LEO AFRICANUS.
Lugd. Batav., Elzevir, 1632. First Elzevir printing, only volume 2, p.387 - p.800, originally published in 1550. 24mo. 800pp. (two volumes bound in one, paginated consecutively). Contemporary full brown calf, spine in 5 compartments, gilt title and decorations. Top of spine and frontcover on the hingings a bit worn.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."

JONSTON, John
Apud Guilielmum Blaeu, Amsterdam, 1632. FIRST EDITION. 12mo [xii] 501 [iii]. Roman and Italic letter, woodcut initials and tail-pieces, t.p. with printer’s device of an orrery. Light age browning, otherwise a good clean copy with C17 annotations, in contemporary English calf, covers triple-ruled in blind, spine remounted, a.e.r. FIRST EDITION of Jonston’s most popular work on "admiranda" or wonders of nature organised into ten categories (heaven, earth, and topics relating to meteors, ‘fossils’ or minerals, plants, birds, quadrupeds, insects and ‘bloodless’ animals, fish, and humans). The work draws heavily from classical sources such as Aristotle, Pliny, and Seneca, but also from the more recent work of Aldrovandi, and in the section on plants includes descriptions of the flora and fauna of the New World, as well as tobacco. Each section is headed by a useful index to its contents, and the work concludes with a poem in praise of Jonston by the Bohemian poet Venceslaus Clemens. John Jonston (1603 - 1675) emigrated from Poland to Scotland in 1622 and studied natural history at St. Andrew’s for four years. He received the degree of Doctor of Physic from both Leyden and Cambridge. Despite the compact size of Thaumaturgia, his earliest work, its wide range of material prefigures his later, large-scale works on Fish, Insects, Birds, and Trees, made possible by his extensive travel through Europe and access to its libraries, as well as firsthand observation. Venceslaus Clemens (1589 - 1640?), Protestant and prolific Neo-Latin poet, was forced to leave his native Bohemia after the … [Click Below for Full Description]

Basel: Ludwig König 1632. Folio. (465) leaves. Contp. full vellum with dec. on boards. Upper headband marked of use, left joint cracked; browning and some pages weakly stained. Old name on titlep. (Skat Rördam. 1855). * "Das Werk stellt sich, wie auch aus der Einleitung hervorgeht, als eine verbesserte Auflage der Basler Ausgabe von Isac Natans Bibelkonkordanz vom Jahre 1581 dar. Daneben benutzte Buxtorf wohl auch die Konkordanz des Marius de Calasius, Rom 1621. Die wesentlichen Unterschiede gegenüber jener Vorlage bestehen in der Anordnung nach des Formen innerhalb eines Stammes und in der lateinischen Übersetzungen sowohl jeder Form als auch der einleitenden Erklärung des Stammes." (Prijs, Die Basler hebräischen Drucke, 235). Johs. Buxtorff, der ältere, (1564-1629) war ohne Frage der grösste Kenner des rabbinischen Schriftthums unter den Protestanten. Sein Sohn Johs. Buxtorff (1599-1664) vollendete seines Vaters Werk "Concordantiae ..." ADB III, 668. Jöcher I, 1223. Das lateinisches Titelblatt ist mit einen ornamentalen Einfassung, gezeichnet "SW" (Nagler V,443 "Unbekannter Formschneider"). Both Boxtorf and his son of the same name were professor of Hebrew at Basel University, many of their books were published by Johs.

[Ambon massacre] [Skinner, John].
The portrait of a British merchant being tortured; the Ambon Massacre and the beginnings of the annexation of Dutch New Amsterdam. 1632. London. Purslowe and Nathaniell Newberry. In 8vo (182 mm x 131 mm). frontispiece + 5 ff. + 38 + 1 ff. + 20 + 1 ff. + 34. Nineteenth century mottled calf by Riviere & Son, rebacked with most of original spine retained, with original lettering pieces on spine. Very good copy internally. An important work, relates the episode whereby the Dutch Governor of Amboyna had a number of English merchants tortured under interrogation regarding a suspected conspiracy to overthrow the fortress. The Portuguese first discovered Amboyna in 1510, although it was not until 1521 that a settlement was founded. In 1600 the Dutch, aided by the natives and encouraged by an apparently ruthless Portuguese treatment towards the natives, secured the island. In 1615 a British settlement was also founded on the other side of the island, where it enjoyed a short life until 1623, when the massacre occurred. Several of the Englishmen did not survive. This work had influence on the start of the Second Anglo-Dutch War and the annexation of Dutch New Amsterdam, present-day New York, was justified with reference to this event. The Relation is comprised of four parts, each with a separate title page. Illustrated with a crude image of a man ?"presumably an English merchant- being tortured by 6 men and two child, burning his feet and armpits with candles, and another one opening him, whilst he is crucified.

