        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)

        Lilium Persicum [Persian fritillary and bulb]; Iris tuberosa [Snake's-head iris]; Chamæiris angustis foliis minor [Beardlesspurple iris]

      Eichstatt: 1613, 1st edition. Hand-coloured engraving. In excellent condition, with the exception of a printer's crease in upper left corner. 21 1/8 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.

        Acorus cum suo iulo.Scordium. Chamaedrys [published for "Hortus Eystettensis"]

      1613 or 1713-1750. Plate mark 48,5 x 40 cm. The whole sheet 55,5 x 43 cm. Hand coloured engraving. Fine condition.. A plate published for "Hortus Eystettensis" (The Garden of Eichstatt), one of the finest flower books ever published. It stands out by its size and alluring beauty. Besler was commisioned by the archbishop Johann Conrad of Gremmingen to produce a flower book on the bishops flower garden. The work was published in three main editions 1613, 1640 and 1713 -1750. The first edition was published in both a de luxe issue on water marked paper with no text at the versos and a trade issue without water mark, and text at the versos. The de luxe issue was meant to be coloured and the trade issue was meant to stay in black and white. The present plate has text at the verso and no water mark. In other words the trade issue, which means that the colouring probably is of a later date. In fact it is hard to know if the present plate was published for the 1613 trade issue or the 1713 - 1750 edition, which also has text at the versos

In all 150 maps all fully, clearly and beautifully coloured in contemporary hand, one of which is full-page and 149 double-page. Woodcut vignettes and woodcut illustr. in text. Text brownspotted and evenly browned, small professional repairs to some leaves. A folding crease down the middle of the world map and a small neatly repaired tear, but no loss. Map of Europe w. some folding tears, resulting in minor loss, professionally repaired. Nova Europae w. some creases and small repaired loss to upper and lower frame. Small creases to "America and India Nova"-map. Map of Great Britain w. folding crease through the middle of Ireland as well as loss of map, about 5,5 cm. x 2 cm. in the middle of Ireland. Map of Alsace w. tear to margin of page, not affecting map. Map of Tuscany w. folding crease down the middle, no loss, likewise w. map of Croatia. Map of Asia Nova w. repaired lacks of small pieces of frame, likewise map of Palestine, though both quite minorly. Folding-crease down middle of map of Persia, no loss. Very minor cracks to map of Japan. Small repaired loss to frame of map of Spain. No half-title to Belgium (mentioned in Koemann).. Title-page states "Editio Quarta" (i.e. fourth Latin edition), but this is a variant of the 1613 French edition with the Latin title-page but with text in French. The contents are the same as Koemann 23A, except for the fact that this has the French t-p. Koemann 23B with the Latin t-p. and French text is missing things present in this one. The maps are the same as those of the 1613 Latin edition (Koemann 22). Later in the 17th century numerous editions appeared in Latin, French, Dutch and German, in all at least 40 editions. Phillips only has the Latin 1613-edition (3416) and that copy only has 147 maps and thus lacks three and "The four half titles of Galliae, Belgii Inferioris, Germaniae and Italiae, Sclavoniae et Graecio, found in the editions of 1607 and 1619 are wanting." (Philips 3416). Rare variant edition with all the 150 maps, in which the double-portrait of Hondius and Mercator appears for one of the first times (it appears for the first time in 1613, when both a Latin and a French edition were published), and which is one of the first editions to contain as many as 150 maps (only in 1613 did the atlas contain 150 maps). The seminal Mercator-atlas with all maps present is becoming increasingly difficult to find. Mercator is one of the two greatest figures in the history of cartography, and it is he and Ortelius, who introduce modern cosmography and our way of looking at the world geographically. It is in this work, the term "atlas" is used for the first time, thus in a way this is the world's first atlas. No other man has done as much for map making as Mercator, he turns the art form into an exact science, and he is the first to free us from Ptolemy's cosmogony, which, though very unscientific and full of errors, was dominating up to the point of Mercator. Mercator is the first to name North America and South America and is the inventor of "Mercator's projection", which is still of the utmost importance to map making. "Owing perhaps to the innate conservatism of seamen, Mercator's principles were not immediately accepted, but by the end of the seventeenth century they were in universal use. It is only in very recent times, chiefly owing to the requirements of the aeroplane, that they have been partially abandoned." (PMM 100). Mercator died in 1594, and the first edition of the atlas was issued by his son the following year; the atlas was quite insufficient, though, and when his son died in 1599, the family sold the plates to Hondius, who added maps himself, published them together with Mercator's under his title and thereby got to create a work as close as possible to the one Mercator had intended, but never got to carry out. Hondius made the Mercator atlas the success it deserved to be. The text for the work was written for him by Peter Montanus. Variant of Koemann: Me 23A and 23B, [Shirley: p. 682 (T-MER -2g)], (Phillips: 3416 )
