        Candia Primum Magno.Dividenita suit Venetis à Bonifacio Montis-Ferratensi." "Candia cum Insulis aliquot circa Græciam

      Greece: Amsterdam Hondius, Henricus. 1630. Copper engraved map of Crete by Mercator, published b yHondius from "Gerardi Mercatoris Atlas sive Cosmographia .." Original old colour; Latin text to verso. The map first appears in the second part of Mercator's Atlas in 1589 [Me11]. The map of Crete has 6 smaller maps above of Corfu/Kerkyra; Zante/ Zakinthos; Milos; Nicsia/Naxos; Santorini and Scarpanto/Karpathos with the title in the middle. Good dark impression; light toning; some soiling and light spotting mainly to blank margins ; paper fault to lower right margin with old repair. Gerard Mercator (1512-1594) Originally a student of philosophy came under the influence of Gemma Frisius, the founder of the Belgian school of Geography, and became interested in mathematics - both in the theory and the practical application. With these skills he soon became an expert in land surveying and cartography, as well as a skilled engraver. His first maps were published in 1537 (Palestine), and 1538 (a map of the world), although his main occupation at this time was globe-making. He later moved to Duisburg, in Germany, where he produced his outstanding wall maps of Europe and of Britain. In 1569 he published his masterpiece, the twenty-one-sheet map of the world, constructed on what is now known as Mercator's projection. It was during this period, while teaching cosmography at Duisburg, that Mercator realised the pressing need for a modern collection of maps to supersede the Ptolemaic atlases. This project was gradually expanded to be a complete description of the Universe, both heaven and earth, with other volumes on the Creation, Genealogy and History and a Chronology. The description of the earth was to be in two parts, a modern geography and a Ptolemaic atlas, a massive and over-ambitious project. In fact, only the Chronology and the Ptolemaic Geographia were completed in his lifetime, and it was left to his son, Rumold, to complete and publish the world atlas in 1595. Entitled Atlas, sive Cosmographicae Meditationes de Fabrica Mundi, this was the first time the name "Atlas" was applied to a bound collection of maps, and, like Mercator's projection, has remained in everyday use to this day. After Rumold's death in 1599, the plates for the atlas were published by Gerard Jr. Following his death in 1604, the printing stock was bought at auction by Jodocus Hondius, and re-issued well into the seventeenth century. Johannes Janssonius (approx. 1588-1664) came from a family of printers and publishers and learned the book printing trade at an early age. In 1612 he married the daughter of Jodocus Hondius and thus became a member of one of the most important publishing families in the Netherlands. During the 1630s he went into partnership with his brother-in-law Henricus Hondius and published more editions of the Mercator/Hondius atlases with the addition of the name Jansson. He grew their publishing house in the fields of geography and cartography and published newly compiled world, sea and city atlases, always competing with the Blaeu publishing house. His main works were the "Atlas Majoris Appendix" (1639), the six-volume "Atlas Novus" (1638 ff.) and the monumental "Atlas Major" comprising eleven volumes (1647).

        Plaza Universal de todas las ciencias y artes.

      Perpiñán, Luys Roure 1630 - 4º menor (19,2 x 14,6 cm) 8 h. inc. port. con escudo grabado en madera, 379 fols. Pergamino de época. Al final incluye un grabado al cobre plegado con la representación de un tablero del Juego de la Oca de temática heráldica que no recogen las bibliografías ni en los ejemplares registrados en la bibliografía. Segunda edición, dedicada a Hierónimo Perarnau, de la adaptación que Suárez de Figueroa hizo del famoso libro enciclopédico sobre diversas materias, ciencias y oficios que 30 años antes había publicado Tomaso Garzoni —con el título La piazza universale di tutte le professioni del mondo— y que hizo que se convirtiera en uno de los autores italianos del siglo XVI más traducidos en el extranjero. Gran lector y excelente conocedor de la lengua, Suárez de Figueroa tuvo un amplio saber en mitología, historia y también en diferentes oficios y disciplinas, científicas o no. Su mayor ambición fue alcanzar el prestigio de los mejores preceptistas de su tiempo, con quienes compartía una concepción aristotélica de la literatura que asimiló en Italia y fue plasmando en algunos de sus libros. El grabado lleva por título “Demonstración y Reglas del Blasón, en que se comprehende el Juego de la Oca y de las Samas, para que divirtiéndose con ellos, sepan entender las piezas, esmaltes, y ornatos de que se compone un escudo de armas.” Al pie del grabado, y después de las reglas del juego se lee: “Esta estampa. de Pablo Minguet, gravador de sellos y láminas, se hallarán en Madrid en su casa.” [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A PERAMBULATION OF KENT: Conteining the Description, Hystorie, and Customes of that Shire. Written in the yeere 1570. by William Lambarde of Lincolns Inn Gent. The third Edition, Corrected and Enlarged.

