PURCHAS, Samuel.
London: Printed by William Stansby for Henrie Fetherstone, 1626.. Fourth edition, folio, (xl), 140, 149-344, 347-1047, (1, 24 Index) pp, with some mispagination. 22 maps and one plate (of a Turkish woman) in the text, but lacking the folding map of China, 7 leaves of text and 6 leaves of the Index at the end, final Index leaf present torn with about half lost, some light staining to early leaves, 19th century armorial bookplate, 19th and 20th century ownership inscriptions to fly leaf. Contemporary calf with a simple border of three blind stamped rolls, some wear, neatly rebacked with a maroon label. A defective copy of an important work, distinct from Purchas' "Pilgrimes" which often has this title bound up as a fifth volume. The "Pilgrimes" is a famous collection of voyages published from many of Hakluyt's manuscripts which Purchas inherited; whereas the "Pilgrimage" concerns the religions and history of the world and was largely his own composition. 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.

SCHEINER, Christoph
Engraved allegorical frontis., fine engraved port. of the Duke of Bracciano, engraved vignette on title, & very many finely engraved illus. in the text (some full-page) depicting the author's observations of sunspots and the telescopes used by him. 20 p.l. (incl. frontis.), 784 pp., one blank leaf, [36] pp. Large thick folio (390 x 267 mm.), cont. vellum over boards (some wear to extremities, joint cracked but strong, light browning & occasional minor marginal dampstaining). Bracciano: [Privately Printed by] A. Phaeus, 1626-30. First edition, and a remarkable large and thick paper copy, of Scheiner's greatest work; this magnificent book, which is today very rare on the market, is the most richly and superbly illustrated astronomy book published in the first half of the 17th century. It describes and depicts Scheiner's observations of sunspots and his telescopes. We have never seen a large and thick paper copy of this book before; it is simply gigantic when compared to a normal copy (which usually measures about 348 x 240 mm.). In 1611, Scheiner constructed a telescope with which he began to make astronomical observations, and in March of that year, he detected the presence of spots on the sun. Scheiner's claim to the discovery of sun spots, independently of Galileo, was the origin of one of the most famous and heated controversies in the history of science. This book contains the summation of Scheiner's observations of the sun. He confirmed his method and criticized Galileo for failing to mention the inclination of the axis of rotation to the plane of th … [Click Below for Full Description]

DIBDIN, Thomas Frognall
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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Andrade, Antonio de:
Lisbon: Mateo Pineiro, 1626.. 23 leaves. Small quarto. Modern half morocco and marbled boards, spine gilt. Manuscript foliations in upper outer corner of recto of each leaf. A bit of faint spotting. Very good. The first Spanish language edition, following by a few months the first edition (which was printed in Portuguese), printed in Lisbon the same year. This is the second overall printing of Andrade's important letter. The first authoritative, printed account of a European traveller's visit to Tibet. 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 two more times, consecrating a church at Tsaparang in 1626. Andrade's printed letter is crucially important as being the first authentic report of Tibet by a European who undoubtedly went there (the 14th-century visit of Odorico de Pordenone remains in dispute). It was very popular and quickly went through many editions. "Throughout Cathol … [Click Below for Full Description]

D'Aubigne, Theodore Agrippa
Amsterdam [i.e.Geneva]: Heritiers de Hier. Comelin [i.e. Pierre Aubert], 1626. Second edition, revised and augmented; folio, pp. 20, 1189 columns, 744 columns (so paged), pp. [40]; top of spine chipped, 3 small worm holes through the upper cover and into the first few leaves; occasional light foxing, but generally a clean, sound copy in full contemporary calf, gilt. D'Aubigne (1552-1630) was the son of a zealous Huguenot who instilled in him an abiding protestant sympathy and an almost reckless disregard for personal safety in the Protestant struggle. He was present at the siege of Orleans where his father was killed. He soon after went to Geneva to study under Beza. From there he attached himself to the Huguenot army under the command of the Prince of Conde. Eventually he joined the retinue of Henry of Navarre, and proved himself of great service to the future king, both as a soldier and a counselor. After Henry's elevation to the throne, the king found d'Aubigne's rough manner and caustic criticisms tiresome (in his literary works he freely exercised his gift of sarcasm with regard to the king and his family) and the rift between the two widened when the king converted to Catholicism. By the time he published the third volume of the present work, it was ordered to be burned by the common hangman, so free and unguarded was its satire. He fled to Geneva in 1620 where he lived the rest of his life. The Histoire Universelle is the work for which d'Aubigne is best remembered, "a lively chronicle of the incidents of camp and court life, [forming] a very valuable source for t … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

