        Historia de la Sagrada Orden de Predicadores en los remotos Reynos de la Etiopia.

      Valencia, Juan Chrysostomo Garriz, 1611. - Small 4to (21 x 15 cm). With woodcut arms of the Dominican order (with the IHS and cross covering the centre) on title-page, and a variant version on the last page, and 3 woodcuts in text (2 saints and the Cross). Further with 24 decorated woodcut initials in two series, including 11 repeats. [16], 410, [6] pp. Contemporary gold-tooled mottled calf, each board with the coat of arms of the French Seguier family and with the monogram PSMF (Pierre Seguier and his wife Madeleine Fabry) repeated 6 times on the spine, rebacked (on recessed cords) with original gold-tooled backstrip laid-down, a later spine label (between the 1st and 2nd monogram), the year of publication 1611 at the foot of the spine, later endpapers. First and only edition, in Spanish, of an early work on Ethiopia by the Spanish Dominican monk Luis de Urreta (ca. 1570-1636), who wrote two volumes glorifying his own order's accomplishments in Ethiopia while diminishing those of the Jesuits (his Dominican coat of arms incorporates the IHS with cross, often used by the Jesuits). 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. On pp. 88-90 it gives the information from a report to Pope Gregory XIII (1502-1585) on two Dominican monks (Blackfriars) from the Alleluya monastery, who entered Mecca around 1580 and had contact with a Faqih and a Marabout. Everyone who travelled from Africa to Mecca supposedly had to travel by way of the Alleluya monastery as the rest of the region was considered uninhabitable (p. 61). From the library of Pierre Seguier, Lord Chancellor of France from 1635 to 1672, best known for his appearance in The three musketeers, with his arms and monogram stamped in gold on the binding. And with an owner's inscription of the 17th-century French scholar Etienne Baluze ("Stephanus Baluzius Tutelensis") on title-page. With a faint water stain in the lower margin of four leaves in the introduction, a tiny corner torn from the title-page and two tiny tears in the margins of the main text, otherwise in very good condition. Binding heavily restored, but with the gold-tooled coat of arms still very clear. Olivier, 271(4). Finger & Piccolino, The shocking history of electric fishes, p. 117; Palau 345993; Salva 3417; cf. Gay, Bibl. de l'Afrique et l'Arabe 2690.

        Le Mespris du monde EDITION ORIGINALE

      S.l.: S.n., 1611. Fine. S.n., S.l. 1611, in-16 (6x10,5cm), 362 pp., relié. - First edition, rare and anonymous. The book will be increased by 3 treated in the edition of 1618, and another 5 in an edition ultérieure.La Mazarine library has a copy of 1618 and a copy of the Oxford edition of 1670 and that of 1618; Absent therefore in the British Library and the National Library. Full vellum of the time. Back with four nerves decorated with a piece of sheepskin as blonde. Stamped boards. A bookplate two stuck on the first dolphin guard with the letter A. The Treaty of contempt of the world is at the origin of a work Eucherius, bishop of Lyon, then hermit who cultivated in his work a Stoic position to against the world; this spiritual disboard found a remarkable echo in the first half of the seventeenth (which can be summarized by the term today Vanities) and many works regained the title, like that of Isaac Arnauld develops a treaty vanities. The work is built into 7 parts: I. Speech contempt of the world. II. From the thus led life. III. Iujement of God on the wicked ... IIII. Meditation on penance. V. Meditation on saintcte cene. VI. Speech afflictions, and knew martyrdom. VII. Meditations of a patient. Arnauld was counselor of Henri IV and superintendent of finances, his public position illuminates its spiritual glow of a strange work, and demonstrates the presence of the Christian message tinged with stoicism in all strata of society; spiritual doctrine own contempt of the world was at once taken up by the Protestants and Jansenists, it shows the vitality of a spirituality inherited both Christianity and antiquity. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

