[his] second and more famous illustrated publication appeared in 1620 in two folio volumes, the first dedicated to James I and the second to the universities of Cambridge and Oxford. Holland's letterpress is in Latin throughout ... The work opens with a portrait of Henry VIII, and closes with one of Thomas Holland (d. 1612). There are sixty-five portraits in all, and two engravings of monuments (of Prince Henry and Queen Elizabeth respectively). In one copy in the British Museum there is inserted an old manuscript list of the pictures whence the engravings were made. This was printed in 1809 for insertion in other copies" (as here present at the end). STC 13582 and A.M. Hind, Engraving in England in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, vol ii 145-62.

        HISTORIA ORIENTAL DE LAS PEREGRINACIONES

      - DE FERNAN MENDEZ PINTO PORTVGVES, ADONDE SE ESCRIVEN mvchas, y mvy estrañas cosas que vio, y oyò en los Reynos de la China, Tartaria, Sornao, que vulgarmente se llama Siam, Calamiñam, Peguu, Martauan, y otros muchos de aquellas partes Orientales, de que en estas nuestras de Occidente ay muy poca, ò ninguna noticia. CASOS FAMOSOS, ACONTECIMIENTOS ADMIRABLES, leyes, gouierno, trages, Religion, y costumbres de aquellos Gentiles de Asia. TRADVZIDO DE PORTVGVES EN CASTELLANO POR el Licenciado Francisco de Herrera Maldonado, Canonigo de la Santa Yglesia Real de Arbas. A MANVEL SEVERIM DE FARIA, Chantre, y Canonigo de la Santa Yglesia Metropolitana de Euora. Año [vinheta com escudo armoriado das armas Reais de Portugal]. 1620. COM PRIVILEGIO. En Madrid, Por Tomas Iunti, Impressor del Rey nuestro señor. Impresso a costa de Manuel Rodriguez, Mercader de Libros. Vendese en su casa fronteiro de San Basilio, y en Palacio. In 8º grande de 27x19 cm. com [5], 8, [2], 4, fólios e 481*** pags. Encadernação do sec. XIX/XX em percalina com lombada em pele. *** Exemplar com danos; com falta das páginas 233/234; 375/376 e 377/78; títulos de posse da época na folha de rosto "Thomas Andriaga Cortabazza"; danos em vários fólios; substituição de folhas com perda de margem; e sublinhados e notas marginais coevas. Apresentando restauros marginais na folha de rosto (espelhado), manchas de acidez própria do papel e outras leves manchas Impressão barroca com texto a duas colunas, adornada com o brasão das Armas Reais de Portugal (variante de outro exemplar conhecido com armas de Manuel Severim de Faria)gravado ao centro da folha de rosto, e a primeira folha do texto adornada com um bela vinheta tipográfica e uma capitular xilográfica. Raríssima primeira edição da tradução castelhana da autoria de Francisco de Herrera Maldonado, saída apenas 6 anos depois da 1ª edição Portuguesa de 1614, que foi o ponto de partida para a enorme divulgação da Peregrinação em toda a Europa, pois foi a partir do texto de Maldonado que foram realizadas as traduções para outras línguas. Esta é a variante com dedicatória a D. Duarte Marquês de Flechilla As duas variantes (por nós) conhecidas apenas diferem na dedicatória e no brasão de armas estampado na folha de rosto. Contém uma dedicatória a D. Duarte, Marquês de Flechilla, y Villarramiel, de Malagon, etc. etc. No entanto esta variante não tem gravado ao centro da folha de rosto o brasão do mesmo Marquês, mas sim armas de Portugal. Seguem-se 2 fólios de dedicatória, também diversa no texto, e todas as páginas numeradas do corpo da obra são exactamemtes iguais às da presente variante. O que nos faz concluir que se trata de uma só impressão. A Peregrinação é uma obra de caráter novelesco, ímpar na literatura mundial pelo seu estilo, uma obra de arte de grande classe, uma das maiores criações romanescas produzidas na Península Ibérica por um autor de elevada sensibilidade artística e com notável capacidade para criar personagens, espectáculos e pequenas novelas inseridas na narrativa principal. É a primeira obra a nível mundial que transmite a tomada de consciência da unidade do mundo, através da sua diversidade, consequência do encontro de civilizações resultante dos descobrimentos portugueses. Baseada na vasta e rica experiência obtida pelo autor na sua aventurosa vida, durante os anos de juventude e nas viagens pelo Oriente, a sua apresentação do mundo exótico oriental e da reacção dos portugueses de quinhentos ao ambiente asiático, apesar de não ser factualmente exacta, tem muito de verdade. Foram estas características que a tornaram umbestseller mundial no século XVII e XVIII, (6 edições castelhanas, 4 inglesas, 6 francesas, 6 holandesas, 2 alemãs) pois era a primeira informação de conjunto sobre o Extremo Oriente, com o atractivo especial de apresentar essa informação sob uma forma romanesca, que conseguia atingir públicos mais vastos do que os tratados históricos e descrições oficiais. A obra tem afinidades com D. Quixote [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        De Sensu Rerum et Magia, libri quatuor, Pars Mirabilis Occultae Philosophiae, ubi demonstratur Mundum esser Dei vivam statuam, beneque cognosentem

