Also, the Commerce with a great blacke Merchant, called Buckor Sano, and his report of the houses covered with Gold, and other strange observations for the good of our owne countrey; set downe as they were collected in travelling, part of the yeares, 1620. and 1621

      3 p.l. (lacking the first leaf, a blank; title a little soiled), 143, 152-66 pp. Small 4to, cont. English limp vellum. London: N. Okes for N. Bourne, 1623. First edition of one of the great early English accounts of the exploration of the interior of Africa and the first to be published separately (others appear in collections); it is a classic account of the search for gold. Ghana, the earliest known empire of the western Sudan, first entered the historical consciousness of North Africa near the end of the eighth century but probably originated long before. Famous to North Africans as the "Land of Gold," Ghana (which, apart from its name, has no historical connection with modern-day Ghana) was said to possess sophisticated methods of administration and taxation, large armies, and a monopoly over the notoriously well-concealed gold mines. Ghana was the main supplier of gold in the trans-Saharan trade, which linked the Mediterranean economies that demanded gold -- and could supply salt -- to the sub-Saharan economies, where gold was abundant. In 1620, "Jobson (fl. 1620-23), merchant and travel writer...was sent as one of the supercargoes on the third of a series of expeditions up the Gambia River undertaken by a group of London entrepreneurs who had in 1619 been granted a crown patent to trade in west Africa. Although the area was already frequented by English traders, the first two expeditions to tap the age-old trans-Saharan gold trade, still known in Europe only from its terminus in the Moorish states of north Africa, had failed. Jobson and his companions reached the Gambia in November 1620, established a base near the mouth, and then sailed some 200 miles up the river until it became too shallow to continue. Jobson, with nine of the crew and some African guides, then went on in an open rowing boat to Tenda (in modern Senegal), where, he had been told, he would find an itinerant gold trader, Buckor Sano. Sano was delighted to meet him. He had no gold then available but promised that if they returned he could easily supply it in exchange for imported trade goods. After ten days Jobson and his party returned, rejoined the ship, and left the Gambia in June 1621... "On his return Jobson published an account of the expedition, hoping to persuade the 'gentlemen adventurers' to send out another. But none was sent. His book, however, entitled The Golden Trade...(1623; reprinted 1904), the first account of the area in English, attracted interest. It is a garrulous, disorganized production, but full of detailed accounts of the country -- the geography, the customs he observed among the inhabitants, and the flora and fauna."-ODNB. There is also much about the mining of gold. A delicious copy of a book of considerable rarity. With a modern note stating this copy comes from the library of the great collector King Manuel of Portugal. ❧ NTSC 14623. .

