The folding plate depicts a bird's-eye view of Constantinople with its prominent buildings. The chronicle itself is illustrated by numerous portraits of rulers. The costume plates were originally designed for the travel account of Nicolas de Nicolay (1517-83), first published in 1567 (cf. Lipperheide Lb 2), who had visited the Ottoman court as a diplomat in the services of King Henry II. - Hinges and extremeties professionally repaired.

        Ovid's Metamorphosis. Englished, Mythologiz'd, And Represented in Figures. [with] An Essay to the Translation of Virgil's Æneis. By G.S. [George Sandys].

      First illustrated edition thus. 4to. (18), 38, (6 pages erratically numbered, though text continuous), 51-124, 145-487, (1), 491-549, (1) pp. Bound in tan full calf by the Edinburgh bookbinders Henderson and Bissett, spine with raised bands, gilt lettered maroon label, gilt decorated to the other compartments, marbled endpapers featuring the book label of T. Leonard Ellis to the front pastedown and with his ownership inscription to the succeeding flyleaf, the later bookplate of Everett E. Whitney to the rear pastedown with the discreet ticket of the Glasgow booksellers Kerr and Richardson underneath, all edges gilt. Engraved title and 16 plates as usual, extra illustrated with 25 fine additional plates; a manuscript list describing them as by the "First Masters" including Picart, Pierino (Perino del Vaga), Raphael Urbino, Titian, Van Eyck and Guido Reni amongst others, the additional plates generally mounted on a thicker paper stock or card and sometimes cropped with the titles or artists' names affixed to the versos, some of the larger plates folding. The joints expertly repaired, a unique and magnificently embellished copy. Sandys originally published his translation of the first five books of the Metamorphoses in 1621, before leaving for Virginia; the Virginia Company being managed by his brother Edwin. His first full translation of the work appeared in 1626, of which this is the most celebrated edition featuring his revisions and also, for the first time, illustrations. Thomas Leonard Ellis (c. 1862-1897) was the son of Thomas Ellis, founder of the North British Ironworks of Coatbridge, North Lanarkshire. The book was almost certainly extra illustrated at the time of the binding, so it is likely that Ellis either commissioned the work himself or purchased it from the Glasgow booksellers Kerr and Richardson who had the work carried out. Alternatively, the ticket could suggest that the book was purchased from Ellis' estate on his early demise. The volume subsequently making it directly or indirectly across the Atlantic into the collection of Everett E. Whitney (1861-1937), a lumber merchant of Hingham, Massachusetts. Some of the supplied plates are more clearly identified or are identifiable than others. The engraving after Raphael, bound in at the tenth book, accords with that held by the British Museum (no. V,6.84), and dated by them as 1630-50. The image has been cropped, but Raphael's name and the other legend is mounted on the verso. The engraving after Perino del Vaga featuring Venus and Vulcan at the Forge, here bound in the thirteenth book, matches that held by the Biblioteca Casanatense in Rome. They describe it as a 16th century printing, being engraved by Giorgio Ghisi and published by Giovanni Giacomo De Rossi. The engraving after Titian of Vulcan and Ceres, bound in at the fifth book, can also be found in the British Museum catalogue, number 1917,1208.529. Described as an engraving by Pieter van Gunst dating from 1710-14, after a slightly earlier mezzotint from the same series by John Smith. Indeed a number of mezzotints are included in this copy, including "Perseus Delivers Andromeda from ye Sea Monster" engraved by John Simon after Guido Reni (BM catalogue 2010,7081.3441).

        Apologia seconda per la serenissima casa di Savoia in risposta alle scandalose invettive intitolate Prima, e Seconda Sauoina. Nella quale si prova, ch'i Duchi di Savoia niente affatto possedono ingiustamente usurpato alla Corona di Francia, anziche sono stati gli Amici più costanti de' suoi Re, come più antichi di Parentado. Fatta in Francese, e nuovamente tradotta, & aumentata d'ordine si S.A.S.

