Volume 2 lacks the title page; full contemporary leather, rebacked with the original spine laid down; some staining to a few pages on the bottom margin; about very good. Volume 3 has a typographical error not mentioned in Pforzheimer, the imprint of Magnetick Lady reading M.CD.XI instead of M.DC.XI. Full contemporary leather; rebacked with the original spine laid down and with some loss to the bottom edge of the front two blanks; very good. All volumes are housed in matching slipcases. Jonson was the most prominent contemporary of Shakespeare, whose theater produced some of Jonson?s plays and who acted in at least one of them. Jonson?s posthumous reputation sank as Shakespeare?s rose, but the twentieth-century saw a positive reappraisal of his work, led in part by T.S. Eliot.

      Milan: Juan Baptista Bidelo 1616 - 2 parts in one vol., variant woodcut printer’s device on titles, some browning in places, textblock weak at one juncture, pp. [xii, including final blank leaf], 407; 448, 12mo, contemporary vellum over boards, a little soiled and worn, good A relatively early edition of this important text: Palau quotes Menéndez Pelayo [in translation]: ‘La Diana has influenced modern literature more than any other pastoral novel, more than the Arcadia of Sannazaro, more than Daphnis and Chloe, and had no rival until Bernard de St. Pierre. This influence did not extend to Italy, where the pastoral dramas of Tasso and Guarini held sway, but it was very great in France and England.’ Indeed, La Diana is a source for Shakespeare, in The Two Gentlemen of Verona. If the Diana did not find such fertile ground in Italy, it is curious that there should have been three sixteenth-century editions at Venice, and this at Milan in 1616 - all in Spanish, however.Montemayor, or Montemor as is his Portuguese original patronymic, wrote only seven books of the Diana, but ‘continuations’ as well as parodies and imitations were not long in coming, that of Alonso Perez being one of the first continuations. Cervates judged Montemayor’s verses harshly, but recognized the remarkable merit of his Spanish prose.

The first edition of Monardes was published in Sevilla, 1565. Monardes tells of the various herbs and gums brought from the New World and their medicinal virtues.

        Paraphrasis de los Psalmos de David: reduzidos al phrasis, y modos de hablar de la lengua Española, en el sentido que los dixo el Propheta segun que los entienden los Sanctos. Dedication to D. Felipe III and prologue by Fray Luis Gonçalez, O.P.

      Lisbon, En la officina de Pedro Crasbeeck, 1616. - Large oval woodcut of Christ on title page. Numerous woodcut initials. Several woodcut tailpieces and typographical dividers. Typographical headpiece. (6), 304, (5) ll. Leaf E1 signed "B" in error. Leaves 87, 115, 144, 163, 200, 254-255, and 258 misprinted as 78, 119, 134, 164, 100, 253-254, and 250, respectively.

Bookplate of Alfonso Cassuto. His small, discrete armorial blindstamp in blank portion of title page. ---- FIRST and ONLY EDITION thus of a work written for the benefit of seventeenth-century Spanish nuns. Cáceres y Sotomayor was inspired to write this work by a nun who heard him preach on a psalm, and admitted that she was very jealous of monks, who had enough education to understand the words of the psalms that were sung throughout services every day: "que uno de los mayores desconsuelos que sentia su spiritu en el continuo exercicio del coro, era dezir, y cantar siempre lo mesmo sin entendello mas un dia que otro, y que tenia grande invidia a los Religiosos, pareciendole que de necessidad avian de medrar mucho en la devocion y en el spiritu: pues entienden lo que cantan" ( 6r). In Spain at this period it was strictly forbidden to translate the Bible: "lo qual està con mil razones prohibido, y dello avemos de huyr con todo cuydado" ( 6v). Cáceres y Sotomayor wrote this work specifically for such nuns, giving the Latin text followed by a lengthy paraphrase and explication, line by line and sometimes word by word. The taxation statement on the verso of the title page, the licenses on the recto of the following leaf, and the king's Alvará on the verso granting Fray Luís Gonçalves (i.e., Gonzalez?) a ten-year privilege for this book, are all in Portuguese. The colophon, dated 2 January 1616, is in Spanish. Fr. Antonio de Cáceres y Sotomayor was a native of Cáceres, in Estremadura, Spain. He entered the Dominican Order and became Archbishop of Astorga, a member of the King's council, and confessor to King Felipe III. He died in 1615, and the book was brought to press by the Dominican Fr. Luis Gonzalez (or Gonçalves?), who edited it and provided some preliminary matter, including a dedication to the king, which Cáceres y Sotomayor had planned, and a preface to the reader, explaining in more detail how he came to publish the work.Curiously, Felipe III of Spain, who ruled in Portugal as Filipe II, is referred to on the title page and elsewhere in this book printed in Lisbon as Felipe III.---- Arouca S483. Garcia Peres p. 85 (without collation; incorrectly referring to Cáceres y Sotomayor as "religioso Português"). Palau 39043 (calling for only 5 preliminary leaves). Nicolau Antonio @Nova, I, 108.

