         The theorike and practike of moderne warres, discoursed in dialogue wise.

      London: printed by Peter Short,, 1600. Wherein is declared the neglect of martiall discipline: the inconvenience thereof: the imperfections of manie training captaines: a redresse by due regard had: the fittest weapons for our modern warre: the use of the same: the parts of a perfect souldier in generall and in particular: the officers in degrees, with their severall duties: the imbattailing of men in formes now most in use: with figures and tables to the same: with sundrie other martiall points. Comprehended in sixe bookes. London: printed [by Richard Field] for William Ponsonby, 1598; [bound after:] EDMONDES, Sir Clement. Observations, upon the five first bookes of Caesars Commentaries, setting fourth the practise of the art military, in the time of the Roman Empire. Wherein are handled all the chiefest points of their discipline, with the true reasons of every part, together with such instructions as may be drawn from their proceedings, for the better direction of our moderne warres. 2 works bound in 1, folio (281 x 184 mm). Contemporary limp vellum, spine lettered in manuscript, lacks ties. Barret: woodcut vignette to title, full-page woodcut arms of dedicatee on title verso, woodcut diagrams in text, leaf O1 (a singleton) is a folded diagram, full-page woodcut arms of author on last leaf verso (Y6v). Edmondes: 6 engraved plates (4 double-page). With 19th-century ownership inscriptions ("Mr R. Thomas, from Mr. Wm. Owen his cousin, North Wales" and "R. G. Thomas 1842, from his mother") and later ownership inscriptions of Spencer John Skipper, a South Australian-born journalist, and his eldest son Herbert Stanley Skipper (1880–1962), solicitor and promoter of libraries, all to the front pastedown. Barret diagram on F6v just shaved at fore edge margin; Edmondes first plate just shaved at fore edges, third plate with small loss of border at foot; these minor flaws consequent to the folding plates being bound in and trimmed as double-page. Vellum a little short at foot and likely re-cased at an early date, front joint split at head, small repair to fore edge of front cover, slight fraying to first two leaves of Edmondes, small dampstain at foot, lower third of folding leaf O1 in Barret skilfully reattached, a few minor marks and spill-burns, still a very good copy. First editions of two of the most authoritative of the military treatises issued in the period. At a time when England had largely been isolated from developments elsewhere, Barret derived his authority from "having spent the most part of my time in the profession of Armes, and that among forraine nations, as the French, the Dutch, the Italian, and Spaniard". His book, dedicated to Henry Herbert, earl of Pembroke, and his son William, later the co-dedicatee of the 1623 Shakespeare first folio, is finely printed by Shakespeare's Stratford schoolfellow Richard Field. The downfall of Shakespeare's Parolles in All's Well that Ends Well ("the gallant militarist … that had the whole theoricke of warre in the knot of his scarfe, and the practise in the chape of his dagger" – IV, iii) may be an echo of the book's title. Edmondes's work is a commentary on books 1–5 of Julius Caesar's Gallic Wars, together with an abridged translation of the books. "Edmondes explained that the work was directed at English soldiers and he supplemented his comments on Roman military practice with observations on contemporary campaigns, including those of the English forces in France and the war in Ireland, as well as the battle of Dreux of 1562 between the royal army and protestant forces in France. He also discussed the question of how to deal with an invasion of England, whether to oppose an invading army at the coast or to withdraw and offer battle later. His preference was to fortify the coast of Kent and oppose a landing. As well as military matters, he included an explanation of the causes of tides" (ODNB).

         Aphrica

      Johan Bussemecher excudit in Ubiorum Coloniae. Q. [Cologne, c.1600] - Copper engraved 210 x 290 mm An attractive quarto map of the continent of Africa, engraved by Johann Bussemacher for Quad's Geographisch Handtbuch. The continent is highly detailed, with numerous place names listed, and with rivers, mountains, and principal cities depicted pictorially. To the east, the Arabian peninsula is shown in full, as is Madagascar and the islands of the Indian Ocean. North, across the Mediterranean, the southernmost parts of Cyprus, Turkey, Greece, Sicily, Italy, Sardinia, and Spain can be seen, and off the west coast, the Atlantic islands, including the Canaries, the Cape Verde islands, and Tristan de Cunha are plotted. The map is further embellished by a large and decorative circular strapwork cartouche enclosing the title. On the left side of the plate, an extensive Latin description of the history and geography of the continent of Africa reads vertically. Matthias Quad (1557-1613) was a Dutch-German cartographer, geographer, author, engraver, and publisher. Born in the Netherlands, Quad was one of a number of leading lights in the mapmaking community of Cologne at the turn of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Aside from working as an engraver for Braun and Hogenberg's Civitates Orbis Terrarum, Quad also partnered with Johann Bussemacher in the production of a number of smaller scale atlases, inspired by the success of Ortelius' Theatrum Orbis Terrarum. The first, an atlas of Europe, was published in 1594. This was later expanded into the Geographisch Handtbuch of 1600, and finally the Fasciculus Geographicus in 1608. Johann Bussemacher (fl.1580-1613) was a German publisher, printer, art dealer, and engraver, active in Cologne at the turn of the sixteenth and seventeenth century. His is best remembered for a series of engravings of the Labours of Hercules after Aldegrever, and for preparing many of the map plates for three atlases he co-published with Matthias Quad. Condition: Strong impression with full margins. Central vertical fold as issued. Printers creases and general light creasing to sheet, particularly through text description at left and margin at right. Minor time toning and damp staining to edges of sheet, not affecting map.

