A very good copy. Joseph Hall (15741656), eminent prelate and author, was educated at Emmanuel College, Cambridge, and became bishop of Exeter, (162741), and of Norwich, (164147). The rise of Puritanism involved him in serious church difficulties, and his vigorous defence of the episcopacy against its attackers resulted in his imprisonment in 1641 on charges of high treason. He was eventually released, but he lived the remainder of his life in poverty. Hall's most notable work, his verse satires, modelled after the Roman satirist Juvenal, appeared in two parts: Virgidemiarum or Toothless Satires (1597) and Biting Satires (1598). He also wrote prose satires, poems, meditations, and autobiographical tracts. Our work was written and published early in his career.

         The Holie Bible faithfully translated into English, out of the authentical Latin.

      Douai: by Laurence Kellam,, 1609–10. Diligently conferred with the Hebrew, Greeke, and other Editions in divers languages. With Arguments of the Bookes, and Chapters: Annotations: Tables: and other helpes, for better understanding of the text: for discoverie of Corruptions in some late translations: and for clearing Controversies in Religion. By the English College of Doway. 2 volumes, quarto (210 x 160 mm). Contemporary limp vellum, recased on new tawed leather slips, new leather ties, new endleaves, old flyleaves preserved. Housed in a black cloth flat-back box by the Chelsea Bindery. Early ink signature at the foot of the title "And[rew] Cross his Booke" and heavily deleted inscription in the centre "Thomas Parry de [?Roylage] / Ex dono Maria Cross [–]". Titles and last few pages a little dusty, occasional small marks, minor worming in the fore-margin of Vol. II in places, a few neat paper repairs to the extremities at front and back, overall a very good copy. First edition of the Old Testament in the English Catholic version. In 1578 the Roman Catholic priest Gregory Martin (1542?–1582), recently recalled from Rome to the English College at Rheims (itself newly transferred from Douai), "embarked on an English translation of the Bible. [Cardinal] Allen announced the project in September 1578. He, Richard Bristow, and William Reynolds were involved primarily as revisers: the work was Martin's. Between September 1578 and July 1580 Martin translated the entire Vulgate. The New Testament of Iesus Christ with Bristow's notes was published at Rheims in 1582. For financial reasons ("our poore estate in banishment") the Old Testament did not appear until the two volumes of The Holie Bible were published at Douai in 1609–10. The appearance of a Catholic Bible in English undermined traditional protestant criticism that the Roman church kept scripture out of the hands of the laity. Instead protestant theologians such as Thomas Cartwright, William Whitaker, and William Fulke attacked the credentials of the translators and denounced their work as filled with error. Despite such criticism, revised versions of Martin's translation remained extremely popular throughout the English-speaking world for nearly four hundred years" (ODNB).

         Le Fortificationi, … con l’aggiunta del sesto libro. Doue si mostra con la Scienza, e con la Pratica, l’ordine di Fortificare le CittÃ, .

