Letterpress title: "Three Crude Veines are Present in This Booke...". With errata leaf and apology for errata leaf; separate title for "Posthuma fragmenta poematum georgii coryati". 4to (209 x 145 mm). The First Grand Tour, One of the Great English Literary Curiosities. Coryate (1577?-1617), son of the rector at Odcombe, Somerset, was educated at Oxford but left without taking a degree and found a position in the house of Henry, Prince of Wales, as something of an unofficial court jester. In 1608 he undertook a journey across the continent, much of it by foot, which established precedence for the Grand Tour which became a matter of ritual for the well-to-do British in generations to come. Coryate's idiosyncratic account remains an important work of early English literature; "intended to encourage courtiers and gallants to enrich their minds by continental travel, [it] contains illustrations, historical data, architectural descriptions, local customs, prices, exchange rates, and food and drink" (ODNB). "There probably has never been another such combination of learning and unconscious buffoonery as is here set forth. Coryate was a serious and pedantic traveller who in five months toilsome travel wandered, mostly on foot, over a large part (by his own reckoning 1,975 miles) of western Europe. His adventures probably appeared to his contemporaries as more ridiculous than exciting, but at this remove his chronicle by its very earnestness provides an account of the chief cities of early seventeenth century Europe which is at least as valuable as it is amusing" (Pforzheimer). Coryate's narrative is preceded by an impressive number of panegyrics by London literati, including Jonson, Chapman, Donne, Campion, Harington, Drayton, and many others. These were solicited by Corayte probably as a way of demonstrating to potential booksellers that there would be ample interest in the work. The panegyrics, however, mock as much as (or more than) they pay tribute, and "during the winter of 1610-1611, this baiting of Coryate was apparently the talk of all literary London" (ibid). The present copy is complete, with the errata leaf, a leaf preceding and apologizing for the errata leaf, and all plates and illustrations. "Perfect copies with the plates intact are not common" (Pforzheimer) "In May 1608 Coryate sailed from Dover to Calais and made his way to Paris, which he found even filthier and smellier than London. At Fontainebleau he was befriended by members of Henri IV's garde écossaise and saw more of the royal household than would normally have been permitted to chance visitors. He journeyed on to Lyons, through Savoy to Turin, Milan, Mantua, and Padua. His description of how Italians shielded themselves from the sun resulted in apparently the first mention of 'umbrella' in English literature. Table forks, almost unknown in England, were in general use in Italy; Coryate acquired one, imitated the Italian fashion of eating and continued to do so frequently when he came home. "Arriving in Venice on 24 June 1608 Coryate presented two letters of introduction to the English ambassador, Sir Henry Wotton, who, perhaps impressed by the letter which mentioned that Coryate was remotely related to the earl of Essex, did him many kindnesses. These included rescuing him in the ambassadorial gondola from a threatening crowd of Jews who objected to Coryate preaching Christianity to their rabbi. Later he was to risk reprisals for antipathy to Roman Catholic rites and, during his Eastern travels, for proclaiming against Islam. After six weeks of intensive quest and recording of information, he left Venice on 7 August by boat to Padua, then walked to Vicenza, Verona, and Bergamo. "Coryate arrived in Zürich by boat and reached Basel on foot at the end of August. While in Switzerland he heard the story of William Tell. Coryate's admirable rendering appears to be the earliest in English. Arriving in Strasbourg by boat he then got lost, alone and on foot, in the Black Forest, but the sole threat of armed violence experienced in Europe was from a German peasant, who resented Coryate picking grapes from a vineyard. He was hospitably received in Heidelberg and walked to Mainz. After a detour to visit Frankfurt's fair he sailed down the Rhine, with a brief stop at Cologne, and continued by water down what was the temporary truce line between the armies of Spain and the United Provinces. After calling on the English merchants established at Middelburg he was entertained by the English garrison at Flushing. Thence he embarked on 1 October and landed in London on 3 October 1608. With the rector's permission Coryate hung his shoes in Odcombe church" (ODNB). Pforzheimer 218; STC 5208

