Lipsius, Justus
Geneva: Pierre & Jacques Chouet 12mo (13.97 cm, 5.5"). [24] ff., 618 (i.e., 634) pp., [19] ff.. 1613 Second edition of political essays by the Belgian humanist Lipsius (Joest Lips, 1547?-1606), with commentary by the author on the first three books and the beginning of the fourth, and with three newly edited indices at the end. Translated from the original Latin Politicorum sive civilis doctrinae libri sex (first edition 1589) by the French minister Simon Goulart (1543?-1628), these six books, which draw heavily on classical authors (especially Tacitus), hold that the best form of government is principality, i.e., rule by one for the good of all, and that prudence and virtue are the very conditions of civility. The text is printed in roman and italic, with side- and shouldernotes; it is decorated with elegant woodcut initials against a floriated background, one factotum, a handful of head- and tailpieces, and a couple of small vignettes. The woodcut printer's device on the title-page has the monogram "AT" beneath a dolphin & anchor combination with the motto festina tarde, reminiscent of the Aldine device. This edition is not in NUC Pre-1956, and WorldCat locates => just one copy in the U.S. (with a variant imprint, "A Cologny"). Evidence of readership: A short biography of Lipsius in French has been written on the fly-leaves in early ink. Early vellum over flexible boards, somewhat stained and rubbed; evidence of four ties, and ink title to spine. Cropped close with very minor loss to a couple of running headlines and side- or shouldernotes; a few corner-tips torn away and … [Click Below for Full Description]

[QUIROS] QUIROS, Pedro Fernandez de DE BRY, Johann Theodor
Frankfurt: M. Becker, 1613. Folio, printed title within pictorial engraved border, divisional half-title preceding plates, and six engraved maps and views (three double-page); a fine copy in dark green crushed morocco by Sangorski & Sutcliffe. Frankfurt, Matthaus Becker, 1613. A rare and notably early printing of the famous Quiros memorial about the discovery of Terra Australis, the fifth part of the world.This is the first edition of the tenth part of De Bry's classic collection of "minor" or "petits" voyages - that is, voyages towards the East Indies and Asia, as opposed to the "major" voyages towards the Americas. The De Bry collection is essentially a history and anthology of the Dutch voyages to the East Indies and the Pacific by way of the Cape of Good Hope.Quiros, the last of the great Spanish discoverers, sailed on the Mendana expedition across the Pacific in 1595, and then commanded his own expedition of 1605-06 in search of the 'Terra Australis', actually discovering Tahiti and other Pacific Islands, and reaching the New Hebrides. His second-in-command, Luis Vaez de Torres, took one of the expedition's ships through the consequently named Torres Strait, and probably sighted Cape York.The remainder of Quiros's life was spent petitioning the King for an expedition with settlers to Terra Australis, without success; his secret 'Memorial' to the Spanish Court, which gradually became leaked through Europe in editions such as this, provoked the search for a southern continent that was not finished until Cook's expedition 150 years later. … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bellarmin, Robert, SJ.
1613. 8vo. (16), (88) pp. With woodcut arms of the Pope on first and engraved arms of Savary de Brèves on final leaf of prelims. Contemp. blindstamped brown full calf with ornamental central and cornerpiece decorations. Marbled endpapers. The first book ever printed with the fine Arabic types of the Roman Typographia Savariana: the first Arabic edition of Robert Bellarmino's catechism, an abridgment of his "Dichiarazione piu copiosa della dottrina christiana" (1598). Translated by the Maronites Vittorio Scialac (d. 1635) and Gabriel Sionita (1577-1648). "Les traducteurs disent qu'ils ont ponctué l'arabe, changé et ajouté quelque chose au texte primitif de Bellarmin, mais avec son consentement. Ce volume rare est le premier publié avec les beaux charactères arabes de Savary" (de Backer/S.). The present copy does not contain the Latin text at all, hence it has only 88 unnumbered pages of text instead of the 171 numbered pages usually cited. This catechism and the Arabic-Latin Psalter produced the following year would remain the only works to leave the Typographia Savariana; the types have survived and are now in the archives of the Imprimerie Nationale in Paris. - Stains and traces of moisture. Old shelfmark labels to spine, cover and final flyleaf; bookplate of the Dutch Jesuit Seminary on final pastedown. Contemp. ms. notes to endpaper. Rare; only two copies in auction records (the last in 1999). Schnurrer 242. Smitskamp, PO 181. De Backer/Sommervogel I, 1188f. OCLC 491559247.

