Watson: Cambridge Bibliography of English Literature V3, P2213. Buchanan: Political Thought in Early Modern Britain P152). 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.

Thorn était une ville de Prusse libre, lors d'une fête processionnelle catholique, il arriva que des membres d'un collège jésuite mollestèrent des luthériens qui ne s'agenouillaient pas lors du passage du cortège ; un étudiant jésuite fut arrêté puis un second. Les étudiant firent alors force tapage pour qu'on libère les deux étudiants et continuèrent leurs violences sur des protestants qu'ils rencontraient. Mécontent de l'affaire, les jésuites portèrent le jugement en haut lieu, en appelèrent au roi, et c'est le grand chancellier de la couronne qui porta son jugement : le président et le vice-président de la ville de Thorn furent éxécutés ainsi que d'autres personnes. Ces sombres événements donnèrent lieu à ces deux ouvrages de protestation contre le jésuitisme et l'église catholique romaine et déplorèrent, comme nombre d'allemands, la persécution des protestants.

Edizione seicentesca del curioso poema in venti canti in ottava rima riguardante la distruzione di Troia e la successiva edificazione di città in Italia da parte di Enea e della sua stirpe. L'opera, di autore ignoto, è tradizionalmente attribuita al fiorentino Jacopo di Carlo, editore della prima edizione risalente al 1491. Brunet tuttavia ritiene più probabile che il nome dell'autore si debba ricercare nell'acrostico inserito nelle ultime tre stanze del poema ''Angilus Johannes Franci ad Andream F.''. Il piccolissimo carattere tondo del testo, nonché la grossolana impressione di alcuni dei legni piccoli rendono, loro malgrado, fascinoso questo rarissimo libretto.

Leaf 25 wrongly numbered 52; 65 wrongly numbered 56; 86 wrongly numbered 73; 87 wrongly numbered 78; 98 wrongly numbered 89; 101 wrongly numbered 103. *** FIRST EDITION of a significant Spanish Golden Age novel. It was published at least four times in the seventeenth century, once in the eighteenth and several times in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The second edition, Lisbon: Vicente Alvarez, 1640, is even rarer than the first. None of the early editions are common.The book is dedicated to Don Manuel Perez de Guzman el Bueno, Duque de Medina Sidonia, etc. The second leaf, with licenses, is in Portuguese. The rest of the book is entirely in Spanish. Gonzalo de Céspedes y Meneses (1585? -1638), a native of Madrid, was a Spanish novelist, poet, historian, and polemicist. Nothing is known for certain of him before the publication of his celebrated romance, the Poema trágico del español Gerardo, y desengaño del amor lascivo (1615-1617), translated into English by Leonard Digges in 1622 as Gerardo the Unfortunate Spaniard. There is evidence that he had been sentenced to eight years in the galleys previous to January 1, 1620, and that the penalty had been commuted, but the nature of his offense is not stated. His treatment of political questions in the Historia apologética en los sucesos del reyno de Aragon, y su ciudad de Zaragoza, años de 91 y 92 (1622), having led to the confiscation of the book, Céspedes took up his residence at Zaragoza and Lisbon. While in exile he issued a collection of six short stories entitled Historias peregrinas y exemplares (1623), the present unfinished romance Varia fortuna del soldado Píndaro (1626), and the first part of his Historia de Felipe IV. (1631), a fulsome eulogy which was rewarded by the author's appointment as official historiographer to the Spanish king. His novels, though written in a ponderous, affected style, display considerable imagination and insight into character. According to Ward, "His achievement was to blend courtly and picaresque elements into a genre which reacted against the more sordid situations then popular in fiction. His best works are the semi-autobiographical . Poema tràgico del español Gerardo . and Varia fortuna del soldado Pindaro ." The Poema trágico was used by John Fletcher in The Spanish Curate and in The Maid of the Mill.Céspedes y Meneses?s unfinished romance Varia fortuna del soldado Pindaro shows the influence of Cervantes. It is a novella picaresca, with Byzantine episodes that are often difficult to believe. It is a classic ?soldadesca,? a genre dedicated to the life of soldiers. The novella is supposedly unfinished, and appropriately ends with (?) at the end of l. 188 recto. This is the same way that Céspedes y Meneses ends chapter XIX, l. 74 recto, which suggests an added element of suspense with the use of this punctuation mark at the end of a chapter. Chapter XXIII also ends in the same fashion, wi [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        America with those known parts in that unknowne world both people and manner of buildings discribed and inlarged by I.S. Ano 1626.

