        Relation du Groenland

Book 8vo. 16.5x 11cm, [xiv],272,[4]p. title page in facsimile, lacks map and frontis plates, bound in contemporary full vellum, incomplete copy of a rare book (cgc) T.P.L. 6322. Alden, Lande 1278, Rich, Sabin. cf. T.P.L. no. 21 for the first english translation; 1850. It is included in Recueil de Voiages au Nord, by J.F. Bernard. q.v. and a new English translation was printed in the Hakluyt Society's Publications no. 18. 1855. This relation, generally regarded as material on Greenland, is rather more an account of regions further west. It is written in the form of a letter to Monsieur de La Mothe le Vayez containing accounts of voyages by Frobisher, Hudson, and Munck. La Peyere secured his material in Demark while a member of the French ambassador's staff, 1644-45, but his work contains many inaccuracies. Captain Johan Munck, an early explorer of the north-west portion of Hudson Bay, is mentioned on the map in this edition. (Wanting in this copy). The unnumbered pages at the beginning of the book are an advertisement describing the map. .

        The Holy Bible containing the Old Testament and the New, newly translated out of the orginal tongues...

      Herbert # 598, 1647, 8vo 6.75" x 4.5" x 2", Very Good, FIRST EDITION, The earliest English Bible which bears the imprint of the Company of Stationers. Printed during the English Civil War and just two years before the execution of King Charles 1 by Cromwell at Whitehall. :The Worshipful Company of Stationers and Newspaper Makers (usually known as the Stationers' Company) is one of the Livery Companies of the City of London. The Stationers' Company was formed as an organisation in 1403; it received a Royal Charter in 1557. It held a monopoly over the publishing industry and was officially responsible for setting and enforcing regulations until the enactment of the Statute of Anne in 1710.Its members (Master, Wardens, Assistants, Liverymen, Freemen and Apprentices) are mostly involved with the modern visual and graphic communications industries which have evolved from the company's original trades. These include printing, papermaking, packaging, office products, engineering, advertising, design, photography, film and video production, publishing of books, newspapers and periodicals and digital media. The Company's principal purpose nowadays is to provide an independent forum where its members can advance the interests (strategic, educational, training and charitable) of the industries associated with the Company.In 1403, the Corporation of London approved the formation of a Guild of Stationers. At this time, stationers were either text writers, lymners (illuminators), bookbinders or booksellers who worked at a fixed location (stationarius) beside the walls of St Paul's Cathedral. Booksellers sold manuscript books, or copies thereof produced by their respective firms for retail; they also sold writing materials. Illuminators illustrated and decorated manuscripts.Printing gradually displaced manuscript production so that, by the time the Guild received a Royal Charter of Incorporation on 4 May 1557, it had in effect become a Printers' Guild. In 1559, it became the 47th in City Livery Company precedence. At the time, it was based at Peter's College, which it bought from St. Paul's Cathedral. During the Tudor and Stuart periods, the Stationers were legally empowered to seize "offending books" that violated the standards of content set down by the Church and State; its officers could bring "offenders" before ecclesiastical authorities, usually the Bishop of London or the Archbishop of Canterbury depending on the severity of the trangression. Thus the Stationers played an important role in the culture of England as it evolved through the intensely turbulent decades of the Protestant Reformation and toward the English Civil War.The Stationers' Charter, which codified its monopoly on book production, ensured that once a member had asserted ownership of a text (or "copy") no other member was entitled to publish it. This is the origin of the term "copyright". Members asserted such ownership by entering it in the "entry book of copies" or the Stationers' Company Register. The Register of the Stationers' Company became one of the most essential documentary records in the later study of English Renaissance theatre. (In 1606 the Master nof the Revels, who was responsible for licensing the performance of plays rather than their publication, acquired some overlapping authority over publication as well; but the Stationers' Register remained a crucial and authoritative source of information after that date too.) To be sure, enforcement of the rules was always a challenge, in this area as in other aspects of the Tudor/Stuart regime; and plays and other works were sometimes printed surreptitiously and illegally.In 1603, the Stationers formed the English Stock, a joint stock publishing company funded by shares held by members of the Company. This profitable business gained many patents of which the richest was for almanacks including Old Moore's Almanack. The business employed out-of-work printers and disbursed some of the profit to the poor.In 1606, the Company bought Abergavenny House in Ave Maria Lane and moved out of Peter's College. The new hall burnt down in the Great Fire of 1666 along with books to the value of about £40,000. It was rebuilt and its present interior is much as it was when it reopened in 1673. The Court Room was added in 1748 and in 1800 the external façade was remodelled to its present form.In 1695, the monopoly power of the Stationers' Company was diminished, and in 1710 Parliament passed the Copyright Act of 1709, the first copyright act.The Company established the Stationers' Company School at Bolt Court, Fleet Street in 1861 for the education of sons of members of the Company. In 1894, the school moved to Hornsey in north London. It closed in 1983.Registration under the Copyright Act of 1911 ended in December 1923; the Company then established a voluntary register in which copyrights could be recorded to provide printed proof of ownership in case of disputes.In 1937, a Royal Charter amalgamated the Stationers' Company and the Newspaper Makers' Company, which had been founded six years earlier (and whose members were predominant in Fleet Street), into the Company of the present name.The Company's motto is Verbum Domini manet in aeternum, Latin for The Word of the Lord endures forever.Collation and Condition:GENERAL TITLE PAGE, 1 page, printed by the Company of Stationers in 1647, full page architectural engraving featuring King David playing his harp, verso with royal coat of arms, HISTORIC !, COMPLETE.KING JAMES DEDICATION, 1 page, features lovely floriated header and initial, verso with the names and order of all the books of the old and new testament with the number of their chapters, VERY CLEAN !, COMPLETE.

