        Tabula Russiae ex autographo, quod delineandum curavit Foedor filius Tzaris Borois desumta . MDCXIIII

      Amsterdam 1613 - Splendido esemplare, in coloritura coeva, della carta della Russia di Hessel Gerritz, con un largo cartiglio di Mosca e la pianta di Archangelsckagoroda. Esemplare nel terzo stato, pubblicato da Joannes Blaeu ad Amsterdam, intorno al 1660 circa. Questo raffinata e rara mappa è stato compilato sulla base dei manoscritti di Isaac Massa riportati dalla Russia, al quale si dice sia da attribuire che il grande inserto con Mosca. La mappa è stata pubblicata per la prima volta da Hessel Gerritsz nel 1613. Blaeu la pubblicò dopo aver acquisito la lastra dopo la morte di Gerritsz, avvenuta nel 1632. Questa edizione del Blaeu, ha il testo in lingua olandese al verso. La mappa ha molte caratteristiche interessanti e decorative, tra cui: un piano dettagliato di Mosca, con una legenda di diciassette lettere di edifici pubblici e chiese di rilievo; una rosa dei venti e un galeone nel Mar Caspio; una piccola veduta del porto settentrionale di Arcangelo; tre uomini russi in costume tipico e un bel cartiglio per titolo e dedica. La mappa è di grande importanza nella storia della Russia. Come espresso nel cartiglio, il progetto è stato ideato personalmente dallo Zar di Russia Feodor II Godunov (1589-1605), quando era solo adolescente. Feodor, figlio dello zar Boris Godunov, era un giovane sovrano, molto intelligente e promettente, noto per la sua raffinata educazione. Fu ucciso dai suoi oppositori nel 1605 quando aveva solo 16 anni. Tabula Russiae ex autographo, quod delineandum curavit Foedor filius Tzaris Boris desumta; et ad fluvios Dwinam, Zuchanam, aliaque loca, quatum ex tabulis et notitiis ad nos delatis fieri potunt, amplificata: ac Magno Domino, Tzari, et Magno Duci Michaeli Foedrowits omnium Rußorum, Autocratori Wolodimeriae, Moscoviae et Novogardiae, Tzari Cazaniae, Tzari Astracaniae, Tzari Siberiae, Domino Plescoviae Magno Duci Smolenscoviae, Otweriae, Iugoriae, Permiae, Wiatkiae, Bulgariae etc: Item Domino et Mogno Duci Novogardiae Inferioris etc: Domino Rgionum Iveriae Kartalinie et Groesiniae Tzari etc: dedicata ab Hesselo Gerardo M.DC.XIIII. Example of the third state, published by Joannes Blaeu, Amsterdam 1660 ca. Fine old color example of Hessel Gerritsz's map of Russia, with the large inset of Moscow and plan of Archangelsckagoroda. Blaeu’s reissue of Hessel Gerritsz’s rare and influential map of Russia. This fine map was compiled from manuscripts brought back from Russia, by Isaac Massa to whom the large inset plan of Moscow is said to be attributed. The map was first issued by Hessel Gerritsz in 1613. Blaeu published it after acquiring the plate after Gerritsz’s death in 1632. This edition has Dutch text on the verso. This superb map has many interesting and decorative features, including; a detailed inset plan of Moscow, complete with a seventeen letter key of prominent public buildings and churches; a compass rose and a galleon in the Caspian Sea; a small inset view of the northerly port of Archangel; three Russian men in local dress and a magnificent map title and dedication. The map has a very important place in the history of Russia. As mentioned in the cartouche, the draft was made personally by the Czar of Russia Feodor II Godunov (1589 – 1605), while he was only in his mid-teens. Feodor, a son of Czar Boris Godunov, was a highly intelligent and promising young ruler of Russia, known for his fine education. He was murdered by his opponents in 1605 when he was only 16 years old. Schilder, MCN IV, S. 78f.; Bagrow/C. S. 58 u. vgl. S. 52ff.; Koeman II, 1800:2.2. Dimensioni 575 480mm

