        De formato foetu liber singularis aeneis figuris exornatus epistolae duae anatomicae. Tractatus de arthritide opera posthumastudio. . .

      Padua: Martini et Pasquati, 1626. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. Folio (410 x 260 mm). [8], 104 pp., including 9 full-page engraved illustrations by Giulio Casserio, drawn and engraved by Odoardo Fialetti and Francesco Valesio, woodcut device on title-page. Signatures: a-b2 A-2C2, lacking text leaf Bb2 (added in good facsimile). Recent half vellum. Text little browned and soiled in margins, frequent ink smudges (with some pager damage caused by ink corrosion), brown spotting, some edge fraying and a few worm holes in blank margins to the end, final leaf with chipped margins backed by paper. ----THE RARE FIRST EDITION. Eimas, Heirs of Hippocrates 413; NLM/Krivatsy 11295; Wellcome I, 6038; Choulant, pp. 223-228. His work on the development of the human fetus, De Formatu Foetu, was left in unillustrated manuscript on Spiegel's death. It was edited by his son-in-law, another physician named Liberalis Crema, who illustrated the 1626 edition with 9 copperplates purchased from Casserio's grandson. These plates were drawn by the late-Mannerist Italian painter and printmaker, Odoardo Fialetti (1573-1638) and engraved by Francesco Valesio (see also #3, Casserio). They depict the pregnant uterus, placenta and fetus and are among Fialetti's most beautiful anatomical engravings. "Four of them represent entire female figures with the abdomen cut open." (Eimas, Heirs of Hippocrates). "The work was published at Crema's expense and is rare." (Choulant, p.226). After the death of Giulio Casseri, Adriaan van de Spiegel (or Adrianus Spigelius) from Brussels (1578-1625) was appointed professor at the University of Padua in 1616, where he took over the chair of anatomy from Casseri. "The ordinary lecture of anatomy and surgery was given to [him, but] Fabricius maintained the supraordinary role. Spigelius was also appointed a Knight of St. Mark in 1623, and died in Padua in 1625. In De semitertiana libri quatuor (1624), Spigelius gave the first detailed description of malaria. [...] Spigelius described the caudate lobe of the liver (Spigelius' lobe) and was also the first to describe the lateral ventral hernia (Spigelian hernia) through the linea semilunaris (Spigelius' line), a curved tendinous line along the lateral border of the rectus muscle. Spigelius was also a botanist, and the genus Spigelia derives its name from him. (A. Porzionato et al., The Anatomical School of Padua. The Anatomical Record, Vol. 295, no. 6, 2012, p.908). Good.

Dordrecht, Abraham Andriesz (colophon: Dordrecht, printed by Nicolaes de Vries, 1658). Small 8vo (14.5 x 9.5 cm). With engraved frontispiece showing two gentlemen visiting a notary's office. Contemporary vellum.

      - Pitlo, Notarisboeken, p. 330 & pp. 62-71; STCN (1 incomplete copy); WorldCat (2 copies). Third edition, revised and enlarged, of a rare practical handbook for practicing notaries, written by Simon van Leeuwen (1626-1682), the most famous Dutch lawyer of the 17th century after Hugo de Groot (Grotius). It incorporates a dictionary of more than 4000 technical terms, many borrowed or adapted from Latin, giving simple definitions in common Dutch. Unlike the second edition, the present third edition explicitly notes that it has been newly revised, improved and expanded. It teaches all theoretical and practical knowledge needed in a notary's office, presented in the form of questions and answers, like a catechism, but sometimes also citing sources. Van Leeuwen's approach is refreshingly anti-bureaucratic.From the library of Eeltjo van Beresteyn (1876-1948). With a 1770 owner's inscription, some underlining and an occasional pencilled note. With a small chip in the frontispiece, a few pages with minor smudges or marginal defects, but still in good condition. Binding somewhat soiled and back board wrinkled, no endleaves. Rare practical handbook, essential for historical research in any field.

