        El passagero. Advertencias utilissimas a la vida humana

      Barcelona, Geronimo Margarit 1618 - 8º menor (14,2 x 19,8 cm). 6 h. inc. port., 370 fols. Grabadito xilográfico en portada. Pasta española del siglo XVIII, lomo liso, tejuelo rojo: suarez. el passagero. Segunda edición, publicada un año después que la princeps de Marid. En El Passagero, Suárez de Figueroa da inestimables informaciones sobre las costumbres de la España de su tiempo. Esta merecidamente considerada como obra maestra, escrita en diálogos, narra el viaje de un maestro en Artes y Teología, un militar, un orífice y un doctor –que debe representar al propio Figueroa– entre Madrid y Barcelona, camino de Italia. Los personajes dialogan sobre las comedias y los comediantes, la vida universitaria en Alcalá, las mujeres, el gobierno, la sociedad de entonces. No faltan las burlas, como era habitual en su tiempo, contra muchos ingenios de la época: Lope de Vega, Quevedo, Juan de Arguijo, Juan Ruiz de Alarcón, Cervantes. Hay estudios que afirman que fue Suarez de Figueroa quien escribió el Quijote apócrifo y no Avellaneda basándose en el análisis del léxico de El Quijote y de El Pasajero, donde queda suficientemente de manifiesto la personalidad del autor, su espíritu crítico respecto a la sociedad de su tiempo, las nada cordiales relaciones que mantuvo con sus colegas –en particular con Alarcón– y la antipatía que sentía hacia Cervantes. Ejemplar en buen estado. Palau, 323914; Salva, 2004 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Le Relationi Universali ... divise in sette parti...[with] Aggiunta alla quarta parte dell'Indie

      Venice: Alessandro de Vecchi, 1618, 1618. Small thick quarto, with 32 woodcuts in the "Aggiunta" section; some marginal repairs in the "Aggiunta" and two of the leaves crudely coloured, inkstains to another; lacking eight text leaves in the main work and four leaves of index, but the "Aggiunta" section complete; old quarter vellum. With the extraordinary woodcuts of "prodigies" of the southern world. First of two editions, both very rare. This wonderful book, printed early in the seventeenth century, contains a remarkable series of woodcuts actually prepared in the sixteenth century but not then published. Wormholes in the actual woodblocks that show clearly in the printing suggest that the blocks lay idle for a substantial time. These haunting images, partly the work of the artist Hans Burgkmair, represent the general European perception of the mysteries of the undiscovered worlds to the east and south. Woodcuts of the creatures likely to be found inhabiting these lands are accompanied by others of actual native peoples encountered on a real voyage, without much distinction being drawn between real and imaginary. These weird imaginings include numerous remarkable evolutionary fantasies such as the skiapod whose immense foot has developed to shield him from the fierce sun, and numerous permutations of man-beast combinations.The eighth part of this posthumous edition of Botero's chronicle contains these thirty-two sixteenth-century woodcuts, which depict "Monsters and Customs of the Indies, with their King including lively illustrations of them". Fifteen cuts portray monsters or "Prodigies", while seventeen illustrate actual natives of India, Africa and Arabia. This latter part of the series represents the first serious study of African and Oriental native life and dress for publication in a European travel book.Of this last group, eight are from a larger block of 1508, which formed a panorama by Burgkmair known as 'The Procession of the King of Cochin'. The panorama was to have illustrated an account of a voyage to India undertaken by the German merchant, Balthasar Springer, on a Portuguese vessel in 1505-6. Springer's account was never published and no complete impression of the block appears to be known.Some of these remarkable images are familiar from the dramatic reproductions in the 1988 "Terra Australis" exhibition. As Eisler remarked in the catalogue (Terra Australis, fig. 1, p. 16), the woodblocks represent "one of the earliest and most dramatic studies of exotic people from the tropical regions visited by the Portuguese". They were the immediate source for the extraordinary tapestry 'Triumph of the King of Cochin' by the Arras workshop, now in the Musée des Arts Africains et Océaniens Terra Australis, no. 2).Botero's universal geography was first printed in Rome in 1591, without the eighth part. Published in many editions and translations, it has always been highly regarded. Only in the two Vecchi editions of 1618 and 1622-3 is the Aggiunta found with it; in fact, when Oakeshott first discovered a copy with the Burgkmair cuts he thought it to be unique. This copy, as noted above, lacks a number of leaves in the main work but the Aggiunta section, a separate work that sometimes exists as a stand-alone volume, is complete.

