A fine copy with excellent leaves of one of the most desirable leaf books. * Charlton Heston played Shakespeare's tragedies and historical dramas on stage and in movies on several occasions. He teamed up with David Bradley in the late 1940s to produce the first sound version of William Shakespeare's "Julius Caesar", in which he played Mark Antony. In 1948, Heston was offered a supporting role in a Broadway revival of "Antony and Cleopatra", starring Katharine Cornell. Later in 1972, he directed the movie "Antony and Cleopatra" where he played Mark Antony again. His most frequent stage roles included the title role in Macbeth. Regarding the original leaves of the historic plays "Richard III" and "Henry VIII" from Shakespeare's Folios contained in this copy, it must be mentioned that Heston played Sir Thomas More in "A Man for All Seasons" in several regional productions in the 1970s and 1980s. He regarded "A Man for All Seasons" as the best play of the 20th century and called it the most rewarding experience - apart from Shakespeare - that he'd ever had on the stage (Charlton Heston, Actor's Life, p. 230). Interesting association copy from the library of actor Charlton Heston

Guenebauld, fils de l'auteur et une planche double (tombeau et urne) gravée par Nicolas Spirinx et quelques figures sur bois dans le texte. Médecin et antiquaire à Dijon, Jean Guénebaud découvrit vers 1600, dans une de ses vignes, un tombeau de pierre de forme ronde, haut de 30 centimètres et renfermant une urne en verre, qui excita vivement l'attention de Saumaise, Casaubon et de Thou. D'après une inscription grecque grossièrement sculptée, ce tombeau était celui d'un grand prêtre nommé Chindonax. Ce monument fut donné par son fils au cardinal de Richelieu, et servit par la suite d'abreuvoir dans la basse-cour d'un curé de village. Bel exemplaire dans une reliure de qualité. Des rousseurs. Brunet, IV, 1257 : « Cet ouvrage est assez curieux, mais on ne recherche que les exemplaires où se trouve la planche qui représente le tombeau et l'urne » ; Caillet, II, 4819 ; Dorbon, 5940.

        THEOPHILE DE VIAU: Arrest de la Cour du Parlement. La prise de Théophile. Plainte de Théophile.

      1623 - Trois fascicules format in-12. Le premier, de 8 pages, est l'arrêt de la Cour du Parlement qui condamne à mort Théophile de Viau pour avoir écrit 'Le Parnasse Satyrique". Théophile de Viau est le premier écrivain à avoir été condamné à mort pour ses écrits blasphématoires. Légère tache d'humidité en couverture. Le deuxième fascicule, de 14 pages, raconte la fuite de Théophile de Viau apprenant sa condamnation à mort. Il est alors brûlé en effigie ("fantôme"). Il est capturé dans la citadelle du Castellet, en Picardie et ramené à Paris; mais sa fuite lui épargnera le bûcher et sa peine sera commuée en exil. Le troisième fascicule, de 13 pages, est la poésie écrite par Théophile de Viau à la citadelle du Castellet lors de sa fuite. Couverture qui se détache avec petit accroc. Les deux premiers fascicules, imprimés pour le Parlement, sont en très beau papier. Le papier du troisième, clandestin, est de qualité inférieure. Ces trois documents sont uniques dans l'histoire de la littérature. C'est donc bien avant la fatwa contre Salman Rushdie, qu'a eu lieu, en France, la première condamnation à mort pour écrits blasphématoires envers la religion! [Attributes: First Edition]

