(druk) 48 x 38,5 cm.Besler (1561 '" 1629) was een gerespecteerd apotheker en botanicus uit het Beierse Neurenberg. Hij was curator van de tuin van Johann Konrad von Gemmingen, prins bisschop van Eichstätt. De bisschop had de enige belangrijke Europese botanische tuin buiten Italië.Besler had 16 jaar nodig om de tuin in Eichstätt in kaart te brengen. Zijn zgn. Hortus Eystettensis legde voor het eerst nadruk op de esthetische weergave van de planten, dit in tegenstelling tot planten- en kruidenboeken in de eeuwen ervoor, waarbij het gebruikelijk was schetsmatige afbeeldingen op te nemen.De Hortus Eystettensis veranderde daarmee de botanische kunst radicaal.De tuinbloemen, kruiden, fruit en exotische planten werden op ware grootte vol details afgebeeld. Het werk werd voor het eerst uitgegeven in 1613 en bestond uit 367 kopergravures, met in totaal 1.084 soorten.Het boek kwam op de markt in twee versies: als zwart-wit naslagwerk en een luxe uitgave zonder tekst. De de luxe versie werd verkocht voor het exorbitante bedrag van 500 florijnen.De Hortus volgt de vier seizoenen, waarin eerst de bloei en daarna de vruchtvormingsfasen worden afbeeld.Prijs: € 2.150,-.

        [Stem on the Indian Fig] Folium Opuntiae cum flore & fructu; [Fruit of the Indian Fig] Fructus Opuntiae; [Fruit of the Indian Fig] Fructus Opuntiae dimidiodissectus

      Eichstatt, 1613. Engraving. Very good condition apart from some slight offsetting, mild creasing, and a few skillfully repaired tears and small losses in the bottom margin. 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.

        [COMPLETE FOUR GOSPELS]. [The Holy Bible: conteyning the Old Testament, and the New. Newly Translated out of the Originall Tongues: and with the former Translations diligently compared and revised, by his Maiesties speciall Commandement. Appointed to be read in Churches]

