SEPTE GiORNATE DELLA Geograpiiia di Francesco Berlingeri, large 
folio, 31 maps engraved on copper, very fine large copy, quite 
perfect, in red morocco super-extra, gilt edges, by Traiotz-Bauzon-

28113 the same, large folio, wanting the map of Palestine, and

The maps aiFord curious indications, so far as they vary from the old 
Ptolemeean series, of the knowledge of Eastern geography possessed by 
Europeans in the fifteenth century. 

Francesco Berlinghieri, a Florentine, contrihuted greatly to the study of 
(jeo;;raphy by this popular work in Italian verse. It bears no date, but 
must have been published about the same time as the Roman Ptolemy of 1478, 
as the Duke of Urbino, to whom it is dedicated, died in 1482. Indeed it is 
more than probable that the work of Berlinghieri is entitled to claim prece- 
dence before the Ptolemy (as the first collection of Maps printed from copper- 
plates), since the two sets of engravings are very much alike, but the Roman 
book exhibits a very superior technical finish which evinces the improvement 
of a later hand. In some respects the Berlinghieri approximates nearer to 
geographical correctness. The added leaf of Register is mounted to the size 
of the book in the first of these two copies.

The maps are from the identical plates used in the edition of 1478, — the 
first illustrated edition of Ptolemy's Geography, and also the first dated 
instance of maps engraved on copper. The work contains a double series of 
maps, firstly the reproduction of the old Greek ones which belong properly to 
the text, and next a set of modern maps which represent the geographical 
knowledge of the time, and which constitute the importance of the volume as 
the first dated General Atlas.

peninsula. This is the first map published on which Greenland is depicted.

Although the Arabic original was written about the year 151.5 (translated 
by the author himself into Italian some ten years later) the information in 
this volume represents for the must part a somewhat earlier period. It gives 
us the historical geography of Africa as known to educated Granadan and 
Moorish Mohammedans about the year 1490.

The passage on p. 296 of this volume, which Mr. Harrisse quotes with 
unfortunate simplicity, is one that deserves consideration. The letter in 
which it occurs is dated 12 August. 1507 ; consequently, there existed at that 
date a printed map showing the discoveries of Vespucci in the New World, 
as far as 10 degrees south latitude. As it is quite certain that Ruysch's map 
was not printed till late in 1507 or the beginning of 1508, at Rome; as the 


S. Die map, although designed in 1507, was not finished till 1513; 
and as, moreover, neither of them corresponds to the mention of the 10 
degi'ees south latitude, we must conclude that a map at present unknown 
was printed before 1507, exhibiting the new discoveries in the west.

The maps are the same as those in the edition of 1490, with seven new

Euysch. entitled " Universalior Cogniti Orbis Tabula ex recentibus confecta 
observationibus." This is the first engraved map i>n which an v part of 
THE TKCE America was shown. Greenland (hereattached to the North-East 
of A.«ia) is in this map drawn for the first time separated from Europe. A little 
below Greenland there is a peninsula marked "Terra Nova," which repre- 
sents perhaps the results of Cabot's voyages. Below this appear Cuba (only 
half of which is drawn), Spagnola and the other islands. Beneath these again 
is drawn the nonh-east corner of South America, entitled "Terra sancte 
crucis sive Mundus novus." The present is the issue with the '-Plisacus 
Sinus " marked upon the east coast of Asia.

Rare. It is three years later than the Roman edition with Ruysch's 
map which contained the first published delineation of America (South 
America, Cuba and the islands). The map of the world, which is in the 
above volume, represents the New World in an extremely curious way. Brazil, 
a large tract, is called Terra Santse Crucis, and the cartographer evinces 
acquaintance with the results of Columbus' third voyage, and Vespucci's 
second and third voyages. The contmuiiy is broken by the margin in conse- 
quence of the peculiar plan of the map, so that Cuba and Hispaniola appear 
next above near their proper places ; and far beyond them, at the same deyree 
of latitude as Ireland, an unfinished shore bearing the words "Regalis 
Domus," indicates the northern continent, while Labrador (Terra Laboratorus) 
is represented as an island off the coast. This is the first graphic 
kecord of the discoveries (in 16U0) of Corte Real. Greenland 
(Engronelat) is drawn as a peninsula of north-west Europe. Coming nearer 
home, it is remarkable that in this book, Scotland is properly drawn for the 
first time as forming a northern extension of England. It is also remarkable 
for the manner in which the names are printed on the maps, this having been 
done by types after the woodcut had been worked off. This is the first instance 
in which such a method of operation was ever adopted.

The most remarkable of the early Ptolemies in its geographical importance. 
It contains two maps which were here j)rinted for the first time, and which 


may undoubtedly be held to represent the cartographical labours of Amerigo 
Vespucci. One of them is the Bydrographia (or " Hyiirographie Portugaise" 
as it is often called), which forms the first of the supplementary maps ; the 
other is ihe Tabula Terre nove, which is the second of that series, and which 
might be thought to contain the New-World portion of the Hydrographia 
engraved on a larger scale and more detailed, but it is really quite a different 
map. Only one map is alluded to in ihe address Ad Lectorein which precedes 
those supplementary maps, and it is said to have been presented to the editors 
more than six years earlier, by Rene Dnke of Lorraine, when they had 
commenced to work on the publication of Ptolemy. The histoiy of the 
edition is prnbaMy to be explained thus. On the publication of Vespucci's 
four voyages early in 1.505. a copy with the dedication altered so as to suit 
the recipient, was sent to King Rene, along with two manuscript maps prepared 
apparently by Vespucci's hand. He delivered the book and the maps to the 
St. Di4 College, and thev produced the Cosmographia of 1507 as a translaiion 
of the Italian text. The maps were reserved to be used for an edition of 
Ptolemy then projected, and the work of engraving was probably begun at 
once, but difficulties arose with regard to the text when they began to edit 
the Latin translation of Htolemy. Finding it necessary to collate it with a 
Greek text, Philesius was sent to Italy. Pico di Mirandola furnished him 
with a Greek MS. for the use of the editors, and sent a highly complimentary 
letter, which is printed at the beginning of the volume, bearing date 1508. 
The labour must have proved enormous and discouraged the editors, for they 
say in the Ad Lectorem that it had gone to sleep six years before in the rocks 
of the Vosges, and was now at last roused inio public ition in Strassburg. 
The words concerning the procurement and the authorship of the map are as 
follows : — " Charta aufem marina quam Hydrographiam vocant per Adniiralcm 
quondam serenissi. Portugalie regis Kerdinandi ceteros denique lustratores 
verissimis peragrationibus lustrata, ministerio Renati, diim vixit, nunc ])ie 
mortui, Ducis illustriss. Lotharingie liberalius prelographati )ni tradita est." 
The blunder either in the name of the king or that of the country has led to 
various interpretations, and the Admiral referred to is generally supposed to 
mean Columbus, but it is more probable that the phrase refers to Vesiaicci, 
wl.o, in 1504, was a sea-captain m the Portuguese service. It is a trifling 
matter, but one of some .'ignificance for the deterniinaiion of this disputed 
point, that in the delineation of Spain, there is no town or port marked except 

The first map or Hydrographia is a general view of the world from 
Cathay on tlie right hand to the New World on the left. The American 
portiim con^ists of the coa^t of South America from the Gulf of Venezuela 
to the port of Cananea (12 degrees North to 25 degrees South latitude — it is 
marked 15 N.L. to 35 S.L). with the islands of Cuba and S. Domingo. 
There are only a few inscriptions, seven in all ; and there is nothing further, 
except the outlines of a small portion of derached coast lying opposite 
Ireland, in the mid-sea, between 50 and 62 degrees N.L. This is evidently 
intended to represent the discoveries of Corte Real. — The second map is the 
Tabula Terre Nove above mentioned. It omits entirely the Corte-real coast 
which appears in the Hydrographia, but extends in S. America to the same 
degree of S.L. as that map. It is lull of names along the sea coast from 
Cabo del Mar Usiano on the north, to about 25 (marked 35) degrees of south 
latitude, where it ends with Rio Cananor (Cananea Bay), and seems to corre- 
spond exactly with the extent claimed by Vespucci as having been explored 
in his four voyages (including also an evidence that Cabral's discovery was 
included). There can be little doubt, notwithstanding the absence ot the 
peninsula of Yucatan (which proves that during the coasting voyaue described 
by Vespucci as his first, the usual hydrographic observations were frequently 
preteriiiiited) that we have in the northern portion a delineation of the Gulf 
of Mexico, the coast and point of FloriHa, and the coast of the Eastern United 
States as far as Cape Hatteras. As for the degrees of latitude they are of 
course monstrously exaggerated. The equator is placed about 5 degrees north 
of its true level both in America and in Africa ; and as the design extends 
northward, the error diminishes on the eastern side of the Atlantic bnt 
increases on the western. Cuba is placed 10 degrees north of it« true 


liititude, and the Cabo del Mar Usiano (Cape Hattex-as) is some 19 degrees 
above its proper place. 

This map— prepared for the engraver by Martinus Waldseemiiller (Hyla- 
comylusi — bears the inscription " Hue terra cum adiacentibus insnlis inventa 
est per Columbum .Jaiuiensem ex mandato Regis Castelle," which appeared 
here for the first time, and was frequently repeated on later maps. Not only 
may the Ptolemy of 1.513 be said to cfmtain the Editio Princeps of the 
Admiral's map, but it would even be correct to describe it as (excluding 
its I'eissue in Schott's second edition of 1.520) the only edition of that 
map, since all the later reproduction.s, except of course modern facsimiles, 
follow the Ptolemy of 1522. Humboldt has put forward an opinion that 
Waldseemiiller executed these maps, and also those which appeared in the 
Ptolemy of 1522 and 1525. A faithful comparison will preclude all supposi- 
tion that the same hand could have been employed in both ; for : Ithough the 
maps of 1522 and 1525, published by Laurentius Frisius, are ostensibly close 
reproductions of those of 1513, yet the difference between them is scientifi- 
cally and critically very great. It can at once be seen that the original maps 
are valuable and authentic documents, while the latter ones are careless and 
inexact imitations, not only without any attempt to improve upon the earlier 
labour, but even omitting some of the names because they were too numerous 
or not sufficiently clear ; blurring, rouu ling, and distorting the coast-outlines. 

On the fly-leaf is pasted an inscription in Latin (dated Sept. 1, 1540), to 
the effect that this book was given by John Faber, Bishop of Vienna, to the 
students of the College of St. Nicholas.

The Luculentissima Descriptio is the second geographical work in which 
the name of America was used to designate the N'5w World. (The first was 
the Cosmographia, which see post in the section " Narratives of Voyagers " 

In some respects the early ideas of Schoner were superior to the later. 
In 1515 he held that "America sive Amerigen novus niundus" was the 
" quarta orbis pars" and an " insula niiriB magniiudinis." He goes on to say 
that " Parias insula " is not a portion of the preceding island, but a special 
great portion of the ^1e^y fourth part of the world. This implies the recognition 
of a new and distinct continent, which he rejects in the late Opusculum. We 
know that by Parias is not meant the gulf and coast of Paria, in South 
America, which Columbus visited in 1499, but the Lariab of Vespucci (mis- 
written or misprinted Pariasin the Cosniographioe Introductio oi 1507), which 
was probably in Guatemala ; and therefore, having regard to the article 
"Brasilife regio," a little further on, we may conclude that Schoner's idea was 
that of a new continent, consisting of three great islands, lying fx'om north- 
west to south-east, Lariab or Parias being the noribernmost, and correspond- 
ing to North America; America sive Amerigen lying in the middle and 
corresponding to Yucatan, Central America, Nicaragua; Brasilia lying 
south-east, and corresponding to South America. In his description of the 
minor islands of the New World, we find Spagnolla. Isabella, etc., and the 
Madeiras. He sums up his chapter by saying. Thus the world is known as 
being of four parts ; the first three parts are continents, that is, terra firma, 
and the fourth an iiland, since on every side it is observed to be surrounded by 
the sea. The word insula, an island, may be taken to mean insular in a 
general sense, but the statement that the insularity was proven, in conjunction 
with the assertion that " modica est distantia ah hac BrasiliaB regione ad 
Mallaquam ubi S. Thomas apostolus martyrio coronatus," is a singular 
circumstance in a book which preceded Magellan's voyage by some years.

The particular value of this tract lies in its excessive rarit}', and the 
fact that it contains the small map with the word " Am." two years before 
the first edition of the Cosmographicus Liber. There is also a section of 
the text with the heading " America '' following similar paragraphs headed 
" Europe," " Asia." " Aphrica," and one with the general heading "Mundi 
in quattuor pai-tes divisio."

This map was also inserted in the Pompouius Mela of 1.522. It is a 
copy of the corresponding map in the 1513 Ptolemy, with a few added 
inscriptions, including the word America on the Southern continent, and 
the name Parias on the land which coasts the Gulf of Mexico. This 
peculiarity is significant as showing where the " Lariab " of Vespucci's first 
voyage was supposed to lie. See note to Schoner, No. 28129.

Apianus was the designer of the map which appeared in the celebrated 
work of Gamers upon Solinus in 1520, and was consequently the first promoter 
of the name America in the long series of maps issued with geographical treatises. 
The Cosmographicus Liber has two small maps, on pages 2 and 63, bearing the 
delineation and title of America, and the fourth chapter of the second part is 
an article devoted entirely to America and Vespucci, ignoiiug the name of 
Columbus. In the seventeenth chapter, " America " is mentioned as an island 
along with Sicilv, Java, and Rhodes.

This map is not a new one, but simply a reproduction of one in the Ptolemy

described on the sheet numbered 28, and the two inner pages of that sheet 
contain a Map of America, or rather of the Western Ocean and Terra Nova,

table of American islands, a description of Peru, which had been recently 
discovered by the Spaniards (the date being fixed as 1530). Moreover, the 
figure of the American continent, in the first of the two small maps, is 
altered and improved.

by 15, coloured and illuininated, momited on thick paper and 
folded in folio form, bds. £10. circa 1530 

This valuable MS. delineates Maritime Europe, with the seas, islands, and 
coasts, thus including the shores of Asia, and to as far south as Cape B'anco 
on the West African coast. It also exhibits the '' Ocean Occidental " with the 
Azores, the Madeiras, and the Canary Islands. The date of the MS. is fixed 
by the cross which appears on both the if- lands of Rhodes and Malta, by which 
it must be c< ncluded that the Knights had but lately removed to the latter 
island ; and by the cross also marked on the isle of Scio, which shows that its 
surrender by the Venetians to the Turks, in 1540, had not yet taken place. 
The double-headed eagle which surmounts the crown over the Spanish arms 
shows that Charles V. was still on the Imperial throne. Special prominence is 
given to the French royal escutcheon, and this with the one French inscription, 
''L'Ocean Occidental," makes it appear that the author was a subject of 
Francis I., although the written part of the maps is almost entirely Italian, 

28142 APIANI (Petri) Universalior cogniti Orbis Tabula, a large Map, 

21| inches by 15^, mounted on linen, unique, £40. 

(Ingolstadii) 1530 
This large chart was produced by Apianus at his private-press in 
Ingolstadt. It exhibits the peculiariiy of a heart-shaped map of the world 
before the appearance ot the well-known map of Oronce Fine, hitherto 
supposed to have been the first of the kind. The French caitographer, though 
only one year later than Apiani, was able to fill his map with a number of 



useful names from the reports of recent discoverr, but his theory of the 
identity between China and the lands lying north-west of Florida vitiated all 
his work ; while Apianns had evidently learned from Vespucci to abandon the 
old hallucinaticjn of Columbus. 

This lar^e and elaborate world-map was prepared by Apianus as an 
improvement on that which appeared in the Solinus of 1520. It is largely 
based on the discovery of Vespucci, and in the upper margin, there are two 
smaller world-maps exhibiting comparatively the extent of the globe according 
to the " t (bservatio Ptolem." and the " Observatio Vespu." In the large map 
itself, the coasts of Greenland coalesce with those of Labrador, and the Gulf of 
St. Lawrence is plainly indicated. South of the gulf, the northern limit ot the 
contmental shore reaches to about 38 degrees N.L. (marked 40), indicating 
the north-westwardly recession of the coast from the point of C. Hatteras 
towards Chesapeake Bay. The line of land is continued below along the 
shores of Carolina, Georgia, Florida, round Cape Sable, with the entire 
coast of the Mexican Gulf, Mexico, Yucatan, Homiuras, Central America, 
Venezuela, Guiana, Brazil, till it fades into an indistinct and unfinished 
outlme at about 45 dejirees S L. The island of Cuba is marked Isabella, while 
the land of Central America bears the name of " Terra de Cuba." From the 
Gulf of Maracaibo to that of Paria, the coast is marked with the words, " lUi 
8ut sub Carolo Rom. Jmperatore." From the mouth of the Amazon, that is 
from about 5 degrees S.L., the coast line proceeds southwardly with but 
nncertam resemblance to the reality. We find the words " Terra Nova " and 
''Hie reperiuntur P*ittaci rubri," and "Bri>ilici sive Paragalli," this last 
inscription appearing opposite tUe embouchure of a river which is plainly 
meant for Kio Janeiro, and falls into the ocean at 2.3 degrees S.L. At 30 
degrees S.L. the line is broken by a very broad strait, gulf, or river-month, 
which evidently represents the mouth of La Plata. Below it the omline runs 
a considerable distance further to the south, but without any distinctness, 
broken off aitosrether at 46 S.L. 
The map is rledica'ed to Leonardus ab Fck and bears his arms.

An opuscule of no slight interest to the American collector. It is the 
first expression in print of an idea that has led to long and bitter contro- 
versy- nan^ely, that Vespucci himself bestowed the name of America upon 
the New World. Otherwise it is more curious than valuable, as for instance, 
when he discusses the idea of the revolution of the earth round the sun, and 
dismisses it as erroneous. His ideas concerning the New World had under- 
gone some change from the time when he wrote ihs Lucule-ntissima Descriptio. 
He describes the land found by Vespucci as the continent of Upper India, 
citing the voyage of Magellan as a proof ; and then proceeds to mention the 
Bachalaos, Florida, Mexico, Darien, Uraba, and Canibalia as portion of it. 
The islands of_ the Moluccas lay on the further side of it, the islands of 
Yucatan, Jamaica, Hispaniola, and Cuba on the hither side ; while he chides 
Columbus and Vespucci for having considered the mainland they discovered 
to be an island. His last chapter is on Brasilia. The article is accompanied 
by two astronomical tracts of Schoner : Abrusahk Azarcheles Saphea 
recentiores doctrinse, a Schonero emendatae 1534; loannis de Monteregio 
Problemata Sapheup, cum praef. Schoneri, 1534; and a treatise "De situ

Rare, all the coj)ies that could be obtained having been ordered to be 
burned by Calvin It is the most famous edition in the entire series of 
Pto emies, in consequtnce of the paragraph that caused the martyrdom of 
Servetus. This paragraph is alluded to by Ebert, Hrunet, Harrisse, and 
others, but all of them make the same mistake with regard to its position 
in the book. It appears on the map of Palestine in the second series, 
and the fault lay in accusing the " Biblici libri"' of " injuria aut jactantia 
pura ;" but, of course, Servetus was not the author of the passage, having 
merely repiinted it from the editions of 152^; and 1.52.'). Indeed the labours 
of Servetus were not very heavy ; he did but reprint those editions, with a 
few additions, a few omi-isions, and a total substitution of text only in the 
desciiptions of France, Spain, (iermany, and Italy. Here, Servetus expresses 
freely his (»wn opinions and prejudices, which differ extremely from those 
of his prededessor. With regard to Germany, he quotes " producit Hungaria 
boves, Bavaria sues, Franconia cepas rapas et glycerhisiam, Suevia mereirices, 
Boemia hereticos, Bavaria iterum fures, Helvetia carnifices bubsequas, 
Westialia fallaces, tota denique Germania ac totus septemirio gulones et 
potatores." To the identical account of Columbus which appeared in the 
editions of 1522 and 152.5, Servetus has appended a few remarkable words 
concerning the absurdity of putting the claims of Americus in precedence 
to those of the real discoverer. The maps are the same as those in the 
edition of 1525.

The parent edition of a new series of Ptolemies. Miinster, the famous 
cosmographer, edited it, re-designing the maps, according to the lights of 
fresh discovery, and thenceforward each new edition has followed or improved 
upon his work. In the first Map — Typus Universalis — the continent of 
America is divided into three parts: Francisca (Canada); Terra Florida, 
with Temistitan (Mexico) which is broken off from Florida by the circimi- 
ference line of the circle, and consequently appears on the extreme right in 
the Asiatic half of the globe ; and America seu insula Brasilii {South 
America.) Maps 2-28 contain the series of Ptolemy's ancient maps, as 
designed by Miinster. Then follow the twenty maps of the modern world, 
of which the seventeenth contains the Novus Orbis, that is, North and South 
America, extending from Labrador to Tierra del Fuego. Naturally great 
portion of the outline is conjectural, and there are no details. 

The general representation of the New World is one of the earliest printfd 
maps in which the entire continent appears, with the western outlines of the 
Pacific coast of S. America in fairly accurate design.

