        OOST ENDE WEST-INDISCHE SPIEGHEL WAER IN BESCHREVEN WERDEN DE TWEELAETSTE NAVIGATIENGHEDAEN INDE JAEREN 1614, 1615, 1616, 617, ENDE 1618

      Zutphen, 1621. Small oblong quarto. 19th century vellum. Very minor soiling and toning. Very good. A fundamentally important record of Dutch circumnavigation, military activity, and trade rivalry in the early 17th century, this narrative was first published in Leyden in 1619 and later published in French and the present Dutch, in 1621. It is appropriate that this volume contains the accounts of both Joris Van Spilbergen and Jacob Le Maire's voyages, since the two were intertwined. Van Spilbergen undertook his voyage on behalf of the Dutch East India Company (VOC). Le Maire's father, Isaac, had had a falling out with the VOC in 1605. He outfitted his own vessel for a circumnavigation, captained by his son, Jacob, and by Willem Corneliszoon Schouten, in order to lessen the VOC's trade monopoly. The first part of this volume contains the account of Spilbergen's circumnavigation, while the later part treats the voyage of Le Maire. Of the two voyages, that of Le Maire and Schouten is the more significant. They discovered a new passage to the Pacific south of the Straits of Magellan, sailed around Tierra del Fuego, and named Cape Horn. Sailing to the west, they discovered the islands of the Taumoto Archipelago, the Tonga group, the Solomon Islands, and several islands along the northern coast of New Guinea. These discoveries contributed greatly to the European knowledge of the South Pacific. When Le Maire and Schouten's ship reached Jakarta in late 1616, they were seized by agents of the Dutch East India Company and sailed the rest of the way back to the Netherlands accompanied by Van Spilbergen's fleet. Le Maire died en route. The main contribution of Van Spilbergen's exploration was in the Philippines and the Ladrone Islands. He also performed important military work for the Dutch government, raiding Spanish shipping and settlements along the coast of South America. Many of the locations he visited and raided are depicted in the woodcuts. Van Spilbergen was apparently impressed with Le Maire and Schouten's achievement, and had the account of their explorations published together with his own voyage. The work went through several printings in many languages. The book contains a wealth of images of the islands and peoples of the South Pacific, including a map of Tierra del Fuego and the "Straits of Le Maire," the "Cocos" Islands (Tafahi), and the "Hoornsche" Islands of the Tonga group. It also includes the important map showing Le Maire and Schouten's route across the Pacific, and maps of the Philippines. The illustrations include views of the Straits of Magellan, Acapulco, Lima, and Concepcion.

        PARABIEN AL REY D. FELIPE IIII. N.S. QUE DA LA CABEÇA DEL REYNO DEL PIRU

      [Madrid, 1621. Folio. Loose gatherings. Outermost gathering neatly reinforced with tissue along spine and fore edges. Discreet tissue repairs to fore edge of other leaves. Clean and fresh. Very good. Memorial to the King of Spain written by Juan Ortiz de Cervantes, Procurador General, advocating for the rights of encomendero holders in Peru. Ortiz de Cervantes points out the need to treat the native population more gently - not from any moral stance, but because the harsh labor draft for the Potosi mines was killing so many Indians that it was threatening the general economy of the province, and thus the profits of the encomenderos. He also argues that Peru's creole elite should be appointed to high offices based on their merits. Date and imprint suggested by EUROPEAN AMERICANA. Only two copies in OCLC, at the John Carter Brown Library and the British Library.

Le tout recueilly de l'experience, es guerres du Pays-bas, & publié en langue Espagnolle. [Engr. titlepage:] Amsterdam, Johannes Janssonius, 1635; [typ. titlepage:] Zutphen, Andre d’Aelst, 1621.

