        The Herball or Generall Historie of Plantes. Gathered by John Gerarde of London, Master in Chirurgerie. Very much Enlarged and Amended by Thomas Johnson Citizen and Apothecarye of London

      Printed by Adam Islip, Joice Norton and Richard Whitakers, London 1636 - (13 3/8 x 8 3/4 inches). Engraved title by Payne with decorative surround incorporating a portrait of the author, over 2700 woodcut illustrations, various decorative initials, occasional woodcut head or tailpieces. Early owner's lengthy inscription on front endpaper. Contemporary calf, rebacked, spine with raised bands in seven compartments, black morocco lettering piece in the second Provenance: Gervas Holmes (armorial bookplate) The third [second Johnson] edition of Gerard's Herbal: a significant work for its vast collection of botanical illustrations, which remained the standard English reference for over two centuries. Gerard was superintendent of the gardens of William Cecil, Lord Burghley, one of the most influential members of the court of Elizabeth I. In addition to his work for Lord Burghley, Gerard also raised many exotic plants in his own gardens and travelled extensively in search of new specimens. The first edition of the present work, published in 1597, was much praised for the elegance of the descriptions, but Johnson's re-editing of the work after Gerard's death undoubtedly greatly improved the accuracy and breadth of the original work. "Johnson's Gerard", with over 2700 woodcuts, is almost half as long again as the first edition. Johnson was commissioned by the publishers to produce this amended and enlarged edition at short notice in order to forestall Parkinson's Theatrum Botanicum , which was believed to be imminent, (it finally appeared in 1640), and he complains bitterly in his preface that he "was forced to performe this task within the compasse of a yeare." Almost all of the woodcuts were from a different source from Gerard's (mostly from Plantin's stock) but some of the figures Johnson drew himself, notably the famous bunch of bananas on page 1516. This had been to given him on 10th April 1633 by Dr. Argent, President of the College of Physicians of London, who had received it from Bermuda. Johnson's drawing is the first illustration of bananas to be published in England. Having drawn and described them, he says, the stalke with the fruit thereon I hanged up in my shop, where it became ripe about the beginning of May, and lasted until June . it did eate somewhat like a Muske-Melon." The shop was in Snow Hill, in the City, and it must have been there also that John Payne studied this unknown fruit before incorporating it into his engraved title-page. Cf. Bradley I, p.283; Henrey 156; Hunt 230; Nissen BBI 698; STC 11752. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Greece. "????s. Graecia Sophiani

      Greece: A Paris " "Chez N Langlois rue Saint Jaques àla Victoire" c1640-60. Copper engraved map of Greece after Ortelius by Henri Le Roy. Original outline colour; verso blank. Decorative title cartouche and scale. The map by Henri Le Roy seems to have first been published by Michel Van Lochom in 1636 and then by J Boisseau in 1643 in his " Tresor des Cartes Géographiques". Thereafter the plate seems to have passed through a number of hands including that of Pierre Mariette who was stepfather to Nicolas Langlois the present publisher. Dark impression; signs of former framing, leading to toning and tape to edges on verso; dampstain to lower margin; centrefold split, due to removal of guard, repaired to verso. Henri Le Roy (1579-1652) was a Parisian engraver. Little is known about Le Roy, however the British Museum have a set of plates by him depicting insects "Le Jardin de Sauterelles et Papillons," France, c1650 which they believe were intended to serve as a pattern for craftsmen working in the decorative arts such as embroidery or metalwork. The Victoria and Albert Museum also have a further series of engravings" this series of seven frieze designs, which could have been put to use as designs for architectural ornaments, textiles or other objects" Both of these fit with the publisher Michel van Lochom "Graveur et Imprimaeur du Roy" who published a number of works on design and ornamentation and may well have asked Le Roy an engraver known to him to copy Ortelius map as interest increased in cartography in France. "The practice of plagiarizing prints or maps seems to have been common in the seventeenth century,and it does not seem to have been dishonorable: consider, for example, the copies of Dutch maps from the Nether- lands (of Artois and Boulonnaise, Hainaut and Cambrésis, Luxembourg, and Savoy) signed by Pierre Duval, the nephew of Nicolas I Sanson d'Abbeville, in 1646 and published by Pierre I Mariette." [Pastoureau",Les Atlas Français" ,pp497?"500."] Langlois, François (1588-1647) French. was a painter, publisher-printseller,and bookseller who lived on rue Saint-Jacques "AuxColonnes d'Hercules." his widow married Pierre Mariette II in 1655. In 1637, only 5 percent of his stoc kconsisted of topographical plates or blocks. The rest was composed of ornamental engravings In 1644, he bought part of Tavernier's stock. In 1655, eight years after Langlois's death, his son Nicolas I Langlois distributed the maps of French geographers, such as Tassin, Sanson,and Duval, as well as those of foreign cartographers, suchas Nicolaas Visscher and Vincenzo Coronelli. His own son was another Nicolas (c.1670-1707) who took over his father's shop in 1703.