The Spanish original having been printed in 1545, the map may be taken 
to represent the results of Spanish discovery in 1540, Pedro de Medina having 
been the otficial examiner of Pilots. It is interesting as showing the mouth of 
the Spirito Santo (the Mi^sissippi) and the lands aronnd the River and Gulf of 
St. Laurence. In the latter case Newfoundland has not yet become an island, 
the straits of Belle-isle being still unknown, and only a deep inlet divides it 
from Labrador. The River Saguenay is shown at its entry into the Sr. 
Laui'ence, which is a remarkable feature in so early a map.

colours, heightened loith gold, every page surrounded 
hy an arabesque harder in gold, red morocco extra, 
gilt edges, hy Petit, £50. (? Venice ahout 1550) 

This is a Hydrographic Atlas of the World, of extreme 
importance to American students, as it is perhaps the only set 
of maps (besides the celebrated Eibero MS. chart of 1527), 
showing, by what is absolute proof, that the explorations of 
Estevam Gomez are depicted from original designs. On the 
second last map we find two inscriptions which are decisive on 
the point. On one of the Mauritius islands there are the words 
" i. discubrio Esteua Comes," and on the American continent, 
in the region which afterwards became Pennsylvania, there is a 
similar record, " tera che discobrio Stevan Comes." (This 
second inscription is repeated in the same locality on the last 
map.) Now, there is very little known about Estevtin Gomes 
beyond the facts that he stai'ted with Magellan as pilot, joined 
the Spanish mutineers against his leader, and returned to Spain 
in the ship San Antonio which deserted the Victoria, just as it 
was about to enter the famous strait ; and that afterwards in 
1525 he was sent to explore the coasts north of Florida. In the 
two inscriptions above quoted, one referring to a place ofE the 
east of Africa, and the year 1505 or 1506, the other relating to 
the region of the United States and the year 1525 or 1526, we 
find the discoveries of Gomes recorded on a single map, which 
is pi'obably unique in this respect. We may therefore draw^ the 
safe conclusion that Gomes's own charts were in the hands of 


the chartographer. The date of the lattei''s work is evident 
from the nature of the maps ; Japan is still the old island of 
Marco Polo, Yucatan is still an island, and the -svestern coast 
line of South America is a blank from about the region of Lima 
to the vicinity of Magellan's Straits. We can have no doubt 
therefore that the Atlas was compiled about 1545, or between 
1545 and 1550. California is delineated as a peninsula with 
the " Mare Vermiglio " between it and the mainland. BotTi the 
American coasts are thickly studded with names, and the 
eastern outline of North America is given with tolei'able 
accuracy, all the way from Mexico to Labrador, marking the 
Rio del Spirito Santo (Mississippi) and the Gulf of St. Laurence 
(v. hich is without a name). "Terra di Bacalaos " is marked, 
not on Newfoundland, but on Labrador. One of the islands in 
that gulf is marked " I. de la Fortuna." The names on the 
coast between the point of Florida and " Tera de Bertoni " are 
" Aguarda ; Tera di Licenciados ; Aillon ; Bio di S. Zuan ; C. di 
S.Maria; vila di Christoval ; vila di S.Antoni; n. verde ; rio 
di hona mad^e ; S. Ziiane Batista ; Montanas ; C di mucesilas (?); 
tera che discohrio Stevan Comes ; C. diloverta (?)."

extreme south of South America. The plans of Venice and 
Genoa, which are both given in small pictures, surmounted by 
the flags of the two republics, in their places on the map of 
Italy, lead us to infer that a man connected with both cities was 
■ the chartographer. Agnese was such.

The first large map is a mappemonde rednced fnin the large map of 
1534. and signed " Tiguri HVE MDXLVI." It is heart-sh.ape and differs 
slightly from that by aiding the islands of Cuba and Hispaniola. and changing

the words " Terra de Cuba," which in the former appeared on the North 
American continental shore to " Parias." It also adds the islands of the 
Indian Ocean, including a large one which may represent " Java Major " or 
the rhilippines, and inserts another island south of Madagascar.

The American majis in this edition have an original value ; having been 
constructed according to the latest results of exploration so far as Gastaldo 
was able to utilize them. Even his errors have significance, and deserve 
investigation. The map of South America is the first which contains anything 
like a correct drawing of the whole coast of that continent, and which gives 
the names of the cities of Cuzco and Quito, with the full length of the 
Amazon from its mouth to its sources south of Quito. It is true that the 
relative positions of the towns are incorrect, and that Quito and the Amazon 
sources lie one at 26 and the other at 35 degrees S. L., but the fact that they 
are included with many names of places that had not been given before, give 
this work a marked position in the Ptolemy series.

The mappemonde of Caspar Vopelius is rarely found with this book, in 
which it was first published at Milan in 1556. The preliminary leaves were 
reprinted in 1570 at Venice ; otherwise there is no difference between the two 
editions. The map is similar in projection to that used by Vadianus, but 
there are differences in detail. It is not exactly as it was drawn by Vopelius ; 
at least, in a printed notice at ilie bottom of the map Girava states that he 
had used Vopelius's work as the basis of his own.

Antv. 1584 
This edition comprises 111 sheets of maps, being more than double the num- 


ber of t^oscin the first issue of the work in 1570, and twenty-three more than 
the number of the edition in 1580. The map of China is dated 1584, and the 
text on the back of it contains two Chinese words in the Chinese character; 
80 that this Atlas is really the first European book in which Chinese 
Chakacters APPEAREn, being one year earlier than the work on China pub- 
lished by Gonzalez de Mendoza, at Rome, in 1585, to which the priority has 
hitherto been attributed. In the text to the map of Valentia, there is a singular 
statement made, which is wholly altered in the later editions. It is ihis : " Ager 
hnjus urbis (Valentice) ubique a Mauris colitur . . . Avorumqne prosa- 
piam lingua Arabica et religione Mahumetana palam et vulgo profitentur in 
hunc usque diem ; conniventibus Rege et Inquisitione." This startling charge 
appears only in this edition, for in the later ones it is changed as follows : 
"Ager hujus urbis a genre e Mauris oriunda et paternum sive avitum sermonem 
ac fere vitte morem adhuc retinente colitur."

ThLS work is apparently unknown to most of the writers on American 
bibh'ography. The large folding map of the world contains a map of 
America, in which the extreme north-w est comer bears the words " India 
oiientalis." The author seems to have been one of the latest geographers 
who endeavoui'ed to reconcile the new discoveries with the original theories. 
There are some chapters specially devoted to a description of the New 
A\ orkl. The author was a ilaltese by birth, but resided at Katisbou as a 
c uinianiler of the order of St. John. A piece of verse at the end is 
addressed to him by Edmund Hollyng, m.d., an Englishman, in Ingolstadt.

Of the twenty-five copies printed, only one remains for sale. 

Of the original Map I can only trace the existence of four copies, one 
of which is to be seen in the Grenville copy of Hakluyt, 3 vols. It is by far 
the finest Chartographical labour which appeared from the epoch of the 
discovery of America down to the time of D'Anville — that is for more than 
two hundred years. Hakluyt intended to insert this map (which must have 
been already undertaken by Mollineux) in the work published in 1589, but 
it was not of course ready, and some copies were sent out with a substituted 
engraving, which is called in the preface " one of the best generall mappes 
of the world." The latter map was simply a re-engraving from the latest 
mappemonde of Ortelius (1588); and identical with the one which was regu- 
larly published in the English edition of Linschoten's Travels; having 
therefore no original value or interest. 

The engraver of the great Map, or — as Hakluyt calls it — Terrestrial 
Globe, was "Mr. Emmeric Mollineux of Lambeth, a rare gentleman in his 
profession, heing therein for divers years greatly supported by the purse and 
liberality of the worshipful merchant, Mr. William Sanderson." Every 
geographical discovery down to the year 1598 appears recorded in his map, 
which, after ten years' labour, was perhaps not quite ready even for insertion 
in most of the copies of the 1598 edition.

whom William Browne of the Pastoralls receives especial praise. Carpenter 
does not spare his own rhyming throughout the book. He notices, on p. 276 
of Vol. 11., the variation brought about by climate in both animal and 
vegetable growth, instancing the ex[>erience of '■ uur Virginian colony."

This has the rare map of Virginia and New England, engraved by Ralph 
Hall in 1636, which is very seldom seen in the book. If the engraving could 
have been done in time, the sheet would have taken its place with the rest, 
impressed opposite the text to Virginia, and a rarity would have been lost 
to the American collector. However, the publishers filled up the blank with 
a duplicate of the New iSpain Map, this being mentioned in the Errata with a 
statement that a correct map of New England was then being prepared in 
America, which would be published on its arrival in England. A change of 
owners took place two years afterwards, and the frontispiece was re-engraved, 
having Sparke's name alone, with 'Second Edytion' added, and the date 
changed. In some of these copies the new Map was inserted. The stock 
thus treated was however very small, as the existence of this valuable piece of 
Map-making is not mentioned in any of the books of reference where one 
might expect to find it.

Tlie Arcano comprises Portolani and Charts by English and other 
pilots, which were never published elsewhere ; and to American collectors it 
should ])rove of the highest interest. The maps which depict Virginia, New 
Netherlands, anil New England, are amongst tlic most important of these : 
they are fuller and upon a larger scale than, while at the same time they are 
totally dislinci from, those of Laet, Janssou, Mercator, Visscher, the lieschry- 



ving of 1651, Van Looii, tmd Douckers. It is very strange, upon this 
account, that the Arcano is omitted by Asher in his Bibliogra'phical Essay, 
and that the attention of so painstaking a student should not have been 
drawn to Dudley's work. The above second edition was prepared from the 
author's corrected copy of the ttrst (1646) ; and as he died in 1639, his maps 
of those parts of America must be considered to take precedence of all 
those mentioned by Asher, except the 1630 edition of Laet. In fact, it is 
uncertain whether they might not claim priority even over Laet ; for the 
enyraver Lncini mentions that he himself had been kept secluded in an 
obscure village of Tuscany for twelve years, working incessantly at the 
plates. Asher's Essay, so elaborate in its description of the various early 
maps and charts, their variations, and their mutual dependence or independence, 
becomes very defective through its omission of the Arcano. Again the large 
scale of the maps of California and Mew Albion, and the number of names 
which crowd the coast-line below and above Cape Mendocino, with the 
marginal observations upon the errors of latitude made by previous writers, 
show conclusively the scientific character and importance of Dudley's work. 
A similar remark will apply to the delineations of the newly-discovered lands 
of Australia, and the northern coasts of New Holland (which he mistakenly 
calls Mew Guinea, while leaving to that island its other name Papua). 

One of the i'ortolans is by Abraham Kendal, the master of Dudley's 
flag-ship, when the latter (just before Kaleigh made his similar attempt) fitted 
out an expedition in 1594-95 to explore the land of Eldorado ; during which 
he visited Trinidad and some other islands, Guyana, the issues of the Orinoco, 
etc. He took some useful notes, made lists of native words, thrashed some 
Spanish ships, and escaped some great dangers in this expedition, a daring 
one for a young man of 21 — but returned without booty. The numerous 
Vocabularies of savage languages which the Arcano contains are of consider- 
able interest. Abraham Kendal, whose name is unknown to the book-makers, 
died at Portobello, in Central America, in 1597, in Drake's service, leaving 
behind him the plans and papers of which Dudley made good use.

An extremely valuable collection of Charts by a Dutch Hydrographer or 
Seaman, which must be important even at the present time. It comprises 
4 maps of islands, 2 of Cape of Good Hope, view of Table Bay, 11 maps of 
Arabia, Persian Gulf, etc., 8 of Siam, Tonkin, China, etc., 25 of Malacca and 
the islands of the Indian Ocean, with Formosa and Japan.

frontispiece and 45 double maps, all carefully coloured, etc. 
vellum, calf bach, £7. Amst. 1661 

A very valuable work, unmentioned by Asher in his excellent Biblio- 
graphy of the Atlases and Maps relating to the New Netherlands, although 
its North American charts are different from the Atlases and Charts examined 
by him. It is unquestionably the best Atlas representing the coasts of the 
now United States, published up to that time, and proves that the Brothers 
Van Loon were accurate and painstaking geographers. Some of the maps 
are of course reproductions from the great Atlases of Blaeu, Laet, and Jansson, 
and the name of the latter appears occasionally, but the differences which 
make the book important are to be found in the delineations of regions which 
were daily becoming better known, such as the European colonies in North 
America. This Atlas seems to be the original, or earliest existing form of 
a series of Dutch maps mentioned by Asher, to which belongs even the 
Chartbook of Pieter Goos. His statement that Goos's maps were different 
from and superior to all anterior works of the kind, sufiices to fix the value of 
the Atlas of Van Loon.

Basil Ringrose, the author of this valuable MS., was one of the 
Buccaneers, and joint author with Esquemeling of the History of their 
Exploits. He was also the companion of Captain Sharp, in his voyage for 
the discoveiy of a New Passage into the South Sea (1679-81), and the 
draughts in the above volume are partly the results of his personal observation. 

Tlie ingenious Kingrose was killed February, 1686, by the Spaniards 
whilst the Buccaneers, commanded by Captain Swan, were carelessly removing 
their booty from Santa Fecaque, a Spanish-American town on the Pacific 
Coast which they had taken.

ings, Islands, Soundings, Rocks and Daingers in the

Original Drawings, charts and views coloured^ old 
red morocco^ gilt edges, loith letters S.8.G. {South Sea 
Company) in gold on front cover^ £72. aboict 1690 

This extremely valuable and important collection of coloured 
charts appears to have been purchased by Sir James Bateman, for 
the South Sea Company, from Wm. Hill, whose autograph letter 
dated 3rd Dec. 1711, respecting the work, is prefixed. In that 
letter the book is thus described : " There is a large laborious 
ornamentall guilt booke of mine with, a redd cover in your OflBce 
att Broadstreete, called the South Sea Waggoner, full of curious 
Mapps and Platts of ye South Seas, being ye long expei'ience of 
ye FAMOUS BucKANERE Capt. Barth. Sharpe and of an antient 
French Captain that hee tooke with his Booke, Mapps and 
Papers, who used those seas 70 yeares, being all in the said 
Booke composed and depicted by one Captain William Hack 
deceased, of whom I about 18 years ago purchased the said 
booke and paid him £70 for ye same &c." 

Captain Hack seems to have been outwitb Captain Sharpe; 
and interesting facts concerning the cruises of Sharpe and others 
are written here and there on the margins of the charts, by 
which the work known as the History of the Buccaneers may 
be valuably illustrated and supplemented. Hack published in 
1699 a collection of Voyages, which was incorporated in the 
later editions of the History of the Buccaneers, but the maps in 
the above volume were never published.

side of South America, coloured; old calf, lettered " Coasts of 
South Sea," £5. ' 1704 

A carefully executed and valuable work, comprising all previously existing 
information and the results of the latest discoveries down lo 1701. It seems 
to be the map of some scientific Buccaneer's voyage, and was probably prepared 
for the information of the South Sea Company. The last map is a general 
one, being a reducti'in of the entire set of charts on a single sheet.

" The most splendid collection of charts, plans and views, ever published. 
It was executed at the expense of the British Government for the use of the 
British Navy, and no expense appears to have been spared in the execution, in 
order to render it a monument worthy of the nation." 

The work is divided as follows : Vol. I, Sea coast of Nova Scotia ; 
Vol. II, pt. 1, Charts of the coast and haibours in the gulf and river of 
St. Lawrence ; pt. 2, Charts of the c">ast and harbours of New England ; 
pt. 3, Charts of several harbours and divers parts of the coast of North 
America, from New York south-westwards to the Gulf of Mexico. 

Vol. I is, according to the list of contents, perfect : Vol. II. contains no 
list of contents, and so cannot be warranted complete. It has been compared, 
however, with another copy, to which we have had access, and contains seven 
maps more than that copy. The present copy also contains six more leaves 
than that described by 0. Rich (Bibl. Americana Nova, 1846, pp. 248-51), and 
is thus most probably perfect.

Brunet's collation is erroneous in giving 87 leaves as the contents of the 
first part, instead of 88 (the last two leaves being each numbered 87). The 
second part is Jacques de Migrode's translation of the Destruccion de las 
Indias, filled up with extracts from some others of the Tratados, and contains 
the same seventeen engravings as appeared in the Frankfort Narratio of 1598. 
The engravings in the first part are of European cruelties.

This is the genuine best edition of the work, edited by the learned 
Baecia, which, although in preparation since 1725, did not appear till 1729. 
Another similar edition, in 4 vols, folio, with portraits, was brought out at 
Antwerp, in 1728, one year previously, in haste to forestall the work which 
Barcia had in hand, but of course it is an inferior production, disfigured 
■with faults, and omitting the fourteen maps which are unavoidably necessaiy 
for the understanding of the descripcion. It contains also so-called portraits 
of the Incas of Peru, which are merely copies of De Bry's fictitious engrav- 
ings, while Barcia's edition gives the genuine designs which Herrera himself 
had used after the native pictures.

23321 the same, sm. folio, with a fine portrait of Le Maire, 

fine tall clean copy, in vellum covered with leather, from the 
Sunderland library, £6. 6s 1622 

It is erroneously stated in the " American Nuggets" that Barcia, in the 
preface to his edition of Herrera, repudiates the edition by Coljin as full of 
errors. The fact is, that Barcia makes nowhere any remark prejudicial to 
the above publication of 1622, which certainly contains a faithful translation 
of the descripcion of Herrera, and an equally faithful reproduction of the 
fourteen authentic maps. Barcia's remark had reference only to the Amsterdam 
edition of 1721. The volume is highly valuable as containing the first edition 
of the genuine Voyage of Le Maire (also issued in Latin and Dutch in the 


same year) as distinguished from that which had been, through the Dutch 
India Company's jealousy of Le Maii-e, published by Blaeu under the name 
of Cornelius Schouten, who had commanded one of Le Maire's vessels. It 
concludes with the Spanish and English voyages to Magellan's Straits and 
the descriptions of America given by Ordonez de Cevallos and Bertius. 

The portrait of Le Maire is not mentioned by Brunet, Graesse, Leclerc, 
or in the " Nuggets," and I find no record of any copy containing it. The 
last four pages of the first Part contain a Vocabulary of the language of 
the Solomon Isles.

It is a great histoi'ical work, indispensable to tlie student 
of Spanish affairs in America after the conquest, notwith- 
standing the charges made by Bernal Diaz against Gomara of 
occasional inaccuracy. The dedication to Charles V begins 
with these remarkable words : " The greatest event which has 
happened since the creation of the world (leaving aside the 
incarnation and death of Him who created it) is the discovery 
of the Indies." 

Gomara prefixes a curious address to intending translators, 
warning them to be accurate and to measure the full significance 
of the pregnant Spanish phrases, also to pay special attention to 
proper names. He further declares that he is writing the book 
in Latin, so that the translators may take no trouble in that 
language. His Latin version has never appeared. 

The two woodcut leaves preceding the text, containing 
maps, one of the western and the other op the eastern 
Hemisphere, seem to have survived only in these two 
COPIES, yet the book is imperfect without them ; and the author 
in his address "a los Impresores," by whom he meant future 
reprinters of his work, begged them to omit nothing which he 
had taken care to insert in this original edition, maiormente las 
tahlas de la tierra. It was this warning which induced Bellero 
in Antwerp to issue a small Traga dela Tierra with his edition of 
1554, but that is also a rare map now. The difference between 
Bellero's map and Gomara's proves that the Spanish Govern- 
ment had effectually suppressed the latter, and that the 
Antwerp publisher was obliged to have a new design prepared, 
which is in some respects decidedly inferior to the original in 
geographical accuracy. 

The Chronica del Peru {First Edition) of Cie^a de Leon is 
also extremely rare. During the last thirty years I have only 
met with one other copy, and that an imperfect one. The 
translator of this work for the Hakluyt Society says in his 
preface, that of this edition Lord Stewart de Rothsay's copy was 
the only one known to him. See also under Discovery of Peru

The statement on the title of "translated by Chimalpain" is merely 
parenthetical. Bustamante when he had in his hands the MS. from which he 
printed the book, supposed it to be an original work by Chimalpain, but 
afterwards discovered that this Mexican, who flourished at the beginning of 
tlie seventeenth century, had only based his history (in Mexican) on Gomara, 
whicii accounted for the resemblance between it and the transcript of the 
Spanish original which had fallen into Bustamante's hands. The editor's 
notes are, however, copious and valuable.

The name of Lopez de Gomara is nowhere mentioned by the worthy 
Mr. Nicholas, whose own name is signed in full at the end of the Epistle 
Dedicatory. This first edition is very rare, most American collectors having 
to be satisfied with the second edition of 1596, which is the one described by 
Collier in his " Bibliographical Account." The latter writer en-s in stating that 
the two leaves containing the " Address to the Header '' and Stephen Gosson's 
verses were first added in the 1596 volume : they are here in the original 
edition. Collier is also mistaken in asserting that the " auncient gentleman" 
of the Epistle Dedicatory, with whom Nicholas had an interesting conversation, 
was identical with Agustin de Zarate, the historian of Peru.

