        Bedford Shire And The Situation of Bedford described with the armes of thos Honorable Familyes that have borne ye titles of Dukes and Earls thereof./Bedforde(inset)

      London 1616 - Engraving with extraordinary original hand color. Sheet size: 16 1/2 x 21 3/4". Inventory#: p255pmat. 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.

        Devonshire with Excester Described And the Armes of such Nobles as have borne the titles of them.

      1616 - London, John Sudbury & George Humble, 1616, Latin text edition. 385 x 520mm. A good, early impression. Engraved by Jodocus Hondius, this is one of the most decorative maps of the county, with inset plan of Exeter, royal crest and armorials. This example comes from the only non-English edition of Speed's Theatre, produced for the Continental market. Its lack of success makes it comparatively scarce: it was only after 1918 that the British Museum obtained a complete Latin volume. CHUBB: xxiv; SKELTON 11.

Sein Spezialgebiet war die Landgewinnung sowie der Deich- und Festungsbau. 1600 wirkte er am Lehrbuch «Practijck des lantmetens» von Jan Pietersz mit, dass bei Willem Blaeu erschien. 1602 wurde Sems Landvermesser in Friesland. Ein Jahr später fertigte er eine detaillierte Karte von Leeuwarden an, die von Pieter Bast gedruckt wurde. Von 1604 bis 1608 beaufsichtigte er die Anlage der Festungen in Bourtange, Delfzijl und Bellingwolde. Etwa 1610 zog er nach Bunde. Das Bunder Neuland war seit 1604 mit Hilfe Amsterdamer Investoren eingepoldert worden. 1616 wurde Sems bei Einpolderungen bei Bredstedt hinzugezogen und beteiligte sich am Kanalsystem von Christianshavn auf Amager, kehrte aber 1618 zurück, um Grenzstreitigkeiten bei Ter Apel mit der Provinz Drente zu klären. 1621 war er wieder in Bunderneuland. Der Polder war inzwischen eine Art ?Niemandsland? , was zu Streitereien zwischen dem Niederländern und Graf Enno III. führte. Ostfriesland stand aber schon seit Jahren unter derart niederländische Herrschaft, dass Enno sogar die Aufnahme Ostfrieslands in die Niederlande beantragte. Dies scheiterte jedoch an den Landständen. Im dreißigjährigen Krieg nutzen die Niederländer Ostfriesland allerdings als winterlichen Versorgungsstützpunkt und quartierten, ohne dass Enno irgendetwas hätte unternehmen können, ab 1622 die gefürchteten Truppen des Söldners Ernst von Mansfeld im Lande ein. 1623 befand sich Sems in Groningen und gab im gleichen Jahr sein Buch «De arithmetische fundamenten» in Emden heraus. Um diese Zeit wurde er auch zum Deichgrafen von Bunderneuland ernannt. 1625 wurde sein Polder bei Bredstedt durch eine Sturmflut wieder zerstört. 1626 erhielt er den Auftrag eine Karte vom Gebiet nördlich von Pieterburen zu zeichnen und zwei Jahre später arbeitete er am Festungsbau in Westerwolde mit. Er geriet aber zunehmend in finanzielle Schwierigkeiten, so dass von 1629 bis 1632 seine Einnahmen gepfändet wurden. 1635 starb er, nachdem er sich kurze Zeit in Niederländisch-Brasilien an Festungbauten beteiligt hatte. 1400 gr.

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.

        DISPENSE pour le logis des gens de guerre dans le comté de Dunois, "faict a Paris le vingt et quatriesme jour de decembre mil six cens seize", signée par Louis XIII (secrétaire) et par le cardinal de Richelieu.

