        Lives of the Noble Grecians and Romans

      1676 - PLUTARCH. The Lives Of The Noble Grecians and Romans". BOUND WITH: Prosopographia: Or, Some Select Pourtraitures and Lives of Ancient and Modern Illustrious Personages. Cambridge: Printed by John Hayes, 1676. Thick folio, modern full tan speckled calf, raised bands, brown morocco spine labels. $2500.Expanded and highly desirable sixth edition of the first English translation of Plutarch's Lives, one of the most influential works of the Elizabethan era and a major Shakespeare source. With 25 "Eminent Persons of Ancient and latter times" by Thevet""five of which are new to this edition, including Christopher Columbus and Hernando Cortéz."The Lives are works of great learning and research, and Plutarch is careful to quote his authorities, whose number indicates a formidable amount of reading". Early translated, by Amyot into French and by North into English, the influence of Plutarch's method has been constantly manifest in the biographies of the modern great and in the authors who have been inspired by it. Shakespeare relied almost exclusively on Plutarch for the historical background of ancient Rome" (PMM 48). "North dedicated the book to Queen Elizabeth, and it was one of the most popular of her day. It is written throughout in admirably vivid and robust prose. But it is as Shakespeare's storehouse of classical learning that it presents itself in its most interesting aspect. To it (it is not too much to say) we owe the existence of the plays of Julius Caesar, Coriolanus, and Antony and Cleopatra, while A Midsummer Night's Dream, Pericles and Timon of Athens are all indebted to it" (DNB). North's translation, the first into English, was published in 1579. This copy of the sixth edition bound with André Thevet's Prosopographia (first published 1584; his last published work), written in imitation of Plutarch's work, with numerous biographies of later classical, medieval and even contemporary American personages; the 25 biographies and portraits include Cortez, Columbus and Gutenberg. George Gerbier d'Ouvilly's Thevet first appeared with North's Plutarch in 1657, although the last five biographies (including Cortez and Columbus) first appeared in this edition. Engraved allegorical frontispiece, featuring portrait of Plutarch, with explanation on facing page. Title page of Lives printed in red and black. With woodcut medallion portraits within ornamental borders throughout Plutarch's Lives and copper-engraved portraits throughout Thevet's additional Lives. Decorative woodcut initials and headpieces throughout. With extensive indexes. Plutarch: Wing P2634; Brueggemann, 319-20; Moss II:514; see PMM 48. Thevet: Wing T888A. Owner ink signature; evidence of page tipped to front free endpaper.Text clean. Closed tear to one leaf (B6), affecting text but without loss. Attractive binding fine.

        De Varietate Faciei Humanae, discursus physicus. Appendicis loco accedunt carmina figurata, Rabani Mauri. Dresdae, apud Mart. Gabrielem Hubnerum, ex officina Electorali, typis viduae e haeredum Melchioris Bergenii, MDCLXXVI (1676)

      Hubner, Martin Gabriel, 1676. in-4, pp. (16), 69, VIII (Rabano Mauro), (4) e una tavola in antiporta incisa f.t., con raffigurazione delle 12 tipologie di volti individuati. Legatura contemporanea d'artista che rielabora graficamente in negativo un carme figurato dell'opera, dorso in pelle con titolo in oro. Titolo e parte del testo stampati in rosso e nero. Altra tavola inc. f.t. tra le pag. 35 e 36. Prima ed unica edizione di questo curioso trattato di fisiognomica atto ad individuare corrispondenze matematiche e alfabetiche nella struttura dei volti. Come spiega l'autore (1650-1704) da p. 69 inserì 8 pagine dei Carmina figurata, primo esempio di poesia visuale di Rabano Mauro, poiché gli esemplari cinquecenteschi di tale opera erano già rari: "Quum supra pag. 32. mentio facta fuerit Carminis Rabani figurati, nec operis ejus copia omnibus sit, qui eo genere scripturae delectantur, missis viginti, quae insuper composuit VIII coronidis loco hic adjicere visum fuit, e sunt quae sequntur".

