ANDREINO (ANDREINI) Gio. Battista
ad instanza di Geronimo Bordoni 1613 In-8 p. (mm. 216x161), p. pergam. antica (risg. rifatti), tit. oro su tassello al dorso, tagli rossi, 13 cc.nn., 177 pp.num., incluso il bel frontespizio inc. in rame che illustra il Paradiso Terrestre con le figure di Adamo ed Eva; testatine, grandi iniziali e finalini silografati ornano il testo. L?opera, dedicata a Maria de' Medici, Reina di Francia, è magnificamente illustrata nel t. da 39 vignette a mezza pag. e 1 a piena pag., tutte incise da Cesare Bassano (firmate col suo monogramma), da disegni di Carlo Antonio Procaccini. "Les représentations ont pour sujets la tentation au Paradis, des démons et des anges, 2 figures pour la Mort; sur plusieurs il figure des personnages jouant des instruments de musique", cosi' Choix de Olschki,VII,10670 (che cita la II ediz. del 1617). "Manca" il ritratto dell?A. Rara "edizione originale" di questo melodramma che è tra le opere più significative del teatro secentesco. Cfr. Cicognara,1423: "Fu stampato tutto il corpo dell'ediz. nel 1613. Fu poi (1617) variato il frontesp. e tolto dall'editore il ritratto dell'Autore che trovasi infatti negli esempl. con la data 1613" - Graesse,I,121: "Cette pièce en cinq actes et en vers libres, est melée de choeurs et de chants. On a prétendu que Milton, dans un de ses voyages en Italie l'avait vue représenter et y avait puisé son idée du ?Paradis Perdu?. La célébrité et la rareté de la pièce viennent de ce que les Anglais ont emporté la plupart des exemplaires dans leur patrie" - Brunet,I,269 - Piantanida,IV,4125: ?Ricercata per le belle figure?.

DANTE
ad instantia di Francesco Leni 1613 In-24 p. (mm. 101x70), p. pergamena coeva, 608 pp.num., 16 cc.nn., titolo al frontesp. 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 delle 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 c. (pp. 95/96) molto ben restaur. per angolo infer. mancante (incluse alcune lettere del testo, qui sapientemente trascritte a mano), altrimenti esemplare ben conservato.

MERCATOR, Michael and HONDIUS, Jodocus
Hondius, Jodocus. Map. Copper engraving with modern hand coloring. Image measures 14 1/2" x 18". This beautifully vibrant map features the Western Hemisphere, surrounded by four roundels containing the map's title (lower right) and three insets of individual areas of North America: the western shores of the Gulf of Mexico, Cuba and Florida, and Hispaniola and Puerto Rico. This map was rendered by Michael Mercator, grandson of Gerardus Mercator, and was the only map he is known to have made. This Latin edition was published c. 1613-1630 and is notable for its attention to detail along the coastlines, with place names arranged with lovely symmetry. In addition, the prominent depiction of a Northwest Passage illustrates contemporary beliefs in the existence of a direct route to the East. The map is in good condition with full margins and has reinforcement on the lower portion of the original fold. Michael Mercator (c.1567-1600), belonged to arguably the most famous family of mapmakers of all time. This map is a fine exemplar of the Mercator legacy. Jodocus Hondius bought Mercator's plates in 1604 and continued to issue this map. (Burden 87)

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.

[Foolscap Press] Cervantes Saavedra, Miguel de; Harriet de Onis, translator
Santa Cruz: Foolscap Press. Hard Cover. Fine. Hard Cover. Number 21 of 90 copies for sale (10 hors commerce). The Foolscap Press is known for its finely made, hand crafted books of works of literature. This new work from the press continues their tradition of surprising and delighting the reader. Their description of the booko says that readers may not realize that Cervantes wrote a series of shorter pieces between Parts 1 and 2 of Don Quixote, which were published as Exemplary Novels in 1613. The translator, Harriet de Onis, pointed out that prior to Cervantes, the novella or short story, as in The Arabian Nights and The Canterbury Tales, was a series of stories linked together by a common thread. With Exemplary Novels, each of the twelve stories is complete in itself, diverse in theme and form. In this story, the mastiff Berganza, along with his mat-mate Cipion find themselves with the ability to speak. The two dogs have a lot to say and may have only one short night in which to say it, as it is unknown when this gift of speech might be taken away. The book has an inventive structure, with full-page scenes of the dogs set in a three-dimensional diorama in the front and back covers of the book creating a box-like structure. There are additional text drawings. Set in Dante and Pepita type and printed letterpress on Magnani Revere paper. The pattern on the soft brown covers resemble the hair of a dog! 9.25 x 11.5 inches. In fine condition. 52 pages. PRI/102512.

BESLER, Basilius
Eichstatt: , 1613. Pl. 43 Size: 545 x 450 mm. Mounted size: 730 x 640 mm. Copper engraving, hand coloured. Very good condition. Large margins. Text on reverse. Three beautiful plants from Basilius Besler's collection of botanicals from the; 'Hortus Eystettensis'. Besler was a Nuremberg apothecary in charge of the elaborate garden of the Bishop Prince of Eichstatt. The plates, illustrating more than a thousand flowers were arranged according to the seasons. When the book was first published in 1613, it was the largest book ever printed and it has tremendous significance for botany as no garden of the Baroque age was documented as precisely as that of the prince-bishop. The designs are impressive with rhythmic patterns of the roots and interesting calligraphy of the letters. The dramatic effect of the whole is enhanced by perfect proportions of the plates and once coloured they make unrivalled decorations.

