        La Practique de Masuer,. Ancien jurisconsulte et practicien de France. Mise en François par Antoine Fontanon. Septième & dernière édition.

      Lyon, Poyet, 1610, (1611). - fort volume petit in-8, 725pp. (la pagination passe par erreur de 398 à 339) -22f.n.ch. (tables). Reliure de l'époque vélin ivoire souple, titre calligraphié au dos. Le titre porte la date de 1610, le colophon donne la date du 10 septembre 1611. - Jean Mazuer (ou Masuer), éminent jurisconsulte, serait né en Auvergne vers la fin du XIV° siècle. Les sources divergent quant au lieu et à la date. Toujours est il qu'il rédigea sa Practica forensis Galliæ à Riom, au barreau de la sénéchaussée, au début du XV° siècle. L'intérêt de ce recueil important dépasse le domaine des règles de la Procédure (que l'on appelait alors le Style du Palais), pour aborder aussi le droit et la procédure. Méplain précise que l'ouvrage fut composé au point de vue du droit écrit et des coutumes de la province d'Auvergne, parce que Masuer l'écrivait à Riom où le retenait sa dignité de Chancelier des ducs d'Auvergne. Les usages du Bourbonnais y sont aussi fréquemment rapportés, l'auteur ayant aussi tenu la charge d'avocat à la sénéchaussée de cette province. En constatant aussi les emprunts nombreux que la coutume avait fait au droit romain, le savant élargit la portée de son travail ". qui, bien qu'il semble écrit plus spécialement pour l'utilité de ces deux provinces, il devint bientôt le manuel obligé des jurisconsultes de tout le royaume" (Méplain, p. 86, qui cite aussi les éloges d'Étienne Pasquier et de Chabrol). C'est un autre auvergnat, Antoine Fontanon, qui traduisit en français la Practica Forensis, en 1592. (Méplain, les Jurisconsultes de l'ancien Bourbonnais, pp. 84 à 86 - J. Girard, Hommes et femmes célèbres. d'Auvergne, du Bourbonnais. pp. 690 (Masuer) et 495 (Fontanon)). - Reliure déboîtée, papier jauni, plus fortement pour quelques cahiers, mouillure dans la partie supérieure tout au long du volume.

        Asiae Tabula Recens Emendata.

      Artist: Wit de Frederick ( - 1698) Amsterdam; issued in: Amsterdam; date: ca 1680 1610 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 49 x 57; - description: Map shows total Asia with beautiful cartouche showing a camel , cockatoos and natives; -vita of the artist: Frederik de Wit (1610 ? 1698) His Atlas began to appear around 1662 and by 1671 included anywhere from 17 to 151 maps each. In the 1690s he began to use a new title page "Atlas Maior" but continued to use his old title page. His atlas of the Low Countries first published in 1667,was named Nieuw Kaertboeck van de XVII Nederlandse Provinciën and contained 14 to 25 maps. Frederik de Wit quickly expanded upon his first small folio atlas which contained mostly maps printed from plates that he had acquired, to an atlas with 27 maps engraved by or for him. By 1671 he was publishing a large folio atlas with as many as 100 maps. Smaller atlases of 17 or 27 or 51 maps could still be purchased and by the mid-1670s an atlas of as many as 151 maps and charts could be purchased from his shop. In ca.1675 De Wit released a new nautical atlas. The charts in this atlas replaced the earlier charts from 1664 that are known today in only four bound examples and a few loose copies. De Wit?s new charts were sold in a chart book and as part of his atlases. De Wit published no fewer than 158 land maps and 43 charts on separate folio sheets.In 1695 Frederik de Wit began to publish a town atlas of the Netherlands after he acquired a large number of city plans at the auction of the famous Blaeu publishing firm?s printing plates.Dating Frederik de Wit atlases is considered difficult because usually no dates were recorded on the maps and their dates of publication extended over many years.

        Sibylla Tryg-Andriana seu de Virginitate, Virginum Statu & Jure Tractatus ... [Bound with] Linea Amoris, sive Commentarius ..