      Appresso Giacomo Facciotti 1636 Prima edizione, dedicata a Francesco Brignole. Cm.23,7x16,2. Pg.(12), 676, (32). Sobria legatura in piena pergamena rigida. Tassello con titoli in oro al dorso a cinque nervature. Tagli bruniti su tonalità bluastra. Doppio frontespizio, il primo, assai decorativo, calcografico: su un cippo lapideo, ove sono indicati i titoli ed i dati editoriali, San Giorgio uccide il drago, in una plastica immagine liberamente tratta da un dipinto di Hans Von Aachen. Sullo sfondo una veduta prospettica del porto di Genova, tra il faro di San Benigno e la punta di Sampierdarena. Al secondo frontespizio e al colophon all'ultima carta marca tipografica con la Speranza assisa che tiene in mano un'ancora. In nastro il motto "In te domine speravi non confundar in aeternum". Capilettera ornati ed alcuni cartigli incisi. Leggere fisiologiche bruniture, ma eccellente esemplare, con margini inusuali per una edizione seicentesca. Ex libris nobiliare all'antiporta. L'opera principale, in edizione originale, dello storico ligure Agostino Mascardi (Sarzana, 1591 - 1640), rispettivamente figlio e nipote dei giureconsulti Alderano e Giuseppe. Mascardi fu Cameriere d'onore di Papa Urbano VIII, e tenne la cattedra di retorica nel Collegio Romano, e passò alle cronache del tempo per una non celata dedizione ai piaceri mondani. Il presente costituisce un importante trattato, in cui l'Autore fornisce i prodromi per una corretta ricerca storiografica, basandosi dichiaratamente sulla "Poetica" di Aristotele, rinvenuta nel secolo precedente. Belloni definì il Mascardi "il primo teorico della storiografia moderna".

        Manuscript - Nomogram & Sundial w/Drawings

      London, 1636. London, circa 1636-37. Exceedingly scarce manuscript on the complex science of dialling, dating to the great age of the European sundial, in which astronomer and mathematician Samuel Foster, distinguished Professor of astronomy at Gresham College, describes the construction and use of an Analemmatic sundial, a vertical sundial, and a declining sundial, for the purpose of keeping time. 8vo. approximately 15 x 18 cm, 12 pages on four double leafs, laid watermarked paper. Slight aging to extremities, otherwise in very good condition, beautifully preserved, a significant work. Foster's manuscript writings are exceedingly rare with the latest manuscript appearing at Sotheby's Macclesfield sale in 2004. By applying an instrument invented by the writer himself, and having established the scientific rules of dialling, Foster proceeds to instruct his appetent audience on the methods of constructing various types of sundials as precise time telling devices. A prominent subject at the time, Foster refers to previous lectures and concludes with a remark which reveals that his pioneering studies were still underway, as such aiding in dating the work. The mathematical construction employed by Foster was the nomogram, a calculating device consisting of a circle divided in two, with one quantity on one semi-circular arc, a second quantity on the other semi-circle, and a third along the diameter splitting the two, as illustrated herein. By placing a ruler across the circle, the required mathematical relationship will be ascertained by the three points it crosses. The device was likely made by esteemed instrument maker Anthony Thompson, also based at Gresham College, whom provided Foster with quadrants and other instruments built to Foster's designs. Interestingly, some authorities date the development of nomograms to 1905, attributing it to J. Clark, nearly three centuries after Samuel Foster's work. Four of Foster's treatises on dialling are bound in an eclectic volume of tracts by numerous authors which is held in the Emmanuel College library. This manuscript relates to Samuel Foster's most important invention, a computational device known as a dialling scale, and precedes the publication of his second and most significant book, as follows: In 1638 Foster wrote "The Art of Dialling; by a New, Easie, and Most Speedy Way... how to describe the Houre-lines upon all sorts of Plaines, Howsoever, or in what Latitude soever Situated..." which was printed in London by I. Dawson for F. Eglesfield (sold at the signe of the Marigold in Pauls Church-yard). This work described the construction of horizontal, vertical and inclining sundials using his dialing scale, the first circular nomogram. In his appendix, "shewing a ready way to find out the latitude of any place the Sunne... By the Meridian Altitude, and declination of the sun had; how to find the Latitude of the place, or the elevation of the Pole above the horizon", Foster recommended observing the altitude of the Sun above the horizon at mid-day (i.e. its highest point), and supplied a table of correction factors for the Sun's position along the ecliptic on every day of the year. He concluded the appendix with a worked example. (Finding the latitude of your location is vital in order to align the gnomon of a sundial correctly and so use the sundial to tell the time accurately.). Very Good.

        Mappa Aestivarvm Insularum, alias Barmudas.