Neander, J.
Lugduni Batavorum (Leyden), Elzevier, 1626. 4to (21.4 x 15.7 cm). Engraved title page, engraved portrait of Neander; [xxxvi], 256, [iii] pp., including nine page-sized engravings (with blank versos, i.e. plates) of tobacco plants, cultivation and curing of tobacco, pipes, etc. Contemporary vellum with script title in an old hand on the spine; slightly later endpapers. A rare work on tobacco and its merits by the early experimenter Johann Neander (1596 or 1597-after 1632), from Bremen. Second edition, given the frontispiece dated 1626. The Epistola dedicatoria cryptically contains the year 1622 ("7. Kal. Maij styl. Gregor. anno DoMInI IesV ChrIstI SerVatorIs VerI"). Hirsch IV, 332: Arents coll. 84, 89a: "...a popular compendium of information relating to the 'scientific' methods of preparing and using tobacco 'for all the ailments of human body'. The cuts...illustrate the native methods of cultivating, gathering, curing and preparing tobacco.". Bound in the rear, unpaginated, is a long (three pp. ) verse in Dutch by Ioost (or Joost) van Ravelingen on the merits and curses-"Tabacks Lof en Lastering"-of tobacco, dedicated to Neander. Van Ravelingen is better known as editor of Dodoens' Kruydeboeck. As in the first edition, pages 55, 69, 167, 249, 253 are wrongly numbered as 45, 65, 147, 253, 257. This may suggest that only the title page (dated 1626) is in "2nd edition". Plate on "p. 253"(= 249) bound after, instead of before p. 251; the same with page "257" (=253).

MALFI, Tiberio
Naples: Ottavio Beltrano, 1626. Very rare first edition of this handsomely illustrated work on barbers giving detailed instructions on both the medical and aesthetic aspects of the profession. Published at a time when barbers saw their territory increasingly contested by professional surgeons, Malfi's work stresses the medical knowledge of barbers and their expertise in performing important medical procedures. Illustrated with portraits of famous barbers in history, anatomical models and scenes showing surgical procedures, the work is a mirror of a profession that would undergo major change by the end of the century. The work is divided into three books. The first is concerned with the art of hairdressing, and includes chapters on the dignity of the beard (Malfi's own consists of a large twirled mustache and a thin strip of goatee) and on the damaging and deforming effects of long hair on men, as well as descriptions of the instruments and techniques needed for hair cutting and grooming. The second chapter is dedicated to bloodletting, explaining the medical rationale behind it, and introducing basic anatomy and the location of veins and arteries. The instructions for the various procedures are detailed and practical, including advice on how to position the patient, what to do when the desired vein is difficult to raise, and how to collect the blood. The illustrations to this book range from anatomical woodcuts to engraved scenes with several figures and fully realized background landscapes. The final book covers various other surgical procedures which a barber might perfo … [Click Below for Full Description]

"D'Aubigne, Theodore Agrippa"
Amsterdam [i.e.Geneva]: Heritiers de Hier. Comelin [i.e. Pierre Aubert]. 1626. "Second edition, revised and augmented; folio, pp. 20, 1189 columns, 744 columns (so paged), pp. [40]; top of spine chipped, 3 small worm holes through the upper cover and into the first few leaves; occasional light foxing, but generally a clean, sound copy in full contemporary calf, gilt. D'Aubigne (1552-1630) was the son of a zealous Huguenot who instilled in him an abiding protestant sympathy and an almost reckless disregard for personal safety in the Protestant struggle. He was present at the siege of Orleans where his father was killed. He soon after went to Geneva to study under Beza. From there he attached himself to the Huguenot army under the command of the Prince of Conde. Eventually he joined the retinue of Henry of Navarre, and proved himself of great service to the future king, both as a soldier and a counselor. After Henry's elevation to the throne, the king found d'Aubigne's rough manner and caustic criticisms tiresome (in his literary works he freely exercised his gift of sarcasm with regard to the king and his family) and the rift between the two widened when the king converted to Catholicism. By the time he published the third volume of the present work, it was ordered to be burned by the common hangman, so free and unguarded was its satire. He fled to Geneva in 1620 where he lived the rest of his life. The Histoire Universelle is the work for which d'Aubigne is best remembered, ""a lively chronicle of the incidents of camp and court life, [forming] a very … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.
