      Lutetiae (Paris): Officiana Nivelliana, 1612. First Edition. Hardcover (Full Leather). Very Good Condition. Later full calf, rebacked, spien a bit dry, edges a little scuffed. Light dampstains to title and an old ownership signature, notes to front endpapers. quite clean internally with scattered minor foxing, corner of one page torn. First edition in the original Greek, followed by the Latin translation originally published in 1562 by the librarian to Louis XIII. [16], 278, [30], 111 [i.e. 211], [1], 120 p. Graesse VI 331 (noting the Morel edition and this one on whiter, stronger paper than the others), Bibliotheca Accipitrari. One of the earliest treatises on Falconry, Pepagomenos (1200-1300) was court physician to Byzantine Emperor Michael VIII Palaiologos - the treatise deals with the catching, training and health of the hawks, describing in detail the methods of capturing the hawks using decoy pigeons and various sorts of blinds. This work also collects for the first time, a second, anonymous Greek work on falconry dealing largely with the health of the birds (it occupies pages 177-239), the Latin translation of the same, and a third Greek treatise, (occupying pages 239-the end) this one not translated, dealing with descriptions of hawks in the first section and their diseases in the second. The final section has the only surviving edition of a (likely apocryphal) letter to Ptolemy of Egypt (it is cited by Albertus Magnus in his book on falconry) by Aquila Symmachus here printed in Catalan (the original Latin MS is lost) and an excerpt from a book by Symmachus on falconry (these occupy pages 183-200 and 201-211 respectively). The final sections are a long poem on falconry entitled Hieracosophion, sive de re accipitraria libri III, originally published in 1582 and a work on the care of dogs for hunting, De Cura Canum Venaticorum. Size: Quarto (4to). Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: Animals & Birds; Fishing & Hunting. Inventory No: 044731.

      Paris, Jean Laquehay 1612 - in-4, [2] ff. n. ch. (titre, dédicace "aux chevalliers de ces courses"), [372] pp. mal chiffrées 368 (il y a saut de chiffrage de 348 à 345), maroquin cerise, dos à nerfs, double filet doré sur les coupes, tranches dorées sur jaspure, large dentelle intérieure (Masson-Debonnelle). Bel exemplaire. Unique édition, fort peu commune, mais partagée entre plusieurs libraires, de cette description du carroussel, des jeux, des joutes et des courses de bagues données pendant trois jours sur l'actuelle Place des Vosges à l'occasion de la conclusion des "mariages espagnols" (Louis XIII avec Anne d'Autriche ; Elisabeth de France avec le futur Philippe IV). Manque, comme dans beaucoup d'exemplaires, la suite intitulée "Le Reste des vers faicts pour ces courses et comme ils furent donnez au camp", et qui forme un supplément de 32 pages. Né à Forcalquier, Honorat de Laugier de Porchères (1572-1653) commença sa carrière littéraire par cet ouvrage de circonstance en prose, mais il devait ultérieurement se faire connaître surtout par ses poèmes ; ce fut l'un des premiers membres de l'Académie Française. Cioranescu, XVII, 40689. Ruggieri, 385. Plusieurs collations de dépôts publics donnent [4] ff. liminaires et non [2] comme ici, sans autre précision. En tout cas, les signatures de notre exemplaire sont cohérentes, et il ne semble rien manquer avant la signature A(1). Très bel exemplaire. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        TRATTATO DE' CIBI ET DEL BERE del Signor B.P. medico bolognese. Ove non solo si tratta delle virtù de’ cibi, che ordinariamente si mangiano & de’ vini che si bevono, ma insieme s’insegna il modo di corregger i loro difetti ridotto in assai bell’ordine . dal Signor Francesco Gallina medico piemontese.