        Septentrionalium Terrarum descriptio

      Amsterdam: Jodocus Hondius, 1623. unbound. Map. Engraving. Image measures 14.5" x 15.5". This fine antique map is the first printed map dedicated to the Arctic Circle and the North Polar regions. Derived from an inset of the Arctic regions in Mercator's great 1569 world map, where he first introduced his revolutionary projection, here the scope is extended to the latitude of 60 degrees to enable the depictions of the Frobisher and Davis' attempts to search for the North West and North East Passages.<br><br>California curiously appears north of the Strait of Anian and is labeled as Spanish Territory. Across from Anian on the Asian coast, Mercator labels the land of Gog. This most likely references the regions of Gog and Magog appearing in the Hebrew Bible or to the legend of horse-riding barbarians from near the Don River and the Sea of Azov, locked up by Alexander the Great behind gates surrounded by the 'Caspian' or the Caucasus Mountains.<br><br>Perhaps the most intriguing feature here is the mapping of the North Pole. Since no explorers at this time had made it anywhere near the North Pole, Mercator based his depiction on the legend that a large rock (the Rupes Nigra) stood at the pole in the center of a whirlpool known as Polynya, or Open Polar Sea. Mercator is believed to be referencing the Inventio Fortunata, the lost book dating from the 14th century which describes the North Pole as a magnetic island surrounded by a giant whirlpool and four continents. The continents are separated by rivers through which warm water from the surrounding oceans flowed. Although Mercator also includes another magnetic rock just north of the Strait of Anian which he labels as the magnetic pole, indicating that given the magnetic variation, Mercator himself did not believe the north pole to be the magnetic pole.<br><br> In addition, as one text annotation describes, one of the four islands was believed to be inhabited by pygmies. References to this can also be found in the Inventio Fortunata as the people that the author encountered. This could also be referring to the Skraeling (the name considered by some to be the direct Old Norse translation of the Latin word Pygmaei), the indigenous people of Greenland and North America whose men left the land to hunt in groups, leaving the females behind.<br><br>Another interesting feature is the phantom island of Frisland appearing between Greenland and Iceland. The island might have originally been a reference to Iceland until the 1558 Zeno map noted it as a separate island. The island continued to appear in several maps through the 1660s.<br><br>Following Mercator's death in 1594, it was left to his son Rumold to publish the first state of this map in 1595. This is the second state of the map published in 1623 by Jodocus Hondius. To account for the recent discoveries, particularly in Nova Zembla and Spitsbergen, Hondius, who acquired the plates in 1606, updated the the plates. He erased the coastline of the islands with the 'Pygmie', added Nieulant, Willoughbes Land and Macsin and made Nova Zembla one single island but with an incomplete coast.<br><br>In addition to the central hemisphere containing the Arctic, there are four roundels in the corners: one with the title, and the other three with maps of the Faeroe Isles, the Shetland Isles, and the non-existent island of Friesland. It is in good condition with overall toning. Centerfold exhibits minor wear and verso repair near the bottom margin, not affecting the image. Minor foxing, especially near the inset of Frisland in the top left. Latin text on verso.<br><br>Gerardum Mercator (1512-1594) was an accomplished mathematician, cartographer, globe maker and engraver but is best known for the Mercator Projection. Incorporating the newly accepted fact that the world is round, Mercator was able to render longitude lines consistently straight on a chart. Although this requires some distortion, it was of great use for navigators, and is historically important, as it is still the most commonly used projection today. Although their partnership was only indirect, Mercator and Hondius are one of the most significant pairs in the history of mapmaking. (Burden 88, confirmed by Burden.)

Prgt der Zeit. vorderes Gelenk offen, wenige Seiten mit unwesentlichen randläsuren, sonst ganz vorzüglich erhalten. Vorgebunden sind: Salviani Massiliensis Opera: Ad Ludovicum XIII.