      - Contemporary vellum, lower right corner of front and corner of back cover damaged, else a very good copy of this rare edition, with a contemporary ownership mark at the final endpaper. pag.: [6] 144, 6. With engr. titleborder with a centrepiece titlepage mounted, woodcut printer’s device on the typographic titlepage and 29, mostly double-page folded engravings. 2: PI, PI2 A-S4 a4 (a4 blank). Diego Ufano was associated with the Spanish armies in the Netherlands. His book on artillerie first appeared in 1612. The first edition of the French translation was published in Zutphen in 1621. According to Simoni this edition was based on the French edition that was published in Frankfurt in 1614, for which Theodor de Bry copied the original plates (which are subsequently copied in our edition), and printed by Paulus van Ravesteyn at Amsterdam, with the ‘nobilitas’ device of Theodore Rodenburgh he used. Apparently Johannes Janssonius in Amsterdam bought the remaining copies of the Zwolle publisher and republished the book als a title-issue. He simply added a new titlepage, consisting of an engraved border with a new titlepage pasted on in the centre. In his work Ufano describes a method used for salving guns, which had to be recovered after being lost occasionally when armies crossed rivers. The illustration shows one of the earliest depictions of a diver, using a large hood made of cow’s hide. A respiration tube was connected to his helmet and was kept above by a pig’s blatter, allowing the diver to breathe when he didn’t go any deeper then a few meters.

        De domanio Franciae Libri III

      Parisiis|(Paris): Apud Michaëlem Sonnium, 1621. Fine. Apud Michaëlem Sonnium, Parisiis (Paris) 1621, In-Folio (21,5x34,5cm), (12) 498pp. (108), relié. - Last edition, after the first published in 1574 Title page in red and black. Great brand impimeur the title page. Full sheepskin brown vintage. Spine ribbed ornate. Part of title in brown morocco. Double fillet border on covers. A slight wetness, dry and clear at the top of the center structure of 8 cm, without any seriousness, but browner in the last index. Good copy. Test the legitimacy of the French monarchy and its laws. Choppin defends the idea of a centralized student, not only Roman law royalty, but also the feudal and royal right to the Goths, in Byzantium, the Persians, Egyptians, Macedonians ... In his third book, Choppin examines the characteristics of the Salic law in France (which excludes women could rule) by comparing it to the right in other nations. The first version of the Salic Code (criminal and civil law) dates back to the fifth century and settled inheritance. In line with Bodin, from Anjou like him and he accused of having plundered his ideas, the lawyer Choppin is a sovereignist thinker, he supported the strength of the state on the notion of sovereignty; this is one of the first thinker of the concept of state. Three indexes end of the book, allowing in particular to trace the historical specificities of each nation (Scotland, Denmark ...) --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Dernière édition, après la première parue en 1574. Page de titre en rouge et noir.  Grande marque de l'impimeur en page de titre. Reliure en pleine basane brune d'époque. Dos à nerfs richement orné. Pièce de titre en maroquin brun. Double filet d'encadrement sur les plats. Une légère mouillure, sèche et claire au centre haut de l'ouvrage sur 8 cm, sans gravité aucune, mais plus brune dans le dernier index. Bon exemplaire. Essai sur la légitimité de la monarchie française et de ses lois. Choppin défend l'idée d'une royauté centralisée en étudiant, non seulement le droit romain, mais également le droit féodal et royal chez les Goths, à Byzance, les Perses, les Egyptiens, les Macédoniens... Dans son troisième livre, Choppin étudie les caractéristiques de la loi salique en France (qui exclue les femmes de pouvoir régner) en la comparant au droit chez d'autres nations. La première version du code salique (droit pénal et civil) remonte au Ve siècle et réglait les droits de succession. Dans la lignée de Bodin, originaire de l'Anjou comme lui et qu'il accusera d'avoir pillé ses idées, le juriste Choppin est un penseur souverainiste, il appuie la solidité de l'état sur la notion de souveraineté ; c'est un des premiers penseur du concept d'état. Trois index en fin d'ouvrage, permettant notamment de retrouver les spécificités historiques de chaque nation (Ecosse, Danemark...)

Quibus in tres Philosophiae partes acerrimè inquiritur, Henrico Stephano Interprete: Adversus Mathematicos, hoc est, eos qui disciplinas profitentur, Libri X. Gentiano Herveto Avrelio Interprete. Graecè nunc primùm editi. Adjungere visum est Pyrrhonis Eliensis Philosophi vitam: nec non Claudii Galeni Pergameni de Optimo docendi gener librum, quo adversus Academicos Pyrrhoniosque disputat. MS. nostri Varioas Lectiones & coniecturas aliquot margini insertas Operi praefiximus.