      Giovanni Domenico Tarino,, Torino, 1612 - Volume in 8° antico (cm. 12 x 9), legatura coeva in piena pelle, titolo impresso al dorso a cinque nervi, inciso e decorato in oro a scomparti, sguardie, frontespizio con bella e grande marca xilografica (antica firma d'appartenenza cancellata con inchiostro), dedicatoria dell'editore al principe Vittorio Amedeo di Savoia, sommario, 8 cc., 393 pp., bianche. Si tratta della rara edizione torinese (la prima veneta è del 1583) di questo celebre trattato che ebbe una rinomanza enorme tanto da vendere circa trenta edizioni nel corso di un secolo. L’opera in lingua italiana del medico bolognese del XVI secolo Baldassare Pisanelli (notizie 1559 -1583), allievo del più famoso Aldovrandi, è una disamina accurata delle virtù e difetti dei più comuni cibi, frutti e liquori. Insegnamenti per la preparazione e la cottura. Consigli per la scelta degli alimenti. Di ogni cibo e' riportata la storia e la considerazione di esso presso gli antichi. Il testo inizia con la Tavola delle Cose che nella presente opera si contengono: si elencano in voci alfabetiche tutti i cibi commestibili atti a preparare le ricette culinarie che seguono. Stampata in bel corsivo tondo, alcuni capilettera e finalini xilografici, una lieve ed uniforme brunitura dovuta al tipo di carta, un accenno di gora al margine inferiore delle prime ed ultime pagine. Esemplare in più che buono stato di conservazione. Ricco di nozioni a dir poco curiose. Di grande rarità e notevole importanza.

First published as a defence of the Society at Middleburgh in 1601 and reissued in the same year in London. Hotchkiss describes this book "as the earliest important example of corporation publicity...a piece of commercial propaganda...an important milestone in the development of marketing...It represents the characteristically medieval theory of the trade monopoly, bolstered by monarchical authority and jealously guarded against competition". Written to show the superiority of the Merchant Adventurers over unorganised traders, Wheeler argued that competition among merchants was minimized, that the large fleets employed by such a company secured commerce, increased exports, cheapened imports, raised the customs revenue, and benefited the nation in time of war. The book contains a detailed account of alliances with the Low Countries, trade with Antwerp and survey of trade between England and the Hanse towns, with a refutation of the charge against the Merchant Adventurers of being monopolists.

Schwerdt II, p.136. Souhart, pp.670 - 671.Thiébaud, p.499 - 500. Importante e assai rara raccolta di opere sulla falconeria e la cinologia, pubblicata dal bibliotecario del re di Francia Luigi XIII: Nicolas Rigault, la cui dedicatoria appare nelle prime pagine del libroa: Rigault era pure esecutore testamentario del celebre falconiere Jacques Auguste de Thou. Il lavoro venne stampato da Claude Morel, insieme ad altri due librai (H.Drovart e S.Cramoisy). Sul mercato apparvero così varie ediz. con i nomi ora dell'uno, ora dell'altro libraio. Il nostro esemplare reca il nome del libraio Drovart. Secondo Brunet e Souhart, l'ediz. stampata da Cramoisy ha la carta più bianca e resistente Si è riscontrato una certa discrepanza nelle pagine e nell'ordine delle opere nelle tre edizioni. Kreysig segnala una edizione in 8° del 1758, pubblicata a Basilea e una parigina in 4° del 1619, che Thiébaud giudica inesistenti. Le opere riunite sono undici, le prime due in greco, entrambe dedicate agli ucceli da rapina e scritte da Demetrio Costantinopolitano detto Pepagomeno, appaiono stampate per la prima volta. Seguono altre opere sul medesimo soggeto (importante un poema latino di J.A. de Thou), una in greco sulla cura dei cani da caccia, attribuita a Femone o al già citato Pepagomeno, una epistola in catalano (nell'opera in questione c'è anche la traduzione latina) su come nutrire e curare gli uccelli da rapina, impiegati per la caccia (la lettera è di Simmaco, considerata apocrifa, è il più antico trattato di falconeria in lingua volgare) ecc. Per una dettagliata analisi di tutte le 11 opere si rimanda in particolare ai repertori di Ceresoli e Thiébaud.

