        Kitab ‘Aja’ib al-Maqdur fi Akhbar Timur.) Ahmedis Drabsiadae Vitae et Rerum Gestarum Timuri, qui vulgo Tamerlanes Dicitur, Historia.

      Lugduni Batavorum, Leiden 1636 - 448 pages of Arabic text + 4 pages (foreword in Latin), contemporary full vellum, slightly soiled cover, occasional mild foxing in the text. Two small closed marginal tears not affecting the text. Lacking half title. Title in Latin and Arabic printed in red and black with nice woodcut border by C. van Sichem. Editor’s foreword with border printed in blue, text within borders. Extremely rare. First Arabic edition (not translation) of this historical work by Ahmad Ibn Arabsah (1392-1450), describing the conquests of Timur (Tamerlane) in the 14th century and the conditions under his successors. The Syrian author (died in Damascus 854/1450), who was captured with his mother and brother by Timur’s forces in Damascus in 803/1400, was deported to Samarqand, where he studied theology and philology and gained a thorough knowledge of Turkish and Persian (he translated Arabic books into Persian at the court of Sultan Muhammad Othman). He completed this work in 841/1437-8 when he returned to Damascus. It contains first hand observations of unparalleled frankness, showing Timur as an oppressive tyrant - a depiction which contrasted vividly with European views of his character prior to this work. In the 16th century, Timur was made famous in the English-speaking world through the English playwright Christopher Marlowe’s play "Tamburlaine" (1590). Like other Renaissance writers and scholars, Marlowe’s information on Timur derived indirectly from a letter by the Italian humanist, Jacopo Poggio, published in his Oratoris et Philosophi Opera in Basel in 1538. Poggio’s admiration for Timur derived from and supported the notion that not only classical figures, such as Alexander, but also contemporary leaders were capable of great achievement and conquest. The origin of this work is based on an Arabic manuscript which was completed in 1437-1438 and is still preserved at Leiden University library, Holland, and contains many notes in Golius’s hand. The work was edited and prefaced by Jacob Golius who used this text extensively for his lectures and intended to publish a supplementary volume with a translation and commentary, but the notes found among his papers at his death thirty years later were not ready to be published. "An interesting feature of the book is the use of blue ink for the printing of the word 'Tamerlanis' (between two red lines) on the half-title, as well as for one typographical ornament on leaf 3 recto" (Smitskamp). A French translation by Pierre Vattier appeared in 1658, after he had also translated Erpenius’s edition of the Historia Saracenica.

        Thesaurus Arabico-Syro-Latinus.

      Typis Sac. Congregationis de Propaganda Fide, Rome 1636 - [6], 447 pp, [1], [43], [1], 2 blank leaves, 70 [i.e. 65] Index Alphabeticus; handsomely printed in Roman, Syriac and Arabic fonts throughout. Fitted in Slipcase. An Arabic-Syriac-Latin word list arranged by subject, based on the Arabic-Syriac vocabulary compiled in the 11th century by Elias bar Shinaya, metropolitan of Nisibis (see Haywood, p.122). Obicini, (or Obizzino) 1585– 1632, was head of the Franciscan convent in Aleppo between 1613 and 1619. On his return to Rome he successfully proposed that a college be established in the convent of St Peter in Montorio for missionaries preparing to evangelise in the East to learn Arabic and he was appointeteacher of Arabic by the Propaganda Fide. Obicini was also responsible for the supervision of the Propaganda Fide’s type. His Thesaurus Arabico-Syro-Latinus was prepared for publication after his death by Dominico Germano de Silesia. It was a rather carelespiece of printing, with some words printed upside down and the errata list occupying 17 pages. ‘The Syriac types are the 20pt Maronite types, and the Arabic Granjon’s arabe du Kitab al-Bustan. In the headings the Arabic Bible types are used’ (Smitskamp). The Propaganda Fide press printed alphabets of most of the languages spoken by those whom the catholic church saw as potential converts. Alphabets soon led to missals, grammars and dictionaries. An early book by the Sacrae Congregationis de Propaganda Fide (OCLC lists only 6 earlier ones). OCLC lists 5 copies but only 3 in the U.S. (Harvard, N.Y.P.L., and St. Charles Borromeo Seminary in Overbrook, Pennsylvania). Ebert 14920. Not in the Blackmer sale and not in the Atabey sale.