      1626. "Si tratta di una delle più emblematiche carte d'America mai prodotte, presentata qui nel suo secondo stato, con l'aggiunta di Boston, Conectacut, Lon Ile, Mary land and Carolina. La mappa è di grande importanza perché vanta tutta una serie di ""primati"": è la prima mappa inserita in un atlante a raffigurare la California come un'isola, e la prima a rappresentare con esattezza la costa orientale nord americana. Cartograficamente è basata sulle prime mappe dell'olandese Abraham Goos, ma segue gli aggiornamenti della mappa di Henry Briggs del 1625, in cui appunto la California ha una forma insulare. E' di rilievo la completa assenza dei Grandi Laghi - che nel 1626 dovevano ancora essere concepiti dai cartografi europei. Non è riportato nessuno dei regni leggendari: Quivara, Teguayo, Cibola, ecc sono noti. Nel Sud America è riportato il leggendario Lago Parime, nella Guiana, associato al mito di El Dorado; più a sud il mitico lago Eupana. Un'altra particolarità, è l'indicazione dello Stretto di Le Maire, che separa la Terra del Fuoco da un altro misterioso istmo chiamato ""States Land"", che in effetti corrisponde alla moderna Isola degli Stati. Il navigatore Jacob Le Maire aveva attraversato il canale tra le due isole, a cui darà il suo nome, durante la sua navigazione intorno a Capo Horn e nel Pacifico, nel 1615. Nell'Artico, sono riportate le due isole fantasma di Frislandia e Brasil, anche nota come Hy Brasil, di cui si narrava che fosse completamente avvolta dalla nebbia e che fosse visibile solo una volta ogni sette anni. L'ultima mappa a riportare l'isola del Brasil, come Brazil Rock, è una carta nautica del 1865. Splendida mappa, incisa da Anraham Goos per John Speed. La bella mappa è impreziosita da vignette che la decorano su tre lati e illustrano i popoli indigeni, mentre le vignette del margine superiore contengono vedute di città tra le quali Avana, Città del Messico, Rio de Janeiro, Cusco, e altri importanti insediamenti del Sud America. Incisione su rame, bella coloritura coeva, margini sottili, in ottimo stato di conservazione." A nice example of John Speed's 1626 map of America here in its second state, with the cartographic additions of Boston, Conectacut, Lon Ile, Mary land and Carolina. One of the most iconic maps of America ever made, this map is surrounded by decorative vignettes illustrating the indigenous peoples and cities of the Americas. This map is both beautiful and important. It features a number of first, including being the first atlas map to depict California as an island and to accurately depict the east coast of North America. Cartographically it follows on the earlier maps of the Dutchman Abraham Goos, the engraver, with updates to reflect the 1625 Briggs vision of an insular California. This is the first atlas map to represent California as an island. The idea of an insular California first appeared as a work of fiction in Garci Rodriguez de Montalvo's c. 1510 romance Las Sergas de Esplandian, where he writes Know, that on the right hand of the Indies there is an island called California very close to the side of the Terrestrial Paradise; and it is peopled by black women, without any man among them, for they live in the manner of Amazons. Baja California was subsequently discovered in 1533 by Fortun Ximenez, who had been sent to the area by Hernan Cortez. When Cortez himself traveled to Baja, he must have had Montalvo's novel in mind, for he immediately claimed the 'Island of California' for the Spanish King. By the late 16th and early 17th century ample evidence had been amassed, through explorations of the region by Francisco de Ulloa, Hernando de Alarcon and others, that California was in fact a peninsula. However, by this time other factors were in play. Francis Drake had sailed north and claimed 'New Albion' (identified here on the northwest coast of California Island) near modern day Washington or Vancouver for England. The Spanish thus needed to promote Cortez's claim on the 'Island of California' to preempt English claims on the western coast of North America. Henry Briggs, an English mathematician, began promoting the idea of an insular California in 1622, citing the journals of Friar Antonio de la Ascension, who accompanied the 1602 - 03 Sebastian Vizcaino expedition. The significant influence of the Spanish crown on European cartographers caused a major resurgence of the Insular California theory. Just before this map was made Eusebio Kino, a Jesuit missionary, traveled overland from Mexico to California, proving conclusively the peninsularity of California. Even so, it was