      demonstratur, Mundum esse Dei vivam statuam, beneque cognosentem. Omnesque illius partes.e fere omnium Naturae arcanorum rationes aperiuntur. Tobias Adami recensuit, et nunc primum evulgavit. Francofurti, apud Egenolphum Emmelium, impensis Godefridi Tampachij, M.DC.XX, 1620 - in-4 (mm 220x155), pp.(16), 372 (ultima bianca), leg. coeva in pergamena. Pagina di titolo racchiusa da un'elaborata bordura incisa e raffigurante il sole, alberi di palma e una campana. Prima edizione, assai rara e pregiata, di una delle opere più studiate e influenti del filosofo, al quale costò la prigione e la tortura, su condanna dell'Inquisizione per eresia. Il De Sensu Rerum rappresenta un completo esposto di filosofia neo-platonica ed ermetica. Campanella ivi tenta di dimostrare che il numero dei mondi è infinito, che i pianeti sono abitati e che il sole si avvicina gradatamente alla terra. Discute inoltre di magia, dei sensi, dell'intelletto, dell'anima, del mondo esterno, ecc. Il trattato lascia intuire di essere stato influenzato dalla linea filosofica di B. Telesio e G. Bruno. Scritto originalmente nel 1590-92, il manoscritto venne rubato a Campanella da alcuni frati a Bologna. Venne quindi riscritto dallo stesso autore attorno al 1604 e pubblicato nella presente edizione originale nel 1620. Firpo n.7. Yates 381-82. Caillet 1984. Vinciana 2162: ''Opera rarissima scritta durante la prigionia.'' Mellon 79. Thorndike II, 291-300. Ferguson I, 138-139. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Erste Gesamtausgabe mit allen drei Teilen; einzeln erstmals zwischen 1614 und 1619 erschienen. In den ersten beiden Teilen erklärt Napier das Wesen der Logarithmen und stellt eine logarithmische Tabelle der Sinuswerte eines Viertelkreises im Minutenabstand zusammen. Im dritten (posthum erschienenen) Teil erklärt er, wie er seine Tabellen entwickelt hatte. - "His 'Description of the Wonderful Table of Logarithms' is unique in the history of science in that a great discovery was the result of the unaided original speculation of one individual without precursors and almost without contemporaries in his field. The essence of Napier's method is his ingenious use of a relation between an arithmetical and a geometrical progression. Unlike modern logarithms, however, Napier's decrease as the numbers increase. Also his logarithms had no explicit 'base'" (PMM). - Stellenweise etwas gebräunt und mit schwachen Fleckenrändern. Die letzte beiden Blätter mit kleinen hinterlegten Fehlstellen im weißen Rand.