      Wolfenbüttel, Johann Bißmarck für Michael Cubach in Lüneburg, 1647. - Erste Ausgabe der Sammlung von Schottelius‘ Dichtungen in Poesie und Prosa. "Auf dem Frontispiz stellt Schottel in programmatischer Weise seine Lyriksammlung vor: Der kunstvoll angelegte Lustgarten wird von einer Mauer von der unkultivierten, unfruchtbaren Natur abgegrenzt. Einzig die Palme (das Sinnbild der Fruchtbringenden Gesellschaft; W. B.) ist so beschaffen, daß sie, allen zu Nutzen, im Wüstensand gedeiht und über die Mauer hinweg den Pflanzen Schatten spendet. Ein 'Lusthäuslein' wird von der Göttin Ceres mit dem Füllhorn bekrönt. Im Vordergrund stehen fünf Gewächse mit sinnvollen Inschriften, ganz nach der Manier der Fruchtbringer. Schottel nimmt sich damit das Privileg heraus, das in der FG nur Fürst Ludwig als dem Oberhaupt zusteht. Seine fünf Pflanzen oder Gewächse widmet er – ohne Rücksicht auf botanische Verbindungen zu anderen Gesellschaftsmitgliedern – den ihm anbefohlenen fünf Kindern Herzog Augusts: für Sibylle Ursula das Vergißmeinnicht, für Anton Ulrich (den späteren Siegprangenden, FG 716) das Röslein, für Clara Augusta den Rosmarin, für Ferdinand Albrecht (den späteren Wunderlichen, FG 842) den Ehrenpreis, für Maria Elisabeth endlich den Augentrost. Merkwürdigerweise wird der älteste Sohn, Rudolf August (später FG 754), nicht berücksichtigt. Die Erklärung des Gewächses und des 'Worts' erfolgt jeweils am Ende der den fünf Kindern einzeln gewidmeten Büchern" (Bircher).

        A gorgeous document with ornate seal intact signed by a member of the Standish family of Duxbury, Lancashire - likely relations to Plymouth Colony leader Myles Standish who founded Duxbury, Massachusetts

      Manuscript Document Signed "Rd Standish," one page, 13.25" x 10.5", on vellum with scallop top, November 25,1647. Light folds, with intact wax seal affixed by a strip of vellum at bottom center. Fine condition. Richard Standish (1620 - 1662) English politician who sat in the House of Commons for Preston from 1659 - 60. Richard was the son of Thomas Standish (c. 1593 - 1642) who sat in Parliament for Preston during the Short Parliament of 1640 and in the Long Parliament until 1642. Standish, who lived at Duxbury Manor in Lancashire, was very possibly a relative of Myles Standish, one of the founders of Plymouth Colony in 1620. The document is an agreement between Richard Standish "of Duxbury in the County of Lancashire" granting Anthony Foxcroft of Halifax, York and Robert Somers an annuity of £250 "going out of all those his Mannors [sic] or Lordships of Duxbury..." A fascinating document worthy of further research. Much is known and has been written concerning the life of Myles Standish (c. 1584 - 1656) after he became associated with the English Separatists (i.e. Pilgrims) who founded the colony of Plymouth in 1620. However, very little is known about Standish's early life including his place of birth, and for nearly two centuries, this question has been been the subject of scholarly debate. The little we know about Standish's origins come from his will, drafted in 1656, in which he granted to his "son & heire apparent Alexander Standish all my lands as heire apparent by lawfull decent in Ormskirke Borscouge Wrightington Maudsley Newburrow Crowston and in the Isle of man and given to mee as Right heire by lawfull decent but Surruptuously detained from mee My great Grandfather being a 2cond or younger brother from the house of Standish of Standish."(Charles H. Simmons, Jr., Plymouth Colony Records, Volume 1, Wills and Inventories 1633-1669 ,Camden, ME: Picton Press, 1996, 312-314) Of all the places named, one is on the Isle of Man while the remaining are places in Lancashire where a branch of the Standish family resided, centered at Duxbury Hall. A short passage written by Plymouth Colony's secretary, Nathaniel Morton notes a similar origin for Standish, noting he "...was a gentleman, born in Lancashire, and was heir apparent unto a great estate of lands and livings, surreptitiously detained from him; his great grandfather being a second or younger brother from the house of Standish..."(Nathaniel Morton, New England's Memorial, Boston: Congregational Board of Publication, 1855, 6th ed., 170). Unfortunately, that is all that is known about his origins. However, the fact that Standish founded the town of Duxbury in Plymouth Colony would suggest that his origins were indeed from Lancashire and not the Isle of Man. It is not known whether Alexander Standish (1626 - 1702) ever pursued these claims.