L'ouvrage sera augmentée de 3 traités dans l'édition de 1618, puis de 5 autres dans une édition ultérieure.La bibliothèque Mazarine possède un exemplaire de 1618, et Oxford un exemplaire de l'édition de 1670 et de celle de 1618 ; Absent donc à la British Library et à la Bibliothèque Nationale. Reliure en plein vélin de l'époque. Dos à quatre nerfs orné d'une pièce de titre de basane blonde. Plats estampés. Un ex-libris à deux dauphins collé sur la première garde avec la lettre R. Le traité du mépris du monde est à l'origine un ouvrage d'Eucher, évêque de Lyon, puis ermite qui cultiva dans son oeuvre un position stoïcienne à l'égard du monde ; ce discours spirituel trouva un remarquable écho dans la première moitié du XVIIe (qu'on peut résumer aujourd'hui par le terme de Vanités) et de nombreuses oeuvres reprirent le titre, tel celui d'Isaac Arnauld qui développe un traité des vanités. L'oeuvre est construite en 7 parties : I. Discours sur le mespris du monde. II. De la conduicte de la vie. III. Iujement de Dieu sur les iniques... IIII. Meditation sur la penitence. V. Meditation sur la saintcte cene. VI. Discours des afflictions, & su martyre. VII. Meditations d'un malade. Arnauld fut conseiller d'Henri IV et intendant des finances, sa position publique éclaire son oeuvre spirituelle d'une étrange lueur, et démontre la présence du message chrétien teinté de stoïcisme dans toutes les couches de la société ; la doctrine spirituelle propre au mépris du monde fut tout à la fois reprise par les protestants et les jansénistes, elle affiche la vitalité d'une spiritualité héritée à la fois du christianisme et de l'Antiquité.

        SEÑOR. LAS RELIGIONES MENDICANTES Y MONACALES, EN NOMBRE DE SUS CASAS Y CÓUENTOS DE LAS PROUINCIAS DE LAS INDIAS OCIDENTALES.[caption title].

      [Spain? ]. 1611 - [12]pp. (leaves numbered 1-6). In Spanish. Folio. Dbd. Early folds, mild foxing. Very good. An early and evidently unrecorded 17th- century Spanish petition to the king on behalf of mendicant and monastic communities in the Spanish Americas. The authors argue that the churches attempting to tax their incomes and force them to pay tithes are hurting religious efforts in the Americas and infringing upon the historical independence of the religious orders from the churches. The document is signed in print by eleven monks, each representing a different order: the Benedictines, Hieronymites, Franciscans, Cistercians, Mercedarians, Dominicans, Augustinians, Trinitarians, Jesuits, Premonstratensians, and Carmelites. The Jesuit signer is Pedro de Caruajal, presumably Pedro de Carbajal, former magistrate and judge of the Vilcas Huamán province of Peru and author of DESCRIPCION FECHA DE LA PROVINCIA DE VILCAS GUAMAN.EN EL AÑO 1586.

Some browning, marginal worming in six leaves, else a fine, complete and unsophisticated copy of these rare works. Origins of Arabic Typography in Germany An outstanding Sammelband of works by pioneering Arabist and physician Peter Kirsten (1577-1640), who started a private press in Breslau (Wroclaw) in 1607. His Arabic type, which shows the influence of the Medicean types, was cut by Petrus von Seelau. He published the type specimen, Tria specimina characterum arabicorum, and then a three-part Arabic grammar. These are the first books printed in Germany from Arabic type. Roper notes that Kirsten ?'created a superior type-face, with some calligraphic qualities, which he not only used for his own letter specimens and Arabic grammar ... but later took to Sweden, where he inaugurated Arabic typography under royal patronage.?" Kirsten emphasized the usefulness of Arabic for the study of medicine, and prepared a bilingual text of Liber II of Avicenna; curiously, however, the balance of his work was on religious themes, and after 1611 he published nothing further. Individual titles by Kirsten are quite uncommon in institutional holdings and the few that have appeared at auction have often been rebound: a sound, contemporary copy of his major works such as this is a genuine rarity.

        Flavii Iosephi viri inter Ivdaeos clarissimi Opera omnia quae extant ex Graecorum codicum accurata collatione Latine expressa: opus in tomos duos distributum: notis & annorum serie ad oram singulorum capitum illustratum: cum indice locupletissimo

