This is the Holy Grail in a King James Bible in the 4to size,very hard to find and very rarely found complete,sometimes I see listings which say they have this one but one of the title pages is a later date not this one ALL of the title pages and colophon bear the date 1612 This matches Herbert 313 being the first edition of the size and is printed in Roman type. It has one slight difference in that in this copy H5b the heading to Galatians is printed correctly I have seen other slight variations in these but the key is the date both title pages are 1612 and the colophon so this is a true HE 1612 edition and fully collates to that. It also has a complete genealogies which is rare to find and even rarer still to find with the map of Canaan though this is torn at the center fold but the map is complete This does have the book of common prayer at the beginning and is missing the title page probably as this was at the beginning it protected the rest of the Bible The OT title page is very different from what you see in the Bibles from 1613 onwards as its in the style of the folio edition of 1611 That page has been glued onto old paper that bears the name and one of the owners dated 1780 so its possible it was re-enforced some 200 years ago.Part of the margin is missing on the title page but does not effect the title page itself This is a very good clean example and recently rebound I think this is the nicest example you are likely to find and better than the one sold at Sotheby's for almost 6000 dollars back in 2016 it was lacking the map and the book of Psalms in that one was d … [Click Below for Full Description]

ORTELIUS, Abraham
Engraving. Image measures 14" x 19", sheet measures 19" x 23". This stunning 1612 map by Abraham Ortelius depicts the Western Hemisphere. At the time it was issued, the coastal areas of the New World had been fairly well explored, and Europeans were just beginning settlement and colonization. It is notable for depicting Spanish and Portuguese colonies in high detail, for these powers were notoriously protective of their geographical surveys. This is the first state of the third plate engraved for Ortelius's landmark map of the New World. It is distinguished from the first two plates by the lack of the bulge to the southwest coast of South America. Several other cartographic enhancements are apparent on closer inspections. Abraham Ortelius (1527--1598), a Flemish cartographer and geographer, is widely regarded as one of the important and influential cartographers in history. He is known for his "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum," which was the first modern atlas. Very hard to find in black and white.

VERJUS, Antoine de.
Cf. F. Vermote, The role of urban real estate in Jesuit finances and networks between Europe and China, 1612-1778 (2013). Signed autograph letter written by Antoine Verjus (1632-1706), Parisian Jesuit procurator for the Indian and Chinese missions from 1678 to 1702 and, on the evidence of the present letter still in 1703. He reports on various Jesuits who have left for China, notes the importance of the work and the honour it has brought to others (explicitly noting the Duchess of Alba), and appears to be seeking patronage. In the 1690s Verjus had corresponded with Leibniz and helped him establish contacts in China. He spent much of his career attempting to establish a safer and more reliable connection between Europe and China. He distrusted the motives of his colleagues in other European countries, even fellow Jesuits, and succeeded in diverting funding for missions from Lisbon to Paris. He found much support in Germany, however, especially the Prince-Bishop of Münster, Ferdinand von Fürstenberg. "Verjus' correspondence ... illustrates his pivotal role in reshaping Jesuit transport and communication networks." (Vermote p. 32). The letter was formerly folded horizontally and vertically, probably for sending, and one corner is slightly damaged with no loss of text. In very good condition. An important primary source on French Jesuit missionary work in China and it financing.

LONGOMONTANUS, CHRISTIAN S. - [SOLVING THE QUADRATURE OF THE CIRCLE - BY THE SOLE DISCIPLE OF TYCHO BRAHE]
Hafniae (i.e. Copenhagen), Henric Waldkirch, 1612. 4to. Bound in a recent half vellum with handwritten title to spine. Text browned, due to the quality of the paper. A tiny hole to the woodcut frame of the title-page and a handwritten "4" to the top of the title-page. A good copy. 83 pp. Title within an ornamental woodcut border, large woodcut initials, and woodcut illustrations in the text. With dedicatory letter to King Christian IV and a eulogy to the author by Casper Bartholin. ¶ The extremely rare first edition of one of Longomontanus' most important works, namely his first publication on the squaring of the circle, a problem that occupied him for decades, until his death in 1647.The work sparked an international feud, as Longomontanus' claim to have solved the squaring of the circle provoked the British mathematician John Pell to such a degree that almost his entire time in the Netherlands (1643 till 1652) was occupied with refuting Longomonatunus' claim. Having continued to work on the quadrature of the circle ever since 1612, yet another work by Longomontanus on the problem was published in Amsterdam in 1644. The Longomontanus-Pell-affair occupied a great deal of mathematicians at the time and no-one succeeded in convincing Longomontanus that he had not solved the problem. Longomontanus is one of the most famous Danish astronomers and mathematicians. He was so closely connected to Tycho Brahe that it is difficult to separate his fame from that of Brahe, which meant that whatever his mathematical skills may actually have been, everything he published was of consequen … [Click Below for Full Description]

