies of Hereford, poet and writing-master who taught many pupils from noble families and courted the patronage of Mary Sidney, Countess of Pembroke, her brother the Earl, Robert Sidney, and Lucy, Countess of Bedford. Davies was best known for his “Scourge of Folly”, a collection of epigrams satirising popular writers of the day including Shakespeare, Jonson, and Nashe. Also included is a poem by Davies’ son, Sylvanus. 

The author's introduction to the Earl of Pembroke takes up almost half of the volume. Before describing the workings of his system, Vaughan’s introduction presents a vision for a better society, centered on his successful waterworks: where one "famous preacher shall be maintaind", one master will command each industry with as many apprentices as he needs, and a very large dinner table will be stocked with a never-ending feast for all. Vaughan's aim is to invigorate the local economy and put some 500 of his neighbours back to work by using the profits from his surplus crops, and the crops themselves, to create jobs for farmers, millers, brewers, bakers, scythe and sickle-makers, mechanics, shepherds, swineherds, butchers, wool-makers and dyers - his reckoning in total includes no less than (“hold breath” he writes as the list escalates) 42 occupations to choose from.

In “The Manner of My Drownings” Vaughan describes first how he once noticed the greener grass on the one side of his property, well-watered because it was below a molehill that channeled rainwater its way, and then how he spent 20 years perfecting a method of irrigation from the observation. He instructs as to the the season and length of time to “drowne the Grounds”, the type of trenches to be dug depending on the terrain, and other useful advice, including how to keep moles out of the waterworks. Perhaps connecting the practical advice with his ideal society, the work concludes with a promissory note - “Be it knowne vnto all men by these presents, that I Rowland Vaughan of New-court in the County of Hereford Esquire, do acknowledge my selfe to owe and stand duly indebted vnto.” - with blank space for the name, location, and sum of money given. Although there is no specific mention in the introduction, Vaughan does spend several pages asking the Earl of Pembroke and other local aristocracy for money, arguing against the immorality of usury and interest rates.

First French edition of a biography originally published in Latin at Antwerp in 1610, telling of the life of the Jesuit Gaspar Berse (1515-1553), who preached in Ormuz at the mouth of the Persian Gulf and Goa in India. Berse was born in Goes on the island of Walcheren in Zeeland, the Netherlands. After his studies in Louvain he went to Coimbra in 1546 where he entered the Jesuit order. In 1548 he was sent to the island of Ormuz and in 1551 to Goa where the well-known François Xavier, who would soon depart for Japan, appointed him director of the St. Paul's College of Goa and entrusted him with the provincialate of the Indian Mission. He died in Goa on 6 October 1553.With engraved armorial bookplate of John Drummond of Logy Almond on back of title-page. In very good condition. The cords were never attached to the vellum cover and the endleaves never pasted down, so that the cover is held on by the headbands laced through at the hinges.