      Sumptibus Samuelis Crispini and Ex typographia Iacobi Stoer, Genevae (Geneva) 1611 - 2 volumes. 570 numbered leaves (numbered only on the obverse) with xxv index pages, title page of volume 1 in red and black; 316 number leaves with xxii index pages. Thick duo decimo (4 3/4" x 3 1/2") bound in original vellum. Titus Flavius Josephus, born Joseph ben Matityahu was a first-century Romano-Jewish scholar, historian and hagiographer, who was born in Jerusalem¿then part of Roman Judea¿to a father of priestly descent and a mother who claimed royal ancestry. He initially fought against the Romans during the First Jewish¿Roman War as head of Jewish forces in Galilee, until surrendering in 67 to Roman forces led by Vespasian after the six-week siege of Jotapata. Josephus claimed the Jewish Messianic prophecies that initiated the First Roman-Jewish War made reference to Vespasian becoming Emperor of Rome. In response Vespasian decided to keep Josephus as a slave and interpreter. After Vespasian became Emperor in 69, he granted Josephus his freedom, at which time Josephus assumed the emperor's family name of Flavius. Flavius Josephus fully defected to the Roman side and was granted Roman citizenship. He became an adviser and friend of Vespasian's son Titus, serving as his translator when Titus led the Siege of Jerusalem, which resulted¿when the Jewish revolt did not surrender¿in the city's destruction and the looting and destruction of Herod's Temple (Second Temple). Josephus recorded Jewish history, with special emphasis on the first century AD and the First Jewish¿Roman War, including the Siege of Masada. His most important works were The Jewish War (c75) and Antiquities of the Jews (c94). The Jewish War recounts the Jewish revolt against Roman occupation (66¿70). Antiquities of the Jews recounts the history of the world from a Jewish perspective for an ostensibly Roman audience. These works provide valuable insight into first century Judaism and the background of Early Christianity. For many years, printed editions of the works of Josephus appeared only in an imperfect Latin translation from the original Greek. Only in 1544 did a version of the standard Greek text become available, edited by the Dutch humanist Arnoldus Arlenius. The first English translation, by Thomas Lodge, appeared in 1602, with subsequent editions appearing throughout the 17th century. The 1544 Greek edition formed the basis of the 1732 English translation by William Whiston, which achieved enormous popularity in the English-speaking world. Condition: Author and volume in neat ink to heal page ends, corners bumped, old institutional stamp to title verso, old ink date to title else a very good set of an early Latin edition.

Author Information: An Ancestor of the Duke of Wellington, Henry Fitzsimon was born in Swords, Co. Dublin in 1566. He was educated as a protestant in Manchester and at Christ Church College, Oxford where he graduated in Philosophy in 1587. He also studied at Pont à Mousson in Paris after which he travelled to Rome where he converted to Catholicism and was appointed Professor of Philosophy at Douay. Fitzsimon entered a Jesuit Seminary in 1593 at Louvain and returned to Dublin in 1596 as an ordained priest. In 1599 the Earl of Essex ordered the arrest of Fitzsimon in Cahir, Co. Tipperary. He evaded arrest but was eventually captured and imprisoned in Dublin Castle until 1604, five years after his imprisonment. When he was released he was banished from Ireland. He travelled to Spain, Then Luxembourg and Tournay where he became a military chaplain in the Austria and Bohemian Armies. Fitzsimon returned to Rome in 1608 where he wrote The Justification and Exposition of the Missioner Throughout Ireland? (1611) and a Catalogue of Irish Saints (1615). It is believed that he ministered to condemned criminals in Liege, Belgium in 1619 before he accompanied the army to Bohemia in 1620. His experiences there recounted in his History of the Bohemian Campaign (1620). In 1621 he published Buquoy Quadrimestre Iter, Progressuque quo, favente numine, ac auspice Ferdinando Il Rom. Imp.

        [In Greek]: PHILABIOU IOSEPOU HIEROSOLYMITOU HEIREOS TA HEURISKOMENA. FLAVII IOSEPHI HIEROSOLYMITANI SACERDOTIS OPERA QUÆ EXTANT. [WORKS IN GREEK AND LATIN]