      Paris, Abraham Picard, 1621. Folio. Nice mottled full calf binding (ab. 1850) with six raised bands and guilt title-label to gilt spine. Edges of boards gilt. Minor wear to extremities. Very light scattered brownspotting and a small stamp to the title-page, otherwise internally very nice and clean. A fresh, clean and solid copy with good, large margins. Engraved title-vignette, woodcut ornamental borders and large woodcut initials to first leaves. (20), 521, (41, -Index) pp.. The very rare editio princeps of one of the single most important "opera" in the history of Western thought, namely the first edition of the original Greek text of the collected works of Sextus Empiricus, a body of writing that came to determine the course of much modern thought, influencing the thought of Bruno, Montaigne, Descartes, and many other pivotal thinkers of the modern era. The present collection of writings constitutes one of the the single most important texts in the history of skepticism, determining the course of modern thought. "No discovery of the Renaissance remains livelier in modern philosophy than scepticism". (Copenhaver & Schmitt, p. 338). "The revived skepticism of Sextus Empiricus was the strongest single agent of disbelief". (ibid., p. 346). "As the only Greek Pyrrhonian sceptic whose works survived, he came to have a dramatic role in the formation of modern thought. The historical accident of the rediscovery of his works at precisely the moment when the skeptical problem of the criterion had been raised gave the ideas of Sextus a sudden and greater prominence than they had ever before or were ever to have again. Thus, Sextus, a recently discovered oddity, metamorphosed into "le divin Sexte", who, by the end of the seventeenth century, was regarded as the father of modern philosophy. Moreover, in the late sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, the effect of his thoughts upon the problem of the criterion stimulated a quest for certainty that gave rise to the new rationalism of René Descartes and the "constructive skepticism" of Pierre Gassendi and Martin Mersenne." (Popkin, p. 18)."The revival of ancient philosophy was particularly dramatic in the case of scepticism. This critical and anti-dogmatic way of thinking was quite important in Antiquity, but in the Middle Ages its influence faded [...] when the works of Sextus and Diogenes were recovered and read alongside texts as familiar as Cicero's "Academia", a new energy stirred in philosophy; by Montaigne's time, scepticism was powerful enough to become a major force in the Renaissance heritage prepared for Descartes and his successors." (Copenhaver & Schmitt, pp. 17-18). The work appeared in two variants, the present printed in Geneva by the Chouet brothers and another one printed In Paris by Picard. No precedence between the two has been established, but the present Chouet-edition is the one that is usually referred to in secondary literature (e.g. popkin, kristeller, Copehaver & Schmitt). See:Kristeller: "Renaissance Thought II. Papers on Humanism and the Arts", 1965.Popkin: "The History of Scepticism. From Savonarola to Bayle", 2003.Lohr: "Renaissance Latin translations on the Greek commentaries on Aristotle", in: "Humanism and Early Modern Philosophy", Edt. by Kraye and Stone, 2000.Schmitt: "Gianfrancesco Pico della Mirandola (1469-1533) and his critique of Aristotle", 1967.Copenhaver & Schmitt: "Renaissance Philosophy", 1992

        Cyclometricus, de circuli dimensione secundum logistarum abacos, & ad mechanicem accuratissima; atque omnium parabilissima