        Nuevo Descubrimiento del gran Cathayo, ò Reynos de Tibet, por el Padre Antonio de Andrade, de la Compañia de Iesus, Portugues, en el año de 1624 [caption title]

      Lisbon: por Mateo Piñeiro, 1626. Quarto. (7 1/2 x 5 5/8 inches). Collation: A-E4, F3 (ll.1-22 text, with caption title and 8-line woodcut initial at start of text on recto of l.1; [1 leaf] "licencias" on recto, verso blank). Modern blue morocco-backed marbled paper-covered boards, spine lettered in gilt The very rare second printing of the first authoritative printed account of a European traveller's visit to Tibet. The first Spanish-language edition, printed a few months after the first edition which was in Portuguese. This edition is not Cordier, and OCLC records only a single example: the Bernardo Mendel copy now in the Indiana University library. Antonio de Andrade (1580-1634) was a Portuguese Jesuit missionary who entered the order in 1596. From 1600 to 1624 he was the principal missionary in the Indies. In 1624, with the support of the Moghul emperor, he set out for Tibet, hoping to make contact with a reported trans-Himalayan Christian community. Travelling north to the upper Ganges and then to Mana, on the present-day border of Tibet, he continued on past local resistance to the state of Guge, where he encountered his first Buddhists. Andrade successfully convinced the King to allow the teaching of Christianity, and returned to Agra, where he wrote the present letter to his superiors, relating his journey and his experiences. Andrade would ultimately return to Tibet twice, consecrating a church at Tsaparang in 1626. Andrade's work is important as being the first undoubtedly authentic first-hand description of Tibet by a European: the 14th-century visit of Odorico de Pordenone remains disputed. It was very popular and quickly went through a number of editions. "Throughout Catholic Europe this 'discovery' (so proclaimed by the title of the work, though Andrade never called it that himself) was hailed as a great victory for the faith and as possible aid in circumventing the dangers from the Protestant fleets on the lengthy sea route from India to China....Through Andrade's book and his later letters and those of others, Europe learned more about Tibet's location, size, political divisions, religion and customs. Lach Asia in the Making of Europe III, pp.338-339, 1773-1775; Sommervogel I, 329.1; cf. Cordier Sinica IV,2898-9 (1st edition in Portuguese and Madrid Spanish-language edition of 1627); Streit V272; Howgego I, A88.

        Hooghberoemde Joodsche historien ende boecken. Noch Egesippus vande Ellendighe verstoringe der Stadt Jerusalem. Van nieus met schone figuren verciert, ende met nootwendighe anteikeningen en summarien verrijkt.

      Thick folio. Amsterdam: (Jan Jacob Palensteyn für) Jan Everts z. Cloppenburgh, 1626. Thick folio, engraved title-page, (2), 338, (13), 77, (3) ff. With 103 woodcuts in the text by Christoffel van Sichem. Occasional damp-staining, title-page repaired with slight loss to image at corners. Old calf antique, gilt panelled backstrip with raised bands by Trevor Lloyd. First Dutch edition, translated from the German by Everard Bommelius. The first illustrated edition with these cuts appeared in 1611 and the first collected edition of the “Works” was printed in 1544. “Christoffel van Sichem II (c1581-1658) ... there is a gracefulness, a narrative, illustrative inventiveness about the woodcuts of Chistoffel II that surpass the works of his father. That his woodcuts which are all cut without crosshatching, tend to run to smaller, more intimate formats is perhaps only an outward criterion of the son's more bookish inclinations... There can be no doubt that, considering the quality of his work, this artist must be given a high rank among the book illustrators of the seventeenth century,” Lehmann-Haupt, Introduction to The Woodcut of the 17th century, 1977. “The works of Josephus provide crucial information about the First Jewish-Roman War and also represent important literary source material for understanding the context of the Dead Sea Scrolls and late Temple Judaism. Josephan scholarship in the 19th and early 20th century became focused on Josephus' relationship to the sect of the Pharisees. It consistently portrayed him as a member of the sect, and as a traitor to the Jewish nation—a view which became known as the classical concept of Josephus. In the mid-20th century a new generation of scholars challenged this view and formulated the modern concept of Josephus. They consider him a Pharisee, but restore his reputation in part as patriot and a historian of some standing. In his 1991 book, Steve Mason argued that Josephus was not a Pharisee but an orthodox Aristocrat-Priest who became part of the Temple Establishment as a matter of deference, and not by willing association. The works of Josephus include material about individuals, groups, customs, and geographical places. Some of these, such as the city of Seron, receive no mention in the surviving texts of any other ancient authority. His writings provide a significant, extra-Biblical account of the post-Exilic period of the Maccabees, the Hasmonean dynasty, and the rise of Herod the Great. He refers to the Sadducees, Jewish High Priests of the time, Pharisees and Essenes, the Herodian Temple, Quirinius' census and the Zealots, and to such figures as Pontius Pilate, Herod the Great, Agrippa I and Agrippa II, John the Baptist, James the brother of Jesus, and a centuries-long disputed reference to Jesus. Josephus represents an important source for studies of immediate post-Temple Judaism and the context of early Christianity.” Poortman II, 219.