Folio (8 by 12 inches), early full dark brown calf rebacked with original spine laid down, raised bands, renewed morocco spine label. $5800.First edition of Purchas' survey of numerous expeditions—valuable for ""having preserved some record of early voyages otherwise unknown"" (DNB)—with two books dedicated to the North and South American continents, handsomely bound.The chaplain to the Archbishop of Canterbury, Purchas ""drew on the notes of hundreds of classical and contemporary travelers to compile this valuable collection. Though some accounts are clearly fantastical and inaccurate, taken as a whole they contain much of value, and are frequently the only sources of information upon important questions affecting the history of exploration"" (Britannica). To produce his ""sort of religious geography,"" Purchas draws ""largely uponÂ… the historians and political geographers of all ages"" (Cox I:6). His chapters on America include ""Of the New World and Why it is Named America,"" ""Of the first Knowledge, Habitation and Discoveries of the New World"" and ""Of the Religion and Rites of the Virginians,"" and he offers extraordinary descriptions of Native Americans.

        Hechos de Don García Hurtado de Mendoça, Marqués de Cañete...

      Madrid: Imprenta Real, 1613. Small quarto, with an engraved title; modern morocco. A prime source for the history of Mendaña and Quiros. Mendaña's discovery of the Solomons in 1568 is narrated (pp. 228-37), and there is a long account of his second voyage (pp. 238-90), which was despatched from Peru in 1595 to colonise the Solomons and to continue the search for the Southern Continent. Although Mendaña failed to rediscover the Solomons and died along with many of his crew - the chief pilot, Quiros, finally guiding the survivors to safety in the Philippines - his second voyage is especially significant marking the first discovery of an important Polynesian island group, the Marquesas (named "Las Marquesas de Mendoça" after the viceroy) and led directly to Quiros's own expedition of 1605 and his celebrated quest for Terra Australis Incognita.Suárez de Figueroa's account is based on the manuscript Narrative of his friend Quiros, who had suggested him to the King in 1610 as chronicler for the proposed expedition to the Southern Continent; Celsus Kelly has established that Suárez de Figueroa 'incorporates as his own many phrases, paragraphs and even at times entire pages, except for minor alterations, from the 'Narrative' of Quiros on the Mendaña 1567 and 1595 voyages. For this he must surely have received Quiros's permission since they were both in Madrid at that time...'. This is one of two principal contemporary printed sources for Mendaña's momentous voyage, the other being Quiros's report to Don Antonio de Morga published in the exceedingly rare Sucesos de las Islas Filipinas, Mexico, 1609The text, an account of the deeds of Don García Hurtado de Mendoça (captain-general of Chile and from 1590-96 viceroy of Peru), was commissioned by his family; it describes the wars against the Araucano Indians in Chile and Don García's rule as viceroy; the incursions of Drake, Cavendish and Hawkins are touched upon.This is the first of two issues of the first edition (a second issue appeared three years later). This has always been an extremely rare book, and at least two famous collectors had enough trouble finding it to write about the difficulty: Alexander Dalrymple states in his Historical Collection that he had 'not been able to procure a copy of Figueroa' until, when his first volume was in the press in 1769, he acquired a copy 'from Spain' and was able to add the final section to his book; and Rex Nan Kivell wrote to Bjarne Kroepelien (quoted in the Kroepelien catalogue): 'I was delighted to get your list of books and am very envious of them, particularly... your Suárez de Figueroa... [which] I have been hunting for twenty years'. With occasional light spotting internally, but a fine copy in a modern binding.