Bücherindex.Salvian zählt zu den bedeutenden Schriftstellern der Völkerwanderungszeit. Seine Berichte geben ein anschauliches Bild des Machtwechsels von der römischen zur fränkischen Herrschaft an Rhein und Mosel im 5. Jahrhundert nach Christus. Salvian wurde um das Jahr 400 nach Christus wahrscheinlich in Trier, vielleicht aber auch in Köln geboren. Er entstammte der romanischen Oberschicht, erhielt eine umfassende Ausbildung und fühlte sich bereits in jungen Jahren zu einem asketischen, nur Gott geweihten Leben berufen. So trennte er sich nach nur kurzer Ehe von seiner Ehefrau und seiner Tochter, denen er aber zeitlebens eng verbunden blieb. Seine Lebenszeit verläuft parallel zum endgültigen Niedergang der römischen Macht und dem Ende der Herrschaft der Römer am Rhein, was ihn zum Zeitzeugen eines einschneidenden politischen Wendepunkts macht. Er verließ seine durch die Germanengefahr bedrohte Heimat und ließ sich in dem Inselkloster Lerinum (heute Lerins, nahe Cannes) nieder, wo er erschüttert durch die Umwälzungen seiner Zeit mahnende theologische Werke zu verfassen begann. Sein wichtigstes Buch ist „De gubernatione dei\", das sich mit den Zeitereignissen unter theologischem Blickwinkel auseinandersetzt. In diesem Werk wird die scheinbare Ungerechtigkeit des Erfolgs der un- beziehungsweise fehlgläubigen Barbaren über die christlichen Römer mit der größeren Sittenstrenge der Ersteren und der moralischen Verderbtheit der Letzteren begründet.nach obenBesonders wichtig im regionalgeschichtlichen Zusammenhang sind dabei die Erwähnung der Städte Mainz und Trier, die als zerstört beschrieben werden, und der Stadt Köln, die „ voll von Feinden\" sei. Da im Zusammenhang mit Köln von Zerstörung ausdrücklich keine Rede ist, dürfte dies ein Hinweis darauf sein, dass dort der Übergang von der römischen zur fränkischen Herrschaft weitgehend gewaltfrei verlaufen war. Auf Trier wird in diesem Werk noch weitere Male verwiesen. Versand D: 6,00 EUR

        The Life of Henry the Fift (single leaf, First Folio)

      Original leaf from the Shakespeare First Folio. The Life of Henry the Fift.This is an original leaf salvaged from a derelict copy of the First Folio, printed in London in 1623. It has been estimated that there exist but 232 copies (of some 750 printed) of the First Folio, many incomplete. Wickipedia has a very good, brief history of the First Folio and I highly recommend it as a good overview if you are not already familiar with the book. I have been an antiquarian book dealer since about 1975 and although I have had material (including complete plays) from the Fourth Folio I have never, until now, had any material from the First Folio or the Second Folio. I know of no other leaves from these folios that are in dealer inventories (except the few that some dealers have bought from me). The collection of leaves I acquired was assembled in 1901/02. This may be a unique opportunity to acquire a leaf from one of the most important books in English.This leaf measures 8 x 12 inches (appx. 20.5 x 31 cm)The text is complete and perfectly legible. The leaf is age toned and stained with some minor creasing. This leaf does not have a watermark. It was compared to the same leaf in the Brandeis copy to ascertain correct folio.There are many typographical errors in the Folio and these differ from book to book. The text apparently was proofread while the book was in production. The Folio was assembled from gatherings of six leaves.

        Virginiae item et Floridae Americae provinciarum nova descriptio

      [Amsterdam: Hondius-Janssonius, 1623. Copper-plate engraving. Centerfold strengthened, repaired tear upper margin, otherwise excellent. One of the great early maps of the American South, from before the Jamestown colony The Mercator-Hondius map of Virginia and Florida, first published in 1606 by Jodocus Hondius, was the only regional American map in his edition of the Mercator Atlas. It is a remarkably good rendition of the coastline from St. Augustine to the Chesapeake Bay and points interior. Derived from John White's map of Virginia (what became North Carolina), Le Moyne-De Bry's map of Florida (what became South Carolina, Georgia and north Florida) and early travel accounts, Hondius cobbled together a map of great interest. On the coast one finds a roughly accurate northeasterly shoreline from the Spanish fort of St. Augustine to the St. John's River (here called R. de May) where the second unsuccessful Huguenot colony struggled in 1564, upward to Port Royal, where the first unsuccessful Huguenot colony failed in 1562, upward to Cape Fear (here Cape St. Romano) to the Outer Banks and finally to the clearly as yet unexplored Chesapeake Bay. Of the interior, rumor contends with pure fiction, but the source of many rivers is the "Apalatcy" mountain range, which also promises gold and silver. The South Carolina-Georgia portion of the interior is much more heavily notated with native villages, probably impossible at this point to verify.

