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).

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.

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]

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]

With the Bishop?s patronage, he worked both as artist and publisher, directing a team of ten artists and engravers in creating 367 plates over 16 years.Published one hundred and fifty years before Linnaeus created his thorough system of classification; Besler?s great florilegium represents an impressive early attempt to classify plants for the benefit of botanists, doctors and apothecaries.

Vicenza,: ad instantia di Francesco Leni, 1613. Vicenza, ad instantia di Francesco Leni, 1613. In-24 p. (mm. 101x70), p. pergamena coeva, 608 pp.num., 16 cc.nn., titolo al frontespizio entro cornice decorata, testo in carattere corsivo. Dedica a Gio. Battista Minardi. Al fine: Tavola dei Capitoli e una Tavola degli argomenti sopra i Capitoli. Rarissima edizione, assai ricercata, nonostante le scorrettezze tipografiche, poichè rappresenta la prima delle sole tre edizioni della "Commedia" pubblicate nel Seicento, insieme a quelle stampate a Venezia e a Padova nel 1629. Si tratta di un numero di edizioni assai esiguo rispetto ai secoli precedenti, che denota una tendenza regressiva della fortuna dell'opera dantesca, destinata a perdurare fino agli inizi del XVIII secolo. In questa edizione, che segna il ritorno all'essenzialità tipografica, essendo priva di commenti e illustrazioni, compare per la prima volta il titolo "Visione" in luogo di Divina Commedia, che vuole significare “il complesso delle cose da lui vedute nel mistico suo viaggio” (Scartazzini, Enciclopedia Dantesca,II,2154). Cfr. De Batines,I, pp. 101-102: “A senso del de Romanis questo titolo di "Visione", dal Volpi giudicato fantastico, si addice al Poema di Dante forse meglio che quel di "Commedia"” - Mambelli,53. Corto del margine super.; 1 carta (pp. 95/96) molto ben restaurata per angolo infer. mancante (incluse alcune lettere del testo, qui sapientemente trascritte a mano), altrim. esemplare ben conservato.

Illustrated on this engraving are flowers commonly known as Branced bur reed, Broomrape, Water hemlock. Branched Bur Reed and Broomrape are both parasitic plants, relying on other plants for their nutrients and Water hemlock is a notoriously toxic plant. Expertly hand-colored, the stems of these flowers are rich shades of green with well detailed and naturalistic leaves. The flowers of these plants are colored in blue and white. Also illustrated, adding a scientific touch to the already aesthetically pleasing engraving are parts of the bulb and root systems of the plants. Precise lines define and detail the flowers, shading and highlighting them and giving dimension.Basil Besler was an apothecary and botanist who managed the gardens of Bishop Johann Conrad in Eichstatt, Germany .

De Nave, Philologia Arabica, pp. 133-135; Smitskamp, Philologia Orientalis II, pp. 97-100; STCN (4 copies); Vrolijk & Van Leeuwen, Arabic studies in the Netherlands, p. 17. First and only edition of the first Arabic-Latin dictionary ever printed and the first sizable book in the Netherlands that was printed using Arabic types. The publication of this dictionary portrays the growing interest in Arabic in early 17th-century Europe; not just as an aide in Biblical exegesis, but as an important field of study in its own right. The growing importance of Dutch maritime commerce also stimulated the interest in Arabic as an important language in trading with large parts of the world. Therefore this book was printed in a size small enough for merchants and navigators to carry it with them. The compilation of the dictionary took Raphelengius thirty years during which he also had Arabic types cut to be able to print it.Numerous contemporary manuscript annotations (some slightly shaved). Title-page with large tear, repaired with tape, some water stains, browned throughout. An important landmark in the study of Arabic in Europe.

[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]
