        Melanthium Hispanicum maius [Spanish nigella]; Melanthium Sativum flore simplici [Love-in-a-mist]; Melantium Damascenum flore pleno [Love-in-a-mist]

      Eichstatt 1640 - Basil Besler published "Hortus Eystettensis", the earliest large folio botanical, at Eichstatt near Nuremburg, in 1613. He worked on the drawings for the 374 copper engravings over a period of sixteen years using the plants in the garden of Bishop Johann Conrad von Gemmingen, his patron. Depicted in this florilegium were flowers, herbs, vegetables and newly discovered plants such as tobacco and peppers. Besler was, in modern terms, a botanist and horticulturalist, and he was familiar with real and alleged medicinal properties of various plants. Besler had the good fortune to live at a time when exotic plants were being shipped to Europe from all over the world. The garden that he organized and illustrated for his patron was both ornamental and experimental, and the large book he had engraved after his drawings was unique. The prints, made by a team of master engravers, are strong and exquisitely done. Hand-coloured engraving. Trimmed to platemark right side, some mild creases,and faded manuscript notations beneath titles, otherwise, very good.

        Ã†thiopia Superior vel Interior; vulgo Abissinorum sive Presbiteri Ioannis Imperium.

      1640 - Amsterdam, 1640, Latin edition. Original colour. 385 x 505mm. A decorative map of Eastern Africa with the fictitious kingdom of Prester John, the mythical Christian king. The map shows a wide section of central and eastern Africa including Mozambique north to present day Sudan. Highly embellished with elephants, ostriches and other animals within the map, as well as the decorative cartouche. The two Ptolemaic lakes of Zaire and Zaflan are in the lower portion of the map. Lake Niger, and the supposed course of the Niger River, is shown flowing westward. This map is based on Ortelius' map of Prester John of 1573. The myth of Prester John, the good Christian King of Africa waging his own crusade and defeating the enemies of Christianity, was based upon earlier legends of the Crusaders and is a fascinating piece of early mythological cartographic history KOEMAN: Bl 22.

        Melocactos [Mother-in-law's cushion]; Rosa Hiericontea aperta [Rose of Jericho, unfolded]; Rosa Hiericontea enclusa [Rose of Jericho, folded]

      Eichstatt 1640 - Basil Besler published "Hortus Eystettensis", the earliest large folio botanical, at Eichstatt near Nuremburg, in 1613. He worked on the drawings for the 374 copper engravings over a period of sixteen years from the plants in the garden of Bishop Johann Conrad von Gemmingen, his patron. Depicted in this florilegium were flowers, herbs, vegetables and "exotic" plants such as tobacco and peppers. Besler and his brothers were familiar with real and alleged medicinal properties of the different plants, and they lived at a time when new, unknown plants were being shipped to Europe from all over the world. The garden that Besler organized and illustrated for his patron was both ornamental and experimental, and the large book he had engraved after his drawings was unique. The prints, made by a team of master engravers, are strong and exquisitely done. Hand-coloured engraving.

        Theatrum Botanicum, The Theater of Plants . Or An Universall and Compleat Herball

      London: Thomas Cotes, 1640. Folio, with elaborately engraved title-page and about 2700 woodcut illustrations in the text; a very good copy, the text clean and fresh, in an attractive later binding of smooth polished calf, with the armorial bookplate of "Brodie of Brodie" The largest early English herbal, with 2700 original woodblock illustrations. An especially good copy of this famous and beautiful English herbal, 'one of the two main pillars of botany in England till the time of Ray' (James Edward Smith). The largest herbal in English, this was also the last great medicinally-based plant study, by an author who thought of himself as first and foremost an apothecary. Early botanical works were frequently illustrated with original woodcuts, and this book is a marvellous example of the impressive beauty that the relatively naïve method of woodcut illustration conveys in a botanical work, with a flower portrayed in line in singular contrast to the accompanying botanical description: altogether two thousand seven hundred woodblocks were individually cut for this massive herbal, which describes more than four thousand plants, most of them with medicinal properties. Parkinson had given notice of his intention to compile an herbal in his Paradisus terrestris of 1629, but was delayed by the publication of the second Johnson edition of Gerarde's Herball, in 1636. This delay meant that Parkinson's work had time to grow much larger than originally planned, and on publication it included about one thousand more plants than Gerarde could, and describes many species not previously recorded. Natural history collecting in exotic lands was actively pursued from the earliest period of botanical study, and the earliest exploring ships were fitted out with special compartments for the transportation of animals and plants. Parkinson noted in his Paradisi in sole of 1629 that he had obtained a specimen of the "Scilla alba" in the manner of the day - which meant gathering with other collectors at the quay to meet the returning ships, and to purchase rare specimens directly from the sailors. John Parkinson (1567-1650), a London pharmacist, received the title of Royal Apothecary from James I. Later, Charles I appointed him as his chief botanist ("Botanicus Regius Primarius"). Parkinson had a private garden in Long Acre 'well stored with rarities' (Theatrum, p. 609). Work on his herbal was helped by notes and unpublished material by the French botanist Matthias de l'Obel who had lived in north London in the last years of his life.

        Africa.

      1640 - Rome: Rughesi, c.1597. Two sheets conjoined, total 530 x 700mm. Trimmed to neatline as probably published, old folds flattened. Some colour spotting. A large map of Africa, decorated with an ornate title cartouche and numerous ships and sea-monsters. Peculiarly the dedication to the Duke of Mantua and his armorial in the top corners have been masked by placing oval paper patches on the copper plate, leaving two unprinted areas. It is known from correspondence between Annibale Chiepo and Rughesi that the Duke failed to pay the second half of his promised commission to Rughesi, causing the publisher to remove the references to the duke. The only cartographic work of Fausto Rughesi, a Tuscan architect working in Rome, was a set of maps of the world and four continents, all originally dedicated to Vincenzo Gonzaga, Duke of Mantua (1562-1612). Gonzaga employed Giovanni Antonio Magini as tutor to his sons and has Magini's Atlas of Italy dedicated to him. Even individually Rughesi's maps are extremely rare: Betz and Burden could find only two examples each of the Africa and America respectively, and neither mention the two blanked-out areas. BETZ: 36, 'exceedingly beautiful, finely-engraved map of Africa. All of his maps are exceedingly rare'; See SHIRLEY 206 & BURDEN 108.