PHILOLOGIE) THEOPHRASTE.
Lugduni, Viduam Ant. De Harsy, 1612. in-8. 8ff. 367pp. 6ff. Demi veau, dos à nerfs orné (Reliure du XIXs.). Première Edition définitive de la version donnée par le grand helléniste protestant Isaac Casaubon (1559-1614) des Caractères de Théophraste, avec ses commentaires. Casaubon avait d'abord publié en 1592 une édition partielle du texte grec de Théophraste contenant 23 caractères, accompagnée de la traduction latine et de commentaires. La présente édition offre, pour la première fois, la version définitive de son travail avec 5 caractères supplémentaires et un commentaire beaucoup plus étendu, qui occupe les pp. 81 à 350. La première édition du texte grec des célèbres "Caractères" du philosophe grec, vit le jour à Nuremberg en 1527, accompagnée de la version latine par Pirkheimer. Mais c'est cette traduction commentée de Casaubon qui fit autorité. Le savant Scaliger lui écrivait notamment, après en avoir pris connaissance : "A peine j'eus gouté à tes 'Charactères de Théophraste' j'en fus transporté. Je ne pus m'empêcher de faire ton éloge avec toute la chaleur que donne l'amitié et cependant tout ce que j'ai pu dire reste très en dessous de ce que mérite ton génie". Le travail de Casaubon a servi de modèle aux études ultérieures et notamment à La Bruyère qui traduisit d'abord Théophraste, avant de l'imiter et d'ajouter à ceux du philosophe grec, ses propres "Caractères" inspirés des mœurs de son temps. "Il semble établi que la traduction de Théophraste a été faite par La Bruyère surtout d'après la traduction latine de Casaubon complétée par le commentaire de cet érudit" … [Click Below for Full Description]

CALLOT, JACQUES (1592-1635).
Oblong octavo 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches, recent full calf album lettered on the upper board. Engraved title and 23 engraved plates- the complete series. All plates trimmed to the plate mark and laid on grey paper. PLATES ON 17TH CENTURY LAID PAPER- exact date and state not known but plates unnumbered. Some plates with slight paper flaws. Average plate size 95x77mm. One of Callot's finest series of etchings, showing the dances, postures, gesticulations and mock-fights of the masked and costumed popular entertainers known as Zanni. Callot first witnessed the improvisational performances of these buffoons and commedia dell' arte characters in all their violent and obscene contortions at Florence in 1612, and drew them on the spot. Punch, Scaramouch, Pantaloon, Scapino and the Captain--stock figures by then--are featured, but also more obscure, sometimes threatening, types such as Fracasso, Giurlo, Coviello, Cocodrillo, Zerbino, Cucurucu and Babeo. Their origins lie in the 16th century in Bergamo and Venice, as well as Naples (Christies).

1612. Incisione in rame, coloritura d'epoca, mm 355x500 tratta da "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum", opera che ebbe un successo immediato e numerosissime riedizioni. Il "Theatrum" è considerato il primo atlante moderno, comprendente carte di tutte le zone del mondo; la geniale intuizione di Abraham Ortel (1528-1598), che latinizzò il proprio nome in Ortelius, fu quella di riunire in un unico corpus la produzione cartografica eterogenea del periodo, costituendo la base per un'impresa editoriale di enorme successo, pubblicata dal 1570 al 1612. Di grande livello decorativo la carta riporta informazioni da Marco Polo in poi e risulta una sintesi di tutte le più moderne informazioni dell'area. Taiwan viene mappata per la prima volta, indicata come I. Fermosa. Oltre all'India ed all'arcipelago indonesiano citati nel titolo, la carta rappresenta anche le regioni dell'estremo oriente, compresi Cina e Giappone.

