CARTWRIGHT, John.
London: printed [by William Stansby] for Thomas Thorppe, and are to bee [sic] sold by Walter Burre,, 1611. The first Englishman visitor to all four key sites of antiquity in the Near East Small quarto (174 x 130 mm). Later polished tree calf, red morocco labels, raised bands, placed and dated in gilt at foot, marbled endpapers, gilt edges. Housed in a dark brown flat-back cloth box by the Chelsea Bindery. Title within typographical border, woodcut floriated initials and headpieces. Without blank leaf A4. Early 20th-century bookseller's ticket of Myers & Co., recent collector's bookplate of Howard Knohl. Front joint neatly repaired, small pale stain to title page, some unobtrusive marginalia, occasionally trimmed a little close, just shaving signature of K3, but the margins generally good, overall a very good copy. First edition. John Cartwright, identified on the title page as "sometimes student in Magdalen Colledge in Oxford", is invariably referred to as "The Preacher" after the title of this book; his name is often listed as being employed by the Levant Company in that capacity. Yet one of the oddest features of his fascinating travel tale is that Cartwright never once makes mention of preaching, either in any of the places to which he went or to any congregations. In fact he may well have been travelling solely to satisfy his desire for sight-seeing. If so, Cartwright's travels offers evidence that the notion of travel simply out of personal interest, not tied to either commerce or diplomacy (or earlier, to pilgrimage), had been in occasional existence some time befor … [Click Below for Full Description]

BELLARMINO, Roberto.
In omnes psalmos dilucida explanatio. Brescia, Giovanni Battista & Antonio Bozzola, 1611. 4to. With a woodcut printer's device on title-page and the colophon page. Contemporary vellum, brown spine label, red edges. [16], 903, [28] pp. Rare first edition of the famous Jesuit Bellarmino's Counter-Reformist work on the singing of psalms and meditation, a practise often portrayed as Protestant. According to WorldCat there are only copies of the present first edition in Italian libraries. Three separate issus of this work were published at the same time, which are identical save the impressum and colophon: the present issue by Bozzola, an issue by Pietro Maria Marchetti and one by Tebaldino. Though a member of the committee that condemned Galileo's theses, when Galileo was much troubled by the fact that people thought he was under some severe penance, Bellarmino wrote him a certificate stating that Galileo was under no penance whatsoever, but only had signed a declaration that his theses were in contradiction with the words of the scripture. One of his famous sayings was "an ounce of peace is better than a pound of victory". Several owner's marks on the front paste-down and first free endleaf. Mark at foot of title-page erased with some loss of text. Contemporary annotation on last page of preliminaries. A faint stain at the foot of the last few pages. Crack in foot of spine. Otherwise in very good condition. De Backer & Sommervogel I, 1222, 29; WorldCat (6 copies).

[VIEW - NETHERLANDS - AMSTERDAM]. BAST, Pieter.
Rare first state of a 16th-century view of Amsterdam as seen from the inlet known as the IJ made by Pieter Bast, a Dutch engraver from Antwerp best known for his city map of Amsterdam and this view. "In its amplitude and the sheer audacity of the presentation, this engraving is indisputably one of Bast's most significant creations. It is as much a portrait of the harbour of Amsterdam as of the city itself and underscores the unique importance of maritime trade as the principle source of the city's wealth and power". With its distinctive orientation he not only initiated the series of representations of Amsterdam as seen from the IJ, but also "established the standard for an entire genre of Dutch maritime painting" (Keyes). In 1611 a second state (edition) was published by Claesz Jansz. Visscher, who drastically altered the composition. In very good condition.l Hollstein I, p. 168, 8; Keyes, Pieter Bast 8 and p. 19.

