[LEXICOGRAPHY] / HENISCH, Georg
Augsburg: David Franc, 1616. Hardcover. Near Fine. Folio [33.75 x 22.25 cm]. (430) ff., the last blank and integral, erroneously paginated in two columns per page up to 1875, with woodcut title showing portraits of the electors of and ecclesiastical officers of the Holy Roman Empire as well as a view of Augsburg. Bound in full contemporary vellum over boards with stamped trim and emblem on both covers, manuscript title on spine. Light spotting on title page mainly confined to margins and two printing flaws slightly affecting the view of Augsburg at the foot of the page, otherwise a clean, fresh, and very genuine copy, excellent. Extremely rare first and only edition of this polyglot dictionary aimed at a vernacular reader, by far the most ambitious dictionary of the German language to date and a notable attempt to organize and present both lexicographical and cultural information in an encyclopedic form. Henisch's dictionary was "a remarkable attempt to put Gessner's vision into action. He and Gessner were seeing a dictionary both as a comprehensive repository of culture, and as a comprehensive account of things. In the integration of popular wisdom into a dictionary to make it a truly representational cultural record, Hensich would have no rivals until the great national dictionaries of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries" - Considine, Dictionaries in Early Modern Europe: Lexicography and the Making of Heritage, p. 138. Henisch's Teutsche Sprach und Weissheit was the first polyglot dictionary to organize words alphabetically by their German form, stressing t … [Click Below for Full Description]

(Homer) Chapman George, translator
London: Printed for Nathaniell Butter, [1616]. 2 volumes in one. The Rare and True First Edition of the two books, issued together here. This copy highly unusual in that it retains the original ILIADS title page, and with preliminary blank as called for. Engraved general title-page and engraved title by William Hole, portrait of Chapman on verso, engraved dedication to Prince Henry. Folio, in a very handsome binding of full antique calf, spine elaborately gilt in six compartments, one with a red morocco label lettered in gilt. A fine, unwashed copy in antique binding with the spine refurbished to style, unpressed and unwashed, the text complete including the full 1611 ILIADS and the complete ODYSSEYS. A VERY RARE AND COMPLETE COPY OF THIS GREAT TEXT WITH THE THE FIRST EDITION ILIAD TITLE RETAINED, RARE THUS. The final and most complete state of “Chapman’s Homer.” It took Chapman 25 years to finish his master translation, meanwhile it was published in segments as he completed them. Seven books of the ILIADS (1-2 and 7-11) first appear in quarto in 1598, then books 1-12 in folio in 1609, and finally all 24 in 1611. Books 1-12 of the ODYSSES were first printed in c.1614 and then reissued with books 13-24 in 1615. Homer’s hymns and verses were separately published, c.1624 as was the BATRACHOMYOMACHIA. As the translation progressed, these works were also published together, so the ILIADS could be found alone, with the first 12 books of the ODYSSES, with the complete ODYSSES and finally with the ILIADS, ODYSSES and CROWNE of minor poems all together.