        English Husbandman

London: T.S. for Roger Jackson, 1623. WITH: HERESBACH, Conrad. Foure bookes of husbandrie. London: John Wight, 1586. WITH: HARTLIB, Samuel. The Compleat Huband-man. London: Edward Brewster, 1659. WITH: An Interrogatory Relating More Particularly to the Husbandry and Natural History of Ireland. London: Richard Wodenothe, 1652. Five volumes bound as one. Octavo, period-style full paneled calf gilt, red morocco spine label, raised bands, marbled endpapers. $6500.First and early editions of five late 16th-mid 17th century tracts on animal husbandry, farming, and horse-riding, with woodcut illustrations and initials.One of EnglandÂ’s most prolific early writers on animal husbandry and sporting pastimes, and champion of “improved methods of horse-breeding and of horse-racing” (DNB), Gervase Markham tailored his works toward educating the landed classes in raising and caring for animals, as well as introducing them to the various “gentlemanly” pursuits and responsibilities. He is credited with importing the first Arabian horse into England. His English Husbandman contains “the knowledge of the true nature of every soil within this kingdom; how to plow itÂ… together with the art of planting, grafting and gardening after our latest and rarest fashion.” In Cheape and Good Husbandry, Markham discusses the breeding and raising of horse, cattle, sheep, pigs and other animals and discusses “the whole art of riding great-horses.” The Four Bookes of Husbandrie, by German Konrad Heresbach, here translated by poet Barnabe Googe, was later edited by Markham in 1614 (thus possibly explaining its presence in this collection, bound just after MarkhamÂ’s 1613 English Husbandman).Samuel Hartlib, author of The Compleat Husband and An Interrogatory—which is actually an appendix to the 1652 second edition of Samuel Hartlib His Legacie (“his best-known collection of tracts on agriculture” [DSB])—was one the 17th centuryÂ’s great polymaths and perhaps its most important scientific correspondent. In addition to encouraging many young scientists, he corresponded with many of the continental scientists of his day and served as an important “source of communication among scientists in the decades before the formation of scientific societies” (DSB). HartlibÂ’s Legacy with one signature (pages 9-16) bound in twice; text complete. Text in both black letter and roman type. It is notoriously difficult to establish edition for MarkhamÂ’s works, as he published prolifically but routinely republished works under slightly different names. He began publishing on horses and horsemanship as early as 1593; this is the first edition for English Hubandman and third edition for Cheape and Good Husbandry. Heresbach first published in English in 1577. The Compleat Husband-man is a first edition; the Interrogatory is an appendix to the second edition of Samuel Hartlib His Legacie. Wing 17355, 17336, 13198. STC H980, H990. Occasional early underlining and notations to text.Repair to title page of Cheape and Good Husbandry, occasional light foxing and very faint dampstaining. Beautifully bound.

        Sorgum fructu rubro // Sorgo fructu albo

      Eichstatt, 1613. Hand-coloured engraving. Basil Besler published "Hortus Eystettensis", the earliest large folio botanical, at Eichstatt near Nuremburg, in 1613. He worked on the drawings for the 374 copper engravings over a period of sixteen years using the plants in the garden of Bishop Johann Conrad von Gemmingen, his patron. Depicted in this florilegium were flowers, herbs, vegetables and newly discovered plants such as tobacco and peppers. Besler was, in modern terms, a botanist and horticulturalist, and he was familiar with real and alleged medicinal properties of various plants. Besler had the good fortune to live at a time when exotic plants were being shipped to Europe from all over the world. The garden that he organized and illustrated for his patron was both ornamental and experimental, and the large book he had engraved after his drawings was unique. The prints, made by a team of master engravers, are strong and exquisitely done.

[Hudson's and Linschoten's voyages to the North; Quiros's memorial concerning the discovery of Terra Australis incognita; Massa's description of Liberia].

      Frankfurt: M. Becker, 1613. Folio, printed title within pictorial engraved border, divisional half-title preceding plates, and six engraved maps and views (three double-page); a fine copy in dark green crushed morocco by Sangorski & Sutcliffe. Frankfurt, Matthaus Becker, 1613. A rare and notably early printing of the famous Quiros memorial about the discovery of Terra Australis, the fifth part of the world.This is the first edition of the tenth part of De Bry's classic collection of "minor" or "petits" voyages - that is, voyages towards the East Indies and Asia, as opposed to the "major" voyages towards the Americas. The De Bry collection is essentially a history and anthology of the Dutch voyages to the East Indies and the Pacific by way of the Cape of Good Hope.Quiros, the last of the great Spanish discoverers, sailed on the Mendana expedition across the Pacific in 1595, and then commanded his own expedition of 1605-06 in search of the 'Terra Australis', actually discovering Tahiti and other Pacific Islands, and reaching the New Hebrides. His second-in-command, Luis Vaez de Torres, took one of the expedition's ships through the consequently named Torres Strait, and probably sighted Cape York.The remainder of Quiros's life was spent petitioning the King for an expedition with settlers to Terra Australis, without success; his secret 'Memorial' to the Spanish Court, which gradually became leaked through Europe in editions such as this, provoked the search for a southern continent that was not finished until Cook's expedition 150 years later.In the Memorial, Quiros compares Terra Australis favourably with America and Asia in regard to size, natural wealth and the possibilities for successful settlement; and though he had actually discovered the New Hebrides, Columbus thought that he had discovered Cathay, and the Quiros Memorial in its importance to Australia may be compared with the celebrated Columbus Letter in its various printings at the end of the fifteenth century in its importance to America. As Dalrymple later wrote, "the discovery of the Southern Continent, whenever and by whomsoever it may have been completely effected, is in justice due to his immortal name... "