      Lyon, (Lugduni), Sumpt. Andreae Brugiotti Bibliopolae Romani, (colophon at the end: Lugduni, Ex Chalkographeiôi Ioannis Iullieron, 1623), 1623. Small folio. (XII),XXIII,135,142,(XIX),(1 blank) p.; illustrations. Vellum 30.5 cm (Ref: Hoffmann 3,298; Brunet 4,897; Ebert 17998) (Details: Editio princeps. 7 thongs laced through cover; short title in ink on the back; title in red and black; big engraved printer's mark on the title, a radiant sun, motto: 'flammis ipse suis'; woodcut head & tail pieces and initials; some engravings in the text; text printed in 2 columns, Greek with facing translation into Latin; after the text follow 135 p. with historical and text critical observations by Alemannus; at the end the fragments of the Anekdota drawn from the Suda, and 3 indexes) (Condition: Vellum soiled; frontcover slightly curved; front hinge cracking, but strong; right edge of front flyleaf and of the title somewhat thumbed; small inscription on the verso of the front flyleaf) (Note: This is the editio princeps of the 'Secret History', (Anekdota in Greek, or Arcana Historia in Latin) of the Greek historian Procopius, born in Caesarea in Palestine ca. 500 A.D. He was a member of the staff of Belisarius, the most important general of the emperor Justinian. He accompanied him as a kind of confidant on his campaigns against the Persians (531), the Vandals in the North of Africa (533), and in Italy against the Goths (536/50). During these campaigns he probably took down notes, from which he drew later writing his 'De Bellis', i.e the 'History of the wars of Justinian'. This work, consisting of 8 books, is the main source and often the only one for our knowledge of this age of transition. Procopius was an eyewitness of the events, and in his History he displays a 'achtungswerte Wahrheitsliebe'. (Krumbacher, Gesch. der Byz. Lit., p. 233). He made also use of documents and other accounts. The hero of the first 6 books is his general Belisarius. In the 7th book the author describes how his hero Belisarius became gradually a disappointment to him. He also critizes the mismanagement of the finances by the emperor Justinian and his wife the empress Theodora, which is overstretching the resources of the empire. Book 8, described by Procopius as 'poikilè', i.e 'varia' deals with the aftermath of the 3 wars. Nowadays the 'Secret History' is considered to be a separate work of Procopius, whereas Nicolaus Alemannus presents it as the 9th book of the 'History of the wars of Justinian'. In the 'Secret History', which covers the same period als the first 7 books, Procopius changes his tune. From great politics he turns to the ugly politics of court scandal, where the dark side of Justinian is exposed. The book is in fact a libel against the emperor and his wife, and sometimes also against his former hero Belisarius. 'It is a virulent, scurrilous, and often scabrous attack upon the whole policy of Justinian, who is blamed for everything from barbarian invasions and financial insolvency to floods and earthquakes' (OCD, 2nd ed. p. 881). The main argument is that Justinian and Theodora have ruined the empire, because of their wars and mismanagement. The difference between the rational 'History of the wars of Justinian' and this demonizing libel, full of gossip and pornographic defilement has led historians to believe that this product of hate and revenge was not written by the 'honest' historian Procopius. Nowadays it is generally accepted that Procopius is the author. (OCD s.v. Procopius, NP s.v. Prokopios). Procopius' work is written in a clear and classicizing style, with many echoes of earlier historians, especially Thucydides, and it became an example for later byzantine historians. Not much is known about the editor Nicolaus Alemannus. He was Librarian of the Bibliotheca Vaticana, and Ostrogorsky calls him a Greek. He follows here 'Zedlers Grosses vollständiges Universallexicon', vol. 1, col. 1121. Zedler is however more cautious, because Alemannus, or, he says, Alamannus 'soll nach der meisten Meynung von Geburth ein Grieche gewesen seyn'. Alemannus was an exponent of the first phase of the renewed scientific interest in byzantine culture of European Humanism at the end of the 16th and the beginning of the 17th century. This phase is characterized by the editing and translation into Latin of byzantine sources. (G. Ostrogorsky, Gesch. des Byz. Staates, München 1963, p. 2) In his 'Ad Lectorem' Alemannus declares that 2 manuscripts of this not yet published work of Procopius were found hidden in some corner of the Vatican Library, both in bad condition. One other of the 'Arcana Historia', once brought by Catharina de Medici to France, was nowhere to be found, he tells, and another was lost during a shipwreck. He continues that copies of the first 8 books circulated during Procopius' lifetime, and that he offered a copy to Justinian himself. He had to keep his manuscript of the 'Arcana Historia' hidden as long as the emperor was alive. Alemannus confesses that he left out the less sophisticated (he means saucy) passages that didnot suit the 'modestia' and 'gravitas' of his time. The worth of the commentary of Alemannus was acknowledged by its incorporation two hundred years later in Niebuhrs Bonner Corpus (Corpus scriptorum historiae Byzantinae, CSHB, 1828-1897) (Collation: á-6, é-4, í-4, ó-4; A - R-4, a - u-4) (Photographs on request)