Very rare first edition of all that was originally published (the edition 
printed by the Spanish Academy a few years ago being the only complete

at the end of the first part, and was printed at the same time, bears the 
autograph signature of the author, in this form — " Kmo. & illmo. Senor las 
manos de V. S. Rma. besa Go. Fernandez de Oujedo." The twentieth book 
(which is the first of part II), published separately at Valladolid in 1557 mas 
not finished in consequence of the author's death. It is excessively rare.

not appear, nor in any but one of the recent catalogues of Americana. The

Valencia, 1607 
Very kare. Although two copies are here described, no other has 
appeared in the public sales for the last twenty years, the reprint of 1729 
being apjiarently the only form of the work which was attainable by most of 
the collectors of Americana. Garcia's opinion, as opposed to the special 
theories of other writers, was that the American Indians drew their origin 
from various races of the old world, including Chinese and Tatars. But all 
his learning on this subject is of less value than the positive facts concerning 
the native tribes, which he drew partly from his own experiences in the New 
World, and partly from a MS. work by Juan de Vetanzos (one of the com- 
panions of I'izarro, and a man specially skilled in the native languages), which 
was in the possession of Garcia, and which has never been published. — The 
libro ultimo of Garcia's work contains the native Indian accounts of their 
origin, and is divided into sections which treat separately the various distinct 
tribes of Mexico and Peru.

The first printed authentic exposition of the history of the early Norse 
Settlements in America, and therefore a book of remarkable interest to the 
American collector. The Antiquitates Americance in which Rafn has since 
re-asserted and confirmed the statements of Torfseus, established the fact that 
Norsemen, about the end of the tenth century, discovered and for about three 
centuries colonized a portion of the New England States. The colony perished 
at length for want of unmigration, and the occurrences fell into oblivion ; for 
although they are referred to in the Chronicle of Adam of Bremen (1072), 
which was first published in 1579, neither the old Chronicler nor his sixteenth- 
century readers knew to what part of the world the events had reference.

history of Norse navigation and that of the Norse colonies in America. The 
first map was designed by Bishop Gudbrand Thorlakssen, in 1606, and shows 
Labrador; the second by Sigurd Stephansen, in 1570, exhibiting all the 
Norse-lands in America ; the third by Jonas Gudmund. about 1640, is 
similarly extensive ; the fourth is by Theodor Thorlakssen, in 1668; and the 
fifth is by Torfseus himself.

An important historical work by the royal chronicler of Joam I of Portu-

Portuguese in 1415 — the first step in that series of expeditions which led to 
the Voyage round the Cape and the discovery of America. The capture and 
annexation of Ceuta are events that belong to the biography of " Prince 
Henry the Navigator." The Chronicle was printed for the first time in 1792, 
by Correa da Serra. The present MS. was transcribed about 1620 from a 
copy made in 1470, in the house of the Archpriest of Lisbon, by Joam

Auguste, E. Oglin et Jeo. Nadler, 1508 

On the reverse of the first leaf, in a letter to Jacobus Philomusus [Locher] 
dated 20 May, 1506, we find the words of which the following is a translation 
— "I make however no mention of the discovered islands, but you may 
examine the two little tracts (which I send you herewith) of Cristofer Colom, 
the discoverer of the same, and of Albericus Vespucius concerning the 
new discovered world (to both of whom our age is most largely indebted)." 
This means that the Epistola of Columbus (1493) and the Epistola of 
Vespucci (1503), accompanied Stamler's letter ; and its chief significance lies 
in the apparent assignment of equal eminence to the two Italians whose names 
are imperishably associated with the New World.

facta, folio, Editio Princeps of one of the early hooJcs recording the 
Discovery of America, with the bookplate of Bilihaldus Pirchheimer, 
bds. £5. Mediolani, Jac. Ferrarius, 1509 

On thereverse of sig. llii. in lib. vii, the discovery by Christopher Columbus 
of a way to the Indies, shorter than any known before, is recorded (although 
with the mistake that the voyage had been accomplished in thirty-one days). 

Fulgosus states that this new way was much easier, shorter, and better 
than the long and dangerous voyage roimd the Cape and through the Indian 
Ocean, by which Vasco da Gama had sought the same regions. 

In spite of its errors, this constitutes an interesting and very early notice 
of the two most important voyages in the long annals of Geographical 

The Invention of Typography by " Contembergns Argentinensis " is also 
related, with an insinuation that the inventor had been directly inspired by 
God. By this wonderful art, he says that the great writers of ancient days 
may be said to have begun their existence in 1440.

Decade (in the edition of 15.30, Ahala") " nunc primum Data et cxcusa," a 
phrase which signifies now first published and printed, not (as Eden rendered 
it) " now first set forth and examined." We must assume that it was jirinted 
without the knowledge and consent of Peter Martyr, — a conjecture 
strengthened by the fact that the text is addressed to the F<>pe, while the 
dedication (hy the printer) is made to Joannes CateujEus, the physician of' 
Margaret of Austria, and the title-page absurdly states that it was to tlie 
princess herself.

Vert rare. It was republished in 1847 by Ribadeneyra, who then 
added the second and third parts, which had never before been printed. It is 
a versified history of the discovery of America and of the deeds of heroism 
performed by Spanish leaders during the sixty years that followed the event. 
The metrical form employed is that of Tasso's Gerusalemmc, but the spirit 
of poetry has token refuge elsewhere. Castellanos had been himself one of 
the conquistador es, and spent, as he says, the best part of his life in the New 
World. Conse<iuently his work, originally written in prose, but versified by 
himself during the ten years that preceded its [ublication, possesses historical 
value of no ordinary kind.

This volume only reaches to the year 1500, but the Prologo contains nn 
admirable critical review of the various writers on the subject. The Spanish 
Government prohibited the continuation of the work as being too enli>:htened 
and truthful. Bustamante, whose anti-Spanish prejudices and peculiarities 
are well known, acknowledges in Muiioz the most faithful, careful, and 
accurate historian of the New World.

The discovery of Brazil (on the 27 June, 1499, before Pinzon and before 
Cabral) in Vespucci's second voyage, seems to receive some confirmation in 
the form of the sentence- in which King J^manuel (letter to the King of Castile 
in 1505) mentions the reputed discovery by Cabral of the land of Santa Cruz.

Only twenty. five copies printed, not for sale. Of the original only three 
copies are in existence. 

The words in which the King notices the discovery of Brazil by Cabral 
seem to imply that, notwithstanding the use of the word " scoperseno," he 
knew that there had been an anterior discovery by another. The sentence 
may be translated thas — Navigating past Cape Verde they discovered a land 
newly come to the knowledge of this our Europe : to which land he applied the 
name oj Santa Cruz . . . others call it Tei-ra Xova or Alundo Novo.

througliout with red ink, fine copy, bound in calf by an English 
binder, with gilt ornaments of Lyonese styles on the sides and on 
the back, gilt edges, £80. Lixboa, loam de Barreyra, 1557 

The binding was executed in London towards the end of the sixteenth 
centnry. Excessively rare — so rare indeed that there is no copy in the 
British Museum, and the Hakluyt Society editor of Alboquerque's com- 
mentaries was obliged to make his translation from the reprint of 1574 (in the 
Grenville library). The Royal Library at Dresden contains a copy of the first 
edition of 1557, and there was one in the bookseller Thorpe's possession about 
fifty years ago, which has now disappeared. No others seem to be known. 
The Salva library, like our great national collection, can only exhibit the 
1574 reprint — also a very scarce book, but of a totally different degree of 
rarity and intrinsic value. 

After having completed his well-known Navigations, Hakluyt turned to 
the Portuguese sources which he had not previously had access to, and printed 
in 1601 a translation from Galvao's Descobrimentos — an exceedingly rare 
book printed at Lisbon in 1563. From the age and origin of the binding of 
this volume, we may conjecture that it belonged to him. It is highly probable 
that when he obtained the original Galvao, he also procured the Alboquerque 
— a book which he had evidently known by report only, to judge from the 
manner in which, in his Navigations, he mentions the name of the great 
Portuguese captain.

the others are of the original issue. It is not known whether a title and pre- 
liminary leaves were ever printed for Vol. VI, or whether they perished in the

The second, third, and eighth books are printed in Roman letter, the 
others in Gothic, and there are woodcuts in the second book. It is an event of 
extremely rare occurrence when the whole eight books of the original 
Castanheda are thus found together. Even odd volumes fetch long prices. 
Only one copy of the eight parts is described as having passed through the 
market — which belonged to Colbert, Fleurieu, and Heber, in succession, and 
that was deficient of several leaves in various parts. The present copy is 
perfect with the small exception of the two leaves specified above.

reverse of leaf 40 ; lower margins of last three 11. mended. 
The prel. 11. have some " Tercetos " of Lns de Camoexs, which 
are not included in the poet's works published under his own 

The work of Magalhaes, which is the first history of the 
Portuguese discovery and settlements in Brazil, is so excessively 
rare that it is questionable whether three copies now exist. 
Forty years ago, two copies were known : that in the national 
library of Rio de Janeiro, and the one which had belonged to 
Ternaux. At present, it is said that the Rio copy has dis- 
appeared ; and. we do not know what has become of Ternaux's. 
There is no copy in Portugal, for when a new edition was 
printed at Lisbon in 1858, the impression was made from an 
old MS. copy of the printed book of 1576. 

The work is absolutely necessary to the American student 
as being the earliest printed account of the first fifty years of 
Portuguese rule in Brazil. The natural history and the customs 
of the Indians are treated in succession to the political narrative; 
so that this may be called, with regard to South America, a 
Portuguese counterpart of Oviedo's work on the Spanish Indies.

One of the rarest of Hakluyt's books. The Portuguese original, printed 
at Evora in 1557, is now so rare that there is certain knovvledge of only a 
single perfect copy. The author's name is not known, but it was perhaps 
Alvaro Fernandes, that being the last of the eight names of Elvas men who 
joined the expedition. If this notion be correct, he may have been the same 
person with Alvaro Fernandes, boatswain or lieutenant of the S. Joao galley 
that was Inst near Natal in 1552, nine years after the return of Soto's com- 
panions to Mexico. — Soto's expediiion started in 1538, furnished with as much 
information as had been obtainable from the manuscript llelacion brought by 
Cabeza de Vaca, one of the four survivors of the disastrous voyage of 
Pamphilo de Narvaez to Florida.

These two parts contain a German translation of the second Letter of 
Cortes, and of the third letter preceded by Peter Martyr's fourth Decade. 
Eight chapters added at the end are the most valuable part of the book, and 
consist of a Relation of the affairs of Venezuela by a German, who had gone 
out in the expedition sent by Welser of Augsburg, dated at Caro in 
Venezuela, 1540. This is in six chapters ; the seventh and eighth are letters 
from Oviedo, the historian, dated San Domingo, 1.54.3, chiefly concerning 
Orellana's expedition up the river Maraiion, and the warlike Amazons who 
had opposed him.

Id. £3. 3s Sec. XIX 

The first two of the preceriing works have already been printed in Mexico, 
but the additional notes to Prescott's Mexico, which form the third portion of 
this volume, are no less important and valuable than those which were printed. 
They remained unpublished only because the editor feared that his subscribers 
would not pay for anything beyond the specified number of parts. 

The MS. is all in the handwriting of the late Sr. Ramirez, and it is a 
proof of the conscientiousness and laboriousness of its author, that there are 
but few lines which have not undergone repeated corrections. 

1524 Conquest of Peru : 

28503 [XERES (Francesco de)] Libro primo de la Conqnista del Peru

£21. 1534-35 

From the advertisement at the end of the secondo lihro (which is a 
translation of the Sumario of Oviedo) we learn that a map of the Indies which 
had belonged to Peter Martyr (and which was perhaps the same as he had 
caused to be engraved for the first edition of the Decades) had been drawn 
by Nuno Garcia de Toreno at Seville. From that map and from another, 
also drawn by a Seville pilot, the editor of the Lihro Secondo caused three new 
ones to be compiled and engraved (one general and two special), which were 
issued, or intended to be issued, with this Libro Secondo, but only one copy is 
known which contains them. 

28504 Libro primo de la Conqnista del Peru, sm. 4to. want-

arms ; second leaf, containing a more ample title, with the translator's name 
and arms on the back, dedication, 2 leaves ; text, 58 leaves, bearing signature 
ct to / in eight, and g ten leaves. The statement clearly made on the second 
title concerning the translator and the original work disposes of the confusion 
of Bruuet with regard to the authorship, and of Harrisse on the subject of the 
translator, concerning whose birthplace he quotes hesitatingly the conflicting 
statements of Ternaux and Alcedo. It proves the book to be a version of 
the Spanish one printed at Seville by Perez (in 1534), and that the translator 
was a native of Tudela in Navarre.

£16. 16s Bomce, in cedibus Minitii Calvi, 1524 mense Feb. 

The original publishei-'s second edition of the first published narrative con- 
cerning the first circumnavigation of the globe. Mr. Harrisse has erroneously 
given the first place to the Cologne reprint of Januar)' 1523(-24) and the second 
to Calvus' original edition of November, 152-3, taking the ambiguous date as his 
criterion. We learn from the printer's dedication on the Rome edition, that 
Maximilian (who wrote his narrative in Valladol;d on the 24th of October, 
1522, taking it down from Pigafetta's relation to the Emperor then holding 
bis court there) addressed and sent his letter to Mattha;iis Lang, Cardinal 
Archbishop of Salzburg (and also Bishop ol Cariagena), whom it reached in 
November, while the Cardinal was in Niirnherg attending the Reichstag, to 
which the Pope had sent, as his orator, Francesco Chericati, the Bishop of 
Abnizzo. The latter prelate having been the former protector of I'igafctia 
(whom he had taken with him to Spain in 1510) naturally took more interest 


1519 Discovert of the Straits of Magellax — contitmed. 

in the account of the voyage than did the Cardinal, and begged the latter for 
a copy, which he sent to Kome to Miuitius Calvus for publication. Calvus 
does not say when he received it, but we may presume that the busiiness of the 
Keichstag would occupy the attention of both the ecclesiastics for some time. 
It is certain that he did not print the Epistola till November, 1523, one year 
("abhinc annum ") after the Cardinal had handed the transcript to the Bishop, 
and he then had the license granted which threatened penalties against any one 
else who, uspiam gentium, should within ten years attempt to produce it. 
Notwithstanding this prohibition, the work proved so interesting that 
Hirzhorn reprinted it at Cologne in the following January, 1524, and Calvus 
brought out his above second edition in February of that year. Hirzhorn, or 
Cervicornus, dated his coloiihon with 1523, as was the more customary 
practice, the month being January, and the new year (1524) not supposed lo 
begin till March ; but few persons will believe that his edition preceded by 
ten months the quasi-official publication at Rome which was printed twice 
during three months. Maximilian married into the family of Christoval 
de Haro who had promoted Magellan's expedition.

This relation was written either in Italian or in French, by Pigafetta,

producing the French compendium printed in 1525, and the Latin letter of 
Maximilian in 1523.

It would appear that the Portuguese obtained knowledge of that continent in 
1 601 . about fifteen or sixteen years before the supposed discovery by the Dutch. 
Yet it is nearly certain that the French or the Portuguese were acquainted 
with the existence of Australia as far back as 1530.

The translator's, or perhaps merely editor's, name was F. de Louvcncourt, 
as we fiud it subscribed to the dedualiou to St. Simon Baron de Courtomer. 
He had n ceived the narraiive fn-m the Baron, one of whose tenants had been 
amongst Drake's crew in this voyage, and bis own hi.bour may not have been 
a translation, but merely an iniprovcnunt of t! e French sailor's text. The 
narrative is crrtaiuly not identical with the English '' World Encontpnssed," 

1567-96 Drake's Voyages — continued. 

although it goes over the same details, yet the navigatoi- is always styled 
nostre General, just as he is "our General" in the English account. This 
French Drake was first ])rinte'l in 1613 ; in 1627 it first appeared " augmented 
with the second part," this second part being an account of Asia and Eastern 
Europe, and in nowise connected with Drake. The Alap, however, is the 
most curious feature of the book, and is excessively rare. It was by 
a Dutchman, " Nich. Sj'pe," and exhibits Hova Albion, that is the coast of 
California and nearly all the interior of North America.

Dedicated to King James I, and pressing upon him the desirableness of 
making a settlement in Newfoundland. Lescarbot had urged Louis XIII to 
the same end four years previously, but in vain. Whitbourne was a Devon- 
shire man, and served against the Armada in 1588, in a ship of his own. He 
had already made a voyage to Newfoundland about 1580. He met Sir 
Humphrey Gilbert at St. John's a few years later, and frequently returned to 
the same shores afterwards. Pages 73 to the end consist of " A Loving 
Invitation to all his Majesty's subjects," and letters from some of the few 
planters already settled in the country.

He planted Newfoundland with Welshmen, spent many years there, and 
endeavoured in this whimsical book to encourage fresh immigration. More 
than half the work is a fantastic discussion on manners and customs, in which 
a number of Shakespearean illustrations may be sought for. In the third book 
we find mention of many famous English navigators, with reasons for praising 
or blaming their proceedings. Sir Thomas Button is censured for his lack of 
knowledge how to prevent scurvy amongst his sailors.

land, but also the shores of Baffin's Bay and Hudson's Bay, with the islands 
and rivers of those regions. It is useful to compare with the English maps 
of the same period. Two parallel channels are carried right across Greenland 
towards its southern end, so that the lower portion looks like two islands of 
diminishing breadth. Torfaeus praises the accuracy of La Peyrere. " Gallus 
quidam anonymus."

First issue of the first edition, and excessively rare. 


1507 ViCENZA, Fracanzano — continued. 

This work was truly the first Collection of Voyages ever compiled. 
[The Portuguese book, dated 1502, and containing the 
travels of Marco Polo, Hieronymo di S. Stephano, and Nicolo 
Conti together, translated by Valentino Fernandez Aleman, is 
hardly entitled to such a distinction, and it certainly does not 
belong to the Italian abridgment of Peter Martyr's first Decade 
(Libretto de tutta la Navigation) printed at Venice in 1504, and 
here reprinted in the Paesi.] That it is absolutely of the first 
issue, appears from the number of chapters, and from the full 
colophon which ends with " Cum gratia & priuilegio p. ani. x. 
como nella sua Bolla appare : che p. soa del Dominio Veneto no 
ardisca iprimerlo." In some copies, this colophon ends with the 
word "priuilegio," from which we may conclude that they 
belong to a reissue made when the ten years' privilege was nearly 
run out (after the date of the Itinerarium Portugall. 1508). 
The compiler of the work was Fracanzio di Montalboddo or 
" Montalboddo Fracan " as it appears at the heading of 
the dedicatory epistle ; and the contents of the work are as 
follows : — 

Voyages of Cadamosto and Pedro de Cintra, in Portuguese 
service, 1454, 1463, their first publication (Capp. i-l). 

Vasco da Gama's Voyage round the Cape, 1497-1500, its 
first publication (li-lxii). 

Cabral's Voyage, 1500, first publication of the narrative 
concerning the discovery of Brazil (lxiii-lxxxiii). 

Abridgment of Peter Martyr's yet unpublished first Decade, 
containing voyages of Columbus, Alonso Nino, Pinzon, 1492- 
1500, already printed at Venice in 1504 (lxxxiv-CXIIi). 

Vespucci's Letter to Lorenzo di Pier Fr. de Medici, 
retranslated from the printed Latin of 1503 (cxiv-cxxiv). 

Letters of Venetian ambassadors and merchants, dated 
1501-1502, concerning the Portuguese voyages to India, and 
Corte Real's voyage to America — first publication (cxxv-cxxviii). 

Account of India, by loseph of Cranganor (the Indian 
Christian whom Cabral brought from India in 1501), given in 
1502, first publication (cxxix-cxLii). 

As will appear from the preceding detail, the chapters are 
l-CXLii in this first issue of the Paesi. In the second issue, which 
presents the truncated colophon referred to above, another chapter 
(cxLiii) was added giving a translation of King Manoel's letter 
to Pope Julius II concerning his conquest in India (Emanuelis 
Obedientia, etc. printed at Rome in 1505). — Mr. Harrisse says 
that the Cabral Voyage (capp. 63-83 above) was translated 
from King Emanuel's Letter to the King of Castile, printed in 
Italian at Rome and Milan in 1505 ; but this is simply a blunder. 
The American portion was printed for the first time in the Paesi, 
and was evidently derived from the Portuguese report sent home 
from Brazil by Cabral before he proceeded on his eastern course 
— the original report itself being entirely lost.

AQUiLONEM, sm. folio, cicri'ous woodcut map on title-

Excessively rare. The Beckford copy fetched £78. 

This work is a translation into Latin by Archangelus 
Madrignanus, a Cistercian monk, of the famous first edition 
( Vicenza, 1507) of the " Paesi novamente retrovati, et Novo 
Mondo da Alberico Yespntio Florentino intitulato," and ends like 
the first issue of its original with chap. 142. The value of the 
leaves of Index in the Itinerarium Portugallensium, and the 
necessity of possessing them, must be estimated from the fact 
that they give an analysis of the contents together with the 
names of the discoverers, while the text of the book runs on 
from chapter to chapter without distinction. 

The eighth and last preliminary leaf (not including the two 
leaves of Index) ends with a metrical eulogium upon Madrignano 
by Quintianus Stoa. These verses close with a semicolon at the 
bottom of the reverse page, so that many persons have been led to 
think there ought to be some further preliminary matter in 
continuation of the iambics. But the semicolon is simply 
intended for a mark of interrogation, set at the end of a question 
in which the verses are brought to a conclusion and a climax

Excessively rare. This twentieth book is all that was 
originally published of the second part of Oviedo, on account of 
the author's death. It was of especial interest as containing an 
account of the great voyage of Magellan, and of later expeditions 
to the Moluccas. 