        The History of Tithes

      London, 1618. Leather Bound. Fair/No Jacket. xxii, 491 p. 15 cm. Half leather, some scuffs to cloth, rubbing to edges. Title-page darkened, title written on fore-edge, ink mark on p. 225, repair to p. 287, small spots. Extended title reads: "That is, The Practice of Payment of them. The Positive Laws made for them. The Opinions touching the Right of them. A Review of it Is also annext, which both Confirmes it and directs in the Use of it." History of Tithes is a seminal work in the separation of church and state. The basic precept of the text is that tithing, or giving 10 percent of one's income to the church, is a law of man and not a law of God. As the argument proceeds, it goes further to infer the division of state and church, and the absurdity of the divine right of kings. Selden's conclusions were crucial and controversial. Milton called Selden "the chief of learned men reputed in this Land." He was born in 1584, the son of a poor minstrel father, who was lucky enough to marry Selden's rich mother. She was an only child, and therefore heir of her father's estate. Mr. Selden and his family where thus lifted out of poverty, so much so that they could send their only son John to university. John Selden went to Oxford and was called to the bar, and then proceeded to establish himself as an academic, and one of Europe's leading scholars on Asian history. His earliest work was a study of Syrian mythology in the Bible, De dis Syris, a treatise finished in 1605 and published in 1617. He was then elected to Parliament. King James I imprisoned Selden in the Tower of London for five weeks for treason, when Selden professed that Parliament should pay no heed to the Crown. He defended the independence of Parliament, citing the existence of similar political constructs in pre-monarchist Anglo-Saxon traditions. In essence, he was imprisoned for demanding that the people have control of the government instead of the monarchy. Selden was an early voice of democracy. In 1623 he was again imprisoned for having Parliament pass a law that prohibited a lucrative tax for the monarchy. Selden was known for his persuasive and candorous manner of speech, which made him popular with those he spoke for, but much hated by his opponents. Selden died in London on November 30, 1654. Selden's work as an intellectual laid the groundwork for the 17th century revolution against the power of the Crown. Ironically, in his later career he was record keeper for the Tower of London, where he had been imprisoned. Selden continued to make his mark after his death. The posthumous book "Table Talk" was a survey of Selden's witty conversations with famous friends such as poet Ben Jonson. As well, his emphasis on the importance of history lives on through the Selden Society, a group that promotes the study of English legal history.

        King Louis XIII Asks the Pope to Exempt the Benedictine Maurist Order from Taxation The request was made on the election of a new Chief Abbott