        Castilla avrifera cvm vicinis provinciis

      1611 - Map. Copper-plate engraving. Image measures 9 x 11.5". Sheet measures 11.25 x 14.5" This rare map of Colombia shows the northern segment of the country, covering the coastline as it extends from the Caribbean Sea south the Andes Mountains. Panama, also included, runs into the title cartouche, which symbolically demarcates the depicted South American regions from unseen Central America. The map primarily renders forts as they have sprouted up along the main rivers. It is a later version of a map first published in Wytfliet's 1597 atlas, which contains some of the first printed maps of the New World as well as a history of the voyages of Columbus, Pizarro, Verrazano and other explorers. The map is in very good condition with wide margins. Some wormholes in margin not affecting the image. Cornelius Wytfliet (c. 1550--1597) was a Belgian cartographer who dedicated his work to Spain. He used the writings of both historians and contemporary geographers to render the geography natural history, and European discovery of the Americas. This map is a fine example of his work.

        Memorial: Cinquenta meses ha que estoy. [Incipit:] Señor. El Capitan Pedro Fernandez de Quirós. Cincuenta meses ha que estoy en esta Corte, suplicando a V[uestra] M[agestad] se sirva mandar, me vaya a poblar las tierras que V[uestra] M[agestad] me mandò descubrir... // ... [Explicit:] Esta es mi justicia, esta pido a V[uestra] M[agestad] cincuenta meses ha.

      Madrid: 7 December, 1611. Folio, 303 x 203 mm., four leaves, foliated [1]-3 (six pages of printed text, the final leaf blank); woodcut initial "E" on the first leaf. Quirós' Memorial of 1611 One of the greatest voyage rarities: an original Quirós presentation memorial. As Carlos Sanz has written, "Apart from Columbus' Letter announcing his arrival in the Indies (America) [there is] no printed document that has counted for so much in the history of discovery and navigation... "The era of the great geographical discoveries, opened with Columbus' first transatlantic voyage, closed with those announced in the Quirós Memorial. Two great oceans (the Atlantic and the Pacific), an immense continent (America), the Philippine Islands and finally Australia are the achievements to be put to the account of this great maritime adventure, the greatest known to the centuries...".The Quirós Presentation Memorials represent the earliest printed record of discovery and plans for settlement of a Southern Continent, the discoveries that Quirós named "Austrialia del Espíritu Santo". He prepared a series of proposals, presenting them to King Philip III of Spain and his councils as Memorials between 1607 and 1614. Some of the memorials were only prepared in manuscript; just 14 were printed for presentation, at Quirós' own expense. These fourteen Presentation Memorials form a progression of statements describing the discoveries made by Quirós and Mendaña of a Southern Continent, and petition the King to support an expedition of further discovery and colonisation there, to settle the lands for Spain and Christianity. Each Memorial further argues Quirós' case: they do not, as is often misunderstood, simply repeat the same argument. This misconception may have been caused by the fact that the text of just one of the Memorials is seen almost exclusively in all the very many subsequent publications and dissemination, that of the so-called "Eighth Memorial", the single Memorial whose text leaked outside Spanish court circles in 1612 and was quickly and widely disseminated. Its influence was immense: as Alexander Dalrymple observed of Quirós in 1770, 'The discovery of the Southern Continent, whenever, and by whomsoever it may be completely effected, is in justice due to this immortal name'.This is the eleventh in the series of 14 such Presentation Memorials now identified. In it Quirós stresses that he has now spent fifty months petitioning at court. He summarises the arguments for colonising the southern land and asks for a speedy decision as the annual fleet will sail shortly. Four other copies are known: the two located by Kelly (Archive of the Indies and Dixson Library Sydney), and two copies known to be privately owned. This example is particularly interesting for containing a four-line note in ink on the blank final leaf specifically addressing this copy: Memorial del capitan quiros dado al Consejo (??) de estacaman (??) dado feste [final four words indecipherable].The pre-eminent collection of Quirós Presentation Memorials is in the Mitchell and Dixson Libraries within the State Library of New South Wales where altogether 13 of the 14 known Memorials are held. When David Scott Mitchell acquired, a century ago, the entire collection of Alfred Lee (over 10,000 books, paintings, pamphlets, prints and drawings) he did so despite a duplication rate estimated at over 90%, acknowledging that the purchase was made solely in order to acquire Banks' Endeavour Journal and two Quirós Presentation Memorials. His fellow collector Sir William Dixson shared the same passion, acquiring over his lifetime eight of the Presentation Memorials, paying - according to Dunn - between £650 and £1000 for each of them: these were among the highest prices for any voyage material in the inter- and immediately post-war period, and demonstrate the extent to which the Memorials have always been valued. The other potent indicator of rarity is that the National Library of Australia holds just a single Quirós Presentation Memorial, and that acquired in recent times. Although they have only been collecting as a separate institution since 1960, the national collection does include much of the original Commonwealth Parliamentary Library, as well as Ferguson's famous collection of Australiana. Housed in solander box.