There is a woodcut in Oviedo of a coin used in the Moluccas, 
bearing a Chinese inscription — which was the first appearance 
of that language in European works.

Paris, Galliot Du Pre (1516) 
FIRST EDITION of the French translation of the Paesi. 
Brunet and Harrisse have invented a strange theory concerning 
the chronological succession of the editions. The facts are plain. 
This was the original edition, produced by the legitimate 
publisher, and bearing the privilege, dated 1516, -which gave 
him the monopoly. While his privilege ran, no printed edition 
could be issued with a date. Hence the others which exist, 
five or six in number, bear no honestly recorded year of impres- 
sion and have no privilege. Another significant token is the 
fact that in the chapters of Vespucci's third voyage, there are 
three diagrams of stars, bold woodcuts, in Galliot Dupre's 
edition, which were omitted through carelessness by the 
reprinters, notwithstanding the catchwords in the text.

title: xix (? 1519) 
First edition, according to Brunet and Harrisse. — This 
second edition has not the woodcut of stars as mentioned in 
the note to Galliot Dupre's edition. The conclusion it seems 
just to draw from a comparison of the undated editions is this, 
that at least four Paris publishers, Jean Trepperel, Philippe Le 
Noir, Denis Jeannot, Jacques Jannot, reprinted the book at a 
time when it was uncertain whether Dupre's privilege had 
expired, or when the latter was seeking to renew it; and that 
ihej omitted the dates intentionally, — unless, indeed, the Gothic 
figures XIX which appear in the title-page above were intended 
to stand as a date intangible by the law. Brunet, in all such 
cases, of which many are found between 1510 and 1530, held 
that the two Gothic numerals merely indicated the number of 
sheets in the book, but that theory is frequently at fault, while 
there is inherent probability in nearly every instance in which a 
chronological value is given them.

This book, which, may be called the first French Collection 
of Voyages, has been very badly described by Mr. Harrisse. 
The anonymous editor dedicates the Extraict, which is a French 
abridgment of Peter Martyr's first three Decades made before 
the publication of the entire eight in 1530, to Charles, Due 
d' Angouleme. The Narrations are dedicated, not to Margaret of 
Austria, but to Margaret of France. The first is an abridg- 
ment of the fourth Decade printed at Basil in 1521. The 
second and third are draTi-n from the second and third Cortes 
letters, printed in Latin at Niirnberg in 1524. Consequently the 
" Extraict " must be held to take precedence of Grynseus, as the 
Novus Orbis did not begin to embody Cortes' letters till 1555. 
The compiler was probably one of the distinguished scholars 
who surrounded the two pi'omising children of Francis I, men- 
tioned as receiving the dedications. The Due d'Angouleme 
was then only ten years of age, the Princess Marguerite (after- 
wards Duchess de Berri, and wife of Emanuel Philibert of 
Savoy) only nine, but they were already regarded as future 
patrons of literatui-e, and their education was carefully 
cultivated. — This rare work fetched at the Beekford-Hamilton 
sale £126. 

1532-34 Franciscan Letters from Mexico:

Chronica compendiosissiraa . . per . . Amandum Zierixeensera 
. . . adiectae svnt epistolae . . ex noua maris Oceani Hispania 
ad nos transmissEe . . 12mo. vellum, £7. 10s 

Antuerp. Simon Cocus, 1584 
At the end of this Clironicle we find the letters lelerred to on the title. 
The first and second are the two (written in Mexico in 1531, by Martin of 
Valencia and Bi>hop Zumarraga) which had been printed by order of the 
Franciscan Chapter at Toulouse in \5-V2. But a third is added which is of still 
more im^jortance to the American student, and which had not previously been 
printed, although wiitten earlier than the other two. It is the Latin version 
of an Epistola from Friar Peter de Gante himself, dated 2Ist June, 1529, and 
addressed generally to all the Franciscans in Flande s, but originally written 
in b^panish because, he says, he had quite forgotten his native tongue. He gives 
an interesting account, in six pages, of the Mt-xic.-in country and people, aiid 
describes biniseif as i^etrus de Mura (? Moere), born in the city of Yguen in 
the province of Budarda, who \uth two others had left Ghent in Apiil, 1522, 
Uh- .-pain, and eadjaricnig un ist May, 1523, reached Villenque (in America) 


on the 30th August, whence they made their way to the city of Mexico. 
From Mexico he went to Tezcuco, where he remained three years and a half 
(his fellows had accompanied Cortes elsewhere and were dead). Thence 
returning to Mexico, he was settled permanently, and was labouring as an 
instructor of youth. His method of dealing with fifty boys of special excel- 
lence shows him to have been a useful labourer. He asks that some one will 
translate his letter into Flemish, that it may be read to his parents, and begs 
that a Bible shall be sent him. Then he finishes with a sentence in Mexican — 
a remarkable specimen, as being the first appearance of an American language 
in print.

the World, in the original boards, covered with stamped leather,

The map is entitled " Typus Cosmographicus Universalis ;" the word 
"Asia" printed in large capitals. South America is represented as an 
island separated by a narrow sfrait from Cuba ; of North America the only 
part shown is a small island called " Terra Cortesia."

Paris, apud Joannem Paruum, 1532 
The rarest edition of the famous " Novus Orbis," which goes under the 
name of Grynteus, although he merely wrote the preliminary dedication, the 
collection having been really made by Johann Huttich. The only difference 
between the two issues of Paris, 1532, lies in the title-pages. The map by 
Oronce Fin^, one of the most curious and ingenious productions of early 
cartography, is alone worth more than any copy of the other editions of 
Grynseus, and is usually wanting. 

28587 Novus Orbis, adjecta est huic postremae editioni Navigatio, 
etc. sm. folio, inap, vellum, £4. 4s Basil., J. Hervagius, 1537 

The map, entitled " Typus Cosmographicus Universalis," is the same as

Vol. I 1563 and 15G?, Vol. II 1583, and Vol. Ill 1565 (with the piece Viaggio 
di Cesare de' Fred.erici inserted from the 1606 edition). 

Vol. I. Between the editions of 1563 and 1613 there is no difference, 
except in the title, and the arrangement of the first thn-e preliminary leaves. 
In the edition of 1613 (and 1606), however, there are three copperplate maps, 
which are not in any other edition. 

Vol. II. The edition of 1574 is the best of the incomplete editions f 1559, 
1564 and 1574). The edition of 1583 contains the piece Navigatione di 
Sehaat. Cahot (11. 212-19), and 90 11. at the end of the volume, in addition to 
what had already appeared in 1574. 

Vol. III. The 1606 edition contains the piece Viaggio di Cesare de' 
Frederici (II. 386-430) which is not in that of 1565, though it is generally 
inserted there. Between the editions of 1566 and 1565 there is no difference, 
except in the title.

The above series of Missionary Reports relates to America, China, India, 
Africa, and many little known islands, etc. Sprengel, in his History of 
Geographical Discovery, mentions Stocklein's work most honourably. 

It is often stated to be a translation of the Lettres Edifiantes, but this is 
only true to a certain extent. A large and important portion of the collec- 
tion was entirely new, taken from unpublished MSS. Its value to the student 
of American History and Geography cannot be over-estimated. As the 
merest specimen, a map in Vol. I may be adduced, which gives a complete 
and correct delineation of California and Mexico, from actual survey made 
in the year 1702 by the Jesuit Kuhn (called Kmo) and his assistants.

8vo. fine copy in p^crple morocco extra, gilt edges, by Lortic, from, 
the Court library, £63. Paris, 1586 

Excessively bake. I cannot trace half-a-dozen copies. The contents 
of this volume are chiefly known through De Bry {Grands Voyages, part 2), 
a modern reprint produced at Paris, and a translation in French's Historical 
Collections of Louisiana. It was Kichard Hakluyt who furnished the MS. 
from which Basanier published the narrative, and the book is dedicated by the 
editor to Sir Walter Kaleigh, to whom also are addressed the preliminary 
pieces of verse, one of them by Hakluyt himself. The rarity of the book 
and the reason why it had not sooner been printed, are to be accounted for 
by the fact that all the persons connected with the transactions recorded in it, 
were Huguenots. The four parts of which the volume consists are — Ribaut's 
Voyage, 1562; Laudonniere'sin 1564; Ribaut's in 1565 ; and that of Goitrgues 
in 1567. The account here given of the Indian tribes of Florida is very 
extensive, and was almost the first upon the subject, having only been preceded 
by the notices contained in the Naufragit)s of Cabeza de Vaca. The word 
Florida, it must be remembered, had a more extensive signification formerly 
than at present, being applied to the whole continent lying between JSew Spain 
and Canada.

Hagce-Comitis, Alb. Henrici, inifensis authoris et

In a collation of this edition, I find, included in the list of maps, that of 
S. America. The Latin translation, however, omits that part in the Dutch 
and French editions describing America, so the map, though perhaps included 
in some copies, cannot really belong to it. The map of the Polar Kegions is 
not mentioned elsewhere as belonging to this edition, though it clear!}' does 
80 ; it is entitled " Delineatio cartie trium navigationum per Batavos, ad 
Septentrionalem plagam . . . auttore Wilh. Bernardo (Bai-eutz), Com.

The inscriptions on the maps and plates, which in the Dutch, French and 
Latin editions are iu Latin and Dutch, in the English are in Latin and 

This work takes its place among " Collections," because to the narratives 
of his own Voyages, Linschoten annexed the Reysgeschrift or Routier 
compiled from the accounts of Portuguese and Spanish navigators, and his 
translation of Acosta's work on America.

Niort, 1599 
First and excessively rare edition, unknown to the bibliographers. In 
fact, the work itself was only known through its second edition ( — see below), 
which is described carefully both by Brunet and by Ternatix, but naturally 
without any indication of the real authorship. In the first edition, there is a 
dedication to Philippe de Mornay, signed by the Huguenot Minister, Louis de 
le Blachiere, in "which he reveals the author's name as above, stating that 
Bruneau had been Sergeant-major under Mornay's command at l^anmur. We 
know from his own text of the second " Voyage fait au Perou " in this 
volume, that he had commanded a company of foreign foot inside Rochelle 
during the siejre in 1572. In the second edition the dedication is suppressed, 
and a false authorship suggested by initials on the title.

that it was identical with the Rio del Pispiritn J^nnto of (Jaray and the Rio 


Grande of Hernando de Soto. Here also was published, for the first time in 
its integrity, Abel Tasman's map of his discoveries in Australasia (New

Vert rare. First Edition of the account of Giovanni del Plan 
Carpin concerning his embassy from the Pope to the successor of Chingiz 
Khan (a.d. 1246-47) ; full of curious and authentic information about the 
Mongolian Empire in its full extent, and the subjugated or tributary nations. 
Of the Chinese he says that " better artificers could not be found in the world, 
in whatever labour their skill be exercised. Their land is most rich in corn, 
wine, gold, silk, and other things." The work had already been extracted in 
the Speculum of Vincent de Beauvais, but this rare little volume (afterwards 
reprinted by Ramusio) was virtually the first complete publication of the 
narrative, and the best until the Sodeie de Geographie printed the original 
Latin text in 1839. 

In the series of mediasval historical travels fi'om Europe into and through

Ludolf, Rector or Vicar of Suchen, sometimes called Petrus de Suchen, 
wrote in 1350 this account of his Oriental travels during five years, 1336-41; 
saving that, as many others who had made one short pilgrimage found plenty 


to write about, so he with his long experience of Eastern residence might 
relate a little. It is a narrative of considerable interest, as the reverend 
author seems to have been a very observant traveller.

The Beckford copy fetched £.50 ; the Duke of Hamilton's, £38. _ The 
chief value of this little volume lies in its map, which professedly originates 
with the record of the voyage of the brothers Zeno in 1380-90. The con tro- 
ver sy which has long raged with regard to the genuineness of the map (in 
which Greenland is better designed than in any map printed before 1558) is still 
unended, and Baron Nordenskjold has added his celebrated name to the 
number of the disputants. Mr. Major has pretty nearly settled the matter 
of the text, and assigned their proper local relation to the chief circumstances 
of tlie narrative, but the history of the enigmatical map has still to be 
traced. The Zeno who gave it to the world in 1558 states that he produced 
it from the old MS. chart left by his ancestor, and it is evident from the 
configuration of Greenland that he possessed better sources of knowledge 
than any of his contemporaries. The lands which appear on the left margin 
of the map (broken by the border of the engraving), lie south-west of Green- 
land, and are marked Estotiland (Labrador) and Drogeo (which is either the 
south-east corner of Labrador, or else Newfoundland).

PR' (BABLY UNIQUE, no other copy being known. This important 
account of India in the earlier part of the fifteenth century was taken down 
by Pour^io troin the verbal relation of Niccolo Conti, about ad. 1440, when 
the latter visited Rome to obtain abs dution from Euj^enius IV for having 
lived in the east as a Mahommedan daring twenty-five vears. — The narrative 
■was known to Dom Manuel of Portugal, who, in 1500, had ii translated into 
Portuguese along with the earlier work of Marco Polo, and the later short 
statement of Plieronymo de S. Stefano — the subject having acquired a 
powerful interest for the Portuguese crown since the achievement of Vasco da 
Gania's voyage. But Ramusio Fought for it in vair), and was i>bliged to give it 
in his Viaggi in the form of an Italian translation from the Poriuguese. (Jnly 
in the la>t century, in 1723, was the Latin text published (from a MS.), for 
the first time, as it was supposed, and as it has been since considered till now. 
In "India in the fifteenth century" (HaTcluyt Society) the translation is made 
from the edition of 1723, alleged, in Mr. Major's preface, to be the first and 
only one.

Bernard Qaaritch, 1885 
The first translation in any modem language of the extraordinarily rare 
and highly important work of Vespucci, in which he described his first four 
voyages (1^97-98, 1-199-1500, 1501-2, 1503-4). The substance of the narrative 
has only hitherto been known through the medium of the Latin paraphrase 
annexed to W aid seem tiller's Cosmographia in 1507, and the numerous reprints 
an# abridgments of that work ; and as they were disfigured by a great number 
of errors which have tended to discredit the Florentine navigator, it has been 
considered necessary and useful to reproduce the Italian original in a perfect 
facsimile and to bring out a literal version in English. The publisher's 
intention has been to facilitate the study of the work by American students, 
who are naturally extremely interested in the history of Vespucci's voyages — 
especially the first (1497 98), in which it is almost certain that he saw and 
landed on portions of the now United States at a date earlier than any othir 
European voyager since the reputed Norse discovery The claim of anteriority 
made on behalf of the Cabots is not considered valid, the expedition from 
Bristol in 1497 being now proved to have been confined to the coast of

FIRST EDITION of the work by Martin Walzemiiller or 
Waldseemiiller (calling timself Hjlaromylus), in -which the name 
of America was suggested as the one by which the New World 
should in future be known. This is on folio a5, and consists of the 
following statement: " alia quarta pars \_inundQ per Americum 
Vesputium (ut in sequentibus audietur) inventa est quam non 
video cur quis jure vetet ab Americo inventore sagacis ingenii 
viro Amerigen quasi Americi terrain sive Americam dicendam." 
The world has adopted the suggestion of Waldseemiiller, although 
many consider that the fame of Columbus was injured by the 
appellation, and nothing can now avail to change it. This has also 
been supposed to contain the first publication of the account of 
Vespucci's Four Voyages, but it is now certain that the Italian 
text (so rare that only five copies have survived) was printed in 
1505 or 1506.

With verses addressed to the Emperor by " Philesius 
Vogesigena," on the back of the title, and the substitution in 
the dedication of the name of " Martinus Ilacomilus " for that 
of " Gymnasium Vosagense," as it appeared in the first edition. 
Humboldt hastily misread a statement inserted by Hylacomylus 
in the Margarita Philosophica of 1513, and drew fi"om it an 
absurd conclusion which Mr. Harrisse bas followed liberally. 
In April, 1607, Hylacomylus published his work under the 
name of the Gymnasium Vosagense, that is the Academy of four 
or five scholars in which he took a leading place ; and in the 
dedication to Maximilian he naturally used that name in the 
heading, and the words nos and nubis in the text, as in the 
following reference to his labours: "nobis (qui librariara 
officinam apud Lotharingie Vosagum in oppido cui vocabulu est 



1497 Vespucci — continued. 

Sancto Deodato, nuper ereximus) Ptholomei libros . . . recognos-

the passage quoted by Humboldt (written some years later in 
in another book, and mentioning his autumn excursion from. 
Lorraine into Germany) he refers parenthetically to the fact 
that other persons passim had taken the credit of the authorship. 
This was of course not in any way an allusion to any member or 
members of the Gymnasium of St. Die, but to persons elsewhere 
in the learned world ; and such was the reason which induced 
Waltzemiiller to make the small changes above noted, in his 
third and fourth issues of the Cosmographia. The first issue 
was that of April (Kal, Maii), 1507 ; the second, August (Kal. 
Sept.), 1507 ; the third and fourth were produced between 1507 
and 1509, by reprinting, at one and the same time probably, 
and mutatis mutandis, two leaves to be substituted in the unsold 
copies of the former two editions,

The existence of Thick Paper copies has not hitherto been recorded. 

They were perhaps only struck off for some of the Cardinals, friends of Cardinal 

Barberini, to whom the book is dedicated. 

Amerini, who was friendly to Columbus and aided in the realization of 

195 * 


his plans, became the first Bishop in the New World. His Itinerary, or 
diary, was finished at S.Domingo in 1522, where he died three years later. 
His account of the great Genoese navigator, and of the people of the West 
Indies, renders this work indispensable in an American historical library. 

Amongst the preliminary pieces of verse in various languages, there is one 
in English by John Walker, who records the fact that Amerinus had been the 
tutor of four Queens, one of them being Katherine of Aragon, Henry VIII's

28773 the same, sm. 4ito.fine copy in red morocco extra, gilt

A doubly remarkable volume, each of its parts taking a primary rank in 
the annals of the Xew World, The Relacion (now printed for the second 
time, but of the first edition of which in 1542 only one copy is now extant) 
describes the wanderings of Cabe^a de Vaca with the luckless survivors of the 
expedition that had set out in 1527 for the conquest of Florida (by which 
was meant all the region afterwards known as Florida and Louisiana). It is 
the record of the first journey made by Europeans through the United States. 
Cabeza de Vaca and a few others who survived the shipwreck of the expedition, 
were seized by the Indians on the Mississippi coast and held in slavery for four 
years, but escaped and made their way inland across Texas to Sonora, or near 
to the inmost shore of the Gulf of California. Thence he and his three 
companions traversed the country southwards, and succeeded in reaching 
Mexico once more. On his return to Spain in 1537, having failed to get the 
governorship of Florida, which had been given to Soto, he obtained that of the 
River Plate in 1540. He arrived in Uruguay in 1541, and proceeded to 
Asuncion, the capital of Paraguay, where Spanish authority was now seated, 
the site of Buenos Ajres having been abandoned. His work thenceforward 
was the exploration of the regions around the Paraguay and Parana, the 
conciliation of the Indian tribes, and the discovery of the route towards Peru. 
He was however made prisoner by mutineers, and sent back to Spain in 1545. 
His secretary Pedro Hernandez wrote this narrative (which is the first printed 
account of the Plata region), to which is appended a Relacion made in 1545 
by Hernando de Ribera, whom Cabeza de Vaca had sent on a journey of 
exploration northwards up the River Paraguay.

Poictiers, Ian de Marnef, 1559 
Vkrt rare first edition of a work which is doubly interesiing as 
an early work of i-ailing directions for all parts of the world, and in particular 
for the coasts of North America, as well as by reason of its importance in the 
Bibliotheca Canadensis. It is No. 2 of Harrisse's list, Alfonce having been 
associated with Koberval in the expedition to New France in 1542, in which 
the latter was to have been accompanied by Cartier. No copy of this edition 
has turned up for sale in the English market tor the last fifty years, and 
apparently only three (including this) in France. The descriptions of the 
coasts of Labrador, Newfoumlhuul, and the Gulf of St. Laurence, offer a 
curious conjunction of the knowledge personally acquired, and the information 
derived on one hand from Cartier, on the other from Portuguese and Spanish 
sources. The Appendix at the end, " Les Tables de la Declinaison que fait 
le ^oleil de la ligne Equinoctiale," by Olivier Bisselin, has a separate series 
of signatures and pages.