      Eredi di Gio. Dominico Tarino, 1632. In 4°, (mm. 210 x 153), pp. (44), 270, (10), bella pergamena semirigida coeva con titolo manoscritto al dorso. Stemma sabaudo inciso al frontespizio. Testo inquadrato entro filetto tipografico. Dedica a stampa al Cardinale Antonio Barberini. Alcuni capilettera e fregi tipografici istoriati in xilografia. Prima edizione in lingua italiana, posteriore di un anno all'originale francese, impressa da Geoffroy Dufour. L'opera fu stesa in risposta al pamphlet antisavoiardo "La Premiére et seconde savoisienne" del 1630, nel quale si accusavano i duchi di Savoia di aver usurpato diversi possedimenti dei sovrani francesi, che venivano pertanto invitati a diffidare della casata sabauda. Pierre Monod (1586-1644), entrato giovanissimo nella Compagnia di Gesù, nel 1628 divenne rettore del Collegio di Torino. Entrato nelle grazie di Cristina di Francia, sposa di Vittorio Amedeo I, divenne prima il direttore spirituale del Duca e successivamente ambasciatore dei Savoia alla corte di Luigi XIII di Francia, dimostrando grandi doti di negoziatore. Il testo presenta lievi bruniture e fioriture. Bella copia del tutto genuina.

        HISTORIA VERDADERA DE LA CONQUISTA DE LA NUEVA-ESPANA.

      Madrid: en la Imprenta del Reyno, 1632, [but probably somewhat later]. - [6],254,[6] leaves. Small folio. Contemporary limp vellum, spine title in manuscript, two vellum ties at fore-edge. Sizable marginal tear to E7, lower corner of F3 torn away, neither affecting text. Very light staining along fore- edge and in upper corner of initial leaves, occasional stray ink marks in lower corner, but generally clean internally. Very good plus. The classic account of the Spanish conquest of Mexico by, as the titlepage identifies the author, "uno de sus Conquistadores." Written in response to Lopez de Gomara's laudatory biography of Cortés, in which "El Marques" sometimes seems to have conquered the Aztec empire single-handedly, the HISTORIA VERDADERA. remained in manuscript for some fifty years until Alonso Remon, the Chronicler General of the Mercederian Order, edited the text for publication. It is the classic eyewitness account of the conquest of Mexico, and will always be one of the primary sources for that extraordinary saga. "Díaz wrote from the point of view of the man in the ranks; he had served as a junior officer throughout the campaign, from the landing at Vera Cruz to Cortés's march against Olid in Honduras. He had fought the Tlaxcalans, he had battled his way across the causeway on Noche Triste, he had been all through the siege of Mexico. In all he tells us that he had taken part in one hundred and nineteen battles, and his body was covered with wounds. For this service his only rewards were an Aztec princess and a magistracy in Guatemala, but had the satisfaction that comes alone from distinguished service, and his heroic robustness shows itself in every line of his book. There is nothing urbane or polished about Díaz's HISTORIA. It is the unadorned, day-to-day account of one of Cortés's soldiers; its very simplicity and frankness give it a genuine flavour, which together with the great events it depicts, makes it one of the most powerful and stirring soldier's narratives ever written" - Penrose. A foundation work for any collection of Americana, offered in a very good copy in a contemporary binding. This edition, which has a 1632 title on the date, is evidently a pirated edition, possibly published somewhat later than 1632. the first edition contains an engraved titlepage and one additional chapter at the end of the text.

Conteyning the Old Testament and the New Newlie Translated out of ye Original Tongues and with the former Translations diligently compared and revised by his Maiesties speciall Commandement. Appointed to be read in Churches [WITH] The vvhole booke of Psalmes. Collected into English meeter by Thomas Sternhold, Iohn Hopkins and others, conferred with the Hebrewe, with apt notes to sing them with all. Set forth and allowed to be sung in all churches, of all the people together, and after morning and evening prayer, as also before and after sermons: and moreover in priuate houses for their godly solace and comfort, laying apart all ungodly songs and ballads, which tend onely to the nourishing of vice, and corrupting of youth.

