        "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.

      Freiberg, Melchior Hoffmann, [1616].. (48) SS. Mit Titelbordüre in Holzschnitt; Text durchgehend von doppelter Rahmenlinie eingefaßt. Marmorheftstreifen. 4to.. Leichpredigt auf die Familie des Freiberger Gewürzkrämers Andreas Köhler, der mit seiner Frau, seinem elfjährigen Sohn und seiner neunjährigen Tochter im eigenen Hause ermordet wurde. Obwohl der Täter, Simon Kästner aus Reichsstadt, den Raubmord durch Brandstiftung zu verschleiern suchte, wurde er gefaßt und mit Zangen gerissen und gerädert. 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. Tatsächlich ist nur ein einziges Exemplar mit der Illustration nachweisbar (ULB Halle); dieses ist außerdem unvollständig (es fehlen die Bll. A2-3). Die Exemplare in Gotha, Dresden (2) und Zwickau alle ohne das Kupfer. - Etwas wasserrandig; eine Anstreichung von zeitgenöss. Hand. - VD 17, 125:034515F.

        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. Blas Bruni Celli, Bibliografia Hipocrática, 3234.4to, pp. (xxiv), 270; (ii), 128, fine folding engraved frontispiece (bound after the fourth leaf, as often), 2 folding plates; numerous engraved illustrations in the text, including many half- and full-page, and a portrait of Paaw on the verso of the title. Title printed in red and black, separate title-page to the second part. Contemporary vellum. Short tear at the fold in the frontispiece and one plate, tear across leaf Nn1 neatly repaired without loss, paper slightly browned, the vellum a little marked and soiled, but an excellent copy.

Provenance: John Barrymore's copy, signed by him and additionally annotated with bibliographic information "Engraved title in compartments by Hole / Bound by Riviere...." and with his bookplate. STC 14751; Pforzheimer 559; Greg I:163(d), 176(b), 181(b), 186(b)*, 216(b), 256(b), 304(b)*, 303(b), 296(b). Grolier 100 English . 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. This is Pforzheimer's preferred small-paper copy with the following points: "C" engraved title page; Every Man Out of his Humour title page: one of two states without border, with imprint: "London, Printed by William Stansby for John Smithwicke. [rule] M.DC.XVI."; with first issue of dedication leaf (G2), signed, with "By your true Honorer, Ben Jonsoif" and with other Pforzheimer points "found only in small-paper copies"; Cynthias Revells engraved title page, first (of two) Pforzheimer issues, with "Printed by W. Stansby"; Poetaster title page, first (of three) Pforzheimer issues, with "Printed by W. Stansby, for M. Lownes. 1616" and with all Quire Yy6 (525-40) small-paper points; last two pages of the Golden Age with song headed "Astraea" preceding that headed "Pallas"

        Stirpium Historia pemptades sex, sive libri XXX ...

      1616. Antverpiae, ex Officina Plantiniana, apud B. & I. Moretos, 1616. Folio (346 x 230mm). pp. (16), 872, (66), with fine engraved title and 1341 woodcuts of plants in the text. Contemporary blindpressed pigskin. "Best revised and enlarged edition." (Hunt 201). A fine and attractively bound copy, frontcover hinges splitting but firm. Dodoens was the first of the Great Flemish botanists and helped to forward the growing interest in classification which had begun with Bock's "Neu Kreuterbuch" in 1539. Dodonaeus graduated from the University of Louvain in 1535. After working in Malines as a physician he moved to Vienna to assume the post of personal physician to Emperor Maximilian II, later he moved to Prague when Rudolph II succeeded Maximilian. In 1582 Dodonaeus was appointed professor of botany at the University of Leiden. The above offered work is Dodoens last and most comprehensive botanical work, incorporating material from a number of his earlier books, including the "Cruydeboeck". It is of interest, that he made here an attempt to an explanation of the parts of the plants. Nissen BBI, 517..

        Das Schach- oder König-Spiel von Gustavo Seleno, In vier unterschiedene Bücher, mit besonderm Fleiß, gründlich und ordentlich abgefasset. Auch mit dienlichen Kupfern gezieret: Desgleichen vorhin nicht ausgangen. Diesem ist zu ende angefüget ein sehr altes Spiel, genandt Rhythmomachia.

