        Plate from 'Academie de l'Espee'

      [Leiden: B. & A. Elzevir, 1628. Copper engraving by Andries Jacobsz Stock. Very good condition apart from a few light foxing marks in the top margin. A fine print from the most sumptuous book on fencing ever produced, which combines a strong design sense with beauty and historical importance, executed by one of the greatest engravers of the day. The image illustrates Thibault's theories of successful fencing using movement and mathematical principles. Thibault's work was produced during a period when the Italian rapier (or epee) held sway. "The Italians discovered the effectiveness of the dexterous use of the point rather than the edge of the sword. By the end of the 16th century, their lighter weapon...and simple, nimble, and controlled fencing style, emphasizing skill and speed rather than force, spread throughout Europe. Most of the wrestling tricks [used in earlier disciplines] were abandoned, the lunge was discovered, and fencing became established as an art" ( Encyclopaedia Britannica ). The present image marks the zenith of the use of the epee in Europe. "In the latter half of the 17th century, the sword and swordsmanship changed dramatically with a change in gentleman's dress. In France the court of Louis XIV set the fashion of silk stockings, breeches, and brocaded coats...As the long trailing rapier was unsuited to this form of dress, fashion decreed the wearing of a light, short court sword. The French style set in throughout Europe as the Italian had done earlier" (op. cit.). Cf. Vigeant p. 125; cf. Willems 302.

        The Famous Historie of the Indies: Declaring the adventures of the Spaniards, which have conquered these Countries, with varietie of Relations of the Religion, Lawes, Governments, Manners, Ceremonies, Customes, Rites, Warres, and Funerals of that People. Comprised into sundry Decads. Set forth first by Mr. Hackluyt, and now published by L.M. Gent. The second Edition

      London: Printed for Michael Sparke, 1628. Inner margins of first few leaves strengthened; a few leaves shorter than others at lower margins but all correct and text untouched.. Small quarto, an attractive copy in a good old Morrell binding of panelled calf gilt, gilt edges. Extremely rare: the second edition of the first complete printing of Peter Martyr's Decades in English (or in fact in any vernacular language). The English text was prepared by Michael Lok (among other flourishes to his tricky career he was unfortunate to have been Frobisher's financial backer) from the Latin original. Richard Hakluyt's hand is apparent throughout as it was he that encouraged Lok to produce the translation, based on the Latin text that Hakluyt had himself published in 1587 for the good reason that the obscure 1530 Alcala original edition of the full text of the Decades, the only earlier full text, was even then so hard to find. "The first, and for many years the only, history of the New World. Hence its important position in the literature of American history; this being indeed in many respects the sole contemporary source of information concerning the discovery and conquest of America' (Church). King Ferdinand's councillor for Spain's affairs in the New World, Peter Martyr was the foremost chronicler of the New World in its earliest period, and the first writer to preach the importance of the discovery of America by his countryman Columbus. An Italian scholar, from 1487 living in Spain, he was for several years tutor to the children of Ferdinand and Isabella, and was a friend and contemporary of Columbus, Cabot, Vespucci, Magellan, Vasco de Gama, and Cortes. Through personal correspondence with the navigators, and from examination of documents to which he had access as an official of the Council for the Indies, Martyr was able to record the major events surrounding the discovery of the New World.This is the reissue of Michael Lok's 1612 English version, translated from Hakluyt's Latin edition. The full text of Peter Martyr runs to eight decades, the first few having appeared in print following the 1511 first printing of the first decade: however the earliest printing of all eight decades - in Latin - was in the 1530 Alcala edition, already by the late sixteenth century so difficult to obtain that Hakluyt republished it in 1587 (De Orbe Nouo Petri Martyris Anglerii). In 1555 Richard Eden had published a translation of just the first three decades in his Decades of the Newe Worlde; the translation reappeared in the revised and expanded edition of Eden's book published by Richard Willes as The History of Travayle in the West and East Indies in 1577. However the subsequent five decades remained untranslated until, at Hakluyt's suggestion, Michael Lok took on the task of preparing the entire work for an English readership.Michael Lok was well suited to translate, and he needed the money: an English merchant and traveller, he had been the principal backer of Frobisher's voyages in search of the Northwest passage, and when the Cathay Company was formed in March 1577, Lok was appointed governor for six years: both activities left him penniless and petitioning for help from the Fleet prison.The publisher of the present issue was Michael Sparke; another issue of the same printing published by Andrew Hebb, undated and with a different title-page, has been variously dated both earlier and later than the present version; although nowadays it is generally catalogued as ?1625, there is a convincing argument by Henry Stevens (quoted in the Church catalogue) that "It is possible that the title issued by Michael Sparke senior, called 'The Second Edition,' and bearing date 1628, may have been prior to that of Hebb, and that Sparke may have got possession of Adams's remainder [i.e. the first English edition of 1612], and subsequently sold the whole or part of it to Hebb, or they may have shared it, as Sparke had done, with the great works of Purchas, Capt. John Smith and others...'.In any event, the Sparke issue offered here is two or three times rarer than the Hebb issue on the basis of holdings listed by ESTC, which notes just three copies of the present issue in the U.K. and five in U.S. libraries.

