The van Gheyn versions of Hyginus served as the models for Bayer's figures in his Uranometria, Augsburg 1603. 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. Gheyn figur.', and the remaining ones 'IDG'.Warner p 93 1a; OCLC records US Naval Observatory and Ohio State for North America

        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. Rare. Alden/Landis 621:100. Sabin 63367. Palau 22462. Leclerc 447. Streit II, 1527. JCB II, 156. Palau & Dulcet VI, 107.

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.

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.

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
