        Caryophyllus Maior Indic, Flroe Multiplici Aureo. Ocimum Citzatum Seulitriodore. Ocimum Aenisiodore.

      Eichstatt: c.1613 - Good condition. Visible show through. Copperplate engraving. Later hand-colour. Plate mark size: 485 × 400 mm. Mounted size: 730 x 640 mm. 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.

        L'Adamo, sacra rapresentatione

      Milan: Geronimo Bordoni, 1613. 4to (221 x 165 mm). Engraved title, portrait, one engraved head-piece, one full-page and 38 half-page engravings by Cesare Bassano after Carlo Antonio Procaccini. 17th-century mottled calf, gilt spine. Short repaired tear in title and portrait, portrait slightly short, generally a very attractive copy in a near-contemporary binding. Provenance: purchased from E.P. Goldschmidt, 1962. FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE, containing the portrait found only in some copies. Italian literary scholars have speculated that Andreini's play influenced Milton during his trip to Italy, and is therefore a primary source for Paradise Lost. "The action is grandiose. With the Biblical story which forms the groundwork of the picture are interwoven many extravagances and that spectacular display which so pleased the public" (Joseph Spencer Kennard, The Italian Theatre). The performance included fantastical sets, which are captured in Bassano's engravings after the designs of Carlo Antonio Procaccini. Vinciana called this 5-act play "the most significant work of theatre in the seventeenth century." The son of Francesco and Isabella Andreini, the most famous actors of their age, Andreini also acted, using the name Leylio in his comedic performances in Paris. BL 17th-Century Italian I, p. 32; Brunet I:269; Cicognara 1423; Sander 6381; Vinciana 4125. From the Collection of Arthur & Charlotte Vershbow.

      Johann Theodor (Dietrich) de Bry, Frankfurt am Main 1613 - Small Folio. 115, folded map, 2nd title page, xxii plates. Rebound in brown leather with raised bands on spine, housed in burgundy clamshell box with gilt decorative ruling and lettering on black leather label of cover. Full page copperplate engraving framing printed title page lettering with MDXCV in handwriting underneath and "Cum privilegio S.C. Maiestatis" printed at foot of the title page proper. Engraving of Christopher Columbus as headpiece on page three (6 x 5"). Decorative woodcut initials, historiated head and endpieces. Double page of engraved map "Hispaniae Novae Sive Magnae, Recens Et Vera Descriptio 1595" (Burden 79) bound in between pages four and five. 2nd title page with historiated headpiece and vignette printed by Erasmus Kempffer, Frankfurt am Mayn, 1613, followed by twenty two copperplate engravings (6 1/4 x 7 3/4") with headlines, decorative initials and descriptive text.The stories describing encounters with indigenous peoples are illustrated on the XXII plates at rear, including a revolt of the population of the island S. Dominicae against the Spanish in 1512, the segregation of African slaves on the island Hispaniola, the first permanent European settlement in the Americas, to an area called Guinea, punishment of the slaves for lack of productivity in the mines, skirmishes with French pirates in 1543, pillaging of the city of Chioera on Cuba by the French in 1556, commerce with indigenous people, American Indians called Caribes on the warpath against the Spanish, detailing their warfare practices and beliefs, handling of a famine by the Spaniard Didacus Gottierez in 1540, Ferdinandus Sotto's confrontation with native Americans in Florida, Benzonis encounters in Nicaragua and others.In this history of the New World "Americae pars quinta" by Girolamo Benzoni "De Bry relied on the earlier German translation by Nicolaus Höniger (Geneva 1582-83), with elaboration by Urbain Chauveton. Dedicated to Landgrave Maurice of Hesse-Kassel." (Michiel van Groesen, The Representation of the Overseas World in the De Bry Collection of Voyages (1590-1634), page 397).When comparing our 2nd edition (1613) with digital copies of the 1st edition (1595) at the Bayrische Staatsbibliothek (BSB) and the 2nd edition (1613) at Brown University we have noticed following differences: our 2nd edition begins with title page and "Vorrede" following the 1595 first edition at BSB. Thereafter our copy is identical to the 1613 edition at Brown University. The BSB copy has a 2nd identical 1595 title page inserted after page 115, preceding the XXII engravings, whereas our copy features the 1613 title page printed by Erasmus Kempffer with Johann Dietherich de Bry credited as publisher. The undated illustrated title pages of the 1595 and 1613 editions can be distinguished by variant line breaks, i.e. the word Indianer is separated and printed "In-" at the end of line six and "dianer: wie" starting line 7 in the 1595 edition. In the 1613 edition "dianer: wie" is moved to the end of the sixth line that way bringing together the word Indianer. In addition, in our copy the layout compared to the BSB copy shows variant line breaks throughout as well as differnet designs for initials, head and endpieces following the "Vorrede" ending on page 6. The copy at the Brown University Library ("This work has been identified as the sole issue of the second edition of part five of the German edition of the Great voyages by Church") is identical to our copy, including misnumbered pages, except for the placement of the map and the first title page plus "Vorrede" as described above.Text in German. Map is missing app. one to 1 to 1.5" at left, right and bottom border, missing scales and lettering at edges, scale, lettering and lower part of the illustrations at bottom.