Notable place names include the Appalachian Mountains and St. Augustine. From the 1613 French edition of "Gerardi Mercatoris Atlas sive Cosmographicae" (Mercator-Hondius Atlas). Originally created by Mercator, this plate was later added to by Hondius. French text on verso. Overall toning, bottom margin folded from previous framing, early reinforcements to margins on verso.

RIDLEY, Marke
London,: Nicholas Okes, 1613.. Small quarto, engraved title-page by Renold Elstrak, with full-page portrait of the author in contemporary handcolouring, 21 engravings in the text (one with two small maps showing New England, Virginia, and Terra Australis); the engraving on leaf T1 with its movable quadrant present; colophon device on last leaf; a few leaves cut close without loss, good margins on the fore-edges with the exception of the title-page which is just touched at the outer edge; faint ownership inscription of Susanna Smalwel (1742?) on initial blank; a very good copy in a period-style calf binding by Aquarius. First edition, first issue (before the printing of errata on the final leaf) of the most important Renaissance treatise on magnetism after the works of Peregrinus and Gilbert and an early sequel to William Gilbert's classic De magnete of 1600. Gilbert had identified the magnetic nature of the Earth, thus identifying a new field for research and experiment which would involve direction-finding, polarity, longitude, and many other subjects of great interest to the mariner. A considerable literature would follow, with Ridley's book an early and pioneering example.The engravings in Ridley's book include a fine portrait of the author, a rare example of an engraving with a moving part or "volvelle", and most interestingly a map of Terra Australis. Any seventeenth-century maps of a Southern Continent are of course of immediate interest; this example, approximately on the Mercator/FinÈ pattern, seems to have escaped the notice of writers on the subject, and it appear … [Click Below for Full Description]

Deering copy, with his gilt morocco bookplate 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.

Eichstatt.. First published 1613. Ca. 1650.. Engraving, handcolored, 19 x 15 1/2 inches (48 x 39cm) on sheet 20 3/4 x 16 3/4 inches. Dampstaining entering the image at lower left, and in upper margin; tiny hole at centre right of plate not affecting the image, faint 'B' in lower margin, light horizontal crease, light offsetting from text page (scarcely noticeable). Thick fabric-like paper. This is one of the stunning plates from Hortus Eystettensis, the first great florilegium "splendid in its array of large drawings, magnificent as a record of the plants in a German garden at the beginning of the seventeenth century" (Hunt). The work commemorates the celebrated gardens of its patron, Johann Konrad von Gemmingen, Prince Bishop of Eichstatt. "The book is horticultural rather than botanical, and is the earliest pictorial record of flowers in a single garden. 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). The plates depict over 1000 flowers representing 667 species, many of them exotics appearing for the first time. The original drawings ... took sixteen years to complete; ten artists and engravers were involved, the most important being Wolfgang Kilian of Augsburg.

Prima edizione di questa rimarchevole opera secentesca di artiglieria terrestre e marittima in cui l'autore discorre anche di varie questioni d'ingegneria quali il recupero dei navigli affondati, i fuochi pirotecnici (assai rilevante la sezione consacrata alla pirotecnia), la costruzione di passerelle e ponti, ecc. Nel trattato l?autore avrebbe comunicato, a giudizio di alcuni, l?idea di produrre armi a tiro ripetuto, precorritrici delle moderne mitragliatrici (in realtà si tratta di ipotesi di tiro continuato mediante giustapposizione di file di fucilieri).

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.

[DRAKE, Sir Francis]. - [Francis PRETTY]
Paris: Jean Gesselin, 1613. 8vo. [8],90,[1]pp. Lacks the world map, as is almost always the case. Titlepage vignette. Leaves A5 & A6 with a small, expert paper repair in lower margin, not affecting text. Twentieth century morocco bound to contemporary style, tooled and ruled in gilt, spine richly gilt Drake's Circumnavigation The first French edition of Drake's circumnavigation, translated from the account inserted in the 1589 edition of Hakluyt's Principal Navigations. The text is traditionally attributed to Francis Pretty, though it is more likely that the information was compiled by Richard Hakluyt himself from three or more sources (see Wagner, Drake's Voyage ). Wagner notes that the additional information found in this French edition but not in Hakluyt is "small but significant" and calls this "the most complete translation of all." Drake's circumnavigation was one of the most important events in maritime history, and this account must have been eagerly read by the French, who would not undertake their own circumnavigation until Bougainville's voyage in 1766. Scarce, this title was lacking from H. P. Kraus's famous Drake.

Besler, Basilius
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

Ownership inscription of T(homas) Grantham, schoolmaster, rector of Waddington, Oxfordshire until 1636; some darkening to covers and minor repair to headcap and joint; normal toning to text; generally very good Scarce second edition, in a luxurious English morocco binding, of the first translation of Montaigne into English by the celebrated Italian linguist and lexicographer John Florio (1533-1625), arguably the most influential translator of the Elizabethan era. Florio's translation of the Essays was a watershed event in the evolution of the English language. In it, he coined a number of new English words, embellishing Montaigne's apothegms with the parallelisms and proverbs of the Italian rhetorical tradition, and ultimately offering the Essays to Anglophone readers in a style as florid and ornate as the original French was simple and unadorned. "Florio's translation of Montaigne is a great work. Translation as an art has rarely, perhaps never, reached such a high level as in the Elizabethan age, and among the great Tudor translations Florio's work stands very high indeed. . . . the translation was probably one of the most influential books ever published in this country" (Yates). … [Click Below for Full Description]