        Delle Navigationi et Viaggi raccolta da M. Gio. Battista Ramusio, in tre volume divisi.

      Venice: Giunta, 1613-1583-1606. Three volumes, folio (305 x 205 mm), with 10 double-page or folded maps (seven woodcut, three engraved) and other woodcut maps, plans and illustrations in the text; eighteenth-century mottled calf, spines gilt, gilt edges. A complete set, from the library of the Bute family at Luton Hoo, of the greatest international collection of early travels (the three volumes respectively in sixth, third and third editions, representing the fullest possible text). Ramusio was assiduous in gathering and editing his narratives, some of them accounts published for the first time by him and not otherwise known, and some of which differed from previously printed versions. "In terms of wealth of material no previous compilation of travels could match Ramusio's achievement" (Lach, I p. 208).'The publication of Ramusio's raccolta may be said to open an era in the literary history of voyages and navigation. Instead of accounts carelessly copied and translated from previous collections, perpetuating errors and anachronisms, we find in this valuable work original narrations judiciously selected, carefully printed, and enriched with notices which betray the hand of a scholar of great critical acumen... ' (Harrisse, p. 457).Ramusio's Navigationi et viaggi was 'the first large published collection of historical documents other than collections of laws and decretals; the first large and planned collection of travel documents, and therefore the first approach to a documented history of travel and geography; and if not the first work, certainly the second (after the Novus orbis collection published at Basel in 1532) to imply the concept of a separate literary genre for which we have still no better name than travel narrative' (G. B. Parks, 'Ramusio's literary history', Studies in Philology, 52, 1955, p. 127).The first volume is 'devoted for the most part to Africa and southern Asia. Among its more important relations were included Leo's Africa; the accounts of Cadamosto, da Gama, Cabral, and Vespucci... ; Varthema's travels; Alvares's work on Abyssinia; the description of India and adjacent lands by Thomé Lopes, Duarte Barbosa, and Andrea Corsali; the journeys of Conti and Santo Stephano; and Pigafetta's journal of the Magellan voyage. The second volume... is concerned with Central Asia, Russia, and the Northern Seas. Included in it are the travels of Marco Polo (in a curious composite recension of various texts, resembling most closely the recently discovered codex in Toledo Cathedral); Hayton of Armenia; the Venetian missions to Persia; Paolo Giovo's book on the Turks; and... the journeys of Rubriquis and Odoric, Heberstein's travels in Russia, and the apocryphal voyages of the Zeni to Greenland. The third volume... is purely of American interest, including among its contents Peter Martyr's first three Decades; the entire 1535 edition of Oviedo y Valdes; Cortes's Second, Third and Fourth Letters; Cabeza de Vaca's relation of his wanderings; Coronado's journey; the voyages of Ulloa and Alarcon along the Pacific coast; Xeres's account of the conquest of Peru; Orellana's voyage down the Amazon; as well as the exploits of Verrazano and Jacques Cartier. Ramusio... was pre-eminent as an editor; he handled his material with great skill and produced a collection of unique value... ' (Penrose p. 306).In this set volume I is the sixth edition (1613), volumes II and III are third editions (1583 and 1606 respectively). Each volume went through several editions (volume I in 1550, 1554, 1563, 1588, 1606 and 1613; volume II in 1559, 1574, 1583 and 1606; and volume III in 1556, 1565 and 1606), but only once, in 1606, were all three volumes printed in the same year. It is usual, therefore, for sets to comprise mixed editions. New material was included in some editions; the text represented in the present set is the fullest possible, since volumes I and III are the final editions and nothing was added to the subsequent edition of volume II. A handsome set, this was once in the celebrated library of the earls and marquesses of Bute; the free-endpaper of volume 1 is marked 'Luton', i.e. Luton Hoo in Bedfordshire, the palatial house designed in 1767 for the third earl by Robert Adam. Provenance: Bute family library at Luton Hoo. Title-page of the first volume stained, occasional light soiling and the odd mark or spot elsewhere; heads and tails of spines and joints repaired.