Napier, the inventor of logarithms, also devised a number of devices for simplifying the multiplication and division of large numbers, the most famous being Napier's 'rods' or 'bones'. 'These rods, which in essence constitute a mechanical multiplication table, had a considerable vogue for many years after his death. Each rod is engraved with a table of multiples of a particular digit, the tens and units being separated by an oblique stroke . Book II [of the Rabdologiae] is a practical treatment of mensuration formulas. Book III, the method of the promptuary, deals with a more complicated system of multiplication by engraved rods and strips, which has been called the first attempt at the invention of a calculating machine. The concluding section deals with a mechanical method of multiplication that was based on an "areal abacus" consisting of a checkerboard with counters, in which numbers were expressed in the binary scale' (DSB).This translation contains additional commentary added by Locatello, as well as illustrations that don't appear in the original.The plates occur within the pagination but are in fact separately inserted.Provenance: contemporary inscription on title 'Collegii Parmensis Soc.

        INDONESIA &#150; SPICE ISLANDS: DE LANDVOOGDY VAN AMBOINA MET DE ELF ONDERHOORIGE EYLANDEN.

      - Jahr: Copper engraving with modern colour (Very Good, original folds), 33 x 79 cm (13 x 31 inches). Zusatz: This fine map shows the central islands of the Maluku Archipelago (Moluccas), the famed Spice Islands of Indonesia, including: Seram, Buru, Ambon and the Banda Islands. The map is the authoritative geographical view of the islands made during the 18th Century and was drafted by the Dutch adventurer François Valentijn, who lived on Ambon for many years. The main island of Seram (called here &#145;Ceram&#146;) was long overshadowed in history by the tiny island of Ambon (here &#145;Amboina&#146;), which during the 16th and 17th Centuries was the world capital of clove production. It also lay in close proximity to the Banda Islands, the only native source of nutmeg, which during the 17th Century was the world&#146;s most valuable spice. Portugal was the first European power to establish itself in the region, during the early 16th Century. While it endeavored to exploit the region&#146;s riches, it largely left the islands under the political control of their traditional rulers. During the early 17th Century the Dutch East India Company (the VOC) and the English East Indian Company (the EIC) and expelled the Portuguese presence. The Dutch and English soon turned on each other, as both sides were driven almost mad with greed over the islands&#146; phenomenal wealth in spices. The decisive event in the struggle was the &#145;Amboyna Massacre&#146; of 1623, during which the Dutch tortured and killed twenty Englishmen in cold blood. While the event tarred the reputation of the VOC and poisoned Anglo-Dutch relations for decades, the VOC managed to expel the EIC from the region, resulting in great commercial gain. The Dutch would dominate the area until Indonesian independence in 1949. The map was printed within Francois Valentyn's Oud en Nieuw Oost Indien, part V: Beschryving van Coromandel, Pegu, Arrakan, Bengale, Mocha, Persien, Malakka, Sumatra, Ceylon (Amsterdam, 1724). François Valentijn: Flamboyant Dutch Adventurer Francois Valentijn (1666 &#150; 1727) was an adventurer, minister, naturalist and writer. He was born in 1666 in Dordrecht, Holland, but spent significant time in the tropics, notably in Ambon. In total, he lived in the East Indies for 16 years. Valentijn was first employed by the Dutch East India Company (Vereenigde Oost-Indische Compagnie) at the age of 19, where he served as Minister to the East Indies. He returned to Holland for about ten years, before returning to the Indies in 1705 where he was to serve as Army Chaplain on an expedition in eastern Java. He again returned to Dordrecht where wrote his Oud en Nieuw Oost-Indien (Amsterdam, 1724&#150;26), a massive work of five parts published in eight volumes and containing over one thousand illustrations and including some of the most accurate maps of the Indies of the time. He died in The Hague in 1727. Valentijn probably had access to the V.O.C.'s archive of maps and geographic secrets that they had always guarded jealously. Johannes Van Keulen II became Hydrographer to the V.O.C. in the same year Valentijn&#146;s book was published. It was in Van Keulen&#146;s time that many of the VOC charts were published, one signal of the decline of Dutch dominance in Spice Trade. Valentijn was fortunate to have seen his work published, as the VOC (Dutch East India Company) strictly enforced a policy prohibiting former employees from publishing anything about the region or their colonial administration. And while, as Suárez notes, by the mid-18th Century the Dutch no longer feared sharing geographic secrets, the execution of this policy was still erratic and based on personal motives. While Valentijn&#146;s maps and diagrams were prized possessions, his scholarship, judging by contemporary standards was not of the highest integrity. While current standards of referencing and plagiarism were not in effect during the 18th Century, Valentijn&#146;s borrowed liberally from other scientists' and writers. E.M. Beekman referred to Valentijn as an "ex

