      appresso Giacomo Sarzina,, in Venetia, 1611 - In-4° (218x165mm), pp. (16), 238, (2), 63, (1), bella legatura coeva in piena pergamena con titolo calligrafato in antico al dorso. Due frontespizi, uno per la "Gerusalemme" e uno per i "Cinque Canti" di Camillo Camilli, con marca tipografica allegorica (figura femminile a cavalcioni di una salamandra), 4 vignette xilografiche di Gaspare Grispoldi, 31 capilettera figurati, testatine, finali e iniziali decorate in xilografia. Discorso introduttivo di Filippo Pigafeta. Bellissimo esemplare. In fine sono allegate 3 pp. manoscritte ottocentesche con trascrizioni di versi tassiani. Rara edizione secentesca veneziana del capolavoro del Tasso. "Il poema fu composto in gran parte negli anni 1570-1575 alla Corte di Ferrara, ma pubblicato contro la volontà dell'autore, chiuso nell'ospedale di Sant'Anna, soltanto nel 1580, col titolo "Il Goffredo", incompiuto, e in più autentica lezione e col titolo rimasto definitivo (che non è del Tasso ma dell'editore), nel 1581" (Mario Fubini, in Diz. Bompiani d. Opere, III, p. 587). 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."

        Glamorgan Shyre With the situations of the cheife towne Cardyff and ancient Landaffe described./Cardyfe(inset)/Landaffe(inset)

      London - Engraving with extraordinary original hand color. Sheet size: 18 1/4 x 21 3/4". Inventory#: p258pmat. From the Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine. Published 1611-12. The Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine was the first complete atlas of the British Isles ever produced, containing 67 maps of the counties of England, Wales and Ireland, together with maps of the Isles of Wight and Man and also the Channel Islands. This intricately detailed map is a prime example of Speed's particular style and talent. The uncolored editions of Speed's maps are classic and highly sought after, as they reflect the true quality of Speed's work unhindered by colorists. The color on many Speed maps was generally applied years after they were produced, occasionally by private collectors. 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.

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.

        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).

        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.

This copy with "Visions of the Worlds Vanitie," "The Visions of Bellay," and "The Visions of Petrarch" bound between "The Ruines of Time" and "The Teares of the Muses." Considered within the complicated publication history of the first collected edition of Spenser's works, this selection from the first folio edition represents the earliest folio editions of Dapnhaida and Complaints, first published as quartos in 1591. Books I-III of The Faerie Queene were first published in 1590 by William Posonby, who also published Books IV-VI in 1596. When he died in 1599, Spenser left the poem unfinished with only a fraction of Book VII completed. A decade later in 1609, Matthew Lownes published the first folio edition of Books I-VI of The Fearie Queen along with the unfinished Book VII, now known as the Cantos of Mutabilitie. In 1611, Lownes issued the first collected edition of Spenser's works in a folio format, including The Faerie Queene, The Shepheards Calendar, and Spenser's smaller texts. For the first folio edition, Lownes used his leftover sheets from the 1609 Faerie Queen and printed the additional sections separately, and reprinted each on an as needed basis. Accordingly, nearly all copies of the 1611 collected works are mixed-issue, with different sections printed at different times, as evidenced by F.R. Johnson's 1933 Critical Bibliography of the Works of Edmund Spenser. Additionally, many of the sections have their own title pages, so many copies often have conflicting publication dates throughout, and complicating issue points for different editions. The Faerie Queene is an incomplete epic allegorical poem written in honor of Queen Elizabeth I, who is symbolically represented as the title character. Spenser envisioned the work completed in twelve parts, with each section describing a different member of the Faerie Queens' court, each of whom referred to an actual member of Queen Elizabeth's court. Just as Virgil created a history for Rome by connecting it to Ancient Greece in the Aeneid, Spenser lauded the reign of the Tudor Family by linking their ancestry to King Arthur. Daphnaida and Complaints are among Spenser's shorter poems and laden with themes of mourning and lamentation. Specifically, Daphnaida is a narrative elegy for Douglas Howard, the late first wife of poet Sir Arthur Gorges, and Complaints is. Hard Cover. Very Good.

        An Epistle to the Right Honourable Richard Lord Visc. Cobham

      Printed for Lawton Gilliver. First edition.. Some slight scuffing to the binding; a handsome copy.. Griffith 329; Rothschild 1611; NCBEL II, 507. Folio, 20th century red half straight-grained morocco, red cloth sides, gilt rules and lettering. Half-title and leaf of ads present. An epistle dedicated to Sir Richard Temple, Lord Cobham (1675-1749), a friend of Pope who had been disgraced by Walpole.