        Cristo e l’Adultera

      1611 - Acquaforte e bulino, circa 1611, firmata in lastra. Magnifiche prove, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con sottili margini, in eccellente stato di conservazione. Opere tratte dal De excellentia et nobilitate delineationis libri duo, pubblicato nel 1611. Nato a Venezia da una famiglia dalla spiccata indole artistica, fu subito iniziato agli studi pittorici sulle orme dello zio del padre, Palma il Vecchio e del fratello della madre, Bonifacio de' Pitati. Studiò e subì l'influenza di Raffaello e Tintoretto, eseguì varie copie di Tiziano, suo vero maestro, col quale in seguito collaborò portandone anche a termine il celebre dipinto La Pietà. Si formò nel periodo della scuola veneta e del manierismo romano, che ebbe modo di apprendere durante i quattro anni del suo soggiorno romano. L'inizio della sua produzione artistica è datata verso il 1565. Dal punto di vista grafico deve la sua fortuna all’incontro con l’editore ed incisore Giacomo Franco, figlio naturale di Battista Franco. L’opera grafica è pressoché raccolta, nel 1611, nel De excellentia et nobilitate delineationis libri duo, edito dal Franco. Il trattato comprende studi anatomici ad acquaforte e a bulino incisi da Jacopo Palma, o derivati da suoi disegni e, nel secondo libro, studi di cammei, rilievi, decorazione "all'antica", incisi dal Battista Franco e probabilmente ritoccati dal figlio. Bibliografia: Bartsch XVI, 16 e 20; S. Mason Rinaldi, Palma il Giovane. L'opera completa, pp. 46, 58, 101, 105. Dimensioni 145x205 Etching and engraving, 1611 circa, signed on plate. Magnificent work, printed on contemporary laid paper with thin margins, in excellent condition. From the De excellentia et nobilitate delineationis libri duo, published in 1611. Belonging to an artistic family, Palma was immediately sent to be trained as a painter like his father’s uncle, Palma the Elder and his mother’s brother, Bonifacio de' Pitati. The influence of Raphael and Tintoretto was very strong during his training; he realized many copies after Titian, his real master, with whom he worked also on the famous painting La Pietà. He developed his artistic skills at the Venetian school and in Rome, where he lived for four years and came to know the Mannerism. His personal artistic production started in 1565. From a graphic point of view, Palma owes his fortune to the publisher Giacomo Franco, son of Battista Franco. His graphic work is all collected in his De excellentia et nobilitate delineationis libri duo, 1611, published by Franco. The treatise includes some anatomic studies realized with etching and engraving carved by Jacopo Palma and, in the second book, studies of cameos, reliefs, old style decorations, engraved by Battista Franco and probably revised by his son. Bartsch XVI, 16 e 20; S. Mason Rinaldi, Palma il Giovane. L'opera completa, pp. 46, 58, 101, 105. Dimensioni 168x110 Dimensioni [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        L'histoire des choses plus mémorables advenues tant ès Indes Orientales, qu'autres pays de la descouverte des Portugais. En l'establissement et progrèz de la Foy chréstienne et catholique. Et principalement de ce que les religieux de la Compagnie de Jésus