Early eighteenth century black morocco, gilt borders composed of decorative rolll tools to covers, spine in seven compartments, red morocco label to second, others richly gilt, raised bands, all edges gilt. Metal borders and furnishings to covers, metal bosses to corners, metal lozenge to centre; clasps defective, last leaf of Psalms laid down else a fine clean, complete example. A well-preserved, complete example of the King James Bible, with the Speed map of the Holy-Land. The bible is the single most important book in the history of ideas and the King James version is the most widely-published text in the English language. First printed by the King's Printer Robert Barker, this was the third translation into English to be approved by the English Church authorities. The first was the Great Bible commissioned in the reign of King Henry VIII (1535), and the second was the Bishops' Bible of 1568. In England under the 1408 Constitutions of Oxford, it was strictly forbidden to translate the Bible into the native tongue. This ban was vigorously enforced by Cardinal Wolsey and the Lord Chancellor, Sir Thomas More, in an attempt to prevent the rise of English 'Lutheranism'. The only authorised version of the Bible was St Jerome's Vulgate, which was understood only by highly-educated people. By Shakespeare's time, England had split with Rome, and the political scenery had changed markedly. Bibles in English were now available, such as Henry VIII's authorised 'Great Bible'; the 'Geneva Bible', copiously furnished with Protestant footnotes; and even the Church's 'Bishop's Bible', published as a failed response to the popularity of the Geneva. King James I abolished the death penalty attached to English Bible translation, and commissioned a new version that would use the best available translations and sources, and importantly, be free of biased footnotes and commentaries. To this end he convened the Hampton Court Conference in 1604 where the new English version was conceived. The translation is widely considered a towering achievement in English literature, as both beautiful and scholarly. It has contributed numerous idioms to English, more than any other single source, including Shakespeare; examples include feet of clay and reap the whirlwind. The translation committee of 50 scholars drew on many sources, The result was first printed in 1611, and was 'appointed to be read in churches'. With interesting provenance: William Lowndes (1652-1724) was a leading figure at the Treasury where he became an opponent of the economic theories of John Locke. There is also an American connection as his father had escaped the English Civil War by going to the American colonies, returning after the death of Charles I. As often (as noted by Herbert) the date of the bible on the general title page has been changed by hand to 1633. The fine title-page is signed Guilielmus Hole fecit. The signature is partly burnished out of the plate as noted by ESTC in copies with the date altered to 1633. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Ovid's Metamorphosis. Englished, Mythologiz'd, And Represented in Figures. [with] An Essay to the Translation of Virgil's Æneis. By G.S. [George Sandys]

      Oxford: Printed at Oxford by John Lichfield, 1632 - First illustrated edition thus. 4to. (18), 38, (6 pages erratically numbered, though text continuous), 51-124, 145-487, (1), 491-549, (1) pp. Bound in tan full calf by the Edinburgh bookbinders Henderson and Bissett, spine with raised bands, gilt lettered maroon label, gilt decorated to the other compartments, marbled endpapers featuring the book label of T. Leonard Ellis to the front pastedown and with his ownership inscription to the succeeding flyleaf, the later bookplate of Everett E. Whitney to the rear pastedown with the discreet ticket of the Glasgow booksellers Kerr and Richardson underneath, all edges gilt. Engraved title and 16 plates as usual, extra illustrated with 25 fine additional plates; a manuscript list describing them as by the "First Masters" including Picart, Pierino (Perino del Vaga), Raphael Urbino, Titian, Van Eyck and Guido Reni amongst others, the additional plates generally mounted on a thicker paper stock or card and sometimes cropped with the titles or artists' names affixed to the versos, some of the larger plates folding. The joints expertly repaired, a unique and magnificently embellished copy. Sandys originally published his translation of the first five books of the Metamorphoses in 1621, before leaving for Virginia; the Virginia Company being managed by his brother Edwin. His first full translation of the work appeared in 1626, of which this is the most celebrated edition featuring his revisions and also, for the first time, illustrations. Thomas Leonard Ellis (c. 1862-1897) was the son of Thomas Ellis, founder of the North British Ironworks of Coatbridge, North Lanarkshire. The book was almost certainly extra illustrated at the time of the binding, so it is likely that Ellis either commissioned the work himself or purchased it from the Glasgow booksellers Kerr and Richardson who had the work carried out. Alternatively, the ticket could suggest that the book was purchased from Ellis' estate on his early demise. The volume subsequently making it directly or indirectly across the Atlantic into the collection of Everett E. Whitney (1861-1937), a lumber merchant of Hingham, Massachusetts. Some of the supplied plates are more clearly identified or are identifiable than others. The engraving after Raphael, bound in at the tenth book, accords with that held by the British Museum (no. V,6.84), and dated by them as 1630-50. The image has been cropped, but Raphael's name and the other legend is mounted on the verso. The engraving after Perino del Vaga featuring Venus and Vulcan at the Forge, here bound in the thirteenth book, matches that held by the Biblioteca Casanatense in Rome. They describe it as a 16th century printing, being engraved by Giorgio Ghisi and published by Giovanni Giacomo De Rossi. The engraving after Titian of Vulcan and Ceres, bound in at the fifth book, can also be found in the British Museum catalogue, number 1917,1208.529. Described as an engraving by Pieter van Gunst dating from 1710-14, after a slightly earlier mezzotint from the same series by John Smith. Indeed a number of mezzotints are included in this copy, including "Perseus Delivers Andromeda from ye Sea Monster" engraved by John Simon after Guido Reni (BM catalogue 2010,7081.3441).