        Fionia

      Amsterdam: Jodocus Hondius, 1636. unbound. very good. Map. Uncolored engraving. Image measures 14" x 15.75" Map of the Danish island of Fyn, as well as Langeland and Ærø. English text on back describes the area. From the "Gerardi Mercatoris Atlas sive Cosmographicae" (Mercator-Hondius Atlas). Plate was originally made by Mercator and later added to by Hondius. Some aging around margins and minor chipping to left edge and corners. Mercator (1512-1594) was an accomplished mathematician, cartographer, globe maker and engraver but is best known for the Mercator Projection. Incorporating the newly accepted fact that the world is round, Mercator was able to render longitude lines consistently straight on a chart. Although this requires some distortion, it was of great use for navigators, and is historically important, as it is still the most commonly used projection today.

        Discours over de ghelegentheyt vande nieuwe cruyssers, daer het wel-varen, vande zee-vaert, ende alle inghesetenen van het lant, op't hooghste aen gelegen is.[Middelburg?], 1645. 4to. 19th-century wrappers.

      - Den Zeusen Beesem 1062; Knuttel 5221. Two dialogues discussing Dutch warships capturing Dunkirk privateers and merchant ships. Dunkirkers, serving the Spanish Navy, were a major threat to Dutch trade and shipping, taking hundreds of ships during the Dutch revolt. The present pamphlet discusses several commanders of warships, including the Zeeland captains Jacob Pense, Gerrit Verhagen, Jan Evertsen de Jonge and Jacob Verhelle, who captured no fewer than 30 Dunkirk ships in just one year. Jan Evertsen de Jonge was the son of the famous admiral Jan Evertsen, who had captured the infamous Duinkerk privateer Jacques Colaert in 1636 and later fought several battles in the first and second Anglo-Dutch war. The pamphlet concludes with a list of captured ships mentioned in the text. It seems to have been written to advocate the fitting out of more warships to protect Dutch (or more particularly Zeeland) trade.Spine damaged, otherwise in very good condition.

Ce violent réquisitoire contre les Français est présenté sous la forme d'un traité historique qui disserte sur les mœurs françaises, les relations de l'Espagne et de la France depuis le 14e siècle, ainsi que sur la supposée alliance des Français avec les Turcs pendant le siècle d'or. C'est un livre obscur à plusieurs égards. D'une part, le lieu d'impression et le nom de l'imprimeur ne sont répertoriés nulle part et paraissent avoir été inventés. D'autre part, certaines sources attribuent l'ouvrage au médecin hollandais Guillaume Van Den Bossche, mais cette hypothèse semble être erronée et le nom de Vandevoy indiqué au titre paraît n'être qu'une fantaisie. L'ouvrage contient deux curieuses gravures à l'eau forte de Francisco Navarro, graveur espagnol au sujet duquel Bénézit indique qu'on connaît de lui "des planches d'armoiries parues en 1632 à Madrid et le titre pour un ouvrage militaire publié en 1642. Il a également gravé des titres pour divers ouvrages d'architecture et des portraits d'Horace, Perse et Juvénal". Juan de Quiñones a laissé plusieurs ouvrages remarquables, tous écrits en espagnol, parmi lesquels un traité sur les sauterelles (1620), un discours contre les gitans (1631), une relation des éruptions du Vésuve (1632) et un curieux traité de minéralogie sur le charbon (1634). Le présent volume est une véritable rareté. Nous n'avons pu en localiser qu'un seul exemplaire dans les collections américaines (à l'Hispanic Society of America de New York, cf. N.U.C.) et seulement deux exemplaires dans les bibliothèques publiques espagnoles (Biblioteca Nacional et Biblioteca de Oviedo). Très bon exemplaire dans son vélin d'origine. Palau, 245389.

Boodt a tenté la premier de classer les minéraux. Il en connaît près de 600 et décrit leurs propriétés, leur valeur et leur usage médical. Illustré par 43 bois gravés dans le texte et 2 tableaux dépliants. Les gravures montrent des pierres, des cristaux, des machines pour tailler et polir les pierres précieuses et même des fossiles. Provenance : signature de l'époque sur la page de titre : "Ex catalogo librorum Eberbardi (?)". Quelques passages soulignés par la même plume. Coins usés, quelques feuillets légèrement brunis.

