RARE FIRST EDITION OF RALEIGH'S MASSIVE WORK AND A CORNERSTONE WORK IN HISTORIOGRAPHY. ONE OF THE GREAT BOOKS PRINTED IN ENGLAND AT THE BEGINNING OF THE 1600's. This is the only volume published of the massive history Raleigh planned and began while in the Tower of London after the accession of James I. This is the earlier of the two editions having the colophon dated 1614, with the errata uncorrected. It was rigidly suppressed by order of King James I, but nevertheless passed through several editions. The engraved title was not issued with the second edition, which appeared in 1617, a printed title having a portrait of Raleigh taking its place. A reissue of the second edition appeared in 1621, and later editions in 1624, 1628, 1666, and 1684, 1687 and throughout the 18th century. This is the only volume published of the massive history Raleigh planned and began while in the Tower of London after the accession of James I. It was rigidly suppressed by order of King James I, but nevertheless passed through several editions. While most of his prose works up to then had been written fro private circulation[...] the HISTORY was intended for publication to a wide audience. Raleigh began writing it about 1607, the work was entered in the Stationers' register in 1611 and appeared towards the end of 1614. The preface was suppressed by George Abbot, archbishop of Canterbury, on 22 December and copies were seized by the kings' agents for this own use. According to Chamberlain the suppression came about because it was "too sawcie in censuring princes" [...] The suppression order was soon lifted and the History was reprinted in 1617. It remained popular: there were at least eleven editions in the seventeenth century, one in the eighteenth, and one in the nineteenth. Raleigh was one of the principal figures of the English Renaissance. As well as being a poet of wide repute and a successful soldier, he was one of the earliest explorers of the New World (one of its cities still bears his name). This ambitious book, which Raleigh worked on with the help of several assistants, ostensibly deals with Greek, Egyptian, and biblical history up to 168 B.C., but the preface summarizes modern European history and represents one of the earliest English views of the world and its history. It has become a classic of English Renassaince literature. The History is described as "The first part of the general history of the world", implying, as Ralegh said, that other parts were to come. This, he admitted, was his intention and indeed he had "hewn them out". What exists is a substantial work, of about a million words, in five books, running from the creation of the world to 146 B.C., the time of the second Macedonian war. The first two books are principally, though not wholly, concerned with biblical history, the last three mainly with the story of Greece and Rome. In the first two, God's judgments are seen as the central determinants of events; in the latter three the role of man is more evident. History is regarded as moral exemplum, a classical concept appropriate ot the treatment of ancient history but unusual for the subsequent discussion of Henry VIII. The juxtaposition of the discussion of Henry with that of James must have registered as ironic with the original readers, especially later when James's "unstained sword of justice" had Ralegh's blood on it. The HISTORY IS FAR MORE THAN A CHRONOLOGY, ITS OPENING CHAPTERS DESCRIBED THE CREATION OF THE WORLD AND ITS NATURE BEFORE RALEGH MOVED TO THE PHILOSOPHICAL PROBLEMS RAISED BY THE CONCEPTS OF PRESCIENCE, PROVIDENCE, FREE WILL AND FORTUNE. He adopted the familiar distinction between first and second causes, God' Will, he later wrote, determined everything [...] yet God works through second causes, "Instruments, Causes and Pipes", which carry his will to the world. The distinction is not clear or unambiguous, but it enabled Ralegh to focus upon human actions. Essentially, he wrote for a purpose, as a man of action: it was, he said, "the end and scope of all History, to teach by example of times past, such wisdom as my guide our desires and actions" (ODNB). perhaps unsurprisingly, given his previous experiences, one of Raleigh's principal themes was 'the general wickedness of kings and the severity of God's judgement upon them [...] The misdeeds of English kings were related in some detail. o Henry VIII Ralegh wrote that "if all the pictures and patterns of a merciless prince were lost in the World, they might again be painted to the life, out of the story of this king" [...] Only one ruler in the entire history of the world receives unstinted and unadulterated praise from Ralegh: Epaminondas of Thebes, with Hannibal as proxime accessit. Although Ralegh believed that history could provide examples and precepts for rulers to follow, its events demonstrated only too clearly that they were unlikely to do so. His book ends with a paean of praise to Death: "Oh eloquent, just and mighty Death! whom none could advise, thou has persuaded; that none has dared, thou hast done; and whom all the world hath flattered, thou only hath cast out of the world and despised: thou hast drawn together all the far stretched greatness, all the pride, cruelty, and ambition of man, and covered it over with these two narrow words, Hic jacet" (loc.cit.) The poem "The Mind of the Front' (i.e. explanation of the allegorical frontispiece) was written by Ben Jonson, who had been tutor to Raleigh's son at the time of the book's production. Raleigh was one of the principal figures of the English Renaissance. As well as being a poet of wide repute and a successful soldier, he was one of the earliest explorers of the New World (one of its cities still bears his name). This ambitious book, which Raleigh worked on with the help of several assistants, ostensibly deals with Greek, Egyptian, and biblical history up to 168 B.C., but the preface summarizes modern European history and represents one of the earliest English views of the world and its history. It has become a classic of English Renaissance literature.