Translated into Latin from the original Italian. Overall a fine copy. Leo Africanus, born Al-Hassan ibn-Wazzani, was born a slave in Granada of African descent. Because of his outstanding literary ability (he had already written a draft of this book in Arabic when he was captured), the Medici Pope Leo X freed him, converted him to Christianity and became his patron. This book, a detailed account of Africa, its trade routes, geography, terrain and people was an exceptionally important source for information on the continent and is generally considered the first book written by a person of primarily African descent. Blockson 101 #1: "Any edition of Africanus works is rare and is the cornerstone of any collection of African history."

      In Milano : Per Gio. Batta. Bidelli, 1632. - 1632 1ed Lives of Twelve Visconti Duchy of MILAN Italy Como Giovio FINE BINDING EXQUISITE & RARE Le vite dei dodeci Visconti An absolutely stunning book by Como – an authoritative historical work of the life and works of the twelve Visconti who ruled Milan in the 15th and 16th-centuries. Paolo Giovio (1483 – 1552) was an Italian physician, historian, biographer, and prelate. Visconti is the family name of two important Italian noble dynasties of the Middle Ages. There are two distinct Visconti families: the first one (chronologically) in the Republic of Pisa in the mid twelfth century who achieved prominence first in Pisa, then in Sardinia where they became rulers of Gallura. The second rose to power in Milan, where they ruled from 1277 to 1447 and where several collateral branches still exist. Pope Gregory X, who reigned from 1271 to 1276, was a member of the House of Visconti. The renowned director Luchino Visconti is a scion of this latter family.

        De Iure [Jure] Belli ac Pacis Libri Tres, In Quibus Jus Naturae...

      1632. Early Edition of De Jure Belli ac Pacis Grotius, Hugo [1583-1645]. De Iure Belli ac Pacis Libri Tres. In Quibus Jus Naturae & Gentium: Item Juris Publici Praecipua Explicantur. Editio Tertia Emendatior, & Multis Locis Auctior. Amsterdam: Apud Iansonium, 1632. [xxiii], 548, [35] pp. Octavo (7" x 4-1/2"). Vellum derived from an old antiphonal leaf, lapped edges, somewhat calf lettering piece to spine, endpapers renewed, edges colored green. Light soiling, some rubbing to extremities, corners bumped and lightly worn, bookplate of Guido Kisch to front pastedown, a few partial cracks to text block. Moderate toning to text, somewhat heavier in places, faint dampstaining to margins in a few places, spark burns to a few leaves. Two faint early owner signatures to title page, interior otherwise clean. * Third edition. Of all his numerous works De Jure Belli ac Pacis will always be considered Grotius' magnum opus, the work upon which his reputation most solidly rests. "The distinction between religion and law or morality is not clearly made, but Grotius' principle of an immutable law, which God can no more alter than a mathematical axiom, was the first expression of the droit naturel, the natural law which exercised the great political theorists of the eighteenth century, and is the foundation of modern international law" (Carter and Muir). The first Gronov edition was published in 1663. This copy includes Mare Liberum, or Freedom of the Seas (1609), Grotius's influential treatise on maritime law and the right of free navigation. Kisch [1889-1985] was a prominent jurist and scholar who produced important works on humanism, Jewish law and history, German jurisprudence and the history of German-Jewish relations.