ultimately a 1747 royal decree from King Ferdinand VII of Spain that finally forced cartographers to give up on the alluring idea. Other elements of interest in North America are the complete absence of the Great Lakes - which in 1626 had yet to be conceived of by any European cartographers. The Straits of Anian appear tenuously in the extreme northwest, just above California. Just east of the 'o' in 'California,' on the continental mainland, there is a curious ghosted in lake called the 'Lagueo de Oro.' We have found no references or explanation for this. None of the legendary kingdoms of gold, Quivara, Teguayo, Cibola, etc. are noted. The western portions of the Hudson Bay are unmapped - suggestive of their unexplored status. The addition of Long Island and Boston, in notably darker print, are important updates over the earliest editions. South America offers much of interest including the mythical Lake Parimia, in Guiana. The legend of Parima is associated with the English adventurer Sir Walter Raleigh's search for El Dorado. Believing El Dorado to lie in the northern part of the Amazon, Raleigh sailed down the Orinoco River just before the onset of the rainy season. Reaching a remote tribal village, Raleigh noted canoes arriving bearing gold, silver, and other treasures. Asked where the gold came from, the natives replied, 'Manoa,' the term for the tribe to which the river traders belonged. Manoa, the natives claimed could be reached following a long river voyage southward to a Great Lake, called Parima. Raleigh and his associates immediately associated Manoa and Lake Parima with the golden kingdom of El Dorado, though they never visited the city or lake. Subsequent maps, including this one, mapped el Dorado and Lake Parima in this location for several hundred years. Both Raleigh and the natives were describing an actual event known to occur annually in the region. Rains would annually swell the Amazon and Orinoco river systems creating a linkage in the Rupununu flood plain, which, during heavy rains, can resemble a massive lake. The Manoa were a large and populous trading nation active in pre - colonial days whose vast empire, based in the Amazon Basin, extended form the Andes to the Orinoco. Curiously, in addition to noting the city of Manoa on Lake Parima, D'Anville also correctly maps the center of the ancient Manoan civilization between the Amazon tributaries Rio Negro and Rio Yapura. Sadly the Manoa and many of the other populous South American indigenous nations noted by the earliest explores to the region vanished, brought low by European epidemics. Another mythical lake, Eupana, appears further south connecting the Rio de la Plata and the Paraguay River to the R. Real, thus turning eastern Brazil into an island. This is a update over many earlier maps which connected Eupana directly to the Amazon. Far in the south Speed presents us ith another anomaly, the Straits of Le Maire, which separates Tierra de Fuego from another mysterious stretch of land labled 'States Land.' The is in fact the modern island of Isla de los Estados, the southeastern most point in South America. Jacob le Maire and his pilot Willem Schouten passed to between this island and Tierra del Fuego on their 1615 voyage around Cape Horn and into the Pacific. In the high Arctic, near Iceland and Greenland, the supposed islands of Frisland and Brasil are noted. Frisland is little more than a double mapping of Iceland. Brasil, also known as Hy - Brasil, is a phantom island north Atlantic just west of Ireland. In Irish myths it was said to be cloaked in mist, except for one day every seven years, when it became visible but still could not be reached. Little is known of this orgins of this myth, but it appears on maps in various forms from about 1325. The last known appearance was in 1865 when it appeared on a nautical chart as 'Brasil Rock.' Some speculate that it may be an early reference to Porcupine Bank, a shoal in the Atlantic Ocean about 200 kilometres (120 mi) west of Ireland. Speed's map of America is especially noteworthy for its surrounded vignettes. To either side of the map proper there are various vignettes illustrating the indigenous peoples of the America. These includes natives of Greenland, Virginia, Florida, Mexico, New England, Peru, Brazil, and Tierra del Feugo.n Along the top of the map there are eight city views: Havanna, Santo Domingo, Cartagena, Mexico City, Cuzco, the isle of Moca, Rio de Janeiro, and Olinda. This map was engraved for John Speed by Abraham Goos. A good example, with contemporary colour, small margins as usual, good condition.

