        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.

      *** Kort over Danmark udarbejdet af den nyere tids største kartograf, Gerard Mercator. Kobberstik. 37 x 44 cm. [ Udgivet af Henricus Hondius i Amsterdam ca. 1630 ]. Gammel, stærk - måske samtidig - håndkolorering. Papiret er med vertikal midterfold som ved udgivelsen. Papirmål: 47,5 x 57 cm. - Fra en udgave af Mercators Atlas med fransk tekst. Kortet blev første gang publiceret i år 1595.. Gerard Mercator (1512-1594). Mercator var aktiv som astronom, kalligraf, kartograf, kobberstikker, instrumentmager, globusmager og landmåler. Han var på en og samme tid videnskabsmand og kunsthåndværker.I de sidste mange år af sit liv arbejdede Mercator på at udgive sine kort i 3 bind. Her blev navnet Atlas for første gang anvendt om en samling af kort. 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. Title within double border of type ornaments. Woodcut illustration on title and one in text. Printed in 2 cols. Bookpl.: Edward Davenport, [Heilbrun], W L G. / Ref. BN Paris (1).

Contemporary vellum.

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..

        L'Histoire des nobles et vaillans chevaliers nommez Milles, et Amis: lesquels en leur vivant furent plains de grandes proüesses.

      Chez la Vefue de Louys Costé, ruë Escuyere, à l'enseigne des Trois *** Couronnées., Rouen 1630 - s.d. (circa 1630). 140 ff. Reliure moderne, en parfaite condition, en cuir, avec dos à 5 nerfs, dorures et ornements. Réparation sur la page titre, autrement les pages intérieures sont en très bonne condition, propres et solides. ÉDITION TRÈS RARE. Seul un exemplaire situé à la Bibliothèque Nationale de France a été trouvé. Ce Roman est un constant hommage rendu à l'amitié, dans la personne de deux chevaliers, nés le même jour, dans le même pays, avec des traits et des formes semblables, des sentiments, des caractères pareils, sous une étoile commune. L'auteur commence d'un style édifiant. « Pour l'honneur et révérence de la Trinité et de la court célestielle de paradis, moi confiant l'infusion du benoît Saint-Esprit, lequel donne et influé sa grâce où il lui plait, ay entrepris d'escrire une histoire des faicts advenus à la louange de deux vaillans chevaliers nommez Milles et Amys. » S'ensuivent 114 chapitres surchargés d'aventures. Photos disponibles sur demande. // Modern calf, covers with gilt border and inside corner ornaments, gilt spine on 5 raised bands, [140] ff. (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. Title within double border of type ornaments. Woodcut illustration on title and one in text. Printed in 2 cols. Bookpl.: Edward Davenport, [Heilbrun], W L G. / Ref. BN Paris (1).

      Juan Gonçalez,, Madrid: 1630 - 8 hojas incluyendo un magnífico retrato del autor grabado por Courbes, 125 folios y hoja de colofón. Encuadernación moderna en pergamino rígido de protección. La portada tiene una restauración de antiguo para borrar alguna inscripción. Palau 356475. Primera Edición.El Laurel de Apolo se presenta como la crónica o memorial de lo sucedido en las Cortes convocadas por la Fama en el Parnaso, "para que a ellas viniesen los pretendientes de mayores méritos". En el desfile hacia la cumbre del monte Helicona concurre gran número de ingenios, y la voz narrativa de Lope enumera, califica y define modalidades líricas y realza textos, de más de trescientos escritores, casi todos poetas de la época. Pero el Laurel no es un simple catálogo de ingenios notables, agrupados por ciudades y ríos, de primera y segunda línea, trabados por amistad o por lecturas, sino todo un gran mapa de referencias literarias, históricas y míticas. Un gran compendio cultural e histórico que se acompasa con la observación crítica, la reyerta personal, la crítica histórica y las variadas referencias autobiográficas a cargo de su autor. El Laurel de Apolo asombra al lector por los numerosos textos citados, por la variedad de autores aludidos, tanto de la Antigüedad como contemporáneos; delata una gran cultura literaria, una excelente memoria y un rico acervo de lecturas, variadas y dispersas.

