BESLER, B.
[Nuremberg] 1613. Broadsheet (c. 57 x 47cm), with engraved title, engraved portrait with coat-of-arms of Besler, 4 engraved seasonal titles, and 367 engraved plates (one double); a few minor spots and some occasional faint marginal waterstains, a fine copy in seventeenth-century red morocco, gilt panels on sides, spines gilt with vellum labels, gilt edges. First edition of the most celebrated florilegium ever published. The Hortus Eystettensis is a magnificent pictorial record of the flowers growing in the greatest German garden of its time, that of Johann Konrad von Gemmingen, the Prince Bishop of Eichstätt. 'The importation of exotic species, the product of rapid colonial expansion and increased trade in the 16th century, enlarged the horticultural repertoire and fed a growing fashion for beautiful and exotic plants, confirmed by the appearance of printed florilegia at the beginning of the 17th century, of which the 'Hortus Eystettensis' is the outstanding example' (Watson and Raphael, 'The Camerarius florilegium')./'The garden of Eichstätt was started in 1596 by the Prince Bishop Johann Konrad von Gemmingen, who commissioned Camerarius to design and supervise its construction and planting. Upon Camerarius' death two years later in 1598, the work was carried on by his colleague the Nuremberg apothecary Basil Besler, who arranged to have the remainder of Camerarius' plants transferred to Eichstätt...Under [Besler's] direction the Prince Bishop's garden soon became the most famous in Germany, and in 1606 Besler began to produce a grand illustrated catalogue at the Bishop's … [Click Below for Full Description]

BESLER, Basil (1561-1629)
Eichstatt, 1613. Hand-coloured engraving. 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.

Farnaby was called by Wood ‘the chief Grammarian, Rhetorician, Poet, Latinist and Grecian of his time’ (quot. in ODNB), and his notes on Seneca remained standard accompaniments to the text throughout the following century in Europe as well as England. The laudatory poems at the end include one by Ben Jonson, and Farnaby returned the favour by praising Jonson in the preface to his 1615 Martial. (ESTC S117120)

Bellarmin, Robert, SJ.
(Rome, Stefano Paolini f. Typographia Savariana, 1613).. 8vo. (16), (88) pp. With woodcut arms of the Pope on first and engraved arms of Savary de Breves 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 ponctue l'arabe, change et ajoute quelque chose au texte primitif de Bellarmin, mais avec son consentement. Ce volume rare est le premier publie avec les beaux characteres 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.

CAMÕES (CAMOENS), Luis de.
Adamson, Memoirs of the life and writings of Luis de Camoens II, pp. 296-299; Porbase 821.134.3-13"15" (http://purl.pt/21863). The great epic poem of Portuguese exploration, in the original Portuguese, a monument of Portuguese literature that gave a Homeric aura to Renaissance voyages of discovery and colonial conquests, here in the first edition to include the extensive prose commentaries by the author's close friend Manuel Correia (or Correa) de Montenegro, who died before publication. In mythology Lusus, a son or companion of Bacchus, is said to have founded Lusitania, approximately corresponding to the modern kingdom of Portugal, so the Portuguese heroes of the epic are called Luciadas. "The 'Lusiads', as a synthesis of national sentiment and literary development, stands unchallenged as the epic of the Portuguese nation, and it celebrates more than anything else the voyage of Da Gama and the intrepid bravery of the Portuguese on land and sea" (Lach). With some quires browned and with 1 small worm hole running through the second half, but otherwise in good condition. Binding with a 1×2 cm hole in the vellum covering the spine and slightly wrinkled and dirty, but also good. The most important edition for the study of Portugal's greatest epic.