        De Bosporo Thracio libri III. RELIÉ À LA SUITE: Persia seu regni Persici status.

      - Leyde, Elzevir, 1632-1633; 2 ouvrages reliés en un volume in-24, 379 pp. (y compris le titre gravé) + 5 pp.n.ch. + 374 pp. (y compris le titre gravé) + 8 pp.n.ch. + 1 f. blanc, cartonnage à rabats de l'époque, pièce de titre de chagrin brique, tranches vertes (minimes défauts d'usage). Réunion de deux titres. I. Willems 366. Première édition elzévirienne. Pierre Gilles (1489-1555) partit pour l'Orient en 1544 et eut l'occasion de visiter aussi bien la Grèce que la Turquie, puis la Syrie, la Palestine, le Sinaï, l'Égypte et l'Afrique du Nord. Il s'intéressa plus particulièrement à la capitale ottomane et au détroit du Bosphore. Mais en 1550 il tomba entre les mains des pirates à Djerba, et ceux-ci le dépouillèrent des dossiers qu'il avait constitués au long de son périple en Orient. Libéré et revenu à Constantinople, il y passa près d'une année, avant de quitter définitivement le Bosphore en 1551 ou 1552, un fois reconstituée la matière de ses deux ouvrages sur Constantinople et le Bosphore. Les opuscules de Pierre Gilles (sous sa forme latine Petrus Gillius, ou Gyllius) ont été souvent cités et largement utilisés, car ils décrivent un état ancien de la ville de Constantinople et de ses alentours et ils signalent nombre de monuments ou de sites qui ont disparu depuis (Albert Failler, Revue des études byzantines, vol. 67, pp. 247-249). Beau titre gravé. II. Willems 623. Première édition elzévirienne. Géographe hollandais, Jean de Laet (1581-1649) consacra sa vie à la théologie et à la géographie ; il fut le directeur de la Compagnie hollandaise des Indes occidentales, et devint célèbre pour ses descriptions de pays. Beau titre gravé et 8 planches de costumes gravées sur bois, hors-texte. Bon exemplaire. 1632 [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Osservazioni nel viaggio di D. Francesco Belli.