      London: Robert Barker, 1613-1611. Second folio edition or "She" Bible. Very good antiquarian condition. Folio. 66 consecutive leaves, collates A-L6, COMPLETE THUS. In a spectacular "Coptic" binding by Joseph Adams of Eidolon House: heavy wooden boards, upper cover adorned with elaborate chased metal circular ornament in the early Coptic style, the 11 gatherings of text and two gatherings of endleaves sewn on heavy linen thread in Coptic manner; title soiled and a little frayed along edges; E3 significantly soiled, E4 inner margins extended with some loss, several leaves repaired; D2-D6 headlines cropped. With the celebrated title-page to the New Testament engraved in wood by the Swiss artist Christopher Switzer, possibly after a design by Rowland Lockey (monograms appear in the niches on either side of the image of the sacrificed lamb on the altar). THE FOUR GOSPELS FROM THE GREAT "SHE" BIBLE OF THE KING JAMES BIBLE, "First Edition, Second Issue" (according to Fry), or "Second Edition" (Herbert). This translation of the Bible is widely considered a towering achievement in English literature, as both beautiful and scholarly. The King James, or "Authorized" Version of the Bible has been called "the most influential version of the most influential book in the world, in what is now its most influential language," "the most important book in English religion and culture", and "the most celebrated book in the English-speaking world." Our copy of the King James Bible is known as the "Great She" Bible, designated as Fry's "first edition, second issue, without reprints." Herbert contradicts this with the statement: "Others more correctly style it the 'second folio edition, 1613, 1611,' inasmuch as it deserves to be reckoned a distinct edition." The bibliographic complexities between the two are legion and legendary. "A number of typographical errors appeared in the 1611 printing of the King James Bible. One of the best known is in Ruth 3:15, which reads "he went" where the context calls for "she went." This error was corrected in the 1613 reissue of the Bible. The two printings are referred to as the "He Bible" and the "She Bible." In 1613 the type was completely reset and the text was reprinted, but the title pages from the 1611 printing were added to the sheets, which is why bibliographers refer to the "She Bible" as a first edition, second issue." (SOURCE: Brigham Young University, The Life and Legacy of the King James Bible, Celebrating 400 Years, exhibition online accessed 1/14/16). David Norton rejects the "first edition, second issue" designation, arguing instead for two separate "editions," but not without considerable qualification. Norton suggests that the "He" Bible sold out quickly, and that Robert Barker began printing sheets of the "She" Bible in order to supply further demand. "Copies were made up intermittently as purchase orders came in. The muddle in Barker's printing house was that, once varying sheets were available, no two copies were made up of the identical sets of sheets. Moreover, sheets continued to be available when the later large folios were made, so some copies of them have sheets from different editions, including sheets from the second edition" (SOURCE: David Norton, A Textual History of the King James Bible, p. 66). In our copy, Matthew 26:36, "Judas" has been corrected to "Jesus" in contemporary manuscript (at Robert Barker's shop?) as commonly. BINDING: An imposing and perfectly sympathetic binding of the Four Gospels, constructed by Joseph Adams of Eidolon House using Coptic sewing techniques that were employed by early Christians in Egypt, and used as early as the 2nd century AD. Coptic bindings, the first true codices, are characterized by one or more sections of paper or parchment sewn through their folds, and attached to each other with chain stitch linkings across the spine, rather than to the thongs or cords running across the spine that characterize European bindings from the 8th century onwards. As typical of Coptic bookbinding structures, no adhesives were used in the construction of the present example, which not only protects but truly enhances the Four Gospels preserved herein. PRINTER: "Robert Barker received no payment for printing the King James Bible from the King, Parliament, or the Church of England; instead, Barker took on a number of financial partners to assume the cost of producing the Bible. The expenses he incurred included the casting of new types, paper and ink, and most costly of all, labor. Each copy of the Bible used 366 sheets of paper, folded so as to produce four printed pages. The pages were gathered into 123 signatures of six leaves each, which were then then arranged and sewn together" (BYU exhibition, supra). CONTENTS: The Gospel According to S.

[5] ff., [86 of 90] pp., [5 of 6] ff. (lacks pp. 85–88, and last leaf [i.e., G8]). The first black-letter quarto edition of the King James version, giving "bring foorth" for Genesis 1:11 and "she went" for Ruth 3:15. Herbert notes that "This and many subsequent issues were produced in close imitation of those black-letter quarto editions of the Geneva Bible which had proved so popular." The => marvelous woodcut title-page border depicts the Twelve Tribes of Israel in panels on the left, balanced by panels depicting the Twelve Apostles on the right, with rondelles of the Four Evangelists. This copy of the Bible has the 1613 date on the main title-page and 1614 on the title-page of the N.T. and in the colophon. It is bound with Speed's genealogies, a Book of Common Prayer, and Herrey's concordances. Provenance: 18th-century ownership signature on Bible title-pages of John Newport; in the 20th century in the Howell Bible Collection, Pacific School of Religion (now properly released). 18th-century full calf with modest gilt double-rule border at cover edges and defining spine compartments; rubbed at corners with spine leather chipped at top. Howell Collection bookplate. BCP with title-leaf supplied in facsimile and a bit tattered with some margins closely cropped; Speed complete with double-page map; Herrey with some foremargins closely cropped touching or costing portions of letters, similarly several small holes (and one a bit larger, in "Preface," repaired) costing bits of type; Sternhold and Hopkins lacking three leaves of text. Bible complete: Two leaves in Exodus having been sometime supplied from another copy and some sidenotes closely shaved sometimes costing (only) a letter or two; some stray ink or other stains and one small hole in one leaf with small loss of text; a child's scribbling in some margins. For the volume as a whole, some scattered waterstaining, spotting, and possible candle-wax stains. => In all a very good copy of an important and sought after edition of the King James Bible.

