United Kingdom, 1585. The extraordinary career and oeuvre of the Huguenot artist Jacques Le Moyne de Morgues-the first European artist to visit the new world-have only relatively recently been defined and described. The varied circumstances of his artistic production must surely be unique in the history of art; although large periods of his career are undocumented, he appears to have worked as a court artist in France under Charles IX, is known to have traveled to Florida in 1564 as official artist and cartographer in the ill-fated French attempt to establish a colony there, and to have ended his career as a celebrated botanical artist in Elizabethan London. Until well into the present century, our knowledge of Jacques Le Moyne de Morgues's artistic endeavors was extremely limited and largely confined to the footnotes of inaccessible ethnographic bibliographies. In 1922, however, Spencer Savage, librarian of the Linnean Society, made a discovery that opened the way to the subsequent definition of Le Moyn ... Read more

Nuremberg: Anton Koberger for Sebald Schreyer, 1493. First edition and an outstanding copy of the first illustrated encyclopedia published at the dawn of the discovery period. As a comprehensive contemporary picture of geographical and historical knowledge, the “Nuremberg Chronicle” as it is called, offers nothing less than a history of the world, and, in its own fashion, expanded the barriers of local cities and states just as the transatlantic voyages expanded the boundaries of the world. As a representative picture of 15th- century geographical and historical knowledge, the work is unsurpassed among incunables, in which books of a religious and liturgical nature predominate. A milestone in the history of printing as well, it contains more illustrations than had ever appeared in a printed book, and as a technical challenge of incunable book production, was superseded only by the first printed book, Gutenberg’s Bible, also published in Nuremberg. The magnificent woodcut views (of which 31 ar ... Read more

Klaversma & Hannema 1381; Sabin 69119; STCN (5 copies); Tiele, Bibl. 1052. Rare first and only edition of the heroic exploits of the famous Dutch pirate, privateer and naval officer Jan Erasmus Reyning (1640-1697). His close friend, a Curaçao doctor, wrote down his stories and published them. Reyning's adventurous career began at age ten when he went to sea with his father, who was killed in battle when they served on a privateering ship a couple years later. Jan Erasmus was taken prisoner during the Second Anglo-Dutch War (1665-1667), and went into the service of a French plantation on the island of Hispaniola. Around 1667 he became a buccaneer in the jungles around Santo Domingo, and between 1669 and 1672 he appears to have fought as a privateer captain with French or English letters of marque. He and his partner Jelle Lecat worked with such notorious pirates as Roche Braziliano and Henry Morgan. In 1672, with the Netherlands at war with England and France, he left Spanish service to protect ... Read more

[World map] Das ander alter der werlt

SCHEDEL, Hartmann (1440-1514)

  • Quantity available: 1
Nuremberg, 1493. Wood engraved world map, original hand colouring recto and verso. German text. Sheet size: 16 3/4 x 23 1/4 inches. Schedel's map of the world, from the German edition of the Nuremberg Chronicle: one of the earliest obtainable world maps, here with very fine original hand colouring. Schedel's map is one of the earliest obtainable world maps, and, visually, one of the most evocative of its period. Published just 40 years after the invention of printing, Schedel's map presents the world as seen just prior to Columbus' voyage. The engraving also reflects medieval attitudes toward peoples of distant lands, with grotesque creatures to the left of the map recto, and additional images on verso. Schedel's World map is based upon Ptolemy, omitting Scandinavia, southern Africa and the Far East, and depicting the Indian Ocean as landlocked. The depiction of the World is surrounded by the figures of Shem, Japhet and Ham, and the sons of Noah, who re-populated the Earth afte ... Read more

Belg. Typogr. I, 388; BKVK & WorldCat (3 copies); Rosenwald Coll. 1206; USTC 402039 (5 copies); not in Adams; Bibl. Belg. Rare first edition of Jan II van Ghelen's Dutch translation of Sebastian Brant's famous Ship of fools , a telling satire on the foolishness of men. The book really is a picture book, each act of folly depicted in a large woodcut in which the fool with cap and bells plays the main role, the text explaining the woodcut and its moral. It first appeared in German in 1494, in Latin in 1497, and went through hundreds of editions in many languages, as well as spin-offs of various kinds, including a song by The Grateful Dead in 1974. A Dutch translation appeared in Paris in 1500 and a few more in the following decades, including one at Antwerp in 1548, but the present edition was far more influential and was long even cited as the first.Sebastian Brandt (1457-1521) is famous largely for this verse satire, in which more than a hundred fools set sail in search of a fool's paradise. ...

