A very good complete copy of a scarce book with a mention of Shakepeare. John Stow (1524/5–1605), antiquarian and historian was born in London in a well-to-do family of tallow-chandlers but nothing is known of his education. Nevertheless, he wrote English with fluency and clarity, had a good command of Latin, and possessed an extraordinary knowledge of English history and literature. He built up a large library of manuscripts and antiquarian books. His interests included chronicles, charters, ecclesiastical and municipal records, wills, literary works, and learned treatises. He was acquainted with many Renaissance humanist scholars such as John Dee, William Camden, Archbishop Matthew Parker, and Henry Savile. When he joined the Society of Antiquaries some time after its foundation in 1586, he was the only member who was not a gentleman. The Annales was first published in 1580 with the title Chronicles of England from Brute (the legendary first king of Britain). With the edition of 1605 Stow continued the history to the accession of James I. Our edition augmented and expanded by Edmund Howes reaches 1614. To Stow's brief Appendix on the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge is added a 26 page account of the colleges of London University by Sir George Buck. It is believed that Stow was the first English historian to make systematic use of public records for the purpose of his work and that by this research he did more to advance the study of fifteenth-century England than any other writer of his time. In the emendation by Edmund Howes on page 811 there is a mention of Shakespeare: MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING.

Two fine and rare works on surveying, nicely bound together in contemporary vellum. I. Third edition of Erasmus Reinhold's notable work on surveying. The first edition was posthumously published by the author's son in 1574 and its popularity and usefulness demanded further editions in 1594 and 1615. Reinhold (1511-53), senior professor of mathematics and astronomy at Wittenberg, was, after Copernicus, the leading mathematical astronomer of the sixteenth century, and in computational ability he surpassed Copernicus himself. II. First edition in German (1st ed., in Dutch: 1600) of this popular introduction to surveying. Sems (1572-1623) and Dou (1572-1635), both practicing land surveyors in Leyden, both of whom wrote other works on mathematical instruments. Dou was well-known as a cartographer and as the inventor of the Holland circle. He also held the position as the official gauger of wine for the city of Leyden. "This volume is composed of two sections. The first discusses mathematical approaches necessary for the practice of surveying while the second describes the instruments available. For example, the first section covers how to break irregular fields up into easily surveyed rectangles, triangles, etc. It also contains trigonometric tables, with entries to every three minutes of arc, to aid in the calculations...A lengthy section in the second part deals with maps and may be said to form the foundation for seventeenth-century Dutch cartography."-Tomash S 84. The translator, Sebastian Curtius (1576-1659), was a Nuremberg mathematician and surveyor. Occasional minor browning but fine copies. ❧ Bierens de Haan 4307. Kiely, Surveying Instruments, p. 144 (Reinhold) & pp. 161-62 (Dou). .