      Eichstatt, 1613. Engraving. Very good condition apart from some slight offsetting and a small, barely visible foxing mark in the top of the image. 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.

        LE VOYAGE DE L'ILLUSTRE SEIGNEUR ET CHEVALIER FRANCOIS DRACH ADMIRAL D'ANGLETERRE, ALENTOUR DU MONDE

      Paris: Jean Gesselin, 1613. Titlepage vignette. Small octavo. 20th-century morocco bound to contemporary style, tooled and ruled in gilt, spine richly gilt. Leaves A5 and A6 with a small, expert paper repair in lower margin, not affecting text. Near fine. The first French edition of Drake's circumnavigation, translated from the account inserted in the 1589 edition of Hakluyt's PRINCIPAL NAVIGATIONS. The text is traditionally attributed to Francis Pretty, though it is more likely that the information was compiled by Richard Hakluyt himself from three or more sources (see Wagner, DRAKE'S VOYAGE). Wagner notes that the additional information found in this French edition but not in Hakluyt is "small but significant" and calls this "the most complete translation of all." Drake's circumnavigation was one of the most important events in maritime history, and this account must have been eagerly read by the French, who would not undertake their own circumnavigation until Bougainville's voyage in 1766. Scarce, this title was lacking from H.P. Kraus' famous Drake collection. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 613/139. SIR FRANCIS DRAKE AS SEEN BY HIS CONTEMPORARIES, p.60. WAGNER, SPANISH SOUTHWEST 9b.

      Kopergravure uit de magistrale Hortus Eystettensis van de hand van Basilius Besler uitgegeven in 1613. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. (druk) 48 x 38,5 cm.Besler (1561 '" 1629) was een gerespecteerd apotheker en botanicus uit het Beierse Neurenberg. Hij was curator van de tuin van Johann Konrad von Gemmingen, prins bisschop van Eichstätt. De bisschop had de enige belangrijke Europese botanische tuin buiten Italië.Besler had 16 jaar nodig om de tuin in Eichstätt in kaart te brengen. Zijn zgn. Hortus Eystettensis legde voor het eerst nadruk op de esthetische weergave van de planten, dit in tegenstelling tot planten- en kruidenboeken in de eeuwen ervoor, waarbij het gebruikelijk was schetsmatige afbeeldingen op te nemen.De Hortus Eystettensis veranderde daarmee de botanische kunst radicaal.De tuinbloemen, kruiden, fruit en exotische planten werden op ware grootte vol details afgebeeld. Het werk werd voor het eerst uitgegeven in 1613 en bestond uit 367 kopergravures, met in totaal 1.084 soorten.Het boek kwam op de markt in twee versies: als zwart-wit naslagwerk en een luxe uitgave zonder tekst. De de luxe versie werd verkocht voor het exorbitante bedrag van 500 florijnen.De Hortus volgt de vier seizoenen, waarin eerst de bloei en daarna de vruchtvormingsfasen worden afbeeld.Prijs: € 2.150,-.

Twentieth century morocco bound to contemporary style, tooled and ruled in gilt, spine richly gilt Drake's Circumnavigation The first French edition of Drake's circumnavigation, translated from the account inserted in the 1589 edition of Hakluyt's Principal Navigations. The text is traditionally attributed to Francis Pretty, though it is more likely that the information was compiled by Richard Hakluyt himself from three or more sources (see Wagner, Drake's Voyage ). Wagner notes that the additional information found in this French edition but not in Hakluyt is "small but significant" and calls this "the most complete translation of all." Drake's circumnavigation was one of the most important events in maritime history, and this account must have been eagerly read by the French, who would not undertake their own circumnavigation until Bougainville's voyage in 1766. Scarce, this title was lacking from H. P. Kraus's famous Drake.