      Printed by R. Hodgkinsonne, for D. Pakeman, living at the Rainbow in Fleetstreet, neer the inner Temple Gate. [n.d. but c.1630], London - 8vo. 4.25 x 6.25 inches. xvi + 656 pp. + [24] pp. Because of an irregularity in the placing of the leaves, 2T-2T3 appear at the end instead of between 2S8 and 2U1; however the catchwords correspond and all the leaves called for in the register are present. Bound in original calf with gilt borders; later rebacked with new endpapers; spine in compartments with raised bands with contrasting maroon morocco title label, gilt which may be original. Extremities worn and some foxing throughout but still a good crisp copy. Decorated by headpiece vignettes and initials. The rarest of all the editions of the Perambulation. ESTC records only two UK copies, in the British Library and at Cambridge and one in the US. The standard of printing in this edition occasionally leaves something to be desired and it is apparent in the showing through of leaves in the 'a' gathering (dedication and description) where printing has taken place on wet paper. The 'Carde of the Beacons' was omitted although there is a catchword for it on p. 68. The dating of this edition is problematic. Although ESTC, quoting STC suggests 1640, this is given by Smith and Upcott as being the date of the fourth edition; hence this third edition must have been a little earlier and we have therefore placed it around 1630.

De første to bind af Mercators Atlas blev udgivet i 1585 og 1589, tredie og sidste bind - med Skandinavien og de Arktiske områder - udkom i 1595, året efter Mercators død. I 1602 udkom værket igen i en komplet udgave. Herefter var det ikke længere Mercators arvinger, der stod for udgivelsen af det højt ansete værk.I år 1604 købte Jodocus Hondius kobberpladerne, og i de næste ca. 30 år udsendte Jodocus Hondius og sønnerne Henricus og Jodocus II mange udvidede udgaver af Mercators Atlas - på flere forskellige sprog - som dominerede korthandelen i den første trediedel af det 17. århundrede

(age-toned). Very good copy on coarse paper. Extremely rare Rouen edition of an adaptation of the medieval story of Amis and Amyles (Amile). Physically identical, Ami and Amile are spiritual twins, conceived and born on the same day; their meeting is preordained, and together they go to serve Charlemagne. The allegorically named Ami substitutes without anyone's knowledge for Amile in a judicial duel, which Amile cannot fight himself because he knows that he is guilty, as accused, of having slept with the emperor's daughter. Ami swears his innocence and wins. Charlemagne, believing it is Amile who is innocent, proceeds to betroth the daughter to him; Ami, who cannot now reveal his true identity, accepts her. As he is already married, God punishes his prospective bigamy by afflicting him with leprosy. His wife drives him away from home. After years of illness, he meets Amile again, who learns from an angel that he can cure Ami only by bathing him in the blood of his own children. With some misgivings Amile cuts his young sons' throats, Ami is healed, and a miracle restores the children to life. The friendship of the 2 heroes surpasses all other social relationships in the text to such an extent that in the end all other ties are abandoned and the friends leave France together.

With: (2) MITELLI, Agostino. [Model cartouches.] All[e]r[!] Ill[ustrissi]mo. Sig[no]r: Fran[ces]co: Maria Zambeccari.[Paris?], Rousel, "1636" [ca. 1641/42?].

Cartouches de diferentes inventions, tres utilles a plussieurs sortes de personnes.Paris, Francois l'Anglois dit Ch(i)artres, [ca. 1645?]. 2 series of engravings, each with an engraved title-print with an elaborately decorated cartouche plus 12 numbered cartouches with scenes. Plate 1 in each series is signed by [Daniel] Rabel (ca. 1578-1637) in Paris as artist and engraver. The title-prints name the publisher Ch(i)artres. 4 works in volume. Folio (32 x 20 cm). Contemporary vellum.