Illustrated by 43 woodcuts in text. "In his Gemmarum et Lapidum Historia, Boodt made the first attempt at a systematic description of minerals, dividing the minerals into great and small, rare and common, hard and soft, combustible and incombustible, transparent and opaque. He uses a scale of hardness expressed in three degrees and notes the crystalline forms of some minerals (triangular, quadratic, and hexangular). Boodt criticizes some of the views of Aristotle, Pliny, Paracelsus, and others. He also mentions atoms. He enumerates about 600 minerals that he knows from personal observation, and describes their properties, values, imitations, and medical applications. There are also tables of values of diamonds according to their size and a short description of the polishing of precious stones. Boodt cites nineteen authors and, besides the minerals known to him, gives a list of 233 minerals whose names he knows from Pliny and Bartholomeus Anglicus, among others." D.S.B. 2, 293. Contemporary vellum. In-8. [177 x 108 mm] Collation : (8), 576, (22) pp., 2 tabl. dépl. hors-texte. Vélin à rabats. (Reliure de l'époque.).

Otherwise a fine and unstained copy. ----VD17 39:113722S; Wellcome I, 5928. - FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE (without errata), of exceptional rarity (only one copy recorded at auction in the past 50 years). The physician and scholar Daniel Sennert (1572-1637) united various atomistic theories in the early 17th century and advocated the spread of atomism. Jungius further developed the ideas he published. In his Hypomnemata physicae (Notes on Physics), Sennert summarized his theories, emphasizing the imperceptibility of the 'minima', but referring to observations that suggest their existence. When water evaporates, its particles do not disintegrate, but become undetectably small. His efforts to unite corpuscular theories with the Aristotelian theory of matter brought him recognition in the course of his life, but was later criticized. The assumption that the original atoms are linked to hardly divisible prima mixta influenced the teachings of Robert Boyle (1627-91) and Joachim Jungius (1587-1657) "(see NDB XXIV, 262 f.). Some issues include two leaves of errata which are not present in our copy (as absent from the Wellcome and VD17 copies). Very Good.

        The Herball, or Generall Historie of Plantes.

      London: Adam Islip, Joice Norton, and Richard Whitakers, 1636. Thick folio, with more than 2500 woodcut illustrations of plants, as well as numerous other woodcut decorations; contemporary sprinkled calf, spine ornately gilt in wide compartments, red morocco label; armorial bookplate of "Walford" and 17th-century signature of Elizabeth Taylor of Wimbish Hall. A splendid copy of one of the most famous English herbals, here in the second printing of the best edition, Johnson's 'very much enlarged and amended' version which first appeared in 1633. This massive herbal made the barber-surgeon and horticulturist Gerard (1545-1612) famous when it was first published in 1597, and it remained highly esteemed for more than 200 years. Gerard's work was based on his experience in his own substantial gardens and as superintendent of several others in and around London, including various properties owned by William Cecil, first Baron Burghley, whose gardens were famous for their variety of plants and trees. Despite claims that his work was derivative, 'Gerard contributed greatly towards the advancement of the knowledge of plants in England, and in his Herball described and illustrated several hundreds of... native plants, including about 182 which were additional to those recorded in earlier works... ' (Henrey). In 1632 the successors of Gerard's first publisher commissioned Thomas Johnson (d. 1644), the well-known apothecary and botanist, to prepare a second edition. He did this so well and added so much (a valuable comprehensive historical introduction as well as half again as many woodcuts) that Johnson's version is generally recognised as the "best edition". Johnson 'corrected many of Gerard's more gullible errors, and improved the accuracy of the illustrations by using Plantin's woodcuts... ' (Hunt). Arber says that 'the Herball, thus transformed, reached a far higher level than Gerard's own edition'. In this revised form, the book was still being used in botany classes as late as the end of the 18th century. The thousands of charming woodcuts are both large and detailed, and represent an incredible body of work. The engraved title page mounted, with tiny losses at corners and inner margin, dedication leaf slightly soiled and stained, a few minor spots and stains; binding neatly repaired at joints and extremities; in overall excellent condition.

This edition was revised and enlarged by Adrian Toll, professor of medicine at Leyden. Many of the woodcuts were improved, and several of them appeared here for the first time. The extensive index of twenty pages allowed ready access to Boodt's magnificent treatise. Very Good.