        Darbieshire described

      to be sold in popes head Alley by John Sudbury and G. Humble, [1612-1616]., [London], - Double-page engraved map, upper left and right margins skilfully repaired, margins reinforced with japanned paper. The map bears the imprint of Roger Rea the Elder and Younger. The Reas had purchased the rights to Speed's work form William Garrett in 1589, who had previously purchased them from the widow of William Humble in the same year. Skelton suggests that the father and son intended a new edition of the atlas for the Restoration, of 1660. However, the atlas would appear not to have been published until 1665. This is borne out by an advertisement in the Term Catalogue by the subsequent owners of the plates, Thomas Bassett and Richard Chiswell, in 1675:"Mr John Speed's. Geography of the Kingdoms of England, Scotland, and Ireland. together with his Prospect. all in one entire Volume, hath been, for seven Years past, out of Print, the greatest part of an Impression, then newly Printed, being destroyed by the late dreadful Fire, 1666". This is borne out by the rarity of the Rea edition of the atlas. There is evidence that they planned an edition of 1666, as there are impressions of Sussex, Buckingham and Derby, with Rea's imprint, which bear that date. Rea would later sell the plates to Bassett and Chiswell, who would publish a new edition in 1676.

And of sowing Acornes, Chesnuts, Beech-mast, The Seedes of Elmes, Ashen-keyes, &c. With the Commodities and Discommodities of Inclosing decayed Forrests, Commons, and waste Grounds. And also the use of a small portable Instrument for measuring of Board, and the solid content and height of any Tree standing. Discoursed in Dialogue betweene a Surveyour, Woodward, Gentleman, and a Farmer. Divided into foure parts, by R.C. Small quarto (184 × 139 mm), pp. [6], 108, [4] index; with initial blank [A1]. Old sheep boards, double blind rules, rebacked to style, corners restored. Folding plate depicting the measuring instrument, woodcut illustrations in text, tables and mathematical equations. Some paper restoration, mostly trivial, 6 leaves (B2, B3, D2, D3, K1, K2) extended at fore-margin, spill-burn in L2 costing a couple of letters either side but not the sense, later (probably 19th-century) marginal note to N4v; a very good copy. First and only edition, by Rooke Churche, King's Surveyor, though often erroneously attributed to R. Chambers or Robert Churton. A classic early work of early 17th-century husbandry, with similar aims and views to, but long predating, Evelyn's Sylva (1664). In his preface Churche praises Henry Howard, earl of Northampton, as an exemplary manager of forestry. The book is fairly well-held institutionally, ESTC locating seven copies in Britain and four in North America, but scarce in commerce.

      Typis Johannis Jacobi Hennëi, Francofurti ad Moenum 1612 - Hardcover. Thick Folio. [viii], text [498pp.], + Rasch Theboth & Index [152pp]. Text in double columns. Late (eighteenth century?) paper covered boards with worn leather tips, recently rebacked in leather, with raised bands. Woodcut head and tail pieces, ornaments and initials. The First Edition of this important polyglot lexicon, it was primarily intended for Biblical studies, but was also a landmark in the field of Arabic studies (it preceeded Franciscus Raphelengiusthe's Arabic-Latin lexicon by a year). The author, Valentin Schindler (d. 1604), was a professor of Oriental languages, first at the University of Wittenberg and then at Helmstadt, where he died. The work was written especially for students of Hebrew - it is arranged according to the Hebrew alphabet, and with the Syriac and Arabic words printed in Hebrew letters - and refers to Hebrew, Chaldaean, Syriac, Talmudic Rabbinic, and Arabic. Schindler died before the book was published, and it was consequently edited by Walter Keuchen (Gualtherus Keuchenius) whose essay "Rasche Theboth, sive abbreviaturae Hebraeae" ("Rasch Theboth Hebrew Abbreviations") appeared at the rear. The work has been used widely, and it is perhaps testament to Mme. Blavatsky's erudition that she cites it in her "The Secret Doctrine." Boards quite heavily rubbed, particularly at points, but still very solid. A few unobtrusive contemporary annotations, hint of yellowing to the pages, which remain fresh and supple. A VG+ copy.