Thevet went out with Villegagnon in 1555, when the latter attempted to 
establish a French colony near the mouth of the Rio Janeiro, and returned 
apparently the year following with Bois-le-Comte, the nephew of the former 
leader. The French designs were in a few years' time completely frustrated, 
but they lasted long enough to produce a considerable number of expeditions, 
and a belief that France would justify the title conferred on the settlement by 
Thevet. His account of the natives, their country, and their language, is 
very ample, and the woodcuts which illustrate the volume are of remarkable 
merit. They furnished De Bry with some of his most striking pictures. — In 
the return voyage, Bois-le-Comte seems to have sailed northwards, and Thevet 
speaks of Canada and Newfoundland as if he had been there himself. He 
mentions Cartier as having told hita some facts concerning his two voyages. 
It is strange tliat Harrisse did not include Thevet in his Notes pour servir 
a Vhistoire de la Nouvelle France. There are 32 pages given to Canada, with 
some woodcuts, and this alone ought to give a Thevet's Singularitez the very 
second place in that bibliography. The publication preceded by one year the

This was the product of three missions. The notes of Martin de Rada, 
or de Herrada, in the first expedition (along with Ptdro de Sarmiento) in 1575, 
and those of Gonzalez de Mendoza on his mission of 1578, enabled the latter to 
write the Historia. A third journey in 1581, by Martin Ygnacio de Loyola, 
furnished the Itinerario.

and of his residence at Constantinople contains interesting particulars relating 
to the Turkish Government.

The 1 1 umber of copies which contain the maps is extremely limited. It 
is surprising to notice how much these delineations are in agreement with 
the supposed new discoveries of the latest investigators. The secrets of the 
Nile, the Congo, and the inland lakes were revealed to Pigafetta by Lopez 
neary three hundred years ago ; and we should therefore look to Speke, 
Livingstone, Cameron, and Stanley, not for news concerning totally 
unexplored and unknown regions, but for confirmation and correctinn of 
already existing knowledge. Lopez started from the mouth of the Tagus 
in 1578, and, after some years spent in Africa, returned to Europe charged 


with a mission from the King of Coiijjo to the Spanish monarch. Philip wa8 
then engai;ed in ti ring nut the Armada, and Lopi'z Hiiding himself dis- 
appointed went to Rome and was reeeived by the Pope. He dictated his narrative 
to Pigafetta, who wrote it in Italian and printed it at Koine in 1591.

varied and reduced from the original designs ; and even in the Italian version 
by Giunio, there are departures from accuracy in this respect, two of the

It is to be feared that the central object of Ealeigh's picture, although 
generally believed in by the navigators ofall countries in the sixteenth century, 
■was embellished with consciously imaginative touches by the author, and that 
he knew better than most others how utterly untrue was the story of The 
Gilded King (El Dorado) and his magnificent Golden City (Manoa). But his 
accounts ot what he actually saw have a high geographical interest, and 
Schomburgk has proved that his descriptions of Indian tribes are accurate ; 
■while his own tragical and romantic history, combined with the fact that he 
■was the founder of England's colonial empire, and the first figure in the 
Annals of the United States, gives to his Guiana a commercial value and 
importance beyond its mere literary rank. 

Harcourt's Relation is a rare book, but Keymis' is of the highest degree 
of rarity, not more than three or four copies having occtured in the market

This is the second printed volume of Champlain's Voyages, and narrates 
the experiences of his second voyage to Canada (1604-8), his third (1608-9), 
and his fourth (1610-11), his fifth (1611), and his sixth (1613). These last 
four voyages are treated as independent of the precedmg two expeditions, and 
are called I-IV. The large map appears to be a facsimile, judging from the 
paper on which it is impressed, but it looks very like an original, and seems to 
have been produced from a metal plate.

published in 1604 ; an abridgment of the Second, Third, Fourth, Fifth,

One of the most interesting and valuable accounts of old English travels 
in the East which we possess. The occasional Christian comments on Moham- 
medan darkness are not accompanied by any prejudices in the narrative, which 
is especially circumstantial concerning the Persian empire, then very powerful. 
It is not clear why the title bears " the Preacher's Travels," as Cartwright who 
went to Ispahan, and his companion John Mildenab, who travelled on to 
Lahore, seem to have been merchants.

First Latin edition of a work which had been published for the first time

ever undertaken, and contributed largely to the science of cartography, by the 

number of new discoveiics which marked the course of Le Maire and 


Schouten in their circumnavigation of the globe. Magellan in the Victoria, 
Drake in the Pelican, and Schouten in the Endracht form three of the most 
striking figures in geographical history. The portraits of six circumnavigators 
are engraved in the borders of the map of the world : Magellan, Schouten, 
Drake, Cavendish, Van Nort, and Spilbergen.

An inferior copy fetched £16. 10s at the Drake Sale, Sotheby's, 1883. 
"More than one copy has been sold for 30 guineas." — Rich. The map is 
almost always wanting, and from the well-known jealousy, or policy rather, of 
the Spanish Government, was probably inserted in very few copies. Crofts 
believed his own copy to be the only perfect one in England — that in the 
British Museum being deficient of the chart.

£2. 2s 1655 

Gage, as a Dominican friar, went out with a party of Spanish missionaries 
in 1625. He was thus enabled to compile a book which is remarkable as the 
first and only extensive work by an English author upon the Spanish Indies 
as seen from within. It is very entertaining and instructive, notwithstanding 
the singularly superstitious tales that it narrates. After twenty-four years, 
absence from England, Gage returned home in 1639, and a year later joined 
the English Church. It is curious that we find in this volume the word 
" party " used in its modern slang sense of " individual."

A spirit ot adventure 1-d this young Strassburger to go from home at 
seventeen years of age (in 1629) and to take service with the Dutch. He was 
immediately sent to America, and helped to tight the Portuguese and 
Spaniards in Brazil and the West Indians. After more than three years' 
experience of warfare, he returned and got married. In his old age he 
published his narrative for the first time.

28861 the same, sm.4to. red morocco, by Bedford, £36. 1635 

Like Hud.-on, Battin, Davis, Franklin, the north-country sailor who wrote 
this curious book, has left unimperishable traces on the map of his boldness 
and skill in exploring the Arctic regions. He failed to discover the North- 
west passage, but the names he gave to many of the places he discovered have 
reinaint-d as witnesses of his labours. Ilis map was a valuable contributiou of 
Iresh information to the cartographer, and is still one of the more important 
documents in the history of Geography and of Arctic exploration.

Very kare ; the book itself is of very infrequent occurrence, and the 
map is wanting in most copies. Pelham, in the preface, compares his own 
case with that of Barentz in the Dutch voyage of 1596. He and seven 
companions went on shore to kill venison, lost their way, and missed their 
ship, so that they were cast away on the shores of Greenland from August, 
IG30 till the London whale- fleet returned to Greenland, at the end of May, 16.31. 
The map is the same as apjtears in the third volume of Purchas.

Althongh here are three copies of the one book, it is nevertheless so rare 
that there are probably not more than a dozen in existence. It was 
formerly supposed that only four copies had survived to our time. The explora- 
tion of the whole course of the Amazon, and the discovery that it was 
navigable all the way from Quito to the Atlantic, were farts of such 
importance, that although the King ordered the account to be printed, it was 
afterwards thought advisable to suppress and destroy it, in order that the 
Portuguese, who between 1639 and 1641 had regained their independence of 
Spain, should not have the benefit of Spanish enterprise.

ExTKEMELY RARE ; Unknown to the bibliographers and writers on 
America. This Capuchin friar was sent out as the head of a mission to the 
French West Indies, and wrote the Brieve Relation in the island of Guade-

Fetched £14. 14s at the Beckford sale. 

This has a variation in the preliminary leaves, which are 15 including 
the title, and all printed on. The dedicatory letter to Colbert in the former 
copy is in small type and occupies four leaves. In the latter it is in larj^er 
type, occupying five leaves, and is followed by a sixth, " Au Lecteur," which 
is not the former. The Carib or Galibi Dictionary which follows the account 
of Bretigny's expedition occupies pp. 393-43.3, and is succeeded on pp. 434-463 
by a " Brieve Relation de tout ce qui se passa au voyage que Monsieur le 
Baron de Dormelles fit faire a I'Amerique (1648)."' Bretigny started in 1643 
with commisson as Governor-general of Cap Nord, that is, of French Guiana, 
and was massacred by the natives in 1645, with a great number of the French 
colonists in Cavenne.

Rare first editiox. Salva possessed only a later edition, printed at 
Madrid, but in a note he mentions the existence of this, and also of a previous 
edition of Madrid, 1680. He was, however, mistaken. Cubero was in Naples 
in 1682, and his dedication bears that date and place, and the privileges and 
approbations are all of that year. In or about 1676 he started eastwards, 
proceeding by land till he reached India ; thence sailing to the Moluccas, and 
afterwards across the Pacific Ocean to Acapulco and to Mexico. He reached 
Spain again in 1680. He was a diligent observer, and had plenty of good 
sense and shrewdness.

The greater part of the copies now in 
the market want from page 272 to page 
350, and plates 50-69. " Humboldt traces 
with the hand of a master the outline of 
a picture, future travellers can only 
assist in filling up.'" — Ward's Mexico. 

In this work, the Picture-writing of 
the Mexicans first received the attention 
and the ample treatment which are due 
to a literature as strange and important 
in the records of the New World, as that 
of Egypt in the Old.

At a great public meeting, held June 
21, 1824, it was declared by the exe- 
cutive of the Mexican Govern- 
ment, that " Mr. Humboldt's Politic6,l 
Essays on New Spain contained the most 
complete and most accurate picture of 
the natural riches of the country, and 
that the reading of this great work has 
not a little contributed to reanimate the 
active industry of the nation, and to 
inspire it with confidence in its own

"No name stands higher than that of Humboldt among the lovers of 
geographical and physical science. Zealous, active, vigorous ; imbued with 
liberal knowledge, skilful in general physics, and particularly attached to 
chemistry and its kindred branches, possessing ample means of indulging his 
taste, he has directed his inquiries into every department of nature and society. 
The mass of curious information which he has procured in those distant 
travels, and the superb collection which he was enabled to make relative to 
different objects of science, far exceed an^ thing that has heretofore been 
achieved by the exertions of an individual." — Edinburgh Review, Vol. 16.

del Imperio de las Indias Occidentales, sm. 4to. green morocco 
extra, gilt edges, hy Petit, £12. 10s Madrid, 1646 

Very rare ; having only been privately printed for the use of the 
Council of the Indies, but not published. It is the best statistical account that 
exists concerning the Spanish Empire in New Spain, California, and Central 
America, embracing also short historical summaries, and was considered by 
the King and Council to be a document of singular value for their own 
information. It is to be presumed that only so many copies were printed as 
were needed for ofiScial reference. Diez de la Calle, who was Assistant- 
Secretary of the Council, had already in 1645 prepared and printed an abstract 
of the same particulars which were here given in their full and enlarged form. 
The preface mentions that he was preparing a similar document with regard to 
Pei'u, which was given to the press in 1654, and issued to the Council along 
with a re-impression of the above Memorial. 

29015 [FERNANDEZ DE ENCISO (Martin)] Suma de 


& trata largamete del arte del marear : juntamete con 
la espera en romace : con el regimieto del sol & del 



norte : nueuamente liecha, sni. folio, first edition, 
OF EXTREME BARiTY,Jine copy^ 271 vcllum^ £100. 

Sevilla, por Jacoho Croherger^ 1519 

The first book printed in Spain and in Spanish relating 
TO America. The author describes himself as " Alguazil mayor 
de la Tierra firme de las Indias Occidentales," and gives in the 
first place a summary of general Geography, followed by a 
closely detailed account of the West Indies, the mainland of 
South America, and of the northern coast to Labrador as far as 
then known. His own experience during twenty years enabled 
him to satisfy the curiosity of the young King Charles I of Spain, 
soon afterwards Charles V of the Empire, completely so far as 
regarded the Islands and the coasts of the southern mainland. 
He mentions in his dedication a map of the world that he had 
constructed to accompany the text and elucidate it for the king. 
This valuable document was never published, but it perhaps 
exists still in the archives of Spain. The first hint which the 
invaders seem to have had of the civilization existing in Mexico 
and Peru is to be found on the second-last page where Enciso 
states : " Tambien ay tierra a donde los indios dizen que ay 
gente que tienen libros y que escriven y leen como nosotros." 
Enciso is stated in the Bibl. Amer. Vetust. to have gone out 
with Bastidas (who left Spain in 1501), but the authority quoted 
is Herrera, Dec. I, lib. 7, which is not correct. Herrera at that 
place refers only toEnciso as assisting in Ojeda's expedition to the 
mainland in 1509. He commences to speak of him thus, and it 
is the first mention of his name in the Decades : " Hallabase 
entonces en Santo Domingo un letrado llamado Martin Fernan- 
dez de Enciso que havia ganado a abogar dos mil castellanos 
que eran mas en aquel tiempo que aora diezmil." The profitable 
nature of a lawyer's business amongst the early invaders may 
from this be readily imagined. It is not improbable that Enciso 
may have been the only one of them who really deserved the 
name of letrado. He took the command of the forces on Ojeda's 
death in 1510, and founded the town of Darien, but soon came 
to loggerheads with Vasco Nunez de Valboa who had surrepti- 
tiously joined the expedition and speedily obtained the ascend- 
ancy due to his genius. Roughly treated by Nuiiez, he returned 
to Spain in 1512 to seek for redress, which was granted him in 
a royal decree against his enemy, who was then engaged in his 
great expedition of traversing the Isthmus. Enciso went out 
again in 1514 as Alguazil Mayor with Pedrarias Davila the 
Governor of Darien. He was again in Spain in 1529, as we find 
that he had Pizai*ro arrested in Seville in that year for debt. 
(Herrera, dec. IV, p. 104.) 

When sent by Davila on an expedition to the mouth of the 
river Zenu, about half-way between Cartagena and the Gulf of 
Darien, in the year 1515, the Bachiller Enciso had a very curious 
conversation with two of the Indian chiefs whom he required to 
make submission to the Spanish King, and he records it with 



such remarkable faithfulness and literal ity, in spite of the 
scandal and the Inquisition, that it must be supposed he was 
struck by the good sense and forcible character of the observa- 
tions he heard. The remark about the Pope is omitted by 
Herrera, who perhaps was prudent in doing so. 

En lo que dezia que no 
avia sine un Dios qae este 
governava el cielo y la tierra y 
que era seiior de todo que les 
parecia bien y que assi devia 
ser; pero que en lo que dezia 
que el Papa era senor de todo 
el universo, en lugar de Dios, y 
que el avia fecho mei-ced de 
aquella tierra al rey de Castilla, 
dixeron que el Papa deviera 
estar borracho quando lo hizo 
pues dava lo que no era suyo, y 
que el rey que pedia y tomava 
tal merced devia ser algun loco 
pues pedia lo que era de otros 
y que fuesse alia a tomarla. 

In what I said that there 
was only one God, that he 
governed heaven and earth, and 
that he was Lord of all, it 
appeared well to them and that 
it ought to be so ; but as to my 
statement that the Pope was 
lord of all the universe in lieu 
of God, and that he had con- 
ferred that land upon the King 
of Castillo, they said that the 
Pope must have been drunk 
when he did so, for he gave 
what was not his own, and that 
the king who asked for and 
accepted such a gift must be 
some idiot, since he asked fox" 
the property of others and came 
there to take it.

foHo, native Manuscript painted on 1^ leaves of 
maguey paper^ a coarse cloth-like fabric appai'ently 
made from fibres of the American aloe, £500. 

fTezciico, about 1530 

According to the oi'der in which the leaves are numbered 
by a comparatively modern hand, they run as follows : 

Folio 1 (pp. 1-2) On the obverse, a picture of Ixtlilxochitl I, 
King of Tezcuco (sec. xiv). Above his head are two mountain- 
peaks with an inscription which appears to read Tzinguliocan- 
tepetl, which may mean Mountains of Culhoacan, and beneath 
the hills the words Ne nemi coaxochtli meaning the Boundary- 
line. These inscriptions are in a large gothic letter of schoolboy 
style, and indicate a Mexican or Tezcucan hand soon after the 
conquest. The reverse of the first leaf is blank. 

2 (pp. 3-4) On the obverse, a large seated figure of 
Tenancacaltzin (who was either the Usurper of Tenoyacan, about 
A.D. 1290, or the brother of the above mentioned Ixtlilxochitl), 
with his emblem at foot, which is formed by a group of eight 
amputated heads of princes. On the reverse are the figures of 
Tecpanacacaltzin-Topiltzin, King of the Toltecs in the twelfth 



Aztec Painted Records — continued. 

century, and his son Xilotzin. This leaf is intended to exhibit 
the ancestry of IxtlilxochitL 

3 (pp. 5-6) On the obverse, two figures which seem to be 
intended for the father and mother of the last Ixtlilsochitl 
(Prince of Tezcuco, who allied himself to Cortes, became 
Christian, and was King of Tezcuco under Spanish supremacy). 
On the reverse is a picture of the Temple or Church of 

4 (pp. 7-8) On the obverse are 12 houses, on the reverse 
more houses and the royal residence. 

5 (pp. 9-10) Obverse : two figures of a man and woman 
seated, with a ti^e or plant below. Reverse : King Ixtlilxochitl 
and his bride. 

6 (pp. 11-12) Obverse : Maxtla, King r f Acaputzalco, and 
his palaces. Reverse : towns and trees, with names. 

7 (pp. 13-14) Obverse: towns and trees with names. Reverse: 
'^ Totlacata," a cacique and a town with houses. 

8 (pp. 15-16) Obverse : Mountain- villages of Tepotzotlan, 
houses and trees. Reverse : trees, a house, and the figure of a 
cacique " ye Tzontlimecatl o o o o." 

9 (pp. 17-18) two figures, with houses below, 
showing Ixtlilxochitl's conquest of Coatitlan, and his captives. 
Reverse. . . . 

10 (pp. 19-20) Obverse: King Tlaltecatzin (grandfather of 
Ixtlilxochitl 1) and his wife (?) and some towns. Reverse: 
Ixtlilxchitl and another personage. 

11 (pp. 21-22) Obverse: Tepaneca towns; a figure and 
other towns on the reverse. 

12 (pp. 23-24) Obvei-se : a seated figure and a town, with 
the inscription boundary route ; on the reverse, two seated 
figures and another to^^^l. 

13 (25-26) Obverse : Town of Coaxicaltepec, with trees, and 
a seated figure ; other towns on reverse. 

14-16 (pp. 27-32) Six pages of figures of men and women, 
towns and trees, with inscriptions. 

This historical record was probably prepared for and used 
by the last Ixtlilxochitl, whose aid was so important to Cortes, 
and who was afterwards recognized as King of Tezcuco under 
Spanish rule. If so, it must have been one of the plnturas 
to which that prince's descendant Don Fernando de Alva 
Ixtlilxochitl refers in his Belaciones, as being in his possession 
some seventy years later than the Conquest. 

29041 MEXICAN CALENDAR, a coloured drawing in 
circular form on a single leaf of agave-paper, con- 
taining the symbols of the months (the year was 
divided into eighteen months of twenty days each) 
in the outer ring of the circle, and several figures 
within the ring, including pictures of 


Aztec Painted Records — covtinued. 

Netzcualcoyotl, the great monarch ot Aculhuacan, 
who restored the cliief seat of the empire 
from Mexico to Tezcuco about 1430 ; and 

Ytzcohuatl his ally, the contemporary King of 
Mexico, each enthroned with his symbol in 
front of him, and a temple or royal residence 
depicted behind him. And of 

Hernando decor (? Cortes), seated, with a black 
Spanish hat on his head ; and a round 
figure painted blue beneath his throne, 
which probably is intended to represent the 
Lake of Mexico ; and 

Don Antonio Pimentel (son of Ixtlilxochitl, the 
ally of Cortes, and last native King of 
Tezcuco) seated, with a blue-painted figure 
of a mountain (the Sierras of Acolhuacan) 
beneath his throne. Behind them, the royal 
residences are depicted. 

The leaf is partly in rotten condition, so that the 
head of Ixtlilxochitl, and some of the symbols of the 
months, are lost. However, enough remains to stamp 
this with extraordinary value, enhanced further by 
the fact that the various figured symbols of deities' 
heads, birds, etc. by which the months are distin- 
guished, are different from those which appear in the 
published Mexican Calendars. The names of the 
months are given in Castilian characters, but in the 
Nahuatl tongue, and there is a Nahuatl inscription 
under the two great sovereigns Netzcualcoyotl and 
Itzcohuatl, £40. Tezcuco^ about 1530 

This leaf, like the historical pictures of Cemboalla or Zen- 
puhalan, must have been part of the Ixtlilxochitl inheritance, 
and have belonged to the Don Fernando de Alva of that name 
whose Relaciones were printed by Lord Kingsborough.

Most of the copies of tbis magiiificent work are bow 
disposed of, and safely placed away in libraries, from which 
they are not likely to emerge again in any quantity. As a 
necessary consequence, there will be a considerable augmentation 
in the value of such odd copies as may occasionally come 
forward, when collections of books are thrown into the auction

'* When, some four centuries ago, the enterprise of Spanish 
navigators opened the vast continent of America to the admira- 
tion of Euro))e, the civilization of the New World was found to 
be concentrated in two spots, and two only, of that enoi-mous 
territory. One of these favoured regions was Peru ; the other 
was Mexico. It was in Mexico especially that art, politics

the. rest of North. America, from the shores of Hudson's Bay 
to the mouths of the Mississippi, was desolate and barbarous, 
diversified only by swamp, forest, or prairie, and populated by 
savages without knowledge or laws. Mexico alone redeemed 
the character of the new continent, and presented to the eyes of 
the invader a spectacle so marvellous as to satisfy even the 
expectations which the great discovery had raised. There the 
Spaniards found an organized State, an ancient polity, an 
opulent capital, an exalted dynasty, a formidable priesthood, 
and a people well skilled in mechanical and decorative arts. So 
great, in fact, was the proficiency of the Mexican workmen, so 
elaborate the system of government, and so impressive the whole 
evidence of wealth and grandeur, that for some time the 
civilization of Mexico was regarded as superior to that of 
Eui'ope. Although indeed the researches of modern inquirers 
have enabled us to supply some corrective to these ideas, it is 
really probable that in certain respects the Spaniards found 
Mexico more advanced than Spain, and we have been recently 
assured on the authority of a comprehensive history that this 
civilization was the necessary incident of geographical and 
natural advantages. Such was the situation and configuration 
of Mexico that it could hardly fail to make progress, and all 
that was discovered there in the shape of national wealth or 
political order represented extraordinary opportunities which 
nature had provided." — Times, Dec. 8, 1S58.