Graz: Akademische Druck U.verlagsanstalt, 1965. Livre. Neuf. Couverture rigide. Edition originale. 380 x310 mm.. One of the most precious late classical illuminated manuscripts is a herbal produced in Constantinople during the 6th century, which, after its current place of conservation, is called the "Vienna Dioscorides". This codex describes numerous officinal herbs, most of which are illustrated in full-page miniatures covering a whole page. Like the fascinating images of human beings and animals contained in the book, they bear testimony to the great art of book painting at the time of the Byzantine Empire. In the line of text tradition - the herbal of the Greek physician Pedanius Dioscorides (1st century) including insertions from writings of other authors and a number of significant appendices - the Vienna Dioscorides has provided a virtually inexhaustible source for the history of classical sciences and early Byzantine culture. The codex had an enormous influence for several centuries and bec ... Read more

Howgego, to 1800, B177; Klaversma & Hannema 310; STCN (9 copies); Tiele, Bibl. 209. First edition of one of the most richly illustrated accounts of a voyage to Russia, Persia and adjacent countries and territories by the Dutch artist and traveller Cornelis de Bruyn (1652-1726/27). De Bruyn sailed for Archangel in 1701, proceeding to Moscow, where he stayed for over a year. In 1703 he left Moscow, traveling by way of Asia Minor (Turkey) to Persia, where he remained until 1705. After nearly a year in Isfahan, he headed for Persepolis, the ancient Achaemenid palace complex, the ruins of which had his special interest. He spent three months there, carefully drawing the ruins of the palace, the remaining reliefs and cuneiform inscriptions. His drawings of these ruins are the first reliable pictures of this palace made accessible for Western scholars. Leaving Persia in 1705 he proceeded to India, Ceylon and the East Indies. He returned by much the same route, residing in Persia in 1706 and 1707, visiting, amon ... Read more

HUYSMANS, J.-K.

  • Quantity available: 1
Paris: G. Charpentier et Cie.,, 1884. Duodecimo. Original yellow wrappers printed in black. Housed in a quarter black morocco slipcase. Small internal repair to one corner, some light spotting here and there, light vertical creases to the backstrip with some very minor loss. An exceptional copy in original condition and rare thus. First edition, first printing. Huysmans's masterpiece is perhaps unfairly best remembered as the "poisonous French novel" that Wilde's eponymous anti-hero is presumed to have been reading during the course of The Picture of Dorian Gray. Wilde himself said of the book, "This last book of Huysmans is one of the best I have ever seen". Paul Valery described it as his bible. It marks a great turning point in the career of its author and in turn for the European novel. The point at which the strictures of Naturalism are replaced by the hedonism of the aesthetic movement and later the liberties of modernism. À Rebours was included by Connolly as the f ... Read more

London: T. Bensley for T. Macklin [final volume Bensley for T. Cadell & W. Davies], 1800 [for the six volumes of the Bible], 1816 [for the Apocrypha]. First Printing of this Edition n. The most prodigious form of scripture in English ever published, the Macklin Bible features very large and bold type, fine Whatman paper, and a series of engravings by some of the most celebrated artists of the period. Like the Boydell "Shakespeare Gallery" (also printed by Bensley), our Macklin Bible is a vast picture book with illustrations that are grand both in size and emotional impact. According to DNB, Macklin (1752/3-1800) announced his intention to produce a lavishly illustrated, luxuriously produced folio Bible in 1789, and he spent the next 11 years and £30,000 making his dream a reality. His efforts paid off: "the subscription list for 703 copies at £46 1s. apiece was headed by the king, the queen, and the prince of Wales." Sadly, Macklin died just five days after the last engra ...