      Geneva: Petrus de la Rouviere, 1611. n. Hardcover. 362 x 222 mm (14 1/4 x 8 3/4"). [4] pl., 1102 pp., [1] blank leaf, [13] leaves (index). SUMPTUOUS CONTEMPORARY HONEY BROWN MOROCCO, RICHLY GILT IN A MODIFIED FANFARE DESIGN, covers with outer frame of multiple plain and decorative rules and rolls, the frame surrounding a central panel formed by multiple plain rules and a filigree roll and featuring oblique fleurons pointing outward at corners, the panel with very densely gilt and elaborate cornerpieces and a large central lozenge incorporating olive branch garlands and rosettes, an oval at the center of the lozenge with the contemporary coat of arms of the abbot of Pontigny (see below), flat spine with a chain roll framing a single elongated panel tooled in a design similar to the covers, all edges gilt, holes for ties (perhaps with small, very expert repairs at spine bottom). Woodcut printer's device on title page, woodcut headpieces and decorative initials. Latin and Greek text printed in parallel columns. Front pastedown with partially effaced 17th century ownership inscription of "Henry [Becold?] / His Booke / E. Col. Pemb: [Pembroke College, Oxford] / Oxon / 1:16:8:" and of "[illegible] Crewkerne[?]" dated 1734, and with 19th century inscription of D. C. Lewis. Hoffman II, 444; Ebert 10898; Dibdin II, 130. For the binding: Hobson & Culot "Italian and French 16th Century Bookbindings" 73. Blank lower right corner of title page neatly replaced (in the 19th century?), small, pale dampstain in bottom margin of a few leaves, branching marginal wormholes in half a dozen quires (but these always extremely thin and never intruding on the text), minor soiling, browning, and foxing here and there, but still a very good copy internally, the leaves fresh, clean, and with good margins. A hint of wear to joints and extremities, the spine uniformly a little darkened (with the gilt just slightly less bright than on the boards), covers with trivial discoloration and abrasions, but THE IMPRESSIVE BINDING IN REMARKABLE CONDITION, entirely solid, with only minor signs of use, and with the once-dazzling gilt nearly as good as it was 400 years ago. This is an early 17th century Parisian binding with a secure connection to a Cistercian abbot and a likely connection with the binders to the French king. The tools used here match those employed on a binding of ca. 1600 from the Doheny collection (lot 1458, Christie's 17-18 October 1998), cited as item #73 in Hobson and Culot. The chain roll used on that volume is identical to the one we have, and the overall design of the central panel--employing the same olive branch and flower tools--is very similar. That binding later passed into the Wittock collection, and in the catalogue for his 7 October 2005 sale at Christie's Paris, it is described as coming from a bindery of some importance, perhaps that of Clovis Ève or one of his more adept imitators. Nicolas Ève (d. ca. 1582) was court binder and bookseller to the kings of France beginning in 1578; he was succeeded by his son Clovis, who continued in that capacity until 1634. The work of the Ève bindery was characterized by elaborate ornamentation made up of small hand tools that typically decorated the entire covers except at the center, where an oval was left blank, or sometimes emblazoned, as here, with a heraldic crest. According to Olivier-Hermal, the arms on our volume belong to one of two 17th century abbots of the Cistercian monastery at Pontigny, either Claude Boucherat or his first cousin Charles. Both men served as ecclesiastical members of the Council of State, and Charles also became Vicar General of the Cistercian order. Olivier-Hermal (XXII, 2233) lists three other volumes published between 1603 and 1630 that bear these arms. The text here is the earliest available edition in Greek and Latin of the works of the Jewish historian Josephus (ca. 37 - ca. 100). Dibdin records De la Rouviere's 1591 edition of the work, from which our 1611 edition was reprinted; however, no copies of the earlier edition can be located in OCLC, COPAC, or KVK, and none has appeared in auction records since at least 1975. Swept up in the Jewish rebellion begun in 66, Josephus was captured, but, when led before Vespasian, he was spared after telling his captor that he would become emperor. After the prophecy came true two years later, Josephus was freed, given the Vespasian family name of Flavius, and eventually pensioned on an estate, where he devoted the rest of his life to writing Jewish histories. Included in this corpus are his "Jewish Antiquities," "The Jewish War," an apologetic autobiography entitled "Against Apion" (an attempt to dispel misrepresentations of the Jews), and a book on the martyrdom of the Maccabees.

        Specimen historiae plantarum. Plantae typis aeneis expressae.

      - Paris, Hadrianus Beys, 1611. 4to (120 x 176mm). pp. (6), 154, 47, (1), with 25 full page engraved plates. 18th century half vellum, marbled sides (small paper damage to back cover). First edition, together with Jacques August de Thou's five poems printed at the end. Most bibliographies do not mention the 24 leaves of the de Thou's text, it is however an integral part of the book. "Renaulme herborized in the Alps, in Switzerland, in Italy, and all around Paris. His book showed some awareness of the neccessity of plant classification, but he failed to arouse the interest of his contemporaries. Blunt speaks with understandable enthusiasm of the quality of the etchings, 'exquisitely sensitive and extremely personal in treatment. They are assuredly the work, not only of a great lover of nature, but of a great master of the etcher's craft'. H.H. Barlett also speaks with appreciation of the beauty of the illustrations, and his further remarks on Renaulme's nomenclature suggest that Renaulme was in advance of his time." (Hunt 192).Title with some old inkspotting, some inoffensive yellowing of the paper thoughout.Provenance: Bookplate of Ed. Bonnet, famous French botanist, and bookplate of 'The Horticultural Society of New York, Bequest of Kenneth K.