      Leipzig Lorentz Kober 1616. Titelauflage der Erstausgabe von 1616 mit dem Druckfehlerverzeichnis auf der Rückseite von Seite 495. Mit 5 (von 7) ganzseitigen Titelkupfern, einem Druckvermerk in Kupfer sowie 28 ganzseitigen Kupfern, davon 2 Falttafeln, 45 Seiten mit Textkupfern sowie zahlreichen Zier- und Schlussstücken. Lipsiae (Leipzig), Gedruckt durch Lorentz Kober. Bey Henning Groß den Jüngern, zu finden, M.DC..Xvi, (1616). 4°, (ca. 26,2 mal 18,5 cm), mit handgeschriebenem Titelblatt (um 1830), 1 Leerseite, 10 Blätter, 495 S., Korrekturverzeichnis verso S. 495,1 Blatt mit Druckvermerk, Pappband mit grünem Rückenschildchen. Um 1830 neu gebunden. Das dabei verwendete Vorsatzpapier stammt vermutlich aus der Papiermühle Twiste und trägt einen achtstrahligen Stern mit Mittelkreis (Kristallstern) als Wasserzeichen, das Gegenzeichen die Buchstaben 'GH'. Dieser Kristallstern ist das Wappensymbol des ehemaligen Fürstentums Waldeck. Das Gegenzeichen, die Buchstaben 'GH', konnten nicht eindeutig zugeordnet werden. Die Angaben zum Wasserzeichen des Vorsatzpapiers stammen vom Deutschen Buch- und Schriftmuseum der Deutschen Nationalbibliothek Leipzig, Papierhistorische Sammlungen. Insgesamt gibt es 13 Seiten mit Marginalien von alter Hand - vermutlich eine Schrift aus dem 18. Jahrhundert. Die Anmerkungen beziehen sich jeweils auf die angegebenen Schachzüge und Stellungen, die offensichtlich nachgespielt wurden. Die Textabbildung auf S. 429 - den Schleich darstellend - ist hier auf dem Kopf stehend wiedergegeben. Erstausgabe des ersten Lehrbuches über Schach in deutscher Sprache. Es blieb für 200 Jahre bis zum Erscheinen der Werke von Allgaier und Bilguer das bedeutendste Schachbuch in Deutschland. Das Werk ist nicht nur eine Übersetzung des Werkes von Ruy Lopez de Segura, sondern auch eine Erweiterung. Interessant auch durch die alten handschriftlichen Anmerkungen, dessen Urheber wir nicht ermitteln konnten. Ein Buch mit Geschichte. Das Spiel Rhythmochia war ein mittelaterliches Zahlenspiel und wurde auch Philosophenspiel genannt. Es wurde bereits von John von Salisbury und Roger Bacon empfohlen. Einbandkanten berieben, papierbedingt gebräunt, Seiten etwas braunfleckig, sechs Blätter mit Einrissen, vereinzelt leicht fleckig, insgesamt jedoch ordentliches Exemplar; der fehlende Vortitel, der Hauptitel, die doppelblattgroße Abbildung - den Herzog beim Schachspielen zeigend - sowie die fünf fehlenden Seiten des Vorworts und die beschädigte Tabula synopsin liegen in Fotokopie bei. Sprache: deutsch.

        Dell'historia de i semplici aromati, et altre cose che vengono portate dall'Indie Orientali pertinenti all'uso della medicina di Don Garzia Dall'Horto... et due altri libri parimente di quelle cose che si portano dall'Indie Occidentali di Nicolo Monardes... tradotti... da Annibale Briganti...

      1616. Venezia, G. Salis, 1616. 8vo (160 x 110mm). pp. (32), 525, (1), with printer's device on title and numerous woodcuts in the text. Contemporary limp vellum. 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..

Die Kupferstecher Wolfgang Kilian, Johann Leyplod u.a. lieferten die zahlreichen Pflanzenillustrationen." Teitge, Kostbarkeiten der Deutschen Staatsbibliothek.