        Arcana Historia, qui est liber nonus Historiarum

      J. Jullieron for A. Brugiotti, Lyon 1623 - FIRST EDITION. folio. pp (xii), xxiii (i), 135 (i), 142, (xx). Roman and Greek letter in double column. Title in red and black, engraved device of sun with motto "Flammis Ipse Suis", fine floriated woodcut initials and headpieces, grotesque tail-pieces, eight small engravings in text, early French ms note on fly concerning Theodora, early shelf-marks on pastedown. Light age yellowing, the odd marginal spot. A very good copy, crisp and clean, in slightly later French calf over boards, covers bordered with double gilt rule, spine with raised bands gilt in compartments, 'MI' within hexagram gilt in each, a.e.r., upper joint and head and tail of spine worn. First edition of this important work by Procopius, (Byzantine Greek historian, secretary to Belisarius, famous general of the Emperor Justinian), his famous &#145;Secret History&#146; which had recently been discovered in the Vatican library and edited for publication by Niccolo Alamanni. The text&#146;s existence was known from contemporary sources which referred to it as the Anekdota but had remained unpublished. It covers roughly the same years as the first seven books of Procopius&#146; History of Justinian's Wars and appears to have been written after their appearence, in 550-558. The Palestinian Procopius accompanied Belisarius in his early campaigns in Africa and Italy, and was later made prefect of Constantinople, then capital of the Empire, in 562. His History of the Wars, is an account of the events of his own time, our principal surviving source for the first two thirds of Justinian's reign and the one of the most important surviving first hand sources of Byzantine history. Unlike his earlier work the &#145;Historia Arcana&#146; was never meant for publication and claims to provide explanations and additions that the author could not insert into the former for fear of retribution. Parts are so vitriolic, not to say pornographic, that for some time translations from Greek were only available into Latin "The Historia Arcana of Procopius is a puzzling work. The historian himself describes it as a continuation and correction of his eight-book de Bellis, but its tone seems remarkably different from that of the earlier work - polemical, slanderous, even obscene. Nevertheless, the Historia Arcana is useful as a record of opposition to Justinian&#146;s reign, and is the longest and most detailed source for the life of his Empress, Theodora, and that of General Belisarius&#146; wife, Antoninaa. Historians discussing Theodora and/or Antonina must turn to the Historia Arcana, and they must adopt some working assumptions about the accuracy of Procopius&#146; black picture of these women." E. Fisher. &#145;Theodora and Antonina in the Historia Arcana&#146;. Niccolò Alamanni was a Roman antiquarian of Greek origin. He was educated in Rome at the Greek college, founded by Gregory XIII, but was ordained according to the Latin rite. He was appointed secretary to Cardinal Borghese, and afterwards made custodian of the Vatican Libray. He is best remembered as the discoverer and first editor of this important history. BM STC Fr.

The third leaf of this edition contains a dedication to Pope Paul V by the brother of the subject of this biography, D. Francisco Gonzaga, Prince of the Holy Roman Empire and Marques de Castellon. The ninth preliminary leaf consists of a message by the translator "A los hermanos estudiantes de la Compania de Jesus de la Provincia de Castilla" dated Rome, October 26, 1621. In it he mentions that there were six Italian editions, as well as editions in Germany, France, Poland and Portugal, all printed in the national vernaculars. The edition in Portuguese, translated by P. Jeronimo Alvarez, was published in Lisbon by Pedro Craesbeeck, 1610 (see Innocêncio III, 257; X, 127).Aloysius Gonzaga (1568-1591) was born of noble parents and raised among the Medici, at the court of Mantua, and in the Spanish court. In 1585 he renounced his inheritance and became a Jesuit. During his fourth year of studying theology, he tirelessly helped the stricken during a famine and pestilence in Italy, but caught the disease himself and died at the age of 23. He was beatified in 1621 (probably the occasion for this biography) and canonized in 1726.The name of the translator, P. Juan de Acosta, seems to be a pseudonym for P. Juan de Lugo.*** Palau 51542n.

