1610.

Three parts in one vol. Small 4to, cont. calf (very neatly rebacked, sides a little rubbed). London: F. Kingston, 1610. Second edition, corrected and enlarged, of the most important and most famous English book on the art of navigation, "a book that set the seal on the supremacy of the English in the theory and practice of the art of navigation at this time. It contained a brilliant summary of all the chief contemporary practices of navigation together with a critical examination of their faults, and either the actual means for eliminating them or else sound guidance on the measures necessary to do away with them? "Wright's Certaine Errors was so packed with learning, was such an able survey of navigation practice at the close of the sixteenth century, and by its chart projection introduced such order out of the former cartographical confusion, that it and his other work merit fuller attention than can be devoted to it in a survey of this scope."-Waters, The Art of Navigation in England, pp. 219-20. The first edition, which appeared in 1599 and is a famously rare book, caused a "revolution in navigational science, which for the first time [Wright] based firml … [Click Below for Full Description]

Oxenstierna, Axel Graf, schwedischer Staatsmann, Kanzler Gustav Adolfs u. der Königin Christina (1583-1654).
1610. 1¾ SS. Folio. Mit Adresse. Ausführlicher, inhaltsreicher Brief in lateinischer Sprache an seinen Jenaer Herbergsvater, den Prediger Petrus Piscator (1571-1611). - Anlaß des Briefes ist der Studienbeginn zweier Verwandter, Achaz und Thuro, in Wittenberg, die er seinem Freund anempfiehlt. Er berichtet weiter, daß er zwei Jahre zuvor geheiratet habe und daß ihm seine Frau zwei Sprösslinge "utriusque sexi" geboren habe. Die Last der öffentlichen Ämter laste schwer auf ihm. - Oxenstierna fährt mit politischen Nachrichten fort u. geht im Weiteren detailliert auf die Schwierigkeiten in Rußland ein, das nach der Ermordung Iwans des Schrecklichen nicht zur Ruhe kommt. Polen habe sich den Hilferuf der Russen zu Nutzen gemacht u. eine Invasion gewagt, vorgeblich um die Prätentionen eines ("falschen" Demetrius zu unterstützen. Der König von Schweden habe auf Verlangen des Großfürsten Michael Iwanowitsch Schuiskij eingegriffen u. diesen zum Zaren erhoben; die Hilfe Karls IX. habe unmittelbar die Polen auf den Plan gerufen u. zur Belagerung von Smolensk geführt. - In religiösen Fragen herrsche - "laus deo" - Ruhe. 1610 wurde Oxenstierna erstmals für diplomatische Missionen in Kopenhagen eingesetzt, um den drohenden Krieg mit Dänemark abzuwenden. Im Juli dieses Jahres wurde der nach dem Mord des ersten "falschen" Demetrius zur Macht gekommene u. als Zar regierende Fürst Basil Shuiskij von Bojaren u. kosakischen Gefolgsleuten entthront. - Oxenstierna benützt entweder einen falschen Namen oder bezeichnet einen andern Shuiskij-Fürsten als den just in der Zeit des Briefes entthronten Ba … [Click Below for Full Description]