Faithfully taken out of the report of M. Christofer Ceely, Ellis. Hixom, and others, who were in the same Voyage with him. By Philip Nichols, Preacher.

Set forth by Sr. Francis Drake Baronet (his Nephew) now liuing

      London: printed for Nicholas Bourne, 1628. Small quarto. (7 7/8 x 6 1/8 inches). [8],80pp. plus contemporary manuscript list of pamphlets on one folded small format leaf bound in following titlepage. (Wormtrack to leaves from A2 to D1 with occasional loss of text, title lightly soiled with small tear in lower margin, dedication leaf with restoration to upper outer corner and repaired tear affecting text area, D4 with a repaired tear affecting text area). Modern brown half morocco over marbled boards by Bayntun of Bath, spine gilt in three unequal compartments with raised bands, lettered in gilt in the second compartment One of the rarest works on Drake, describing his Caribbean raid of 1572 The second edition, after the first of 1626, of this account of Francis Drake's highly successful raid against the Spanish in Panama in 1572-73, one of his early Caribbean raids of plunder and harassment. Sabin states of this edition: "It differs from that of 1626 in having had the advantage of the incorporation of the errata of the latter date under the personal superintendence of the nephew of the great voyager. The last four leaves are larger than the rest of the book." The expedition of fifty-two Englishmen attempted to seize Nombre de Dios, but were repulsed when Drake was wounded in the shoulder. After many reversals and hardships, the British managed to waylay an entire pack train of Peruvian silver, bringing home a fortune. Drake's bold move was approved by Queen Elizabeth, who shared in the plunder, but the politics of his raid on Spain during a period of ostensible peace made it necessary for him to disappear to Ireland for several years after the event. Besides his success in plunder, on this expedition Drake became the first Englishman to see the Pacific Ocean. The book was originally written in a manuscript account of the expedition given to Queen Elizabeth on New Year's Day 1593. In his letter of presentation which serves as the introduction to the book, Drake suggests that, while it is pleasant to think of past victories, he would rather be undertaking new employment of the same sort. The opportunity soon presented itself, with more raids in the West Indies; and in 1596, just over three years after giving the manuscript to the Queen, the intrepid Drake died at sea off Puerto Rico during a raid on Spanish shipping. Thirty years after Drake's death, courtier Philip Nichols reworked and published the manuscript. The timing of publication of the first edition is significant. King James I, Elizabeth's successor, had been eager to placate the Spanish, and no publication so openly lauding raids on Spanish property would have been tolerated during his reign. James I died in 1625 and Sir Francis Drake Revived.. . was published the following year. European Americana 628/87; JCB (3)II:213; Sabin20838; STC 18545.

        Bullae et Decreta Recentiora.

      1628 - A Rare Collection of Seventeenth-Century Papal Bulls [Canon Law]. [Gregory XV (1554-1623), Pope]. [Urban VIII (1568-1644), Pope]. Bullae et Decreta Recentiora. [N.p.: S.n., c. 1628]. [viii], 298 pp. Quarto (8" x 6"). Contemporary limp vellum, early hand-lettered title and shelf number to spine, ties lacking. Moderate rubbing to extremities, chipping to center and foot of spine, corners bumped and lightly worn, hinges partially cracked, vellum just beginning to crack through pastedowns, a few partial cracks to text block. Moderate toning to text, somewhat darker in places, dampspotting in a few places, staining to some leaves. Early owner inscription (of a Jesuit library) to title page, a few brief annotations to text, interior otherwise clean. * With index. Arranged chronologically, this volume contains papal bulls and related documents from the pontificates of Popes Gregory XV and Urban VIII issued between 1621-1628. They offer an interesting perspective on the Church and Papal States at an important point in its history. (The expansion of political territory and church missions are two highlights from this period.) Analogous in organization to volumes of session laws, collections of papal bulls were issued sporadically from the fifteenth century onward. All are scarce today. OCLC locates 5 examples in North America, all from the seventeenth century, two in law schools (Harvard, UC-Berkeley). None are identical to our copy. Not in the British Museum Catalogue or Ferreira-Ibarra.