        Theologiae verè Christianae Apologia

      12 p.l., 374, [24] pp., one leaf of errata. 4to, cont. English dark blue morocco (unimportant scuffing to extremities), covers panelled in gilt & blind, spine finely gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine, a.e.g. Amsterdam: J. Claus & others, 1676. First edition, rare, and a splendid copy bound in contemporary English dark blue morocco, most probably for presentation, of the classic exposition of the Quaker philosophy. The Society of Friends, as Quakers are more formally known, has historically had an outsized influence through the mere force of passive resistance. Their form of Christianity is "widely divergent from the prevalent types, being a religious fellowship which has no formulated creed demanding definite subscription, and no liturgy, priesthood or outward sacrament, and which gives to women an equal place with men in church organization."-Encyc. Brit. The Quakers were also instrumental in the colonization of New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Following the foundation of the Society of Friends by George Fox in 1647, its adherents issued a large body of polemical pamphlets and tracts, most of negligible literary merit. The need to combat persecution caused Barclay (1648-90), a member of a notable Scottish family who had converted to Quakerism in 1666-67, to write a series of "books that became the definitive statement of the Quaker faith for upwards of two centuries."-ODNB. In 1675 he published his Theses Theologiae, a series of 15 propositions spelling out Quaker beliefs. The Apologia, which Barclay had printed in Amsterdam during a period of travel or voluntary exile, is a full and reasoned defense of each of the 15 theses set forth in the earlier work. This work has been reprinted many times and in many languages. Leslie Stephen described it in D.N.B. as "impressive in style; grave, logical, and often marked by the eloquence of lofty moral convictions…One of the most impressive theological writings of the century…[Barclay's] recognition of a divine light working in men of all creeds harmonises with the doctrine of toleration, which he advocates with great force and without the restrictions common in his time." This first edition was undoubtedly printed in a very small number. The present large, attractive copy appears to have been bound for presentation, and may have been one of the copies sent in February 1678 to each of the ambassadors at the peace congress of Nijmegen. Fine and handsome copy, preserved in a box. With the Princes of Starhemberg stamp (sale Cologne, 16 September 1956, lot 941).

        A map of Russia.

      1676. Copper engraving, mm 400x508 (sheet size: mm 417x532), later hand colouring. English text on verso.One of the most decorative maps of western Russia bounded by the North, White, Black and Caspian Seas. The map follows the work of Gerritsz and Blaeu, including the bird's-eye plan of Moscow in an inset at top left. At right are views of Narva, Archangel Sckagoroda, the Emperor's Court, a hot house, and a mill. The title cartouche features several Russian gentlemen, one of whom is holding the coat of arms of the Russian Empire. Engraved by Francis Lamb, whose imprint appears at bottom right, this map was published only in the 1676 edition of Speed's Prospect of The Most Famous Parts of the World. . . , published by Bassett & Chiswell in 1676. For this edition, the publishers (Speed had been dead for 50 years) added this map of Russia, along with other maps of Asia and north America. As a result, these are by far the scarcest of the regional maps from Speed's. Good condition, partly remargined on three sides, minor restoration at centerfold.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. Vigevano, 20. I. 1676.

      1676. 1 S. auf gefalt. Bogen. Folio. Als Bischof von Vigevano in der Lombardei, an den Dominikaner Raimondo Capizucchi (1615-91), der seit 1654 das Amt des "maestro del sacro palazzo apostolico" bekleidete (und 1681 Kardinal wurde), in Zusammenhang mit der bevorstehenden Ernennung des Lorenzo Mayers Caramuel (1617-83) zum Bischof von Castellamare: "Son tantos los favores que V. S. R.ma ha hecho y haze siempre a Caramuel, que el por no ser ingrato, y viendo que en un sugeto no puede cumplir con lo mucho que debe, se multiplica para poder servir mejor en diversos suppuestos. Digolo, porque bessara la mano de V. S. R.ma Monsenor Laurecio Mayers Caramuel, nombrado obispo de Castelmar, para que V. S. R.ma le reciba en el numero de sus servidores, y lo comunique las gracias y favores que suele. En mi libro, que offrecera a V. S. R.ma conocera el mundo, que conosco la denda ya que es tanta que no la puedo reconoscer. Acabo rogando a Dios nos guarde y prospere la persona de V. S. R.ma [...]". Spätes Schreiben des bis zur Sprunghaftigkeit geistig wendigen Theologen und Ingenieurs. Böhmischer Abstammung und aus Madrid gebürtig, wirkte er u. a. in Löwen, Schottland, Wien und Prag, bevor er seinem Protektor Kardinal Chigi (nunmehr Papst Alexander VII.) nach Italien folgte. Auch Kaiser Ferdinand III. förderte ihn lange aufgrund seiner Kenntnisse in der Festungsbaukunst und seiner heroischen Verteidigung Prags gegen die Schweden im Jahre 1648; das Bistum Vigevano verdankte er der Intervention der Habsburger. Er publizierte zu einer Fülle von Themen, darunter eine der ersten Behandlungen des Binärsystems (wie auch der praktischen Anwendung der Wahrscheinlichkeitsrechnung auf das Glücksspiel). - Lorenzo Mayers Caramuel wurde am 27. April 1676 zum Bischof von Castellamare di Stabia in Süditalien ernannt und am 10. Mai geweiht. 1678 wurde er Bischof des nahen Gaeta. - Faltspuren.

        Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine. Montgomery Shire.

      London: Bassett & Chiswell 1676 - Single sheet (15 x 20 inches) Full margins showing the plate mark (slight browning to edge, foxing). A handsome uncolored map of Montogmeryshire, as part of John Speed's famous Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine. The copper plates for this map were gngraved by Jodocus Hondius in his workshop in Amsterdam, resulting in a prime example of the level of craft and detail found in the Atlas. A title cartouche baring the royal coat of arms flanked by a set of hounds, introduce us to this stunning map of Montgomery Shire. A desirable and innovative aspect to Speed's maps are his town plan insets. Here we find the town of Montgomery laid out by John Speed himself, as indicated by the 'Scale of Pases'. This town plan was particularly mapped to the smallest details, such as the water well and towers. The key for his letter guide to the significant roads and buildings and Montgomery shield are also included. The coat of arms of Phillip Herbert, the 1st Earle of Montgomery, is showcased in the lower left corner. Philip was first given the title of 4th Earl of Pembroke and was the chief favorite of James I for many years. In 1605, King James I of England created him Earl of Montgomery and Baron Herbert of Shurland. In 1630, when he succeeded to the Earldom of Pembroke, the head of the Herbert family has carried the double title of Earl of Pembroke and Montgomery. The arms shown here are used for the representations of both titles. This edition of the map has the later addition of a strapwork frame, holding the text "Described by Christopher Saxton Augemented and published by John Speed and are to be solde by the Thomas Bassett in Fleetstreet, and Ric Chiswell in St Paul's Churchyard". Some earlier published maps left this space blank. The county maps found in the Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine were the first consistent attempt to show territorial divisions, but it was mainly Speed's town plans that were the major innovation and probably his greatest contribution to British cartography. Together, they formed the first printed collection of town plans of the British Isles and, for at least 50 of the 73 included in the Theatre, it was the first time these towns had been mapped. While being the first English atlas of the British Isles, Speed's Atlas was also one of the first attempts to accurately survey Ireland and to incorporate a comprehensive list of their town plans into the maps. The 1676 edition of Speed's atlas never came with original color. The examples of this map of the Montgomeryshire should always be uncolored and never colored. Born in Cheshire, John Speed developed his interest in maps in the 1580s, after moving to London to pursue his passions outside of tailoring. He there joined the Society of Antiquaries, where his enthusiasm for cartography won him the attention of William Camden, Robert Cotton, and Sir Fulke Greville. By working with these figures, Speed was able to do a large amount of research for his own work. In 1596, Greville bequeathed Speed with an unlimited allowance to research, and then later write, the Historie of Great Britaine. It was during this project which Speed had the encouragement to add a cartographic supplement to the work - what we today know as his most famous atlas. After being first published in 1611-1612, the 'Theatre of Great Britain' dominated the seventeenth-century English map market, going through many reprints and editions. Thanks to the Atlas' success, Speed earned the title of England's most well-known Stuart period cartographer and his work became the blueprint for folio atlases until the mid-18th century. Historically, Speed is also noted for placing England into the mainstream of map publishing, which had been dominated by the Dutch since the late sixteenth century. This map of Montgomeryshire is an excellent part of the Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine, and would be an outstanding addition to all map collections.