        THE SANCTUARIE OF A TROUBLED SOULE. [and] DAVID'S TEARES

      London: Printed by George Purslow, 1623. n. Hardcover. The Heber Copy in Glorious Gilt by the Binder to the King. mm (). 20 p.l., 193, [17], 250, [2] pp., [1] leaf (blank); 4 p.l., 344 pp. (second work without title page and frontispiece). Two works in one volume, the first work in two parts. SPLENDID 17TH CENTURY ENGLISH CALF, HEAVILY GILT, PROBABLY BY JOHN OR ABRAHAM BATEMAN, covers with a field of many florettes surrounding a large gilt arabesque centerpiece and enclosed by azured cornucopia cornerpieces; flat spine divided into nine panels featuring alternating floral bands and florette rows, marbled endpapers, edges gilt and elaborately gauffered and painted, traces of two pairs of ties. Elaborately allegorical title page engraved by John Payne. Verso of front flyleaf with bookplate of Maurice Burrus dated 1937; recto of rear flyleaf with small "Bibliotheca Heberiana" ink stamp of Richard Heber (see below for both). STC 13008, 12992. Joints and extremities a little rubbed, title page mounted, occasional minor soiling, stains, or light foxing, primarily affecting margins, but still a really excellent copy, the interior generally clean and crisp despite the occasional imperfection, and THE UNRESTORED BINDING ENTIRELY SOLID, SHOWING ONLY MINOR WEAR, AND BRIGHT WITH GILT. Featuring deeply impressed and vigorously gilt decoration, this superb early 17th century binding houses two of the more popular devotional works of the period, written by a man who experienced both sides of royal preferment. Best known to posterity as an historian, Sir John Hayward (1564?-1627) found himself imprisoned after his first work, "The First Part of the Life and Raigne of King Henrie IIII" (1599), offended Queen Elizabeth, as it was dedicated to (and seemed to support) Robert Devereux, 2nd Earl Essex, executed for treason in 1601. While in prison until the queen died in 1603, Hayward seemed to experience a kind of spiritual awakening, the fruits of which were the present "Sanctuarie of a Troubled Soule," first published in 1601 and frequently reprinted. After James I's accession, Hayward worked with William Camden and Sir Robert Cotton under Arundel's patronage; he became master of the chancery in 1616; and he was admitted to Gray's Inn and knighted in 1619. The additional devotional work here, "David's Teares" (1622, the 1623 edition is found here), also went through numerous editions. The present immensely handsome English binding, the various surfaces of which could hardly be more lavishly decorated, seems in the particulars of its design and in its abundance and density of ornamentation likely to be the work of John Bateman (d. 1635) or possibly his son and successor Abraham, both of whom apparently occupied the position of bookbinder to the king. According to Maggs Bros. Catalogue 1075 (see their item #29), the elder Bateman "seems to have run a large bindery" that produced "many bindings with the arms of James I, Henry Prince of Wales, and his brother Charles." In addition, "his blocks are to be found on earlier bindings produced for Queen Elizabeth, Archbishop Matthew Parker, Robert Dudley Earl of Leicester, William Cecil Lord Burghley, Sir Christopher Hatton, and others, [these earlier bindings being] attributed to the shop of the [so-called] MacDurnan Gospels Binder, whose tools Bateman acquired and possibly for whom he worked." The provenance here is as illustrious as the binding is striking. One of the most famous bibliophiles in history, Richard Heber (1773-1833) had perhaps the largest private library ever assembled, encompassing between 200,000 and 300,000 volumes at his death. Although he bought with avidity, Heber was nevertheless discriminating in terms of condition. According to the note on the front flyleaf, Heber likely acquired this item at the sale of Thomas Lloyd's library by Sotheby's on 8 July 1819. Our other known owner, Maurice Burrus (1882-1959), was a tobacco magnate whose world-wide stamp collection was of great renown.

        De Christianis apud Japonios triumphis sive de gravissima ibidem contra Christi fidem persecutione exorta anno MDCXII usq. ad annum MDCXX libri quinque.