Leaf 26 wrongly numbered 29; leaf 72 wrongly numbered 67. *** FIRST EDITION of one of the earliest European accounts of Tibet, together with an account of Jesuit activities in Ethiopia at a critical time for Catholic missionary efforts there. We have located no other edition, although Barbosa Machado mentions a manuscript copy of a Spanish translation. The title translates as: "A general account of the state of Christianity in Ethiopia; Reduction of schismatics; Entrance and reception of the Patriarch Dom Affonso Mendes; Allegiance of the Emperor Seltan Segued and all of his court to the Church of Rome; and Fresh events in the discovery of Tibet, which they call Great Cathay. Compiled and copied from the letters which the Jesuit Fathers wrote from India during the years 1624, 5, and 6 by Father Manoel da Veiga, of the Society of Jesus, native of Villaviçosa." The first two books of this work discuss in considerable detail the activities of the Jesuits in Ethiopia. Book I (ff. 1-56) is an overview of Ethiopia from a Catholic, and particularly Jesuit, point of view, including who favors Catholicism; rituals that are in dispute; the ransom of Jesuits captured by the Moors; prominent Jesuits (including letters from three of them); and a dozen or so Jesuit foundations (including reliquaries and miracles that have occurred there).Book II (ff. 57-102) recounts the voyage of D. Afonso Mendes from Lisbon to replace Pedro Páez (who had died in 1622) as patriarch of Ethiopia. After leaving Lisbon in March, 1623, D. Afonso arrived at Moçambique in September, at Goa in May 1624, and at the Red Sea port of Beilul in May 1625, whence he crossed the desert into the Ethiopian highlands, reaching Fremona in June 1625 (ff. 57-73 describe the journey). At Fremona, the base of Jesuit missionary efforts, he was received by Emperor Susenyos (r. 1606-1632, throne name Malak Sagad III), who vowed obedience to the pope. D. Afonso issued some orders and celebrated Holy Week. Book II concludes with a description of improvements in Ethiopia since Catholicism was made the official religion, and the defeat of several groups who had rebelled against the new religion. This is a brief episode in the ongoing effort of the Church to bring Coptic Christians in the Catholic fold. Jesuit missionaries had arrived by 1554. The Jesuit Pedro Páez (1561-1622), who arrived in 1603, was so energetic and zealous a missionary that he was known as "the second apostle of Ethiopia." But it was in 1626, while D. Afonso Mendes was patriarch of Ethiopia, that Susenyos declared (for the first and only time in the nation's history) that Roman Catholicism was the official religion of Ethiopia. However, D. Afonso Mendes was a rigidly uncompromising prelate who insisted on suppressing local practices. A series of revolts followed, during which Susenyos and his supporters became considerably less tolerant of the demands of Catholicism. In June 1632 - only four years after this @Relaçam geral was published - Susenyos declared that any of his subjects who wished might follow the Catholic religion, but that no one else would be required to do so. The Jesuits were expelled from Ethiopia in 1633. Ethiopia remained isolated from the Catholic Church until the late nineteenth century.Book III (ff. 103-24) of the @Relaçam geral is entitled "Das Covsas do Reyno do Gram Thybet, a que chamam Catayo, que de nono socederam nos Annos de 625. & 626." It recounts [Attributes: First Edition]