      Francesco Rampazetto, 1609., Venice: - Two parts in one. Folio. Collation: a6, A4, B2, C8, D2, E6, F2, G-H2, I8, K6, L4, M-P8, Q6, R8, S6, T-Aa8, Bb4. Pagination: [12], 303, [1] pp. Includes title page for book six (first added in this edition). Engraved portrait of the author by W. Kilian, numerous large and small woodcuts and diagrams in text, decorated initials. Contemporary vellum, minor stains, title to head of spine in old ink. Inner front hinge opened at top. Few pages with slight toning, some foxing, small tape repair to last leaf (register), otherwise a very nice copy. EARLY WORK ON CONSTRUCTING FORTIFICATIONS. Second, enlarged edition (with additional sixth book and added illustrations). “Lorini’s work is the first systematic course of instruction in all aspects of military architecture, and the first work to give measured plans it its illustrations” - Breman. “Buonaiuto Lorini (circa 1538- circa 1611), was born in Florence, won a great reputation in the sixteenth century for his intelligent fortifications and the way he fiercely defended cities. He was employed by the kings of France and Spain, and also by the Dodges of Venice. Lorini’s treatise is divided in five books, written in the form of a dialogue with a count (identified as the military man Bestore Martinengo). The present work contains a wealth of practical detail and a long and detailed section on the machine tools of construction. In 1609 Lorini added the sixth book to his work.” -Breman. “Lorini published a treatise, Delle Fortificationi, which outlined the expectations of a good working design. It centers around the problem of determining which plans succeed, and what qualifications of an engineer are requisite. Design, Lorini suggests, is necessary to all arts, but especially to command. Lorini conceives of design as a process, which allows one to represent both concepts and things as they really are. Design is especially valuable because of concepts and things, invention and nature, can interact together on the simple piece of paper. While this may be a specific interpretation of the role of the architect, Lorini highlights here the importance of clarifying one’s invention through design.” â€" Wolfgang Lefevre, Picturing Machines, 1400-1700, MIT Press, Cambridge, (2004). Book I: That fortification is a science and lays out basic principles and terminology. Book II: The practical construction of works, including bridges, gates, walls, and how to arm them. Book III: Overview of the most significant fortification methods in use to date. Book IIII: Explaining how to adapt planned fortifications according to their situation and renovate old defensive works. Book V: Dedicated to machines of construction, describing and illustrating hoists, and tackle, water-raising engine, dredger for draining swamps, ropes, diving bell for subterranean work, mills, folding ladders, and pontoon bridges. Book VI: Lorini’s own experiences in the field, sieges, practical problems, portable fences, likely trajectory of cannon balls, making artillery mobile and protection. “Palmanova and Valletta [both Italian fortified cities] sprang from experiments, though none was as thorough or as spectacular. …the fortress-city must be understood as a development of the geometrically previse citadel, integrating the planned town and the protective fortresses into a single body. Though the four- or five- bastioned citadel is often the prototype, the history of influence is a short one: citadels and fortress-cities are developed almost synchronously and probably owe much to one another. For example, the radial fortress-city designed by Lorini, with its nine bastions and concentric ring roads linking the radial streets that converge on the central square, unmistakingly approximates the realized design of Palmanova.” â€" Pollack, p. 163.

         Plaidoyez de Mre. Simon Marion, Baron de Druy, cy-devant Advocat en Parlement ;. Reveuz, corrigez & augmentez, outre les precedentes impressions.

      Paris, Sonnius, 1609. - in-8, 12ff.n.ch.- 591pp. Reliure de l'époque vélin ivoire souple. Marion Simon fut "le seul grand légiste que le Nivernais eut possédé au XVI°s., car il a conseillé les princes". Ce fils de notaire naquit à Nevers en 1540. Conseiller au Parlement, il ?uvra à l'établissement des frontières d'Artois et des possessions espagnoles dans les Flandres. Le cardinal Du Perron a dit "qu'il avait le don de persuader en discourant et n'émouvait pas moins lorsqu'il écrivait. Depuis Cicéron, il n'y a pas eu d'autres avocats que lui.". Il prit fermement position contre les jésuites. Marion fut le beau-père d'Antoine Arnauld, et c'est lui qui obtint d'Henry IV l'abbaye de Port-royal pour la Mère Angélique. - Les quatre premiers plaidoyers de ce recueil ont pour sujet les livres et l'imprimerie : "Sur l'impression du Droict Canon" ; "Sur l'impression des ?uvres de Sénèque, reveües & annotées par feu Marc Antoine Muret" ; "Sur l'impression des messels, Breviaires, Heures & Iournaux, réformez selon le Concile de Trente" ; ou encore "Pour l'immunité des Livres". Dans ce dernier, Simon Marion fait l'éloge de l'écriture et de l'imprimerie. (Guy Coquille et les auteurs nivernais, Soc. Acad. du Nivernais, p. 56 - Guéneau p. 120). - Mouillures et macules, coutures très distendues, quelques feuillets pratiquement déreliés.

