GALVÃO, Francisco Fernandes.
Lisbon, Por Pedro Crasbeeck, 1613. 4°, nineteenth-century (second half) quarter cloth over marbled boards (minor wear to corners) spine with short title gilt, text block edges sprinkled. Woodcut Bragança arms (in an unusual diamond shape) below a ducal coronet on title page. Title page within typographical border. Woodcut initials. A number of woodcut tailpieces, including one full page on leaf 432 verso. A few running heads and sidenotes touched; some dampstaining in index, final page somewhat soiled. In good to very good condition. Early title page ink inscription by Antonio de Sancta Thereza [2 additional words scored]. (9), 432, (28) ll. *** FIRST EDITION. A second edition appeared in 1619; there were editions in Spanish published at Madrid and Sevile in 1615. Bell writes that the mantle of Frei Thomé de Jesus, the most celebrated preacher of his time, "fell upon Francisco Fernandez Galvão (1554-1610), the prose of whose Sermões . . . is admirably restrained and pure."

After a dozen years as a royal preacher he left for Rome in 1585, where his skill was compared with that of Francisco Panigarola, Bishop of Asti. In 1590, when the Pope named him archdeacon of Villa Nova de Cerveira (archbishopric of Braga), he returned to Portugal, where he again found favor with the royal family. Fernandes Galvão bequeathed his manuscripts, including these sermons, … [Click Below for Full Description]

BESLER, Basil (1561-1629)
Eichstatt: 1613, 1st edition. Hand-coloured engraving. 21 1/8 x 17 1/2 inches. 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.

1613 - Kupferstich von Basilius Besler aus Hortus Eystettensis, Eichstätt ca. 1613, koloriert. Ca. 47 x 26 cm (H). Papier gleichmäßig gebräunt. Das rechte Drittel des Blattes fehlt, es wurde vermutlich wegen eines Papierschadens entfernt. Alt in reliefierter Goldleiste gerahmt. Prachtvolles Blatt aus dem "Hortus Eystettensis", dem großartigsten Werk botanischer Buchillustration des 17. Jahrhunderts mit zwei Darstellungen des Goldlack. Zu verdanken ist der Hortus dem kunstsinnigen Johann Conrad von Gemmingen, Bischof von Eichstätt (reg. 1594-1612), der seinen Regierungssitz in ein Fürstenschloss umbauen ließ, mit prächtigen Gärten darunter. Der Nürnberger Apotheker Basilius Besler (1561-1629) legte im Auftrag dazu eine botanische Prachtpublikation vor, den "Hortus Eystettensis", den Garten von Eichstätt. Erstmals 1613 erschienen zeigt das Werk auf 367 ganzseitigen Kupfertafeln insgesamt 1084 Pflanzen. Ob diese allerdings tatsächlich alle im fürstbischöflichen Garten auf Willibaldsburg gehalten wurden, ist nicht gesichert. Papier gleichmäßig gebräunt. Das rechte Drittel des Blattes fehlt, es wurde vermutlich wegen eines Papierschadens entfernt. Alt in reliefierter Goldleiste gerahmt.

Basil Besler; Kilian, Wolfgang
Basil Besler, Nuremberg. Basil Besler's great botanical work, "Hortus Eystettensis ." is one the most impportant botanical books ever published.The author, Basilius Besler (1562-1629), was a Nuremberg apothecary and botanist.The work commemorated 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 pictoral 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.The plates depict over 1000 flowers representing 667 species, many of them exotics appearing for the first time. The original drawings (most of them now in the University Library, Erlangen) took sixteen years to complete. With Bishops patronage Besler worked as an artist, autor and publisher directing a team of ten artists and engravers. The most important being Wolfgang Kilian of Ausburg. The work was completed in Autumn 1613.References: Nissen 158; Pritzel 745; Hunt 430; Blunt pp95-97; Hans Baier, Aus dem Antiquariat, n.95, 1970, pp.273-280; Coats, The book of Flowers., Image Size : , Platemark Size : 473x395 (mm), 18.625x15.5 (Inches), Paper Size : , Hand Colored, Copper Engraving

MERCATOR, Michael (1565/70-1614)
Amsterdam: Hondius, [1613]. Copper-engraved map, with full original colour, in very good condition apart from manuscript placenames and underlinings. 17 1/4 x 20 7/8 inches. A superb example of one of the most celebrated maps of the Americas, the only printed map by Gerard Mercator's grandson Michael. This copy with lovely full contemporary colour. Made by Gerard's grandson Michael to complete the atlas (Atlantis Pars Altera) begun by Gerard in 1584, this map is noted for its outstanding design and beauty, particularly its symmetrical configuration of circular insets and Mannerist flow of vines, flowers and leaves surrounding the circular map. Largely based on Rumold Mercator's world map of 1587, this map aptly reflects 16th-century knowledge, theories and suppositions regarding the New World. Naturally, most of this new knowledge was coastal, and configurations of any large areas were greatly hampered by the lack of a sound means of determining longitude. Nevertheless, the collective accomplishment of explorers and mapmakers represented in this map is astounding, showing in a generally correct way the vast extent of the New World. "A few of the most famous theories are still present: a large inland lake in Canada, two of the four islands of the North Pole, a bulge to the west coast of South America and the large southern continent" (Burden).