      Lvgdvni Batavorum [London], Ex officinâ Elzeviriana, 1621. 4to. Later full vellum. 5 pages with professional marginal repairs, far from affecting text. A fine and clean copy with broad margins. (20), 102 pp.. The rare first edition of Snell's famous work, in which pi was found to thirty-four decimals for the first time, thereby producing a new method for calculating pi - the first such improvement since ancient times.Using Van Ceulen's method, 96-sided polygons give pi correct to 7 places, while the classical method yields only 2 places. Van Ceulen's 35 places could be found with polygons of 230 sides rather than 262 and Van Ceulen's 35 places of pi appear in print for the first time in the present work. De Morgan noted that: "This is a celebrated work on the approximative quadrature, which, having the suspicious word cyclometricus, must be noticed here for distinction" (De Morgan, A Budget of Paradoxes). "In the Cyclometricus (1621) pi was found, by Van Ceulen's methods, to thirty-four decimals; and the thirty-fifth decimal, found in Van Ceulen's papers, was added. Snel also explained his own shorter method, following and improving on Van Lansberge's Cyclometria nova (1616)" (DSB)."He showed how narrower limits may be obtained for pi without increasing the number of sides which gave closer limits for the corresponding arcs. His method was superior to that of Van Ceulen that the 34 places were obtained from a polygon of 2*30 sides, i.e., 1,073,741,824 sides, from which Van Ceulen had obtained only 14 or perhaps 16 places. Similarly, the value for pi obtained correct to two places by Archimedes from a polygon of 96 sides was obtained by Snell from a hexagon, while he determined the value correct to seven places from a polygon of 96 sides" (Berggren, Pi: A Source Book). Snell (1580-1626) was the son of a wealthy professor of mathematics at the University of Leiden in Holland, where young Snell himself studied law. But it was mathematics that intrigued him, and through his studies, he made considerable contributions to science. He is probably best remembered for the optical law of incidence and refraction named for him [which remained unpublished].Apart from having discovered what is now know as "Snell's law", "Snell had also developed the method of determining distances by trigonometric triangulation and thus founded the modern art of mapmaking." (Asimov:79a).

As the title states, the illustrations were based on on a manuscript of Aratus in the University of Leiden.Warner (who mistakenly refers to the figures as woodcuts), states that they were 'perhpas the finest illustrations of the individual Hyginus constellations'.Jakob van Gheyn II (1565-1629) was a Dutch Mannerist engraver and painter. He studied in Haarlem under Hendrik Goltzius, and executed commissions for Maurice of Nassau, Prince of Orange.The first plate is unsigned; the first numbered plate is signed 'I.D.

        M. Val. Martialis Ex Museo Petri Scriverii

      Amsterdam: Apud Guihelm Ianssonium, 1621. Very good antiquarian condition. 32mo. (113 x 58 mm). 318 pp. including engraved title-page depicting cupids and satyrs. Contemporary Parisian binding by the Atelier Mace Ruette: red morocco elegantly gilt with superb assurance, centers inlaid with olive morocco, five raised bands on spine (beautifully rebacked), comb-marbled endpapers and pastedowns (marbling abraded inside front hinge; inscription on verso of front endpaper erased), ruled in red throughout, a.e.g. Fine contemporary Parisian binding, securely attributable to the Atelier Mace Ruette. Our example is gilt with the same tools and identical design as Esmerian (2nd sale) no. 8 (Smith, De Republica Anglorum, 1625) and No. 11 (Emmius, Graecorum Respublicae, 1632), both of which were printed by Elzevier, and bound by Ruette for H.-L. Habert de Montmort, Conseiller au Parlement de Paris. Mace Ruette (1584-1638) apprenticed to Dominique Salie and by 1606 he had opened his own shop. In 1629 he was appointed "administrateur de la Confrerie des libraires, imprimeurs et relieurs," which he served until 1634, at which time he succeeded Clovis Eve as "relieur ordinaire du Roi." Ruette was also a publisher of equal distinction, but he is best known as a binder who began experimenting with pointille tooling ca. 1620, a style of decoration that was to become a major feature of French bindings for decades. Upon Ruette's death in 1638 the post of "relieur du Roi" passed to his son Antoine. This volume has a very significant provenance: "Stanley 1813" (pencil inscription on first blank leaf), i.e. Col. Thomas Stanley (his sale, London, Evans, 30 April 1813, lot 195). Stanley (1749-1818) was an early and important English collector of bookbindings who was one of Roger Payne's main patrons. -- Purchased from the Stanley sale by W. Clark -- Chas. Bain Hoyt (leather armorial bookplate inside front cover). Hoyt (1889-1949), of New York City, was a great collector of Oriental pottery and porcelain, paintings, and prints; he was a major benefactor of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston. -- Irving Halpern 1988 (pencil inscription on final blank).

