BESLER, Basil (1561-1629)
Eichstatt: 1640, 2nd edition. Hand-coloured engraving. 20 5/8 x 16 1/4 inches. 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.

PARIS, Matthew.
London: Richard Hodgkinson for Cornelius Bee & Laurence Sadler 1640 - Folio, (350x227mm), [50],1009,[125],310,[14]p. frontispiece portrait engraved by T. Cecill, the seperate part title to Vitae Duorum Offarum present and carring the imprint of Miles Flesher as printer, dated 1639, paper reapir to the final leraf (without loss) and some slightly soiling of the first (licence) and final leaf. Contemporary, or near-contemporary, calf, the joints and corner tips sometime repaired, some slight scratching of the leather surface and some wear to the edges, armorial bookplate of Victor Albert George Charles Villiers, Early of Jersey; Osterley Park. (ESTC S115363) Based on an earlier work by Roger of Wendover and also known as Flores historiarum, and probably based on an earlier St Albans chronicle, this new edition which appeared in 1640 was evidently a direct result of Matthew Parker's work. Indeed it was originally intended to be a mere reprint of Parker's edition, and its editor, Dr William Wats, who was chaplain to Prince Rupert, did not begin work on it until the text up to the annal for 1188 had been printed off. Wats's edition, though far from perfect, was a definite advance on Parker's. It was reissued twice (Paris, 1644; London, 1684), and was not superseded until Luard undertook in 1869 to re-edit the whole of the Chronica Majora for the Rolls Series. (Vaughan, Matthew Paris).

Ostküste -
Kupferstich-Karte von W. Blaeu, Amsterdam, ca. 1640, altkoloriert. Ca. 38,5 x 50,5 cm. Papier gleichmäßig gebräunt. Burden, Mapping of North America , no. 253, second state. Die Ostküste mit Virgina, Nord- und Süd-Carolina, Georgia und dem Norden Floridas. Dekorative Karte mit zwei Windrosen, Segelschiffen, figürlichem Meilenzeiger, zwei Wappen im Kartenbild und grosser Kartusche mit Indianern. Papier mit leichter dekorativer Bräunung. Aus Blaeus "Le Theatre du Monde, ou Novvel Atlas", Amsterdam 1640, mit französischem Rückentext. This map of Virginia, the Carolinas, Georgia and northern Florida is described by William P. Cumming in "The SouthEast in Early Maps" as "the most correct map of this area yet to appear." The map has both the English and French Royal Arms marking their areas of influence. The limited extent of knowledge of the area is apparent: the source of the St. Johns River, for example, is shown to be a large lake to the north west, in the Appalachian Mountains. There are many decorative elements including an ornate scroll title cartouche, with figures of Indians, based on le Moyne’s drawings, scale-bar cartouche and sailing ship vignettes. From "Le Theatre du Monde, ou Novvel Atlas", Amsterdam 1640, with french text. Paper browned, wide margins, contemporary handcolor. Sprache: ewb 2018.

Burden, Mapping of North America , no. 242. Dekorative Karte der Karibik aus Blaeus "Le Theatre du Monde, ou Novvel Atlas", Amsterdam 1640, mit französischem Rückentext. Cartographically the map draws on the extremely rare chart by Hessel Gerritsz, c. 1631. The area of coverage is exactly the same with the exception of Blaeu's addition of the west coast of Central America. The nomenclature of the North American part is virtually identical, the only notable addition being the naming of VIRGINIA. It reflects the firsthand knowledge of Gerritsz during his voyage to South America and the West Indies undertaken in 1628."- (Burden) From Blaeu's "Le Theatre du Monde, ou Novvel Atlas", Amsterdam 1640, with french text, original contemporary handcolour. Paper browned at right margin, centerfold browned at upper end, there also some minor faults. Wide margins. Sprache: ewb 2018.

Besler, Basilus
Nuremburg, 1640. Published in an edition of 300 in 1613, the Hortus Eysttensis is the earliest large folio botanical and is considered one of the greatest botanical books ever created. This is a very strong impression, with an early hand notating the species names in German below the label for each flower. Archivally framed. The fresh, strong impression & absence of any bleed-through of text from the verso would suggest that this is the second & preferred edition, published in 1640, but it cannot be categorically stated because of the framing.

BOTERO, Giovanni
Venice, I. Giunti,, 1640. Arricchite di cose rare, e memorabili, e con l'ultima mano dell'Autore. Quarto (212 × 160 mm). Late eighteenth-century Italian mottled sheep, smooth spine richly gilt in compartments, tan morocco label, patterned endpapers, red edges. With publisher's large woodcut device on title and 4 folding engraved continental maps (Europe, Asia, Africa, America); printed in italics. 18th-century inscription on title of the Carmelite monastery at Turin. Front joint neatly restored, label chipped with small loss, some headlines just shaved, still an attractive copy. First published in 1592. Giovanni Botero (1533–1617) was Secretary to the Duke of Savoy when he compiled his Relationi Universali; "this political and geographical description of the different countries of the world was very successful and translated into a number of languages" (Burden), including English (London 1603). Burden also notes that "for this issue [of 1640] by I. Giunti, a new set of copperplates was cut derived from those of earlier editions. The most noticeable difference is the addition of an unidentified line around the continent."

Per la prima volta viene qua pubblicato come trattato a sé stante. In pratica, il Cardano vuole riabilitare Nerone tentando di dimostrare come si formano i pregiudizi ed i pareri consolidati. Allo stesso tempo dà le indicazioni su come fare, attraverso l'utilizzo della ragione e dell'informazione, a rimuoverli. L'autore prende in esame parecchie fonti storiche (Tacito, Seneca, ecc.) e non cerca di negare i vari fatti di sangue (comunque giustificabili secondo Cardano) di cui si sarebbe macchiato quest'imperatore. ENGLISH TRANSLATION ON REQUEST. Size: in-12° (120 mm x 65 mm) [Attributes: Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]

BESLER, Basil (1561-1629)
Eichstatt, 1640. Hand-coloured engraving. In excellent condition with the exception of being trimmed within the platemark on the top margin. 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.

Hamond, Walter:
London: Printed for Nathaniel Butter, 1640.. [38]pp. Small quarto. Three-quarter antique-style calf and marbled boards, gilt morocco label. 19th-century armorial library bookplate on front pastedown. Closely trimmed, just touching the letter "A" on the titlepage and cropping the upper portion of a few running titles and catchwords. Titlepage soiled, with small ink spots affecting a few characters of text. Very good. The only edition of this rare utopian work describing the island of Madagascar and its inhabitants. The author, Walter Hamond (d. 1648) had by his own account traveled several times to Madagascar in the service of the East India Company, once "resident there Foure Moneths together." During the 1630s, as King Charles I was advised that Madagascar would be an ideal location for English traders bound for India and the Far East to refresh and repair their ships, Hamond composed A PARADOX..., encouraging further use of the island for colonization and trade. Describing the land of Madagascar in Edenic terms, Hamond begins his characterization of its inhabitants by referring to them as "a sluggish and slothfull people." "If any where," he writes, "the Proverbe, Terra bona, gens male, may here be applied" (A4v). He swiftly recasts them, however, as an innocent and virtuous race, whose "Nakednesse, Poverty, and Simplicity" demonstrate a happy, prelapsarian state instead of one of wretchedness or misery: "Now for Pride [of clothing and appearance], such is the Happinesse of these people, that they know not what it meanes, here is no man that respectech another the better … [Click Below for Full Description]