GOES, Willem and Nicolas RIGAULT
[20], 360, [60]; 328 pp.First and only edition of a collection of texts on land surveying and agricultural law from classical antiquity, known as the Corpus agrimensorum Romanorum, here edited by Willem Goes (1611-1686). The classical authors include Aggenus Urbicus, Frontinus, Hyginus Gromaticus and Siculus Flaccus. The texts survived through a sixth-century manuscript that is now held in the Herzog August Bibliothek in Wolfenbüttel. Willem Goes (Guilelmus Goesius) was a leading 17th century Dutch legal scholar, who played a major role in Dutch history as one of the judges in the trial of Cornelis de Wit. He added to his edition of the Corpus agrimensorum Romanorum an index and a long history of agriculture during the Roman era. Also included is the commentary on the classical agraro-judicial texts by Nicolas Rigault (1614). The information was crucial for deciding any disputes concerning the boundaries of lands, but also provides a theoretical basis for landscape gardening and arboriculture. The illustrations depict various ways of geometrically laying out boundaries in landscapes and gardens, also illustrated are different types of trees and pruning methods. With a small map of the Amalfi coast (from Sorento to Salerno).With an old library mark in ink on front paste-down and title-page. With some of the paper browned and a couple pages water-stained in the head margin. Front hinge partly cracked, spine slightly rubbed.l Arnold Arboretum I, p. 283; Goldsmiths' Lib. 2068; Kress Lib. 1398.

[8], 144, [12]; [16], 151 [=152], [8]; [2], 34 pp.Three works from the early 17th century bound together. The first work is a popular illustrated history of Poland with portraits of monarchs, theologians and emperors, each with a short biography added, by Salomon Neugebauer (1611-1654).The second work is the first edition edited by the jurist Sybren Siccama (1571-1622), of a legal work with the laws of Friesland. The first edition, based on a now lost manuscript, was printed in 1557.The third work is a rare anti-Venetian pamphlet in Italian written on the occasion of the Uskok War (1615-1618). This war was waged by Venice against a group of Balkan pirates (Uskoks or Croatian-Habsburg soldiers), which was stationed by the Habsburg ruler Archduke Ferdinand of Styria (1578-1637) (later Ferdinand II) along its frontiers as part of its military borders. The Venetian-Habsburg conflict eventually involved troops from all-over Europe, with Venice, the Dutch United Provinces and England on one side, and the Austrian and Spanish Habsburgs on the other. The pamphlet includes an anti-Venetian Latin oration given in Rome by the French diplomat Louis Hélian in 1510.Tear in one leaf of the second work, otherwise in very good condition.l Ad.1: BLC STC German (17th cent.)

Bridget Of Sweden
Antwerp: Petri Belleri. The REVELATIONS Of Saint Bridget 1611 Prophecy Visions, Armageddon, Occult. Bridget of Sweden (1303-1373) was the most celebrated saint of Sweden which was how she was given her name. Her startling visions of biblical prophecies and important scenes of traumatizing future destruction at the hands of the anti-christ made her popular among other religious figures in her time. She was also the founder of the Bridgettines nuns and monks following the death of her husband. Her mystical prophecies are still in print today.This copy was published in Antwerp in 1611 by the widow of Petri Belleri who had access to lands following his death. She was granted publishing rights to this book and continued his business but remained anonymous. Although there are some surviving copies of this book from the late 15th century, this copy is by far the oldest available copy available for sale to the public.Things to note: The book is complete and contains 747 pages, written in the original Latin. The book is very large and measures 13" inches in height by 9" inches in width. All of the pages are in very good condition with only minor traces of foxing. The binding is very old and held together with rope on the spine. The book contains two clasps but both have broken due to age. Both covers of the book contain minor moisture damage as seen in the photos but otherwise have held up very well.

There are a number of manuscript entries and two 17th century land charters on vellum and one (dated 1736) on paper.

QUIROS (Pedro Fernandes de).
Madrid, 7 December, 1611. . Small folio (28.0 x 18.5 cms), 4 ff. (six pages of printed text followed by one integral blank leaf [i.e. two pages]). Woodcut initial to first leaf. A great rarity: an original quiros presentation memorial. 'The discovery of the Southern Continent, whenever, and by whomsoever it may be completely effected, is in justice due to this immortal name' (Alexander Dalrymple). Between 1607 and 1614 Quiros wrote a series of petitions (or memorials) addressed to the King of Spain requesting that he be given command of another voyage to find the great hidden continent: Terra Australis Incognita. The majority of these memorials, over 50 in number, were presented in manuscript form, however fourteen were printed at Quiros's own expense in limited numbers for presentation to the King and his Councils alone. These presentation memorials represent the earliest printed record of discovery and plans for colonisation of Terra Australis, the Australian continent. Pedro Fernandes de Queiros (1563[5?]-1614) was born in Portugal, becoming a Spanish subject when the two countries were temporarily united following the Portuguese succession crisis of 1580. More well-known by the Spanish form of his name, Quiros spent several years sailing the Pacific coasts of the Americas, distinguishing himself during the expedition of Alvaro de Mendaña which set out from Peru in 1595 to colonise the Solomon Islands. Despite the immense hardships of the Mendaña expedition it gave Quiros the inspiration that would drive him for the rest of his life: he would discover the … [Click Below for Full Description]