        Pia Desideria Emblematis, Elegiis & affectibus SS. Patrum Illustrata

      Henrici Aertssenii (Printer), Antwerp 1628 - Contemporary cream vellum over cardbord; black lettering on spine. Sewn binding. 457 pp. with bw engravings and woodcuts peppered throughout. Hermanno Hugone (Herman Hugo) was a Jesuit priest, writer and millitary chaplain, born in Brussels in May 1588. Hugo studied philosophy and theology at the University of Louvain, and his spiritual emblem book, Pia Desideria, was the most popular religious emblem book of the 17th century. It went through 42 Latin editions and several translations up to the 18th century. The Pia Desideria first was printed in 1624. Hugo died of the plague in September 1629 at Rheinsberg. Emblem books were popular in 16th- and 17th-century Europe. They were small books containing collections of allegorical illustrations, accompanied by explanatory text, typicallly in the form of poetry or a morality narrative. The black/white original engravings were created by Christopher van Sichem. Very clear, detailed illustrations. The volume consists of three books: Liber Primus - Gemitus Animae Poenitentis (The Groans of the Penitent); Liber Secundus - Desideria Animae Sanctae (The Desire of the Holy); and Liber Tertius - Suspiria Animae Amantis (Sighs of Lovers). Dedicated to Pope Urban VIII. Text in Latin. Some general wear to end papers and pre-title pages. Inside hinges loosening, but everything is solid and intact. Soiling to vellum. Text block very clean, unmarked, and tight. Bookplate of Arthur C. Newsum (English) pasted inside back cover (upside down). Beautiful bookplate. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

William Pemble c.1592-1623, was a puritan divine, born as a son of a clergyman. His father was poor, and his education was provided for by John Barker. After his graduation he removed to Magdalen Hall, where he became reader and tutor. He proceeded M.A. on 9 June 1618, took orders, and was made divinity reader of Magdalen Hall, a post which he filled with great distinction, being an able exponent of Calvinism, and famous as a preacher. He was loyal to the Anglican church, though anxious that the terms of conformity should be made easier to his party. His aquirements in various branches of learning were very remarkable. It would seem that his labours and studies exhausted his strenght and shortened his days. Pemble's works were all posthumous, edited and published by his friends.) [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        SIR FRANCIS DRAKE REVIVED: CALLING UPON THIS DULL OR EFFEMINATE AGE, TO FOLLOW HIS NOBLE STEPS FOR GOLD AND SILVER. BY THIS MEMORABLE RELATION, OF THE RARE OCCURRENCES (NEVER YET DECLARED TO THE WORLD) IN A THIRD VOYAGE, MADE BY HIM INTO THE WEST-INDIES, IN THE YEERES 72. AND 73. WHEN NOMBRE DE DIOS WAS BY HIM AND FIFTIE TWO OTHERS ONELY IN HIS COMPANIE SURPRISED

      London, 1628. Small quarto. Modern tooled calf in contemporary style by Middleton, leather label. Titlepage in expert facsimile. Some dust soiling and toning. Else very good. The second edition, after the first of 1626, of this account of Francis Drake's highly successful raid against the Spanish in Panama in 1572-73, one of his early Caribbean raids of plunder and harassment. Sabin states of this edition: "It differs from that of 1626 in having had the advantage of the incorporation of the errata of the latter date under the personal superintendence of the nephew of the great voyager. The last four leaves are larger than the rest of the book." The expedition of fifty-two Englishmen attempted to seize the Nombre de Dios but were repulsed when Drake was wounded in the shoulder. After many reversals and hardships the British managed to waylay an entire pack train of Peruvian silver, bringing home a fortune. Drake's bold move was approved by Queen Elizabeth, who shared in the plunder, but the politics of his raid on Spain during a period of ostensible peace made it necessary for him to disappear to Ireland for several years after the event. Besides his success in plunder, on this expedition Drake became the first Englishman to see the Pacific Ocean. The book was originally written in a manuscript account of the expedition given to Queen Elizabeth on New Year's Day 1593. In his letter of presentation which serves as the introduction to the book, Drake suggests that, while it is pleasant to think of past victories, he would rather be undertaking new employment of the same sort. The opportunity soon presented itself, with more raids in the West Indies; and just over three years after giving the manuscript to the Queen, the intrepid Drake died at sea off Puerto Rico during a raid on Spanish shipping. Thirty years after Drake's death, courtier Philip Nichols reworked and published the manuscript. The timing of publication of the first edition is significant. James I, Elizabeth's successor, had been eager to conciliate the Spanish, and no publication so openly lauding raids on Spanish property would have been tolerated under his reign. James I died in 1625 and SIR FRANCIS DRAKE REVIVED was published the following year. A most important piece of Drakeiana.
