In 1610 Schedel produced Calendarium, a manuscript containing 289 folios of colored drawings of flowers, arranged according to months of flowering. This format closely resembles that of Basil Besler’s famous Hortus Eystettensis (1613), which was painted and engraved by a skilled team of Germans including Sebastian Schedel himself.

        Histoire des derniers troubles de France); Edicts et Articles accordez par le Roy Henry IIII. pour la reunion de ses subjets. Avec les articles de la Paix accordez entre les Rois de France & d`Espagne, le deuxiemme May mil cinq cents nonante huit.,

      Lyon, 1610 [Tit. des 5. Teils der Histoire] - 1611 (Edicts. Dernière ed.) - 2 Bde. in 1 Bd. geb, wobei der 1. Bd. aus 5 Teilen (Büchern) besteht und der 5. Teil ein eigenes Titelbl. enthält. Bd. 1/Tl.: 1-4: 2 (v. 4) Bll., (Titelbl. fehlt, durch Kopie auf altem Papier ergänzt), 168 (3), 10 Bll.; Tl. 5: Tit., 128 S. Mit Titelvign.; Bd. 2: Titelbl., 1 Bl., 141 (2), 55 (1) S. Mit Titelvign. Ldr. d. Zt. m. Rückengoldpräg. Erstes Titelbl. fehlt. (Durch Kopie auf altem Papier ergänzt). Auch sind weitere Bll. am Ende des 5. Teils der "Histoire" (nach S. 128) mit fortfahrender Paginierung von derselben Hand eingefügt worden (der Hinweis dazu steht bereits am Vorsatzbl. d. 1. 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.

        Heilige Familie mit der Heiligen Elisabeth und Johannes als Kind.

      . Radierung, nach G.A. Sirani (1610-1670), auf Bütten. 26,7:21,7 cm. Mit minimalem Rändchen um die Umfassungslinie. Literatur: Bartsch 8; Nagler 8, mit dem Namen des G.A. Sirani.. Die bereits im Alter von 27 Jahren verstorbene Malerin und Kupferstecherin wurde, wie ihre beiden Schwestern, von ihrem Vater G.A. Sirani (1610-1670), einem der bedeutendsten Maler seiner Zeit, ausgebildet und arbeitete dann in dessen Werkstatt. Darüber hinaus orientierte sie sich am Spätwerk Guido Renis (1575-1642). Bald zählte sie zu den prominentesten Künstlern Bolognas und konnte auch Kunden außerhalb ihrer Heimatstadt und Italiens gewinnen. Sie gründete in Bologna eine "weibliche Akademie" nur für Frauen, um den Mißstand, da diese nicht an den offiziellen Kunstakademien studieren durften, zu beheben. Sirani hinterließ etwa 170 Werke, überwiegend Altargemälde und Zeichnungen, häufig in kleinem Format. "Trotz widersprüchlicher Auffassungen über das Wesen der Frau ist Elisabetta Sirani von ihren Zeitgenossen - von Künstlern ebenso wie von hochgestellten Auftraggebern und Sammlern - bewundert und verehrt worden. Ihr Atelier muß geistiger und geselliger Mittelpunkt Bolognas gewesen sein. Die Künstlerin stand auch in Verbindung mit Musikern und Literaten ihrer Zeit, sie selbst war eine geachtete Harfinistin und Lyrikerin." (zit aus: Ausst. Katalog: Das verborgene Museum I. Dokumentation der Kunst von Frauen in Berliner öffentlichen Sammlungen, Berlin 1987, S. 67).

A very good clean tight copy of the political works of Lipsius. Justus Lipsius (1547 - 1606) was a renowned Flemish scholar, a philologist and humanist. He taught at the universities in Jena, Leiden and Leuven and was the founding father of Neostoicism, a key component of European thought in the late sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. His political ideas about the ideal citizen - a man that acts according to reason, is answerable to himself, is in control of his emotions, and is ready to fight - found wide acceptance in the turbulent times of the Reformation. This Lipsian view, translated to politics, entails rationalisation of the state and its apparatus of government, autocratic rule by the prince, discipline dispensed to subjects, and strong military defence. In the Politicorum which was written at Leiden where he was Professor of History he wrote that a government should recognise only one religion, and extirpate dissent by fire and sword.

Very early edition 1610 (first published in Frankfurt in 1608), 2 parts in 1 volume, the tract "De signaturis rerum internis," has a separate half - title page and pagination, but the register is consecutive throughout. Latin text, small 8vo, approximately 160 x 100 mm, 6¼ x 23¾ inches, engraved device of Sebastian Gryphius (griffin) on first title page with motto "Virtute Duce", no printer named, a few head - and tailpieces and decorated initials, 2 large woodcuts (pages 319 and 323), and lists of alchemical signs and symbols on KK8 - LL1, pages:(40), 1 - 364, (60); (14), 1 - 92, (36), collation: ¶ - ¶¶8, ¶¶¶4, A - MM8, NN4 ( - NN4 which is a blank), bound in full modern calf, raised bands to spine, gilt titled black morocco label, top edges brown, new endpapers.

There is another edition printed in Geneva in 1610 which has the same title page as ours with the Gryphius device but underneath Coloniae Allobrogum states "excudebat Paulus Marcellus" with no mention of Officina Fabriana. Otherwise the text is printed as ours. Oswald Croll [c. 1560 - 1609] was a professor of medicine and alchemy at the University of Marburg in Hesse, Germany. A strong proponent of alchemy and of using chemistry in medicine, he attempted to influence thinkers of his day towards viewing chemistry and alchemy as two separate fields. He published one volume in 1609, the year of his death, containing two books "Basilica Chymica" and "De signatura rerum" plus a long preface in which he expounds the ideas of Paracelsus to whom he was devoted. Basilica Chymica is a comprehensive summary of his researches, methods of preparation, and studies into chemical medicine or iatrochemistry. He pushes for the understanding and recognition of chemical compounds and the medicinal value of herbs and other processes first advanced by Paracelsus. It also discussed matters such as compound remedies, chemical organisation and acted as an introduction to chemistry in later years. The Tractatus novus de signaturis covered the relation of alchemy and chemistry to other fields of science, especially botany, suggesting the use of the doctrine of signatures to determine the medical property of plants.