        Cyclamen serotinum folis hederaceis. Cyclamen vulgare Panis porcinus. Cyclaminus longius radiatus camerary..

      Eichstatt. First published 1613. Ca. 165. Engraving, vintage handcoloring, plate mark measures 19 x 15 3/4 inches (48 x 40 cm) on sheet 22 1/2 x 17 3/4 inches. Dampstain to lower margin and left edge just entering the platemark at the lower left and right, tear across lower left corner now archivally repaired but with light discoloration visible from the old tape, text from verso visible. Color seepage onto verso. Thick felt-like paper. This is one of the stunning plates from Hortus Eystettensis, the first great florilegium "splendid in its array of large drawings, magnificent as a record of the plants in a German garden at the beginning of the seventeenth century" (Hunt). The work commemorates the celebrated gardens of its patron, Johann Konrad von Gemmingen, Prince Bishop of Eichstatt. "The book is horticultural rather than botanical, and is the earliest pictorial record of flowers in a single garden. It is divided into Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter sections and is concerned almost entirely with ornamental plants, including florists' flowers and double forms of flowers best left single ... With the outbreak of the Thirty Years War six years after the Bishop's death, the garden deteriorated, and by 1633 the celebrated collection of plants had reverted to a vegetable plot." (Coats). "The plates depict over 1000 flowers representing 667 species, many of them exotics appearing for the first time. The original drawings ... took sixteen years to complete; ten artists and engravers were involved, the most important being Wolfgang Kilian of Augsburg. The author, Basilius Besler (1561-1629), was a Nuremberg apothecary and botanist. The work was completed in Autumn 1613 and three hundred copies were issued. The copper plates survived until 1817, when they were melted down by the Royal Mint in Munich." (de Belder catalogue #23). The work was reprinted in 1640 and 1713. It is not known what edition this plate is from; the handcolor is later, but not recent. This plate (from the selection of autumnal plants) depicts an ivy-leaved cyclamen and two European cyclamens, all from the Primulaceae family.

        Descrizzione della barriera, e della mascherata, fatte in Firenze a' XVII. et a' XIX. di Febbraio 1612 al serenissimo signor Prencipe d'Urbino.