        Miscellaneorum theologicorum, quibus non modo scripturae divinae, sed et aliorum classicorum auctorum plurima monumenta explicantur atque illustrantur: libri tres, plurimarum observationum, in hac editione, insigni auctario locupletati : his insuper accessit, consimilis argumenti, liber item quartus, antehac nunquam pervulgatus

      Excudebat Iosephus Barnesius, Oxford 1616 - Small quarto. Collation: [par.]4 2[par.]4 A-3K4 3L*4 3L-4L4 4M2 (lacking final blank leaf 4M2). Pagination: [16], 439, 444-452, [8], 453-645, [1] pp. FIRST COMPLETE EDITION, and the first edition printed in England. Scarce: ours is apparently the only copy in the market; no copy has appeared at auction in over 35 years. Nicholas Fuller (c.1557-1623) was an English Hebraist and theologian whose skill in Semitic languages was recognized by his contemporaries including Buxtorf. Yet there are only two extant published writings to his name: the present work ("Miscellaneorum theologicorum," a.k.a. "Miscellaneorum sacrorum libri"), often reprinted, which contains a series of comments on difficult or controversial biblical texts, and the "Dissertatio de nomine Yaweh." "Fuller's writings contain ample evidence of his expertise as a Semitic scholar. It is evident from the comments he makes in 'Miscellaneorum sacrorum libri' that he recognizes the importance of cognate languages such as Syriac, Arabic, and Aramaic for understanding the Hebrew Bible, and is clearly well versed in them. He also appreciates the comments of medieval rabbis for elucidating textual difficulties. While he draws much on the leading Christian transmitters of Hebrew learning such as Nicholas de Lyre, Pagninus, Muenster, Tremellius, and Fagius, he often records his debt to the principal Jewish exegetes and grammarians. He obviously had firsthand knowledge of what he calls the 'rabbinica expositio' of certain words. He cites Rashi frequently. He refers to David Kimchi as 'doctissimus Hebraeorum grammaticus' (Critici sacri, ix.2, 862) and quotes from his grammar and lexicon. He regards Ibn Ezra as a leading rabbinic authority and describes him as 'magni nominis rabbinus' (Critici sacri, ix.2, 892)" -- Oxford DNB. The present edition contains an entirely new book (Lib. IV) and Fuller's autobiographical preface, upon which the entry in Wood's Ath. Oxon. (II, 327) was founded. Books 1-3 were first published at Heidelberg in 1612; for the present edition these were corrected by Fuller himself and printed under the author's own supervision by Joseph Barnes, the first printer of the Oxford University Press: "In 1585 the University lent 100 Pounds Sterling to Joseph Barnes, bookseller of Oxford, with which to establish a press, and an ordinance of Star Chamber of the following year specially allowed one press and one apprentice at Oxford, besides a chief printer. It is know that Barnes lives first in a house in the High Street, and next at what is now St. Mary's entry, and there worked as sold Printer to the University until 1617, most of the products of his press being theological, whether sermons or treatise" (Madan, A Brief Account of the University Press at Oxford, p. 25). Barnes died in 1618, but "during his lifetime his shop seems to have been a convivial meeting place for college fellows and may have circulated London newspapers, making it a precursor of later coffee-shops" (Cambridge History of the Book in Britain vol. IV [1557-1695], p. 669). REFERENCES: Madan, Oxford Books, p. 105. STC (2nd ed.); 11461. FINE COPY.