ORTELIUS ABRAHAM
Antwerp, 1612. Copper engraving,original color, mm 340x470; italian text and number 9 on verso. From the 1612 edition. Good condition in very early color, partly oxidated like usual for the italian 1612 edition.A very early map of the Spanish empire in the New World, made up of 3 maps on one sheet, the largest showing central and South America (Peru); the second showing Florida and the southeast; and the third, Guastecan (Huasteca), a northeastern province of Mexico. The map of Florida is important as it is the first regional map of the southeastern section of North America.The map revealed little information on the interior of North America, but the details presented have been definitely linked with known features. The village of Aijx undoubtedly became known to the Spaniards as Ais, and the Mississippi, though distorted, appeared as the R.de S.Spiritu , the name given it by early Spanish explorers. Tascalisa lies on the map as closely as possible to where today's Tuscaloosa, Alabama is. The Chaves map published by Ortelius was, therefore, one of the earliest printed maps of the territory based on actual observations. Burden 57: "(La Florida) is one of the very few maps printed in the sixteenth century that was based upon original Spanish sources. They were very protective of their knowledge of the Americas, a considerable source of their wealth. The author of this map, Geronimo de Chaves, was the Cosmographer Royal to Philip II of Spain". The map of Florida is considered to be the first to show any interior detail of the present day United States, and was set the standard … [Click Below for Full Description]

LONGOMONTANUS Christian Severin (1562-1647)
TYPIS HENRICI WALDKIRCHIJ, 1612. Legatura moderna in mezza pergamena con autore e titolo breve manoscritti al dorso; guardie nuove. 83-(1 b.) pagine numerate, compreso il frontespizio con titolo iscritto all'interno di bella e ampia cornice silografica; in alto a destra, numerazione 4 manoscritta a penna; all'interno, testatine e capolettera silografati e numerosi diagrammi incisi. Prima, rarissima edizione, cui ne seguirono una nel 1627 e un'altra nel 1640. Sconosciuto alle più note bibliografie. Longomontanus, astronomo e astrologo danese, è meglio conosciuto per la sua associazione e il supporto dato a Tycho Brahe. Divenne assistente di Brahe nel 1589 e soggiornò nel grande osservatorio astronomico di Brahe a Uraniborg. Sul piano teorico, pur fedele al suo maestro, si aprì alle cosiderazioni sul movimento rotatorio della terra. Cfr. DSB, "?In addition to his astronomical interests, Severin also displayed considerable enthusiasm for pure mathematics, but with notably less success. Concerned principally with the quadrature of the circle, he believed that he had solved the problem with a precise evaluation of pi as equal to 78/43 root of 3?.".

AMELONGHI Girolamo (e altri)
appresso Antonio Guiducci, In Firenze, 1612. In-12, pp. 141, (3). Segnatura: A-F12. Legatura in tutto marocchino ottocentesco, piatti incorniciati da filetto in oro e fregi in oro accantonati; dorso a 4 nervi delimitati da filetti in oro, titoli in oro. Lievi fisiologiche bruniture. Esemplare è appartenuto a Giovan Battista Fagiuoli, fra i più noti poeti burleschi dell'epoca sua (1660-1742), il cui autografo è posto al piede del frontespizio. Raro. Prima edizione collettiva dei tre curiosi poemi, in un primo tempo pubblicati solo separatamente. Ludovico Antonio Muratori, per non averli mai veduti (come sostenne il Fontanini), li nominò a torto e sbrigativamente sardellàrie, cioè nanerie infantili e da dozzina, quando rivestono in realtà un'importanza tutt'altro che trascurabile in ordine alla formazione del genere eroicomico della poesia nazionale. La Gigantéa, in cui si narra la guerra dei giganti per cacciare gli dei dal cielo, è opera di Girolamo Amelonghi, detto il gobbo di Pisa; la Nanéa, replica alla Gigantéa in cui si racconta la cacciata dei giganti da parte di perfidi nani, è di Michelangelo Serafini|; la Guerra de mostri, forse la più vivace e meglio congeniata (benché mai completata) della trilogia, nella quale si accenna alla campagna vittoriosa dei mostri per scalzare l'alleanza di giganti e nani, è parto di Anton Francesco Grazzini. Bibliografia: Gamba, 534: "molto raro". Melzi 424. Brunet, II, 1335. Graesse, II-613; Quadrio: VI-724. Bodleian Library, p. 43. Si veda anche G. Crimi e C.