      Florence, Bartolomeo Sermartelli and brothers, 1613 - 4to (212 x 150 mm), pp [iv] 112, with large woodcut printer's ornament on title; a fine, crisp copy in contemporary vellum, lettered in gilt on an orange ground on spine, blue edges. First edition of this account of a Medici court masque in which Galileo's discoveries of the satellites of Jupiter are heralded and the satellites appear as characters on stage. Villifranchi reports on the Medici festivities organized for the Carnival of 1612. On p 32 Galileo Galilei is celebrated for his 'marvellous telescope' and discovery of the satellites of Jupiter; these were staged for the first time in the allegorical representation of the planet: 'E piu a basso tra le nuvole apparivano le Quattro Stelle erranti intorno a Giovee, ritrovate dal Signor Galilei Galilei Fiorentino, Mathematica di Sua Altezza ingegno rarissimo, e singolare a tempi nostril per opera del maraviglioso Occhiale ?'This work 'includes verse by G.A. Cicognini for the Comparsa de' Cavalieri delle Stelle Medicee (pp 31-48)' (Harvard catalogue).'Although Galileo was not successful in his first attempts to tie the court writers to his wagon, the Medicean stars eventually became an integral part of the discourse of the court. The medal celebrating Galileo's discovery of the satellites was eventually struck. Jupiter sitting on a cloud with the four stars circling about him was presented as an emblem of Cosimo II, whose effigy occupied the other side of the medal. The stars were represented in sonnets, in theatrical machines, in operas, in medals, and in frescoes celebrating the divine pedigree of the house of Medici. We encounter them again in the most important court spectacle of the carnival of 1613 [i.e. 1612] - the barriera of 17 February. It began at two o'clock Florentine time in the theater of the Pitti Palace in front of a selected courtly audience. After a virtuoso display of spectacular theatrical machines and effects designed by the court engineer Giulo Parigi, the spectacle deployed its mythological plot. Cupid set his own realm over Tuscany, inaugurating a Golden Age, but peace was soon threatened. Cupid and his knights (six court pages) were faced by a monstrous dragon spitting flames and smoke and twelve Furies led by Nemesis. Although the dragon, Nemesis, and the Furies were eventually made to disappear into a trap conveniently connected to hell, Cupid and Tuscany were not safe yet. Sdegno Amoroso (Disdain of Love) and his five ferocious and barbarous looking "Egyptian knights" jumped on stage from the hellmouth. A new tilt began, but peace and Tuscany's Golden Age were quickly re-established by divine (Cosimo I's?) intervention. Thunder was heard, and Jupiter arrived on a shimmering cloud (part of a very complicated machine that changed in appearance as it moved about the stage). Jupiter was not alone: 'Down below, among the clouds, appeared the four stars that circle Jupiter discovered by Galileo Galilei from Florence, Mathematician to His Highness, with the marvellous spyglass, and like the ancients who transposed to the sky their greatest heroes, he - having discovered these stars - called them Medicee, and has dedicated the first to His Most Serene Highness, the second to Prince Don Francesco, the third to Prince Don Carlo, the fourth to Prince Don Lorenzo'. The machine brought Jupiter close to the grand duchess, to whom he sang an aria; then it slowly disappeared from the stage. In the process the four Medicean stars turned into four flesh-and-blood knights: 'After Jupiter finished his song some thunders were heard, the cloud vanished and there appeared four stars which soon turned into four knights who stood up'. The Cyclops (who had come on stage right before Jupiter's arrival) handed thunderbolts to the four knights. With such weapons, they were ready to start the new joust in Jupiter's name. The name of the tilt was 'The Arrival of the Knights of the Medicean Stars'. Peace soon followed. The ladies in the audience joined the knights on stage [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Holy Bible, Conteyning the Old Testament, and the New: Newly Translated

      London: by Robert Barker, 1613-1611 - The Great “She” Bible, the “authorized version” or King James Bible, one of the greatest monuments of English literature. This edition is known as the “She” Bible for the reading “She went into the citie” in Ruth 3:15. In this copy he error “Judas” for “Jesus” in Matthew 26:36 is corrected with a pasted-on slip. Fry styles this the “first edition, second issue,” though it is more properly the second edition. “The general title is usually dated 1613, though the NT title bears the date 1611. Probably the greater part of the book was printed in 1611, but the publication, for some reason or other, was delayed till 1613. . . . Smith suggests [the delay resulted from] an accident in the printing-office which destroyed a large number of sheets” (Herbert). One of the masterpieces of the English language, the King James Bible is surely the greatest literary work ever created by committee. In the preface, Miles Smith, one of the dozens of translators, commented on the importance of the work: “Translation it is that openeth the window, to let in the light; that breaketh the shell, that we may eat the kernel; that putteth aside the curtain, that we may look into the most Holy place; that removeth the cover of the well, that we may come by the water.” “For every Englishman who had read Sidney or Spenser, or had seen Shakespeare acted at the Globe, there were hundreds who had read or heard the Bible with close attention as the words of God. The effect of the continual domestic study of the book upon the national character, imagination and intelligence for nearly three centuries to come, was greater than that of any literary movement in our annals, or any religious movement since the coming of St. Augustine” (G. M. Trevelyan). Complete copies of this Bible in early bindings are among the most sought-after books in the English language. Printing and the Mind of Man 114. Herbert 319. Folio. Some staining and edge wear. Preliminaries restored. Engraved map of the Holy Land, frayed at edges, supplied. Contemporary calf over oak boards, brass fittings, rebacked, leather worn, binding expertly restored. A very good copy. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Acorus cum suo iulo. Scordium. Chamaedrys".