        The Holy Bible, Conteyning the Old Testament, and the New:

      London: Robert Barker,, 1611?"13. Newly translated out of the Originall Tongues: and with the former Translations diligently compared and revised ... by his Maiesties speciall Commandement. Appointed to be read in Churches. Folio (410 × 260 mm), 752 leaves, complete. Recased in contemporary dark calf, spine gilt in compartments, later red morocco label to style. Text in double columns, black letter, letterpress divisional title within elaborate woodcut borders, woodcut initial capitals, vignettes, folding map. General title inlaid, (genealogies) A2, (NT) S1, S6, U3-4, Z1-2, Aa1-3 and Aa5-6 remargined, repairs to (prelims) A2-3, (OT) B6, Pp4-5, Eee4, Ggg2, Iii6, Zzzz5, (NT) T1, loss to map at right margin. Several leaves evidently supplied from other copies including (genealogies) A4-B2, B5-C6, map, (NT) S1-6, T2, and Z1-Aa6. Contemporary manuscript notes and pen trials, including the name William Toutt in a Jacobean court hand and "Ashchurche Booke" on A3r. Some small holes, tears, and abrasions, spotting and browning, nevertheless a good copy, with generous margins. Second folio edition of the King James Bible, with the reading "...and she went into the citie" at Ruth 3:15 ?" hence the "She" Bible. This edition has the error of "Judas" for "Jesus" at Matthew 26:36, which is here corrected by a pasted slip. It is believed that most of this edition was printed in 1611, but publication was delayed until 1613 (the latter date being most commonly found on the title page). About one third of the sheets exist in two different states, suggesting that Barker engaged in a significant amount of reprinting between 1611 and final publication. The reason for this has not been established. The King James Bible is often described as the greatest literary work created by a committee. The work was divided between 50 or so scholars divided into six groups, two each at Westminster, Cambridge, and Oxford respectively. The companies seem to have been intentionally composed of men not only with diverse qualifications but also of varying religious convictions. To help with the work of revision, 40 unbound copies of the Bishops' Bible, which was used as the foundation text, were supplied to the group, at a cost of £1 16s. 8d. each. The stately rhythms and simple but elevated prose style of this translation, somewhat archaic from the outset, have permanently imbued the English language with gravitas and a rich stock of universally recognisable phrases. Thomas Babington Macaulay in 1828 called it "a book which, if everything else in our language should perish, would alone suffice to show the whole extent of its beauty and power" (McGrath, 301).

Lexikon für Theologie und Kirche, Freiburg i.Br., Herder, 1932 (2e herz.), IV, p. 53 'Called in his own time 'the Portugese Aristotle', Pedro de Fonseca' was a sixteenth-century Jesuit philosopher and theologian. Schooled as a Thomist, Fonseca was a master of the Greek, Arabic and scholastic traditions, which enabled him to pursue his own independent line on various issues dealt with by Aquinas and Aristotle. (...) His chief accomplishments were in logic and metaphysics. He authored two very important and widely used works: a clear, comprehensive and systematic textbook in logic 'Institutionum dialecticarum libri octo' (Eight books of dialectical instructions) and an edition of Aristotle's Metaphysics with translation plus explanation and commentary. A third shorter work of introduction to logic (Isagoge philosophica) was also influential. The Institutionum dialecticarum was published at Lisbon in 1564 and re-edited fifty-two more times by 1625. It was adopted as a textbook, especially by the Jesuits, throughout Europe, America and the Far East. The second work was a much shorter Isagoge philosophica (Philosophical introduction), which was published initially in 1591 ad re-edited eighteen times up to 1623. More than a simple commentary on the Isagoge of Porphyry, Fonseca's book was a new introduction to the Organon of Aristotle'. http://compossivel.wordpress.com/2008/12/09/pedro-da-fonseca/

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 on the one hand Venice and the United Provinces, and Habsburg and Spain on the other. The pamphlet includes an anti-Venetian Latin oration given in Rome by the French diplomat Louis Hélian in 1510. With library label pasted on verso front cover, library labels pasted on spine.

      Franckfurt am Mayn, Gedruckt durch Johann Bringern, In Verlegung Jonas Rosen, 1611.. Folio. Schöner ganzseitiger Titelkupfer in Rot-Schwarz-Druck, (18), 291 gezählte Blätter, mit einem ganzseitigen Holzschnitt, darstellend eine Allegorie der Iustitia im Hintergrund Ansicht der Stadt Frankfurt am Main. Zeitgenössischer Lederband mit Rückenvergoldung auf sechs Bünden geheftet am Rücken etwas eingerissen.. Erste umfassende deutsche Stadtrechtsreformation im Geist des Jus Romanum! Die bedeutendste legislatorische Arbeit des 16. Jahrhunderts ist die Frankfurter Stadtrechstreformation von 1578. Verfasser ist der berühmte Frankfurter Jurist Johannes FICHARD (1512 - 1581). Fichard, ein Schüler von Ulrich Zasius und Bonifacius Amerbach, war nach vollendetem Studium zunächst Advokat am Reichskammergericht, später Stadtadvokat und Syndicus der Stadt Frankfurt am Main. Die Reformation des Frankfurter Stadtrechts ist eine originäre gesetzgeberi- sche Leistung von Fichard, keine Kompilation aus anderen gesetzeswerken, sondern ein Versuch einer Kodifikation aus einem Guße. Im Auftrag der Stadt Frankfurt am Main errstellt, sucht die Reformation in seinen Grundlagen das römische Recht umzusetze, zieht einheimische Quellen nur noch gelegentlich heran. Mit dieser Reformation ist dem römischen Recht der große Durchbruch auf gesetzgeberischer Ebene in Deutschland gelungen. Der ganze süddeutsche Raum konnte sich dem Einfluß dieser Reformation nicht mehr entziehen. Das Gesetzbuch zählt bis zum Auftreten des Naturrechts und den großen Vernunft- rechtskodifikationen im 18. Jahrhundert zu den bedeutendsten in Deutschland. Grundlegend für die Erfoschung dieses Gesetzeswerkes war Helmut Coing.