      Artist: Goos Abraham ca ; issued in: Amsterdam; date: ca1620 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Upper and lower margin some tears perfecly restored; - size (in cm): 37 x 49; - description: Map shows total Spain; - vita of the artist: Abraham Goos (1590?1643), was a cartographer and map seller. He has published numerous globes, land and sea maps together with Jodocus Hondius and Johannes Janssonius in Antwerp.From 1666, Pieter Goos, his son, also published a number of well produced atlases. He was the first to map Christmas Island, which he labelled "Mony" in his map of the East Indies, published in his 1666 Zee-Atlas (Sea Atlas). His Atlas ofte Water-Weereld (Atlas or Water World) has been cited as one of the best maritime atlases of its time. Another of his fine works was the Oost Indien (East Indies) map published in 1680. Pilot books, which contained a large number of navigation charts, were published by many authors, including Goos. He had a notarized agreement with two others, Jacob Lootsman and Hendrick Doncker, to publish pilot books for navigation along the Mediterranean coast, also covering easterly and westerly navigational routes. These were called the Dutch pilot books and remained valid for the period from 1643 to 1680. Goos was also instrumental in publishing the first pilot book for coastlines outside Europe. A further improvement over the pilot books in Dutch cartography was the publication of sea atlases covering the whole world. Initiated in 1659 by Doncker, the approach was also adopted by Goos from 1666. One of his larger works is named le grand & nouveau miroir ou flambeau de la mer (1662).In the same year, Goos published -The Lighting Colomne or Sea-Mirrour-, which not only contained nautical charts, but also -a brief instruction of the art of navigation-.The maps of Goos and Gerard van Kuelen were used exclusively during the eighteenth century until 1740. They were, however, found to have deficiencies such as the location of sandbars, grand banks and islands in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, with inaccuracies of as much as 44 leagues on the reduced Goos maps.Goos' famous world map titled Atlas ofte Water-Weereld was in two parts, one for each hemisphere. The colourful presentation included the two poles. His maritime maps encompassed not only Europe, Great Britain and Ireland but also the two poles.

        Novus Atlas, das ist / Welt- beschreibung/ mit schönen neuen ausführlichen land-Taffeln in Kupfer gestochen und an den tag gegeben

      Artist: Blaeu Willem Janszoon ca ; issued in: Amsterdam; date: ca1620 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 41 x 25; - description: Titlepage from the Atlas of J. Blaeu; - vita of the artist: Joan Guilliemus Blaeu was the eldest son of Willem Janszoon Blaeu (1571-1638), and was probably born in Alkmaar in the province of Noord-Holland in the final years of the 16th century. He was brought up in Amsterdam, and studied law at the University of Leiden before going into partnership with his father in the 1630s. Although his father Willem had cartographic interests, having studied under the Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe and having manufactured globes and instruments, his primary business was as a printer. It was under the control of Joan that the Blaeu printing press achieved lasting fame by moving towards the printing of maps and expanding to become the largest printing press in Europe in the 17th century.By the 1660s the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum (or Atlas Maior as it had became known by this time) had expanded to between 9 and 12 volumes, depending on the language. With over 3,000 text pages and approximately 600 maps, it was the most expensive book money could buy in the later 17th century. The translation of the text from Latin into Dutch, English, German, French, and Spanish for several volumes created enormous work for those involved in typography and letterpress activities. It is estimated that over 80 men must have been employed full-time in the Blaeu printing house in Bloemgracht, not including engravers who worked elsewhere, with over 15 printing presses running simultaneously, and in 1667 a second press was acquired at Gravenstraat. At the same time as producing the Atlas Maior, Blaeu was also publishing town plans of Italy, maps for globes, and other volumes. At its peak the Blaeu press managed to produce over 1 million impressions from 1,000 copper plates within four years.

Ruscelli is best known for his important revision of Ptolemy's Geographia, which was published post humously in 1574. It is generally assumed that Alexius Pedemontanus was a pseudonym of Girolamo Ruscelli. In a later work, Ruscelli reported that the Secreti contained the experimental results of an ?Academy of Secrets? that he and a group of humanists and noblemen founded in Naples in the 1540s. Ruscelli?s academy is the first recorded example of an experimental scientific society. The academy was later imitated by Giambattista Della Porta, who founded an ?Accademia dei Secreti? in Naples in the 1560s.

