      1613 - copper engraved plate; overall size c 57 x 45 cm; plate size c 48 x 40 cm. plate # 154. 1st edition. text on verso.- A magnificent print from the ‘Hortus Eystettensis’ [The Garden of Eichstatt], one of the most amazing botanical books of the 17th century ever produced!- Basilius Besler, an apothecary and botanist from Nurnberg, was the curator of the prince bishop, Johann Konrad von Gemmingen, of Eichstätt in Bavaria. The bishop took great pride in the gardens of his palace, Willibaldsburg, which rivalled other magnificent gardens in Europe, and asked Besler to compile a codex of all the plants growing there which, initially, was started in 1596 and designed by Joachim Camerius the Younger (1534-1598). It took Besler 16 years to complete the task; unfortunately, the bishop died weeks before the publication of the Hortus. - The garden was sacked by Swedish troops in 1633/4 during the 30 Year War but re-opened in 1998 after reconstruction, following closely the outline of the book. What makes the Hortus so unique is that instead of portraying medicinal or culinary plants, the emphasis was on garden flowers, herbs, vegetables and exotic plants. These were depicted almost life size with great detail, and arranged artistically and pleasing to even the modern eye, with an average of 3 plants on one sheet. This arrangement made up a total of 1084 plants on 367 copper engravings on 368 large folio sized sheets. - First published in 1613, 300 copies were printed which took over four years to sell. Two version were produced of the first edition: one with text on verso of the plant print, intended as reference books; the second without text, on quality paper and lavishly hand-coloured, used as presentation or subscriber copies. In 1640 and 1713, two further editions were published. - The luxury version sold for an exorbitant 500 florins, while the plain, uncoloured copies went for 35 florins each. Besler could finally purchase a comfortable home in a fashionable part of Nürnberg at a price of 2 500 florins – five coloured copies' worth of ‘Hortus Eystettensis'!- de Belder 23, 24, 25; Nissen 158- Paper cream coloured; light horizontal centre crease (due to drying on a line); additional smaller printer’s creases; slight text off-set; o/w vg cond.

        Holy Bible, Conteyning the Old Testament, and the New

      The 1613 Folio Edition of the King James Bible[BIBLE IN ENGLISH]. 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: Imprinted...by Robert Barker, 1613.The 1613 folio edition of the King James Bible, distinguishable from the ìHeî and ìSheî Bibles that precede it by its smaller type size making it double columns, with seventy-two lines. The Authorised version.vWith the Apocrypha. Folio (15 3/4 x 10 1/2 inches; 398 x 265 mm.). A4-B4, C6, D4, A6-C6, A6-4M6, 4N4. 508 leaves. Issued with "The genealogies recorded in the Sacred Scriptures" by John Speed, pages ([2], 34 pp.). Without double-page engraved map before text, which is often the case. Engraved general title, representing the twelve tribes. At foot of title-page woodcut: "Cum priuilegio". Engraved New Testament title dated 1613. Black letter. With the "Calendar" which is printed in red and black. Decorative woodcut head- and tail-pieces and initials.Contemporary reversed paneled calf. Boards ruled in blind. Boards with a small amount of rubbing and chipping, mainly along the edges. First title-page laid-down. Some loss to margins, but not affecting the engraving. Leaves A2-A4 (To The Reader) bound on stubs and with lower marginal repairs. From the Calendar, Leaf C2 with marginal repair and Leaves C3-C4 remargined. Leaf D1 with paper repair, only affecting ruled border. Leaves X1-X2 with some tape repairs, and a few holes with some loss of a few words. Leaves PP5-PP6 with some dampstaining. Leaves UUU3-UUU4 with bottom margin repaired, not affecting text. Leaf ZZZ4 with a closed tear, repaired, but with some loss of text. Aside from these few (mostly preliminary) leaves, overall this copy is internally very fresh and clean. A very good copy.ìThe true 1613 folio edition of King Jamesí Bible; easily distinguishable from the other large folio editions by its smaller type... The preliminary leaves are set up as in the other large folio editions, but the text is printed in smaller type with 72 lines instead of 59 lines to the full column." (Herbert, 322).The Genealogies which accompany this book have a similar typographical history to that of the King James Bible itself. John Speed was granted a patent in 1610 for ten years to issue and insert his Genealogies and double-page general map (engraved by Elstrack) in every edition of this Bible.ìThe King James Bible, or the Authorized Version, as it is now commonly (but not strictly accurately) known, was the outcome of the conference summoned at Hampton Court by the King in January 1604, in an attempt to settle the quarrels in the Church of England, arising from the Puritan zeal of some of its members. It was the leader of the Puritan party, John Reynolds, the President of Corpus Christi College, Oxford, who first suggested the idea of a new translation...It has been described as ëthe only literary masterpiece ever to have been produced by a committeeí and was the work of nearly fifty translators, organized in six groups...Being based on a wider range of classical and oriental scholarship than its predecessors, the Authorized Version was a more learned text...No new English translation was produced until the Revised Version of 1881, and the influence of the Authorized Version may best be described in the words of G.M. Trevelyan. ëFor every Englishman who had read Sidney or Spenser, or had seen Shakespeare acted at the Glove, 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 Augustineíî (Printing and the Mind of Man 114, describing the 1611 first edition).Darlow & Moule 249.

        Lachryma Jobi. Latbyris Sylvestris. Latbyris Narbonensis.