      Rader and Raphael Sadeler, Munich 1623 - RARE AND EXTRAORDINARILY ILLUSTRATED FIRST EDITION. 4to. pp. (xvi), 518, (ii). Roman letter. Finely engraved title page depicting St. Francis Xavier and St. Ignatius Loyola, angels above, engraved printer&#146;s device on verso of last, seventeen full page engraving depicting the execution of Christians in Japan (one with revised eng. superimposed), floriated woodcut initials, "Assistentia Germania Societatis Jessu" in contemporary hand at head of title. Light age browning, slight foxing, the occasional marginal thumb mark small tear to lower blank corner of D1. A good, clean copy, with excellent impression of the engravings, in contemporary vellum over thin paste boards, remains of ties, fly leaves loose. First edition of this rare, extraordinarily illustrated, and important account of the persecution of Christians in Japan from 1612 to 1620, a period in which Japan closed itself off from the rest of the world and suppressed Christianity entirely, effectively expelling all Europeans and executing Christians of all denominations. Nicolas Trigault was a distinguished member of the Jesuit mission to China, which he had joined in 1610. He returned to Europe in 1615, traveling on foot through Persia, Arabia and Egypt, to obtain a fresh supply of recruits for the mission. Besides his account of the Jesuit mission to China (the first detailed account of that empire published in Europe) and a summary of the Japanese mission from 1609 to 1612, he completed, just before his departure in 1618 for China (in which he took forty-four missionaries, who had volunteered to follow him) four books concerning the triumphs of the Christians in the recent persecutions in Japan, to which he added, whilst in Goa, a fifth book bringing the narrative up to 1616. The work was printed in 1623, with a small additional text filling in the years from 1617-20 and a list of Japanese martyrs, now numbering two hundred and sixty-eight. There was also added a list of the thirty eight houses and residences (including two colleges, one at Arima, the other at Nagasaki), which the Jesuits had been obliged to abandon, and of five Franciscan, four Dominican and two Augustinian convents from which the inmates had been driven. The work was rapidly translated into French and Spanish. Trigault&#146;s work was almost entirely derived from the annual Jesuit letters sent from Japan and from his conversations with survivors of the persecutions and is the best contemporary account of the great persecutions of Japanese Christians in the early Tokugawa period, providing detailed and vivid accounts of the events. The seventeen extraordinary engravings, depicting the torture and execution of the Japanese Christians, were most probably made by Raphael Sadeler, and are very finely executed and designed. Trigault wrote extensively on the Far East and his account of the persecution of Christians in Japan is a classic of its time. Illustrated editions of the early Jesuit accounts of Japan are extremely uncommon. BM STC Ger. C17th T713. Cordier, BJ 295. Streit V, 1305. De Backer & Sommervogel, VIII, 242.8.

        PORTUGAL &#150; LISBON AND SETÚBAL: ZEECAART VAN DE RIVIER VAN LISBON EN DE BANCKEN VOOR ST. VUES.