        Nova typis transacta navigatio

      1621. KILIAN, Wolfgang. Nova Typis Transacta Navigatio. Novi Orbis Indiae Occidentalis. By Honorius Philoponus, (pseud. of Caspar Plautius, O.S.B.). Collation: )(4, 2)(2, A-N4. Engraved emblematic title (included in first quire), [10], 101, [3] pp. Illustrated with 18 numbered engraved plates (all but the first and plates 8 and 15 bound in lengthwise and folding), plus the unnumbered "Owl" plate; 3 woodcut diagrams on f. 2)(1v, woodcut factotum initials, type ornament head-pieces, woodcut tail-piece. Printed music on f. E2. Folio, 300 x 196 mm, bound in contemporary German limp vellum. [Linz, s.n.], 1621. |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition, second, enlarged issue of this famous account of the Benedictine missionaries who accompanied Columbus on his second voyage to the Americas. The book has been called "one of the most curious and interesting pictorial volumes of Americana, and of great rarity." Part history, part fantasy, this odd work chronicles the evangelisation of America by the Catalonian Benedictine Bernardo Buil (or Boyl), Abbot of Monserrat, who with twelve of his followers travelled with Christopher Columbus on his second voyage to Hispaniola (Haiti) in 1493. Considered the first Patriarch of the region, Buil served as Viscount General of the West Indies. In this capacity he often quarreled vehemently with Columbus, and upon returning to Spain lodged a formal complaint with King Ferdinand against the explorer's conduct. Ferdinand ruled in Columbus's favor, and Buil retired to the Abbey of Cuxa. The work was written pseudonymously by Caspar Plautius, O.S.B. of Munich, and Abbot of Seitenstetten (Austria) from 1610 to 1627. Plautius' account of the early Benedictine missionaries' achievements is laced with marvels and miracles, the actual voyage of the monks being conflated with other, legendary voyages (notably that of the Irish Saint Brendan), and he dwells on the cruelties of the native inhabitants in support of the notion that Satan ruled the native American religions. The work is nonetheless filled with authentic details of Caribbean customs, agricultural products, local flora and fauna, and arts. The specimen of printed music on pp. 35-36 represents one of the earliest printed examples of Native American chants. The notoriously immodest dedicatory epistle from the author to himself attests to his own great learning. "In the most fulsome style… he inscribes the work to himself in a long and highly complimentary dedication. He accuses the DeBrys, in their great collection of voyages, of telling outrageous lies, forgetting apparently his own whackers."--Henry Stevens, Bibiotheca. Historica, 1549. Although the place of publication is not given, the book was printed in nearby Linz, according to H.J. Wynkelmann's near contemporary work entitled Der Amerikanischen neuen Welt beschreibung (Oldenburg, 1664, p. 30). Most interesting are the copperplate engravings, first-rate examples of the dense narrative style associated with the de Bry Voyages. Only the first engraving is signed, by Wolfgang Kilian (1581-1662), Augsburg master-engraver, but the others are comparable in style and were probably also executed by him. The engraved architectonic title shows at top a reptilian Satan vanquished by the Pascal lamb amidst other emblematic objects; flanking the title are St. Brendan and Father Buil, the latter baptizing an Indian; at their feet a phoenix and a pelican with her piety, and at bottom center a small map showing India and America, with ship-studded seas between, on either shore a crowned column. This issue contains an additional emblematic plate of an owl between a royal crown and a bishop's mitre, symbolizing the Benedictine's achievements for the crown of Spain. Plate 1, purportedly Columbus with a hemispherical map, is a copy of the de Bry portrait of Francisco Pizarro on a map in the Great Voyages series. Plate 2 represents St. Brendan celebrating mass on the back of a whale; to the east are the landmasses of Spain and Africa, to the north the mythic island of St. Brendan (whose existence was not definitively disproved until the nineteenth century). The other extraordinary engravings depict the Spanish court, the fleet disembarking from Spain, cannibals attacking and roasting members of the Spanish crew, several friendlier scenes of local hospitality, one showing mounds of local fruit and an iguana served on European silver, the missionaries toppling the Indians' altar with disastrous consequences, a front- and back view of the Indians' idol, indigenous fruit and flowers, construction of a Christian church, Indian noblemen riding a sea-monster, a Christian mass, and various acts of barbaric cruelty, some perpetrated by Church dignitaries. All of exceptionally high quality, the engravings are here present in crisp, dark impressions. The specimen of printed music on pp. 35-36 represents an early printed example of Native American chants. In this second issue quires )( & N were reset, the latter now including a final errata page, and a new quire containing observations on the lodestone was added. The Owl plate is here bound in preceding the errata leaf (N4), instead of at the end of the preface to the reader, as instructed in the printed placement note for the binder. Engraved title with short clean tear along platemark, neatly repaired tear in pl. 7, short tear into pl. 10, binding recased, else a fine, tall copy with full margins and fresh impressions of the famous engraved plates.

