CLUVERIUS, Philippus.
Leiden, Elzevir, 1631. With printed half-title, verso engr. portrait-frontispiece of Clüver, engr. title within figurated border, 11 double-page maps, and 26 engr. plates (of which 4 are double-page) woodcut head-piece. (36) leaves, 748, (16) pp. (first 2 ff. a bit frayed at fore-edge). Folio. Contemporary vellum (slightly worn). Leiden, Elzevir, 1631. The second and enlarged edition (first 1616) of the Germania Antiqua of Philip Clüver (1580-1622) of Danzig, a study of the ancient geography, peoples, culture, history, and language of Germany which took much material from Tacitus and Diodorus Siculus, among other ancient literary sources. With Clüver's Germania Antiqua begins the modern historic and scientific aproach to regional geography. Clüver had an illustrious legal career, but had been drawn to an interest in geography and antiquity by his teacher, Scaliger in Leiden. Most of his works were published posthumously. His output was enormous and he set new standards of methodology for both historiography and bibliography that had a deep and long-reaching impact on both fields. - A good copy. - Willems 345; Brunet II, 113; ADB IV, 35f.

"MORTON, THOMAS"
London: "printed by W. Stansby, for Robert Mylbourne", 1631. London: "printed by W. Stansby, for Robert Mylbourne". 1631. "First edition, folio, pp. [20], 255, [1], 143, [16]; contemporary full speckled calf, covers ruled in blind, edges of covers with gilt rules, contemporary manuscript paper label on spine, sprinkled edges; minor rubbing; fine. & & Thomas Morton, at the time Bishop of Coventry and Lichfield, and later of Durham, was much admired by both James I and Charles I. He appears to have been a man of considerable charm, and a kind and enthusiastic patron of deserving scholars. Most of his writings were devoted to exposing the fallacies of Romish doctrines, but the content of his books is perhaps not well indicated by the rather strident tone of some of his titles. ""They display great learning and an intimate acquaintance with the arguments of his antagonists. It is no small praise that they exhibit none of the bitterness and scurrility which too commonly disfigure the polemics of the age"" (DNB). & & STC 18189; CBEL I, 1996."

Geraldini, Alexandri:
Rome: Guilelmi Facciotti, 1631.. [16],284,[36]pp. Extra engraved titlepage. 12mo. Contemporary limp vellum, yapp edges, manuscript title on spine. Later library shelf label. Lower half of rear hinge broken. Light tanning throughout. Overall very good. In a half morocco and cloth box. A primary account of the earliest period of American discovery, first published here more than a hundred years after it was written. Taken from a manuscript originally written in 1523 by this friend and companion of Columbus, this is one of the earliest written descriptions of the discovery and condition of the West Indies. It was Geraldini's support of Columbus' argument for a spherical globe that enabled Columbus to be heard by the official council charged with evaluating his proposed voyage. Later, Geraldini himself went to Santo Domingo as the new see's first bishop, and the present text also includes an account of his voyage and a description of the island. He writes that the native race has nearly been extinguished and that he is sending back to Europe two turkeys. His original manuscript was composed in 1523, thus his work precedes that of Oviedo and supplants the great explorer as the first European writer to mention the turkey. "A very scarce and curious volume on the discovery of the West Indies..." - Sabin. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 631/43. SABIN 27116. MEDINA (BHA) 890. STREIT II:1600. JCB (3)II:236-37.

