SPEED, John
London: , 1611-12. Copperplate engraving with hand colour. Mount size:580 × 695 mm. Repairs to central fold, but in good overall condition. This delightful county map of the county of Surrey is from the first edition of Speed's Theatre of the Empire of Great Britain. This is a marvellous "snapshot" of a county that was paradoxically both rustic and rural, but also close to the bustling, thriving London of James I. Due to that proximity, together with its accommodating countryside of hunting lodges, woods and hills, ideal for hunting game and deer, the county was unsurprisingly a favoured haunt of royalty, where successive monarchs, Henry VII and VIII, built the royal palaces of Richmond and Nonsuch. Compared to the fetid air of London, the air in Surrey was "most sweet and delectable". Speed's map of Surrey is embellished with all manor of interesting decorations, including a compass rose, mileage scale and the armorial arms of the earls of Surrey.

BIBLE; English; King James Version, "She".)
London: Robert Barker, 1611–13 - Folio (410 × 260 mm), 752 leaves, complete. Recased in contemporary dark calf, spine gilt in compartments, later red morocco label to style. 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. 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. 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 b … [Click Below for Full Description]

RENAULME, P. DE.
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. Mackenzie', and another old armorial bookplate. Hunt 192; Nissen BBI, 1621; Stafleu & Cowan 9073.

Tasso Torquato
in Venetia, appresso Giacomo Sarzina, 1611. 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 conver … [Click Below for Full Description]

MAYERNE, LOUIS TURQUET de. - [COINING "POLITICAL ECONOMY" - 4 YEARS BEFORE MONTCHRÉTIEN]
Paris, Berjon and le Bouc, 1611. 4to. Lovely contemporary full vellum binding with slightly yapped edges. Coloured title-compartment to spine. Inner back hinge slightly weak and a few of the 2x6 vellum cords missing. But a fine and tight copy. A very fine large-sized copy (pp. measuring 22,5x15,5 cm). A small hole to margin of title-page, far from affecting lettering. A few light cleases to corner of the first leaves. Last leaves with a faint damp stain to lower corner, only on ab. five leaves lightly touching text. Same last leaves with a bit of damp satining to inner margins. Large woodcut title-vignette, one large and several smaller woodcut initials, woodcut headpieces marking the beginning of each part. (20], 562, (10 - index + errata).. The very rare first edition of this milestone work of political science, which contains the first noted occurrence in any modern language of the phrase "political economy", otherwise thought to have been coined by Montchrétien in 1615, four years after the present work. In fact, the present work constitutes a precursor to Montchrétien in almost all ways. Not only does Mayerne-Turquet's masterpiece "La Monarchie" constitute the first attempt at re-creating civil order by activating governmental authority, the first work to re-define the worth of the Old Nobility and establish the Reason State, it also founds the entire "culture of merit" and is furthermore one of the first utopia-programmes for a police-state.

SPEED, JOHN
London: John Sudbury & George Humble; John Dawson for George Humble, 1611. 1st Edition. THE EARLIEST ATLAS OF THE BRITISH ISLES AD THE EARLIEST WORLD ATLAS BY AN ENGLISHMAN. FIRST EDITION of "The Theatre"; (1611) bound with the second edition (1631) of the "Prospect" "The Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine... was the earliest English attempt at producing an atlas on a grand scale, with the first detailed maps of the provinces of Ireland, the first set of county maps consistently attempting to show the boundaries of territorial divisions, and the first truly comprehensive set of English town plans--a notable contribution to British topography. Perhaps as many as fifty of the seventy-three towns had not previously been mapped, and about fifty-one of the plans were probably Speed's own work... A balance is struck between the modern and historical, with information placed on the edges of the maps about antiquarian remains, and sites and vignettes of famous battles, together with arms of princes and nobles. This additional information is one of the Theatre's most significant contributions" (Dictionary of National Biography). The "Theatre" is complete with engraved architectural title, engraved Royal Achievements by Jodocus Hondius dated 1611, letterpress list of kingdoms and woodcut royal arms, three letterpress section titles with woodcut borders, three woodcut royal arms, 67 double-page engraved maps, most by Jodocus Hondius, woodcut head- and tail-pieces and initials, mounted on guards throughout.

Besides miracles of each element, there are alphabetical treatments of birds, quadrupeds, mountains, bodies of water, forests, gardens, trees, herbs, flowers, fruits, cities, temples, towers, bridges, and so on, passing from the realm of nature to that of art" (Thorndike). - Leicht gebräunt.

MORNAY (Philippe de, dit Duplessis-Mornay);
Saumur Portau 1611 In-folio de (2)-13-(1)-607-(1) pp., vélin souple (reliure de l'époque). Edition originale très rare, illustrée de la planche double hors-texte : Tel se fait peindre Paul cinquiesme en la premiere page de plusieurs livres a lui dediez, imprimez à Rome & à Bouloigne. Le célèbre polémiste a dédié son livre au roi de France et une traduction latine à celui d'Angleterre. Il l'a composé pendant que les protestants étaient à Saumur, pour s'élever contre le pouvoir de l'Eglise et du pape Paul V comparé à la bête de l'Apocalypse. Ce « détestable livre » suivant le mot de Richelieu dans ses mémoires, fut condamné en Sorbonne le 22 août 1611 et provoqua une vive polémique. Le fonds de l'impression fut conservé au Château de Saumur dont Mornay était gouverneur, mais celui-ci fut démis en 1621 de sa charge, et les gens de la suite du roi, alors à Saumur brûlèrent peu après dans la cour du château, la plupart des exemplaires du Mystère d'iniquité. Vignette à la Tour de Babel sur le titre (18 x 17 cm) ; Portrait de l'auteur hors-texte gravé par L. Gaultier. De toute rareté complet de la planche dépliante. Des feuillets roussis, restauration ancienne sur le coin inférieur droit du plat supérieur. Bourgeois André, VII, 6081 ; Sauvy, Livres saisis à Paris entre 1678 et 1701, 93.

RENAULME, P. DE.
1611. 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. Mackenzie', and another old armorial bookplate.

Sein Wahlspruch war Concordia lumine maior (Eintracht ist stärker als Licht). Er spielte eine maßgebliche Rolle bei der innerfamiliären Opposition der Habsburger gegen seinen Bruder Kaiser Rudolf. Nach dem Gewinn der Macht zeigte er wenig eigene politische Initiative. Den Kurs der Politik bestimmte bis zu seinem Sturz Melchior Khlesl.