        Carte de la Hongrie et des Pays qui en dependoient autrefois.

      Artist: L Isle de Guillaume ( - 1757 ) Paris; issued in: Paris; date: 1745 1626 - - technic: Copper print; colorit: colored; condition: Very good; size in cm : 47 x 65 - description: Map shows Hungary, Transilvania, Bosnia, Dalmatia, Sebia, Bulgaria, Walachia, Moldavia. - Vita of the artist: "Guillaume De L isle (1626- 1757) Paris, was a French cartographer known for his popular and accurate maps of Europe and the newly explored Americas and Africa. De L isle was admitted into the French Académie Royale des Sciences, an institution financed by the French state. After that date, he signed his maps with the title of ?Géographe de l?Académie? Five years later, he moved to the Quai de l?Horloge in Paris, a true publishing hub where his business prospered. De L isle?s ascension through the ranks culminated in 1718 when he received the title of Premier Géographe du Roi. His new office consisted in teaching geography to the Dauphin, King Louis XIV?s son, a task for which he received a salary. De L sle?s reputation as a man of science probably helped .This supports the claim of the historian Mary Sponberg Pedley, who says ?once authority was established, a geographer?s name might retain enough value to support two or three generations of mapmakers? In De L isle?s case, it could be said that his accomplishments surpassed his father?s. Up to that point, he had drawn maps not only of European countries, such as Italy, Spain, Germany, Great Britain, Poland, and regions such as the Duchy of Burgundy, but he had also contributed to the empire?s claims to recently explored continents of Africa and the Americas.Like many cartographers of these days, De L isle did not travel with the explorers and elaborated the maps mostly in his office. The quality of his maps depended on a solid network that would provide him first-hand information. Given the family?s reputation and his own, De L isle had access to fairly recent accounts of travellers who were coming back from the New World, which gave him an advantage over his competitors. Being a member of the Académie, he was also aware of recent discoveries, especially in astronomy and measurement. When he could not confirm the accuracy of his source, he would indicate it clearly on his maps. For instance, his Carte de la Louisiane shows a river that the baron of Lahontan claimed he discovered, but no one else could validate it, so Delisle warned the viewer that its actual existence was in doubt. De L isle 's search for exactitude and intellectual honesty entangled him in a legal dispute in 1700 with Jean-Baptiste Nolin, a fellow cartographer. Noticing Nolin had used details that were considered original from his Map of the World, De L isle dragged Nolin in court to prove his plagiarism. In the end, Delisle managed to convince the jury of scientists that Nolin only knew the old methods of cartography and therefore that he had stolen the information from his manuscript. Nolin's maps were confiscated and he was forced to pay the court costs.The scientificity of the work produced by the De L isle family contrasted with the workshop of Sanson. While Sanson knowingly published outdated facts and mistakes, De L isle strived to present up-to-date knowledge." [Attributes: Signed Copy]

      A Rome, a Instance di Dominique Sforzini à la Victoire en place Navone, par François Corbelletti, 1626. - in-12. 16pp. 6ff. pp.7-26. pp.9-232. 40pp. Demi-veau à coins, dos lisse orné de filets dorés (fraîche reliure c.1800). Edition Originale de ce très rare manuel trilingue, publié par Domenico Sforzino qui s'en explique dans un avis aux lecteurs: "Sçaichant que le R.P. Antoine Fabre avoit cest grammaire en trois langues, sçavoir Françoise, Italiene, et Espagnolle, très désirée, j'ay avec toute industrie et par tous les moyens tasché l'avoir entre les mains, pour mieux pouvoir embellir et orner vos estudes, et il y a long temps qu'auroit esté mise en lumière si le stampateur qui l'avoit commencée l'eusse peu poursuivre mais lon ny a peu faire autre. Ce que justifiera la diversité des Caractères ". En effet, l'impression du volume semble avoir été particulièrement chaotique si l'on peut en juger par les nombreuses erreurs de pagination, répétitions de texte et variantes de caractères qui le parsèment. Les exemplaires ayant été assemblés à partir de plusieurs jeux de feuillets, imprimés séparément par plusieurs imprimeurs, il existe de nombreuses variantes et le nombre de feuillets préliminaires peut varier d'un exemplaire à l'autre. Notre exemplaire est identique à celui décrit par le catalogue collectif italien. On trouve à la fin, avec une pagination séparée, un recueil de dialogues à l'usage des voyageurs, donnant un exemple de conversation entre un voyageur et un garçon hôtelier, entre deux amis, entre un messager et un marchand, entre un rentier et un receveur, etc. Ce petit ouvrage très rare s'ouvre sur 3 pages de titre (française, espagnole et italienne), et on le trouve répertorié au NUC et à la Bibliothèque Nationale d'après son titre italien. Marges un peu courtes par endroits. Très bon exemplaire. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Les tables de directions et profections de Jean de Mont-Royal

