PISO, Willem.
DSB X, p. 622; Garraux, Bibl. Brasilienne, pp. 232-233; Sabin 63030. Later edition of this very important work on the tropical medicine of Brazil by Willem Piso (1611-78), who served as the physician of the Dutch settlement in Brazil from 1636 to 1644. He studied the herbal medicines of the indigenous people and advocated many of their health practices. Searching the jungle for medicinal plants, he was the first European to grasp the usefulness of native treatments using ipecacuanha, sassafras, sarsaparilla, guaiacum and other plants. With some slightly browned patches, and a burn in in the foot margin of the last 15 leaves, not reaching the text, restored in the last 9 leaves. With a small abrasion on the marbled paper of the front board. Still in good condition.

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).

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 Cathol … [Click Below for Full Description]

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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Josephus, Titus Flavius (37-c100)

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, inclu … [Click Below for Full Description]

Speed, John
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. S … [Click Below for Full Description]

WYTFLIET, Cornelis van and Giovanni Antonio MAGINI
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 Ca … [Click Below for Full Description]