Gerardus Mercator (born 5 March 1512 in Rupelmonde, County of Flanders (in modern Belgium), died 2 December 1594 in Duisburg, United Duchies of Jülich-Cleves-Berg, (modern-day Germany)) was a cartographer, philosopher and mathematician. He is best known for his work in cartography, in particular the world map of 1569 based on a new projection which represented sailing courses of constant bearing as straight lines. He was the first to use the term "atlas" for a collection of maps. (Wikipedia)

        Comitatus Lageniae - The Countie of Leinster.

      Janssonius,, 1636. Amsterdam, Janssonius, 1636. Original, hand-coloured engraving. The engraving (the plate) itself 50 cm x 38.5 cm. Mounted: c. 69 cm x 58 cm Original Map with beautifully coloured cartouche and border-colours. Differing Mileage-scale shown in "Milliaria Hibernica" and "Milliaria Anglica" . Johannes Janssonius (1588, Arnhem ? buried July 11, 1664, Amsterdam) (born Jan Janszoon, in English often incorrect Jan Jansson) was a Dutch cartographer and publisher who lived and worked in Amsterdam in the 17th century.nnJanssonius was born in Arnhem, the son of Jan Janszoon the Elder, a publisher and bookseller. In 1612 he married Elisabeth de Hondt, the daughter of Jodocus Hondius. He produced his first maps in 1616 of France and Italy. In 1623 Janssonius owned a bookstore in Frankfurt am Main, later also in Danzig, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Berlin, Königsberg, Geneva and Lyon. Elisabeth Hondius died in 1627 and he remarried one Elisabeth Carlier in 1629. In the 1630s he formed a partnership with his brother in law Henricus Hondius, and together they published atlases as Mercator/Hondius/Janssonius. Under the leadership of Janssonius the Hondius Atlas was steadily enlarged. Renamed Atlas Novus, it had three volumes in 1638, one fully dedicated to Italy. 1646 a fourth volume came out with "English County Maps", a year after a similar issue by Willem Blaeu. Janssonius' maps are similar to those of Blaeu, and he is often accused of copying from his rival, but many of his maps predate those of Blaeu and/or covered different regions. By 1660, at which point the atlas bore the appropriate name "Atlas Major", there were 11 volumes, containing the work of about a hundred credited authors and engravers. It included a description of "most of the cities of the world" (Townatlas), of the waterworld (Atlas Maritimus in 33 maps), and of the Ancient World (60 maps). The eleventh volume was the Atlas of the Heavens by Andreas Cellarius. Editions were printed in Dutch, Latin, French, and a few times in German. After Janssonius's death, the publishing company was continued by his son-in law, Johannes van Waesbergen. The London bookseller Moses Pitt attempted publication of the Atlas Major in English, but ran out of resources after the fourth volume in 1683. (Wikipedia)