         Le Galatee, premierement composé en Italien . & depuis mis en François, Latin, Allemand, & Espagnol . Geneva [i.e. Lyon], par Jean de Tournes,

      1609 - Woodcut printer's device on title-page. 16mo (117 x 80mm) [8]ff 619pp [2]ff (blank). 17th century vellum. De Tournes had published a polyglot edition of this classic courtesy book in 1598 but without the German version found here. In this edition we have a French version printed in civilité type, a German version in gothic type, a Spanish version in roman type and an Italian version in italic type, printed in four columns across a double page with a Latin version in roman type printed at the bottom.Il Galateo was, after Castiglione's Il Cortegiano, the most influential of Italian books on behaviour.

         Gods Arrow Against Atheists.

      Imprinted by F[elix].K[ingston] for Thomas Pauier,, London: 1609 - Collation: A-F8, G4. Pagination: [4], 12, 9-96p. Rebacked modern calf, gilt borders to bands, red title label, over new marbled boards. New endpapers. Corners slightly rounded, minor soiling and some light dampstains to outer margins, title with contemporary ink note ?AB? at inner margin. Lacks blanks. Overall, a nice copy of a scarce work. ?This work by Henry Smith (1550-1591) is a gem. However, Henry Smith is little known. Smith?s works are comprehensively outstanding. He lived only a short time (dying at the age of 41, although some documentation exists showing he may have died at 51). He was a second generation reformer and a precursor to Puritanism. he fills a gap in his lifetime of rubbing shoulders with the fathers of puritanism (men like William Perkins, William Ames and Thomas Cratwright, as well as his mentor Richard Greenham. In his day he was known as a powerful preacher - the ?prime preacher of the nation? This particular book was one of Smiths most popular works, and went through dozens of editions and reprints during his lifetime (his sermons in general had gone through eighty-five editions by 1620). Gods Arrow focuses on utterly destroying paganism, Islam and Roman Catholicism, with an exhortation to unite Christ?s church in the truth rather than divide it.? [-McMahon, editor, preface to Gods Arrow Against Atheists, 2012].?His (Smith) preaching brought him such fame that he was known as ?silver-tongued-Smith? In Gods Arrow Against Atheists he not only attacks Muslims but other opponents of the Christianity of the Church of England, from atheists, infidels throughout the world, and Roman Catholics, to Brownists and Barrowists. His conclusion is that ?the Church of England is the true Church of God from which it is utterly unlawfull to make a separation.? [- Pailin, Attitudes to Other Religions, 1984].STC 22725 mentions that editions of STC 22737 and 22667 are called for in the table of contents of ?The Sermons of Master Henry Smith? (1604). Because different publishers held the copyright of each book, editions were not often printed simultaneously. Therefore (like our edition), each book is treated as a separate entity.

         World and Four Continents]

