        Hyacinthus Serotinus maximus [Late wild hyacinth]; Viola flammea maior violaceo colore mixta [Wild purple pansy]; Viola flammea maior pallido colore mixta [Wild yellow pansy]

      Eichstatt: 1613, 1st edition. Hand-coloured engraving. In good condition apart from mild foxing mostly in the margins and a tear in the bottome margin. 21 x 17 1/2 inches. 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 from the plants in the garden of Bishop Johann Conrad von Gemmingen, his patron. Depicted in this florilegium were flowers, herbs, vegetables and "exotic" plants such as tobacco and peppers. Besler and his brothers were familiar with real and alleged medicinal properties of the different plants. Besler lived 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.

        A Short Treatise of Magneticall Bodies and Motions

      London,: Nicholas Okes, 1613.. Small quarto, engraved title-page by Renold Elstrak, with full-page portrait of the author in contemporary handcolouring, 21 engravings in the text (one with two small maps showing New England, Virginia, and Terra Australis); the engraving on leaf T1 with its movable quadrant present; colophon device on last leaf; a few leaves cut close without loss, good margins on the fore-edges with the exception of the title-page which is just touched at the outer edge; faint ownership inscription of Susanna Smalwel (1742?) on initial blank; a very good copy in a period-style calf binding by Aquarius. First edition, first issue (before the printing of errata on the final leaf) of the most important Renaissance treatise on magnetism after the works of Peregrinus and Gilbert and an early sequel to William Gilbert's classic De magnete of 1600. Gilbert had identified the magnetic nature of the Earth, thus identifying a new field for research and experiment which would involve direction-finding, polarity, longitude, and many other subjects of great interest to the mariner. A considerable literature would follow, with Ridley's book an early and pioneering example.The engravings in Ridley's book include a fine portrait of the author, a rare example of an engraving with a moving part or "volvelle", and most interestingly a map of Terra Australis. Any seventeenth-century maps of a Southern Continent are of course of immediate interest; this example, approximately on the Mercator/FinÈ pattern, seems to have escaped the notice of writers on the subject, and it appears to be held in Australian libraries only in microfilm or electronic formats. Ridley's chapter "Of the variation of the Compasse from the true Meridian" is in fact illustrated with two maps (p. 97), one from the perspective of each pole; the southern hemisphere is marked with Africa, Brazil and Terra Australis, the northern with China, Russia and Virginia.Adams & Waters, 2976; Crone, 127; Honeyman Collection, 2649; Johnson, 'Astronomical Thought in Renaissance England', pp. 235-8; Mottelay, 97; STC, 21045; Taylor, 'Mathematical Practitioners', 126; Wheeler Gift, 86.

        America sive India Nova [America or New Indies]

      Amsterdam: Hondius, [1613]. Copper-engraved map, with full original colour, in very good condition apart from manuscript placenames and underlinings. 17 1/4 x 20 7/8 inches. A superb example of one of the most celebrated maps of the Americas, the only printed map by Gerard Mercator's grandson Michael. This copy with lovely full contemporary colour. Made by Gerard's grandson Michael to complete the atlas (Atlantis Pars Altera) begun by Gerard in 1584, this map is noted for its outstanding design and beauty, particularly its symmetrical configuration of circular insets and Mannerist flow of vines, flowers and leaves surrounding the circular map. Largely based on Rumold Mercator's world map of 1587, this map aptly reflects 16th-century knowledge, theories and suppositions regarding the New World. Naturally, most of this new knowledge was coastal, and configurations of any large areas were greatly hampered by the lack of a sound means of determining longitude. Nevertheless, the collective accomplishment of explorers and mapmakers represented in this map is astounding, showing in a generally correct way the vast extent of the New World. "A few of the most famous theories are still present: a large inland lake in Canada, two of the four islands of the North Pole, a bulge to the west coast of South America and the large southern continent" (Burden).

      London: Printed by John Beale, for W. Welby, 1613.. [16],71pp. Small quarto. Modern crushed red morocco by Riviere, spine lettered in gilt, raised bands, a.e.g., gilt inner dentelles. Titlepage margins restored, affecting a few letters of text. Light, even tanning. A handsome copy. The Frank C. Deering copy, with his gilt morocco bookplate on the front pastedown, of the rare first edition of the most extensive narrative of the British attempt to establish a colony in South America. Harcourt made his voyage to Guiana in 1609 and stayed less than a year. While there he made contact with a local chief, set about searching for gold, and established a colony at the mouth of the River Wiapoco. When he returned to England, Harcourt began promoting his newly acquired plantation in Guiana, and the text includes discussions of the growing of sugar, cotton, tobacco, and indigo. Harcourt presents strong arguments for the future of the British toehold on the Spanish Main, and contends that Guiana's riches rival those of New Spain and Peru. This first edition contains the text of the Patent of Guiana granted to Harcourt, which is not printed in the second edition of 1626. "The tract did much to hasten the idea of English colonization in America..." - Streeter. "Very rare" - Sabin. Only the former Boies Penrose copy has appeared for sale in recent times.