        Asia with the Islands adioyning described..

      1626. "Questa mappa è la prima carta inglese a stampa del continente asiatico" (Shirley). Secondo stato (di tre), dall'edizione del "Prospect" di Speed, edito da Reas nel 1662. Questa bella carta - a - figures è la prima mappa inglese stampata dell'Asia. Ai lati è arricchita da figure in costume tipico dei popoli asiatici, con una serie di otto vedute di città, che formano un fregio decorativo nella parte superior, tra cui Damasco, Gerusalemme, Aden, Hormus, Goa, Kandy, Banten e Macao. La mappa si basa in gran parte sulla carta di Jodocus Hondius del 1623 con raffigurazioni dettagliate delle Indie Orientali, le Filippine e la forma allungata penisola di Corea. Grandi laghi e fiumi dominano l'intero della Cina e il mitico lago di Ciamay genera cinque grandi fiumi nell'India senza il Gange. La Grande Muraglia cinese è posta troppo a nord. Il Mar Caspio è notevolmente ampliato. La mappa è ulteriormente impreziosita da un cartiglio per il titolo, numerose creature marine e navi a vela e un elefante che appare all'interno della Cina. Splendidamente incisa da Abraham Goos con l'imprint di Roger Rea, pubblicata nel 1662. Il testo inglese al verso offre un'affascinante punto di vista inglese sull'Asia. Lievemente brunita, con qualche sporadica macchia, una più grande a sinistra, piccolo strappi perfettamente restaurati che toccano appena l'inciso, e piccolo strappi in corrispondenza degli angoli e del margine sinistro, nel complesso in buone condizioni.

It is flanked by costumed figures of Asian peoples with a series of eight city views forming a decorative frieze across the top including Damascus, Jerusalem, Aden, Hormus, Goa, Kandy, Banten and Macau. The map is based largely on Jodocus Hondius' map of 1623 with detailed depictions of the East Indies, the Philippines and the elongated peninsula form of Korea. Large lakes and rivers dominate the interior of China and the mythical Lake of Ciamay spawns five large rivers in India Without Ganges. The Great Wall of China is placed too far north. The Caspian Sea is greatly enlarged and oriented in an east - west direction. The map is further embellished with a title cartouche, numerous sea creatures and sailing ships and an elephant appears in the interior of China. Beautifully engraved by Abraham Goos with the imprint of Roger Rea, published in 1662. The English text on verso provides a fascinating Anglo - centric view of Asia.

Perrette, his sale, Christie's New York, 5th April 2016, lot 40 Fifth edition, of this beautiful and comprehensive atlas of France, with an astonishingly apt association, being from the library of Don Gaspard Guzman, El Conde de Olivares, prime minister (1623–1643) and court favourite (valido) of King Philip IV of Spain. Leclerc's atlas was issued at a time when the protection of the Spanish overseas empire had become the central consideration in Spanish relations with the Dutch rebels. A continued slump in silver shipments from America heralded a rapid, long-term decline. Enter Don Gaspard Guzman, a powerful figure who had a major impact on Spanish politics and culture during the reign of Philip IV. He was both a military general and the patron who brought Velázquez to the young king’s court. From 1623 until January 24, 1643, Olivares served as prime minister of Spain. He was unswervingly loyal to the king and was vehemently patriotic. He was also avid for power—both for himself and for Spain. The main objective of his domestic policy was to engender national unity among the separate kingdoms of the peninsula, kingdoms that he described as "anachronistic as crossbows." Olivares' Union of Arms, a scheme for the creation of a reserve army of 140,000 men that was to be paid for by the dominions of the Spanish empire in proportion to their estimated resources, directly caused the revolts of Catalonia and Portugal. Catalonia refused to join, refused to pay the new taxes, and refused to fight for Spain: "In 1639 Olivares opened a campaign against southern France from Catalonia. It had no rational strategic objective except to pitchfork Catalonia into the war. If the Catalans had to defend their country, Olivares argued, they would have to support the army" (Encyclopedia Britannica). Eventually the continued Spanish involvement in the Thirty Years’ War ended with the eclipse of Spanish power by France. Yet in the period of the Counter-Reformation it is difficult to conceive of Spain following a different course; in this sense it was almost inevitable, and Olivares can hardly be judged in terms of its ultimate failure. Maurice Bouguereau issued the first national atlas of regional maps in 1594. Le Clerc acquired the plates and re-printed the maps between 1619 and 1620 with 23 additional maps and the his widow published this edition in 1626 with a total of 49 maps. Jean Leclerc was the fourth generation of publishers. He arrived with his family in Tours as a refugee from Wars of Religion he began as an apprentice to Bouguereau. Bouguereau.