SUAREZ DE FIGUEROA, Cristobal
Madrid: Imprenta Real, 1613. Small quarto, with an engraved title, occasional spotting; modern morocco, a fine copy. D. First edition, first issue: an exceptional rarity. Mendaña and Quiros searching for the southern continent: the first of two issues of the first edition (a second issue appeared three years later). This has always been an extremely rare book, and at least two famous collectors had enough trouble finding it to write about the difficulty: Alexander Dalrymple states in his Historical Collection that he had 'not been able to procure a copy of Figueroa' until, when his first volume was in the press in 1769, he acquired a copy 'from Spain' and was able to add the final section to his book; and Rex Nan Kivell wrote to Bjarne Kroepelien (quoted in the Kroepelien catalogue): 'I was delighted to get your list of books and am very envious of them, particularly... your Suárez de Figueroa... [which] I have been hunting for twenty years'.The text, an account of the deeds of Don García Hurtado de Mendoça (captain-general of Chile and from 1590-96 viceroy of Peru), was commissioned by his family; it describes the wars against the Araucano Indians in Chile and Don García's rule as viceroy; the incursions of Drake, Cavendish and Hawkins are touched upon.Most importantly however, it is a prime source for the history of Mendaña and Quiros. Mendaña's discovery of the Solomons in 1568 is narrated (pp. 228-37), and there is a long account of his second voyage (pp. 238-90), which was despatched from Peru in 1595 to colonise the Solomons and to continue the search for the Southern … [Click Below for Full Description]

QUIROS, Ferdinand
M. Becker, Frankfurt 1613 - Foolscap folio, pp.13-20, some toning, but very good in magnificent red half morocco with gilt lettering by Aquarius. The eighth memorial printed within Quiros' own lifetime. A rare and notably early printing of the famous Quiros memorial about the discovery of Terra Australis, the fifth part of the world. This is one of the few printings of the eighth memorial within Quiros' own lifetime.The four leaves of the memorial are extracted from the tenth part of classic collection of voyages published by Johann de Bry. The collection is essentially a history and anthology of the Dutch voyages to the East Indies and the Pacific by way of the Cape of Good Hope.Quiros, the last of the great Spanish discoverers, sailed on the Mendana expedition across the Pacific in 1595, and then commanded his own expedition of 1605-06 in search of the Terra Australis, actually discovering Tahiti and other Pacific Islands, and reaching the New Hebrides. His second-in-command, Luis Vaez de Torres, took one of the expedition's ships through the consequently named Torres Strait, and probably sighted Cape York.The remainder of Quiros's life was spent petitioning the King for an expedition with settlers to Terra Australis, without success; his secret 'Memorial' to the Spanish Court, which gradually became leaked through Europe in editions such as this, provoked the search for a southern continent that was not finished until Cook's expedition 150 years later.

[James I]. [Henry Howard, Earl of Northampton]
London: Robert Barker, 1613. Sm. 4to, (4), 119, (1)pp. Woodcut on verso of title-page. Modern half brown morocco, marbled boards, backstrip lettered in gilt, very good. First edition, the issue with ?'doeth?" on A3v line 1 (the other issue reads ?'doth?"). DNB notes: ?'The last tract that Northampton composed was written in the autumn of 1613, just before his health began to fail. Designed to accompany the royal proclamation against private challenges and combats, issued on 4 February 1614, it was written in the king's name. James detested duelling, but the treatise also reflected Northampton's own long-standing anxieties. From 1613 a campaign against duelling was under way, led by Northampton and enforced in Star Chamber and the court of the earl marshal. He also collected extensive information on the code and practice of duelling, imported from France and Spain. The proclamation was triggered by several duels involving courtiers, the most notorious being one between Lord Henry Howard, brother of Frances, and the earl of Essex, the husband whom she was divorcing. Northampton recognized that it was not enough to ban duels. Instead he proposed alternative remedies to provide satisfaction for those who believed their honour and reputation had been traduced. The commissioners for the earl marshalship, together with the lords lieutenant in the counties, would hear cases, and heavy punishments would be inflicted on those who disobeyed their attempts at conciliation. Potential duellers were exhorted to remember the king's interest in the lives of his subjects. The treatise exemp … [Click Below for Full Description]