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

      Eichstatt.. First published 1613. Ca. 1650.. 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. .

        Clematis Daphnoides major

      Eichstatt: , 1613. Pl. 129 Size: 540 × 450 mm. Mounted size: 730 x 640 mm. Copperplate engraving with hand colour. Very good condition, text on reverse. A wonderful 'life size' botanical print of Honeysuckle, Periwinkle and Woodbine 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.

        Jasminum Indicum flore rubro & variegato. Gentionella Autumnalis foliis Centaury minoris flore coeruleo Gentionella multiflora Autumnalise coeruleo purpurascens

      Eichstatt.. First published 1613. Ca. 1650.. Engraving, handcolored, 19 x 15 1/2 inches (48 x 39cm) on sheet 20 3/4 x 16 3/4 inches. Dampstaining entering the image at lower left, and in upper margin; tiny hole at centre right of plate not affecting the image, faint 'B' in lower margin, light horizontal crease, light offsetting from text page (scarcely noticeable). Thick fabric-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.

From the section of autumn plants, this plate shows the Variegated pink four o'clock (from the Nyctaginaceae family) at the centre with the Fringed Gentianella at left and the Bavarian Gentianella at right. The initials HL appear on the bulbous root of the central plant, attributing the painting to Hieronymus Lederer of Nuremburg. .

        Squammata seu dentaria maior [White toothwort]; Denscanis flore albo [White dogtooth violet]; Denscanis flore rubro [Lavender dogtooth violet]; Pulmonaria maculosa [Lungwort]; Primula Veris sylvestris flore pallido [Common primrose]

      Eichstatt: 1613, 1st edition. Hand-coloured engraving. 20 7/8 x 17 inches. 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.

        Tulipa Lutea Maculis Rubens

      Hortus Eystettensis., 1613, First edition.. Plate 71. Copper engraving. 17th century colour. Excellent condition. Large margins. Text on reverse. Mounted size: 61 x 71 cm. Size: 41 x 48 cm. (16 x 19 inches). One of an extremely rare collection of botanicals from Basilius Besler's Hortus Eystettensis. Besler was a Nuremburg apothecary in charge of the elaborate garden of the Bishop Prince of Eisenstatt. The plates, illustrating more than a thousand flowers were arranged according to the seasons. When the book was published in 1613, it was the largest book ever printed, and the coloured versions of the prints sold for ten times the price of those sold in black and white. The seventeenth century colouring of our prints have a very interesting pedigree. They have been examined at length by Nicolas Barker, who concluded, 'I believe these plates to come from a copy coloured according the original exemplar (that is, before the use of written instructions), probably before the middle of the 17th century.' A fuller copy of Nicolas Barker's report is available upon request.