      1626 - deux parties en 1 volume, A Paris, [par Fleury Bourriquant, pour l'auteur] en l'Isle du Palais à l'Image Saint Michel, 1626, in-8, deux parties en 1 volume, [18]-120-248 pages, vélin de l'époque, dos lisse avec titre manuscrit à l'encre à l'époque, traces de liens, Au colophon : "Achevé d'imprimer en Décembre 1625, par Fleury Bourriquant, rue Daulphine, aux fraiz du sieur Henrion, professeur ès mathématiques, demeurant en l'Isle du Palais". Nombreuses figures sur bois dans le texte. La seconde partie, comportant les Tables elles-mêmes, a son titre propre, orné d'une représentation du système de Ptolémée et portant la date de 1625. Première édition française des Tabulae directionum de l'astronome et mathématicien franconien Regiomontanus (1436-1476) données par Henrion et augmentées de nouvelles tables. Les 31 problèmes de Regiomontanus sont très longuement commentés par l'éditeur français, qui introduit l'ouvrage par une longue préface adressée aux "lecteurs", dans laquelle il explicite la lecture et l'utilisation de ces tables hétérogène et homogène, ainsi que la manière de les utiliser pour rendre compte des triangles rectangles. Les Tables de direction, établies avec l'aide de l'astronome polonais Martin Bylica, furent initialement composées pour un usage astrologique. Elles furent imprimées pour la première fois en 1490 et connurent onze éditions jusqu'en 1626. Regiomontanus y inclut également une table des tangentes, qu'il ne désigne par sous ce nom, pour les angles supérieurs à 90°, et fournit ainsi le modèle qui a encore cours aujourd'hui. De Regiomontanus, on ne sait rien avant qu'il ne rejoigne, en 1450, l'université de Vienne. Il fut l'ami et le compagnon d'étude de Peuerbach, dont il reprit, à sa mort en 1461, le travail commandé par le cardinal Bessarion, destiné à rendre en latin la grande syntaxe mathématique (Almageste) de Ptolémée : l'Epitome ainsi achevé ne sera pourtant pas publié avant 1496. Regiomontanus fut un calculateur brillant et prolifique ; il publia de nombreux éphémérides et tables, à l'instar des présentes Tables de direction. Bel exemplaire de cette oeuvre rare, dans condition d'origine, provenant de la bibliothèque du cartographe des Alpes Paul Helbronner, avec son étiquette ex-libris au contreplat. Au titre, cachet de la bibliothèque de l'astrologue Juevno, "Paris 1891". Page de titre agrémentée, au XIXe siècle, d'une singulière composition arrangée autour de l'ornement typographique de la sphère armillaire : elle comprend des rehauts à l'encre et à l'aquarelle, ainsi que des petits collages, l'ensemble étant en partie destiné à masquer deux cachets ronds. Contrecollée au verso du titre : une carte gravée de la Lune provenant d'une édition de la Connaissance du temps. Manque en tête du dos, petite tache sur le plat supérieur et un léger accroc au plat inférieur. Lalande, p. 188. DSB XI, p. 349 et suiv. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      11, 8 x 17,6 cm, Tadell. Im Bild signiert(auf der Schmalseite der Sitzfläche des linken Spielers). - Bezaubernde detailreiche Szene von 4 Karten spielenden Männern in Innenraum.Jan van Kessel (1626 in Antwerp - 1679 in idem) was a Flemish painter of still lifes, who was the father of another painter with the same name Jan van Kessel, and Jan Brueghel the Elder's grandson. He was the son of Hieronymus van Kessel and Paschasia Brueghel, and was a pupil of his father and his uncle Jan Brueghel the Younger. He became a member of the Antwerp Guild of Saint Luke in 1644 as "blomschilder" (flower painter). He was influenced by Daniel Seghers. According to Houbraken, he was famous in his lifetime for the neatness of his flower paintings and Cornelis de Bie wrote a poem about him.He specialized in small-scale pictures of subjects gleaned from the natural world such as floral still lifes and allegorical series showing animal kingdoms, the four elements, the senses, or the parts of the world. Obsessed with picturesque detail, van Kessel worked from nature and used illustrated scientific texts as sources for filling his pictures with objects represented with almost scientific accuracy.Jan van Kessel painted many animals (especially insects) and flowers, as well as some mythological and biblical scenes. his choice of subject leaned towards those which included animals and plants. His pupils were his sons Jan and Ferdinand van Kessel.[1]

