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.

        The Generall Historie of Spaine, containing all the memorable things that have past in the realmes of Castille, Leon, Navarre, Arragon, Portugall, Granado, &c. translated into English, and continued unto these times by Edward Grimeston, Esquire.

      Printed by A. Islip and G. Eld 1612 - FIRST EDITION, initial blank discarded, a bit of minor spotting, a few rustspots, one leaf with a neatly-repaired closed tear across 15 lines of text (slightly out of alignment but not affectnig sense), frequent small marginal tickmarks and a few short notes in an early hand, pp. [vi], 1380, [28], folio, later seventeenth-century sprinkled calf, boards bordered with a double gilt fillet enclosing gilt corner-pieces, spine divided by six raised bands between gilt fillets, small repair to foot of spine, modern bookplate of Adrian Bullock to front and rear, ownership inscription and purchase note of Henry Smith of Corpus Christi dated 1660 to flyleaf (with his initials also to title-page), very good The first edition of the first English translation of Mayerne’s history of Spain, an important source for later historians and other authors. It is now quite scarce in nice condition. Grimeston, a prolific translator mostly from French, produced a number of substantial tomes (few under 1000 pages), his two other major translations being histories of France and the Netherlands. This work includes a description of Columbus, hence its Sabin reference.Despite this, he has received minimal modern attention: in 1906 F.S. Boas wrote (in Modern Philology, Apr. issue) ‘It is remarkable that he is not thought worthy of being mentioned in the Dictionary of National Biography, even among his father’s descendants, for he was one of the most active and versatile of translators, when translation was in its golden age, and he was sergeant-at-arms during one of the most stirring periods of English parliamentary history’. Grimeston still goes nearly unmentioned in the ODNB - he now warrants half a line as one of his father’s sons and a sergeant-at-arms. (ESTC S114485; Sabin 47118)

Instumenti Translatione, Alkorano, Avicenna, &c. ut & Græca Lxx. Interpretum, & omnibus Latinis Bibliorum versionibus .

      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.

        Von Den Fluessen des Haupts und der ursachen wie sich dafur zu hutten

      Lignitz, [1612]. First Edition. Modern linen backed bds.. A very good copy; some slight spotting. 4to.,A early provincial imprint from a small Silesian town. One incunable imprint is known to exist from the town but then there is nothing until 1595 when according to Brunet printing was re-established. Durling cites a 1596 imprint (#3703) by the same printer on a book remarkably similar in content to the Seiller book offered here. Seiller's medical advice deals with the cure and avoidance of a specific sort of infectious head cold or flu. He provides a very detailed account of the symptoms and their variations and prescribes food, potions, eye washes etc. (a small materia medica accompanies the text). It would appear that the people of Lignitz were periodically infected with this flu like epidemic identified by Seiller's predecessor as originating in Hungary. The text is in German with elaborate side notes in Latin. One copy located at NY Academy of Medicine; absent from all maj. coll. cat's..

        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.

While primarily remembered today for his translation of Ovid's Metamorphoses because of its influence on William Shakespeare's works, in his own time he was most famous for his translation of Caesar's Commentaries, and his translations of the sermons of John Calvin were important in spreading the doctrines of the Protestant Reformation (Wikipedia).

It was only posthumously that the Poly-Olbion became a literary classic.

From the library of the swedish learned lawyer, statesman and propagandist Olof Hermelin (1658- probably 1709), born Olof Nilsson Skragge. He disappeared during the battle of Poltava in 1709, and was not heard of afterward. He was probably killed, or executed as he was impopular among the russians and tsar Peter.

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.

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.

        Le Mercure François, ou, la Suitte de l'Histoire de la paix.

      Paris, Jean Richer 1612 - 25 volumes petit in-8. Collation : Vélin. (Reliure de l'époque.) Collection absolument complète du premier périodique français, publié à raison d'un volume par an, puis par périodicité plus espacée. Le "Mercure français" rassemble une collection de sources de première main sur les évènements politiques, militaires, diplomatiques, mondains et religieux (notamment la dure bataille contre les Réformés, comme le siège de La Rochelle qui dura un an), des pays nordiques à l'Espagne, de l'Angleterre à la Russie, et partout où sont impliqués les Européens, du Maghreb à la Turquie, et de l'Inde à Java. Il s'avère particulièrement utile sur la guerre de Trente Ans et sur les efforts de colonisation. Ainsi, le Canada fait l'objet de nombreux textes, certains parus en édition originale, comme des relations de Champlain, l'installation et le développement de la colonie au Québec, l'organisation d'une Compagnie commerciale, la mise en place des structures missionnaires et la présentation des travaux linguistiques des jésuites. Ces 25 volumes totalisent environ 20.000 pages,illustrées de28 planches hors texte repliées dont 24 gravées sur cuivre, un tableau généalogique dépliant et 3 planches gravées sur bois dans le texte. On y trouve donc 3 planches de plus que la collation donnée par Picot, ou d’autres exemplaires connus. Jean Richer fonda ce périodique en 1612 (relayé ensuite par son parent Estienne) et traitât l'ensemble de l'actualité européenne, colonies comprises. Assisté de correspondants en France et à l'étranger, et rédigea lui-même des textes auxquels il adjoignit les nouvelles qu'on lui envoyait. A partir de 1624 la direction de la publication revint au Père Joseph, l’ami de toujours de Richelieu. L’esprit de la publication va changer. Le Mercure françois devînt un organe officieux du gouvernement ; en effet, il en modifia la forme, apporta plus de cohérence, imposa une ligne, et organisa chaque volume en une narration suivie entrecoupée de mémoires et dissertations. Le tome 1 est en 4e édition (la 1èreétant de 1612.) Des pages ou des gravures qui étaient manquantes proviennent d’autres exemplaires, certaines sont un peu plus courtes en pied. Les pages 925 à 1040, et les 2 ff. du Privilège du tome 19, ont été ajoutées. Ces pages manquent presque toujours: elles ont été victimes de la Censure de l’archevêque de Bordeaux, cardinal de Sourdis, et aussi lieutenant général de la Marine pour une simple querelle sur le marché au poisson.(Chartier). La reliure en vélin est uniforme. Bel exemplaire. Description détaillée sur demande. // You can browse all my books on latude.net [Attributes: First Edition]