A very good complete copy with an early mention of Shakepeare. John Stow (1524/5-1605), antiquarian and historian was born in London he built up a large library of manuscripts and antiquarian books. The Annales was first published in 1580 with the title Chronicles of England from Brute (the legendary first king of Britain). With the edition of 1605 Stow continued the history to the accession of James I. Our edition augmented and expanded by Edmund Howes reaches 1614. To Stow's brief Appendix on the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge is added a 26 page account of the colleges of London University by Sir George Buck. It is believed that Stow was the first English historian to make systematic use of public records for the purpose of his work and that by this research he did more to advance the study of fifteenth-century England than any other writer of his time. In the emendation by Edmund Howes on page 811 there is a mention of Shakespeare: "Our modern, and present excellent Poets which worthily flourish in their own works, and all of them in my own knowledge lived together in this Queen's reign, according to their priorities as near as I could, I have orderly set down (viz) George Gascoigne Esquire, Thomas Churchyard Esquire, Sir Edward Dyer Knight, Edmund Spencer Esquire, Sir Philip Sidney Knight, Sir John Harrington Knight, Sir Thomas Challoner Knight, Sir Francis Bacon Knight, & Sir John Davie Knight, Master John Lillie gentleman, Master George Chapman gentleman, M.W.

        A True and almost incredible Report of an Englishman,

      1614 - that (being cast away in the good ship called the Assention, in Cambaya, the farthest part of the East Indies) travelled by land through many unknowne Kingdomes, and great Cities. the second impression newly corrected.Second edition. 4to. Full red calf, stamped in gilt & blind, leather label to spine, without blanks A1, K3, & K4, title-page soiled & repaired, with the lower right quarter supplied in facsimile, some light soiling throughout, otherwise a good copy [6], 68pp. London: N.O[kes], for Thomas Archer, The second edition of Coverte's account of the fourth East India Company voyage to the East Indies, following the first edition published in London in 1612. The author was steward on board the Ascension under Capt. Sharpey they left Plymouth with a companion vessel the Union , in March 1607, and, on their voyage south, were among the first Englishmen to see the Cape of Good Hope, arriving there in July 1608. The Ascension having separated from the the Union in a storm reached India, via Madagascar, Pemba Island and Socotra, where the ship ran aground while approaching Surat. Not granted permission to remain in Surat, the crew departed to various destinations. Coverte and others set out for the Moghul Court at Agra, arriving there in December 1609. He and other crew members left Agra in January 1610 ?with the intention of making their way back to the Levant by the overland route. Travelling by way of Kandahar, Esfahan, and Baghdad.they reached Aleppo in December 1610 and from the coast of the Levant sailed for England. They subsequently arrived home in April 1611? (Howgego). An absorbing account presented in the form of a travel diary, Penrose described the work as a ?vigorous narrative.it relates its author's reception by the Emperor Jahangir, and his tedious journey across India, Afghanistan, and Persia, and as such is one of the best examples of a travel journal that the period produced.? As pointed out by Parker ( Books to Build an Empire ) ?This voyage marks the lowest depth to which the company's misfortunes sank in its early years, for the loss of the two ships nearly ruined it financially . during these years of unprededented English travel and trade into the east there was a great dearth of literature describing the voyages of the East India company's ships. between 1608 and 1614 only one book appeared which described England's new-found commerce. An extremely popular travel account, a third London edition appeared in 1631 and German translations were printed in 1617 and 1648. The account was also included in compilations of discovery and exploration published by De Bry, Hulsius, and van der Aa.