Legatura in piena pelle coeva, piatti inquadrati da filetti in oro; dorso (anticamente restaurato) a 6 nervi con fregi in oro agli scomparti.Celebre opera greca latinizzata da Jacques Dalechamps ed assistita editorialmente da Isaac Casaubon, preferibile a ogni altra edizione per la sobria eleganza della traduzione e per il ricco apparato esegetico che la correda. Divisa in 15 libri (i primi due, parti del terzo, undicesimo e quindicesimo, esistono ab antiquo solo in epitome), i Deipnosofisti è strutturata in forma di dialogo fra ventinove filosofi radunati a banchetto.La conversazione che si tiene presso l'intellettuale simposio è una miniera di informazioni sulla musica, la danza, i costumi, i giochi, il tempo libero, la sessualità e, in modo particolare, le abitudini culinarie del mondo antico. Per questo particolare aspetto essa è oggi ritenuta una tra le fonti informative più precise ed estese per la storia della gastronomia.

Title page printed in red and black. Megiser's full-page coat of arms at the end of the Turkish-Latin dictionary. Contemporary vellum binding using a 15th century Biblical manuscript leaf (Daniel 13, "Susannah and the Elders"), with handwritten title to spine. Two Arabic inscriptions to upper cover (one reading "Law kana Allah ma'na, man yakunu 'alaina" - translated from Romans 8:31, "If God be with us, who can be against us?"). First edition of "the first full-fledged Turkish grammar to be published in Europe" (Smitskamp), "a landmark in Turkish studies" (Navari), one of the most important works produced by the versatile scholar Megiser (1554-1619) from Stuttgart. This copy contains not only the rare additional printed dedication to the Carinthian nobleman Hector von Ernau, but also the extensive handwritten notes of the contemporary Arabist Johann Melchior Mader. In fact, this unique volume constitutes the fullest document extant about an only vaguely known and unresearched triangle of early 17th century enthusiasts of Arabic: Megiser, Ernau, and Mader, only the first of whom achieved fame. - The most obvious asset of the present copy lies in Mader's generous scholarly annotations both in the text as well as on the … [Click Below for Full Description]

In Venezia, Appresso Giovanni Alberti, 1612. PRIMA edizione. In folio (cm. 32,2); bella legatura in piena pelle del Settecento a 5 nervi con titolo e ricchi fregi in oro al dorso; pp.  (28), 960. Tagli rossi.  Mancanze con antichi restauri e foderature al frontespizio  ed alle prime 7 carte con mancanze di testo agli angoli superiori.  Rilegato nel Settecento senza le ultime 104 pagine (Indice delle voci e locuzioni latine) dopo "Il Fine" del Vocabolario. Il "Vocabolario", intorno al quale si comincio' a discutere nel 1591, divenne l'attività preminente dei Cruscanti. La prima edizione in un unico volume uscì a Venezia nel 1612. Nella compilazione del vocabolario, che costituisce il primo lessico moderno, la C. si attenne strettamente al criterio del fiorentinismo arcaizzante, criterio espresso anche nella prefazione. Pur dando la prevalenza alla lingua letteraria, gli accademici accolsero largamente i termini d'uso specie per le arti e i mestieri. Nonostante le dispute e le numerose censure che seguirono alla pubblicazione del "Vocabolario" , esso si impose subito e servì da modello alle opere analoghe di altre nazioni. La pubblicazione del Vocabolario della Crusca costituisce un momento estremamente importante per la questione della lingua; sostanzialmente tutte le discussioni sull'argomento, fino ad A. Manzoni, saranno imperniate sull'accettazione o sul rifiuto della lingua della Crusca. Printing and the mind of man, n.115. Axs

Daß diese Behauptung von den Landständen schließlich ohne Widerspruch hingenommen wurde, war das wichtigste Ergebnis des Landtags von 1612".