FLORIO, John
London: Melch. Bradwood [and William Stansby], for Edw. Blount and William Barret, 1611. Second, enlarged edition. Small folio. [xii], 617, [3], 617-690 pp, with some erratic pagination at intervals, lacking the blanks at the front and rear plus another at Fff4. Nineteenth century tan half calf over marbled boards for the Earls of Lothian with their gilt monogram to the head of the spine and their small Newbattle Abbey Library bookplate to the front pastedown, the earlier bookplate of William, Marquess of Lothian mounted to the foot of the title page. Engraved portrait of Florio. The title page sometime neatly laid down, subtle marginal repair to the final leaf, the spine ends, joints and corners sympathetically repaired, an attractive copy. John Florio (1553-1625) followed his Italian father into a career as a language tutor, mostly educating the children of ennobled and wealthy families. His first published work, "Florio his Firste Fruites" (1578), was a dual language collection of phrases and proverbs accompanied by an Italian grammar. In the succeeding decades he went on to publish several English translations of Italian texts along with a second grammar - "Florios Second Frutes" (1591). His ambitious "A Worlde of Wordes" first appeared in 1598, vastly superceding the only other Italian-English dictionary published to date, William Thomas' "Principal Rules of the Italian Grammer." (1550). Drawing upon the texts of dozens of near contemporary Italian works, Florio produced a dictionary with over 40,000 entries. Including terms from high literature to the vernacular, it p … [Click Below for Full Description]

Contemporary gold-tooled mottled calf, each board with the coat of arms of the French Seguier family, rebacked with original gold-tooled backstrip laid-down.

In the present work, the second of the two, he deals specifically with the Dominican presence in Ethiopia and the history of the Ethiopian saints. Like the first work, the Historia ecclesiastica published in 1610, it is a late example of a stream of geographical fantasies where Ethiopia was presented as the wondrous utopian kingdom of Prester John, and Urreta makes the case for an ancient Dominican presence in the country, arguing that they should thus be given precedence over the Jesuits as Catholic missionaries in that country.

Lettera annua della Provincia delle Filippine dell' anno M.DC.VIII.Rome, Bartolomeo Zanetti, 1611. Small 8vo (16 x 11.5 cm). 18th-century limp sheepskin parchment. 124, [2 blank] pp. Rare first Italian edition of the annual report and letter on the events that had taken place in the Philippines during the year 1608, especially regarding the Jesuit mission there. It is one of the earliest works published in the West solely devoted to the Philippines. The letter (pp. 3-124) reflects on the dramatic strides made by the Jesuits in the first decade of the 17th century and the corresponding increase in European interest in the region. The letter treats the difficulties with the Muslims in the "Pintados" (the Bisayan islands) and in Mindanao, the Dutch invasion of the region, the crocodile plague in Taitai, Indians in Santiago, the island Bohol, the mission in Ottona and other matters.Lach lists the present work among the earliest separately published Jesuit letters entirely devoted to the Philippines, characterizing them all as "exceedingly rare". Gregorio Lopez the elder (1561-1614) arrived in Manila in 1601 and made Philippine history by serving as the region's first Provincial, the highest-ranking administrative post, holding this office from 1605 until 1612. He was instrumental in suppressing the Chinese rebellion of 1603 and in dramatically increasing the educational activities of the Colleges of Manila and Cebù.With the title-page detached and re-attached and occasional minor foxing but book and binding otherwise in very good condition.

[16], 283, [25]; [16], 80, [16]; 20 pp. Rare second(?) edition by the original publisher and in the original Latin, of the most important work of the chemist, alchemist and physician Oswald Croll (1580-1609). It mixes chemical and spiritual means of healing, following Paracelsus both by supporting the theory that man is a microcosmos incorporating the universe, and by the 80-page second part on the doctrine of signatures, which suggests that herbs resembling parts of the human body can be used to treat ailments of that part. The Basilica chymica provides the reader with a large number of secret alchemical recipes and information about curative objects.