      Frankfurt, Becker [the printer], 1610 and 1610 [both first editions]. Duodecimo, 282 (last blank), [6] (index) and 148, [7] (index) pages. Contemporary vellum with early manuscript title in ink on the spine; front flyleaf a little creased and chipped; paper lightly toned around the edges; an excellent copy. The first editions of much-reprinted works on the rights and duties of women. The first volume addresses virginity, the second adultery, and the contents are drawn in the main from classical and theological writings (with each volume containing an index of sources). With the armorial bookplate of J[ohn] Walter Tyas (1833-1903), linguist, bibliophile and university registrar; the following details of his interesting life are gleaned from the Australian Dictionary of Biography. After studying law and working on the staff of 'The Times', he emigrated to South Australia in 1868. After a period in business in Adelaide, he was active in the pearl-shell industry on the north coast of Australia (and beyond) for three years. In 1873 he returned to England, and for some years 'roved the Continent collecting bric-à-brac, pieces of art and books on antiquity. In 1878 he was appointed Reuter's agent in Adelaide arriving there on 18 September, and in 1882 became registrar of the University of Adelaide. Tyas also acted as examiner in modern languages, especially in French. A natural conversationalist and an entertaining host, he was envied for his library and his knowledge of literature'.

The Bul[l]a de la santa Cruzada granted by the Pope was a bull granting indulgences to those who fight against the infidel or contribute to the costs of the struggle ( the 'tesoro de la Iglesia militante'). It was first granted to the Spanish monarch in 1509, and was thereafter renewed and its scope enlarged by successive popes. The work gives details of the origins, development and organisation of this, how it was to be preached, how the indulgences were to be offered, the spiritual and financial administration of all connected with the Bulla, together with details of where and how the various editions of the bull were to be produced throughout the Spanish dominions, and to which citieds and towns various 'cedulas' etc. were to be sent, and how worded. There are in part 1 long lists of administrative centres in all of Spanish America, the Filippines etc. The section dealing with the printing of the Bullas is particularly interesting: in Spain they were to be printed in Toledo in the Dominicans monastery of S.Peter the Martyr, and at Valladolid in the monastery of Our Lady de Prado, where Rodrigo Calderon was to be in charge; for the Indies at Seville at the Hieronymite monastery of S.Lorenço, although the actual printing was to be carried out at the Monasterio de Buenavista; for Sicily the press was that at the Jesuit College in Palermo, and the costs were to be born by the Society of Jesus. Details of responsibilities for obtaining type and paper are given- for the printing at Valladolid, Genoa paper is specified 'or some other of equal quality and whiteness'. An account if given (in a royal instruction dated 15 June 1584) of the regulations governing S.Peter's, which clearly apply also to Valladolid: printing was strictly under the control of the monasteries, the prior,and ultimately the Dominican authorities, and precise details are given for the nature of the rooms for printing ang storage, the nature of the locks and keys and the control and surveillance of them, the actual printers and those who assist them (it is clear that the printers come from outside the cloister, and they are forbidden to carry swords or arms (314.22)); when type becomes worn and needs to be replaced, this has tio be done inside the monastery and at a controlled cost, and the matrices and punches are to be kept in the archives of the monastery; the bulls are to be printed well on good paper and ink, and a careful record is to be kept of their production and distribution. Similar (but shorter) regulations are also given for the Emprenta de Sicilia, where, for example (no. 4, cf.no. 12 of the Toledo instrucitons) details are given for very careful control and registration of delivery and release of paper to the printers. The title-page has an engraving which incorporates cartographic, heraldic, scripturaland historical motifs, at the mid centre being the cross and the message given to the emperor Constantine 'In hoc signo vinces'. Perez de Lara was, as he tells us in the preface, a Spanish lawyer. He worked in the royal courts at Lima,and published in 1608 in Madrid De anniversariis et capellanis, a work on canon law (reprinted 4 times) and an interesting work on the legal status of the very young and the old , Valladolid, 1629 (once reprinted) This work was reprinted by itself in Lyons (P.Chevalier, 1672;BNF & ONB) and three times - in 1733 (Devillle & Chalmette) and 1757 (de Tournes), and 1768 in Madrid (A.Perez de Soto) - as part of Opera omnia). Palau 221236;Medina (BHA) 561; Alden 610/83. Other than the 5 copies listed by Alden, we have located copies at Barcelona (2) & Madrid BN (1). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Grandezas y antiguedades de la isla y ciudad de Cadiz