PAOLI (Giovanni Antonio de)]
In Siena Appresso gli Heredi de Matteor Florini, 1616. Small 4to, 206 x 140 mms., 40 leaves with the wood-engraved images of 155 Roman emperors, in double columns, engraved vignette on title-page, fore-margin and lower margin of last leaf slightly defective with loss of four letters, but a very good copy, bound in full hard-grain brown morocco by The Club Bindery circa 1900, with gilt dentelles, gilt spine, and the small rectangular red morocco bookplate of Robert Hoe III (1839 - 1909), noted collector and first president of The Grolier Club. Paoli's dates are given in some sources as 1599 - 1630, and the earliest edition of this book that I have traced was published in 1606, which would make him rather precocious. The work was frequently reprinted and was translated into English in 1636, probably by Robert Basset, though the translation is also attributed to Richard Braithwait. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Giacomo LAURO (1561-1645/50)
Bulino, 1616. Esemplare nel terzo stato di tre edito da Sebastiano Fulcari. Magnifica prova, impresa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata al rame o con margini, in ottimo stato di conservazione. La prima edizione di questa serie di carte di gusto prettamente devozionale si deve a Giovanni Battista Cavalieri, che la incise nel 1567, ispirandosi ai cicli agiografici scolpiti sul rivestimento marmoreo della Santa Casa, alla quale seguirono altre opere derivate dalla Origine et Traslazione della Chiesa di Santa Maria di Loreto del 1573 di Claudio Duchetti. La carta mostra le varie tappe del volo della Santa Casa sorretta dagli Angeli. Molti personaggi animano la scena, sono rappresentati pellegrini, viandanti, alcuni fedeli inginocchiati in adorazione, e banditi. In basso una iscrizione racconta gli avvenimenti, che hanno condotto la Casa di Maria dalla Palestina a Loreto. Al centro in alto è raffigurata la Vergine con il bambino benedicente, mentre a destra in un riquadro la Vergine tra due lampade pendenti e due angeli che reggono un cero, al di sotto della sua immagine il testo delle litanie Lauretane, tutto intorno una serie di medaglioni dove sono raffigurati alcuni miracoli ottenuti mediante la sua intercessione, più in basso la dedica di Sebastiano Fulcari alla principessa Doria Pamphili infine la mappa con il tragitto che secondo la tradizione fece la Santa casa, dalla Palestina a Tersatto presso Fiume e poi a Loreto. Di questa carta esistono due edizioni precedenti entrambe di Jacopo Lauro, la prima stampata nel 1616, identica con la sola differenza della dedica e dello st … [Click Below for Full Description]

Edizione veneziana di inizio Seicento del volgarizzamento, compiuto da Mambrino Roseo da Fabriano, della Silva de varia lection, zibaldone di varia erudizione venente a formare una sorta di enciclopedia rinascimentale in cui si discorre degli argomenti più eterogenei, dalla storia alla scienza alla geografia (numerosi gli accenni a territori del continente americano: Florida, Cuba, Yucatan, Venezuela, ecc). L'opera, pubblicata primamente nel 1542 e simile nella struttura alle "Notti Attiche" di Gellio, è una delle prime ad esporre i nuovi ritrovati della scienza rinascimentale, seppure in forma del tutto asistematica e farraginosa, ad un pubblico di tipo "popolare" e non specialistico.

ORTA, GARCIA DA & MONARDES, N.
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.

DODONAEUS, R.
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.

Graesse I, 249. Brunet I, 545. European Americana: 516/4. Tchemerzine I, 164. Picot: Catalogue bibliothque Rothschild, 2086. Backer III, 595. Theodore Agrippa D'Aubigne (1552-1630) "is the most enduring of late-sixteenth-century Huguenot authors. Of all witnesses of his age, he most directly and thoroughly addresses the violence of the Wars of Religion. The psychological and social impact of these conflicts are depicted in d'Aubign's epic, Les Tragiques (1616, The Tragic Ones), and in his historical work, L'Histoire universelle (1616-1620), " (Long, Kathleen P. "Theodore Agrippa d'Aubigne." Sixteenth-Century French Writers, in DLB). The purpose of L'Histoire universelle was to present the history of the second half of the sixteenth century, though d'Aubign reaches back to the eleventh century in order for posterity to know ?our history from us.?. The Synod of Gap authorized d'Aubign's historical project, directing Protestant churches in France to send all information they gathered to d'Aubign. But despite the official sanction, ?the strength of L'Histoire universelle lies in the detailed accounts of battles d'Aubign saw as an eyewitness or heard about from friends or cohorts.? The first edition of L'Histoire universelle, published in three volumes between 1616 and 1620, covers the period from the birth of Henri de Navarre in 1553 to th … [Click Below for Full Description]

Genomgående med fuktränder och spridda småfläckar, främst i marginalerna. Några maskhål mot slutet. Sidorna 37-44 är delvis loss. Med gamla ägaranteckningar på för- och eftersättsbladen respektive titelbladet. Trevligt ex. Collijn Sveriges bibliografi 1600-talet 335. E-arket har satts slarvigt och arksignerats fel vilket gör att pagineringen på s. 66-79 är mycket oregelbunden. Det spanska originalet "Reloj de principes" utkom 1529. Författaren var bl.a. hovpredikant och rikshistoriograf hos Karl V. Boken var, enligt Henrik Schück i "Den svenska förlagsbokhandelns historia", "en av tidens mest populära 'umgängesskolor' och hade förmodligen god åtgång." Den utkom i flera upplagor på spanska och översattes redan under 1500-talet till flera andra europeiska språk. Ericus Schroderus var lärare, tillsammans med brodern Johan Skytte, i läsning och skrivning åt prins Karl Filip och utsågs 1612 till korrektor över kronans tryck med tillägget att han skulle låta översätta sådant som kunde anses nödvändigt. Tyngdpunkten av dessa arbeten låg naturligt nog på furstespeglar och sedelärande berättelser. Schroderus agerade själv förläggare för flera av böckerna med hjälp av frikostiga anslag från statskassan, genom den s.k. "bibeltryckstunnan".