      Iohan Ant and Samuel De Tournes, Geneva 1611 - THREE (3) BOOKS bound together [1647, 1611 and 1671]. ITEM#1: This doesn't have a title page but does have a half title: Compendium Grammaticae Gallicae: in gratiam illorum editum, qui Germanicum idoma perfecte non callent.

Lugd[uni] Batavor[um]: Ex officina Elzeviriorum, 1647. The book is definitely by Nathanael Duez who signs his name in the preface. 44pp. ITEM #2: The second book is also lacking title page. Half title is Dictionnaire Francois, Alleman & Latin. This matches a book found in WorldCat (OCLC: 42611968) also without a title page [Dictionnaire francois-alleman-latin]. This, according to that database, was issued in 1611 in Genevae "ex typographia Jacobi Stoer". 744pp. ITEM #3: The third book is titled" Dictionarium Germanico- Gallico- Latinum = Teutsch, Frantzosisch, und Lateinisch Dictionarium" by Nathanael Duez issed in In Genff [Geneva]: bey Iohan Ant. und Samuel De Tournes, 1671. 587pp. Book description: 18th century half brown morocco leather with grey-blue boards. Plain paper with black lettering on spine. Spine has five raised bands. The boards appear original and are heavily worn. The leather is moderately worn but still in good condition. All edges colored red. Signature on the front free endpage in ink which reads "Exlibris Josephi Thoma Faslino Jacerooti, 1782." The book appears to have been bound sometime in the late 18th century using the original boards with new (18th century) endsheets. The book has been trimmed when the three were bound together. There is no margin to the top of these books with a quarter inch margin elsewhere. The first and second books suffer clipping of the running title and the page numbers. Overall in GOOD condition. Nathanael Duez was French expatriat who spent most of his life working in Leiden as a teacher of French, Italian and German at the university. He was a prolific writer of linguistic books many of which are important for modern language teaching. Most his books went through several editions being corrected, enlarged or reduced by Duez himself. These were often reprinted, re-edited and pirated throughout Europe while he was alive and long after his death. Duez was the recognised expert in lexiconical & grammatical matters between 1639 and 1700 in French, German & Italian. Photos available upon request.

Pleine Basane brune d'époque. Dos à nerfs orné. Pièce de titre en maroquin rouge. Coiffe de tête arrachée, coiffe de queue arasée. Deux trous au troisième caisson. Cet important ouvrage astronomique contient les tables solaires et lunaires complètes de Ptolémée, Copernic, Tycho Brahe et Alfonsus. Les commentaires sont de Nicolas des Mulier(s) (1564-1630) de Bruges, qui fut professeur de mathématique et de médecine à l'université de Groningen, puis son bibliothécaire. Il a écrit et publié plusieurs ouvrages astronomiques : Institutionum astronomicarum libri duo, 1616, Iudæorum annus lunæ-solaris: et Turc-Arabum annus merê lunaris. Des Muliers s'intéressa particulièrement dans ses études à la chronologie, mais il fit également de nombreuses observations astronomiques au moyen d'un télescope personnel. L'ouvrage est loin d'être seulement une compilation, il s'agit d'un relecture et toutes les dates furent recalculées, et Muliers s'intéresse aux éclipses mais également aux méthodes de calcul des différents astronomes. Muliers comprit surtout que l'astronomie n'était pas que des théories basées sur de savants calculs, mais que les calculs astronomiques révélaient la réalité de corps astronomiques, et qu'elle n'était pas non plus ce qu'enregistrait notre perception. 464pp. (28) 77pp. (2) [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Specimen Historiae Plantarum. Plantae typis aeneis expressae