         Sopra il Crescer del Fiume Nilo]

      [In Venetia nella Stamperia de Giunti. L'Anno M D LXIII] - Woodcut 222 x 145 mm A rare and interesting map of Africa, showing the course of the Nile, from Ramusio's Della descrittione dell'Africa et delle cose notabili che iui sono. The map is oriented with south to top, and shows almost the continent of Africa from the Tropic of Capricorn to the North African coast. The Cape of Good Hope and Guinea are not pictured, though the Arabian peninsula and Madagascar are both featured, the latter labelled here as San Lorenzo, an italicism of the island's original Portuguese name, St Lawrence. The Nile is given the most prominence, from its putative sources in two great lakes in the interior marked as the 'Fonti del Nilo' to the Mediterranean Delta at Damietta. Principal cities, including Cairo, Memphis (with its pyramids), Alexandria, Suez, Mecca, and Aden, are depicted pictorially, and the continent is criss-crossed by a number of exaggerated mountain ranges. Below the map, an alphanumeric key, augmented by a number of zodiacal symbols on the map itself, shows the position of various star-signs relative to the Tropics and Equator. 'Della descrittione dell'Africa et delle cose notabili che iui sono' was part of the large series of travellers' accounts and pilgrim tales published by Giovanni Battista Ramusio under the title 'Delle navigationi e Viaggi.' The series was one of the most influential works of the sixteenth century, and was widely published, copied, and pirated across Europe, in numerous different languages. Ramusio's work was largely an amalgam of existing travel narratives, including those of Marco Polo, Magellan, Tome Pires, and de Vaca. The section often referred to as the 'Description of Africa' was an Italian translation of a mostly firsthand account dictated in Arabic by the traveller, merchant, and Christian convert, Leo Africanus. Leo's experiences as a slave under capture by the Barbary pirates represented one of the first accounts of the North African coast available to European readers at a time when the West was increasingly coming into contact and conflict with the Ottoman east. The English translation of the Description, published by John Pory in 1600, has been suggested as a potential source of inspiration for Shakespeare's Othello. Giovanni Battista Ramusio (1485-1557) was an Italian geographer, translator, author, and publisher. He is best known for the large series of traveller's accounts that he compiled, translated, and published as the Delle navigationi e Viaggi. The first volumes appeared during the 1550s, and were republished, added to, and translated into other languages throughout the second half of the sixteenth century. Condition: Creases to bottom left corner of sheet, not affecting map. Italian text on verso.

         Madonna della scodella

      The Madonna, seated with the infant Christ on her lap, holds a bowl for the infant Baptist to drink from; S. Anne watches from behind with a hand raised. The preparatory drawing is at the Louvre (ex coll. Mariette, Inv. 7142). First engraving realized by Annibale Carracci after 1600, showing the signs of a renewed approach to engraving. Remarkable is in fact the strong chiaroscuro, emphasized by the hatched background against which are disposed the sculpted figures. Although the figures are engaged in simple and natural activities, the composition is carefully studied and masterfully engraved with regular hatchings and signs. This composition became immediately highly popular as its numerous copies testify (seventeen are documented). From the second state the name of the publisher was added, Nicolaes van Aelst, publisher active in Brussels and Rome. In the latter city he had a workshop in via della Pace from 1582 to 1613. Three states of this print are documented, however the exemplar at the Museum in Bologna (Inv. 4730) is suggested to be a fourth state. Signed above right: 'Annib. Carracius in./ et fecit. 1606./ Nico van Aelst for.' Etching and engraving on laid paper with a vague circular watermark, small margins; platemark: 123 x 161 mm, total: 125 x 163 mm; state III/3 (or III/4); warn out plate on the corners; on the verso cifres in characoal, top right and left corner restored, lower left margin also; selected literature: Bartsch (1818), XVIII vol., p.186, n. 9; Le Blanc (1854), p. 606, n. 6; Nagler (1858) p. 458, n. 1053; The Illustrated Bartsch (1980), p. 395, 9-I (186) and (1996), 39 (2 Comm.), p. 256,n. 3906.020