      [Jan Baptist Vrients, Antwerp, 1609] - Copper engraved with hand colour Each map approx. 80 x 120 mm A beautiful set of five miniature maps, depicting the world and four continents, from a Latin edition of the third Epitome of Ortelius' Theatrum. The third Epitome, based on the earlier two editions by Philip Galle, included a new set of miniature maps, all of which were engraved by the brothers Arsenius, with accompanying text by Michael Coignet. Numerous editions in Latin, German, French, Italian, and English were published by the leading printers of the day, including Jan Keerbergen, Jan Baptist Vrients, and Michael Coignet, all in Antwerp, as well as James Shawe in London, and Levinus Hulsius in Frankfurt. The current examples derive from the 1609 Vrients printing. Typus Orbis Terrarum: Unlike earlier Galle editions of the Epitome, which featured a reduced version of Ortelius' elliptical world map, the Arsenius plate is the first miniature map on Mercator's projection to be published in an atlas. The limits of each continent are outlined in hand colour, and key regions are charted. The large expanse of North America features a note attributing its discovery to Columbus in 1492. Five key cities, Mexico, Paria, Jerusalem, Calcutta, and Quinzai (Hangzhou) are picked out in red, as is the Great Wall of China, to the north and west of Quinzai. To the south, the massive, and largely hypothetical landmass of Terra Australis is divided into the regions of Nova Guinea, Tierra del Fuego, Psittacorum regio (Kingdom of Parrots), and Beach (Locach). The map is further embellished with a strapwork title cartouche, a large sailing ship in the Pacific, a sea monster in the Indian ocean, and a border showing degrees of longitude and latitude. Europa: Europe, with adjoining parts of Asia and Africa, the boundaries of each continent outlined in hand colour. Principal cities are picked out in red. The map is further embellished with a strapwork title cartouche in the top left corner, three animals in the Eastern steppes of Moscovy, Prussia, and Hungaria, the hand coloured range of the Alps dividing Hispania and Gallia, and a border showing degrees of longitude and latitude. Asia: The continent of Asia, with adjoining sections of Europe and Africa, the boundaries of each continent outlined in hand colour. Principal cities, including Jerusalem, Mecca, Aden, Samarkand, Ormus, Bengal, Goa, and Quinzai (Hangzhou) are picked out in red. Surrounding Hangzhou, the Great Wall of China is shown pictorially and also coloured in red. Korea is depicted correctly as a peninsula, though the mapping of Japan is very rudimentary. In the bottom right corner, a large landmass is labelled as New Guinea. The map is further embellished with a strapwork title cartouche at bottom centre, a pair of camels and an Indian elephant in the centre of the continent, and a border showing degrees of longitude and latitude. Africa: Africa, with neighbouring parts of the Arabian peninsula and the southern tip of Spain, the boundaries of each outlined in hand colour. Principal cities, including Morocco, Tripoli, Alexandria, Cairo, Mozambique, Mina, and Sierra Leone are picked out in red. The continent itself is effectively divided into three large islands by the hypothesised course of the Nile. East Africa, labelled Abyssinia, features a note about the mythical patriarch and king, Prester John. The atlas mountains are washed in hand colour, and two red bands running across the map indicate the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn. Off the east coast, Madagascar is labelled as San Lorenzo, and off the west coast, the Canary islands, the Cape Verde islands, and the easternmost tip of South America can be seen. The map is further embellished with a strapwork title cartouche in the bottom right corner, three sailing vessels, in the Atlantic, India Ocean, and Cape of Good Hope, and a border showing degrees of longitude and latitude. America: North and South America, as well as the massive supercontinent of Terra Australis, base [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         Catechesis Ecclesiarum: Quae in Regno Poloniae, & magno ducatu Lithuaniae, & aliis ad istud regnum pertinentibus provinciis, affirmant.

      Racoviae, Racoviae 1609 - [xxiv] 279p pagination jumps from 167 to 186, original plain full calf binding with gilt rule to boards, small loss to top and bottom of spine, library stamp to verso of title page, also "withdrawn" in red ink, initial index over several pages printed in the form of a table, old bookseller's label (J Leslie) to front, old Latin manuscript notes in legible fine hand to two empty pages at end, a very uncommon title. This is the first Latin translation of the Racovian Catechism, of Socinian, Polish Brethren interest. Thomas Jefferson referred to the text of the Catechism as one of the sources of the US Constitution and the UNESCO has listed it as one of the most important works in the history of mankind. The title was first published in the city of Rakow. The city with 15.000 inhabitants was razed in the course of the Catholic counter-reformation in Poland. In 1608 a German translation appeared. A year later this Latin translation, dedicated to King James 1, was published with a ficticious imprint. Because of the non-trinitarian stance of the catechism, the English Parliament voted in 1614 and again in 1652 to seize and burn all copies circulating. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         TRACTAET VAN 'T BESTANT, GHEMAECKT ENDE BESLOTEN BINNEN DE STADT ENDE CITE VAN ANTWERPEN, DEN NEGENSTEN APRILIS 1609