      1616 - Une page (222 X 336). "Le Roy voullant conserver de tous logemens et courses de gens de guerre le pais et comté de Dunois en faveur et a la recommandation de Monsieur le comte de St Paul, sa majesté a faict tres expresses inhibitions et deffances a tous collonnels, cappitaines, chefs et conducteurs de gens de guerre tant de cheval que de pied de loger ny souffrir loger en lestandue dudict comté de Dunois, [.] sur peine de la vie [etc.]". CE DOCUMENT date de la régence de Marie de Médicis (1610-1617). LE PAYS EST A NOUVEAU EN PLEINE GUERRE CIVILE. Bien que Louis XIII soit majeur depuis 1614, sa mère continue à administrer le royaume. Mais en 1617, Louis XIII fait assassiner Concini, remet l'autorité à son favori de Luynes et éloigne sa mère de la cour. Richelieu est sacré évêque de Luçon en 1607 alors qu'il n'a que vingt-deux ans. Le jeune prélat s'occupe exclusivement de ses fonctions ecclésiastiques jusqu'en 1614, époque à laquelle il siége aux états généraux comme député du clergé de sa province. Chargé de haranguer le roi à la clôture des états, il sait mêler d'adroites flatteries aux doléances dont il est l'interprète. Ses manières insinuantes lui gagnent les faveurs de la cour. Le contrôleur général des finances, Barbin, et la marquise d'Ancre, Leonora Galigaï, le présentent à la reine mère et, en 1616, l'évêque de Luçon devient aumônier de Marie de Médicis, puis secrétaire d'Etat. L'année suivante, après l'assassinat du maréchal d'Ancre et par une prévoyance d'ambition que l'avenir justifia, il suit la reine mère exilée à Blois, s'associant honorablement à ses disgrâces, sans toutefois compromettre ses intérêts propres auprès de Louis XIII. Le succès de son entreprise de réconciliation entre Marie de Médicis et son fils permet à Richelieu d'être rappelé au pouvoir : il obtient le chapeau de cardinal et entre au conseil du roi en 1624. Dès lors, une fois la reine mère à nouveau exilée et son fils Louis XIII trop faible pour s'opposer à lui, Richelieu peut donner toute la mesure à sa souveraine autorité et l'on peut dire qu'il fut le véritable roi de France de 1624 à 1642, c'est-à-dire jusqu'à son dernier souffle. BEAU DOCUMENT : la signature de Richelieu, qui n'est encore qu'évêque de Luçon, bien que fraîchement promu secrétaire d'état, est appliquée ; sa réunion avec celle de Louis XIII en fait un ENSEMBLE RARE.

        DISCOURS véritable des affaires présentes, envoyé au Roy de la Grande Bretagne, par un quidan (sic) de la Cour du tres-chrestien Roy de France & de Navarre.

      S.l., 1616, - petit in-8, 23-[1] pp., cartonnage percaline caramel, titre manuscrit sur le premier plat (rel. amateur du XIXe).Première édition. Ce texte anonyme — il est signé B. C. et l'épître dédicatoire D. S. L. — critique "les brigues et les menées" du prince de Condé (1588-1646) pendant la régence de Marie de Médicis. L'auteur se défend de vouloir porter "quelque jugement téméraire" mais force lui est de constater la cupidité et les intrigues de cet "ingrat" qui fut "comblé d'honneurs et de biens" et qui maintenant "conduit une armée contre son roi", sans pour autant fermer les yeux sur la duplicité des ministres et des favoris "qui couvrent leur malversation du manteau royal". Preuve supplémentaire de sa noirceur, Condé accusa le duc d'Épernon, "un des plus grands serviteurs et des plus utiles", d'avoir fomenté l'assassinat de Henri IV mais "tout s'accorde à dire que [Ravaillac] n'a point été suscité, conseillé, ni poussé de qui que ce soit, et qu'il ne l'a fait que de son propre mouvement". En effet, il était "un homme merveilleusement mélancolique, plein de noires pensées, nourri dans une superstitieuse dévotion, où le malin esprit vint à se glisser".

A later Italian translation by Briganti of Orta and Monardes. This translation is made from Clusius' Latin translation of both works and not from the original. It illustrates how European knowledge of the texts of Orta and Monardes was principally disseminated via Clusius' version rather than the Portuguese and Spanish originals.Orta's work was first published in Goa in 1563 and is a treatise on medical plants of India. 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. He writes of Copall, Anime, Tacamahaca, Balsamo, Guiacum, the most interesting Mechoacan, etc. Furtheron this work contains the first written account and illustration of tobacco, its use as a wound-herb and in the religious ceremonies of the Red Indians.Three small red old paint spots on title and 2 index leaves with minor paper damage.Wellcome I, 4663.

        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. Folio (27.4 x 19.6 cm.), contemporary sheep (rubbing, scraping, and other wear, especially to upper outer corner of front cover), spine gilt with raised bands in six compartments, black leather lettering piece (somewhat defective), gilt letter. Small repair to title page. Occasional light dampstains. Minor worming in lower outer margins of leaves 126-59, never affecting text. Light toning. Overall in good to very good condition. Six-line contemporary ink inscription, and another of four lines, dated 1722, on recto of front free endleaf. Old ink notation at top of front pastedown endleaf. Early (contemporary?) ink marginalia. 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.

        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.

        Hiberniae, Britannicae, Insulae, Nova Descriptio.

      London 1616 - Engraving with extraordinary original hand color. Sheet size: 17 x 20 3/4". Inventory#: p262pmat. From the Theatre 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.