      Jean Veruliet, Valencia 1611 - 977 pp. + 53 pp of tables, title printed in red & black, contemporary hand written text on front endpaper, green binding, stamped on the front and at the back with a fleur de lys design, gilt decorated spine, all edges gilt, Provenance: Bookplate from the Library of Merlin d’Estreux de Beaugrenier et Lefrancq. Printed copy by William River in Arras with a bookplate manuscript Valenciennes followed by a long commentary on the following warning and an ex-dono manuscript on the title. The rare book forms the second part of the book Jarric begun in 1608 and completed in 1614. It covers the areas of Congo, Angola, Kingdom of Monomatapa, Ethiopia, Brazil, Hormuz and China. The first edition appeared between 1608-1614 three parts in three volumes. Du Jarric's historical compilation, principally an account of Jesuit missionary work in Portuguese possessions, and long regarded as EXTREMELY RARE. Sabin writes: 'Only three complete copies of this interesting, elaborate, and valuable work appear to have occured for sale, one of which was in the curious collection of the late Robert Lang, who had written in it, "The third volume of this work is very scarce, and although the two first volumes are found amongst collections of scarce voyages, I never saw or heard of but one other copy of the third volume, which is in the library of Lord Bute at Luton'. ABPC does not record any copy selling at auction in the past three decades. Borba de Moraes I, p. 358, noting the existence of at least one copy with a frontispiece in volume one. Pierre de Jarric (1566 –1617) was a French Catholic missionary writer from Toulouse. He entered the Society of Jesus on 8 December 1582 and taught philosophy and moral theology at Bordeaux for many years. Although he desired to join the missionaries of his order; his wish was not fulfilled. Instead, he dedicated himself to writing on their behalf. The result was Histoire des choses plus memorables advenues tant ès Indes orientales, que autres païs de la descouverte des Portugois, which appeared in three parts: the second part appeared in 1610 and the third in 1614. Jarric's work gives a comprehensive picture of the missionary enterprises of the Jesuits until 1610, chiefly within the sphere of Portuguese interests. It contains much valuable data on colonial history, geography, and ethnography, taken from Spanish and Portuguese reports, and from the works of Father Luis de Guzman (Hist. de las Missiones que han hecho los religiosos de la Compañia de Jesús), and of Father Ferdinand Guerreiro (Relação Annal das cousas que fizeram os Padres da companhia de Jesus na India e Japão, Brazil, Angola, Cabo Verde, Guiné). By dedicating the second part to King Louis XIII, Jarric hoped to encourage the French King to imitate Spain and Portugal in their colonization efforts. His work was frequently reprinted and widely circulated, particularly after it was translated into Latin by Martino Martinez III around 1615. Jarric died in Saintes two years later.

Hastily gobled up in five moneths travels … newly digested in the hungry aire of Odcombe in the county of Somerset, and now dispersed to the nourishment of the travelling members of this kingdome. Quarto (216 × 152 mm). Late 19th-century pinkish brown morocco by F.

With the bookplate of Albert Ehrman, the Broxbourne Library. Front joint tender, inner hinge restored, some soiling on letterpress title and preliminaries, mended tear in leaf R8 entering but not obscuring text, small rust hole in lower margin of leaf Ee8, quires R through T slightly shaken, a very good copy. First edition. Thomas Coryate (1577?–1617), who had been an unofficial court jester in the household of Henry, prince of Wales, made a tour, often on foot, from London to Venice and back again, finally hanging up his shoes in Odcombe church. His narrative has many points of historical interest. His description of how Italians shielded themselves from the sun resulted in what is thought to be the first mention of "umbrella" in English literature. He acquired a table fork, almost unknown in England, and imitated the Italian fashion of eating. While in Switzerland he heard the story of William Tell, and his admirable rendering is cited as the earliest in English. The book is also celebrated for its selection of mock-panegyric verses by the most illustrious authors of the day, including Jonson, Chapman, Donne, Campion, Harington, Drayton and others.