Michaelis in Eremo Coenobiarcha, cum mnss. Regiis contulit, emendavit, interpretatus est, una cum doctissimis Graecorum Nicetae Serrony, Pselli, Nonij, & Eliae Cretensis commentariis. Aucta est haec editio aliquammultis eiusdem Gregorij Epistolis nunquam antea editis, ex interpretatione Fed. Morelli Professoris & Interpretis Regij. Pp. [68]+916+[4](index), parallel text in greek and latin, the title page printed in red & black, with large printer's device initialled F.M. [Federic Morel], decorative headpieces and several initials; f'cap. folio; a handsome contemporary binding of stamped leather over oak boards, executed in 1613 for Godefredus' [Godfried] Gilkens [see footnote] with his name stamped in blind beneath the date on the upper board, the spine with five raised bands, boards with chased brass centrepiece and four cornerpieces, an elaborate blind decorative outer border surrounding two inner borders (the first incorporating numerous small portrait beads featuring the heads of soldiers, emperors, kings and others, the second geometric), around a central polished panel featuring floral corner ornaments, with the upper portion of the two original brass clasps at fore-edge of upper board, the boards slightly worn (heavier at edges), the spine rubbed and dried, with early repairs at extremities (including reinforcement to the upper joint), the lower joint cracking and slightly chipped, edges of boards lightly worn; hinges cracked (with early paper repairs at foot), bookplate of W. A. Harding of Madingley [see footnote] above a later owner's bookplate on the upper pastedown, small printed catalogue slip on verso of upper free endpaper, early inked annotations (one dated 1613 - presumably in Godfrey Gilkens' hand?) to title page, a few small wormholes (mainly to margins, occasionally very slightly affecting letterpress), several light marginal water stains (a couple extending into text), a few leaves slightly browned, a little light foxing and occasional soiling; Claudium Morellium, Lutetiae Parisiorum [Paris], 1609. Brunet, 504 (describing this edition as preferable to the second [expanded] edition of 1630). *Volume One only; the second volume being published separately in 1611. The son of the Bishop of Nazianzus in Cappodocia, St. Gregory (c. 329-389) is one of the four great fathers of the Eastern Church. This first collected edition of his works to be printed in France uses the translation of the Benedictine Abbot Jaques de Billi de Prunay (1535-1581), a renowned French scholar, theologian, jurist, and linguist. It contains several previously unpublished letters, translated by Federic Morel (1558-1630), a member of the famous French family of printers, and one of the greatest greek scholars of his time. The printer, Claude Morel (1574-1626), younger brother of Federic, published several works of the Church fathers, and was a member of the 'Societas librariorum & typographorum', a group formed specifically to publish works from the greek. Godfrey Gilkens, the original owner of this book, seems to have been a prominent citizen of Roermond, an historically important town in the Netherlands. Gilkens' name appears in the official records of the Souverin Council of the Court of Gete, Roermond, with the annotations 'graduated council 1584-1622' and 'Chancellor' 1622-25. From 1180-1543, Roermond belonged to the Duchy of Guelders. In 1213 the town was destroyed by the Holy Roman Emperor, Otto IV, but by 1232 the city had been rebuilt, and was granted its own seal, mint, and court. In 1613, when the present volume was bound for Godfrey Gilkens, Roermond became notorious for the burning of 64 presumed witches, following the biggest witch trial ever held in the Netherlands. The more recent owner, W. A. Harding was the son of Colonel T. Walter Harding, who purchased Madingley Hall [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Tratado de la Artilleria y uso della Platicado por el Capotan Diego Ufano en las Guerras de Flandes.

      en Casa de Ivan Momarte 1613 Cm. 26, pp. (20) 423 + (8) di indice ed errata, (2) bianche. Frontespizio con titolo entro sontuosa bordura architettonica incisa su rame con stemma nobiliare del dedicatario, l'Arciduca Alberto d'Austria, sorretto da leoni rampanti ed angeli; due cannoni ed un'aquila che sorregge negli artigli un fascio di frecce sormontano la cornice. Una pianta militare incisa su rame sormonta la dedicatoria e 54 tavole incise su rame fuori testo (di cui 5 ripiegate). Legatura moderna, firmata da Aldo Perticaroli di Roma, in piena pelle marrone con filetti e bordure in oro perimetrali ai piatti. Dorso a nervi con titolo in oro su tassello rosso e decori in oro entro scomparti. Entro custodia in cart. rigido marmorizzato. Duplice ex-libris. Come in altri esemplari confrontati, alcune tavole presentano un'uniforme brunitura. Esemplare peraltro assai bello e ben conservato. Prima edizione di questa rimarchevole opera secentesca di artiglieria terrestre e marittima in cui l'autore discorre anche di varie questioni d'ingegneria quali il recupero dei navigli affondati, i fuochi pirotecnici (assai rilevante la sezione consacrata alla pirotecnia), la costruzione di passerelle e ponti, ecc. Nel trattato l?autore avrebbe comunicato, a giudizio di alcuni, l?idea di produrre armi a tiro ripetuto, precorritrici delle moderne mitragliatrici (in realtà si tratta di ipotesi di tiro continuato mediante giustapposizione di file di fucilieri). Interessanti e molto ampie sono le parti del trattato dedicate alle attività di logistica e alle mansioni del genio e assai importanti i paragrafi attinenti al recupero dei navigli dispersi per affondamento. Il trattato, uno dei più dotti e articolati in materia tra quanti ne furono impressi nel XVII secolo, conobbe traduzioni in svariate lingue europee, tra cui anche il tedesco ed il polacco. L'Ufano, nato a Yepes in data imprecisata, morto nel 1613, esercitò la professione di ingegnere militare al servizio dell'esercito spagnolo nelle Fiandre, agli ordini del generale Luis Velasco. La sua opera più siginificativa rimane la presente, in cui confluiscono apporti di numerosi trattatisti militari (soprattutto Luis Collado de Lebrija). Cockle, 684, note: "This is a very famous work, holding a prominent place in the history of artillery". Graesse, VII, 222. Brunet, V, 1000. Palau, 342943. Fournier, p. 541, col. II: ?Ouvrage rare e recherché?. Almirante, 858. Peeters-Fontainas, 1328. Riling, 78.

        Ranunculus nemorosu flore pleno [Double-flowered wood anemone]; Ranunculus flore luteo [Yellow wood anemone]; Nasturium aquaticum flore pleno [Double-flowered bitter cress]; Nasturtium aquaticum simplici flore [Bitter cress]

      Eichstatt: 1613, 1st edition. Hand-coloured engraving. 21 x 17 1/2 inches. 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.