        DISSERTATIONES PHILOSOPHICAE. [and] ALCINOUS. IN PLATONICAM PHILOSOPHIAM INTRODUCTIO. [with] HEINSIUS, DANIEL. NOTAE ET EMENDATIONES AD MAXIMUM PHILOSOPHUM

      Lugduni Batavorum [Leyden]: Ioannem Patium [Jan Paets], 1614. Second Edition. This is a collection of 41 dissertations on various philosophical, ethical, and theological topics by the second century Greek rhetorician and philosopher Maximus of Tyre, offered here in a superb binding and with very distinguished provenance. The volume also contains the "Handbook on Platonism" of Maximus' contemporary Alcinous, along with the notes and emendations of the illustrious classical scholar Daniel Heinsius. Finally, included here are the notes of Henri Estienne, printer of the 1557 editio princeps and a respected Greek scholar in his own right. The leading scholar of the Dutch Renaissance, Daniel Heinsius (1580-1655) was a professor of Greek and director of the library at the University of Leyden, and a prolific editor of Greek and Latin classics that were acclaimed by scholars all over Europe. Apart from the content, this copy comes from one of the most impressive libraries of the day, that of the cleric and statesman--and probably the most powerful Frenchman of the period--Cardinal Armand Jean du Plessis, Duke of Richelieu and Fronsac (1585-1642). He had ambitious political goals, chief among them the consolidation of royal power in France and the solidification of France as the preeminent state on the continent. He succeeded very well at both. At the same time, as scholar Edmond Bonnaffé notes, "the chief minister of France was also the most illustrious French collector." (He was also a great patron of the arts and founder of the Académie Française.) His library was "the most vast and most superb in the world" before that assembled by his protegé and successor, Cardinal Mazarin. He sent agents to Italy and Germany to collect books and manuscripts, which he then had bound with his arms. Cardinal Richelieu bequeathed his library to his great-nephew, along with an endowment for its preservation and for acquisitions, and with instructions that it be open to scholars for research. The present volume has weathered the centuries extremely well, and is little changed from its days on the shelves of our famous cardinal.. 180 x 112 mm. (7 1/8 x 4 3/8"). 9 p.l., 534 pp., [1] leaf (blank); 157, [3] pp., [16] leaves. Second Edition. SPLENDID CONTEMPORARY TAN MOROCCO, RICHLY GILT, covers with decorative chain frame, central panel with cornerpieces densely gilt with fleur-de-lys, garland, and small floral tools, CENTRAL OVAL MEDALLION WITH THE ARMS OF CARDINAL RICHELIEU enclosed by multiple garland and floral tools, flat spine with elongated panel similarly tooled, newer endpapers, all edges gilt. In a modern velvet-lined, red morocco-covered box designed to look like a book, with raised bands and gilt titling on back. Printer's device on title page. Front pastedown with engraved bookplate of Maurice Burrus; "Cardinal" written in ink on title page and first page of main text. Printed in Greek and Latin in parallel columns. Dibdin II, 232; Brunet III, 1552. A handful of trifling imperfections (small stains to boards, title page lightly soiled, final quire a little browned, occasional faint marginal stains), but A VERY FINE COPY, clean and fresh internally, in a virtually unworn binding shimmering with gold. This is a collection of 41 dissertations on various philosophical, ethical, and theological topics by the second century Greek rhetorician and philosopher Maximus of Tyre, offered here in a superb binding and with very distinguished provenance. The volume also contains the "Handbook on Platonism" of Maximus' contemporary Alcinous, along with the notes and emendations of the illustrious classical scholar Daniel Heinsius.