        La Perspective, Avec la Raison des Ombres et Miroirs

      Finely engraved title & numerous fine engravings in the text (many full-page, one double-page). 5 p.l., 49 leaves, [16] leaves. Large folio, cont. vellum over boards (some dampstaining, mostly marginal, to about nine leaves, some light browning). London: Jan Norton, 1612 [with added engraved imprint beneath sill of the compartment: "Francfort ches la vefue de Hulsius"]. First edition, second issue (see below), of this rare perspective manual by the architect and engineer Salomon de Caus (d. 1626), a prominent theorist of perspective, who was renowned as an inventor of mechanical contrivances, utilitarian and entertaining. The book is of great interest for its material on the phenomenon of anamorphosis, a distorted projection or drawing of anything, which, when viewed from a particular point, or by reflection from a suitable mirror, appears regular and properly proportioned. The work presents a large number of perspective problems, including intricate projections and optical illusions, drawings of shadows in perspective, and the mirroring of objects. "In the sum total of his work, this book takes its place as one chapter of a vast treatise on the wonders of the world, in which the harmony of sounds and shapes, the mechanics of vision and of hydraulic machines are presented on the same level. Although the author writes in the sober style of a technician, he is deeply aware of the poetry of his subjects."-Baltrušaitis, Anamorphic Art, p. 37. Caus was born in the Dieppe region, but moved a great deal in Flemish and German circles in which anamorphoses seem to have been particularly in vogue. He was in the service of the Archduke Albert II of Austria (1605-10), then in England where he worked in the Richmond Gardens and for Henry, Prince of Wales, and finally with Frederick V, Elector of the Palatinate and King of Bohemia (1619). He spent the final years of his life in France. A cosmopolitan and intellectual with wide-ranging interests, he wrote on music, automata, on solar clocks and on Euclidean proportions. This book appears to be the second book published in England to make use of folding or pop-up flaps in diagrams (the first being John Dee's Euclid of 1570). Our book is an interesting example of shared printing: Richard Field printed the preliminaries, the letterpress of Chap. 10 of "Ombres" and all of "Miroirs" while Mommart in Brussels printed the rest. The first issue is dated 1611; our issue is dated a year later with a slightly altered imprint (see NSTC 4868.7 & 4869 for details). A fine copy preserved in a black morocco-backed box. Several of the engravings have been slightly shaved at outer or lower margins. ❧ Kemp, The Science of Art, pp. 112, 118, & 183. .

        Oxford Shyre; Bvckingham Shyre; Barck Shyre.]

      1612 - London, 1612. 255 x 330mm. A very decorative map of Oxfordshire; Buckinghamshire and Berkshire, ignoring political boundaries and instead focusing on natural features, with hills and rivers populated by allegorical figures. Only major towns are marked. The Chilterns; The Vale of White Horse; Windrush; Oxford and Thame are all shown. Michael Drayton (1563-1631), a prominent poet, is believed to have started work on his 'Poly-Olbion' in 1598. This epic topographical poem, divided into thirty songs written in alexandrine couplets, ran to nearly 15,000 lines of verse. Each song described one, two or three counties, describing their topography, traditions and histories. The First Part was published in 1612, with eighteen maps probably engraved by William Hole (who signed the frontispiece). Drayton had been a favourite of Queen Elizabeth's court, but was not so popular with James I. Perhaps to rectify this the 'Poly-Olbion' was dedicated to Henry, Prince of Wales, but Henry died in 1612, the year of publication. The work did not sell well, and it was not until 1622 that Drayton could find a publisher for the second part, which contained ten more maps. Drayton intended to compose a further part to cover Scotland, but no part of this work is known to have survived. Despite these setbacks Drayton was still prominent enough to be buried in Poets' Corner in Westminster Abbey when he died in 1631. It was only posthumously that the Poly-Olbion became a literary classic.