      First and only edition; an important archaeological work, traditionally accepted as amongst the best and most erudite of its kind published in the 17th century on Spain "uno de los mas eruditos y profundos que en materia arqueologica se publicaron en el siglo XVII" (Palau). The work is handsomely illustrated with woodcuts in text -one of which full page- showing the archeological findings of Cadiz. The contents are varied and at moments a little creative, however, it is one of the most learned studies on the antiquities and early history of Cadiz, which has a double fold interest: one, for it refers to Cadiz, the oldest continuously inhabited city in Spain, second because the City has been considered by some the oldest in Western Europe, although that is not true, it is one of the very oldest, thus of interest for the history of the whole of Europe. The rich history of the city goes back to its foundation by the Phoenicians, going through Roman occupation, Visigothic, Muslim, to its re-conquest during the 13th century; during the late 15th century, Cadiz would again be a site of turmoil, Columbus sailed from Cadiz for his second and fourth -and final- voyages to America, and later it would become the most significant port to deal with the Americas and the Treasure Fleet. Naturally such diversions merited the interest of other nations, which made Cadiz an attractive port for raids and piracy (especially British, with that of Drake at the late 16th century being the most famous, and from pirates of Barbary). The book contains references to America, and to the attacks and raids aforementioned. Maggs "The first book printed at Cadiz. It contains frequent references to America, Peru, Mexico, etc.", however, this is not the first book printed in Cadiz. The work is divided in four books: 1- The Greatness of Cadiz in particular; 2- Its Coat of Arms, is a Hercules with his insignia (which relates to the mythology of its being founded by Hercules); 3- The ceremonies of the Temple of Gaditan Hercules; 4- The particular Gods adored in Cadiz, the costumes of the inhabitants, and the burial traditions. Provenance: bought from Jose Mestre Albareda, 1952. Goldsmith S-971. Salva II, 3191: 'raro'. Palau, 324112. Maggs, 4118, 1926.

Compiled from a range of Byzantine and western histories, travellers' reports and letters, together with material from Leunclavius's recent Latin translation of a late fifteenth-century Ottoman chronicle, Knolles's was the first major work on the subject to appear in English, and was quickly recognized as a masterpiece of narrative synthesis -DNB.

        The generall historie of the Turkes : from the first beginning of that nation to the rising of the Othoman familie : with all the notable expeditions of the Christian princes against them : together with The lives and conqvests of the Othoman kings .....

      London: Printed by Adam Islip, 1610. Second Edition:- TITLE CONTINUATION: - "and emperours". Richard Knolles ( late 1540s - 1610 ) was born in Northamptonshire. He received both his BA and his MA from Lincoln College, Oxford in 1565 and 1570 respectively. Knolles’ Historie is based heavily on a range of sixteenth-century printed chronicles and reports. It is, therefore, essentially a synthesis of other works, but a carefully crafted synthesis produced in English. Nothing of this scale and detail had appeared before, in English, on the Ottomans, and it would be another fifty years before a subsequent work in English would become the authority on the subject. Despite this fact, both Samuel Jonson and Lord Byron turned to Knolles centuries later, and both alluded to the richness of his prose style. William Shakespeare, moreover, likely used Knolles’ work (and possibly an earlier manuscript version) as a source for his Othello (ca. 1603-1604). This is the second edition of this major work in English but is enlarged from the first edition, and some may consider the more sought after as a result. In super overall condition, now professionally preserved and bound in Black and Navy Leather & Boards, with gilt embellished spine within the 5 raised bands. Now with new endpapers and pastedowns which are sympathetic to the period of the book. Consequently is bound tightly, and with all contents clean and secure. The early pages have a little fray at edges/margins, and a degree of creasing, but not as to damage the main text { images to follow }. The title was originally published in 1603. Collation: p. Engraved title page [ i ], viii, 1303 [ i ], a further xxxviii pages, to include 'A Brief discourse of the greatness of the Turkish Empire, and followed by an alphabetical list of Tables - i.e. the Index.'; The volume has numerous illustrated copper enravings throughout and these are as called for. The rear few pages are similarly affected to margins as stated for the first few in the book.However, this remains a stunning item, that is particularly difficult to find in this condition.. Hardcover. Very Good. Folio - over 12" - 15" tall.