Vol. VI. Containing the Acts from Jan. 1562 to April, 
1564, in 317 unnumbered leaves. 

This was one of the most important articles of the Ramirez 
collection, and ought to be secured by a Public Library in 

At the end of the first volume we learn that in the original 
books exists a note in the handwriting of the eminent scholar 
Dn. Carlos Siguenza y Gongora, in which he states that during 
the tumult which took place in Mexico on the 8th of June, 1692, 
when the mob burnt both the national and the municipal palace, 
he saved the original Actas. 

The value of these six volumes as historical documents 
cannot be exaggerated, and any one who has dedicated himself 
to the study of the years immediately following the conquest, and 
who knows the important pai-t which the Municipal Councils of 
those times took in all public aifairs of consequence, will at once 
recognize their utility, because they form, not only the founda- 
tion of Colonial history, but to a certain extent the foundation 
also of the history of a society and a civilization that were dis- 

These volumes contain also copies of a great number of 
" Cedulas Reales," letters from important personages, such as 
Cortes, Alvarado, and others. 

A small part of these Acts have been printed in the Boletin 
Municipal de Mexico, but they consist merely of extracts, and 
have been edited in such a careless manner, and issued in such 
a small number of copies, that these volumes lose in consequence 
nothing either in value or importance. 

The printed title which was used for the first and second 
volumes must have been taken from an edition in facsimile of 



part of the text prepared by Ygnacio Rayon. On that of 
Vol. II, Ramirez altered in writing the name of Rayon to that of 
Orozco ; he did not make a similar change on the title of Vol. I, 
although that volume is, without doubt, entirely in his own

All editions of this important work are of extreme rarity. It contains 
some of the most valuable materials in existence for the history of the 
Spanish Omquest and settlements in America; as well as of the manners, 
language, and religions of the aborigines. Davila Padilla was born in Mexico 
in 1662, and had the fullest opportunities of obtaining authentic information. 
He is the earliest writer who mentions the establishment of Printing in the 
IS'ew World, and the fact that the Scala Cceli of St. Joaunes Climacus 
translated by his namesake Juan de Estrada from the Latin version, was 
entiiled to the distinction of being the first book printed in America 
(about 1535-6).

A list of all the members of the Franciscan order in any way connected 
with New Spain, from the conquest to the end of the seventeenth century ; the 
second part brings the work down to 1764, and a note of that date appears 
at the beginning of this volume, in which the author refers to his labours on 
the second part. He may have completed it, but it was probably never 
transcribed for use like this one. 

The date of the entrance of each member with the year of his demise 
is added, and all the more distinguished members have a short biography

and other three for Ivdex; in a small but very clear handwriting, 
limp vellmn wrapper, £18. 10s Madrid, 1711 — Mexico, 1720 

The author was born in Cantaleja, near Segovia, in 1674 ; when 
seventeen years of age he entered the Spanish army as a soldier, went to 
Argel, and after his return made the campaign against the French in 
Cataluna from 1693 to 1700, in whic'i he was gradually promoted to the 
post of lieutenant and adjutant. In 1701 he entered the order of Jesuits, and 
in 1706 was sent by his Superior to Mexico, where he remained during four 
years, and then returned to Europe. Having concluded his business in Rome 
he returned to Madrid, with the intention of sailing for the Philippines by way 
of Mexico. Here, at Madrid, the original work ends with December, 1711. 
1 he continuous narrative breaks off, and we hear no more of his voyages. 
But there is annexed, a " Relacion sucinta de las propriedades de los Indies 
Mexicanos, que en el discurso de catorze afios, a observado en ellos el Ho, 
Phelipe Frutos." This was written in or after the year 1720, which makes it 
probhtile that he reached Mexico in 1712, and went no farther.

This valuable State paper was prepared for the secret instruction of the 
Viceroy and his successors in the due administration of the Government, to 
enable them to secure just imposition of taxes, the verification of revenue 
receipts, and to control the entire financial system of the Mexican dominion. 
The Marquis de Sonjra. better known as Don Jose de Galvez, is said by 
Aleman to have created the " Board of Trade " Ministry in Mi-xico, and the 
historian goes even so far as to attribute all the material and commercial 
prosperity of the country to tliut statesoran. The Emperor Maximilian cau.-^ed 
twenty copies of this Informe to be printed in 1866. 

In the folio copy of 1783, the following additional documents follow the

The author was Commissary General of the Indies, but his book contains 
little about America, although the Franciscan order which he celebrates 
laboured extensively in that field. The first notice of the New World is

This work was privately printed in London, and was intended to be 
circulated in Mexico, but the vessel in which nearly the whole of the impression 
was sent out, was never heard of afterwards, for which reason the work is 
extremely scarce. The author, whose full name was Jos6 Servando Santo

The Relations of Don Fernando de Alva Ixtlilxochitl — lineal descendant 
(grandnepliew) of the last King of Tezcuco, and a man who had very little 
Spanish feeling in his composition — were written at the beginning of the 
i^fM-nteeulh century, and derived entirely from native sources and the inter- 


pretation furnished by the oldest notabilities of the country of the existing 

picture-records. They are by far the most important contribution to Mexican 

history before the Conquest. 

The work is divided into the following sections: — 

I. Sumaria Eelacion ... in five chapters or Relaciones. 

ir. Ystoria de los Chichimecos, down to the time of NetzahualcoyotI, in 

ten Relaciones. 

III. Account of the Mexicans from the death of Chimalpopoca ; Ordeu

Toltecas fueron segundos pobladores." 12 Relaciones, ending with (13th) 
Origen de los Xuchimilcas. 

Followed by a Suplicacion to the Viceroy for intercession with the King, 
signed by the author.

The oldest and best MS. of the work now existing, apparently almost

once since the 6rst edition in 18.55, but it still requires to be critically edited, 
according to the admission of Ycazbalceta, who published an edition, in 1870, 
for the Geographical Society of Mexico.

of his codex.

An interesting c illection of copies of documents relutinoj to the history of

The " Padre colector " says at the beginning that " a thousand things of

The high official positions which the late Don J. F. Ramirez occupied at 
different times, as a member of the several Cabinets and also of the Supreme 
Court of Mexico, afforded him ample means of obtaining the documents

historical and statistical information is contained. It includes thirty

agents in Europe — such as Pascasio, Echeverria, Arraxgoiz, Valdi-

A contemporary copy of a petition which the Indians presented to the 
Viceroy, setting forth in the most touching language the manner in which 
they had aided Ilernan Cortes in the conquest, the non-fulfilnient of the 
promises which they had received, the consequent miseries of their lot and the 
heavy contributions under which they were groaning, etc., and begging relief 


from their burden. The date is marked by a passage referring to the epidemic 
of '• los alios pasados de 76 y 77," and the fact that the Tlascalau population 
had been reduced by that plague from over 200,000 persons to 24,000.

favorable reply to the letter from Juliano Garces, first Bishop of Tlascala. in 
which he sought the Pope's protection for the newly converted natives against 
the brutality and cruelty of most of the Spaniards, lay and clerical. It is

extensive in its scope than the mere title would seem to show. Its articles treat 
on the Ethnography, Natural Productions, Languages, History. Archteology,

important of the periodical publications of the republic.

and died in 1700. In earl)' life he joined the Order of St. Francis. His 
profound knowledge of the Mexican tongue enabled him to make good use, 
in the composition of his Chronicle, of the valuable documents existing in that

"As Villa-Seiior was Accountant-general in New Spain, and by that 
means had access to proper information, his testimony with respect to the 
royal revenue merits great credit. He is the only author who has given its 
population, and although imperfect, having given only five of the nine dioceses, 
very useful, having published them from the reports of the magistrates in the 
several districts, and from his own observations and long acquaintance with 
most of the provinces." — Robertson.

An admirable work, which will probably lead most people to take it as 
proven that the Aztec civilization is of Chinese origin, and that Mexico was 
really the Fusang of the Buddhist pilgrim. The author's careful examination 
of the antiquities and history of the Mexican empire will always entitle his 
book to a place on the shelves near Torquernada, Herrera, and Prescott.

Not even the monstrous legend which forms the groundwork of this book 
could shut out many valuable historical facts, which are woven into the 
narration. The volume really contains much information not elsewhere to

The Jesuit Florencia was a native of Florida, and perhaps his own name 
as well as that of his native country formed the chief reason for his persistent 
and often recorded worship of the "florida imagen." Yet his works contain 
historical matter notwithstanding their loathsome idolatry.

Tlie simplified grammar, which in the second preceding 
article follows the more ample grammar of 1559, is a totally 
different work from the latter, and apparently quite unknown to 
bibliographers. Its date is assumed from the use in the preface 
of the word " nuper," in reference to the 1559 book.

The volume includes a spirited full-page woodcut of the Crucifixion and a 

figure of S. Francis on folios 14 and 38, with numerous woodcut initials. The 

lop margins of some leaves are wormed. 

A ver}' early specimen of Mexican typography: included in the list of books

Negro-Spanish, in Ba-que, and in Latin, mixed up with the bpanish poems. 
The third vol. contains pieces by Spanish-American writers in her praise.

Antiquities of Spain, in which there are eight pages of prose and verse in the

Extremely rare ; imperfect ; commencing on b 1 (fol. 9), and conse- 
quently wanting the first 8 fols. (which include title) ; the last two leaves are 
slightly defective. Printed in red and bl."ick Gothic letter, with woodcuts 
and musical notes. The pagination is irregular, but the copy is quite com- 
plete from fols. 9-173, on verso of the latter of which begins the " Tabula," 
3 pp. (not numb.); then on the opposite page the Colophon, 1 p., followed 
by Licenses, etc, 7 pp., which apparently finish the work. 

Not mentioned by I.ecleic, Graesse, or Brunet, though the continuator of 
the latter mentions the copy from the Maximilian collection, which wanted 
the first 17 leaves, and is the only one, besides the present, of which I 
find any record (the copy mentioned in the Bihl. Americ. as known to 
Icazbalceta and Mr. Harrisse be ingmost probably one of these two). A very 
early specimen from the press of Mexico's prototvpographer.

Apparently unique ; title; 3 prel. 11.; Calendar 8 11. text 183 folioed 
11.; Index 5 II., on the last of which is the above imprint. This is a reimpres- 
sion with variations of the edition printed by Juan Pablos in 15G0. It was 
made by order of the Second Mexican Council, and adapted to the decrees of 
the Council of Trent. It is printed in large red and black Gothic letters, 
with musical notes and woodcut initials. 

Not mentioned by Brunet (though his continnator mentions the first 
edition), Graesse, Leclerc, nor in the Maximilian collection, which contains a 
copy of the first edition. 

It is included in the list of books printed in Mexico, known to Seiior 
Icazbalceta and Mr. Harrisse, but apparently not mentioned by any other 
bibliographer. An early specimen of Mexican typography.

29223 another copy, sm. 4to. title mended., and the last three 

leaves supplied by five leaves of MS. vellum, £4. 1606 

The excessive rarity of this book is apparent from the fact that only five 
copies have come into the market during the last fifty years, two of them 
imperfect ; and that, beyond those five, it is at present uncertain that there exists 
any other. The author held the important post of Cosmographer to the King, 
and his work contains important observations on the Astronomical System 
of the Ancient Mexicans and on the Geography and Natural History of the 
country ; treatises on the early history of the Aztecs and their settlement in 
Mexico, with a list of their kings before the Spanish conquest ; accounts 
of Columbus and Cortes, and annals of the New World down to 1606. In 
these copies the title and some leaves are mended ; a few are wormed, and the 
plate of the Dial apparently wants the pointer. A second part was promised, 
but never appeared.

nowhere in the MS. itself, but only on the paper-wrappers in the handwriting 
of the late Don J. F. Ramirez, is not mentioned by Beristain, nt)twithstanding 
the fact that a work of so much importance could not have been produced 
except by a person of some standing in Mexican literary circles. The Abbe 
Fischer, who prepared the Ramirez catalogue, read the name as " Luis Rojo." 
I read it " Lic^enciado') Hojo." If this be right, he may have been Andres 
Rojo y Calderon who published a work of totally different character in Mexico 
in 1765.

29237 VERACRUCE (Alphonsi a) Additiones Constitutionum Nova 

impressionis, 8vo. Boman letter, hf. morocco, from the Ramirez 
library, £25. {Mexico, 1559) 

Probably Unique. A very early specimen of Mexican topography. 
Fourteen numbered leaves commencing on folio 1 with " Krater Alphonsus 
a Veracruce .... Magister sacrae paginas provintialis huius novoe Hispante 
.... venerabilibus prioribus localibus eiusdem provintiae . . . Salutera," 
which epistle occupies 2 pp. and is dated, " Mexici Kalendis Novembris Anno 
1559." Fol. 2 begins with " Haec sunt quie addita, vel iramutata sunt in 
novis constitutionibus Romae editis ad illas, quje in hac nova Hispania 
tradditffi sunt priBlo." 

In the Epistle Vera Cruce begins, " cum his diebus venirent ad manus 
Constitutiones Nova3 Romte edit.T," and goes on to say that he has compared 
them with " Constitutiones NostruB ab hinc quatuor annis in Nova Hispania 
inripressiB [in 1556, by Juan Pablos]," and that the present volume contains 
his corrections, additions, etc. of the latter. 

This little tract is included in a list of the books, printed in Mexico from 
1540 to 1600, known to Icazbalccta and Mr. Harrisse (Bibl. Anier. p. 374, 
Vol. 1). The copy seen by Icazbalccta was most probably the present. 
Other bibliographers mention it solely on the authority of Mr. Harrisse.

and the author's intentions were good, but the grotesqueness and the profanity 
of the book are, in many instances, strangely remarkable.

Obispo d^ Mexico. . . . Acabose d' iynprvmir e fin d'l aiio d' mil 
y quinietos y quarenta y seys ailos (1546) 
Very rare : one of the earliest specimens of Mexican typography. 
Title contains a woodcut of a bishop preaching, over the text, and surrounded 
by a border. The signatures are a=i in eights, including title, and fe which has 
only 4 11. (making 76 11.). The " Doctrina" finishes on verso of It 4, on the lower 
portion of which we have the following colophon : Lav^ Deo. A Gloria y 
alahaqa de dios nro seiior y de su mendita madre fue impressa esta doctrina 
catholica en mexico por mndado del reiieredissimo seiior don fray Jud Cumar- 
raga : priniero ohispo de la misma ciudad : pa utilidad comun. Especial 
delos indios : porque por ella sean cathetizados los q se ouiere de baptizar : y 
ensenados los haptizados. Then follows I, which commences as follows : — 
" Prologo Proemio alos amados hermanos lectores xpianos enel suplemeto o 
adiciones del catliecismo que quiere dezir enseiiamiento del christiano." The 
signatures of the " Prologo " run from I to n in eights, thus forming 24 11. ; 
n 8 is occupied with the colophon to the whole book which we reprint above. 
This edition is evidently the one (with the "Prologo'' and final colophon 
wanting) described by Harrisse in his Additions to the Bib. Vet. Amer. pp. 
131-2, from the copy in the BiMioteca Provincial of Toledo, which he 
places under the year 1.540. As will be seen, on comparing his description 
with the present, the first colophon on verso of fe 4 agrees word for word 
with that given by him ; the number of leaves is the same, and so also is the 
number of chapters into which the work is divided, but the title is totally 
different. There can be no doubt that the title in the present copy is the 
right one, as the text commences on its verso, the last word being divided 
and continued correctly on the next page. It seems therefore to follow that 
if Harrisse has copied the title of the copy in the Provincial Library of 
Toledo correctly, either that two different titles were issued with the same 
book, or that an earlier edition without the " Prologo " and second colophon 
was issued with title as given by him. The title and second colophon of the 
present edition are correctly given by Harrisse, Bib. Amer. Vetust. p. 419, 
though his collation (60 unnumbered leaves) is incorrect, but it is evident that 
the copy he there describes had not the " Prologo." I sold the Ramirez copy 
in 1880 for £65 ; the Maximilian (Fischer) copy fetched £41 ; the Andrade 
copy 485 thai.

This author's works are extremely rake, as in consequence of the 
bitter feelings excited in the breasts of the Archbishop Palafox and the 
Viceroy, because of what the former terms their falsehoods and scandal, they 
were destroyed by the authorities. The book contains a vast amount of 
information respecting the early Missions in America in general, and amongst 
the Indians in Spanish America in particular.

August, 1655. An English army of 10,000 men was landed in St. Domingo, 
badly defeated by an interior force of Spaniards, and retreated with the loss of 
1 700 men and seven regimental flags.

Original and only Edition of this rare work, which was 
prohibited by the Royal Council of the Indies at the time of 
publication ; the order was revoked in 1729, but was again issued 
in 1731. 

The author was one of the followers of the great Hurtado 
de Mendoza, and was an actor in, as well as an eye-witness of, 
many of the events recorded in his work.

A most interesting repoit ou the behaviour of the Spanish officials and 
priests in Peru, with details frequently of an extraordinary nature. Hence 
the secret character of the work, which never achieved publication till after 
the severance from Spain.

A valuable set of dissertations upon the natives and history of the New 
"World, written by Don Benito Maria de Moxo, Archbishop of Charcas, 
whose papers fell into the hands of his nephew, and were printed by the 
latter under his own name without sufficient acknowledgment. Juras Reales 
was a Spanish official who fell into the hands of the Patriots, and underwent 
six years' imprisonment in S. America after the Revolution.

limp yelhi77i, £20. (.^ Iladrid) 1608 

PlxcKssiVELT HARE, if not unique. Temaux had the only other copy 
which is known, but it wanted the map which is contained in the present copy. 
No title-page was ever printed for this Report, which begins directlv with the 


prefatory address to the Diique de Lerma, the author's father-in law (UDt 
father, as Ternaux supposed, from the words " Padre y 8enor mio.") The 
Count ot Lemos was President of the Council of the Indies, and ihis treati>e 
seems to be the only one of a series of projected monographs on the various 
less-krioAU governments in America. The Indians called Quixos formed a 
separately administered department of the Audiencia of Quito, in the present 
republic of Ecuador, about 250 miles south of Quito.

y Exclamacion, 1737 — 2 parts in 1, sm. folio, red morocco, gilt 
edges, by Bedford, excessively rare, £16. Lima, 1736-37 

The squabble between the Spanish "West India Directors (if I may so 
name them) and the Peruvian Chamber of Commerce, although not of very 
wide interest, nevertheless involves the history ot the foundation and adminis- 
tration of the Board of Trade for the Indies, and the bases of the fiscal settle- 
ment of the new territories. It also foreshadows the c<illi>ion which led to the 
separation of the two countries.

durante el tiempo del Colouiaje Espanol, 6 vols, large 4to. map 

and plates, cloth, £4. Lima, 1869 

Very few copies ol this great national work have reached Europe. It is 

a collection of the Uelaiiuus made by the Viceroys (in obedience to a wise 



mandate of the crown) in which each outgoing: governor informed his successor 
of the nature and duties of his post, of the distribution of offices and presi- 
dencies, of the privileges of the natives, their hereditary customs and character 
— in short, statistics of everything that could be needed. The work forms a 
glorious monument of statesmanship ; and it may be conjectured that if the 
Spaniards had always formed their conduct according to these Memorias, they 
would never have lost their colonies in the New World. The Memorias extend 
from 1614 to 1796.

II, III, IV, and VI, 6 vols, small 4to. vellum, and some parts, as 
described, £2. 1791-5 

The above interesting collection of Periodical Writings is of the greatest 
rarity. Thorpe, in one of his Catiilogues, states that a gentleman had assured 
him he could meet with but one copy in his travels through Spain, for which 
he was asked upwai'ds of £30. 

It is generally found defective, and copies yary to a considerable degree. 
The second copy described above is no exception to this rule ; it wants, besides 
Vol. V, Nos. 33.3,4, in Vol. IX, which are frequently absent. Some Nos. 
have been omitted, while the pagination remains correct : and sometimes there 
are two with the same No., although the text runs on correctly. The last 
pjirt of Vol. XI is number 382, yet the first of Vol. XII receives the number 
573, from which the numeration proceeds to the end (No. 611), although 
nothing is deficient. The periodical seems to have been produced under great 
difficulties and discouragements ; it was suppressed by the Spanish govern- 
ment, as the enlightened opinions which the French Revolution had first set 
afloat were winning popularity amongst the educated youths of Spanish Peru. 
There is a sort of indignant bitterness in the title of the last volume, which is 
stated to be " dado a luz por uno de los individuos de la Sociedad."