Einträge zur Provenienz, Gelenke fachmännisch restauriert, Bänder zum Schließen fehlen, Gbrsp. - Nach Besuch einer Klosterschule in Arras 1540-42 und einer Lateinschule in Gent 1543 bis 1546 studierte Clusius, (1526 - 1609), Jus in Löwen 1546-48 (Licentiat jur. 1548) und in Marburg 1548/49, wo ihn Hyperius für die Idee der Reformation gewann, ging 1549 nach Wittenberg und gab auf Anraten Melanchthons das Rechtsstudium auf. Medizinstudent in Montpellier 1551-54, half er seinem Lehrer G. Rodelet bei der Redigierung seines Fischbuches. Nach einem Aufenthalt in den Südniederlanden 1555-60 studierte er 1560-62 in Paris; an der Bewegung der Hugenotten beteiligt, flüchtete er 1562 mit dem jungen Breslauer Thomas Rehdiger (1540-76), dessen Mentor er 1561-63 war, nach Löwen, bereiste 1564/65 mit dem Augsburger Bankierssohn Jakob Fugger Spanien und Portugal, hielt sich dann bei Freunden in Brügge 1565-67 und Mecheln 1567-73 auf und wurde 1573 von Maximilian II. nach Wien berufen, um dort einen Medizinalkräutergarten einzurichten. Von Rudolf II. auf Betreiben katholischer Kreise 1577 seines Amtes enthoben, blieb er dennoch in Wien und setzte seine botanischen Wanderungen fort, die ihn vor allem durch Niederösterreich, das Burgenland und Südwest-Ungarn führten, unterstützt durch Balthasar von Batthyány, auf dessen Besitzungen in Güssing und Schlaining er oft verweilte. 1588 ging Clusius, dem Landgraf Wilhelm IV. von Hessen ein jährliches Subsidium ausgesetzt hatte, nach Frankfurt, von wo er 1593 einem Ruf an die Universität Leiden folgte. Viermal war Clusius auch in England (1561, 1571, 1579, 1580). - Seine Werke, in denen erstmals nicht mehr die Nützlichkeit der Pflanzen im Mittelpunkt steht, zeichnen sich durch exakte Angaben und viele, oft überraschende Details bei den Artbeschreibungen aus und zeigen schon Ansätze einer binären Nomenklatur mit gelegentlicher Beifügung des Namens des Autors. Die Arbeiten über die iberische und über die österreichisch-ungarische Pflanzenwelt - für diese Gebiete durch mehr als 100 Jahre maßgebend - sind die ersten größeren Länderfloren überhaupt. Botanische Exkursionen, so unter anderem auf den Ötscher und Schneeberg, stempeln Clusius zum ersten Erschließer der Alpenflora, die er auch in seinem Wiener Garten zog und beobachtete. Auf alpine Primeln, die Clusius 1582 nach Holland sandte, gehen unsere heutigen Gartenprimeln mit ihren zahllosen Varietäten zurück, wie überhaupt Wien durch ihn zum Zentrum wurde, von dem aus die verschiedensten Gartenblumen, wie Tulpen, Narzissen und Hyazinthen, ihren Weg zur Eroberung der europäischen Gärten antraten. Wien verdankt Clusius die erste Roßkastanie (1576) und die erste Kartoffel (1588); durch Sendungen an seine Korrespondenten leitete er die Verbreitung dieser beiden Pflanzen in weiten Teilen Europas ein. Übersetzungen verschiedenster Art, Landkarten und Beiträge zur Altertumskunde vervollständigen sein Lebenswerk. (DBE) - In den meisten Ausgaben fehlt der zweite Anhang nebst den Ergänzungen, der hier vorliegt. - Charles de l'Écluse, L'Escluse, or Carolus Clusius was a Flemish doctor and pioneer botanist, maybe the most influencal horticultists of the 16th century, as he laid the foundation of the Dutch tulip breeding and the bulb industry of today.

