MERCATOR Gérard - HONDIUS.
1613. Carte géographique, feuille de 543 x 451 mm., gravure de 448 x 373 mm., carte gravée issue de l'édition française de l'atlas publié par HONDIUS entre 1613 et 1616 (Koeman 1:112), trace de pli central, 2 taches claires sur la carte, très bel exemplaire. L’Atlas de Gérard MERCATOR (1512-1594)Dans sa Chronologia publiée en 1569, Mercator révèle son projet d’écrire un ouvrage cosmologique en cinq parties sur la création du monde et son histoire. La troisième partie consacrée à la géographie devait comprendre une géographie ancienne qui ne fut jamais réalisée, une réédition de la Geographia de Ptolémé (publiée en 1578 et 1584) et une géographie moderne que constituera l’Atlas. La première édition de l’Atlas paraîtra en 1585 avec les cartes de France, de Suisse, des Pays-Bas espagnols et de l’Allemagne. Italiae, Sclavoniae et Graeciae tabule geographice furent ajoutées pour la deuxième édition de 1589.Après la mort de Mercator, en 1594, l’Atlas a continué à paraître par les soins de son fils Rumold et la collaboration des trois petits-fils de Mercator. La nouvelle édition de 1595 comportera les cartes de l’Orbis terrae et d’Europa par Rumold, Africa et Asia par Gérard junior et America par Michel. En 1604, la famille Mercator vendra les plaques de cuivre de l’Atlas au cartographe et éditeur Jodocus Hondius (1563-1612) qui consacra le reste de sa vie professionnelle à cette entreprise. Il ajoutera trente-six cartes à sa nouvelle édition de 1606. Après sa mort, son fils Jodocus junior continuera à assurer l’édition de l’Atlas, il s’associera avec Johannes Janssonius.

BESLER, Basilius.
Eichstatt: , c.1613. II. Hyacinthus Orientalis Flore Niveo. III. Hycinthus Orientalis Flore Cinereo Albus. IV. Hyacinthus Parvus Stellatus Vernus. Copperplate engraving. Later hand-colour. Plate mark size: 485 x 400 mm. Mounted size: 730 x 640 mm. Very good condition. 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.

Low, Charles Rathbone.
1613. 8vo. 2 vols. XX, 542 pp. VI, 596 pp. Original blue cloth, title gilt to spines, blind panelling to the boards, pale yellow surface-paper endpapers. Neatly rebacked with the original spines laid down. First edition, uncommon in the cloth. Forms the basis for studies of campaigns and exploration wherever the Bombay Marine operated: in the Red Sea, the Gulf, the Arabian Sea, the Laccadives, Maldives and west coast of India, the Andamans, Java and Burma. Of primary importance as a record of the history of the British presence in the Gulf, where the Bombay Marine served as police force, mail carrier, ethnographer, surveyor and, when necessary, strike force for over three centuries - in particular in the period when British relations with the Gulf sheikhdoms were being consolidated. Includes detailed accounts of hydrographic surveys by the Indian Navy, including those in the Gulf. Never surpassed as a history of the maritime arm of India's foreign policy. - Engraved bookplates of the Royal Artillery Library, Woolwich, to the front pastedowns with manuscript annotations of their receipt in April 1878; small paper press-mark labels above. Extremeties slightly rubbed, light browning, but overall a very good set. Macro, Bibliography of the Arabian Peninsula, 1492. NMM V, 2273.

JOLY, Guillaume;
Paris, Pierre Chevalier, 1613. In-12 de 69, (1) pp., vélin ivoire, filets et roulettes dorés en encadrement sur les plats entièrement ornés d'un semis de fleurs de lys, dos lisse orné de même, tranches dorées, boite-étui de maroquin marine doublé de velours ivoire (reliure de l'époque). Édition originale de ce brûlot anti-duels. S'adressant directement à la reine mère Marie de Médicis, le juriste Guillaume Joly (1533-1613) se fait, dans ce court texte partisan et incisif, le pourfendeur de la pratique du duel. Dénonçant ce "monstre des duels, nouveau Minotaure" il encourage la souveraine à faire preuve de la plus extrême rigueur afin "d'exterminer cette peste de la France". Considérant que les "loups-garoux acharnez à la proye humaine" se moquent des édits royaux interdisant déjà les duels, il n'hésite pas à préconiser des châtiments exemplaires, telle la roue, et une mort ignominieuse pour les contrevenants. "Sous Louis XIII, où l'on se battit beaucoup, témoins les édits de plus en plus sévères qui se succèdent à de courts intervalles, et les exécutions capitales, pour cause de duel, de Billy dict Haut le Pied, pendu le huitième mai 1623, et de messire François de Montmorency, sieur de Bouteville, qui ne fut que décapité, par grâce spéciale de Sa Majesté, le 21 juin 1627" (Bulletin du Bibliophile, 1848, n° 20, Des livres et recueils de pièces relatifs au duel, pp. 830-831).

Harcourt, Robert
London: Printed by John Beale, for W. Welby, 1613. [16],71pp. Small quarto. Sumptuous 19th-century crushed red morocco by Bedford, elaborately gilt. Trimmed close along the top edge, occasionally touching text. Very good. The Brayton Ives - E.D. Church copy, with an engraved bookplate from each 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. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 613/73. JCB (3)II:.95. SABIN 30296. STREETER SALE 34.