Camden, historian and herald whose Britannia made its début on 2 May 1586, on his thirty-fifth birthday; the squat octavo volume was dedicated to Lord Burghley. Of Camden's published work the Britannia has had the greatest and most lasting impact. It received immediate recognition when it appeared, and its successive, enlarged editions of 1587, 1590, 1594, 1600 (dedicated to Queen Elizabeth) and 1607 (dedicated to King James) and its English translation of 1610 by Philemon Holland attest to its popularity. A contemporary translation by Richard Knolles, once in Camden's possession, survives in manuscript in the Bodleian Library as MS Ashmole 849. It was also published in Frankfurt in 1590 and 1610. Throughout the decades after its first appearance Camden continued to revise the text and experiment with the work's format and apparatus, and he worked closely with Holland on the 1610 translation. In spite of the author's collaboration, however, the translation is often inaccurate and takes liberties with the material, and for this reason is regarded as inferior to Edmund Gibson's translation of 1695. By 1607, the year of its last Latin edition in Camden's lifetime, published in folio and containing an index, maps by Saxton and Norden, and engravings of coins, monuments, and topographical sites, it had evolved into an impressive and editorially sophisticated work of scholarship. It continued to be edited and translated during the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, the major editions being those of Gibson in 1695 and 1722, and Richard Gough in 1786 and 1806. See ODNB.

        Golden Fleece

      1626 - VAUGHAN, William. The Golden Fleece Divided into Three Parts, under which are discovered the Errours of Religion, the Vices and Decayes of the Kingdome, and lastly the Wayes to get Wealth, and to restore Trading so much complayned of. Transported from Cambrioll Colchos, out of the southermost Part of the Iland [sic], commonly called the Newfoundland, by Orpheus Junior, for the generall and perpetuall Good of Great Britaine. London, Francis Williams, 1626. Square octavo, contemporary limp vellum recased, hand-lettered spine title, later endpapers. Housed in a custom clamshell box. $16,500.Scarce first edition of this early allegorical promotion of settlements in Newfoundland, "one of the earliest contributions to English literature from America"&#157; (Baer)."Deeply concerned about the poor economic conditions prevailing in Wales," William Vaughan "became interested in overseas colonization as a means for improving the lot of his countrymen. As a result he decided to try to plant a colony in Newfoundland, largely because it was easily accessible, and also because it possessed an established fishery. In 1616 he purchased from the Newfoundland Company the part of the Avalon Peninsula to the south of a line from Caplin Bay across to Placentia Bay, and decided to name the colony 'New Cambriol.' In the following year, Vaughan set out a few ill-prepared colonists to the harbour of Aquaforte, where they spent the winter huddled in cabins built by migratory fishermen for summer use. In 1618, Vaughan hired Richard Whitbourne to bring colonists and provisions to the settlement, and appointed him governor".moving it to a better location at Renews". but in the end only six colonists spent the winter of 1619 at Renews, and the settlement was abandoned in the following year". Vaughan did his best to promote Newfoundland settlement by publication of his somewhat fanciful book The Golden Fleece" (Howgego). "The work is one of the earliest contributions to English literature from America, and was intended to advertise Vaughan's colony. It is a queer fantasy in prose and verse, in which a succession of historical characters present complaints against the evils of the age in the court of Apollo, and finally find the Golden Fleece in Newfoundland" (Baer). "Vaughan's treatise was divided into three parts, the first concerned with religion, the second with the 'Vices and Decayes of the Kingdome,' and the third with 'wayes to get wealth, and to restore Trading. The third part focused on colonization". he created a unique text by bringing into this dialogue the central figures of contemporary Jacobean and Elizabethan colonization, including John Guy, Captain John Mason, Richard Whitbourne, Francis Drake and Martin Frobisher" (McDiarmid & Collinson). The Golden Fleece is an extraordinary work, in vivid contrast to the more prosaic and practical propagandist tracts on Newfoundland which Whitbourne and Mason had written. Its purpose was simple enough: Vaughan was anxious to promote the island as a place for settlement. Success, he believed, would relieve overpopulation at home, treble England's present income from the fishery which he estimated to be 20,000 pounds, and generally increase trade".Vaughan provided us with some of the earliest English literature on North America" (Gillian Cell). Lacking the extraordinarily rare map by John Mason, which "is very rarely found with the book" (Church). STC 2460. Sabin 98693. Church 409. Howgego V18. Interior generally fine, blank leaves between parts (V4, Oo2) and blanks at both front and rear excised. Scarce. [Attributes: First Edition]