Clean and fresh. Very good. Memorial to the King of Spain written by Juan Ortiz de Cervantes, Procurador General, advocating for the rights of encomendero holders in Peru. Ortiz de Cervantes points out the need to treat the native population more gently - not from any moral stance, but because the harsh labor draft for the Potosi mines was killing so many Indians that it was threatening the general economy of the province, and thus the profits of the encomenderos. He also argues that Peru's creole elite should be appointed to high offices based on their merits. Date and imprint suggested by EUROPEAN AMERICANA.

        Eigenh. Antwortentwurf mit U., dorsal auf Kanzleischreiben der nö. Landstände an den HKR.

      Wien, 7. XII. 1621. - ¼ S. auf gefalt. Doppelblatt (neben der Adresse auf der Rückseite des Gegenblatts). Papiergedecktes Siegel. Folio. Antwort auf ein Schreiben der Verordneten der niederösterreichischen Landstände an den Hofkriegsrat mit einer Beschwerde über das Festhalten des Obersten Rudolf Gf. Colloredo an einer widerrechtlich begangenen Beschlagnahme in Wiener Neustadt trotz hofkriegsrätlichen Befehls zum Ersatz: "Auf deroselben unnß verwichenen Monats Novembris beschehene zuferttigung, sechtzig centen stahel, so herr obriste Colloredo freyherr, ainem in der Neustatt bezallen solte, betreffent, haben wir wolermelten herrn obristen die befriedigung angedeuter maßen per decretum auferlegt, wie aber gedachter herr obrister sich hievon entschuldiget, undt was er ferrers sich hierüber erclärt, das ist auß seinem unnß übergebenen Bericht A. mit mehreren zuersehen" (ohne die erwähnte Beilage). - Questenberg, "der bereits unter Kaiser Matthias hervorgetreten war, stieg nach dem Regierungsantritt Ferdinands II. endgültig zur bestimmenden Persönlichkeit im Hofkriegsrat auf" (NDB XXI, 43). In seiner Erwiderung an die Stände ließ er "denen n. ö. herren verordneten vom dem hohen hofkriegsrath [.] diese verordnung [.] thuen, daß ihrer k[ayserlichen] m[ajestät] allergnädigster bevelch" dahin laute, "ihme h. obr. von Coloredo" sei der Gegenwert des Stahls vom Gehalt "abzuziehen und dem clager zuezustellen", Oberst Colloredo dagegen sei zu bescheiden, "daß dieses kein contrabant sey", daß das fragliche Gut aber für den Fall, "das es ain contraband gewest wär, nit ihme sondern dem khayser zugehört haben würde, desßwegen billig ihme die erstattung auferlegt und dem clager zuerkant wurden". - Ein typisches Beispiel für die Mißstände im kaiserlichen Heer des frühen 17. Jahrhunderts, die bis in die kommandoführenden Ränge reichten. Rudolf Gf. Colloredo-Waldsee (1585-1657) hatte 1619 "die Bewilligung [erhalten], in Niederösterreich ein Regiment zu werben, mit dem er die Grenzen dieses Erblandes sicherte" (NDB III, 328). "Viele Oberste jener Zeit lassen sich den jetzigen Fabriksherren vergleichen. Wie diesen die Arbeiter, so dienten jenen die Kriegsknechte als Mittel mühelos sich zu bereichern [.] Wohl mußte jeder Oberst durch die Capitulation sich verbürgen, 'gute Ordnung zu halten, Niemand zu beschweren, Muthwill, Frevel und Unzucht zu bestrafen", aber zum Vollziehen des Beschworenen fehlte jetzt die Möglichkeit, sodann der gute Wille, welcher kaum zu erwarten war, wenn der Befehlshaber selbst in fremdem Eigenthum eine willkommene Beute erblickte. Oberst Rudolph Colloredo (im Dienste der n. ö. Stände) nahm unter dem Vorgeben von Contrebande dem Eisenhändler Joachim Peringer von Neustadt 60 Centner Stahl, für deren Ausführung nach Ungarn er ein Privilegium besaß, hinweg. Der Hofkriegsrath wies die Verordneten an (Schreiben vom 4. Mai 1623), dem Obersten hiefür 523 fl. am Sold abzuziehen" (Hurter, Geschichte Kaiser Ferdinands II., Bd. VIII, S. 321-323). - Die Unterschrift der Beschwerdeschrift (wahrscheinlich die des nö. Landmarschalls Seyfried Christoph von Breuner?) ausgeschnitten. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Relacion del viaje que por orden de su Magd. y acuerdo del real Consejo de Indias. Hizieron los Capitanes Bartolome Garcia de Nodal, y Gonçalo de Nodal hermanos, naturales de Ponte Vedra, al descubrimiento del Estrecho nuebo de S. Vicente y reconosimjo. del de Magallanes