London: Printed by Tho. Cotes, for Robert Allot, And Are To Be Sold At His Shop, , 1632.. London: Printed by Tho. Cotes, for Robert Allot, And Are To Be Sold At His Shop, 1632. Second Folio Edition. Bound in full leather, gilt titles and tooling to the spine, red morocco spine label, raised bands. This copy has a presentation book-plate for the Century Association Library, New York City, donated by "Wm. M. Allen." For reference to Allen's donation see the Association's 1872 Yearbook, "The Library and Art collections have received some important accessions during the year.... and it has been enriched in particular by the valuable collection presented by Mr. William M. Allen." There is a short entry for a Shakespeare Second Folio in their 1879 Catalogue, likely to be this copy. It is estimated that no more than 1000 copies of the Second Folio were printed, and it is believed less than 200 copies are still in existence today. In facsimile is Tempest p. 1/2 , 17/18, 19/ "Two Gentlemen from Verona " p. 20; "Richard III" 173/4; final page of Macbeth and first page of Hamlet 171/2; "Othello" p. 351/2 & 359/; "Anthony and Cleopatra" p. 360 to 364, 3; Cymbeline. The Shakespeare Folios "have an aura of book magic about them. For a bibliophile it is a volume devoutly to be wished for and rarely attained; to a library it is a crowning jewel of a collection… Shakespeare, indeed, is a name to conjure with. No lengthy explanations are needed; he is simply the most distinguished author in the English language" (Legacies of Genius, 36).

The somewhat naîve colour indicates the borders of the areas. The city of Mantua/ Mantova clearly shown within the lake, below the title cartouche Good impression; original old colour; dampstain to blank margins left & right. Born in Padua 1555, Magini studied astronomy from an early age. He was appointed Lecturer in Astronomy at the University by the Senate of Bolgna in 1588; [ he received the chair in preference to Gallileo]. As a cartographer, Magini's life's work was the preparation of "Italia "or the "Atlante geografico d'Italia ".This was intended to include maps of every Italian region with exact nomenclature and historical note and it was eventually printed posthumously by his son Fabio in 1620. He was the first Italian to produce an Atlas of his native country. A major project, the production (begun in 1594) proved expensive and Magini assumed various additional posts in order to fund it, including becoming tutor in mathematics to the sons of Vincenzo Gonzaga, Duke of Mantua, a major patron of the arts and sciences. Magini dedicated the atlas to The Duke of Mantua, who had assisted him with this project helping him obtain cartographical material from the various sovereigns ruling the different Italian states at that time.

Small 4to, 190 x 140 mm, 7½ x 5½ inches, engraved pictorial title page, dated title page to second part but register and pagination continuous, pages: (4), 299, bound in contemporary full vellum, hand lettered to spine. Most copies like ours just have the engraved title without the letterpress title, a few have just a letterpress title. Some discolouration to vellum, some light rust staining to lower cover, head of spine just slightly worn, ties lacking, short closed tear to fore-edge of front endpaper and title page, neatly repaired with no loss, signature on front endpaper, occasional small pale stain, otherwise contents clean and bright. Binding tight and firm. A very good copy of a scarce book. The first part is a translation of "Aelius Sejanus, histoire romaine" by Pierre Matthieu. It is translated into English as a satire on the fall of George Villiers, Duke of Buckingham. The second part is a translation of "Histoire des prosperitez malheureuses d'une femme cathenoise, grande seneschalle de Naples" also by Matthieu, based on a story from "De casibus illustrium virorum" by Giovanni Boccaccio. Both works are supposed to have been written by Matthieu originally to represent the rise and fall of Concino Concini and his wife, Leonora Galigai. Concino Concini, (d. 1617), was a Florentine adventurer, favourite of Marie de' Medici, queen of France, who exerted great influence after the assassination of Marie's husband, Henry IV in 1610, and … [Click Below for Full Description]