      - King Louis XIII Asks the Pope to Exempt the Benedictine Maurist Order from Taxation The request was made on the election of a new Chief Abbott. Benedictine monks in France instituted reforms in Paris and then St-Augustin de Limoges in the second decade of the 17th century, requiring that those who desired to embrace the monastic life spend one year as postulants, a second as novices, and then, when they had completed the five yearsÕ course of philosophy and theology, spend a year of contemplation before they were admitted to the priesthood. The discipline was marked by a return to the strict rules of St. Benedict. All monks labored with their hands, all abstained from eating meat, all embraced poverty; the Divine Office was recited at the canonical hours with great solemnity, silence was observed for many hours, and there were regular times for private prayer and meditation. In 1618, it was decided that a congregation independent of Rome should be organized for the reformed houses in France, having its superior residing within that kingdom. This proposal was supported by Louis XIII as well as by Cardinal Richelieu, and letters patent were granted by the King. The PopeÕs approval followed. The new organization was named the Congregation of St-Maur, or Maurists. Dom Maur Dupont was elected head in 1627. In 1629, he sought to step down, which meant that an election would have to be held for his successor. Letter Signed in French, Fountainbleau, September 6, 1629, to Cardinal Guido Bentivoglio, who was entrusted by King Louis XIII with the management of French affairs at the papal court, and whom he addresses as Òmy cousin the Cardinal Bentivoglio, Protector of the Affairs of France at the court of Rome.Ó ÒHaving by my letters patent of the month of January 1627, recorded in my Grand Council, bestowed on Dom Maur Dupont the position of Abbot to the monks of the Abby of St. Augustin near my town of Limoges.and the congregation of St. Maur, and having arrived at the departure of the said Dupont, Abbot - the said position being up till now elective as it has been by virtue of the concord made between the Holy See and this Crown - and that the said election might be made by the general chapter of the monks of the said congregation for a person professed and nourished in reform and regularity and of no other, I write you this letter to tell you that I would have great pleasure if you would ask the Pope in my name for confirmation of the right to hold the election that I accorded to the monks, without obliging them to pay the rights of annata [tithes of office] because of the poverty and destitution of the said abbey, in which you would make me happy.Ó Dom Gregorian Tarisse was elected as DupontÕs successor and given the title of Superior-General, the first to hold that office. He was an important leader and strictly maintained the Maurists as an all-French order. When his years as leader ended, the group included over 80 monasteries. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Epitome Astronomiae Copernicae. I-III (all).