      Madrid: Fernando Correa, 1621. Small quarto, with the large folding map (350 x 420 mm.); engraved title with inset portraits of the Nodal brothers, their two ships and the Straits of Magellan, signed I. De Courbes; three woodcuts in the text; some minimal soiling in margins and a couple of marginal tears; a fine and genuine copy, with the correct first edition of the map, in contemporary limp vellum, spine lettered by hand, ties partially present. An exceptional rarity: complete with the map. An outstanding copy of one of the most elusive of all voyage books. This first edition, notoriously difficult to find and especially so with its correct map, was a famous rarity even in the 1860s when Sabin described it as 'one of the rarest books of its class'. The Hill catalogue calls it 'particularly with the map...one of the rarest books on voyages of the 17th century'. The map was very probably not generally issued; Thomas W. Streeter's collection had to make do with a facsimile, although his son Frank S. Streeter managed to secure a copy once in an Argentinian Jesuit library (sale 16 April 2007, lot 386).The Hill catalogue mentions that 'copies containing the map are so rare that it is believed to have been suppressed in accordance with official Spanish policy of secrecy'. In any event, the book has almost never appeared complete on the market in modern times. Most libraries and collectors have had to make do with the second edition, itself very scarce, which was published almost 150 years later in 1769.This landmark voyage of Pacific discovery to the Straits of Magellan cleared the way for future Spanish approaches to the Straits and beyond. The voyage came about as the Spanish reflex reaction to the Dutch discovery of the Le Maire Strait (called San Vicente by the Spanish); it had been discovered by Le Maire and Schouten during their 1616 voyage in search of the Southern Continent. The Dutch success alarmed the Spanish - but they were also interested in a safer means of passage into the South Sea; they therefore sent out two caravels under the command of the Nodal brothers, to report on the Le Maire and Schouten discoveries.'This was the first circumnavigation of Tierra del Fuego. The whole voyage, out and back, had taken only nine months and twelve days: 'a period which, in the present state of navigation, would be reckoned very short for the performance of such a voyage, and was then unprecedented' (Burney) - many a Dutch and English ship took longer just to reach Cabo Virgines. The ships had never once separated, and except for one man hanged at Rio for plotting mutiny, there was not a single death. Rapid as the voyage was, it was not scamped; the Nodals brought back careful and clear sailing instructions, and paid unusual attention to tidal observations. Their conduct of the voyage was indeed a model of decision and efficiency; but they fell victims to the general slackness which was creeping over Spanish naval affairs: the Spain of Philip III was not that of Philip II' (Spate II, p. 26).The supposed danger of the voyage was such that volunteers could not be found, and apart from a handful of Dutch pilots, the crew was staffed entirely by prisoners. The voyage must also be reckoned as an altogether heroic feat of navigation, second in daring only to the voyages of Magellan, Drake and Cook. The eminent eighteenth-century voyage historian La Borde remarks that the King of Spain was so pleased by the efficiency of the route that he immediately ordered an expedition to the Philippines, which was accomplished in record time.The map is signed by the Portuguese cartographer Pedro Texeira Albernas (1575-1640), although Markham asserts that it was actually drawn up by the Nodal brothers themselves. As well as being a legendary rarity, it is also of outstanding interest: as a major original contribution to geographical knowledge by an Iberian cartographer, it is virtually unparalleled in the closing years of the discovery period - almost all other maps of the period were more or less derivative and virtually never offered enough cartographic information to serve navigational purposes, as does the present map.