        L'Adamo, sacra rapresentatione

      Milan: Geronimo Bordoni, 1613. From the Collection of Arthur & Charlotte Vershbow. 4to (221 x 165 mm). Engraved title, portrait, one engraved head-piece, one full-page and 38 half-page engravings by Cesare Bassano after Carlo Antonio Procaccini. 17th-century mottled calf, gilt spine. Short repaired tear in title and portrait, portrait slightly short, generally a very attractive copy in a near-contemporary binding. Provenance: purchased from E.P. Goldschmidt, 1962. FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE, containing the portrait found only in some copies. Italian literary scholars have speculated that Andreini's play influenced Milton during his trip to Italy, and is therefore a primary source for Paradise Lost. "The action is grandiose. With the Biblical story which forms the groundwork of the picture are interwoven many extravagances and that spectacular display which so pleased the public" (Joseph Spencer Kennard, The Italian Theatre). The performance included fantastical sets, which are captured in Bassano's engravings after the designs of Carlo Antonio Procaccini. Vinciana called this 5-act play "the most significant work of theatre in the seventeenth century." The son of Francesco and Isabella Andreini, the most famous actors of their age, Andreini also acted, using the name Leylio in his comedic performances in Paris. BL 17th-Century Italian I, p. 32; Brunet I:269; Cicognara 1423; Sander 6381; Vinciana 4125.

Fint samtida lätt nött pergamentbd med prydligt handskriven ryggtitel. Blåstänkta snitt. Den fina inlagan med några få småfläckar och i synnerhet planscherna med svag fuktrand överst. Titelbladet till del I uppfodrat med liten bildförlust och lagad reva i s. (11-12). Titelbladet till del II lite beskuret in i motivet nedtill med förlust av delar av årtalet. Liten lagning nedtill på titelbladet till del V. Del V saknar ett inledande förord på sex blad. VD17 39:119242D, VD17 23:277315A, VD17 39:119621E respektive VD17 23:277360V för del I-II respektive V-VI. Katalog der Ornamentstich-Sammlung der staatlichen Kunstbibliothek Berlin 1773. Del III-IV är inte identisk med de två respektive fyra varianter som listas i VD17. Del III har årtalet 1618 på titelbladet men 1664 i impressum på sista sidan och del VI har årtalet 1636 på titelbladet och 1655 i impressum på sista sidan. Titelbladet till del IV är tryckt och utan graverat ramverk. Första upplagan av "Theatri machinarum" trycktes mellan 1607-14, denna volym består, som ofta, av delar ur olika upplagor. Zeisings "Theatri machinarum" ingår i en tradition av handböcker i teknik och mekanik som kan leda sitt urspung till Agricola och Vitruvius. I arbetet presenteras ett sammandrag av renässansens kunnande och innovationer inom teknikens område. Om författarens själv är lite känt, förutom att han var verksam som kopparstickare i Leipzig och författare till denna handbok som utkom i en rad upplagor (även om planscherna ofta är från samma plåtar). Man har pekat på tydliga influenser från föregångare på området som Besson, Ramelli och Zonca, men Zeising har bearbetat och utvidgat uppgifterna som hämtats från dessa författare. Till skillnad från tidigare handböcker är Zeisings mindre till formatet och åsikten har framförts att Zeising i arbetet med den många planscherna tycks ha haft fokus på att tjäna pengar på sitt arbete, till skillnad från sina föregångare som mer var intresserade av de tekniska lösningarna i sig.

        Antora (Monk's Hood)

      Eichstatt: Hortus Eystettensis 1613 - Sheet Dimension: 22.5 x 17.5 in. Frame Dimension: 29.5 x 25 in. Hand-colored copperplate engraving. Basil Besler’s great botanical work is a landmark of botanical documentation and pre-Linnaean classification, as well as one of the most splendidly stylized and aesthetically powerful botanical works ever produced. Besler was an apothecary and botanist who managed the gardens of Bishop Johann Conrad in Eichstatt, Germany. The Bishop’s remarkable garden was one of the most extensive in Europe, containing a huge variety of European shrubs and flowering plants, as well as exotic specimens from Asia and the Americas. Besler used this encyclopedic resource as the basis for the Hortus Eystettensis, in which he studied and depicted over a thousand flowers, representing 667 species in all. With the Bishop’s patronage, he worked both as artist and publisher, directing a team of ten artists and engravers in creating 367 plates over 16 years.