      Avignon, Imprimerie de I. Bramereau 1623 - in-4, [6] ff. n. ch. (titre-frontispice gravé, titre, dédicace à Louis XIII), 278 pp., interversion des cahiers C et D, sans manque, avec 8 (sur 9) planches gravées à l'eau-forte par le graveur portugais Luiz Palma, manque le portrait du Roi, vélin souple à lactes, dos lisse muet, dans emboîtage moderne de demi-toile cerise, pièce de titre crème (reliure de l'époque). Plats un peu salis. Unique édition de cet ouvrage vraiment peu commun, qui relate les cérémonies et détaille les ouvrages édifiés à l'occasion de l'entrée solennelle de Louis XIII à Avignon. L'attribution à Thomas de Berton de Crillon (un des consuls d'Avignon cette année-là) est de Barbier : il est possible qu'elle provienne d'une lecture paresseuse du titre. Depuis les lettres patentes de février 1535, les sujets avignonnais du pape jouissaient également de la qualité de régnicoles ; les Rois de France pouvaient effectuer dans la ville des entrées, même en-dehors des périodes d'ocuppation du territoire (pour faire pression sur la Cour de Rome). Les 8 planches représentant les arcs de triomphe et autres constructions sont l'oeuvre du graveur portugais Liuz Palma, dont la manière reproduit de façon exacte le maniérisme baroque ibérique : elles ont de fait une facture très surprenante pour un oeil habitué à l'architecture très classique des élévations et vues "à la française". Il manque le portrait du roi comme très souvent. Ruggieri 426 & 427. Exemplaire de Boissier de Sauvages, avec ex-libris manuscrit. En l'absence de précision, il est difficile de dire à quel membre de cette famille provençale rattacher cette provenance. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Chronicon Originis et Fundationis Monasterij Scheirn ord S. Benedicti

      London - Typis Gregorij Hnlin 1623 - A scarce edition of this chronicle of the Benedictine monks of the ScheyernAbbey (Kloster-Scheyern) in Germany. Scheyern Abbey, formerly also Scheyern Priory (Kloster Scheyern) is a house of the Benedictine Order in Scheyern in Bavaria. The monastery at Scheyern was established in 1119 as the final site of the community originally founded in around 1077 at Bayrischzell by Countess Haziga of Aragon, wife of Otto II, Count of Scheyern, the ancestors of the Wittelsbachs. The first monks were from Hirsau Abbey, of which the new monastery was a priory, founded as it was against the background of the Investiture Controversy and the Hirsau Reforms. The original site proved unsuitable for a number of reasons, including difficulties with water supply, and the monastery moved in 1087 to Fischbachau. When that site too proved unsuitable, they moved to Petersberg, in 1104. In Latin. The dedication is to the Holy Cross and the Assumption of the Virgin Mary: the abbey has had in its possession since 1180 a relic of the Holy Cross from Jerusalem, and is still today a place of pilgrimage for this reason. By the 13th century the abbey had already gained a reputation for its school of illumination and its scriptorium. Including decorative title page. With monastic bookplate to front pastedown. Condition: In a vellum binding. Externally worn, with dampstaining to the boards and slight loss in places. Backstrip lifting. Internally, firmly bound. Ink inscription and library label to front pastedown. Pages are quite bright, with some scattered light spotting throughout. Overall: FAIR. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Virginiae item et Floridae Americae provinciarum nova descriptio

      Hondius-Janssonius, [Amsterdam 1623 - 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. The map is embellished with illustrations borrowed from Le Moyne and White, including native towns, a native king and queen and a canoe. The title cartouche is a handsome three part figure with the two village illustrations on either side of the title. Koeman Me27A; Cumming, 26 (pl.20); Burden 151; Goss, 23; Howgego L70 (Laudonnière), R36 (Ribault). Copper-plate engraving. Centerfold strengthened, repaired tear upper margin, otherwise excellent.

With Observations Natural and Experimental for the Prolonging of Life: This being the Third Part of the Great Unstauration).

      Io. Haviland, Londini 1623 - TP + [1]-[3] = preface + 1-410 + 407-454 (repeating 407-410 as called for in Gibson), small Octavo. Gibson 147.Title framed in double rule, text framed in single rule. With blanks at Aa4 (pp. [369-370]) and Cc6 (pp. [405-406]). A fascinating and influential work that was to constitute the third book of Bacon's projected "Instauratio Magna", a multi-part work which, though never completed, had the overall aim of creating a new system of philosophy and extending man's dominion over nature. This third part of the work was to be devoted to the study of the prolongation of life - a topic that was close to Bacon's heart as he saw this objective as one of the highest goals of his new, operative science. If achieved, it would make a partial recovery of what mankind had lost with the Fall. Historia Vitae & Mortis contains a collection of materials that are subjected to the scientific method of induction. It is made up of a series of essays devoted to all aspects of the maintenance and prolongation of life, including medicines and herbs, food and drink, sleep and exercise, temperature and climate, occupations, baths and hygiene. In this book, Bacon recommends life in caves and on mountains and suggest that frequent blood-letting may help to renew the body fluids. Contemporary vellum with smooth spine. Lovely contemporary hand-lettered title on spine ("F. Baron historia vitæ et mortis ?"). Some light soiling to exterior and slight wear to three of the four corners but overall quite lovely. Small piece missing from the top of the front free endpaper (½" to 0" deep by 3" wide). Some signatures water stained (before printing?), approximately 3" x 3½" triangle in lower right corner: affecting signatures B [very lightly], R, S, Z [very lightly], Cc, Dd, Ee [very lightly].