(13 x 7,7 cm, bzw. 12,4 x 6,9 cm; Buchblock: 1,8 cm) 12°. Bérard S. 70 ("Cette édition a eté revue par Daniel Heinsius, qui l'a dédiée à Nicolas Heinsius son fils; elle est précédée de la vie de Virgile par Tib. Cl. Donat. Les Elzévirs l'ont réimprimée sous la même date; mail il est aisé de reconnaître l'édition originale à un fragment de lettre à Auguste qui précède les Bucoliques, et à une dédicace qui est en tête de l'Énéide, lesquels y sont imprimés en rouge, tandis qu'ils sont en noir dans la réimpression. Ce volume est un des plus rares et des mieux imprimés de la collection des Elzévirs, mais il est peu correct."). Pieters 188 auf S. 122 ("Il y a deux réimpressions sous la même date, qui se reconaissent au fragment de l'Épitre à Auguste, à la dernière page des liminaires, et à la dédicace de l'Enéide à la page 92, qui sont en majuscules noires, tandis qu'elles sont en majuscules rouges dans l'édition originale. Les deux réimpressions se distinguent par un errata à la page 411, après les Animadversiones, qui se trouve dans l'une et n'est pas dans l'autre. L'édition originale est un des plus rares et des plus beaux livres que les presses Elseviriennes ayent produits; mais, pour la concretion, elle est peu estimée, non par la faute d'Heinsius le père; mais par celle des imprimeurs. A ce sujet Nic. Heinsius fils, écrit à Coccius en février 1665: "J'avais cru que l'édition qu'a donné mon père était la meilleure, mais les imprimeurs s'y sont si fort éloignés du texte que mon père leur avait donné, contre la foy des Mss. et même des bonnes éditions, que je crois que c'est la plus mauvaise de toutes, J'en prépare donc une qui sera plus correcte, pourvu que les imprimeurs soyent fidèles."). Brunet (Millot) S. 31 f. ("Dans l'une de ces deux dernières éditions, les fragments de la lettre de Virgile à Auguste, précédant la page 1re, et la dédicace, p. 92, sont en lettres rouges, tandis qu'ils restent noirs dans l'autre. Celle qui possède les lettres rouges, et qui passe pour la 1re, est d'une typographie de la plus grande richesse; et, malgré quelques incorrections, les beaux exemplaires se maintiennent à des prix élevés. . La bibliographie, par instinct plus que par méthode, classe comme la 1re l'édition aux lettres rouges. Nous maintenons son classement à bon droit, et voici nos raisons. Cette édition possède à la dédicace et à la p. 1 l'un des buffles moyens, celui qui est le plus vrai. Ce fleuron est un des ornements primitifs, antérieurs à 1636. Dans l'édition aux lettres noires, c'est un grand buffle qui tient la place du moyen à la dédicace. En tête de la Vie de Virgile, et à la p. 1, c'est la sirène blanche, dite à tête de femme. Le grand buffle est postérieur à cette sirène, qui ne paraît pour la première fois que sur le Sénèque, 2e vol., 1639. Et comme la sirène du Virgile se montre trèspâteuse, on doit en conclure qu'elle a été employée à plusieurs autres éditions avant celle du Virgile. D'ailleurs, la spéculation commandait un temps de repos entre les deux éditions, et un intervalle de dix années eût été insuffisant. Si cette 2e édition a contre elle d'être sur papier moins beau que la première, on peut dire du moins qu'elle est d'une très-belle typographie, et qu'elle a en sa faveur d'être d'une meilleure correction. On la rencontre rarement dans les ventes, parce qu'elle est d'une excessive rareté. Quand elle a 4 pouces 10 lignes et une bonne reliure, nous l'estimons de 20 à 30 fr.").

        A Collection of Some Principal Rules and Maximes of the Common Lawes of England, With Their Latitude and Extent: Explicated for the more facile Introduction of such as are studiously addicted to that nobel Profession.

      SECOND EDITION. 1 vol, small 8vo, (ix)94pp, 7-1/8" x 5-1/2", early paper wrappers. Housed in a green morocco slipcase.Second edition of one of the earliest, if not the first, of maxims of the English Law (Rees 1: 20). CBEL 1: 870. We have here but twenty-five out of three hundred Rules which [Bacon] had collected: 'I thought good, before I brought them all into form, to publish some few, that by the taste of other men's opinion...I might receive either approbation in my own course, or better advice for the altering of others which remain. ' The excellence of that which we possess makes us grieve that we have so small a proportion of that which the author designed: 'Though some great masters of the Law did outgo him in bulk...yet in the science of the grounds, and mysteries of the Law, he was exceeded by none'--Preface to Blackstone's Anal. (Allibone, 90). None of Bacon's legal works were published before his death in 1626; the first edition of this work (often bound with "The Use of Law", probably not by Bacon) appeared in 1630. A very good copy of this cornerstone of English Law.