29345 the same, Fine Paper, royal 8vo. sd. 7s 6d 1867 

Stated on the title-page to be "pul)licada bajo los auspicios del Gobieruo 
de los Estados Unidos de Venezuela," but the work seems to be almost utterly 
unknown. The entire stock has lain perdxi, since the book was printed, and 
from whatever cause (probably the fault of the Venezuelan Government), no 
copies appear to have gcme into circulation. The author presented a copy to 
the English Geographica.1 Society in 1867, and Dr. Petermann was at the same 
time made aware of its existence, but no notice was taken of the book either 
in the Reviews or Yearly Addresses. Consequently it may be said to be now 
for the first time actually published. 

This " Exploracion Oficial " is a work of original and valuable research, 
adding largely to our knowledge of the vast regions which lie about the 
Equator in South America. The author was sent out by his Government to 
discover the resources and capabilities of those largely watered but little 
known countries, and to trace the means of utilizing for commerce the network 
of rivers which no cartographer had laid down with exactitude. He triumphed 


over obstacles of every kind, and has succeeded not only in correcting aud 
angmenting to a very high degree the description previously given by 
Buniboldt and others, but in proving that (in spite of its situation) the climate 
is temperate and the rich soil fit for cultivation, while the river-system aifords 
unexampled facilities for the promotion of commercial enterprise. The 
Orinoco and the Amazon will yet play a great part in the development of 
population and wealth in the lands that lie between and about them, and every 
addition to our statistical and geographical knowledge of those rivers, their 
affluents, and their borders, is of importance.

original edition, 4 vols, double elephant folio, 435 superbly 
coloured plates, the Birds the full size of life, half bd. morocco, 
early subscribers' copy, remarkably fine, clean and large, 
£270. 1827-38 

The above is a copy of the first issue, which may be distinguished from 
the second by the numbering of the plates of the Ji/rst volume being in Arabic 
numerals. Many of the large plates having become worn, the coppers 
engraved by Lizars were retouched by Havell for a second issue ; the work of 
the latter being inferior to that of the former engraver. 

Collation : Titles to each volume, 4 leaves ; Plates 1 to 435. Plate 
254 is erroneously numbered 256, and plate 260 is numbered 240, nos. 256 and 
240 being thus repeated. With the exception of plates I-X and XV, all the 
plates in the first volume are numbered in Arabic numerals ; the numbering 
of the plates in the other three volumes is in Koman numerals.

29443 AUDUBON'S BIRDS of AMERICA, re-issued by J. W. 

Audubon, 7 vols. impl. 8vo. 500 coloured plates, half morocco, 
£35. New Yorh, 1861 

The plates in this issue are printed with a tinted background. 

In these seven volumes are contained faithful reductions of all the plates 
of the larger edition, each plate being bound in juxtaposition to its explanatory 
letterpress, thus rendering the labours of this eminent ornithologist easily 
accessible to students. 

Andnbon was the son of a Frenchman, but was by birth an American. 
His indefatigable pursuit of knowledge, bis enthusiastic devotion to the science 
of ornithology, his keenness of insight, have rendered his name for ever famous 
as that of one of the greatest naturalists the world has seen. With 
Bnffon, Cuvier, and Owen, he occupies a front rank from which no later 
investigator can dethrone him ; and at the same time he holds a position of no 
<^mall importance as one of the literary celebrities of the New World.

Letters of John Quincy Adams, Thomas B. 
Adams, Rufus King, General C. C. Pinckney, W. V. 
Murray, and others — all addressed to Joseph Pit- 
cairn the U.S. Consul at Hamburg, and dated from 
1796 to 1821 — a collection of extreme interest and 
irrfportance^ hound in a thick 4to volume, hf. riissia, 
£100. 1796-1821 

ConBdental letters, chiefly on the interests of America at 
home and abroad, the wars of the French Republic and of 
Napoleon, the diplomatic and military stiniggles of that eventful 
time. They are all of the highest interest ; not flimsy and ill- 


written notes such as constitute epistolary correspondence in our 
day, but well-written and copious communications, marked by 
all the qualities of literary style, and treating on matters of 
great consequence and importance. 

The Letters in this collection may be recapitulated thus : — 

Adams (John Quincy) American Minister at various Courts 
of Europe, and afterivards President, 57 Letters, written from the 
Hague, Berlin, Toplitz, St. Petersburg, Ghent, ranging from 
August, 1796 to November, 1814. 

Adams (Thomas B.) brother of John Quincy, 25 Letters — the 
first nine being from the Hague or Berlin, 1796-1798, the rest 
from Quincy or Philadelphia, 1729-1801. 

King (Rufus) American Minister in London, 52 Letters, 
admirably expressive of the character of a man of the highest 
order, ranging from October, 1796 to April, 1803. 

Murray (William Vans) American Minister at the Hague, 
16 Letters, from December, 1799 to August, 1801. 

PiNCENET (General Charles C.) Minister to France, 4 Let- 
ters ; March to July, 1797. 

Bourne (Sylvanus) 7 Letters from Amsterdam, 1814. 

Welsh (Thomas) 12 Letters from Berlin, 1799. 

Pickering (Timothy) a Letter, and a signed circular ; 
Madison (James) a signature ; Letters of R. R. Livingston, 
J. L. Cathcart, Henry M. Rutledge, John Russell, B. Dandridge, 
Amos Wray, William Porter, jr. ; besides 7 letters of the Com- 
mandant Bresson, and 2 of Alex. Lameth, in French. 

The calm philosophical observations of the two Adamses, 
concerning home and foreign politics, the sedate elegance of 
their language ; the vigorous and incisive style of Rufus King, 
well suited to the boldness and sagacity of his intellect ; the 
business-like lucidity and straightforwardness of Murray's 
letters ; combined with the nature of the subjects on which they 
treat and the mighty changes which were revolutionizing the 
face of the world in their time, promise a banquet of the 
finest intellectual enjoyment to any one who shall study the 
correspondence which Mr. Pitcairn so carefully preserved.

The first special map of North Carolina, the separation of which was 
looked upon with great disfavour by the planters of " Ould Virginia." The 
coast- line extends from Cape Henry to Cape Fear, and the interior is delineated 
to as far as from about Murfreesboro in the north to about Elizabeth Town in 
the South. — This is an article which ought to be secured by a public library. It 
is remarkable that it was prepared in 1657, six years before the patent was 
given to Lord Clarendon and others for the establishment of a colony.

Vert rare. It is the 6rst book published by Increase Mather, and is 
wanting in most American libraries. Its great importance appears from the 
fact that the future salvation of the twelve tribes is demonstrated. The 
Epistle to the Reader, signed by John Davenport, New Haven, 1667, dwells 
on the delightfulncss of Christian life, when (as in New England) all the 
Christians love one another. The Quakers and the poor old women called 
witches had ample experience of this brotherly love from the Mathers and 
their tribe.

The Introduction, which is one of Cotton Mather's best pieces of English 
composition, contains a fine theory of the use of blank verse ; but the trans- 
lation is a mean and poor one, — something like Tate and Brady without 
rhymes. Tiie text is printed as prose, but the metrical pauses are marked 
by upright lines, thus — 

O what the blessings of the man || who is not walking in || the counsel of 
the men that are || set for impiety |1. 

The translator took great pride in this bald and graceless perversion of the 
Hebrew text.

" This fearless exposing of the non-importation agreement and schemes 
of certain 'Well disposed' Merchants of Boston is now valuable for many 
more points than when published in 1769. John Mein, an enterprising 
Scotchman, who had established a good miscellaneous business in Boston as 
printer, stationer, and bookseller, declined to sign the non-importation 
agreement, and was consequently ' posted ' by name in the Papers by the 
' Well Disposed.' To show the trickery of the well-disposed merchants, 
Mein printed here the names of the ' Well Disposed,' with the full manifests 
of many ships arriving. These lists give the names of the hypocritiLal 
consignees, and are now valuable sources of information as to the state of 
the Colony and its trade and traders."

Very rare. The author says that the greater part of his material 
consisted ot the manuscript journals of his uncle, Mr. William Bradford 
(the second Governor of the Colony), written between 1620 and 1646. He 
had also had the use of Edward Winslow's papers. It is this which gives 
its chief value to the work, which remains a store-house of important facts, 
and of minute details, in the history of New England.

Thomas Morton had already spent nine years in New England, and 
gives an interesting account, not the less valuable that he had no love for, 
and was hated by, the gloomy bigots of the colony. The first two parts 
of the volume are all about the country, its productions, an.! the natives. 
The third part relates his squabbles with the Puritans of New Plymouth, 
who accused him of all sorts of profanity and vice, and sent him back a 
prisoner to Old England. Little notice was taken of the matter at home, and 
he returned again, after the date of this book, " several times," as N^al says, 
" and at last ended his miserable life at Pascatauqua." In the account of 
these transactions, Morton speaks of himself as " Mine Host of Ma-re-mount." 
Ben Jonson wrote a satirical poem upon his adversaries, which is printed 
here on pp. 146-149. The power of his enemies was no doubt sufficient to

Privately printed, 1884 

The New England Company for promoting Christianity amongst the 
American Indians was first established by the Long Parliament in 1649. 

The first pilgrim fathers led the way to America in the " Mayflower," 
in 1620. The celebrated John Eliot followed in 1631. Through the works 
of Eliot, and the publication of his Eleven tracts (here fully described), the 
wants of the North American Indians became known in England. The 
activity of the N. E. C. still continues, although since 1778 traasferred from 
the New England States to the Canadian Union.

sm. 4to. large copy in hf. calf, rare, £5. 55 Stockholm, 1759 

This book is not only \ery rare, but is also very little known to 
American collectors, though it is really one of the important items in a good 
library of tlie works that relate to the United States. To the historical 
student, Acrelius is indispensable, much of the matter contained in this 
volume being nowhere else found.

29663 another copy, sm. 4to. 5 copper plates (the View of 

Niagara, and theplate of William Penn and the Indians, wanting), 
old calf neat, very rare, £6. 1702 

This excessively rare •work is of the highest interest to American 
collectors. It begins with a general description of America, and in the 
account of Virginia divides it into three regions: New Sweden, New England, 
and New Netherland. One plate depicts the Falls of Niagara. The work 
includes 32 pp. of Vocabularies. Campanius does not omit to mention the 
old Norse discovery of America. He was grandson of John Campanius, who 
translated Luther's Catechism into Virginian. 

The separate plates consist of three pictures : 1 , View of Niagara ; 2, 
Meeting of Penn and the Indians ; 3, group of three savages, designed hy P. 
Lindstrom, 1655; and of four maps : 1, a general map of America ; 2, one of 
Nova Suecia, after Nic. Visscher ; 3, one of English America ; and 4, one of 
Nova Suecia designed in 16.54-55 by Lindstrom. All the plates were engraved 
by C-ampanius in 1702, at Stockholm.

A curious book, by the father of the celebrated Emanuel Swedenborg, 
on Pennsylvania, and the Swedes in America. It contains many interesting 
notes on the labours of the Swedish pastors and their connection and co-ope- 
ration with English fellow-workers, the struggles of the colony and the 
Indians. The book is mentioned by Rich, but otherwise seems to be almost 
unknown, and is very scarce.

The author says that " treachery is the staple commodity of the four 
New England Provinces." The work contains a wonderful account of the 
Falls of Upper Cohos, " where water is consolidated without frost by pressure, 
by swiftness, between the pinching, sturdy rocks, to such a degree of 
induration, that no iron crow can be forced into it."

J. Bellamie, 1622 

The excessive i-arity and intinnsic value of this account of 
the Pilgrim Fathers are well known, and the narrative of 
" theu* difficult passage [in ' The Mayflower '], their safe arivall, 
their joyful building of, and comfortable planting themselves in 
the now well defended Towne of New Plimouth " is the first 
record of the history of New England. There was no copy in 
- the magnificent library of Mr. Brinley, nor has the book 
appeared in any of the sales for a great number of years. The 
book is indeed so rare that the reprint made for the Massa- 
chusetts Historical Society was done from the transcript of a 
transcript, not quite perfect ; although it was completed in a 
later volume on the discovery of the only one known to be 
existent in America. Mourt's Relation ought to be the 
foundation or key-stone of every Boston library. 

The name of Mourt (or Morton, as has been suggested) is 
simply that of an editor. The Relation " writ by the severall 
actors themselves, after their plain and rude manner," is in seven 
separate narratives, only the last two of which are signed, one 
by E. W., the other by R. C. (Winslow and Cushman). They 
are preceded by " Certaine useful Advertisements " sent to the 
pilgrims at their setting out, signed by 1. R. ; and the two 
preliminary leaves which follow the title are " To his much 
respected Friend Mr. I. P." signed by R. G., and " To the 
Reader," signed by G. Mourt — the only place where this name 
apjiears. The doughty deeds of Captain Miles Standish were 
fiist made known bv fliis Relation.

Londini, Geor. Bishop, 1605 

Excessively rare. The oldest book in this catalogue, and, 
with the exception of Gosnold's Voyage (1602), the earliest 
voyage by Englishmen to the lands of New England. Conse- 
quently it is a work that deserves venei-ation in the two or three 
American libraries in which it is found, and one that must 
arouse envy in all the others. The discovery of the eastern 
shores of New England by Gosnold and Waymouth ( — for the 
exploration of Cabot was of uncertain character and had no 
result — ) like the earlier discovery on the western shore of 
New Albion (Upper California) by Sir Francis Drake, was a 
momentous event in the history of the United States. After 
those pioneers. Captain John Smith followed, then came the 
Pilgrim fathers, and finally arose the great Republic which has 
realized the magnificent idea that prompted the two names of 
New Albion and New England, and has united the eastern and 
western territories in one magnificent whole. 

The Massachusetts Historical Society printed Rosier's 
Relation in 1843, but only from a transcript procured in 
England, no copy being then known to exist in America.

With Smith's True Relation of 1608, and these two works 
(which were printed together, as the title of the " Map " 
indicates), the real history of the English colonies in America 
may be said to begin, as the settlements made between 1584 
and 1607 had proved abortive. The Rev. Wilham Symonds 
edited Smith's " Map," and added the second part by combining 
the manuscript relations of Dr. Russell, Thomas Studley, 
Anas Todkill, Jeffra Abbot, Richard Wiefin, Will Prettiplace, 
I^athaniel Powell, Richard Pots, and others of the colonists. 
It is a circumstance of extraordinary rarity to find the 
genuine map in this book. It is the original impression of 
the same plate that was afterwards used for Smith's General 
History of Virginia and Purchas' Pilgrims, but in the former 
instance, the reference " Smith, 41 " was added in the right- 
hand bottom corner, and in the latter, the reference " 1690 " 
super-added in the upper left-hand corner.

It is very seldom that a copy of Smith's Virginia contains 
all the maps and portraits. 

The two portraits indeed are so rare that bibliographers 
disagree whether they were issued with the book, or not. 
The compiler of the catalogue of the Hath Libraiy says of 
his copy, that " it certainly never possessed the portraits of 
the Duchess of Richmond and Matoaka, which are inserted 
in some copies, but were not originally issued with the book."

Title and " To the Reader " as 'preliminary leaves ;

MS. notes on the margins, and containing his drawing 
of a map dated 1650, to show the accessibility of 
California hy inland-route, sd. £28. 1650 

Williams was the author of the book ; but Mr. John Farrer, 
to whom he alludes in the preface, supplied all the material. 
N"o map was issued with this first edition, nor yet with the second, 
hut Farrer s MS. design was engraved with slight alterations in 
1651, for issue with the third edition in that year. The distor- 
tion of geographical truth in the map, taken in connection with 
the MS. notes (in which the writer complains bitterly that 
Williams had omitted a good deal of the original matter, so as 
to serve the interests of the new Carolanians rather than those 
of the old Virginians), shows that one powerful idea in Mr. 
Farrer's mind was to unite New Albion (California) with Vir- 
ginia. In fact, he says that a small expedition would be able to 


mai'ch in eight, ten, or fourteen days from the Virginian settle- 
monts to New Albion, by which he meant the New Albion (Upper 
California) of Sir Francis Drake (1578) on the Pacific coast. 
The MS. notes and the printed text itself prove that something 
had been heard of the great Mississippi river, which it was 
supjjosed fell into the South Sea.

Farrer's complaint that Williams had omitted many things 
about the culture of silkworms and vines in Virginia had 
evidently reached the latter, and caused the addition of the 
second part. The map was probably published by Farrer 
himself for insertion in the third edition (1651).

others, including some printed at Oxford, and several rare Kon-Conformist

This first edition is very rare, only the present copy and 
one other having apparently come into the English market during 
the last thirty years. Even Mr. Brinley had none, although 
there were two copies of the second edition (1635) in his collec- 
tion. — This work is particularly interesting for its map— to 
which, by reason of its correctness and fullness of detail, no 
previous map is in any way comparable ;— and for its short Dic- 
tionary or " Nomenclator," occupying five pages at the end, 
which takes precedence of all the linguistic labours of Eliot, 
Roger Williams, and others.

Paris, F. Lambert, 1664 

Excessively rare: a copy is priced 500fr. in a recent French catalogue. 
The dedication to Colbert is dated from the " Ville des Trois Rivieres," 
where the author was governor for the King of France. He was one of the 
oldest inhabitants of New France, and must have gone out with Champlain 
very early in the century. No one has given a fuller and more exact 
description, from actual life, of the manners and customs of various tribes of 
Red Indians. But the work is so rare that even Mr. Field, in his special 
bibliography, does not mention it. 

Boucher makes the following interesting statement concerning the 
colonists of New England. " The Knglish, our neighbours, expended at the 
beginning a heavy outlay on their settlements : tlaey threw into them a 
considerable number of immigrants, and at present we may reckon that they 
have fifty thousand men who carry arms : it is a marvel to behold their 
territories now : everything may be found there which can be had in Europe, 
and cheaper by half. They build a quantity of ships of all sorts ; they make 
good use of the iron mines ; they have handsome towns, with postal and 
transport services between them ; gentlemen's carriages as in France : those 
who speculated originally now find their profits coming in. That country is 
no way different from ours ; what has been done there may be done here

The JVouuelle Decouverte contains Hennepin's Travels and his Exploration 
of the Course of the Mississippi ; the Nouveau Voyage, which is a continuation 
of the former, is his account of La Salle's unfortunate Journey, and a 
description in extenso of the customs, manners, character, and superstitions of 
the Red Men. Hennepin was persecuted, and has been severely criticized, 
chiefly on account of his opposition to the Jesuits, and because he counselled 
William III (in whose dominions he had sought for the freedom and safety 
which he could not find in France) to send out missionaries to the New 
World. His enemies considered such advice from a monk as heretical and 
detestable ; while we are led by it to admire Hennepin, who had no bigoted 
horror for other sects than his own.

He had accompanied Cavelier de la Salle in his last voyage, 1684-87 (to 
discover by sea the Mississippi mouth to which he had previously descended 
by river-passage in his journey of 1681), and made his way by land, after the 
assassination of his chief, to Canada. The map was the first publication of 
the fruits of Cavelier's last two voyages, and also the first fairly correct 
representation of the course of the Mississippi as far as the sea.

29873 [GORDON (Guillermo) Historia de las Misiones 
Jesuitas en la California baja desde su estableci-

MS. account or diary .^ begun at La Paz in 1734 and 
ended at Santiago in 1737, 5J. £70. California., 1737 

This is the original autograph diary kept by William 
Gordon, one of the Jesuit Missionaries employed in the conver- 
sion of the Indians. Although his name does not appear 


anywhere, and there is a leaf wanting at each end of the book, 
we know from comparing the text with certain statements 
of Clavigero that the writer was the Hispano- Scottish Jesuit 
William Gordon. The diary serves admirably as a continuation 
of Venegas, whose account of the Mission at La Paz breaks off 
with the retreat of Gordon, after the mai'tyrdom of Tamaral 
and Carranco. The work is divided into 32-i paragraphs, of 
which the first two and part of the third are wanting. The 
author gives at the beginning an outline of the establishment 
of the first Missions in Lower California in 16'J7, a description 
of the several nations which inhabited the Peninsula, with a 
sketch of their habits, customs, and religion. The author does 
not tell us what year he came to California, but in 1734 we find 
him already charged with the Misiones de Nuestra Senora 
del Pilar. 

The stirring events between 1734 and 1737 are described 
with a singleness of purpose and a simplicity of manner beyond 
all description, reminding the reader of Defoe's magical nar- 

The character of the Indians, the privations of the Mis- 
sionaries, the hardships of their daily life, their conflicts with 
the civil and military authorities, are all brought before the 
reader in the most vivid and at the same time most unpreten- 
tious manner. 

The volume is certainly a very charming one, and not only 
merits publication, but even an English translation would 
probably be popular in California.

This splendid and all important collection relating to the 
principal missions from New Spain was formed by the late 
Don J. F. Ramirez at the cost of much labour and money and 
contains all he was able to gather on this subject during forty 
years. It contains over 300 pp. relating to California, about as 
many on the subject of Sonora, and nearly 1000 on New Mexico 
and Texas. The contents will speak for themselves.