Margins frayed, soiling, old repairs, portions of texts defective (SEE IMAGES). With faults, and priced accordingly. Good. Highly interesting, nearly consecutive set of seven original leaves from the New Testament of the true first edition of the 1611 King James Bible, INCLUDING ALMOST 16 CHAPTERS FROM REVELATIONS. The translation into English of the King James, or "Authorized" Version of the Bible is widely considered a towering achievement in English literature, a rare combination of textual beauty and painstaking scholarship, created by the most unlikely of all sources, namely: a committee. The KJV itself has been called "the most influential version of the most influential book in the world, in what is now its most influential language," "the most important book in English religion and culture", and "the most celebrated book in the English-speaking world." The bibliographic complexities of the Great "He" Bible and the Great "She" Bible are legendary, but the most authoritative analysis has been undertaken by David Norton in his unsurpassed "Textual History of the King James Bible" (Cambridge University Press, 2004) - see especially Appendix 2 in which all the distinguishing points are clearly enumerated, and rendering all previous scholarship obsolete and irrelevant.

CROLL, Oswald.
Basilica chymica continens. Philosophicam propria[m] laborum experientia[m] confirmatam descriptionem et usum remediorum chymicorum selectissimorum é lumine gratiae et naturae desumptorum.

With a richly engraved general title-page by Aegidius Sadeler including the portraits of 6 famous alchemists: Hermes Trismegistus, Geber (Jabir ibn Hayyan), Roger Bacon, Paracelcus, Ramon Llull and Morienus Romanus of Jerusalem. 17th-century vellum. [16], 283, [25]; [16], 80, [16]; 20 pp. Rare second(?) edition by the original publisher and in the original Latin, of the most important work of the chemist, alchemist and physician Oswald Croll (1580-1609). It mixes chemical and spiritual means of healing, following Paracelsus both by supporting the theory that man is a microcosmos incorporating the universe, and by the 80-page second part on the doctrine of signatures, which suggests that herbs resembling parts of the human body can be used to treat ailments of that part. The Basilica chymica provides the reader with a large number of secret alchemical recipes and information about curative objects. The Basilica chymica quickly became and remained the standard scientific work on iatrochemistry, a branch of both chemistry and medicine, rooted in alchemy and seeking to provide chemical solutions to diseases and medical ailments. With owners' inscriptions and early manuscript notes. Slightly browned, with chips in … [Click Below for Full Description]

Cossin, Louis (1627-1704) and Guérard, Nicolas (1648?-1719) after Sevin, Pierre-Paul (1650-1710)
"Incomplete serie. 8 engraved plates on 4 double-sided leaves by Louis Cossin after Sevin celebrating king's Louis XIV triumphs with aphorisms and emblematic devices some of which are by Claude François Menestrier. An illustrated allegory depicting the campaigns of Henri de la Tour d'Auvergne, Vicomte de Turenne (1611-75) on behalf of, and latterly with, Louis XIV. This suite of plates, unfortunately incomplete, was issued by the Jesuit College of Clermont. The text, displayed on 12 plates, is a treatise on rhetoric by Turenne's nephew, dedicated to the martial exploits of Louis XIV. The plates contain three philosophical maxims by P. Fr. Nepveu bordered by richly ornate engravings: these comprise a head-piece vignette illustrating and naming the campaign, a tail-piece in cartouche or tablet with brief summary of the main events of the action; either side are 2 emblematic devices (in all 48, of which 28 are attributed by Praz to Claude-François Menestrier). Linking the illustrations are an extraordinarily inventive array of pagan and Christian figures, mythical creatures, symbolic instruments, grotesque ornaments, and floral and foliar decoration. The Jesuit, Claude-François Menestrier (1631-1705) was particularly renowned for his treatises on the art of devices and emblems. Of the artists named on the title, the painter, Pierre-Paul Sevin, was notable for illustrating the events of the reign of Louis XIV largely employing late Baroque symbolism; the calligrapher, René Michault is considered one of the best pupils of the great calligraphic master Jarré.