      Eichstatt: , c.1613. Copperplate engraving. Later hand-colour. Plate mark size: 485 × 400 mm. Mounted size: 730 x 640 mm. Good condition. Visible text show through. A wonderful life size botanical print from Basilius Besler's epic work; the 'Hortus Eystettensis'. Besler was a Nuremberg apothecary, commissioned in 1600 by Konrad, the Bishop Prince of Eichstatt, to engrave the contents of his extensive gardens. The resulting 374 plates (illustrating more than a thousand flowers), were arranged according to the yearly seasons. When the book was first published in 1613, it was the largest book ever printed, and the scarce, coloured versions of the prints sold for ten times the price of those sold in black and white. Besler worked on the drawings for almost sixteen years, supervising a team of at least six engravers. The impressive size and scope of these elaborately produced copper engravings certainly make the Hortus Eystettensis one of the most ambitious and stunning botanical publications in the entire history of botanical illustration.

        DELLE NAVIGATIONI ET VIAGGI RACCOLTE DA M. GIO. BATTISTA RAMUSIO, IN TRE VOLUMI DIVISE

      Venice: Appresso i Giunti, 1613. Three volumes. Ten folding or double-page maps and plans (three engraved, seven woodcut), woodcut maps and illustrations within the text. Folio. 20th-century vellum, spine with raised bands, red and brown morocco labels. Two text leaves in third volume (a4 and a5) supplied from slightly shorter copy. Minor worming in upper gutter margin of first volume affecting approximately twenty leaves, without loss of text. Third volume with paper restoration in the lower margin affecting approximately forty leaves (without loss of text). Minor paper loss at lower margin of approximately twenty leaves in third volume (not affecting text). Bottom edges of first and second volumes with early manuscript titling. Overall very good. As is often the case with sets of Ramusio, the present set is a mix of issues: the sixth edition of the first volume, the third edition of the second volume and the rare first edition of the third volume. Ramusio's effort is the first general compilation of narratives of the European exploration of the rest of the world. From John Locke to Henry Harrisse, scholars and bibliographers have praised Ramusio for his choice of material, his care and accuracy in presenting it, and his assiduous sorting of the evidence of the new discoveries. The first editions or first available editions of many of the most important voyages are contained herein, and the set is basic to any collection of voyages. The first volume is devoted to Africa and the East, especially the narratives of early Portuguese exploration, covering De Gama, Alvarez, Barros, and Pigafetta. The maps in the first volume are some of the first engraved maps to appear in any travel book. The second volume describes the journeys of Marco Polo, Varthema's eastern travels, and Persian voyages. Present here is the first edition of the second volume to include an account of Sebastian Cabot. The third volume is entirely devoted to America, and includes accounts of Peter Martyr, Oviedo (whose book XX occupies almost half the volume), Cortès, Cabeça de Vaca, Guzman, Ulloa, Coronado, Fray Marcos di Niza, Xerez, Verrazano, and Cartier. The final section on New France is particularly notable, being an early general publication of Cartier's Canadian experiences. Ramusio's maps are particularly important. The western hemisphere map in the third volume, the product of a collaboration between Ramusio and Oviedo, is the most complete one of its time, even showing Japan as more than one island. The Newfoundland and Hochelaga maps, resulting from Cartier's explorations, are the best early Canadian maps, with the latter being the first printed plan of a town in North America. ADAMS R-139.

        Delle Navigationi et Viaggi raccolte da M. Gio. Battista Ramusio, in tre volumi divise

      appresso i Giunti, Venice 1613 - (12 1/2 x 8 1/4 inches). 10 folding or double-page maps and plans (3 engraved, 7 woodcut), woodcut maps and illustrations within the text. Two text leaves in vol. 3 (a4 and a5) supplied from slightly shorter copy. Minor worming in upper gutter margin of volume one affecting approx. 20 leaves (without loss of text), volume three with paper restoration in the lower margin affecting appro. 40 leaves (without loss of text), minor paper loss at lower margin of approx. 20 leaves in vol. 3 (not affecting text). Bottom edges of vols. 1 and 2 with early manuscript titling. Twentieth century vellum, spine with raised bands, red and brown morocco lettering pieces A fine set of this highly important compilation of world voyages: a cornerstone of any collection of travel books and early Americana. As is often the case with sets of Ramusio, the present set is a mix of issues: the sixth edition of the first volume, the third edition of the second volume and the rare first edition of the third volume. Ramusio's effort is the first general compilation of narratives of the European exploration of the rest of the world. From John Locke to Henry Harrisse, scholars and bibliographers have praised Ramusio for his choice of material, his care and accuracy in presenting it, and his assiduous sorting of the evidence of the new discoveries.

        Fantastica visione di Parri da Pozzolatico, moderno [poderaio] in Pandigiullari.

      [Ottaviano Guidoboni], 1613. In-4° (cm. 20), legatura del XX secolo in p. pelle rossa con piatto anteriore inquadrato da cornici in oro e a secco, titolo in oro al dorso, dentelles, risguardi in carta decorata; pp. [8] in ottimo stato con vignetta al frontespizio; carte bianche in fine aggiunte dal legatore G. Bramante di Novara; segni e correzioni antiche. Edizione originale, che differisce dalla contraffazione di Salani del 1866 per via di alcuni errori di stampa, qui tra l'altro anticamente corretti con inchiostro (cfr. Razzolini-Bacchi della Lega 18). «Rarissimo. Per isbaglio di stampa manca nel frontispizio la voce Poderaio» [Gamba 30] che in questo es. è anticamente manoscritta. Il fiorentino Allegri (1560-1629), oltre a proporre una lettera per Dante, si fingeva contadino per cantare il suo amore istintivo e sensuale per una donna. Per il nome dello stampatore cfr. BL Italian 17th cent., I, 22; per l'autore Melzi I, 22. Secondo alcuni il testo faceva coppia con Lettere di Ser Poi Pedante nella Corte de' Donati [A. Bertoloni, Nuova serie de' testi di lingua italiana, 33]. Ottimo esemplare.