        Relations of the most famous kingdomes and Common-wealths thorowout the World

      London: John Haviland, 1630. Small quarto, a good copy but bound without the map mentioned on the title-page; contemporary calf, spine and joints wearing, label chipped. "Lately found out, and by our latest Cosmographers" Early English edition of Botero's famous chronicle. Translated into several languages from the original Italian, it was widely read not only by travellers but also by 'the growing number of politicians who believed that geographical knowledge was essential to them' (Robert Shackleton, Modern Language Review, July 1948). This English edition in particular was one of the early compendia of geography to have real social and political impact, and was recognised as a vade mecum of early modern thought on the subject which included practical advice for travellers: to exercise but to avoid tennis, to dance if young, to take water with wine, and to carry few books - or preferably none - so as to avoid trouble with the Inquisition. First published in English as The travellers Breviat in 1601, a succession of later editions incorporated the newest information and revisions. The information relating to America is in the "Sixth Booke. Of America, commonly called West India" (pp. 625-36), and has notes on Columbus, Vespucci and Magellan. There are descriptions of some ten specific regions, including Mexico, Virginia, and "Nova Francia." The last book, entitled "The Seventh Booke. America Magellanica, or Peruana", features a description of South America including the lands beyond the Straits of Darien, and is positively envious of the gold and other minerals being gathered there by the Spanish. This section also includes a significant paragraph on Terra Australis, the land that 'was lately found out, and by our latest Cosmographers… as comprehending many large regions (viz.) Psitacorum regio, Terra del feugo (sic), Beac, Lucach, and Maletur… But what people inhabit them, what fashions they use, or what profitable commodity fit for the life of man they afford, it hath not yet beene by any man discovered'. Unfortunately, as is often the case with early printed works, the map called for on the title page is missing. STC lists some 10 copies but can confirm the presence of the map in only 3; it would seem to have been avidly pursued by map-collectors. Where present, the map is a later state of that issued in The World Encompassed by Sir F. Drake (London, 1628).

        Autograph document signed, in Latin and French, 1 October 1623. 2½ pages. Offered here with the first obtainable edition of Rey's only published work.

      One of the rarest autographs in the history of science. The only autograph in private hands from the hand of French physician and chemist Jean Rey, author of <i>Essays de Jean Rey... Sur la recherche de la cause pour laquelle l'estain & le plomb augmentent de poids quand on les calcine</i> (1630). This extraordinarily rare book, of which only a few copies are known, was Rey's only publication; it anticipated by more than one hundred years Lavoisier's discovery that the calcination of metals involves combination with air - a discovery fundamental to the overthrow of the phlogiston theory and the foundation of modern chemistry. Lavoisier published his discovery in 1774; the following year, chemist Pierre Bayen alerted Lavoisier to the existence of Rey's <i>Essays</i>. Lavoisier was so impressed with "the apparent modernity of Rey's ideas" (McKie, p. xl) that he at first believed Rey's work to be a forgery; he later spoke of the work with admiration. In 1777 a second edition of Rey's <i>Essays</i>, edited by Nicolas Gobet, was published in Paris [i.e., the edition being offered together with the autograph document]; this edition - the earliest obtainable - has also become rare (see Duveen). Of this edition Neville writes: "A milestone work in the history of chemistry, describing for the first time that metals gain in weight on calcination (by combining with the then-unknown oxygen of the air). The first edition (Bazas, 1630) is extremely rare: only seven copies are known. Also rare, this second edition [i.e., the offered] contains a new preface and footnotes by the editor, Nicolas Gobet. Reprinted is a letter bt Pierre Bayen, who first drew attention to the <i>Essays</i> in 1775; letters between Rey and Mersenne; experiments on the manipulation of air over water by Moitrel d'Element... Lavoisier orgiginaly believed the 1777 <i>Essays</i> to be a forgery, but by 1792, in his <i>Mémoires de Chimie</i>, he gave an appreciative account of Rey's book." <br/><br/> Douglas McKie, in the historical introduction to his facsimile edition of Rey's <i>Essays</i> (1951), relates what little is known of Rey's life, describing in detail the scant documentary evidence that remains, and reproducing examples of Rey's handwriting. The University of Montpellier, where Rey studied medicine from 1605 to 1609, preserves a signed 6-line inscription in Latin written by Rey when he matriculated at the University (1605), as well as four other documents bearing Rey's signature: two consilia (1608 and 1609), Rey's licence en medicine (1609) and a document Rey signed upon receiving his doctorate (1609). Apart from these, the only other signed autograph document of Rey's is the one we are offering here, "containing his signed prescriptions and dietary for a distinguished patient living near Toulouse, Baron de Fourquevaux, whose father had been Governor of Narbonne and ambassador of several French Kings, and had escorted to Scotland Marie de Guise, bride of James V and mother of Mary Stewart... After 1623 we have no further record of Rey until the appearance of his Essays, dated from Le Bugue, lieu de ma naissance, on 1 January 1630" (McKie, p. xix).<br/><br/> It is hard to imagine any autograph in the history of science that would be rarer than this! Our 2½ page autograph document was at one time owned by Dr. Pierre Lemay, who published a study of Rey in the Bullétin de la Société française d'histoire de la médecine 32 (1938): 148; see McKie, p. xix (n). <i>Dictionary of Scientific Biography</i>. Partington, <i>History of Chemistry</i>, II, pp. 631-36.. Autograph document: one leaf folded vertically 261 x 375 mm. Lower part of center fold reinforced, minor soiling, but fine otherwise. 18th century inscription in French on the last page. Book: a very fine copy in contemporary French calf, pp xxxii, 216 and 2 full-page engraved plates