      1611. First Edition . CORYATE, Thomas. Coryats Crudities. Hastily gobled up in five Moneths travells… London: Printed by W[illiam] S[tansby, for the Author], 1611. Octavo, late-19th century full brown paneled morocco gilt, elaborately gilt-decorated spine, raised bands, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. $28,000.Rare first edition of the legendary traveler Thomas Coryate’s “lively and informative” account (Baugh et al., 623) of his prolific travels through the major cities of 17th-century Europe, “the first English handbook on continental travel,” long coveted by collectors, illustrated with six woodcut plates (two folding), handsomely bound by Bedford.“Thomas Coryate (1577?-1617) studied but did not take a degree at Oxford; [of small stature], he eventually he became a kind of jester in the court of James I, where his learning and wit brought him a small income….Coryate probably acquired some property after his father’s death, which allowed him to embark on a tour through Europe in 1608. He visited forty-five countries in five months and produced a journal of his travels…the first English handbook on continental travel” (Kaplan, The Merchant of Venice). Coryate traveled, by his reckoning, some 1,975 miles, most of which he covered by foot, Coryate found it difficult to find a publisher for his account, so “he applied to every person of eminence whom he knew, and many whom he can scarcely have known at all, to write commentary verses upon himself, his book, and his travels, and by his unwearied pertinacity and unblushing importunity contrived to get together the most extraordinary collection of testimonials which have ever been gathered in a single sheaf. More than sixty of the most brilliant and illustrious literati of the time [including Drayton, Chapman, Donne and Jonson, who wrote of Coryate “he is a great and bold carpenter of words”] were among the contributors to this strange farrago, the wits vying with one another in their attempts to produce mock heroic verses, turning Coryate to solemn ridicule. Ben Jonson undertook to edit these amusing panegyrics, which actually fill 108 quarto pages [of the book]… It was the first, and for long remained the only, handbook for continental travel” (DNB). “He had, and still has, a paradoxical reputation. On the one hand, he was a kind of comedian, a learned buffoon, a butt for courtly wits and poets like John Donne and Ben Jonson, who both knew him well. On the other hand, he was the immensely tough and courageous traveler, whose remarkable journeys through Europe and Asia were made almost entirely on foot….The Crudities gives an exhaustive account of his travels in Europe, but his long peregrinations in the East are more sparsely documented” (Charles Nicholl).In 1612, with the success of the Crudities, Coryate set out on even more ambitious journey, a 5000-mile trek by foot to India, where he died in 1617 of an illness in the port city Surat. “He is often credited with introducing the table fork to England, and his description of how the Italians shielded themselves from the sun resulted in the word ‘umbrella’ being introduced into English… This volume gives a vivid picture of life in Europe during the time; it is particularly important to music historians for giving extraordinary details of the activities of the Venetian School, one of the most famous and progressive contemporary musical movements in Europe” (View from the Bow). With all plates: elaborately engraved title page by William Hole (often lacking), full-page armorial woodcut (the plume of feathers of Henry, Prince of Wales, leaf b4v) and four more woodcut plates (including two folding); also with decorative woodcut head- and tailpieces and initials.

London: by H.L. for Mathew Lownes, 1611. Small folio, late 19th-century full dark brown morocco rebacked with original spin laid down, gilt centerpieces, raised bands, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. $12,000.First collected edition of Spenser's works. The important second issue, which includes ""Mother Hubberds Tale"" (officially suppressed in the first issue). Handsomely bound by Riviere.One of the great and lasting achievements of the Elizabethan era, The Faerie Queene reflects the remarkable intellectual progress of its age. To accommodate what was essentially a new kind of poetry Spenser invented a new rhyme scheme, the Spenserian stanza, into which he could cast this beautiful prose-poem. A number of the lines in The Faerie Queene are among the best-known and most lyrical in English, and as a whole it ranks as one of the finest long allegorical poems ever written. ""The only great poem that had been written in English since Chaucer died"" (DNB). Of Spenser, Robert Southey wrote, ""He is the great master of English versification— incomparably the greatest master in our language."" In addition to The Faerie Queen (complete with the ""Two Cantos of Mutabilitie""), this fine collection includes The Shepheards Calendar, ""Prosopopia. Or Mother Hubberds Tale,"" ""Letter to Sir Walter Raleigh,"" Colin Clouts Come Home Againe, Prothalamion, Amoretti and Spithalamion, Four Hymnes, Daplmaida, and Complaints, each bearing a separate title page. Text embellished with many fine woodcut vignettes, initials, head- and tailpieces. Second issue, with ""Mother Hubbard's Tale"" with title page dated 1613 and title page of the Second Part of The Faerie Queen dated 1613 as well. ""Mother Hubbard's Tale"" was omitted from all copies sold prior to the death of Sir Robert Cecil in 1612; it was thereafter inserted in the unsold copies of the 1609-11 issue. Publisher Lownes canceled the 1609 Faerie Queen title page and added 1611 editions of the remaining works. Without blank leaf Hh6 at the end of The Faerie Queen but with blank F4 at end of Shepheards Calendar. The eight-leaf signature containing the Letter to Raleigh and commendatory sonnets follows the general title page, as usual, but is here without the final leaf [¶8], also a blank. Pforzheimer 973. STC 23084. Bookplate. A few instances of ink underlining to text.Restoration to upper corner of title page, with a portion of the woodcut border supplied in neat pen facsimile.