      The Hague: Hillebrant Iacobz, 1609. [11]pp. Large vignette on titlepage. Modern marbled boards. Very good. The original edition of the official Dutch text of the "Twelve Years' Truce" between the United Provinces and Spain. There are thirty-eight articles, of which nine deal with foreign trade. The present issue, undoubtedly the first, contains a few errors which were corrected in later issues. By this treaty the Dutch agreed to stay out of Spanish controlled possessions in the New World. However, it conceded the right of the Dutch to trade in the East Indies, and on the basis of this and the breathing room the treaty gave them, they were able to rout the Spanish in the 1620s. Savelle calls the Twelve Years' Truce "a great international triumph for all the challengers of the Hispano-Portuguese monopoly" on New World colonization, since it marked the first explicit recognition of the right of any non-Iberian people to sail to the Americas. Spain tacitly recognized the right of the Dutch to own colonies in the New World, a right which the Dutch, French, and British vigorously pursued in the ensuing decades. An important treaty and quite scarce. OCLC locates three copies. Not in EUROPEAN AMERICANA. DAVENPORT 28. KNUTTEL 1589. SAVELLE, THE ORIGINS OF AMERICAN DIPLOMACY, pp.31-34. OCLC 8525118, 17751928.

      Augsburg, David Franck, 1609. - 4°, circa 20 x 16 cm. 4 Bll., 367 SS., 11 (1 w.) Bll., 2 gefaltete Tafeln, mehrere Holzschnitte im Text Pergament d. Zt. "Poggendorff I, 1064; Zinner, Astronomie 4231. Erste Ausgabe mit dem griechischen Text des Proklos, paralleler lateinischer Übersetzung und reichem Kommentar sowie weiteren Beigaben zur Kalenderberechnung und anderen meteorologischen und astronomischen Fragen. "Henisch gehört zu dem weit über Augsburg hinaus wirkenden Späthumanistenkreis an der Wende vom 16. zum 17. Jahrhundert. (er) war der Mathematiker und Naturwissenschaftler, aber auch der Germanist dieses Kreises, eine tolerante Natur, deren freundschaftliche Bande wie wissenschaftliche Verbindungen von den Jesuiten vornehmlich in Augsburg, München und Dillingen bis zu katholisch und protestantisch Gelehrten in Deutschland, Frankreich, Italien und den Niederlanden reichten. In der Kaufmannsstadt Augsburg war der Humanismus wesentlich auf praktische Erkenntnisse und Ergebnisse gerichtet. Henisch kam den Wünschen des nüchternen, rechnenden und zählenden Bürgertums entgegen. Seine Schriften tragen einen stark rationalen Zug, sein Geist drängte zu klarer Begriffsbildung und zu vernünftigen Methoden. Das Studium der Himmelskörper und des Firmaments beschäftigte ihn sein Leben lang. Jährlich lieferte er einen mathematischastronomischen Kalender und veröffentlichte einen Kommentar zu Proklus." (NDB VIII, 524). - Exemplar mit EIGENHÄNDIGER WIDMUNG von Henisch an Conrad Pius Peutinger (1520?1613), den Sohn des bedeutenden Augsburger Humanisten: "Clarissimo viro D. Conrado Pio Peutingero I. V. D. ac advocato Reip. AUG. dd. autor". Das Buch kam danach in das Klost von Ulrich und Afra, auf dem Titel findt sich oben ein entsprechender Eintrag und auf dem Vorsatz ist das schöne gestochene Exlibris des Klosters. Wohl nach der Säkularisation kam das Buch in die Königliche Kreisbibliothek (Stempel des 19. Jh. auf dem Titel) und wurde dort dann ausgeschieden. " "- Kaum gebräunt, meist sauber, wenig berieben, ohne Bindebänder. Schönes Exemplar mit bedeutender Provenienz. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