        Orbis Terrae Compiosa Descriptio

      Amsterdam 1623 - Gerard Mercator (1512-1594) / Jodocus Hondius (1563-1612) “Orbis Terrae Compiosa Descriptio” From Atlas Amsterdam: c. 1623-1630 Hand-colored copperplate engraving 18” x 22 ½”; 29 1/2” x 33 1/2” framed For nearly sixty years, during the most important and exciting period in the story of modern mapmaking, Gerard Mercator was the supreme cartographer, his name, second only to Ptolemy, synonymous with forms of map projection still in use today. His influence transformed land surveying and his research and calculations lead him to break away from Ptolemy’s conception of the size and outline of the continents, developing a projection that drastically reduced the longitudinal length of Europe and Asia and altered the shape of the Old World as visualized in the early 16th century. Although not the inventor of this type of projection, Mercator was the first to apply it to navigational charts in such a form that compass bearing could be plotted on charts in straight lines, thereby providing seamen with a solution to an age-old problem of navigation at sea. Mercator’s innovations, including the aptly named Mercator projection, continue to be employed in maps produced today, 400 years later. The geographer died in 1594 after publishing just a few parts of the atlas that he had spent decades preparing. In 1604, after the death of Gerard’s son Rumold, the plates for his maps were sold to the great Amsterdam cartographer, Jodocus Hondius, who brought out the first of the so-called “Mercator-Hondius” editions in 1606. Hondius supplemented the original 107 maps with 39 new maps compiled under his own supervision, bringing the total number to 146, and had the original text expanded by Petrus Montanus. The new maps were of extremely high quality, and were for the most part devoted to parts of the world, such as America, that had been neglected by Mercator. Hondius’s first edition of the general atlas proved instantly popular, selling out within a year. Hondius continued to augment and perfect the atlas over the following years, constantly adding new maps and incorporating new discoveries and corrections. The first French edition came out in 1607, with a translation of the text by the historian Henri Lancelot-Voisin de la Popliniere. This world map is thought to have been published in the 1620s, as the title on the top edge shows the cracks that had developed in the copperplate in this time frame (Shirley, Mapping of the World). Unlike the work of Abraham Ortelius, a contemporary (and equally celebrated) cartographer, Mercator’s maps were original. Ortelius engaged in the reduction and generalization of already existing maps, while Mercator, with his sense that scientific work should be original and new, checked the current knowledge of the earth’s topography against its fundamental sources and drew maps in an original manner. Mercator was the most skilled mapmaker of his time, spearheading the Golden Age of Dutch cartography. His maps were unsurpassed in terms of accuracy, and no less attention was given to their beauty. Other cartographers looked inevitably to the innovations of Mercator when compiling their own maps, and the reasons for such tribute are clear in every map contained in this spectacular atlas. Vividly hand-colored, it brought distant and exotic places to European viewers with outstanding clarity and immediacy, describing not just the terrain, but also including images of flora and fauna, as well as native peoples. Fearsome sea monsters and European sailing ships adorn the seas, while the glorious Baroque cartouches add gracefully curving architectural elements to the images. This beautifully-colored double hemisphere map of the world represents a great opportunity to acquire the most spectacular map from this landmark publication by the foremost cartographer in history.

        Notitia Dignitatum Utriusque Imperii Orientis Scilicet et Occidentis Ultra Arcadii Honoriique Tempora.