He is best known for his early maps of the New World and Europe, for re-establishing the reputation of the work of Gerard Mercator, and for his portraits of Francis Drake. He helped establish Amsterdam as the center of cartography in Europe in the 17th century. He was born in Wakken and grew up in Ghent. In his early years he established himself as an engraver, instrument maker and globe maker. In 1584 he moved to London to escape religious difficulties in Flanders.While in England, Hondius was instrumental in publicizing the work of Francis Drake, who had made a circumnavigation of the world in the late 1570s. In particular, in 1589 Hondius produced a now famous map of the bay of New Albion, where Drake briefly established a settlement on the west coast of North America. Hondius' map was based on journal and eyewitness accounts of the trip and has long fueled speculation about the precise location of Drake's landing, which has not yet been firmly established by historians. Hondius is also thought to be the artist of several well-known portraits of Drake that are now in the National Portrait Gallery in London.In 1593 he moved to Amsterdam, where he remained until the end of his life. In co-operation with the Amsterdam publisher Cornelis Claesz. in 1604 he purchased the plates of Gerard Mercator's Atlas from Mercator's grandson. Mercator's work had languished in comparison to the rival Theatrum Orbis Terrarum by Ortelius. Hondius republished Mercator's work with 36 additional maps, including several which he himself had produced. Despite the addition of his own contributions, Hondius gave Mercator full credit as the author of the work, listing himself as the publisher. Hondius' new edition of Mercator's work was a great success, selling out after a year. Hondius later published a second edition, as well as a pocket version Atlas Minor. The maps have since become known as the "Mercator/Hondius series".In the French edition of the Atlas Minor we find one of the first instances of a thematic map using map symbols. This is a map entitled Designatio orbis christiani (1607) showing the dispersion of major religions.[1]Between 1605 and 1610 he was employed by John Speed to engrave the plates for Speed's The Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine.Hondius died, aged 48, in Amsterdam. After his death, his publishing work in Amsterdam was continued by his widow, two sons, Jodocus II and Henricus, and son-in-law Johannes Janssonius, whose name appears on the Atlas as co-publisher after 1633.[2] Eventually, starting with the first 1606 edition in Latin, about 50 editions of the Atlas were released in the main European languages. In the Islamic world, the atlas was partially translated by the Turkish scholar Katip Çelebi. The series is sometimes called the "Mercator/Hondius/Janssonius" series because of Janssonius's later contributions." [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

His books were published in Latin, and were also translated into German, English and French to reach a wider reading public.

        Traité des abus qui se commettent sur les procédures de l'impuissance des hommes et des femmes

      Chez Abraham Pacard, Paris, 1620, in 12, de 42pp. 1f. bl. & 4ff. de table, pl. chagrin rouge fin XIXe, dos orné, triple filet doré sur les plats, dent. int., rousseurs et notes anciennes en marge, exemplaire rogné lég. court en tête (ex-Libris Bibl. du Dr. Charpentier) Edition originale peu commune, de ce traité qui est souvent joint au traité "de la grossesse et accouchement des femmes" de 1621. On y trouve les sujets suivants : "Compagnie charnelle n'est nullement de l'essence du mariage. Dresser, entrer & mouiller, ne sont les poincts suffisants pour la génération. Femme puissante n'est pas toujours celle qui retient & reçoit la semence virile. Des femmes qui ont mis leurs maris en procès pour impuissance. Médecins trenchent & fendent l'hymen comme inutile. Testicule seul engendre. Turc fait couper rasibus le membre à ceux qui gardent ses concubines. Sotte & impertinente définition des Sages femmes." ¶ Bien que généralement attribué à J. Guillemeau, Dezeimeris II. p.665 dit que le traité est de Charles Guillemeau (1588-1656), fils de J. Guillemeau, et le cat. BNF l'attribue aux deux (?) - Gay Amour, femmes III.1238 "Rare" - CCFR 1 seul exemplaire séparé (Reims)