Provenance: Robert Steele* (ink ownership stamp at tail of title); Birkbeck College (blind stamps to title-page and leaf 2b4). A handsome copy. ----Becker 27; Hoover 73; DSB I, p. 377-84. - FIRST EDITION, edited from the manuscript by Johann Crombach (1585-1651). Bacon's main sources for his theories on optics and perspective were Euclid, Ptolemy, and Alhazen, and he 'followed Grosseteste in emphasizings the use of lenses, not only for burning, but also for magnification, to aid natural vision' (DSB). *Robert Steele (1860-1944) was a British scholar and medievalist, best known for editing the 16-volume Opera hactenus inedita Rogeri Bacon. His publications of Bacon's works attracted funding from several learned societies, as well as a Civil List Pension and an Honorary Doctorate from Durham University. He was also one of the early Executive Members of the International Academy of the History of Science. His house and personal library were destroyed in a German air raid in 1941. (Wikisource). The highly developed knowledge of Greek antiquity in the matter of light, vision, and colour was unknown in its raw form to the Middle Ages, although Pliny's Historia naturalis, of which book XI is extensively concerned with the eye, was known and excerpted. Oddly enough, Pliny was not known to Isidore of Seville, who does in his Etymologiae, the great encycolopaedia of the period, discuss optical matters and the eye. Earlier, St. Augustine had in various passages, and notably in his commentary on Genesis, expounded the doctrine of the 'extramissionists', i.e. those who held that sight is the extramission from the eye of the person seeing of a 'fire'. This idea was enlarged upon, taking ideas from Plato's Timaeus and the commentary of Chalcidius on it (known through the Middle Ages) by figures from around 1100 AD such as Adelard of Bath and William of Conches. According to these thinkers there is, as it were, a perpetual current or transmission between the eye of the observer and the object observed: the effect of inflammation or disease of the eye on vision is cited as an indication of this. The Optica and Catoptrica of Euclid were translated into Latin (via the Arabic) about 1150 AD, as De visu or De aspectibus and De speculis. The De aspectibus is the work of Gerard of Cremona, and survives in three manuscripts. The first version of De visu was made from the Greek ('Ponatur ab oculo eductas rectas lineas ferri spatio...') and survives in a number of manuscripts, the earliest of the thirteenth centuty, although the whole matter is complicated by the fact that the same incipit may begin a text differing quite substantially in various ways. The De speculis ('Visum rectum esse cuius media terminos...') survives again in a large number of manuscripts, and there have been many printed editions, but not of the medieval translation. Gerard of Cremona translated from the Arabic the pseudo-Euclidian De speculis (Compositio speculorum mimbilium), beginning 'Preparatio speculi in quo videas alterius imaginem...', which circulated as Euclid's De speculis. In addition there were other works, notably the Latin translation by Eugene of Sicily from the Arabic version of Ptolemy's Optica or De aspectibus, a work known in some fourteen manuscripts. In addition there were works by the great Arab philosophers and commentators which touched in greater or lesser detail on the topic. The truly remarkable and important Englishman Robert Grosseteste (1168-1253), who knew Plato's Timaeus, and much more of the relevant literature, held that optical problems could be subjected to geometrical discussion and analysis, although he did not hold that everything could be resolved simply by geometry. It was Grosseteste who drew an elegant distinction (in his commentary on Aristotle's Analytica posteriora) between Propter quid and Quia demonstrations, the former causal and geometrical, and the latter using physical principles. The one important optical text unknown to Grosseteste was the work of Ibn al-Haytham. Albert the Great, teacher of Aquinas, probably did know his De aspectibus, just as he knew much other literature. Albert defended the autonomy of mathematics and physics, and refused to subordinate the latter to the former, although he did see that the science of Perspectiva, which was essentially geometrical, should be used to investigate the phenomenon of vision, and his view of vision was diametrically opposed to the school of the extramissionists. Roger Bacon, one of the 'founding fathers' of geometrical optics, was more or less a. contemporary of John Pecham, a Franciscan, whose Perspectiva communis circulated widely, although Bacon is today better known. He was utterly dismissive of the work of Albert the Great, and holds a position which is an extension of that of Grosseteste. In addition Bacon had a much better knowledge of the literature, in particular of Ptolemy and Ibn al-Haytham. His glorification of the importance of mathematics is powerful: 'there are four great sciences. . . and the gate and key of these sciences is mathematics. . . which has always been used by holy and wise men more than any other science. Its neglect. . . has ruined the whole educational system of the Latins. . . if one grasps the basic wisdom concerning this science and applies them correctly to knowledge of other sciences, one will be