        Collection of 12 important works, mostly on ancient Rome]. Antwerp, Officina Plantiniana/Jan Moretus, 1596-1605. 12 editions (many in multiple parts) in 3 volumes. Large 4to (27.5 x 19.5 cm). Uniform blind-tooled pigskin (ca. 1610) over bevelled beechwood(?) boards, each board in a panel design with three decorative borders, showing 4 biblical scenes, 4 biblical portraits and 4 profile heads in roundels alternating with 4 shields. Each volume with 2 brass fastenings.

      - Twelve of Lipsius's most important works, mostly on the ancient Roman world (antiquities, customs, military history and technology, and philosophy), together with his famous Qui ad principatum maximè spectant (Mirror of princes) and in volume 3 his letters. Christoffel Plantin's son-in-law Jan Moretus, who took over his great Antwerp printing and publishing office, published all twelve editions before Lipsius's death. Items 3 and 7 are first editions, and nearly all these works were first published by Plantin or Moretus. They were uniformly bound in blind-tooled pigskin, probably for a Praemonstratensian monastery near Ravensburg ca. 1610. Justus Lipsius (1547-1606) was one of the leading classical scholars and humanists of the Low Countries in the second half of the 16th century. The first four works are nicely illustrated with engravings by Theodore Galle, Pieter van der Borcht and others.Volume 1 with a few mostly marginal wormholes through most of the volume, but more serious in the last few and especially the first few leaves, but otherwise in good condition, with an occasional minor wormhole in volume 2, and some browning and occasional minor stains in volume 3. The bindings are somewhat rubbed with wormholes in volume 1, but also still generally good, with most of the tooling clearly preserved, the binding structure sound, and only a couple worm holes in volumes 2 and 3, one clasp lacking. The spine of volume 3 was probably covered with paper, later removed but leaving traces of paste. Contents:-Saturnalium sermonum libri duo, qui de gladiatoribus.

        Illustrated manuscript on paper, one blank leaf, 173 leaves, each with a full-page richly colored trade mark, in many hues including silver, of the iron mills active in the Sankt Gallen area of Upper Styria in Austria. Small 4to (190 x 145 mm.), cont. blind-stamped panelled vellum (a little worn & defective), orig. clasps & catches

      [Styria; ca. 1610-20]. An important document for the early history of iron ore mining, refining, and trading in the Erzberg region of Styria, the most important ore mining area of Central Europe. These activities have continued from Roman times and were especially important in the 15th, 16th, and 17th centuries. This illustrated manuscript is a directory of the devices of all the iron mills likely active in the Sankt Gallen area in the early 17th century. These devices comprise a maker's mark - usually a geometrically shaped symbol but sometimes in the shape of an object such as an imperial orb, a cluster of grapes, a fish, or a mineworker - placed over a large figuratively and ornamentally designed cartouche in a variety of forms containing the name of the mill, i. e. of its current owner. Among these owners there are a number of women. Each of these devices is richly colored; the coloring is fine and fresh. Thanks to the names entered in the directory, its provenance and date may be exactly determined, as almost every entry can be assigned to a known iron mill proprietor in the Sankt Gallen area. The Pantz family is represented by Abraham, Christoph and Sebastian, active on the Pölzenbach stream near Sankt Gallen and at Weissenbach on the river Enns; we know that Sebastian died in 1613. The Schweinzer family, who also owned an iron mill at Weissenbach, likewise has three entries: Adam, Blasius (his symbol a fish) and Elias, the latter two being recorded as iron mill owners in 1604 and 1617 respectively. Wolf Scheichenfelder II was active at Sankt Gallen between 1587 and 1625 and Georg Thalhammer (mentioned in 1609) milled at Oberhof near Sankt Gallen. Other names prominent in the mining industry of northern Styria ca. 1600 include Händl, Haydn (Franz, his symbol a crossbow), Kohlthaler, Schrapacher, Stubmer (Matthias, his symbol a clover leaf), Winterl, and Würschenhofer. The miniatures include two floral wreaths (leaves 45 and 111), perhaps intended to contain half-titles, possibly with retrospective dates. It seems that the initial blank leaf (unnumbered, but of the same paper as the rest of the manuscript, so not a flyleaf) was intended to be supplied with a title on completion of the manuscript. However, this never happened, as the directory was used only at the time when it was written and then seems to have been forgotten about - which would explain the manuscript's fine and fresh condition. The cartouches are supplied with names only on the first 32 leaves (a few are left blank here, the entry on leaf 32 is only rudimentary). The final leaf provides an overview of colour variants, giving simple maker's marks as examples. The watermark (a curved escutcheon filled with a number of unidentifiable figures) is not in Piccard. Fine condition. Inner hinges strengthened, a few old and minor repairs to a few leaves, some light soiling and browning to edges at beginning, otherwise only some occasional foxing. ❧ Walter Stipperger, Almanach des steirischen Berg- und Hüttenwesens, Mitteilungen des Museums für Bergbau, Geologie und Technik am Landesmuseum Joanneum Graz, Heft 29, 1968.