JONSON (Ben)
By the Lady Elizabeths Servants. And then dedicated to King Iames, of Most Blessed Memorie; By the Author, Beniamin Iohnson [sic]. London, Printed by I.B[eale]. for Robert Allot, and are To be sold at the signe of the Beare, in Pauls Church-yard, 1631. Sm.f’cap folio, in fours; text printed within ruled borders, with side-notes; wood-cut head-pieces and large historiated initials; without the blank [A]1, the first leaf being the title-leaf; pp.[iii - xii (not paginated)]+88; A<SUP>5</SUP>, B - I, K - M<SUP>4</SUP>; early, possibly contemporary, diced calf, later re-backed, with red lettering-piece and plain end-papers. Old calf a trifle scratched, and very slightly worn at corners; spine a little rubbed at head, with slight wear to extreme edge of lettering-piece; blank lower-margin of title-page (but not the verso) a little embrowned (apparently by contact with the turnovers of the calf); A5 with two short marginal tears not approaching the borders, and a trifle dusty on verso; blank lower fore-corner lacking to leaf F4; minute, barely visible, restorations to extreme lower fore-corner of last two leaves; otherwise a nice, unpressed, copy. This copy is printed on thick paper. Three of Ben Jonson’s plays were first printed in 1631: ‘Bartholomew Fayre’, ‘The Divell is an Asse’ and ‘The Staple of Newes’. The original intention seems to have been to issue them together, as was done in fact in 1640 (with the addition of a general title-page giving ‘The Staple of Newes’ as the second title rather than the third), and this is supp … [Click Below for Full Description]

Lucanus, Marcus Annaeus [Lucan]
London: Thomas Jones (pr. by Aug. Mathews) Small 8vo. Engr. frontis., [146] ff.. 1631 [bound with] May, Thomas. A continvation of the subiect of Lucan's historicall poem till the death of Ivlivs Cæser the 2d edition corrected and amended. London: James Boler, 1633. Small 8vo. A?-K8(-K8); [79 of 80] ff. Second edition of May's esteemed English verse translation, following Thomas Jones's first printing of 1627. Lucan (A.D. 39?-65), born in Cordoba, Spain, and raised in Rome, was the grandson of the elder Seneca, nephew of the younger Seneca, and the brother of the Gallio mentioned in Acts 18; he published the Pharsalia in A.D. 62 or 63, but it seems likely that his poetic talent aroused the jealously of the vain Nero, as he forbade him to write or even plead in the courts, and then later compelled him to commit suicide for alleged treason. The editio princeps of the Pharsalia was printed in Rome by Sweynheym and Pannartz in 1469; Christopher Marlowe published the first English translation of any part of the Pharsalia, his rendition of the first book, in 1600, with a 1614 effort by Sir Arthur Gorges being the only other such to precede May's standard-setting 1626 English version of books one through three. In the present volume, this great epic poem in May's translation is accompanied by its translator's English rendition of his own sequel, originally written in Latin verse. This Continuation advances the action through Cleopatra's seduction of Caesar (May depicts the Egyptian queen with "snowie necke" and "golden tresses"), the death of Cato, and various additional battles be … [Click Below for Full Description]

HONDIUS, Jodocus, Jr. (1594-1629) and Henricus (1597-1651)
Amsterdam: Henrico Hondius, 1631 [but 1633]. Copper-engraved map, with original outline colour, German text on verso (centerfold reinforced, in very good condition). 18 x 21 1/8 inches. The celebrated Hondius map of the Americas, in the third state. Originally issued by Jodicus Hondius Jr. in 1618, this map of the Americas was modified by Henricus Hondius following his brother's death. The original map was based on Jodicus Hondius the elder's map of 1606, along with the Willem Blaeu maps of 1608 and 1617. The map would form Europe's geographical understanding of North and South America for the first half of the 17th century. Several major corrections have been made compared to the 1606 Hondius map. The St. Lawrence Bay and River are much improved, and at the opposite end, Tierra del Fuego has been separated, however nebulously, from the great Terra Incognita, thought (correctly) to exist since ancient times. The rather assertive outgrowth of Virginia in the 1606 map has been modified to reflect more accurately the eastward swelling at North Carolina. Interestingly, Henricus Hondius' next map of North America (1636) adopted the increasingly popular notion that California was an island, and greatly advanced that belief. The map includes inset maps of the North and South Poles. The nicely drawn ships and sea monsters add to the pleasant aesthetic effect of the map. Burden, The Mapping of North America I, 192

These endpapers are not original, and are also stained around the edges (measuring 0.6mm), where they have taken on the brown colour of the leather. Virtually no foxing to pages, though there is a little discolouration due to age. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