Encadernação da época em pergaminho flexível com lombada de cor negra e rolada com ferros a ouro. Ilustrado com magnifico anterrosto gravado com as armas de Portugal ao centro, uma bela gravura que simboliza a Lusitânia, seguindo-se 24 retratos de rainhas e principes, entre os quais, os retratos do Conde D.

ANTONIO DE VASCONCELLOS, Jesuita, Prefeito e Reitor da Univ. d?Evora, Preposito da Casa de Faro, e Visitador das ilhas etc. - N. em Lisboa em 1554, sendo filho de Bartholomeu Froes Perestrello, Fidalgo da Casa Real, e de sua mulher D. Sueira de Vasconcellos. M. em Evora a 12 de Julho de 1622, depois de uma prolongada enfermidade que o teve na cama dez annos successivos. ? E. Tractado do Anjo da Guarda. Douto e pio devia ser, quem na disposição de saude que o auctor tinha (já adiantado em annos e enfermo de cama, da molestia de que faleceu) ao emprehender a obra de que se tracta, chegou a concluil?a, com tão vasta erudição sagrada e profana, e com tão afervorado espirito, pura linguagem, e elegante estylo como n?ella se admiram. O exemplar que possuo d?este Tractado, bem acondicionado e novamente encadernado, custou?me 2:400 réis, e é este o preço por que hão corrido os poucos que apparecem no mercado. É tambem muito apreciada, principalmente entre os estrangeiros, a sua: 1585) Anacephal?oses, id est summa capita actorum Regum Lusitan? Antuerpia, apud Petrum & Joannem Belleros. 1621. 4.º de 597 pag. com os retratos dos reis gravados a buril. Esta obra anda cotada em 30 francos no Catalogo de Shwabi n.º 1337: em Portugal tem corrido por preços mais modicos, que regulam quasi sempre entre 1:600 e 2:400. «Na Anacephalæoses resumiu o auctor as nossas chronicas, accrescentando e mudando o que lhe pareceu, não sei se mais certo, se mais glorioso e plausivel. O estylo é florido, e quasi poetico, e refere as acções que mereciam censura, dourando?as com clausulas elegantes e agradaveis.» (Marquez d?Alegrete.) Diz o academico Leitão Ferreira nas Noticias Chronologicas da Universidade de Coimbra pag. 283, que o primeiro auctor dos retratos dos reis, que traz o P. Vasconcellos nas Anacephal?oses, e que são de buril mais polido que os que haviam dado á luz Pedro de Mariz nos seus Dialogos e Fr. Bernardo de Brito nos Elogios (se parecidos, ou não, outrem o julgará) foi Manuel Sueiro, auctor dos Annaes de Flandres. Alguns chegaram a persuadir?se de que as chapas dos ditos retratos eram as proprias que depois serviram na obra Philippus Prudens de Caramuel. Examinei e confrontei uns e outros, e em resultado digo que me parece que a maior parte das ditas chapas são effectivamente as mesmas, porém que foram retocadas para servirem no Philippus. Ha porêm os retratos de D. Pedro e D. Manuel, que fazem nas cabeças considerabilissima differença, e accusam a existencia de chapas totalmente diversas. Tambem o retrato d