SHAKESPEARE, William
[London: printed by Tho. Cotes, for Robert Allot,, 1632]. Folio (325 × 221 mm), 26 leaves, pp. [251]–302 (pp. 251-268 mis-paginated 152-168). Modern calf-backed marbled boards, titles gilt direct to spine, speckled edges. Some spots and stains, including some small reddish-brown stains to pp. 156-7, giving the not inappropriate impression that someone has bled over the scene attending the murder of Duncan, gentle crinkling to the leaves, but all the leaves notably uncreased and untorn; very good condition indeed. Two of Shakespeare's universally acknowledged masterpieces, extracted from a copy of the second Shakespeare folio, where they are fifth and sixth among the tragedies (the last page of Macbeth and the first page of Hamlet constituting the recto and verso of a single leaf, thus practically necessitating their extraction as a pair). While there were two texts of Hamlet printed in quarto before 1623, the folio text of Hamlet is different from either. Since it was the players who brought copies of Shakespeare's plays to the publishers of the First Folio, it has been argued that the text of any play in a folio edition would be closest to that presented on stage at the Globe. Many modern critics, such as G. R. Hubbard, following Stanley Wells and Gary Taylor, regard the folio text of Hamlet as Shakespeare's personal revision of the best quarto text. Macbeth, another of Shakespeare's most popular plays, was never published during his lifetime, so it is not surprising that the only text which we have of this play - first published in 1623 - is problemat … [Click Below for Full Description]

The "Atlas Minor" of Gerhard Mercator appears in various formats, the first published by Jodicus Hondius in 1607 with plates he most likely engraved himself. Thereafter there appeared a number of editions. In 1628 Johannes Janssonius published a new series of editions, the plates engraved by Petrus Kaerius and Abraham Goos. Both of these were small format atlases in the tradition of that published by Langenes. In 1630 Johannes Cloppenburg published a French edition in a somewhat larger size, followed by this Latin edition in 1632. The plates were in the main engraved by Petrus Kaerius. Cloppenburg published the Altas at his own expense "sumptibus"as the imprint states. There was one more edition in 1636 with French text. Due to thier larger size the maps from the Cloppenberg editions have more information, than those of Hondius and Janssonius, and are considered by some sholars as a true reduction of the maps of Mercator, as they appear in the folio Atlas.

Europe: Bologna. Sebastiano Bonomi for the author. 1632. Copper engraved map of the territory of Verona from Magini's "Italia, data in luce da Fabio suo figliuolo. "Original old outline colour; verso blank with old ink map number to upper corner. The somewhat naîve colour indicates the borders of the areas; the map shows Province of Verona with Lake Garda to the West in the upper part of the map. 2 decorative cartouches. Good impression; original old colour; fingermarks to blank margins. Born in Padua 1555, Magini studied astronomy from an early age. He was appointed Lecturer in Astronomy at the University by the Senate of Bolgna in 1588; [ he received the chair in preference to Gallileo]. As a cartographer, Magini's life's work was the preparation of "Italia "or the "Atlante geografico d'Italia ".This was intended to include maps of every Italian region with exact nomenclature and historical note and it was eventually printed posthumously by his son Fabio in 1620. He was the first Italian to produce an Atlas of his native country. A major project, the production (begun in 1594) proved expensive and Magini assumed various additional posts in order to fund it, including becoming tutor in mathematics to the sons of Vincenzo Gonzaga, Duke of Mantua, a major patron of the arts and sciences. Magini dedicated the atlas to The Duke of Mantua, who had assisted him with this project helping him obtain cartographical material from the various sovereigns ruling the different Italian states at that time. The governments of Messina and Genoa also assisted Magini financi … [Click Below for Full Description]