      Amsterdam 1636 - Fine original color; excellent condition; elegantly framed. A beautiful example of this classic Dutch map of Bermuda. As were most 17th century maps of Bermuda, Hondius¿ was based on Richard Norwood¿s 1618 chart, executed in behalf of the Bermuda Company. The map thus includes the parishes and tribes allotted to the company¿s principal members with their names included, most of which survive in one form or another to this day. The map vividly illustrates how hazardous the coastline of Bermuda was and is to shipping by the almost unbroken ring of crosses signifying wrecks surrounding the island. The engraving actually includes two maps of Bermuda of different scales. Nestled within the hook of the island is another, smaller depiction of Bermuda, placed there to show its position and size relative to Cape Cod, Nova Scotia and Virginia. (Roanoke, Cape Henry and Cape Charles are all named). This design proved confusing to some later copiers, who dispensed with the mainland in their renditions while mistakenly retaining the smaller ¿Bermuda,¿ thereby transforming it into a small island off the coast of Bermuda. Palmer, MCS No. 19, map no. 8.

      ICCU VEAE003127; Philologia orientalis 223 (and for Obicini 222); for Shinaja: First and only edition of Obicini's Arabic, Syriac and Latin glossary, based on the 11th-century Arabic and Syriac glossary compiled by the East Syriac scholar, monk and priest Elija bar Shinaja from Shenna in what is now northern Iraq, metropolitan of Nisibis from 1008. Shinaja's version is also known as "The book of the interpreter". The words are arranged by subject and set in three columns with, from right to left, Arabic, Syriac and Latin. It opens from the right, like an Arabic or Syriac book. The Index alphabeticus has its own title-page, pagination and series of signatures, but forms an appendix to the Thesaurus, providing an alphabetical index to the Latin words and phrases. With an inscription on the back paste-down. With 4 quires badly browned and some others somewhat browned. Otherwise in good condition and with all three integral blank leaves. The binding has some worm holes in the boards and a couple small holes in the hinges, but is structurally sound. A pioneering work in the European study of the Arabic and Syriac languages.

        [Annalia Dvbrensia. Vpon the Yeerly Celebration of Mr. Robert Dovers Olimpick Games Vpon Cotswold-Hills]

      London: Printed for Robert Raworth, 1636. (COTSWOLD GAMES) First edition of this very rare poetical miscellany, including contributions by Drayton, Jonson, Randolph, Feltham, Heywood, and many others. Small quarto. Engraved (facsimile) frontispiece depicting the Cotswold Games. Robert Dover, founder of the games, is on horseback, carrying a wand. [34] leaves (of 35 or 36). 19th-century quarter morocco and boards (spine quite rubbed), an imperfect copy, with the frontispiece in facsimile, and wanting the title leaf, some foxing and tanning early and late, K1 trimmed a bit close at fore-edge, barely touching a few letters, an occasional headline slightly cropped, otherwise a reasonably good (though still imperfect) copy, the front binder's endsheet and pastedown bear some neat 19th century bibliographic annotations, a book plate, and an 1813 ownership inscription. Case 84; ESTC S111583; STC 24954 . Case and ESTC locate variants, the former recording a literal reprint with an added poem on K2 (not present here, and cited by Case as 84b), and the latter copies with one of three different dedicatory leaves added (none here present). The poems praise Robert Dover for his stewardship and promotion of the Cotswold Games, beginning ca. 1612, although it is unclear whether Dover actually started the event, or simply elaborated upon a more modest pre-extant celebration. The Games ended for a period in 1642, after the outbreak of the Civil War, but were revived in 1660, and persisted in forms both temperate and intemperate through 1850. A modern revival, beginning in 1965 under the sponsorship of the Robert Dover's Games Society, has been formalized. ESTC, which does not distinguish Case's reprint with the extra poem on K2, locates 9 copies of this edition in North America (including the variants), and even the early 18th century reprint (dated conjecturally 1720 by ESTC, and which features added text on the verso of A2) is uncommon. No copy at auction (until 2013 when it brought £2800) Writing in 1972, the athletics coach and sports journalist Ron Pickering said: "The influence of English rural sports, and the work of William Penny Brookes and Robert Dover, have been significant in the development of the Olympic Games philosophy. Almost half the events in the Modern Games are historically connected to British rural sports. Therefore we have a certain arrogant claim and a responsibility to the development of the Modern Olympic Games"

It was published by Obicini?s pupil Germanus de Silesia, author of an Arabic Grammar and an Italian-Arabic dictionary. It is dedicated by Achilles Venerius to Cardinal Barbarini. The Syriac types are the 20pt Maronite types and the Arabic of the text Granjon?s arabe du kitãb al-Bustãn.Thomas Obicini (1585-1632) from Novara, was abbot of the Franciscan convent at Aleppo. In 1621 he returned to Rome and became first lector of Arabic in the St Peter Convent. He was responsible for the supervision of the type designs of Oriental types at the Propaganda Press. The author warns the reader against irregularities in the text, owing to the difficulties in printing Arabic texts, and the new type. The Propaganda Press was founded in 1622 and in 1626 a true printing house was established together with a foundry named after the Congregatio. To its stock were added exotic types from the Stamperia Vaticana. The Press printed missals, grammars, dictionaries and Alphabeta.Schnurrer, Bibliotheca Arabica, pp.38-39.See Graf IV 175.