      Ad 1: BAL 187 note; Fruling, Ornament prints 9099-9100 note; ad 2: Fuhring 1115-1137 note; ad 3: Berlin Kat. 309; Fruhling 1040-1051 (lacking title plate) & 1052-1064; Le Blanc III, p. 263, Rabel 3 (one series only). Four series of models for architectural ornament, bound together in contemporary vellum. Ad 1: First printing from the Danckerts plates of a series of ornamental designs for altars and chimney-pieces, richly and beautifully executed with decorative carvings, sculpture and paintings in the influential styles popular in France under Louis XIII. In 1630 Jean Barbet, draughtsman and engraver, signed a two-year contract with the publisher Melchior Tavernier to make the drawings for the present series. Tavernier published it at Paris in 1633, engraved by Abraham Bosse. Cornelis Danckerts copied the series in mirror image.Ad 2: Paris edition, with imprint "Rousel exc.", of a beautiful series of large ornamental cartouches, originally designed by Agostino Mitelli, Italian architect and engraver. The present Paris edition has 16 plates, all containing cartouches. Ad 3: Two series of very refined and beautiful cartouches, but instead of blank cartouches as in ad 2, these all surround beautifully engraved scenes. They are printed from the plates of the first edition in their second state. The first series puts more emphasis on people and their activities within the landscape, and the second on the often mountainous landscapes themselves. Some of the cartouches are fantastic and bizarre, with sometimes grotesque real and imaginary creatures, such as the elephant heads in plate 1 of the first series, their trunks curling around to form the lower corners of the cartouche. Daniel Rabel, French artist and engraver, also published model series of costumes, birds and insects. His present cartouches are fine examples of style and fashion in Louis XIII's France. From the library of Lunsingh Scheurleer. In very good condition, with only an occasional minor smudge or marginal stain, and with ample margins. The boards are somewhat bowed and the vellum slightly stained, but the binding is generally also very good.

        All The Works of John Taylor

      /FONT>, 1630 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Six volumes bound in half leather with marble paper covered boards. Exquisitely illustrated with woodcut engravings, head and tail pieces and illuminated letters. Very scarce. The pagination is incomplete. ESTC lists the pagination as [12], 148, [2], 93, 92-200, 225-343, [1], 14, 13-146 pp. These volumes contain no title page and have been bound out of sequence. The first section is complete in two volumes. The last section is bound nextin Vols 3, 4 and 5,and is missingleaf Ddd3(p39-40) and the final page (p145-6). Volume 6 has the first 170 pages of the second section. Pages 170-200 are not present. The final pagination of the second section(225-343) is bound at the end of Volume 5. John Taylor (1578 - 1653) was an English poet who dubbed himself The Water Poet. He was born in Gloucester. After his waterman apprenticeship he served (1596) in Essex's fleet, and was present at Flores in 1597 and at the siege of Cadiz. He spent much of his life as a Thames waterman, a member of the guild of boatmen that ferried passengers across the River Thames in London, in the days when the London Bridge was the only passage between the banks. He became a member of the ruling oligarchy of the guild, serving as its clerk; it is mainly through his writings that history is familiar with the watermen's disputes of 1641-42, in which an attempt was made to democratize the leadership of the Company. He details the uprisings in the pamphlets Iohn Taylors Manifestation . . . and To the Right Honorable Assembly . . . (Commons Petition), and in John Taylors Last Voyage and Adventure of 1641. Taylor discusses the watermen's disputes with the theatre companies (who moved the theaters from the south bank to the north in 1612, depriving the ferries of traffic) in The True Cause of the Watermen's Suit Concerning Players (written in 1613 or 1614). He also addresses the coachmen, in his tracts An Errant Thief (1622) and The World Runnes on Wheeles (1623). He was a prolific, if rough-hewn, (wit rather than poet), writer with over one hundred and fifty publications in his lifetime. Many were gathered into the compilation All the Workes of John Taylor the Water Poet (London, 1630). Although his work was not sophisticated, he was a keen observer of people and styles in the seventeenth century, and as such his work is often studied by social historians. One example is his 1621 work Taylor's Motto, which included a list of then-current card games and diversions. On a note of trivia, Taylor is one of the few early authors of a palindrome that can be credited as such: in 1614, he wrote Lewd did I live, & evil I did dwel. He also wrote a poem about Thomas Parr, a man who supposedly lived to the age of 152. He was also the author of a constructed language called Barmoodan. Condition: The bindingsare tight and firm. There is very little wear to the extremities. The title pages are missing, as well as the pages mentioned above. Internally the pages are generally clean although age-toned with the occasional handling mark and odd spot, and water staining to the edges of a few pages. A few pages have ink annotations and the occasional smallink stain. A few pages have numbers written in ink at the top. Some of the bindings have been cut very close at the edge resulting in slight loss to the edges of the woodcuts of the kings and queens on pages 298-320 of Volume 5 and also loss to a few letters of text at the edge of pages 297, 303, 307, 311, and315. There is similar loss to the very edge of the first letters of each line on page 150 of Volume 6. There are some small repairs to the edges of a few pages in Volume 6, but this does not affect the text. There are small rubber stamp marks to the front pastedowns. Overall the volumes are in good only condition..