        The collection of the history of England.

      London: Printed [by Nicholas Okes] for Simon Waterson Folio (28.5 cm; 11.5"). [4] ff., 222 pp. (without imprimatur and dedication leaves).. 1626 Daniel (1562–1619), a poet and historian, was educated at Oxford but left without taking a degree. During his life he had several patrons, served several lords, and only obtained financial security early in the 17th century when Queen Anne became his Maecenas. His early poetry varied in style but by the early 1590s it was solidly in the dolce stile. In 1612 Daniel brought out his first important prose work, The First Part of the Historie of England. The present work completes that earlier one and after recapitulating the earlier history in just 22 pages, takes the story from the Conquest to the end of the reign of Edward III. The title is printed within a woodcut "arabesque" border and the text is in roman within line borders defining space for sidenotes. Evidence of Readership: Occasional pencil marks in text; final blank with old pencil notes and an inked couplet of yet greater age: "To make poor mortalls more in Love with breath / The Gods conceale the benefitts of Death." Provenance: Signature on front free endpaper of "Thos. Hekt"(?) dated 1822; older ownership note on inside rear board of "Fransisci Heyct"(?); 20th-century bookplate of the famous collector Boies Penrose II. Contemporary calf over paste boards, modest blind double-ruled border on boards, gilt beading on board edges; binding worn, lacks pastedowns, hinges (inside) open but binding strong. Inner margin of title-leaf discolored from old glue. Text generally clean with only light waterstains in some early leaves' upper inner parts, a few stray stains or pencil marks as noted above in text, one leaf with a short closed tear. Without the imprimatur leaf preceding the title and lacking the dedication leaf, which was an insert between A2 and A3 and is frequently lacking; final blank leaf, also usually missing, present here with notes as above. Ownership notes as noted. On the whole, a good copy.

        The collection of the history of England.

      London: Printed [by Nicholas Okes] for Simon Waterson Folio (27.5 cm, 10.8"). [10], 222 pp.. 1626 [with] Trussell, John. A continuation of the Collection of the history of England, beginning where Samuel Daniell Esquire ended... London: Pr. by M[ary] D[awson] for Ephraim Dawson, 1636. Folio. [8], 260 pp. (pagination skips 243/44). Daniel (1562–1619), a poet and historian, was educated at Oxford but left without taking a degree. He subsequently achieved great popular success and influence as a poet of the dolce stile, to the point that Spenser obliquely praised him in the Prothalamion and Shakespeare took his Civil Wars as a source for the history plays. In 1612 Daniel brought out his first important prose work, The First Part of the Historie of England. The present work completes that one, and after recapitulating the earlier history in just 22 pages, takes the story from the Conquest to the end of the reign of Edward III. Following that is Trussell's further completion of the history, extending through the life and reign of Richard III. The Collection is here in an early edition, following the first of 1618, and the Continuation in the => first edition. The main title is printed within a woodcut "arabesque" border and the text is in roman within line borders defining space for sidenotes. Provenance: Front pastedown with 19th-century monogram bookplate of John Tomlinson and with 20th-century U.S. bookseller's small ticket; title-page of Collection with early inked inscription "R[ichar?]d Weston." Title-page of Continuation with early inked inscription "Fra.[?] Taylor. 18th-century dark brown morocco framed in gilt roll, all edges sprinkled blue and red; rebacked, joints refurbished, and original spine with gilt-stamped title and rules reapplied; rubbed and with spine extremities chipped. Pages age-toned, with intermittent light to moderate waterstaining and occasional foxing or ink staining; first and last few leaves with edges also darkened by offsetting from binding and one leaf with small burn hole in outer margin. Title-page with inscription as above, and with a few light ink smears not affecting text or border; last page of Collection with early ink doodles and lettering. A solid, rather distinguished example of this good combination.

        Disputationum de sancto matrimonii sacramento...editio haec postrema superiorum auctoritate correcta.