        Commentarius in Ruzname Naurus sive Tabulae aequinoctiales novi Persarum & Turcarum anni. Nunc primum editae è Bibliotheca, cujus accedit Dissertatio, de earundem usu. Augsburg, Johann Schönigk f. Theophil Göbel, 1676.

      1676. Small 4to. (14), 137, (19) pp. With engr. frontispiece and 22 engr. plates by Melchior Haffner. Contemporary calf. First facsimile edition of any oriental manuscript. 16 of the 22 finely engraved plates show a Persian perpetual calendar with Ottoman Turkish "commentarius" and floral borders. Welsch had acquired the ms. from Christoph Weikmann's Kunstkammer in Ulm. The remaining six plates are concerned with Arabian astronomy: astrolabe, orrery, zodiac, circular table of Sundays and names of the months in various languages. - The calculation of this calendar is today attributed to the 9th-c. Persian mathematician Wafâ al Buzjâni (cf. BSB München; Humboldt-Universität Berlin). The predominant attribution to one Turkish Sheikh Wafâ had been disputed by Babinger as early as 1927. Abu'l-Wafâ al Buzjâni is regarded as "the last great representative of the mathematics-astronomy school that arose around the beginning of the ninth century, shortly after the founding of Baghdad" (DSB I, 39). His astronomic oeuvre is preserved merely in fragments. The calligraphic commentary, however, is Turkish and (according to Babinger) was prepared by a 17th-c. magistrate, 'Ajn-i 'Alî Mueddinzâde. - Welsch (1624-77) was a physician and "a researcher of the very first magnitude [...] while the works of this polymath were mainly dedicated to the Arabian and Persian sciences, he also has provided proof of his close study of Ottoman Turkish. In this connexion, his important 'Commentarius in Ruzname Naurus' must be cited" (cf. Babinger 1919). Welsch's "Dissertatio" (with Arabic typeface) is aimed at the usefulness of the calendar for relative oriental chronology: he also compares the works of Schall von Bell and Andreas Müller on Chinese astronomy and chronology. - Bookplate of South Library on front pastedown.

        Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine. "Breknoke Both Shyre and Town described. Anno Domini 1610".

      London: Bassett & Chiswell 1676 - Single sheet (15 x 20 inches) Full margins showing the plate mark (slight browning to edge, light foxing, offsetting, small spot left) A handsome uncolored 1676 edition map of Breknokeshire (Brecknockshire); as part of the renowned Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine by English cartographer, John Speed. The plates for Speed’s maps were engraved by Jodocus Honius, a great Dutch mapmaker, in 1610. These maps are highly sought after for their beautiful accuracy, detailing, and embellishments. This map of Breknokeshire is one of the finest available of the county, exhibiting the true variety of the region with mountains, hills, and rivers. Hondius filled this map with elaborate cartouches for his presentation of the coats of arms of King Charles II and Wales. The heraldic badge of the Price of Wales is also depicted. The 1676 edition of the map adds the shield of James Butler, 1st Earl of Brecknock and 1st Duke of Ordmonde (1661), which will not be found printed on some earlier maps. An inset of the town of Breknoke graces the upper right corner. The plan is embellished with the town’s coat of arms and an elegant compass rose. The town is most known for being a part of the thirteen historic counties in Wales. The plan depicts an older royal Castle, and one of the only towns hosting a College. The other significant roads and buildings are marked with a letter, to be used with the corresponding key. It is also worth mentioning that this town was mapped by Speed himself, as indicated by his signature ‘Scale of Pases’. A highly desirable aspect of the maps are their vignettes depicting important battles and events of Britain. The moment captured on the map of Breknoke shows the fight in Bluit involving the death of Leolin, the last reigning Prince of Brittany, and Roger Strongbow, who hath slain him, in 1282. The county maps found in the Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine were the first consistent attempt to show territorial divisions, but it was mainly Speed’s town plans that were the major innovation and probably his greatest contribution to British cartography. Together, they formed the first printed collection of town plans of the British Isles and, for at least 50 of the 73 included in the Theatre, it was the first time these towns had been mapped.