      1618, 1622, 1621. 8vo. All three parts bound uncut in a nice contemporary full vellum binding. In astonishingly fine condition! Contemporary annotations in a very neat hand throughout. There is a little bit of occasional light browning, mostly to the second part (i.e. Book IV). Numerous woodcut illustrations throughout.Fully complete (with the plate, dedication, errata, blanks, etc. - conforming exactly to the Caspar collation), with no flaws of any kind (apart from the occasional minor browning), not washed, or tampered with in any way. An absolutely excellent copy of a highly important and beautiful work.. SCARCE FIRST EDITION OF THE WORK THAT FOUNDED THE SCIENCE OF HEAVEN MECHANICS. IT IS IN THIS WORK THAT KEPLER GENIOUSLY GIVES TO THEORETICAL ASTRONOMY ITS NEW FORM, AND THE BOOK, THE "SUMMA ASTRONOMIA", IN ITS TIME WAS CONSIDERED "THE BIBLE OF NATURE". The second part of the work is in the title-issue - almost no copies of the original title-page for this part are known; as Caspar explains, "almost all copies of Lib. IV. of the "Epitome" belong to the title-issue from the year 1622" (see further explanation below). Immediately after having published his "Astronomia Nova" in 1609, Kepler decided to create a work that was to summarize all astronomical knowledge, a "summa astronomia", that showed the astronomical world the way that he had built it through his amazing discoveries, based on Copernican teachings. He wanted to make the new form that he had given to astronomy widely known, and he wanted to spread the work and his science as widely as possible. Thus, he set out to create a revolutionizing work that was to be more easily understood, more all-encompassing, cheaper, and easier to get hold of than his earlier works. He succeeded in the first two criteria, but not the last two. First of all, the difficult political conditions and the fact that he had to move to Linz proved primary obstacles. Second, after having finished the manuscript, in the spring of 1615, and after having made arrangements with the Augsburg publisher, Hans Crüger, problems arose between him and the printer Joh. Plank, who at that time had also moved to Linz. Crüger refused to have the work printed by Plank, which meant, first, that Kepler had to pay for the printing himself, and second, that instead of the proof sheets appearing in May 1616, the first part was not printed until the late spring of 1617. Apart from that, Kepler, who in the meantime had had to spend time at court in Prague, was not at all satisfied with the printing (the typography, printing errors, many mis-paginations, etc.), and it turned out that the work ended up being extremely expensive and not being printed in a large number, exactly the opposite of what he had wanted.(Own translation from Caspar, 55:) "apart from the usual expositions, in his spherical astronomy, Kepler discusses a number of questions that transcend the formal character of this science. Primarily, it is the movement of the earth in Copernican sense that he most forcibly defends with new arguments. When he compares it with the movement of a gyroscope, one here immediately sees the new spirit that speaks through him..." In the dedication he speaks about the "hypothesis of Copernicus", and "this standing up for Copernicus was the reason why this I. part of the Epitome already in the year 1619, before the appearance of the two other parts, was forbidden by the Holy Offizium on Rome... If, in the I. Part of his Epitome, Kepler shows himself as the eager advocate of Copernican teachings, so, in both of the following parts (Nr. 63 and 66), the creating genious commences the plan that casts theoretical astronomy in entirely new forms and founds a new science, the heaven mechanics. The new comprehension of the movements of the "travelling star" that came as a breakthrough in heavy rings in the Astronomia Nova and replaced kinematics with dynamics, is here [in the Epitome] explained in more clear and straightforward terms (whereas in the Stella Nova the exposition had been difficult to understand) and elaborated and rounded off by realizations and results later achieved." Although there are mistakes and errors in the present work, in the Epitome, Kepler "has still paved the way for his science, the path through which posterity continued and reached the greatest results, and the planetary laws that his textbook (i.e. the Epitome) sets forth, has provided the basis, for all times, for astronomical calculation within the solar system...". The book is in 8vo and thus in format the smallest that Kepler ever published, but in extent it is by far his largest and most comprehensive work, with its small types and more than 900 pages. As mentioned above, the second part of the work is in the title-issue, as almost always: The second part, constituting book IV, was printed in Linz in the summer of 1620, but several problems occurred immediately hereafter. The publisher Crüger caused Kepler problems again, as he had done with the first part, for which he had opposed the costs and the printer. The printing of the second part was finished in August, but immediately hereafter, just before the printing of the third and final part was to take place, Kepler had to return to his home-town due to bad news (of legal character) concerning his mother. He did not return to Linz until November 1621. When he left for Schwaben, he brought 17 "akefaloi"-copies with him, i.e. copies without title-page and preface. This title-quire for the second part was printed by Cellius in Tübingen, whom he had previously given a copy of Book IV, in the winter of 1620/21 and was sent to Kepler afterwards. In the fall of 1621 all the other copies of the second part (i.e. all, apart from those that Kepler had taken with him) were sent from Linz to Frankfurt, where Tampach was taking care of the printing of the final third part, and here the title-quire for the second part received the new title with the year 1622, as we know it in almost all surviving copies. "The reason why this happened is presumably the fact that Tampach wanted to have the imprint "impensis G. Tampachii" on the title-page; apparently he had afterwards taken part in the work financially." (Caspar 63).). A second edition appeared in 1635 (several of the copies that have been for sale have the second part, not in the title-issue as the present, but in the second edition from 1635, e.g. the Macclesfield-copy).Caspar, Bibliographia Kepleriana, Nr.: 55, 63, 66.There are a few auction records for this work, and none of these copies are in a condition comparable to this

        Rimas castellanas a D. Juan Andres Hurtado de Mendoça, Marques de Cañete.