able to know all things. . . easily and powerfully' (Opus maius iv. 1.1.) Bacon clearly prefered Propter quid demonstrations, and his Perspectiva and De multiplicatione specierum are rich in geometrical argument and proof, copiously shown in geometrical illustrations (fifty-one such in the Perspectiva and thirty-nine in the De multiplicatione). Earlier sources had considered the problems of reflection and refraction of radiation, and Bacon fully understood the geometrical principles involved, and produced, for example, a highly sophisticated analysis of mirrors and mirror-images. Equally his treatment of refraction was skilled, although his geometry failed him when it came to discussing the anatomy of the eye, where Bacon argued following Ibn al-Haytham's De aspectibus but anatomical methods and findings were over-ridden by the demands of geometry. Similarly his geometrical explanation of how a circular image is achieved of a round object seen through a triangular or rectangular aperture is rigorous and beautifully demonstrated, but wrong, as Kepler was to show at the beginning of the seventeenth century. For Bacon, as for others, the central question of the Perspectiva was how we see, and it was in his De specierum multiplicatione that he discussed at length the nature of radiation: light and colour emanate in every direction from every point of the surface of a visible object and do this continuously; the path is represented by straight lines or rays; light is not a body but a likeness of the luminous body, what he calls corporeal form, a platonic form which in the case of light and colour takes on a material medium. He realised that seeing involved not only the eye but the brain also, and he divides the brain into 'cells' (following Avicenna), as well as giving a largely accurate account of the anatomy of the eye and the optic nerves. Following Ibn al-Haytham, Bacon gives a geometrical scheme which makes radiation enter the eye 'to yield a distincy and erect image' of what is the visual field. He believed that visual perception is engendered by radiation from the visual object to the eye (as Aristotle, Avicenna and ibn-al-Haytham) and that light and colour make a sort of impression on the 'crystalline humour' of the eye, and this impression of radiation on the eye he imagined as an infinite set of cones or pyramids, falling on the 'crystalline humour' in the same order as the points of origin in the visual field, and in a perpendicular way: oblique rays he explains as inherently weak; therefore only perpendicular rays produce vision, although all rays reaching the eye from a given point in the visual field may come together in the eye at a given point. Here we have the first glimmerings of the principle of focussing, which later became important. Bacon's attempt to reconcile the intromissionist theory with the extramissionist leads him to say that 'the eye must perform the act of sight of its own power' (he cites the weakness of the eye affecting sight), but at the same time he agrees with Aristotle's view that 'sense always receives the species of sensible things' and that it is this which constitutes the act of perception. In Part II of the Perspectiva Bacon recounts a whole range of optical phenomena - long sight, near sight, errors of vision, clarity of vision, on the moon, on our perceptions of magnitude, and so on, all drawing on a wide variety of earlier sources, and on experimentation. Part III deals with reflection and refraction, discussing the geometry of the former in various sorts of mirrors, showing a good understanding of focal point and focal plain. Ibn al-Haythgam when discussing the physics of reflection says 'light is moved very swiftly, and when it falls on a mirror it is not allowed to penetrate... since the original force and nature of motion still remain in it, the light is reflected in the direction from which it came'. Bacon took a different view: '[in the reflection of a species], the species undergoes no violence' but if resistance impedes its forwards motion, then the species 'generates itself in some other direction... for it could be violently driven back, as a ball from a wall, only if it were a body': there is nothing in the mirror, and when we see a rainbow, what we really see is a distortion of the sun outside its true place. Bacon treats of refraction similarly. Bacon sent his Opus maius, of which these treatises form part, to the papal court at Viterbo in 1267/68, and by the 1270s its influence was felt in the work of Witelo (d. 1281), a Silesian active there. Witelo followed much of what Bacon had argued. . . This 1614 edition, the first, is late: some ten years after Kepler's Paralipomena ad Vittelionem, which rewrote optics, and was published in Protestant Germany by Johann Combach, professor of philosophy, and later of theology, at Marburg, author of Metaphysicorum liber singularis. . . Combach was closely bound up with Rosicrucianism and this work has a preface addressed to the Rosicrucians (dropped from the second edition of 1620). It is dedicated to John Prideaux, Rector of Exeter College, Oxford, in the Bodleian library of which university Combach had studied in 1609 (and where he had found the Bacon manuscript he used for his edition). (David C. Lindberg: Roger Bacon and the origins of Perspectiva in the Middle Ages a critical edition. . .