SCHWENTER, Daniel.
First complete edition and the first edition of the fourth part (the first part was published in 1616, the first three parts together in 1618). The first book is a treatise on general mathematics and the principles of geometry. The second deals entirely with techniques of surveying. The third part describes a surveying instrument (the 'mensula praetoriana') invented by the scientific instrument maker Johann Praetorius (Richter) and its application. The fourth part is in fact a German translation of Curzio Casati's 'Geometricum problema' (1602). He shows himself to be particularly well acquainted with the contemporary Italian mathematical literature, giving in particular a resumé of some of the work of Pietro Antonio Cataldi: "The use of limited continued fractions in the expression of a relationship between large numbers is found in the 'Geometria practica' of Daniel Schweneter (1627), published soon after Cataldi's death." (DSB, III, p.128). Cantor, Vorlesungen II, p.666-70; Zeitlinger/Sotheran, 2nd suppl, 2421; Poggendorff II 878.. Four parts in one volume. 4to: 200 x 154 mm. Contemporary vellum.

Pagination: [16], 439, 444-452, [8], 453-645, [1] pp. Contemporary English ivory vellum, triple blind fillets around sides, smooth spine edges stained red. From the now-defunct Hartford Theological Institute with blind stamps. This is the first edition printed in England. Scarce: ours is apparently the only copy in the market. 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.

Slight worming in 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. … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bringer's woodcut printer's device to each title of female muse holding dove with motto, “Et simplices, sicut estote prudentes, sicut serpents. ” Printed marginalia.

Early reference in Latin to front-free endpaper. The Annales is a Frankfurt reprint of the London edition of 1615; the Britannia, is the second printing in Frankfurt of the Third Edition (London: 1590). Camden's intention with the Annales was to provide a biography of Elizabeth and a chronicle history of the Elizabethan state, with a special emphasis on foreign affairs. The Annales are coupled with here Camden's famed work on Britain, aptly Britannia, intended principally to describe Britain as a province of the Roman Empire (hence the simple classical title). It was aimed at a classically educated international audience and until 1610 circulated only in Latin. Camden's work on the Annales first begun in the 1580's until he put the work aside after Elizabeth's death in hopes that someone else better suited to the job would take it on, “…by 1608 [when he began the work again] the task seemed inescapab … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

Joints split at spine ends, boards soiled and edge worn; small worm hole in front board of Vol. I, writing verso of free front endpapers; Vol. III tear to free rear endpapers. 4to. Theodore Agrippa D'Aubigne (1552-1630) "is the most enduring of late-sixteenth-century Huguenot authors. Of all witnesses of his age, he most directly and thoroughly addresses the violence of the Wars of Religion. The psychological and social impact of these conflicts are depicted in d'Aubigné's epic, Les Tragiques (1616, The Tragic Ones), and in his historical work, L'Histoire universelle (1616-1620)," (Long, Kathleen P. "Theodore Agrippa d'Aubigne." Sixteenth-Century French Writers, in DLB). The purpose of L'Histoire universelle was to present the history of the second half of the sixteenth century, though d'Aubigné reaches back to the eleventh century in order for posterity to know ?our history from us.?. The Synod of Gap authorized d'Aubigné's historical project, directing Protestant churches in France to send all information they gathered to d'Aubigné. But despite the official sanction, ?the strength of L'Histoire universelle lies in the detailed accounts of battles d'Aubigné saw as an eyewitness or heard about from friends or cohorts.? The first edition of L'Histoire universelle, published in three volumes between 1616 and 1620, covers the period from the b … [Click Below for Full Description]