      - This attractive sea chart features the central coast of Portugal, including Lisbon and the Tagus Estuary, the coast running over to Cascais, and the Setúbal area. The city of Lisbon is portrayed pictorially, as are the saltpans near Setúbal. Both the mileage bars and the title are framed in fine baroque style cartouches. The present chart was part of Willem Blaeu&#146;s highly important and commercially successful sea atlas, Zeespiegel (1623), which was a vastly enlarged successor of his Het Licht der Zee-vaert (1608). Given Lisbon&#146;s global prominance as a port, this chart was one of the most important components of the atlas. The Zeespiegel remained the ultimate guide to navigation in Europe for some years and was no way superseded until the publication of Jacob Aertsz. Colom&#146;s De Vyerighe Colom (Amsterdam, 1632). The Blaeu Family: The Leading Cartographers of the 17th Century Willem Jansz Blaeu (1571-1638) was, more than any other figure, responsible for the ascension of Dutch cartography to a globally dominant position. Blaeu, originally from Alkmaar, north of Amsterdam, got his start while serving as an apprentice to the legendary Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe at his observatory of Uranienborg, from 1594 to 1596. Upon Willem&#146;s return to the Netherlands, he started a business making charts, globes and nautical instruments. His timing was impeccable, as the Dutch economy, based on maritime trade, was booming and there was an insatiable demand for high quality sea charts and nautical kit. Notably, in 1596, the Dutch made their first voyage to the East Indies, which led the establishment of the Dutch East India Company in 1602. The VOC would be one of Blaeu&#146;s anchor clients and in 1633 he was appointed the Company&#146;s official hydrographer. Blaeu&#146;s sea atlases of European waters, Het Licht der Zee-vaert (1608) and the Zeespiegel (1623) were revolutionary, being the first broadly accurate maritime atlases. Blaeu later went on to create magnificent wall maps, large-format charts and eventually terrestrial atlases, all decorated with the finest Dutch Baroque artistry. Towards the end of his life, Willem Blaeu published the Atlas Novus (1635), a grand production that would be progressively expanded to include new volumes featuring all of the known world in unprecedented detail. The work featured numerous maps, exemplified by the present map, based on carefully selected sources and designed in the finest manner of the contemporary Dutch Baroque style. They became iconic works of cartography readily recognizable to generations of observers. The Atlas Novus and its successor publications were issued in 5 languages and became the most commercially successful works of their kind, setting a new standard for map publishing, emulated by cartographers across Europe. Joan Blaeu (1598-1673) was the most successful mapmaker in the world in the mid-17th Century, during the apogee of Dutch cartography and the fortunes of the Dutch Republic. While he inherited a splendid enterprise from his father Willem, he managed to dramatically grow and expand the business to new heights. His greatest achievement was the world&#146;s largest and most sumptuous atlas, the Atlas Maior, an 11-12 volume Baroque masterpiece (and successor to the Atlas Novus), in which editions of the present map appeared. The Blaeu firm flourished until its workshop was destroyed in a fire in 1672, ending almost three generations of hegemony over the map market. While many would try to emulate the Blaeu&#146;s success, this was never accomplished, and the Blaeu name stands alone at the fore of the Golden Age of Dutch cartography. The present chart, like all charts form the Zeespiegel, is today very rare. It is a critical element of any collection of maps of the Lisbon area or the maritime cartography of Portugal.

With a woodcut frontispiece showing a torture scene, and 2 engraved armorial head-pieces. 19th-century light-brown calf, gold-tooled turn-ins. Rebacked.

      ESTC S100292; Knuttel 4205a; cf. Ogborn, Indian Ink, pp. 120-129. Rare third edition of an account of the "Amboyan massacre". In 1623 the Dutch governor of the island of Amboina had executed 20 men, among them 10 English merchants and factors in service of the English East India Company, the Dutch company's rival in the spice trade. The men were accused of treason against the Dutch governor, and after confession (partly obtained by torture) they were sentenced to death and subsequently beheaded. The English East India Company instructed John Skinner to produce the present account, which was first published in 1624 and is sometimes ascribed to Sir Dudley Digges. Included is an English translation by J. Wing of a Dutch narration of the event (originally published as Waerachtich verhael vande tidingen gecomen wt de Oost-Indien), followed by the English refutation. The pamphlet was reprinted several times and it would play an important role in the outbreak of the first Anglo-Dutch war in 1652, as Cromwell referred to the incident in his declaration of war.Heavily browned and the first leaves waterstained, mounted and shaved. Rebacked, with the original backstrip laid down. A fair copy.

        Anglia, Scotia et Hibernia.

      1623 - Amsterdam, Henricus Hondius, 1623, Latin text edition. Coloured. 335 x 415mm. Repaired tear in the left margin, just entering the printed border; centerfold reinforced on verso, restoration at top and bottom margins not affecting the printed area. Gerard Mercator had already died when this map was first appeared in an atlas, in 1595. His heirs sold his stock to Jodocus Hondius, who issued his first Mercator atlas in 1606. This example comes from an edition published by Jodocus's younger son. The map has been compiled from various sources, each the best available for each region: England and Wales are based on Saxton; the east coast of Ireland is taken from the Laurence Nowell map prepared for William Cecil in the 1560s; and Scotland from Mercator's own wall map from 1564. The strapwork title cartouche and the florid engraving of the names of the seas make this a very striking map. KOEMAN: ME 27A; SHIRLEY: British Isles 180.