With engraved title, 7 double-page engraved maps and plates, and 50 half-page maps and views in the text by Benjamin Wright. (6),292,(6),38,(4) pp.First edition. - One of the earliest descriptions of Amsterdam, its history and institutions. Of special importance are the accounts of Dutch explorations in the East-Indies and reports and of the attempts to find a North-East passage, including the account of the third voyage of Willem Barentsz. to Nova Zembla (1596-97) during which voyage Barendsz and his crew members were iced in and forced to winter over in Novaya Zemlya in a wooden cabin ('Het behouden Huis'). The map of the Polar regions illustrating the third voyage of Willem Barentsz. to Nova Zembla (1596-97) is also important as an Americanum in giving the results of Hudson's first two voyages (1607-1608) for the Muscovy Company of London. The appearance of the map by Hondius was doubtless the result of Hudson's employment by the Dutch East India Company in 1609. Pontanus also describes in detail the activities on the Amsterdam stock- and commodity markets, one of the earliest in the world and at that time the most important one. - (Age-browned).Tiele 876; Cat. NHSM I, p.344; Nijhoff-van Hattum 252; Sabin 64002; European-Americana 611/91.

        Le Procès criminel. Divisé en deux livres : le premier contenant les crimes : le second la forme de procéder aux matières criminelles. Le tout selon les loix civiles, & canoniques, arrests des cours souveraines, & ordonnances de nos roys.

      Chez Pierre Calles, A Rouen 1611 - 2 parties en 1 vol. in-12 de (16)-151-(1) pp. ; 167-(23) pp., veau brun, dos orné à nerfs, armes sur les plats, tranches jaspées (reliure de l'époque). Troisième édition après les deux premières éditions lyonnaises de 1607 et 1609. « Claude Lebrun de la Rochette (1560-1630) a été avocat à Villefranche-en-Beaujolais. Outre un très politique Portrait de Henri IV (Lyon, 1593, année de la cérémonie d'ajuration), il s'est tourné dans plusieurs essais, vers la théologie et la liturgie. Ce « criminaliste de sensibilité janséniste » (Carbasse), auteur de traités particuliers (dont un Antidote contre la Paillardise, Lyon, 1615) a surtout laissé l'ouvrage intitulé Le Procès civil et criminel publié une première fois à Lyon par Roussin en 1607 et réimprimé jusqu'en 166. Les procès civil et criminel se propose d'éclairer une vaste matière en liant la théorie et la pratique. Le premier volume est consacré au droit civil, le second au droit criminel ; ce dernier présente les différents crimes dont la source se trouve dans l'« oisiveté ». Un célèbre tableau synoptique rend compte, à partir de cette origine de la liaison et de la division des crimes. Il et suivi de la procédure criminelle où l'auteur évoque certaines de ses expériences, ne se satisfait pas de décrire les étapes du procès ( en joignant d'utiles formules), il expose aussi les règles de preuve issues du droit savant en sollicitant toutes les autres sources : c'et la principale originalité du livre. Dans un exposé assez bien construit, Lebrun utilise dans chaque développement les ressources de la casuistique. Peut-être inspirée de la Caroline, sa méthode consiste à essayer de combiner la présentation des règles de procédure en se reportant sans cesse au type de crime qu'il sa'agit de poursuivre. Ce sont par exemple les différents interrogatoires qui sont étudiés, chacun étant adapté à la nature spécifique d'un crime particulier. Mais sa conception ambigüe du concept de corps de délit, sa méditation sur le langage et les différenst témoignages, ses réflexions éparses sur le silence, ses notations sur la pluralité d'infractions ou la pluralité d'auteurs amènent à s'interroger avec plus d'insistance sur les réalités du droit, l'imaginaire sombre de l'auteur et ses approches plurielles et obsédabtes de l'âme et du corps. » (Arabeyre, Halpérin, Krynen, Dictionnaire historique des juristes français). Petites armes couronnées frappées sur les plats non identifiées.