        Joannis Metropolitani Euchaitensis versus iambici in principalium festorum pictas in tabulis historias atq[ue] alia varia compositi.

      In Collegio Regali, excudebat [M. Bradwood for] Ioannes Norton, in Gr[a]ecis, &c. regius typographus, 1610. One of the first two books printed at Eton, both in Greek and both printed in 1610. The Byzantine poetry here is from the pen of John, Mauropus, an 11th-century teacher, hymnographer, orator, Byzantine Greek poet, and correspondent of scholars. This, the editio princeps, was edited by and has the notes of Matthew Bust (1543 or 1544-1613), Fellow of Eton College and father of his namesake who was Master of Eton (1611-30). The prefatory matter and notes are printed in Latin in italics and the main text is in a large greek face; the actual printer's name is from STC. Searches of STC, WorldCat, and ESTC locate many copies in Britain and even Europe, but only five in U.S. libraries. Provenance: 18th-century ownership inscription at top of title-page: "Petri Bonifantii." Most recently in the library of American collector Albert A. Howard (sans indicia). => An amazing early English schoolbook!

        Illustrated manuscript on paper, one blank leaf, 173 leaves, each with a full-page richly colored trade mark, in many hues including silver, of the iron mills active in the Sankt Gallen area of Upper Styria in Austria. Small 4to (190 x 145 mm.), cont. blind-stamped panelled vellum (a little worn & defective), orig. clasps & catches

      - [Styria; ca. 1610-20]. An important document for the early history of iron ore mining, refining, and trading in the Erzberg region of Styria, the most important ore mining area of Central Europe. These activities have continued from Roman times and were especially important in the 15th, 16th, and 17th centuries. This illustrated manuscript is a directory of the devices of all the iron mills likely active in the Sankt Gallen area in the early 17th century. These devices comprise a maker's mark - usually a geometrically shaped symbol but sometimes in the shape of an object such as an imperial orb, a cluster of grapes, a fish, or a mineworker - placed over a large figuratively and ornamentally designed cartouche in a variety of forms containing the name of the mill, i. e. of its current owner. Among these owners there are a number of women. Each of these devices is richly colored; the coloring is fine and fresh. Thanks to the names entered in the directory, its provenance and date may be exactly determined, as almost every entry can be assigned to a known iron mill proprietor in the Sankt Gallen area. The Pantz family is represented by Abraham, Christoph and Sebastian, active on the Pölzenbach stream near Sankt Gallen and at Weissenbach on the river Enns; we know that Sebastian died in 1613. The Schweinzer family, who also owned an iron mill at Weissenbach, likewise has three entries: Adam, Blasius (his symbol a fish) and Elias, the latter two being recorded as iron mill owners in 1604 and 1617 respectively. Wolf Scheichenfelder II was active at Sankt Gallen between 1587 and 1625 and Georg Thalhammer (mentioned in 1609) milled at Oberhof near Sankt Gallen. Other names prominent in the mining industry of northern Styria ca. 1600 include Händl, Haydn (Franz, his symbol a crossbow), Kohlthaler, Schrapacher, Stubmer (Matthias, his symbol a clover leaf), Winterl, and Würschenhofer. The miniatures include two floral wreaths (leaves 45 and 111), perhaps intended to contain half-titles, possibly with retrospective dates. It seems that the initial blank leaf (unnumbered, but of the same paper as the rest of the manuscript, so not a flyleaf) was intended to be supplied with a title on completion of the manuscript. However, this never happened, as the directory was used only at the time when it was written and then seems to have been forgotten about - which would explain the manuscript's fine and fresh condition.