        Huntington Both Shire and Shire Towne With the Ancient Citie Ely Described/Huntington(inset)/Ely(inset)

      London 1616 - Engraving with extraordinary original hand color. Sheet size: 16 1/2 x 22". Inventory#: 256. From the Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine. The Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine was the first complete atlas of the British Isles ever produced, containing 67 maps of the counties of England, Wales and Ireland, together with maps of the Isles of Wight and Man and also the Channel Islands. This intricately detailed map is a prime example of Speed's particular style and talent. The uncolored editions of Speed's maps are classic and highly sought after, as they reflect the true quality of Speed's work unhindered by colorists. The color on many Speed maps was generally applied years after they were produced, occasionally by private collectors. To all those interested in cartography, the name of John Speed is synonymous with early county maps of Great Britain.  His predecessors, Saxton, Norden, and one or two lesser figures had laid the groundwork for the first mapping of Britain in the days of Queen Elizabeth.  By the end of the 16th century, however, the increase in travel and commerce had created a need for better maps, and Speed's quickly replaced those of his predecessors.  Not only were they more accurate, but undoubtedly the beauty of the engraving, the fine lettering and elaborate ornamentation appealed to the original buyers as much as they do to us today.  Speed's atlas was so ambitious and of such high artistic and intellectual merit that it remained the standard reference for Great Britain until the beginning of the eighteenth century.  The atlas was so highly acclaimed that editions continued to appear until the 1770's. Speed was one of the earliest English antiquarians, and his interest in history led him to add vignettes to his maps of great past events, together with town and architectural plans.  Most maps, for example, contain representations of battles that occurred in the given county, of ancient artifacts and monuments, such as Stonehenge, and of the great cathedrals and palaces of medieval and Tudor England.  The plates were engraved in Amsterdam by the great Dutch mapmaker Jodocus Hondius and exhibit the highest level of craftsmanship and artistic embellishment, reflecting the pervasive and appealing Mannerist style of the period, with strapwork and fretwork cartouches, heraldic crests, and costumed figures.  The decoration and accuracy of Speed's maps, particularly with regard to the lavish use on each map of the coats-of-arms of that country's early leading nobles, inspired the later British county maps of Blaeu and Jansson.

        "New England" from The General Historie of Virginia, New-England and the Summer Isles

      London, 1616. THE FIRST MAP OF NEW ENGLAND Copper-plate engraving: 117/8" x 137/8" References: Seymour I. Schwartz & Ralph E. Ehrenberg, The Mapping of America (New York, 1980), 96-99; Thomas Suarez, Shedding the Veil (Singapore, 1992), 127-9; M.B. Pritchard & H.M. Taliaferro, Degrees of Latitude: Mapping Colonial America (Williamsburg, 2002), n. 6. In 1614, five years after returning to England from Virginia, Captain John Smith returned to the New World, this time to the coasts of Maine and Massachusetts Bay - the region that would come to be known, thanks to the map that he subsequently published, as "New England." This map, the result of Smith's personal explorations and field surveys, covers the area from Penobscot Bay to Cape Cod. It is the earliest map devoted to the region and the foundational work of New England cartography. Smith's second New World voyage was initiated by the invitation of four London merchants who financed two ships that sailed in March 1614 with instructions to return with a profitable cargo. Smith made the Atlantic crossing in a relatively speedy six weeks, arriving off Monhegan Island near the Kennebec estuary. By that time the waters of New England, particularly Maine, were being visited by dozens of English and French fishing vessels a year. While the crew of one of Smith's vessels concentrated on catching fish and collecting other valuable commodities, Smith continued down the coast to chart and explore, lamenting the poor quality of existing maps: "[I] had six or seven several plots of those Northern parts, so unlike each to other, and most so differing from any true proportion, or resemblance of the Country, as they did me no more good, than so much waste paper, though they cost me more." In the course of his explorations, he named Plymouth Rock, describing its location as "an excellent good harbor, good lands, and no want of anything but industrious people." (This description proved the incentive, six years later, for the Mayflower Pilgrims to relocate here from their first, unsatisfactory settlement in Holland.) In mid-July, after just six weeks, Smith returned to England, but in that remarkably short span of time he had accumulated the raw materials for this highly accurate and thorough map of the New England coastline. The map, engraved by Simon van de Passe, was published as part of Smith's Generall Historie of Virginia, New-England, and the Summer Isles, one of the most important books in the history of the colonization and settlement of America..