      Paris: Hadrian Beys, 1611., 1611. small 4to. pp. 4 p.l. (the last blank), 152, [2], [1 leaf]blank. 24 full-page etchings of flowers (the etching on p. 96 is a paste-over cancel). woodcut printer's device on title. 2 woodcut headpieces & 2 woodcut initials. some text in Greek. contemporary limp vellum (covers spotted, lower front cover chipped, paper lightly embrowned, occasional stains & some marginal foxing). fine woodcut bookplate of André Alexandre Normandeau, Vicomte. First Edition. This work has been especially highly praised for the quality of its etchings, which Reneaulme executed after his own drawings. "The illustrations are extraordinary for the date: finely detailed naturalistic studies that recall Jacques Le Moyne de Morgues. Each plate shows the whole plant but with additional studies of variant forms. The book is an excellent demonstration of how apt etching, with its fine sensitive line, is to the demands of botanical illustration." (Gill Saunders, Picturing Plants An Analytical History Of Botanical Illustration, p. 13) "[Reneaulme's] etchings are of the highest quality - exquisitely sensitive and extremely personal in treatment. They are assuredly the work, not only of a great lover of nature, but of a great master of the etcher's craft." (Blunt) Saunders also notes that the book, although modest in scope, "was of sufficient botanical significance to be later cited by Linnaeus." Reneaulme, who was a physician as well as a botanist, discusses the medicinal uses of various plants and he also describes some plants which are indigenous to America. Of particular interest is the section on the tobacco plant, which is illustrated on p. 37. [BOUND WITH, as issued]: [THOU, Jacques Auguste De] [1553-1617]. Crambe. Viola. Lilium. Phlogis.

Rara edizione secentesca veneziana del capolavoro del Tasso.

I "Cinque Canti" aggiunti sono di Camillo Camilli (Monte San Savino, data ignota del XVI secolo-Ragusa, 1615), "erudito vanittoso e senza scrupoli, la cui opera si colloca fra quelle degli epigoni di Torquato Tasso. Con i suoi "Cinque canti", composti durante la segregazione del grande poeta e pubblicati a insaputa di lui in appendice alla "Gerusalemme liberata" (intitolandola "Goffredo"), intese portare a compimento le vicende di Armida-Rinaldo e di Erminia-Tancredi, concludendole con il suicidio di Armida e la conversione di Erminia, peraltro prevista dal Tasso stesso."

There is loss to the Faults page (bottom corner) and p 755 has a corner missing without loss of text. The pages vary from being completely clean to having spotting to having browning. There are occasional water stains to page margins - most usually the bottom margin - occasionally with a pinkish tinge at the page edge. A few pages have small repaired tears without loss.

        Cardigan Shyre

      London 1611 - 16 5/8" x 21 1/2" Speed, John. "Cardigan Shyre Described with the due forme of the Shiretown as it was surveyed by I.S. Anno 1610." Copperplate engraving (black and white; no color). London, 1611. From the atlas "Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine." First edition with fine dark impressions and English text on the back. Published by John Sudbury and George Humble. Approximate size is 16 5/8 x 21 1/2 inches. An early map of this Welsh coastal county. Cardiganshire was created in 1282. In 1282 Edward I of England conquered the principality of Wales and divided the area into counties. The name Cardigan was an Anglicization of the name for the historic kingdom of Ceredigion. To all those interested in cartography, the name of John Speed is synonymous with early county maps of Great Britain. His predecessors, Saxton, Norden, and one or two lesser figures had laid the groundwork for the first mapping of Britain in the days of Queen Elizabeth. By the end of the 16th century, however, the increase in travel and commerce had created a need for better maps, and Speed's quickly replaced those of his predecessors. Not only were they more accurate, but undoubtedly the beauty of the engraving, the fine lettering and elaborate ornamentation appealed to the original buyers as much as they do to us today. Speed's atlas was so ambitious and of such high artistic and intellectual merit that it remained the standard reference for Great Britain until the beginning of the eighteenth century. The atlas was so highly acclaimed that editions continued to appear until the 1770's. Speed was one of the earliest English antiquarians, and his interest in history led him to add vignettes to his maps of great past events, together with town and architectural plans. Most maps, for example, contain representations of battles that occurred in the given county, of ancient artifacts and monuments, such as Stonehenge, and of the great cathedrals and palaces of medieval and Tudor England. The plates were engraved in Amsterdam by the great Dutch mapmaker Jodocus Hondius and exhibit the highest level of craftsmanship and artistic embellishment, reflecting the pervasive and appealing Mannerist style of the period, with strapwork and fretwork cartouches, heraldic crests, and costumed figures. The decoration and accuracy of Speed's maps, particularly with regard to the lavish use on each map of the coats-of-arms of that country's early leading nobles, inspired the later British county maps of Blaeu and Jansson.