      en casa de la viuda de Alonso Martín,, Madrid: 1618 - Portada grabada, 8 hojas, 136 folios. Encuadernación original en pergamino con el título rotulado en el lomo. Cortes tintados. Conserva las correíllas y uno de los cierres. En el reverso de la portada, verso de +1 y reverso de R8 hay un pequeño sello de muy antiguo. Ejemplar perfecto. Palau 286222. Los epigramas de Salas Barbadillo aparecieron en cuatro series que van desde 1614 a 1635. El autor los intercaló masivamente en El Caballero Puntual y en El sagaz Estadio, y también los reunió en dos colecciones de poemas: Rimas Castellanas y El Ramillete, que forma parte de Coronas del Parnaso (1635). Es obvio que el orden cronológico de composición tiene poco que ver con el orden de publicación, ya que, por ejemplo, casi la mitad de los epigramas de El Caballero Puntual (1614) se repiten en Rimas Castellanas (1618), colección que estaba lista para la imprenta antes de El Caballero Puntual. Podemos pensar que la mayoría de dichos epigramas se compusieron por los años 1610-1615 y que Salas los publicó cuando pudo, no vacilando en repetir algunos de ellos en dos obras diferentes.

      Arnheim: Jan Jansen, 1618.. [38]pp. plus nine folding plates. Small quarto. New vellum. One plate with an older tissue repair on verso. Minor toning. Very good. First German edition, and second overall, of the chronicle of this major voyage, an important step in the rise of the Dutch seaborne empire. Undertaken in 1615 and lasting until 1617, this important expedition was the fourth complete circumnavigation, after Magellan in 1519, Drake in 1577, and Cavendish shortly thereafter. The expedition was the first to go visit Cape Horn, naming Cape after the Dutch town of Hoorn, whose aggressive traders sponsored the voyage. In addition, the expedition explored the Pacific coast of South America, pursued the search for Terra Australis, and proved that Tierra del Fuego was not an island. The plates show maps of the route, as well as a view of Cocos Island, Tierra del Fuego, an Indian sailing canoe, a meeting of the Indian kings, and a plate of Porto Desire which shows several species of animal. Translated from Schouten's JOURNAL OFTE BESCHREYVINGHE... published the same year in Amsterdam, this edition used the same plates to print the map and illustrations.

V.2).Von 1559 bis 1574 erschien in Basel die "Ecclesiastica historia", eine von Matthias Flacius angeregte und geleitete Gemeinschaftsarbeit mehrerer lutherischer Theologen, den sog. "Magdeburger Centurien". Dieses einzige, größere, auf Quellenforschungen beruhende kirchengeschichtliche Werk des Protestantismus der Reformationszeit behandelt - nach Jahrhunderten (Centurien) eingeteilt - die Kirchengeschichte bis zum Ende des 13. Jahrhunderts. Die Bearbeiter der "Magdeburger Centurien" suchen zu beweisen, daß die Papstkirche im Lauf der Jahrhunderte immer mehr von der ursprünglichen Reinheit und Einfalt der apostolischen Kirche abgefallen sei und die Reformationskirche, die sich auf viele "testes veritatis" der früheren Jahrhunderte berufen könne, keine Neuerung sei (Vgl. dazu Bautz II, 43-48). Zur Widerlegung der protestantischen Magdeburger Centuriatoren veröffentlichte La Bigne in seiner "Bibliotheca veterum patrum" über 200 Werke der Kirchenväter in systematischer Ordnung, um den Nachweis zu erbringen, daß die katholische Kirche nie von der Lehre und der Verfassung der Alten Kirche abgewichen sei. Ein Unternehmen, an das sich bisher noch keiner gewagt hatte. Die Bibliotheca erschien erstmals von 1575-79 in 9 Bänden, wurde wiederholt nachgedruckt und vermehrt, und erreichte in der Ausgabe von Lyon (1677) bereits 27 Bände. Vorliegende Ausgabe umfasste 15 (in 19) Bände (die alle im gleichen Jahr gedruckt wurden) und wurde 1622 um einen Indexband erweitert. Die beiden Teile enthalten Werke u.a. von Filastrius v. Brescia, Didymus dem Blinden, Apollinaris von Laodicea, Philon v. Karpasia, Chrysologus Petrus u. Sixtus III. Die Bände stammen aus dem aufgelassenen Grazer Karmeliterkloster St. Joseph. LA BIGNE (auch Binius od. Bignaeus) Marguerin de (1546 od. 47 - 1589 od. 90); Theologe u. Patrologe. L.B. entstammte einer alten normannischen Adelsfamilie. Nach dem Erwerb des Lizentiats der Theologie an der Universität Caen bekleidete er dort das Amt des Rektors. Auf der Sorbonne setzte er seine Studien fort und wurde zum Doktor der Theologie promoviert. Die Herausgabe der "Bibliotheca veterum patrum" brachte ihm eine Domherrenstelle in Bayeux ein. Sein persönliches kirchenpolitisches Engagement für die Rechte seines Stiftes führte zum Konflikt mit seinem Bischof und zu L.B.s Resignation in Bayeux. Kurz darauf verstarb er in Paris.