The first edition of Pedro Ordoñez de Cevallos' description of his travels around the world and in the Spanish colonies in South America, in the late 16th and early 17th century. It is one of the earliest published personal narratives of a circumnavigation, and the first to recount a circumnavigation beginning in the Americas. "Pedro Ordoñez de Cevallos was born at Jaen in the middle of the sixteenth century. At an early age he travelled to Chile, the Antilles and Mexico in Valverde's fleet. Later he visited the Philippines from Acapulco and various East Indian Islands. In this account of his travels are many interesting details regarding the productions, costumes, customs and manners, from a soldier's point of view" - Herschel Jones. Ordonez de Cevallos was born about 1557, and travelled extensively as a soldier of fortune from the 1570's in the eastern Mediterranean, to Jerusalem, Crete, and north Africa. In the 1580's he went to the New World, visiting Bermuda enroute. The narrative is one of the earliest publications to include material about Bermuda, containing two chapters about the island. Bermuda was first noted by Oviedo in his HISTORIA GENERAL...of 1535, but there was no permanent colony until the English settlement in 1612. Much of Ordonez de Cevallos' career was spent in the Spanish colonies of South America. He settled in Quito, Ecuador in 1590 and travelled to other parts of the continent. Around 1600 he travelled with the Manila Galleon to the Phillipines, then on to Macao, Canton, other places on the Chinese coast, and to Nagasaki in Japan. After this he served as a soldier in wars in Cambodia, and eventually went on to India and then back to Spain. Later he travelled again to the New World, returning to Ecuador and thus completing his around-the-world journey. By this time he had been ordained as a priest. He died about 1635. This work is of considerable rarity. A second edition was issued in 1691. Extracts were often translated and reprinted in various collections, such as those of DeBry, Barlaeus, and in Purchas' PILGRIMS. Extracts were also included in the 1622 Latin printing of Herrera's NOVUS ORBIS.... Because of the rarity of the first edition it is better known from these sources than the original text.

        Peregrinaçaõ de Fernão Mendez Pinto que consta de muitas e muy estranhas cousas que vio e ouvio no Reyno da China, no da Tartaria, no de Pegù, no de Martauão, e em outros muitos Reynos, e Senhorios das partes Orientaes

      x+428 pages. Quarto (11 1/2" x 8") bound in original leather binding with raised bands and gilt label to spine. Edited by Antonio Tenreiro. In double column pages issued without map. First published in 1614.Fernão Mendes Pinto was a Portuguese explorer and writer. His exploits are known through the posthumous publication of his memoir Pilgrimage Peregrinação in 1614, an autobiographical work whose truthfulness is nearly impossible to assess. The tale of his adventures was written after the fact, according to Pinto's memories of the events, and for that reason it may be open to doubt as a completely accurate historical source. However, it well documents the impact of the Asian civilizations on the Europeans and constitutes a perfectly realistic analysis of Portuguese action in the Orient, far more realistic than the one made by Luís de Camões in The Lusiads. The most controversial of his claims is that of having been the first European to land in Japan and the introduction of the arquebus. Despite the impossibility of proving these specific assertions, there is little doubt that Pinto was among the first Europeans in Japan, and therefore his account may be considered more reliable than other books describing this period that were written long afterwards. Another controversial claim, that he fought in Java against the Muslims, has been analyzed by various historians. The Dutch historian P. A. Tiele, who wrote in 1880, did not believe Pinto was present during the campaign, but rather that he wrote his information from secondhand sources. Even so, Tiele admits Pinto's account cannot be disregarded because of the lack of alternative information about Javanese history during the time period; despite the doubts over Pinto's accuracy, his viewpoint may represent the only authoritative source in existence. Maurice Collis, a modern expert on Asian affairs who lived in the area for twenty years, holds the opinion that Fernão's accounts, while not entirely true, remain essentially true with respect to the basic events. Because of this Collis considers Pinto's work the most complete European account of 16th century Asian history.Condition:Some worming to the leather and internal gutters, leather scuffed and cracked at back heal corners, rubbing to raised spine areas, spine head chipped away. Red underling in pencil through out else a good copy.

