SAXTON, Christopher & William Kip.
London., 1610. Omnium in Anglia Comitatu um minimus Pars olim. Coritanorum. Size:290 x 215 mm. Copperplate engraving with later colour. Fair condition. All margins slim, as is usual. Some scratch mark to the original plate. This delightful map of Rutland, England's smallest county, was produced in William Camden's historic and important atlas 'Britannia'; first published in 1607. This map comes from the second edition, printed only 3 years later. Mannersist style embellishments add to and complement this very early county map. 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.

Solis y Ribadeneyra, Antonio de (1610-1686)
[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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Henry IV, King of France; Skory Edmund]
London: Robert Barker, 1610. VERY RARE First edition. Leaf A1 with an engraved thistle motif signature, Royal Arms engraved on the verso of the title-page, a handsome 5 line engraved opening initial cap and two engraved headpieces. 4to (169x120mm), bound in marbled paper over boards, with a printed paper label on the spine. [32] pp. A finely preserved copy, a bit of extremely minor, unobtrusive light antique staining to the top edge of the last few leaves, the modern binding in fine condition. VERY RARE FIRST EDITION. WorldCat list only 5 copies in institutional libraries, we know of no other copies currently on the market and auction records show only one copy since 1978. A concise contemporary history of King Henry IV, “le bon Roi Henri”, published within months of his death. Although he was regarded as a King of kindness, compassion, and good humor, and was popular with his people, he had been the target of several murder attempts. On the 14th of May in 1610, King Henry IV was assassinated in Paris by a fanatically passionate Catholic, François Ravaillac, who stabbed the king to death while he rode in his coach. Henry was buried at the Saint Denis Basilica. Henry's widow, Marie de Médici, served as Regent to their 9-year-old son, Louis XIII, until 1617. Very little seems to be known of the author, Edmund Skory, other than the fact that he had a rather abusive wife. She is rumored to have once even thrown him out of a window. In his will he left a considerable sum to his wife’s servant, no doubt as a reward for years of service.

The multiple images shown include a farmer's family (Canarim), soldier (Lascarign) and a "professional" dancer (Baldaheira). This is a rare plate from the work of this master craftsman. Linschoten, according to Penrose, was "the leading geographical figure in Renaissance Holland". He sailed with William Barents in search of the fabled northeast passage which was to connect to the orient via the arctic. His ITINERARIO was the best account of the era for sailing routes to the East Indes. These were first published in 1596, and this is from a later edition.