Primera edición. Obra muy importante para la historia de las genealogías de la nobleza de Castilla y León.Pedro de Salazar y Mendoza (1549-1629). Nace y muere en Toledo. Era tataranieto del Gran Cardenal Mendoza por via de su tercer hijo Juan Hurtado de Mendoza, casado en segundas nupcias con Inés de Orozco y ambos padres de Úrsula de Mendoza, que se casó con el toledano Pedro de Salazar quienes tuvieron (entre otros) a Fernando de Salazar y Mendoza (hidalgo pobre) el cual se casó con Catalina de Quintanilla y fueron los padres de Pedro. Estas noticias genealógicas las proporciona el propio Pedro, quien fue considerado un experto genealogista además de biógrafo y cronista. Dedicado a la religión por sus pocos bienes, Pedro estudió en Salamanca, fue administrador del Hospital de San Juan y en 1614 canónigo penitenciario de la Catedral de Toledo. Escribió "Crónica del Gran Cardenal de España", "Crónica de los Ponce de León" y "Origen de las Dignidades Seglares de Castilla y León". Fue acusado de "linajudo", es decir de traficar con las ascendencias ajenas (necesarias por ejemplo en los expedientes de limpieza de sangre) alterando linajes y genealogías de acuerdo a sus deseos o al dinero de sus patronos. Pedro fue protector y amigo de El Greco, a quién encargó muchas pinturas para Toledo.

        Lugdonum (Lyon, France)

      Cologne: 1572-1618 - Frans Hogenberg (1535-1590) “Lugdonum” (Lyon, France) From Civitates orbis terrarum Cologne: 1572-1618 Hand-colored copperplate engraving with beautiful original color Paper size: 16 ½” x 20 1/2" Condition: 4 inch repaired tear in bottom left quadrant with repaired one inch area of paper loss at the bottom of repaired tear at bottom left paper edge; center binding crease has been repaired; discoloration along paper edges, overall in good condition. The views from George Braun and Frans Hogenberg’s landmark Civitates orbis terrarum, completed in Cologne between 1572 and 1618, are among the most beautiful and important images of Renaissance cities. The Civitates was the first extensive series of town views that treated its subject matter in an accurate and meaningful way. Earlier collections of town views were far more limited in scope, and often made no real attempt to render the subject city with any degree of realism being simply a record of the existence of a town. Certainly the striking beauty and accuracy of Braun and Hogenberg’s production was entirely unprecedented. Earlier collections contained no more than a handful of views, usually only of the more important cities, while the Civitates contained literally hundreds of views, including many of smaller towns for which no earlier views are known. Even for the larger, important cities, the Civitates is of the utmost importance to the history of their topography.

