      London: Printed by William Stansby for Henrie Fetherstone, 1626..

Divided into sections per continent, he covers Biblical history and customs, the origins of Islam, trade and voyages to the East Indies and Japan, Egyptian religion, the various African tribes and countries and America north and south - "New France, Virginia, Florida, New Spaine, with other Regions of America Mexicana... Cumana, Guiana, Brasil, Chica, Chili, Peru...". STC 20508.5. Sabin 66682 "...the best edition of the 'Pilgrimage'" and the only one with maps.

        The Bibliographical Decameron; or, Ten Days Pleasant Discourse Upon Illuminated Manuscripts, and Subjects Connected with Early Engraving, Typography, and Bibliography

      Complete 3-volume set. Small 4to. Quarter burgundy calf and red paper over boards, gilt spines, compartments. ccxxv, 410pp; 535pp; 544pp. Extensive textual illustrations, all called-for plates (excepting the usually-absent "Presentation in the Temple," not ready at publication time and present in very few copies) present; extra illustrated with at least half a dozen (and possibly more) plates, most in the third volume. Very good overall. Tight hinges and with all leather elements in sound condition, with just a bit of rubbing along the edges; paper-covered boards are edgeworn and rubbed along the faces; internally quite nice, with just a bit of occasional foxing. A nice first edition of this bibliographic tour-de-force, a classic by the famed bibliophile who brought the term "bibliomania" into the language. Each front pastedown bears the small handsome armorial bookplate of "Bateman / of Middleton Hall / (by Youlgrave) in the / County of Derby." Roger Bateman built Middleton Hall in 1626 (rebuilt 1825); Thomas Bateman Sr. (1760-1847) was a famed cotton magnate and later High Sheriff of Derbyshire noted for his exceptional library; his son William (1788-1836) was an amateur antiquarian and archeologist, and his only son, Thomas Jr. (1821-61), became a controversial pioneering archeologist known as the "Squire of Bateman" and the "Barrow Knight" because of his extensive excavation of barrows or burial mounds. The front flyleaf of each bears the attractive 20th century custom bookplate of Ruth Barbara Jeffris of the Wisconsin Parker Pen family. And lastly, an inner flyleaf of the first volume bears an ownership signature that may have come either before or after the Bateman connection: "John Ingle Dredge, / Cambridge, / June 1846." Dredge (1818-97) was a Methodist and Anglican clergyman, a noted antiquarian who penned a number of Devon bibliographies. Despite gentle wear, this is a most attractive set and with an interesting provenance. WINDLE & PIPPIN A28.

        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.