Origineel Perkament, 4° (Boekblok plaatselijk gebruind, enkele vochtvlekken door het werk. Convoluut met 5 zeldzame, vroeg 17e-eeuwse werken van verschillende schrijvers, voornamelijk handelende over de leer van de predestinatie. Het eerste werk bevat een beschrijving van de leer van de predestinatie in de vorm van vragen en antwoorden, door de Franse gereformeerde predikant en proffessor te Heidelberg Daniel Toussain, of Tossanus, 1541-1602. Het tweede werk weerlegt de vijf artikelen van de remonstranten en werd bij de afsluiting van de Dordtse Synode uitgegeven als overzicht van de contraremonstrantse leer, deze vijfde druk is herzien door de Friese gereformeerde predikant Bouritius Sibema, ca. 1693-1636. Het derde werk is een zeldzaam werk van de contra-remonstrantse predikant Cornelius Geselius, of De Ghesel, ca.1580-1614. Geselius was fel calvinistisch en werd vanwege zijn leer in 1604 uit zijn ambt gezet, in dit werk verdedigt hij deze leer tegen die van de remonstranten -hierbij komt ook weer de predestinatie aan bod-. Begin 1614, even na het verschijnen van dit werk, overleed hij op jonge leeftijd. 'Geknakt en gebroken door wat zijn tegenstanders hem aandeden' zoals Geesink vermeld. Het vierde werk bevat het stadpunt omtrent de predestinatie van de bekende reformator Jean Calvin, of Johannes Calvijn, 1509-1564. Het vijfde werk is opgesteld door vier remonstrantse predikanten afkomstig uit Kampen, resp. Thomas Gosuinus, Johannes Schotlerus, Everardus Voscuilius en Assuerus Matthisius, welke de remonstrantse leer van de predestinatie verdedigen tegenover de 'Nieuwe Valscheijt'.

        Novissima et Accuratissima Leonis Belgici seu Septemdecim Regionum Descriptio. Auct: N.I. Visschero.

      Claes Jansz Visscher, [1611-1621 or later]., Amsterdam, - The Truce Map Hand-coloured engraved map, a few minor areas of loss skilfully repaired in facsimile. The signing of the Twelve Year Truce in 1609, by the Dutch Republic, the Southern Netherlands and Hapsburg Spain, proved a catalyst for another version of the Leo Belgicus. In around 1611, Claes Janszoon Visscher published his ?ÄòBestandskaart?Äô or ?ÄòTruce Map?Äô - ?Äúone of the peaks of 17th century cartography?Äù (van der Heijden) ?Äì a lion at rest in a sitting position, his right paw on the hilt of a lowered sword. The map is replete with allusions to the fruits of peace: to the right of the lion, war ?Äì personified by a knight in a full suit of armour ?Äì is shown asleep, and to the left personifications of North and South are shown seated together with ?Äòd?ÄôOude Twist?Äô (the old rancour) buried under foot. A cherub pours the sweet nectar of the ?ÄòBestant van 12 jaer?Äô (the 12 Year Truce) into the mouth of the lion; heavenly blessing (?Äòzeghen des hemels?Äô )descends upon the country. These bring with it arts and sciences (?ÄòConst en Wetenschap?Äô); safety (?ÄòVailighe Tijdt?Äô); knowledge and wealth (?ÄòKennisse en Rijkdom?Äô); prosperous towns (?Äò ?Äòt Vergrooten der Steden?Äô); the cultivation of the land (?Äò ?Äòt Vredich Lantbouwen?Äô); and trade (?ÄòCoophandel?Äô). Yet even in these peaceful times, the frontier guard (?ÄòFrontier Wacht?Äô) remains alert.Although the map celebrated the truce, it also implied ?Äì with the personification of north and south - the break-up of the XVII Provinces. This is further re-enforced by the individual north and south medallions that can be seen suspended from the lion?Äôs sword. 470 by 580mm. (18.5 by 22.75 inches). van der Heijden 5.2.

Pièce de titre en maroquin rouge. Coiffe de tête arrachée avec manques aux mors. Mors fendus en queue. 2 trous de vers en queue, et 2 autres le long du mors supérieur en queue. Coins émoussés. papier jauni. La poésie de Desportes a été durablement influencée et façonnée par la littérature italienne. L'auteur revient en effet en France après un voyage en Italie où il subit l'ascendant de Pétrarque - on taxe par ailleurs ses premières poésies de néo-pétrarquisme. Son premier livre paraîtra dans un recueil collectif et rassemble ses poésies imitées de l'Arioste. Sa poésie claire, franche, maniériste et raffinée, une poésie de cour, éclipsa celle de Ronsard à la cour de Henri III. Elle fut à son tour critiquée et remplacée par celle de Malherbe. La littérature de Desportes ne constitue pas moins un aspect important de la poésie de la Renaissance. Cette édition contient les amours de Diane, les amours d'Hyppolite, Cleonice, les élegies, les poésies imitées de l'Arioste, les nouvelles amours, les épitaphes et diverses pièces.