      Antuerpiae: Apud Martinum Nutium colophon: Ex typographia Henrici Aertsi] Folio (36 cm, 14.2"). [20], 500, 404, 408, [66 (index)] pp.. 1626 Early edition, following the first complete printing of 1605 (preceded by a partial printing in 1602), of this sometimes controversial, oft-reprinted treatise on marriage, morality, and sexual sin. Each of the three books has its own separate title-page. Brunet calls this "un ouvrage célèbre, à cause de quelques passages singuliers qui s'y trouvent,"while Englisch notes that "Dieses Werk enthalt alle moglichen Variationen uber die Geschlechtssunde in umstandlichster und eingehendster Behandlung," and Sommervogel simply states that the work caused its author "quelques chagrins" despite the purity and austerity of his personal life (a Jesuit from the time he was 17 years old, the Cordova-born Sánchez was said by his spiritual director to have "carried his baptismal innocence to the grave," according to the Catholic Encyclopedia online). Contemporary alum-tawed pigskin, tooled in blind, spine with inked title; binding darkened and scuffed, with clasps now lacking and with leather torn over head and foot of spine (lacking at foot, with underlying vellum showing). Title-page with inked ownership inscriptions dated 1715, later institutional stamp in lower margin, and faint shadows of pencilled notations; front pastedown and one text page also with institutional stamps. Small spots of worming to lower margins of a number of leaves. Pages age-toned, with some instances of marginalia and underlining in early inked hands and occasionally in pencil (a handful of leaves in part III extensively annotated within text); a few spots of foxing, and one leaf with paper flaws partially obscuring a few letters. A big, solid volume.

        Zeventien Provinciën - John Speed.

      "A NEW MAP OF THE XVII PROVINCES OF LOW GERMANIE, mended a new in a manie places."'Kopergravure van de Zeventien Provinciën vervaardigd in 1626, van cartograaf John Speed. Met afbeeldingen van "a gentleman"' en "a gentlewoman"', "a Brabander"' en "a Brabanders wife"', "a Hollander"' en "a Hollanders wife"', "a fisherman"' en "a fishers wife"', "a country man"' en "a country woman"', als ook standgezichten van Amsterdam, Antwerpen, Gent, Middelburg, Groningen, Zutphen, Utrecht en Atrecht (tegenw. Arras). Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. ca. 42 x 53,5 cm.Oorspronkelijk werkte John Speed (1552 - 1629) in het kleermakersbedrijf van zijn vader in Chesire. In 1567 verhuisde hij naar Londen. Door zijn grote geschiedkundige kennis kreeg hij toegang tot de wetenschappelijke kringen. Hij sloot zich aan bij het Antiquarisch Genootschap, waar hij werd aangemoedigd om onderzoekswerk te doen. Tevens verwierf hij in 1598 een betrekking en werkruimte in een douanekantoor, zodat hij in zijn levensonderhoud kon voorzien en zijn onderzoekswerk kon voortzetten.Speed brak door met zijn folio atlas: Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine. Deze atlas verscheen in 1612 en bevatte zo"n 64 kaarten van graafschappen in Engeland en Wales, Ierland, Schotland en van enkele eilanden. De meeste kaarten bevatten ook één, of heel soms twee stadsplattegrondjes van de belangrijkste steden in het afgebeelde gebied. In veel gevallen was Speed daarmee de eerste die dergelijke plattegronden in gedrukte vorm uitgaf. Alleen Georg Braun & Franz Hogenberg uit Keulen waren hem eind 16de eeuw in enkele gevallen voor. De kaarten onderscheidden zich verder door veel oog voor detail en het gebruik van symbolen voor dorpen, steden, bossen, bergen en heuvels. Ook was er nogal eens een belangrijke historische gebeurtenis ergens aan de rand van het kaartbeeld afgebeeld en werden de kaarten voorzien van wapenschilden van de aldaar wonende en/of heersende families.Omdat de oorspronkelijke graveur William Rogers in 1604 overleed stelden de uitgevers van de atlas voor dat een aanzienlijk deel van de kaarten in Amsterdam gegraveerd zou worden in het atelier van Jodocus Hondius.De atlas werd zowel ongebonden als gebonden te koop aangeboden. Desgewenst werden de kaarten tegen een meerprijs ingekleurd. De oplage van de eerste druk wordt geschat op zo'n 500 exemplaren. In 1616 verscheen een uitgave in het Latijn.Als vervolg op de succesvolle uitgaves van de Theatres verscheen in 1627 het Prospect Of the Most Famous Parts of the World. Dit was een 22 tot 28 kaarten bevattende wereldatlas. Ook voor deze atlas werd een beroep gedaan op graveurs uit de omgeving van Hondius. Sommige van hen hebben hun kaarten gesigneerd: oa Abraham Goos & Dirck Gryp. Veel van de kaarten in deze uitgave waren zogenaamde 'Cartes Figuratives", in dit geval werden de rand van de kaart aan de bovenkant opgevuld met stadsgezichten en de randen aan de zijkanten met gekostumeerde figuren. Van een dergelijke kaart is deze voorstelling van de Zeventien Provinciën een prachtig voorbeeld.Prijs: € 2.100,-.