        Histoire Universelle des Indes occidentales et orientales, et de la conversion des Indiens. Divisiee en trois parties

      chez François Fabri, Douai 1611 - Early 18th-century calf, spine gilt in seven compartments with raised bands, lettered in the second, the others with repeat pattern in gilt (joints weak, corners bumped) Provenance: J. Besnier (or 'Benier', 'Huissier ord. du Cabinet du Roi', numerous inscriptions, many crossed through, some dated 1650); de La Porte (signatures, some with date 1654); Madame la Comtesse des Courtils (19th-century armorial bookplate) A fine copy of Wytfliet's description of the Americas (the third edition in French), here with the addition of Magini's valuable description of the West and East Indies and Japan. The first edition of Wyfliet's work is "the first atlas of America" (Burden), and was first published in Latin as Descriptionis Ptolemaicae augmentum in 1597. As the title suggests, it was marketed as a supplement to Ptolemy's Geographia , with text based on the writings of Ramusio, Hakluyt, de Bry, Acosta and others. The work was evidently popular as two further Latin editions appeared in 1598 and 1603. The work was then translated into French and combined with the work of Magini and others and first published under the present title in 1605. Further editions of this compilation appeared in 1607 and 1611 (the present edition). The nineteen double-page engraved maps of the American continent appeared in all of the Latin and French editions (but with some changes of state). The first map (a double-hemisphere world map) is based on Mercator's influential map of 1587. There then follows ten maps of South America (the north coast of South America with the Caribbean islands, Hispaniola, Cuba and Jamaica, Chile, Peru, two maps of Brazil, two maps of central America, Colombia, Venezuela, and Antarctica/Tierra del Fuego (notable as one of the earliest maps of Antarctica) and eight important maps of North America. In addition to the large double-page maps there are also four small maps on one double-page sheet in Magini's supplement showing the East Indies, Japan, China and the Philippines. Philip Burden gives full details of the American maps in his The Mapping of North America . 1. Conibas Regio. Burden 100 ("the first printed map of present day central Canada"). 3rd state of 3, with Higuater reading. 2. Estotilandia et Laboratoris Terra. Burden 101, 1st and only state. 3. Nova Francia et Canada. Burden 102 (the first map "to use Canada in its title, and the first to concentrate on the river and Gulf of St. Lawrence"). 2nd state of 2, with date 1597 removed. 4. Norumbega et Virginia. Burden 103 ("only the second [map] to use Virginia in the title). 2nd state of 3, with date removed but latitude mark reading 30 instead of 39 at left side. 5. Florida et Apalche. Burden 104. 1st and only state. 6. Hispania Nova. Burden 105 ("takes in all of present day southern Texas"). 1st and only state. 7. Granata Nova et California. Burden 106 ("the first printed map devoted to California and the south-west of the present day United States"). 1st and only state. 8. Limes Occidentis Quiuira et Anian. Burden 107. 2nd state of 2, with date removed. The map titled Floride et Apalche is of particular note. Largely derived from a map by Ortelius, the source for both maps was the Spanish geographer Geronimo Chaves. "Privy to all of the official reports of the Spanish explorers, Chaves's map recorded the discoveries of Cabeza de Vaca, de Soto, and Moscoso . The Chaves map published by Ortelius was, therefore, one of the earliest printed maps of the territory based on actual observations, and its reproduction in Wytfliet's popular work helped to correct the previous imaginary concepts of the area" (Martin & Martin). Nordenskiold 2: 310; Phillips Atlases 4459; Sabin 105701; Martin & Martin, Maps of Texas and the Southwest , p. 75, plate 6.

        Untitled plan of Jerusalem.]

      1611 - Hanover, Christian Wechelius, 1611. 195 x 260mm. Plan of ancient Jerusalem and surrounding country as far as Bethany, as drawn by Pietro Vesconte (fl. 1310-30) for Marino Sanudo's 'Liber Secretorum Fidelibus de Crucis' c.1320. This manuscript work was presented to Pope Clement V to encourage a new crusade. This engraving was the first time that the original map was published, retaining the original's lack of a conventional single reading view. Thus the letters, buildings and palm trees are drawn at random angles. LAOR: 1145.