      - Kupferstich von Basilius Besler aus Hortus Eystettensis, Eichstätt ca. 1613, koloriert. Ca. 47 x 38 cm (H). In Goldleiste mit aquarelliertem Passepartout gerahmt. Prachtvolles Blatt aus dem "Hortus Eystettensis", dem großartigsten Werk botanischer Buchillustration des 17. Jahrhunderts mit Kalmus, Lauch- und Echten Gamander. Zu verdanken ist der Hortus dem kunstsinnigen Johann Conrad von Gemmingen, Bischof von Eichstätt (reg. 1594-1612), der seinen Regierungssitz in ein Fürstenschloss umbauen ließ, mit prächtigen Gärten darunter. Der Nürnberger Apotheker Basilius Besler (1561-1629) legte im Auftrag dazu eine botanische Prachtpublikation vor, den "Hortus Eystettensis", den Garten von Eichstätt. Erstmals 1613 erschienen zeigt das Werk auf 367 ganzseitigen Kupfertafeln insgesamt 1084 Pflanzen. Ob diese allerdings tatsächlich alle im fürstbischöflichen Garten auf Willibaldsburg gehalten wurden, ist nicht gesichert.

        A Treatise of Metallica. But not that which was published by Mr. Simon Sturtevant vpon his Patent, which is now by order cancelled and made voyd, by reason of his standing out-lawed at the time of the grant, and so still continuing, and his neglect, and not performance of the workes. Whereupon Priviledge, by Patent, is granted by the Kings most excellent Maiesty, to Iohn Rovenzon, Esquire, for the making of Iron, and other Mettals and Materials with Sea-cole, Pit-cole, &c. for one and thirty yeares. According to which Patent and direction therein, this Treatise, composed by the same Iohn Rovenzon, is published in Print before the end of Easter Tearme, viz. the 15 of May. 1613. And containeth a briefe Explanation, Demonstration, or Discouery of the Inventions priviledged, and the meanes, Instruments, Engins, Furnaces, &c. with the materials, things, and workes to be made by the said Fewels. The charge of an Iron-worke to worke with Sea-cole, is set downe in the latter end of this Booke

      [15] leaves (lacking the first blank but with the final blank leaf). Small 4to, early 20th-cent. vellum over boards. London : Printed [by N. Okes] for Thomas Thorp, 1613. First edition and an extremely rare book. This text was reprinted along with Simon Sturtevant's Metallica (1612) and Dud Dudley's Metallum Martis (1665) in 1854. This is "the earliest work to describe the successful smelting of iron and other metals with coal rather than with charcoal made from wood…Estremely rare. A milestone work on metallurgical chemistry."-Neville, II, p. 401. "The problem of expanding the manufacture of iron in the British Isles after about 1600 came to be bound up with the replacement of wood by coal in the furnaces and the forges at which pig iron was converted into bar iron…How, then, did the conquest by coal of the smelting-processes in Great Britain come about? Two men claimed to have solved the problem of substituting coals for charcoal as fuel in the blast-furnaces at which iron ore was smelted and run into moulds, at the very beginning of the seventeenth century. Simon Sturtevant, who was apparently of Dutch origin, and John Rovenzon published treatises on metallurgy in 1612 and 1613 advocating the adoption of coal-burning blast furnaces, which they suggest are feasible though they fail to describe the processes that they profess to have invented to bring it about."-Singer et al., eds., A History of Technology, Vol. III, pp. 78-79. Sturtevant was issued a patent in 1611 for his proposal to use coal instead of wood or charcoals in smelting iron and other metals. But in a few months, the grant was withdrawn and another issued in its place to John Rovenzon, an assistant to Sturtevant. Rovenzon's A Treatise of Metallica "shows that he had a true conception of the method of manufacture."-Samuel Smiles, Industrial Biography, Chapter 3. A fine copy. The Huth (with bookplate) - William Augustus White (his signature dated 23 Sept. 1918) - Harrison D. Horblit (with bookplate) copy. ❧ Duveen, p. 183-(1854 reprint only). Hoover 697-(1854 reprint only). Partington, II, p. 61.