The title and the first leaf were subsequently reset; this copy is in the first state. The work evolved out of Spelman's studies of early English law, but "at the outset he experienced so much difficulty in assigning the proper meanings to Anglo-Saxon and Latin terms, that he determined to postpone his legal researches" in favor of the philological question. "In 1626 the first volume of the Glossary, extending to the end of the letter 'L' was published. Spelman had offered it in vain to Beale, the King's printer, for five pounds, or for books of that value. He consequently bore all the expenses of publication. The importance of the volume was immediately recognized by the great scholars of the day, but the greater part of the edition remained on Spelman's hands for ten years.

      Köln (= Coloniae Agrippinae), sumptibus Antonii Hierati, 1626. Editio postrema correctior, ex secunda recognitione Guaiteri Gymnici. 4to. Tb. in Rot-Schwarz-Druck, mit Druckersignet, 57 nn. Bll. sowie einem Faltkupfer, 623, 280 S., 4 nn. Bll. Zeitgenössischer Pergamentband. (Papier stellenw. etw. stockfl.). Berühmteste forensisch-kasuistische Arbeit über das Reichskammergericht. - Gaill gilt als Begründer der Kameralistik, der Literatur zur Rechtsprechung des Reichskammergerichts. In seinen 1578 erstmals erschienenen Practicae observationes, die vielfach wiederaufgelegt und zuletzt 1771 gedruckt worden sind, versucht Gail erstmals eine systematische Darstellung der Rechtsprechung des Reichskammergerichts. In 316 observationes werden Rechtsfragen und Rechtsprobleme erörtert, die vor diesem höchsten reichsrechtlichen Gericht immer wieder auftauchten, unterschiedlich erörtert und diskutiert worden sind. Diese umstrittenen und oft sehr schwierigen Rechtsfragen werden in einzelnen, meist kurzen Abhandlungen dargelegt, kontrovers aufgeschlüsselt und die Entscheidung begründet. Nur so ist auch der ungeheuere Einfluß dieses Werkes zu erklären, ist bezüglich des Reichsgerichts unerreicht und nur von den Arbeiten Mevius` und Carpzovs erreicht worden. - Der angebundene Titel \"de pace publica\" ist eine staatsrechtliche Abhandlung Gaills. Das Werk behandelt den Landfrieden und die Reichsacht. Zu beiden Themenkreisen legte Gaill erstmals eine systematische Bearbeitung vor. Der sog. \"ewige Landfrieden\" war gerade aufgrund der Konfessionsstreitigkeiten zwischen Katholiken und Protestanten ein wichtiges und beliebtes Thema innerhalb des Jus publicum. Gaill untersucht auch die Reichweite des Landfriedens, vor allem seine Geltung innerhalb des geistlichen Standes: damit auch wiederum die Kompetenzen des Reichskammergerichts. - Gaill (1526-1587), aus einem alten Kölner Patriziergeschlecht stammend, studierte an den Universitäten Köln, Orléans und Löwen, promovierte 1555 in Bologna und praktizierte zunächst in seiner Vaterstadt als Anwalt. 1558 bis 1568 war er Beisitzer am Reichskammergericht zu Speyer, ab 1569 am Reichshofrat in Wien und in den letzten Jahren seines Lebens als Kanzler beim Kurfürsten in Köln tätig.