When reading Gerard we are wandering in the peace of an Elizabethan garden, with a companion who has => a story for every flower and is full of wise philosophies" (Woodward, p. viii). And indeed, Gerard's herbal is written in "glorious Elizabethan prose, [with] the folk-lore steeping its pages'" (Woodward, p. vii), these factors going a long way towards making it one of the best-known and -loved of the early English herbals. The "herbs" surveyed include plants aquatic and terrestrial, New World and Old, embracing shrubs, plants, and trees, each with a description of its structure and appearance, where it is found (and how it got there), when it is sown and reaped or flowers, its name or names (often with engrossingly exotic etymologies), its "temperature," and its "vertues" or uses (often curious).    The story is famous: John Norton, Queen's printer, wished to bring out an English language version of Dodoen's Pemptades of 1583 and hired a certain "Dr. Priest" to do so, but the translator died with the work only partially done. A copy of the manuscript translation made its way into John Gerard's hands and he seized the opportunity, reorganizing the contents, obscuring the previous translator's contribution, incorporating aspects of Rembert and Cruydenboeck's works, and commandeering the result as his own.    Gerard abandoned Dodoen's classification, opting for l'Obel's instead, and, in a stroke of ambition and brilliance, illustrated the work with => more than 2500 woodcuts of plants. Many of these are large and all are attractive but more than a few were of plants he himself did not know, thus leading to considerable confusion between illustration and text in the earliest editions, this being third overall and the second with Thomas Johnson's additions and amendments. For both Johnson editions => a large number of the woodcuts were obtained from the famous Leyden printing and publishing firm of Moretus, successors to the highly famous firm of Plantin. As Johnston notes: "Most of the cuts were those used in the botanicals published by Plantin, although a number of new woodcuts were added after drawings by Johnson and Goodyer" (Cleveland Herbal . . . Collections, #185).    The large thick volume begins with a handsome engraved title-page by John Payne incorporating a bust of the author, urns with flowers and herbs, and full-length seated images of Dioscorides and Theophrastus and of Ceres and Pomona. Replacing the missing initial blank is a later leaf on which is mounted a large engraving of Gerard. The text is printed in italic, roman, and gothic type.    There is, to us, a surprising and very interesting section on grapes and wines. The first part of our caption delights partly in discovery that maize, the "corn" of the U.S., is here called "turkey wheat" ? with further note that you can make bread of it, but that the result is pleasing only to "barbarous" tastes! The entry as a whole shows => Gerard at his characteristic best, at once scientifically systematic and engagingly discursive.    Provenance: Neatly lettered name of "W. Younge" at top of title-page; it is tempting to attribute this to William Younge, physician of Sheffield and Fellow of the Linnean Society, whose online correspondence shows him to have been an eager collector of botanical books.         STC (rev. ed.) 11752; Alden & Landis, European Americana, 636/25; Nissen, Botanischebuchs, 698n; Pritzel 3282n; Johnston, The Cleveland Herbal, Botanical, and Horticultural Collections, 185; Woodward, Gerard's Herball: The essence thereof distilled (London, 1964). On the source of the blocks, see: Hunt Botanical Catalogue and Bowen, K. L., & D. Imhof, The illustration of Books Published by the Moretuses (Antwerpen, 1997). For "Turkey Wheat, " see: Gerard, p. 81; for polenta, p. 71. Late 17th-century English calf, plain style; rebacked professionally in the 20th century, later endpapers. As usual, without the first and last blank leaves. Three leaves with natural paper flaws in blank margins. A very good copy.

        El siglo pitagorico, y Vida de don Gregorio Guadañia.

      Of Portuguese-Jewish origins, Enríquez Gómez was a dramatist and novelist who found it both convenient and necessary to flee Spain for France in about 1636 (when he was about 35 years old) and luckily found favor at the court of Louis XIII. Around 1657 he moved to Amsterdam and openly professed his Judaism, causing him to be burned in effigy in Spain. His present novel mixes elements of the picaresque with fantasy. As one scholar succinctly put it: "The Siglo Pitagorico of Antonio Enriquez Gomez (1644) . . . ingeniously replace[s] the passage of a servant from master to master by the transmigrations of a soul from body to body. The longest prose section of this partially versified narrative was the 'Life' of Don Gregorio Guadana, [who is out and out] a picaro" (Chandler, p. 13). The same scholar neatly connects this Spanish novel to an English one that appeared 100 years later (1749): "It is in the device of satire upon estates through transmigrations in lieu of successive employments that Fielding [in his Journey from this World to the Next] recalls the Siglo Pitagorico of Enriquez Gomez" (p. 802).This is a "fictitious imprint" in that => its given date is false, there being two distinct editions each with a title-page stating it is "Segun el exemplar en Rohan, De la emprenta de Lavrentio Maurry. MDCLXXXII" but with one edition's last numbered page being 268 and the other's being 292 (i.e., 308) as offered here. Charles Amiel argues convincingly based on textual analysis, in his critical edition of the work, that the 292/308-page edition in hand is a => counterfeit of the true 1682 edition. Much less convincingly he postulates a publication date as late as 1725, the year before the third edition was printed; whereas had he examined the watermarks in the paper of the text he would have limited the range of publication dates to ca. 1699 -- a dating based on my personal experience of almost 50 years cataloguing Hispanic books and manuscripts and always paying special attention to watermarks (DMS).