      Stéphane Gamonet, Genève 1623 - Panciroli Guido (1523-1599) ~ Notitia Dignitatum Utriusque Imperii Orientis Scilicet et Occidentis Ultra Arcadii Honoriique Tempora ~A Genève, Stéphane Gamonet, 1623 In-fol., 7 ff., 271 pp., 6 ff. [index], 196 pp., 39 pp, 1 f., reliure constellée de fleurs de néflier encadrés dans une riche dentelle dorée, avec au centre de chacun des plats les armes de la maison d'Arenberg: trois feuilles de néflier de cinq feuilles d'or, le dos est couvert de fleurs, les nerfs sont décorés et le titre doré. Notitia dignitatum utriusque imperii est un manuscrit latin illustré écrit au Ve siècle et qui est une référence essentielle pour connaître la constitution de l'empire romano-grec de cette époque. C'est un tableau du territoire que comprenait alors l'empire, et des emplois civils et militaires dont se composait son administration. C'est dans cet ouvrage que l'on découvre des informations importantes sur le maillage des manufactures (les boucliers sont fabriqués essentiellement à Crémone, les armures à Mantoue, les épées, les haches et des lances à Vérone.), sur les costumes, notamment de l'empereur, sur la topographie et la géographie des peuples, les distinctions et les emplois, les cérémonies, les armes et machines de guerre, les symboles et les insignes, Rome, Constantinople, l'Afrique, Chypre, etc. Rares sont les ouvrages d'une telle richesse archéologique. De plus, cette belle édition est illustrée d'un grand nombre de gravures sur bois dans le texte qui font de cet ouvrage une source iconographique remarquable. L'élégante mise en page sur deux colonnes est rehaussée de lettrines et culs-de-lampe. Reliure exceptionnelle Guido Panciroli (1523-1599) est un jurisconsulte et antiquaire italien né à Reggio. Il embrassa dans ses études plusieurs genres de connaissances et était d'une garnde érudition sur la science des lois. Il n'avait que dix-huit ans, et étudiait encore le droit à Padoue, quand le sénat de Venise le nomma second professeur des institutes, dans la même université. Il parvint, en 1556, à la seconde chaire du droit romain. Quinze ans après, il la remplissait encore. Quelques passe-droits que le sénat lui avait faits l'engagèrent alors à accepter, dans l'université de Turin, la chaire de premier professeur du droit romain, qui lui avait été refusée trois fois à Padoue. Le duc de Savoie, Émanuel-Philibert, et son fils Charles-Émanuel, comblèrent pendant neuf ans Panciroli de faveurs et de libéralités, mais le climat changeant et souvent froid du Piémont lui était contraire. Il perdit presque entièrement un œil et l'autre était aussi menacé. Le sénat, qui le regrettait, profita de cette circonstance, et lui offrit, avec de forts appointements, la chaire qu'il avait tant souhaitée. Il céda, retourna, eu 1582, à Padoue, y professa de nouveau avec le plus grand succès, et mourut le 1er juin 1599, âgé de soixante-seize ans.

Eighteenth-century dark green morocco, smooth spine, double gilt rules, gilt lettered direct, gilt floral tool at head and tail, sides with double gilt rules, pink silk endpapers, gilt edges. With a few stamps on the verso of the plates of the Lamoignon library, established in the seventeenth century by Guillaume de Lamoignon (1617–1677); circular bookplate of Sir Henry Hope Edwards (1829–1900) to front pastedown; leather library label of Robert Hoe (1839–1909) on front free endpaper verso; facing armorial bookplate of C. L. F. Robinson (1874–1916), $40 at his sale in 1917. Joints a little worn and starting at head and tail, With engraved title and 50 copper-plates by Lasne, Briot, Robel, Mathews and Crispijn van de Passe only, each with tissue overlay; without the text. A fine volume with the suite of engravings only from the first Thiboust edition of the popular ancient Greek romance, the Aethiopica of Heliodorus of Emesa. Jacques Amyot's translation of Heliodorus, first published in 1547, introduced the work to France, where it long retained its popularity. The iconography of the Aethiopica is of considerable interest. The plot turns on the circumstance that a black woman, the Ethiopian queen Persinna, had borne a white daughter, Chariclea, because she had been gazing at a painting of Andromeda at the time of Chariclea's conception.