With 13 full-, half-, and quarter-page copper engravings (1 folding), Plantin's woodcut device, initials and several woodcut textual illustrations. Second work, "Poliorceticon": Pp. 219, [7] index. 36 full- and half-page engravings, woodcut printer's devices on title and last leaf, woodcut initials and ornaments. Bound in contemporary vellum, rebacked with original ink-lettered spine laid down, large blind-stamped arabesque centrepiece on covers. Brownish stain on rear cover, leaves lightly toned, noticeable offsetting from some plates, but overall a nice clean copy. An early combined edition of the Flemish humanist and Latin scholar, Justus Lipsius's two most important treatises on Roman military history. "De Militia Romana", first published in 1595, is a commentary on Polybius's "History", with the Greek text and a parallel Latin translation. "Poliorcetica" (1599) is a study of the Roman machinery of war. Both are embellished with the fine engravings of Peeter vander Borcht and Theodore Galle. In addition to these works, Lipsius produced critical editions of Vallerius Maximus, Vellius Paterculus, Seneca, and the younger Pliny, but he was most highly regarded for his editions of Tacitus (1574, 1600), whose work he knew so well that he "offered to repeat any passage with a dagger at his breast, to be used against him if his memory failed him". (Sandys II, 303).. Vellum. Very Good. Quarto.

        Speculum Orientalis Occidentalisque Indiae navigationum; quarum una Georgii à Spilbergen classis cum potestate Praefecti, altera Jacobi le Maire auspiciis imperioque directa, annis 1614, 15, 16, 17, 18. Exhibens novi in Mare Australe transitus, ...Leiden, Niclaes van Geelkerck for Jodocus Hondius, 1619. Oblong 4to (19 x 25 cm). With a large engraving on title-page, and 25 numbered engraved plates with maps and views: 2 large folding (a map of the world and a map of the East Indian archipelago), 5 double-page (mostly bound as fold-outs) and 18 full-page, several with insets. Blind-tooled pigskin (ca. 1700? but probably the book's first binding), in a panel design with 2 large rolls, rebacked.

      Borba de Moraes, pp. 826-827; Landwehr & V.d. Krogt, VOC 361; Sabin 89450; STCN (2 complete copies of present issue & 4 of issue without Hondius's name). Scarce, first Latin edition (in the same year as the first edition in the original Dutch) of one of the bestsellers of illustrated 17th-century travel literature, describing one of the most famous early voyages around the world by Joris van Spilbergen, the veteran Dutch East Indies naval officer-turned-pirate, undertaken from 1614 to 1618. A short survey of another of the most important early voyages around the world, by Schouten and Le Maire in the years 1615 to 1617, is added at the end, with drop-title "Navigationes Australes". It reports Le Maire's proof that Tierra del Fuego is an island and his discovery of what is still called the Strait of Le Maire, an alternative route to the Pacific. In 1614 the VOC commissioned Spilbergen to sail to the Moluccas with nearly 700 men. Despite the commercial nature of his expedition, Spilbergen's six vessels were heavily armed, anticipating encounters with silver-laden Spanish vessels. Spilbergen spent two years calling at various Spanish and Portuguese ports along both coasts of South America, failing to capture any great amounts of silver or silk from Manila, but burning several settlements and emerging triumphant from a naval skirmish just south of Lima.By contrast, Le Maire's less mercenary expedition resulted in important discoveries; his exploration of Tierra del Fuego and the Tuamotou Archipelago called into doubt the existence of a massive southern continent (until its existance was proved in the 19th century), providing a catalyst for Tasman's discovery of New Zealand and Australia. The two expeditions crossed paths in the Dutch East Indies in 1616.Spilbergen's book is also remarkable as an early document of Dutch voyages to the Brazilian coast, especially valuable for its detailed account of the stay in the Ilha Grande, from October 1614 to January 1615, and in São Vicente in 1615. Slight browning throughout, with the title-page and its conjugate cut down and the margins expertly restored, along with the gutter margin of, worm holes repaired in 7 plates and 4 leaves of text, slightly affecting the printed image in 3 plates. Binding worn and rebacked, with some minor stains.