        Cambridgeshire described with the division of the hundreds'

      London: John Sudbury & George Humble 1676 - London: John Sudbury & George Humble. Speed, John (1552-1629) Single sheet (15 x 20 inches, full margins showing the plate mark, two repaired tears on bottom margin an inch either side of the crease line, condition commensurate with age). An appealing uncolored engraved map of Cambridge, stretching the border with Huntingdonshire in the west to Suffolk in the east. There is an expanded plan of the historic university town of Cambridge in the North West. The map was printed as part of Speeds revered atlas, 'Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine'. The map was part of the earliest English attempt at producing an atlas on a grand scale as part of 'The Theatre of the Empire of Great Britain', the work for which Speed is best known. This celebrated Atlas contained the first set of county maps consistently attempting to show the boundaries of territorial divisions and the first truly comprehensive set of English town plans-a notable contribution to British topography. After 15 years assembling the Atlas it was published to immediate success: three new editions and issues appeared during Speed's lifetime and the work remained popular into the eighteenth century. Indeed the maps of this Atlas remain one of the most popular with map collectors around the world. John Speed was born in the Cheshire village of Farndon and from his youth pursued his father's profession of tailoring. He later moved to London to continue this trade, though Speed's real passions lay elsewhere, namely in the fields of antiquity and cartography. He joined the Society of Antiquaries where his enthusiasm soon attracted the attention of notables such as William Camden and Sir Fulke Greville. In 1596 Greville provided Speed with a full time allowance to write a 'Historie of Great Britaine'. It was during this project that Speed decided to add a cartographic supplement to the work and it was from this that his famous atlas, 'The Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine', was born. The individual maps are the best known and among the most sought-after of all county maps. The map of Cambridge was particularly desirable as shown by the fact it was one of the few county maps selected to be printed as individual sheets as well as part of Atlas. The maps themselves were derived from the best and most up- to-date sources available. However, Speed also made innovations of his own - introducing town plans such as the one of Cambridge seen on this map. This map is also decorated with two vignettes of scholars of the university as well as the coats of arms of the colleges of Cambridge University and local nobles. Also included is a decorative strap-work title cartouche astride the royal coat of arms surrounded by a lion and unicorn. The overall effect is to produce very decorative, attractive and informative map. Description prepared for Arader Galleries by Jack Rogers (Eton College, Oxford University Geography Undergraduate)

Important epithets are given, such as 'Bellus Clericus' (Beauclerc) for Henry I, and 'Cor Leonis' (Lionheart) for Richard I, shown with a lion at his feet and a bolt in his shoulder. Beer (1638-1712) was something of an expert on European monarchs, also publishing works on the rulers of Austria, Hungary, Spain, Denmark, and Sweden. BL German 1601-1700, B613; VD17 23:312763A.

        ORNITHOLOGIAE LIBRI TRES.

      London JOHN MARTYN 1676 - First edition. Folio (36.3 x 22.5 cm.), 2 folding letterpress tables, 77 engraved plates, lacking initial imprimatur leaf, browning to text leaves, title-leaf slightly frayed at fore-edge and with very small hole in centre, three plates with tears repaired, later vellum with arms tooled in blind on covers, a good example. "The Ornithologiæ libri tres (referred to as the Ornithology) is one of the first truly scientific ornithological texts. It was published four years after the death of Francis Willughby (1635–1672) by his friend and collaborator John Ray (1627–1705). These two natural historians had met at Trinity College Cambridge in the 1650s and spent time travelling around Britain and Europe collecting and observing nature. Previous works concerning birds typically contained information gleaned from earlier sources such as Aristotle and Pliny with extra comments by the author. These works would usually describe the birds, where they might be found, whether they were edible, if they had any medicinal value, and what their human traits and characteristics were (for example Wrens are viewed as brave while Finches are dim-witted). It was also not uncommon to find mythical and fabled birds such as the phoenix and griffin amongst the pages of such works. As the study of natural history progressed the standards of ornithological works improved but they still lacked sensible and coherent organisation. Birds tended to be grouped together by habitat and then by their actions. Walter Charleton's (1619–1707) system, explained in his Onomasticon zoicon (London, 1668), involved looking at the birds' diets, whether they bathed (and in what water/sand) or sang. The way birds were ordered changed with the publication of the Ornithology. Firstly, they are classed here as land or water birds. The land birds are then divided into those with crooked beaks and claws and then those with straight beaks. The water birds are divided into those 'that wade in the waters, or frequent watery places, but swim not; The second, such as are of a middle nature between swimmers and waders, or rather that partake of both kinds, some whereof are cloven-footed, and yet swim; others whole-footed, but yet very long-leg'd like the waders: The third is of whole-footed, or fin-toed Birds, that swim in the water'. This is thought to be the first attempt to rationally classify birds. The 77 illustrations contained in the Ornithology come from various sources. Some are copies made from the collection of pictures and specimens owned by Willughby, others Ray had commissioned. The quality of the illustrations varies greatly; some are very lifelike and easily identified while others are not. Many of the birds have unusual postures for their species while those drawn from specimens (dead or alive) tend to be the more accurate. Ray himself puts the lack of quality down to the fact that he was unable to fully oversee the engravers' work as he was away from London and had to send instructions by letter. The illustrations credited to Thomas Browne (1605–1682) are of the best quality. These are thought to include the illustrations of the Shearwater, Little Auk, Razorbill, and Great Northern Diver" (Dawn Moutrey, University of Cambridge, Whipple Library). Anker 532 (variant); Nissen IVB 991; Wing W2879 (with title-page variant recorded as ESTC R471002). [Attributes: First Edition]

        Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine: York Shire.

      London: Bassett & Chiswell 1676 - Single sheet (15 x 20 inches) Full margins showing the plate mark (small quarter inch tear on lower left, slight edge browning). An elegant map depicting the royal county of Yorkshire, including part of Westmore Land, Lancashire, Lincolneshire, and the Germain Ocean (today's North Sea). The map was printed from copper plates engraved by Jodocus Hondius in his workshop in Amsterdam in 1610. The upper right-hand corner of this map bares a detailed coat of arms used by King Charles the First. As King, Charles bore the royal arms undifferenced: quarterly, I and IV grand-quarterly: azure three fleurs-de-lis Or (for France) and Gules three lions passant guardant in pale Or (for England); II Or a lion rampant within a tressure flory-counter-flory Gules (for Scotland); III Azure a harp Or stringed Argent (for Ireland). The compass rose alongside it provides us with another striking example of Hondius' detailed aesthetic. "Performed by John Speede and are to be sold by Thomas Bassett in Fleet Street and by Richard Chiswell in St. Paul's Churchyard". The county maps found in the Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine were the first consistent attempt to show territorial divisions, but it was mainly Speed's town plans that were the major innovation and probably his greatest contribution to British cartography. Together, they formed the first printed collection of town plans of the British Isles and, for at least 50 of the 73 included in the Theatre, it was the first time these towns had been mapped. While being the first English atlas of the British Isles, Speed's Atlas was also one of the first attempts to accurately survey Ireland and to incorporate a comprehensive list of their town plans into the maps. Born in Cheshire, John Speed developed his interest in maps in the 1580s, after moving to London to pursue his passions outside of tailoring. He there joined the Society of Antiquaries, where his enthusiasm for cartography won him the attention of William Camden, Robert Cotton, and Sir Fulke Greville. By working with these figures, Speed was able to do a large amount of research for his own work. In 1596, Greville bequeathed Speed with an unlimited allowance to research, and then later write, the Historie of Great Britaine. It was during this project which Speed had the encouragement to add a cartographic supplement to the work - what we today know as his most famous atlas. After being first published in 1611-1612, the 'Theatre of Great Britain' dominated the seventeenth-century English map market, going through many reprints and editions. Thanks to the Atlas' success, Speed earned the title of England's most well-known Stuart period cartographer and his work became the blueprint for folio atlases until the mid-18th century. Historically, Speed is also noted for placing England into the mainstream of map publishing, which had been dominated by the Dutch since the late sixteenth century. This map of Yorkshire is an excellent part of the Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine, and would be an outstanding slice of history to add to every map collection. The 1676 edition of Speed's atlas never came with original color. The examples of our map of Yorkshire should always be uncolored and never colored. For more information on this map, or a warm welcome to see other maps and books of our collection at 72nd Street NYC, please contact Natalie Zadrozna.