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

      Valencia: , 1611. A fundamental work on the progress of the Dominican Order in Ethiopia, a splendid armorial binding and important provenance. 1611. Valencia. Juan Chrysostomo Garriz. In 4to (204 mm x 142 mm). 8 ff. + 410 + 3 ff. Near contemporary calf, boards with arms of Chancelier Pierre Seguier, on boards, his cipher on spine, rebacked preserving spine; spine flat, tooled in gilt with the said cipher, morocco lettering piece, some rubbing and edge-worn. A splendid copy extremely clean and bright, light uniform toning; manuscript ownership inscription to title page "Stephanus Baluzius Tutelensis".First edition. A seminal work on the progress of the Orden de Predicadores (Ordo Praedicatorum), known as the Dominican Order, in Ethiopia; vast in details regarding the Saints, martyrs and missionaries active in the region, their experiences, hardships, evangelizing and settling. The work is very well printed, and is illustrated with a few woodcuts in text, some of allegorical nature. The Dominicans are probably most famous for their active participation in the Holy Inquisition; their efforts to counteract the heresy in Ethiopia and introduce the Catholic faith however, are to be counted amongst the most important to have been carried out.Important provenance: the arms on boards are of Chancelier Pierre Seguier, Comte de Gien Duc de Villemor (1588 ? 1672); ownership inscription to title page "Stephanus Baluzius Tutelensis", also known as Etienne Baluze (1630 ? 1718), a French scholar: he worked as secretary to Pierre de Marca Archbishop of Toulouse, later with Colbert, who appointed him to manage his vast library.Rare, we can trace only one copy ?this one- sold in 50 years, at Sotheby?s, 1964.Olivier, 271(4). Palau, 345993. Salva, 3417.

An account by John Cartwright of his travels in the Middle East in the early 17th century. An English preacher (also identified on the title page as a "sometimes student in Magdalen College in Oxford"), the author accompanied John Mildenhall, the English merchant and traveller, on his journey from Aleppo to Kashan in Persia. "After separating from Mildenhall, Cartwright proceeded to Esfahan and continued to travel widely in the Middle East. The account of his journeys is one of the most valuable of the period" (Howgego). In addition to describing the numerous places on his various itineraries, Cartwright also writes of the routes in use, products of note, and the potentials for commerce. The text also includes a brief account of the experiences of Anthony Sherley, an English adventurer whose own account of Persia was not published until 1613. A very rare book, one of the earliest English narratives of travel in the Near East. - Title page slightly soiled. Bottom edge closely trimmed throughout, affecting numerous catchwords and signature marks. Light age-toning throughout. A few contemporary ink marks on pages 64 and 65.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("B. Guarini").

      Rom, 24. XII. 1611.. 2 SS. auf Doppelblatt. Gr.-4to.. An einen hochgestellten Herrn wegen der Veranstaltung eines Pferderennens oder eines Turniers zu Ehren des spanischen Botschafters in Rom: "[...] perche ho molto ben inteso il suo disid[eri]o m'ingegnero di trattare con quel sig[no]re in modo che V[ostra] S[ignoria] Ill[ustrissi]ma resti servita. Il che faro avvanti la partita del pross[im]o corriere di mercoledi per poterle significar il ritratto. Mi faro anche nascer occasione di divolgar con decoro et senza affettazione il concetto ch'ella mi scrisse, et farello tanto piu volontieri, quanto a me pare che concerna la reputazione di Lei perche cose passate, et per la fama che n'era gia discolpata. Quanto al pubblicar la disfida, a me pare che ci dobbiam governare secondo quello che disporra il s[igno]r Ambasciatore, mass[imamen]te faccendo ella proffessione di havere per honore di S[ua] Ecc[ellenz]a et della s[igno]ra Ambasciatrice intrapreso il Torneo. Nel che non voglio restar di dirli, che stante questo pens[ier]o sara necess[ar]io far una macchina che habbia intenzione di honorarli loro Ca[sat]o[?] et pero in una delle quattro bisognera mutar pensiero, et soggetto, et trovar cosa che porga manifesta occ[asio]ne di farlo credere che sia fatto per honorargli. Al rimanente della sua lettera non ho che dire senza che quanto ella comandera saro pronto di eseguire [...] Passero ancora col debito silenzio come comanda il particolare della s[igno]ra Duchessa [...]". - Bei der zuletzt erwähnten "Duchessa" wird es sich wohl um wohl Margherita Gonzaga, die Witwe Alfonsos II. d'Este, Herzogs von Ferrara, gehandelt haben. - Leicht gebräunt; von größter Seltenheit.