        King James Bible with the Genealogy of Jesus

      1612 - 1612. This Bible is in poor condition externally, with boards that are marked and worn and the spine is missing altogether, revealing the intricacy of early seventeenth century book binding. The pages are loosened and the title pages of both the OT and the NT are missing. Despite the book's age the pages themselves are clean and the print remains clear. The date is difficult to establish; we have been unable to find any of the distinguishing mistakes that can be used to identify a particular edition of the King James Bible. The frontispiece for the Book of Psalms gives a date of 1612 and it is clear that this Bible was in regular use by the 1640s and remained so until the late eighteenth century as children used it to practice their writing skills, see photos. Given the different dates throughout, it is possible that this Bible has been rebound as a compilation at some point. Further information and photos available on request.

        APOCRYPHA, GENEALOGY AND MAP FROM FIRST QUARTO OF KING JAMES BIBLE {Substantial Fragment of Original Leaves}

      Robert Barker, London, 1612-1613. London: Robert Barker, London, 1612-1613, 1612. Unpaginated but I count 211 pages (105 keaves) from an original King James Bible of 1612-1613. This was the first Quarto printing of the King James version of the Bible, printed in two columns, Roman typeface. There are 27 pages of John Speed's illustrated Genealogy, the two page map of the Holy Land together with the two page Description of Canaan, and I count 180 unpaginated pages of the Apocraphal books beginning with the first page of Esdras and ending with Maccabees II through Chapter VII. Last four leaves of Apocrypha are severely dog eared at bottom outside corner and two of these leaves have a word of text affected. First page of Genealogies very age darkened, as is last page of Apocrypha. Perhaps half of the pages of this substantial fragment are dog eared but not so seriously as to affect content. Pages of Genealogy present are: 7-34 ending with Christ at bottom of page 34. All pages of this fragment are very age toned and there is some soiling and old staining. Brown paper covers are also dog eared and with some short closed tears at eges. Title on front cover written in neat old pen "The Apocrypha" within decorative hand drawn box. Engraved headpiece at Esdras first page has deocoration of small pleasant face at center which is consistent with headpiece of Esdras from 1613 Bible that is shown online. However, this decorative headpiece was also used extensively in sections of the 1612 King James Bible online. It is possible this substantial fragment of the first Quarto of the King James Bible has mixed states including some pages printesd in 1612 and others in 1613. This is consistent with the generally accepted printing dates of the first Quarto by Robert Barker of 1612-1613. Not only the headpiece of the section of the Apocrypha but also the typography of the final page of Genealogy showing Christ as last entry is consistent with earliest printings of the King James Bible. It would be a sin to break up this item into individual leaves, but individual leaves of this early printing sell for significant sums in themselves. Good (reasonably priced) alternative to the very pricey complete King James Bible first quarto. . First Editions. Large Fragment in Paper Covers. Very Good/N/A. Illus. by Illustrated Genealogy, Two Page Map, and Headpiece and Historiated Initials . Quarto, 27, 4, 180pp.

        HYMENAEUS DESERTOR. SIVE DE SANCTORUM APOSTASIA PROBLEMATA DUO.

      'Ad Moenum' Frankfurt 1612 1612 - [16], 108pp. Small 4to (17 x 23cm). Theological treatise by the specifically centered on the two questions 'an fieri possit ut justus deserat justitam suam?' and 'an quae deseritur fuerit vera justita?', and in answering them advancing a more extreme Arminian position than was subsequently felt by that community to be acceptable. It is generally considered to be the fallout of this publication that led to the loss of Bertius's credibility as a Reformed theologian (he converted to Rome in 1620) and his eventual forsaking of the universities of the Netherlands for the court of Louis XIII. Latin text. Decorative woodcut to title page. Red page edges. Later marbled paper-backed boards with black leather spine label lettered gilt; later endpapers. Slight crease in margin of final few pages and gentle age toning to most pages, but otherwise very clean, excellent condition. No inscriptions. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