      Paris. . 1616 - [8],375,[16] leaves. Early vellum. Titlepage slightly worn at fore edge. Scattered light soiling. Slight worming in the gutter, not affecting text; two wormholes through last few leaves, minutely affecting text in spots. Bookplate of famous collector Alberto Parreno on verso of final leaf. Generally very good. Fourth French edition of this most important source book on the Indians of Mexico and Peru and on the natural history of South America. A Jesuit father, Acosta spent seventeen years in American missions in Mexico and Peru between 1571 and 1588. While in Peru he was instrumental in founding the printing press there, and its first productions, in 1585, were prepared by him. In addition to being an accomplished linguist, Acosta was one of the first to formulate a systemic theory of anthropology, suggesting a classification of different peoples into different types, which foreshadowed later ideas of social evolution. "As a natural historian, Acosta surpassed Oviedo. He took a philosophical approach to natural phenomena, searching for causes and effects in a spirit of critical inquiry.The subject of his moral history is pre- Columbian civilizations, particularly the Aztecs and the Incas, whose religions, customs, and governments he admiringly compares" - Delgado- Gomez. "He provided great detail in his descriptions of sailing directions, mineral wealth, trading commodities, Indian history, etc. Consequently his work operated more strongly than any other in opening the eyes of the rest of Europe to the great wealth that Spain was drawing from America" - Streeter. Acosta was a keen observer of New World plants. He "mentions most of the plants used in Peru as foodstuffs or as medicinals, and even the ornamentals. He remarks that the Indians loved flowers just for their beauty" - Shaw. There is also a detailed discussion of plants exported to the Old World, such as ginger, and the use of coca in Peru.

Sehr seltener erster Druck der postum erschienenen Kommentare (Vorlesungen) von Wesembeck zum Prozess- und Privatrecht!; Sehr seltener erster Druck der postum erschienenen Kommentare (Vorlesungen) von Wesembeck zum Prozess- und Privatrecht!. Matthaeus WESENBECIUS (1531 - 1586) studierte in Löwen, begann seine Lehrtätigkeit im Jahre 1557 in Jena und folgte im Jahre 1569 einem Ruf nach Wittenberg. Dort wurde er Nachfolger des verstorbenen Johannes Schneidewin. Von Wesembeck wird behauptet, er habe die ramistische Methode in die Jurisprudenz eingeführt. Die neue Methode von Petrus Ramus war gerade an den protestantischen Universitäten sehr umstritten. So hat die Leipziger Universität die ramistische Methode untersagt und jedem Rechtslehrer angedroht, daß er im Falle des Zuwiderhandelns die Universität zu verlassen habe. Sein Hauptwerk sind die Paratitla zu den Digesten und zum Codex, das zum bestimmenden Lehrbuch in Deutschland wurde. Paratitla sind keine Kommentare. Sie werden "paratitla" genannt, weil sie der Einteilung der Digesten und des Codex in Bücher und Titel folgen und zu jedem Titel eine zusammenfassende systematische Darstellung enthalten. Sie sind aber keine Erläuterungen der einzelnen Sätze dieser Rechtsquellen. Etwa 30 Jahre nach Tod konnten die Erben von Wesembeck den Juristen Nicolaus Bulacher gewonnen, den Kommentar von Wesembeck in einer überarbeiteten Form zu publizieren. Es handelt sioch um einen Kommentar zum vierten Buch des Codex Iustinianus, das dem Prozeßrecht (auch zum Privatrecht) gewidmet ist. Wesembeck hat diese Materie in seinen Vorlesungen vorgetragen, aus diesen Manuskripten hat Bulacher den Kommentar zusammengestellt. Es ist ein sehr sorgfältig ausgearbeiteter Kommentar, dessen Allegationen bis in die Kommentatorenzeit zurückreicht, Jason de Mayno wird häufig zitiert. Auch die Urteile zur höchstrichterlichen Rechtsprechung (Reichskammergericht) durch die Werke von Mynsinger und Gaill. Vorgebunden ist ds große Werk von Andreas Gaill zur Rechtsprechung des Reichskammergerichts, das im gleichen jahr erschienen ist. Andreas Gaill (1526 - 1587) legte mit diesem Werk das berühmteste forensisch-kasuistische über das Reichskammergericht vor. Gaill, aus einem alten Kölner Patriziergeschlecht stammend, studierte an den Universitäten Köln, Orleans und Löwen, promovierte 1555 in Bologna und praktizierte zunächst in seiner Vaterstadt als Anwalt. 1558 - 1568 war er Beisitzer am Reichskammergericht zu Speyer, ab 1569 am Reichshofrat in Wien und in den letzten Jahren seines Lebens als Kanzler beim Kurfürsten in Köln tätig. Gail gilt als Begründer der Kameralistik, der Literatur zur Rechtsprechung des Reichskammergerichts. In seinen 1578 erstmals erschienenen Practicae observationes, die vielfach wiederaufgelegt, mehrfach ins Deutsche und zuletzt 1771 gedruckt worden sind, versucht Gail erstmals eine systematische Darstellung der Rechtsprechung des Reichskammergerichts.