        THE GOLDEN FLEECE DIVIDED INTO THREE PARTS, UNDER WHICH ARE DISCOVERED THE ERRORS OF RELIGION, THE VICES AND DECAYES OF THE KINGDOME, AND LASTLY THE WAYES TO GET WEALTH, AND TO RESTORE TRADING SO MUCH COMPLAYNED OF. TRANSPORTED FROM CAMBRIOLL COLCHOS, OUT OF THE SOUTHERMOST PART OF THE ILAND [sic], COMMONLY CALLED THE NEWFOUNDLAND...

      London: Printed for Francis Williams, 1626. [28],149,[1],105,[1],96pp. Small quarto. Modern blue morocco, spine gilt. Scattered contemporary ink annotations. Two small worn holes in the lower right corner throughout. Some dust soiling and tanning, with an occasional fox mark. Lacking the folding map, as usual. A very good copy. A very rare and rather eccentric work of literary fantasy, intended to extol the riches and gains to be had in Newfoundland and to excite interest in immigration. The anonymous author, William Vaughan (1575 or 1577- 1641), was a Welsh poet and colonial promoter who saw Newfoundland, with its rich fisheries, as a source of revenue for England and of employment for its people. "Cambrioll," mentioned in the title here, was the name Vaughan gave to his settlement on the island. Vaughan actually spent time in Newfoundland from 1622 to 1624, an experience which greatly adds to the accuracy of this promotional work; and despite the fantastical nature of the text, much early information on Newfoundland is to be gleaned here. "This work is one of the earliest contributions to English literature from America, and was intended to advertise Vaughan's colony. It is a queer fantasy in prose and verse, in which a succession of historical characters present complaints against the evils of the age in the Court of Apollo, and finally find the Golden Fleece in Newfoundland" - Baer. The text contains brief references to Lord Baltimore (a partner in Vaughan's Newfoundland enterprise) and Captaine Wynne, hence the Maryland interest. Vaughan also criticizes the social use of tobacco, bringing his work to the attention of Arents. According to the Church catalogue, quoting Rich, the map by John Mason is almost never found with THE GOLDEN FLEECE, as is the case in the present copy. A significant early and interesting New World promotional, with a Maryland association. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 626/143. LANDE S2269. TPL 6302. BAER MARYLAND 12. ARENTS 161A. CHURCH 409. BELL V36.

Low Dutch 3. High Dutch 4. French. 5. Italian. 6. Spanish. 7. Latine. 8. Greeke. 9. Hebrew, &c..

      London: Printed by John Haviland, 1626. [4], 760 cols. Recent calf backed tan paper boards, contrasting red morocco lettering-piece. Very minor wear to extremities. Light browning and damp-staining throughout, title laid-down with ink annotation to text, neat repairs to tears at bottom margin of Bb - touching text though without loss of sense. Appearing in 1617, compiled by lexicographer John Minsheu (1559/60-1627), Ductor in Linguas was the first etymological dictionary of the English language, and only the second etymological dictionary of any modern European language. Minsheu initially struggled to acquire funding for publication of the work, ultimately succeeding through the patronage of such distinguished scholars as William Camden. To cover expenses and make certain of selling the first edition run, Minsheu embarked on a promotional tour - gradually adding to his list of purchasers which eventually totalled over 400 individuals. Certain authorities have suggested this to be the first use of publication by subscription in English printing history. STC 17946.. Second edition. Folio.