Costanso's account of the S. Carlos and S. Antonio 
expedition along the coasts of Northern California is excessively 
rare. Junipero Serra was with the expedition. This printed 
piece and the annexed MS. sobre las nuevas Misiones, form the 
first account of the Spanish settlements in Upper California.

historical matter relating chiefly to Upper or New 
California, vellum.^ from the Ramirez collection.^ £84. 

Mexico, about 1780-85 

A most important body of MSS. Documents, which ought 
to be secured by an American library. This transcript, or rather 
these transcripts, of the original writings, were made by and 
for the historian Manuel de la Vega for incorporation in the 
archives of the Franciscan convent of ^Mexico. The first and 
the fourth parts only appear to have been printed (in 1857) in 
the Documentos historicos Mejicanos, but not the remainder ; and 
these volumes may be looked upon as holding the rank of 
original codices of great importance to the Californian student.

Barcelona, 1754 
Excessively rake, and of considerable importance to the Californians. 
Some passages on p. 220 make it appear that the writer was identical with 
the Jesuit Jose Ortcjja who published a Cora Dictionary at Mexico in 1732 ; 
but the prologue shows that he incorporated in a continuous narrative the 
reports of others besides himself. He laboured for thirty years in Lower 
California, and in the regions between the Colorado and the Gila rivers ; and 
on page 242 we learn that he had the use of the MS. papers of Eusebio Kino, 
in which '' estan coordenados sus viajes, empressas, y dcscubrimieutos." The 
account which he gives of Kino's life and labours contains references to 
monumental remains of earlier inhabitants in those regions ; and is the chief 
source of biographical information concerning that distinguished geographer. 
It comprises about 100 pages, and forms one of the three libros into which the 
book is divided. The author enlarges upon purely historical events and 
anthropological facts to a greater degree than most theological writers.

This is not merely a religious biography, but a most interesting account of 
the Travels of this zealous Missionary and his companions in Mexico and 

Serra was born in the Isle of Mallorca, in 1713. After visiting Mexico 
he went to California in 1771 and founded several Missions there, dying in 
1784. Palou succeeded Serra in the Presidency of the Californian Missions. 

29888 Jesuits in New Spain, California, the Philippines, and

inflicted by the Spaniards, and including accounts of settle- 
ments in California and discoveries on the North West Coast 
of America, in a folio parcel, £9. Mexico, etc. 1750-75

Islas Californias, y uno de s^^s primeros Conquistadores, escrita 
por Juan Joseph de Villavicencio, sra. 4to. vellum, £4. 

Mexico, 1752 
Vert rare. Juan de Ugarte was a Jesuit missionary, who resiiled ia 
California from 1700 to 1730, and obtained the reputation of an apostle, or 
" the Father of the Indians." One of his great labours was the exploration of 
the Gulf of California to its northernmost extremity, in which beseems to have 
entered the Colorado, and sailed for some distacce up its waters.

The first map is one of California only ; but as that name was utcd in a 
more limited sense than at present, the second map, which is general, supplies 
the deticiencies. This second map is a very curious one, showing the entire 
Pacific shores of Asia and America, with records of the latest explorations by 
the Spaniards, Russians, and English, especially on the upper Californiaa 
shores, and Columbia. 

The work compiled in 1739, by the Jesuit Venegas, -was after hi- death 
recast, completed, augmented, and corrected by Marcos Antonio Burriel. The 
name of the latter does not appear in the book.

Excessively rare. Mr. Brinley had a bad, half-bound, 
copy, " the best that he could obtain in forty years' trying," 
and it fetched 150 dollars at his sale. The present is a large 
and good copy, in Bedford's finest binding, and is probably the 
only copy that can come into the market for the next forty years. 
It is a work of the most exceptional rarity, as well as a work of 
singular intrinsic interest.

This pretended American MS. is in reality a child's copy-book, full of 
rnde drawings by a dirty-minded (Jermau school-boy, which having fallen into 
the hands of a missionary in the wilds of America, and by him been presented 
to the Marquis de Paulmy, was taken by the worthy Abb^ to be a genuine Indian 
pictographic MS. Its German origin is established by the fact, that on page 
64 the word " wurst," on 185 "Johann," and 119 " Konig." are plainly 
written. In consequence of the discovery of its real character the book has 
been withdrawn from circulation. 

Bound in at the end of the volume is J. Petzholdt's Buch der Wilden, 
Dresden, 1861, in German and French.

Excessively rare : The chief test of the original map, as 
distinguished from the London reproduction, is that the range 
of " White Hills" is properly so named on it, while in the latter 
it was misinscribed " Wine Hills." — In the present instance, we 
have the book entirely in its original condition and binding,

29967 the same, sm. 4to. wanting leaf of license and 

all the second Narrative^ no map, the paper discoloured, 
6f/. £3. 10s 1677 

Very rare : The condition of No. 29966, in its original 
binding, and the fact that it formed part of the Sunderland 
library from perhaps the very year of its appearance, go far to 
lead to the inference that no map was published witli the London 



book originally. — The work was printed in Boston after March 
29, 1677, on which date the license was given ; and there is no 
reason to suppose that the impression could not have been com- 
pleted in six weeks' time, say by the 10th of May. The voyage 
from New England to Old England was not quite so lengthy in 
time as people have supposed ; it seldom occupied more than a 
month ; and thus the English reprinter had ample time to get 
Sir Roger Lestrange's license on June 27. But the map was a 
different matter ; it is not likely to have been issued with any of 
the earlier copies of the Boston edition, and the English repro- 
duction of it would similarly have been prepared for only the 
later copies of the London edition.

Svo. containing the Journals and letters of the Missionaries in 
Canada dioring a most interesting period, hf. calf, £5. 

Quebec, 1858 
Nothing can be more valuable as a record of the manners and customs 
of the North American Indians, than the detailed and exact information 
contained iti the collected narratives of men like the Jesuits, admittedly 
earnest, learned and intelligent, full of practical wisdom, and possessing 
opportunities and talents which no single traveller could ever combine.

fine copy in red morocco extra, gilt edges, by Chambolle-Duru, 
£8. 10s Paris, Gramoisy, 1668 

Very kare. The prefatory epistle is dated Kebec, 18 Septembre, 1662, 
and signed by Hierosme Lalemant. This Relation is one of the rarest 
and at the same time most interesiing accounts furnished by the Jesuits 
concerning the manners of the Red Men of North America. After describing 
an expedition for scalps, the writer makes a satirical reflexion (which has in 
our days become a hackneyed text of philosophizers), in the words — " ces 
pauvres barbares, aussi glorieux dans la victoire de quatre hommes que les 
grands Princes dans la mort de dix mille."

Paris, chez Claude Sonnius, 1636 

Of the excessive rarity of this book, an idea may be formed 
from the fact that the late Mr. Edwin Tross sought many 
years for a copy before he could succeed, so as to add a reprint 
of the Histoire to his reprint of the Voyage. In the preface he 
states that "on a offert, durant des annees, 1200 fr. d'un 
exemplaire de I'Histoire, sans pouvoir s'en procurer un seul." 
This statement has reference to twenty years ago, and as 


valuable old books have since then increased remarkably in price 
as well as in rarity, the cost of this copy is relatively low. 

Only two copies are known, besides this, containing the 
four pages at the end, which give the native words and the 
music of a Huron song and a Souriquois hymn.

Excessively rare. There was no copy in the Brinley collection, 
notwithstanding its special richness in books of this kind. As a rare work of 
American interest, and as a liturgical curiosity, this volume is one which 
must awaken considerable interest.

Including an interesting letter of the Curate of Atlacomulco on the 
Mazahua language. 

The Cahita and Opata are languages of Northern Mexico, the Teguima 
being a dialect of the latter ; the Mazahua is a dialect of the Otomi language 
of Central Mexico.

30099 Aguirre (Manuel) Doctrina Christiana, y Platicas Doctrinales,

Exceedingly rare. The Opata dialect is spoken in Sonora, Mexico. 
No copy is mentioned by Brunei, Brasseur de Bourbourg, Graesse, Leclerc, 
A'^ater, or Salva. The Maximilian copy fetched £6. 10s, in 1869. Collation : 
Title and 2 prel. 11. ; 162 pp. ; Index (1 leaf.)

vulgarmente llamada Opata, 8vo. wants last leaf of Index, fine 
clean copy, vellum, £45. Mexico, Miguel de Bibera, 1702 

Excessively rare. Title ; 7 prel. 11. ; text, with index (251 numbered 
11.). The author was an Italian Jesuit and Missionary in the province of 
Sonora lin which state the dialect is spoken) for twenty -six years. His work 
is not mentioned by Brunet, Graesse, Brasseur de Bourbourg, Salva, Leclerc, 
or Vater, and there was no copy of it in the Fischer, Maximilian, or Andrade 
collection. In fact, I do not find any mention of it by any bibliographer, 
except Beristain de Souza, and the compiler of the Ramirez catalogue. 

30101 LOMBARDO (Natal) Arte de la lengua Teguima, llamada vul- 
garmente Opata, sm. 4to. Autograph MS. neatly written, 
£10. 10s About 1690 

The value of this MS. may be estimated from the fact that perhaps no 
more than two copies are known to be at present extant of the edition which 
was printed in 1702. It is the only Opata Grammar. 

Otomi : 

30102 CARCERES (Fray Pedro de) Artezilla de la lengua Otomi 
cogida de las migajas de los padres benemeritos della, y del 
comadillo ofrecido por el menor de los menores . . . Recopilada 
pol el pe. F. Po. de Carceres, g. de queretaro, sm. 4to. 114 j)p. 
MS. in Gothic handwriting of the latter part of the 16th century, 
beautifully executed, and imitating the printed Gothic letters so 
well that, at first sight, it might rather be taken for a printed 
booh than for a MS. sd. £15. .'' Queretaro, about 1580 

This is undoubtedly a volume of considerable interest and importance. 
The author was unknown to Beristain and other special bibliographers, and his 
name is not recorded by Siguenza and Boturini. Yet he must have been a scholar 
of high mark, when we consider that this is the first Grammar ever composed 
of the difficult Otomi language, in spite of which fact it is an elaborate and 
extensive treatise. Pedro de Carceres or Caceres may perhaps be sought for in 
some history of the Franciscan missions ; he describes his work very modestly 
as compiled from the scraps of the v.rll-deserving Fathers and his own mite. 


Otomi — continued. 

30103 ExAMEN critico de la Gramatica Otomi de Neve y Molina ; 
Discurso critico de la Doctrina Otomi, sm. 4to. original MS. 
14:0 pp. scl. £6. 10s Mexico, about 1770 

Both works by a single anonymous writer, who tells us, however, that 
he is a native of Otomi, who by forty years of continental study had made 
himself a perfect master of this, the most difficult of all American languages. 

The first of the two treatises is one of the bitterest and severest critiques 
that have ever been written, and exposes the weakness and defectiveness of 
Neve's Grammar. Both the treatises contain not only valuable information on 
the language of the inhabitants of the Mexican Valley before the immigration 
of the Toltecs and the rise of the Mexicans — still largely in use among the 
natives— but also interesting historical notices.

— 2 vols, in 1, 12mo. finely written MS. 458 p>P- ^^^ ^^*^ original 
stamped binding, £21. Vera Cruz, about 1600 

Both these works are in the Othomi language, written about the end of 
the sixteenth century, in a small, clear, and beautiful handwriting, with titles 
and initials in red. The first work is translated from Gaona's NahuatI text 
printed at Mexico in 1582 ; the second is anonymous, but may be a translation 
from some well-known work. The value and interest of this little volume, 
from a linguistic point of view, are very great.

of characters, which has been since retained.

Pimentel, who examined this MS., declared that the language was 
Matzahua (there being no specification in the book itself of the speech it refers 
to), and the book was accordingly so lettered. Bat the Mexican scholar 
Icazbalceta inclined to the belief that it is Otomi, and a comparison of the 
text of the Lord's Prayer, which is given by Bancroft in both those tongues, 
makes it almost indisputable that the vocabulary here is Otomi, not JIazahua. 
Its interest and value are in any case yery great. The state and condition of 
the MS. leave nothing to desire. We have been unable to discoTer anything 
respecting the author,

original pieces in MS. and three printed ones ; the MSS. 
occupying two hundred and six leaves, hf. bd. £28. 1580-1847 

An INTERESTING and valuable collection chiefly of official papers in 
cases of legal process, etc., but including also a .Miracle Play on the subject 
of Abraham, in Mexican and Spanish. It compi-ises further the two following 
printed documents which we have not seen mentioned by any bibliographer. 

The first is — Mota. Alabado en Mexicano, que contiene los principales 
Mistcrios de nuestra Santa Fe, compuesto por el Br. Dn. Jose de la Mota, 
Cura . . . de Tepecoacuilco . . . reimpresso en Mexico jpor Zuniga, 
1809. 2 leaves in 8vo. 

The other is a Proclamation in Mexican and Spanish, signed F. S. 
Tepca, dated Toluca, S: pt. 25, 1847, in which he calls upon the Indians to 
rise against the North-American invader : a single sheet broadside.

Very rare. The Fischer copy is apparently the only other copy — and 
that a bad one, wanting the two leaves of Index — which has hitherto turned up 
in the London market. None of the bibliographers has mentioned the book, 
except Brunet's continuator,and he, having only seen the Fischer copy, omits to 
mention the two last leaves of Index, which must be extraordinarily rare.

printed Grammar of the Aztec tongue may also be pointed ont. I have 
recently sold a copy, with the title in facsimile, for £40.

No perfect copy known ; in fact, the book is of such extraordinaiy rarity, 
that only some five copies altogether are believed to be extant ; and so little 
was known about the existence of the volume, that even the last edition of 
Brunet records it only under the false name of Olmos.

30168 SAHAGUN (Bernardino de) Sermones in Mexicano, 
folio, neatly tcritten Original Manuscript on paper 
made hy the Indians from the Agave, such as they 
used before the discovery of their country hy the 
Spaniards^ 95 leaves, hd. from the Ramirez collection, 
in red morocco case, £300. Mexico, 1540 

On the first page it has the following title in the hand- 
Tvriting of Father Sahagun, the lower half of which is 
wanting : — 

Siguense unos sermones de dominicas y de sanctos en 
lengua Mexicana : no traduzidos de sermonario alguno sine 
compuestos nuevamente a la medida de la capacidad de los 
Indios : breves en materia y en lenguage congruo venusto y 
llano facil de entender para todos los que le oyeren altos y baxos 
prineipales y macegolas, hombres y mugeres. Compusieronse el 
ano de 1540 ; anse comenzado a corregir y anadir este ano de 
1563, en este mes de Julio infra octava Visitationis. El autor , 
los somete a la correccion de la madre sancta Yglesia romana 
con todas las otras obras que en esta lengua Mexicana a 
compuesto. fray bnardio. de Sahagun. Some leaves are 
wanting at the beginning, and there are two loose leaves. 
Then comes the following note in the handwriting of Father 
Sahagun : — Siguense unos sermones breves en la lengua 
Mexicana, el autor de ellos los somete a la correccion de la 
madre sancta Yglesia, c5 todas las demas obras suyas, son para 
todo el ano de dominicas y Sanctos ; no estan coi'regidos : fray 
bnardio. Sahagun. 

On folio 88, the dominical sermons conclude with another 
note in Mexican in Father Sahagun's handwriting, and signed 
by him ; then follows a blank leaf, and on the following com- 
mences a " Sanctoral" on six leaves, the end wanting. The 
differences in the writing between the body of the book and the 
corrections made in 1563, are easily explained by the 23 years' 
interval. When he wrote the work first he was only about 45 
years of age ; he was not far from seventy when he began to 
make his additions and corrections. This MS. is undoubtedly 
one of the most curious and interesting volumes in the Mexican 
language ever offered for sale. In his know ledge of the Aztec 
language and literature, Sahagun has prolably never had an 



equal. The historical work which he wrote concerning the 
Mexican empire, and which has been published by Bustamante, 
brought down upon him the abuse of his fellows, both lay and 
clerical, for aiding, as they said, to perpetuate the idolatry of 
the nation. 

30169 SAHAGUN. Exercicios quotidianos en lengua 
Mexicana, sm. 4to. MS. plainly written^ 86 pp. sd. 
£18. Mexico^ 1574 — transcribed Sec. XVII 

The MS. begins thus : — " Comienza un exercicio en lengua 
Mexicana, sacado del sancto Evangelic y distribuido por todos 
los dias de la semana contiene meditaciones devotas muy prove- 
chosas para cualquier xpiano que se quiere llegar a Dios." 
At the end, there is the inscription : " Este exercicio halle entre 
los yndios, no se quien le hizo ni quien se le dio tenia muchas 
faltas e incongruidades mas con verdad se puede dezir que se 
hizo de nuevo que no que se emendo. Este afio de 1674, fray 
Bernardino de Sahagun." 

The MS. is in perfect preservation, and the handwriting is 
clear and legible — in fact, too boldly written to be the autograph 
of Sahagun. This is probably identical with the single MS. of 
the work which is mentioned by Beristain as being in his time 
in the College of St. Gregory at Mexico, and which he seems 
to have considered the original, just as Ramirez believed this 
to be.

On the verso of the 16th leaf is the signature of Father 

On the verso of the 31st leaf the original treatise concludes, 
and on the following commences the twenty-six additions on 
thirteen leaves. On the verso of the title-page to the additions 
is a " Prologo " in Spanish, from which it appears that Father 
Sahagun made the last corrections and additions to this work 
in 1579.

The strange cosmogony and theogony of the Central American races 

will always excite interest and speculation. The Abbe treats curiously upou 

the origin and affinities of those peoples in a learned introduction.

Probably the work of Francisco Ximenez, or of Damian Delgado. There 
is very little material accessible for philological study on the subject of the 
Quiche language, yet its importance as the tongue of the civilized architectural 
people of Central America is very great. The Maya and Quiche languages 
are the oldest dialects of an important linguistic family unconnected with the

and verbs, 199-292; Confessionario in the dialect of Santa Maria Petapa, 

There is no indication of the name of the author, nor of the time in which 
it was written ; although from the fact that he sometimes refers to Aguero, 
its date must be posterior to 1666.

parts are exceedingly rare, but more especially the first. The second

Excessively rare. It contains a biography of nearly 4000 writers,

volumes are edited by Rafael Enriquez Trespalacios Beristain, a relative of 
the author, who died before the work was finished.

This bibliographical handbook, embracing a collection of about 1800 
works, may be considered the chief, if not the only one of its kind. The 
author's notes are judicious and valuable, and have an interest beyond even 
the actual subject of the Essay. Collectors of Americana of every kind will 
derive pleasure and profit from a labour that evinces a wide range of study 
and experience. The frequent inaccuracies that appear in the transcription 
of titles in foreign languages may be merely typographical.

Very rare. The author's plain prose is interspersed here and there 
■with eulogies in verse upon the greater and minor lights of the New England 
Church. This work, also known from its head-line title as Wonder-working 
Providence of !?iox's Saviour, is anonymous, but the preface is signed 
T. H., which might stand as the initials of Thomas Horiker. The American 
authorities are, however, agreed that it was written by Edward Johnson. It 
has sometimes passed under the name of Gorges, from the fact that it was 
embodied four years later in " American painted to the Life . . by Ferdinando 

30241 CHROXICOX XUREMBERGEXSE, anctore Hartmanno 

Schedel cum Supplemento " De Sarmatia," royal folio, first 
EDITION, 2 world-maps and about 2000 spirited looodcuts, by 
Michel Wolgemnth, Master of Albert Durer, and by Wilhelm 
Fleydenwiirf, bds. £14. 10s Nurembergce, A. Koberger, 1493 

Editio Princeps. The book has a kind of claim to be reckoned amongst 
Americana, namely because it records a discovery of certain savages which 
has been taken to indicate some transatlantic exploit of Martin Behaim. 

It is a volume of extraordinary interest, embellished with upwards nf 
2250 woodcut engravings of the principal events, characters, and cities, 
described in the work, executed in a spirited style by the ingenious artists 
Michael Wolgemuth and "William PleydenwurfF, as the last colophon in the 
work informs us. This Colophon is given at length in the Bibliotheca 
Spenceriana, where will be found the fullest and liveliest description of the 
volume, with faint facsimiles of a few of the Cuts. A colophon denotes Hart- 
mann Schedel as the author or editor. The present copies are perfect with 
the unnumbered leaves which ai"e frequently wanting. 

One of tlie most striking pictures in the volume is on folio 264 (Latin 
edition), a grotesque Dance of Death, containing five very large figures.

EDITION, tvifh the excessively rare map^ containing in 
the corner the genuine portrait of Captain James, 

fine copy^ red morocco extra^ gilt edges^ hy Mackenzie^ 
£35. 1633 

This book is in any state a rare one, but when with the 
map it is a desideratum rarely acquirable by the American 
collector. James was sent by the King to explore the North- 
west Passage, and underwent excessive hardship and difficulties 
in that attempt during the years 1631-32. He fell in with Fox 
(author of the " North "West Fox ") during his voyage. 

Most copies of the map have the portrait of Captain 
James in facsimile. In the above it is the genuine original. 
Critics frequently censure the gallant explorer for the littleness 
of geographical information contained in his book, but the map 
is assuredly free from any such blame-worthiness, for it contains 
a singularly correct delineation of the high latitudes in which 
Hudson, BaiBn, James, and Fox pursued their search for the 
Noi'th West passage.