Die Predigt schildert nicht nur die Tat, sondern enthält auch eine Ermahnung, die öffentliche Hinrichtung von Misstätern nicht als Lustspiel oder Spektakel zu betrachten, da doch Leute, die "einen gefallen an ihrem grawsamen Jammer und Elende haben, [...] erger denn der Hencker selbst seyn". - So komplett ohne den offenbar manchen Ausgaben beigegebenen Kupferstich mit dem Bildnis des in Eisen gelegten Mörders (hier im Faksimile beiliegend): das VD 17 führt die illustrierte Variante unter separater Nummer.

        Succenturiatus Anatomicus. continens Commentaria in Hippocratem, de Capitis Vulneribus. additae in aliquot capita libri VIII. C. Celsi Explicationes.

      Lugduni Batavorum [Leiden]: apud Iodocum à Colster, . FIRST EDITION of Paaw's commentary on the books of Hippocrates and Celsus on wounds of the head. The text of the first part is in Greek and Latin, and both parts are richly illustrated with very finely executed engravings, a few of which are repeated, which show the anatomy of the head (including the teeth), and the surgical instruments used. The two folding plates are of the skeletal anatomy of the entire body and of the head. Artistically, the glory of this beautiful book is the folding frontispiece, engraved by Andries Jacobsz Stock after Jacob de Gheyn (1565-1629), which depicts Paaw giving an anatomy lesson in the anatomical theatre at Leiden. The theatre was built at his request, and was the first such theatre in the Netherlands. This plate was also published in Paaw's book on the anatomy of the bones published in 1615. It is modelled on the title-page of the Fabrica of Vesalius, of whom Paaw was an ardent admirer, editing an edition of the Epitome in 1616.

First edition of the Workes of Ben Jonson, the publication of which was closely supervised by Jonson, a landmark of English literature. "The publication of the 1616 folio in the very year of Shakespeare's death consolidated Jonson's position as England's foremost living author - Jonson was granted a royal pension of 100 marks - establishing him in fact if not in name as Britain's poet laureate" (ODNB). Jonson was the most celebrated author for the stage and court in Jacobean England, and his work was widely performed through the early eighteenth century. Dryden wrote that if "Shakespeare was the Homer or father of dramatic poets, Jonson was the Virgil," and if he now stands in the shadow of Shakespeare, his literary achievements have been consistently valued through the centuries, and he was praised by Oscar Wilde and James Joyce. The Workes comprises nine plays: Every Man in his Humor, Every Man out of his Humor, Cynthias Revells, Poetaster, Seianus, Volpone, Epicoene, The Alchemist, and Catiline; together with a collection of his Epigrammes, Poetry, and Masques. Personally supervising the preparation of the contents of the Folio, Jonson "used the quarto texts wherever available but scrupulously and systematically revised them, cutting out many marginal notes, altering the spelling, typography and punctuation in accordance with a consistent if somewhat pedantic plan and introducing considerable editorial matter. The result is that this folio edition may be regarded as authoritative. Moreover Jonson attended the press while it was being printed and introduced many corrections and alterations at that time" (Pforzheimer 559). The engraved title is rich in allegorical significance to "the scope and diversity of Jonson's authorial ambitions" (Donaldson 2011, p. 327 ff.). It was the success of Jonson's Workes that encouraged the consortium of London booksellers to produce the First Folio Shakespeare of 1623, to which Jonson contributed the celebrated verses "To the Memory of My Beloved the Author, Master William Shakespeare -" Poems are invariably a mirror of the poet as well as of the nominal subject and it is plain that Jonson intended himself as well as Shakespeare when he wrote "He was not of an age, but for all time." With a notable modern theatrical provenance: from the library of renowned stage and film actor John Barrymore, signed by him and bearing his distinctive bookplate. Barrymore (1882-1942), "the most conspicuous member of of America's 'Royal Family' of actors" (ANB), who achieved international stardom with his stage performances as Richard III and Hamlet in the 1920s on Broadway and in London. and a meteoric film career.