      Giovanni Pietro Pinelli, 1632. In 4to, legatura in cartonato con nervi passanti di metà  Settecento, pp. (12), 189, (1), (2 bianche). Marca tipografica al titolo. Firma di appartenenza cassata sul titolo. Esemplare a tratti un po' brunito e fiorito, ma nel complesso fresco e genuino.RARA PRIMA EDIZIONE dedicata dall'autore a Girolamo Diedo (Venezia, 26 maggio, 1632)."Nel complesso dell'attività  del Belli le pagine più vive restano le Osservazioni sul viaggio in Olanda e in Francia (pubblicate a Venezia nel 1632), iniziato nel maggio del '26 da Rotta Sabadina nel Polesine al seguito di Giorgio Zorzi, ambasciatore in Olanda, e conclusosi sulle rive dell'Oceano. Il Belli accenna nel libro ai luoghi più pittoreschi del suo itinerario: Verona, Desenzano, Bergamo, Lecco, Como, con tocchi delicati descrive il lago di Lugano e ricorda singolari incontri con gustosa vivacità , come quello avvenuto prima di arrivare a Bellinzona ("dove non si conoscono ladri, perché le merci stanno dì e notte sopra le pubbliche strade") con due guardie disarmate e un placidissimo malandrino avviato alla galera. La narrazione del Belli, benché quasi sempre contenuta nei limiti della scarna relazione, è piena di osservazioni su interessanti costumi locali, talvolta, con spirito di curioso osservatore, ci svela la sua spiccata sensibilità  barocca, quando, ad esempio, si sofferma sulla fattura "bizzarra" delle case degli Svizzeri (p. 16). In genere, però, le descrizioni del paesaggio sono sommarie e tutto viene ridotto al carattere stereotipo dell' "assai vago", troppo spesso del "gentile" o "delicato", del "grazioso" o dell' "ameno". Più viva invece è la descrizione della perigliosa traversata del San Gottardo innevato (p. 76), ma subito dopo tornano le scarne impressioni sulla visita alle varie città  svizzere, tedesche e olandesi e sul ritorno in Italia attraverso il Moncenisio. Da buon letterato il Belli, appena può, non manca di far sfoggio della propria erudizione classica con citazioni e rimandi a Cesare, Plinio o Tacito. Il Belli alterna la sua relazione con un buon numero di sonetti, ventisei per l'esattezza, condotti con una ingegnosità  tipicamente barocca, e inframmezzati al racconto là  dove le "ricreazioni di vista e d'animo" risvegliano "il talento poetico". Non manca neppure di rompere la monotonia del suo diario riferendo, su "quistioni" piuttosto oziose ("ciò che debba nelle cose visibili l'amante più gradir nell'amata", "se lo stato sia ereditario, o per elezione", "se la donna nello amante deggia amar più l'armi o le lettere", oppure "se il riso nasca da allegrezza o da meraviglia"), proposte quotidianamente alla discussione. Le cose più pregevoli sono da ravvisarsi in certe descrizioni (quasi graziose stampe alla maniera di altre più note delle Lettere del Testi), soprattutto sulle vesti e sul comportamento delle donne straniere, o in certe sottolineature di un tema così tipicamente barocco come quello degli orologi, quando ne incontra sui campanili delle città  tedesche lungo il Reno, o delle città  olandesi" (cfr. Dizionario Biografico degli Italiani, VII, 1970, G.L. Beccaria).Nato nel 1577 ad Arzignano nel Vicentino da nobile famiglia, Francesco Belli trascorse buona parte della sua vita in viaggi. Benché sia incerto se sia veramente andato anche in Oriente, in quanto l'attribuzione al Belli delle Osservazioni nel viaggio in Oriente (Venezia 1622), tentata dall'Amat di San Filippo, rimane dubbia, è invece sicuro che egli percorse gran parte dell'Europa, visitando direttamente la Svizzera, la Germania, l'Olanda e la Francia. Tornato in patria, abbracciò in età  avanzata lo stato ecclesiastico. Morì a Vicenza nel 1644.Membro dell'Accademia Olimpica di Vicenza, dell'Accademia degli Occulti di Brescia e di quella degli Incogniti di Venezia, il Belli scrisse numerosi versi, una tragedia, un romanzo, alcune novelle e vari discorsi d'occasione, per lo più composti nell'ambito dell'Accademia degli Incogniti, di cui fu uno dei membri più noti ed attivi, tanto da esserne nominato segretario.Catalogo unico, ITICCUTO0E11768, P.

        The Purple Island or the Isle of Man. Cambridge: Printers to the Universitie, 1633 [bound with:] Locustae. Cambridge: T. & J. Bucke, 1627. [and:] FLETCHER, Giles Christs victorie

      Cambridge: F. Green, 1632. First editions. [14], 181, [5], 130, [2], [16], 84, [8], 100 pp. 4to. Contemporary calf, spine gilt, red morocco label to spine, headcap repaired. First editions. [14], 181, [5], 130, [2], [16], 84, [8], 100 pp. 4to. A handsome copy of Fletcher's "most substantial acheivement" bound with Locustae and Christ victorie, the last being work of his younger brother Giles. Of The Purple Island, Osler remarks that it is an "elaborate allegorical description of the human body, with anatomical notes…" The "Piscatory Eclogues" have a separate title and pagination, and "the inner meaning of the poem, is rather amorous than piscatorial", according to Westwood & Satchell. "Fletcher is certainly an earnest poet-a worthy successor of the 'sage and serious' Spenser-but his wittiness, his humour, and his obvious delight in unfolding a traditional story should not be overlooked. The Purple Island, written in seven-line stanzas, possesses an easy fluency and a strong narrative movement, and the extensive marginal notes clarify the often obscure though always inventive allegory" (ODNB). STC 11082, 11081 & 11058. Hayward 67; Pforzheimer 376; Bibliotheca Osleriana 4810; Westwood & Satchell, p. 95. Provenance: Robert S. Pirie (bookplate)