Roman letter. small woodcut printer's device on t-p repeated in a larger format on recto of last, charming historiated woodcut initials, woodcut and typographical headpieces, fldg. engraved plate of a globe, eighteenth century printed bookseller's label from Rouen on pastedown. Light age yellowing, minor waterstain to lower blank margin in places. A very good, clean copy, in slightly later French speckled calf, large crowned monogram gilt at centers of covers, spine with raised bands richly gilt in compartments, expertly remounted, corners restored, all edges speckled red. Rare first and only edition of this curious astrological work which Saulnier describes in his prefatory epistle, his dedication to Mademoiselle Louise d'Anssienville, as an epitome in imitation of Livy and Valerius Maximus. The work is a description of the globe and heavens so as to better understand divination, in other words a description for the purposes of astrology in the guise of a cosmology. "Nous commencerons par le traictŽ de la Sphere, comme estant la plus necessaire, pour en apres entendre mieux le peu que nous dirons de ce qu'avons promis" The work is divided into three chapters, the first and longest, entitled 'Traicte de L'Astrologie Naturelle' starts with a description of the size of the heavens and then describes the major constellations and the origins of their denomination. He then describes the "Cercles de la shpere" concentrating on the Zodiac and follows with a "Theorie des Planettes" and a description of the nature of the zodiac and planets. The second chapter is a description of the earth (including a list of the principal provinces of the New World) and its four elements fire, water, air and the earth. There is an interesting section on tides and the effects the moon has on the earth and a description of each of the parts of the world and its oceans. He also includes a section on the rising and falling of astrological signs. The last and most curious chapter is a description of 'Time and the Calendar', and the division of time into days months and years. He finishes with a series of predictions for the weather for each year from 1619 to 1643 based on his description of the solar cycle, and gives a table of the calendar from which he makes these predictions. We have been unable to discover the owner of the monogram on both covers. A very good copy of this most interesting and rare work. BM STC Fr. C17 S307. Caillet 9916.

        Nova Illustrissimi Principatus Pomeraniae Descripto

      Amsterdam: Philipp II, Duke of Pomarania, 1618. Large engraved wall-map in 12 engraved mapsheets, each sheet approx. 420 x 540mm., in original outline colour. THE RAREST AND MOST IMPORTANT EARLY MAP OF POMERANIA is this majestic twelve sheet wall map published in 1618. It was the work of Professor Eilhard Lubben of Rostock University who had been ordered in 1610 to create the map by Phillipp II, Duke of Pomerania, who wanted a large-scale map that would be a comprehensive geopgraphy and history of the duchy. Professor Lubben spent 1611 and 1612 traveling throughout the country measuring hundreds of angles and distances, but had little geographical information to guide him. The only earlier map of Pomerania was a small work by Peter Artopaus (later used by Munster and Ortelius), though Lubben himself had also mapped the island of Rugen on the Pomaranian coast in 1609. After the map had been completed, the copperplates were decorated with noble arms, a genealogical tree, portraits (including a prominent engraving of Philip II), and forty-six town views (many of these towns are shown here for the first time). It was at last completed in 1618 in the Netherlands by Nicolaes Van Geelkercken, but very few copies were actually printed. Some were presented to the Pomeranian court, but the shortage of paper and the thirty years war prevented the printing of additional copies. Hence, no example from that 1618 printing has survived. Geelkerken's copperplates were discovered in the eighteenth century in Straisund (a town featured in a vignette on the map), and in 1757 the map was reissued, but, as Scharfe notes "again only a small number of copies were printed and so this edition is a very rare object today". Lubben's success won him accolades from the great Dutch mapmakers who used his map as a source. It was the model for virtually all atlas maps of Pomerania of the seventeenth century, including those of Blaeu and Janssonius, and Hondius (who probably printed this map) dedicated his famous wall map of Asia to Lubben: see Schilder, Monumenta Cartographica Neerlandica VI,pp. 150-151. Lubben's Pomerania remained the only map of consequence of the region from its inception in 1618 until the Prussian topographical survey of the eighteenth century. It is a landmark of cartography in the great Dutch tradition and known in only a handful of copies. This may be the finest exampe to have survived.