Ownership inscription of T(homas) Grantham, schoolmaster, rector of Waddington, Oxfordshire until 1636; some darkening to covers and minor repair to headcap and joint; normal toning to text; generally very good Scarce second edition, in a luxurious English morocco binding, of the first translation of Montaigne into English by the celebrated Italian linguist and lexicographer John Florio (1533-1625), arguably the most influential translator of the Elizabethan era. Florio's translation of the Essays was a watershed event in the evolution of the English language. In it, he coined a number of new English words, embellishing Montaigne's apothegms with the parallelisms and proverbs of the Italian rhetorical tradition, and ultimately offering the Essays to Anglophone readers in a style as florid and ornate as the original French was simple and unadorned. "Florio's translation of Montaigne is a great work. Translation as an art has rarely, perhaps never, reached such a high level as in the Elizabethan age, and among the great Tudor translations Florio's work stands very high indeed. . . . the translation was probably one of the most influential books ever published in this country" (Yates).Florio first printed his translation in 1603, in a three-volume set that contained a total of six dedications to various female nobles. Perhaps owing to a recent satire by John Donne, Florio's present second edition limits itself to a single dedication to Queen Anne. The present copy is finely bound in contemporary English red morocco; its title-page bears an early ownership inscription dated 1638.*Yates, John Florio: The Life of an Italian in Shakespeare's England (Cambridge 1934).

The first edition of this account by Antony Sherley of his travels in Persia, reprinted in 1625 in PURCHAS HIS PILGRIMES. Leaving Venice in 1599 with his brother, Robert Sherley, and John Manwaring, Antony Sherley travelled to Persia "with the intention of promoting Persian trade with England. Travelling by way of Cephalonia (in Greece), Crete, and Cyprus, he reached Aleppo in August 1599, then proceeded down the Euphrates to Baghdad and across the mountains to Esfahan. From there, in 1608, Robert Sherley returned to Europe as an envoy of the Shah. Anthony Sherley entered the service of Shah Abbas...and arrived at the Caspian Sea sometime in 1600" - Howgego. Boies Penrose has chronicled the story of these extraordinary Elizabethan brothers in his book, THE SHERLIAN ODYSSEY. Their narratives provided England with its first clear account of the Persian Empire. COX I, p.247. STC 22424. OCLC 5841190. HOWGEGO S95.

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.

        The Works of Mr. John Cleveland, Containing his Poems, Orations, Epistles, collected into One Volume, With the Life of the Author

      1613-1658 Octavo, 6.5 x 4 inches. First edition. A8, a4, B-Z8, Aa-Ll8. This edition has the "Vera Effigies" engraving of Cleaveland. This copy is in good condition internally, bound in contemmporary calf rebacked It is bound in full contemporary calf, unrepaired and intact. As a poet Cleveland enjoyed great fame in his lifetime but nowadays his work is hardly known. Opinions differ as to the quality of his poetry, some believing it due for revival and others finding it too much of its own time to bear close scrutiny and representation in ours. His case bears some resemblance to that of his contemporary Abraham Cowley. Cleveland was the son of a Yorkshire clergyman whomoved to the living of Hinckley, Leicestershire, in 1621. He was educated at Christ's College, Cambridge, and was made a fellow of St John's in 1634. He was a contemporary of Milton at Christ's College, and contributed a poem to the volume of elegies on the death of Edward King. He opposed the election of Cromwell as MP for Cambridge in 1640 and was, like Cowley and Crashaw, ejected from his fellowship in 1645; but like them he had already (1643) left Cambridge. After two years at Oxford he joined the Royalist garrison at Newark and served as judge-advocate until the surrender of the town in 1646. Now destitute, Cleveland made his way to London, existing on the kindness of friends, and sometimes contributing to Royalist journals. He never compromised his loyalties, not even when arrested and imprisoned (1655-56) on the vague charge of being a dissident Royalist. Indeed, in a personal appeal to Cromwell, he proclaimed his service to his king as a reason for his vindication. His appeal succeeded, and upon his release Cleveland returned to London where he spent his last two years at Gray's Inn. Cleveland's first published work appeared in The Character of London-Diurnall; with Severall Select Poems (1644). The same title appeared in 1647, when the volume was entirely CLeveland's. Editions of his work followed steadily, an enlarged one of 1651 continuing to be issued and read for ten years or more. He was the author of amatory verse, of 'character' that depicted a type of contemporary man in order to reflect his times, and, perhaps most notably, of satires, particularly on Presbyterians. The most admired are 'The Rebel Scot' and 'The King's Disguise.'" (Stapleton's The Cambridge Guide to English Literature)