First collected edition. Engraved portrait frontispiece of Fletcher by William Marshall (in second state, reading "Vates Duplex" for "vates duplex," and with "J.Berkenhead" in small type).

This is the last of the three great published collections of Jacobean drama. It appeared decades after the deaths of the authors, but still echoes the format of the earlier folios containing the works of their great contemporaries: Ben Jonson and Shakespeare. The present work contains 34 plays and a masque, but not all the plays are by Beaumont and Fletcher. As with the earlier folios, the printing of this work was undertaken by several printers, including Susan Islip: a rare example of a female printer in the 17th century. This copy from the library of a great champion of African-American civil rights, Arthur Barnette Spingarn, an ally of W.E.B. Du Bois and head of the NAACP legal committee. The first publication of the play The Knight of Malta (which features an African villainess) perhaps explains Spingarn's interest in this work.

Willem Janszoon Blaeu [1571- 1668] had set up the business in Amsterdam 1596 following studies with the famous astonomer Tycho Brahe. In 1630 Willhem published his first atlas "Atlas Appendix", having published maritime cartography, books, charts and pilot guides for previous thirty years. Appointed Hydrographer of the V. O. C.

Dr Joan Blaeu [ 1596-1673] who had studied at Leiden took over the management of the business and established its fame. He was also appointed Hydrographer to the V. O. C. ( 1638), but his interests leant more to geography than maritime cartography. His aim was" a full description of heaven, earth and water" ( Koeman) which was unachievable. but his work produced the magnificent "Atlas Major" and the Town books of the Netherlands and Italy; works unsurpassed in history and modern times. The "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum " or "Atlas Novus" Willem Blaeu's great project enlarging the "Appendix" was advertised in 1634, was first published in a preliminary edition in 1635.

Joan Blaeu recognised that the wealthy patrons who would buy such an atlas were primarily concerned with display, thus aesthetic considerations were emphasised: the quality of the paper, binding, beautiful typography and bright colour, making maps from the Blaeu printing house amongst the most decorative of their time.

      Paris, Augustin Courbe, 1647.. 5 volumes fort in-8, plein velin ivoire de l'epoque (qqs accrocs de velin et epidermures), frontispice repete en tete de chaque partie (il manque au tome III), portrait d'Astree repete dans chaque volume, portrait d'Urfe repete aux t. 2 a 5; portrait de B. Baro au t. 5; 12 fig. par vol., certaines illustrations signees: D. Rabel, L. Bobrun, P. Daret, Ch. David ou M. Lasne. Derniere edition ancienne, illustree, l'edition de reference, la plus complete. "Edition integrale des cinq parties publiee par les libraires parisiens Courbe et Sommaville, qui constitue le point d'aboutissement de l'histoire editoriale et textuelle de 'L'Astree'. Elle reprend dans une seule unite editoriale le recit complet (tel qu'il a ete acheve apres la mort de l'auteur par son secretaire Balthazar Baro) qui se trouvait jusqu'alors disperse en diverses editions. A son caractere d'edition 'standard' contribue aussi son apparat iconographique. Les libraires ont en effet voulu qu'en plus du frontispice et des portraits qu'on avait pris l'habitude d'ajouter aux pieces liminaires de la premiere partie, chacun des douze livres de chacune des cinq parties du roman soit desormais precede d'une planche gravee sur cuivre, d'apres des dessins de Daniel Rabel (...). Sous le voile d'une fiction pastorale, 'L'Astree' sut offrir a une nation a peine sortie des dechirements sanglants des guerres de religion le modele culturel qui pouvait lui permettre de se hisser a la hauteur des plus riches litteratures europeennes, tout en assumant l'heritage d'une antiquite toujours vivante. Le roman d'Honore d'Urfe proposait a ses premiers lecteurs l'ideal philosophique, politique, esthetique, d'une culture affranchie de toute tyrannie ( ). Le rayonnement de l'oeuvre fut a la mesure de son reve civilisateur. Qu'il s'agisse de sa posterite litteraire ou de ses avatars artistiques, le long regne 'd'Astree' confirme avec eclat la dimension patrimoniale du roman" (cf. 'Le Regne d'Astree', CELLF en ligne). (Tchemerzine V, 945. Brunet V, 1014. En francais dans le texte, n°82). Exemplaire bien complet de son illustration qui reprend celle de l'edition de 1632-1633, sauf le frontispice du t. III qui manque. Quelques mouillures marginales, petits accrocs, petites dechirures et manques de papier epars, une incision en long (t. II, p. 561-575), galerie de ver au coin sup. des 200 dernieres pages du t. IV. Bon exemplaire, tous les volumes a la meme date et dans leur reliure uniforme d'origine, sans restauration..
