1585 Ocharte Leaf

From Estatutos Generales De Barcelona, a book of religious statutes, brought out in Mexico by Pedra Ocharte in 1585. This was less than half a century after the first book printed in the Western Hemisphere, and preceding, by more than another half century, the first book printed in the English North American Colonies (i.e. Cambridge, 1639). A large, widely spaced and, for a Spanish book, rather delicate type has been employed, both type and paper having doubtless been imported from the mother country. The indentations seen on the upper margin of this page were caused by the title being burnt into the top of the book, as was frequently the custom with early books and MSs. These were kept on the shelves with ends out, backs presumably up to shed the dust, a mute testimony to the housewifely instincts of the friar or scholar.. F3- 17

1589 Ortelius, Abraham: Epitome Theatri Orteliani, Map of Austria

Fine, original, copperplate engraved map of Austria (Austriae Descriptio), from Ortelius, Abraham: Epitome Theatri Orteliani (Editor Philip Galle. Antwerp: Plantin, 1589--Approbation 26 May, 1589). This is an early edition: the second in Latin. The small-format editions of Ortelius' great atlas made the work available to a wider readership. Ortelius was a towering figure in the history of cartography. He was the first to assemble a modern atlas in the form of a collection of maps of a uniform style with accompanying text. He was a formidable scholar with wide academic contacts throughout Europe and was at pains to draw on the very best available maps of countries and regions. His folio-sized Theatrum Orbis Terrarum was first published in 1570. Estimates suggest, counting all subsequent editions, that as many as 7000 copies were printed. Still, it was the most expensive book of the 16th century, and the pocket sized Epitome, was introduced for the substantial market that could afford the larger atlas. The maps in the Epitome are usually reducions of the larger maps in the Theatrum. A NOTE ON COLORING: almost none of the pocket atlases were distributed with hand coloring to the maps. Coloring added greatly to the cost of any plate-book, and in the case of the Epitome--which was intended in part for those of lesser means--it would have been an unwarranted extravagance. While a few Epitomes with 'original' or contemporary color have come on the market, they are exceedingly rare. Therefore any map from the Epitome that one currently finds on the market with color, has almost certainly been colored by the seller, or someone else very recently (within the last few years.) Althought the coloring is often attractive, it also almost always is not authentic in style or color of the period. To my mind, and to many others, the real attractiveness of these little maps lies in the engraving and paper, with all the texture and imperfections of age.. F14- 8

1590 Prayer Leaf

1590 leaf from copy of Book of Common Prayer in English with woodcuts. sometimes referred to as Queen Eliz. Prayer Book. Book of Christian prayers, collected out of the ancient writers and best learned of our time, worthy to be read with an earnest mind of all Christians, in these dangerous and troublesome daies, that God for Christes sake will yet still be merciful unto us. By Richard Day. Publisher: London, Printed by Richard Yardley, 1590. REFF STC 6431. Each page of text within historated borders: these depict the Life of Christ, allegorized virtues and vices, the five senses, apocolypse, charity, the dance of death and the last judgement. Elaborate woodcut borders surround the text on every page, a design harking back to the French book of hours on the one hand and forward to william Blake's ill. books on the other. The borders show emblematic, classical and biblical scenes and a dance of death series loosely based on Holbein.. F21- 41

There were two issues of Chaucer bearing this date - the first printed by Adam Islip, the second by George Bishop. This leaf is from the Islip edition.

1600 Richard Hakluyt Leaf About the New World

One of the earliest references ever printed on the New World--only 120 years after the discovery of America. This leaf deals with "THE ENGLISH VOYAGES NAVIGATIONS OF M FROBISHER." Historated text dealing with the Temperature of regions. THE THIRD AND LAST VOLUME OF THE PRINCIPAL NAVIGATION,VOYAGES...... Text Leaf from Hakluyt, Richard, The Principal Navigation's, Voiages, Traffiqves and Discoueries of the English Nation, Made by Sea of Ouer-Land, To the Remote and Farthest Distant Quarters of the Earth. Printed London: George Bishop, Ralph Newberie and Robert Barker 1600. Small folio measures 10.5 by 7 inches. The first edition originally printed in 1589 consisted of just one volume,by the third printing from which this leaf comes from this work had grown into a 3 volume set of which the 3rd and final volume mostly focused on the America's. It includes the accounts of Niza, Ruiz and Espejo on New Mexico, Ulloa and Drake on California. Hakluyt reprints accounts of Hariot, Frobisher, Drake, Cartier, Laudonniere, Cabot, Coronado, Raleigh, Gilbert and others. It has been stated that "Hakluyt's Principall Navigations was the fruit of a life devoted to promoting the cause of English colonisation and commerce by disseminating knowledge about and stimulating interest in, all the less known or recently discovered parts of the world."- Church. It is a well known fact that though he never visited the America's that he "Hakluyt was an enthusiast with regard to western discoveries and he spared neither time nor labour to obtain trustworthy information with regard to the voyages in which he took so deep an interest. His narratives of the early voyages, so far as we have the means of verifying them, follow with almost entire accuracy the original documents ..," - Winsor Hakluyt lectured on modern geography at Christ Church, Oxford. He was a major inspiration and instigator of British expansion overseas, particularly in America. He argued in favour of exploration to find a north-west passage as well as for the expansion of English interests in India. In 1599 he became an adviser to the East India Company, and in 1606, was one of the chief promoters of the petition to the king for patents for the colonisation of Virginia REFF:Sabin 29595-29598, STC 12626-12626a.
